Flnally, thero are ccrtaln sentlments whlch every school, publlc, prlvate, or cn dowed, ought to help to strcngthen nnd foster ln the mlnds and hearts of lts pu plls. The world ls stlll Boverned by sentl ments, and not by observatlon, acqulsl tlon, and reasonlng; and natlonal great ness and rlghteousness depend more on cultlvatlon of rlght sentlments ln the chlldren than on anythlng else. . .' . . Now, tho sentlments whlch Amerlcan schools ought to cherlsh and Inculcate aro family love, respect for law and pub llc order, lovo of freedom, and revorence for truth nnd rlghteousness. Incldentally but lncessantly they ought also to teach the doctrlne that we aro nll members ono of another. Fortunntely thls Jast doctrlne can be amply and forclbly lllustrated by the experlence of every household. The lmmcdiato dopendenc-e of ono household on many others, and of one communtty upon many others, has really becomo for mldable during the last century; slnce every Indlvldual has become dependent on many other people mostly strangers for the most absoluto necessarles of llfo, It ls hlgh tlme that a dlroct and vlgoroua lnculcatlon of the fundamental and Indls pensable soolal sentlment should be do Uberately made a part of the dlsclpllno of every school nnd college ln the country. There ls not a rollglon, or a rellglous do nomlnatlon, ln tho world whlch does not recognlze theso sontlments, or whlch ob jects to nny of them; nnd rellglous dlf ferences should not bo allowed to provent the teachtns of theso primary prlnclplos to nll the chlldren ln tho land.

On the other hand, six per cent. mortgages are at this time be ing made only upon questionable security or the borrowers are in poor credit. Therefore, in our opinion, five per cent. mortgages are most decidedly to be preferred to six per cent. mortgages because they are Surer as to interest, Safer as to principal Send for our last list of loans.
