How familiar the grounds about
the building are! They consist of
a half or quarter of an acre of land,
selected possibly because it was
good for little else—not a tree to
offer a hand's breath of shade, or
a shrub or vine to break the mono
tony or to hide the unsightly out
buildings. Does it seem, then, a
poor, insignificant thing, this plain
little building in its patch of bar
Under its roof the judge's son
and the cobbler's boy fare alike,
and grow up to know and respect
each other. Men whose only edu
cational advantages were a few
years on these rude benches have
won success in every department
of human activity. At a gather
ing of about three hundred suc
cessful business and professional
men of a prominent city, it was as
certained that about nine-tenths
came from the country.
Is it, then, unreasonable to urge
that the rural school grounds be
made more attractive by the plant
ing of trees and shrubs? With
little expense the bare ground
about the building can be con
verted into a place of beauty. The
pupils themselves, with the aid of
teachers and friends, can do it. Is
it not a work well worth under
taking? The Youth's Companion
believes that it is. Moreover, it
believes that the growth of the
imagination and the artistic nature
