The Columbia County Teachers' Institute
was called to order nt 130 P. M Monday
88th of December, 1895. Not moro thnn
eighty per cent, ot tho teachers of the
county wcro present, Tho teachers ot the
county generally believe that attendance nt
the Institute Is not compulsory and to this
probably must wo attribute tho fact of the
absence. Superintendent Grimes claims
however that they aro obliged to nttcnd.for
It is not likely that thu Siiperinlendcn
would be required to call the teachers to.
gcthcr If there wcro no means of gctlln
them together.
Music was tho first excrclso of the day
nnd was led by Capt. Cyrus Straw Thl
was followed by devotional exercises le
by llcv. Louts Zuhner,
Dr. Monroe delivered the nildrcss of wcl
come to tho tenchcrs. He said thiit the
teachers' calling Is ono of tho noblest I
which anyone could engage. It ls thu bu
slncss of the teacher to aronso and to d
velon thought. The world nnd nil tho beau
ties of nature nru one of God's thoughts
as art and literature nro the result of
human thought. To educate is to develop
and thus the teacher's work Is far reachln
In Its consequences. While the tenche
may never be a president or a cabinet olll
cer, yet it Is his business to make presl
dents and cabinets. Our first object is to
mako tho school attractive. Tho tuache
should make his pupils sec and appreciate
tho beauties of iinturu una of the lllble
Wu should not fear being called old fogy
If our teaching Is benefitting our pupils,
Wu should not mako copying pads of our
pupils but should teach them to think
Thu production of true manhood am
womanhood in them should bo thu end
aimed nt In teaching. Wo should also look
after the moral welfare of our pupils. Ho
eloquently welcomed tho teachers to
place where they learned thu art and scl
ence of teaching.
Prof. J. P. Ilarklns, of the Orangey!!!
Academy spoke next of the "Essential t
Success In Teaching." Hu said thu tench
ers should strlvu to attain success, since
such important results depended upon tl
views thu teachers cntertalu couceruln
their work, tho spliit and energy they put
Into It and the knowledge they possess of
tho human mind. He said Hint nil, no
matter where placed, should try to attal
success, since they have assumed to be
teachers. This fact brings with It tho sup
position that they are aware how easy it i
to ilivarf those powers of mind which
might by tho proper application of
tho proper means prove n blessing nnd a
power lu thu world. No one possesses so
gieut opportunities of doing good, since no
one is brought luto so closu relation will
susceptible minds. Teachers should take
advantage of thu trlud methods of others
which hnve been found to bo successful
for the children of this hind have a right to
ull the benefits thu public schools confer,
especially when these benehls are within
thu reach of the teachers nnd probably
withheld only from a lack of proper exer
tion on their part. He compared tho mind
to p. planet which being brought into con
tact with certain outside Intluenees grows
to Its full Stature. Tho tnic-hiT ta llin
judge of the Influences that must be pre
sented to bring nbout the growth of the
faculties of the mind. They urn presented
to him for guhhincc nnd direction. Hero
is thu most delicate part of our work, for us
he inllueuces the mind of .tho chl'd aright
to thu same extent is he successful. Tho
teacher should cultivate In his pupils self.
reliance. The teacher should undeistand
human nature. He should be energetic and
love his work.
Prof T. J. Corlcn, of Normal Park, III
spoke next on "Structural Geography."
We shhould read thu earth as we read ge
ography. Selecting South America as an
example he pointed tho relation of its
structure to its rain fall, vegetable and mil
mnl life. Having the material nt hand
he made witli sand an outline showing tho
elevations. Tho moisture of tho trade
winds from the east is precipitated on the
western coast. Hu showed that clvlllza-
Hon originated not in the tropics wheru all
thu necessities of llfu nre so nbundunt, nor
near the poles where man can scarcely get
enough to eat, but at that point between
whero mnn is compelled to work for a liv
inc. with sufficient time for reflection.
Dr. 1). J. Wnl'er then enterluined the
nudlcncu with an Instructive talk nn the
"Olllco of .Memory." He said the destiny
of children depended in it great measure
upon the views teachers entertain concern
ing thu ollice nnd training of memory. Two
prominent and directly opposlto opinions
prevail. One class of teachers strengthen
tho memory by committing the letters of the
alphabet, names and places in Geography,
rules, definitions and tublcslu Arithmetic.
This, hu sab', strengthens memory. Hut
like shovelling u pilu of dirt from onu place
to another in order to strengthen the body,
no benefit being derived from the work.
The memory and also tho body should bo
tmlnc I by useful cxerclso. Any ono who
can read a book can show apparent re
suits. The knowledge ncquired by the me
chanical process of the memory resembles
real knowledge and is deceiving. Those
who advocate tho other shlo of this (pies
tic:; cull Ihu memory the power of Ihing
nnn recalling knowledge by association.
Wo exult memory when we develop this
faculty In connection wlih the other facul
ties of the mind, nnd refuse to make her
a Junk shop or a capacious maw. To cxer
else the memory ns a separato faculty and
without calling Into play tho other facul
ties of tho mind is degrading tho mental
Supt. Grimes then presented to the Instl
tulo Miss Leila K. Patrldgu of Normal
Park, III., who spoko substantially as fol
lows: It Is nearly three years since she had
dono nny Institute work In Pennsylvania
and that meuiu no Institute work nt all.
It seemed like coming back to old friends
to come back to Columbia County, for she
remembered tills county well, how warmly
she hnd been welcomed on previous occa
sions and how eager the teachers were to
profit by Instruction, She felt flattered by
being called three tunes to the same coun
ty. A great revolution is going on in tills
countryund indeed all oyer tho world, cer
tainly In Kngland, Tho object ot educa
tion Is now recognized to bo u drawing out
of the powers of thu mind. It consists no
longer of a pouring In process a, mere uu
qulrlug of knowledge. Wo merely ndupt
ourselves to thuviuws ot the child nnd sup
ply sufllcient material and thu mind grows,
Tho teacher has it in his power to cither
aid or retard tho development of the mind.
In utter years many of the methods now in
use- will bo regarded by men and women
ns bnrbarous. The point that should en.
gage our attention ut nil times ls the com.
pleto development of all thu faculties of all
thu children under our care. To do this
wo ns teachers should not bu too proud to
do away with everything that Is faulty In
our methods. Inslltiitu adjourned 'Ull 8
o'clock p. m.
Tho devotional exercises were conducted
by Huv. P. P, Mauhnrt, after which Prof
Preemau, Supt. of the schools of Shenan
doah addressed tho Institute He referred
to thu uct making twenty days nctual
teaching a school mouth, und also to tho
attendance of teachers at the annual Instl
tute. Ho, believes thut teachers nro
obliged to attend tho Institute, Ho theu

Miss Patndgc spoke ot "liusy Work.'
A great many teachers find mfllcullty 1
keeping pupils busy nt their scats. Good
government depends on pupils being cm
ployed. Thu child must bo kept busy or
it will find employment itself. Wc should
educntu the hand ns well as the! brain
Shu said nothing should bo taught tier
(for its own sake) but In everything tnugli
tho end aimed at should be the complete
development of thu human being. Tin

nets performed. We ure creatures of habit
: wrong act is thu beginning of u wrong
habit and lu every caso should bo rebuked
by the teacher. Wu should seek to mak
education practical. Wc should train
children to think.
Exercises opened with music and devo
tional exercises conducted by Dr. .Mitchell
Ur. Waller continued the discussion of
memory. Hu said that in proportion n
thu uxerciscs for training memory arc in
tellectual, calling into exeicisc the other
faculties of the mind, to the same extent
Is the exercise an Intelligent one. I the
mechanical exercise of the faculty that
without any regard to the thousrht buck
of thu iii 111 the pupils nro not interested
The child in tho first years of life stores the
memory with a vast amount of useful
knowledge. This he does by coming Into
contact with objects and being interested
n them the impressions mado arc lasting,
He ans.iciates thu namo of tho object with
u object itself and thereforo tho memory
s not taxed slavishly.
i lie pnysician memorizes a new pre
scription not by studying the arbitrary
characters but by the study of the Ingredi
ents contained therein. This is an in-
tellectual exercises nnd enables him to re
nin thu prescription with ease. These he
aid are Hie laws that should control tho
touchers In the primary schools. The old
pen. knife method was a mechanical ono
ml he hoped no teacher in Columbia
County followed it. It requires thu pupil
to memorize a form without associating the
form with thought. Thu proper way is
to start with a form which will ctll up n
thought. The child at this stage is very
iiqiiiiitiye nud this is thu time to nwuken
his thoughts nnd to answer his questions.
This position in regard to the subject Is
not u peculiar one ns It has been lecom.
mended in other places and particularly in
the schools of Philadelphia. In connec
tion with arithmetic tho speaker said that
if the subject is properly presented to the
pupil there would be no necessity of com
mining a great number of rules in order to
manipul'ito tho different parts of thu sub.
Miss Patridgo then entertained the Instl
tuto on thu subject of rending. Sho said
our pupils come to us having already usso
elated ideas with spoken words nnd power
to imitate the spoken word. He has al
ready gained Idens nnd thoughts nnd usso-
ciuted ideas with words. The expression of
leas und thoughts in his own words. The
next thing the child lias to do is to asso
ciate Ideas with written words. The next
dug the child has to do is to associate
ideas with written words. Imitate wiitten
ords, expression nf Ideas nnd thoughts In
he wurds of others.
I'hu process of associntion deals with
"is and words. There must be a proper
limulus. There must bu repetition. First
thu idea produced by tho objects and plc-
res then tho word sound, then tho writ-
ten woul. Sho said wu ought to bo rapid
readers. It is possible for somo to under.
and thu thought expressed on u printed
igo by merely glancing over it. Henrv
Ward Iieecher possesses this power in a
rcmarkablu degree. Heading Is nothing
moro than gettng thu thought from the
printed page.
Prof. Corlew on Geography. Ho said
that there Is great tact lu handling chll-
ren and it Is needed in Geography as
much ns in nny other brunch of learning.
hu Professor then referred particularly to
ly&lcal Geography. Hu said we ought to
ow our-pupils tho effects of tho winds,
tho sunlight und heat upon tho llfu of the
globe; how God fitted up this globe for tho
abllutlon of man. Hu nid hu would not
iifinu pupils to any particular text book
but ullow them to read thu different truths
Id down by nil. Have them locate the
garden spots of thu world nnd then hnvu
them explain why they nro found nt that
particular point. In this way you impress
upon them the effects of sunlight, heat and
rainfall, and that wherever they uro found
you will find feitllesoll, Thcru is a great
lvautngu in having properly constructed
maps, lustltutu udjourned 'till 2 o'clock
Miss Patridgo gavo u tulk on reading
nnd how to meet difficulties. This wus di
rected to Hie teachers of primary pupils.
.Hiss I'inuey then reud un essay on "Eml.
neut Women," Shu says It Is u question
hethcr as somo have supiroscd Heaven
lias denied woman genius. Woman's hap.
lest place Is no doubt ut homo If bIio has
one, 1 here Is scarcely a country but hns
eldod a glowing example of woman.
Many truly uolrlu women aro buried In the
drudgeries of life. Women engaged In
'caching need never expect to gain ills.
Unction, ns tho world has It, though her
name ls not found on the pages of history,
Yet sho Is engaged lu a nohlo and respon
sible work. Although there ure those
who clslm that the avocations ot llfu
should not be open to women, nnd that sho
Is Incapable ot filling them sho has, not
wlthstandlig, proven herself capable of
learning business by experience. Many
women nro working to-day shoulder to
shoulder with man.
Professor O. II. Dakclcss, Principal ot
tho schools of Catawissa, gavo an cxplana.
tlon of the .different samples of work on
exhibition done In thoso schools. Ho said
they wcro presented there without being
touched up by the teachers, nnd camo di
reel from the hands ot the pupils.
Professor Corlew then answered the fol
lowing questions! "Do you approve of Hi
use ot the rod In tho schools." He said
that was n hard question to answer, since
It Is a very broad one. Whipping ls evl-
dence of a teacher's Inability to control the
boy ho whips. Tliero Is a good place In
every heart. It Is our business to find It
Whipping Is not tho right thing to do, but

Miss Patridgo was the next speaker.
She said If she knew what was In the
minds of the teachers she could assist
them more. Somo teachers think tho new
methods discard text books entirely. This
is a mistake: under tho new methods
more text books aro used Hiiin under the
old. The advocates of the new method
use text books but do not abuso them.
variety of text books creates on interest in
the class. Speaking of Hie time given to
a recitation, sho said school officers try to
maku teachers slaves of time. Thev trv
to teach the schools from their homes.
Dr. GrofT discoursed next on the "Nerv
ons System." Tho nervous system con
tains white and gray matter. Each has
peculiar kind of structure. Outside of the
brain has gray matter. This matter is
made up of cells. These cells are not
round, but look like an insect with numer-
ous legs. The white matter Is mado up of
floors, hach fiber has u sheath on outside
and Ir.stdo white matter acting like India
rubber. We cannot place the point of
needle on the body without touching
nerves. The brain consists of two parts
the ceiebrum and the cerebellum. The
cerebrum Is the seat of the intellect. It is
the organ of ho mind tho seat of sensa-
Hon and ot pain. The cerebellum is the
seat of the power which controls tho mus
cles. The nervous system is the most inv
portnnt part of tho body.
51133 Patridgo showed her method of
touching reading to primnry pupils. She
took six small children from tho audience
and gave each ot them a flower. After
they all told what they held lu their hands
she wrote the mime of tho object on the
board. Sho wroto the namo on different
parts of the board nnd they were ablo to
read under any circumstances. Sho said
she used this method to stimulato thought
by associating tho object itself with the
name. She then questioned tho children
on the flower making it the subject for u
Iangunge lesson.
Mr. J. C. Drown spoko next on tho sub
ject "How Can Directors Help to Raise tho
Standard of Teachers." Ilosald It wns his
design to present only a few thoughts and
leave the subject for others to discuss. As
to the work the directors huvo to perform
hu said there Is u mistaken notion abroad
that the director lias performed his duties
when ho has laid the tax, collected the tax
hired Hie teacher. and month
ly paid the teacher. It is a mistake
thut directors hnve had no experience
In educational mntters, that they are unable
to judge of methods of procedure. The
public schools havu provided an education
not for thoso who wish to enter the leurued
professions, but for the boy nnd girl who
expect to cngagaln the practical atlairs of
life. Tho directors uro generally choseu
from the uverage Intelligence of the coin,
munlty, and certainly know something of
what Is necessary to produco tho ends de
siredwhat branches should be taught and
what methods used. Directors aru
bio to judgu ot results produced.
t'hu directors can aid materially lu ud-
auclng the standard of teachers by Insist
ing that u difference bo made In tho salary
paid. Tills difference should bo based on
literary qualification mil the ability to im
part information. Tho teacher that can
obtain u certillcuto whose average Is three
is not qualified to command as much nav
as he who has an uverage of one. Nor is
one that has had no experience In teaching
the right to demand us much ns the one
that has. They will also ralsu thu standard
of teaching by making a difference be-
tween thoso that make it a profession and
thoso who do not. Directors are not doing
their duty If they hire thoso who are
making It a stepplug stone to some other

After tho opening excrclsn Dr, Oroff
spoko on "How to teach Physiology."
Under our new law wo aro required to

the best. What would you think of par-
ents Instructing their children In every.
thing from books When n father wishes
to Instruct his child on tho nftccts of to

Anatomy it lias been mv plan to namo tho

io ibiks wo can accomplish much more,
Wc shonld teach practical Hygiene, such
as the effect of light upon tho eyes, catln
at nil hours, the clfccts of keeping on wet
clothing, tho necessity of ventilation nn
cleanliness. The teacher must know rnoro
than ls contained In the elementary book
that he may ba ablo to explain satlsfact
omy tno question ot the pupil. Ho must
prepare himself just as thoroughly as 1;
Arithmetic or History. Tho teacher must
have n knowledgo of Chemistry and Natur
al Philosophy. Success In tcnchlng de
pends moro on preparation than on metl
oils. 1 am opposed to new methods. Tho
first thing is preparation. Lay a broa
foundation. Theru.Isa great tendency li
children to memorize. Make an outline of
the subject nnd require them to recite by
outline, llreuk up the order of tho tex
oook. uet tno students to use two or
three text books. Physiology Is a practl
cnl science and must be taught In a prac
tical way. If I am teaching about a bono
Imusthavs a bone In my hand. The
parts of n domestic animal arc In all cases
llku our own and are sufficient for illustrat
ing. The law requires us to teach the eff.
ects of alcohol aud other narcotics. It
docs not sSy that wo are to teach it every

every Hay but Introduce them gradually
Jliss I'atrldge addressed tho teachers
next. "I have done," sho said, "the best
I could under the clrcumstauces. I nHvay
come to the last day of the institute with
dlsoontented feelings. I feel that there Is so
much that I want so much that I might
nave done, let I have dono from hour to
hour the best I could. I wish the teachers
would always convene on Monday nt noon
and stay all week. It is a bad record for
t cachets to stay away be cause they arc not
obliged to come. Many teachers come to
the iustitule and nfler they are gone say
tlmt they have gained nothing. It may be
the truth. They should try, however, to
do Hie best they can. The best the In
structors can do, is to send tho teachers
homo thinking. Thero is the everlasting
lino of investigation the human mind,
During the institute I have had my full
share of time, I am finding no fault. One
moro point I desire to speak on: Teachers
lesire to know how they can do away with
t nc spelling book. Pupils don't need to
know how to spell a word they don't know
how to itad. Have them write and spell
In every bra nch, in Arithmetic, Algebra,
Geometry or any branch whatever. The
elements are tho same, tho combinations
are new. Wc must work from principles.
The tencher who does this will bo able
do practical work
My viuws nru requested on another point,
viz, btipposo you must resort to many de
vices outside of the regular recitation nnd
parents should object. I would try to
convince the parents that I am doing their
children good. Try and gain their conll
dence, He thorough in your work and it
will tell. We must havo repetition. The
Nuw Methods require technical skill in
whatever Is done. As you value your
moral Influence over tho children never
allow any imperfect work. Murk for ef
fort, not for performance. Dull children
will then get what belongs to them. Great
minds sometimes dovelop slowly. Any
tencher can teach bright children, the good
teacher only can teach the dull. In spell
Ing havo the child know whether it knows
how to spell a word or not. Don't put
wrong forms before tho child. Examine
the work while Ihu child is Interested in it,
Don' let It gst cold. Correct only the
glaring faults. Tho time to corrojt lang
uagefis when spoken orally. We should not
correct mistakos while tho child Is express

rror, corlew resumed tho Subject of
Geography. He gave on tho black-board
tho construction lines of the continents.
He said the first thing to do In drawing nny
maps Is to get tho general outline. We
teach upon the principle of going from
generalities to particulars. Ho said this
globe of ours Is but u thought of Him who
holds the world In the hollow of his hand.
Every whero wo can study Geoeranhv.
Wo can't go out of doors without secimr
lessons. We must not think 'that Gcogra.
pny ls locked up in tho text books. You
may throw out the map drawing but tho
great truths remain the same. Wo should
not study this part of science "merely to
contradict somethlug in tho Ilible. It
should bring us nearer to God. The mo.
live makes tho teacher. All pictures In
the child's mind aro mado of senso nro.
uets. lftho sense products aro imner-
icci mo pictures nre Imperfect. Children
aro born with a lovo of truth In them and
wo nro to develop It. Truth can bo educut.

how them thu truth, let them Investigate
and test it. Teachers, you aro going out
