S IN SCHOOL WOftK, One (>f the great desideratutns in the educational system of the present day is caused by lack of thoroughness. Pupils have an idea that the sooner they are able to take up advanced work, especially such studies as belong to our nigh school curriculuins,the sooner will their education be completed. They huixy through their readers, omit part of the atithmetic, confine grammar to parsing^ and drop spelling entirely. Th» thought in the mind of the pupil is graduation and honors. The important events in the lives of individuals have been increased to four instead of three, viz: birth, graduation, marriage and death. What is the result? Why is it that many students find it necessary, after entering college, to take up. elementary studies? They must spend the time and energy of young manhood or young womanhood in seeking tlurt which by proper teaching should have been accomplished in youth. Require thoroughness at all hazards and our college preparatory schools will soon be of the past. Again, patrons and parents often advise their children to pursue only those lines that are practical. This age is a business age and therefore get a business education. Admitting that this line of work should receive primary attention, I believe that it should not receive the lion's share. It is not the knowledge that is remembered that makes a great mind, but the culture and training it pos- esses. Because a mechanic has accomplished a certain result, it is no sign that lie can perform the same again without proper training. How many of our bright lights of the nineteenth century remember any of their Greek or Latin after they left the college campus? They never expected to use it. They got what was of more value, broad views, active imaginations, deep thoughts and a resolute determination. Let us put up our narrow ideas and use as a substitute broad ones. CYMEN. Near at Hand'.

"To be, or not to be—that is the question." To be or not to be. More than this mere phrase is required for the full expression of the "question"in the speaker's mind. The proposition may be completed thus: Is it best for man to be, or (is it best for man) not to be. This is a compound sentence. The first member is—It (for man to be) is better,'the second—-It (for man not to be) is better. Or is the connective. This proposition is the subject of the entire assemblage of words. Of the problem herein expressed the assertion was really made, the less cumbrous that only temporarily represents the sentence. In the proposition—that'(to be or not to be) is the question— that is the subject of the verb, is the question is the predicate of the sentence. The subject is modified by—to be, or not to be. It has no grammatical connection with that, but is a "logical" adjunct. The pronominal adjunct that may be considered a contraction of tlutt question; however-, that, to my mind, ultimately represents to be or not to be. Welchs' term "pro. sentence"might in this case be applied to the word, CEUA. POUTLAND, Dec. 2.—The schools in this neighborhood have all commenced, with E. B. Eddy at Buffalo Forks, Miss Myrtle Hunt in the Manley school,Mrs. Morgan at Sec. 8, and Cliff Stockwell in the Stone school. Miss Hose McNeil, of Portland, is •wielding the birch in the Peters school in Ramsay. Miss Winnie Gannon teaches the Mousel school, and T. Gannon the Winter school, both of Ramsay. The following example is taken from Davises' Intellectual Avit-.hrnoHo' A man'liaving a goose, pig, and calf, was asked the value of them. He said that the three were worth 30 shillings, that the goose was worth t as much as the pig, and the calf H times as much as the goose and pig together. What was the value of each? Please solve. _ M. How it must cut the Democratic end of the county to be paying their first grade teachers $30.00 per month, at this dread time, too, when there is such an enormous protective tariff on wool. The tears roll unbidden down my cheeks, fall upon the floor and splash up against the wall, and the roar and gurgle as they run through the cracks make me homesick and I long to ny to theRepublican end of the county where they pay their teachers $43.00 month, and count out gold to them instead of county warrants and faultfinding, Hands red with their own blood, the Bepnblicans run hither and thithev voting for protective tariff and the "MeKinley bill," paying $43.00 per month to their teachers, building good substantial houses, cultivating then: lands and becoming independent. They have no $me to spend holding meet* ings to cut down the wages of the teachers that are teaching their children how to manage their work and St an education. The result is that in e north end of the county old and young are better fitted to be citizens ot the Uni&d Slates than they are in the "teachers' starving" community below. SUZERAIN.
