Among other queer things connected with the iiheeler coumpjromise or ad ) juatnmet was the prominent plrt thlken by Mr. A. Hl.

Any fool can IhVfollow a plow by holding on to the i tail, and any findl! can plant wihatever ,fr and whenever he sees his neighbor ra plauting. lint to call this farming, or lv such unthinking animal a farmer, is er to libel the first and noblest calling Ia of man., The truth is, as.the world is Sbegilllling to understand it, it takes As much brains, and brains of aa flue quality, to make a first-rate farlmer, as it does to make a firsrato spici imen of any other business, learned or unlearned. Now we know that 1 o unne biut, a man with a good share of . live braiuseealnjl a ~trte aris gf rr. A new er'haln been inaugurated in - tihe flaraminlg world-the era of think es ing farmers. The time has gone by es when farmers live by main strength ie and ignlorance. The strength is +itill at needed, but it must be directed hI .- thought. Henceforth, farmers will .l have to use their heads as well as at their hands. The old dig and drudge. ot hap-haz;ard mode noust give place to :. labor saving machinery, and an in ur telligent application -of the laws of nature to the wants of the famre re Tle first step, and the hardest, is ,n. for farmers to learn to think. It is t. alwayi miuch easier to work thag to think. Indeed, it is astonishing how , little reia thinking is done ill this . workl, in thie ordhiiary course of working life. We are not disposed to quarrel with s, the general results of the system that ~f prevailed under the old regime. Per . halps it warl the best thatl die labor of hd tihat time was capsble, of working. uf IUnduinti±tlly i iiiiln-iense deal of work was doaaWeiasi weaktIea.mnulated ,was anmple proof. Bitilhe work was alimouast exelusively that of aurnt and maiule muscles, and not all tilhe work of brains. But tihe day of exclusive mi alsele fianming'.is passed. Hence forth there uicst be brain work as well. Machinery of all kinds nlust be called ill to save labor. As a con sequence, the labor tlhatlis needfmnst be more nlelliigent, better skilled. lint neither nlachinery nor improved Shlablr canl be iulrolductd or ualel irofit 4 ably, or iithl satisfaction, by lntlhink. lug farmelrs. Ifenlforth a farmer must not only know hoiv to work 7 himlself, brit how to direct others.
