The Tbue Oedee of Studies. By Thomas Hill. New York : Putnain's Sons. This volume is evidoutly the outgrowth of long continued thought and earneat purpose, and will be read with more than casual interest by educators who are fully alive to the responsibility of their position, and aware, as such always are, of the dêfeots in themselves and the systems under which they labor. Treating especially of the true time and mode of beginning brauchea of study, not, as the author says, " irom want of interest in the studies of the high school and college, but from a conviction that he who would produce the highest educational effect must begin with the youngest pupils," it yet touches the truest development of intellect, heart, and soul. One or two defectivo results in our present system, as pointed out by Mr. Hill, can not fail to be acknowledged by mauy teachers. Arithmetic, for example, ' pursued piïncipally as a premature drill for the reason," leaves not a few of our scholars with but misty ideaa of it ae a science, and so Iittle use of it as an art that " the practical end of learning to cypher is lost." The tendency, too, to teach the child to " valué words above ideas " and " withdraw his mind from any healthy interest in things about him," by the use of the " most modern style of text books," in which " each Bubject is expanded so fully that the child who studies his school text books has no time left in which to play, much less any time to study natura," is clearly indicated. Fortunately, Young America is not so oasily " withdrawn," and persista in taking a pretty lively interest in matters in general, still the maimor of training which should develop and direct his quiok observation, instead of repressing it, ai is the case in too many school-rooms, is fervently to be desirecl. Eegarding "all poasible objects of human thought " as " comprised under one or another of the five heads : Mathematics, Physics, History, Psychology, and Theology," and regarding these branches to be logically depeudent " in the order in which " he has " placed them," Mr. Hill traces each idea in its natural sequence through this order, in which he claims " such a mutual inter-dependence that the lower branchos are continually suggested by the higher." " Impracticablo," as Mr. Hill hiraself acknowledges the l'atter part ot his curriculum to be, " for scholars who have not had the earlier training there prescribod," there are many suggeatious that will be of value to teachers, and we should like to seo some of his ideas embodied in the schools of the future.
