the evening. Prof. Homer is a musician him

will be reduced to a mere nominal sum.

In continuing rny subject from your last
issue I would add, a good teacher needs a good
physical constitulion. If his strength to per
form does not second the knowledge and the
will to do, , the latter valuable requsites lose
their value for lack of executive force. Mus
cular energy often becomes a most potent ally
of mental perception in the conduct of the
schools. Exigencies often arise where brawn
counts more than brains toward the success of
the term. If a teacher is dyspeptic, he is apt
to be crabbed and morose and despondent,
and the school grows dyspeptic too, and some
times decidedly billious. A cheerful demeanor
is a wonderful help to the teacher, and w ill
carry him successfully over many a rough
place, but he cannot be cheerful when he is
sick, nor can the brain work with the accus
tomed clearness and energy when suffering
from sympathy with any other organ of the
body that is disordered. Physical courage is
a good thing to have in conducting a school.
When it is clearly understood that the teacher
has the nerve and the will to maintain his con
trol of the school at all hazards, there is seldom
any occasion for exercise of force. When
pater families sends word to the teacher: "If
my children are to be punished at school, I'm
coming to school too," it has a happy effect to
inform pater families that if he chooses to come
to school, the teacher will most cheerfully en
deavor to instruct him "in those branches re
quired by law to be taught the children and
youth of the state," but that he will be expec
ted to take his seat and behave as the rest of
scholars do. Teachers have rights as well as
parents and scholars, and they should not only
be sufficiently familiar with them to maintain
them properly, but have the stamina to do it.,
When an indignantparent interrupts a school
m session to berate the teacher because a child
has complained of punishment, it is well for
the teacher to know and the parent to learn,
that if the child is of the age required by law
to attend school, the parent has no more ab
solute control over that child during school
hours than if it was in prison for crime.
Teachers should he neat arra cleanly in their
dress and person. If there is in this universe
anywhere a place for a frowsy woman with un
tidy clothes, hair looking as if combed by a
tornado, and a generally "massed-up" appear
ance, it certainly is not in the schoolroom.
Disorder in this regard means disorder in
school, and disorder in school means anarchy
Marked personal peculiarities and eccentri
cities in a teacher are obstacles to success.
While these cannot be avoided, and may not
destroy the effect of peculiar capabilities, they
should be overcome or suppressed by the
teacher as much as possible. In their thought.
lessness or malice, children seize eagerly upon
any such pretext that can operate to place a
teacher at a disadvantage in any way. Espec-
ially does the failure of any sense of the teacher
unfit him for his work. If he is so near sight
ed that he cannot see all over the school room,
or is growing blind, so that his sight is serious
ly impaired, he has no proper place in the
schoolroom. If he is deaf he cannot perserve
good order in school. . The average "small
boy" has not yet approximated sufficiently to
an angel of light, that he can withstand the
temptation to "raise Cain" just once every day
and that once will be all the time if the teacher
is too blind or deaf to detect his mischief,
any gaudy or unbecoming article of apparrel
worn by a teacher, or crudeness or vulgarity
of manner, will te at once detected by the
sharp eyes oOhe children,, always quick to
perceive, and doubly so where by such discov
ery the disposition for mischief may gain chance
But if the instincts of the lady or gentleman
are lacking in the teachers, it is not of much
use either to read Chesterfield, or to attempt
to teach. As the spring of all gentlemanly
conduct is unselfishness, the conduct of the
true teacher will be characterized by kindly
feeling and uniformly by courteous bearing tow
ard scholar and parent, regardless of wealth,
influence, intelligence "race, coloror previous
condition." If Mrs Lofty keeps a carriage
and servants twice a score, and Hon. Mr.
Bullion is a millionaire, they and their children
are entitled to precisely the same consideration
from the teacher, as plain John Smith who
works for a dollar a day, or Bridget O'Flaher
ty who takes in washing and their children are.
Indeed if any one is entitled to more consider.
alion than any other, it is the little deformed
boy or girl whose soul, too big for its body,
has crowded the poor dwarfed frame all out of
shape in its efforts to expand. The law of at
traction and repulsion is not confined to ma
terial things. If the pupils find the teacher
takes a firiendly interest in them, it will be re
turned in kind, and they will more readily be
come interested in the work. If the teacher
possesses the happy faculty of making the pur
suit, of knowledge seem interesting, and re
lieving the dull routine questions of the text
books by the introduction of facts of interest
connected with and growing out of the lesson,
it will greatly relieve the tedium of his own
work and add largely to its effectiveness. A
still greater gain is made if he comprehends
that education is a drawing but not a filling up
process, that his work is not so much to make
plain to the preception, and fix in the memory
of the child certain facts, as haying learned
those facts, to make them the stepping stones
to the knowledge of other facts, and especially
to make the facts known the basis for thought,
reason, reflection, and strenghten the judg
