The pressuro from below, liowever, is getting too slroiig for the old-tauiiluned dominie. The man in the store and in the shop and on the farm demands that our institutions and our life will be all of a piece, and Instead ot education being what luiB been called a propafallon for living, it should be very much like living itself. Instead ot being concerned witit formal rules and definitions and abstractions. It should bo concerned partly at least with the doing ofi things.
