    Notes Robert Lowe's contribution to the 'Schools debate' in which he advocated instruction in a range of subjects which schools do not provide, including arithmetic and geography. Describes the British Museum debate, noting the opinion of London alderman Andrew Lusk, who thought the museum contained 'too many things so much alike as to be a bore'. Adds that the trustees of the museum are to have the natural history collection and the sculptures 'sold for what they would fetch'.
