Supt. Slmkins conducted 'the morning
Imagination nnd Character was Dr.
Uoark's first theme. Imagination is the
power we have of making for ourselves
pictures of things that do not on 1st,
or existing, that we have never seen;
memory is the poWer which enables us
to recall wha'chas beenln the mind. Im
agination Is creative but uses elements
already familiar, combining them 'Jnto
new Tonus. Not alone should poets
have imagination, but also common la
borers. The ditch digger will make
the best ditch who can see the Ideal
di'tcli; the brick mason who can see
the completed wall will soon become a
master mason. All classes of profes
sional nion linist use 'Imagination if
they are successful but the teacher
nt'eds It In a divine degree and should
cultivate It by legend, myths and
fairy stories In their pupils.
The most Important end of imagina
tion is its moral value. "We become
like our Ideal characters, and our ideals
The Doctor's next topic was Curios
ity, which, he said, was the divine
hunger for knowledge, 0110 of the
mainsprings of man's advance. You
cannot keep children from learning If
the facts are presented In the right
way. Love, fear and ambi'cion were
mentioned ns motives. Punishment
the only appeal to which some children
are susceptible. If ambition is strong
enough you can get anything In tlio
world you wnut. Giving prizes is not
a good practice because attention is
focused upon something o'thcr than
for which lie should bo working. Ap
peal to the highest motive to which
the pupil will respond.
Dr. Roarlc began his afternoon talk
by urging teachers to-grow by rending
the books of the O. T. It. C. He
showed that teachers haviTTnore time
for study and improvement than mem
bers of other professions. They owe
It to themselves and the profession to
be readra-s of some good educational
magazines and papers. He then gave
a Mimniary of his work on psychology.
The senses get knowledge, memory
holds it and brings It back, Imagina
tion works It up into new concepts.
.Tudgm'entls one of the olabora'tive fa
culties. By It wo. draw comparisons.
Judgment 'Is used "n everything ami
should be cultivated In pupils. Con
science does not tell what Is right
judgment does that. Conscience says
do the right, or do not do wrong; like
all feelings It gives either pleasure or
pain. The machinery of moral action
is judgment to know the right; feel
ing that furnish motives, and will to
carrj" out tho decisions and motives.
Supt. Siinklns in his lirst talk ex
plained "How we hear." The outer
oar Is of no particular use. The struc
ture ot the organs of hearing aro
adapted In the host possible way lo
their use. A flue description was giv
en of tlio ear.
One of the most instructive talks Mr.
Slmkins gave the institute was upon
-"Dandelions." By drawings and speci
mens he slioived how the structure was
adapted for the transportation of the
seed, for Its planting and for its pro
tection. IIo stnted that lie had follow
ed tho root of a dandelion more than
54 ilnclies down in the- ground. By
computation it was shown that an or
der for n. dandelion plant lucluded
100,000,000 cells for the" heads alone.
The last half hour of the day was a
brief discussion of Mini, -under tho
topics, inn tier, mountain, mud, man,
and mind. He 'Miirihaslzed the fact of

An Interesting change In the special
music was a mandolin solo by A'llono
Trndeau. This was executed nicely
an 1 was heartily cheered.
Friday morning tho Institute- work
was begun by singing. The morning
devo'tlonal exercises were conducted
by Mr. Brlsbln, after which Supt. Slm
kins talked about Vowels. He gave
sentences which contained the various
ues of the- vowels. The teachers
showed considerable skill In giving tho
various sounds and marks. Ills next
talk was an Instructive one upon Lati
tude and Longitude. Pupils lmist have
a correct mental picture of the earth
before they can understand latitude
and longi'tude. There in.ut be a start
ing point for measuring and locating.
By Illustrations on the blackboard lie
showed one way of finding the latitude
and longitude of familiar but small
places. Supt. Slmkins' afternoon talk
was a klutUof farewell. He said thai
he had the best time ho ever had In
an Institute. With such an Invitation
as has been given he believed that ii
would be unanimous to hold the Insti
tute In Perrysburg next year if they
fe.lt that Ir was Jiot asking too much
of Perrysburg teachers and citizens.
Ci'i'tainly It had taken work to care for
the Institute iu the way it lias been
done this week. For young teachers
there are many years of drudgery, but
In drudgery there may be enjoyment.

Prof, v Itoark's closing work on
psychology was as Instructive and en
tertaining as any that lie had given.
He said the questions of psychology
are easy for there are three conditions
consciousness, attention and htibl1;:
three groups of faculties, Intellect,
feeling and willaud three operations.
acquisition, assimilation and expres
sion. Teaching Is directly concernotf
with the operations. The body 11c
quires and must assimilate food. Body
and mind are much alike In these two
functions. There is often too much
acquiring stuffing with words with
out assimilation. The ideas and facts
which words represent must lie taken
up and assimilated until they are
ready to become elements of new
thoughts, and these must bo tested by
expression. Imagination and judg
ment are the stomach of the mind,
the assimilative powers. The four .vays
of expression are oral words, written
words, drawings and objects. The pro
fessor's plea for the extension of ex
pression hi drawing and manual train
ing was strong and practical.
Dr. lloarlc made a few closing re
marks. He never attended an insti
tute in which the close gave evidence
of a better slate of feeling, fellowship,
and profit thnn tills. He paid a beauti
ful and earnest tribute to 'the welcome
and entertainment given the teachers
Tho teachers of Wood Co. Teachers'
Association feeling that the week of
institute work now drawing to a close
lias been all that could he desired in
elllcient instrucion, social enjoyment,
and professional unthiisiasm, desire to
express their appreciation of the suc
cess of the work.
Be it therefore, resolved: First that
our thanks be, extended to the board of
education for. tho use ol tho school
building; to Supt. Haylor, tho teach
ers of Perrysburg and vicinity and all
the citizens of Perrysburg for their
hearty welcome and royal entertain

their music which added greatly to our
enjoyment of the evening reception;
to Mr. James Hayes for guiding us
over scenes of historic interest; to tho
Perrysburg Journal for its hearty sup

talk; and to all thoso who have as
sisted iu the line of special music; and
that the staff of instructors and musi
