withActing President Foster of tba Man-^tana Agricultural collage, a Stamiarii^aMW^aaajiM^ t*xUy taarnad ^lull ot tba^objees and aaapa at lee arork of aueh In-^etittition*. Professor Poster has long^baen connected with agricultural collegas^aad ei peri men t stations; he uas a^thorough knowledge bf their work and be^know a tba practical value they are to any^a lata. Their Hold of work ia different^front that of other educational Inatitutiona^and, becaitao of this difference, much good^ia aceompliahed that, without tneai.weuM^never be attained. Prom Profeasnr Foster^it aw learnotl that It will not betlte object^of the Montana Agric ultural college, nor^is it tlie object of any like collage, to make^^imply farmcra or ineclianK *, but rattier^to develop useful, |^rurtical men and wo^^men, so equipped that they may follow^successfully any vocation or profession^toward* whicli Ibeir I no Una I tout draw^them.
Inall agricultural colleges car* is taken^that capabilities ehall in tin way lie limited^or restricted, mid that aulllcienl latitude^be given for the full dimiday of Individual^preference* mid the development of pet-^aonal Abilities. The education offered by^these colleges is a substantial, practical^on*). It gives to the voting man or young^woman just such general information and^discipline of mind ami character aa are^needed to make intelligent and useful cit-^isees.
Thavoting people who graduate from an^agricultural culUtgo are not like other^graduates, for they aro educated out of^eyni|^athy with the callings of tho masses.^Tha lines of study pursued are calculated^to give training in quick observation and^accurate judgment; akill in manipula^^tion, and habit* of Industry, and to create^a taale for useful occupations. Such an^education as the agricultural collages are^giving w 111 extend tha Influence and value^of knowledge in the practical affair* of^life.
Inour Montana inatitution. students of^both sexes will be admitted under the^same terms and will have tha aaine ad^^vantages. The college will furnish oppor^^tunities for the education of the niaaaea.^It will give to the son* and daughters of^fanners, mechanics and the laboring^claeaca generally of Montana, a practical^or induatrlal education. No tuition will^be charged, and all other cx|^*nse* will be^made the lowest iiossihle, so list any en^^ergetic, ambitious young man or woman^of the state will be enabled to complete^tha course. This is why audi institutions^are so well attended and why the student*^are of the earnest, persevering kind.
Thecourse* of study do not differ ma^^terially from those of other educational^institutions except in the matter of lan^^guage. Knglish Is made prominent in nil^course* and French ami tierman are^usually given a place in the ladies'and the^mechanical courses. Tim time devoted to^classics is much less than in other col^^leges. In the agriculture course the in-^struct ion in chemistry, botuuy and physics^is made very thorough. In the mechanical^department the mathematical studio* re^^ceive much mora attention than unite^other course*.
Tooileetlnetive characteristic of tha^agricultural college l* it* industrial feat^^ure*. Ilcside* the regular lines of study^the atudeiit spend* a poi t on of each day^in improvcing the practical side of his^education. The young men who are mem^^ber* of the classes in agriculture learn^butter and cheese making: they are in^^structed to examine ami compare nuimiil*^of the different breed* and are taught the^merits and defect* of stock animal*, they^study practical farming in all it* hranchc*.^The student* of this division have an op-^IHtrtuiiily to work on the farm or assist^^n hum lino of experimental work at fair^wages, alien pot otherwise engaged.^Many student* contribute ton aril paying^expenses in this way. The agricultural^^tudriit also has employment in the orch^^ard. In tha garden and among the small^fruits, anil thus gains a great amount of^valuable practical information regarding^those important branches of farm work,^lie learn* the best methods of grafting,^budding, cross-fertilifuig ami other im^^portant mattes* pertaining to the market^garden, the nursery and greenhouse.
Thestudents who select engineer.ng or^mechanical course* are given work in^wood ami iron *hop^. These shop* are^equipped With hl.icksm:^hs^ forge*, sets of^carpenter tools. ^ood ami Iron lath**,^planers and all machinery necessary for^the thorough instruction ot the student.
Theindustrial work for the young ladlcn^embrace* instrumental music, shorthand^ami typewriting, telegraphy, typesetting,^drawing, woo-l carving,clay molding and^tliexurioua subject*of doiuestie economy,^su. t. as aewing. cutting and fitting of^dresse*. chemistry of cooking, household^tn.inage iiieul ami sanitation. \,. oppnr^tunny i* also usu .liy git en io practice and^siiidr tloriteulture.
Kronithe information Gathered from^l'rofessor Foster, it I ill readilt be teen^thut the agricultural college will give a^practical education,all education that will^enable n young man or soman to uake a^aiicccs* of lile. Tho Montana Agricultural^college has a bright future before it. It is^^ dilated in the richest grain producing re^^gion of the world, ami us scientific fann^^ing is no longer looked upon a* one of the^hobble* of rich men. the collage i* certain^to become a leading institut ion.

Whenabout to leave his old home after he had attained the highest honor that a great nation could^bestow upon him closed an address with these word: ^Neighbors, give your boys a chance.^ Wc
wouldrepeat these words and say to every father^and mother: ^(iivc your boys a chance ^ These^are days of action and exacting competition, days^when moral courage and brain power count, days^wherein there can be only a survival of the men^who arc mentally and physically the fittest. Aside^from the duty which you owe the State of giving^to it sons and daughters who will win their way^honorably in life, there is a parental duty devolv^^ing upon you to qualify them fpr the battle which^they will have to wage in the world's great arena,^whether their lot be cast in the professions or in^the no less honorable field of artisanship and^honest toil. Favored though they justly are in the^family circle, the day must come when in the inex^^orable law of fate their chairs will be empty by^your fireside and they will be out struggling alone^in the world with only their merit to aid them.^You will follow them with your best wishes, ap^^plauding their every effort and cheering them on^in their successes ; but grateful as will be your^encouragement, how very little balm will it be if,^despite his efforts, the son goes backward and the^neighbor's boy mounts up to heights upon which^he was bent. In the earlier days of this land you^may have had to till and toil, knowing little of^leisure and less of luxury, but for what was it all ^^Fir^^t, that you might have a competence, and next^and always, that your children might obtain positions higher and better even than your own. You,^mothers, know the pride you have in your sons. You know that deep down in your hearts there is a^well of tenderness and of love for even the erring one. You know, as well as the world docs, that his^success is heaven to you and his failure a heartache keener than even his own. What, then, should^you do ^ In the words of Lincoln, ^Give your boy a chance ' Give him an education that will fit him^to cope with the best. Teach him to love his home, and teach him that in it he will rind civilizing and^educational influences. If he has been to college, don't let his education stop there. If he has not^enjoyed the advantages of a gond education, encourage him now. He may be smart naturally, but if^he has nothing l)Ut his natural talents to help him there will surely come a time, just as he is mounting^highest, win n this lack of education will handicap him grievously. The time to remedy this is the^present. In the ^ Kncyclopcdia Britannica,^ now offered to readers of the STANDARD at 10 cents^a day. you will have a library fully the equal of any in the land. It is a digest of art, science, literature,^history and invention, an epitome of all that is good and lasting, a moral drawn from the works of^men and nations.
