children. Our younger friends have their questions month by month in the Juvenile Instructor. The Gleaner Examination will probably attract elder boys and girls, but it is not limited to them. Candidates must not be under fourteen years of age, but they may be of any age above that. If we find adults competing, as we hope, we may be able to arrange two sets of prizes another year. At Bath, where the scheme has been warmly taken up, the Local Committee have offered additional prizes for Bath candidates, dividing them into two classes, above and below sixteen years.
