Singing "Seek the Savior.''
10:00 o'clock.--Topic, "Teachers' Meet

there were various shinies of opinion as to
their object, and according to the opinion
of their object so would their iii)Mrtniiee
be estimated. Hi view of their object was
never knew them to do any good. In
struction upon the lesson at these meetings
but distracted the teacher's mind.
Mrs. P. W. Barclay believed the teachers'
meeting to be a decided benefit. If the
teachers have studied tho lesson U'fore
coming to the meeting, they get additional
and valuable thoughts; shtmld be in favor
of it to the end of her days.
Mr. Lei'diton, said as a teacher that he
entirely disagreed with Mr. Wheeler; that
he would rather have fifteen minutes in a
teachers' meeting, properly conducted, than
helps;" he a'ways felt benefitted and bet
ter prepared to teach; it was tho teachers'
fault if not a success; by all means a live
Sunday school should have a teachers' meet-in-'.
Prof. Jerome said, the teacher need not
lose his individuality in the teachers' meet
ing: ever) successful Sunday school should
have a teachers' meeting; let the pastor lead ;
we are not to go to learn the lesson ; study
beforc.and exchange thoughts; then have
Time upon this topic extended fifteen
minutes. Rev. Mr. Maxy said they had
teachers' meeting in his charge; that they
could not live and do so well without them.

Father Pax.vui was xjsitively :-i favor of
teachers' meeting. The Bible must 1e
studied lx'fore goin'j, and then exchange
thoughts tlwre. He, would not command
an army without consultation with his
officers . Wanted to have a
weekly conference with his teacher.;;
part of the time should be given to recita
tion, a part to business and a part to so
ciability. We lose a power if we lose teach
Mr. Wheeler: Would not take an even
ing to it; a two minutes interview with
teacher sufficient ; did nut promse to dic
tate doctrine or ideas on the lesson; it was
not the superintendent's business; the many
excellent help exhaust the lesson sulli
cicntly without the aid of teachers' meet
ing: t .-iicbers don't need t ) b told how to
adapt tho lesson by the superintendent;
ages of scholars are"o different.
Time again extended 15 minutes. Rev.
Mr. Morrison said he was sumrised that
any one should opitose teachers' meetings;
all experience had proved them of great
benefit; the teachers thus form a lioard of
managers; ho favored teachers' meeting
Mr. Bristol regarded the teach
ers' meeting a convention in a small
degree. We can retain our individually
under their instruction too.
Mr. Paxson believed in teachers' meet
ings. The more teachers get together to
study the lesson the better Sunday school.
Rev. Mr. Davis told of a man opposing
teachers' meetings because he wanted the
time to post bis books.
President Fisher said theoretically Broth
er Wheeler was as far out of the way as can
be; practically in his school teachers' meet
ings could not be sustained. His uliin was:
devotional exercise, reports from t-nchers,
difficulties discussed and aid given, lesson
briefly gone over and salient points brought
out; don't teae'i (.achers plans for giving
the lesson to classes.
Singing "Where mo the Nine.''

is tho language of the emotions, not of
