being worked in St. Clair county, the
method being a stranger looking for a
suitable farm to purchase for his son.
He becomes particularly struck with
some farm, examines everything with
scrupulous care, is a star boarder for a
few days and then hears of another
piece of land which he would like to
look at, and then he will return. The
stranger never comes back, his whole

A writer in the Baltimore Sun says:
"Whether farmers get their rightful
share of the farm profits depends not
only upon their ability to work and
plan, but also upon their ability to
market what they have to sell, as well
as upon the carefulness of the wife
also. Por instance, the farmer may be
very careful about feeding his cows,
keeping them clean, etc., but unless
the housewife supplements his close
attention with the same care of the
milk, cream and dairy utensils, hi3
extra work amounts to but little. Wo
have now in our mind's eye a farmer
who receive five cents above the market
price for his butter, from the fact that
his city customers found that the qual
ity was the same throughout the year,
and as good as any to be found in the
market. Now this extra five cents is
all profit, and he is entitled to it. Nor
i3 that all the profit, for when once n
customer is obtained it is usually for a
whole season, and a market thus opened
for other produce. In this way much
time is saved in marketing, and middle
men entirely dispensed with. It brings
him in the cash, and tlui3 enables him
to buy where he can get the, most for
the money, which is another profit ho
reaps. It is always best for a farmer
to establish a reputation for selling a
good article, in order to get his full
share of the profit on anything he has
to sell. Another thing, a farmer, in
order to make ready sale of any kind
of produce direct to the customer,
should establish a reputation for honest
dealings, i. e., never representing an
article to be a little better than it really
is, for confidence once lost is never
