We are not terminally acipjainted with
K. .Mont-ley of Clinton, Iowa, who writes
th letter nn "Vermont Karniern," else
where copied from the New Holland Kar
nu-r, hut he is evidently a man who known
what 1m wiites alout from hii own olner
Valioti and experience, and he holds the
ftCtdes even-handed between the farmers of
VcniiMii and Vermont with regard to
their respective intelligence, enterprise,
and ability to think for themselves. We
did not undertake to reply personally to
(lov. Hoard's amusing assumption that
Vermont fanners are an antediluvian class
whose brains have gone to seed and who
never rend or think, because such a state
ment would have been considered a preju
diced one ; but Mr. Moseley has done the
work more completely and ably than we
could have done it, and his letter needs no
further comment than this from us.
A Hnil Wont.
Wo object to the too frequent use of the
word "Umuu," applied to the new move
ment in this state to-develop our agricultu
ral and manufacturing resources. It is an
ill pounding word, that carries a suggestion
of disboney and speculation. The term
is properly u.ed when a poor, dried-up soil,
which produces nothing without irrigation,
like that in the vicinity of jos Angeles,
Cnl , is puffed up so that actual sales of
In ml for agricultural 'purjwses are made at
$1(HH( per acre; not when Vermont a
state that exceeds HO states and territories
in the value of its agricultural products, av
eraged to each person engaged in farming
oirers fertile farms that need no irriga
tion, with buildings, fences and other im
provements, nt from $11 to2t'i an acre.
A l.otv Atrrnur Yield of Polnlorx for
tlit M'holr Concur)
It has been stated that the potato crop,
though Horin New Kngland, was a full av
erage taking the whole country. This ap
pfars to be a mistake. The October renrt
of the department of agriculture fcays that
the condition of the crop according to the
reports for that month was, with three ex
ception, the lowest. If the reported con
dition has been accurately made, it indicates
an average yield in the United States of
only about Til bushels per acie. In New
Kngland and the middle states the crop i
the HHtrest on record. The best Mitato
crops are usually grown in the eastern and
middle states, hut this year the states west
of the Misiftippj river have produced the
het crop of the country. Fanners that
have (MitatiH-s to - this year ought to get
a gHnl price for them.
A Nnfr Prcdlrlioii.
lwnl items in the state papers are noting
the ii'turn of Vermouters to purchase
farms or places for permanent residences
in the old vtate. Withm the next five years
the Ick'iiI columns of Vermont papers will
contain hundreds of items similar to the
following from the Free Press, which is
h"iided "filad to get hack to Vermont:'
N. (i Preston, one of the original Ver
moot colony that went to Dakota a few
ears since. Ins returned completely dis
gusted with Dakota and believing that Ver
mout is good enough for any man. Mr
Preston, when he left Vermont, had a good
farm, well staked, and was known as an
excellent farmer a money-making man.
He was not handicapped in anyway, but he
failed to succeed in Dakota He has now
bought a htre farm in Quebec.
Senator S. M. Cullnm, in an article in the
October number of the Forum, favoring
high taritf duties as promoting the interests
of the farmer, says :

This a new song, strikingly different from
the one that lias been sung so much of late
Theie is truth in it, but the fact remains
that the income of the farm is often found
to tie iusullicient for the new life.
Ah Old IMnvr.
The followingagricultural notes from the
United States consul at Jerusalem. Pales
tine, shows what kind of crops are now
raised on this ancient ground. We have
heard people talk alwut old land here as if
it had long ago passed its usefulness; but
there is tx land thHt was cultivated thon
sands nf years ago, and it is not now at all
the worse for its old age. The consul says :
Crops of wheat and barley weretreuerallv

olives is promised. reaches, apricots,
plums and ligs have made au excellent yield

abundant, and the yield of the Jaffa district

t' Kgypt, and the balance consumed or

Mr. Chas M. HINs of llennington, who
lia been talking to the people of Woodford
on the forestry question, has little faith in
state ownership of forests, but he thinks a
little practical instruction in forestry would
be of mure use than anything else. There
are many lumbermen and farmers who
would treat their forests very differently
had they the information that the state at
small expense inHit easily furusih. He
thinks, too, it might be us well to exempt
growing forests from taxation as well as
the saw mills which are the chief factor in
their destruction and Vermont, by the
May, is the only state which does this latter

wisely has the timber been cut from this

The efforts of Commissioner Valentine of
Vermont have resulted in giving some false
impresidohs regarding that state. Criti
cisms ipiite uufawtrahle have been made
that would never have been nude had the
authors of them taken pains to inform
themselves regarding Vermont and its peo-
Hoard's Dairyman, whose editor-in chief
is W. D. Hoard, at present governor of
Wisconsin, assumes that the farmers of
ermout are practicing the old, played-out
methods of forty years ago, in breeding,
handling and feeding the dairy cow, He
further assumes that there ist wonderful
ight of old fog ism in erinont. No one
ill deny hut there is enough ol that in all
sections of the country, but the person that
believes that ermout farmers as a class
have more of it than farmers in other
states, believes an error. The governor
eiuphaire his belief by stating that the
Vermont farmer himself needs fertilizing
as much as his land, and adds that agricul
tu re and agricultural farms are going into
lecay, relerrmg, of course, to ermout.
No one will tienv but the Oeoole in Wis
consin are entitled to a great deal of credit
for the progress that they have made in
farming the past few years, and especially
in dairying. A great deal of this progress
can be attributed to the efforts of such men
as Oov. Hoard and others, who have been
instrumental in organizing and carrying on
ie rarmer institutes in various parts ot
the state. I do not believe it is necessary
'or any citien of Wisconsin to underrate
the dairymen of other states in order to
give Wisconsin dairymen the position to
Inch they are justly entitled. et the
governor said in his comments on Mr. Doug
las's letter that "we talk and discuss and
think and read on these vital questions ten
times as much in Wisconsin with all our
good virgin boil as they do in Vermont."
1 do not believe that statement,and dial
uge proof that will show that the Ver
mout farmers are not a reading people.
There are farmers living in that state that
have been continuous subscribers for the
last forty years to good agricultural papers,
I kuow of scores in that state who have
been constant readers of such papers as
the New Kngland Farmer and Country
Oeutlemaii for at least thirty ears. There
are hundreds that have taken for many
years not less than three agricultural pa
pers each. A careful canvas of Vermont
ould show that as many agricultural pa
pers are taken by its farmers in proportion
to their number us in any state in the Un
ion, if not a greater number.
1 believe Oov Hoard s conclusions were
based lather on what he did not know of
ermout and its people than on what he
lid know. In other words, he has drawn
his conclusions from unfavorable comments
vgardmg Vermont and its people that are
too common in many w estern papers
Winle I know not hi nt: aliout it, I will risk
the statement that Oov. Hoard never at
tended an agricultural meeting in Vermont
r t(nni before a Vermont audience uf an
kind The northwest has no brighter man

lduality, but. like many others, he is mis

tion of each farm, acres hi woodland, pas
turage and mowing land, si.e of house and
barn, fencing, water supply, grafted fruit,
the reason why the farm was abandoned,
and the price and conditions of sales. New
Hampshire has set an example, which, if
cm id a ted by the rest of New Kngland, will
speedily result in placing the six eastern
states iu the front rank of agricultural
states east of the Mississippi, The princi
pal cause given for the abandonment of
farm lands and for tenantless farms, is the
going of young men to the cities, the high
prices und scurcity ot farm labor ami the
extensions of the railroads so as to divert
travel and business to new centres and new
lilies. New Kngland now offers exception
al facilities to persons of limited means for
securing a home at very reasonable prices,
witnan assurance ot a comtortable living.

were good, that have proved
unsatisfactory in wear. The
