WEDNESDAY EV'O, MARCH. 15,1871.
The question which agitates the London
school board, whnso decision will probably
be acted upon throughout tho provinces, is
whether, under the new system, education
shall be made compulsory, as it is in Ger
many. The last statistical returns show
that out of every five grown-up persons
In England ono is without education, so
far as measured by the test of writing
The act of 1870 (33 Victoria, chap. 75)
was passed to "provide for every school
district a sufficient amount of accommoda
tion in public elementary schools available
for all tho children resident in such dis
trict, for whose elementary education
efficient and suitablo provision is not oth
It Is further enacted th.it all children at
tending theso public elomentary schools,
"whoso parents are unable, from poverty,
to pay anything towards their oducation,
shall be admitted free, the expenses so in
curred to be discharged from local rates."
The school board in each district is in
vested with great powers, among others
that of making it compulsory upon parents
to give all children between the ages of
five and thirteen the advantago of educa
tion. It is absord on the face of it to send I
a child only five years old to a public
school; up to eight, home instruction
ought to be sufficient. It is still undecided
by tho London school board whether it
shall exercise its power of enforcing the |
education of all children.
This is objected to, by a few members
of the board, on tho plea that compulsion
is "un-English;" a plea of tho feeblest
character, seeing that it has generally been j
used, across tho water, to assail some good I
principle or defend some bad one. Thus,
for many years, Peol and Pahnerston,
Eussell and Gladstone, Whig and Tory,
opposed vote by ballot at parliamentary
elections, on tho protence that it was "un-
English," and, only tho other day, when
the House of Commons was asked to vote
$150,000 marriage dowry and $30,000 a
year to the Princess Louisa, it was em
phatically declared that to oxpoct Queen
Victoria, the richest woman in England,
to provido for her children out of her own
ample means, was thoroughly "un-Eng
lish," so the (so-called) representatives of
the people voted tho required sum out of
It was conceded, during tho London
school board discussion, that even though
un-English, circumstances might justify
the making of education compulsory, just
as, in some cases, it might become ueces- I
sary to use a straight waistcoat. It was
admitted that "thousands of children were
going about tho streets who could be re
ceived into the ragged schools, but would
not go ; and there were also tho children
of men who, though earning good wages,
spent their earnings at the public house ;
and it was for these and such as these
that compulsion must be brought i_!i
operation." Finally, it was decided that
the compulsory principle ought to be
acknowlodged, and if acknowledged,
ought to ba enforced. This is to be
dono gradually and judiciously, but
unflinchingly. At the same time, cer- |
liin difficulties are to be got over. Many
rls of twelve, where there aro large-small ,
imilies and low earnings, are very useful \
t home, and can scarcely ba spared many i
burs in tho day from household duties. !
The thing must be done, but with care and :
tenderness, and above all, the working
classes of England must not think that [
free education carries with it any pauper
ish character. In this country it certainly
does not, because every father knows that,
directly or indirectly, he contributes towards
the expenses oi the schools. Mr. Hepworth
Dixon, tho biographer of William l'enn,
who is a member of the school board, has
given notice o l a motion to the effect that
in every school means must be supplied
for gymnastic and athletic exercises. An
other member who appears to havo some
common sense, has intimated tbat he will
vote for drawing and music (not singing),
- but will oppose the instruction of girls in
useless knowledge—such as mathematics
and algebra—which it takes much time
and trouble to put into the mind, and

scribes his visit to a hut in the mountain
region of Guatemala, to which he hat
hastened to escape from a shower whicli
suddenly set in ;
At tha sound of our horses' hoofs a lit
tle brown head, animated by sparkling
black eyes, protruded itself through the
bamboo enclosure of tho hut, and in a
childlike voice exclaimed, "Senores, ho hay j
genie aqui!" "Gentlemen, thero is no one
at homel" We nevertheless entered the
enclosure iv spite of this announcement,
where we found a girl of perhaps four
years of age, who, placing herself un
flinchingly before us, exclaimed in a tone
of decision, "Senores, this house is not an
We could not avoid smiling, and en
tered into a parley with the infant dragon
of the place. The child listened to our
expostulations with tho utmost gravity,
and allowed horself to bo moved by them ;
then turning towards our Indians, she
said with a comic air of superiority :
"And you, idlers, why do you not fasten
your animals to that tree yonder, where
you see the straw and maize ?" I was
perfectly dolighted with this pet little
creature, so young, so resoluto, and so in
telligent. 1 inquired her age, what she
did, and all about her family. She le
plied to all my questions iv a pretty
prompt way. "Ate you not afraid," I
inquired, "alone here in tho house ?" "Oh
no, I am Dover afraid, for God watches
over childron." This reply enchanted me,
and I caught her in my arms in a tempest
Friendly relations having been estab
lished, the little lady panned into an ailj lin
ing room aud left us aluuu. As she did
not return, and tho storm having in tho
meantime subsided, I went in search of
her, not wishing to leave without making
her some littte present. I thou learned
tho cause ot her prolonged absence.
Guided by that desire to please whicli is
born with woman and characterizes her
during every stage of her existence, she
had left ua tot the purpose of arraying
herself in her finest garb; but this first
impulse was cheeked by a fartling of basb

j DR. J. J. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: Your Koskoo
has workod wondersin my family. My daughter ha*
been a sufferer from Scrofula since childhood. She
lost thirty-one pieces of bone from her ankle, several
from her arm, besides having ulcers In several parti
of tho body. Whilst in this condition she cou-iuancee 1
taking your Koskoo —it acted like a charm on her;
under its use the ulcers gradually healed, and hei
general health greatly Improved. It certainly saved
her much suffering, and perhaps her life. 1 regard
Koskoo a specific for all scrofulous affections. Your
Koskoo also cured my wife of dyßpupaia, from which
she suffered greatiy. She is now lv butter health
than she has been in Aye years.

Tho Peculiarities of this Machine: Ist. It is small;
