Farmef, St. Paul: From the lately parched, frizzled and burnt up dis tricts of the Eastern and Western states conies the wail, loud and deep, "Give us potatoes for we have them uot."

The crop hits been good around the Twin Cities, aiid po tato raisers are reaping a rich harvest It don't cost anything to run a pi-hit ing office. Printers never recive any wa^es.

Why, even farmers, .in the generosity of their hearts, dump eord after cord of nice dry body wood at the publisher's dooj without.hope of recompense.

Fathers, Examine the Studies Pursued by Y oar Sons—Mental Exercise. I have been assured by learned pro fessors that the collegiate course is merely an exercise,useful in forming and strength ening the mind. Therefore, useless studies become useful as dumb bells, stiffening tl«e mental muscles and imparting tone to the intelligence. Would not useful studies and the acquiring' of facts needed in the daily grind to come be equally healthful to the mind? The most our graduates acquire is barely a smattering of each subject. Why? Merely because there is not time to give each branch of study conscientious and exhaustive research. It may be asked why, then, the number of studies is not limited. The answer is simple. Between the vanity of the parents, who like to say that their sons are deep in this abstruse subject or that high sounding science, and the stubborn conservatism of the faculty, retaining Eighteenth century sentiment in this Nineteenth century of practical life, the course is filled with tares and there is no room for the wheat. Of what use are Latin and Greek to the youth who must soon strip in the strug gle for bread? The barest excuse is that they give an insight into the derivation of language. Well? A dictionary will do as much. Why waste four years in ham mering: verbs and nouns, declensions and Conjugations 'lHtb 'a' boy who' is 'flestined afterward to sell coffee or soap? Of what valuable use is French? It will take sev eral years to learn, and the acquirement is purely ornamental, and in most cases not worth a, dollar to the future man. Fathers, examine the studies pursued by your sons. You will find that you are spending your money and wasting their most precious time storing up glittering tinsel to the exclusion of what can benefit! them in the sterner days to come, Cast them adrift upon the sea of life without a thorough education in some practical sub ject of value to the world, and which in a needy hour they may coin into bread, and you are casting them adrift in ships of lead without a life preserver or a spar aboard. A sunken rock or a storm and they are lost. If they need mental exercise let them juggle with practical subjects—mechan ics, bookkeeping, drawing, practical chem istry, arithmetic, the English language aid physics. Let them learn how to keep accounts, how to handle tools, how to build and work an engine, how to detect adulterations in staples of commerce, how to understand the machinery of the great practical world—and not leara the vaga ries of the land of dreams. If you have learned the bent of your son's mind, confine him strictly to studies pertaining to his calling and cast all others away.. Our boys are not fools. They know the uselessness of half the labors imposed upon them, and, being Americans, resent the... anoreaching' .upoit their liberty. Rather than Latin or Greek, they take up the fantasticoes of the poker deck, they twanlde a banjo, and are erudite only in the latest laws appertaining to trousers or collar. We neglect to give them weapons to fight the battle, and they be come skulkers in the rear. We tun^ them loose upon the worl4 with no means for employment they reply by becoming idle and profligate, prematurely wasted, the soul of Saturn in the body of Adonis, crowded from the race for fortune and fame by striplings of humbler life, whose education ran in narrow lines, but was sturdy and sharp as an ax to hew their path.—Henry Guy Carleton in New York World.

It will be to your interest to do so. P. A. McCarthy, Pres't. A mathematician has calculated that not one in twenty ot the idle men have trades. Probably no better argument could be advanced to im press upon parents the necessity of giving their sons some trade, upon which, at least, they could be depen dent, if all other resources fail. Among many people, the prevailing notion, (ifso it may Be styled) seems to be that their sons should not soil their hands with dirty machinery and learn the trade of mechanics. They will lose caste. They must all be either bank presidents, cashiers or business men. It's more fashionable. In the sham sense the mechanics may lose caste, but never in the true sense. For among them is generally found that respect for the laws of God and man which is, sometimes, hardly dreamed of in upper tendom. Than the mechanic profession or its sister, the tiller of tne soil, noue more honorable can be found. The social istic idea of equality among all will not be realized in either one genera tion or for several more to follow. Give your children a good, sound, practical education, let them Je.^rn some trade on which they can depend Educate-for utility and you will do more good for the coming generation thaircan be accomplished* by any amount of money.—lied Wing Re publican.
