She was the widow of a Dutch sea cap- tain, who died suddenly of a fever, in consequence of working too hard, and eating too heartily, at the time when all the inhabitant* turned out in a panic, to fortify the placa against the invasion of a small French privateer. He left her with very little money, and one infant eon, the only survivor «f several children. Tho good woman had need at much management to make both ends meet .and keep up a decent appearance.

Lack of confidence In each other, which comea from a lack of business training, is the reason why farmers are not more gen- erally organized into business associations. Secondly, businoss as at present managed has got the start of the farmers. But America owes a debt to her soil—that is, Amerioan citizens d —and you and 1 are among her citizens. Our ancestors have robbed the soil by unscienttflo farming. But a greater debt is due to t he men our farms have produced, who have made their mark in every department of life and done •o much to build up the country and per- petuate Its institutions. The cities have given very few such men, and it Is to farm training that America owes the greater part of her greatness. This debt can only be repaid by giving a fostering care to ag- riculture from both the state and nation. This can be done by relieving agriculture from laws that bear heavily upon it, by g...
