PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. This order was founded on December 4, 1866, its special objects being "to develop a better and higher manhood and womanhood among ourselves; to enhance the comforts and attractions of our homes, and strengthen our attachments to our pursuits; to foster mutual understanding and co-operation; to maintain inviolate our laws, and to emulate each other in labor; to reduce our expenses, both individual and corporate; to buy less and produce more, in order to make our farms self-sustaining; to diversify our crops, and crop no more than we can cultivate; to discountenance the credit system, the mortgage system, the fashion system, and every other system tending to prodigality and bankruptcy."
