The progressive farmer keeps up-to-date on what's doing
in farm methods not only in his locality, but all over the
country. To be progressive, a farm paper must do the same.
The Country Gentleman is exactly that kind of a farm
paper. For instance
WHAT THE STATES ARE DOING
is a regular page. In every center of agricultural activity,
everywhere, is a correspondent who watches and sends
to The Country Gentleman the best and newest ideas that
are working out there. They're printed on this page. It's
a mighty valuable page to the man who wants to run his
farm on a business basis.
A dozen other regular departments cover field methods,
farm power, dairying, livestock, poultry, market garden
ing, fruit growing, the interests of the farmer's wife, etc.,
including a department that answers any farm question
free. And always six to ten special articles.
