Women as Farmers.
"Well, why shouldn't farmers' girls
study agriculture? Is there any good
reason why tho state should provide for
the education of tho farmers' boys and
allow tho girls to get their training
wherever they can? Wouldn't it be a
good th'ng to introduce coeducation at

Theao questions may have been raised
before now, but we do not think that
they have been adequately discussed.
Perhaps there- has not been sufficient
demand on tho part of tho country girls
for an agricultural education. It may bo
that they aro too desirous to leave tho
farm to 'think of preparing themselves
for woman's work on the farm.
