C TDNISON, Chicago, Ills. Our public school is keeping pace •with the times. Some time ago Prof. Doclefer introduced a five minute recess to take the place of the fifteen minute recess. The plan is an excellent one for the winter. Instead of standing still on the play ground and thus catching cold, the pupils try to improve the five minutes to the best advantage. They are thus more ready to resume their studies. Difficulties and disputes are also avoided as the time is not sufficient to lay plans and plots. Instead of visiting and getting their thoughts from school work they have only time to talk about lessons and exchange necessary articles. We believe that in a few years all city schools vrill abolish the long recess and use the short, or none.
