" It won't be but five cents, you know, and a nickel won't bust yer bank account. It's wonderful how much shine you can get for a little money. What do you say?"

There is nothling so gratefful as the soil, and the man is f-tolilmh who attemplts the cultivation of more land than he can keep in good heart. If any one trok the trouble to analyse the returns of the varilous sized farms, he would in variably tind that the small hohlings gave the greatest acreable yield ; thel old saying, " What is worth doing at all is worth doing well," was inever intro applicable to any work than to that of farming. We have had seeasonls occasionally, and partial faili es in our crops, buit even then tle careful, practical man always has the ad vaitage.
