boys and girls to seek a livelihood
amid conditions for which their ed
ucation had given them no poise.
"How can you have anything
ideal in farming?" asked a friend
whose life was one of excessive toil
with little rest and recreation. I an
swered that the system of education
now evolving and seeking expres
sion in our agricultural colleges,
experiment stations and papers, the
ideal part of farming, will assert it
sslf, and in time dominate.
Too long has the idea prevailed
that education is not necessary for
a farmer. "Book larnin'" was ridi
culed. Now we begin to see that
the most liberal education is a ne
cessity, and the most successful
farmer is he who has the widest
range of thought on all matters per
taining to his vocation —that the
farmers' wife best satisfied with her
lot is she whose education enables
her to recognize the ideal possibili
ties in her orbit and make the most
practical application of them. To
such Nature's power and grandeur
are revealed every day in the chang
ing seasons; the elements respond
to their creative energy —food and
shelter are theirs without anxiety.
We all admit that overwork is a
distasteful feature of farming.
Many other vocations possess the
same condition. It renders any
calling distasteful to feel one's ener
gies are being exhausted beyond
Is this necessary?
It seems to have been so in the
work of life. Must we continue it,
or can we reverse the current and
establish conditions more suited to
Right education will reverse it by
establishing habits of order and
neatness and scientific system which
will afford needed rest and recrea
It will lessen our desire to sell or
rent and go to town to enjoy life or
engage in some other occupation.
An understanding of the ideal will
bind us more closely to the farm
house. There the elements are
ours to utilize for beauty as well as
use —each aiding the other to es
tablish those conditions which make
home the most powerful magnet of
our social life, and from which can
radiate those influences which light
en the toil and save the energy.
Is it not a matter of duty for all
who represent the farming element
to labor earnestly for the continu
ance and generous maintenance of
those institutions devoted to practi
cal instruction in our business? We
desire better conditions. Knowl-

That's What We Teach!
By this method the human system is
All Poisonous Elements
which make any of the disease sj'tup
toms possible. Secreted poison
is the basis of all disease!
Don't give up, but accept the relief
offered by our medicated vapor baths
which possess a hundred-fold more
curative power than all the hot springs
in America, and are far more luxur
ious than a Turkish bath.
An Unparalleled k'cmc
As a remedial agent and luxury
combined, Dr. Conant's Compound Va
por Baths have no parallel in ancient
or modern times. In them you find
concentrated all the qualities con
tained in the best methods of bathing
known to science, supplemented by na
ture's remedies which permeate the en
tire system by absorption, absolutely
destroying the germs of disease, which
otherwise might result in consequen
ces the most disastrous to human
health and life. By so doing the Com
pound Vapor assists nature to throw
off any disease that ilesh is heir to—if
taken in season. Fevers, sciatic and
inflammatory rhematism, paralysis,
dropsy, Diabetes, Bright's disease and
all derangements of the kidneys and
urinary organs, spinal difficulties, sick
headache' neuralgia, asthma, phthisic,
bronchitis varicose veins, salt rheum,
eczema, itch, tetter, erysipelas, ivy
poison, malarial, mercurial and spec
ific blood poison in all its forms suc
cumb to this treatment. It is an un
paralleled remedial agent.
We especially invite people who have
tried and failed to obtain relief from
every other known treatment.
A few of these baths will convince
you of their efficiency. Bath rooms in
