State schools are, so far as mental training
and the acquisition of knowledge go, vastly su
perior to either church schools or private schools.
I'rlvato and church schools tend to breed caste
nnd division among the children of the com
munity. The public school, on the other hand,
Is the mirror of the republic. In the public
schools of a town you have the purest democ
racy In" the world. When we look at hard facts.
we see that It Is folly to blame the schools for defects of
blood, lapses of virtue nnd blight of character, which
neither our laws nor our policy requires the schools to
combat You must blame the church, you must blame the
offenders, you must blame yourselves, when your children
become the victims of Intemperance, vice or Impiety.

A Farmer's Daughter:
What She Can Do.
Iu a paper read before the thirteenth
annual convention of the Indiana State
Dairy Association, Miss lvdltb Parsons,
student lu Purduo University, gave
an Interesting account of her experi
ence lu dairying. Miss Parsons began
with the three or four cows kent to
supply their own family, and Is now
selling the product of between fifteen
and twenty cows at a profitable price,
ccuuse of Its uniform excellence and
regularity of supply.
After recounting her dlfllcultles lu
getting a good herd, she said: "After
you decide to begin dairying, the ques
tion arises: Who shall care for the
milk and the butter? Shalt it be the
farmer and his sons who toll In the
fluid all day, or shall It be the tired
mother and' wife who shall do this
work, thinking It one of her many
dntles, Instead of a source of pleasure
to her? No!

farmer's daughter who should come
forward and saj-, I am young and
know that I would enjoy taking full
charge of tho dairy work How proud
I will feel to think that I am making
