Rupert's Land College Magazine working hours of that very morning, or how often they are postponed to a rosy, distant future. Each one of you would be very properly indignant if accused of not loving Canada, but does your love lead you to such practical results as writing well and spelling well, learning well and drilling well, thinking earnestly and speaking gently, all for Canada? Are the "head, heart and hand" which you promise to her service being trained and developed by your own patience and care, or merely by the constant driving of your teachers. Does your love for Canada ever make you give up amusements that clash with your work? - Girls naturally think a good deal, sometimes more than is wholesome, about their appearance and dress and the impres- sion that these make on others. These things are important, for they reveal your personality and express it. But if you stop at dress and appearance, as so many do, in a more or less futile attempt to imitate a droll little mannequin in "Vogue," you have learnt only the A. B.

Can you not sweeten and refine your voice and manners-your heart as well as your head--for Canada? She deserves the bestg can you give it? What are you reading, what are you writing, outside the schoolroom, for Canada? Do your letters, sent home and to your friends, show you at your best? Are they bright and well written, accurate and well expressed, written, in short, to please and interest those who receive them? More than one mother of my acquaintance has precious bundles, tied up, where the faded ink tells a happy, comical tale of ups and downs and a merry heart, that bring a smile or sigh to one's lips- in the reading.
