The season is approaching for the

kinds best adapted; are of sufficient

m:irkable instance of- this took plac'e

fact well, known :by ilia more intelli=
farmers in that country that the
extensive Iceland plain Which +Tiech-

Mountains contains aq lime or

materials 7*ere at stated times appli

(Irish). or about sixty bushels to the
Eklish acre. , After the fainitie. the
poverty and want of beast to (16

those' who yeinained on, their farms,
imsubdued by , the -famine and pesti-
Icnce, to Omit the usual application,
. of lime to the soil, and the conse
quence was that, instead of twenty
barrels per Irish acre; the yield was

: reduction of from two l thirds to three

' Dr. Lincoln, of Boston,: speaks as fol.
laws : The: actual derangements of the
nervous functions whichtare commonly_
believed to be produced by improper in
fluences at school, are the following: First,
a group collectively termed-neurasthenia,
e - emposed of debility and general depres
sion, dyspepsia, sleeplessness, iniabOity,
headache ; then nose-bleed, a symptim of
congestion which seems • quite rare in
Ameriea'm compared with some parts of
Europe ;; then chorea, or 'St. Vitus's
dance; a`disease of childhoodproper; then
neuralgia, hysteria, irritable spine or spi
nal anaemia and menstrual anomalies.
This list was given in a printed'circular
or inquiry issued to physicians, and from
their answers it appears that little re-.
mains to be added to the list: But I
must add that several correspondents
have of their own accord suggested Other
evils Of more or less importance, as insan
ity, injary to the urinary organs from
long confinement, deformities of the chest
and spine, and typhoid fever. Dr. Lin
coln then passed to the consideration of
the first 'general division of the subject,
the question i "How may school influen
ces dh-ectly benefit the nervous system?"
In the first place, he said, the school
may provide for a reasonable degree of
physical exercise, , which every scholar
should perforin unless excused •by .hiS
physician. In the next place he mention
ed fresh air and other hygenic essentials,
and then addressed himself to the inqui
ry. Are the work and discipline of
whiiuis beneflicial per se? After discuss
ing this briefly, he answered: Mental oc
cupation. like all other occupation, Is
therefore good; or a: least it has a. pre-
Snniption in its favor. But the value of
. this work is vAstiS , enhanced by the meth-.
odical way in which,a good school en : fore...
es its perforinltnce. •
It is good for the body because it is bod
ily work; Because its such it farthers the
process of cheinical transmutation and
hastens the renewal of tissue. Our teach
ers, in many cases, deserves the greatest
credit for their judicious flrmneis in res
training from overwork as well as in re
quiring the full" amount of work. It is
the business of an educator to see, first )
that the faculties- essential to well-being
are developed; the muscles of respiration,
through singing, dancing, running and
childish athletic sports; the muscles of
the will; by similar methods and perhaps
gymnlisti; the inteligence, by school
instruction of. various Birds; but while
doing this he should bear in mind those
traits of childhood which are most irre
pressible, and, should both guide them .
and be guided by them. ' • '
Dr. Lincoln then suggested the, impor
tance of hapinnss ar, a source a- health.
Pleasurable sensations, he said, are im
parted by all efforts- made willingly, if
within our powers. = The scholar has that
source of pleasure constantly if he is well
managed. lie is interested, and interest
is the chief facto,' in happmes* Asking
then the question, what hartn is done
through injudicous schooling? he answer
ed, that if mental enjoyment does good to
the system, the sensation of inadequacy
to one's task is a source of acute *suffer
Representing the evils of over-working
school children, he said, we are called iip
on 'very strongly to: condemnall points in
the management of schools Which give
rise to anxiety, apprehension, in short,
exaggerated feeling of any sort in the
minds-of scholars. The " effects of over
work arc developed either by excess in
quantity or by a monotonous strain of the
faculties in one direction. 'll6 , child's
brain soon tires," says Weit, l .."and the

AN EXTRACT FROM .THE REPORT OF THE
BUREAU OF LABOR AND STA.TISTICA. .
Children roust, •when brought Under in
struction, be taught those things which
will benefit them in the common affairs of
life. But what are:they? Clearly these :
1. The use of language, that they may
know how to think, and give expression
to thought. These they will . attain by
reading, and by exercises/ in dictation,
letter-writing, and composition. Spelling
will come in here.
The use of the eye, the ear, and the
hand, l both as.aids in mental operations,
and in 'facilitating the business of life.
This use they will acquire 'by writbig,
drawing, and music; and most industrial
3. How to observe, to reflect, to reason
upon a subject, and to atquire great
truths. Here.will come in an' enlarged
system of object-lessons, and the great
facts of earth and sky, as illustrated in
topical, and physical geography, akrono
my, and the elements of natural philoso
4.- How to transact business. here will
come in mental and written arithmetic,
simple methods of keeping accurate ac
counts, thei‘science of forms, as taught by
geometry' irt the simpler elements. ,
5. The discipline and formation of char
acter. And here comes in the subject of
morality, of duties to God and man, being
the great precept of Christian morals—
here the influence of the history of nations
and of individuals, • as instruction and
warning—history in its. true signification;
civil, social, industrial, rather than war
like and of the hero-worship.
6. The physical discipline of the body.
And here comes in a variety of exercises,
gymnastics, military and. other—aiding
physical development, and preparing for
industrial, personal labor.

Humph ! I never heard of such a thing
in my life ! I don't believe iri it. I don't
believe there is any good -in it, .nor any

of the school they've alrea4Hly : got, I don't
believe there would be no need at all of
their gr-a-d-in school. Nonsense ! What
use can they make of their high edication

can sell any more butter, nor raise any

I never went to school more ;than two or
