Mr. Stockwell closed his address yester
day with remarks that evoked the appro
bation of the audience. Mr Stock foil
will be ono of the lecturers to-morrow.
Under tho head of miscellaneous County
Superintendent Weiss presented a number
of questions wtlch Miss Seegmiller very
intelligently and gracefully answered. In
answer as to what grade lessons in drawing
should be given Miss Seegmiller answered
that it should be commenced in the first
grade, as soon as tho child enters tho school
and should bo continued through all the
Miss Seegmiller, by tho way, is a Cana
diau by birth and was educated in tb,
schools of lhatcountry. She is eviJentlj
a Canadian-American, for she possesses all
the intelligence and grace of that type ol
raco. A resident of Qrand Rapids, Michi
gan, for six years, tho lady passed lruiu the
primary school to tho prlcipalship, and
now holds an important public school po
sition in Alleghany City
Miss Seegmiller touched a popular chord
when she spoke of tho admission of pupil
duriDg tho school term. Mr. Whiimor,
principal of the schools at 'ho elevated
town of Frackville, stated tuat tho School
Board of that placo bad adopted a rule by
which pupils are admitted during the first
two weeks of the term, first two weeks of
December and first two weeks of March.
It also stated that Berwick and
Minersvillo have adopted a similar system.
Mr. Sweeney, of Mlnersville, made an
address on the proportion, maintaining
that "law is -law" and tho directors and
others connected with the school districts
must abide the consequences.
Under the head of "miscellaneous"
several questions propounded by teachers
by manuscript wore answered by Mi-s
Seegmiller to satisfactorily that applause
marked the lady's departure from tho
Superinlondont Houck failed to give the
Instruction announced by the programme,
bat ho gracefully led the assemblage in
song and the County Superintendent dis
missed tbo audience for recess.
Tho aftornoon session was opened by
Hiss Seexmillor. who continued her in
struction on drawing and held the un
broken interest of the auditors.
Dr. Balliot continued bis instiuction on
numbers and was warmly applauded as ho

After hoaring instructions from Miss
Seegmiller and Dr. Balllot yesterday after
noon the teachers in attendance at tbo
county institute in Ferguson's theatre
llsloned to Dr. Stockwoll's Instructions for
teaching Unitod States history. The ad
dross was a thoroughly patriotic ono and at
times Dr. Stockwell grew eloquent. In

THIS MORNINU'8 SESSION.
Superintendent Iiouck was on hand
promptly this morning and opened the
session by leading the Institute in singing.
Miss Seegmiller again took up the sub
ject of drawing. Dr. Stockwell spoke on
school management, and Dr. Balliet con
tinued his talk on arithmetic. The asking
and answering of questions and a genoral
discussion of the . next occupied the atten

Frank P. Spieso, of Tamaqua, road a
paper on "Aro County Institutes, as now
conducted, of practical benefit to touchers? '
Mr. Spiese was of the opinion that the
returns for the amount of money expended
on county institutes are not sufficient, lie
said he felt tbat local Institutes should be
encouraged, but tho county gatherings
should be abandoned.
Dr. Lockner, of Schuylkill Haven, ro
fretted that any doubt should ariso at titil
late day as to the valuoot county institute
Tho charge that men aro brought as in
structors to the institutes who do not under
stand the wants in the public schools ol
tne respective district was without founda
tion. What are tho teachers in tho rural
districts going to do if you abolish the
county Institute? Put it to a vote of tbo
teachers and see if thoy will vote that the
county institute is a failure. I hope that
no resolution condemning tho county in
stiluto will be passed by this body to-day
Let them have their county institutes and
let eveiy wide awake city and borough
have their local institutes. As to Mr
Spiese's suggestion that the mojiey which
could be saved by tho abolition of tbo
county institutes could go tn a fund for
pensioning old school teachers., Dr.
Leckner said ho did not consider a school
teacher entitled to a pension any mure
ihan tho man who works in tho mines.
David A Jones, Esq., thought that Ihe
advancement made in educational circles is
too groat to permit the abolishment ol
county institutes. But tbore has been a
systematic effort to force tho arguments ol
hired instructors down tho throats of
teachers and then deprive them of indo
pendonce of opinion. Moro time should be
given at the institute to hoaring from tho
teachers what should be done to improv
our school system. If this is done tho cry
against the county institutes will soon die
out. Take the shackles from the teachers
and give them an opportunity to be heard
Mr. Spiese spoke again and said if you
are going to encourage your teachers you
must do it practically. Pensions should be
offered to keep the good teachers within
the ranks. Pensions would induce teacher
to make their profession a life work. It
would bo solidifying tho corps of teachers
Teaching in the public schools should bo
raised to a moro exalted standard as a pro
fession thau a mere stepping stono to some
other businoee. Devote more time to tho
district institutes. It is a good thing for
tho teachers of the county to get togetbor
once in a while, but there should be a
meeting of tho teachers In each district
every week. The tenor of my paper doo
not say tbat county institutes are not doing
any good, but it does say that such Inst!

Thomas ltalrd ipoko lor the district and

demns the institutes shows tbat he doos not

would be raved by the abolishment of tho

would have to bo paid for teaching during
tho period they aro now attending tho
institutes. Tho more frrquent you got
