HONESTY. AMUSING SCHOOL ESSAYS. "There vfould appear to be something seriously amiss with the standard of moral training imbibed by the average child in the .Warwickshire elementary schools (says the "Daily News.") Re cently they were set an essay on honesty, arid certificates were to be awarded. The Rev. H. Temple Rob son;examined the essays. "The majority,"- he reports to the Kducalion Committee, "were deplorable from the moral point o£ view. The ma jority. quote the maxim that honesty is thejbest policy; but their interpretation ol the maxim includes nothing more than a cold, calculating policy to get on in the world, or belief that it is best to run no "risk of punishment when the chances of detection are so certain. "One child has little belief in the honesty of licr neighbors. She says that honest people are few and far be tween. One says: 'If you find a shilling you should give It to the owner, and the owner will give you back the shilling for being honest. Therefore, be hone...
