READY ANSWER. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 27 January 1914

READY. ANS WER. The great IRdssian soldier, Marshal Suvo roff, was in the habit of asking his men dificult questions, sometimes foolish ones, and bestowing favours on those who showed ready wit in reply. On one occasion a general of division sen' him a sergeant with despatches, at the samr time recommending the bearer to Suvoroff's notice. The'marshal, as usual, proceeded t. test him by a seffds of whimsical ques tions. "How:far is it to the moon ?" "Two of your Excellency's- forcee marches," the soldier promptly replied. "If your men began to give way in a battle, what would you do ?" "I'd tell them that justbehind the enemy's line there was a waggon-load of good things S toLeit?' S" How many fish are there in the sea ?" " Just as many as have not been caught." And so the examination went on, till Suvoroff; finding his .new acquaintance armed at all points, at length asked him, as a final poser.

All boys, especially in the south of China, are expected to go to school, but besided the mission schools there are not very many for girls. A tutor has not only to teach boys how to read and to write, but politeness forms the basis of Chinese education, and the many ceremonies belonging both to public and privatelife have to be learntat school. Very much troubleis also taken with the writing lessons, "an. elegant pencil" being thought of great con sequence, and all the mistakes made in the / writihg lesson the master corrects with red ink. Like boys of Japar. the Chinese learn their lessons out loud,.and sometimes make a great clatter in the school-room whiledoing so. But boys may not talk together in school, and to prevent their doing this the desks are. arranged some distance from one another. When a lesson is...
