For the Boys and Girls of the Farm
Dec. 2nd in the Warren
The second annual Short Course
lor tjie benefit of the boys and girls
ilrom the Country, will begin Dec.
2nd in the Warren High School.'
This course is designed to meet the
needs of the boys and girls from the
country, who have either completed
the common school course or have
reached the age wihen they feel that
they have outgrown the rural school.
Due to work upon the farm, many
have been unable to begin school un
til late in the fall. These same ones
have had to leave school early in the
spring. Not only do these boys and
girls feel too old and too large to con
tinue their work in the rural school
but they feel that the kind of work
there offered does not now meet their
greatest needs and such is the truth
in many of the country schools.
It is for exactly this type of young
people that we offer our Short
Course. How much better it would
ube for those who can spare the time,
to spend it in study and self-improve
ment, rather than spend the winter
months in idleness and loafing. 1
The state of Minnesota has appro
priated $2500.00 yearly in. order that
this school may be the center ifrom
which may be spread the gospel of
better farming, better house keeping,
better home making and better and
happier living.
This school is not merely for the
people of Warren, but if it fulfills its
mission, it must serve this entire
community and the w^rk offered

1 With this thought in ^mind the
i Board of Education and the School
Faculty will spare no efforts to make
S the course practical and helpful to
I all. i*-\
The bulk of the work offered will
be of an industrial nature: Special
stress wdll be placed upon Agricul
ture, Sewing, Cooking, Manual Train
i ing and Mechanical Drawing, however,
Reading, Spelling, Writing, Farm
Arithmetic and English will be offer
i ed to those who are deficient and
need some or all of these subjects.
Prom our exporience with this
I course last year, I have concluded
I that it is impossible to outline an
exact-course to follow before we
I know the needs of those who may
plan to take the work^lWe can
promise however, to give those who
attend as difficult work as they can
handle and enough of it to keep them
exceedingly busy.
There should be 15 or more ambi
tious boys and girls ready to take up
this work the very first day.
Let it be understood that this
course is offered only to those from
the farm.
The course is absolutely free to all
associated ohools but a tuition of $2
per month will be charged those from
other districts such tuition to be
paid by the district and not

Books arid material necessary in
connection with the work will be -fur
nished free, except in Manual Train
ing, where the pupil will be expected
to pay for the lumber he uses.
Our High School affords two excel
lent literary societies which will give
an opportunity, for doing literary
work. The special departments are
better equipped than they were last
year. Thus more and better work
should be accomplished.

The first local, Thtflast part of August I changed
any headquarters from Gothenburg to
SmAland's Taberg. This place can

I left/Smalarid's Taberg the 18th of

th&t 26th direct for Berlin, Germany.
Frok ffltalmo we boarded the flyer for

Beritainly was pleasant on the water,
eve^rytping was so comfortable. Ruth
a n| I Explored the ferry from the
steerage to the hurricane deck and as
a reward found a splendidly equipped
reading room, where one could spend
iioaahs.^- It was beautiful to see the

we: landed after four hours on the

comparatively flat in contrast to

Berlin is a beautiful city. Seigers
Abbe is one of the most beautiful
places of Berlin. As far as the eye
can see runs a street as smooth as
glass and about 150 feet wide. On
each side are statues of marble of the
various eminent men of Germany.
Those statues, thirty-two in number,
were presented to Berlin by the pres
ent ruler, to beautify the city. Each
statue costs 50,000 mark. Overlook*
ing this street is the huge German
statue of "Liberty and Victory": it
corresponds to, as well as resembles
OUT "Godess of Liberty," tho I prefer
the latter.
Berlin has an innumerable number
of museums. One could almost eay
that Berlin is a museum. One which
especialy impressed me was the Alte
Gewerbe wherein lie the embalmed
corpses of old Egyptian Kings that
date, front some time before Christ. It
Is weird to see these shrouded forms
and has an odd effect in that it seems
to transplant one to the days of old
when tone might stand around the
bier of! these same old kings.
The. "Berliner Zoologischer Gart
ens" is truly the most interesting as
well as the most beautiful we have
yet seen]"' It has rich collections of
our most rare animals, some of which
now are extinct. It was quite home
like to see the American buffalo there
and also our various specimens of
birds. $ What we especially noticed
as quite original was Dame Chim
panzee, carefully attended by her
spouse, having her coffee and fash
ionably smoking her cigarette. The
Zoo, within this garden,, gives us the
picture of the home of the different
animals. One could easily spend a
day or two in this large and interest
ing garden,
I think I'm right in saying that the
suburbs of -Berlin are' even more
beautiful, as one gets the wide ex*
panse of forestv
and water which
make a trip so enchanting.
We made a pleasure- trip to New
babelsburg and Potsdam. They are
large cities and lie about 15 miles
from Berlin each has a population of
about 70,000. We took the subway
to Neubabelsburg, the nearer city of
the two. Here we visited with a
brother of Fran Abstain "our land
lady". From tbere we took a ferry
boat-or launch across a lake towards
the beautiful city of Potsdam. I won
del? if you can imagine the beautiful
scenery We then saw. We sailed thru
ithe narjrow neck of the lake which
widened put and surrounded the
be seen the city, lying somewhat up
wards. We landed on the other side
of the bridge where we took the elec
tric to Sanssouci, the "Garden of Joy"
or "without sorrow" as it is called.
Surely when one sees this, one can
forget everything but the knowledge
that one is living and able to see such
beauty. The main entrance is a long
vista of trees headed by a fountain
oL marble the crown of which is a
crock of yellow and scarlet Oriental
flowers. At a right angle to this al
ley runs another and here the eye is
fascinated. Smoothly it runs, lined
on both sides by trees and in the dis
tance a fountain 130 feet in height,
the highest in the world. This foun
tain seems to stand guard for the old
castle on the bluff. This is reached
by a series of terraces, six in number,
and on each terrace fifty stepe. This
is the castle of Frederick the Great
"Father of the Fatherland." To the
left of the castle and a little below,
lies a veritable paradise, a circular
enclosure walled in by Oriental
shrubs, 20 feet in height and at vari
ous intervals small doorways. It is
not unlike the Roman arena in shape.
Flowers and shrubs decorate the inte
rior and in the center stands the stat
ue of the Greek archer ready to send
off his "deadly arrow." The shrubs
surrounding are. in form of gateways.
We climbed another terrace and saw
in the distance the form of the
"Sleeping Maiden." Just then we
heard the flute and drum and a few
minutes later the Army of Orphan
Boys marched past. It is splendid
how nicely the -Fatherland looks after
its children. At the chateau on the
bluff, Frederick Wilhelm the Great is
buried, according to his own wish, in
order that it might be truly Sanssouci
truly "without sorrow." I will never
forget this place and will set It down
in my memory as one of the chief
places of beauty.
We had luncheon and dinner and,
then returned by train direct to Ber
ITh'whefe.the "taxi" landed us diirecf
jjfejy^our.own 'door.''*.- ^^^"^-''.-v
I hope by this, that you can get a
miniature idea of our doings. I feel
I must mention the German ball
which we attended. It could be called
cosmopolitan as we met splendid peo
ple from several nations. Italy and
England were represented by stu
dents. We met several lawyers and
doctors, one from America. Best of
all were the American friends we
met. One, an American bishop, will
make rather a long stay here, but he
told us that America was a magnet.
He appreciated Minnesota, as well as
I do, that being his state too. Several
Americans reside in Berlin tho most
of those we met will return home.
Will now close with best wishes to
you all.

to the husband who survives her.
Deceased was a sister of Mr. J. H.
McArthur, of this city, and of Mrs. N.
C. McDonald, who formerly lived here,
