The Greeks danced poetically and not
like kangaroos, as we danco In America
today," dealared Professor Troop, of
Toronto, in a lecture beforo the high
school section on "The Study of Poetry."
In determining tho dlffercnco between
poetry and prose, ho said that thoro was
a. mechanical difference nnd that real
poetry was something that could not bo
expressed In prose form. Tho poem
should bo read In school, he said, but,
like love, it should not bo analyzed. Ho

the dlffercnco between poetry and prose,

words together to get good sense; poetry

Another subject discussed in tho high
school section was "Tests In Efficiency,"
by S. E. Downs, superintendent of tho
Lower Merlon schools, who said that
the only thing to do with an Inefficient
teacher, when sho proved Incompetent,
was to recommend her dismissal.

"You may think I am a strong follower

llko this should come into our history.
If history Is only to bo a record of wars
It should bo thrown out of tho schools.
Tho social and Industrial sides aro most
Important. All that Is necessary In tho
rural school Is tJnlted States history with
a European background. Nature study
Is not to bo seriously considered.
"The day Is coming when the teacher
must be a craftsman. Common knowl
edge should be the fundamentals, and
local conditions should govern the ac

should be taught arithmetic; not tho kind
which makes bookkeepers, but the kind

poultry dealers predict that the supply of

scarce so far this year becauso there has
not been sufficient cold weather to cause
the fowl to cease their countryside ram
bles and stay nt home to fatten up In an
ticipation of Thanksgiving Day.
Meat prices remain steady. Pork chons
have dropped slightly and hams are sell

continues plentiful and of a god quality
with prices about usual for this time of
One of the moit unusual features of
the market today Is the fact that stewing

roasting chickens. This is attributed to
the tendency among farmers to hold their
older chickens for laying. In anticipation
of seeing eggs rise to a high price.
Dealers, however, believe that present
prices for eggs will continue.
Butter Is selling at the average price
of 45 cents a pound. This Is not un

and other Important concessions that
year, and In 1902 the bitter light between
them nnd the operators was ended

AMERICAN COPPER CARGOES
SEIZED OFF GIBRALTAR
British Charge Possible Reeonslgn
ment to Krupps
WASHING-TON, Oct 29. The seizure at
Gibraltar by British authorities of two
Italian vessels, the Sftn Giovanni and the
Itcglna d'ltnlla, carrying cargoes of
American copper, was reported to the
State Department today.
The report of the seizure was received
from four copper companies In New
York, shippers of the enrgoes held. They
requested the State Department to make
protest to Great Britain against confisca
tion of tho cargoes.
Tho State Department today cabled the
American Consul at Gibraltar for an ex
planation of tho detention of the vessels.
In this connection a report was also
awaited from the Consul regarding the
selzuro of the Bed Star liner Kroonlaml
there yostorday. It is probable that repre
sentations will bo made to Great Britain
Just as soon ns the department obtains
full details of the seizures.
The Snn Giovanni and tho Begins
d'ltnlla sailed from New York and were
on their way to Italian ports. Although
Great Britain has furnished no leason for
the detention of thesp ships at Olbrnttnr.
It Is assumed nt tho State Departmnt that
tho Gibraltar authorities suspected that
tho copper, after It had reached Italian
ports, would be reconslgned to the Krupps
In Germany and Austria.

NOmJlSTOWN. Oct. 29. Tho question
of pesregatlnff Nesro children In public
schools was brought up today at the Cist
session of the School Directors' Associa

tor asked whether Negro children could
bo separately taught.
Tho question was answered by James
M. Coughlln, superintendent of the
Wllkes-Bnrre schools and a member of
the State Board of Education. Ho said
thero was nothing In tho school code to
prevent the building of a school for tho
instruction of Negro children or their
being tnught separately, providing they
were given the same surroundings and
tho Identical teaching as tho white ohll
drcn. A discussion on "Is the Trend of Public
School Work, Looking to the Future, Cor
rect?" was opened by the Itev. George
Lutz, Pcnnsburg. J. Vincent Poley, of
Hoycrsford, objected to the introduction
of fads in the school. He Bald there were
no royal roads to learning and no short
cuts to knowledge. When a director from
Hatboro asked how to run a school which
required JI1.000 on $8000. William Byrnes,
of Lower Merlon, replied that the only
way to do that was to Increase the tax
rate. "Too many directors are afraid to
do this for fear of defeat," sold Mr.
Byrnes. "This you need not be afraid of
