What the Schley court of investiga ion could not do was to bring in a find ng to the effect that Sohloy showed owardice at the battle of Santiago, hough it is evident that all possible ef ort was made to miminize the glory of tis victory through strictures on his onduct.

In an article entitled "For the Boys" vhich appeared in the issue of Ihis p: per for the 28th, Nov, some severo crii cisn were mado upon farm life. I agree with many statements made by the wri tor, especially the one on'taining the central throught, namely that of persua ding a boy to tbecomo a farmr, just to keep him at home." .For n(o other ob ject than to keep him at home, no Ioy, ilould be induced to farm. Still the id vantages of farm lifo should be I poimed 'ut to him in a fair and impartial way Ro should not be prejudiced mgainst farming by extolling the good Of other cupaltions and debhasinig thaut of agriliul uire. After ''a fair knowlege of ali profen iens [arc in his ,i"" a appeail to) ho~vs to rominii on ho farm for thme reason that aun inmtelli. ent aind industrious farmer alwan- suto eeds. The idea is to iniduco iovs to :hicato themselves, thenm a pply 'heir nowlodgo to farnmig indust ries, anid so raise thme stanldard of'en cuntrv li 14' ortainly this shoul lie so; (-etily~ tore can be no serious objection to t his id cemtainly, even the writer himself uld lbe coniverted to thme idea since in 'if hsis '''icle, he0 to says Io '''-'"'fi'a'd too ougm o .. uicatedl or uneducated, sumom . a disgraco to thme country which owns in than any other man, I am tunable to y'. The next criticisim I wish to call at ntion .to is that made by thme influen(eo farming on thme intellect. Th'e writer y's that '-nothling (leve-lops thle hmumn ind like dliflienmlties."' T1rue; but 1hold, if a are to take your evidence, does not te farm furnish "'diflimcullies"' enough to ako a veritable Solomonm of every.) poor mn of soil? "'ExpKeice teaches many mings contrary to theory." Let us ap. ly this. Your theory la that farm-n life InI not produce great minmds. Expori eo teaches that mt (does. Doos not his iry show that more great men have hail I from farming than from any other acupation? Who is regarded as the. mndiug man mi ouir owni state to-day? A irner.. Truly, "experience teaches Iany things contrary to theory." As a mattor of fact, every farmer to suoceed, 208t possess certain business qualities, specially those of judgment and exeu ive ability. Judgment is required, be ause the farmer in his relation to his em 'boyes is frequently called upon to de ide questions mere or less perplexing in heir nature, and suooesi in business re. inres that he be able to judge aright be merits of different measures and tethods. Executivo ability is required 'the farmer must constantly n'rlansi suitable to the -. In no aVe, to Uwn,. eont of oommon 5eOus,. aracter of. his business nieoea& thee abndanfpr rutie ,pt the winter says that many naar life the easiest lot one could sh," and adds, "if that is so, is not its >ut desirable end the one most to be zidedr"- Hie-hiebslf, however, declares it'farm .work is -the roughet man a encounter," then asks, "why arge a y. $nto agrIonltural pursuits?" Bo the y uttetI.e~r the farm, if the work is sy and Ie~ve if it's hard, (anteed of farmuing the boy is advised seek thle "miull factories, machine P' nd coanto. othere industrial sBI11"4Ug W)Io are paying for fed handsu n otIve braso," Tbis 9~4q Ra*IhmIpg site pqy ti.

Wherein are there advantages, if advantages they be superior to those offered by the farm? Lastly, "let the" boy go where he must hustle, and Ill1 guarantee he will never ask for alms or be looked tip for vagranoy." When a boy ongages in the "roughest work man has to encounter," he's pretty upt to be a hustler, and thero fore, we have the writer's word for it, a farm boy "will never ask for alms or be looked up for vagrancy." But even with. out this timely assurance, I must admit I've never boon uneasy about farm boys. It is a new idea abroad in tie land, that, which brands the firm boy as the em bryo tramip. No land has over had cause to fear injury from its farming classes. Williams Jennings Bryan said, "Burn down your cities and leave your farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic," but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in this country." The farmers have always been regarded as the founds ation stone of society, and unhappy will be the daiy whei an effort is made to deprive the country of those who food and clothe it. S. M.
