has been learned in tho lower. Children
who have received a smattering
of a number of useful things, and
some useless fads, lcive the school
with a defective thiuking apparatus
and almost total ignorance of geography
and other essentials and must
perforce be consoled by a superficial
knowledge of educational frills aud
furblows. This would not bo so bad,
were it not that that the goldon op
portunity for brain development aud
thought-training has boon forover
lost in the majority of cases, tho
child being compelled to at onoo bid
farewell to school days and go to
work to earn a living.
The most woeful foaturos of all
educational institutions, both public
aud private, is the lack of individual
discrimination and selective instruc
tion. A careful study of tho individual
pupil is rarely mado and such
attempt as are made in this direction
are ofton frustrated, from tho fart
that most teachers have failed to in
form themselves along the line of
child study gonoral and of child
psychology in particular. A
that could be greatly overcome ty

profession as a life work and prepare

In the long run, labor is the most

It is a pity that society is daily
