“You have no complaint”, a city man said to a farmer, “you have your own milk, butter, eggs, meat and vegetables. With enough to eat and a place to sleep what more do you want?”


“Well”, said the farmer, “you come around a few months from now and you will see the fattest, sleekest, nakedest farmer you ever saw.”




Ranches in some parts of the West (USA) are by no means always a paying proposition. At such a place a traveller stopped, seeking a night’s lodging. Discussing with his host hard times in general, the stranger asked, “How in the world do you manage to make enough on this place to run it?” His host pointed toward his hired man at the far end of the table.

“you see that feller. Well, he works for me and I cant pay him. In two more years he gits the anch. Then I am goin’ to work for him till I git it back!”




The Department of Agriculture is the constant recipient of queries and pleas for advice from householders with small lawns and gardens as well as from farmers. The story is told about the man who had fought a losing battle against dandelions on his lawns. He wrote to the department complaining how much he loved his lawn and begging them to help him save it. In due course, the Department of Agriculture replied with the practical suggestion that he learn to love the dandelions too.
