FA8UINS FOR BOYS. Some time ago, the Government of Wes- tern Australia initiated a scheme for placing boys on farms within the State, in order that they might have the most practical kind 01 training in the years before they are ready to take up land for themselves. The farmers shewed considera ble eagerness in securing the services of the boys, and last year the Govern- ment had applications for 600, of which num- ber only 339 could be supplied. The Govern- ment keeps in close touch with all boys sent, and receive piles of letters shewing that both they and the farmers are pleased with the scheme. The Colonial Secretary, the Hon. H. F. Colebatch, recently remarked: Some parents may think their boys too clever or too well educated for farm work. This is a mis- take.
