The Boy The way to keep the boy on the farm is to make the farm a profitable place for him. Pay him for his work—he is the best help you will ever get. He will warm up to you and the farm if you pay him in money. If you pay him in stock or a share of crops, it belongs to him by right, just the same as if you had given him a daily wage. It certainly would not be fair, for instance, to give him a calf and then take all or part of the money when the calf, or the cow grown from the calf, is sold. Pay the boy and teach him to save and use the bank. Then he will grow into a business man, and the farm will appeal to him as u good business.

The Journal received the fol lowing letters as to the en tertainment of the big lea guers: From C. H. Khbetts, Brook lyn's president. "I accept, with pleasure, for my team, the invitation o dine as guests of the Even ing Journal. We would re quest a simple dinner, with light beer and no other stim ulant. That is our idea of the proper drink for athletes in training." From John Burke, New York's Trainer. "May 1 suggest in regard to the dinner; that the men, while the baseball season is on, live very temperate lives. "If you will give them a good American dinner, plain American beer, they will ap preciate it." It is because of their marked mildness and their general healthfulness that Olympia and other high-class American beers are good for athletes as well as for other strenuous people.
