How an Observer Can Pick Female Pedagogues Out of a Crowd. Little Mnuneriama Which Glvo Bchool ala'ama Away Keeiy Tiuiu. What They Should Aim tv Accouiplibli. Miss Peter of Pomona read the follow ing paper before the County Educational association last week: Not long since 1 was seated in a railroad car and as it stopped at a cer tain station, the door was opened and two ladies entered, taking seats directly in front of me. As they walked down the aisle I heard a young girl remark to her com panion, "There, those are two school ma'ania, 1 am sure of it." As I am a school teacher myseif, this remark aroused my attention and I ob served the ladies more closely to Bee what there was in their appearance to give rise to euch a speech and to see if the observations were true. It wes undoubtedly true. School ma'am was written on every lineament. Every movement bespoke the peda gogue. If there had been the slightest shadow of a doubt in regard to the occu pation of these ladies, their conversa tion, which I could not help hearing, would have dissipated it. But what waa there in their appear ance that proclaimed so plainly their avocation f After carefully considering the sub ject for some time, I concluded that it was something in the manner of these ladies which led me to know that they were school teachers. These little mannerisms are almost in describable, but there are two or three things which perhaps might he men tioned : First, and most apparent, is the fashion many teachers have of making statements iv a very decided opinion ated way. as if when that statement has been made nothing more can be said ou the subject. It gives people the im pression that the one speaker considers the world one vast school-room and imagines herself chief instructor. Another distinguishing characteristic is that some teachers cannot hear a grammatical error or a mispronounced word without visibly longing to correct the offender. They cannot see a child commit a breach of etiquette without administering a look or word of re proof. Again, teachers generally cannot re frain from talking "shop," If with peo ple of the same occupation they are sure to talk little else, and if with other peo ple it takes all the self-control of which they are possessed to keep from do ing so. If you think these statements unttve please watcli yourseif and your 'ellow workers, and you will find either that these failings exist or tbat the teacher is exempting herself fro:r. the stamp of schoolma'am by the most careful watch fulness. Granting it true, why is it? Dars t say it b.iore a body of intelligent teach ers' The tendency of our profession is to make us narrow. Let us notice the failings mentioned ; ar.d see if there is any reason for them. We said that"teachers become opinion ated. In tho Bchool room the teacher iB the authority, and she must to a certain txteut make her pupils realize this fact. She cannot be suc cessful if Bhe is unable to inspire them with confidence in herself and in her statements She is constantly asso ciated with those who know less than she dees, and her words are received as law and gospel by those whom she in structs, it strange that she forgets sometimes when out of the school-room that she is not dealing with inferior inimls J agala, the helpful teacheruiust needs he a watchful oue ; she must be the sen tinel to call a halt in case faulty ex pressions or manners invade her do main. When this habit of beiug on tbe alert constantly is once formed, can it be thrown off the moment the echool rontndoor is locked at night? Ine third point spoken ot was tbe tendency V talk of their work. People iv all walks of life acquire this hal.it to a certain extent, but we seldom tiiid a lawyer who talks nothing but law or a merchant who talks nothing but business. Many teacheis seem to de light but in the one subject of school. This undoubtedly proves the absorbing interest that teachers have in their work, and this devotion to the caose of education is all very laudable, but we cannot expect people in general to (eel about these things exactly as we do our selvee and naturally they will uot care to hear them talked of constantly. We are ready to concede tbe point tbat the teacher has abundant reasons fur her distinguishing characteristics— yer. even the things which unite to make her a success in her work help to make her a crank. Bat tbe world sees the effect and not the cause, and criti cizes accordingly. The important point with us is, is there a remedy? "Yes," some one will say, "you should mingle in society and read gen eral literature." For an instant let us look at a very few of the thiugs which teachers should do. First of all they should carefully pre pare every leseon befote tbey go belore their clast. Possibly they teach Sor 10 subjects. Tbey should correct carefully a rertain amount of written work each Bsaath. They should call on all patrons of tbeir school, and mingle in society at lunch as pOSSlhie. Of course, teachers most reed a great i 1 eel, keep np with the times and he abl- to convene intelligent.y on general Toe community respeete thera more H they Identify theme*ire* with some , and do some active work along For tbeir own pereoaa! health and en joyraeat, tbey should take at least aa hour's racreatioa each day, aad sboiiid have eight boors' sleep.

H. r evenings she spends in careful preparation for the work of i the coming day; her nightß are often spent in planning how John can be made more honorable and manly, or how James can be more deeply interested in his work. She goes to school in the morning tired, but with a grim determination to bring everything up to her standard. She works under high preesure ail day, and goeß home to carry out tbe gro gramme of tiie previous evening. Has she read that instructive new book in which her friends are all so much interested? No, she has but little time for reading, and when Bhe does have time she feels tbat she mußt read books that 'car directly upon school work. Has she met that new family that has recently moved into the neighborhood? They are exceptionally interesting and cultivated people. No, Bhe has not time to devote to society, and when Bhe goes in company she feels ill ut ease —she goes so seldom. Miss LS. is also a conetiientiouß young woman, and has a sincere longing to benefit every child entrusted to her care, but you will not find her spending her time as does Miss A. After school closes at night, she spends a short time in planning the next day's work. She then takeß a walk and enjoys the beautiful rammer day, very likely she stops to chat with some pleasant friend or to make a short informal call upon a patron of iter school. Her even ing is spent in reading a good book, pos sibly a novel, or in going out to a social gathering or an entertainment. The night ehe spends iv reiieshiug, whole some sleep and on the morrow Bhe en ters her school room with an elastic step and a bounding heart. Her chil dren are confident of receiving a bright, happy Ernile from her, and her lessons are bright and attractive, not because of the studied preparation but because Bhe has the physical vigor and consequent enthusiasm to brighten them. At the end nf live years people learn to say : "It seems to me that Miss A. is not as interesting as she used to be; she is getting dictatorial and almost disagreeable; even the children speak of it. How old ehe ia beginning to look, too. I fear her health is not good." It is quite different with Miss B.; she is welcome everywhere, and is always spoken of as a most agreeable person. She looka as well and happy as possible and no one hints that she is getting old. The difference between these two teachers is that one is a school ma'am, the other a woman. Cannot the teacher be a woman witli all a woman's feelings, aspirations and sympathies? Is itnecssary for her to become a dis agreeable, raßping machine? Could we remember that when we enter the great body of public school in structors we have not sold ourselves body and soul to the state but have pledged to it our most efficient service. Our country demands that our public schoolß shall send 'orth broad-minded, good principled, loyal citizens. Can they ever Ij this if our children are domi"..,.ea by narrow, cramped school teachers unless nature mercifully coun teracts their inllnence? There is no thought which brings with it a greaterweight of responsibility to the teacher than the one "what we are we teach." The child is a keen interpreter of character, and our own worth stampß itself upon his plßstic personality, our limitations lower his horizon and our expanding thoughts broaden his view. May we nit tind inspiration in the thought that in trying to avoid becom ing narrow ourselves, we are helping our pupils to reach a higher plane of being. mi EI.ECTOKAI, VOTE.

The Part Games Flay in Affording 1 Physical Belief, The Human Mind Is Bo Constructed That It Jtequlres Periods of Mental and Bodily Ke lax atl on. All men feel the necessity of beguiling the hours. The veriest sloth will soon full sut of his senses if he does nothing but fount the ticks of the clocks. So man baa Invented for his solace an infinite variety uf deliberate pastimes—artificial work of fcead or hand —which lull bis perception of the slipping sands as well as productive labor does tbat of the artisan. The energy which has been cited to show that there are no signs of decrepitude or senility in the world—society, mankind as a mass—is nowhere more manifest than in the elab orate and costly preparations for amuse ment—for sheer pastime —which ensuo as soon as people get respite from the task of hrcadwinning. A notable and somewhat unsatisfactory feature in this mimicry of work is that tbe professional lfl coming more and more to the front, to the discouragement of tbe amateur. To excel In billiards, in cricket, iv golf, tennis or any of the myriad games played with balls of various size and ma terial more time must be filched from serious business than can by any means be afforded by those who have to earn a liv ing. To become proficient in tbe spot ■(troke postulates an apprenticeship at least us severe and as prolonged as that of any skilled handicraft, and the extraordinary perfection attained by those classed as ' gentlemen" cricketers, as distinguished from "players," implies that for them it is the business of life and not mere relaxa tion. The tendency of all games in this age of wealth and leisure is to turn play ers into athletes, and in these, as in serious work, "amateur" U synonymous with "immature." Vet games are of such excellent use ln themselves, not only as recreation from strain, but as safety valves for the danger oils or mischievous forces in human na ture, diverting tho thoughts from un healthy tendencies and chastening the frames into symmetry and grace, that it were a pity if room were not kept for peo ple who cau never aspire to professional proficiency. They are potent safeguards against two of the most deplorable deform ities to which human nature is liable dullness in the hard worked and vanity ln the idle, each of which brings many a man aud woman into a tragic degree of ridicule. Some young people are so constituted as to feel no inclination to games, but very much the reverse; their minds are of such liber as to retain elasticity without having re course to systematic diversion. That they arc not characters of small capacity which exhibit this trait may be shown by quoting two well Known instances of men highly distinguished in widely dliTerent careers. The Duke of Wellington could never ba induced when at school to throw any spirit into the sports of other boys. He preferred wandering about alone to the engrossing occupation of football or cricket. Rous seau consumed days and nights in close study in an attempt to master the game uf chess, but though he persevered in re pented endeavors they all came to nothing, for as often aa he sat down to a game all that he had learned went out of his head. Rut such instances are exceptional, and in most characters hard work unrelieved by competitive games is apt to produce "graovineas" and superfluous leisure stu pidity It is difficult to imagine a young woman fond of lawn tennis falling a prey to the morbid self consciousness which consumed the Comtesse de Seneoterre, whom Talle inunt dcs Keaux describes aa a beautiful hut very foolish woman.

You presented the poisoned half of the peach to the lady, who ate it with much relish and then dropped down dead.
