By E. H. Leland. New York, Orange Judd Company. Whoever travels through the farm districts of the United States must have noted by the frequent attempts at ornamentation that the desire to have something nice as well as profitable is widely prevalent among American farmers. That they do not always succeed or get as much for their attempts as they might, is evidently owing to a want of knowledge, and not of will. This little book is a timely effort to aid these endeavors, and will be found an excellent assistant to a comfortable home, both inside and out.
