Thc Study of Grammar,
There is a tendency now to shor
ten the ti mr that was formerly giv
on to tho study of Grammnrand tn
introduce instead branches in tho
natural sciences. The lader step
ls certainly correct, hut the former
is at least questionable. if, in (lie
progress of knowledge i* bo found
necessity to introduce new brunch
es of study, it should not he done
at the expense of excluding others
equally as useful.
S nur educators contend that il
is not necessary to learn l>y rote
the amount of technical matter or
dinarily fourni in grammars. Thal
persons who are accustomed to the
best forms of tho languages do not
need grammar teaching. That, ,lIt
is an error to repeat at school what
is learned at booie; und a still com
moner mistake lo occupy school
time with wliat is suro to hr learn
? ed in the groat school ol'thc world."
Thoro arr a few persons who
3. uaving beard proper language spok
en at homo, und who?linvlhg re.id
?.?tho; writing of the best English au
. thors, might write and speak cor
i^recily without gran ni mr teaching,
but^not so tho general mass. I may
br safely asserted that a la ur ma
jority of pupils have not been accus
>tommi to hear correct language
spoken av home, nor can they bo
-pvisiiadrd lo read at nil. I'.y (lie
< oar .alone wo arr taught lo avoid
. "Ix.oks is ;" but wi ther WO should

grammar. So (be proper forms of
thc personal pronouns. "I" and me

.fcriminatcd without tho assistance
.Lramnuir, to my mind, is a most
'important branch of study, and
.should be more thoroughly taught
>by.the teachers of this County. If
Tor no other reason, if should he
.taught io lix tho minds of the pupils
