Excerpt from Rural Life Described and Illustrated, in the Management of Horses, Dogs, Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, Poultry, Etc., Etc: Their Treatment in Health and Disease; With Authentic Information on All That Relates to Modern Farming, Gardening, Shooting, Angling, Etc., Etc Another end which has been kept in view in the production of rural life, is simplicity and clearness in the arrangement. This, it is believed, has been obtained, not only by laying the Work out in divisions, as a. Horticulturist does his ground, but in subdividing these into chapters, and these, again, into paragraphs, with, in many instances, separate or inde pendent headings. This, it is thought, has greatly tended to simplify its arrangement; to lighten any heaviness which might otherwise have appeared in some of its pages; to facilitate the desire of reference; and, altogether, to render rural life less wearisome in the perusal. As all pleasure consists in variety, the subjects have been disposed in such a manner as, it is hoped, will secure the reader, whilst seeking for information, from being baffled by confusion, or disgusted with dulness.
