Without the good crop on, the farm, there would nave been no improvement in conditions last year. man.ii 10 much in the welfare of the farm- he should personally devote hlm- lelf to gaining the friendship of the man irno cultivates the soil. The 1 friendship akould be genuine. Where- ever helpful advice or assistance can be given the farmer, it should be giv- en. We want our community popu- lated by live, energetic, scientific aK- rtcnUurallits, and the business men whenever the opportunity offers itiould encourage their farmer friends k to adopt the best methods of farming. A- writer recently dealt wiih this im- matter of cultivating the farm- and we reproduce his article in the tint what Jie had to say will atliiiUlate a greater interest in the wel- fare of the fanner amongst our ness men. The article, short and to the point, is as follows. is a class of men particu- larly Interested and active these days subject of thorough cultivation, it is thS-bankers and business men in the more Important business centres of this country. Their interest and activity in thorough cultivation does not, however, extend to actual "clod but is confined to cultltat- Ing-tKe farmer. I do not mean that all-the 'business men and bunkers in ail our towns are cultivating the far- of them have not yet learn- ed -'the wisdom and .profit. incident to activity. few generations .ago the 'farmer wag considered a low of the dust (If he was considoi all) anil was aneurlngly refen as a "rube." The funny papers filled with characterizations of SI" and "Aunt nnd replete- with cheap jokes, on the "hayseeds." The self-elected unpur strata of the population of this country Invested their savings In Industrial stocks, which proved to be "mere scraps of they bought shares in min- ing companies, and the pay streaks pinched out; they financed oil wells that they found to be "dusters." Mean- while wilh the meek and lov.1v far- mer, there -was each year a seeding and a harvest time, and he, ihroush hard labor and perseverance, prosper- ed. In times of, financial stress, brought about by widespread specu- lation in this country, the products of the farmer's toil, the immense ag- gregate of the farmer's harvest, have been availed as basis of value and have minimized.or prevented financial panics. Instead of determining tho prosperity or lack of prosperity in this country from the condition of the stock markets, it is recognized that the crop conditions on our farms have a strong influence on the na lion's business for the year. 'The importance of the farmer and the farmer's welfare is recognized and the far-sighted business men are cultivating tho farmer. Instead o sitting in their places of business am busying themselves by sending; th' farmer notices of interest due and ad ising him how to run his farm, thest business men are getting out and ting the farmer on the back in an ef fort to make him feel that he is the mainstay of the nation, which is true They are also learning that some o the advice" they have heretofore giv en ths farmer about running hia bu ness is about as valuable as would be the farmer's advice to them about running their stores and banks. Thej are learning that every farm is a fac tory, and that it is just as important to keep this farm factors' going .under full steam as it is to keep up the pay roll of a brewerj- or a broom factor} in If the farmer needs another dairy they help him to'get a rea' cow; it the farmer wants to feed ai lis his own farm, ftiey help him get the feeding stock. They help the farmer with the knowledge that they are helping themselves. 1 not mean that the bankers and busi- ness men are leaving bags of money n every farmer's mail farm- ers all know they are not I do mean they extend financial help where such help is advisable; the worst thing that can_hanpen to the average farmer is for him to borrow money that ha can not use to advantage. "The business men who are not cul- livating the farmer will have to fall :nto line if they remain worthy the name 'business men.' Both the farmer and his farm ben- efit from thorough cultivation of the soil, and by .the same measure both .he farmer, and the business men ben- efit if the business man thoroughly cultivates the farmer."
