SCHOOLBOY STRIKES.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir,—ln the suburbß of Naples recently a tourist met a number of boys on a very hot day climbing the side of a hill. Each boy was dressed in black, and carrying a large wooden cross on his shoulder—not a pretty gilded one as used at St. John's. Upon inquiry this was found to be a punishment for school misbehaviour. Now, to adopt Buch punishments here would savor of denomiaationalism. To thrash is illegal, yet some punishment is necessary, or our youngsters will break away altogether. How would it do to introduce a little mild shot drill ? The shot need not be too heavy, and the exercise would be gymnastic in a sense, tending to muscle development.—l am, etc., Old Squeebs. Dunedin, October 24.
