thereto. All of our readers are

This can only lxs done by keeping
pace with this progressive age.
One's own individual efforts will
not suffice. What is needed is co
operation. You should keep posted
on all things that you may need to
buy. It is a well established fact
that the consumer (those who buy
at retail) are paying in those United
states from ono to twenty-five per
cent, more than is necessary, simply
from the fact that they do not keep
posted on current prices. How
long could a merchant avoid failure
were he to use such lax methods in
making his purcliases V One would
quickly say such a dealer was a
failure from the beginning, then
why do you use this method in a
small way ? It would cost you but

times in the way of prices on all
staple articles you are apt to use.

The Annual Pike County Teachers'
Institute convened nt the Court
House in Milford on Monday, Nov.
18 at 2o,doek, and was culled to or
der by Count Hupcrintmdont Saw
yer. The institute was ojieiiod with a
responsive reading and singing.
The following were then elected
Miss Minnie Van Akin, vice-president.
J. F. Maloney, secretary.
Miss Florence Case,nssistant secre
tary. John C. Watson, treasurer.
Superintendent Sawyer then de
livered an address and dwelt on the
functions of teachers' institutes, the
importance to teachers of attend
ing, both in tho line of education nnd
also in finances.
Prof, C. H. Albeit, of Bloomslmrg
State Normal School was then intro
duced, taking for his subject, geog
raphy. This tho professor declared
to bo a most important study, nnd
generally most poorly taught. Ho
suggested tho idea of substituting
for our third and fourth readers
other books on elementary science,
written and prepared for such grades
in schools. Ho illustrated by sriying
that a child being able to speak a
word is no proof that a child knows
it, and spoke of tho importance of a
knowledge of relativo positions in
Singing by tho teachers followed.
Prof. Bible, of East Stroudsburg
State Normal School, then talked on
"Oral Language," tho key which
unlocks nil thought of the written
and printed page.
Tho roll was then called nnd 47
teachers responded. Adjourned to
7.!10 p. m.
Tuesday forenoon, Prof. C. II.
Alliert took up the subject of educn -tion
: 1st objin't of education ; 2nd,
nature of material to work on : 3rd,
how to conduct operations ; Eg. tho
carpenter's apprentice should con
sider well tho object of his education
in tliat especial line, and by several
other illustrations showed that bet
tor work can bo accomplished by
careful consideration of tho object.
In particular is this truo of the
teachers, whoso aim should be to
develop all conscious power. Think
ing is seeing relations. Time should
lie spent in finding out the kind of
material we liave to work on, and so
avoid mistakes, and trouble, and
doing better work in the school room.
The afternoon session was opened
with singing, when, I'rof . Bible took
up the subject of school govorment :
Ho said laws nro not made for those
who choose to do right, but for
those who choose to do wrong. The
teacher's aim should bo develop di
rection in tho child, direction in
habits of self control, in self govern
ment.to secure good order,regularity
and application. As means to this
end ho cited mechanical devices,
the seating of pupils, and tluit pro
gress was often retarded by impro
per seating. He spoke also of the
moral training of pupils, and of the
teacher's qualification, confidence,
co-operation. The teacher must have
a positive moral character.
Every act of the soul leaves as an
enduring result an increased power
to act, and the tendency to act in
This tulk was followed by singing
when Prof. Paul began his spelling
match, choosing fifty words from
among a list of five hundred. The

Wednesday evening, Prof . Uouck
spoke to a crowded house, and in
beginning remarked that he never
talked long, seldom exceeding three
hours. This was loudly applauded,
which the speaker said pleased him,
us he scarcely received itut the clone,
His lecture might be styled a plum
pudding, full of luscious juicy froit.
It was replete with wit, humor,
pathos and solid learning. No pen
can do justice to tho inimitable
manners of the speaker, and the
audience was alternately convulsed
with laughter and moved to silent
tears. His subject wns filial obedi
ence and the duty ia rents owed to
their children to give them an
education. His stories of the min
isters, the twins, the forlorn ap
plicants sitting on the root of an oak
tree, tho rag carpet, the man who
tried to mnke a tapestry carpet and
failed until ho hung his sample up
to the sunlight, boarding around and
teaching for $20 per month will all
lie rememliered with pleasure and
will cheer many hearts and homes as
they are recalled in the school room
nnd by tho fire side.
If Prof. Houck lives in years ns
his memory will in the minds of his
hearers he will lie a patriarch indeed.

In the evening, Rev. Ame Venemn,
of Port Jervis, delivered a lecture
replete with wisdom and couched in
scholarly nnd beautif ul language.Ho
said on being introduced by Supt.
Sawyer that tho audience had been
raised very high during the week and
it would now lie his province to let
them down easy. He was glad the
chandelier had fallen, for now with
out seeing the audience he could be
leive ho was r peaking to fathers and
mothers. There was a time to lie
Ikito, a time to die, and a time for
all development between the cradle
nnd the grave, but of rocent years
tho active middlo age of life had
received the most applause, but he
projxisod to deal with childhood.
Paul drew a lesson from childhood,
when ho was a child he sjKike as a
child. The iieriixl of childhood in
these days is made entirely too short.
The boy as soon ns he puts on short
pants is out on the streets puffing a
cigarette. The girl as soon as she can
fairly talk is put in society aping her
elders and crowded into full woman
hood at fifteen. Parents seem anxi
ous for their children to mature,
and frequently so an order that they
may take a place in a shop or store
to make pecuniary gains.
No period in life is free from trou

season of tho life is attempted to be
The period of childhood of Jesus
wns over thirty years during which
ho was obedient to hia humble par
ents. Teachers should remember that
they were once children themselves,
and should have sympathy with
children, and while there should be
sympathy in all their sports and
recreations, they should also be
taught cheerful obodionco. So long
as a child is incapable of supporting
itself, so long is it incapable of self
government. A child is like steam,
uncontrolled, except by the mind of
man, its possibilities great but with
out control useless. Conitrolled it
becomes the power which moves the
commerce of the world.
Children have a three-fold nature,
body, mind, and soul, their spirits
are necessary to their happiness.

AN INFAMOUS PICTURE.
Published ht Scranton Paper in Regard to
the Normal School.
Principal Bible and the Trustees of
the Normal school are highly indig
nant over the publication in a Scran
ton weekly illustrated paper or a cut
which is not calculated to impress
parents and possible students with
the standing of the school.
The obnoxious picture represents
a numbers of girls playing foot-ball
in costumes of a scanty nature and
in attitudes extremely unbecoming.
Underneath are a few words stating
that the picture represents an actual
occurrence among the young lady
students at the school.
It is an infamous piece of cheek for
the paper publishers to tamper with
the good mime of such an institution
as the school has got to be and! the
men who comprise tho firm should
be punished se vorly for so outrageous
It is understood that the matter has
been placed in the hands of the Hon.
J. B. Storm, who will demand some
retraction or a libel suit will be
brought. The school authorities
can rest assured, however, that no
one with any degree of common sense
would believe such a thing. The
school has made too rapid progess for
such a piece of work to harm it and
those in charge are beyond reproach.

AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. .
Rev. Mr. Nichols Preached on tho Subject,
'Overcoming," Last Sunday Morning.
Rev. Thos. Nichols, last Sunday
morning.preached an interesting and
instructive sermon in the Presby
terian church in this place, taking
for his text the words found in Rev.
It was a sermon applicable to any
congregation. The principal topic
was "Overcoming," and he spoke
especially of the promise made to all
that overcome, and the necessity
that exists among the members of
all congregations to overcome their
personal prejudices, opinions, likes
and dislikes, and to yield a cheerful
and Christian acquiescence to the
opinions and preferences of others.
By the way the population of Mil
ford Borough by the census of 1890
was about 800. It is safe to say that
less than 100 attend church in Mil

busy to go, or are they engaged in
better business? or have they no
