Christmas Presents:: We have just received a fresh consignment of goods, including a large assortment of McCormick's, Perrins, Cadburys and Lowneys : Chocolates and Bon Bons In fact we have a raiipe of (roods from wliicli can be selected a suitable present for both the yonng and old (to eay nothing of the sweetheart) COME AND HAVE A LOOK ANYWAY THE Hadln-liobffts Co. m Doouy ON CORPORAL mmSIIIENT I [by p. E. DUNNE] "WpII, sir." said Mr. Dooloy. "1 soo that some school toacliors down oast liav�; been pcaitioning to be al- lowed to slug th' youriR." "How's that?" B8ked Mr. Hen-: nessy. "Well," said Mr. Dcoley, "they ; say they cant do annything with ; these tender little growths unless I they use a club. They want the ; boord iv iddycation to restore what's called corporal punishment-that is j th' lumiv licKin softie wan' that can't fight back. Says wan iv thim: 'Th' little wan� undher our care are far fr'ni bein' th' small angels that they : look. As a matther iv (act thoy are rebellyous mon.sthcrs that must be .suppressed be vigorous an' says he . -*tern measures. 'Is it right,' says he. I that us schoolmasthera shud daily ; risk our lives at th' hands iv feerocious an' tigrish inimies iv human s'ciety without havin' a chance to pound thim? Yisterdah a coolden haired imp iv jierdition placed a tack in me chair. Today 1 found a dead rat in the desk. .\t times they write opprobyous epithets (bout me on th' blaekboord; at other times crood but pinted carrycachures. Nawthin' will conthrol thim. They inrl the murdherous spit-ball. They )ull th' braid iv th' little girl. They ire baseballs through th' windows. Sometimes lumps iv ch(>win' gum are found undher their desks where they have stuck thim f'r further rhey shuffle their feet whin I'm nar-.�ous. They look around thim whin -hey think I'm not lookin'. They pass lotes grossly in.sultin* each other. Vforal suasion does no good. I have hried writin' to their parents nskin' : him to cripple their offspring, an' h' parents have come over and o(-ered to fight me. I've thried keep-n' thim afther school, makin' thim .vrite compositions an' shakin' th' milk teeth out iv thim, but to no ivail. Me opinyon is that th' av'r ige small boy is a threecherous, dangerous crather like th' Apachy In-lyan an' that th' on'y thing to do with thim is to slam him with a wagon spoke,' says he. "An' th' boord of iddycation is discussin' th' petition. It can't quite make up its mind whether Solomon wasn't right. Solomon said, accord-jn' to Hogan, spile th' rod an' save th' child. He must 'cv had a large ! fam'ly if he was annywhere near Tiddy Rosenfeldts law iv av'rages. I don't see how he cud 've spared time f'r writin' from correctin' his i fam'ly. He must 've set up nights. \ Annyhpw. th' board iv Iddycation is idi^euMin' whether ho was right or not. I don't know mesilt. All 1 I know Is that it ( was a lite inaur-i ance canvasser or a coal dealer or j something els(>, that made me illegible to be a mimber iv a boord iv id-; dycation, an' an able-bodied man, ; si.x feet tall, come to me f'r permission to whale a boy three feel tall, ; I'd say: 'I don't know whether ye are compitint. Punishing people requires special trainin'. it ain't iv'ry body that's suited f'r th' job. Ye might bungle it. Just take off ye'er coat an' vest an' step into th' nest room an' be e.xamined.' An' -in th' next room th' ambitious iddycator wud tind . James. J. Jeffreys or sonick : other akely ejBeient expert ready f'r j him �n':if h^ come back alive he'd i have a c�;rty-ficate entjtlin' him to whack anny little boy he met-except mine.
