boys and girls. No thinking

up to bo Ignorant and useless or
and enforce the use of books
prescribed? These questions, I
will leave for others to decide,
with the exception of one rem
edy, which I will propose, and
that is to secure tb3 services of
permanent teachers in all the
schools, or in as many as possi
ble. Let there te a prescribed
course of study, then let the
teacher or board of education
select a series of books to be
used to the exclusion of all oth
ers, and require every pupil in
school to procure these books,
or let a supply be bought for
the use of the school, and lent
to those who cannot or will not
buy, with the urderslandiug
that they are to be returned, at
the close of the term.
The discipline of the school
should be left entirely with the
teacher. He must tach and
manage by his plan, the product
of his own brain. With any
other plan he will make a fail

to get up a plan of government,
a system of recitations, and a
proper arrangement of studies,

Food, raiment and shelter are
all the things that the body of a
human being needs. But the
soul has a very different set of
needs of its own. The needs of
the body are material; those of
the soul are spiritual. The ma
terial waats are supplied out of
the eaith, the soa and the sky,
that is, out of the world of na
ture around, above and under us.
The spiritual wants are suppli
ed out of the spiritual world
within us. As we dig into the
earth, search in the sea or seek
the free breath of heaven to
keep the body alive; so we have
to search in the sjuI to develop
its rich treasures of affection, its
traths of thought aud its strength
of will to supply the soul with
what will not only keep it alive,
but cause it to grow into the
full stature oi spiritual man

by commerce also the different
parts of the world supply each
other with what the body needs,

Why was the miserable and suici
dal system of credit ever established?
Why should the honest man be
made to pay the debts of the dis

wares that the honest poor man buys
are marked up to a figure that will
cover that loan. Is it right? Is it
- The credit system is bad in many
ways. It encourages improvidence
and extravagance on the one hand,
extortion and usury on the other.
It makes theft respectable, wrecks
friendships and ruins homes. It
should be abolished.
If every man in business got his
dues 1Y0M4 those who were able to
pay, he could afford to give to those
who were not and still realize
handsome profit. The majority of
our large financial failures and the
periodical stagnations in trade and
enterprise are due alone to this des
tructive system. If a man is afflict
ed, in need or distress, relieve his
necessities and put him in a' way
to earn an, honest livelihood. Never
allow him to open an account, never
allow him to anticipate the fruits or
enjoy the procieds' of unperformed
labor. '.'Sufficient for the day is the

with reference to sending child
ren to school. They think
that they can place them In
school, the second or third week,
after the school has been regu
larly organized, and then keep
them at home, one or two days
in the week, and that they will
learn just as much as those who
attend all the time, and thus
they save money. This is mis
taken economy. Sometimes we
find In our public schools 50 or
60 pupils one week, and the
next week only 10 or 12. We
often find for the whole term an
average attendance of fifty per
cent or less.
How aro the difficulties to be
remedied? They are very dis
couraging to the teacher, and he
is often blamed for the ignor
ance of children, when it should
be charged to other causes, the
only remedy that I can suggest
- - j
ing the soul; o.- to do the very
least that is thought necessary
to save the soul and devote all
the larger balance of the energy
we have to gain as much of the
world as possible.
Paul's theory is the only right
one enough of the material to
satisfy the needs of the body
and the balance to be devoted
to the development of the spirit
to a higher and nobler life. Ma
terial comfort may be increased
but it must be only so far as it
will contribute, directly to help
man to live in the spirit Man
was not made only to toil; he
must think: that is bis divine
prerogative, his imperishable
right. The man that never as
serts this right by exercising it is
doomed to sink toward theleve
of the ox and the ass, to com
rjete with mere brute force or
be a mere machine.
The boy of to day, who neg
lects his education, goenf ut into
the woild to compete with other
boys who are educated. The
two have an uneven start and
the educated boy is the man who
takes tho lead. This is so in
farming as well as in the laudt
in the ministry, or in tfhy other
profession or occupation. An
education which trains the mind
to think and the whole man to
act better aud nobler is the only
education there Is. That is what
your boy wants; that i3 what he
gets. Your boy has more need
of an education than you had
when you were as old as he. The
world into which he must go is
a tie iv world, very different from
tho world through wlichyou
hav1 come. He needs other
teachers than yourself. He needs
the guidance and training of
those who have grown up just
ahead of him.. He will get it
in th 9 schools. But you say you
are too poor to educate your
children. Give them a start
with some inspiring teacher and
they will educate themselves
with the little help you can give
them and the power and deter
mination they shall have to
But you say that there is a
mortgage on the farm and you
cannot spare your boys now from
working with you. Then call
them to you arid tell them your
financial condition, and promise
them that you will try to givo
each of them an education if
they will join with you to work
off the debt. Give them to un
derstand that after paying off
the interest and part of the debt
each year the balance of the in
come of the farm shall go to

them that in. this age they need
