Respectfully ANOTHER DAY Among the Instructors of the County SPECIAL MEETING Were Held Most of Yesterday Afternoon. COMPLETES WORK Before the Dr. Chalfant and Miss Patridge Talk. (Continued from yesterday. TUESDAY MORNING. Some Necessary Fundamental Concepts in Geography was discussed by. Prof. L, F. Chalfant. In the introduction to geography the first thing to be considered is the reason for giving time to the subject. The first thought that ought' to' be in' the mind, of the conscientious teacher is how shall the subject be taught so as to be, of use to the pupil? What claim has geography upon the pupil's mind? Should .be answered by the subject itself. Over an old Greek school house was written "know thyself" but geography says "know the world. First, consider the things upon, the .face of the earth in the order of plant and animal. Why is man. more than all? Because he is the thinking animal. In Ohio, green fields of corn stretch for miles. Why not in Wan-en county? Because it. is too hilly. Teach the boys and girls that land surface, time and energy determines the different industries in different sections of the country. Following Prof. Chalfant's talk, Miss Patridge resumed her discussion of "Plans of Nature Study. Books are extremely necessary, but the place for the book is in the hands of the teacher, except in the' advanced grammar grades. In order to teach nature study well, the teacher must have supplementary books. Lead the children to learn the significant things. In order to set the children to looking for what they ought to look for, the teacher must go to books. The teacher needs to know BO. much that they should go to books, especially the works -of the poets. At the conclusion of Miss tddge's talk the superintendent clared the institute' adjourned 1 :30 p. m. TUESDAY AFTERNOON. At 1 :30 Supt. Gunning called Fadetill the Hunters CASH DRY GOODS STORE.
