may be a cultivated gentleman and
an honest man, but he must learn to

We fully endorse the following

What is education ? Many answers
have been given to this question, nor
do we hope to throw much light u ion
the subject, but we deem a true eduea
tion to be a training of the whole ol
a man?intellectually, morally and
physically. To train the intellect
alone makes man a mental gian ?, and
puts in his hands the instrument for
accomplishing great evil. To train
the heart alone makes him a fanatic,
and to train the body alone makes
him a well developed brute. ? A'.e.
