WilY AN lEi )1 'AT ION?
Someoixdy is constantly finding
om(0iething wrong with our system of
edleatiol. The latest critic to get in
tle limelig ht is Thomas Edison, who
calie oit a few days ago in an Intier
view declaring that I college edtlca- I
tion anIlls a iman 1-o work. lie said
tle collego gradualtes do not like to
t dily work, but tvant to become o
high ollicials as sooln 'hm they land a s
.job. Il i ae t i t c oeges ia colsid- r
vrable rap. 1)r. lIen iry Van Dyke, not
ed preacher, author mid educator of
linceetoni I iversity. ctine out a few
lays later ill defense of the colleges.
lie said. speaking ot Mr. IEdisol:i
"He is right in saying that ont1 col- .
leges aenot v.hat they shoulid he' t
id D)r. \'an i )yll, "but he is d(ad
wrollg in thinking that Ie colId make
tihem so. h'le very things that he 1
blamkes inl themi are best and most I
loiilful. Thl' Oject of a cotll eg vdll
tation is 1o0to ) tionabil a man to muak1e
a livitig, blt to teath himl) how to tn
-lge aid ei inich his isental andI moral i
life, to) l morve of a man, to be a real
person antd not a cog ill a Iachine of
industry (r trade."
" iT I tou~le with I-dison's idlea 0f

While wv are inclined to agree with
.\ltr. Eddisoi that the usual college grad
iute is not a promising candidate for t
laborii s work, still the reply ofI' ,r. II
Van I)yke strikes such a high kyynote i
that it imight he read and pondered ov- c
tI. very decply by illort of our ediua- s
lolls. s
Althougihi Dr. Van )yke speaks sin- j
terely wil., he says that the object t
of a college education i not to en
ible a m an to make it living, it iust p
he admitted that tile itain arg ument n1
advanceed by Colleges in their appeals M
for supp)or1t, both to the state and 1i- p
vatv illdividuials, is on ite grtound t
that a college education aids the stul- n
dents inl oVoieliming the obstacles of c
life, referring to business obstacles,
and that a college education will pave 4
Ihe way to financial indtpendence. ni
Such arguments have been advanced AI
so muhi110, that it las come to he gen- g
cialy) :itee)te( that the Itin idea of ni

"Of course the chances are. that 8
)me other bug will come along, just
3 the Pink boll worm is following in
ie wake of the 'boll weevil, but
lore are at least signs that substan
al relief may come from the one
est which has done more to hamper s
1e South's cotton crop than any- 1
ling that has ever developed.
"hVe are gratified to know that the e
triners of Washington county will
ceive several thousand dollars moro
>r their cotton erop this year than Y
icy did last year, and we hope that
10 same conditions prevail in pro
ortion all over the state It would
teani a greater degree of prosperity C
Ian we had counted upon.'
What the News has to sa inl re
itrd to other pests that have afflict
I agriculture passing is -perhaps true, I
tit there is no sign that the boll wee- L
11 is going to pass and we have an
Iea that he is with 1ts forever, cor- I
dinly for aS long a time as cotton 1
planted in the 'South.
Thi weevil entered Texas many
ears ago aid is still there, although 1
le'very hot summers 0Ind very cold .
inters in that state cuts down his
ivages to a great extent and then, too,
exas rainfall is less than ours and
ke weevil thrives most in a section C
itli n high percentage of' rainfall.
ver since the weevil entered L)ouisi
na and I.\lississipipi he has been bad
id there is no lessoning of his rav- i
,es unless the farners combat him
itlh every known selentille remedy.
>tton cal be ia ised in the delta of
ti Mississij)pp as it was before the
c(Viil wlen tiere is high fertiliza
on, rapid workIng, poisoning, etc.
'1111 tNhere is a very -wet slumller' we
I hot bld ieve that it is Iossible any- I
hiere to inake anything like a normal I
eld.
Tei Ch roni cle believos that it is pos- I
ih!e witi a very (Iry sitmmer to make
ttoi witihiit poisoning,. hutt it is not
Ife to try it. There have heen soine
>iod yields 1 made in this section with
it poisoning this yeai' but these shots
ere favorcd with less rain than oth
*s anti tle t'armers who made these
iad yielO. without poison ing would
've ima1idei' much .moVre with poisoning.
Now as for the holl weevil passing,
tci'e is no hope for it. We regret t
tat a paper like the '.lacon News
ould encourage such an idea. 'We do
'it know the exact reason why Wash
gton county made nearly 1,000 balos
ore than last year but it was prob
Aly die to more intelligent farming
hich includes poisoning, high foe- I
lization, raild cultiyation ete., plu'

We would advise our fartners not. to
thrown off their guard by any such a
ought as the passing of the 1 boll'
oevil, bul to prepare to light 'lim to
e limit and niake cotton in spite
him. d

rolling the weevil. fi
Th fundamental basis for growing r
otton under boll weevil conditions, f(
