pursuits. Then men can, in one year,
try a number of theories that one man
could not put to the test in less than
I'm years. If-one makes fin experi
ment that proves i:nprontable,it i.s his
duty to let his friends know it, that
they may not sutler by repealing it.
If one possesses special knowledge
about varieties of articles of produce,
peculiarities of culture, methods of
preserving or utilizing what is rai-etl,
or anything else of importance to suc

kind enough to inform his neLdibors,
at least, so that they may be wiser and
more successful. In a certaincoiumu

hence, 'unprofitable.' A progressive
man of intelligence ami skill in-ivcd
in from a distant State, introduced
more advanced idea.?, and rapidly con
vert ed the poor land into a fertile,
profitable farm. His neighbors were
kindly enlightened, adopted his wise
example, and soon brought up the
whole community to much greater
prosperity. Of course the man who
taught and those who learned are
much happier. Let it be known that
sellish monopoly of useful information
is suicidal as well as ignoble and un
charitable ; and that few men are to bo
pitied more than those who refuse to
learn by the experience of others.
To further these suggestions.it is re
commended that farmers, girdeuers,
fruit culturists, etc., visit one another
mors frequently, talk together more
freely.publish their experiments more
carefully, and, every legitimate way,
try to teach more and learn more.

arc enormous. Indeed, one of tho
speakers at the 'meeting to which I

that the head of a great manufacturing
