itself more scenee than any other occupation in
the whole circle of human pursuit* and industry
Geology,chemistry, vegetable physiology, all make
a part of the thorough knowledge of this most cx

beginning* of thc vast field of knowledge contain
ed within it. So that if a man can be a there,u~h
agriculturist, he ivill be in thc large sense of the
word a learned man.
farmers however have been, to a great extent
opposed to what tney called science, or book-farm’
