The Successful Teaoher.
In lion of any remarks from us on
..this fruitful subject, wo subjoin a par
agraph fron? the able addles* of Dr.
W. M. Gricr before the teachors of
Abbeville County We arc sorry we
can't insert bis entire address. In
speaking of the capacity of the teach
er for communicating knowledge as a
guarantee of success, be says :
/'He may.be thoroughly informed
in grammar, history, arithmetic and
geography and yet be a poor teacher.
Jle may fail entirely to inspire that
desiro for knowledge, that love of
truth which is the grand end in all
.leaching. He may bo so dellcieut in
power of analysis, in a capacity to
'eimplify and render attractive the
topic of the hour that every lesson
will be a dull task to the pupil, except
du those rare cases, with those bright
geniuses who need a teacher not to
inspire but simply to guide and curb
mental effort. It should never he
iorgotlcn that the most extensive anil
accurate knowledge docs not lit me
for a professional educator. In your
own experience as pupils you have
noticed a marked difference in the
success of teachers who did not dilf r
in the extent of their knowledge?
..while the one interested and instruct
ed you, the other simply tasked you.
While one stimulated you and made
.the lesson a delight, the other drove
you to every subterfuge to avoid a
recitation. And inasmuch as all
those tests which arc employed to de
termine the qualifications of teachers
relate only to the amount and accura
cy of knowledge there is very great
danger lest we judge when we have a
first grade certificate that we are first
class teachers. Let us not thus lower
ami narrow our professions. Not
only must we have a thotongh knowl
edge of the branches we propose to
teach, but we must address ourselves
to the woik of making all knowledge
pleasant to those who have heretofore
found their only pleasure in rude
sports, pithless jokes and green fruit.''
Gen. Robert K. Lee, that grand old
Christain chiellain whose name will
.live as long as there is left a page in
history on which to record his heroic
deeds, hands the following advice
d^Wn to posterity, and we earnestly
"call the attention of the parents there
'kThe parent, after committing his
child to the teaching of another,
should continue to manifest an nlfec
tioliale interest in his improvement
by constant inquiry and encourage
ment. 'Jhc supplying of young per
sons, while absent from their homes,
with needless money, and the permis
sion to contract debts, arc to be rep
robated, as tempting to a sinlnl prod
igality and multiplying the dangers
qf contracting habils of vice. The
proper authority of teachers must be
firmly sustained by parents. Kvcrv
'jouhg person should be informed by
his parents I hat he must give dili
gence to profit by bis studies, or
"else must be compelled to make him
'self useful to society Ivy actual labor
in Millie humbler sphere.'
How much less trouble tin; teacher
would experience if this manly coun
sel were taken. Cilfcous [ arcnls al
ways make unruly scholars. ,

OllAKOKBUKO, September lat, 1879.
Mit. EniTOlt:?In your issue of last
Week, I find this sentence : '"The knife
la worth a dollar," and an inquiry
' appended as to the manner in which
"woith" should lie parsed. I would
suggest that "worth*' is a predicate
ndjective limiting the noun "knife,"
and is itself modified by the noun
"dollar," according to the "Special
Knie" found in many grammars:!
'?Nouns denoting time, value, weight, j
or measurement, ore commonly put |
''in the objectivo caso without a gOV-J
'crnfng word." W. II. Lawhf.nch.
We shall not quarrel with the Pro.,
j'essor for Iiis disposition of the word
"worth," but we would like to know
what right any grammarian has to I
ptiy that "dollar"' is in "the objective
case without a governing word." lly j
what itile do these grammarians lind'
out that such nouns used in such posi-!
lions, are in the objective case rather
than the nominative? We consider
the rule referred to very ridiculous
and inCOUbis'.eut. Cannot "worth"
also be parsed as a preposition ?
At the late meeting of the Teach
ers* Convention of Greenville County,
a lecturer was employed to give the
teachers instructions in Heading,
Arithmetic, Geography and Gram
mar, "and also in Mental Philosophy
ami School Government. Rev. H. I.
M01 ton of the Greenville Normal
School conducted Ihc proceedings,
and great good was accomplished.
The expense was nothing in compari
son to the benefits derived, and we
commend the precedent to our School
C ommissioner. Wo caniiot build up
educational inaltors in our county,
unless wc arc willing to labor and toil,
and endure a little expense uhd trou
