lijfiSP The time of the prophets past and wisdom Is no longer
revealed to men by angels or other divine means Every man has
got to work for his knowledgepick it up here and there and learn
how to use U Nothing will help a man more than a newspaper it
picks up knowledge from everywhere sifts out what he is most likely
to use and gives it to him in the clearest easiest way The news
paper is tho most efficient tool of the progressive manIt takes the
place of revelation r INhIM
Children grow up We want them to become men and women
This means that they must sometime strike out for themselves
It is a natural impulse for this that sometimes leads them to run
away from homo or to elope and get married before they ought to
The best way for a young person to begin to be independent is
to leave homo for a good school There they are left to look after
themselves but havo the influence of teachers and the occupation of
studythey are kept busy And they meet the best young people
from other places
If they did not learn a thing it would still be better for them to
have this experience of going away ffom home to school
But they do learn from books and from contact with others and
come back no improved that thoir parents are proud of them
The ufos important period for any young man or woman is that
time when they are just growing into mauhopu or womanhood for at
that time they make the choices and take the courses which show
what they will be thru their after life at twenty every one can tell
whether a young man or woman will be good or bada success or a
failure happy or miserable It is to young people at that age that
this editorial is directedwe wish to suggest to them a few thoughts
What are your prospects in life my young friend fAre you
growing better or worse r Are you learning or not r Are you suc
ceeding or failing If you are not getting all that you desire in the
way of success and happiness uow Is the time to do something about
it before it Is too late and when the effects of any effort you make
may be felt thru your whole life
What you are yourself is beyond the help of any outside person
But your success will depend mostly on what you do with the talents
which have been given you whether or net you make the most of
them and especially whether or not you develop them and make
the most you can out of them This latter thing is what we want to
talk to you about Are you doing all you can to make your talents
as good as pos lblpIn other words are you getting all the educa
tion you can use f
Aside from tho character of a man and his natural brains there
Is nothing about him so important as his education No matter how
smart ho is an education will make him able to use his brains
better no matter how dull he is an education will help him And
it is a fact that almost any man with an education is a better man
than almost any other one without it There are very few men who
have made success in thin country without an education thero is
no one of importance who baa not had at least the full school educa
tion and history proves that a man has about two hundred times as
good a chance to become successful if he has a full college education
In the face of figures like that it is no use to argue that nn education
does not pay
The chance to take hold of the great power of educatiou and
make a success of yourself is one that comes to every young mad or
woman at this time It will cost money and time and hard work
and separation from loved ones and some hardship but it will give
increased power and wealth and happiness and a better life for all
the years that you may live Many a young fellow has been scared
out by the few little sacrifices which are called for at the startand
has afterward seen the duller slower poorer boy get ahead of him in I
life because that boy was not afraid to make the sacrifices was I
willing to pay tho price of an education and the bigger success that
it brings I
Every thing good must be paid for in this life and an education
is one of the best things there is It must be paid for too but it
more than repays any one who is willing to make the sacrifice
How about it young men or woman are you willing to work a
little harder to live a little plainer to sacrifice a little now for a few
years so that you can haye all the higher success and greater happi
neas that comes from an education f Or is the price too high for
you to payf Aro you going to make all you can out of yourself
or are you going to fail because of cowardice and laziness r You
can have an education you can be a success and be happy if you
will pay the price And all that the price calls for is the use of a
little manhood or womanhood Have you got it in you r If you

time to read thru the supplement

right or all wrong We will read It

question to read It also
Hard to Be All Thing to All Men
Do not think that your learning and
genius your wit or sprightliness are
welcome everywhere I was once told
that my company was disagreeable
because I appeared so uncommonly
happy Zimmerman
Old methods Have Fallen Behind
and Schooling Is Necessaryto Suc
cess A Full Years Work Worth
More than Two Years of Broken
Any new thing coming into general
use always meets three different class
es of people those who welcome its
appearance those who think it will
work all right the halt hearted ones
and those who are positive that it
will not succeed or that It will ruin
the country When the first horse
rake made Its appearance among the
farmers it created much discussion
Some said tt Is just the thing and
I shall have one Just as soon as I
can get Jothers felt its use rather
uncertain and were willing tor their
neighbor to try It first while Btlll
others were sure that It would never
come Into general use Those who had
faith In the horse rake continued its
use the doubttul ones gradually came
to its support and those who saw
nothing but evil in it being unable to
keep up simply died off and thus the
horse rake came Into general use
Just as the horse rake gained gen
eral acceptance Just so It Is with
every new thing Some time ago a
college education was considered a
luxury for the rich Today most pro
fessional men many farmers and
business men of all kinds feel that
ftiher education Is useful in their
lives The lawyer and the doctor
without professional training have
almost gone the way of the hand
rake Tho fight Is now on for the
A young man who had been watch
ing the scientific reports of scientific
farming took a thorough training in
this work Last year he put out his
first potato crop TJw farmers watch
ed him and discussed his methods as
they did the horse rake When he
gathered his crop it was found he
had produced more on four acres than
his neighbor on a field of more than
twice that size Today some ot his
half hearted neighbors are thinking
of taking one term In some agricul
tural college Of course the one term
Will help some Just so it Is with
boys and girls In all lines of work
they are beginning to realize that
tho old ways of doing things are los
ing ground and that they must get
In touch with new ways They are
half converted to the new as the
Bible says they are luke warm
This taking an occasional term
away at school is better than not
going at all but ft is very poor
substitute for taking a regular course
The excuse usually given for not
taking a regular course and entering
school at the beginning of the fall
term Is cannot afford It
Now tho real cause in most cases
Is not seeing clearly the benefits to
be derived from such a course It
you think this statement not correct

James of Harvard in the American
Magazine on tho Powers of Men
This article appears In the October or
November Issue of 1907
I wish to say right here thAta
