SATURDAY, JULY 25 1908. THE DESERET FARMER ,9 I
A FEW THOUGHTS FOR THE
SONS OF FARMERS AND
FRUIT GROWERS. ;
Wc take the following article from
the annual report of the Cororadc
State Board of Horticulture, which
was written by Thornton White. ',
Sonic one has wisely said that "the
farm is the best security wc have for
the training and development of
young men, who arc to. make the in-
tcllcctual force and the moral strength
of our community life. It will be '
more than unfortunate if farm life
should from any -cause lose its attrac- 1
tions f.or our young men and its mon- i
cy profits as well.
"The best possibilities for the next
fifty years arc to come from the
homes on the farms. The farm gives ;
' vigor to the body, great moral
strength to the character, and scicn- '
tific research for the mind, all being
important elements that enter into
the building of men who arc to meet
the general dcmaiids of the highest ,
citizenship."
What arc some of the conditions '
that exist today? The answer is sim
ply this: Our young men arc leaving
. Uje, farms and orchards of our fore
fathers and seeking employment in
our cities, on our railroads, in our
smelters or manufactories, of one
sort or another. This to me is a
serious question, both for 5ur young
men and for our farming and horti-
1 culture. If this state of affairs con
tinues for any lenghty period, the re
I suit will be less dignified citizenship
and a great and irreparable loss to
our farming and horticultural inter
ests. The widest and most useful
field that I know of today for many 1
Of our farmer boys is on the farm and
in the orchard. Even now there is a
great demand for technical and prac
tical men in farming and fruit grow
ing, These two industries arc the
vory ba'ckbonc of our nation, and we
cannot afford to let them be a sec
ondary consideration. The time was
whqn it was thought, "Well, I guess
Ave will have to make a farmer of
John as he docs not seem fitted for
Anything else." Not so today; these
industries are calling for the very
best bnains of the country. The young
man of this day, who properly fns
himself for scientific farming and hor
ticulture, need not look long for a
good position, for there is one wait
jug now for the right man. I think
horticulture in Colorado is only in its
infancy. Thousands of acres of vir-

American money, machinery, ideas and enterprise in Agriculture I I
are transforming Cuba and the wonderful Tropical Soil of that Island un- 1 I
der these conditions is producing marvelous results. I I
American Farmers and Fruit Growers in Cuba do not plow with a I I
, stick of wood. Those primitive tools are replaced with the most mod- m I
ern farming implements. More than 100 different Colonization Enter- f I
prises are in operation in Cuba, fulfilling every promise to colonists. 1 I
I The Cuban Commercial company with its New Line of Fruit I I
1 Steamships from Savannah to Cuba will meet the requirements of these m I
1 colonists for quick transportation both ways. m I
I The capital stock of the Company, $3,000,000, par value $10, is be- I I
I ing sold far below the par value and offers to the investor Greater Divi- 1 I
m dend Possibilities, backed by solid business of immense future probabili- I I
1 ties than has ever been within the reach of the investing public. f
The Company has under option 5,000 acres of some of the best f I
land in Cuba and any stock purchased at the low figure above referred to j I
will be accepted at its par value in exchange for land at the prevailing 2 B
cash selling price. f I
Furthermore, every purchaser of stock is entitled to a 1 I

ing given preference in the order of purchase -"First Come, First Served." f I

We want representatives everywhere. Permanent positions and good pay. 1
' Remember the price of the stock is advancing $1 per share every month. The time 1
to buy stocks is when they are low. 1 I

gin soil in many sections will grow
fine fruit if wc only get water on it,
plant our orchards and give them
proper attention. I predict that many
large orchards will be put out in the
not far distant future ,by men of
capital. These men will want men of
brains, bnawn and of practical ex
perience in horticulture to superin
tend these orchards and vnaka them
a paying investment. Where shall
these men come from? Not from
our railroads, o.Tices, stores or shops,
but if supplied at all they must come
from the young men of our farms xnd M
orchards. M
Boys, stick to the old fnrm and pre M
pare yourselves for another step higu- lk

ing your work in the best possible H
