"Waterloo Was won at Rugby." .?nid
Jv>rd Wellington. The spnxt con?
veyed 111 these words of loyalty and
devotion to the traditions and Ideals
of a school, is the spirit which Is
most apparent In "The nanism."
?The Bantam" was an American
boy, who was sent to school to St. j
Jo's, hy his father. close-mouthed
Lieners! Kllzhtigh, of the American !
old hoy of St. jo'i, and sent his moth?
erless lad back to the place w here he
had his early struggles and won his
early promotional so that he might
too he prepared to take his place
amor.g men w hen his call came.
St. Jo'e had Its traditions and its
code. "The Bantam" was t a w iry,
hard-fisted little fellow, quick-tem?
pered 10 a degree, hut honorable and
loyal above all else. He was soon J
initiated Into differences between the
"HopTttTs." the "Itartt-Storiners" and'
1he ' Song Birds" at St Jo'.-, got his ,
Ibear'nga in a surprisingly short space '
of time, and came out of his first tight
'better than might have been expected.
Hut. according to school ethics, he
was at lunted fresh and was punish?
ed for being so. A temperament
that rendereil him a combination of
gjmeness and humor enabled him to
take his punishment with saving
grace, and to pass his test 'n a brave
*nd manly sort of spirit.
Life at school. Its simple pleasure,
its vigorous sports. its hoius of
lomradrshjp and friendly rivalry,
above all its class focltng and its
Irealization that a hoy of st. Jo's had
the honor of the school to keep un?
tarnished, is described in a dt light -
ful unhurried sort of a way. "The
Hentam" made- mistakes like other
boys, but unlike a great many hn
.corrected them, and held in the main
lo principles Instilled Into him na a
child by his soldier father.
The test of his school-boy career
came toward the end e>f his first year,
i when he fell Into undeserved dis
igrac* be ause ho sacrificed himself to
^?ve the life of a small hoy. who
'broke the rules of the school and
i went swimming In the lake. The
Ismail boy saved happened to be the
nephew of the Governor of New
Hampshire, and on Founder's Day, the
?Governor came to the school, freed
"The Bantam" from blame, and be?
st wed on him n medal "for his hero?
ism In saving human life."
Then "The Bantam" helped to win
the boat race for St. Jo. The book
, is one that all boy* ought to rrael
and be the better for reading.
?'The llnme-Madv Kindergarten."
By Nora A. Smith. Houghton, Mlf
flin Company, of Boston. i cuts net.
For all mothers, particularly those
Isolated from towns and schools, liv?
ing as the author says 'on the rolling
prairie, the far-off ranche, the rocky
Island, and the lonely lighthouse, thel
frontier settlement and the high
perched mining camps." Miss Nora A.
Smith has written a helpful little, book
infilled "The llome-Madc Kinder?
garten.' Miss Smith 1.? an authority
upon kindergarten methods in the
training of children'and gives many
practical hints in the application of
these methods. The first chapter nf
t- r the Introduction Is cn outdoor
Work and piny.
This Is well Illustrated by the au?
thors opening paraprnph as follows:
"The mother whose lines have fallen
outside the wilderness of brick and
stone we call a town Is. after a VI. |
T.ither to be envied than pitied, for the|
little child who can have free run of
nature's garden has absolutely nil that
he needs for education."
The third chapter deals with Indoor
work and play, while the last chap
, ter takes up the subjects of stories,
games and songs, about which Miss
?Smith says: "N'o mother, however re?
mote front metropolitan advantages
'i>he may be. but can sing with her
I children, and I'roebel, who believed
Ithat the plays of the infant are pre.
'raratler.s f*i ttiOjV experiences of ma?
turity, w'-oullf "have the mother sing]
|tti her child from the beginning. AI
[though the baby is yet. or seems to!
?be. unconscious, says the great teach-]
er. his ear Is open, and as he grows j
older the singer must continue the'
fpraetlrr until the child can Join his
\olce to hers."
The book is the result of full
knowledge and long experience, and
hi Is written with an ''.spiring friend?
liness that will mean much to its
?leaders. It should not be overlooked
?by any mother who wishes wisely to
.direct tho play of her children so as
lie make It not only a means of passing
I the time, but. nlso ati important pro
cos In making of character,

In the fore Ward to teachers tho ?hat- ?
actor and aim of this book Is well ex?
plained as follows: "The aim of this
book is to teach children the funda?
mentals ot the geography of Knropc
in their t elation to structure and in?
dustry. The authors believe thai the
book contains the facts of geography,
properly related, that are needed for
an elementary study of that conUn- i
cm. and that these two larg" phases,
of the study?structure and industry?,
should bo taught together In the do- !
mcntary school, how-over much we may |
differentiate and specialize their treat- ;
motu In secondary school and college." I
"It Is easier and more natural for
the child to learn the simple facts
about the earth's structure and related
industries together than it is to learn
them separately Moreover, the teach?
ing of Isolated facts in geography give? ,
him the wrong attitude toward the ?
?ubjert. and makes it dim all for him
iater to see the effect of structure]
? poll life."
The book Is delightfully written and I
well illustrated with the most inter-,
esting scenes of the different countries,
it appears to bo an exceptional method
of learning about foreign countries.
Wo advise our boys and girl.' to take
this book on their summer Vacation.]
They will find It !s as Interesting as
any story book and they will uncon- j
?Clously absorb ni/ny useful facts. I
Our elder readers ran also road it

It Ise seldom that one finds a story .
so wholesome and refreshing as this |
narrative, based on fact and full of;
th-- pathos of tho nation's struggle.
The love story Is tOU hing and beauti?
ful, and the hook though It shows the!
useless suffering which the war iar-(
rlod in Us train. Is absolutely without .
There Is more, too, than the historic]
Interest or the intost of the love theme
to make the book appealing: for the I
"Log House Club," which ghes Iis name
to tho story. Is a social experiment
worthy of stud?.. The cliih Is tlio mit- I
lira! result of the association of s
number of young men who had con-I
tracted with the railroad company lor!
the building of a large stretch ,.f rail?
road In the West; but the success of.
the club is largely due to the presence
of Mrs Graham and her two daughters,']
who make the tiuli House homelike
and lend inspiration :n the boys.
The happy life of hard work and
mutual helfSulness is interrupted by i
the call for men to aid tho nation In I
her deith struggle; and all, with ih?!
exception of one who had previously I
returned to Ms homo In Louisiana, on-j
list In the Federal army. Tho story j
of their leave-taking and of their parti

hook is divided into six chapters. In thai
inst. "Errors In Exercise," iho author*]
aays: "Exercise In primitive times:
whs the prFc of life. It w.is only
after wo had' learned to live by our I
wits and exorcise became a luxury,
that It hog-tn to run inio fads."
"The worst error of ex-erelse, the
most daneerous fad of physical cul?
ture, is not to take enough of '.t. and
to sneer al every form of it that does
not hear the dollar mark."
In the second chapter, "Athletics and
the Heart." wo find: "In the game of
life, hearts are trumps, hut wo have
been leading from other silts Urst In
athletics. For years we regarded
athletics as chiefly a matter of mus
? les, vet totallv ignored tho mom im?
portant mnsrle r>f all, the heart. It
differs from tho other muscles only In
that It Is hollow and that It never
stop? -until we stop." I
Dr. Hutchinson opens Chapter III.'
"Muscle Maketh Man" thnsly: "It Is
.? o Idcnt that muscle makoth nearlv
half our body weight Indeed. If we
add in the bones, whose only use on'
..?itli is rs stiffening and levers for
the muscles to pull us about by. and
the tendon and ligament ropeF andi
sinews which tie the two together,
we may regard ourselves as practically
l wo-thirds muscle and Its tools."
Under the head of "Occupation and
Exercise" wo a.re told: "in the begin?
ning, ociipatlon and exercise were
synonymous terms The strenuous llts
was tio- common lot. You had to live |
It just to get bread and butter. It ]
was a i aso of eat or be oaten."
"The real danger of at hietlcR" Is 1
explained as follows: "An athlete Is
like an aeronaut -safe enough while:
going, but in dnngor the moment he
slop., especially if he slops suddenly!
V. lie "Kxerrlse That Rests" is treated
in this manner: "One of the oldest and
truest of the tlalllc gibes nt the Kngllsh
was that they 'took their pleasures
sadly.'" '"if this hybrid Anglo-Saxon
civilization of ours he says: "We take'
our pleasures strenuously.'' ;
The book Is valuable to the business
man as well as to the athlete himself
