The Empire number of the Now Zealand School Journal, as is eminently suitable, impresses upon all ages tho fineness of the Empire spirit, as contrasted, perhaps, with the "little New Zealand" spirit which declares, "I am loyal to my country." without considering that what ia, first necessary is the big outlook into the world of Umpire. To teach children that it1 is the Empire which keeps us, and not we that keep, the Empire, is the tone of the number of the journal just issued. This would seem to be a lesson which has been painfully lacking in the past teaching, and it is well that the mistake, should be rectified before it is too late. Tho sentiment of the British flag ; th« ways in which the smallest can help the Empire; the games of the Empire; stories of heroism —all are present, with, some reprinting of old friend Sinbad, and a good article for the older boys of the achievements of Daniel Boynington. The wonderful story of Sir Ernest Shackleton makes good reading, and the accompanying portrait is particularly fine. The story of Italy is continued, and good, stirring poems embellish each number.
Miss Bawghan, a member of tho Prisons Board, wjio spoke to the Women Citizens' Association on the subject of "Prisons Reform and After Care," drew pointed attention to an incident that ca-me under her notice recently in Timaru, says a, Southern exchange. After her meeting there an employer came and told her that, ho had given work to two men not long released from, gaol, but two constables camo about, and in their zeal made things so hot for the men that they both left the day before pay d,ay. She had heard before of this kind of thing from prisoners, but sho did believe it was really done. It was si thing that never should bo done. (Applause.) Of cdur&e, she understood that the police felt it their duty to protect tho community, but the most they should dp in a case like that would bo to go quietly to the employer and1 make euve that ho knew about the men he had engaged. But to do as had been done in this case did not give tie men a fair chance. A presentation of a handsome bouquet was made last evening to Lady Hunter by Mrs. Inness (aged 72), on behalf of the Early Settlers' Association. The meeting of the association was held at Dustin's rooms, and was a particularly pleasant one.
