In the first place. then, let is sne
'what anl opportunity the teacher has
for viewing suich defects. During thle
day fromtt nine until three, for a period
of 7 or 9 months, the child is placed
Itn111de'r tie teacler's CIre. During this
1time the teacher has a good chance,
while in classes, to detect the child's
hearing, speech, and eye-sight. The
teacher comes in much closer relation
for such a purpose than do many par
ents. When the boy or girl goes home
in the afternoon he finds his mother
doing her household work, shopping, or
visiting; his father, on his fari, in
his store, or at: his profession. The
child is left to do his studying, i
noticed, perhaps, by his parents. Very
seldom. therefore, is there a real op
portutnity, in minanly cases, for parents
to discover. tle defects that are Very

As there is being so much said and
written about the present condition, I
hope yol will give ine space to express
For tle last tweinty-flve years tile
people and thle agricultural papers of
tle sotth have )e4en advocating rota
tion and diversification of vrops. We
I'ave had "'A llaners" and "Farmer's

Now what I want to get at is this:
Ini oir last called session of oilr gen -
eral assembly our i law iakier's passed
a law--just, the very thing thia our
farmers have been trying to get thsi
many years, and Just as soon as we get
what we have beeln working for all
this time, hel' Comiies a Certain fac
tion or element that wants this law
I haven'1 a doitt but that some of
our newly elected legislators have al
ready had reiluests from iany to work
in tile next session to repeal 11his law.
Now as for imyself, I am inl favor of
the new law. and will be against anly
111:111 or body of Imen who oppose It.
Our government. for the last five
years has had its investigations trying
to find tie (ause of high living..
Now to my mind there would have
been no need of this If the South had
been raising her food supplies.
Take for Instance the large land
owner; you find him to a large extent
against this new law. Why Is this? Is
it becauso lie really thinks it against
the average farmer, or is It because
there Is not so much labor in growing
grain as In growing cotton? To some
extent the latter Is true. He wants his
tenants to plant the crop that will re
quire as nearly as possible all his time
Ills excuse Is that lie can't afford
to riu the hand on the one-third acre
age system. Tf every farmer would
have his tenants sow three acres of
wheat on good land well prepared.
give him hlis garden, and see that he
planted plenty of corn, the people of
this co11ntr3 would live after all.
