The attendance was quite Largo for tin first Day sixty eight out of Trio mighty our teachers of the county being enrolled. Tin opening prayer was offered by Rev. Harry Curtin Harman. Tho teachers were a to the county seat by Ralph Kisner,esq., in a Brief but very felicitous address. Two excellent talks were Given monday afternoon. Professor Albert of the Bloomsburg Normal school occupy cd the first period on a fundamental principles in teaching. A he dwelt upon the importance of general information which can Only to act Jaired by a wide Range of Reading. With him it was a question whether teachers Are doing their whole duty in this respect and lie said lie would like to have a glimpse at the private libraries of Many cd them just to see How Many Hooks have been add a during they a. To dwelt very entertainingly on the development of the child a mind under Tho various and often conflicting influences exerted upon it first by Tho Mother then Tho father by playmates by relatives by Tho Street and lastly by the school. To enlarged upon the subject of a a methods and a a device marking Tho distinction Between the two which Are often erroneously used interchangeably. A a Devir a he defined As something used to a tiling Lite or make a method Clear. Professor Albert does not believe in Tho absolute uniformity of method. What a person of phlegmatic temperament can us to advantage May prove unsuited to a person of nervous temperament. Even the much abused old a by method lie thought might i tolerated where the teacher had demonstrated her ability to get admirable results by that Way of teaching. Professor Deatrick prefaced his talk with a few general remarks during which he stated that in his visits to county institutes this year lie is gratified to find a More professional spirit than what was probably common teachers seem inclined to grasp at Little in Tho line of pure amusement or entertainment but Micro was much solid work done. Professor Derrick took As his subject a the thinking by this lie refers to Tho instruments of a child a mind brain nervous system oct. In this he took car to draw the distinction. Mind is not brain although the two Are strangely linked together. Under this head he alluded to the misconceptions of ancient Tiiu a when the scat of the mind and soul was thought to a be in the heart stomach or in other parts of the body. To insisted that teachers by thoroughly familiar with this a a workshop of the i child a mind As whatever enters into the mind must pass through it. It is just As reasonable for an electrician a try to secure Good results without a know Lodge of tin Power House As for a teacher to it to successful work without a Knowle a a go of a child s brain and nervous system. The music which is under the direction of professor Cogswell is a very enjoyable feature of the Institute the entire Institute joining in the singing. Miss Elfriedo Weiss officiated at the piano. Tuesdays session. Tho second Day of the county Institute brought our a Large attendance. All the teachers of the county wore present with the exception of three while Many citizens patrons of the schools and others interested in educational matters dropped in during the Day to witness the proceedings. place was filled by sup Eric Temlett Coughlin of Wilk Sbarro who occupied tin last period of the Forenoon with a practical talk on the subject of a a arithmetic dwelling especially on language in its relation to arithmetic preparation for advanced work Concrete methods amp a. Citing an instance in Hank discount he showed that the language it it in played in problems May by beyond the comprehension of the Pupil even though he be familiar with the principles and Tho methods involved. Such problems turning up in reviews and a a a angina tons Are Apt to prove a great stumbling Block to pupils and to keep Down their averages Bolow what they Are expected to attain. He urged teachers to give More attention to laugh age to be sure that pupils understand All tin terms and to keep tin mind of the child Active on the thought Side superintendent Coughlin advocates Loucrete methods for beginners Aud ridiculed the old fashioned Drill in the multiplication and other table it As a sheer waste of time and contributing not at All to the development of the child a mind. Thus instead of giving a child abstract numbers As �?o4 plus 2 Are which lie is Apt to recite mechanically he should he Gicu something in the Concrete form As a four apples plus two apples Are six in the afternoon or. Coughlin took the place of prof. Albert continuing the subject of arithmetic. Prof. Deatrick a highly instructive talks on the brain and brain development has had the effect of directing the thought of Tho teachers in a comparatively new Channel. His talk monday afternoon on a brain Job printing the Otic of the american Bein finished with a Large assortment o Job letter and fancy Type and to material generally the publisher announces to the Public that he is prepared at All times to execute n. The neatest manner $ Job printing Ofahl kinds and description i5f�?oget our a prices before Yon place your orders. Cultivation was especially edifying Aud from Trio interest displayed by the Institute it is evident that Trio teachers realize that in order to do fall just Ico the the pupils a n trusted to their training it will lie necessary for them to direct their studies into the special Domain of science opened up by professor Deatrick or in other words to More thoroughly familiarize themselves with a the thinking shop of the boy or girl. Wednesdays session. Professor w. W. Deatrick of the knt town Normal school bid Adieu to Tho county Institute yesterday morning with a Fine discourse on a the a treat thing in education. A superintendent Coughlin continued his talk on a arithmetic while professor Cogswell who Lias charge of the music of the Institute gave another excellent talk. County superintendent Derr did a very Wise thing in providing for instruction in music now that it Lias been added to the course of study in our town schools. It is worthy of note that the subject Coull not Llave been placed in the hands of a better person than professor Cogswell who is unquestionably master of his Art. The teachers show their interest by giving the closest attention to every detail presented by the professor up Only during the singing but also the talks on music.
