Lectures on the subject of temperance are given in the Marl-borough Street Training College by Dr. Bell, the Professor of Elementary Science. It is understood that Dr. Bell has up to the present given ten lectures this session on temperance as part of the elementary science programme. Temperance is now one of the ordinary subjects of instruction in national schools.
