0710 teacher had selected for reading on suc cessive occasions chapters descriptive of human sacrifice stoning aiid torturing of human beings mur der and passages of blood thirsty tincats ami denunciations All this tho clergyman in questionthinks is wrong arguing that there is enough that is beautiful helpful and comfort ing in the Bible without reading such selections This is very true but it docs not settle the question What should decide the matter is the purpose or the reading Is it for devotional ends or is iv merely to familiarize the pupils with the Scriptures If thedesign is to inculcate a spirit of Christianity then nothing could be more useless than the reading of tho imprecatory prayers cruel laws and bloody incidents which arc found in the Old Testament On the other hand if the teachers are pursuing tho ends of educa tion and historical instruc tion these illustrations of tho sav age spirit of the ancient Jews are a highly important part of the study Certainly no good instructor would neg loct to describe the brutalities of the French revolution because they would not cultivate a proper spirit among tins students But we suspect that the Nor wich clergyman is sound in his protest because the reading of the passages of Scripture is ordinarily placed in the opening devotional exercises of the school accompanied by prayer and the singing of ahymn The reading under the chapters referred to is perhaps harmful Itis one thing to teach a child the history of the ancient Jews and rdad him that history for his Yorlt Commercial Ad SATIATOOA N May tho session of
