Although the farm keeps the
balance of trade in tbs nation’s
favor, furnishes two-thirds of
our exports, contributes to our
manufacturing supremacy by
providing cheap foo l for our me
chanics. comparatively little has
been done toward educating the
farmer for his work. To be
sure, the Doited Htutes lm dons
more foe him tban any other
country. In 1H62, Congress an.
dowed agricultural collie* to
Umch the sciences relating to
agriculture. In 1867, experi
ment station# were provided for
where research might be mode
into the operatloug of nature.
But cunskleflng the Ameri
cane psyVnore pioney for public
education than any other people
on emih, a comparatively small
proportion of tbs sum is devoted
to stimulating and aiding that
half our population who caiti
rats the soil. The tendency of
of primary education has been
to lead the country youth away
from the farm instead of helping
him in the study of thorn ocienoee
relating tbs production. It
would be politic and patriotic
to incorporate into the farms
youth’s education tome know
ledge that shall bear more di
rectly upou hit future life and
