Among the Buddhists in Japan
it is believed that the souls of
children go after death lo Stti-no-ka-varn
(the stony riverbed; and
there they remain until they reach
maturity under the care of Jizobo
satsu, who is represented a s a
priest with a long cane in one hand
and a ball in the other.
He is said to stand in the center
of the kawara, where he preaches
to the children as thev pile up
stones, one for the salvation of
their father, one for the mother,
the third for brothers, the fourth
for sisters and the fifth for their
When night comes on and the
wind blows hard a gigantic evil
spirit appears and with a huge iron
rod knocks down the heaps o f
stones which the children have
made and they are so frightened
that they run to Jizo and hide
themselves in the big sleeves of
his kimono, which have a mira
culous way of increasing in size
according to the number of chil
dren who seek refuge. Then the
evil spirit disappears and the chil
dren begin again the work of heap
ing up stones.
Passing through cemeteries in
Japan one sees tombs that have
tlie image of Jizo carved upon them,
as the parents take that way of
gaining the special favor of Jizo
for their children, and one will

by the parents and brothers and
sisters of the children with tho
hope of helping i n the tedious
work of the little ones in the ka

"We are learning," says Dr.
Grossman, that all the so-called
naughtinesses of children may be
merely danger signals indicating
disturbance somewhere." Usually,
we must admit, they indicate dis
turbance in the equilibrium of the
teacher or defect in their methods.
If young teachers would remember
this fact they would be slower to
punish, more diligent in searching
for the cause of trouble rather than

them is desire. Desire is the main
spring o f action, the fundamen

is practically to control desire.

feet human being perfection in
mind, body, and character, The
potential utility of such a being is
immeasurable. Hence the education
of the individual human being is
the highest of the vital arts,
3. A beautiful home, actually
existing, is grander than the
picture of such a home, or a liter
ary description of it, and she who
creates that home is greater than
poet or painter.
4. Activity is the dynamic prin
cipal of life. It is therefore the
fundamental fact in education.
5. After all is said about the de
fects of teachers, their lack of pre
paration, etc., the fundamental
difficulty with modern education
is the lack of public interest in
this great art whose possibilities
are as yet, but dimly perceived.
