WHY CHILDREN SHOULD
-STUDY MORE AT-HOME
It is a source of much regret to us that
in the upper grades and high school w
are unable to secure home study to any
satisfactory degree. It is certain that
parents are not encouraging i. generally
speaking. Avery few of our students
voluntarily study at home. But they are
ndeed few. A few others study because
careful parents insist that the child study
at home, and then sees personally that hs
does it It does not seem to be the "style"
to study at home. We wish it were. One
of our boys who belongs to the class who
voluntarily study at home, says it a com
mon thing for him to be ridiculed by his
fellow-students for studying at home.
And who are these who ridicule thus? It
is those who And more pleasure in stand-
ng on street corners, indulging in idle
tajk. in smoking, and in a general waste
of time They do not have an enthusiasm
for hard work and the habit of mastery,'
and a willingness to pay the price are
We affirm that it is the duty of every
parent or guardian to see, personally, that
the child is, under ordinary circumstances,

evenings of Monday. Tuesday, Wednes
day and Thursday of each week of the
school year. . Study i the child' busi
ness. He should be made to understand,
in no uncertain terms, that everything is
secondary to his school duties. The up
per grade and high school work to . those
who do it well, is hard work. There is no
time for social parties and other functions,
which are fruitful of no good and abiding
results. Ah! her is where the fatal
error creeps in. 1 ne student goes . to
school with a purpose of seeing how little
he can do and still "pass." He calls
school work "a snap" and by so doing
invites his own failure. In this as in all
things success consists in doing the com
mon things in an uncommon way. Let
the student be impressed at home with
the fact that ha is engaged in hard work;
that every day is, with him, a crisis; that
everything is at strke and that he must
"win out" or all will be lost.
But there is fortunately another side.
While some are preparing for failure by a
lack of intensity in thsir work, we have
also those who are later to become lead
ers, The boy who Was recently ridiculed
by those beneath him . in character for
home study belongs to that class of boys
and girls in our upper grades and high
school, who at this early period are the
posessors of sterling character and
power. There are in our high school
those whose daily devotion to duty, and
earnest, loyal and untiring effort, acquire
a certain heroic significance, and call for
the highest esteem from teachers. And
here, indeed, lies the real strength and
power of these lives. They are daily be-
ing a reserve power, so tnat in after life,
when crisis come, and testa ars met,
there will be no wavering, no hesitation,
no giving up. but a fearless, tenacious.
unflinching struggle and ultimate triumph,
we should be grateful indeed if parents
would unite and see that our young people
engage in study four nights in the week.
We long to see these young people in line
for the best work- of which they are capa
ble and to achieve this the co-operation,
eympainy ana support or tn parent are
indispensable. J. M. Martin
WW CAME BACK - :
Fredericktown, Mo Dee. 11. A dog
belonging to A. E. Kinney, a ranchman of
thi section, has just completed a trip of
300 miles, returning to his former home
here from .western Nebraska., Kinney
left a month ago for Nebraska to reside.
taking his household good overland in a
wagon. The dog followed until western
Nebraska was reached, when he disap
peared. A few days ago the animal
turned up at hi former home, having
traveled 300 mile across the mountain
chains, deserts and deep streams which
he was compelled to swim.
STILL IN THE CAME
The secretary of the interior, ' who is
doing such splendid work in prosecuting
western land ti laves, :presses surpr s .
and indignation over the easy manner in
which Richards and Comstock of Neb
raska practically escaped punishment for
the illegal fencing of over 200,000 acres
of government land.' . Upon pleading
guilty according to the press reports, the
defendants were sentenced to remain six
hours in the custody of the marshal, and
pay a fine of $300 . each. See Hitch
cock, considers the punishment utterly
inadequate. ' "The indictment , was the
result of four years of determined effort.
and the exdenditure of thousands of dol
lars by the department," he said, "The
reeult ie discouraging, but we . shall not
csase our efforts" Orange Judd Farmer
AfTR FAITHLESS DEALER
A score of seedmen scattered gener
ally over the territory east of the Rocky
mountains, are temporarily under,, the
ban of agiculture charged with dealing in
adulterated alfalfa and . clover seeds.
Under the law the secretary of agricul
ture is directed to obtain on the open
market samples of various grass seeds,
test the same, and if found adulterated
or misbranded to publish the results of
the tests, together with the names of ' the
dai e.i. Wo jjubt many of thass charg
ed wi .1 tms infraction of tna law an in
nocent so far as willfully offaring a lult-
erel eeels are concerned. Ce'tainlyal
reputable seed man are anxkus to co
operate with the department in the work
of driving out adulterations. While it
means hardships in some directions the
law should eventually work out to the
good of dealers and consumers. Orange
