The annual meeting of the teachers of Co
lumbia county, was called to order by Stipt
Uilims, In Notmnl Hall, Dn, 12, IHHI, at 2
The address of welcome by Dr. Waller was
cordial and fplry. He advocated n longerlllnc
than one week for the holding of an Institute,
also a complele grade, founded upon the
ability, experience and position of Ihe mem
bers of the. Institute. This would raise Ihe
standard of Its hopes and attainments, nml
bring the best knowledge or each within the
reach or nil. llesponses were made by Slessrr.
Albart, Uevan and Pcnler. The litnt speak
er's remarks called fortli an unlimited reply
from Prof, Noetllng on the subject of "Com
mon Sense In Teaching."
The Instructors provided, at the county's
expense, were Sllss Smith, of Shlppeiisburg,
Pa.l Sllss Patrldge, of Philadelphia! Prof.
Geo. F.. Little, or Washington, 1). C. The
Instruction given by them was respectively,
"Language Lessons, Qulncy -Methods, Draw
ing." The Instruction was ulmost entirely
confined to primary work. We have been
accustomed lo think that almost any one can
teach a primary school, and that It Is not nec
essary for a teacher ol the elements of know',
edge to know more than the elements them
selves. That idea no longer prevails, but on
the contrary, the foremost educators are lu
favor of selecting teachers of the best talents,
tho most extensive learning, the greatest
skill, and the largest experience In the most
elementary schools. Wherever this Is done
we may expect that the llrst steps in ele
mentary Instruction will be Intelligently
taken.and that our young pupils will be start
cd oft lu the right way toward Ihe end they
should be led to attain.
The Instruction given by the forenamed
Instructors was goods but If the teachers
availed themselves of the Instruction offered
at our Normal School, If they visited many
or the schools throughout the county, they
would Ilud similar methods put In practice.
Sllss Smith's paper on composition ami
letter writing was well received. Ill place
ot grammar so-called, she would give practice
in speaking and writing English. Less pars
ing, and fewer technical terms. A well-studied
plan for all composition.
The drawing by Prof. Little showed great
artistic skill. The universal sentiment of the
Institute was one of appreciation. The re
lations that art education holds to the Indus,
trial prosperity of a country! the relation It
holds to a complele development of tilt fac
ulties and capacities of the mind, and the
demand that a high civilization always makes
for perfection in art, renders the education
Itself a necessity and consequently the Intro
duction of the art.eleinent Into our schools
Prof. Noetllng presented many valuable
points In arithmetic, which could be taken
into the school room. To illustrate his meth
od, a class of young children went through
the process of rapid addition. Slore of just
such work Is needed, yes, demanded by the
Teachers' Institutes of the future.
Questions were asked, discussion awak-ene-l,
remarks made, papers read by teach
rs, dlreccors and citizens of the county. In
struiiienlal and vocal music, gymnastics and
nmrchlng, together with a short operetta,
"Puss in Hoots," were furnished by Normal
School pupils. These added much to the in
terest of the week's work.
Hev. Jesse H. Young gave an excellent ad
dress on "What our children are reading."
The reading matter in the hands ot the youth
justly demands the attention or parents and
teachers. The speaker denounced the
trashy literature sold on the cars and at news
stands, so demoralizing in itsinlliienee upon
One of the main features of the Institute
was the earnest talk that Dr. Waller gave on
"Importance of District Institutes." He
said, raise the standard of (pialltlcatlons and
the pay and positions will correspondingly lie
increased. Ucfore any one goes to work to
better existing circumstances he must be
made to see tin-1 they need bettering. This
may be brought to the notice of the people
through the medium of educational meetings,
which must bo gotten up with special rcier
ence to improvements: in methods of teach.
ing,nnd In arousing the Interest of parents nnd
children, rather than for the testing of the
teacher's text book knowledge.
The evening sessions were devoted to lit
erary treats. Tuesday evening Sllss Patrldge
gave readings and recitations.
Wednesday evening. Col. Sanford delight
ed the audience with his far-ramed lecture,
"Old Times ami New." Another rich treat
ot the evening was the drawing done by
Prof. Little to the exact time kept, by Prof.
Niles and the Slisscs Nlles and Stiles, on pi
alio ami violins.
On Thursday evening, Hev. Jesse H. Young
delivered his fine lecture, "Hattle of (iettys
bun;," to a pleased audience.
Friday evening, Prof. Cuirau guve a num.
her of successful and Instructive philosoph
ical experiments. Prof. Little again showed
his great power in the use of the crayon.
Throughout the. entire week's work, the
teachers were shown that the true object of
all school education should be to develop
humanity to cause the mind to grow, to
deepen, to broaden, to give man n higher
reach, a stronger grasp. Above all, being
a man, to be a wiser, better, more useful
man; less like a brute more like an angel,
more like Cod.
