to i he
me mod adopted by many, oi
teaching pupils to road with
out learning t spell. There
may be teachers who sicceed
by "this method, but it has
been my lot to follow :;ome
who tried it and, in my opin
ion, made a failure. Then, to
begin with the beginning, I
endeavor to get the children
to name their letters, I do not
say just here, to know their
letters, for a thorough knowl
edge of the alphabet is ac
quired only as tho pupil ad
vances in the study of orthog
raphy. Then comes the te
dium and monotony of spell
ing the many columns of words
in the spell Ing-boox. This
may be 'relieved, however, be
teaching the child, at once, to
write by the use of the slate,
and then varying the exercise
bv giving it short words and
afteward short sentences to
write; and when it has learned
to firm all the. letters let it be
required to copy the words in
the spelling lesson and senten
ces from the reading lesson,us
ing the marks to indicr.t the
sounds of the letters
When the pupil has advanc
ed far enongh to spell from
memory let him be required to
write the words .on a slate or
blackboard, dividing the words
into syllables, marking the ac
cented syllable or syllables
and using the diacritical
marks. Dolievinir that the
eve as'well as the ear should
ing as the words are pro
nounced. After giving out
the lesson. I then reonire the
and criticize the work, one of
another, indicating their criti
eism by ligares. After this
I require the whole class to
take its position for a genera!
criticism vh?n such changes
are made as may be necessary.
The standing of each pupil is
determined by the numhiv ho
gets, one hundred being the
mark of periVci ion.
I think I have been quite
successful by this method ;
and in addition to my success
in teaching pupils to spell, 1
liiid it profitable as an exercise
in articulation ; for I require
each pupil" to repeat clearh
and distinctly each word as it
is given him to write.
When pupils are at all apt,
this exercise of writing short
sentences in connection with
their learning to spell will
make it easy for them to learn
to to read.
In the use of reading books,
1 endeavor to carry out the
design of the author. If this
is done, the plan of tlie best
readlr.g books of the present
lay affords s-t-flicient variety
for the exercise of the pupil's

The lessons contained in Ap
pleton's readers, "How to
Head' are well calculated to
aid the teacher in instructing
pupils upon the principles of
inilfcction and emphasis. The
teacher's voice and manner
must te the guide, however,,
and it is important that the
teacher himself should study,
and practice on the lessons
that he may be prepared to
teach the pupils a-rigut.
As soon as children have
learned to read sufficiently to
use a primary arithmetic
start them in that with one
exercise each day, following
the design or the book. Let
the child understand that live

Two Much for the Devil.
According to the Salem Gazette,
this is Fdward llale's story : A
man had sold himself to the devil,
who was to possess him at a certain
time, unless he could propound a
question to his Satanic nunestv
which he could not answer, he be
ing allowed to put three queries to
him. The time came for the devil
to claim his own, and he consequent
ly appeared. The firtt question the
man aked was concerning theology.
to which it caused the devil notrou
ble to reply. The second he also
answered without hesitation. The
man's fate depended on the thiid
hat should it be ? He hesitated
nd tinned pale, and the cold dew
stood on his forehead, while he
shivered with anxiety, nervousness
terror, and the devil triumphantly
sneered. At this juncture the man's
wife .appeared iu the room with a
bonnet in her hand. Alaimed c
her husband's condition, she de
luauut'i to Know tne cause. v nen
informed, she laughed and said :

This is an era of great undertak
ings by land and sea. One of the
latest is the railroad project to con
nect Recife (Pernanibnco, the most
eastern seaport of Brazil, with Val
paraiso, Chili, the nearest harbor on
the west coast of South America to
Australia and New Zcalaad. The
voyage from Lisbon to Recife is
made by steamers in nine days, and
Valpariaso could be reached by the
proposed railroad route from Recife
in live days, making the .time from
Europe to the Pacific coast fourteen
days. In obliquely cutting South
America the road would traverse
fertile provinces of Brazil, Paraguay,
the Argentine Republic, and
Chili. In both Brazil and the Ar
gentine Republic, use could be made
of skeletons of railroads already
constructed. The estimated cost of
the undertaking is 150,060,000. A
syndidate has been formed in Rio to
obtain grants of land and money
from the countries interested.
It need not be said that, on more
grounds than of.e, this project, as
well as all other projects for the de
velopment of South Am-riea, if a.c-
' complished, would be of great im-
ce to the people of the U. S.
With the p-ogivss of tnat vast re-

people should take advantage of
their opportunities. But this is not

portant consideration involved iu the
development of Brazil and other
countries of South America, If
railroad i should penetrate those
countries and make their cheap and
fertile lands avifilab'e for remunera

would be attracted from Europe.
