cnrefiilly listening to the ltiHtriiutlvn
nnd entcrtalnliiK mldiwurH iwulo by
thf various Hpeiikor? of the day.
During tlio niornlng, Dr. Shurnmn
Davis, o Indiana. .Statu University,
continued hla tulle nil "Kuturo Stud
ies," which li bewail Monday after
nnon. Up will continue tin uddriww
on this subject every day during the
Institute. Yosterdny ninnilng he dli
citsHed the spontaneous Interests of
children, nnd declared them to luivo a
life Interest. Among other things, he
said: "The love of life is coincident
with Hfo itself. IH you try to capture
tin animal, obson how It will turn
to defend itself. The gieatest nion
tttrosfty Is the human, who has n
consciousness of himself and destroys
his own life. J Us Is the flagrant viol .
Hon or the two highest biological
Dr. Davis delivered his address in
the main room, and Miss Louise Con
nolly spoke on "Kngllsh in the Pri
mary School," in court loom No. 2.
Tho remainder of the morning pro
Knnnnio was conducted in the main
room. Rev. T. J. Lansing. D. D of
the Green Itldgo Fp'sbyti-riun church,
made a strong address on "Somu
Teaehlng Ideals." He "iiid that gooj
health, n well-balanced nervous sys
tem and un amount of comeliness are
essential qualities for n teacher to
possess. "It you yourself are at all
slovenly or negligent in your Kngllsh,"
he said, "you will appear at a great
disadvantage before your pupil."
"An exalted character Is another
veiy important requisite," Dr. Lans
ing said. After paying tribute to the
character of an ideal teacher. Dr.
Lansing briefly gave his audience an,
echo of the bribery trial and turned
Ms intention to one of the witnesses,
a councilman and teacher, and sulci:
"A principal of a school whose charac
ter was such, should h.; turned out of
tho schools ho quick that his bead
would swim."
Dr. TC. C. Schaefl'or. slate superin
tendent of public Instruction, whose
interesting addresses have made hU
presence a welcome feature at teach
eis' institutes lor many years, spoke
on the subject of "History, How It
Should He Taught and Studied." He
impressed upon tho teachers the fact
that in teaching history they should
not limit themeselves to text books,
but should strive to make tho great
soldiers and heroes of this country
living, breathing characters. A pupil,
once interested in some great charac
ter of tlila .sort, will not only learn
and acquire knowledge about the in
dividual, but about his surroundings,
the times ho lived in, and, in fact,
general informal tin.
Miss Louise Connolly opened the af
ternoon session with an interesting
address on "How to Get Essays." In
its course, she spoke about tho sub
jects for composition work. "Make
tho child describe," said she, "lir.-it,
simple little objects, the hat, tho um
brella, anything to give the faculty
of accurate description." She ad
vised the teachers to add zest to
school work by introducing anecdotes
into the routine drill, to give a point
nnd interest to study, and to encour
age originality.
"There is one place in school to
show temper," she said, "and that is
when you get a soiled, dirty essay in
a grade where the children are old
enough to know better. Then I get
mad, and hand back tho essay with a
big black cross on it, and when the
child asks mo what tho marl: means,
I say it means that I am cross. Mis
spelled, carelessly written words, are
other things that rouse my ire, and
poor punctuation in tho advanced
classes nnd sentences run together are
also very annoying.
Led by Professor John T. Watkins,
the afternoon lesson In music was
held. Dr. Sherman Davis was then
introduced nnd resumed his talk on
"Natural Instincts and Impulses." "It
is a nntural instinct to talk," he re
marked rather nrchly, at which some
two hundred and fifty or so fair young
school teachers audibly tittered. H-j
remarked upon the impulses and de
sires of a young boy to find un outlet
for his pent-up energy, and explained
it Is tha natural inborn instinct.
He Illustrated his argument with
hovornl instances, vhlch gave a keen
point to his uddre.-is.
Superintendent Taylor then Intro,
rtuced Mndumo Elizabeth Do linrrio
SHI. of Philadelphia. Madame De GUI
is of fine presence nnd distinguished
bearing ,und from the moment she as
cended tho plat Conn sho kept her au
dience In continual good nature. Sho
recited two childish poems, "if I Das.V.
but I Dnssn't," and an alleged recita
tion by n small boy. She was heartily
encored nnd recited another juvenile
selection. A live minutes' recess wag
then given.
Dr. N. C. ShaefiVr was Intioduced
to tho teachers by Superlutendeu:
Taylor nnd straightway plunged Into
an interesting nddr?ss on the subject
of "Three Great Or.ulons." "I hope,"
said he, "to convince you before I get
through that the arts of peaeo are
quite as Import an t as (hose of war,
and that the successful orator de
serves his placo In the hall of fame,
just as much ns tho famous admiral
or general. Tho orations of March 4,
March 7 and March 11, 1830, nro threo
wonderful ones In American history,
"Tho first was by John C. Calhoun,
the second by Daniel Webster. This
latter speech brought tho conviction
to tho country thnt the republic must
bo saved, that liberty and equality
must be one und inseparable. Cal
houn's speech at tho time seemed a
failure, but ten years later bore Us
fruits. Tlio third of theso speeches
was delivered by William II, Seward,
nnd Just as Webster's speech was nno
of tho factors which lost hi in
tho presidency, so Seward's speech
inude It Impossible for him to
reach the executive mansion. And
Ht I would rather have delivered that
speech than taken the presidential
oath of olllcc."
Dr. Schaefi'er here branched into a
description of Henry Clay, the third
of the great triumvirate of which
Webster and Calhoun were tho other
two. Ungainly and unprepossessing In
person, it was his brilliant mind and
magnetic manner which made him tha
most agreeable of companions.
"Calhoun's great speech," he con
tinued, "his last speech In the United
States senate, was made after he had
just risen from a bed of sickness, hag
gard and wan, and was read by Ills
colleague, Senator Mason.
"Webster claimed that the north
was remiss in its duty on the slave
question, and the stand he took on the
fugitive slave question, in his great
speech, lost him the presidency. Love
for the union pervaded his speech, in
the beginning of which ho ,said, 'I
speak for the preservation of tho
union. Hear me for my cause,' and in
his peroration tho same lofty senti
ment was uppermost."
Dr. Sehacffer then brleliy reviewed
Seward's anti-slavery speech and
pointed out those particulars which
told against the speaker!: presidential
aspirations, and caused him to ba de
nounced throughout the south. Hs
concluded with a plea that the stu
dent be taught to place the name of
the orator by the side of tho soldier
and sailor In tho hall ot fame. The
session then adjourned.
The eighth annual meeting of the
directors' association will be this
morning held in coint room No. 2.

Tlnrry K. Grim, one of the Pemo.
cratio candidates for congtv.-ssiiian-aL
large, was nevt introduced by Clmlr
nian O'JsY-lll. Jlc Is a smooth, boyish
looking chap, who began by telling the
audience that inasmuch as Grover
Cleveland admits that Hryan if goinr?
to be fleeted, It shows that tho men
who were against Bryan four years
ago aro coming into line for him, be
cause they believe he is goin,? to bo
elected. Sir. Grim ignored the fact
that Cleveland has most vigorously
denied the truth of the alleged inter
view with him.
The speaker next briefly referred to
the tight against Quay In Pennsylva
nia, and then attacked the trusts, lie
said the Democratic party will not
lolcratu trusts, cen if some mem
bers of that party happen to bo stock
holders In thorn.
The question which Air. Grim said Is
the paramount issue now in our for
eign policy.
"Four, years ago," lie weiu on to
say, "wo were lighting for free tllvcr,
now we aro lighting for free men.
Shall our flag be trailed In the dust
nnd bo stained by the blood of in
nocent people? is a quest ion thu voter
will have to pass upon In November.
It is the great, tho absorbing ques
tion In this campaign."
After denouncing expansion in.isfi
vigorously, Jlr. Grim aid that no
matter what lofty sentiments the
publican party may say it is actuated
by in carrying the dag across (ho
Pacific, gain and greed are moving
those who are behind the imperialistic
policy to which the Republican party
is committed.

made n eowurdlv attack on some of
the most patriotic-vIUk'Iis ot our coun
try, 'because they aro Democrats.
"The Republican party," he snld, "is
oft' on till the lendliifr. Issues of the day,
and hopes to snvo tho day with their
full dinner pall."
The speaker admitted there hns been
n peculiar hind of iirosperlty dutiiiB

been malting money, he said. This was
his il n If h:
"In William JcnnlnRS lirynn Is your

Mlt'Imel F. Cunry, tlie enndhlntc for

many speeches of late that his voice
lias grown weak, and that as the hour
