In this organisation you represent a 1 nip poem. The county and Lorna blk Institute a Well a the body of Ike teachers of the state. The it a title Are becoming important and Strong supports of our school system they develop a rat Raity and promote professional Pride and excellence. Improvement and advancement must result trom the do Nasion comparison and criticism of the teacher of their different modes of government and of imparting knowledge. This influence goes beyond the teacher and Reabe the patrons of the Sobola. In this so ate All the people Are the Patron of our common free it Bola. And the canse of education is strengthened when they it come interested in the questions which relate to their management and qualify their Success. No i think i May say that the tendency and influence of the Teav Hera Institute of which this is the head is to make your profession stronger More dignified honoured and efficient and Alvo to promote and Advance the cause of popular education much More cheerfully Aud gratefully will the people give their children into your charge and management when they know that you pos Meas the kill and Ait of governing them of a to enforce obedience without imparting the natural Foroe and vivacity of spirit and character and when they know also that Yoti will carefully and intelligently consider the Pbyk ical mental and moral qualities and Pecullar Iii i of each la your entire treatment. And i understand that it 1� the tendency of the Institute a to establish and make More distinct and positive the duty of the teacher to carry the mind of the student Back of rules and results to reasons causes and principles. When these Are entirely understood the Ersulia Are Eaily and accurately traced and the rules deduced. The Uleta a particular Case May he forgotten but the principle upon a bin it rests can not be for Gotton and if that be understood the party is mater of the subject. Of what value it it to know a mathematical proposition a a result or by an Effort of the memory in such Case the truth is not known tall. I once knew a student who memorised More than one half of Davis Legendre. In was a you appreciate an amass no Effort of memory but the unfortunate and miserable party bad never looked within the regions of mathematical truth. His terrible labor waa Worth no More than the living of a Kite. Being thoroughly taught tir Back in the elements and principles of science the student hold the teats of truth in Hia own hands. He becomes a trained thinker and a Likely to arrive at just and proper conclusion even when us subjects Are presented. 1 think the important work of the teacher in the Colli ten of Correct habits of thou Gill. When the schools Are left behind immense Fields of unexplored knowledge lie before. Into these Ycu can not accompany him. But relying opon i training be a inters with Confidence and assigns to fact us they present them delve their logical relations. The grecian athlete a trained that Bis loot should be firm Hia Eye steady and his muscle Strong but bus instructor did not run the race with him nor Ludt Cate the step be should take your work Law it 11 done when you Lead your scholar Torfli to enter the contests of Lile with habits of Dill gent and profound in sch ligation and reflection. In this respect the state Normal school la a Model a Well a an authority. I have been Able to visit that institution but upon one occasion. I observed at once that no subject a paused Niros the reasons and principles upon which it rested were correctly . I am confident it will prove great help to our school system and War tbs the favor of the people. Next in importance to the formation of Correct habitat of thought is the cultivation of Good Law it the appreciation of that which in Noblea id Beautiful. I am not sure but that throughout life we Are a much influenced through our sensibilities and a motion a through Ibe sterner Falt uries of reason Sod judgment the capability of reaching these Quali Lei i or great practical value to every one. May i not then aay that it i of very great importance and material to the highest Sucre of the schools that Correct sentiments and Good taste be cultured and developed. The institutes and other professional association among the teachers will contribute to that desirable and essential result. The interest Aud Pride a bib Ycu exhibit in your Profe Aaion Are reasonable and commendable. Your Profet Ion in excelled by none other in respect to Ita usefulness.

But Hev tid that you now command the influence Aud Honor of Yaeo Caiiou. You form a part of the Indiana common of school a Ynte in which will became a efficient a and in the world. The pupils now enrolled in the free schools of the at a the number 4hu 044, and the teacher employ d during the Iasi year were 12.655.

To the people to generous and free in the cause of education you owe it to strike a mow at waste and extravagance whenever they May coma under your observation. Economy to essential to the permanent favor of the system with the people. In this connection it 1 proper for to to refer to the death of the Hon. Milton b.

Lie waa your Earnest and i due Friend. By Bia Devotion he contributed i to the dignity of your profession.

I May not Errie take any comparison Between the influence which they exert and that of a like number engaged in an it other profession or employment. Snob a comparison can not he made. They influence All other pursuits. They Are Felt throughout the entire Frame work of society.

I am glad to believe that our common school Are free from the touch and influence of party and of sect. And i am confident that you and those whom you represent will see to it that there shall be no departure from that policy. The school belong to All the people. Persona of All Shade of politics and of All systems of religious Faith alike contribute to their an port. It would not be right that any Claro Aben id seek to i Prem its theories of government or Tenet of religion upon the minds of the children in the common school and thus to control the politics or the religion of a coming generation. The training should seek to Kelab Liah proper habits of thought and the right use of All the mental faculties hot not to no up the place of judgment upon Ucb question. Public policy will not allow your prerogative to go to far. Otherwise the usefulness of the system would be impaired and Ita Perni Nenee endangered. 1 Hope that this your annual meeting will tie attended by great enjoyment to yourselves and Benefit to the Cau a of education. The addkkn8k8 and general business. The Kuk risks of the r Day fakers by the a a prof Quot a other matter too m my Kuus to mention. The association assembled wednesday morning As per adjournment. After 15 minutes of devotional exercise a. Prof. G. W. Hot a introduced and read a paper on a a the educational Power of the teacher s after a few preliminary remark he said in a Betance a follow character is what we Are and reputation is what people think we Are. Considered negatively words Are not character. Gentines and parity May be in the words when severity sensibility or Malignity a in the heart. Neither Are Good impulses character Peter under a Noble impulse declared himself ready to die with Bia master yet in a few Bourn denies him again. Surrounding Are not character. Many determine a Man character by Bia nationality by the office to Bolds or the title he bears. There though outward sign leave in a degree untouched that inner and flier Asence called character. Scholarship la not character n a word character i the Man. There Are three distinct processes in the work of education. 1, informing 2, training 3, developing. The first Furuie bes fact and principles for guidance. The second applying the product of the first gives skill. The third develops Power. Thus giving character. The first a tributary to the second and both to the third. The third a the crowning go iry of the other two. The Laws under which character educated Are. 1st. Like begets like. This Law hold in physical nature hence by analogy should in mental and moral. Teachers As aurely As lace an it wars face in the Mirror or form produce form on Ibe face Olibe camera to surely la your character reproducing itself in your pupils. Your courage is producing courage your patience patience your Candor Candor your veracity veracity your Magnani mity magnanimity and also if the Contra Rita of there Are found they Are producing their ilk. A second Law i we grow like Walt a we contemplate. It fas Well known Law that natural scenery modifies character. Meu look and Are modified by what they see. The Pupil behold with admiration the Noble traits in Bia teacher s character. And thus beholding he is changed into the aame. A a Bird Law a that a teacher s character become Walters or Model a Arque Noe follows in conclusion. The need of closer personal Intercourse Between teacher Aud Pupil. History and experience sustain this. Our present system of w wholesaling in education giving from forty to sixty Puglia to a teacher thereby necessitating Large flames and Baste a not favourable to such development. Character development requires the teacher to Aid the Pupil in forming ideals. The Ideal modifies and shape the real. The real a what he lives the Ideal a what be Hopes and seeks. The teachers can and should do something to impress this Ideal in the minds of Bis Pupil a. Tyls should be done by a judicious revelation of Hia own character by i oct instruction. Portraying so nearly a May be by words the Subtle essence of character and the subtler essence of Hia Ldes a.
