Agricultural rural improvement articles consist of the preservation of food, the importance of vigorous potato stock, the value in painting barns, the profitability of commercial fertilizers, the need for a water supply throughout the farmhouse, and the need for good roads. Horticultural articles pertaining to rural improvement include how gladioli can beautify the home, and the farm garden.
