Education for Farmers.
To the average mind the word education
is limited in its definition to what
one learns at school, but that is altogether
too narrow. Education means
growth, culture, development, as well
as tho acquisition of knowledge, and
'knowledge again is not monopolized by
tho schools; indeed, one who knows only
what ho learns at; school is much more
justly entitled to the epithet of ignoriun
us than hewho, having no opportunity
to attend school, has been a diligent
student of nature and of f men. There
were wise men before letters were invented,
or schools established. Schools,
good schools, are excellent auxiliaries
to education, bat they are nothing
more. It is admitted bjr all that no
amount of bok Naming, vill suffice to
fit a young man for the duties of a physician,
a lawyer, or a clergyman, and
the idea that it would fit him for the
profession of agriculture is absurd. Yet
each profession has its literature, which
can be reached only through the portal
of the school or the aid of private instructors,
and the literature of each profession
is of prime importance to those
who would pursue successfully a profession.
The literature of a profession, farming,
for example, conserves the wisdom
of the past and records the experiments
of the present. But the wisdom of the
past preserved in books is like wheat
before it is winnowed, mixed with the
chaff of ignorance and the cheat of prejudice.
So, also, is much of the scientific
knowledge of the present. They
are both misleading and injurious to
him who accepts them without question.
But they are great helps to him whose -mind
has been trained to criticise all
things, and who accepts only that which
stands .this .crucial test.
Colleges confer degrees, yet these are
often misleading; the young man with
A. M. or M. IX after his name is not
necessarily a' master of arts or of medicine.
He is only prepared to enter upon
a career of practical experiment,
which, if he possesses the talent, the industry,
and the perseverance necessary
to the completion of his education, may
ultimately make him worthy of the title
conferred, upon him prematurely by the
No amount of theoretical training will
fit a man for the successful pursuit of
agriculture ; yet, without theoretical
training, a man rarely rises to the dignity
of an intelligent farmer. .
Farming is a profession in the same
sense that the' praotioe of law or of medicine
i3 a profession ; hence the youth
who is destiijed to become a farmer
should be educated with reference to
that profession. The public schools of
this country furnish the facilities for all
the literary training absolutely needed,
and, in the larger cities, the scientific
branches are taught as well as they are
in our colleges, and those are important.
While it wero a waste of time to study
the dead l&neuages, the prospective
farmer should become familiar with the
elements of natural history, botany,
chemistry, geology, and natural philosophy.
These branches of science have
a direct relationship to his future business,
and the young farmer who enters
the profession versed in them will find
that he is not only prepared for a larfter
measure of success, but that his mind is
fitted for communion withnature,whoso
secrets, hid from others are constantly
revealed to him, affording an inexhaustible
source of pleasure as well as profit.
To him every expanding leaf or opening
flower has a boautiful significance, and
every phenomenon involved in the
growth of plants has for him a meaning
unknown to tho ignorant plodder. AU
nature to him is one grand illustrated
encyclopedia filled with lessons of wisdom,
from tho pen and pencil of the
originalauthor and artist of the universe.
To the educated farmer the rocks
present their own history, written in
unmistakable characters by the finger of
God. The soil whispers to him of its
fertility or complains of its poverty in
language perfectly iutelligible, and the
treasure of Floja, Patnona and Ceres
are shown, in richabuudance,at the feet
of him who wields the magic wand of
intelligent labor. National Farmer.
ireonre .ncuuuti, au juivu uuiuo,
was accused 01 criminally obtaining
money by contracting to deliver grain
which he did not possess. Ho protested
that he knew nothing whatever about
the matter, but the evidence against him
convinced a jury, and, a year ago, ho
was sentenced to three years in tho
penitentiary. The man who personated
Bennett has now been detected, and the
convict's innocence is made clear. Tho
Governor has pardoned him, and 'will
ask tho next Legislature to vote him
$5,,000, besides a parchment on which
tho facts in "the case are officially inscribed.
The Haverhill (Mass.) Gazette relates
that in removing a large apple
tree, which had stood tor many years
on properly kuown as tho James Gale
estate, it was found that it inclosed a
fence post, and that it occupied tho exact
center of the trunk. When tho tree
was cut about it fell over, and the post,
jose in the center, drew out and broke a
"foot or more below the cut. Tho post
is of chestnut, as near as can bo made
out, and must have been inclosed in tho
tree perhaps one hundred years.
