It may sometimes occur that a person may wish to relinquish a home and seek another. Certainly he should have a right to do this when it is voluntary. In the composite or harmonic home, the "home feeling" is quite as possible and quite as essential as it ever was in the isolated or single households of the past.
THE FARMER'S MANSION and buildings would be
grouped together at the center of the farm, containing from 640 to 2,560 acres; the size depending upon the kind of products to be raised. The number of persons required on a given farm would also depend upon the kind of products, some of these requiring very much more labor than others.
In the ordinary farm mansion the one hundred and forty-four members would find among themselves enough variety of character and talent to prevent any of that sense of isolation and absence of chances for culture and amusements, which belonged to the farmer's life in past times.
