Practical Suggestions as to Instruction in Farming in Canada and the North-West, and the United States of America, and Tasmania

Excerpt from Practical Suggestions as to Instruction in Farming in Canada and the North-West, and the United States of America, and Tasmania The leading principle of the system we have originated is to make the young men self-supporting from the first, and in this way the self-reliance so necessary to success in a new country can best be acquired. To send them out without the imposed obligation to work and to earn honest payment for their services would not lead to habits of industry, and to that practical acquaintance with every part of the business without which they could not safely be hereafter trusted with farms of their own; and the farmer himself would not have such control over them as would ensure his being able to teach them properly. The farmers selected to receive young men are chie y Position of those cultivating from 160 to 600 acres as mixed grain and stock farms, which are the size and description most general in the States 1' and as' it would probably be on farms of this acreage that the majority of those going out would commence for themselves, it is unquestionably better for them to gain. Their experience in this manner than on larger farms; those, however, who desire to learn on larger farms, and can after wards command the capital necessary to start and carry' them on, can be suitably placed for that purpose, though the: advice 111 all cases is that they should commence in the. Smaller way. We quote the following from the tenth Census of the: United States for 1880, Vol. III. Xxviii. The fees on entering a homestead amount to about 3, and absolute title is given after proof of five years' residence and cultivation each year of some por tion. A capital of 100 would be sufficient to enable a young Englishman to commence in a small way for himself. It may be observed, however, that my Americans start successfully with even smaller amounts.
