Its original and thorough system of reviews commends it to every practical teacher. A distinguishing feature of this Ariihmetic is its adaptation to the present wants of business life,

In arranging branches of study for the different grades of education, we should have regard chiefly to three things :
1. Discipline of the mind; 2. The acquisition of knowledge; 3. The relation of what is learned to the business of life.
I would premise, that in making the arrangement there should be more in common for all the pupils in the first years than in the advanced years of a course of education. At the outset all should be taught alike; but after a time there should be some difference made between those who are to have a short course and those who are to have a long one, extending perhaps through the college. The reasons for this I need not stop to detail.
Spelling, reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, and grammar are commonly considered as comprising all the elements of a com- . mon-school education. Sometimes history is included in the latter part of the course, but after so bad a fashion that it had better be entirely omitted. Natural science is very generally excluded, even in the case of those who are destined to enter college. The only study which has any relation to it is geography, and that is stripped
