from readers or histories. Requiro
any copying to be done neatly and
'correctly and allow no other to
' pass even if it requires much time,
as it is well spent, as few other
exercises will do as much for
pupils in the acquisition of good

extends throughout life. Tho
Bchool is only a means to an end.
'The end sought in tho study of
grammar is not grammatical facts,

The end sought in arithmetic is
not answers, but mental deciplino
in rigid and exact reasoning.
Very little of pure arithmetic

bought in the study of geography

dead geographical facte, but an
imagination filled ' with living
