SESdNS OP THE

V interesting lectures Delivered Yes

Tll features of yJMteldii.v' sessions
of the teachers' Institutethe over
shadowing features were the leetutes
mi poyoluiloKy h.V Prof. K. I.. Kemp,
prinulpul of Host Stroudsbtirg Normal
School. No more Intensely interesting
talks have been hoard nl tin Inslllu o
In Cnrboitdulo than these lectures, made
doubly valuable because of tin IitJou
tlon In ono wny or another or the fruits
of Prof. Kemp's wldo eijueutlonul ex
perience. Ills side observations, his
' timely comments mid his pleasing
humor wen; tho elements that so hap
pllv combined to make his talks worthy
of the undivided attention and hearty
co-operation of the teacher,". ,
Prof. Kemp's lecture were so lined
with repeated discussions of topics that
suggested themselves as hi; proceeded
"that their real value Is lost when trans
ferred to type. Some of the observa
tions, however, will he read with in
terest by others than the teachers, to
whom. only. It might he said, tht tech
nical features are ot value.
At the forenoon session, la discussing
'The Kxtcrnal Conditions to Atten
tion," Prof. Kemp, unions: his obser
vations or expressions of opinion, said:
The man cannot net independently
of the body. Anyone who says so, says
what Is sheer nonsense. Mental activ
ity Is dependent upon physical condi
tion; the brnlu function In mental ac
tion depends upon the supply of blood
and the quality of it.
"Young children are as sensitive to
the weather as animals. We. teachers,
are guilty of the pedagogical sin ot
becoming cross at children who under
certain weather condition.-! im rest
lessly active, depressed or languid. AVe
Vhould have such control of ourselves
and should have that enthusiasm which
would III! the room with sunshine if
none come from without.
"The teacher's health and disposition
are factors In attention. When we are
not well and things don't seem to go
the right way, we blame it onto the
"There should be a state law com-.
pelllng teachers to take sufllcicnt exer
cise. The nature study is one of the
greatest blessings in recent school life,
for It gives us the. greatest opporuniiles
of exercise and relaxation that is the
most beneficial because of its ever
"The school work in Pennsylvania is
not yet highly organized. The work is
not in harmony. Some of the students
who come to normal schools llnd that
they have already gone through the
junior work in the High school. This
produces a lack of Interest, because ul'
mi abseuco of novelty. I have taught
In two Normal school.1: and know that
this has greatly interfered with the
progress or these students. The injury
was shown in results for a. long time.
"Teachers are the most consei vatlvo
among all professions. It takes several
hundred years In some cases to get a
proposition in our minds.
"The author of the text-book on
physiology sin? when he uses the illus
tration of the telegiaph system to show
thu workings of the ivrvous system.
Thu Intricacies of the telegraph system
are harder to penetrate than the
understanding of the nervous system
if the arrangement of the nerves be
explained. This text-book Illustration
is stuff and nonsense chiefly.
"The ability to ask questions Is one
of tlie tine arts of teaching.
"When I went to college the students
kueiv just what questions each would
got. Tills system has changed some
what, but If any ono still follows it,
remember that tills giving eut-and-
drieil questions cuts attention to pieces.
"The ability to teach is measured by
ability to' do good woik with your mIu
dents with ralrly good material,
"Nluc'teriths of the lustiness among
pupils is not due to a lack of enthusi
asm; R is not a willful fault, but it
disease, a misfortune, that should ex
cite nnd receive our warmest sympathy.
"We (hid that the girls In our Nor
mal schools do more work now, be
cause they weigh more mid are In
belter health. Before, the state oliloluls
divided the ijourse, girls used to work
tlicm.elves Into shadows studying and
fretting over examinations. Jn Urn last
year, they would havo to qualify In
ubottl twenty-live studies. This left
them without any vital energy, Within
a few years special gymnastics have
been added. Among those Is basket
ball. Tlie result of this athletic Idea Is
belter woik, because tlie girl students
havo hem built up In health and have
a greater store or energy.
"Tlie Individual test of cyeslaht Is
necessary among pupils, as weak vision
Is a big drawback to the pupil, whose
defect cannot ho ascertained In any
other way, since he won't admit It.
"Tlie secret of the growth In friend
ship Is not so much what you do for
your friend as what he does for you.
This -applies to the lelatlons of the
teacher and her pupils.
"Perhaps, one of the greatest tilings
accomplished In pyschology Is that
physicians have given us one of the
greatest marvels In modern knowledge
In locating with dellnlteuess the nerve
centres of the brain."
In the afternoon lecture, Prof, Kemp
gave an Interesting explanation of per
ceptions and sensations from the psy
chological sense, demonstrating that
all qualities are sensations, the effect
produced In the brain centers.
Miss Hugarly gave two lectures on
reading, and Miss Hyde addressed the
teachers In the forenoon and afternoon

who having observed the goats of his
Hock skip about and display other signs
of Intoxication after eating the cof

This discovery proved the poor shep

strong and excessively, particularly by
the Parisians that it was found to In

Since that period, Its growth has
