answer if taken in its fuirmeaningior
who is the teacher ? Is it one who has
charge of the children six of the twenty
four hours, teaching them to re id, spell,
write, etc ? Is it one who meets them
every Sabbath and spends an hour in
instructing thena concerning the "Word

three hours in each month to teaching

our first words, and take our first totter-

She who teaches us what we are and
what we should be, what is cin and its
effects, our first lessons of self-denial,
shows our first wrong and teaches us
our duty to ourselves and to our God.
