Two Hints to Teachers.
1. OH Optnimj Exercises.— lt is cus
tomary in about nine tenths of the schools
(f the county, for the teacher, either alone
or accompanied by the scholars, to read a
chapter in the Bible. This practice is al
together commendable, and it would be
gi atilying if it were adopted in every school.
However, there arc different modes of con
ducting this exercise, some of which seem
to nic unwise and really useless. To the
majority of scholars, the close reasonings
of Paul's Epistles are not very useful or
edifying, because their profound character
places them beyond the comprehension of
children, not to say of very many persons
of mature years.
I think the teacher should use his best
judgment in this matter, and have the
scholars read only such portions of Scrip
ture as are, in the main, easily understood,
and from which rules or suggestions for
their conduct can readily be derived. In
order to render this exercise properly use
ful, it seems Lest for the teacher to call the
attention of his pupils to the lesson taught
in the Scripture read, ar.d to make a brief,
pointed application of it to the incidents of
every-day occurrence in the schoolroom,
and in the intercourse of children and
youth with the world. It is well to shun
these two extremes : first, going through
the exercise as a mere form, of no real use
or interest j and second, regarding a!! parts
of the Bible equally profitable for the in
struction of the young, and therefore refu
sing or neglecting to use one's good judg
ment in the matter.
J n some schools the teacher is wont to
follow the Scripture reading with prayer,
and this also is entirely commendable, if
it be done in the right spirit and manner.
01 course, prayer in a schoolroom is essen
tially the same as prayer in any other
place, and one spirit should characterize it
everywhere—a spirit of thankfulness, hu
mility, penitence, and trust; but the form
and extent ola prayer should be deter
mined, in u great, degree, by the place and
circumstances. It should be appropriate,
should have direct reletence to the persons
for whom it is offered. So in the school
room, it seen s fitting that a prayer be brief;
simple, so that pupils may intelligently
though silently join in it; utterly truthful,
so that they may feel that in this exercise
their teacher is thoroughly sincere, free
from the slightest taint of hypocrisy.
The singing of two or three verses of a
hymn is very salutary in its influence, and
should be practised whenever possible, the
teacher selecting such hymns as his pupils
can understand and sing with healthful
These opening exercises, or any one or
two of them, need consume but little time,
if rightly conducted ; and their influence
upon both teacher aud pupils cannot fail to
be highly, beneficial, to fit all for a more
hearty and successful performance of the
day's duties, and for greater delight in
2. The Teacher's Manner before his
Pupils. —If a teacher can succeed in giv
ing his pupils these two distinct impres
sions,—that he is certainly master in the
schoolroom, and that he is a genuine man,
—he has gained the victory; if he fails in
either of these respects, he is hopelessly
deleated from the start.
It is absolutely necessary that a teacher
be, and feel himself, sure of success in es
tablishing and preserving good order, in
carrying into effect whatever regulations he
deems requisite to the highest prosperity
of the school. Let him give the subject
of school government und management so
much and so careful previous study, that
he may be prepared for all kinds of emer
gencies, ready to meet any perplexity, sure
that he knows what to do next. Let his
manner be such that scholars shall instinct
ively kpow him as their master, as one not
to be trifled with, as one who fully knows
what he is about aad what ho intends to
have them do —in a woid, as master of the
But when this wholesome impres-ion has
been produced, let the teacher not fail to
show himself thoroughly' a man, in ability
and desire to instruct, in hearty interest in
the progress and joy of his pupils, in sym
pathy with them in the trials of their pa
tience, their little troubles and (Jelights. —
Let him show that while he has a slrong
hand to restrain, he has a willing hand to
assist; while his eye is sharp to detect
wroug-doing, he is quick to see diligence,
obedience, and generous conduct; while
he can use sternest tones in reproof of
malice or meanness, his voice has most en
couraging tones for the faithful and merit
orious. In fine, let the teacher seek to
show his pupils the style and character of
a manly man. S-

The Flying Foxes of Ceylon.
| There are more singular inhabitants of
Ceylon trees than monkeys. The flying fox
es hang from them like fruit. The flight of
these creatures is directed by means of a
membrane attached to the inner-side of
| each of the hind legs, and kept distended
I at the lower extremity by a projecting bone,
just as a fore and-aft sail is distended by
a "gaff. "Over the entire surface of the
thin membrane of which they are formed,
sentient nerves of the utmost delicacy are
distributed, by means of which the ani
mal is enabled during the darkness to di
rect its motions with security, avoiding ob
jects against contact with which, at such
times, its sight and other senses would be
insufficient to protect it." By day they
suspend themselves from the highest branch
es of the silk cotton trees, hanging by
the claws of the hind legs, with the°head
turned upward, and pressing the chin a
gainst the breast. At sunset, taking wing,
they hover, with a murmuring sound, occa
sioned by the beating of their broad mem
braneous wings, around the fruit trees, on
which they feed till morning, when they re
sume their pensile attitude as before.
J hey hang in such prodigious numbers,
that the branches often give way beneath
their accumulated weight. They fly in
clouds as thick as bees or midges.
"When at rest or asleep, the disposition of
the limbs of the flying fox is most curious.
At such times, it suspends itself by one
foot only, bringing the other close to its
side, and thus it is enabled to wrap itself
in the ample fold of its wings, which envel
op it like a mantle, leaving only its up
turned head uncovered. Its fur is thus
protected from damp and rain, and to some
extent its body is sheltered from the sun.
As it collects its food by means of its
mouth, either when on the wing or when
suspended within reach of it, the flying
fox is always more or less liable to have
the spoil wrested from it by its intrusive
companions be ore it can make good its
way to some secure retroat in which to
devour it unmolested. In such conflicts
they bite viciously, tear each other with their
teeth, and scream incessantly till, taking
to flight, the persecuted one reaches some
place of safety, where he hangs by one
foot, and grasping the fruit he has secured
in the claws and opposable thumb of the
other, he hastily reduces it to lumps, witli
which he stuffs his check pouches till they
become distended like those of a monkey; '
then suspended in safety he commences to !
chew and suck the juices, rejectinf the :
refuse with his tongue.
Curiosities of Nature.
Among the papers published in costly
style by the Smithsonian Institute at
\\ ashington, is one on the microscopic
plants and animals which live on and in
the human body. It describes quite a
number of insects. The animal, which
produces the disease called itch, is illustra
ted by an engraving halt an inch in diam
eter, which shows not only the ugly little
fellow's body and legs, but his very toes,
although the animal himself is entirely
invisible to the naked eye. When Lieu
tenant Berryman was sounding the ocean,
preparatory to laying the Atlantic Tele
graph, the quill at the end of the sound

dried, became a powder so fine that on
rubbing it between the thumb and finger,
it disappeared in crevices of the skin. "On

numbered 350 vessels, with 150,000 men.
At the battle of Cannat, there were of
the Romans, including allies, SO,OOO foot

Italy, a little before Hannibal's time,
was able to sond into the field nearly 1,-
Semiramis employed 2,000,000 men in

A Soldier's JVift Objecting to an Ex
change.—A private of the Twentieth Mas
sachusetts regiment was taken prisoner at
Ball's Bluft last fall, and confined at Salis
bury, North Carolina. Some weeks since
a friend called upon his wife with the assu
rance that her husbrnd would probably be
exchanged for a rebel then in our hands.
"I won't have him," cried the woman in
alarm ; "I love Tom, and I won't have him
exchanged; I don't want a rebel husband."
The friend corrected the poor woman's mis
apprehension ; the absent husband was
finally released, and she learned that for
once "exchange was no robbery."
"State of Matrimony" has at
last been bounded and described by some
Western student, who says: It is bounded
by hugging und kissiDg on one side, and
cradles and babies on the other side. Its
chief productions are population, broom
sticks, and staying out late o'nights. It
was discovered by Adam and Eve, while
trying to find a northwest passage out of
Paradise. The climate is sultry till you
pass the tropics of house-keeping, when
squally weather sets in with such power as
to keep all hands as cool as cucumbers, —

Preferring Drowning to Going to
School—A curious case of suicide occurred
at Niagara Falls a few days since. A
little boy named Armstrong, aged nine
years, was averse to attending school. His
parents ordered him to go to school with an
elder brother, but he steadily refused, and
while his brother was trying to compel him
to go, he stated that if he was compelled
to go to school he would jump into the ca
nal and drown himself. Suiting the action
to the word, he started on a run to the ca
nal, and before he could be caught, plunged
in and was drowned.
