She Spoke at Yesterday's Session on "Good Discipline" nnd on the Rela tion of the School to the Individu al Child and to the Community, Talk on the Life of Thoreau by Dr. Green A. E. Winship and A. J. Demarest Also Lectured Cho rus Singing1 by Children. The second day's session of the teach ers' Institute served to Introduce Miss Sarah L, Arnold, of lioston, considered iih tho recognized authority on Eng lish work In, tho public schools und one of the most Important factors In tho educational life of New England. Miss Arnold's series of books, "Step ping Stones lo English Literature," arc In use in nearly every city of any size In the country. She Is one of the most pleasing women who ever uddressed a Scranton audience. Quiet and rather undemonstrative, she nevertheless com pels attention. She gave u. helpful talk on "Good Discipline" at the morning session.- It was brimful of good sug gestions which were based on the per sonal experiences of Miss Arnold. In the afternoon she was to have spoken on "Language Work," but she chose Instead to talk upon the genornl subject of the great use education Is to the individual and to the community at large. She said thut there Is a growing tendency on the part of the people of this country to take the school like a Christmas present with out considering for a moment Its great usefulness and its wonderful effect upon the life of the nation. RIGHT TO COMPEL. She declared with emphasis that the state has an unquestionable right to compel every citizen to pay a certain proportion of his or her earnings for. the support of the public school, be cause the public schools tend toward the betterment of the whole commun ity. She said that every child who goes to school Is better und happier when he or she comes out. Tho modern curriculum should respond to this test, she said, and it does nearly always. In leaching reading, she said, It Is a good thing to teach the child to sim ply read words so that he may be as sisted in making his livelihood, but it is far better to teach him the subject in such ii way that he or she may be guided into the realm of books, the reading of which will make him or her better nnd nobler. The methods of school routine and discipline In force in various schools also have a contrib uting effect towards a child's happi ness or discomfoi t, or for better or for worse. Dr. F. H. Gieen continued his talks on English literature. In the morning he had for his topic, "A Glance at a Century o Literature." It was only a passing glance, to be sure, but it was sufilclently long to enable the doctor to draw out of the storehouse of his re markably retentive memory some of the gems of the master minds In the literal y field who lived- during the nine teenth century. Each quotation was given with the view of presenting the dominant note in the writings of each poet or writer. AFTERNOON SESSION. At the afternoon session Dr. Green gave a talk on "A King in the Wilder ness." The king he referred to was Thoreau, the eccentric Massachusetts naturalist, who never went to church, never voted, never married, never drank, never smoked,, and who lived a simple life in a log cabin near Con cord, built On land owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the quiet philosopher, who was his nearest and best friend. The doctor tiaced the life of this quaint character and again took occa sion to pi each a little sermon on the gospel of good cheer, taking for his text Thoreuu's own dissertation on the doctrine of "internal happiness." He said that In his opinion the time is ripe for some teacher to rise up and write a companion piece to the old hymn "Take Time to Be Holy." The new hymn should be called "Take Time to See Beauty," he said. The attitude of the normal, average man toward the beauties of nature, he said, are very much like those of a well-dressed traveler who was stand ing on the summit of a great moun tain peak in the Rockies gazing out over the wonderful beauties of the valley below and at the rocky snow clad peaks throwing their jagged tops into the heavens on nil sides. A true lover of nature, enthralled by the scene, a'pproaehed the well-dressed traveler and as if afraid to break tho silence, whispered to him softly: "Isn't this the most glorious speetti cle you ever saw?" "Oh, I don't know," said the other man, "the thing that's been puzzling ine for ten minutes Is how they ever painted St, Jacob's Oil on that big cliff over there." TEACHING GEOGRAPHY. A. E. Winship, editor of the Educa tional Journal, gave a talk on the modern methods of teaching geography at the morning session, und A. I. Dem urest spoke on "Teaching Beginners to Read." Miss Anna W, Williams gave an ethical interpretation of Dante's "Dlvlna Coruedta," which was rather a ponderous subject to be handled In the brief space of time alloted to the In stitute Instructor, Especial features of yesterday's pro grammes was the singing of a chorus of children from No. 16 school, under the leadership of Miss Eliza Jordan, and of another from No, 12 school, under the direction of Miss Mary Doyle, APPROPRIATION ORDINANCE.

CONCERT FOR THE HOME, Artists Who Will Be Heard nt the Armory Tomorrow Night. Tho new armory, transformed by the magnificent decorations for the charity mil Into it grand symphony of colors, will bo the scetio of the Homo for the Friendless benefit concert, which takes place tomorrow evening. Just one word more concerning tho three distinguished artists whom the managers have en gaged. Tho violinist, Fritz Krelsler, has won mole laurels this year than nny other violinist since Wllhclmz toured tho stutes. His appearance with the Boston Symphony, .New Yoik Philhar monics, Theodoro Thomas' orchestra and Philadelphia, orchestra wero suc cesses or the greatest magnitude. Im mense interest Is being cenetred uniting the musicians of Scranton and vicinity over his coming. Mndnme Blauvelt has hosts of frlpnds hero since her appearance for tho Elm Park church and the St. Luke's kinder garten. We have not forgotten her singing of "Coming Thro' the Rye," "Home, Sweet Home," nnd the brilliant Aria from mighty "Pens." Her voice is In perfect condition, und the greatest enthusiasm attends lior every unnear unee. She Is of the fairest features, -her manner cordial and simple. Mad ame Blauvelt sang la opera, making her debut In the role of Angelglne In M, Bonnenu's opera, "Le Rene." She also sang In Brussels in Gounod's opera, "Mlrellle," a part of which she will sing at the armory tomorrow evening. .Her voice is remarkable In that, while flex ible enough for the Intricacies of floria work, it Is not cold as the ordlnnry coloratura singer, but glows with the warmth of a genial, deeply soulful musical temperament, and In this truly emotional power she Is the superior of Melbu, Sembrich, Adums, and other great stars. Of Ben Davles, tho great London tenor, his unique position today among the singers of the world Is sufficient to fill the armory. Never has such a star musical attraction joined forces for one concert, and it is one that should fill the armory to its utmost capacity. This expensive trio can be heard by every body in our city, for the managers have placed GOO seats at seventy-five and fifty cents. Those who have tickets not reserved had better do so at once, as they are rapidly being sold. The Boston Transcript, speaking of Ben Davles, says: "Last Sunday evening the Handel and Haydn society sang the 'Creation' be foie an audience of 3,000 people, Mr. lien Davles sustaining the tenor role. He was easily the star of the evening, acquiring the greatest Individual effect. Especially fine was his singing of "In Native Worth." He has a largeness of vocal production, surety, frankness, solidity of tone and manner which Americans do not acquire. He sings as if he had nothing else of importance in the world, and not as if music were but one of several strings to his bow. "He produces his voice as if he was not afraid of it getting away from him and being lost. He delivers the verbal text as if he intended every syllable to be heard, and he emphasizes as if he made up his mind twenty years ago as to just what ho meant to say. Mr. Davles is well known as a straightfor ward, consistent exemplar of the best school, and it was good to hear him again. Ho received the only encore of the evening. A beautiful voice, manipu lated by tho soulful and mature touch of an experienced artist." The piano to be. used at the Home concert tomorrow evening is the one Harold Bauer, the famous pianist, used at a recent concert in Boston. It is an extra large Concert Grand. POUR MORE ENTRIES.

He Declares Thnt Coal Owned by Parties Not Owning tho Surface Above Should Be Clnssed ns Third Class Property Coal Owned by Persons Owning Surface Should'Be Placed in Same Class with Surface. Coal Breakers Are Assessable as First-Clnss Property. City Solicitor George M. Watpon has furnished tho board of city as sessors with a written opinion dealing with the questions which have arisen regarding the classification of tho as sessment on coal. Mr. Watson declares In this opinion the full text of which is ptlnted below, that coal severed from the surfuce or owned by persons or a corporation other than tho owner of tho surface, should be classed as third-class prop erty, while coal not severed from tho surface should follow the class In which the surface Is nut. Ho polnls out tho necessity of not specifically assessing such coal, but rather of aiming nt a fair estlmtae of its value and lumping It with the valuation placed on the sur face. Coal breakers, ho says, should bo classed as first-class properly. The opinion is ns follows: Tin: opinion. To the Depaitiiiinl ot Awcois of the C'lly of biianton. Gentlemen: f'oinpljlng with jour loinicst for nu opinion in lelaliou to the ave-tniont of roil lands within the city of Scranton, I tend you tht following: U,v the lerms of the act of general assembly, approied July I), 1S!)7, proiding for the classifi cation of real estate and other piopeity, for pur poses of taxation, in cities of the tecontl cl.ua, and which ealil act is expressly prescned by the leuns of tho net of March 7, 1901, creating the department of assessors in cities of tho second class, I ilnd that the classification of real estate within siitil cities is dhided into tluee d:isc, to wit: liulll up, which fchall be in the liist class. Suburban, which shall be in the second class. Agriciiltmal or untillable lands, which shall be in the thlid cl.iss. I find that the coil undeiljing the city of Sunnlon, which Ins been &eeied fioiu tho em face, and is owned by another person, should be assessed to the owner of the coal, and not in the name of the owner of the suifaee, and that coal so undeibing and sccied fiom the surface is leal estate within tho terms of tho act, and being real estate which is non-pioducllu- in itself, it should be placed in the thlid class, as pi o idee by said .ict. I find upon c:aininalioii of Ihe assessment that there ale within the eily certain mineial estates which h.Tie been di'idedj that is, moie than one poison owns the coal underlying- the em face, which lias been acquired by the owneis at chlTci ent times and by dillerent com cj anccs. In niaUnij this assessment of coal land thus divided, n division should be made and the valuations placed upon the value of the real estate held bj each owner, and the assessment laid upon them sepiiately, but in no caso hI.ouUI tho assessment exceed the amount that would have been as-e-scd upon the piopeity had the whole cslate been in one onnei. This may cause vou come anno.vance, but f think the hue values can be leadily ascei tallied by an examination of the scveial owneis' interests, which the law .tuthoiircs von lo make. Vou can summon the owneis, of the lands to vour office and theip examine them upon their cstalc, and by such examination mccitain their inleiest in tho laud. AS OM1 A'-SDssUKNT'. In lelaliou (o lauds undeilald with coal that remains in the owners of the surface. This should bo placed in the ciius to which the tin face belongs. If the sm face be built up and ini pioved, the whole estate must be assessed in one assessment, and the property placed in the classi fication to which It belongs, by reason of the impiovcmcnts upon the smface. This can leadily be done and an equal assessment made of all co.ll land values within the city. 'licie the piopeity is built up, the coil has geneially been woiked out, or the title to the coil is Reparole fiom the suifacej but vvbcie it does exist, jou can readily add sufficient value to tho ical es tate, by le.ison of the coal remaining under tho smface, or such an assessment as will bilng an equal taxation upon the coal lands so situated wilh linds serried fiom the smface. Wheic the coal is undcil'iiig Kiibiuban piopeity, it 6ecins that the same geneial lulu as laid down to piop citlen of the (list class might bo leadily cnfoiced. As to the coal lands undcilying the suifacc of piopeity in the thlid class, jou will then be obliged lo mill to the value of the coal lands Ihe additional value of the'suiface. In relation to coal-brcakeis, they should be placed In the Hist class. They aie unquestion ably operations cairied on by the use of engines, boileis and inachineiy, and are changing the class or thiiiictcr of the coal, and to a ceitaiu extent aie mauufiluring pints. While, they -do not nianufacluif- coil, they piep.ue coal lor eeitalu uses, and, I believe, should be classed the same as tny industiy changing the character of ruvv nialeiials by changing their foim for maiket. The question of the pioper class in which to place tlie leal estate in the clly is tho only question submitted to me by your inqtihv, The legislature hiving omitted to paitlcularly mention mineial estate, it becomes your duty to classify this; piopeity accniding to vour best Judgment. Thcicfoie, coal seveied fiom the smface, being non-pioducing leal estate, it natuially falls in tho thin! class. Coil not sercied fiom the sur face should follow tho class In which the 6iitface is pul, and the assessment should be so giaded as to lay the bunion ot tho tax: upon the coal by reason of Its undeilyliig lust-class piopeity, the same as it is upon other coil lands within the city.

To thousands of people out-of-sorts, weary, despondent, morose. Irritable, with wenk, faltering step, pale faces, nnd dull and sunken eyes, not sick enough to bo confined to bed, this Is a critical and dangerous season a. time that urgently cnlls for prompt action, If recuperation nnd cure are the prime objects. The past experience of hundreds ot thousands, including able medical men, clergymen, judges, lawyers, literary men and women, the rich and those in high social position, points unhesitat ingly to Paine's Celery Compound, the great medical prescription of modern times, that gives to the ailing, sick, nnd diseased the true condition of health that insures happiness and true pleas ure from day to day. The virtues peculiar to Paine's Celery Compound quickly manifest their power in the correction of unhealthy nerve action, and supplying the veins with pure, more abundant, more vigorous, and life-giving blood. Paine's Celery Compound is pre-eminently the best spring medicine known to medical practitioners' for thoroughly cleansing and purifying the blood, nnd banishing the varied ills that result from a poisoned and impure condition of the life stream. If you have any of the varied symp toms of rheumatism, neuralgia, dys pepsia, liver complaint, kidney disease, eczema, or salt rheum, a few bottles of Paine's Celery Compound used at this time will rapidly dispel all trouble and danger.
