homes much pleased with the work of
the week and Incidental pleasures of
the stay In the Electric City.
Miss Buckbeo gave ns her farewell
talk a dissertation on "Children's Mo
tives,," which like all her previous
talks, was plain, practical and Inter
esting and Instructive. She deplored
the fact that so manj' children leave
school before they have fairly begun
to study and blamed It all to the lax
ity of the parents.
Dr. Benedict gave an Interesting nnd
voluuble address on "Lessons In Ob

and seconding the action of the county
superintendent in reconsidering the de

the haste In such action, the smallness
of the number voting, nnd subsequent

Influence they exert In moulding the

complimented the city on the new High
school and expressed the hope that the
pupils would only be constantly awake

Superintendent Taylor In his closing
address commended the teachers who
had given careful attention to the lec
tures, and asked those who had been
careless to do better In the future. "A
teacher," he said, "who Is not suffic
iently self-controlled to listen atten
tively to a good, short lecture Is not
competent to control a school of chil

In making the Institute n success and
