Handled steel affair. They simply
can’t do it, and they won’t. General
Guzman Blanco, who was always
favorable to the introduction of labor
saying 'machinery and methods, at
one time attempted to enforce the use
of improved implements, but he was
compelled to give it up as a bad job.
The productiveness of the republic
might be enormously increased, as
Guzman realized, by enabling one
man to do the work of two, or six, or
ten, for the great drawback is scarcity
of labor; but the peons are stubborn,
more stubborn than stupid, and will
insist upon doing everything just as
their fathers did, and their great
grandfathers for that matter. It is
the same spirit, the same rests' ance to
innovations, that ctfuses them to ship
their-coffee and sugar upon the hacks
of donkeys instead of the railroad;
that requires the payment for pro
duce in coin instead of checks, and
causes that coin to ho hidden away

That the method of plowing wilt
soon be revolutionized to a great ex
tent on' the prairies of the West, there
call ho longer be any doubt. The far
mers arc already clamoring for a steam
plow that will be simple and practical,
and they will be certain to get it soon
er or later. In this age of invention
and improvement it is said that when
ever a want becomes general, there
always springs up something to supply
the necessity. Every mechanical im
plement now in use, calculated to
cheapen production and save manual
labor, has arisen from the urgent needs
of mankind, and hence the steam plow
that is suitable to the farmer of a-few
hundred acres, will soon be an as
The self-binder did not make its
appearcnce in the -harvest field until
the Western praries furnished more
grain than could possibly be harvested
byhand with profit, and the steam
thrasher soon followed, bacause the
same want was the parent of both,
the same may be said of the broadcast
seeder, the press drill and the gang
plow. The old-style grain cradle that
our fathers used to swing, with their
wide scythes and five crooked wooden
fingers or prongs, is a thing of almost
tbe forgotten past, which has been laid
Ssidc.forever’ with the old-fashioned
wooden mouldboard plows. In agri-
cultue, as in everything else, new
methods have been inaugurated, and
in every step ol progress the object
has] been to save labor and make
farming easier and more lucreative.
'^SPhere is really little in the way of
su^essfully Applying steam power to
plowing and harrowing, now that there
are so few “stump fields,' 1 and a news
paper; called Stoves and Hardware,
printed in St. l.ouis, and prinipally de
voted to the interests its title implies,
thinks that the wonder is that some
inventor, who would like*to make his
fortune out of it, has not come for
ward ' v ' l h a small and simple steam
plow that will fully serve the purpose.
