PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. A WORD TO FARMERS SONS. Farmers' sons are quite apt to suppose that they can only attain to any coveted po sition in life through an avenue of some trade or profession. They look about and find the wealthy men nearly all belonging to these classes. They do not stop to con sider that only the wealthy ones come to view; that tor every one of those who has acquired wealth or distinction, ninety-nine others have failed and disappeared, or have .never risen to notice at all. They act on the belief that they are the only persons ,that can be called into pablic lite, ignoring the fact that it is the training they get that constitutes the difterence, rather than the calling. A farmer of equal learning 'and culture with the lawyer would, .we believe, find himself in just as good request, with perhaps many. ctances in his favor, If the Sarmer allows the professional man to mo -nopolzeall the advantages at the start, he must expect to find himself at a disadvan tage all the way through.--Dirigo Rural. ' THE Grange gBulletin in an article on the ,pecuniary purpose of the grange, concludes as tollows: It need hardly be added that the order is better 'and stronger from the fact that those who expected to reap a har Vest where they had not sown withdrew or were dropped, and that those who remained adopted new methods or directed their en ergies into ndw channels. It must be ad mitted, however, that in the aggregate a large number failed to keep their first es tate. Assuming this to be even one-third of the entire number, with false principles as the groupd-work of action, the grange is better without than with them. It only proves, .ith increased force, the necessity for the existence of an organization of the ~rl1cultural class with purposes and aims lnrharmony with the general good and trib utary to a ratlonal progress.' That such is the work '0 the grange is now the accepted belief. At the last annual meeting of the Nation al grange, says the Farmers' Friend, the following resolution, among others, was adopted: We shall demand by our ballots admis siton into the legislature of the several states, and in b$rh branches of the riational congress for representatives of agriculture, qhoses directly from its votaries, as the on ly means of relief. *WAlt O14 BLOOD I Now on hand and fQr sale, at the MODEL GARDEN VIRGINIA CITY, MONTANA, Strawberry plants of all kipds; large English Goosebrryh l oots and cuttings); large mperial Hed OA V-arrant, (roots an. cuttn s) i; large imperlla IIte Vb UrrantsUt, "(roots an out tingS); PLeO 11aut roots; large .ugfnsh led Rsp.. berry roots; tl at Lpants; ; Artichoke; Hobs and Balm; olArura4 bIh Spearamnt; Ameri can Tans ; tarnW Sees or ia kind. ; Asparagu. roots.
