How mucli is a day at school
worth to a boy? . Perhaps the
boy himself has never figured
it up. Often, indeed,, he
thinks it would pay him bet
ter if he could quit school and
go to work. Hut lately a
West Virginia man has worked
out the matter on a cash basis
and given us the result, which
every boy in the United States
ought to know md think over
if he wants , to be the most
valuable man posibI
, . TheWest, Vi rginia man be
gins by this fundamental
axiom: "You find the value
of a boy's time at school by
subtracting the earnings of a
life of uneducated labor."
ThatV entirely clear and
obviously true, isn't it, boys?
Then he go to calculate the
eanings of umducatcd labor
at one doliarand fifty cents a
day for three hundred days in
the year; a liberal estimate,
of coarse, because many at
laborers only earn a dollar a
day. But at his hiph estimate
and supposing that the un
educated worker has steady
employment forty years, he
will earn in that time one
dollar and a half multiplied
by three hundred multiplied
by forty, or eighteen thousand
