:HE FARMER'S EDUCATION.
Reed Not Be Unlike That For Oth
ers la Ewentiala.
There seems to be a difference of
pinion as to the kind of education
hlch farmers need, but all agree that
.iccessful agriculture depends upon ed
cation. 1 can see no reason why a
inner primarily should receive any
liferent education than any other per
ira. What difference does it make
,'hether a boy means to be a farmer, a
oetor, a lawyer or a hod carrier? The
amfort of life as well as its useful
ess, ln whatever sphere, depends upon
lental grasp and power, and It is the
usiness of the collego to give this very
Iilng. The technical studies by which
ie doctor, the lawyer and the agricul
arist are equipped for their work by
o means exhaust the scope of a col
,ge education. It is intended to fit
len and women to fill their appointed
laces lu life with satisfaction to them
elves and profit to their fellows.

THE FOOL WHO WOfC
Horace Greelers Ttrmt
In New York City.
When Horace Greeley first went to
New York city, a green, awkward
country hoy, he met with discourage
ment. For two days he tramped the
streets, visiting two-thirds of the print
ing offices In the town and always de
ceiving a cold refusal of bis services.
His biographer, Mr. W. A. Linn, says
that by Saturday night Greeley was
" thf the ?af tnlm no
for the country on Monday, before his
last dollar was gone.
It happened that some acquaintances
0( uis landlord, who called on Sunday,
told him of an office where a compos
itor was wanted. Greeley went there
Monday morning before the place was
open. His appearance was so uncouth
that he would have been rejected there
also if the foreman had not had diffl-
ln KettillS a compositor for a
i"c - c "l .
Thls was setting up a small New
Testament with narrow columns, the
text interspersed with references to
notes marked in Greek and other un-
the task and so little could the com
positor earn at it that several men had
abandoned the work almost as soon as
they had begun it.
The foreman offered the work to
Greeley, believing that in half a day
the boy would prove himself incapable
of performing It. When the proprietor
saw Greeley at work he asked the fore
man why he hired that fool and said,
"Pay him off tonight."
But the foreman did not pay him off.
This boy had worked on a New Eng
land farm, had cut wood In the winter
cold and in summer had worked ln the
lleld3 under the noon sun. He was not
afraid of toil. He set that Testament.
When the foreman' examined the first
proof he found that Greeley had set
more type and set It better than any
one else who had tried.

The native tilts his huge hat sidewise
to avoid a crush, and often the coolies
swing aslant in the alley or duck into
! a store to avoid a catastrophe.
j The Chinese as a people are modest
ln their dress. The person is rarely
exposed. Women wear double breast
ed sacks which fit tight to the throat
and men are usually covered. But
under the stress of hard labor the man
at the forge is stripped to the waist,
and ln the foundry a nearly nude
workman strides the iron seesaw like a
horse ln the treadmill. The butcher
cleaves his flesher on the block amid
dried rats and skins of fowls stretched
taut on the rack. Next door the gold
beater hammers ln his cave. Beyond
the kindling man piles high his forest
of fagots. Near by the miller is beat
ing the meal through coarse sieves.
Ilia neighbor skins fish and hopes to
sell them from the box where they
float under a feeble spurt of water. In
the adjtrining den beautiful embroider
ies are piled mountain high, with silks,
satins and brocaded tnffetas ln won
drous designs of dragons and flowers.

" ROPE8 AS F'lRE ESCAPES'.
A.n Experience Which Shook One
. Mitn'a Conlldenee 1b Them.
"Yes, I know that most of the boys
carry a rope around with 'em," said
the cenunercift! traveler, "and the time
was when I would not have taken the
road without one, but I gave mine to
my wife for an extra clothesline three
or four years ago. I rend occasionally
at n rone saving somebody from a
burning hotel, but I don't care to be
laved that way."
"Hut you don't want to be burned
with the hotel, do your was asked.
"Of course not, but if I can't get
down by the stairs or the lion fire
esoiipe I'll take my chances on a mat
tress or a firemen'B ladder."
"But what's the matter with a knot
"I didn't think anything wa the
matter for many year. I usd to go
to bed feeling aa tuft aa a baby ln
his crib, and if I found a traveler who
dldnt carry a fifty foot rope ln hit grip
I at him down aa a very rckl man.
One day when I was in an inaiana
town a lot of n jot to talkln about
ruuM and bunting hotel, and wall
I eyed bluffer offered to bet me $5 to $ 1
that I couldn't allde down my pope
, from a third story window and not
half kill myself. Of course I Jumped
at tho bet, but he knew what he was
talking about I hadn't lowered my
self six feet before the rope burned
my hands and I let go and broke a leg.
Tho trick was tried by three others
and though they escaped broken bones
I they were badly shaken up and tongue
bitten. After my log mended I bluffed
i everybody I met on that rope business.

Imagine, if yon can but you never
can a mighty cleft in the level earth
a third of a mile wide, its brinks sharp,
precipitous, reaching over 1,200 feet
downward, sometimes almost perpen
1 dleular, sometimes banked with huge
' heaps of talus or buttressed with spln-
dling pinnacles and towers often sur
mounted with eagle nests, and all
fainted, glowing with the richest color
: vast patches of yellow and orange,
j -trenklngs of red and blue with here
I a towering abutment of red and there
! another all of yellow. At the bottom
j flows the gleaming green river, and at
the top the dark green forest reaches
to the canyon edge, and sometimes
even rugged and gnarled pines, the van
guard of the wcxl, venture over the
precipice to find footing on some ledge
: or to hang, half dislodged, with angular,
dead arms reaching out into the mighty
depths, a resting place for soaring
eagle or hawk. The sides of the can
yon being not of solid rock, but of
crumbling, soft formation, have fur
nished plastic material for the sculp
turing of water and wind, which have
tooled them Into a thousand fantastic
forms. One's eye tracesoit gigantic
. castles, huge dog forms, btfW forms, ti
tanic faces all adding to the awful im
Dressiveness of the Dlace.
For miles the canyon stretches north- '
ward from the lower falls. From
numerous well guarded outlooks the
spectator, grasping hard upon the rail
ing lest the dizziness of these heights
unnerve him, may behold a hundred
varied views of the grandeur, looking
either toward the falls, which seem to
fill the canyon end like a splendid white
column of marble, or off to the north
ward, where the stupendous gorge
widens out, loses some of it? '.Vpring,
admits more of the forest Anally
disappears among rugged moj,iuUins.
Everywhere the view is one that
places the seal of awed silence upon the
lips. It never palls, never grows old.
! On soon sees all too much of geyser
1 and paint pot; of this, never. At first
the sensation of savage Immensity is
I so overpowering that the spectator
gathers only a confused sense of big
ness and barbaric color, but when he
has made the perilous descent to the
canyon bottom below the falls, when
he has seen the wonder from every
point of view, he begins to grasp a
larger part of the whole scene, to form
a picture which will remain with him.

The Vinton of Birds.
Birds have very acute vision, per
haps the most acute of any creature,
and the sense is also more widely dif
fused over the retina than Is the case
with man. Consequently a bird can
see sideways as well as objects in front
of it. A bird sees, showing great un
easiness in consequence, a hawk long
before it is visible to man. Bo, too,
fowls and pigeons find minute scraps
of food, distinguishing them from
what appear to us exactly similar
pieces of earth or gravel.
Young chickens are also able to find
their own food, knowing Its posltiou
and bow distant It is, as soon as they
are hatched, whereas a child only very
gradually learns either to see or to
understand the distance of objects.
Several birds, apparently the young of
all those that nest on the ground, can
see quite well directly they come out
of the shell, but the young of birds that
nest ln trees or on rocks are born blind
and have to be fed. Chambers' Jour
