—lt is evident there is a gradual rise
in the value of farm property through
out the country. It is not in the natnre
of the boom, but people are becoming
convinced that the farm offers a safe
investment and furnishes a permanent
home. The keen competition of trade
with low margins, and the frequent
strikes and labor troubles for mechan
ics, will in future defer many from
crowding to the cities.
