Blaikie in moving that con- sideration be given to the compilation of a standard text-book on Australian geography, said there had been diffi- culty in obtaining a suitable text-book.

The de velopment of ttie child was the natural province of women, women who com bined natural instinct with training were full of ideas, initiative, resource, and tbe thoughtful weighing of the child's welfare. In Australia the development and direction of educational depart ments was almost entirely in the hands of men, and few opportunities were of fered to women. Experiments in South Australia showed that, where women had been entrusted with the direction of in fant departments, those branches had developed as never before. Many men might be excellent leaders, but the sphere for women was so much wi...
