Requires Study
The greatest year in the hlstofy
of American agriculture is about to
close The value of the farm crops
of tho United States in 1910 is near
ly nine billion dollars an increase of
about eight hundred million dollars
over 1909 Secretary Wilson of tho
United States department of agricul
ture says this increase is largely due
to tho result of the study of agri
culture as a science Our free schools
high schools and colleges all over
the country aro making agriculture a
part of tho regular course
This is the time of the year for
every young man who is not in
school to plan for a winter course
Tho crops are about harvested and
there is little work to be dono on the
farm for tho first threo months of
tho year
What do the young men on the
farm do during the winter months
1farm a question asked me but a
fow days ago My answer was that
somo of the moro energetic fellows
go away to school or else attend a
winter subscription school some
study read hunt and supply tho wood
dally but a far greater number loaf
around the farm postofflce or loatI
and do very little work and loss read
Ing and study Somo manage to
get work for nearly all tho warm and
pleasant days and again some visit
around among their kinsfolk who
aro doubtless glad to see thorn but
would enjoy the visit moro it it
were not so long
To the young man who spends most
of his lime in the winter working
at nothing let me suggest that life
is too short to lose three months
out of tho year If you do not expect

to teach or take up any other pro
fession you have to choose between
the farm of your own a commercial
business or working for some one
else If you have plenty of money
education and experience you may
find somo commercial business profit
able If you havo little education
and less common sense just plan to
work for somo ono else who can do
your thinking for you But If you
arc not to be a professional lawyer
doctor preacher or something of
that kind if you have not the money
with which to enter business or if
you wish to bo independent the farm
has a call for you
The fact is nearly ninety per cent
of tho young men of Eastern Ken
tucky will spend their lives on the
i I farm Are you nine out of every ten
i preparEd to run a farm as it should
bo run The lawyers and doctors
who study and work hard succeed tho
ones who do not fall The future farm
er who studies and works will suc
ceed ho who does not will fail
Young men of Eastern Kent ckyII
you must study farming or else leave
tho country in less than twentyfive
years Aro you ready to fall out and
leave tho hills of old Kentucky to
the sassafras tho bramble and the
wild animals If so the sooner you
leave the better if not you must not
let this winter pass without taking a
I course in agriculture somewhere
Borea College offers a course this
winter in Soils and Farm Crops al
so one for more advanced students
in Stock Feeding Theso will bo
more fully described in some later
years ahead of you in all probability The point is hovi to use these
years and not waste any of them
About the first aim of a young person in 1911 should be to get
some education I do not say this to draw more students to Berea
We have almost as many as we can possibly provide for now And
I am as sincerely interested in Hindmanand Morehead and Oneida
aud Buckhorn as in Berea But all these schools exist to help
young people I speak for your sake and not for the sake of any
Education will do things for you
the works of God the inventions of man the thoughts of great souls
that have passed through life before you
2 It will draw out your own powers You can never know
what talents you have until you polish them up and compare them
with the talents of others in school
3 It will put tools and strength and skill into your hand for
your calling in life whatever that calling may be
And every calling in these days requires education I am moat
concerned for the education needed in our mountains I am sure
the mountains are the best part of the South and that the people of
the mountains with the right education will be the superior people
of the South Education will double the crop on every mountain
farm and double the joy in every mountain home Many will not
believe this They will let people from outside learn to survey the
land and manage tho business and they will go on in the old ways
or backslide a little But in every place it is only a part of the
people who work for progress and improvement Everywhere we
find on the one hand the fearful negligent people who standstill or
go backward and on the other hand the enterprising courageous
people who go forward There will be enough of these people of
courage faith and unselfish public spirit to make the mountains
move foreward Will you be one of them
I wish you many Happy New Years
