Everybody who uses it values this quality next to Ivory's mildness and purity. in the bathtub it means not only convenience, but freedom from possible injury to have the soap always at hand and in sight instead of at the bottom of the tub where you may step on it.

I Cfivmio says in his pamphlet on Farm Efficiency: "The brain ipower required f- r the i continuous successful farming o( a I quarter seel ion of land up lo stand- j ards which may be called efficient, i measured by present agricultural, i knowledge, is as great as is required j for the successful management of a i bank, agricultural college, or any olaer type of business." Is Oaverno right in this estimate? If so, how does it compare with tbe estimate nine farmers out of ion have of their owa business'.' IJo they be- ilieve that it requires as strong an ex- ercise of brain power, as much prep- I aration of mind, storing of right j knowledge, and I raining for skill to run a llJO-acre farm up to grade as it does a bank, a factory, or a college? Xo, they ilo not, Their estimate of the mental equipment necessary for the farm is way below that of Caverno's. A large proportion of fanners look upon tbe farm just as a makeshift for a living. They have no real pride in what they do; no mental hunger and thirst, for better knowledge con- cerning what they do; no ambition to become known as successful demon- strators of what brains can do on a farm. It is that low estimate of their brains, of the possibilities of their farms, of the better profit financially that they might gain hy a better use of their minds that keeps them and their farms at a constant low ebb. Until the farmers of this country come to estimate the Ivain side of their business as in the same class with banking, teaching, preaching, ami big business, there will be no up- lift to farming. Just the minute, however, that a farmer does so class- ify himself and bis farm it begins to blossom and expand. Here are some good thoughts Mr. Caverno expresses: "Physical deficiency can he supple-, rnented by mechanical equipment and by living conditions which conserve vitality but there is no mechanical substitute for brains." "More attractive living and working conditions on the farm will attract a higher .type of people. A higher type of people working with more ef- ficient equipment will tiring higher elds. Higher yields will support a higher type of living which will at- tract a higher type of people and so on. Which should come attractive etiuiilnent or the j intelligent people? The problem is not so simple as that. Now'lt will be one. now the otliRr, now a. little of both. The first step is to catch the ideal. Ways find means will develop with time and Dairyman.
