Excerpt from The Call of the Land: Popular Chapters on Topics of Interest to Farmers

"Now, as ever, to the nation and the race as to the individual, Nature, the unrelenting task-mistress of the centuries, holds out in one hand her horn of plenty and in the other her scourge. This country has brought itself within reach of the thong while grasping at the satisfaction of present appetite and forgetting the primal relation between man and the earth. The path to prosperity is still open. The divinity of the earthly life is at heart kind. Under her rule there is work and abundant reward for all, but these must be won in her designated way and in none other. Her pointing finger, that has never varied since man came upon the earth, shows the old and only way to safety and honor.
