I'rofeoling* if Teacher** Institute.
T:.e Teachers" Institute in Lewisville
held its first Session Tuesday, Oct. 14.
iii the afternoon.
Mr. Allen made a few remarks, and
as tiie Instructors were nut to arrive till
the next day. he took the names and ad
dress* s of the teaeliers and dismissed
tin m for rest until tbe boor of the even
ing h cture.
TI KSDAY. 7? i>. m. —A'pleasant audi
i nee was assembled in the Methodist
Churcli to listen to Rev. Mr. Congdon.
t ( oodersport, on the subject of Cwn-
N-'k'w.'s. tketr dfjlciemtus on*? thi re
t. •*?/'>. The sj•* aker ft It that he was
talking t,n a subject of no little hn|ort
ance. The teacher's work cannot be
over-estini:;td. The child's lnLntl is in
his ham!. He may slmjie its whole fu
ture. ii. this lift- and in the other —t-nd-
-1* ss life. Who can imasure the effects
resiiltinit frotu I lie work of a careless,
ine* mpt i* nt ttacher? Yet, how great
tiie reward if the duties be well done.
Common school instructors are at the
fowndatkw of tbe whole edSfiee of lt-arn
ing. Not tht irs to unftiltl tlie wonders
of lit- heaven*, to reveal tlie depths of
the earth anil show its formation or to
lead the way through the pleasant fields

beauties. The teacher of tlie common
school niovt s in a humbler hut not less
important sphere, and as the statesman
must stand or fall according to his work,
so must he lie judged by hi* efficiency.
Subjects t*f study and thougiit s ioiild
lie st-lected W it 1J cave. It i* sad to see
a smaUt-riiigol of: er languages with an
ignorance of the mother tongue. Young
ladies get a little French and German
and talk enthusiastically of Schiller and
Goethe, while tliey are ignorant of the
surface and structure of the earth a*
well as of the commonest tliiugs they
see. Habits of thorougli scholarship
mayl*eftimeei in vt ry tally yearstlirougli

Common SCIUXJIS :ue tlie seminaries
of tin common jieople. Then IKW tho

studies pursued there wliicii are n-ad-
Hig. writing, sjn-lilng. geugrapi y and
arit! in; tn are etauigli t prejiaie one
for discharging creditably the tiulii-s of
almost any office in our country.
Tisc li 'jl' schools liave wider scojx.
Tia taciter has a i igut tod maud that
it skill be confined to a higher COIUTNC of
instruction. The Common scliool is ia>t
io be so ci.Uibtrtd. Tie higher stutlies
there are out of place—their intro
duction is a jxssitive wrong. There is
only time for tle work of the common
school. If a teacher, through vanity.
>t t ks to display a knowledge of botany
..nd algebra by introducing tht in as
studios, he is guilty of defrauding tla
m. jo ity of their lights. The yoiuigtt
and dullest scholar should not l*t- neg-
Iccttil: he may yet liecome the |>owerful
-talesman. Fifteen or twenty minutes
a day are not enough for the least ad
j vanct d.
(Qualifications of the Teacher. —Gotid-
: ness and integiity are not enough; apt
n< ss to teach and govern are retjulsite.
A teacher should have dignity ami that
' . aincltss power over otlier miuds that
w ill enat'le iiim to qiuet disturlwpce-s ,
ml cause the angry waters to settle in
o calm. There must l*e control of self ,
•ml also an aptness to communicate.
Though one wire an t n yeiojvdiu ot i
knowledge lie woultl find no use for ;
unless he were able to communicate i
to others. Not that his knowledg
should avail for the child—he slioul
give him only just enough aid to Dip
| .an tuning!*.
Another qualification is: Thorough!
acquaintance with the branches that he
is to teach. He should complete his
studies before attempting to teach them.
It is not enough to study with them;
every branch should be thoroughly mas
tered iu advance.
Remedy for Dtjusiemiai. —This is chief
ly with tlie Superintendent. If efficient
teachers are secured, the schools will
fulfill their appropriate mission. He
should administer the duties of his of
fice without fear, favor or ho}>e of re
ward. The examinat it ms should lie real
and n<d formal. He should sift the ma
terial and then direct and compel teach
ers to do their duty.
There are. meantime, many difficul
ties to be overcome, and among them
that of compensation.
There is a nobility and a sacredness
iu tbe work of education. The marble
is plastic iu tlie hands of the sculptor
and may long commemorate his genius,
but the teacher's work remains inhu
man souls, in the lives he ha* shajx-d—
--"living epistles known and read of all
men." He will find his reward in time,
and beyond in the "land of light and
WEDNESDAY. 8:45 a. in. —Session
opened by Rev. 11. W. Congdon, with
Sune of the Instructors having ar
rived. Mr. Allen called upon Prof. Jones,
of Erie, to "break the ice."
He began by saying there must
first lie a (ogtllnrnc.-f; among the mem
bers of the Institute. Tie good to be
gaimd is an influence rather than abso
lute knowledge. If the teachers should
find themselves, at the close, looking
ujion tl.eir work as a nobler work and
d.-dieating their k-.*t jmwers afresh to
its duties, then would tlie mission of the
Institute have been fulfilled. Prof. J.
recollected his first attendance. He had
thought to gain some nice new fact.*,
some puzzles learnt d nowhere else. He
went away a little disapjminted. but in
a few* months he ki ew himself to k- a
better teacher for the inspiration caught
at tin- Institute. His older scholars saw
tbe change and inquired the cause.
It Is vain to hojie for real intellectual
culture during the sessions of one Insti
tute. Thece i* no excellence of mush
rot m grt wth; it is the result of contin
uous labor. When a boy lie had seen a
jciuiphlet entithd "Latin in Twelve
La.*y Lessons." Being ambitious and
eager lor knowledge, he bought it and
found it only the alphabet of Latin: that
language can k* acquired only by years
of study. Si with tbe various system*
of penmanship. lie had once taken les
sons with tlie promise of becoming a nn
isht d penman in a few evenings. Those
lessons were a positive injury. He learn
ed to make a few nice letters with ele
gant curves and flotu khes. but his hand
writing lo>t its freedom—becoming
cramped and awkward.
Mrs. Martin, of Pittsburgh, then ap
leaied before the teachers and again
ttxik up her work of instruction in Klo
cution. Their prompt concert-reading,
correctness of emphasis and aptness in
foil* wing the tones of her Voice showed
maik'd improvement since lier Lst
year's efforts among them.
As we listened we distinguished some
voices clear as bells and others so deep
and full of mtlodytimt one could but
crave for them a higher degree of cul
ture. We said reflectively. •"Perhaps
they will yet lie eloquent iu the cause of
right: doubt has they will do honor to
Potter county.
Mrs. Martin proceeded to give some
rules for emphasis, and as all teachers
may not have her work on Elocution, a
reiH-tition of them may not le aruiss:
I. In every sentence distinguish ti eem
pliatic words by a natural, forcible and
variable emphasis. 11. Every-new sub
ject is emphatic. 111. Pause after the
empliatic word. IV. Dwell ou the em
phatic words. V. Emphatic words us
ually require the falling inflection. VI.
Pass over tlie unemplmtic words slow ly.
VII. Whatever ha* been expressed or
is understood is not emphatic.
Mr. Jones then t*xik the place of In
structor and advanced some idea* on
Elementary Map-draw spicing his
illustrations in l*is own jreculiar way so
refreshing to the teacher. Then he led
their t!-onglits through a more set ions
way. talking <if the grave resjmnsibiJiiies
of their w* rk and of tlie habits necissary
to their highest success.
1 j P. Aftei the Calling of the roll.
Mrs. Martin gave instructions in the
voiie, which she distinguishes as Pure,
Orotund, Gutterah Aspirate and the
Tremor. Examples cf each were read
by the class, in concert, till they under
stood the distinctions of the terms and
the style to which each is adaj ted.
After an hour qx-nt in the most in
tense attention to rhetorical drill, Mrs.
M. withdrew, leaving Prof. Jones to
pick up tlie thread of his morning talk
about J Libit, the principal divisions of
which were: I. system: 11. Words: 111.
Under the head of SyUm, a disorder
ly school-room was vividly pictured,
where one w as looking for chalk and an
other for rubber, with nothing in its
place and no exercise at the right time.
From tliat. the qx-aker passed toascene
more generally appreciated, when the
directing spirit was absent and flighty,
the table never supplied with the neces
sary articles till the demands of the din
ner-hour had made frequent and hurried
journeys to the jKintry or the china clos
et, and where might be found the house
keeper "so tired" 1 that life was a burden
. instead of the grand and beautiful thing
that it might have been.
Again, teachers should be careful of
their exmß. They are expressions ot
thought. Children understand this and
are sensitive. Prof. Jones rememb* nd
that when a child, in school, lie was
once called a blockhead. The name was
i thoughtlessly used but it was much to
I him. since it so aroused his indignation
, that he resolved never to go again to
that teacher for an explanation. The
hard word rankled iu his thought, and .
when asked in recitations. "Henry, do!
you understand that?" lie answered—
always—"yes. sir."
Another teacher had said he was too
mischievous to go to school, and after
that he gave her abundant cause of
j complaint.
Prof. J. quoted from one teacher
whose language was > wordy, so much
;of a tangled web. that m clear idea
could l>e got out of it. lie spoke harsh
ly of "yesterday" and threatened fierce
ly of "to-morrow." yet no fresh young
mind was in the least influenced by bis
harangues. If. instead, he had admin
istered a mild rebuke fur the thoughtless
conduct of the day previous and said
gently, "we will do better to-morrow,'*
much friction might have l>eeii saved
and good order secured. Unkind words
are keen as swords; they may be atoned
for but never recalled.
Cut off a child's ear and he must go
through life maimed: no apology could
restore it; his only thought is. "you had
110 right to do it." No it is with the
tender spirit, wounded by harsh and
thoughtless words. They are not for
gotten. and in many cases the teacher's
influence is lost by their utterance.
-i> U are often as important as words.
A hand is laid on the shoulder; no word
is said, but the heart of the child springs
to interpret it—lie feels ai ouce that he
is appreciated.
The young ttaclier, entering a new
fleld of work, looks around upon a group
of boys struggling with their lessons;
her pleasant, beaming smile says much
to them. Tney conclude, at once, that
she likes boys and are pivjtared to do
their duty loyally.
Prof. J., with inimitable skili. drew
the portrait of a "galvanized teacher;"
whose face was always without the least
expression—his voice stern and solemn.
When the scholars read, it was in the
master's solemn tone*; if they regarded'
him. it was with dread, and the boldest
was never known to look liim clearly in
the eye. but always with stolen glance
and half averted face. And yet, out of
school he was a good fellow but was
sadly mistaken in the teacher's office.
A teacher should be full of spirit and
enthusiasm; he may be full of temper
but it should be held with tight rein*
Temper is like powder; all force, all
pi-ogress come from it but give way to
it; the powder flashes and some one is
After another lesson from Mrs. Mar
tin in Elocution, Prof. Jones resumed
his subject;
In addition to the habits already men
tioned there is a certain management
necessary. One should know how to
avoid irritation. He drew crowded
marks UIKIII the blackboard, | 150 of
them, he- said, 1 representing scholars,
and above the in all one for the "little
ttaclier." There is need for the sweet
est ]atience in such a place.
