Will it Pay.
But will it paj to use more capital in farmiug ? If ire Could calculate on Ret ting present prices, there can be 110 doubt that it wonld pay well. And, at all erents, you cannot have good farming without "the use of a large working cap ital, or of liberal credit, and it is quite certain that, if good farming will not pay poor farming will not. And as agricul ture is the main business of the nation farming will pay in the long run, if any thing pay*. This question, so often asked, and seldom answerd, "Does farming pay?" is a very ibsnrd one, Of course farming pays- Faruiprs do get a liv ing, and it is rare that one of them fails. I have three neighbors One camo from the eastren part of the State, when the country was new.— lie took up 160 acres of land, clear ed it, fenced it, lived probably, at first in a log house, •worked hard, but enjoyed himself. lie is a capilol far mer, up early in the morning, attends to his stock, always has his crops sown in good 3eason, treat 3 his land liberally, and gets nmple returns. — Heeotnmeneed with little,has borught up a large family, given them a first class education, and is probably to day worth $2/>, oo') to £30,000. True it Ms taken Lim 40 years toaccumu lato this amount of property and nearly all of it has been derived from the advance of real estate. Still he has had a good living, has enjoyed life, is an intelligent public-spirited, energetic, and generous-minded gen tleman, and enjoys the respect of all his neighbors. lam sure such farrn ing pays. I have another fteighbor who has a farm of equally good land. He is a well educated man, and seems to work hard, but he is always behind with his work. He occasionally gets a good Crop, but the generality is hardly sufficient to pay even for tho labor bestowed in preparing the land. He is in debt and seems to depend more on chopping and selling wood to meet his payments than ou raising crops. His fences are out of repair, and tho land is full of weeds. Still he gets a living for himself and large family, anil, I suppose, even in this, we must conclude that "farming pays." I have another neighbor, whose land is low, but would be very productive if attention was given to surface drainage. The same creek runs through the south end of my farm.— It is choked up by old logs, branches and fall«n trees. The water sets back in the Bpring, and floods his land. 1 offered to do jt for him, if he would give me the wood, but no, ho intended to do it himself. I pre sume he has been intending to do it for years. A good portion of his land does not produce enough to pay the taxes, and the dryer portions are not half worked and yield the most mea ger returns. I passed his house this morning. He was cutting some hay on the low land. His oats are har- Testcd, but nearly half of them were still lying on.he ground among the clods, and his wife thrashing the oth er in tho barn with a flail. Now this is rather poor farming' but as the family gets a living I suppose it "pays - " But how much does it pay ? Does he make as much as he would if his eon and himself worked as hard for some other farmer as they do for thomsclvs, to say nothing of the wife ? Ido not believe they make half as much, and certainly their land is not improving, though they probably persuade themselvs that, owing to the improvements of other", it is in creasing in value. Now, 1 have no doubt that an in> telligent enterprising man, with the necessary capital, could take this farm, and increaso its productiveness fourfold. But such a man cannot live in the style of its present ocupant and his wife would not want to thrash in the barn. And so the real qucsv tion is whether farming will afford sufficient profits to enable an educa ted man to live in a style suited to his necessities. I think it will, but there arethose that contend it will not. Can an educated man get a suita ble living by making? Can ho make much more than the illiterate man who sits an the adjoining bench ? Can an educated farmer dig mere pota toes in a day than a good stalwart Irishman ? Can he chop more wood than a French Canadian, or plow better than a Scotchman ? Can (Jen. ! Grant fight in the raDks any better ; than Patrick O'Flaniagan'i The educated shoemaker, soon j as he had learned the trade, *ould [ have others helping him, and by and j by, if made of the right kind of stuff, he would be the proprietor of a large boot and shoe factory, and call to his aid all the cgntrjvances for saving labor that modern science and inven tion can afford. "This is all very well. I see the point. But you cannot make money by farming unless you work yourself.' Very true I never supposed you could. Neither can the educated shoemaker. He probably works harder than any man in the estab lishment, although he does not wax his own strings, or hammer out the lapis. He knows how to do all these things. And so must a farmer be acquainted with all the details of his business, and give them his undivid ed attention. But must he necces sarily do his own ploughing, dig his own ditches, and husk his own corn ? Work he must, and so must a man ufacturer and professional man.— i But what work shall ho do '! If he has men husking corn by the bushel he should s?e that they husk clean, and t : e up the stalk well, and make the bundle into stocks that will shed rain, and not blow down in the first wind. He must fee that he does not cheat in measuring the corn, aud that it is properly sorted. lie can make more by attending to such things than by husking himself. And jso it i-s in nearly all the operations jof the farm. Especially must he see to his stock. He will find ten men that can dig potatoes, husk corn, hoe plow, cultivate, and even build stacks and dig underdriins, to one that can be entrusted to feed pigs or take care of the cows. To neglect to fed prop erly—to starve this week and surfeit the next, cost one half the feed. But I am wearying you. I am sat isfied, however, that this enbject must recieve the attention of farmers.— j Those who intend to make agricultu j re their business should study it thor roughly, and make themselves master jof every detail, They must know j how to do all kinds of farm work, and should study especially how to direct others. It is frequently easier to do the work one's self than to show an other how to do it, but it is bettor, in the end, to bear with a bungler than j to let him stand idle while you do the j work. John Johnson is employing con- I trnbands on his farm, and likes them welt I though he says, "they cannot work 'hem- S -elves to work." That is porcisely my j idea. A man with a large farm must | know how to set others to work, and see I that they do it properly, and he will find j that this will give him enough to do without going into the field to plow him | telf. Nearly all the labor wo can cow j tnand is unskilled, and this state of j things will continue. There are now ! thousands of Chinese at work on the i Pacific Rail road, and when we think | that one-third the population of the globe j is in the Chinese Empire, it will not be surprising if the high wages paid in this country, should induce hundreds of : thousands to emigrate to San Frnne : sco, and from there over the Pacific Rail road to the miues of Colorado and the prairies l of the Great West. They will not be able | to "get themselvs to work," t and the young farm»rs of the country should ed ucate themselves for the task. There is | not one present They havo not beeu trained to direct others, and it is time this part of a farmer's education reeicv ed attentiou.— American Agriculturalist. PROrESSIOST CALAIS. L. Z.
