Some boys are forced to measure tape

better farmers than merchants. Some
young men graduate from medical
oolleges and then poor drugs of which
they know little into bodies of which
they know less. Such young men

the sledge hammer thau using the

idea of a call to preach the gospel
when their long and tiresome sermons
arc suttlcieut evidence that they ought
to plow corn.

We want every high school graduate
