I HEADMASTERS' INFLUENCE. The appointment of Canon Lyttelton to the headmastership of Eton suggests the interesting inquiry how far the influence of a great schoolmaster is calculated to produce men who will be assured of distinction in after years. The subject has many ramifi- cations, and we often find that the most successful pupils, from the captains of small schools to senior wranglers, fail altogether to obtain renown when they come to engage in the keen competition of the world. But while it sometimes happens that an eminent man has been taught by an unknown school- master, at the same time it appears much more frequently that the winner of fame has proceeded from a famous school pre- sided over by an exceptionally able man, such as Dr. Arnold, whose pupils were never tired of acknowledging the debt which they owed to the greatest of headmasters. Carrrying the subject a step further, we find among eminent divines,, of the present day, undoubted evidence of the advantage which they derived from being trained for Holy Orders by Dr. Vaughan, and in every religious body there are outstanding men who ascribe their success in large measure to those by whom they have had the pri- vilege of being instructed.
