' The retiring secretary shows just one faint glimmer

take the stump to oppose Wilson. To do so would be to
double the measure of his foolishness and childishness.
Just why a man who has served in solitary confine

States should seek to be resentenced to another four year
term is one of the things that will never be known. Not
since the days of Calhoun has a vice president been re

upon as delinquent in their filial duty.
The requirements for an education
are becoming greater every day, and
more and more is In-ing added to the
long list of things to be learned, till it
is becoming a grave question, "what
is the best method to follow to acquire
e in a
given time?'
It used to be thought that when one
graduated from high school they had
completed their education, but now a
farmer id up against it if he does not
study continuously. There is no end to
our education. For every new thing we
learn 10 more are brought to our no
lice that ne feel we ought to know.
It is just as important for the farm
er to study out the proper methods to
follow by which to learn as it is to be
come inspired with the incentive to
leatn. It is just as possible' to learn
what you want to know in half the
time, if you go at it in the proper man
ner, as it is for one mnn to split up
two blocks of wood while another is
splitting one because lie knows the bet
ter how to go about it.
One day I went through a poultry
show with a certain farmer. We look
ed at every coop of birds in the build

great many of the birds on exhibit.
There was a raponizing clinic but we
didn't stop for that.
The next day I went through the
same show with another farmer. At the
very first coops we met the owner,
nnd the farmer began asking all manner
of questions. "Were thev hatched in
an incubator? What did he feed them
when thev were small? What did it
cost to raise them fwm the time thev
were hatched toill they began to lav'
