The freezing weather, now prevailing,
agravates the already terrible condition
of the roads and emphasizes the impor
tance of a system of road construction
and road working that looks to theIwork
of proper drainago as overcoming wash

FARMINO DEFEN DE .
In an article entitled "For the Boys"
vhich appeared in the issue of Ihis p:
per for the 28th, Nov, some severo crii
cisn were mado upon farm life. I agree
with many statements made by the wri
tor, especially the one on'taining the
central throught, namely that of persua
ding a boy to tbecomo a farmr, just to
keep him at home." .For n(o other ob
ject than to keep him at home, no Ioy,
ilould be induced to farm. Still the id
vantages of farm lifo should be I poimed
'ut to him in a fair and impartial way
Ro should not be prejudiced mgainst
farming by extolling the good Of other
cupaltions and debhasinig thaut of agriliul

The next criticisim I wish to call at
ntion .to is that made by thme influen(eo
farming on thme intellect. Th'e writer
y's that '-nothling (leve-lops thle hmumn

a are to take your evidence, does not
te farm furnish "'diflimcullies"' enough to

Iany things contrary to theory." As a
mattor of fact, every farmer to suoceed,
208t possess certain business qualities,
specially those of judgment and exeu
ive ability. Judgment is required, be
ause the farmer in his relation to his em
'boyes is frequently called upon to de

which Is an average of abovt one dollar
por day, continued confinelaent, regular
routino work (lay after day (no montal
development here), and the making ol
himself into a mere machine. Wherein are
there advantages, if advantages they be
superior to those offered by the farm?
Lastly, "let the" boy go where he
must hustle, and Ill1 guarantee he will
never ask for alms or be looked tip for
vagranoy." When a boy ongages in the
"roughest work man has to encounter,"
he's pretty upt to be a hustler, and thero
fore, we have the writer's word for it, a
farm boy "will never ask for alms or be
looked up for vagrancy." But even with.
out this timely assurance, I must admit
I've never boon uneasy about farm boys.
It is a new idea abroad in tie land, that,
which brands the firm boy as the em
bryo tramip. No land has over had cause
to fear injury from its farming classes.
Williams Jennings Bryan said, "Burn
down your cities and leave your farms,
and your cities will spring up again as if
by magic," but destroy our farms and
the grass will grow in the streets of
every city in this country." The farmers
have always been regarded as the founds
ation stone of society, and unhappy will
be the daiy whei an effort is made to
deprive the country of those who food
and clothe it. S. M. Robertson.
