The following suggestions from the Wayne County Courier will apply with equal force to this county: FarmerB and theirs families ought to attend county faire. These exhibitions are many of them excellent educators in all branches of agricultura. The prime object is to benefit the farming classes by grouping together once every year the choicest producís of farm, gardeD, orchard, dairy and breeding pens, the latcst ïmprovements in mechanical contrivances, eto., that every man and woman who is present may know just what progress is being made by othera and the possibilities that invait all who dosire to attain to improved methods and their paying resulte. To rnako these faire [ generally attractive there should be from each farm in the surrounding country an exhibition of the choice producte of the season, whether from the garden, field, dairy or houee-wife's pantry and work room. Even if no prize is taken the effect will be a good one on both the farmer and his family. A spirit of rivalry will be created that will stimulate alike young and old to renewed efforls toward the attainment of botter things during the year to come. To farmers who anticípate purchasing new impletnents, or entering on new branches of farming a visit to some of these fairs will be especially benefical from an economical point of view. There is nothing like seeing for one's self ; it is much safer than taking things on trust.
