tional land grant act was passed by
congress and provision made for ag
ricultural colleges in the states. But
no experiment station system was in
working order until the present sys-
tem was established by congress in
1887. At the close of the last century
agricultural societies advocated this
system but it was killed by the farm-
ers themselves. Neither this nor any
of the other reforms in agricultural
education were begun by farmers save
one. That was the agricultural ex-
The reason the Agricultural College
was not combined with University was
not animosity to the university, but it
was due to the fact tnat the college
was the culmination of a long protest
against the old system of education.
To have united the college with tho
,niversity would have been consid-
ered a complete concession on this
point, and hence the two institutions
were kept separate and distinct. But
that plea would not be made today as
the university has thoroughly demon
strated that it is in sympathy with
the work of the college and could well
conduct its work. The fact that they
developed away from their first aim is
the reason of toe establishment of the
short courses and of the extension
movement and intermediate agricul-
tural training scuools.
What have agricultural colleges
They have raised the whole tone of
the farming community until it stands
away from that of 25 years ago. We
must establish intermediate agricul-
tural schools between the highsschools
and the agricultural colleges. We
don't need more agricultural colleges,
but we do need more intermediate
schools ant more agricultural high
schools. At present te only one is at
St. Anthony, Minn. The farmer must
now be educated whether he will or
no. And if he will not be he must be.
The farmer is most difficult to reach
in education, not because he is unwil-
ling, -tut ie will not congregate in
educational centers. So the Univer-
sity extension finds its mission. If
the'farmer will not go to college, take
the college to him, to everyone's door.
We would not have every man go to
college but every man must be
awakened and have his horizon
w,dened. The effort is now beini
made to reach out and get the indi-
vidual farmer, and the time is now at
hand when toe influence of an agri-
cultural college will not be measured
by the number of graduates it turns
out but by the number of people it
The coming type of agricultura
awakening is coming with the agricul-
tural extension movement. Cornell
is now in its fifth year of this work.
Reading clubs and nature study clubs
among children have been organized
The purpose of these is to put every
one tns a proper attitude of mind. A
simmer school for teachers has also
been established. The teachers ar
here prepared to take up the teaching
of value studies with better success.

Milton E. Thompson, head of te
Thompson-Ryan electric company, has
been here the last few days to superin-
tend the placing of a new commutator
upon one of the University dynamos.
Trouble had been experienced because of
excessive sparking upon the commuta-
tor, greatly impairing its efficiency. Mr.
Thompson found this due to defective
connections in the armature. During
the repairs the other dynamo has car-
ried the entire load, sometimes 5o0 er
cent in excess of its rated capacity. To
relieve the strain a great many lights
have been shut down ear ethis past
week. Exercises in the gymnasium
ceased one hour earlier than usual. The
repairs have been completed and the
dynamo will soon be in position again.
Mr. Thompson pronounces the Univer-
sity plant a model of its kind.
