The Citizens mw Co.
Hold Annual Institute m Perrysburg High
Intelligent Educators Listen to Interesting Lectures and
Participate in Discussions Unusually Large
Attendance of Teachers.
Promptly lit Ion o'clock, Monday
a. in. Pros. Korshuer called tho teach
ers to order for tho opening session of
All the officers and eighty teacher
were present to join in the opening
Bong-America after which Hev. Diunm
read I Cor. 12 and offered prayer.
Supt. ,. D. Simkinsof St. Marys was
trod need and
wo as his first ad-
PROP. J. D. S1MK1NS,
dress "Your Ether Patch." This was n
stirring talk and a strong appeal for
sunshiny teachers. The speaker said
that every teacher had, at least, a lot
sis inches by six inches which ex
tended down to the earth's center and
up through the air into tho infinite
ether space; so far up that sunlight
can always shine in. Teachers need
to scatter sunshine among their pupils.
Often the teachers whose memories
are most cherished are those whoso
lives were filled with smiles and sun
shine. Prof. Tloark of Lexington. Kentucky,
was introduced to the teachers by the
president after a sunshine song by
tho institute, lie assured the teachers
that although from Kentuckey ho
had left behind him his cannon and
his Winchester, and that his hip pock,
et contained nothing round and noth
ing flat, lie hoped that he had a
message for the teachers of Wood Co.
such that it would pay them to lis
ten to him during the week. Ho said
tint ho would say some things which
they might not like but if it provoked
discussion and thought his message
would not bo in vain.
The afternoon session was opened
by songs led by the musical director.
Prof. Roark gave two of his addresses
on psycology and proved himself
a master instructor clear, concise
and interesting. "Education Defined
us Process and as Product" was his
first theme. Ho defined education as
that process which tends to lit the in
dividual for the highest happiness
both here and hereafter. It touches
the individual physically, mentally,
and morally. If heis physically sound,
mentally sound and morally sound,
ho will be happy and not to ho so is a
sin. sickness is a mii oeing mo ro-
sult of tho transgression of physical
law. But oven if sick don't whiuo and
and don't glory in your ills. It is tho
teacher's business to look after tho
physical cut also to look after tho
moral. Tho public schools have been
negligent in regard to tho latter; thoy
hayo not done what thoy should to
stem tho rising tide of criino; thoy
should do moro to educato and train
morally than in any other way.
THE DEATH PENALTY.
A little tlilug Bomotlmos results in
tleatli. Thus a moro scratch, Insigni
ficant cuts or iumy bolls liavo paid tho
death penalty. It Is wise to havo
Bucltlln's Arnica Salvo over handy. It's
tho best Salvo on oarth and will pro
vont fatality, when Burns, Sores, Ul
cors and Piles threaten. Only 25s at
Bowers & Comstock's drug store,
Facts, ideas and words is tho proper
order for tho gaining of knowledge.
This order is often reversed, but sin
ftilli'. Words arc the currency of
thought but tacts and iucvs must
precede. Power for mental opuiatious
is gained by the-process ofdovelopo
ment. Power is not skill. Skill is the
result of training and is th ability to
do a thing easily and do it well. This
is well illustrated by tho labor of the
fire-nan of a locomotive engine' and
that of Hi" engineer. Skill is always I
in d-tinn I an 1 always well p.ii 1. To j
instruct, to develops, to train is j
I what constitutes education. '
Supt Sinikins took for his theme the
ti-o'iblcoine "Verbals and Pniticiples" '
Bj sentences he illustrated the double
use (if some words and showed that
it is ,fio-i impossible to tell what use
of i word the writer had in mind and
hence nh.it part of speech. The teach
es took part in this- discussion and
the perplexing featuies neie not as

i The attendance at the institute, the
j ability of the instructors, the inteiest
of the ollicers, the comfortable audi
torium and the delightful situation of
the town on the Maumee all indicate '
a successful and profitable institute. J
A committee of Perrysburg teach-1
ers have arramred for some snecial
music during the institute; a duet
by Misses Amelia Pfister and Lottie
Fink was nicely executed during the
Tuesday's sessions of the institute
grew in interest through the day. Af
ter singing, "Speak Gently" Dr.
Koark read I Cor. VIU, the chapter of
Christian Liberty and invoked Gods
blessing upon the labors of the day.
W. V. Wales, secretary of O. T. R.
C. gave his repoit for the year, lie
reported that ho had issued fewer cer
tificates than in some years past but
he had issued no certificates until he
was satisfied that the lequired read
ing had been done and not merely
tho 2oc paid. Ho was promptly and
Supt. Sinikins began his work by a
talk upon the lakes of North America.
He recommended that every teacher
read some good book on lakes, rivers,
volcanoes and become thoroughly ac
quainted with what ho must teach.
Lake basins are made by river, by
glaciers, by winds, by volcanoes, by
chemical action and by animals. Mr.
Sinikins continued this theme in the
afternoon iu a trip across tho U. S.,
beginning with tho Atlantic Coast
Plain, the teachers traversed with him
plateaus, lowlands and mountains un
til tho Pacific was reached. They
stopped to consider how tho moun
tains towered and how thoy were torn
down, why granite peaks bared their
heads to tho sun while sandstones and
limestones, rocks hul themselves in
fragments beneath the waters. Mr.
Sinikins' talk upon tho "Powers of
President" provoked much discussion.
Ho said that every president since
Washington has added to tho powers
of tho government.
Dr. lloark began his work by a dis-
Tho startling announcement that a

cussion of 'Attention." Attention is
that condition of (lie mind in which it
is centered upon one thing to the ev j
elusion of other things; it is a con li
tion of the mind. Voluntary, in 1 '
untary and expectant are the three
kinds of attention. Voluntaiy niton (
tion coiner by an act of the will, iiio!
untary without such tin act. Atti-n i
tion must bo had before one can t ach
and interest is necessary for at )l i m
Interest is the teacher's Philosophers
stone and is often secured and inoiv
often sustained by object. Iu epe -t
ant attention tin1 mind is focused up
on something which is expeete I to
happen. The 'eacliei must k"-p tin
child's mini in a state of expo.-: iuc ;
let him see the bright side, the njlit
side and the pine side.
Habit was his next theme. Ilao
are three classes organic, rate aid
individual. The organs of the bod
perform their functions through hv d
habits, nor could they perform ll.etn
if they had not tho habits. Plums
have habits; some giow iu net s.n',
some in dry, some upon htntt-u
ground. Animals havo their own
peculiar habits. Individual habits
are physical, intellectual and moral.
M uscular habits are the basis of skill
and are necessary for life. If muscles
did not work automatically it would
mean bankruptcy to consciousness.
Cleanliness, walking, eating are hab
its which teachers ought to give at
tention to forming in their pupils.
Accuracy is a habit of mind that
needs much attention. We use feon
stantly exaggerated language Ac
curacy and rapidity are tho most im
portant intellectual habits. Truthful
ness is the prime moral habit. What
changes it would work were it a uni
versal habit! Time to form habits is
when the child's mind is plastic.
The subject of Consciousness was
the last topic for tho day and it
proved to be the most interesting one.
Dr R. said that he did not know
what it was but knew that it touches
human life and life that is not hu
man. All organs of tho mind seem
to bo developed from consciousness
as if it were the protoplasm of mind.
Is consciousness in anything below
man? Certainly a dog has memory
and dreams but can he reason? Tho
hereditary habi1. instinct does not ac
count for many of his actions
but only the power by
which ouo can adapt himself to things
that are new in his experienco and in
that of the laco and that power is
reason. Wherever there is selectivity
tho power to make a choice there
is consciousness. By illustrations it
was shown tint his power extended
down through animal life and plant
life to inanimate objects. .Mind is a
foim of energy and since no energy is
over lost it follows logically that mind
wherever found is immortal. Teach
ers must reverence, respect life in
Tho music under tho leadership of
tho director is improving. The teach
ers sing well and it adds much to tho
pleasure of the institute. Two piano

Ho was driving his horse and

he was struck by the fast train.
It appears that he did not hear tho

was on the track before ho realized

instantly and tho buggy and its oc
cupant was carried about three rods
before tho train could bo stopped.
He was taken on board tho train

DYSENTERY CURED WITHOUT
THE AID OF A DOCTOR.
"I am Just up from a hard spell of
tho llux" (dysentery) says Mr. T. A.
Pinner, a well known merchant of
Drummond, Tonn. "I used one small
bottlo of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy and was cured
wltitout having a doctor. I consider
It the best cholera medicine in tho
world." Theio is no nood of employ
ing a doctor when this remedy is used,
for no doctor can prescrlbo a bettor
medicine for bowel complaint ln any
form either for children or adults. It

Itay Jamison residing near Center
church, came near being hilled with
two companions along the Maumee
river near tho Club house, Sunday,
says tho Tribune.
Jamison with two young ladles were
out lor a ride and were a short dis
tance north of tho Club house grounds
along I lie Maumee river road when
four men in an automobile dashed up
Jamison's horse took fright and
went over the high bluff on the river
side. Horse, rig and occupants went
rolling over and over down the steep
bank until about a third of the way
down they struck a barbed wire fence
Jamison was quite badly hurt, it
being necessary to take eight stitches
to close up a wound in his head. Tho
young ladles were not so badly hurt.
The rig was badly broken and tho
horse cut in several places. Had It
not been for tho fence tho rig trio
would probably have been killed as
from the point where the fence stop
ped their fall the bank Is almost
straight down forty or fifty feet.
The automobillsts were from Toledo
and rendered what assistance they
could to the unfortunate pleasure seek
