[ AMBITION TALKSl
..J^kjiM SHOULD CHILDREN WORK?
The constant agitation against child-labor is a good and proper thing,
fo far as it applies to sweat-shop work and the practice of taking children
from school to put them to making money; but of late years many school
teachers and parents have been passing to the other extreme, in relieving
the child altogether of work.
This In much more true in the case of city children than country children.
The country boy goes home from school at 4 o'clock, to milk cowb, feed the
cattle and chop the wood; but the city boy Is turned loose from 4 to 6 to
fall directly Into the hands of that sulphurous old party who "always finds
work for idle hnnds to do."
One cannot commend too strongly the action of many leading public
school boards in introducing manual training and domestic, science depart
ments In their school, In which children are taught to do useful work with
The first principle that should be taught to every child Is that usefulness
is the true test of greatness, and that actual service will mako one of far more
value than will mere book learning.

YOU COULDN'T expect a half fed child to grow
up big and strong, could you? Nor can a big
profit-making crop come from your soil, unless
the crop is properly fed.
Few soils known have enough plant foods to remain
fertile when cultivated. Exacting crops draw heavily
ipon its fertility.
Ammonia, Phosphoric Acid and Potash are drawn
from the soil?some crops requiring a great deal of one
and less of another. Fertilizers must be mixed as
accurately as a doctor's prescription to supply the
elements that are lacking, that the crop takes out.
The fertilizers made by us are conscientiously made.
We could cheapen them, and analysis would not show
the difference. But we prefer to give you the utmost
in plant foods for the price you pay. For we consider
reputation our richest asset.
The bountiful yields of cotton?the mammoth yields
of corn?produced by them, are winning for them
