Aie3llaiis. when asked
should learn, replied "Those which they
will practice when they become men." As
health requires the observance of the laws
Inherent to the different organs of the hu
man system, so not only boys, but girls
fbould acquire a knowledge of the laws of
uieir organization. . If sound morality de
pends upon the inculcation of correct Drlncl-
ples in youth, equally ro does a sound
physical system depend on a correct physical
education during- the same period of life.
If the teacher and parents who are deficient
in moral feelings and sentiments are unfit to
communicate to children and youth those
nigh moral principles demanded by the na
ture of man, so are they eaually incompetent
directors of physical training of the youthful
system, u ignorant of the organic laws and
the physiological conditions upon which
health and disease depend. For these rea
sons, tho study of the structure of the
human system and the laws of the different
organs are subjects of interest to all- the
young and old, the learned and tho un
learned, the rich and poor.
As the seeds of disease, that mature with
manhood and womanhood are in most cases
sown in youth, it is imperative that every
boy and girl should be taught the structure
of the human system and the conditions
upon which health and disease depend, as
this knowledge will bo required in practice
in after life.
Health and disease are physical conditions
upon which pleasure and pain, success and
failure depend. Every Individual gain in
creases public gain. Upon the health of its
people is based the prosperity of a nation;
by it every value is increased, every Joy en
hanced. Life is incomplete without the
enjoyment of healthy organs and faculties,
for these give rise to the delightful sensation
of existence. Health is essential to the ac
complishment of every purpose; while sick
ness thwarts the best intentions and loftiest
alms. We are continually deciding upon
those conditions which either tide us with
joy and happiness or occasion pain and dis
ease. Prudence requires that we should
meet tho foes and obviate the dangers which
threaten us, by turning all our philosophy,
science and art into practical cvmmon sense.
We, as a people, are becoming idle, living
in luxury and ease and In the gratification
of artificial wants. Some indulge in the use
of food, -rendered unwholesome by bad
cookery, and think more of gratifying a
morbid appetite than of supplying the body
with proper uourishment. Others devote
unnecessary attention to the display of dress
and genteel figure, yielding themselves com
pletely to tho away of fashion. Such in
temperance in diet and dress manifests itself
In tho general appearance of the transgress
or, and exposes his folly to the world, with
little less" precision than certain vices signify
their presence by a beer bloated body, rum
emblazoned nose and kindred manifesta
tions. They coddle themselves instead of
practicing self-denial, and appear to think
that the chief end of lire is gratification,
rather than useful endeavor. It is some
what unaccountable and not a little incon
sistent, that while we direct the young sub
mitted to our charge as teachers, to look
abroad over the surface of the earth, and
survey its mountains, rivers, seas, and con
tinents, and guide their views to the regions
of the firmament,' where they may contem
plate the moons of Jupiter and the rings of
Saturn, and thousands of luminaries placed
at immeasurable distances, that we do not
devote more time to teaching them to look
unto themselves; to consider their own cor
poral structures, the numerous parts of
which tney are coinposod. ' the admirable
functions they perform, the wisdom and
goodness displayed in their mechanism, and
the lessons of practical instruction which
may be derived from such contemplation.
It is therefore obvious to us that tho edu
cation of the boy or girl is far from com
plete, If the study of his own being has been
neglected. Let us then adopt such methods
of instruction as will present the subject in
its most attractive and practical form to our
pupils. The teacher who is a constant
reader of educational journals and works.
and who is always on the alert for better
methods of Instruction in all branches than
6he now possesses, has doubtless found an
unlimited number of articles, treating upon
the subjects of "how to teach natural his
tory to young folks," "interesting geography
lesson" and "number lesson," but how often
do wo see anything about "physiology for
the little folks."
Teachers seem to ' regard this subject as
too difneuit and uninteresting for any grade
of primary pupils, and fit only for higher
grades where of course good text books can
be used. Many complain that the wards
are so long and difficult, that their pupils
cannot learn to pronounco them, and with
out pronunciation how are they to learn the
meaning? This seems to be the greatest
trouble, yet, cannot this be easily done away
with? Children like hard work; give a
spelling class a spelling lesson containing
six such words as are commonly given to
children, then one long, hard word and call
their attention to it. Do you suppose they
are going to miss that? No: thev would
rather miss tho six easy ones than this one
long one; but they will want to know some
thing about it, what it means and what it's
for; so if we have our physiology lesson first
and learn something interesting about one
of these hard words, then put it in the spell
ing lesson, this makes it easier.
But some one will say, "What canyon
tell , them that's Interesting? My pupils
found the wholo subject dull and scarcely
one In the class wanted to study it." How
did you begin? Did you scare them the
first day by saying, "Children, at this hour
tomorrow we will have a physiology lesson,
we'll talk about our bodies," or If they are
old enough to have small text books, having
had plenty of talks, did you say anything
like this: "For your physiology lesson take
the first two pages In the look; you will re
cite Immediately after recess." If this is
you method no wonder they dislike the hard
words, and hate tho study of physiology.
Probably more than half the pupils in the
class came next morning and said: "Mother
said I needn't study physiology." If your
pupils are small and you have to begin the
talks, wait until you are acquainted with
them and can get them to talk with you.
thon have n visit with them about anything
that will interest them, and can, in any way
be turned into a talk on physiology, and the
all Important topic of health and cleanli
ness. For instance, read or tell them a
story about a littln boy or girl, that was
yery anxious to work, but blind, deaf or
crippled, all on account of not knowing how
to take care of his body. Mako the story
Interesting, get them to like this little, blind.
deaf, or crippled boy, and be real thankful
that they are trohg and well, then they
will want to know" something about their
bodies and how to take care of them, which
surely is as Important as any fact in natural
history or geography.
It should be the design of the teacher to
diffuso a knowledge of human anatomy.
physiology and hygiene. To make the
work clear and practical it seems that the
following method can be adopted with pro
priety: The structure of the different organs
of tho system should bo described in a clear
and concise manner. To render this de
scription more Intelligible, corresponding
illustrations should be Introduced to show
the situation of the various organs, and the
functions of the several parts should be
briefly and clearly detailed. I think tint
far better results are obtained by pursuing
the subject topically rather than by the
catechetical method. ' That Is, the former
requires an abstract from memory while in
the latter au omission of one thought often
leads the pupil to misinterpret the true
meaning. The teacher may call on a pupil
to describo the anatomy of an organ from
an anatomical outline plate; afterwards call
upon another to give the physiology of the
part, while a third may state the hygiene,
after which questions may be asked promis
cuously by the teacher and then the detailed
knowledge of the subject possessed by the
pupils will be tested.
At the close of the several subjects succes
sively considered, it is advisablo that the
teacher give a talk, reviewing the anatomy,
physiology and hygiene of the topics in their
regular order. Ibis may be followed by a
general examination of tho class upon each
subject separately. By this course a clear
and definite knowledge of the mutual rela
tion of anatomy, physiology and hygiene of
different parts of the human body, will be
I would also suggest the utility of the
pupil's giving analogous illustrations, exam
ples and observations, where these are in
terspersed In the different parts of the sub
ject, not only to induce inventive thought,
but to discipline the mind. With a very
little trouble and a small expense, . the
teacher can bring before her class such ma
terials and apparatus as will cause the most
indifferent pupil in her class to becomo Interested.-
For example: Supposo your class
class is studying the subject of digestion,
and you wish to show them what part the
fluids is secreted in, the different organs of
the intestinal canal play in the process of
digesting our food. You can tell them that
pepsin is the active element in the gastric
juices, and that It acts principally upon tho
albuminous portions of our food; illustrate
this by securing a few cents worth of pep
sin which you can get at any drug store,
and by inserting a small piece of meat into
a phial Containing a small amount of pepsin
they will notice that the pepsin has extract
ed a milky substance, which you can tell
them is the albumen contained in the meat,
leaving unchanged the fibrous and fatty
parts, to be acted upon by another fluid,
called bile, which is secreted by tho largest
organ in the body, the liver. Also the ac
tion of alcohol upon albumen can be nicely
illustrated by pouring a few drops' of alcohol
into a phial containing the white of an egg,
and have them note the change; you will
also find that you will have from the obser
vation, a practical temperance lesson. They
will not have to draw upon their imagina
tion but very little to see the evil effects of
intemperance, from a hygiene standpoint
Other illustrations might be given, but those
that your attention has been called to, will
suffice to show you the importance of asso
ciating the subject with real objects, which
wilt aid you in your part of the work, and
also materially aid your pupils by giving
them a practical knowledge of the subject.
Let me urge upon you the importance of
tho diagrams, which not only offer a better
knowledge of tho subject, but are lessons in
freehand drawing, thus if each part bo
dealt with in this manner, the pupil has a
practical Idea of tho mutual relation of each
In this work as well as any other, the ob
ject of teaching should not bo lost sight of,
that is to teach the pupil to think and reason
for himself. You ean never make your
pupil a scholar by drawing his diagrams or
measuring his angles or doing for him that
which, by a little perseverance and effort,
he can do for himself. The pupil can never
reach the summit of the hill of silence or art
by riding upon you shoulders. It can only
lo reached by individual perseverance and
dint of effort. Let him try his own strength
and try it effectually before be Is allowed to
call upon those of superior strength. Tut
him first upon his own Invention; send him
back again and again to the resources of his
own mind and make him feel that there is
nothing too hard for industry and persever
ance to accomplish ihe amount of work
that your pupils havo accomplished is not
measured by that which they have accom
plished with you as dictator, but by th
amount which they can do when left to
themselves. Let him know that in his early
flights stronger pinions are near and ready
to sustain him. but only in case of absolute
necessity When in the rugged path in
search of knowledge, if difficulties which ho
cannot surmount, impede his progress, let
him be helped, but never think of being led
when he has power to walk without help;
nor carrying his work to another bench,
when he can model it at his own.
