THE WAYNE COUNTY TEACHERS'
INSTITUTE IN SESSION
Meetings Began Monday in High
School Auditorium 240 Wayne
County Teachers Attend Inter
esting Sessions.
Institute opened at 2 o'colck with
an enrollment of 245 teachers.
The genial face of Prof. John T.
Watklns was greeted with enthusi
asm as ho was presented to the audi
ence by County Superintendent J. J.
Koehler.
Singing followed, Miss Blanche
Pearco presiding at the piano.
Devotional exercises wero leu oy
Rev. George S. Wendell of the Bap
tist church.
Supt. Koehler then spoke a f'aw
words of welcome. He said that' in
previous years tho people of Hones-
dalo had accused tho teachers of
bringing with them stormy, disagree
able weather. This year they have
brought beautiful weather. The
dandelion and strawberry blossoms
are with us and we lack only the
rosebuds and tree foliage to mako a
bright May day. The teachers have
brought line weather and it is up to
the people of our town to keep it for
them all this week.
At this time an election of threo
vice-presidents and two auditors' was
held. Tho following were elected:
Vice-presidents, Prof. R. T. Davies,
Prof. Kennedy and Miss Leola
Smith; auditors, Miss Florenco
Brown, Burton Sluman.
Singing.
Tho lirst speaker of the afternoon
was Prof. O. L. Warren, of Elmira,
N. Y. His subject was "Him That
Has Gits." In his opening remarks
I'ror. Warren said: I am glad you
have a superintendent who asks you
to take off your hats. I don't care
to look down upon hats. I like to
see your faces and look Into your
eyes." An institute ought to be good
every mlnuto from start to finish. In
Introducing his subject tho speaker
Bald: "My subject is a quotation, so
please do not lay the language up
against me. 1 couldn't find a son
tenco of four words in the English
language with such pedagogical slg
niflcanco as these four words."
Prof. Warren then told tho follow
ing story, illustrating his subject:
When he was a boy a farmer invited
him, among other boys, to come to
his home and gather butternuts from
under his butternut treo. They
went. Tho boy Warren saw tho but
ternuts lying plentifully on tho
ground, but alas, ho had forgotten to
bring a bag to gather them in and
his homo was a mile and a half
away. 'Twas then that tho farmer
spoko to him tho consoling words,
"Them That Has Gits." However,
tho man soon felt sorry for tho dis
appointed boy and supplied him with
a bag from his own barn. This little
story applies to your school work.
All tho classes held are excursions
for lntollectunl butternuts. Wo
ought to seo that tho pupils are pro
vided with bags to gather their but
ternuts in. "I always like to visit a
school when I can for I learn a good
deal." In visiting ono school I
found teachers ready for now ideas
and I found teachers ready to ex
plain why they employ this method
or that. In visiting another school
the speaker saw some things ho did
not like. Ho heard a Caesar class
In recitation and the pupils didn't
know what tho book was about. It
had no significance to them. When
told that the book was written by
tho Caesar who was assassinated
ono bright girl was overhead to re
mark that sho wished bo had been
assassinated beforo ho wrote it. Tho
teacher out of patlenco with their
failures at recitation, asked Mr. War
ren to apeak a word of cheer to the
pupils. He replied thus: "My dear
sir, something is wrong. They aro
not getting any power out of this
They are getting habits ot mind
wandering that Is all." Tho pupils
wero there for Latin butternuts and

and llrm in tho resolve to

cause for contented gratitude.
