concert their teacher would not be disturbed First he shows himself was deaf And dumb buti who had been at the school for the little boy a picture of an animal a cat for instance and at i a year The newcomer was only 6 years old ana naa not yet learned to talk with his fingers The language of natural gestures and signs was their only means of communication It is not A language in the same sense aa the finger talking or the regular system of signs which is taught in the school and ln whose terms one can tell the narrative of a balloon ascension or repeat an Ibsen play but its vocabulary was expansive enough ifor one little youngster to tell the other little youngster a good deal about the building and what went on in all the rooms As they went by the open door of a classroom where some blind supiht had just been reciting the newcomer looked in and his Inquisitive eyes lit upon one of the Braille typewriters He pointed ta the new object and then looked at his guide The Joe eur to read It said very plainly What is thatr A fcnw Inuestlon to answer without verbs and nouns you think but the young guide waa at a Ipsa for only half a minute Then he hut his eye so tgni ivvu uv Ji drummed hard on the Uble with all his fingers That meant 3 is a typewriter that the blind bpya and girls use And a iK quick smile ot InteUigenoe told him tbat he was understood althouith the new lltUe

all mean the same thing and after he has been there a few months he will be able to write on the board It is a cat or a dog or a horse as the case may be But It will be1 more months before he begins
