How to Make a Goad Farmer.
Many a slillful mechanic is spoil
ed by studying law, and becoming
only a small attorney. Likewise
many an admirable cultivator of
the soil is ruined by substituting
finances and tancy prints tor tarm
ing. Perhaps an illustration of
this development of taste and na
tural aptitude for business may be
read witn interest and pront.
Some years since, an - opulent
gentleman of New York had two
sons. As they had nearlv reached
mature years, he thought of the
profession to give them, and was
perplexed.' fie consulted their
tastes, desirous of being in some
measure controlled by the fancy or
desire they . might manifest. One
of them resolved to be amarchant,
to which the parent yielded ready
assent. The other expressed a wish
to be a furmer, at which the father
could not cnoeeal his astonishment.
ho matter was discussed a long
time, and warmly debated, but the
atter son was unyielding in ex
pressing his preference. Well, the
father assented, with this prouwo.
he son was to co upon a farm, en
ter into all the details of the work,
anor in com ana neat, rain or
shine, summer and winter, and per
form all the usual menial labor ot
hired man, in fact, become a
practical fanner. If, after passing
through this ordeal for an entire
year, he still wished to follow the
n ess, a good farm should be
purchased, and he installed as its
ropnetor. Iho father thought
the labor, hardships, aud privations
of a farmer's life, to a vouner citv
ad, reared in opulence and ease,
would cure him of his delusion.
Now for tho result. :
The year was passed in all the
various occupations, incidental to a
hard -wording, practical farmer.

"Well," my sou, said the father,
"what has been your experience in
farming, and what is your decision

tormine for yourself-" ,
"Farming is what I liko," was his
reply, "and it is in this field I must
