of his good work. Many other cm
- young men of -this section, -who ace,
were taught by him might perhaps and
give liimsthe same pride, had they rone

e prove that our public school system spot
nis progressing,.and.that our children ing.
r need not look to other schools for adv

education, if they only attended our it s
d schools regularly. stan
The -Pilette school in charge of othe
Prof Meaux, is doing admirably igen
well. With the material that we

yet what we would like to see it. r
