What Waits for the Hoys and Cirls
AVhen yon are a man. Farmer Hoy.
tin' farms in your neighborhood will
he heiter farms; they will he cultivat
ed better, and grow bigger crops; bet
ter live stock, ami more of it will be
on them; there will be better build
i ings, better roads, more machinery,
! less hard physical work and greater
, demands for clear and accuratO think
1 tag. All this means that the farmer
of that time will have to |>a a better
farmer than those of today and this,
in turn, means thrt fTght now, while
you aro a boy. if you won! 1 be one
of these good farmers, you must begin
to prepare yourself for It. You must
lose no chance to Btudy. to acquire
j useful knowledge., to keep yourself
I strong in body and mind, to iV.r.n good
' habits, if yon do these things, the
futuro is yours: i' you do not, you
will he swept nsld ! by t'.e march of
pr0greS8, and he one of the. "poor
farmers," the "failures." What are
you doing about it? Aro you making
the most of your school, of tho practi
cal training you get on tho farm, of
the t-ooks and papers you read? Have
J'OU ever thought about a college
course?the short course in agricul
ture, at least?and about tho fact that
! a farmer needs to prepare for his
work just us does a lawyer or a doc
tor? If you begin your life-work
poorly prepared, the blutnO will be
largely your own. for on every side
tho doors of opportunity nro open.

bo demanded of the houaokeopor a
wider rfcngo of knowledge, a capacity
to deal with problems which aro now
left cntlroly to the physicians, or the

means that you, too. must keep both
body and soul clean and pure and
strong, that you must train your hands

ready for the duties thai will be yours.
If you aro thus prepared, you will help
