Uoiiul Disadvantages of 1'iotuibr
Oliililrcn ,
Bui it HoeniB to mo , that the ad-
vaiUagea gamed through the wiae
education of children , whatever
at tl urn or opportunities in life , tuu
so very IIUIULTOHB uud reasonable
thai they aifj 01 should lie uppre-
ciutiid by alt.
Education is , we nitU' bay , a word
synonymous wil'h oivilmaliou : it is
at leant a pcitnnt laulor in produc
lug the energy inltlliijenco and re--
tiuemenl f-o nucesHiivy lc high oivili-
aalion. U IH the science of human
culture , and the art of Ircming Urn
faculliea of man to their bunt uses
und tboir highest romi'ls. ' By U
the > oung are prepared 'to lullill
their duties in omlizud life and by
ptoptM1 development of iho mind
and boaltby growth of the body , to
become useful and important in
their oommunilies having senau of
liiVa responsibilities.
Wo aru apt to &eo only the die-
advantages which invariably Hl.uid
in tliu way of pioneer children al-
U'lnpling to secure an education.
They may seem over to outweigh
the advantages derived from imch
labor. But all things idiould bowen
won by oarneet eil'ort , ai'd 1 believe
that tlu person wlio in youth haste
to cotitond more or lot's with advor-
nity in strengthened thereby , and
bettor prepared for thu bittlo of
life , than bin soomiugly mor far-
lunalu brother who has been reuied
n the ! t\p of luxury , enjoying eve y
)08tiniblo opportunity in ihu way ol
it is not true , that wo value the
prize according to the Hlruggio ?
Especially should patuntH roahzo
the value of this. By si-ning de
fects in their own training duo possibly -
sibly to lack C'f proper education ,
they hhould endeavor to HO train
the child'ri mind and bung ; such in
fluence in Iheii IIVCN that ihoy uu
q'liru ' an atlinity ( or learning , indua
try , and , education in itn fullest
souse , that in , being practical aud
the poanefsor of good , common
nenae and the ability of using it
In this way they are made lo real-
i lhal there are possibilities for
them , that no obstacle HO unsur-
nountablo , no diliicully HO great
that it cannot be overcome.
How many children grow up in
in atmosphere of ig-ioianco where
they do not know , have never seen
ind cannot appter.rlo good litera
ture ! They know nothing beyond
liard daily labor. Tina is very
commendable , Una industry and
energy which as a rule characterize
the children laboring people. But
we Hhould hot ho extremists. We
should combine our physical hbor
wiln a proper development of Ihe
mind. It ha ? been said that , "The
rioul ia planed in the body hlcu a
roi'gh ' diamond , and must bu polish
ed or the luster of it will never sip-
pear and it ia manifest that an the
national aoul diHtirrguiflhus us from
brutcN , so education earrieii on that
dihtinetion , and make * Htmo IO.H
bullish than others. "
{ 301110 may Bay , "Oh yes , educa
tion is all righl , but wo bohovu in
.saving the dimes and dollars in in *
creasing our poasepKioiiH. Our
ohildrou can be. of more IIHO to us
in our hurd loll , than lo ha spend
ing our hard earned money on auch ,
high flown , nonsensical notions. "
But right hero ia where ho many
have a miatakrn idea. No one of
us , I hope , admire the frivolous and
shallow minda of society , who HO
like to impress their green country
cousins with their great mental
superiority. "All ia not gold tint
glitlerfl , " and fiuiely iheso exemplify
that oft qiu-ted truth. They arn
not the educators of our land today.
IH it because they have no oppor
tunities in the the way of educa
tion ? The high nohool , nuadr-my ,
college Ihoy have free access to ,
and they are able to take advantage
ol their privilege , but disdain that
which is proffered them.
It fipfiina that human nature ia so
constituted that , that which hea
within our grasp and can be BO
easily obtained , ia rejected its a
thing of no-value. Wo value wealth
and life t > e' > ms to bu one great
Htruirglo for it. But imagine a
person in the midst of wealth , gold
lying in abundance about ; he has
but to lake it ami gratify every
wish , every whim I DOOM ho value
the dollar aH wo do ? No hn cannot
realise , cannot appreciate it.
U in the 8-unu in the matter of
education. How many fail to see
and use the golden opportunity !
Suppose two children in your
minds oye. Plaoo them Hide by
bide. It will emphasize the con
trast. One the pampered child of
wnalth , the other a pioneer child of
the prairies and srd houses. One
NeeniH completely at a IONH as com
pared with the other. Ytt follow
their life history. One a life ol
pleasure , the ether : i series of Htrug-
plort against adversity some now
dittioully continually confronting
him. If he has the ambition and
perseverance , if ho has implanted
in his mind \ho value of learning ,
ho will overcome thrm. "livery
hill wo climb in attaining an educa
tion makes us stronger for the
This pioneer child advantages
wo all know how limited they nre.
Ho bet inH school ia the little sod
sohool house with its \\ooden
benches and few books ; poHaibly
walks or drives two or three or
mnro miles , in all kindu of weather
when not obliged , to I remain at
homo to labor. Ho finishes the
country pohool. There is a senae
of unsatmfaction with himself he
has not enough knowledge. So he
delves away gathering bits of learn
ing from every possible source ,
until some day , it may take IOMK
years but the time will oomo when
he will have reached tlo ) goal , and
he is ready for hfe'd work and re
Jlut where is his companion , the
wealthy child who is raised prob
ably , in the onator Htato or city , .lias
dit-da'tiod education , has likely
wearied of the labor of study and
dropu it for the more congenial
booioty of pleauuroloviim people
( irndually his ambitions disttapponi
and at , last are swallowed by the
infatuation for gaiety and fast liv
ing. Ho now stands at a great dis
advantage fin compared with the
pioneer child. Ono senteifo ex-
piert-en it. One him failed oven to
take advantage of his advantage ,
the other lias taken advantage of
IUH disadvantage. .
Were the people as a class more
educated , wealth would not rnlo so
completely as it ( iflen docn. Think
of KiiHKia's ignorant millions and
how they are kept under opproHsion
by a tyrannical rule. America's
common classes are educating them
selves and hence their greater free
dom. And even hero in our own
countiy conditions mig'ut bo great
ly improved. Our greatest men
have been of most humble origin
and it wan through their pluck and
perseverance that they stand today
before I ho world as men to bo re
spected , honored and are indeed
worthy patterns for we pioneers
who realixo what adversity is.
Education is not merely some
thing to bo gained through the use
of books , but by a proper study of
them , they will open our eyes and
mind to what was unappreciable bo
fore. Perhaps all will not
collude , master the hard languages ,
the intricacies of higher mathema
tics. But all can obinin a good
practical education , which in much
the rohtilt of intelligouco and ex
periences we muet with in every
walk of life.
And that is where the pioneer
has the oppottunity of gaining
strength through his poor opptunU
ties. Again I repeat , thia fact
would I emphasize , that the great
educational advantage of pioneei
children , uonsiuta it > the over com
ing of the many disadvantage * .
