AUCTION HALKK. —No display of beau

A BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS DECORATION.
—Among the decorations incident to the
holiday season, now *o near it* close, we
have heard of none, and saw none, In
Hidlefonte that exceeded In beauty of de
sign and artistic skill in arrangement the
Christmas Tree, as it was modestly called,
erected by Mr. and Mr*. John Lane, in
tho residence of Mrs. Lane, on Allegheny
street. The ornate structure was not a
■ingle tree, but wa* rather a series of trees
placed around two sides of a chamber, at
im elevation of about two foot from the
lioor, so a* to form a charming evergreen
bower, with its overhanging branches dec
orated with a groat profusion of olegant
toy* and confections—tho whole occupy
ing fully one-half tho space of the room.
Around the outer edge between moss cov
ered banks, meandered a stream of water
that came, first, us a rippling cascade
down a steep declivity, and then subsiding
into a gentle brooklet that held a number
of beautiful gold fish. Within the reces
ses of the bower, on tho green moss, were
to lie seen a great collection of toy animals
of different species, and also several minia
ture houses with ornamental surroundings.
To the little one* it was a scene of enchant
ment, and they might readily imagine
that the housos should contain for their in
habitants an Oberon nnd a Titania with
their band of fairies ; or |>erha|is it might
be (jueen Mab, and they could expect her
to ap|iear with her song :
"COM*, FOLLOW, FOLLOW MR—
YOU FJRY RIVE* THAT L%
WHICH CIRCLE ON THE KRN—
COIN#, FOLLOW MALI, YOUR IWII !
HAND IN HAND IFI'I DANRC AROUND,
FOR TBU |>UR* IN FAIRY GROUND."
This faint description does not convey as
fair a conception of the picture that greet
ed the eye upon entering the chamber as
we should like, but it roust suffice. It
was indeed a sight to gladden every one
who saw ito-s source of real delight, not
only to the children, but to "children of a
larger growth"—and the pleasure imparted
was by no mean* confined to the immediate
family of Mrs. Lane, for a large number
of friends and neighbors, big and little,
old and young, called during the week to
see and to admire.
ENTERTAINMENT ON CHRIHTMA* NIOHT.
—The night of Christmas, when overybody
is supposed to feel gay, is a good night for
an entertainment. The one given under
tho supervision of Mrs. Love for the bene
fit of the Baptist church was, it is unnec
essary to say, very successful in every re
spect. The only difficulty in reporting it
is that there wa* too much to speak of
each one separately. The eight orchestral
selections were executed in an artistic
manner and of themselves would have
mode a fine musical entertainment without
the addition of several quartette*. The
urchins who acted "The Ragamuffin Brig
ade" were capital. Mr. Hal Orbkson took
the place of Dr. George Harris in the solo
and chorus "We've drank from the same
canteen" with credit to himself. One of
tho prettiest tableaux of the evening wa*
"Mary of Scots first view of Kizxio."
Both the tableau and chorus of "Five
o'clock in tho Morning" were fine, and
those who (isrticipated in the former look
ed exactly like jolly, *|iarking country
lad* and la*e. "Red Kidinghood" was
splendid, from the lovely fairies and the
innocent little "Red Kidinghood" up to
tho ravenous wolf, whose voice much re
sembled that of Spencer C. Ogden. We
; think that "Red mother
did the most appropriate thing under Use
| circumstance* to run out the door after her
I child when the obstinate curtain refused
to fall. The only tableau that fell at all
list on the audience was "Rebecca and
Rowena," which is only because msnv
person* have not read Sir Walter Scott *
; "Ivanhoe." The scene which perhaps has
received more compliments than any other
wa* "The Bridal Wine Cup," in which
' Miss Maud Wallers, of Look Haven, re
peated a thrilling, dramatic temperance
speech with much affect. It was called
forth by the persuasion* from her friend*
to drink wino at the conclusion of the
bridal ceremony, in which she acted a*
bride with J. L. Spongier, Ksq., as bride
groom. Miss Walters is a tall, handsome
girl with considerable fire and energy In
her nature. The entertainment was so
sncceeshil that it wa* repeated the follow
ing night to a good audience. Over one
hundred dollars were realized from both

LAST WEEK AT THE BUSH HOUSI.—
Everybody from all part* of the county
seemed to be stopping at the Bush House
during last week. Although it Is claimed
that this hotel has over three times the ca

parts were there without an excejftion and
it seemed as If every teacher in Centre
county was also there. The registry shows
the names of many of our farmers evi

the lead as the place for our home people
as well a* the commercial public. Cleanll

TL'THKAY MORNINCI. ,
Tho Centre County Teacher*' Institute
gathered in the Court HOUM at nine A. M.
on Tuesday, December 23, County Buper
intendent Henry A. Meyer in tiie chair
and a few of the prominent lady and
gentlemen teacher* present. One of the
important exercise* was A talk by Prof.
N. C. Bchieflfer, of the Keystone Statu
Normal School, situated at Kutr.town, Pa.
He spoke on the subject of "Pedagoflk-*."
The Institute ha* had the pleasure of hear
ing Dr. Schieffer on several previous occa
sions. His remarks on this occasion were,
as usual, quite able. This wa* followed by
a song by Mis* J. Kttie Crane, of the
Bhippensburg Normal School. The lady
is a pretty little blonde, with an exquisite
voice and captivating manners. She
accompanied herself on the piano. A lady
whose name was announced as Miss Delia
T. Smith wax invited to address the Insti
tute on the subject of "Language Lessons."
Bhe also represents tho Shipfienxhurg Nor
mal School. Her remarks on this occasion
were merely introductory to others on the
same subject. They were well received.
The roll, which was called at tho opening
of the session, was repeated at this point,
and the Institute spent a short time before
adjournment in discussing the advisability
of issuing a daily paper containing the
The presence of many additional teach
er* on Tuesday afternoon gave greater
interest to the exercises. After roll call
Prof. Schieffer was invited to address the
Institute on the topic of "Spelling." He
reviewed in brief the different ways in
which this exercise is conducted in our
schools, expressing his opinion as to the
best mode* to lie adopted. To illustrate in
what an execrable manner some of the
most accomplished scholars spell, he said
that Shakespeare wax known to spell hi*
own name in fourteen separate way*.
Numerous questions were asked the Doctor
at the close of the exercise. Mis* Crane,
one of tho fair teacher* from the Ship
pensburg Normal School, gave a lively
and very entertaining lecture on "Music
in the public schools." She said she bod
a right to make the statement that music
is the most useful study in our schools—is
not a mere accomplishment, but necessary.
Bhe said that music teacher* generally
have tho reputation of being ttrribU per
son*. At the close of her remark* several
questions were asked her, and Prof. Schs f
fer said that the reason tnu*i<* teachers like
her aro terrible is because when they
'peak they find their way into the hearts
of their auditors and create a heart-ache
there for a long time afterward. Her re
(hark* were a success Mis* Smith then
gave one of her excellent lectures on
"Language Lessons." Bhe showed that
children often come from their homes
speaking incorrectly, because their parent*
learn them to do so at home. When in
school they should find a teacher who will
by example learn them to speak well.
Conversation, she said, is a lost art. Her
remark* were excellent. After a motion
in regard to the publication of Institute pro
ceedings, Mr. H. 11. Hershbergorread a pre
pared lecture on "The siits ytoi no*
of surer** in teaching," after which the
Institute adjourned. At the evening ses
sion Miss Crane gave two of her delicious
songs, with Mis* Bmith at the piano, and
Prof. Schieffer gave his lecture on "Pesta
lor.xi, the Martyr of Pedagogy." The
lecture resulted in glvfhg hi* auditor* an
exalted opinion of that ancient Italian
A much increased representation of
teachers rendered the Wednesday morning
session much more pleasant than any pre
vious occasion. After the formal morning
devotion and roll-call, Prof. Bcbieffer re
sumed the ever fertile subject of "Peda
gogy.' In his remarks he exposed some
of the false view* advanced by those who
have discussed the thorough training of
children. Hi* remark* were notably prac
tical and if followed will result in much
good. The audience were pleased when
Mis* Bmith again took the stand to deliver
another of her delightful conversational
talks on "Language Lessons." They are,
she said, only designed as introductory to
Grammar. This time she spoke principal
ly upon the art of learning quite young
children to form sentences from pictorial
illustrations. "The Maid of Dundee," was
a delightful song which followed, by Mis*
Crane. On leaving the piano she resumed
her instruction* in "Vocal Music," giving
an outline of how and what children in
the primary schools should be instructed in
this art. Ten minutea each day is sufficient
time to spend. She believes in allowing
children to sing only so loud as they can
without taxing the muscle* of the throat.
Bweetness and naturalness are what should
most assiduously bo cultivated. The lady
wa* asked an unusual number of questions,
which she answered quite pertinently.
Prof. W. A. K rise gave a general exami
nation in the world's history during the
past year. The question* covered a wide
latitude of what should be well known
facts to all who read the newspapers. Mr.
P. P. Bible, of Milesburg, seemed to give
answer* with the most readiness. Mht
Crane made this session of the Institute
end very sweetly with the rendition of Ja
During port of the Wednesday after
noon exercise*#ie Court House wa* crowd
ed. After a lecture by Prof. Krise on
"Primary Geographythe musical exer
cise by Miss Crane took place. The lady
taught a class of bright little girl* and
boys to sing a pretty song gbout an old
grey goose. She presented two way* In
which teacher* may advantageously teach
this branch. The Institute was then ad
dressed by the County Superintendent of
Clinton county, by Oen. Jamo* A. Beaver
and by Rev. Dr. Hay:, Priwidnntuf Wa*h
ington and Jefferson College, Mi*a Crano
followed theae remark* with a lovely vong
entitled, "Welcome, Pretty Prim Roae."
Mis* Hmith then renumed the auhject of
"Language Is**xin*," saying that after Ibe
•pice of the gentlemen'* *j>e*che* the bread
which *hc had to offer in her exercine
would be acceptable. A lecture on
"American Literature" wa* then given by
Mr. C. C. Zeigler, which wa really a well
prepared effort. The evening session, al
though not largely attended, was exceed
ingly pleasant. A classical song, entitled
"Magnetic Walla," was followed by
"Charley Magree," a very pathetic song.
Both were quite exquisite. The lecture
on "Character* and Manners," by Dr.
Hays, contained many noble and exalted
CIIRIMTMAH Mo KM.SO.
Although the teacher* were compelled
to assemble on Christmas morning they
were determined not to mis* their Christ
mas dinners, and therefore carried a mo
tion that they be allowed two hours in
which to partake of it. The committee
on time and place of holding next meet
ing reported that for the year 1880, the
Tuesday following Chriitmas, Dec. 28,
will be the most desirable time, but that
a change of place is not advisable. The
President complimented the teachers on
the excellent order maintained, but re
gretted that more interest was not shown
in the exercises by asking questions, and
advised them to occupy the front seals.
Prof. Krise then told his auditors that re
views in ail lessons are of great import
ance, and in reply to questions gave seve
ral pertinent responses. Prof. Scbwffer
said that he does not believe in teachers
insisting upon the mere outlines of lesson*
any more than he doe* in eating the bones
of a turkey, without the flesh. In inter
mediate language ioasons, which Mist
Smith gave at this point, she said that
they are necessary before the introduction
of Grammar. Miss Smith thinks that
Syntax and Etymology alone belong to
Grammar. Her word* were marked with
| originality and thought. Rev. D. Z. Kline,
in hi* lecture on the "Map of Europe,"
said that the course of river* always indi
cate the slope of the land. In a few re
marks on "School Discipline," Prof.
Scb ffer compared it to military discipline.
A teacher must utilize the curiosity, activ
ity and love of the beautiful inherent in
bis K-bolars'natures, just a* the Catholic
church appeals to the a-sthelic taste of its
By two o'clock r. M , the teacher* had
' gotten themselves on the outside of their
i big dinner* and flocked in large numbers
;to the Institute. The Superintendent was
j made chairman of a committee on the se
; lection of new text books, of which the
| other member* are Prof. Wolfe, Dr.
i Schs ffer, Prof. Krise, Prof. Gramley, and
i Prof. Lieb. Another interesting lesion on
vocal music was given by Mix Crane, in
which she gave the teachers material to
use in fourteen different lesson* to their
scholars. She also drilled the Institute in
a few special exercises. In her lesson on
j "Language" on this occasion, Mix Smith
devoted her time principally to letter writ
, ing. She described the entire modun ope.
] randi of writing busines*, official and x>-
; cial letters—not neglecting the kind which
I she frequently receives, "love letters."
1 Mix Crane elicited the applause of the
audience by singing "Nora O'NeiL" Many
facts in Geography not known before and
' hut little thought of were brought out by
: Prof. Scbs-ffer. He believa* in making
this branch interesting by telling the
•tudents item* of general and wonderful
! information on the division* of the coun
try they are studying about. The evening
j was devoted to a lecture by Rev, I)r.
I Netbil, of Pittsburg, on "Shoddy." It
i was listened to by an audience of al-out
: one hundred and fifty people, and was
marked with earnestness and thought.
"With an undiminished attendance Insti
tute was called together at the usual time
and the roil railed. The committee on
nomination* reported a number of names
to be voted for as officer* at the afternoon
session. A resolution wa* offered by Mr.
I). M. Lieb to the effect that the proceed
ings be published, the accounts audited,
Ac., which was, on motion, adopted. A
committee was appointed on the subject
with Superintendent Meyer as chairman,
the other member* being Memr*. D. M.
Leibtnd C. M. Gramley and Mix Sallie
Meek. Mix Smith gave a lesson on
Grammar in illustration of the step fol
lowing her usual language leeson. She
mentioned the many perplexing ways in
which the word "It" may be used, and
condemned the use of diagrams, especially
Clark's system. She convinced ber audi
tor* of the tenabienee* of her position in
replies to question* addressed to her by D.
S. Keller, Esq., Dr. Hoha-ffer and other*.
Mix Crane sang "Hannah at tl* window
binding shoes," and then resumed her vocal
music lesson* to a clax of teachers. This
was a more advanced eserrtse. Prof. A.
N. Kaub, Principal of the Normal School,
at Lock Haven, was present, and being
called upon, spoke at length, compliment
ing Mix Smith and seconding her views
on the subject of diagram*.
In hi* lecture on the "Culture of the
Sense*," at the afternoon session, Prof.
Scha-ffer exceeded hi* former effort*. The
human ear, he said, ha* Improved flfty per
cent, in the la*t twenty yean. Singen a*
■weet a* Jenny Lind and audience* who
can appreciate the choicest music are now
common. In speaking of the absence of
•ome senses, he said that he had known
person*, who, deprived of four senses, had
made the remaining sense answer the uses
of all. The beck, he said, U least sensitive
to touch, and the tongue most sensitive.
