SUTHERLAND'S FARM. A Good Type of Farm Evolution now on in Adjoining Townships. Clare is the geographical and commercial centre of a large area of excellent farming country and by reason of her location with two oi Michigan's principal railroads crossing at her door, her future growth is an assured fact. The manufacture of lumber products is in evidence here today while large marl deposits not far from the city and at the Tobacco river a large storehouse of power, transferable to Clareand available for manufacturing purposes, tell of future industrial growth, but to date Clare is primarily an agricultural community and her future is inseparably linked with the development of the farms in the adjoining country, and to even the ordinary visitor something of the possibilities of that agricultural community in the midst of a relatively new country is suggested as he saunters up Olare streets of a Saturday afternoon and counts anywhere from 150 to 275 horses tied here and there while their owners are trading in the various places of business. The impression thus made is deepened as he learns of the increasing quantity of cattle, hay, grain, sheep, butter and eggs shipped '•'it- -■•■«■ 5V* **' - * %%:>i?**':,. *,&' ,*f** Ife^ri'. .&;••%£ }&y£jt. BEG-iSTEKEl) 8K6KT HOBNS AND GRADE CATTLE. other cattle barns 16x66 and 16x40, hog pen 16x25 and tool house 18x32 with windmill and other conveniences. As the land is brought under cultivation it is divided into twenty acre fields enclosed with the best wire fence and each of the fourteen fields bat one connects directly with a lane that leads to the barn yard. The Tobacco river touches one corner of the farm. The soil is varied, one portion being clay, another clay loam, another elm and-ash black muck, another a loamy sand so that any crop peculiar to this latitude can readily be grown, but Mr. Sutherland has adopted for his farm this motto. "Corn, Cleveland Cattlet" and rapidly ia developing it into what will-be ina few years a model for equipment and convenience and of great productiveness. Corn and clover are, however, secondary considerations. The main aim is the production of Short Horn cattle and Quince Bush Farm, for such is its name, is one of the few farms in Clare county where thoroughbred cattle are bred. At present a fine herd of sixteen Short Horn thoroughbreds are found on the farm and the raising and selling of this standard grade cattle is already ari industry of great importance both to the' owner and to the surrounding country in improving' the grade Of stock. Mr. Sutherland does not devote all his time to farming. He is cashier of the Clare County Savings Banlc, but almost dally he drives but to his farm and wanders over its rolling acres, Its direct management is in charge of Mr. and Mrs. Alvah Servis, who them-' selves own a farm a little nearer to Clare, and to them Mr. Sutherland is indebted for not a little of the excellent condition of Quince Bush "Farm. One principal that in the end secures the enriching of any farm "is carried (jut in that all produce raised is consumed on the farm and nothing but live stock and their products are sold. As one looks over the Sutherland farm he can but notice the transforming power of man's industry. "Where but a few years ago it seemed, to the mere passer by, impossible to earn a livelihood in the midst of stumps, flourishing crops abound while even now the process of that transformation is at hand in what industry daily accomplishes.

A trip to C. H. Sutherland's 380-acre farm two and one-half miles directly east of Clare takes the visitor through a tract of excellent farming land with substantial homes and outbuildings, good roads and a rich soil. The Sutherland farm is a good example of the rapid evolution of a modern farm from wild land in a country where it was once supposed agriculture could never flourish. H"ine years ago the present Owner began the making of his farm. At that time there were no fences nor buildings where the present equipments exist. "No land had been stumped and only fifteen acres ploughed. Now 180 acres have been'practically rendered stumpless; i three miles of Wire fence find a place j on the farm. A conveniSnt home appears in the foreground. In the rear a number of suitable outbuildings come in view—a gambrel roof barn 40x60 with* 18 foot posts and with a; wing 1Gx56, a sheen barn 18x80, two | f^OMHi 01? THIS BARNS ON QUINCE BUSH FARM.
