Special to Tho CITIZEN.
Equinunk, Pa., Nov. 3. Tho
teachers of Manchester township
met at Equinunk October 29, for n
local institute. Tho lnstituto woe
called to order by Superintendent
Kochlcr, who after a short talk ex
plaining the purpose of the meet
ing, called upon Charles R. Glllow
to give his ideas of tho require
ments of eighth grado work.
Among many pertinent suggestions
of tho "Course of Study" reviewed
by Mr. Glllow wo note tho follow
ing: "Teach not only how to read
but what to read." He advocated
tho reading of biography, and em
phasized tho importance of tho
The eighth grade Grammar work
should cover use of phrases, syn
tax, conjugation of verbs, synonyms,
homonyms and plenty of composi
tion. Teach pupils use of dictionary.
Use dictation exercises to teach
spelling. Require much review
work of previous grades In arith
metic and add bank discount, square
and cube root and mensuration to
the work already mastered.
The important parts of Geogra
phy are: Physical features, people,
products, climate, etc.
After discussion by the institute,
this talk was followed by a class
drill in "Phonetics," led by Miss
Watson. This was one of the most
pleasing features of the day, and tho
little people taking part in tho drill
did finely. Many of the teachers
expressed the Intention of procur
ing a copy of the little guide book,
"Ward's System of Teaching Phone
tics," which Miss Watson uses.
The afternoon session was open
ed by a talk, "Seventh Grade Work"
by Ralph Glllow. Ho mentioned
the importance of biography as a
basis of the reading and history les
sons, advising that only such sub
jects as had clean records bo used.
Composition is to be combined with
the work In Grammar, and special
emphasis is to be put upon the use of
grammatical rules in the composi
tions. Addition, subtraction, multi
fractions and decimals, relation of
decimals to percentage, interest, and
denominate numbers wero cited as
suitable for the seventh grade. The
speaker outlined the work In His
tory, Geography and Physiology ac
cording to the course of study, men
tioning essential parts which can
not be given for lack of space.
Ada Doherty's subject was "Sixth
Grade Work." She commented fav
orably on the practice of requiring
monthly memory work. Decimals,
denominate numbers and mensura
tion cover most of the work In
arithmetic except the review. Men
tal Arithmetic is best taught with
During the term of 1910-1911,
the work in geography is mainly a
study of Europe, South America,
Miss Doherty closed with a short
description of tho course in Physi
ology and the next subject, "Fifth
Grade Work," was immediately tak
en up In order that the work of the
Fifth and Sixth grades might be dis
cussed together. The main points
of this talk by Addle S. Rauner
"Use the reading lesson as the
medium by which all departments
In English are strengthened. Use
the silent reading lesson. Empha
size oral language work. Besides
the review work in Arithmetic teach
decimals, denominate numbers, fac
tors and bills and accounts.
"Use the free arm movement only
"Teach geography of the continent
by author's plan first, and use the
course of study outline for topical
review. Keep the work In Hygiene
Mrs. Frlsble next read a paper en
titled "Public Health" which was
enjoyed by all. She suggested
many things which might be done
for the betterment of tho homo and
school. Better methods of ventila
tion, more physical exercise and
more pleasure for children and
mothers were urged as necessities.
Owing to the lateness of tho hour
tho rest of tho program was not
given. Tho remaining numbers

General Leonard wood Dcclnrcs
That tho Cnuso of Temperance
Has Not Been Promoted.
Washington, D. C, Nov, 4.
Dropping from tho heights of tacti
cal maneuvers and tho finer points
of tho war game, Major General
Leonard Wood has submitted an ex
traordinary report dealing with the
commonplaces of the enlisted man's
Tho report was written by Gener
al Wood as the commander of tho
department of the east, but was
submitted to the adjutant general,
after he becamo chief of staff and
therefore is taken as criticism by tho
active head of tho army.
Within the sphere of the enlisted
man, General Wood in this report
touches upon threo points; the sol
dier's canteen or post saloon; his
uniform particularly his shoes
and the desirability of establishing
a general service corps of men em
ployed to do all the non-military
Would Re-establish Canteen.
The crisp and blunt recommenda
tion of General Wood that tho army
canteen bo re-established is ono with
which most every army officer would
agree but not ono probably which
all would incorporate In an official
report. General Wood bases this
suggestion upon the assertion that
the canteen Is for the best interests
of tho army.
Several years ago the W. C. T.
U. and other temperance organiza
tions succeeded in putting through
Congress an order abolishing the
post saloon where the soldier bought
light beer, tobacco and played pool
and cards. Since then the American
soldier has gone outside of his post
when he wished to buy liquor. As
a consequence the gates of the
army posts are now fringed with
a series of green swinging doors on
buildings from which sound the dis
cords of electric pianos and in which
the soldier is not limited to beer
but is Induced to drink cheap brands
The soldiers themselves are bit
terly opposed to those parasite sa
loons outside of posts and in some
instances have wrecked them.
Charges of robbery have been made
against the proprietors of some of
them. Many officers of the army
now believe that it is far better to
allow the soldier to drink beer in
side a post than to drink poor whis
ky outside. General Wood openly
declares himself an advocate of the
Soldiers' Shoes Considered.
Discussing the dress of the enlist
ed men, General Wood lays great
stress upon tho need of a more
careful inspection of the soldiers
shoes. He goes so far as to say
that the present proportion of ill
fitting shoes among the private
soldiers of the Infantry branch of
the army seriously handicaps their
efficiency in field service.
"Reports of feet Inspection show
a very large proportion of Ill-fitting
shoes," says Wood, "with the re
sulting condition of feet which
would quickly incapacitate these
soldiers for duty in case of field
"This is so common an occurrence
as to warrant the issuance of gener
al instructions to apply throughout
the army to tho effect that the fit
ting of shoes shall bo supervised by
an officer, and that there shall be at
least ono monthly inspection of the
men's feet by tho medical officers
with a view to correcting such con
ditions of unsoundness as exist and
calling attention to those cases
where It Is evident that the men's
shoes do not fit them. This is a
subject which demands serious and
The suggestion is made in tho re
port that a third army reserve bo
established composed of men who
have been honorably discharged
from the regular service or tho mili
tia who could be paid nominal sal
aries by tho war department. They
would keep the department con
stantly advised of their addresses.
Tho only duty for theso reserves
suggested by General Wood is that
they attend a yearly maneuver.
Thus there would always be at tho
call of the army a reserve body of
men who in tho past havo received
military instructions, freshened up
every year with Dold maneuvers.
Minor Offenses Condoned.
Severe condemnation is made of
tho too frequent practice of hauling
a soldier up for trial for some min
"It indicates," says tho report,
"an incapacity on tho part of com
manding officers to understand the
human side of command, and re
sults only too often in breaking
down tho Bolt respect of tho soldier
and rendering him careless of re
suits. General Wood says that ho
favors tho establishment of a sys
tern of discipline for unruly sold
iers looking to their reform as well
as their punishment. He objects
to the application of tho term "con
vict" to soldiers who are dishonor
ably discharged from the service be
cause of their having been convicted
of flvo previous offences which are
In many Instances minor offences.
This, he says, is npt to destroy In
a largo mcasuro their future usO'
fulness as citizens.
General Wood recommends fre-
quont travel for field officers in or
dor that they may observo tho man'
euvers of well-trained bodies of
troops. Ho suggests that as many
officers as possible be given an op
portunity of observing tho work of
tho European armies.
Well, tho great election Is now
a thing of tho past. Wo are still

quick notice. Our prices aro right

"You know, I'm not easily Btlrred

I know Is that It stirred up feollngs

Great waves of emotion swept over

Origin of "Three Balls" Sign.
The origin of tho threo balls In
front of a pawnbroker's office, says
the Now York World, was a corpora
tion of Italian merchants, known as
"Lombards," who established loan of
fices In Franco and England during
tho thirteenth century. Their "armji,'
or emblems, (or those of tho Medici
family, which was foremost In the cor
poration), were threo golden balls.
Tho presont "three ball" sign is sup
posed to be derived from that.
