The fair to a cfty man Is an entertainment to a farmer it is education. Let us take a stroll through the fair grounds and linger a moment at a few of the'pointB of greatest interest We will first visit the mechanical department and hold communion with the world's .greatest thinkers. , , w. ? You are now attending a congress of the mental giants in mechanical sci ence of all ages. They are addressing you in tongues of iron and Bteel and in language mute and powerful tell an eloquent Btory of the world's progress. The Inventive geniuses are the most valuable farm hands we have and they perform an enduring service to mankind. We can all help others for a brief period while we live, but it takes a master mind to tower into the realm of science and light a torch of progress that will illuminate the path way of civilization for future genera tions. The men who gave us the sickle, the binder, the cotton gin and hundreds of other valuable inventions work in every field on earth and will continue their labors as long as time. Their bright intellects have conquered death and they will live and serve mankind on and on forever, without money and without price. They have shown us how grand and noble it la to work for others; they have also taught us lessons In economy and effi ciency, how to make one hour do the work of two or more; have length ened our lives, multiplied , our opportunities and taken toil off the back of humanity. They are the moat practical men the world ever produced. Their In ventions have stood the ac'd test of utility and efficiency, like all useful men, they do not seek publicity, yet millions, of machines sing their praises from every harvest field on earth aud as many plows turn the soil in mute applause of their marvelous achieve ments. RURAL SOCIAL CENTERS We need social centers where our young people can be entertained, amused and instructed under the di rection of cultured, clean and com petent leadership, where aesthetio surroundings stir the love for the beautiful, where art charges the at mosphere with inspiration and. power, and Innocent amusements instruct and brighten their lives. To hold our young people on the farm we must make farm life more attractive as well as the business of farming more remunerative. . The school house should be the social unit, I properly equipped for nourishing and building character, so that the lives of our people can properly function around it and become supplied with the necessary elements oi human thought and activity.
