His story is that he went  to Wong Yuens store, toenquireab >ut  money, a garnishee having been put  in against the wages of a man who  was working with him, and theie  not being enough to satisfy the  claim, the amount hud been made  good out of hi������ money. Failing to  get a satisfactory answer to his en  quiry, he left, and had been home a  short time when Wong sent for  him. Going to the store he was  dragged in and set upon by Wong  and two other , who beat and cut  him, and he hid difficulty in getting away alive. Wong's story is  that the man came to hia place  with a knife, and demanded the  money. Upon being refu-?ed, he began to ema.-h tlie cash box, when  they interfered, and   in .the.s.jujfle,^.  he fell and cut his head on a box.  Wong and the other two men were  arrnsted by constable 'Jh mpoon  Saturdjiy night but were released on  bail. (  The,preliminary hearing of the  casa took place at 2 p m y<s erday.  and was adjou'iied iiiitil Friday at  2 p.m., to enabie complainant to  procuie Counsel. Mr Potts appeared for the accused.  THE DAVIES' BENEFIT.  Some of our citizens have been  further interesting themselves in  the Davies case, with the result that  they collected $37 on Saturday. It  appears that the unfortunate fa������nify  require the furlher sum of $30 to  enable them to reach England com  fortably. Mr B. Tullidge scmo  time ago, wrote to Mr Coyle, tho  General Passenger Agent in Victoria and has heard from him that  the Davies- will have reduced fares  to England.

A Thril'.his "story of I*.ouj;h uml Read?

Simplicity  is  its    keynote.   For a snake bite you cut tho  piece   out   of   your   leg   with   your  clasp-knife,  and  continue your  journey,  says an Australian writer. For  a broken rib you tie a string round  your waist. For toothache the treatment is to press a common knitting  needle, heated white hot, against tho  exposed end ol   the nerve.   The pat-j  . ient is    usually  held  down  by   two  ������������������strong".men for  this operation,   and  ���������sometimes     pursues    the     operator ;  .with a gun for the next two or three :  days;    but    provided    the    knitting '  needle is used lirmly and fearlessly a i  curo is   certain.      For   measles you j  eit   down  and  smoke  until  you    are  well.   1 have myself nursed  a  whole  family   through    the   scarlet    fever, !  though .1  knew   nothing  about     the  disease,    and,   indeed, know nothing j  about   it   now.   For   bronchitis    you !  blister the sufferer and turn him out  for a week.   The theory is all wrong,  but  it  works    in  practice.      People  live    a long time   up country;  there  aren't   many  doctors  there.   1   don't  Bay    there, is    any    connection,    but  both are facts.  Of course, there are occasionally  "regrettable incidents." If you give  cold mutton and apple dumpling to  a man recovering from typhoid���������  iwhy, he dies, that's all; and if .a  man " tries to cut'oh' h:s, own arm  with a handsaw, the chance;: are he  makes a mess of it. fc'.till, as a  general thing, you '"muddle through  somehow."  I doubt,if we do not know a little  more than is good for us about .microbes, blood-poisoning, anaesthetics  and petty details of that sort.t Then  the bush itself supplies natural remedies���������"pigweed," for instance, in  Queensland, an, excellent cure for  Beurvy���������while rapid smoking will to  a certain extent take the place of  chloroform and deaden pain. Isico-   ti-ne-iS'-g'Qed-ter��������� ccntlpedfi-bi-UiS,   What I wish to lay stress on is the  peculiar danger due to the enormous  distances and the isolation of the  bush. You cut a vein in an awkward place, and bleed to death because there is no one to tie it up.  A slight fracture���������even a sprain���������prevents you reaching home and you die  of exposure, thirst, gangrene, or a  complication of all three. You may  oven bo pinned down by vp, falling  treo or an injured horse-���������though j  quite unharmed 'yourself���������and never  get up again. It is quite a custom  for this reason for, the 'stockman  when on his rounds to keep a lookout for horses, cattle, or sheep  "hung up" in the bush and liable to  BO  into  to  weeks iii pulling  licked ii i|iinn'i'i  lh������������������>    con .iiii'.-.i'cnt  starve to death.   Hush-felling is  dangerous    an   occupation that  Burunco companies do not  care  "take the lives" " of men  about  engage in it.  "Bush madness" and kindred complaints, the accidents common to  horse-breaking und. bush-lVllin--,  snake bites (in places), and diseases  with nn alcoholic origin urn the principal practice of nn ''up-country doctor, 11 is surgical experience is limited, and ho, therefore, o perinea oa  any. patloht who gives him tho slightest provocation to keep his hand in.

But be was now getting purple, and  thero was no time for calculating  chances. O'Shaughnessy came back  and put a final edge on tho penknife. We, propped Johnson agaiast  some rugs and turned a strong light  on his throat.       ' >  It began to Tool a little ghastly..

The most reckless rough-rider will be  an abject coward in a gale at sea;  the daredevil V.

"It's, quite painless, you know,'  Johnson," I observed, not that I  knew anything about it, but I  thought it was. the professional thing  to say.  "Whereabouts do I go for- him?"  said O'Shaughnessy, brandishing the  knife in front of Johnson, who groaned,   "In here's quite safe, isn't it?"  "Hardly," 1 answered���������"rather  near the jugular!"  Here the patient whinnied 'again,  but was quickly reduced to submission.

Iloiv  Iron   and   Slvcl  In   Lowi-iK Hent  Hlse  In   'rc-miieruliirv.  The plienonicnion of a substance rising in temperature while losing heat,  known as "recalesceuce," which was  flrst observed by Professor Barrett  and investigated by Dr. Ilopkinson,  has been noticed in the case of iron at  a high temperature. A piece of iron  was heated to about SOO degrees C. and  then allowed to cool slowly. At this  temperature it is bright red. but on  cooling to about 7Si> degrees 0. a sud-  den disengagement of heat takes place,  the iron- ris^-7'iiT~"B7nperirfiire'~*a"fid"  glows with a brighter red.  This phenomenon was investigated,  more accurately by Ilopkinson in the  case of steel. Bound a bar ot! this  metal he wound a coil of copper wire  insulated with asbestus and jacketed  with layers of asbestus paper, Tho  temperature of the wire was followed  during the experiment by connecting  the coil to a Wheulstone's bridge to  find the variation In its resistance nnd  from this the variation in temperature.  The steel bar was then heated bright  red in a furnace and allowed to cool.  The temperature fell regularly to 080  degrees ��������� C, then rose to 712 degrees  C, when It again diminished.

W. and M.  had appointed lilm station agent al  Lone Dog because no one else would  take the job.  Lone Dog resented Bralnard's apparent yotitli, his cleanliness and his sobriety, the last two constituting the height  of eccentricity In Lone Dog, and four  nights after his arrival whirled in to  have fun with the "kid tenderfoot." It  was harmless fun enough. But the  boy���������he was little more���������did not understand it and grew angry, then sullen  ���������and then scared, tp tlie great de\ight of  the circle of grinning cowboys lounging under the station lamp.

In order to  ovoid a rumpus over this yere work of  art I'm going to give you all a chanst  at it. What do you bid for it?

"Don't you fret; you'll get Jt back  again, sonny.   Sister, eh?"   Store mov  "You're too old to play with them  things, sonny," he said quietly, "and  too young to get shot."

Playin' with  children is mighty comical, but they're  llabie to-git too familious to suit me.  I move we pull our freight to the saloon.  The drinks are on me."  It was, on the whole, a good natured  crowd, and,Steve was popular, whore-  fore it took the hint and its ponies and  departed whooping.  An hour later Steve returned. The  Ia-mp was out, and he was about to  ride along when he heard the sound  of sobbing from the dark Interior of the  station.  "Holy smoke! They don't breed men  where he comes from, that's sure," said  he, dismounting and going to the door.  He moved toward (he sound and made  out the boy crouching beside a bench,  his face in his hands. At the jar of  heavy footsteps the boy started, but  Steve laid a kindly hand on his shoulder. "There, sonny, don't take on like  that when there ain't uo reason. The  boys was just playin'. They didn't  mean no harm unless you'd pulled that  trigger."  "I'd have killed him,", sobbed the  boy, "if he'd touched me again."'  Steve chuckled. "He was saro enough,  kid. It was the rest of us you had  scared.   It was plumb ridiculous."  The boy apparently did not see the  comicality of the situation, for ho continued crying softly, while Steve.lookod  on, powerless to help. A crying man  was something new in his philosophy.

Smith told the committee that presidents of thc Mormon Church were  subject to "divine revelations." Me  snid that he adhered absolutely to  all the teaching of the church in regard to them and that he had been  visited with inspirations from God  directing him as to details in matters relating to the welfare of the  church, though no angels had come  to him, as in the case of his uncle,  Joseph Smith, jr., the founder ol the  sect. He also said that he believed  in tho revelation commanding polygamy as - made known to the first  president in a visit from "an angel  in black."-  Mr. Smith claimed that the founder of thc Church of Jesus Christ ol  Latter Day Saints had from time to  time received "revelations" and that  each succeeding president had inherited his power and had been chosen  by twelve apostles who were divinely  inspired in making the choice, The  principal books of the Mormon faith  are the Bible, the "Book of Mormon  Doctrine and Covenants" and the  "Pearl of Great Price."  According to President Smith, the  "Book of Mormon Doctrine and  Covenants" was made up chiefly of  revelations made by Joseph Smith,  jr., the expositions or declarations  made by him and revelations made  by Brigham  Young.

"Why it's horrible to think of  the danger I was in! I might have  been taken up for bigamy, as an accessory before tho fact!"  ���������'Well, I hope it will be a lesson to  you, and teach you never to do any  match-muking again 1" I said, laughing.  "On the contrary, my dear, my  match-making, as you call it, has  turned out so remarkably successful, that it will be an encouragement  , to me to persevere in the accomplish-  . ment for the rest of,my life!"  "Think of the mischief you might  have done!" I said, reprovingly.  "Think of the good I have done!"  cried Bella, getting up and kissing  me rapturously. "Can anything, I  ask you, have turned out better?  Here aro you and Mar"**., devotedly in  U>ve with each other, and en-ratted  to be married. The other woman,  poor thing, whom he fortunately lost  early in life, has died off conveniently in the very nick of time, and you  two have nothing to do but to marry each other and be happy!"  "How flippant you are Belial If  you had known my poor Ellinor-���������"  "And how falsely sentimental you  are, Freda I" interrupted my friend.  "It is quite absurd your pretending  to be sorry "for the poor thing, when  her death is to make your happiness!  By-the-way, I see you had a letter  from old Miss Fairfax this morning.  What does she say about your marriage to liark?"  "She is very good about it," I answered, taking Miss Barbara's letter  from my pocket and referring to it.  ������������������Iram-glad^Ltol(l^x;^t_was_nxu.ch_  better to bo open with her. She congratulates me very kindly, and says  that, of course, under the circumstances, she hopes we will not put  ofl our wedding too lpng, merely on  account of her feelings., It is kind of  her to say so; but I think Mark and  1 are both agreed that we had better  wait another year. She tells me,  too, that sho has let Kaneton Scars  very advantageously on a long lease,  and sho is going to live with her  widower brother, to take care of  his babies for him, It will bo an  active and useful life for her, and I  am very glad to hear it. Sho writes  so affectionately to me, I am suro  ���������ho,is very fond of mo,"  "So sho ought to bo," answered  Bella, nodding her head with decis-  ipn. "You havo bohaved very well  to her; and sho was ,a silly old wo-  , man to hido her sister away from  Mark for1 yonrs, as if bo was a com-  , mon blackguard! She did a great  deal of mischief to ��������� ovrybody; nnd if  you had run away with hoi* Ellinor's  husband, married or unmarriod, sho  would havo only had herself to  thank for it!"  "Don't be immoral, Belial" I said,  sternly nnd reprovingly.  "And don't you bo a prude,  Freda!" laughed back Holla, who, as  of old, always loved to havo tho last  word.  It may bo easily Imagined that  Captain Thistleby did not keep very  long away irom our littlo feminine  household. Ho very fioon mado an  opportunity of running down tor a  few days to boo us, mid we found  thnt "rui.nlnr.; flown" pmci'vi- wns  constantly repenting itself, 1 need  not say thin wo wore very happy together; nnd though our number wan  that fatal one of threo, whit-h in  supposed to \>o so Inimical lo U>v<. or  to friendship, I cannot nny ihat we  ovor found Holla much in the wny of  our enjoyment.

Summer faded into winter, nnd  winter at length brightened onco  mors Into summer; nnd whon tho  annlvorsary of poor Ellinor's death  had com* ami f-iiiie, Mark arid I settled our wedding day, nnd were  iiiui'iii-������l quietly, und vviiliuut any  festivities, at tho little church at  Bcacliff.  By hi-s own special desire, George  Curtis came down on purpose to give  me away; and Miss Barbara Fairfax,1  in slight mourning, would not consent to be absent ron the occasion.  I had no bridesmaids, and no white  satin or Brussels lace. There was  neither wedding-breakfast nor wedding-cake; nor were thoro any other  guests save those two elderly people  and Bella; neither was Aunt Selina  and her peach-colored silk gown invited to assist at the ceremony.  But there was at our wedding  which is lacking to many where all  tho above adjuncts are present in  profusion; for there were two people  who loved,each other with all their  hearts, and who, whatever the sorrows of this troublesome world may  bring to them, will still know how  to be happy so long as it pleases  God to spare- them to each other.

"For heaven's sake, lie still," he cried.  "You're getting all the blankets off.  and it's colder' u ice."  Henderson woke up. "I'm sorry, old  mnn," he said. "But you can have a  good sleep tomorrow morning. I'm  going away today, and shall probably  , not be back again tonight. Did I say  anything in my sleep V"  "I should say you did," replied Macdonald.' "You were talking half the  night���������a whole lot of rubbish about  blue eyes and blacK eyjs and hair and  things."  "Did'I mention any one's name?"  "Not while I was listening. 1 pulled  the blanket up over my head and refused to be let into your secret."  The two men tumbled out of their  bunk. They went to the door of their  cabin. The first rays of the sun came  swiftly over the Sangre de Cristo, and  the whole range was outlined in crimson.  The snow capped peaks rose cold  toward the sky, mid above the blue  was unfiecked by cloud. Across the  valley there had boon but little snow-  only here and there; were little patches  which v. the wind had brought, down  from the mountain side and scattered  against the windward��������� of the sagebrush. Rabbits scurried across the  plain in search of what little food  might be found. As they-ran they  showed white tails���������like great chrysanthemums drifting across the levels.  Macdonald got into his/corduroy and  pulled on his heavy hunting boots. He  reached for his rifie, a little 22-long,  and started out. "Tomorrow being  Sunday," he said, "I propose to construct a rabbit pie for dinner like'  mother used to make, and I guess 1  can land a few jacks before breakfast.  -Booi^little_d&vil&!iLk&_co^  going to give them a chance for their  lives anyway. I hate a man who will  shoot rabbits with a shotgun. With a  rifle like this it takes some skill, and  there is at least a lighting chance for  tho beasties. I'll be back in an hour.  You don't mind getting breakfast alone,  do you?"  Henderson made no reply, but ground  some coffee and stirred up the fire.  Macdonald swung off down the hill and  across the plain toward the sagebrush.  Henderson watched him till he was a  mile away; then he went out into the  open a'lr and took groat long breaths of  it. Going into the little stable, he fed  his pony, n little buckskin brute, which  till Henderson'took her "in hand had  beon known ,ns the ugliest pony in the  San Luis, siie whinnied delightedly as  Henderson opened the stablo door. Ho  fed,her a double portion of grain and  brought; wntor for her from the spring,  Ho gave Uot.*; too, an extra quantity of  hay. "Bettor eat It all, old lady," ho  snid. "You'vo got a long day before  you."  Ho went back to tho cabin, cooked  some eggs and bacon, made coffee und  drank three cups of it, hot and strong  nnd without sugar or milk. Then he  packed a can of food In a saddlebag  nntl carefully tied it to the saddle  which hung besido tho door. Ho filled  Iiis revolver and his bolt with cartridges and put his rlflo alongside tlto  middle. From under his bunk ho drew  a small tin box, unlocked It and took  cut a pnekuge of let lorn. Ue did not  open Iho package, but throw'It, mill  tied with a bit nf loiilhorn Ihong. Inlo  llie fire. For two or three minutes ho  stood and watcliod Ilia Jottors btit'iilng;  then he sat down nt tlio tabic und  wrote rapidly:  Donr Old Mno-You will find the Imcon  cut nnil tho oggr������ rcmly for scrntnbllug.

Then ho took  tho siuldlo to tho Hlnblo, clnohod 11:  tightly on (ho pony, took lili* rlllo,  mounted nud rodo away up tho trail  which led directly Into the motinlnlns,  An hour later Maciloniiltl roiuriiuU  Willi live l'liiitniH bsviuuinu lit inn blue,  Uo wns whlHtling, In ono hand was  hi,- liiiiiic and In the other he carried  his rlflo.

Macdonald  put down IiIh rlflo and onlorod. "Prob-  nhly he's out nt tho stable," ho thought,  Then ho sow tho lottor.  Miicdoiiiilil nut down nnil stared  Mnnkly Imfore him. "Won't be bnck!"  he exclaimed. "Won't Uo buck! What  does nil this monnv'  IIo went to the doc nnd looked tip  and down tbs trail from ths stable  There were no marks of a horse's feet  showing on the frozen earth.'': Returning to the cabin he cooked his ^ gs and  bacon, ate hurriedly, and agu.u slinging his rifle over his arm he walked  rapidly in/the'direction of Alamosa.  Henderson rode all day.i At night he  had come to the very crest of the  mountain where the trail descended to  the camp on the other side. It, was  nonr 0 o'clock. A moon was rising  somewhere in the east, and Henderson  watched it eagerly. He took from hi9  saddlebag a can of meat and. opened it,  eating ravenously. The pony watched  him, ''Sj-fl \v''"'.*<"*, ������������������nd. called his attention to the fact that she had haa  nothing to cat since morning.  Henderson rose from the snow and  put her bridle rein back over the saddle and led her to the trail which led  back toward his cabin. "Go home, old  girl," he said, "but don't tell them  where you left me. This is as good a  place as any in which to die. Go  home." ������������������-,.*  The pony started down the trail.  Henderson took a cartridge from his  belt and fitted it into his rifle. "I wonder," he said, "if they kill quickly?"  He placed the butt of the gun against  a jagged rock���������the muzzle over his  heart. Then he turned and looked out  over the east to the moon, which was  big and.round and beautiful.  While he .stood watching a soft India rubber -like nose was pushed over  his shoulder, and the ugliest pony in  all the San Luis said as plainly as a  horse can say things that she was hungry and wanted to go home. Henderson dropped the rifle into the snow.  ''We'll give them one more chance, old  lady." he said.  Then he climbed wea"Hly into the  saddle and rode down toward the valley.  When he reached Alamosa he took  the pony to the stable and fed her royally.  Afterward he went to the postoffice.  There was a letter there for him. This  is what it said:  My Dear���������I'am so sorry--so dreadfully  sorry���������about it all. Mr. Mac-lonald haa  written Frances how you would not tell  me about your failures and all that sort  of thing. "Why didn't you? Why couldn't  you have told me that you wanted me to  help you flight out? I would, dear���������oh, I  would! And why didn't you ask me  whether I cared���������cared more than anything in the whole world? Why didn't  you, dear?  Surely to ask me to love you wouldn't  be asking so very much. I am waiting,  dear.   Will you come?     KATHBRINE,-  J���������H^nTersbn~came oufoT^O^toTBce"  and found in front of. the hotel a group  of men. They were mounted and evidently ready to ride away. Macdonald  was with them. "We'll go first up tho  trail toward Sunnyside,'.' he said.  Henderson walked over to the group.  "Were you looking for me, old man?"  he asked. "If you wore you're just in  time to go with me to the station. The  train leaves at midnight."   ���������  Then he handed tho letter to Macdonald.  When the little narrow gauge train  pulled out that night Henderson occupied one of the berths of the Denver  sleeper. Throe days later he was In  New York. Kathorlno was waiting for  him.

There is an old anecdote-of Alexander Pope concerning one of the old  watermen who was employed for many  years in rowing Pope on the Thames.  Pope was in the habit of having his  sedan chair lifted into the punt. If  the weather was fine, he let down tho  glasses; if cold, he pulled them up. Ho  would sometimes say to tho waterman:  "John, I am going to repeat some  verses. Take care aiid remember them  the next time I go out."  When that time came, Pope would  say:  "John, where are the verses I told  you of?"  "I have forgotten them, .sir."  "John, you.are a blockhead. I must  write them down for you;"  John says that no one thought of  saying, when speaking of him, "Mr,  Pope," but that he was always calle-J  "Mr, Alexander."  A Cold Cold.  "I understand that prima donna failed to give her farewell concert because  she had a cold."  "Yes,"' answered thr manager.  "How did she contract it?"  "Well, it wasn't an ordinary cold.

An iron  founder while experimenting with mol-  teii iron under different conditions accidentally dropped a ticket into a mold.

Following up  the Idea which this fact suggested, he  procured a heatproof ink. with which  lie wrote invortedly on ordinary white  paper. This paper was introduced into  the mold before the molten Iron was  poured In. When the mold cooled the  paper had been consumed by the heat,  but the ink. which .had remained intact, had left a clear impression on the  ���������iron.  r  }fo^ratttude   that   is. extravagant   In  v;VWrds is usually economical in all other expression.

A   Custom  That   Diiteti   Bnck   to   the  Primitive Christian Church.  The custom of publishing the banns  of marriage dates back to the primitive church, for Tertuilian. who died  A. D. 240, states that warning of intended marriages was given among the  eai ly Christians.  It appears that the publication of  banns was habitual in many places  long before there wns any general law  on tho subject, since Gregory IV. (1198-  1210) speaks of the banns (from Latin  bannum, n proclamation; Anglo-Saxon,'  ban) being given out in church, according to custom. The practice was  introduced into France about the ninth  century and in 117G was enforced iu  the diocese of Paris,  The earliest enactment on the subject in England was an order made In  the synod of Westminster in 1200 to  the effect that no marriage should be  celebrated till the banns had been published in the church on three several  Sundays or feast days. This rule was  made obligatory throughout the church  by the fourth Lateran council held in  Rome in 3215. By act of parliament  banns must now be given out in England on three Sundays���������London Answers.  The death took place at Scarborough, Eng., recently of ilr. C. X.

The enormous death rate for January has opened the eyes of the people to the terrible mortality which  accompanies  neglected  colds.  Out of the 412 deaths reported in  Toronto for the month, 65 were from  pneumonia, and this is no doubt only  a small proportion of the deaths that  may be justly attributed to a neglect  to cure colds.  In the north country colds are so  common that the danger involved is  lost sight of, 'nit the results are  none the less fatal.  The prudent way is to use Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine at the first appearance  of trouble, and so guard against any  change of serious consequences.  The soothing, healing influence of  this great medicine is a balm to irri  tated and   inflamed   bronchial   tubes  a'id lungs.  it relieves the coughing, which  would otherwise tear and lacerate  I the tender linings of the air passages, loosens the phlegm, makes  breathing easy, and thoroughly cures  the cough, as well as the cold.  The demand for Dr. Chase's. Syrup  of Linseed and Turpentine has beeu  .enormous this winter, and the family-  sized bottle is becoming more popular than ever: This is only reasonable, as the 60-cent bottle contains  three times as much as the 25-cont  size.  , Do not be deceived by. imitations,-  jfor the portrait and signature of Dr.  IA.- VV.

A Spanish maiden who is in the  least attractive is always attended by  a young man. He is called her novio,  aud it is his privilege to accompany  her on her walks, though of course always with either hor mother or a maid  to play propriety. His courtship seldom ends in his becoming engaged to  the young lady, but while Jt lasts she  has to be obedient'and loyal to hlra.  If he should transfer his affections  to another fair damsel, the slighted one  has no redress, for he is quite at liberty to do so, their friendship never be-  jlng regarded in thc light of a formal  'engagement, Marriages are settled by  the heads of the two families chiefly  concerned, and until such an arrangement ls mado the young Spaniard may  he novio to as many girls as lie lilces,  one after another.

Ia the Weekly Star of the 13th  is an excellent article illustraung  the danger of the loweiing of the  teaching profes-ion and feuainizi- g  the boys of the public schools of  Caimda by failure to provide for  the adequate renumeraiion of the  btt er cla-s.-es of t achers. The  salaries paid being i-o h-vv that capable men will not accept tbe vacant situations and the pchool  board are thus compelled to appoint young inexperienced girls or  u.tn of inferior capabilities. A  teacher of this sort is only a perfunctory part of a machine, and h: B  no enthusiasm o,nA can give no inspiration. I am ple.idirg here for  the nobility of the oflic of the teacher, the trainer of young miuds.  In time it will be recognized, and  education wil- be in the hauls of  experis, who will be chopen f������-r  "tii'eir finest*, and will be paid as  those shoud be piiid,who art- the  creators of the minds of the nation,  Under our present way of running  the educational machine, tens <.f  thousands of -'hands" are employed at low wajs,es who would ,be  much moe appropriately placed if  they^were" driving-a-herd���������of���������catrie -  or engaged as domestics, The education of children must be pu , like  other piofessione, on a scien ific  basis, and not left to chance. The  profession must, be lifted into nobility in the,public mind, into re  f-pect ip social life, 'T.wp ..things  will do this, arid they may aB well  fie plainly t-tated.' One is that the  teachers themselves must he educated, thoroughly trained in 'their  profession, competent to dt-al wi.h  and develop that most de icale,  ���������sensitive, and always ind.iv.dual  thing the mind of the child. It  may be that the power of teaching  js a natural gift, and that the excellent teacher is born, and not  made. This ie, to a carvain extent,  true of all profession*, but it is alio true that industry, training, and  the right method will do wonders  in the education of a teacher, and  that any trained teacher of oidin-  ary ability is better than an un-  trained teacher of ordinary ability.  It goes without saying also that  chancter tolls in a school as much  as education. There is no tnioh  breeder of mediocrity in this continent as the mediocre tcachor.  The other thing neceseary to mine  the office of teacher and to improve  the publio school is to inoroawo tho  pay of the tHacher. We must at  trad tbo best minds into the pro*  tension. This ie even more neceg  eary in the primary t-choola than  it is in the higher education. It  has beon paid that learning should  not be degraded by put ting a pecuniary valuo upon it, that tho bun  our of the iniollectnal position  should be the main stimulus to  tiMehflrf-, pir-fo-fiors und wri'ers;  that In Germany the .gi oat scholars  the profossore of world-wide reputation are very poorly paid.
