PiTTsnuRO, Dec. 17.—We are having the heaviest snowfall iu five years. Wires are down all over the two ciilee. Three horses were killed sod several men badly iujured this morutng by contact with eieo-trie light wires.
The situation is so desperate that the Department of Public Safety bas ordered all electric street oar lines to stop running for the present. Trains from the west are OO time, bat those from the east are a!-rer.d7 delayed three and a half hours, aud tbs time of their srrivsl is iodefiuste.

All day long it bas oontioued.lo suow, On the railroads no freight trains whatever are running, and passenger trains that straggled through are late from one t j six hours. Bnsiness in the city ii slmost entirely suspended, an example being .the fact that no qnocations'were posted at the petroleum exchange daring the dav, owing to the lack of telegrap’jio communication.
The polioe patrol and fire alarm wires are badly crippled, and the switch board at the City Hall was burned out this morning.

The exeioleec were opened by the lostl lute sieging several eeleotions.
The opening address was made by Prof. Cuughlto OO **How to Uke Number One in the Prsctloe of TesohlDg.” Teachers deserve eoooursgement in their work. They shoold be U propottioo to their ability to do good work. This would create a spirit of eXpellenoe, and secure to the patrooe manyHimes the value received for this extra eX|enditut«. Next to the encouragement re$nIUag from faie oom-peneatioD, is tbst^hioh we feel on ootio-log tbst progrees Jo theory and prsotiee of teaching bu been reoogolesd and oom-mended.

Music and Suoehlne was sung, followed by Prof. Msloy who spoke on **The Hu-mau Body.” Hie.opeoiog remarks were made on the vals^ of any soionce io the school carrioaloB. He told bow by easy lesson to make the elemenu of zoology and biology familiar subjecu t>> pupils, and lead up to thstesebiog of physiology; and that in the complexity of the bomaa body lies its superictity ever all other bodies both tolmal and physical. He made many ntefol coggestloos raluable in teaching this imporUnt branch of study.
Prof. Eldon was to have oootioued his Ulk of yesterday on "The Relation of Ge* ology, Astronomy and Geography to Each Other.” Ile pleadsd yesterday for a more general knowledge of astronomy as It broad-ens the msgoanUilty, and further remarks OD this topic would have been appreciated. He gave instead a talk to the teachers upon their mistakes in grammar and pronunciation; giving examples of the most frequent uoes. He urged improvement in .his direction.
Adjournment was then made.

He contrasted the individual, be race, oommeroe, laws, language, bablU aud customs, not forgetting the good and evil which these two greatest nations of be world owe to each other. It was eu-iveoed with tlssbes of wit and bumoroua anecdotes.
The informal session of theteaohera was again done away with. Toe opening exercises consisted in the lostitute singing My Beautiful Home” and prayer by Rev. Qcrhard.
Prof. Coughlin now addressed tbs lo-atitute on the important topic of "Reading.” The faculty of the miod that is most aotively engaged lo lesrnlog to read B memory. Ae a matter of teaobiog a distiootioD ebould be made between read-ag aud learning to read. Learning to read is primafily a study of symbols. We proceed (rom tbs known to the unknown.

Miss Fee enlivened ut at this poiot by singing "The Song Til Ne’or Forget” in ber obarmiog manner, and responded to the applause wbiob followed by siogiog •'LisUn lo My Tale of Woe.”
Recess was given at this point. These recesses are mach enjoyed and are one of the pleasant features of the Institute.
Immediately citer reeese Prof. L. A. Beardsley took up the eubjec*. of "Verb Forms” and gave a olass drill upon it. He brought a number of young ladles and geoUomoD with him chosen from bis eloss st the Normal. He illustrated his method at length.
Prof. Dick made a few preliminary remarks that created a ripple of laugbUr and then launched forth on a Ulk about "A Few Fhings a Good Teacher Should Know.” Yuu must aeizo every avAllable opportunity to teaob moral eliarscter, manual training, drawing forms of nature and patriotism. You will be the better tasoher just ae you are familiar with related eobjeoU. You must know the pbil-
ralnd are cuUtVAted by eaoh study. Make your teeobiog concrete and look on the practical side. It is tboioughly esseollat to know child nature. You must know different temperaments.

Sopt. Brungsrd made a few sutemeoU and after eioglog adjourned until 1:30 p. rn.
lf those who annually oomplain of the look of gallantry and unsoeiability among tho eterner sex would make praetieal use of Prof. Dick’s iDStraetloos on becomings good queetiooer, they would Qed coils of fire besped opon their beads.
