ffcpra ®itwss, Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17. TUB boast of many an elector, both at the recent Parliamentary election for the dis trict, and at the last civic election for the Municipality, was the evident; signs of tho influence of sectarian bodies being on the wane, with respect to political and other public questions, in which hitherto their in fluence lias been to a remarkable-and in some instances, an undesirable degree en countered. Tlio sectarian bodies alluded to, have not failed, where practicable, to show thoir'power by guiding, or, iiT'a manner, forcing, their members to exercise their franchise in the direction which the leaders of those institution]? desirod that that-privil ege: should -bo extended.

JUDGEMENT AND FORETHOUGHT IN THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 February 1883

JUDGEMENT AND FOItETITOUCi HT IN THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN. IN a very thoughtful aud suggestivo inquiry as to the reasons why " promising " chil dren so seldom turn out as, parents and .friends anticipate, the Philadelphia Public Lcdi/or discovors a potent cause of failure in the man which parents will find worthy of serious consideration. Aftor speaking of the more familiar ways of spoiling children by unwise management ^or improper training, the paper says : The truth is, we need more freethought and less self-indulgence in the training of our youth. We please ourselves too much, and study their future too littlo. It is so easy and pleasant to gratify our own vanity or ambition by stimulating and exhibiting them in points whore they excel; it is so hard and comparatively tamb^, to exercise thorn" in what they are deficient, and to foster, thou- most meagre abilities. Yet, un til educators acquire the necessary self-con trol and patience to do the latter; until they can work, quiet...

AN AUTUMN MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 24 February 1883

AN AUTUMN MEMOKY. The November sun was stealing betwoen the daintily embroidored leaflets, and playing on tho woodland rivulet. The golden-rod along the brookside was now and then disturbed by a flight of some wild bird, and tho su i macs in their cardinal fezzes looked like so many nodding Turkish sentinels. A glorious but brief period when n deli cate vale of haze hangs around tho wood, and the indelicate politician hangs around the candidato to negotiate the sale of his< vote ; when the partridge drums tip in tho tree, and the suspendor peddler drums up in tho northern part of Now York ; when the honest fanner works the harvest field, and the young lady works the Christmas slippers for the olerymaa; when pootic damosels pluck the languid ferns, and 'the unpoetic housewife plucks the languishing thanks giving turkey. .
