Mr. Smith is engaged by the Pea body Trustees for the purpose of arousing & greater interest ir the practical side of a child V education. His talk was ver\ helpful to not only the children but to the teachers who direct the child in his school work. It is a fact that our system o' education is wanting m practica ideas and we stick too close t< text books. Teachers toe frequently become hypocritica on the subject of diocritics ant overlook the real needs of s child. Mr. Smith is doing agreai work in directing the teachers minds away from the nonessen tials and it would well pay then if they could secure some of his sermons and study them closely His insight into the life anc character and needs of the young seems to be an inspiratioi and his services will prove oJ _a. i _a-u . vaiuc ui ieueviug wu> system which heretofore has ha< only one side to it.
