ly Fcntmes of the Flist Day of
the Institute Other Talks by Miss
Lauia Hagaity and Dr. Thompson.
Happy chcumstanccs surtounded the
opening session ot tho unnuul institute
of ih C'atbondale tjlj school teacheis
In the Cential school building etei
day afternoon. Nutuie was exceeding
ly kind In the splendid day Hint Invit
ed one lo go alnoad and when the
tciichtrs wete assembled they found de
lightful envlumincnts in the le-dopor-ottd
u utl lelitinlslied itsseinbly mom,
Thougli tlie changes made since last
jear weio not numeious, they were
pleasingly effective, combining to make
the meeting plate of the week attract
ive and cosj', iheei I ul and lestful.
Thei was the oustoiuat.v delay on
the opening daj, so Hint it wns past
Z o'clock when City Superintendent of
Schools ninier II. (birr called the In
stitute to in del. Pel Imps the talk of
gi palest public inteiest and which
stitick a popular ihoid, judging fiom
the adveisp ciitlclsm generallj, was the
last addiess of the session, by Prof.
Ueoige Hull, ol the society of Jlilleis
11Ip State Xorni.il chool, Insttuctor of
liuitlieinalics in that Instutlon.
Pi of. Hull's subject was "Higher
Mnthematlus," but befoie he entcted
into Its discussion, he said, by way of
piefacp. some pointed things about the
met looked eiiiikulum of schools. "We
are teaching entirely too much ai Ith
metio and too much nnilhoinatlcs, pm
tlculaily aiithmetlc. Il .sti Ikes me quite
foiclltl.v that In some paits of our stale
theie Is an endcavoi to deal out too
much. And I would include for that
ailthmetic and mathematics. It Is a
sad lact Hint tlieie Is any notion that
can gel a boy ready for life quicker than
our own (ounliy. tv would seem to
mo that a boy bote In C'atbondale with
all tlie school advantages that he has,
could be leady to take up life's battle
as soon as n lad nbioad. But this is not
so. Fuller tlie Itiitish flag the j'outh
is ready for lite two jeais quicker than
one of ouis. An analysis of study of
tlie Fngllslt sj'stetn would lead to tlie
conclusion that the best stiength of
education is to teach a few things and
teach them more thoioughlj-. The nivis-tei-
of one subject gives tlie .phlt that
leads to the masteij- of evety subject."
Pi of. Hull then i elated a peisonal ex
peiltnce that clcai lj' illustrated his
point. After lp.ulng school, he decided
to be a farmei, though he knew noth
ing about fanning. Theie was nothing
for him to sow but tin nip seeds and he
sowed them in plenty. Soon lie had a
bed of growing turnips. Adls-ers, who
know about fanning, laughed at him
and warned him that he would have no
turnips unless he weeded out the
crowded bed. He affected a supeilor
knowledge nnd forbade tliprn to carry
out theii pioposed weeding process.
Wheni tlie tin nip harvest time came,
Pi of. Hull said he found he had no
turnips, but a bed full of half giown
This taught him a lesson: That he
was sowing too much seed and leuping
no haivesl. In evety school subject It
is wisdom, lie declined, and it pays
abundantly to find out the cntdinul, the
fundamental pilnelples, and teach them
lnitlitully and thoroughly. This wns
the keynote of his talk, and he illus
ti.ilcd the point by a number of es
Pi of. Hull also paid a beautiful HilA
ul" lo niotheis and incidentally gave a
hint to these patents to attend the ses
sions, width It would leitninly be lo
llielr pioilt to act upon.
"I do not see the best teat hers hmo
today," he said, Theie was a ilppltt of
exclamations, but Piof, Hull anticipat
"That may appear as einbaiiaslug,
but still think you will agteo with
me. I leter to the motheis of jour
"Tho inotlur In the home Is the best
teai licit'. The leason lor this Is thut
she alone po-sesses the gient element
of the teacher. The fundamental Idea
fiv the gieat teacher Is tin, love of the
pit-nt. Tlio history of tho woiid over
and thiough all ages Is that the men
with Hip blggpst hearts wpip the best
teacheis. Co way back in history to
tlio Miistiu. Hp was it stoat leaehei,
becaiisp he loved his disciples. Thomas
Arnold, at Ilugby, wns one of the gient
est teachers, and why? Ilecnuse of his
hue for ills pupils When they would
leave him lo go to Oxford, ho would
supply them each with a set of bonks,"
Thote weia other Intel estlng and vol

AN ENJOYABLE CONCERT.
Brockwny Jubilee Singeis Enteitain
n Big Audience.
The fiiockuny, or Slnyton Jubilee
singeis entertained an immense audi
ence at the Grand last night. It was
the flist number In the Institute
couise and was highly satlsfactoij'.
There weie seven coloied singeis,
four male and tin op female. They
hud a ptogramine that was vaiied
enough. They sang camp meeting
songs, lag-lime selections nnd gae
imitations of chiming bolls, twlng
twanging ot banjos, and the like, that
gteatlj' pleased ami won enthusiastic
applause. Theie was consldetnbie
comedy sandwiched In with the sing
ing. The audience might have sat for
seetal houis longer would the cndtti
ante of the colored folks permit. They
certainly had good nntute enough.
Tonight Hon. George IS. Wendling,
it lecturer of national reputation, will
offer a ticat to the pations of tin
Tunes to Whistle.
"Tlie Chaperons," which will be at the
Giantl Fiiday night, Is famous for its
catchy songs. Theie is "Sambo," Hva
T.inguay's inimitable coon song, "A
Gentle Touch," in which Trlxle Fil
ganzu joins; "The Little Maid Who
Couldn't .Say No," simg by sweet Sally
Fishei : Walter Jones' side-splitting
ditty, "Somehow It Made Me Think of
Home," nnd ntimbets of otheis; but of
all the songs pet haps the one that has
most neaily reached the fleeting lm
moitality of the stieet ballad Is the solo
and chotus, "We'ic All Good Fellows."
It was whistled and hummed last sea
son wherever the play was given, and
It is equally pievalent now.

5cranton's Shopping: Center
You may copy the 'methods of
a 5tore its advertisements, per
haps its goods but you can never
steal its spirit.
The copy is like a photograph
of nature without color lifeless.
From the littlest, baud-embroidered doylies for ijc, up to tbat wonderfully
embroidered and drawn-work bedspread for 70.00, there are gifts of every degree
in the Linen Department, and from nearly every country in the world.
Sometimes two and three countries combine to make a siugle piece, for the
lace will be made iu Switzerlaud and taken to Saxony, and there it will be put on
finely drawn linen done only as the Germans kuow bow while the linen which
they draw comes from Ireland. '
Plain linens, all for use, aud art linens, half for baauty, are gathered here in
great quantities now for your inspection.
g Neck Furs
In early days people who sold
litlle about them their customers
Furs that never grew on an animal's back
found their way into market.
We helped to change these sad conditions;
first, by insisting upon knowing all about the
Furs we handle; and, second, by giving that
knowledge freely to our customers.
Every Fur in the store is sold for just what
Jouvin Gloves, $!-50
Are made for us in Grenoble from our own
designs and patterns it would be strange if with
such care they weren't liner than any other $1.50
Glove. The skins come from animals raised and
cared for in France not from wild goats brought
to France fiom all parts of the globe to be
dressed and then called French skins.
All the newest colors, black and white.
Glace or suede, overseams, three clasps.
Glace or suede, pique sewn, two clasps.
V The most comfortable are ot soft wool cloths.
ft Nowadays they are mostly two-tone plain
CJ color one side and plaid the other; a few years
55 ago they were the same plaid through and
5 through. The two-tone idea gives the designer
JJ a better chance to work, and the coats are licher
S and cozier-looking than they ever were.
S5 The cloth is better. this year, too, and the
Ma making is better we never had as good house
coats as we have this yeai.
The $5 coats are really so good that we
Jfi wont have enough to last till Christmas you'd
V pay $6 for the same coat at other stores.
