" Cleve land Leader Boya Were Escorted to School Just as Girls Are Now. The extraordinary care that the Gre cian boy received in his formative years made his moral training more effective than that inculcated by the most careful of modern parents. His general educa tion, coupled with skillful and continu ous physical instiuction, produced a moral cultivation very similar and fully as strict as that the Christian father Jeerus necessary for his daughters. A pedagogue, generally an old and trusted slave, led the boys to school and called for them after it closed, carried the bocks, looked out for the little boys, kept the older ones from fighting and falling into bad company and had a general oversight of their conduct and treet form. He was by no means a cchoolmaster or even a private tutor, not even being allowed to enter the school room. Oftentimes ignorant in the ex treme, he was chosen simply because of his loyalty to the family and some times, I fear, because he was unfit for any other occupation. Though the butt of the boys' ridicule as well as that of thecomio poets and low wits of the day, be did an incalculable service in preven t- I ing vicious companionships and keeping I pure the minds of those intrusted to his charge. The child was never sent off to board ing school, but boys attended the day school ; town life prevailed. Besides, that sentiment that zealously guarded the hoy's purity with a pedadogue from ! his sixth to his sixteenth year could 1 brook no intermission of personal o. .r- sight. Education was essentially pri- vate, the state having jurisdiction eim ! ply over the moral and not the profes I sional standing of the teacher.
