The time of meeting of-the de- bating society has been changed frnm Friday to Saturday, night, The subject for the next discussion is " Resolved, That art is more at tractive to the eye than nature."

We must warn the. boys of Way that they are dropping behind in this matter. WrAY, November 1. TEACHING MOKAI.8 IN THK I'tHLIC SCHOOLS. Nashville American. Supt. E. Benjamin Andrews, of the Chicago public schools, ad- vance( au yea ju au address he made the other day which we should like to see bear fruit in all the public schools of the country. It was concerning the teaching of morals in the public schools "cleanliness in speech and thought, thrift, temperance, fortitude, per severance, veracity, the rights and laws of property, public spirit, love of country, regard for parents, the aged, the feeble, the unfortunate and the lower animals." . These thiugs, he said, should be inculcated into the youthful mind. There can not be the slightest doubt that they should. It is from the public schools that most of the public school teachers come If the public school teacher, conse quently, taught something else be sides that found in the books, and bv word bv tleed bv suggestion impregnated the mind of the pupil with new, higher and better ideas of life, the future teachers, in many casea the present pupils, would be the better prepared to carry on the vrork. To what extent this is doue in the public schools of this city we are not advised, but that the at tempt is made to carry out this idea we are ready to believe. Rut the point is that the idea should be cuubi-uiiwv in mo lenuuei a uiiuu. The teacher is but a half a teach er that stops with the lessons, and the pupil who only gets from school that contained between the covers of the text books has not got all that belongs to him.
