of our pupils so that they wvill reCtuire
and demand cleanliness antd healthful

The teacher's attitude and her own
example will speak with greater weight
and aithority than any amount of ad
vice. When the school-house and its
surroundings have been imlade clean
ad I- sa nitary or when we are working
toward that goal then only can we
hope to impress the necessity of this
tllon the colmnIunity.
Ask yourself how many of your pu
pils make a daily practice of washing
the teceth. When we have taught the
children the danger of disease from
getims they will soon be as anxious for
sailttary conditions as the teacher, and
we will have taken one step In the
hit when we have a iodel school
rool in respect to hygienc that is only
the beginning as the hardest part lies
before Is-to bring the people to such
at mind that they will see tile import

the people want and domand sanita
