I A half century ago there was little In tli farmer's life that was attractive to a young niau, says The American Cul tivator. Thoso who remained on tho farm were apt to do ko either because of family ties which seemed to bind them at homo, or were those who lacked ambition, energy or ability to find einpldyment elsewhere. Few cared to come to tho farm who were not bom and brought uu- there, while cities aud manufacturing towns were filled with farmers' sons and daughters, who were seeking for easier and more remunera tive employment thau they found at home. It was not necessary to seek far to find the cause of this. The hours of farm labor were long during the great er part of the year. Nearly every task Indoors or out called for strength rather than skill, nnd perseverance more than Judgment. A living might be obtained nnd some managed to ac cumulate property, but there was little money to be handled, and It really seemed as If It was a life of hard toil and little compensation. The change of seasons brought some change of work, and yet It was monotonous. No machinery lightened labor and there were but few amusements excepting ilurlng the long winter evenings. Th? farmers and their wives who worked during nil the hours of daylight had little chance for sociability and little to Interest them outside, of their own flairs. Today farming Is far different from what It was as we remember It. Ma chinery has been Introduced so that horse or steam power are doing those things which were then done by human strength. Skill to direct and guide are in demand and muscular power Is not severely taxed In the day's labor. Even the few tools which survive from that day, the scythes nnd forks, hoes and shovels, are now made so light and perfect that they seem more like toys than the Implements of hard labor that our fathers used. Better animals nnd poultry have come Into fashion, and the care of them becomes nn interesting t ask t be cause we can see how they can be Improved or made more productive by better methods of feed nnd care. The young man who once begins breeding and growing fine stock Is likely to learn to love them while he Is watching their development aud improvement. Better fruit and better vegetables have been Introduced on the farm, and not only Is It a pleasure to watch their growth and to taste them when ma ture, but they can be converted Into cash as quickly as gathered, and the farmer or farmer's son need not go for weeks or perhaps months at a time wlthoutacoln to chink against another, as farmers used to do who had but little to sell until after the harvest of the late fall. Now if he manages right ly the farmer will have crops to har vest almost every week from the thaw ing of the ground in the spring until snow covers It again. The farmer's life Is less solitary as he grows more Interested in his busi ness, lie desires to keep up with the modern Improvements, nnd to do this he visits other farmers to see what they are doing and how they do It. lie must meet with them at the grange or the Farmers' club or tho Institute to talk It over with them, and exchange experiences in such works as they have been doing. Nor Is he contented with being limited to the wisdom of his own county or state. A good newspaper brings him hints and suggestions and new Ideas from other states, and per haps from foreign countries. He knows that In every state there are men studying. Investigating and experi menting to gain knowledge that may be useful to him or to other farmers. With all this, the farmer's home has become more attractive. He has not checked the march of Improvement at Its threshold. Here are device to lighten labor as well ns In the field. In the house nnd around It nre things that are ornamental as well as useful. The bleak, bare house, without shade around it or a flower, excepting the wild flowers of the field, is not often seen now, and many little changes have taken place to render It a home Instead of a mere habitation and dwell ing place. We have spoken of the farmer of to day ns he should be, nnd ns many of them are. The young man who visits such a farm, and sees how pleasant the place may be, and how much there is to Interest one In the work of every season, can scarcely contrast the shop, the factory or the counting room with it without feeling that the farm Is a place for liberty and enjoyment, which makes the others seem like prisons, from which nre barred out the bright sunshine nnd the balmy breezes laden with the fragrance of fruit nnd flowers nnd the song of birds. Nor are a pleasant home and pleasant surroundings nil that farm life canoffer to the young man today. The work of progress has begun, and who shall say that It Is to be checked. To one who strives to excel In any branch of agri culture there seems to be ns much "room at the top" ns In any of the pro fessions. To originate or Introduce a new nnd better breed of animals or fowls, or variety of fruit or vegetables, or some new njethod of Increasing pro duction or lessening labor, may give both fame and wealth to the farmer, ns It already has done for some. We know not why one with ambition, energy and perseverance should not now have as much to hope for and ex pect ns those In other walks of life. Tin farmer today Is not a peasant, crushed by toll: nor nn Ignorant mati. fit companion only for the beasts of burden. He may boast himself the fqual of nny other man, not only In what he does for the world, but what he Is In thf world. Old papers for sale at this ofiico. 2.c a hundred. idewalks.
