We cant' help but wonder how long

would lie not know that very few edi
tors ever have in their possession at

There never lias been a time in the
history of our country when expert
and intelligent young men, who have
been taught practical life lessons ami
thoroughly educnted for business,
were in such demand as at present.
So groat is the motley capital of our
country, so sharp is the competition,
so Kicat is the value of time, anil so

a chance to excel, and hardly to sue

tralued directly for this chatted con

There is a glowing impression that
the public school may take a wider
range than the mere elucidation of
mathematical problems or the unfold
ing of natural and scientific laws. It
is now held that a boy can not too
early regard hliuhelf as a clti.en of
tlie republic, and be taught along with
a clear idea of such responsibility, a
loyal tovereuce for the llag and tlie
names whieh have perpetuated it.
Should the llrst day of every school
year be given over to a semi-social re
view of public affairs, to the carrying
of banners, and the singing of patri
olio songs it would be a day well spent.
Tho republic lias had already very
serious problems before It of race and
of the amalgamation of nationalities
and religions. The children in the
t-chools today must be equipped not
only with education, but the loyalty to
solve these problems.
