JONES guarantees entire freedom from pain in the extraction of teeth, which seldom exceeds 20 seconds. By the improved self-adhesive system of adapting artificial teeth, as iuvented and patented by Mr G. H. Jones, extraction of loose teeth or stumps is unnecessary, and PRIZE MEDAL TEETH (London and Paris) can he adjusted without pain in the most difficult and delicate cases, so as to defy detection, in consequence of the natural appearance of the teeth and their close adjustment to the gums. By this patented method of construction, mastication, extreme lightness combined with strength and durability, is ensured: useless bulk being obviated, articulation is obtained better on this than any other principle. Terms as moderate as the employment of the very best materials and scientific workmanship will permit. Every information given on consultation, without charge. MR G. H.

LOCAL NOTES. HOV TO CONDUCT SPELLING BEES." WE notice with very great pleasure that Spelling Bees have been introduced at Merthyr, and that a very successful one was held at the Leisure Hour only a few evenings ago. No doubt whatever can rest in anyone's mind as to the good derivable from this delightful educational exercise, and already wn venture to predict lor it a far wider success amongst us than what might be augured for the future of anv ordinary scheme. But even a Spelling Bee may be wrongly conducted, and the obvious mark aimed at missed through the want of proper administra- tion. It is or should be the object of all Spelling Bees to improve those who take part therein in a knowledge of thorough English; to teach them how to spell words in their mother tongue or that of their adoption, and to distinguish between those which while being synonymous in sound vary in formation, and are liable in daily use to prove traps for the unwary. In many instances we are sorry to say this has unfortunately not been followed out and words Of learned length and thund'ring sound and of very little use at the present day, have been chosen wherewith to puzzle the competitors. A writer in a comtemporary complains bitterly of this and not without reason, and suggests that such as "heir-hare-hair-ere-e'er-air" be given with the meanings, which would have a two-fold good effect. This is a wise suggestion, and one which is worthy of the attention of those who are helping to educate th6 people through the medium of Spelling Bees." ° COMPULSORY EDUCATION AT MERTHYR. AMONG those who have studied the first principles of the system of national education it has always been admitted as a fundamental doctrine that compulsion is a necessaay component of the whole. The reasons why this should be so are manifold and obvious indeed so clear are they that the wonder is that anyone should be found to endeavour to bolster un a 1 system which ignores or avoids a law which to common minds should form the key-stone of the whole educational struoture. The world still lies in the arms of ignorance, and as the prophets and high priests of educational progress can tell us, and as indeed we know ourselves, mankind while having merged from out the dark hatred and fear of literary and cultivated attainments, which at no distant date led them to look upon all laymen who could write and cipher, with suspicion, they still are loth to learn wisdom and eschew the paths of knowledge intuitively. Perhaps it would not matter a very great deal if this generation of men and women were allowed to become a stepping-stone in their blind ignorance for the rising race, if we were assured that existing indifference would prove an aid to future appreciation. But such a result cannot for a moment be expected, and if we could see the good work began, if we would see the lamp of wisdom which now flickers and glimmers with no certain flame in the homes of our people, burn with steady and increasing brilliancy, it is high time, we, as a nation, did something, and that with those wbose natural prerogative it is to cherish and rear the youth in his helpless and irresponsible days.' Other nations beyond sea have grasped the fact that, so deeply rooted are the seeds of prejudice and non- appreciation, this cannot be done by mere persuasion. Almost as well try to iwrsuade a nation to be virtuous! There must be a law to ensure success, and if we have decrees for the protection of life and property, why not have the same framed for the security of the mind from evil arising from ignorance and its debasing surroundings ? But we cannot have a law without a penalty. Still the sword of justice cuts two ways, and while in this instance it may be carving out a passage for the broad day.
