FARMERS' LIFE INDEPENDENT.
To Insure Success n City Mnn Must
Hnro Soino Capital.
Farming as a new occupation for
a city man Is, of course, surrounded
with perils but If these can bo
successfully surmounted, and ho and
his family becomo satisfied with what
they learn to know of tho luro of tho
land, ho . is sure of tho future both
for himself and those near him.
Ownership of a tract of land largo
enough to support a family, and
knowledgo how to get that support
out of the land, frees a man com
pletely from tho dangers and ap
prehensions which Industrial and
commercial life Involve. Ho Is Inde
pendent. Whatever may happen to
others, he knows that In his acres
are ample food and clothing. Drouth
sometimes depletes his crops, but so
rarely Is there a drouth to bereave
him entirely that it Is not worth re
garding. The great majority of farmers are
not profit-takers from their lands, or
money Bavers, any more than the
great majority of wage earners in
towns and cities. 7hey do not know
how, and are not particularly anx
ious to learn. Until the remunera
tion of the farm laborer shall be
higher than it is now, through high
er recompense of the farmer, It is
not worth while to say anything
about the prospects ofthe farm labor
er. Ho hasntt any more than the
ordinary laborer in any other field
of work, unless he is a man of un
usual force of character, determined
to work himself up to something
higher. It is still less feasible for a
city man to become a farm tenant
unless he knows at tho outset how
to farm how to get out of the Boil
the money with which to pay his
rent. To go onto a farm without
capital and without knowledge of
farming would not be a sensible thing
If thero is some capital to start
with, the move to a farm can be
made with prospect of success, pro
vided thero is determination to work
in order to win. This was tho case
with a farmer who took tho prize
In the 1909 Iowa state fair for tho
championship ear of corn, which was
sold at auction for ?160. Ho had
driven a laundry wagon in Des
Moines for years before he finally
concluded to try his luck with land,
of which he knew little or nothing.
But he was a man of ability and grit,
and if ho had stayed in Des Moines
he would have Anally won out In the
city there just as he did In the
country. He had the qualities that
The advice of W. J. Spillman, ex-
pert of tho national department of
agriculture, Is that any man going to
the land for the first time as a means
of making a living should, If possi
ble, take a preparatory course in
some school of agriculture. A good
opening for him is to become a gard
ener In the suburbs. If he can raise
a surplus he is sure of a good mar
ket. And, anyhow, he can likely
keep his family and acquire experi
ence until qualified for broader work
Mrmy men have made the transition
in this way from city to country life.
Others havo become dairymen in a
small way, or poulterers, or fruit
growers. All tho knowledge thus
secured Is essential to the successful
management of even a small farm
wnere attention is given to more
details than If one were relying ex
clusively upon the land.
It might as well be understood at
the outset that It is practically 1m
possible now to break into farm
ing without some capital to begin
with. A generation ago, or less,
there was plenty of land to be home-
steaded. Especially. In tho middle
west, where most of this land was
available, tho soil was rich and its
fertility needed no attention. Here
It did not take long for tho beginner
to learn how to farm successfully.
When good land was thus so plenti
fully available for tho mere asking,
thousands of farm homes were es
tablished by men who had no previ
ous knowledge of the business.
"At the present time," says tho de
partment of agriculture, there is
practically no desirable land loft for
Ho who wishes to own a farm now
must buy the land. And it is often
tho case that the land In the loca
tion where he would purchase has
been worn out by slipshod methods of
cultivation. While thl3 of course re
duces Its value. It puts tho buyer to
the labor and oxpenso of a resuscita
tion that may require years of ap
plication. Ho who has had no ex
perience as a farmer goes on tho
land usually with a full appreciation
of his ignorance and under tho cir
cumstances this Is an advantage, for
he Is anxious and willing to learn.
Moreover, ho Is not hemmed in by
traditions and hallucinations in con
nection with land service which of
ten are detrimental to men who havo
been raised on the soil.
There is a wonderful amount of
valuable literature now available
about farming from state and feder
al sources, and tho now farmer who
would do tho right thing need not do
tho wrong thing if ho will but seek
tho many uuthorltatlvo sources of In
formation open to him moreiy ior
the asking. But In these days a man
cannot go to farming without money
to start with auy moro than ho can
engago in merchandising.
How much does ho need? This
dopends on tho prlco of the land and
the magnitude of his enterprise. Ho
may beglu with an acre or with a
hundred acres. Success Is possible
with either, but moro likely with tho
Bluglo aero thim with tho hundred,
If thero is no prior experience by
either, unless tho bigger farmer has
monoy with which to hire a farm
The usual wealthy city man with
a country homo has a placo that
costs him a good deal moro than ho
Is getting out of It. Ho is a farmer
in a sense, but not in tho sonso un
der consideration here. Ho does not
have to rely on his land for his llv
Ing. It is simply his fad, which is
all right. But ho should not bo held
up as an enviable examplo of what
a man Is ablo to make out of tho
soil. On tho contrary, he is a shin
Ing examplo of what a man Is ablo
to put into tho soil.
But with all tho obstacles and per
ils in thq way of an Inexperienced
man entering upon a now life as a
larmer, u ho shall master It ho will
una that bo has come Into many nd
vantages. Ho no longor need fear
being displaced as to a means of
livolluood. His tlmo is his own his
life Is completely Independent. Ho
may produco practically all tho food
required by his family. His actual
money expense need bo very small
whllo at the samo time his stand
ard of living, from tho standpoint of
ioou, may do very much higher than
among quite well-to-do people In
town or city. If ho wants morn tlinn
this off his farm ho can got It, If
ho knows how. If ho doesn't know
hpw tho fault Is his and It is up to
mm 10 team now. Nature provides
tho land, but tho tiller must do tho
rest. Pittsburg Gazotte-Timea.
A Tip on Oats.
According to tho Saturday Evening
Post, a man who had a country place
on Long Island came to New York
ono morning to do a llttlo speculating.
He waa a great believer In tips.
On tho ferryboat It camo to him
that ho had had somehow n tip On
oats. Ho couldn't remember Just -what
It waa, but somebody had told him to
buy oats. So when he reached his
broker's office ho looked into oats a bit
nnd bought some. Oats were active.
Ho pyramided skillfully and hy tho
closo of the market was 87.0TO ahead,
Of course such luck as that had to
bo celebrated, and it was. As the cele
bration went on tho oats buyer told tho
story several times and each tlmo took
on lmportanco in tho recital as an oats
buyer until ho Anally became tho oats
king. He reached his railroad station
somewBrat late and found the -stable
man waiting for him with a trap.
"By tho way," said tho stableman,
"did you remember to order that five-
bushels of oats I asked you to buy this

Onr system of protection Is not for
