Educational Notes# xxxx BY PROF. C. JAMES. With scissor* and papers I shall try to hold the attention of those interested in the routine of the school room. Some of the best ideas I ever got about school teaching I got from other people. Bob Taylor stole his brother Alf Taylor's speech, made the effort of his life and wrecked his broth- er's republican political aspira- tions for that campaig-n, at least. Get the ideas of other men and exactly reverse the usual order of civilization. Note, first, that the Chinese compass points to the south in- stead of the north: The men wear skirts and the women trowsers. The men wear their hair long and the women wear it short. The men carry on dressmaking and the women carry burdens. The spoken language of China women and make them your own.1 is not written and the written lan- guage is not spoken. Great men are not accidents. [ Books are read backward, and They arc the products of their j what are called footnotes are in- times, the brothers of...
