this there are lumber of contributlni Oriee a Always phy once a teacher nerer teems to be about the way U That teaching teeme to be profession from which people tend to rather than remain In 11 lor life time or simply I think gtatistlcs will support the state that the large majority of teacheri regard teaching as a tern forary A convenient and not too difficult opportunity to put off or prepare for the more serious bneinesi of life or In the case of the fair to purchase a Thoee Who Are I oan remember frequently meet Ing lady teachen who teemed to me nature and temperament JUst out as the saying for My natural expectation to find in them the consecrated one whose end and aim wai who looked upon It IB a a genuine life and worthy of some sacrifice of personal likes or comfort for the attainment of excel In every case I have received a rude shock when by some casual word or expression it has been let fall that the real alms and deeper motives of life lay quite outside of thsir With womert of whatever age or attraction or lack of them marriage seems to loom con stantly before the mind as the great the in this province at are generally looking for to the ownership of a farm and j independence or If not they are preparing for the i ed The men teachers will say and with that teaching does not offer enough for a ttah to contemplate staying by If for a life Far and away the largest number of teachers and it their mott insistent call is wife and we cannot quarrel With that It Is a fact that tha ten Hency to regard teaching ns an adven titious occupation does a great deal to prevent professionalism woman An added force pulling in the same direction la the generally accepted theory that when a woman marries she automatically I becomes not a less or more than a teacher depends per haps on but the feel ing Is certainly strong that she be comes something While it Is true that marriage and attendant motherhood remove a woman from the active ranks for a there is no reason why such women should not be regarded as off on leave or some such temporary I am firmly of the belief that recog nition of married women as still silent partners In the teaching would tend to bring them back ripened in years and exper Charles Kingley may not have been the first to say but he has said most emphatically that teach ers of children should be persons Who had had children of their Should Not Be Lost Certain it is because they have children of their is no reason why they should be lost to the A good mother or good father other things being will make the best The single women in the profession should present no obstacle to this change of by reason of their own future being favorable affected by Another Another reason for lack of cohe sion and loyalty in the profession in this province is the absence of any system of whereby training and experience are equitably reward ert H is frequently the now that a normal school the highest salary in a district where older are but this Is simply there ao set of standards In tbe pres ent scarcity of teachers K sort ot eatoh as catch and the deflT take toe ak regards teachers Since the department goes so far as to

remove the profession from political A solution devoutly to be prayed but It would no doubt find for the devil never ttcks advo It is quite a truism to speak ot tenching ns the noblest profession n the but all teachers who can afford to bo quite honest we cant all of will not fail to admit that things are at a startling amount ot old wire pulling Is necessary to land a teaching noble in a seat ot some scale of promotion such as every up to date factory uses would no doubt ndd dignity and sta bility to the It oan scarcely be called a Trustee The trustee system which was no doubt devised at a peculiarly demo cratic ia ona ot tbe most cumbersome pieces of civic chinery yet Is In re ference solely to the hiring of A centralized bureau cratic control would undoubtedly add to the red tape of the no doubt a cheaper grade ot stationary would have to be but a change of troubles Is stimulating and I know I speak formany of my brethren when I say that any system would be welcomed whereby a teacher could know where he was or approxi mately where he ought to toe after ten years in the As a very successful and popular principal said to me last year on voluntarily leaving the profession which so greatly needs him It may be the noblest but it is the most ungrateful jod a man can hold I submit that the nobility of H Is In the actual and satisfying ex ercise of the teaching the
