In the Memphis Democrat of
April 23, we read repprt of pro
ceedintfs of Mernplds Literary
Society for April/lBth. What
appealed to us with greatest
force was the subject of debate,
viz, “Resolved: That Public edu
cation should be made compul-
sory for all children up to the
age of fourteen years.” We
were glad to note that the judges
decided in the affirmative. We
wish that the same subject might
be discussed to tv “frazzle” in
every school district in the state
and that the legislature might
enact a law making it obligatory
on the part of pareuts and guard
ians to send children under the
age named. After the expendi-
ture of the vast amountfof money
that has been lavished upon our
educational interests, it is a
burning shame, that children
and especially boys, should be,
allowed to shirk the opportuni-
ties provided them for becoming
useful and honored citizens. We
would note a few of the reasons
for non-attendance, where atten.
dance is left to the discretion of
those who should have control.
Many are kept at home because
of the help they can be to their
parents. la cases of large and
poverty stricken families, this
comes nearest being a justifiable
excuse, yet when summed up it
is receiving . temporary shekels
for future manhoods and woman-
hood, usefulness and happiness,
and not to them alone but to pos
terity as well, for every teacher
should have observed that it is
far less difficult to interest and
instruct children of educated,
and mentally developed parents
than those of the illiterate. Then
there are those parents whq are
indifferent as to their childrens
mental acquirements because
they, the parents, have succeed-
ed with but a limited knowledge
of the three"R’s. This may be
true from a financial standpoint
but to the broad-minded, with a
ourning desire to make the mas1
>f life’s opportunities, dollars
and cents become secondary in
importance. Besides tif monej
is the goal of our aims, educa-
tion enables us to seek* it along
honesty lines and proper chan-
nels, while the ignorant lacking
mental and moral qualities are
often led to acquire it by dishon
est and vicious methods.
Lastly, we would refer to the
oue that is least justifiable and
productive of most harm, viz:
that of allowing children to re
main at home because they “do
not like the teacher.” The teach
er whom they don’t like is very
apt to be one who is putting
forth his or her best efforts to
see that the child acquires that
for which the schools are design-
ed. But because they can not
have the very same lRuvriiog-
at school that they have at home,
which in many cases amounts to
but little short of license, they
go home and tell pa and ma, who
listen with wide open ears to the
story of their “infallible” son,
and he is told “Johnny you need
not go if you do not want to, you
can stay at home arid help ma“
ind lie nelps her by indulging in
mind enfeebling,games, reading
fcrashey literature and schooling
himself along with other boys of
the same brand, in vice and thus
become the antipode of that for
which our school system was
• rented. The teacher can tell
by the deportment of the child
what the home training isr and
whether or not they are taught
to be submissive “to the powers
that be.” The unbridled colt
nevar become a useful -work-
A Trip to the Alley Well
Through the courtesy of Mr.
R. A. Hale of Webb Hotel we
were taken to the beautiful home
of Robert Alley. We found him
at his irrigating well operating
the machinery of his plant. The
well is 54 ft. to water and has a
depth of 125 ft. The pump is 8
ft. below' the surface of water,
with a suction pipe 32 ft. in
length, extending from pump
down into the well. His pump
raises from 1200 to 1500 gallons
per rriinute and is sufficient to
irrigate one A. per hour, at a
cost of not to exceed 75c per
acre, aM expenses included. He
expects to water 100 acres from
this well" Hi* crop this season
will consist of maize, kaffir corn,
alfalfa, cotton w heat and truck.
At present he is conducting the
w’ater direct from well to field,
but expects to tiill a reservoir,
of two million gallons capacity,
from which he can draw hurried-
ly should exigencies of conditions
require. Pish will also be kept
in this reservoir. He has a plow
with 18 discs with which he can
plow 30 Ingres in 10 hours.
Most of his crop this year will
be put in silos, which will be in
a barn 100x70ft thereby suffer
ing no loss from outside expos
ure. Last year Mr. Alley raised
127 bu. of milo maize to the acre
and won a prize in the state con-
test. He cut his alfalfa 0 times
and some cuttings made a ton to
the cutting, while one acre made
1 3-4 ton and won the prize in
the state contest. The irrigated
wheat last year yielded 40 bu.
per acre with but one watering,
We should have said in proper
connection that he will water the
kaffir and maize but twice and
alfalfa after each cutting. He is
expending money and time in
civic improvident and not long
ue wiii have one of the most at-
tractive homes on the plains.

A New York politician, in
writing a letter of condolence to
the widow of a late member of
the legislature, said:
“I can not tell yon how pained
F was to hear that your husband
had gone 4o heaven.—We were
bosom friends, but now we shall
never meet again.”—Life.
“Don’t you ever find it hard to
be a freak?” asked the stoutish,
tightly lightly laced woman who
had stopped to converse with the
7A ——r—-; ■
“No, not a bit,” was the reply.
“I often feel sorry for some of
you people who seem to find it
so hard not to be freaks.”
