Country vs. City
For Educating Children
We hear much about giving our
children the educational advant
ages of the city. It is a mistaken
idea. Brains and character are
not developed by artificial society
associations. The sidewalk and
the city pavement are poor soil
for the growth of intelligence.
The most acute and shrewdest of
brains develop in men whose feet
come in intimate contact with
mother earth. Taking the child
to the city to educate him is
neither important nor wise as it
appears. His attention is given
to many unessential thi..gs which
make for artificial culture. He
develops receptive faculties and
loses the power to produce any
thing of value. In the struggle
for existence and in survival of
the fittest a country bred and edu
cated boy has the advantage. His
nearest competitor in the city is
the newsboy or bootblack who
learns the principles of compe
tition in business.
Again we hear much about the
comforts and pleasures of life in
the cities. It is true that in con
densed centers of population
many of the conveniences and
comforts have been available to
people of moderate means
through community co operaiion.
But here also the philosophy of
our reasoning may not go deep
enough to show its falacy If one
is only seeking personal pleasure
through mental and physical ex
citement and lazy or indifferent
comfort rather than having at
heart the advancement of the race
toward greater perfection, that
fellow is going wrong. There is a
great truth handed down to us in
the saying of the greatest prophet
of all time that “he who shall
seek to save his soul shall loose
it”.
It would seem that the inccased
comfort and ease of physical life
in the cities should increase the
length of life and it is possible
that it would do so were there not
other conditions which offset the
apparent gain. At any rate we
believe in securing every comfott
and advantage possible in our
country homes and with the dc
' velopments of invention there are
| tew of the comforts of the city
j which may not be had in the
rural distiicts. The city with its
horde of middlemen, its army of
insurance men, real estate men
and other predatory parasites too
numerous to mention is a collas
sal burden, the support of which
in its final analysis may be traced
to the wealth producers on our
farms.
May we not look forward to
a lessening of this evil when our
producers shall have learned the
great principle of co-operation
and also that of contribution in
such away that they may be ap
plied to their business. This will
result in the larger development
of rural life and releive the con
gestion and lack of balance which
is becoming so appaient in our
cities. “The stone which was re
jeeted shall become the head of
the corner.” Agriculture, the
fundamental business of the world
will be exalted and find a true *
place in the esteem and support '
of the people. Our new west
should profit by being developed
at a time when advantage may be
taken of so much invention and
experience which has accumu
lated in the progress of the past
century. —Field and Farm
