Francis I'enbody, the first professor

Americans are Idealist. "Tho very

In this country nro excresences upon a

In Ideals and has been built upon. The
great Americans have been moral Ideal
ists. Hard senso in Franklin and Lin

Many political campaigns lmvo been
contentions over principles of almost
philosophical abstraction. Tlio civil
war was fought for Ideals. Tho south
crippled Itself valiantly, not for profit
or sordid ambition, but for devotion to
principle. Tho north fought for no ma
terial advantago, but for an ideal of
government. No Bpectaclo in history
resembles that of tho once hostllo sec

country Is full of ethical cults and

not merely by "natural resources" and
business energy, but also because, tho
people have been Idealists.

Foreign and native critics of Ameri
can II fo have by Iteration accustomed
us to regard ourselves as a commercial.
In considering tho problem of "man
ning the laud" the mistake Is common
ly made of regarding tho ipiestlon as
a matter of "hired men" entirely. That
Is, wo are asked to believe that the
land can be maiiued with agricultural
laborers. This Is certainly a mistake.
If tho problem Is to bo solved It will be
by tho creation of u class of small, Inde
pendent land owners who will do their
own work and not Imj dependent upon
hired labor. It becomes more and
more evident that tho day of the Amer
ican "hired man" Is gone. Farm labor
Is not attractive to tho young men of
to-day. The tldo flows from tho farms
to tho cities nnd thero Is no return
current. Kxcept for a certain proiHir
tlou of Kuropeaii Immigrants, tlicro Is
little or no elllux Into tho rural dis
tricts. Nor Is It at all strange that
this should ho so. Tho fanner who
owns land Is tho most Independent man
In the world, but that cannot ho said
of tho "hired man" who workB for
$1!5 a mouth "nnd found." Farm work
Is hard, tho hours are long and tho
opiwirtunltles for advancement nro
Hiuall. When land was cheap the
farmhand could, hy Industry ami thrift,
acquire a farm of his own, hut nt the
present prices of fanning lauds It
would lake a phenomenally shrewd and
saving farm laborer to become a laud
owner. The man who depends upon
luminal labor for his living can do bet
ter lu the city than lu tho country.
It Is to bo remembered, too, that farm
work Is not always to bo had all tho
year round. During the harvest seat-on
thero Is a large demand for help,
but this demand I temporary and for
ninny months of (ho year fiirm labor
ers or 'hired men" are lu smnll de
mand. This Is another reason why
young men do not go to the country.
They have a better chance for ste.uly
employment In town. In short, tho
farms are not to bo manned by hired
labor. The solution of tho problem Is
to bo found lu the creation of a great
elans of smnll. Independent land own
ers who will do their own work. In
Franco this class Is the baeklHino of
tho untloti. It will bo tho same In this
country when the American people real
ize that agriculture Is the free-it. hap

which man can engage.
