WiBY BOYS LEAVE THE FARM.
Reasons for the Desertiou of the Farm by
Scores of Bright Boys.
[J. C. Alts, in Home and Farm.]
Why do our boys leave the farm 4
a question that is often asked
d variously answered. Without
mpting to notice the many
sobs that are assigned for the
version and distaste which most
try boys have for the farm, I
d like o express the views of
young farmer, one who was born
raised on the farm, and who
was often tempted to leave the farm
for some other calling or profession.
One of the first reasons for his
aversion to the farm is the pessim
istie view of farming that is usually
held by his father and neighbors.
Is it not a remarkable fact that
Mile the physician, the lawyer,
JPCtn erchant, the mechanic, etc.,
always choose their life work and
prepare themselves for a special
pursuit, that the vast majority of
our farmers are not farmers from
choice, but by accident or circum
This is one grand reason why
our farmers fail. 'hey are not
farmers from choice, but by cir
cumstance. Now, to be suecessful,
we must honor our calling. Every
farmer ought to be able to say that
he had rather be a farmer than
anything else. Fancy a physician
a success who considers his jpro
fosson "dog's work ; - yet most of
our farmers belittle their calling,
mtle from one year's end to
other, and then wonder why
eir;boys leave the farm for,the
