[354] seraph,with a pure English accent and a sweet English manner, teaching a class of boys and girls, the boys as tall and some of them nearly as old as herself.

“Do you like the method of mixed classes-having boys and girls in the same room, competing in the same lessons?”

“Yes,” replies the young lady, “ I find the mixed system better for both sexes than the separate system. The boys strengthen the girls, and the girls soften the boys.” .

“Have you no trouble with these big fellows?”

“No; the bigger boys are easier to control than the lesser ones; they have more sense at fifteen than at ten, and feel more shame in doing wrong; especially in the presence of a lady. The sense of chivalry comes in.”
