Some people there are, doubtless, to whom it conies naturally and by in Ktinct to do the right thing at the right time and place; but they are few in number. Then, again, some people are by nature cooler-headed than their neighbors, and do not scream and otherwise become use less just when their services are re? quired.

Prom the earliest age children fh ?uld be taught self-ooutrol, and i lie instinct of trying to remedy any mistake or accident they may en? ...
