Other Institute Matter.
There was a good sized audienee
present at Assembly hall in the High
school building last night to listen to
the lecture bv Prof. Conistock on
'Our Heritage." A quartet com
posed of Prof. Housel. O. H. I reel,
Harry Van luzcr ami John IVrret
rendered a vocal selection, after
which County Superintendent Mar
shall introduced Prof. McCormick.
The speaker began his lecture l say
ing that we are all heirs. Everyone
has been given something and no one
has been forgotten. Some have in
herited mansions and wealth, while
others live in LuuiMe homes. Many
have bee u gifted with happy progres
sive natures anil still others with
deep sympathetic hearts. lie spoke
of the transmission of these different
characteristics from our forefathers
ami in this way demoust rated how
many are hamlieapped in the race of
life ly instincts inherited from the
fathers of our race. In this connec
tion he also took occasion to show
how easv it was for some to follow in
the paths of rectitude, v. hile others
are diverted therefrom all because of
this selfsame transmission of charac
teristics. The 1' nited States Ou r Heritage.
These, he said, were the gifts we
had received individually, but there
was one that we had all received in
common, it was the grand repuldie
of the United States. The speaker
then related the. circumstance of a
party of American gentlemen dining
in Paris, when one. in response to a
toast to the United States, floutuled
it as an illustration of its geographi
cal greatness. A second gentleman,
not content with that, arose and said
that it was bounded on the north by
the mrth pole, on the south by the
south pole, on the east by the rising,
and on the west by the set ting sun. A
third member of the party, a gentle
man from Illinois, then- rising, said
he was surprised that those preced
ing him had been so limited in their
estimation of the manifest destiny of
this magnificent republic. Said he,
it is bounded on the north by the
aurora boreulis. on the south by the
precession of the equinoxes, on the
east by primeval chaos and on the
w estjiy t he tiay or judgment- 1'roi.aic-
t'ormick then spoKe ot tlie greatness
of the nation in all its resources. In
so doing he termed our great plains
the harvest tields or the worm, our
plateaus the pastures of the world.
and our mountains the treasure
boxes of the world. He mentioned
our creat water courses and dwelt
at some length on the country in
the geographical greatness, saving
that Maine says good-night to Alas
ka t good-morning.
Kieh In ICesourres.
The speaker next did the work of
a statistician and in many wavs gave
his auditors illustrations of the
greatness of the nation in agricultu
ral, mineral and manufacturing
wealth. He spoke of our seemingly
inexhaustible supply of oil and gas
and of the progress that is being
made in electrical science that is des
tined to revolutionize the world. In
order to form some conception of
what our future destiny would be the
speaker said it would be necessary to
go back to the beginning of civiliza
tion. This he did and led his hearers
along the line of march of civiliza
tion from its first institution on the
banks of the Nile down to
the present day. Speaking of Colum
bus and his discovery and the plant
ing of the tree of true liberty, the
first the world had ever known. He
traced the coming of the Pilgrim
fathers and the settlements in Iela
ware and Rhode Island, and said they
had instituted principles that were
just and w holesome, namely, relig
ious liberty, justice and industry, and
upon which their sons have built a
grand republic. The professor
next mentioned the blessings this
country offered to the poor of all na
tions and said that what is true of
this country is true of no other na
tion tn the globe. He derided the
idea that our country is growing
more vicious from a moral stand
point and said that those who say it
is are false prophets and there is no
truth in their prediction.
Advice to Teacher.
Prof. McCormick then in a rapid
manner outlined the sterling events
of the late war and spoke of how
lightly it is thought by some teach
ers. He contended that it should be
taught to the children as it really
was that they should be made to
know that there was a right side and
a wrong side, and that nothing con
nected with those stormy times
should be smoothed over. Teach
.hem to be forgiving, but also let
them know true history.
The professor touched lightly on
the Anarchy question and closed with
a grand eulogy on the American flag.
His remarks were interesting and
were closely followed by hia audi-1
ence frjrm beginning to end. At the
conclusion 'of his lecture, Prof. Mc
Cormick was presented with a beau
tiful eprey of cut flowers by little
Waldo Lisldn", on behalf tf tlie teach j
ers, another cluster of flowers being
presented to .superintendent Marshall
in a similar manner. Both gentle
men expressed their sincere appre
ciation in fitting terms, and after a
song by the quartet and the singing
of America by the audience the meet
ing dispersed; , . .
Work of the County Normal.
When the school ma'ams opened
their sleepy eyes this m-jrning and
listened to the music of the falling
drops, they congratulated themselves
on the prospect of cooler weather for
their last dajs work. And their ex
pectations have been fully verified.
For intellectual work the weather
today could not have been surpassed.
At the appointed time Mr. Housel
started in with the vocal music ex
ercise. The work this year has been
of a more advanced nature than
heretofore, all of which suits the
singers first rate. Prof. McCormick's
talk on pedagogy was pregnant with
good sense ami wise remarks. The
professor spoke from the standpoint
of the pupil. To hold the respect of
the boys and girls the teacher must
be thoroughly truthful, he must not
pretend to know that which he does
not. Courteous treatment of his
pupils increases the power of the
teacher. Self control is the first re
quisite of a successful school ma'am.
Polite deportment comes next.
Teachers are advised to let sarcasm
and ridicule strictly alone. They
are dangerous instruments with
whiclto handle young people. The
teachers must get acquainted
with the parents in order
to exert the best in
fluence for good over the school. Un
der the topic of literature. Prof.
Hi shop called attention to the fact
that our Ameaican literature is rap
ii'.lv becoming worthy of the most
circful study of the scholar. A good
list of American writers was given,
and the teachers were advised to
read, study and teach their best pro
ductions. In geography Mr. McCor
mick advocated system" in giving in
struction in that study He suggest
ed good outline with which the con
tinent should be presented to a class.
Prof. Hishop continued his good work
in percentage. Ioth teachers and
pupils are too much addicted to
working for the answer in the book.
This is work. Pupils should in many
ct.ses ignore the answer. The man
ner of 'solution is the prime thing.
Miss Muse's work in synthetic read
ing attracts the whole institute,
there being no other work on the
program at that hour.
At ::!." yesterday afternoon L. C.
Douuh.'rt v" gave a lalk on science
work and" continued his remarks of
Wednesday on the teaching of bota
ny. 1 he outline, margin, apex ami
base of the leaf were all thoroughly
discussed. Mr. Dougherty did not
leave a leaf unturned on the sntufct
of leaves. Leaving this theme the
attention of the class was called to
the flower. Thecalvs was defined as
being the outer row of leaves of the
flower. To bring about a love of
flowers the child should be required
to plant the seed, carefully watch it
germinate, sprout, grow ana event
ually reproduce its kind.
City Superintendent Kemble was a
prominent visitor t Ins morning.
The synthetic reading system
seems tobe winning popularity.
The music by the male quartet
last night was greatly appreciated.
Only one name was added to the
roll this morning in the person of
There will be no examination for
certificates this week. Julv 7 and 8

Last year's enrollment reached the
high water mark of 200. Up to date
this year it is only 176.
Dr. Kinyon. the newly elected
member of the board, is a brother-in-law
of Prof. Henry McCormick.
There is no doubt but that Mc
Creight, the School News man, is the
humorist of the institute this year.
Supt. Marshall's suspicion that his
teachers are beginning to like and re
spect him appears to be well-found
The men are scarce. There are
hardly enough of them to get up a
base ball club. McCreigUt is the
only line looker in the lot.

It is suggested that Supt. Mar

would be interesting reading lor
