- ULVERSTONE. ' Education by Post. - Tho Director of Education, Mr. W. T.-M'Coy, has given another indication of In's desire to extend the system of education to the furthest limits of agricultural settle ment. The correspondence school is a thoughtful innovation, and should les ' sen the disadvantage of. those parents who resido in remote settlements, situ ated beyond the ' statutory limits of tho .distance within which children arc expected to attend the nearest school. The difficulties which surround these children, located so far from school, is not in many instances sufficiently ap preciated, as in addition to distance tho character of the roads they have to travel sometimes makes it nnimpossi j ble task to cover the distance during our Tasmanian winter. It is hoped that every effort will bo made to bring this subject before tho people and that the parents concerned will take advan tage of this-new method to secure for their children the full benefit nccrning irom this means of...

But the point about the indemnity is this-in what form is it to bo paid? Gold and silver aro im passible, beyond ono amount of £150, 009,000, wiping out practically all Germany's coinage. She has some mer cantile shipping and securities .private ly held. She may be made to give bonds for tho amount, but how is the interest to be paid? It can only be in goods.
