"You dear old counterpart of patience !
Would it scare you almost to death to

and looked pensive). "Would it cause

it came awfully near it). "I hope it
won't, but if it docs try and put your

sorrow trinkled down his cheek totbink

June 4, Superintendent O. B. Wharton
The first tnlng on tbe program was
botany, by Frank Kizer, who, by his en
thusiasm and knowledge of his subject ,
gave a very instructive talk. He said
the object in country schools was to
create interest, emulation and enthusi
asm, also to develop observation in the
pupils. He advised the use of natural
specimens when possible and pictures
made by tracing paper and copying pad
when not, each one tp have a specimen
in hand for close inspection. Teach
classification or plants by families using
their common family names. This was
followed by a general discussion nearly
all giving valuable bits of experience.
Joseph Hill next gave a talk on resil
ing, which was as usual, full of deep
practical thought. Tbe discussion was
on the feasibility oT reading outside of
the usual readers, some favoring news
papers or periodicals, others different
books. Finally the papers which are
published to be used as readers were
talked of and being new and cheap they
were thought desirable.
Frank Kizer made tho astonishing
statement, that in Germany school-books
for six or eight years' schooling only
cost . about $1.50; upon which.
Joseph Hill moved that a committee be
appointed to investigate the school-book
question in Germany.
Joseph Hill, Frank Kizer and W. W.
Sonnedecker were appointed. They
will start for Germany as soon as they
can be spared from labors here.
Tbe association adjourned for the
summer, tbe next meeting being tbe
first Saturday in September.
