Yesterday was the best attended day so
far. The weather has no difficulty in
suitiDg the school ma'am's who usually
are quite particular in that respect. It i
a little strange, however, that the teachers
are not more punctual at the music
classes in the morning and afternoon.
Either they don't care whether they are
on time or not or else the lessons in
music are not appreciated as they should
Prof. DcGarmo in bis morning lecture
used observation as his subject. The
spider, the ant and the bee are the models
which are followed by teachers. The
bee was decided to be the best example
for emulation. Observation should not
be entirely a training of the senses. The
mind itself should be made the base of
operations. Words alone are the most
abstract of symbols; the child needs assis
tance to interpret them. This can be
done in no way so well as by observation.
To the child the word "cat" means only
and individual name of several objects.
To the student of natural history it stands
for a mass of knowledge, it represents
information of the whole cat family. Spe
cial emphasis was placed upon the evils
of an indiscriminate helping of the pupil
by his usually too willing teacher. 'Tis
much better to leave fcim to his own re
sources, with perhaps s'ight aid ia the
shape of a few judicious questions.
In arithmetic Prof. Bishop talked of
the different methods of addition and di
vision. Short division is. generally
taught to the pupil before long division.
There are good arguments against this

machines. In his opinion there are only

la the afternoon there was a pleasant
exercise by Mrs. Runcie. a teacher of elo
cution from Princeton, lad. Her subject
was "Expression in Reading;" all read
ins should be done as aa art. The artic
ulation of the war is, the look of the face
and the tone of the voice are the three
elements to be observed in good delivery.
At 2:15 State Superintendent Raab read
a jsper before the institute on "The Pri
mary Teacher and the Primary School."
Araong other things the reader noted the
prevailing di sire anions; many primary
teachers to leave that branch of the work
for something higher and more advanced.
No teacher needs more love of his calling
than the primary teacher. To watch the
development of the growing child, to
note e7cry advance made on the field of
progress is most interesting. Teachers
in country districts often slight the chil
dren for the grown up boya and girls .
The six year old needs a good founda
tion for bis future education. The most
rapid progress and best results charac
terize the first two years' work. No
teacher should appear before his class
without thorough preparation. A teach
er's first impression on little folks is gen
era'.!; a lasting one. A primary teacher
should always be cheerful. He should
cultivate patience, be not abrupt and
harsh. His love is the sunshine which
make the little ones unfold. A judicious
teacher will look carefully after the
hygienic influence which surround bis pu
pils. B3 thoughtful of your commands;
never countermand aa order; never break
your promise to the children, they are
the keenest judges of a teacher's strength
or weakness. A tcacher'6 warm heart
and knowledge of human nature will best

SDPT. BAAB'8 EVENING LECTURE.
In the assembly room at the High
school last evening, State Superintendent
of Public Instruction Henry Kaab deliv
ered an instructive and scholarly lecture
on "The Imagination as a Factor in So
cial Life." The consideration of the
orkingjof social forces, said the speaker.
is a. l.ifjuiy interesting study, a strictly
methodical idaa of social forces being
yet in its infancy. Yet with tha aid of
statistics we are enabled to measure the
social forces. The imagination was treat-,
ed as one of the principal of these which
influences mankind. He spoke of the
imagination of the poet and the artist as
affording beautiful illustrations, and of
the maniac and fever patient as terrible
and forbidding. Our own imagination
oftttmes terrorizes and tortures us. A
person without imagination fol
lows the usual course laid
down by precedent, while on
imaginative person leaves the regular and
probable and adopts the irregular and ex
traordinary. The family is the chief
social structure when love is the princi
pal force. He touched upon the vast
differences in the ideals of love and im
agination, which are harmonized by self
control and good judgment.
The imagination is a general function
of the human soul. By it we are made
to produce at will recollections of the
past. Imagination creates alovecf home
and country. It peoples the home with,
beautiful beings, and when in distant
lanas it pictures the home as a sacred
place. The influences of the mental dis
position on the social being was analyzed.
Custom was described as the lubricator
which decreases friction between men
and prevents men from overstepping the
usual bounds of society. The imagination
influences the social forces only in so far
as we are able to measure them indirectly.
The difficulty is to isolate the social
forces. Self-control and force of charac
ter were spoken of as contributing to the
formation of social forces. Imagination
assists in lessening the faults and form
ing desirable qualities. So of love; the
harmonious ideal ot youth U gained in
the happiness of the family. The family
and abode of man is potent in social
forces. The natural surroundings of man
form rich impressions which sink into
the treasury of the foul. Remembrance,
which is closely a'iied to imagination, is
the root of love, which is one or the most
potent factors in our social life. He
touched on the effect of social
whims and spoke at length of the iorce
of public opinion which calls the
accused guilty or innocent before trial,
prosecutes without mercy and pardons
with a laugh. Ia this connection Mr.
Raab spoke of the influence of the press
which should always endeavor to restrain
the imagination and act conscientiously
The spirit of the time3 was c'.assed as
another powerful social force, working
revelation and revolution, ail prompted
by the imagination of the masses.
Another social force is tne nationality of
the individual. An indirect connection
exists between the nationality and the
imagination. The formation of political
parties was suggested us a social force
and the differe nee between practical and
ideal political parties shown. The effect of
man's calling or profession was shown as a
potent social force, affecting his prop
erty and income. ;
Education is a social force, but imag
ination does not fluru largely here as
many of our learned men lack the irnag
inative quality. He alluded to the rela
tion of the imagination to scientific re
search, religion and art and said these
effects would be left to the consideration
of his hearers.
Mr. Traesdal- tw OCire.
A dispatch from St. Paul last night
and which, if the tews be true, will be
received with delight by the friends of
the gentleman in the tri-cities. is to the
effect that ex-Receiver W. H. Truesdale,
of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad,
is booked for-the position as acting pres
ident of the Rock Island road, relieving
President Cable of the bulk of the heavy
work. The probability that such an of
fice as acting president would be cre
ated was tie cause, doubtless, of the
rumor that the president of the Rock Isl
and road intended to resign. There was
no question that President Cable has all
he can do, more than he ought to do, but
with some one to relieve him there will
be fewer rumors sfloat in regard to him
resigning bis position as president of the
Rock Island road.
