when her earnest desires lsto

which their sense of justice shows
them is eleservcd. They only ask
fair play for themselves anel for
others. Tho teacher who inspires
her pupils with confide'iice in her
motive will have little trouble in
controlling them. Children shesulel
be taught to refrain from disorder,,
not because they fear ropresof or
punishment, but berauso they arc
willing to eleny themselves for tho
good esf others, because' they desires
the' teacher's approval, anel that of
their own conse-ience'.
