It is a cr.itificali.in to know that the

the people before receiving the assent J
of the jeoptc to tb-ir work, has been j

derision Without tbe thought of a j

Teacher' In-tltute-4 Tlslt to
it on the Ei enlnp of Thank---rivlugr
Only a generatios of people have
passed away into the never-ending un
known future world siuce the Common
School System wss espoused aud cham
pioned Ly Governors Wolf and llitner,
both of them of German extraction.
In our day and generation wc do not
yet fully comprehend the scope of tbe j
Biiods and the benevolence of the hearts '
of Woif aod Ritner, that moved tiicu)
to witliHtand the opposition of a well
meaning, but highly b goted, t rejudic-d
and ignoran. people, so that the Com
it i on School System might be establish
ed in this Commonwealth.
They were not time-servers ; they
worked for the good of coming gener-;
We are now scarcely more than get
ting a glimpse of tbe great go;d that is
to flow from the system, if it be kept
within its natural channel, and be not
turned into some other system that con
tains tbe gerci of au evil that in time
will develop abuses thst cannot fail to
outweigh all the good it has ever done.
Among the ch:ef features of the sys
tern is the Teachers' Institute. By vir
tue of ofnee, the County Superintendent
is its Pre-ideut. Its .bjct is vsried, but
in the main it is to give teachers an op
portunity of an interchange of opiuian,
and allow them to strengthen tbe bonds
of friendship by a clo.'-er acquaintance
and familiarity themselves with a rou
tine of business is a publij atoetubly,
&c, all of which is very well, and by a
reflex influence lucre than compensates
for the loss of time by tbe teacher while
attending the Institute.
This same feature, under different
names, tins thiough every system of
religion and government lad parly
lu religion we Cud it iu tbe Synod
Presbytery, Copfereuoe and ecclesias
tical todies with other names.
la government, we Bud it ia mere
binding form, ia Congress, Legislatures
aud ( abinet meetings.
In parties we Cud it in conventions
aud other political bodies; and we find
it in the council meetings of tbe North
Autcricau Indian, ludced the feature
is natural to every organization, wheth
er of civihzed or uncivilized men, and
the Cvmuiou School System could not,
in the nature of thing-, exist long with
out developing the feature in some way.
No more appropriate name tbau
"Tescbers' Inctitntes" has suggested
itself to designate the assemblies, an
nually, of the teachers of tbe respec
tive counties of this Common wealth.
Last wrt-k bad been set apart as the
proper one for holding the annual In
stitute for this county, and Monday tbe
day for its opening. Accordiug to pro
gramme busiuess was commenced at 1
o'clock 1. M., under most favotalic
auspices. Eighty eigb't teacher,
number of ex-teachers, and (till more,
a riuaiber of teachers from other coon
tics were in attendance, which,- When all
uombered, considerably exceeded one
An unusual interest from the begin
ning centered in the Institute, and
found no abatement from that day to
the last one, Friday.
On Monday evening the questioo of
Compulsory Education was discussed.
Of Ibe ciiiius vf tbo town J. Lyons
was tbe only oce who took a part in its
discussion. Tbe despotic system bad a
uumber of advocates.
Prof. W. W. Woodruff, of Bucks
county, was in attendance at all tbe
meetings of the Institute, and took an
active part in diseasing questions with
local celebrities. lie delivered a lec
ture on "Music," whieb ia bighly spoken
of by those who besrd it ; one on ''Lan
guage ;" one on Failure and Success
of Teaching ;" one on " Spelling and
Pronunciation ;" and it is proper, just
here to observe, while the subject of
pellingsnd pronunciation is mentioned,
tbit H. McMeen asked a number of
questious and deliveted seme remarks
on the spelling aai pronunciation of
tbe word "Imperturbable." Mr. V ocd
ruff also lectured on "The General
Management of Sebools," aud on Geo
Dr. T. L. Griiwold, Principal of
Blooinsburg Norma' Seheol, was also in
attendance a day or two. He lectcred
ou Anatomy." and bad a skeleton with
him to belter enable bun to explain tbe
sjlj-cl to his audience To say the
assembly was oniy interested in the
lecture does cot express the sentiment
or feeling f tbe people who saw the
skeleton and beard tbe Professor speak
of it. They were excited. They bad
never witnessed such an exhibition be
fore. He also lectured on the Ven
tilation of School Booms,' and ou
Physical versus Mental Training."
Ihrtctors and.citir.ens from different
parts of the eonnty were in attendance,
and thus wbo expressed tbemseUes.
pronounced it tbe most complete Insti
tute ever held ia Juniata county. Such
expressions were a merited compliment
(o tbe present Superintendent, aud
doubtless ' cheered and thrilled the
heart aud elevated the mind of Mr.
Lloyd, tbe late Superintendent, wh d'.d
so n.nch for the schools in this connty,
to know that tbe work has not retro
graded, and that the mantle be so hon
orably wore, and so recently put off,
has not fallen on unworthy shoulders.
His besrt is yet in the work, and not
withstanding bis impaired health be
came once more to see hew the work to
which he ave bis time aud best days
is progressing. He was present at the
Institute on Friday.
Prof. David Wilson, proprietor and
President of Airy View Academy, and
wbj has no superior as au Academic
teacher in Pennsylvania, was in attend
ance on Director's day, and addressed
tbe Institute on questions that came be
Cspt. Mcflellsn delivered speech
to support of a rule advocated by di
rectors of tbis borough, to exclude pu
pils who hive missed attending school
two days in succession, unless returned
to school again by express permission of
the board of directors.
The Institute adj mrncd on Friday
evening, after listening to a lecture
subject, " Honor" by"J. C. Ami-, of
tbe Pittsburg Comneicui! newspaper.
Our bu-itiesi relationship was of such
a cWacfr list week that we bad to
forego tbe pleasure of attending the
Institute, excepting the merest peep at
if, as on one or two occasicuj wc passed
the Court II mse. On.Thnrsdsy even
ing the evening of Thanksgiving day
however, we determined to be precut.
We went early, expecting by so doing
to get a favorably located place lo sit.
To out surprise such desirable places,
as well as all undeirnbie places, bad
an earnest aud eager accnpiut, and all
on the qui vine. Tbey were looking for
t!:e lion of tho occasion. They were
expecting Mr. Arms, who was to lec
ture on "Boys." There was uo place
left but good standing room." Mr
Lyons having an office quite conveni
ent to the t curt Il.-u-r, which is quite
au item for a practicing lawyer wbo is
con. polled to cot iantly oscillate be
tween tl.vj Temple of J ustice and bis
office in the dispen-ing of law to bis
clients. Ws stepped into it aud found
him busy at work at " legal lore."
which Arms says is as hard work as
breaking stone ; aud as ht has bad ex
perience at work at law, and possibly at
breaking stone too, he ought to know ;
but be that as it may, we borrowed a
chair from Mr. Lyons and went baek to
the Institute and saw our company
comfortably seated. The next thing
was a seat for ourself, which we found
oo tbe steps at the left of the Judge's
seat. "A bad place for you," said a
voice in a wuispai, as ws sat down;
"don't you see you are on the left side
of the J udgment seat !" 1 ruly
enough, it is so hen, but we hope aud
pray it may not be so in tbe next world,"
we breathed back in a whisper, ind then
we looked and saw between ns and the
J udge's seat a lawyer aud a Danker, and
to our immediate left was a preacher,
and we could not help but note the
order cf tbe tow which was as follows :
First, the banker ; Second, the lawyer ;
Third, tbe editor ; Fourth, the preach
er, and we did not refrain from ob
serving to ourself that the preacher,
as in all other places there, too,
held the most advantageous position
by being tne furthest removed from
the law, and we confess, too, that we
were a good deal liko tbe Pharisee and
forgot our own miserable situation and
pitied tbe lawyer and banker who were
so near tbe seat of Justice. We broke
from this serious vein of r flection and
elevated oar eyes, and away off toward
tbe north side of tbe room, near the
orean, which Mis Annie Wise man
aged, all say, during the sessions of the
lustitute with so much skill, sat Mr.
Bobison, the efficient Superintendent of
Common Schools of this county. Tbe
intelligence, integrity, and fixedness of
purpose ef tbe "old Covenanters." from
wL'iu be is sprung, modestly beamed
from his fsce, and caused thoso wbo did
not know huu to inquire of him. 1'rof.
Woodruff, with his attractive face and
quick ejes, sat near, and J. C. Arms,
the lion of the occasioa, whose face
does not, excepting under searching
looks, bears oorrect evidence u the
treat talent of which be is possessed,
was also one of the group, and D. '"Ti "T fnJ''JZ

afforded us, Mr. Arms was introduced
and launched out on his lecture ou
"K.ijs," and that was an end te inter
ests iu other directions.
Arms went back to the Deluge, and
away beyond, and began with tbe boy
Adam, whom he uufolded iu the regu
lar orthodox sty le, leaving out and en
tirely ignoring Parwio with his tadpole
and monkey theory, but reeognising,
definitely a special creation, and thence
be pleasantly aud humorously delin
eated the boy, steadily , along up to this
time, and Suisbed with bis own expe
rience as a boy. One of tbe most stri
king qualities cf the lecture is, that it
puts the moral traiuing of tbe boy far
above tucro iniel'ec'.uil aoquiremeu ts.
Everybody was highly delighted.
Some one not realizing how diSeult
it i, without preparation to speik after
a set lecture or speech has been deli
vesed started a call for E. 1 Tcrker,
a.'Tcr some besitaucy sbich only served
to multiply the calls from all quarters
in the room, Mr. Parker took the floor.
A look or two of embarrassment, a few
common piaJe words to get the bearing I
of the situation, which was soon done,
a:d then tLe words flowed freely, and !
the thoughts of bis mind rippled i
out over Ins face in advance of words,
plainly indexed what wss coming wheth
er words of humor, sarcasm, or whole
some advice and instruction. Among a
tnousand speakers few can be found
with tiie facial cxpres-non that Mr.
Parker is endowed with. He docs not
speak iu a mechanical way, simply by
moving his lips and uttering words tbat
must carry their owu meaning.
With bin every sentiment and word
reflects itself through bis face and
stamps its meaning into the feeling
of the bearers. If it be jest, or
uuuior or whatever oilier thought, you '
see it thrusting itself through every
lineament of bis countenance before
you hear it expressed iu words, you see
and bear the thought near about one
au'l the same time. Of course be was I
soon ou the topmost wave of popuiar j
applause, ringing peals of laughter and
hearty applause greeted him time after
time. Tbe stage aud the play-loviug
and play-going world missed a great
light when be took tbe law for a piof
fefsion, but his own native county gain
ed a good lawyer, ou the couclusion of
bis speech tbe institute adjourned aud
we with our better half cu oue arm and
tbe borrowed chair oo the other
walked home talking about boys and
meu and how essily they may miss tbe
the highest places for which they were
fined by nature.
