iLIFE ON THE FARM.
Wc have received the article .pre
sented herewith from Superintendent
A. a Nelson- of the State Public
School System with the suggestion
that it be published in these columns.
The article is a portion of an address
by President Roosevelt, delivered at
Jordanvillc, New York, a few weeks
You know that .'old saying that
God made the country and man made
the town; well, it is said that the last
is not yet an improvement of the
first. I am glad to sec the cities
grow, but not at the expense of the
country. Their tendency to grow is
not bcoausc of the opportunity they
present to make great fortunes, but
because of their tendency to be more
interesting and attractive in them
selves. I hope, in the course of a few de
cades, to sec the farmers bend their
energies towards making life in the
country more interesting and more
attractive, and towards inducing our
people to understand how really at
tractive our country life is at pres
ent. I sometimes get impatient with
the individual who goes to the city
because he can find no attraction in
the country, but I am doubtful if the
fault lies with him so much as with
the fact that there is too much lone
liness and isolation and a failure to
take advantage of much that could
be used with the expenditure of little
energy.
I have done what I could to devel
op rural mail free delivery. I want
to see it developed still further, the
same as the telephone and bicycle,
have been developed. This is first
class country hereabouts, ibut hard, I
admit, for bicycling too much of it
stands upon end.
I welcome the development of cvci v
agency that tends to increase the at
tractiveness of country life and de
velop the social side of it. I believe
that i,. re m,nd more buildings like this
could be usetl to advantage, not only
because of the books, but because it
can be used as at place for social meet
ings, a place where you boys and girls
can meet socially.
The hardest worked individual on
the farm is apt to be the mother or
wife of the farmer. I believe in the
farmer cconpmizing, but on himself,
not on his wife. If you have got to
drop some one, (jrpp pnp hjrecj man
rather than the hired girl. I want to
iscc buildings like this one used for
mothers' meetings. It gives the wo
men a chance to meet each other so
cially, arid it puts them in better trim
for work.
Teach your boy to work, for he has
got to earn his own livelihood, to pull
his own weight. No one can pull it
for him. He will ibe a drone and a
drag if you do not let him do his own
part. My ideal of a boy is one who
will grow up and be able to support
himself and a wife and children. To
be fit to be an American citizen he. has
got to preserve his self-respect and
conduct himself so as to wrong no
one else.

it is the passing from the human to

"It is all wrong to leave the same
canned goods on display all summer.
Sameness in arrangement and in color
schemes arc monotonous. Fly-specked
goods arc synonomous with poor ad
vertising, and sameness of display
awakes no new interest in your store.
Keep clean, keep active, keep think
ing." Ex.
