quoted to discourage such people from
casting their fortunes in with tbe
country. Tbe cases where the city
man and his family have been success
fully transplanted to the country are
too numerous to warrant tbe assump
tion that it cannot be done. At the
same time it must be admitted that
there are difficulties la the way. Tbe
easiest transition Is made by the coun
tryy boy who has grown tired of city
life. He is used to the ways of the
farm, and it will be a short task for
him to learn the new methods and taka
up the furrow at the point where he
left it a few years ago.
For the man who has lived all his
life in the city the proposition is
altogether different and much more
difficult. He has all the ways of the
new life to learn. He is unused to
country life and country customs.
Worst of all. he is unused to country
methods. If a man listens too cred
olously to the land shnrk whe- tells
him that on tbe farm he proposes to
sell conditions are all so perfect that
a gentle tickling of the soil will bring
forth bountiful results disappoint
ment is almost sure to follow. Tbe
real estate men are in-the business
for money, and If they can make a
"sale by minimizing the need of train
ing for farming they are going to do it.

the art, the science and" the business.
Of the three the latter. "is the only
one that the average city man knows

mon sense and a fair amount of bust
ness ability comprise the chief essen
tials to success in handling the busi
ness end of farming.
There remain the art and the sci
ence. For a young man undoubtedly
the best place to learn the science
of farming is in a school or college.
The agricultural college offers the
most complete course of instruction
along this liue. A considerable share
of the enrollment at the agricultural
college Is made up of city boys who
are there to learn the science of farm
ing. I have known many of these

tion that would have shocked the
practical man of the past generation
into Insensibility. I have known many
of them to go to farming or to follow
some line of work closely related to
farming, and I have yet to see the
A college education means a consid
erable cost in both time and money.
The city man who wants to turn farm
er seldom has a very large supply of
the latter. To such men the secondary
courses In agriculture, or "short
courses," make a special appeal. A
short course of a year or two years In
one of these schools will go a long
wuy toward grounding the city farmer
In the principles of scientific agricul
ture. Even such a course Is impossi
ble for the greater share of the city
men who see the opportunities or farm
life and would like to become farmers.
The next best thing is a course of
home study. A number of agricultural
colleges offer correspondence courses
in agriculture, by means of which the
science of agriculture can be learned
quite thoroughly. Tb-n there are a
great number of experiment station
and government bulletins which may
be bad for tbe asking. There are
many good books on agriculture in its
various branches. Last, but by no
means least,, there is the agricultural
press. Much of the advancement that
has been made In agriculture Is due to
the agricultural papers. They stand
for all that Is best and most progres
sive in rural life, and they contain a
fund of information on methods of
farm practice that are invaluable to a
There yet remains the art 'of farm
ingthat is. the art of handling the
plow, of caring for the horses, of feed
ing the cows, of regulating the ma
chinery and the thousand and one oth
er things that the farmer must know
how to do. The only way the art of
farming can be learned is by prac
tice. The best way for the city man
with limited capital to learn is to hire
out to some good farmer by the month.
Farm help is scarce, and farmers are
always glad . to get faithful men at
fair wages. They prefer skilled men.

the business end. He is now In a po
sition where be can plan on going to
work for himself. He will have saved
something from his wages while on the
farm, and be probably bad a little
money saved up before. Then comes
the question of whether to buy or to
rent. A good many beginners In farm
ing make the mistake of tying all their
capital up in land and having noth
ing left for stock and equipment. In
order to make the farm pay the farmer
must have plenty of working capital.
It la usually better to rent for a few
years until enough money has-been
saved to make a fair payment on the
land. Then a farm can be bought
without robbing the equipment fund.
The question of where ;to locate Is an
Important one and one which the con
flicting mass of evidence makes bard
to decide. The irrigated districts of
the west offer some of the best oppor
tunities to be found anywhere. The
country is new, and settlers are wel
come. Land is high, but it does not
take much of it to yield a good living.
The dry farming districts of the
west have been loudly boomed. This
dry farming land can be bought very
cheaply. It costs little to get a start.
At the same time the man who goes
on a dry farm must remember that
only half of bis land will yield a
crop each year, sometimes not more
than a third of it. The principle of
dry farming Is to cultivate the land
for a year or two vit bout sowing a
crop. This prevents the rain which
fulls from evaporating, aud by the
second or third year enough moisture
will" have been stored up to raise a
crop. No one should think of going
on a dry farm without having enough
money laid by to pay expenses for
two or three years without any in
come. Dry farming means many
losses and much discouragement, but
the success of many dry farmers
proves that It offers opportunities to
tbe man who has tbe courage to stick.
The fertile lands of the middle west
have been little advertised of lateaDd
many people are of the opinion that
this part of the country is already
fully settled. Thia Is far from being
the case. The Mississippi valley could
support four or five times its present
farming population with ease. Land
is high, but it Is worth the price. Tbe
middle west offers tbe advantage of
progressive neighbors, good churches,
schools and colleges and modern con-'
veniences of every sort. There are
thousands of chances for tbe city man
in this section.
In the east probably the best oppor
tunities are found in truck farming.
Only a small tract of land is required,
and the returns are large.
The abandoned farms of New Eng
land can be purchased very cheaply.
They can never be made as productive
as tbe lands farther west, but under
proper treatment tbe fertility can be
restored and a very -comfortable pro tit
secured from them.
r- The agrienltural opportpnitlea ot the
south have been little advertised, yet
there Is do section of the country
where the opportunities of the small
farmer are greater. Diversified farm
ing and stock 'raising are a compara
tively new thing In this section. The
men who are growing less cotton and
more corn and hogs and dairy cqfws
are getting ahead. Land Is cheaper
here than in many parts of the coun
try and can be made very productive.
