THE MACMILLAN COMPANY 1924 ComiGHT, 1921, BY THE MACMILLAN COMPANY. Setupandeleotrotyped. Published December, 1924. DEDICATED TO ALL LEADERS IN AGRICULTURE AND COUNTRY LIFE OP TO-DAY AND TO-MORROW PREFACE Many of the great thinkers and leaders of our nation have frequently said that agriculture is the most construc tive occupation of men. The success of any movement, institution, or occupation is largely the result of the inter est, enthusiasm, and energy of the men behind it.

We have failed in the past properly to recognize the work of our great leaders in agriculture. Adults as well as children too often get the idea that great men are made rather as the result of wars and other destructive agencies than by the constructive occupations such as is agricul ture. It is the opinion of the authors that the emphasis should be changed, and alarger part of the time now given to reading should be devoted to the study of the life work of those who have done so much to build our nation through a more scientific agriculture.

Our purpose in preparing this volume is not only to give the proper recognition to many of the leaders of our nar tions greatest industry, but also to teach some of the most important principles involved in the development of modern agriculture. This book gives in story form the progress we have made in many phases of agriculture.

It is intended for use of schools, colleges, and public libraries, and we trust will find a place in the home of all who desire to learn more about the progress of scientific agriculture and the men who have done so much to make America a better and more prosperous nation.
