[ INTRODUCTION and CLICKABLE INDEX to the Farmer's Practical Guide]
ARMING in the opening years of the 20th century is not what It
was a quarter of a century ago—and every one is glad it is so.
It is no longer a chance occupation taken as a last resort. It has
become a profession and also a trade. A profession in that it is successfully
followed by those who recognize that underlying it are scientific principles
which must be mastered and if followed lead to success and prosperity. As
a trade it is recognized as a calling which can be mastered by years of
apprenticeship. , In any case the farmer must have his library and his
journals as do all other men who work intelligently in any calling. His
work is no longer mere muscular effort, but also brain force and energy.

given, but also many illustrations are made and shown to assist one who
tries to follow the descriptions. The symptoms of diseases of all kinds of
stock are so carefully described that they may be easily recognized and the
necessary advice is given to give immediate relief, or in turn to meet the
This book will also be invaluable for the help it gives on the care of
small animals, bees, gardens, orchards, and plant life. These subjects are
not usually so well treated in the ordinary farm book.
It is recognized that the farmer‘s wife is his “ help meet " and should
have a place in this book. So several pages are devoted to her interests in
the house, while her good man is busy with the farm, the barn and the stock
