It is certainly giatifv ing to note the iuterest. taken, and we hope that it will be an incentive to better work in the future, on the part of cur schools. The fact that we have such a Sne oppoitunitv to place sam ples of our ability to teach accurate and systematic knowledge, on exhibi tion : and to rally pupils and patrons to a loyal suppoit of their school, should be a great stimulant to teach irs to prepare themselves this sum ner to cope siiccu'sfullv with tno work that i i getting to be more ana more ex pected of those who otter themselves to teach in our schools It is certainly much better for sitae, teachers e* mice little more time to prepaie foi the lesponaible positions of teachers than to urge themselves on trustees and patrons with the lene desire to get a job. The text book contests as held this year should be an incentive to earnest and faithful work next year. For it is generally understood that the winner of a contest this year will not bo eli gible to the same contest next session. In this wav pupils that feel a little behind this time.will have an opportu nity to prepaie themselves to win next T r.
