Perhaps for every girl whom a Reacher is perplexed to win there Are a dozen or More boys. Therefore i will write More about boys rather than the girls but All i write will be quite As applicable to the girl As to her brother. The place to win the boy is outside the sunday schol. Most eachers seem to look As though they were fishing the school room being the Pool Aud there alone they May cast their nets. You must go Forth and Range the Woodlands you must seek your game in their native lairs. Their haunts Are Many and wide apart. You cannot sit still and did them come to you. A teachers work is Well nigh a failure then if it is confined to the paltry hour of the sunday school. You must win the Bov on ground that is natural to him. Boys Are interested in Many things they Are blessedly ready to be interested in nearly everything therefore you have chiefly to ask what you know most about like Best and can do Best. I am not urging the teacher to press into All their boys lives a truding himself upon every sport and making himself the Monitor of every interest. I am Only asking the teacher to enter enough of their lives to knew them thoroughly and get in vital touch with them. That being accomplished the work with the boy outside the school is done. It is impossible to measure the Good you can do outside of the school with your class. They will be Worth in character building and for eternity and All the Money and time it will Cost and a Hundred times More. There Are Many Little attentions you can show the boys that will count often. A Jolly word w Hen you pass them on the streets kindly messages and visits and Little presents when they Are sick.
