The present system <>i cultiva
ting two much laml is most inju
rious, wherever llie farms muke
up to the importance ol tending
less laud and putting it in a bet
ter state of cultivation, wo will
see a great change for (ho hettci
in the farming interests. Every
farmer seems to think lie must
put in all the laud he can possi
bly get and in order to make n
good crop, entirely o\4r4looking
the importance .of potting tin
land in a proper statu fur a crop.
They go for quanily and not qual*
>ty it aaoms. The result is Hint
the laud is not half prepared be
fore planting and a natural con
st quenoe only a half crop at bust.
Men will spend hundreds of dol
lars during the winter to clear
up land that would be far belter
and more wisely spent in enrich
iarg aud manuring up the land
they now have cleared. Not
until the craze for large farms
and many acres of land gives way
to a more enlightened idea oi
small farms well attended to, and
brought up to a higher atato of
cultivation, will we realize the
needed improvement in our farm
ing interests, When ever a man
wishes to buy a farm it seems to
be the idea that he must gut great
many aoreß. No one horse farm
needs more than thirty acres ol
land, 20 in cultivation 10 for tim
ber. We blieve in the great im
portance of every man owning
laud, bat many,who could buy a
few acres of land and make com
fortable hemes on it and a good
living, refuse to do so because
they can not buy at least 160
acres to lie nso'ois and pay tax on.
Let any young man who can buy
20 or 30 acres of land—may not
bo very good land—and go to
work, put up neat cottages and
manure up his place and culti
vate it nicely and you will see
how it will beat renting from
year to year. Any man who
owns or buys up a Urge tract ot
luid grid keeps a hoard ot ren
ters on it is generally an injury
to the community in which he
lives. The policy ought to be to
sell off small fariqs aud divide up
the land and let all who live on
it feel an intent in it as a home.
There*is not much incentive to
the renter to improve and build
up land, churches, schools, etc
nor any other interests as a rule,
a few exceptions—not many.
Then we advise every man to get
a borne if it be even so small and
poor, and go to work to make ii
better, and bis cultivation w.l
soon be far better than that of a
renter. When you get a home
feel that you want to leave it bet
ter than you found it, It is a low
idea in any man to wish to leave
any thing worse than he found
