SCHOOL LIFE IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 6 January 1914
SOCHOOL LIFE IN CYIINA. SVery much is thbught of education in China, and if a poor boy takes literary hdnours he can fill as high a position as thoigh he were a boy of rank. All boys, especially in the south of Cbina, are expected to go to satool, but besided the mission schdols there are not very many for girls.

Very much trouble is also taken with the writing lessons, "an elegant pencil" being thought of great con sequence, and all the mistales made in the writing lesson the master corrects with red ink. Like boys of Japan. the Chinese learn their lessons out loud, and srometimes make : a great clatter in the school-room while doing so. But boys may not talk together inschool, and to prevent their doing this the desks are arranged some distance from one another. When a lesson ...
