the pupils will be needed as The establishment of the public school system was upon the theory that if educated they would be better fitted for any honorable place in the The industries rather than the pro fessions should be kept in view in the school They should have at least a larger share of attention than they have heretofore But now what can they do for agriculture or rather what can be done for ture through the public schools In the first place they can create an interest in the subject of They can do much toward developing a respect for agriculture as an Too often the tendency of the boys advancement in education is to wards something so than It is presented before the pupil too often as an incentive that if he is studious and successful in his studies he may rise to something more honorable than a tiller of the That may be he can get to be a a a a or maybe president of tho United If the teacher hears boy announce his de termination to be a she too often looks upon it as an indication of failure upon her part to awaken proper aspiration in tho mind of the pupil and she is apt to feel that if such is the case there is little use of his Now this should be impressed upon the mind of every pupil that farming is one of the most if not tho most honorable of all occupations and that education is as absolutely neces sary for a honorable farmer as for any one It should be pointed out that tho reason of so many failures with farmers is because of lack of proper preparation in tho way of education for tho it should bo impressed upon tho minds of the that every science

cooperation on the part of the patrons and especially of tho farm ele ment or nothing can be done for agri either by or through the public The term public schools might be made to include the whole school sys tem from the university down and es the agricultural In this we propose to give our attention to what the country schools can do for By ag we mean farming in the sense it should be understood in our own section of tne What then can our country schools do for farming Tho question will most likely confront us at the outset can they do anything Are the schools not already overburdened with studies and work to be done Have tho schools so fulfilled the requirements already enjoyed that they are idly waiting until some one can think of something more for them to do Is it true that our scholars finish their three Rs writin and rith together with their physiology and other studies now imposed so long before their school years are closed that they are compelled to quit the public schools simply for the lack of something to do Such is certainly not the On the contrary a large per cent of our schol ars arrive at the ages when for various reasons they must or do quit school without being able to read or under stand only every easy book or tho sim ple articles in or to write a simple business or friendship letter without gross errors in punct and There are boys nearly big enough to go with the girls that cannot compute the interest on a promissory and some of them dont know the multiplication Girls arrive at the age of young woman hood whose practical

of more importance to the boys and girls of an agricultural com munity than those things in any sci ence which pertains to the occupation that they will most likely follow and all things it is mosl
