Road and Study.
How many of our teachers are sub
scribers to educational periodicals?
Very few, wo fear, and yet how nec
essary they arc for the Improvement
of Iiio teacher in his profession. Un
less the physician reads and studies
periodicals connected with his calling
in order to keep abreast with the
many improvements and the rapid
strides of the science of medicine, he
will prove himself au unworthy disci
ple of Esculapius. The minister who'
expects to fulfill a grand mission
must be able to solve the intricate
mysteries of revealed religion and
keep alive to the upward and on
ward march of the church, or he will
fall far short of his mark. So with
every profession of life. And the
teacher, if true to himself and to the
interests of those whom ho instructs,
must keep up with tho progress of
his profession, and to do this ho must
supply himself with books and peri*
odioals and read them. Tho great
actor, Salvini, once said to his pupils :
"If you would wield a mighty power,
tho thiuidorboU of oratory, study,
study, study; all the gcuius in the
world will not help you along with
any art, unless you aro a hard stu
dent." We need not make the appli
cation, for every sensible teacher will
readily sec the point.
A New Sea.
It is known from careful measure
ments of M. Kondalre, that a large
part of the desert of Sahara is a large
basin, having a surface level lower
than the Mediterranean Sea. In that
part of the desert sunlit -of Algeria
and Tunis, this depression extends
about 3,-l?O square miics, which is
equal to the a?ea of the States of Del
aware and Rhode Island. Into this
basin it is proposed to admit the wa
ters of the Meditecancan by means of
a canal from the Gulf of (Jabe/., this
young sea having a depth of one hun
dred feet in some places, averaging
forty leet, with an aica of half of
Lake Ontario. Physical geographers
anticipate important climatic changes
in the vicinity from evaporation ami
precipitation, and \v all probability
will allect the climate and productions
of all southern Europe.
More than one thousand young wo
men have graduated during the past
month, from Vassar, Wcllcsley, and
other institutions, a fact which shows
that the higher education of woman
is receiving a small share, at least,
of that attention which its importance
demands. Let's have educated daugh
ters along with educated sons. Some
may doubt the propriety of co-educa
tion of the sexes, but equal education
is an Accomplished facl,ai d this is one
of the hopeful signs of the limes.
A minister was ridding through a
section of the State of South Carolina
where custom forbade, innkeepers to
take pay from the clergy who stayed
with them. The minister in question
took supper without prayers 01 grace,
and was about to take his departure
when mine host presented his bill.
"Ah, sir," sa d he, *'l am clergy
man !" "That may he," responded
Boniface, "but you came hero, smok
ed like a sinner, ami ale and drank
like a sinner ; and now, sir, you can
pay like a sinner.
General Sherman, who burnt At
lanta and Columbia, and who is noth
ing but an educated vandal, is oppos
ed to introducing collar ornament to
indicate rank because the Confede
rates wore them. Eh, hem 1 This

It is not well for teachers to love
