the teachers In attendance are taught
to see and appreciate the elements of
good literature. They are learning to
cultivate the tasto of their pupils and
to show them what the best thought of

in drawing are simple and piaetical,
and such as can be used by any timelier
in her own school. Special attention
is given to the correlation of subjects,
and the interdependence of tliu differ

the beginners have already obtained

Is manifested in tliu mental arithmetic
