It is the interest that we take in our work that, saves us from the mill-stone of drudgery. The man who is working out his plans does not weary of his labour in the same way as though he were working blindly on with no object in sight. There is a lesson here for all fathers. Let the boys all help in the planning of the farm* work. Talk matters over. It may often be a matter of surprise how valuable their advice may be. At any rate, the average boy will find more interest in his work when he knows what is ahead than if he simply had his tasks set for him as though he were a mere hired servant. We have seen otherwise good families go to pieces because there seemed to be no point of sympathy between the father and sons. The plan in the father's mind may have been good and even kind, but the boys did not know what it. was, and they rebelled against always submitting themselves to merely- taking orders.—" Nor' West Parmer."
