THE TEACHERS' SCHOOL.
Comity Superintendent Marshall's
The Courses or Inatrnclion 'and
Those in Charge The Enroll
ment. The Rock Island County Teachers' in
stitute is flourishing under Superinten
dent Marshall's direction.
Th s is Prof . Marshall's first institute,
and be is naturally a little solicitous as
to it? 8ucces3. From pressnt appear,
anees it iseasi'y seen that his hope) are
to be realiz;d. First he was extremely
fortuiate in secunog Dr. Charles De
Garmo as one of the instructors. Dr.
De O urmo is so well and favorably known
in Ito;k Island county that his presence
alone insures a laro atteadance and a
successful institute. Bis reputation in
pedagogical circles has beeome national.
He has eacceeded in leaving his imprint
in a large number of the counties of this
state. His lectures on the science of ed
ucation are invaluable to both primary
and advanced teachers.
Prof. Bishop, of Rock Island High
school, is doing his customary excellent
work in reading, arithmetic, history
methods and elementary physics. Miss
Emma Stratford, Moline'a educator, is
conducting classes in primary reading
and in form study and drawing. Prof,
G. R. Housel, our well known music
man, looks after the vocal part of the in
stitute twice each day.
Mot day's weather was entirely unsat
isfactory to the teachers, but showers
that right made things just as they
should be. However, the falling drops
yesterday morning caused considerable
tardiness, much to the annoyance of
Prof. Housel's vocal music class, at 8:30.
The programme as followed Monday
has beon slightly changed for the re
mainder of the week. Dr. DeGarmo's
talk or. the science of education was giv
en before all the teachers in the morning.
It will only be given once a day hereaf
ter. The theme yesterday morning
dwelt upon the interest of the pupil.
The pupil's interest should be given more
to the subject, than to the teacher or his
manner of presenting it. A great differ
ence is noticed in the ability that teach
ers display in making the subjsct of recU
tations interesting. They should contin
ually s' dy hew best to present the mu
ter in I and, be it the dryest grammar or
the mo.st wearisome geographical statis
tics. A successful teacher will know
more than the text book, that is if he is
well read. There will be a variety of in
formation given that the simple text
book d les not allude to association is
the key to interest. One thing must be
associated with another, before it can be
come psrmanently fixed in the pupil's
Prof. DeGarmo's dictionary work was
highly interesting from the fact that it
broush' out fo tnanv unsuspected imper
fections in the most common of words.
No woiider tbe puMic school pupil mis
pronouaces so often. About six out of
every l'J of tne teachers can't, or rather
don't si-e-ak the words correctly.
The public at large, as well as the
teachers at the institute, will be gratified
to know that an opportunity will be given
tonight to hear Henry Raab, state super
intend at of public instruction, lecture at
the Higa school building.
Miss Emma (Stratford's work in form
study and drawicg deserves especial men
tion. A box of blocks is furnished each
teacher, also a chunk of clay. Under
instructions the school ma'am's roll
and pat the hunks of mud until they
become cubes, spheres, cylinders, etc.
This is ihe way they are expected to in
struct their pupils when the golden rod
begins to blossom. To watch the opera
tions of the teachers furnishes the specta
tor lots of interest and amusement. Some
of the spheres looked more like hen's
eggs tl.an globes, and the only thing
about tl e cubes which was correct was
their solidity. But this was the first at
tempt for some, and the work will un
doubtedly be better tomorrow. Miss
Stratfor j, however, is certainly a master
of tbe art and her class is greatly enjoyed.
In grwnmar Prof. DeGarmo talked of
nouns, their classes and divisions. He
showed that the noun deserves plenty of
thought as well as the more difficult verb.
A plot is being laid to produce a
ShaKesp jarian comedy on Friday evening
at the High, school building. Dr. De
Garmo will carry a leading part. "Rosa
lind" wi'.l be supported by a noted elocu
tionist. Of course the Shakespeare . lov
ing pubic will be welcome. G. V. P.

A Pleasant ;nd 1'rofltable aiei ting at
the Watch :Tower-Tlie:rart .or the
The Tri-City Ministerial Union held a
very pleasant meeting Monday at the
Watch tower. It had been arranged
that to this meeting the ministers were
to bring their wives. Quite a number
of them did so and added largely to the
pleasure and interest of the occasion. So
much did they enj jy having the ladies
along that they decided to invite them to
the next meeting at Moline.tiie first Mon
day la September.
The union was called to order by the
president. Rev. H. C. Marshall, at 10:30
a. m., and after devotional exercises an
able paper on "Young People's Societies
and Inter-denomination'ilism," was
read by Rev. U. Z. Gilmer, of
Davenport. He took strong grounds in
favor of. the organization of denomina
tional societies as opposed to an inter
denominational society . This provoked
a spirited discussion, which took up tbe
time of the morning session. After din
ner "Americanism for America," was the
subject which was presented in an ad
dress by Rev. W. S. Marquis, of this
city. The time having arrive! fur ad
journment cut short' the di.-cussion en
his subject, but it will be lesumed,
at least in one phase of it. at the next
meeting' under the caption, "Public
Schools, vs. Parochial Schools.''
An excellent dinner was served in the
pavilion at 1 o'clock, by Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Lamp, wko did everything they
could to please, and who have the hearty
thanks of all who were present. At the
conclusion cf the dinner tbe following
toasts were responded to: "Tbp Tri
Citj Ministerial Union," Rev. Mclntire;
"The Ministers' Wives," Mrs. Gue;
"Preachers and lea Cream ," Dr. Little.
Altogether this was one ot the most
pleasant and profitable meetings of the
union ever held.
