CWNTY SCHOOL NOTES

Every new treasurer elected this
year should send in his bond to the
County Clerk. The director hns the
blank form in his directors supplies
and should see that the new treasurer
has it to fill out. This is a matter
of law and business and is in no way
a slight to one's honor.
The last teachers' examination of
the year will be given August 3-4 at
Red Cloud only.
Teachers' certificates 'will not 'be
made out without they are .called for.
As the laws are now you will not
want your certificate unless1 you have
your school. I will not take tho le

FARM BUREAU NOTES
(By County Extonsion Agent, Henry
WHY FARM BOYS SUCCEED
Several months ago William Grant
Edens of Chicago, while on a bank
erjs tour of Nebraska, told the group
meetings that the immense majority
of the men who were swaying the fi
nancial destinies of the world, came
from farm homes and villages.
In corroboration of this statement,
a writer in the Philadelphia North
American calls attention to the fact
that with the exception of the inherit
ed fortunes invested in business in
Boston, Philadelphia and New York,
Americas great bankers and finan
ciers are almost without exception
There is a reason for this which
may be summed up as follows: The
farm youth brings to the city a whole
some home training and a vigorous,
uncorrupted manhood. He has not
frittered away his energies but enters
the great arena of competive business
with a zest, an enthusiasm unknown
to the world-weary, satisfied city boy
to whom the greatest things in the
world's accomplishments have become
commonplace by everyday familiarity.
riity years ago. California furnish
ed the men dominating the finances of
this country. From tho fresh, keen
life of the Pacific coast came the
rugged physical and intellectual
giants who made Commodoie Vnnder-
bilt look to his laurels. These men
today are coming from the American
farm. A loster of their names with
the story of their deeds would make
a fascinating page in history. Some
day it will lie wiitten not to prove
that the farm is tho field of lestiict
cd deeds and intellectual poverty but
to show whut can bo accomplished
when manhood gets the right stait
in the right envaonment.
