WHAT MUST I DO TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL

TEACHER? IF I am to become a successful teacher of the word of God I must have an intense love for that word, and that love must constrain me to work. I must also cultivate an intense love for the work. As a musician delights in his art, and counts no labour upon it thrown away, so must I delight in my class. No unworthy motive must take me to my class, and nothing less than love must keep me there. I may grow weary in the work, but I must never grow weary of it.

Again. I must prepare myself for the work. I mnst study to obtain a distinct conception of the truths I have to teach. I must possess more than an average amount of Biblical knowledge. The wider the area I cultivate for myself, and the greater the range of

my own acquisitions, the greater will be my resources, for selecting, illustrating, picturing, describing, explaining, stimulating the curiosity, exciting and sustaining the mental activity of my class. Yes; the more I know of the material I have to employ, if I possess the skill of a teacher at all, the better and more successfully can I teach.

Again. I must find out the best methods of communicating the knowledge I possess. Instruction must be adapted to the varying capacities and wants of the scholars.

The education of our scholars renders it necessary that our Sundayschool instruction should be not only clever, but clear, exact and intelligent.

I must have so thoroughly mastered my subject, that I shall be able to communicate in such a manner, not merely that I can be understood, but so that I cannot be misunderstood.

I must avoid my class saying, as one little girl expressed herself, when asked what had been said at school, `He talked and he talked, and he said how he loved us, and we all thought he was going to say something, but he didn't say nothing.' I must preach less and teach more. I must study to gain an easy mode of expression, a quick power of analysis of the hearts of my scholars, and all the various requirements of teaching power. One great requisite for pointed teaching, is to speak to my scholars and not at them. In my class I must give ceaseless and earnest work.

As an ancient allegory, 'The Choice of Hercules, tells us, the gods gave nothing good or beautiful without labour and anxiety. And one of our poets expressed the same idea, when he said
