Warning to TranipH.
On Tuesday night this town was Infested
with tramps. The lock.up was full of men
who sought shelter there for tho night. On
K'edncsday afternoou Constable Woodward
made a raid on the gang under the Act of
1879, and they were taken before Justice
Rupert, in squads. '1 lie first four were
committed to jail to await trial at May
court, on their own admissions. The next
gang consisted of n red-headed American,
a bronzed Irishman who looked liko a hard
working man, nnd a coal black colored
man. There was no positive evidence
against them, and as they admitted noth
ing thev were discharged on condition that
they would immediately lcavo town. The
tramp nuisance is growing intolerable
here, and tho authorities are determined to
break it up by a strict enforcement of the
law. All tramps caught hcrepftcr will be
arrested. There is no occaslou for any
man to beg from door to door, ns the laws
provide for the relief of the needy, by ap
plication to tho proper authorities. Blooms
burg has decided that the tramp must go.

The Instltuto convened at 11 o'clock.
Devolional exercises were conducted by
Kev. Savage. Tho following organization
was then made : J. 8. Grimes, President ;
Thos. Kester, Vice President j Cora Keeler
and J. E. Hobblns, Secretaries.
Rev. Savage made a short address of
J. E. Hobblns gave a short talk on
"Thinking." Education Is the harmonious
development of the body, intellect and
heart. Public schools have to do with the
last two. Thought and Its expression
plays a great part In this work. Pupils
should be urged to think as much as possi
ble, iu each ot their studies, but should bo
led to investigate outside of cit books.
Younger pupils can bo Interested in the
thousands of Interesting things about them
in nature. This can be doue by risking
questions that will lead to observation and
thought. Let pupils discover truths for
themselves. Older pupils can be Interested
In the discussion of the various sujects
that come up in connection with tho differ,
ent lessons. In expressing thought, pu
pils should be required to tell just what
they mean. Don't allow pupils to answer
questions by a word, It leads to careless
and loose thinking. Don't accept written
work that is not intelligible.
The subject of teaching arithmetic was
uext discussed by Mr. M. C. Turrell. The
first things necessary to success tn teaching
this branch, is thorough preparation on
the part of the teacher, and some prepara
tion on tho part ot the pupils, The pupils
must bo humble, I. c., must know that
there Is something about arithmetic that
they do not know. The teacher must All
himself with tho subject. Don't bo In too
much of a hurry, nor help pupils ton much.
Make business transactions the basis of ex.
amples. First master each subject as pre.
sented In the text books, next give numer
ous problems outsido of the book, and
finally let the pupils make a fow problems
of their own. Encourage rapidity and ac
curacy, be thorough.
Dr. D. J. Waller aud Prof. Noetllng
made a few remarks on teacldng rapid cal
culation. Prof. Noctllng said that no one
could calculate with accuracy faster than
his mind could go at Its best.
The Institute then adjourned till 1:15 in
The first speaker of tho afternoon scs.
Ion was J. M. Fritz, Principal of the
Shlckshlnny schools. He spoko ot the
teacher as a "builder of character." Each
one has an Influence for good or evil over
all tho people that he comes In contact
with. Tho tcacuer being associated with
tho pupil intimately and for some time,
makes considerable impression on their
characters. Ho should Inculcate In his pu.
plls truthfulness, respect for superiors aud
age, and reverence for God.
Itcv. D. M. Klnter gavo an Interesting
talk on "Moral Training In Schools." Mr.
Kintcr having taught twelve or fifteen
years, knew something about the business.
He said that unmistakable evidence, such
as newspapers, show that there Is a fearful
lack ot moral training somewhere and he
was disposed to placo a great part of il up.
on the teacher. There Is a lack of order, a
person can hardly pass some school houses
I without being Insulted or snow-balled.
Manners should bu carefully taught. The
' a J
J e -
'3 cl j-
jffiD3ocQ' as 2111
teacher has many outslac Influences to
contend with, the Influence of the street,
of tho skating rink, nnd often of home.
Spelling school Is often only another way
for a general carousal and has n bad Influ
ence physically and morally. The teacher
should be strictly moral himself. Ho
should govern by love when possible, but
punishment Is often necessary for restraint.
God himself Is unnblo to govern men with
out punishment. Tho parents do not re
spect and encourage the teacher enough.
They should sympathize and nld him. Tho
teacher, on the other hand, often teaches
only for the money. Ho must bo Interest
ed In his work and Interest the parents.
Prof. Noctllng next presented tho sub
jeet ot writing. lie tald that It was a
waste of time to spend ten or twelve years
In learning to make such "miserable
scrawls" as most of us make, and that bet
ter results could be accomplished In less
time by using proper methods in teaching
it. He would do away with copy-books
and writing exercises as such altogether.
Set the pupil to wilting the very first day
he enters school. Let the pupils write
their lessons and always sec to It that they
do their best. He would do uway with
slates In school and use writing tahlels in
stead. Small pupils should never be allow
ed to use the ordinary thick pencil it is
too largo for their little fingers to handle.
The teacher should give special attention
to pen-holding, placing of book nnd posi
tion. Only one Torin for each of the let
ters should be given j this form should be
permanently placed on the blackboard or
wall, and all written work should be dili
gently compared with these. As a writing
exercise dictate n paragraph or two twico
or three times a week. Have It carefully
written, then criticise it carefully us to
writing, spelling and punctuation.
Mr. McIIcnry of lierwick, one of the old
est, and said to be the best school director
in the county, said several things that !
would have done every director of our part '
of the county good to have heard. Parents
should bo interested in such n gathering,
directors should speak, and teachers should
Jot down their difficulties and bring them
with them for discussion. Schools should
be up with tho other business interests of
the country ; in most towns It is so, but In
Benton, he was sorry to say, it Is not ;
whllo Benton has inudc advancement In
other directions, the educational interests
have fallen behind. The school uouso does
not compare favorably with the other
buildings ot the town. It should be Im
proved as the dwelling Iiouscs are made
betttr. The site should bo carefully se
lected, tho house should bo substantial,
good and pleasant ; good wages should be
paid to teachers ; low wages drive all thJ
good teachers out ot the country. In Ber
wick they have spent n good many thou
sands of dollars for school property, and he
did not think that anybody was live dol
lars poorer for It. Directors should visit
schools. Teachers should always recog
nlze pupils on the street. Moral suasion
failed In Berwick. Tho two-term system
Is a poor one.
Miss Carrie Turrell conducted uu excr
else in reading. She brought n number ot
her pupils ot the fifth reader grade with
her. They rend very well, the audience
paid strict attention during the whole ex
ercise, and after it was over Mr. McIIenry
nrose and said that It had paid him for ills
long cold drive from Berwick, if ho hnd
heard nothing else.
Prof. Heck spoko a short time on "How
to Teach History." Ho thought that we
had cot too much philosophy in leaching
history. Begin almost anywhero with tho
subject. The philosophy of history is not
Inteiestlng to young pupils, and should
hardly be taught in public schools. They
should be set to reading historical books
nnd stories, such as Hoblnson Crusoe, tho
stories of IValter Scott or Cooper, The ge
ography of a country should be taught In
connection with its history. Such n story
as the Green Mountain Boys will interest
young pupils so that they will desire to
know more. They are not interested In
history us presented In tho ordinary text
book, but In bloody stories und Indian
wars. The Intcr-coloulul wars arc interest
ing to them ; all these am Interesting nnd
contain moral truths. Thcru Is u kind of
history ho called schoolmaster's history,
committing n lot of dry 'details to memory,
that is worso than useless. A history to bo
interesting should bo a continuous story,
of chopped up Into chapters nnd para
graphs as most of our school histories are.
Pupils Bhould not bo allowed to commit
tho language of the book. To avoid this,
give so long lessons that they cannot do It.
Interest them by telling interesting and
funny stories. Don't catechise your pu
pils, but let ono tell till you think he has
told enough, then another, etc. Let every
fifth lesson bo a review i glvo each pupil a
topic in recitation, let him think over it,
then get up and tell what he can. Pupils
do not road one-tenth enougli i giro them,
books, not Bancioft and Macaulay, but
books that are Interesting to them, Interest
them In tho newspapers. No other branch
taught In public schools Is so Important as
history, lly reading history mun is able to
live thousands ot years In a life time.
Prof. Noctllng made the last address of
the day. lie said that method, ns used In
connection with education, did not mean
a mechanical way of teaching. The teach,
er must study the mind ot tho child. Thu
means he employs to reach Its mind Is
what is meant by method. A good bit of
time is lost because the pupil's mind Is not
reached. Tho teacher should think more,
and ground his methods on knowledge.
Chtldrvn thirst for knowledge. To keep
up this desire, the teaching must bu In ac
cordance with the mind of the child. Thero
Is a science of teaching, and the teacher
should know It. A good placo to learn it
is at a Nor.nal school. TeachcrB from the
Normal, however, will not teacn for $30 00
a month. It Is bad ccoifomy to employ
Dr. D. J. H'allcr, Jr., lectured In tho
evening on "Public Schools." Ho spoke
ot public schools as thu mainstay of the
government. The lecture was Interesting
aud Instructive, and was well attended.
