We cory an Rttlole on this nubject from
tho Brattleboro Phtinix. There ia eense In
the artlcle, but It does not go to tho bottom
of the mattcr by many a fathom. It Is true
that many Vermont farmers bave emigrated,
and continne to emtgrale', but lt la not bo
cause they dislike Vermont, or hare a poor
oplnion of Vermont soll. The great ma
jotlly of our exilea are men who hare run
in debt for farms and hare found lt impos
nlble to pay for theni. They struggle along
untll they see that If they struggle longer
they wlll hare nothlng left. Then they eell
out, rcalizing what they can, and leave Ver
mont for the cheap landa of Kansas, Iowa,
or IJakota. They don't go because they
want to, but because they must. When
young farmers wlth little or no money are
wllllng to work out until they bave the
money to buy a farrn and pay for lt, Ver
mont agrlculture will be on a new basls,
and emlgration wlll cease. The article Is
as follows : " Tho itnnroved condition of
business lnterests seems at last to hare some
effect on real-cstate farm property. Thero
have been more sales of such property this
spring than usual, and in some cases a little
adranco above what the same property
would have brought a few years ago has
been rcalized. Vi'e hare in mind two farms
forwhlch lonafitle offers have lately been
made, in ono case at an adrance of twenty
per cent above the price pald for it a year
ago, and in the other case at an advauce of
twenty-flvo per cent abovo the price pald
for the same place three years ago. Several
other places within our knowledge, that
have been in the market for many years
without purchasers, have lately been sold,
llut lt is still diflicult to And purcbasers of
farms. A good farm tnay be advertised for
sale for years without attracting a customer
willing and able to pay a reasonablo price
for lt, especially if lt is a hill farm or in a
small or back dlstrict. There is no good
reason why Vermont farms should not find
a more ready sale. I.very intelhgent per-
son concedes that, as a whole, the best f arm-
ing lands of New England are found inthls
stato. Only Uinlted areaa in other New
Kngland states are cqnally prodnctive. That
the average condition of farmers, as far as
this world's goods are concerned, is better in
Vermont than In some of the most fertile
states of the west, can be shown from trust-
worthy statlsties. Wo should cducato our
young men to appreciate the merlts of
their own state. This is whcro we bave
falled. They have been taught rather to
believe that there was something much
better elsewhere. Whiie western papers are
falled wlth praises, cacli of 1U own locality,
not a few of which aro published bere, we
seldom see in a Vermont paper anything de
signed to encourage immigratlon to the
state, or even to discourage our young f eo
ple from leaving it. Ou the contrary, the
tendency of most of the articles we read is
to tncourage emigration to other states
There are probably at least 200,000 natives
of Veimontnow livlug outside of the state.
If we had half of these back within the
state, farms would be in demand and sell
readily at fair prices, and tbe general pros.
perity of the state would be very materially
euhauced. Insteadof reiteratlng the advice
of llorace Oreeley, ' Go west young man,' we
should publlsh oftener his dehberate opiix-
ion, expressed afteran exteusive acquaint-
ance with the different stat&i, that nowhere
In the country will a given auiount of money
bring more substantial comforts to those
seeking homes than when Invested in a Ver
Indivldual man and indlvidual capltal
are wholly Inadequate to the complete utll
izatlon and employment of tbese great fac
tors of our civlllzatlou. Corporatlons which
combine men and their capltal are an abso
lute uecessity. They are creatures of the
state, and the laws of their being and ac
tions are prescribed by the state. They can
bave no uatioual rights, and can exerclse
no powers but such as are conferred upon
tbem by their creator. Those who have
the publio spirlt, tho ablllty and courage to
unlte together, Invest their capltal, and do
vote their talents to the constructlon aud
operation of rallroajs, telegraph llnes, man
ufacturlng and commercial enlerprises,
should be allowed a very generous return for
their investment. We can bave no sympa
thy with thoBe wbo would crlpple aud em
barrass or obstruct corporatlons in the legiti
mate exerclse of their fuucllons. We would
be as earnest In the support of tbelr rights
as we would be determined in compelling
tbem to pcrform their duties. Wnenever
corporatlons bring their comblned power
and iufluence, and employ their aggregated
wealth to corrupt the source of their exist
ence, wheu they employ their galns to con
trol prlmary meetings, elect members of tbe
leglslature, judgos, governors, oongressmen
and presldent, appolnt the committees, pur
cbase leglslation; when they become a sjn
dlcate to rob tbe farmer, the mechanlo, the
manufacturer, the mercbaut, the day-laborer,
of their legltlmate profits ; when they at
tempt to deflne the rights and prescrlbo the
duties of every man, woman and child;
when they hlre the pulpit and tho prcss
wlth passes and other favors to justify and
defend their unnumbercd villalnitK j wheu
they do all these tuiiiga aud more, lt is tltuo
to souud the uote of alariu.
Helfers from tho llest Mllkcrs.
We thiuk all the best dairymen are agreed
iu regard to the profit of ralslng their own
cows to supply addltlons to their herds.
Vcry few have ever selected a valuable herd
wholly by purcliaie. lt has beeu sald that
if total depravlty can everbeallegedaguiiist
a farmer, It wlll bo fouud iu his reprcseuta
tlons ou the sale of cows. We have oltcn
enumerated the luiportant poiuts in favor
of home-ralsed cows, and ono of the most
iiujortaut is tiie opportuuity of selecting
the helfor calvcs from tho best mllkors,
both for quanllty and quallty. If the dalry.
man glvcs no heed lo this polnt, he wlll per
petuato hli worthless cows wlth his good
ones, and thus never Improve his dalry herd.
A large majority of dairymen have cows in
their herds that do not pay their keeping j
and, as they do not apply a test to tho indl
vidual cows, they contlnuo not only to keep
tbem, but to breod from them. This is tho
sulcldal polloy. Although we strongly roc
o mmend dairymen to ralfo their own cows,
we are far from advlslng them to perpetuate
t helr rcor cows. It would bo even better
to glve them away to a favorlte brother-in-law.
Tho hclfcr calves from only the best
cows should be ralsed, and the weedlng out
should go on stlll further. Wbeu these
helfers come Into milk, those that do not
eomoupto the projrer standard should be
" At the end of the war tho nattonal debt
per caplta was ?78 25, and the annual intcr
est burden il.20. Now the annual debt per
caplta is :!7.71, aud the annual burden
S1.G0. In the last sixteen years the people
have paid 81,705,d350001nterest on the pub
lio debt, and ?7r8,457,305 on the prlnclpal,
or on account of the debt altogether 82,02:!,
092,39o. Is this not about enough for thla
gencratton to be f orced to pay for the preaer
vatlon of the finest government on earth,
yet which we propose to leave aa a legacy to
coulng gcneratlons? Wlth increased wealth
and populatton the natlonal debt will be
easler to pay." Wo cut the above from an
exchauge. It wlll be seen that rapldly as
the debt is being pald, and greatly as the
rate of interest has been lowered, wo bave
pald vastly more in interest than on the
prlnclpal. Yet the wrlter of the quoted
parigraph thinks it the part of wlsdom to
stop reduclrg the prlnclpal and contlnue to
pay interest, so that our postcrlty may
learn, perhaps, that " a national debt is a
natlonal bleaslng." About all of these pay-
mecta have been made from tho proceeds of
the taxes on llquor and tobacco.
How to Treat Itats.
A writer in tho Scicnlific American says
" We clean our pretnises of tho detcstable
vermln, rats, by maklng whitewash yollow
with copperas and coverlng tho stones and
rafters with it. In every crevico iu which
a rat may go we put the crystals of the cop
peras, and scalter in tbe corner of the Iloor,
Tho result waa a perfect stampede of rats
and mlce. Since that time not a foolfall of
either rats or mlce ha3 been heard around
the house. Kvery spring a coat of yellow
wash ia given the cellar aa a purlGer, as a
rat extermlnator, and no typhold, dysentery
or fever attacks the family. Many persons
dellberately attract all the rats in the neigh
borhood by leaving the f rulta and vegetables
uncovered in the cellar, and sometlmes even
the soap Is left open for their regalement
Cover up everything eatable In the cellar
and pantry and you will soon starvo them
out. Theso precautiona, joined to the ser
vice of a good cat, will prove as good a rat
extermlnator as tho chemist can provide.
We never allow rats to be poisoned in our
dwelling. They are so aptto die between
the walla and produce much annoyance."

In some parts of the wet goata are
placed in sheep-pens to drive away wolves,
a service for which their superior buttirjg
powers peculiarly fit them. Tho experiment
has been trled iu Ilunterdon and Somerset
countles, New Jersey, withcompletesuccess,
as a protectlon for sheep agalnst dogs.
Two goats, lt Ia said, can drlve away a
dozen dogs, and two are about all tbat lt is
necessary to keep wlth a moderato sized flock.
As soon as a dog enters a field at night tho
goats ijo at blm, and send hlm rolling over
and over in short order. A few doses of
thla heroio treatment prove qulte enough
for his dogship, and he is glad to limp howl
ing away aa best he can. Formerly, the
farmers say, when a dog entered a sheep
field at night, the timld creatures would run
wildly about and cry piteously. Slnce the
goats bave beeu used to guard them, they
form in lino behind their sturdy defenders,
and seem to enjoy the fun.
I1 HOrFSSOlt J. P. WlCKEKSIIAM liavillg
been coininisidoned by the National Kdu
cational Association to inquire into the elli
clency of education na a preventlve of
crime, reports that in tbe prisons of renu
sylrania, the colleges and hlgh schoola are
most signlficantly and the fairly educated
classes only moderately represented, wbile
one-sixth of the crlme of tbe state ia coni
mltted by the wholly illiterate, who constb
tute only one-thirtleth part of tbe jopula-
tion. I Ia further concludes that about
one-thlrd of the crime is committed by per
sons practically illiterate, and that the pro
portlon of crimluala auiong the Illiterate is
about ten tlmea aa great as among those
who bave beeu instructed in theelements of
a common-school education or beyond.

Much has been wrltten of late years con
cernlng " high-pressure education," and es
pecially with reference to girls in our public
schooR Iloth sidea of the qnestion have
beeu ably presented. On the one hand it
has been urged that too much is exacted of
the pupils, who often become victims to the
desire for knowledga as completely as Adani
and Kve did in the Iliblical earden. Thev
are crammed with the fruit of the tree of
knowledge until hopeless ruin ia the result.
If they escape with nothlng worse than
cnronic rneutal dyspepsla, thev are lucky,
On the other hand, it is maintained that the
actual demanda on mind and body ln our
euucationai sjstetn are moderate and reason
ablo, and that the niischlef w hich ia ascribed
to the school la rather to be attributed to
faults in home traiulng, and to additional
burdena Imposed upon the vounir student in
outside pursuits music, drawing, needle-
worK and tne liko or ot soclal amuse.
ments, which though they pass for recrea
tion, aro really hard and wearing labor.
Of course both sides, as in the malority
of such disputes, are partly right. Themere
demands ol the average school curriculum
upon tho average mental power of boy or
girl are not excesslve. If school work is
viewed as the regular employment of tbe
pupil for the time, which ia to be attended
to on strictly " business principles," it is
not likely to be too severo a straln upon
boya and glrls of ordinary capacity in fair
health. lt ia not too mucb, but it must be
borne in mtnd it is enougri ; anu the occu-
tions of the pupit for the remainder of hia
time must be regulated accordingly. The
man who has the work of a trade or profes
siou to do cannot, aa a rule, attempt much
other work; and the same is true of the
school-boy or school-girl. Tbe surplus time
must be given either to play, or to such em
ployment as is practically equivalent to play,
or recreatiou. To burden the pupil with
outside studles, or with domestlc duties that
weary and worry lnstead oi giving a relresh
ing chauge of activity to body and mind, Is
as bad aa maklng tbe tlred arllsan or Dusl
ness man do a Becond day's werk when his
regular " Btint " is finished ; or, rather, lt is
worse, for tho young laborer is less able to
endure the doubie strain upon ma powers.
On tbe other side it should be kept iu
mind that the real strain of school upon the
pupil is not fairly measured by the amount
oi work, viewed stmpiy as wortc. xnts, in
deed, ia often and ln the case of girls we
may say Is generally the least important
element in tbe strain. The ordinary school
course iuvolvea not only mental eifort, but
nervous tension, anxiety as well as work ;
and this worry, which is not put down in
,the "course of study," and which ia not
meastirable or recognizable by the usual
school tests, is far more mischlevous than
the work. It ls an unkuown but constant
quanllty In the problein which materially

tions, the closslflcatton accordlng to rank
all tend to Keep the .cnoiars in a state ot
chronio excltemcnt aud anxiety, which is a
severo stralu upon the nervoua systeiu.
Girls suffer from this far more seriously
than boya. They often work much harder
than their brotners, and mcy worry innn'
itely more. They are generally nioro am
bitious and more conscientious, more sensl
