The teacher o f this age should have a

one o f hard w ork and small pay, in a
pecuniary sense, and many whose na-
tural talents and dispositions tit them
for teachers are unable to prepare
themselves for the brightest and liest
work; what then? W h y , the state
should come in and assist them. This
question was debated and settled as a
principal long ago, but the extent o f
the assistance an<l manner o f gi\ ing it
is still ¡i question. The states and the
general governm ent expend large
sums o f money every year in training
soldiers and keeping up m ilitary or-

Jacobinism in France, Chartism in

archism in the I'nited States to-day
is only a manifestation o f the seething
wicked thoughts o f a portion o f the
people w ithin our borders. This
wicked lawless -pirit is bred in sa
loons, in dance balls and haunts o f
sensuality and vice; it is fostered by
Sunday picnics, Sunday parades, a
general disregard o f the laws o f the
land and the teachings o ft hristianity.
And in view o f the rapid increase of
our population and the constant ten
dency o f the ignorant toward vice and
law breaking, w e may still repeat the
language ol that bright exam ple o f
