Since writing our last nrtlcto concerning
tho alleged "failure In tho attainment of
results" in tho llloomsburg schools, wo
havo ben Informed that ono ot the present
teachers In the schools tried the "word
method" of teaching rending with her
clnsscs, ten years ngo, nnd so manifest wns
the Improvement thnt sho abandoned the
old nlplinbctlc method nnd continued the
new. Others of the primary teachers,
hearing of tho success of tho "new meth
od," ns It wns called, mado themselves ac
quainted with It ns fnr ns they could, nnd
nlso Introduced It. Tho "six or eight
yenrs of the preamblo to tho resolutions
unanimously adapted," should have been
ten. There must, however, havo been n
reason for making It about eight.
But tho pernicious effects of the "now
methods" must have remained latent four
or flvo years, for wo nro informed by tho
RtpubUcan that this "deterioration" began
only flvo or six years ago. Either the di
rectors miscalculated their time, or tho
"deterioration" kept itself purposely con.
cenlcd from them four or five yenrs.
The prcnmblo asserts thnt tho "puro
word method so-cnlled" wns ndoptcd. Tho
puro word method can mean but ono of
two things, namely, cither that only dis
connected words were taught, or nil words
simply by sight. But since neither of theso
as we are told, Is true, thejasscrllon lias
much the nppenranco of a falsehood.
The preamble also states that tho "puro
word method so-called" was adopted as
the proper one. This at least Insinuates
that some one considers this method ns tho
proper ono j but as the directors have tail
ed to answer who It is, we shall regard
this also as savoring of nn untruth.
To show that some of these schools could
not have deteriorated much below what
they were eight years ngo, nnd thnt tho so
cnlled deterioration was really an improve
ment, wo would state that wo have It upon
good nuthority that nt Hint time two gen
tlemen of experience In school work, vis
ited n number of tho rooms, hut not of tho
primaries, and found much of tho teaching
nntlquateel nnd Irrational.
Ono of the same gentlemen, In company
with other educators, has since visited
them twice, tho last time, wo believe, two
years ngo, and he snys that each visit
showed nn Improvement on tho prcceel
ing. Thnt the views entertnlncd by theso vis
itors hnvo nlso been held by other persons
nppenrs from the following : 1. At the
time Ex-Superlntendent William Sny-
uer, men t'rlncipal, Held ins exiuuiuon ol
tho schools In the Onern House, nfter Dr.
Hlgbcc's ndelrcss, ono of .the directors,
being called upon for n speech, spoke of
tne excellent condition ol tlio schools and
of the advantages the children had of ac
(pilrlng an education, adding that it had
been a question with tho directors whether
tlio course of studies should not be extend
ed, but that some had opposed it, believing
that an extension would Injure the attcn.
dance at the Normal. 2. Mr. Snyder
while principal of the schools, frequently
invited us to visit them, snylng that the
teachers were doing good work, and that
tho schools were improving. 3. Mr. Buck-
lncuam, Mr. snyucr s successor, a'so in
vited us to visit the schools, invariably
speaking well of the tenching and of tho
progress or tlio schools.
According to the foregoing opinions, tlio
schools have not been retrograding, or de
teriorating, but improving. Since, how
ever, one of the directors only a few yenrs
ngo spoke of their excellent condition nnd
now says that they have been deteriorating
for the past five or six years, we should like
to have him reconcile his two statements.
Will he be kind enough to tell us which of
them to believe. Both of them cannot ho
true ; aud since there is no middle ground,
one must be false.
It appears from what has now been said
(1) that the "word method" of teaching
rcaumg was Introduced Into the schools
ten years ago, Instead of six or eight ; (2)
that tlio "pure word method so-called" was
never usee! ; and (3) that tho schools have
not deteriorated, but improved.
In our first communication wo showed
that the word method of teaching reading
is philosophical, being bnscd upon well es
tablished psychological principles ; it can
not therefore be erroneous. It is, too, the
method employed by the largo majority of
Intelligent nnd successful primary teachers
in the United States, tho only exceptions
being those who use either tlio phonic or
tho sentence method both of which nro
more difficult than the word method. Tho
assertion mado in the preamble, that the
word method of teaching reading Is a fail
ure, Is consequently a mero invention nnel
without the shadow of truth ; and sinco
the directors did not express any doubt as
to tlio qualification of the teachers (because
they could not), there remained but ono
parly to whom short-comings could bo
charged, if thcro were any, and wo elo not
doubt thnt they existed. Cnu those ot tho
directors who preferred tho charges, see
the point ?
It can mako llttlo difference to any ono
who "Justice" is, ns long ns he socks noth
ing but truth nnd justice. Frothy articles
headed Methods of Instruction, New Meth
ods, or anything else, nnd containing igno.
rant nssertions, misrepresentations, nnd
evasions, elo not irritate him ; even tho
truth would not do so. Those who write
the nrticles In question, need not worry
themselves about the feelings of Justice ;
but lie would gently remind them of this
fact, namely, that if they continue to make
such unfounded statements as they have
been doing he will not hesitate to show
them up lu their true light, whenever ho
feels like it.
The Republican ot Nov. 13 contains au
editorial, headed Methods of Instruction,
which in every one of its statements plain
ly exhibits the methods of the politician in
stead of tlio educator. Its writer seems
"stirred" because we have said that the
directors aro incompetent to crillciso meth
ods. Our assertion is based upon their
statement that tho word method of teach
lng reading Is a failure, and their subslltii.
tion of tho most stupid of all methods for
It. Could anyono want more conclusive
cvidenco of tho justness of our assertion ?
Tho writer says, too, that tho eminent
euueators wo nave quoteel, aelvocato tho
method wo pronounce unphllosopliical,
Will ho have tho troodness to nolnt out
wheio we havo pronounced It unphllosoph.
leal. What we said was, thnt If tho tench,
era hnd tauuht as the directors alleged they
had but which we did not believe their
method would havo been unphllosopliical,
and that this would have been satisfactory
cvidenco of their unfitness.
Wo are told, further, Hint tho graduates
of tho Normal hove always had tlio prefer,
ence In the Bloomsburg schools ; If giving
them inferior positions.such us thoso of as.
slstants, is considered n nrefcrenco. then

years, iim tho nrefcrenco. Wonder.

bio that the Bloomsburg directors could

that needs to bo taken with many grains
of allowance. Perhaps, howover, the Ian.
terns with which tho illrectors groped their
way uuu ueuu iiueei wan an interior finality
of all. '
Thero remain yet a few questions which
we should liko to havo tho dlredctnrs nn.
swer fairly and equally t 1. hy is It that
a number of tho teachers now In these
schools havu clsowhere- taught tho now
methods with uniform success, but hnvo

rniMDEM-nu, December r, 1883
Let the rich and fashionable
dress-stuffs look out for them
selves. Their time is so far
past that we can't afford to give
them more than room in the
store. That they have abun
dantly. Some of the richest and
strongest, extremcst, cloths are
fjone of course ; but what are
eft would make another Phila
delphia merchant giddy with
self-satisfaction if on his shelves
in October, and green with envy
to see them here.
It isn't for want of rich and
costly stuffs of the very latest
date that we turn to those the
million will buy for Christmas.
These, because they are good
in every sense of the word and
cheap. We shall mention noth
ing to-day that isn't both.
The most unlikely thing to
happen was that tumble of
dollar or dollar-and-a-quarter
Homespun down to 75 cents.
That is the cheapest stuff in
the store, considering the craze
The next perhaps is Lupin's
merino ; 65 cents for 45 ; but
that'll be over shortly. The
next grade finer at 50 is gone,
except a few colors.
And the next may be the
dollar ladies'-cloth for 75 cents.
Almost a year ago we began to
sell it so. It is just as cheap as
ever ; and only two or three
things have surpassed it all
through the year.
Drap de Varna we sold for
$1.25 till October 22 ; then at
75 cents. A whip-cord twill.
Lupin's La Source went down
by two jumps from 1.10 to 60
cents. A herringbone twill.
Lupin's Angora, a serge,
went down that day from 75 to
Lupin's dark-color cashmeres
fell before that day from 50
cents to 37. Lupin's merino
at 45 and 50 has kept them
back; but they'll be gone before
Several Homespuns down.
The prices now are 25, 37 ,50,
60, 75 cents and$i a yard the
same as for several weeks, ex
cept that the piles are growing
smaller. There's nothing new
in Homespuns. Or rather the
news is against you. The
wholesale market has emptied
itself. We bought in the nick
of time. It isn't too much to
say now, the grip on the market
is here. We couldn't have said
so while the wholesale mark et
was threateniner to belch out
Homespun boucle, a striking:
plaid of boucle on homespun,
doubly fashionable, down from
$1.50 to $i.
Lupin s Marie Mar pot that
fell November 21 from $1.2 to
75 cents is one of the most re
markable stuffs we ever en
countered. To tear it is out of
the question. To slip the yarns
is out of the question. And yet
it is an open basket canvas.
That single fabric is almost
enough to make a maker fa
Wiue-wale diagonal went
down with it, $1 to 50 cents. A
beautiful cloth, but looks a trifle
