DUTIES OF PARENTS.
The parents of the children sent to
our public schools have always insisted
on the sacred right of grumbling at
the teacher. This one is to cross, this
one to good natured, this one to strict
that one too lenient this oile is too ig
norant, that one tries to teach too much
and so on to the end of the chapter.
Xow the poor teacher is but human
.•nd has many human faults he prehaps
deserves a great, deal of the censure
heaped upon him but it is surely un
fair to charge hiai with all the crimes
in the calendar without allowing him
to make such counter charges as the oc
casion may repuire.
Against the parents of many of our
public school scholars we make the
following serious charges. 1st They
do not insist on the regular and punc
tual attendance at school of the chil
dren in their care: thus discouraging
the law of the land and the good of the
2nd They do not visit the schools
and inform themselves of the prog

of the teacher and by showing an inter

Dr. Melcher's correspondence upon
the agricultural matfc/Sivlias brought to
our notice, the fact that there .is a ten

if the money had passed through the
legitimate channels, all the queries
and explanations which followed would
not have been necessary.
It was not necessary that the treas
urer should cast his eyes upon the
money and handle it, but only that re
ceipts and vouchers should...be taken
and filed, and the pre,per amounts en
tered in the debit and credit .columns
of his books, so that when he made his
report the society would receive its
proper credit. If the affair had been
managed in this way treasurer Wilson
