Book Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Book Fanning-. There 'is a wide-spread conviction that a man who habitually studies farm journals is most sore to fail when he comes to carry out the practical details of the farm. That there ÍB some reason for this belief there is no question. There are men who can talk and write fluently and well on agriculture, and yet prove miserable failures on tho farm. Such failures' do not come from want of knowledge, but from the want of executive ability. There is a great difference between perception and execution. A man who is thoroughly conversant with the theory of agriculture, and with those BoienceB upon which scientific agriculture rests, such as chemistry and geology, has most probably spent the greater part of his life in the student's cell, and has never tried to learn the practical details of agriculture, just as a military man may be a martinet in the drill room and yet fail in the more important work of directing +he storm of battle. An .engineer may plan a railroad or a bridg...

Dairy Hystéries. [AMERICAN DAIRYMAN.] Everybody know» the value of practic.il experience in solving dairy mysteries. The writer of this at one time bad the &s¿ittioce of one man to help hinfi|6 all the work in a butter factory, or creamery, where all the milk from a half dozen herds of cows was made into butter, The butter sold at top figures in a city of a hundred thousand in* habitants. Great care woe taken in keep* ing accounts with milk, cream, butter and churning, lhere hos already been such diversity of opinion upon the quality of the butter and amount produced, and the ease or difficulty of churning sweet or sour .jreaua, that we tested this matter thorough- ly. As to the labor of churning sweet and sour cream, we could see n* difference what- ever. It was our custom to take turns at the churn, and as about one-half of the cream, in warm weather when it was bot work to chum, was sour and the other half sweet, it ! would have been an easy matter for us to have raised a...

I knew whom I had in my audience, and I said : " Ladies and gentlemen, Mrs. Falkner, who lives a little way out from here, gave me some interesting incidents with re- gard to her son. " ' My boy,' she said ' was a drunkard. He signed the pledge.' He said, ' Mother, I will go away from home. I will not stay in the midst of temptation, but I will keep this pledge.' " He went away, but she continued to hear good news from him. By-and-bye, after he had gone a little over two years, a letter reached home to say-' Mother I am coming home to spend Thanksgiving with you.' " ' My boy is coming home to Thanksgiving. Well, his poor mother will get a dinner for bim worthy of New England ; and if there is but one guest, it shall be a famous dinner.' "And he came by stage into the town, which stopped at the door of Solomon Par- son's tavern. The stage passed on. It was just after dark. Some young...
