THE DUKE'S ADVICE. FARMERS NEED NOT TRUST TO THE PROMISE OF POLITICIANS. The Duke of Devonshire, speaking at the Jubilee Show of the Craven Agricultural Society on Saturday, said, in his view, co-operation in agriculture ought to be the most valuable to the farmers. If there continued to be a migration of labourers from the country to the towns, that was not due to agricultural depression, but to the superior attractions of the towns. He attributed.. much of this migration in recent times to the imperfect system of educa- tion in our schools. The education which labourers' children had received had been directed rather to preparing them to become clerks or shop assistants than useful agricultural labourers. The girls had been led by the same system to think that they would be better and happier as dressmakers or waitresses than as dairymaids or useful house- wives. They had almost too many advisers on the subject of agricultural depression. They had political advisers who put forward the remedies ranging from land nationalisation to Tariff Reform. Before putting any faith in any of these remedies, let them look all round, and when they were told that better prices were the only remedy for agricultural depression, consider how much more they might have to pay for everything which concerned their homes and their living. They must not expect that any statesman or Parliament would ever work a miracle for them. They must put their own shoulders to the wheel, and remember that Providence helped those who helped themselves. —————————————————
