This means that they must sometime strike out for themselves eral acceptance Just so It Is with It is a natural impulse for this that sometimes leads them to run every new thing Some time ago a away from homo or to elope and get married before they ought to college education was considered a The best way for a young person to begin to be independent is luxury for the rich Today most pro ¬ to leave homo for a good school There they are left to look after fessional men many farmers and themselves but havo the influence of teachers and the occupation of business men of all kinds feel that ftiher education Is useful in their If they did not learn a thing it would still be better for then to lives The lawyer and the doctor professional training have without have this experience of going

womanhood for at that time they make the choices and take the courses which show what they will be thru their after life at twenty every one can tell whether a young man or woman will be good or bada success or a failure happy or miserable It is to young people at that age that this editorial is directedwe wish to suggest to them a few thoughts againWhat growing better or worse r Are you learning or not r Are you suc ceeding or falling If you are not getting all that you desire in the way of success and happiness uow Is the time to do something about it before it Is too late and when the effects of any effort you make may be felt thru your whole life ¬ personDut which have been given you whether or net you make the most of them and especially whether or not you develop them andmake the most you can out of them This latter thing is what we want to talk to you about Are you doing all you can to make your talents as good as posaihloin other words are you getting all the education you can use f Aside from tho character of a man and his natural brains there Is nothing about him so important as his education No matter how smart ho is an education will make him able to use his brains better no matter how dull he is an education will help him And it is a fact that almost any man with an education is a better man ¬ whohave no one of importance who baa not had at least the full school educa ¬ tion and history proves that a man has about two hundred times as good a chance to become successful if he has a full college education In the face of figures like that it is no use to argue that nn education does not pay The chance to take hold of the great power of educatiou and make a success of yourself is one that comes to every young mad or woman at this time It will cost money and time and hard work giveincreased the years that you may live Many a young fellow has been scared out by the few little sacrifices which are called for at the startand has afterward seen the duller slower poorer boy get ahead of him in life because that boy was not afraid to make the sacrificeswaswilling to pay tho price of an education and the bigger success that it bringsEvery Continued thing good must be paid for in this life and an education is one of the best things there is It must be paid for too but it more than repays any one who is willing to make the sacrifice How about it young mon or woman are you willing to work a little harder to live a little plainer to sacrifice a little now for a few years so that you can haye all the higher success and greater happi ¬ neas that comes from an education f Or is the price too high for you to payf Aro you going to make all you can out of yourself or are you going to fail because of cowardice and laziness r You can have an education you can be a success and be happy if you will pay the price And all that the price calls for is the use of a youhave The closing article on tho sheep scab comes this week too Dont tail to read It for the stamping oat ot this disease will mean thousands of dollars to the farmers of Kentucky Another Interesting article on fires has had to be put over till next week We have kept postponing it but it la only because of the number of good things from which we have to choose Look for It next week Francis O Clark has retunred from Cornell where he has learned the latest and best

watch ¬ ing the scientific reports of scientific farming took a thorough training in this work Last year he put out his first potato crop TJw farmers watch ¬ ed him and discussed his methods as they did the horse rake When he gathered his crop it was found he had produced more on four acres than his neighbor on a field of more than twice that size Today some ot his half hearted neighbors are thinking of taking one term In some agricul ¬ tural college Of course the one terns Will help some Just so it Is with boys and girls In all lines of work they are beginning to realize that tho old ways of doing things are los ¬ ing ground and that they must get In touch with new ways They are half converted to the new as the Bible says they are luke warm This taking an occasional term away at school is better than not going at all but ft is very poor substitute for taking a regular course The excuse usually given for not taking a regular course and entering school at the beginning of the fall term Is cannot afford It Now tho real cause in most cases Is not seeing clearly the benefits to be derived from such a course It you think this statement not correct read tho article written by Prof James of Harvard in the American Magazine on tho Powers of Men This article appears In the October or November Issue of 1907I wish to say right here thAta complete year from tho first day of the
