Of Quaker Oats. A big dish of
Quaker Oats porridge with sugar and

EDUCATION FOR THE BOYS.
Why Sons of Small Farmers Develop
The education acquired on iho small
farm broadens citizenship because it
is a many sided education ami gives
correct Impressions of many phases of
life. All over the world the small. In
dependent farmers air hi tain h sup
porters i'f conservative government.
They arc intense lovers of Home and
opposed to radical changes.
Ultimately the small farmer learns
to keep a reserve nf eash against emer
gencies, und these aggregated accumu
lations become very important factors
In the capital of the nation, for they
are more reliable than deposits from
commercial sources. The \asi sums of
money necessary to carry on the busi
ness of a nation are not derived from
the deposits of capitalists, hut from
I lie aggregation of millions of thrifty
small depositors This Is especially
Into In Kugln ml, France, Germany and
the United states.
it h.'s been observed for years that
the sons of small farmers dc\ "lop man
aging ability, From their earliest
years they arc compelled to do things
and to act independently, It is from
this scupc that the greatest number
of managers of the various enterprises
of our country l.a\e been drawn.
The great value of educating and
training youth for agriculture is so
universally conceded that it tloes not
require discussion. The necessity of
presenting nml Impressing better types
of husbandry upon hdult farmers
through demonstrations under tin-ir
? are is rapidly being accepted by the
American people as :r most important
means of education for the rural
masses and necessary t<> any general
ami rapid advancement.
if all is considered education that
"leads out." develops or trains the
Individual, then the amount of educa
tion act pi I red in even the i?est schools
is only a fraction of what the average
man must know to Slice.1 in life. It
is, then, of the highest importance to
the slate that this greater mass of
knowledge should be correct, broad,
conservative mid elevating. Liberal
provision has been made for schools
by tlm state, by churches nnd by Indi
vidual gifis, but the molding of this
greater knowledge to the best Intet?
ests of society has been mainly left
to the caprice of Iim1I\ idttnl effort. The
state can With propriety specially fos
ter such conditions of society, such
lines of industry or sni p occupations
as evidently teml to mental ami phys
ical vigor, lo breadth of understand
ing, to the best citizenship and to the
stability of the slate. For these ends
no mote potent Influence has been
found than an intelligent, prosperous
and contented body of thrifty small

Von cannot afford to let yi.ur fruit
