Aftsr a sliort recc.s.s for the of the teichors ge^lting acquainted Mr. .J. W. l^w of Cardston gave a most interesting talk on Local History-a subject not provided fof in the curriculum but one of primary im portanoG. He |>ointed out the nead for it on account of its interest, its importance and the fact that no history of current evewts is compulsory in the schools. As instances of topics dealing with local history he cited, the history of the R.N.W.M.P. force, the Hudson's Bay Co,, the Indian triljes in our locality, and old-time bufTalo-huntH, all of these make moat interesting lessons. He favored the teaching of civics and advocated lessons on the local court of justice, elections, laws governing campaigns', bylaws, and municipal affairs generally, in order to foster a spirit of true citizenship. It children were taught in school to take active intcpest in public affairs the speaker thought we should not have the humiliating c.x-pcrience of having eighty-two voles cast, out of a possible seven hundred, as was recently the case in vot- jcct of a pai�r by Kev. ,T. M. Man-thorne of Coleman, and in a masterly woy ho showed tlint a knowledge of literature is a mighty instrument in the hands of a teacher.

The old Territoriol TVjuchcrs' Association hud br>en di.s*ban�led, ajid in 1907 the presiding examiners at .Edmonton formed an a.ssociatipn called the I'ro vincial Association. Some indignation prevailed in Calgary over this move and another was formed ther� cjiIIl'*! the Calgary Provincial A.ssocia tion. After some discu.ssion, in which .several mcmlters defended the action of the examiners, the^ motion Was carried' that, we endorse the action of the Association formesie or both of tbc present associations.

SAGE The Pieture Frai Only Few weeks left Christmas in which to get thoMT helpful and forceful address on "Thoj M'ss McNabb, Coleman, T. B. Hoidgo Teacher as a Moral Force" aad j Cowley, W. M. Christie, Pincher brought out these points-that the teacher should raise the standard of life in his conununity, that he should train the moral life of the children and should foster a spirit of patriotism. In s|>eaking of the teacher as a nation builder, Mr. Bryan emphasized tho value of hi.story in developing mora) notions in children, and deplor cd tho fact that Canadian history is too frequently divorced from English history. He pointed out that the ing on a bylaw in Lethbridge. Mr. situdy of geography holiwd a chid I i Low spoke of the Ijonefit to l>e de-rivwi by a locality, from the study of Local History by enthusiosts who wishal to preserve the old traditions and said that he . consi acquit his oljligations to his coiinti v.

These essays were exhibi'ted at the fair ond were quite creditable. Miss II. Ketcheson of Claresholm, gave a paper'on supplementary reading which abounded in vaiudble sug-gcistions for supplementary peadc/".s to suit every grade, and every taste. She strongly advocated the choice of ennol^Iing books to inijilant in the child's mind a longing for the true and tho beautifiil, and pointed out that as tho readers now in use in our schools are deficient in intorest, that it is the duty of every tei^chor to obtain books ouisido of theso readers. Several teachers spoko on the subject showing that it is one of live interest, and many helpful ideas as to the best wa.vs for using supplementary reading were brought ou^ At the beginning of the afternoon session, liobb delighted the Con vention by giving some Kindergarten Gomes, and a lesson in construction work, having with her a small class from the Kindergarten, who vent through tho play with much dignity and a consciousness of their own importance. Those of the delegates whose minds had reverted to their own childhood days while watching the children's games wore brought back with a start to haixl facts by a pafier on Commercial Arithmetic by Jos. Morgan, B..'V. The pa]ler was very practical and clear and full of good .si'gge.stion.s. Mr. Morgan spo'-e of the necowsit.v for ftccuriicy and rapidity in the four wimple rules and nl-vocated short problems, poiniin^; out that a s'lort probloni taking only a minute for its solution is just as valuable in illustrating a principle as one taking (liteen miniiU's. He also s|joko of practical ways of teaching stocks, pi'r-�'.ntiigj'8 and di.scount, anil laid grout stros* on the noeossity for original work from each pupil with no helps from his school mates. He onci)uragy'(l problems that had no "answer at the bacli of tho book.'4 One ilevice of his in holdping a. backward pupil consi.sts in sending the pupil to Ihf blackboard. This ofit?n cnab lo.s a boy toget a problem right when he could not pot it at his �oat and in our schools, emulating our tici^li-bor.s across the border.

Some discussion was caused by Miss- Stout's statement that sho gets Part II children to diction-opes intelligently, but she succeeded in proving thai it can bo done with good results. Mr. .X. .S. Pentland, of Medicine Hat gave a very iifteresting and enlightening addross dealing with the teaching of weights and measures. He spoke of the origin of the units of weight. He maintained that these points should be dealt with aiid that the rigidity of mathcliintics .should bo relieved as far as possilile. .\n interesting discussiim occupied tho time until the adjournment. The last session of the convention was oiienoti hy a paper in primary reading gi\on by Miss Burnett of tho Normal School of t^ulgary. She spoko of tile disadvantages that ma. ny children labor under coining from homes whore then; is no reading matter and that the school provids^ u love for rending. Children arc fonri of .stories and this is an inwMvtivo towards reafling. She spoko of several methods of teaching rending to liegin nors and explained, by means of tho blackboard her own method, whicli is tt combination of the word and phonic methods.
