tho fund of good humor by "lambent
flashes" of wtt and tho beautiful, gra
cious charm of an Oliver Goldsmith or
a Mark Twain, It Is nevertheless with
in tho power of all to tako a cheerful
view of things and to cultivate our own
good humor. Our temperamenta aro
umdo for us, but our habits are of our
own making. And good humor and
cheerfulness are largely habits. A
cheerful framo of mind cornea with a
desire and determination to be cheer

cultivates the cheerful habit will find

hU cheerfulness and good humor add
to the happiness of others.

I'rof. L. II. Ilalley, director of the
Cornell University's agricultural de
partment, has been discussing tho ques
tion of the cityward drift of farm boys,
OHpcclally of boya who go to college,
and his views are hopeful and encour
aging. Ho Is certain that In the neat
future there will bo 1111 excellent under
standing and cordial co-operation be
tween tho farm and tho college, not
withstanding certain present tendencies
which ho regrets. An Idontlcal letter of
inquiry to Cornell students born and
bred on farms or In rural sections
brought I'rof, Ilalley Interesting data,
which he Mimmnrlzes In the Century.
One hundred and fifty-five students ad
uiltted that they wero leaving the farm,
and gave their reasons for the decision.
These reasons are groupod under four
heads, as follows: Financial rewards,
physical labor, noclal and Intellectual
interests, miscellaneous dUtlcultlo and
handicaps on tho farm. Many of the
students thought tho fanner had no op
portunity either for political distinction
or for social, humanitarian service. Fif
teen expected to return to tho farm In
the course of time, after 11 successful
c.ireer In the city In business or tho pro
fessions. I'rof. Ilalley Is not surprised
at tho fascination exercised by the
great cities, with their wealth, their In
tense life, their lullnlto varloty, their
social und iKilltlcal organisations, tholr
amusements and artistic and Intellec
tual attractions. Hut he believe that a
reaction Is In course of preparation.
Great fortunes made In trado and com
merce have a dar.illng effect, but many
of the ambitious youths soon discover
that It 1 Imposslbln for evory one to
got rich, and tiro professions are noto
riously overcrowded. Yale proposes to
make Its law school a post-graduate
kchool and admit no ono without a col
lege degree, and the suggestion Is gen
erally commended on the ground that
already there are too many lawyers In
the country. Most physicians, archi
tects, literary men, artists say tho name
thing about their vocations. Tho farm
holds out no promise of groat wealth,
but It Insures mental peace, comfort
mid reasonable prosperity when proper
ly and practically managed. Bo far a
rural Isolation Is concerned, It Is surely
becoming a thing of the past, as Prof.
Pulley has pointed out In a commence
ment address. With tho ubiquitous trol
ley, the autocar, the telephone, tho free
delivery system, the construction of
new railways, and we mny add the
automatic piano players ami other mu
sical Instruments who can Justly say
the farm means dull monotony and Iso
lation? The farm needs tho college,
but It can In turn do much for the ed
ucated youth seeking opportunities. The
city will llnd the form more and more
of n competitor with college men.
