THE TEAGHBRS UNANIMOUS FOR IT
Procoedings at tho Directors' Moot
Ins and Institute Yesterday
Afternoon Pottsvillo and
Glrardvllio Look Horns.
Mr. Houck addressed tho dlr-tnra' n n
vention immediately after Caairnian 1) A.
Jones opened tho afternoon session y-str-
day. Tho older he gets ho finds tboro Is more
for him to learn. Hii found this e-pecially
truo with regard to the institute evening lee
turors. There is always room for Improve
monts In Institutes. Improvements can be
tnado in all our churches. Tho defeating
of tho resolution favoring the abolishment
of tho county institutes was an excellent
act. There aro no brighter, more active,
or moro industrious teachers than tboje in
Schuylkill county. Where is tho ex.
travaganco in connection with teachers
when you give tbcm an average salary of
$218.50 and $10 for attending institute? Be
liberal toward thetechers and education. 1
have seon work done by tho children of the
Shenandoah schools that is not surpassed in
the Academy of Design in Pittsburg.
You can't measure an institute with a yard
stick or moasuro tho mind by bushols.
You have ladies and gentlemen in this
county who can tako th-ir places among
the toachers of Philadelphia. It is tho
work of the institute They listen to tho
instructors at tho county institutes and do
the work in the district institutes. You
must stand up for your toachers. You
have a bright cot of them. Wo mustn't
ask too much of tbeso teachers. They're
not angels. Mr. Spiese is sincere in all he
says, no doubt, but ho has not studied tho
institute question thoroughly. This in
stitute Is a grand thing and gives tho
teachers a cbanco to hear the groatest men
born in; tho country. They would never
hear them, perhaps, if it wero not for the
institute Now suppose tho institute should
do this, "Itesolved that directors' conven
tions aro failures?" Hind your own
business, eh7 IAiSy Schuylkill county
hasanamo, and who has given it? "Why
the teachers. Don't let the institute go.
It is a great thing and has done too much
to be cast away. If you want to bo strong
you want to meet together. If you want
to make a statu groat you must use money.
It tho teachers don't get tho monoy some
body olso will, and the Lord knows the
teachers get little enough. It will never
do for us to let cur teachors go out and
say, "I taught school for 2 18.C0 a year in
a place whore thoy said county institutes
are failures. .Make your country great by
beiDg liberal. I have hoard some men
speak In my boyhood and what I heard
inspired mo throughout my whole lifo. So
it is with the teachers at tho county in
stitute. Don't be niggardly with your
teachers when the state is so liberal with its
appropriations. Stand by tho boys and
girls and young women and young men
Mako your public schools a power. For
tho sake of tho cause and your own I am
glad you did not vote that county Institutes
aro failures. It would have beon a mis
take It pays to give tho childron tho very
best in the lino of education. Don't be ton
harsh on tho County Superintendent. One
of tho hardest duties to perform is to suc
cessfully conduct a county institute.
At tho conclusion of Mr. Ilouck's ad
dress the resolution adopted at the meeting
of tho superintendents and principals on
Tuesday afternoon, limiting the number of
pupils for ca:b teacher to fifty, was read.
Dr. Lockner move! that the resolution
be adopted as tho sense of the mooting.
Objection was raised that tho rule would
apply well enough to graded scboo e, but
not to rural districts. The motion pre

Anthony O'Donnell, of Newcastle.
On motion, the paper was accepted and
filed. It was as follows :
"As a remedy bouds should consist of
seven, fivo, or three mombors, tholattor
number preferred, because it would givo
tho secretaryship to each director in suc

for ono pear. Iu such a cuse tho board
should decide by vote and by having the
stato law say that each diroctor shall vote
on all questions submitted to the board.
Tho secretaryship would compensalo each
director for bis services. This should be
so, as a good discharge of tho duty calls for
tltno and thought. I would also recom
mend that tho treasurers of school districts

Members of tho instituto were notified by

Tho naming of a placo at which the next
institute shall be hold was then declared in

Col. Monaghan mado an appeal for Gi
rardville and presented tho following in
support of his claim :
"Jlcsolvcd, That we, tho Board of Trade
of thu borough of Girardville, in special
session assembled, cordially and earnestly
invito tho county superintendent, officers
and teachers of tho county instituto now in
to eion at Shenandoah, to hold their ses
sion nf 1892 in Girardville.
"Resolved, That we call upon tho offl
cors and teachers interested to aid in giving
us an opportunity to display a hospitality
second to non in the county."
Col. Monaghan supplemented tho reso
lutions with an address in which ho stated
that Girardville would be connected next
year with other towns in the valloy by the
Mr. Bernor, of Pottsvillo, moved that
the fixing of a place bo laid over until somo
time next October and tho votes could bo
taken from the teachers by the County
Superintendent. Tho motion was not sec
onded. T. G. Jonos, of St. Clair, then prcsentod
tbe followiag resolution :
Itesolved, That we. the teachors of
Schuylkill county, in convention as
tFMb.cd, as tho result of our personal ex
perience, desire to afll m our loynlty to the
county institute; that we have tound it tu
bo th greato-t practical benefit to us and
our ecboolt; and that tho results aehiuvvd
in our schools of this county (except In
thoso schools whose teachers undervalue
the work of tho instituto and, consequently,
neglect to avail themselves of its advan
tage"), aro tbe best evidences of the ex
ui'llent o laracter of that work; that wn es
pecially indorse the idea of pr'stintlng to
leacbir fundamental principles and leaving
him tu make such application thereof as
his circumstances may demand; that the
opportunities afforded for nrofos'ional and
social intorcou so are invariable as a means
of inspiration and uplifting; tbat the pres
ence and aid of leading educators from
abroad are he'plul In the largest sense
through the contact thus given us with tbe
b .t educational thought and practice in
tbe country at large: that, in short, we
heartily approve of the general plan upon
which tho institute is conducted.

Monaghan and Thomas Balrd, in supp irt
of tho resolutions, a rising vole was taken
and there was not a vote in tho whole
gathering against tho adoption of the

Miss Secgraillor rosumed her instructions
on drawing. In answor to questions on tho
preparation of Clay It is as clean as tho
lead pencils and should never get upon
desks, fingers, etc. Put in; a cloth, tioup
tbe corners, put it in a orock and soak with
water. Tho clay will turn out in a loaf.
Then, after fifteen or twenty minuto-i, put
it into a second cloth. By these means
there need bo no complaint about dirty
work, Piecoa of oil cloth, drawing
papor, or even slates aro bettor than tho
ordinary clay boards, which aro heavy,
clumsy and noisy. Pussing inatorials tu
the pupils can be accomplished in two
minutes and never should take longer than
that in a welt regulated school. Never uso
elates. You mako so much trouble for the
teachors who come alter you and nevor get
good drawings. Tho touch on papor is
altogether different from the touch on
stales. What is the UitTeronco between tbo
