Relief From Home Preparation rpHE PRACTICE of having lessons prepared at home is, we siand. done away with by teach- ers in certain classes of the Central school. We ao not know if.this sys- tern is adopted throughout, but it woiiici be well that it should be. Otir opinion vrith to borne prepara- tion has been already expressed, and are to note that a move in ihe direction a! giving pupils a certain amount of reliei has been put into practical shape. It is in Hue with the modern day education, and makes ail the difference between teaching and siraplr ''learning. Be-" ,nreen two words there is much of distinction, although, one depends on the other. Still the first Is The foremost consideration, and claims the more Importance, the second may be reckoned as a product. It is this consideration which explains" the ne- eessity oi schools and teachers.. Old time education tended to put the acquiring knowledge mere en ihe pupil than oa the leacber. lie was supposed 10 draw certain lines which those under his instruction were supposed to follow: The teacher OUR POINT OF VIEW First it was cement, now it' is ele- vators.

But pedagogues have well nigh vanished, aud ihe time calls for-ttachevs in the full sense ot" the word. Tlte hours in school are loug enough for pupils boih 10 learn aud to be taught. There should be no necessity for them to spend what should be hours of relaxation in poring overt books in. preparation for the next day. 1 There is a physical side to the ques- j tion. and this aspect is now receiving a far gref-ter consideration than for- nieriyv with, so much more advantage to the success ot education. The days of "cramming" are passing away nuiel-t !y, now that its disadvantages have couie to be discoveced. The pupil's brain is not regarded as simply a stor- age for bard facts. The proper mean- ing'of'education has been grasped by J authorities, and one of the signs of appreciation is the doing away of what Is popularly termed homework. The process may be, so far.-.esperi- fetental, but we have not a doubt that the results, at any rate SQ far as the pupils of elementary and secondary schools are concerned, will be proved to be beneficial. Sir Max and George Eulas The weather is .common, the world over. Too much rain everywhere. In Ontario it has effected the- tomato crop so much that it will a failure, because there hasu't been enough sun to ripen them. The Duke of Counaught gave good advice to Fort William "and Port Ar- thur in advising them to become one gre-at ciiy at the head of the lakes.

SIR MAS AITKEX boosted Hon. Ceo. E. Foster to the skies as soon be set fooc in Canada. He was the greatest Canadian orator, etc., etc, Sir Mas Aitken heads a huge elevat- or merger in Western Canada. ;Mr. department. Trade and Com- inercp, directs ihe elevator business Lhrougn the Grain Commission. Is there any connection between the t'AO? A week or more before there was any elevator merger dreamed of the ToroQio Star figured thai Sir Mas's praise of the minister of Trade and Commerce was inspired by some other motive than devout admiration.- for George abilities. The Star made its surmise in this breezy style: Sir Mas Ai.ken is agaiu in Can- ada. Apparently he is the bearer of two important messages. One is that George Eulas Foster is the greatest orator since D-esmos- th'enes and has all-the sophisticat- ed rhetoricians of Great Britain and Ireland lashed to the mast. Tie other Is that the German menace is real and that, although It is made ill Germany, and im- ported by the Unionist newspap- ers it is all wool and a yard wide, and is by no means cheap. As Sir Max Aitken is one of those prematurely wise young men, who never opens his mouth unless he expects somebody to slip a lolly pop into it, "we are prompted to examine -motives. Why this boast of George Eulns Poster? Granted that he talks to the dosen and is an to be proud of; granted that "ho combines all the goad qualities of Cicero, Desmostheues, the Apostle Paul.

Foster is the whole cheese in the talk business, why does Sir Max Aitken ccme forward at this late hour and tell us Canadians what we have known all along? In brief, what does Sir Max Aitken. want from George Eulas Foster? What Golden Fleece has this enterprising young Golden Fleecer in mind now? On what Board of Argonauts is George E. Foster to be a director? And speaking of menaces, Sir Max Aitken has evidently been looking into the menace business. He his eye on the German plant, it possible that a men- ace merger is contemplated? Is there to be a universal reorgan- izations cf menaces, irt "which the German menace, "the Japanese menace, rhe Chinese menace, the race-suicide menace, the dear coal men-ace, the house-fly menace, the lUoyd-George land reform menace and all the other menaces, big and little, are to be pooled for the "giorjr and profit of Sir Max Ait- ken? The last Canadian menace Sir Max took a hand in was the cement menace. On tho -whole, we arc inclined, to distrust Sir Max Aitken brinsiiiR menaces- Let us keep OUT weather ejv open and watch for developments.
