Superintendent N. T. Houser, of Dun
moro, presided over the session of the
county teachers yesterday. County Su
perintendent Taylor being engaged
with the directors of the county who
Were meeting in Young Men's Christian
Association hall. After the usual drill
in music by Professor Cogswell, Pro
fessor I ted way delivered a lecture on
"Map drawing and map reading." One
of the teachers asked him if there were
any geographical proofs of the lost At
laiilis ever having existed. His reply
was that it was probable that it had
existed but there is no absolute proof
of it. In drawing maps unci reading
maps the professor said it is the dis
tribution of commercial points that
should be tixed in the minds of the pu
pils. When this is noted the area given
to different products should be taught
and oilier details of the map tilled in.
The lecture waa illustrated with draw
ings on the blackboard.
A either solo was given by Professor
Lloyd, of Priceburg. und Professor Hol
bi k followed with a talk on Peda
gogy." He told the teachers that when
u pupil docs not want to study there is
something wrunrr for the child with u
healthy mind is cuger for information
und wants to learn. The mind must
work as all the organs of the body
must or darkness and death ure the
result. It is a mistake thai is growing
umong teachers thiit t veryt hing should
be inude as easy as possible for the
student. He advised teachers to as
sign lessons as If ilie punils wanted
something to do und if the pupil is un
able to overcome uny dillUull point
they should be given assistance.
Dr. Main L. Pratt closed the morn
ing session with another of In r talks
on Child Study." She said the best
period lor work in the school room is
imiiieiliateiv after me moiioog sen.n
begins and if she had her way she
would have the pupils ut arithmetic
when in almost all schools they ure
singing. The proper mental result can
not be oldained when the physical con
dition Is not proper. Teachers should
try and be cheerful and happy and
make the atmosphere of the school
room optimistical.
In the afternoon the session opened
with the singing of two choruses by the
teachers, Professor Redway following
with a talk on the "Correlation or
C.eography and History." He believes
in teaching the two studies together,
as one has a direct relation to the oth
er. Me described a number of peculiar
geographical formations and made the
statement that the commercial su
premacy of New York over the other
seaboard cities of the east Is due In a
great measure to the Erie canal, which
gives It a direct connection by water
with the great lakes and the great
west beyond. This cnnal was made
possible by a peculiar geographical for
mation in the valley drained by the
Mohawk river.
Professor Cogswell said he had been
asked to sing for the institute, but In
stead would have the graphaphone re
produce for them his son, "Sweetest of
Sweethearts," which he sang into it
Wednesday evening. The reproduction
was excellent. Several other grapha
phone numbers were given one of
which was "Put Mo Off at Buffalo,"
which drew a large number of the
county directors from the parlor where
they were meeting.
Professor George Bible, principal of
Stroudsburg Normal school, was In
troduced at the conclusion of the
graphaphone exhibition. "We have
heard." he said, "a great deal about
the teachers' profession during the last
twenty or twenty-live years, and if we
have not yet renched that high stand
ard we wish to attain we should not
be discouraged, for we are making
progress, and I believe that golden
days for the teacher are approaching."
Ho dwelt upon the necessity of child
study, and said more thought and in
vestigation with reference to the pe
culiarities of each student will result in
better and more satisfactory results.
Superintendent Coughlin's afternoon
lecture was "Heading for Front."
"I think." he said, "the grent duty of
the teacher Is to form character, and I
deem the world's greatest teacher the
one who can stand behind his desk
anil best help the pupil to help himself.
A great deal can be done In this direc
tion by a wisely selected course of
reading. I want to draw a distinction
between learning to read and reading.
Learning to read is merely a prepara
tion for reading, and It ought to be
completed at the end of the third year.
How many of us succeed in getting
through with this matter in three
years? After completing the third
reader the pupil should read for in
formation and profit and should be
encouraged to read assimilate books
that will ennoble the reader and build
his character along proper lines."
Dr. Holbrook was the last Instructor
of the afternoon and spoke on his us
ual topic, "Pedagogy." He dwelt upon
the matter of stimulus In the school
room. The teacher, he said, can feed
the mind, stimulate the mind and di
rect the mind, and he suggested a line
of thought with regard to these things
that might be followed out and elabor
ated upon by the teacher.
Professor Houser read a letter from
the Scranton Business college. Invit
ing the teachers to visit the college
and examine the manner In which it is
conducted. The closing session of the
institute will he held this morning.

Other Important Unsincs.
In connection with the county teach
ers' institute the fourth annual meet
ing or the Lackawanna County Direc
tors' association was held yesterday
in one of the Young Men's Christian
association parlors. The deliberations
of the directors were presided over by
John W. Cure, of Oreenlield. president
of the association, who delivered an
address on "How to Improve Our
Schools," immediately after the meet
ing opened at 10 a. in.
A very thoughtful paper was read
by D. H. Moses, secretary of the Spring
brook board, on "How Should Tench
em" Salaries be GradPd?" He was of
the opinion that experience and prov.d
efficiency 'should be the main factors
In fixing a teacher's salary. A good
test of a teacher's ability, lie thought,
consists In his success in Interesting
the pupil In the work of the school
room. The paper was discussed by Su
perinlenderft C'oughlin, of Wilkes
Hurre. Superintendent Taylor, of this
county; J. L. Stone, of Waverly and
William H. Morgan, secretary of Dick
son city school board.
The directors next listened to an ad
dress on "New School Laws," and
called their attention to the necessity
of having an exhaustive law on con
tagious diseases. In regard to the com
pulsory education law, he said, the best
way to repeal a poor law -Is to have
It rigidly enforced. By enforcing It the
defects will become obvious, therefore,
he urged even those opposed to It to
work tor Its enforcement. Mr. Cough-
lln also made a plea for the free li
brary law. Frofesnor Richards enter
tained the meeting with a recitation on
The annual election of officers re
sulted as, follows: President. William
Repp, Old Forge; vice presidents. J. P.
Moore, Jefferson, O. K. Hallstead, Ben
ton; secretary, J. J. O'Malley, Oly
phant; treasurer, F. L. Carr, Elmhurst.
At the afternoon session there was
a discussion on the topic "How Should
the State Appropriation be distri
buted," which was participated In by
William Repp, of Old Forge; 8. B.
Wage, of La Plume, and John il Stone,
of Waverly. Two addresses were de
livered during the afternoon. Dr. R.
Heber Holbrook spoke on "Tho Value
of Professional Training to Teachers,"
and Dr. CScorse P. Bible on the "Re
lation of Normal Schools to Common
Schools." Professor Richards pave a

Prof. llrou V. King's Interesting
Rending in Y. M. C. A. Hall.
Professor Byron W. King Instructed,
entertained und delighted a larye au
dience of the county teachers and their
friends at the Young Men's Christian
Association hall last eveniiK. .Mr.
King's first recitation was one of Ills
own composition. He prefaced It with
many witty remarks and dissected the
poem in such a nice vein of humorous
sarcasm that it was Uesthnahle
which gave the greater satisfaction, his
preface or the declamation.
"Shakespeare." said he, "always pre
pared his characters by introducing
luiighuble incidents Just previous to
ids most pathetic, melancholy and
tragic utterances so as to make them
stronger by contrast." Shakespeare
understood human nnture well, and the
professor knew human nature well
enough to .imitate tho immortal Will
lam in this respect,
All through the entertainment he
paved his way in a delightful manner
to and Illustrative of tho succeeding
number. He possesses the very agree
able art of story telling and even of
punning, but at no time does ho lessen
the standard of dignity due to his au
dience. The vuriety of selections embracing
comedy and tragedy which he Inter
preted so masterly last night shows his
wonderful range and versatility.
He recited several of James Whit
comb Kiley's famous poems, among
them "When the Frost Js on the
Pumpkin" and "There Is Nothing to
Say." From Shakespeare's Hamlet he
gave speeches in the first and fifth
a ts. The last number was the chariot
race from Ben Hur, and the story lead
ing up to It. Nearly every one of his
auditors had heard this recitation on
some former occasion, but probably
never with as much pleasure.
