Among tho many pleasant younds
that fall upon ono's car, tho sound of
tho Sabbath bell rings out sweet and
clear. When this selection is recited
many a white crowned head will
droop and into many an aged heart
tho happiness of thought of Sabbath
days of long ago will creop.
THE OLD CKLKCII ?KU?.
Ring on, ring on, sweet Sabbath bell!
Thy mellow tono ? love to hear,
1 was a boy when first thoy fell
In melody upon my car;
In those dear days long past and gone.
When sporting hero in boyish glee,
The magic of thy Sabbath tone.
Awoke emotions deep in inc.
Long years have gone, and I have strayed
Out o'er the world, far, i'ar away,
But thy dear tones hn/c round me played
On every lovely Sabbath day.
When strolling o'er the mighty plains
Spread widely in tho unpeopled West,
Each Sabbath morn I've heard thy strains
Toiling the welcome day of rest.
Upon thc Rocky mountain's crest,
Where Christian feet have never trod,
In tho deep bosom of tho West
I've thought of theo and worshippiiduodi
Bing on, sweet bell! I've come again
To hear thy cherished call to prayer,
There's less of plcasuto now than pain
In those dear tones which fill my ear.
Bing on, ring on, dear bells! ring on!
Once moro l'vo come with whitened
To hear thee toll. The sounds aro gone!
And ere this Sabbath day has sped
I shall hu gone, and may no moro
(Jive ear to time, sweet Sabbat li bell!
Dear church and hell, so loved of yore,
And childhood's happy homo farewell.
Write on blackboard and haye pu
pils memorize one each day.

The future of our country does not
depend half so much upon who is our
next President, or what party controls
the government for tho next lour
years or forty years, as it does upon
tho question whether our school sys
tem is maintained in a vigorous and
flourishing condition, what class of
teachers administer it, tho kind of od*
ucntion thoy give, and tho nation's
success in getting into it the vast um?
jori ty of our youth.-Christian Union.
The above can bc road with profit
by some of the editors ol'our State,
who think that the only way to im
provo our schools is to cut down the
teacher's salary. The real reform
needed is better teachers, and not

5. Trying to make pupils beliovo I
G. Talking and giving too much as
sistance to pupils.
7. Too long recitations.
8. Ruts of all kinds.

? How can tho toucher use to tho
best advantage tho time when he is
not engaged in teaching? <V great
mistake will bc made unless there is
some thought over this matter. The
teacher may employ all his forces in
stud}' and come back to the school
room Unrefreshed. Or he may go lo
the opposite extremo and indulge in
too much recreation. In following a
friend's good advice that exorcise is
necessary lor health, I know of a cer
tain teacher who came to his class in
tho morning exhausted with a ten
The fust thing to apply your after
school-hours to is in gaining or
strengthening your health. How to
do this depends entirely upon your
constitution, physique and habits,.
where one needs much exercise in the
open air, another is better without it.
Study yourself physically that you
may make the best use of your time
in this direction.
Next in importance is preparation
for the lessons you have assigned youl
class* Never come unprepared tc
them any moro than you would ex
peet a pupil to undertake a recitation
without study. Look up any illustra
tiens and information bearing upoi
them, and so interest yourself in ii
that your scholars will unconscious]]
imbibe your spirit. A teacher win
habitually neglects this preparatiot
cannot lui! to lind equal neglect fron
his pupils, if any spare hours ar
now at your service, apply them t
general intellectual culture. Heat
standard books; .stirring magazine at
tides that keep pace with tho time:
enlarge your mind by variety; un
read to make yourself capable lc
Not According lo Law.
The advocates of starvation wagi
for teachers defend their position o
the ground that, while the Slate sha
give but ten or fifteen dollars
month as salary, private cont ri hu tun
may bo expected to swell the amoui
to a decent sum. Admitting (hut th
arrangement eoulil be made, it is m
in accordance with the spirit of ll
school system. The object of this sy
tem is to give free education to a
children alike, without any disci ri ni
nation. This is the great (catii
which, according lo Dr. Carlisle ai
other leading educators, distinguish
thc present system from the one ex Ls
ing before the will'. Now, suppose
teacher is expected to supplement li
publie salary by charges on indivii
uals. If such charge is made, and tl
parent of a child cannot or will n
pay it, the child is debarred from tl
school privileges, which it is bis rig
to demand. On the other hand, ?I II
extra burden is is borne by
portion of the pupils, and the rest a
admitted free, the odious dislinotn
between "pay" and "pauper" pup
at onco arises, and our tuito-hcllu
system is revived in the same fcatu
that destroyed its usefulness. INI iii
better would it bo to pay the tcnelu
decent living rates for a few mont
of public school, and then let p
schools1, as such, be opened. Or, bi
ter still, let every community raise
local tax, and in this way keep t
schools open 1er six months, withe
pauperizing the unfortunate loache
