Proceedings of Teachers" Con
The MifHin County Teachers' Associ
ation, met in the Court House, at Lewis
town, on Monday, Nov. 19, and continued
in session during the week. At least
seventy teachers were in attendance, every
district in the county being represented.
Instruction was given in elocution, by
Prof. Mark Bailey; in orthoepy and spel
hng, by W. W. Woodruff, Esq.; iu Arith
metic, by Prof. E. Brooks; and in pen
manship, by A. 8. Manson, Esq. In
addition to these exercises, reports were
read upon practical educational questions,
some of which were followed by interest
[ ing discussions.
Prof. Bailey's lectures and readings at
tracted large and intelligent audiences and
were received with much favor. His in
structions in reading during the day ses
sions were based, not upon an arbitrary
system of elocution blocked out to suit the
notions of some teachers of the art, hut
were founded upon a close observance of
the laws of natural expression, and hence
were eminently practical.
The instructions in orthoepy and the
spelling lessons given by Mr. Woodruff*,
were new and instructive features of the
institute. The teachers present were form
ed into a spelling class and .500 words were
sailed, the four best spellers receiving
prizes. Mary MeCord, Adelia E. Thomas
and Kate E. Gwinn, all of Lewistown, re
ceived the first, second and third premi
ums ; the first being Worcester's Una
bridged Dictionary, the second, Lossing's
Illustrated United States History, and the
third Worcester's Comprehensive Dic
tionary. Mr. W. C. MeGlenahen, of
Locke's Mills, received the fourth premi
um, consist ing of Worcester's School Dic
tionary. These spelling exercises w#re
interesting and were engaged in loth by
teacher* and citizens.
Prof. Brooks explained in a very interest
ing manner the metric system of weights
and measures recently authorized by Con
gress, and gave a clear exposition of arith
On Friday evening, Hon. J. P. Wiek
ersham, 'State Superintendent, delivered
an able, eloquent and stirring address on
the " Educational Needs of the Htate."—
Among these needs as stated were, a
lengthening of the minimum school term,
an increase of the State appropriation, a
more efficient grading of schools in town
and country, the education of public sen
timent, and a closer school supervision by
means of a local superintendent for every
twenty schools whose duty it shall lie to
spend one day every month in each school.
It is not the intention of the school de
partment to push all these measures im
mediately through the Legislature, but to
call the attention of the people to them
and secure such action from the Legisla
ture as may le practicable. *
The Mendelssohn Association enliven
ed the evening sessions of the institute
with excellent vocal music.
At the close of Mr. Wiekersham's lec
ture J. K. Hartzler, chairman of the com
mittee, read the following resolutions,
which were unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That our thanks are due to
those citizens of Lewistown who have ex

Prof. Edward Brooks and Hon. James P.
Wickersham for their lectures, and to the
Mendelssohn Association for the excellent
vocal music with which they have so gen
erously favored us.
Resolved, That the lectures on elocution
and the readings given by Prof. Bailey
have been characterized by so much sim
plicity, originality and naturalness as to
merit our hearty admiration ; that we feel
encouraged and honored by the presence
of this distinguished educator and by his

reason why the
Made at Waltham, Massachusetts
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is com
posed of SOLID PLATM. NO jar can interfere with the
harmony of its working and no sudden shock can
damage its machinery. Every piece is made and
finished by machinery (itself famous for its novelty,
as well as for its effectiveness) and is therefore prop
erly made. The watch is what all mechanism should
be—ACCURATE, SIMPLE,STRONG AND ECONOM
ICAL. Except some high grades, too costly for gen
eral use, foreign watches are cniefly made by women
and boys. Such watches are composed of several
huudred pieces, screwed and riveted together, and
require constant repairs to keep them in any kind of
order. All persons who have carried "ancres," "le
pines and "English Patent Levers," are perfectly
well aware of the truth of this statement.
At the beginning of our enterprise more than ten
years ago, it was our first object to make a thorough
ly good low priced watch for the million, to take the
place of these foreign impositions; the refuse of for
eign factories, which were entirely unsaleable at
home and perfectly worthless everywhere.
How well we have accomplished this, mav be un
derstood from the fact that after so many years of
public trial, we now make MORE THAN H ALF OF
ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED
SI ATE-S, and that no others have ever given such
universal satisfaction. While this department of our
business is continued with increased facilities for
perfect work, we are at present engaged in the man
nfaeture of watches of the very HIGHEST GRADE
KNOWN TO CHRONOMETRY, unequaled bv any
thing hitherto made by ourselves, and unsurpassed
by anything made in the world. For this purpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected an ad
dition to our main building expressly for this branch
of our business, and have filled it with the hest work
men in our service. New machines and appliances
have been constructed which perform their work
with consummate delicacy and exactness. The
choicest and most approved materials only are used
and we challenge comparison between this grade of
■>ur work and the finest imported chronometers. We
do not pretend to sell our watches for LESS MONEY than
(••reign watches, but we do assert without fear of con
tradiction that for the SAME MONEY our product is in
comparatively superior. All our watches, of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, and this warrantee is
good at all times against us or our agents in all parts
of the world.

feits will be prosecuted.

The American Artists' Union would add that these
premiums are to be considered only in the light of a
free gift to their patrons, as the Engravings are fur
nished them below their market value, and as the coat
i of engravings, after the plates are procured, is very
! trifling, they can easily afford to make the distribution
j large as it is.
We trust that our numerous friends throughout the
! country and t'anadas will use their utmost exertions,
! so that if possible, the distribution may be made soon,
and it can be done if they are atail'active. Ladies
have often made excellent club agents for us, and we
solicit their kind efforts, which will not go unreward
ed. Let one or more energetic persons in everytown
and village in the country commence as soon as they
see this, Hnd get up as large a club as possible. By so
doing they will be the means of introducing elegant
engravings into fannies, and thus aid in cultivating a
taste for the beautiful and refined.
