THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GIiNERAL
la t fattittr:
A GOOD DIALOGUE
[The scene of the following Interesting
Dialogue is that of two farmers on opposite
sides of a fence. Mr. Smith, who has beside
him a basket of very small potatoes, is lean
ing on the fence looking wistfully over at
Mr. Junes, who is digging a splendid crop of
big Potatoes. A picture of the scene was
prepared with the original dialogue, and
should be here, but we have not the engrav
ing at hand. The dialogue is pleasing and
instructive, and should be read by every
Over there, over there.'
M. Smith—How is it, neighbor Tones, that
your potatoes are so large and fine, while
just over the fence, on similar soil, mine are
as small as pullets' eggs, and precious few at
Mr•. Jones— I manured this field with
Mr. Smiti—Pshaw. All the Cincinnnati
hog-killers couldn't supply brains enough fur
this ten-acre field.
Mr. Jones—l used human brains, of which
there are plenty.
Hr. Smith—Nonsense—Now don't make
fun of me because Lin unlucky, and Provi
dence has sent yon a good crop.
Mr. Tones—Providence helps those who
help themselves. I used my own brains on
Sncith—So did I mine, and they are
as good as anybody's,
fones—Ah I There's the trouble. You
know it all yourself: I don't, and so I all
the outside help I can. I've been collecting
other men's brains for my, land for twenty
years, and you see one result in this crop.
31r. Smith—Yes, I see the result, but I
don't understand it.
Mr. Tones—Well, when we began here 20
years ago. I thought myself a good farmer,
but 1 believed others bad good ideas, too,and
I made it my business to get at their thoughts;
some I found in agricultural books and pa
pers, others I picked up at the County Fairs,
by asking how the big things were raised,and
often I've got a good hint from a neighbor.
Jfr. Smith—l've always been down on this
"book farming," but your crops stagger me,
they're real knock-down arguments. I'm
sick of the poor show I get for all my work,
and am desperate enough to try anything for
Jones--I'll give you my experience ; it
may aid you. About nineteen years ago I
heard that some men who bad been brought
up on farms, had clubbed together, and one
of them was going to publish a paper, which
should consist mainly of accounts how differ
ent farmers cultivated various crops, and such
like matters. I sent fur the paper and have
done so every year since, and now I have
nineteen large volumes, every page of which
I have read, a little at a time, and .1;t14,
whole has not cost the produce of a tingle
acre. Why lam astonished when I think
over the ten thousand thoughts, and hints,
and suggestions 1 have thus gathered. What
a blank would be left in my head, if these
thoughts were taken away.
Snialt—But does the practice of far
mers on other kinds of soil and with a dif
ferent climate, suit your wants?
ilk. Jones—Why, no, not exactly, perhaps.
But then, every thought I get from another,
starts a new thought in my own mind, and
thus I am constantly improvino. t' my own skill
and practice. You see, I get all the brains
I can from other men's heads, and compost
them well in my own head with a mixture of
common sense, and then make the applica
tion to my fields. In that way, I have man
ured this crop of potatoes with plenty of
brains. The editor called here last week on.
his Western tour among farmers, and seeing
my gout] crops, he asked me to write out just
how have treated this field for years past,
and I promised to do it as soon as my crops
are gathered. He will probably print it, as
he constantly prints all such practical mat
ters, and perhaps a hundred thousand per
sons will read it; and though nobody else
may do just as I do, many will get a new
hint, and improve upon it. You may read it
if you will.
Smith—T. would like to borrow your
Mr. .Tones—Better take it yourself, for then
you will be more likely to read it. You will
find hundreds of plain talks about various
kinds of crops, during a single year. One
hint gave five bushels of corn on each acre
of a large field in a single year.
Mr. Smith—l can't afford to take it this
Arr. Jones—You would think nothing of
spending two cents a week for extra tobacco,
or a cigar, or candy, and that's all the paper
will cost. how lithe a week it costs to sup
supply yourself and family with a large
amount of information through any-good
Arr. ,Smith—What are the politics of that
3f r. Joncs—lt doesn't touch politics. It is
devoted to such subjects as Field and Garden
crops, Animals, etc., and has, besides, a good
deal about Woman's Work, which wife says
is worth more then ten times the few pounds
of butter it costs to pay for the paper. Then
there is also a department for theyoung, folks
containing many things which please the
children—not mere trashy stuff, such as is
too often printed for them, but information
that will have a good influence on them. I
would sell a dozen bushels of wheat to have
my young people get the good reading in that
paper, but the average price of one bushel
will pay for it a year. My John says he can
pay for it easy with the eggs from two or
three hens. If I was a mechanic or merchant
and had only a little garden, I should take
the paper to tell me how to make the best use
of the little plot; and if I had not a foot of
land I should still want it for my wife and
2111% Smith—Does the editor know anything
about farming ?
Arr. Tones—The editor who owns and pub
lishes the paper was brought up on a farm,
where he learned to work. He has studied
all the books on farming, and experimented
for years in the laboratory, and has besides,
traveled all over the country to see what was
doing. Then he has several associates—Far
mers, Gardeners, and Housekeepers, who
know what they write about, and among
them all they do gather up a wonderful lot of
information every year. The language, too,
is so plain, so like talking with you, that I
enjoy reading it. Then, too, every paper has
engravings. which show one exactly how an
imals and plants, and implements, and house
hold furniture look, much better than words
could describe them. Among these are plans
of buildings, that help one to plan others ; and
also many very fine large pictures, which are
worth more than the cost of a whole volume.
../fr. Smith—l suppose those engravings
and descriptions are partly to help the editor
sell implements or fertilizers.
Mr. Junes—Not at all. The editor keeps
nothing of the sort to sell, so that he may be
perfectly free to praise or condemn anything,
according as it may lie valuable or worthless
to his readers. You would laugh to see how
he comes down on poor inventions, patent
manures, and all kinds of humbugs.
lb . Smith—ls the paper adapted to our
part of the country ?
Jonrs—Exaetly. Soils and crops and
climates differ, but the general principles of
cultivation are the same everywhere, and
here is the benefit of a paper published for
the whole country. Every reader gets new
ideas by learning what is done somewhere
else ; and further, I find that the paper has
letters from every part of the country, and
one or more associate editors in different sec
tions, so that we get information from many
regions and our own too. One thing I must
mention particularly. The editor is constant
ly warning his readers against kumbuys, tel-
Una. how sharpers take advantage of people.
Why, I was just going to send a dollar for
an article advertised in glowing colors, when
I found it shown up as a humbug in this pa
yer. But I can not stop to talk more now—
I have such a lot of potatoes to harvest.
Afr. Smith—l wish I had. I must try that
paper a year, and see what there is in it. I
can manage to save two cents a week.
Mi.. Tones—Never fear.—lf you don't - find
it pays, I'll buy your copies at cost, for my
boys to keep.
Mr. Smith—What did you say the paper is
Mr. Tones—The American, Agriculturist.
It is published in New York City. The edi
tor, though one of our country farmers, and
living in the country, finds he can publish it
cheaper there, where printing, and paper,
and mailing facilities are all convenient.
Mr. Smith—How shall I get it ?
Jones—Simply inclose a dollar bill in
a letter, giving your name, Post Office, Coun
ty, and State plainly and direct to ORANGE
J uno, 41 Park Row, New York City.
Mr. Smith—When does a volume begin ?
Mr. Jones—The twentieth volume begins
Jan. Ist, but all who send in the dollar now,
get the remaining numbers of this year, in
addition to the whole of next year's. So if
you subscribe now, you get fourteen months'
papers. The proprietor also offers some val
uable premiums to those who get up lists of
subscribers. Send for the paper, and you
may afterwards find it well worth while to
make up a club. Some 1700 persons have
got good premiums in this way during two
years. Some of your German neighbors
would join you, perhaps, for the Ayrieultu
rist is printed separately in German, I did
intend to start a club myself, but I have so
many potatoes to dig, I cannot get the time.
My sister-in-law in lowa, got up a club last
year,and received a premium of a $5O Wheel
er & Wilson sewing machine ; an old acquain
tance in Wisconsin got two or three good
farming implements, and a young nephew of
mine in Ohio got a beautiful copy of Web
ster's great Dictionary. These things only
cost them a little time, showing the paper
evenings and election day. Send in your
subscription and the first paper will tell you
all about the premiums. I forgot to tell you
that every year the publisher also sends out
to all his subscribers who want them a lot of
choice garden and field seeds.
3fr. Smith—What does he charge for them?
.111 r. Jones—Nothing; they are sent free,
except the postage. They are of the best
kind and one single parcel I got last year
was worth more to me than the price of the
Hr. Smith—l'll try it a year, any way ;
if half what you say is true it will be a good
Mr. Jones—You'll find every word I have
3/).. Snzith —l'll send this very night, while
in the spirit of it.
Mr. Jones—Do it, and you'll always thank
me for this talk. Good day, I must hurry up
digging my potatoes, Iv'e such a lot of them
—thanks to a hint in the .Agricalturist.
Mr. Smith—flow did you say I should di
rect the letter containing the Dollar ?
