There are some questions that ev
ery farmer and Lis wife owe J t to
themselves and to their children to
sit down and tbiok over seriously.
Among them are:
How can we
manage the farm to increase its net
How can we increase its
fertility? H( mv can we educate our
children so that they will be better
able to meet the various duties and
responsibilities of life?
influence can we surround them that
will tend to give them habits of in
dustry, frugality and thrift, and de
velop them into honorable manhood
and pure, refined womanhood? How
can we add to the attractions, con
veniences and refining influences of
our homes and increase the pleas-
ures of all members of the family?
How can we manage to reduce the
hours of physical labor, leaving
mure time for the social pleasures
that other clssses of peopete enjoy,
and for the development of active,
vigorous minds, without too serious
ly curtailing the income or profits
of the farm?
Undertaking the solution of these
questions the farmer is confront
ed with the fact that he is frequent
ly not receiving ample reward for
his labor. He finds that it is not so
much the amount of work he does,
not so much his industry, not bo
much the amount of material that
is produced by bis industry that
governs his reward, but it is the
amount that is left to him after
others have taken their share tor
the haDdliog of bis product. He
comes to realize that the reason he
can not provide better education
for bis children, more attractions
and conveniences for his home and
more pleasures for all his family, is
because, in the disposul of his
products, he is unable to return for
wife and home, a fair share of what
the harvest yields. He finds many
times, of course, that his labor is
not producing what it should; he is
following wrong methods, or the fer
tility of his farm is running down.
So the great question of bow to cor
rect all these matters is always be
T o the growing boy and girl, to
the honorable young man and re
fined young lady come questions of
how they can best develop all the
latent powers of body and mind in
to vigorous health and well stored
intellect. How can they add to'the
happiness of father, mother, friends
and neighbors, and best do tbeir

The aid that has most fully met
the needs of the farming population
in solving the problem of life and
adding to the success and happiness
of life on the farm, is the helpful in
