THE TEACHERS' COHVEimOlfl.
The convention ojionil at n to
'O'cloclt, the Vice-President ii the
chair. Tln assembly w.vj divided
ir.to two m utions and Mm lectures
duplicated. Sir. J. A. Moon,
to vhom had been assigned the duty
ol discussing arithmetic in the fifth,
your grade, opened with a promise
to develop the subjeot to a higher
point than was readied yesterday.
The great principle cnunehU'd as
necessary to inculcate iu class touch
ing is thu a traction is simply unex
ecuted division, a principle which
overy thoiough teacher of tractions
is pretty Hire to ignore. The fund
amental rocosses in common frac
tions were touched upon up to divi
sion, when time was called.
Pli-is Council brought in a eiaiiH
of seven, five bo.v and two girt, to
elucidate the piccees of "primary
iaM-wjolion. The lesson comprised
exercises in drawing, writing, num
erals, and geometrical elements,
puiticuhr attention being given to
the det elopment of cloudy enunci
Mis?,!. De;yo spent half an hour
in discussing the (5 1 ube method In
Arithmetic. To the uninitiated, a
definition may he useful .it this
point. Tha C-nihc method is d&
enhed as one b which addition,
Mibti action, multiplication and divi
sion are all taught at the same time,
the smaller nuiiibeis being taiignr
u'n succession, gtung ail the opiru-
frions iviihiii iho lango of each, and
H'l'-.V'-'o lti knowledge gained be
foie pioceeding lo the next nuinbcr.
The prnres-e-. described had parti
cular reference to the t nulling of
matue Jl.uv.iii.uib ami ollur nation
alities to whom the l'ngli-h ! mguago
is unknown letritoiy. The use of
the lingi.is iu object- lessons on inim
erils continues binve tiuio ttnmem
oiialtu be rec.'gni.id at! tlefidcdly
advantageous, one icavjn for which
n that the object-, tuo always on
hand and not, likely to be -upeiscil-
ed by the "latest iiiipiovemenli."

corded. Mr. Mitchell ol liana,
Wnui, naiil he bad tiled to get over
Iho dilllcttlly by adding names of
jv.irouty to icimos ol children and
lmd found it necessary to go outside
to , ascertain the paieiitage of his
pupil-., but. he found bo many di
verse opinions on the subject of en
quiry that he j'ave it up. .Mr. John
Uuiea threw light on the matter by
explaining the Hawaiian custom of
dcHignallug as 'father," not only
the real immediate aneobtor but uho
i ho grandfather, uncle, comum, and
friend. Thin, he aoid, would .10
