A* farmer, writing to the Winona

his brother farmers some plain talk.
But why are farmers as well as oth

First—Inexperience. Many who came
West to farm have to learn by experi

Second—Getting in debt too much—
too much interest to pay.
Third—Some have signed notes for
their friends, and have had others'
debts to pay beside their own. This is
Fourth—Some farmers are not very
healthy and cannot work very hard.
Fifth—Some are lazy.
Sixth—Some are intemperate.
Seventh.—Some are spendthrifts.

be ruined. Wnat would our grain be

TO COMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY, NO
VEMBER 19th, 1873.
This institution is announced in accordance
with the declaration of the founders of the Na
tional Colony, that tlie early establishment of a
seminary of learning, on a liberal basis, at some
favorable point, was part of their plan.
It has been judged advisable to put the enter
prise under denominational control: it is, accord
ingly, introduced under the patronage of the
The Seminary building, now known as the
Methodist Church Block, is spacious and attract
ive, and admirably located. It fronts on the
Public Square, in Wurthington, within a short
distance of WestOkabena Lake.
It is intended to make theSeminary an honor
to the State—the equal ot any similar institution
in the West. The board ot instruction is already
large and embraces, in an unusual degree, both
the expeiience and abi'itj essential to success.
As occasion demands it will be enlarged and
nothing shall be vv am ing to the completeness of
the several depaitments.
The contemplated course of study will cover a
period of three years the design being to pie
pare students for a collegiate course, or to quali

of poverty and ciinie, is, by law, utteily exclud

guardian will under-estimate the importance of
tliiynost significant fact.
Prof. Ilumision takes charge of a department
with which he has been long and honorably con
nected, and brings vvilh him, asagi.tt to the in
stitution, philosophical and chemical apparatus
worth six hundred and fifty dollars.
PKICK9 OF TLITIOV—In older to extend as far
as possibb-, the benefits of the institution, to those
who desire it, and to meet the stiingeney of the
times, tuition, for the first six months, will be but
*S.0O per quarter. This charge will be uniform
for all studies except instrumental music, French
and ornamental needle woik.
The First Quarter will begin, as already an
nounced, Xov. 19th, 1873, and end Feb. 5th, 18T4.
The Second Quarter will begin on the 6th of Feb.
1874, and end on the Vpiil 6h, n-74. Exercises
will be suspended during the Holidays.

made to provide for any students who may pre
