A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.--LUKE 12:15.

Although there are but few among the masses of people crowded together in this as in other great cities, who have any direct share in this great business of agriculture, yet we are all aware that it is the prime source of our common prosperity; indeed, I may say, the first condition of the development of our
