A WRONG THAT NEEDS RIGHTIlN
The health of Americans of the f
ture would be vastly Improved if the
mothers-te army of imiture gir

twelve and eighteen-were to devoi
less time and energy to Latin, Frencl
geometry, history and "themes" f<

a great deal more to home duties, wor
on the lawn and in the garden and t
other exercise and recreation out c
doors for the building up of health,
and strong physiques, upon which fa(
tor chiefly their mission as mother
and homemakers Is to depend. We'!
admit that this view will be counsid
ered a bit on the old fogy order b,
some. but It is nevertheless correct ank
one that will be given Increased at
tention in the years that are jus
shead. There are several things to b
righted in the school system at pres
wnt in vogue over the country. One ol
the chief of these is the turning of the
sually pa!e faced, anaemic Invalids
t graduation time Into girls physical
y robust and able to take up the seri
>us and responsible duties of life. Thd
redit for the situation which exist r is
argely due to a system.^hicjh. makes
he curricula of public schools conform
o college requirements when probably
ess than .D0pe' coat of the pupils en
oied will lver go to college; partly
ne to the blindness of teachers wed to
be system and stupidly ignorant of
he fact that children at thirteen do
ot have the endurance of grown folks
t thirty, and even more it Is due to
lrtsighted parents who through fool
h pride allow and sometimes eneour
;e their daughters to overwork that
My may stand at the head of their
asses. Those collectively and indl
dually responsible should get their
!ads together and evolve a more ra
nal system that will make it pos

The point is now and then rmis
whether It pays to sow clover wi
small graini, particularly oats, if c
plans to plow stubble and clover un~

this line Is that It does pay, the bene
derivable from the clover turned und
being quite largely proportionate

ourse Is followed the benefit of t
clover to the land rarely fails to p

lug under the second growth int
fall, the benefits derived from the lI

due to the fact that the older a
larger the root systems of the clo~
are the more extensive is the devel<
ment of the nodules, whieh are the a
positories of the nitrogen which

deal more for two.
THE SEED BED.
Next to securing good seed that u
grow there is no other respect
which the tiller of the soil should
ercise greater care than in the pr
aratlon of the seed bed. More far
ers fail down here and lessen the<
pacity of their land to produce lar
crops to a larger efltent than in a
other single way. Valuable Ia
should receive something better ti
this thirty cent care, which is lk<
-practiced as generally as It Is becai
the sinners along this line don't rt
Ize that for small grain to grow pr

must he lopse enough to make possi
a ready circulation of air and moist'
from the surface down and from1
subsoil to the surface.
