Excerpt from Agriculture: For Schools of the Pacific Slope
Agriculture is the most fundamental of all indus tries, the foundation and condition of civilized exist ence. The naturally growing fruits, roots, and other eatable products of forests and plains and the wild game and fishes of streams and seas are everywhere found to sustain only a roving and more or less savage population, few in numbers and failing to progress from century to century. Agriculture makes it pos sible for thousands to live comfortably where previ ously only a few individuals managed to obtain a scanty living without it; and, as agriculture is improved, still more people are able to live within a given area without warring over the means of existence. Mining and all the other important industries would quickly cease were agriculture to cease even for a short time, as they are sometimes obliged to do in India a%else where for lack of rain or irrigation water.
