EVERY THURSDAY AT

A. S. SCHEETZ, EDITOR.
, The meeting of the Teachers' Asso
elation at Prosperity was one of the
most interesting and profitable that it
has been our privilege to attend.
Miss Hodges, though prevented from
being present herself manifested her in
terest in the cause by sending to the
meeting a most excellent paper on "The
Word Method of Teaching Reading."
This paper elicited an animated discus
sion. Opinion, however, seemed to
preponderate in favor of the Word
Method, or rather a combination of the
Word and Alphabetic Methods. Mr.
W. K. Sligh then gave an interesting
talk on English Grammar. He express
ed the belief that technical Granmiar
should not be taught as early as is eus
tomary, but that pupils should be care
fully trained, from the day they enter
school, in the correct use of language.
This subject was again discussed quite
freely and Mr. Sligh's position was
Prof. E. O. Counts nest addressed the
meeting on the general work of the
association and gave expression ;o some
sentiments not altogether complimen
tary to the rank and file of the peda
gogic corps, but we suspect that he "got
there," sorry as we are to acknowledge
it. Teachers ought to take more inter
est in their work and avail themselves
of every means possible for self-im
provement. "As the teacher is so is the

learn- and his pupils will catch the

"So far the average American col
lege has obstinately refused to recognize
the existence of such a science as peda
gogy. Its young men are sent forth to
occupy the commanding positions of
high, grammar, and academical school
masters, often with no valuable experi
ence even in the lower grades of in
struction, and even - a course of
College lectures or intelligent refer
ence to the literature of their
great profession. Coming into these
difficult positions, for which their
scholastic attainments are of amply
sufficient, they find themselves in con
. tact with subordinate lady-assistants
who have received the best drill acces
sible in normal and training schools,
backed by a considerable experience in
'" all grades of the conimon school-room.
It is inevitable that two forces so charg
ed with positive.and negative elements
should strike fire. In hundreds of
school-rooms the success of the instruc
tion is marred by this open or smother
ed conflict; the learned young man,
contemptuous of the academical inferi
ority of his girl-assistant; the bright
girl-graduate of the normal school,
- *electric with tact and on edge with the
new methods, poking fun at the pomn
pous, pedagogic incapacity of her prin
cipal. I am convinced, from long ob
* servation, that much of the power
generated in the best normal and train
ing-schools, and institutes, is swamped
by the obstinate indifference or hostility
of the average male college graduate in
the master's chair, to anything that has
not entered his college curriculum. The
result is all the worse, that the average
college method of instruction is proba
bly the most hopeless style of teaching
now on the ground; often a bigoted
holding cn to the meehaniical habit of
cramming a boy with the contents of
a small library of books, and calling
that a iliberal education.'
The profession of pedagogy is the
latest co-ner among the liberal profes
sions of :his country. The law, theolo
gy, and medicine are already so crowd
ed with partially and well-educated
candidates, that the people are able to
select the wheat from the chaff. No
community of any considerable preten-'
-sion is now compelled to take up with
a pettifogger for its lawyeJ,. a quack
for its doctor or an ignorant gospel
ranter for its minister. The objec
tive point of our system. of normal
e:lucation is to stimulate the prepara
tion of teachers by agencies, public and
private, popular and collegiate, till the
same "glut in the market" enables the
school committees to go into the field
and choose the best the money supplied
by the people will command."--Rev.
Dr. A. 1). Mayo.
Methods of Teachinig.
* "We see and reprove the worse, we
coddle and imp)rove the better." The
weight of this lies in our application of
methods, and of these methods the
most interesting to us arc the Word
and Phonic Methods, because so closely
applied to Primary teaching.
The Word Method was first intro
-- duced into this country by Prof. Webb,
after whomi it was called the Webb
Method. In England this method is
called the "Look-and-say" Method.
The first advocate of the method was a
French Philosopher, who lived from

The true basic p)rinciple of this syv
temn is, first, the idea. second. the spoken
* word, and third, the written fornm.
Thle object lesson which stimulates
the idIea is, howvever, the true founda
tion of which it is planted. We know the
perceptive faculties arc most active in
the first years of school life and then it
is that we teach best by objects, how
ever homely they may be. so they serve
to-give the pupil the idea.
Many reasons may be given in favor
of the Word Method. That it is the
natural method seems to be the strong
est. What prattling infant first gave
the peculiar. sound of a single letter ?
Did he not attempt a word of fond en
lows the manner of written language..
First characters for objects, second for
words, and then for letters.
The pupils are more easily interested TI
in something that they can see-nay, -bu
even touch-than such abstract forms
that in past ages were taught from the
"Blue-backed" Spelling Book, and
pointed at with a formidable ruler. him
That pronunciation is taught by this A
method we can not deny. The pupil ally
necessarily acquires the habit of pro- pro
nunciation in connecting the names som
and forms of words. for 1

The word method should not be car- the I
ried too far, but should be followed by if
the Phonic Method, yet, there is dan- com<
ger of dropping it too early. a ve
The Phonic Method teaches the ele- wyu
mentary sounds of the letters, rather
than their names. After the sounds are A
learned then teach them to combine
these so as to form words. have
There are many ways of teaching this the
first lesson in elementary sounds. A it, a
simple way, and one too that is He

lect a number of letters, one on each forw

class. First let the teacher give the law:

A serious objection to this method is, A F
that we have only twenty-six letters,
while at least forty elementary sounds. Bi
The child becomes confused when he
learns that "a" has a short sound in nwas
"at," another in "far,'' another in wi
"fall," another in "fare," etc. The
silent letters are a hindrance. fer
Even with this serious objection its frier
benefits are incalculable. Nothing can '

Bones on ths Seven Pines Battlefield. laid
Capt. John Maxwt31and a number of
comrades of Lee Camp, Confederate
Veterns, were on the battlefield ofIn
Seven Pines a few days since. In look- all
ing over that former scene of bloody mo
arnage they found a number of bones cl't
piled up in various fields which had n
been turned up by the plough of the ace
succeeding farmer. He had put them the
aside in little heaps, but placed no E

From the position in which they were can

Railways and Civilization.
[Thomas Curtis Clarke, in Scribner's
Magazine for June.]
Railways have so cheapened the cost
of transportation that, while a load of
wheat loses all of its value by being
hauled one hundred miles on a common
road, meat and flour enough to supply
one man a year can, according to Mr.
Edward Atkinson, be hauled 1,500
miles from the West to the East for one
day's wages of thati man, if he be a
skilled mechanie. If freight charges
are diminished in the future as in the
past, this can soon be done for one day's
wages of a comnon laborer.
The nnniber of persons employed in
constructing, etiuipping, and operating
our railways is about two millions.

Cured by Thermometer.
[A. B. Ward, in Scribner's Magazine
The importance attached to a clinical
thermometer by those in ignorance of
its office approaches a superstition
They close their lips tightly upon it.
Their eves roll wildly around the room.
They believe that the tube contains
some mighty gas or a metal of mysteri
ous power. "There ain't much taste to
it, doether," said one of these credulous
fellows, "but I s'pose it's turiible
sthrong." Dr. , who is sonie
thing of a wag, encouraged the man's
faith in the occult virtues of the thing,
and with remarkable results, After the
first "dose," the fever abated. The
"treatment" was continued, and the
patient actually recovered, cured by
thermometer, administered fer in die,
without further drugging.
A Successful Southerner.
The following item about a well
known southerner is going the rounds
of the press: "John H. Inman, the
cotton king, is a southerner by birth
and is a splendid specimen of manhood,
standing over six feet in his stockings.
He was seventeen years old when the
war broke out, and fought through it
in confederate gray. Then, when it
was over, he turned his attention to
money-making and by 1880, when
thirty-six years old, had amassed a
fortune of severel millions. Only twen
ty years ago he went to New York
with less than $100 in his pocket to rep
resent his entire possessions."
