And even after the day is done and the veil of night has wrapped the world in darkness, farm life still sheds her blessings, for, with no other noise to hinder, she, with whispering breezes and murmuring winds, rocks you into peaceful slumber. "SWENSON ON THE FARM" . A • Could we see ourselves as others see us We might profit by this experience. Could we judge ourselves as others would judge us We would not he so disappointed in ourselves. Could we govern ourselves from the standpoint of others The world would progress toward the divine. Two ho tidied Jive

surrounded on all sides by Great Dame Nature pointing with her index finger to the path that leads aright he helps to solve the problems of mankind and fix the destinies of nations. To him the hum of a hinder on a hot July day is hut music to his soul, and the “swish, swish” of the bundles, as he shocks them in the field, is hut the audible voice of nature as she says, “Reward of Merit.” And the farmer’s wife and daughters! Do they share equally in all these blessings? From their windows they, too, can hear the music of the hinder, also see all the beauty of God's great handiworks. As to the educational advantages of the farm, the studies in the farm life curriculum cannot he named or catalogued, neither can their students he graded on the scale of 100 per cent. It is something intangible, can only he felt, hut never seen, and only those who read its pages have a right to he a witness. Hence the reason why farm-reared and farm-educated hoys are so often made a living example of what farm life and farm education does. They are graded on the scale of too. on the basis of prescribed studies and conventionality, and given no credit whatever for that subtle knowledge learned out under the open sky. Beware of that young philosopher of the farm! He may not he able to quote Shakespeare or verses from the Iliad, hut he hears at first hand the songs of nature, which poets have idealized in verse, and he is often more logical than appearances would favorably warrant. The country schools may he made a laughing stock, .their results be treated with indifference, and yet their memories will ever he dear. Nothing can take away the love of the memory of that old schoolhouse in District No. 7. he criticisms what they will. Where is there a more delightful remembrance than that of those Friday afternoons in a district school? Who will ever forget Polly’s recitation. “Kinds friends and parents, we welcome you here”: Pete Jones’s composition on "The Hen”: the debate, “Resolved, that fire is more dangerous than water”; or Dick Brown’s recitation. “The Flag, the flag, the wondrous flag.” Crude and almost uncanny in delivery might he said, hut one thing is sure, it was their own. They displayed their own individuality in its rendition. Individually is an unconscious watchword of farm life and country schools. The farm not only furnishes the clay, it also produces the model wherewith and whereby the sculptor may fashion his statue of Individuality. As to the amusements and entertainments of farm life, here arc scenes, the paintings of which have moved men’s souls. Here are babbling brooks and sighing winds, the sonnets of which have lived through ages. But here, too, are feelings of solitude, of meditations in which man walks hand in hand and human genius have failed utterly to portray. Here are the teachers of Jenny Lind and Madame Nordica. for it may well he their highest ambition to warble like the lark. as. at the first streak of the morning, he soars up to meet the dawn. Here you need not go to the theatre to see the shifting scenes upon the stage, for here they are in all their splendor—glorious sunsets, vivid lightnings against black and inky skies, starlit nights with the moon peeping through the foliage, and waving fields of grain which as you watch it is the very poetry of motion.

THE SENIOR PLAY The Seniors have selected as their class play one which they believe will be not only fascinating, but instructive,—Joan of Arc. Being based upon historical events, it cannot fail to appeal to the student. The maidenly modesty and undaunted courage of the heroine, as she leads the army to victory for her King and her country, her unwavering faith as she meets her cruel death, will undoubtedly fill all who behold it with admiration and loftier purpose. The military character of the play makes the setting very attractive, and will inspire that feeling of patriotism which all feel when in the presence of great and noble deeds. Many difficulties arise in its presentation, but we believe that the seniors, with their pcrscrverance and ingenuity, will overcome these difficulties and make it one of the most brilliant successes of the year.

Joan enters, going to the shrine to hang up a wreath of flowers. The peasants arc roused to fury by news that the English and their allies arc devastating the next town, and fly to arms. Joan recalls the noble deeds of women in Jewish times, and feels the inspiration of grand deeds springing up in her bosom. Then in terms of simple but burning eloquence she tells the priest, De La Pierre, of the glorious visions she has beheld. At first the priest thinks her exaltations arc the outcome of insanity: but when he recalls the purity of her life and her piety, he gives her his blessing, La Hire, a soldier of Two hundred six
