SYDNEY, N.S.W. "'The Parents' National Educational Union' has been pretty freely advertised, . . . is certain to grow into a great society."-- Rev. H.L. Jackson, M.A.
We have to mourn the first break in the ranks of our contributors. The news of the death of the Rev. R.H. Quick, M.A., came upon us when we were expecting his congratulations on our new cover. We little thought when his article on "Children's Arithmetic" was going through the press (see March number), that this was the last contribution to educational thought which the world should receive from the pen of this original thinker, and most wise and genial friend to all educational effort. We mourn a double loss: Mr. Quick has done good service on the Council of the P.N.E.U.
