"I Had rather have newspapers with out government than government with out newspapers," said Jefferson. Glory is well enough for a rich man, but it is of very little consequence to a poor man with a large family. A faskionablo lady dropped one of her eyebrows in the church pew, and dread ully frightened a man sitting next to her, who thought it was his moustache. A crusty old bachelor, uot liking the way hia landlady's daughter had of ap propriating his hair oil, filled his bottle with liquid glue the day before a ball to which the girl was invited. She stayed at home in consequence. The United States take th lead of all nations in enterprise and competition and New York is the first, generally, to offer the greatest advantages. Almost every month brings forth new advertisements, as liberal in their terms as they are sparkling in their originality. Iu an other column of this paper the Grand Opera Co., 129 Fulton Street, New York, advertise to give performances throughout the United States and dis tribute $100,000 among purchasers of tickets. Ticket holders receive a hand some present at the time of purchase; admission to one opera; and a chance of a prize at the final presentation. We do not endorse gift enterprises; but this does not appear to class as such, but rather a Stock Company, giving bona Ancle Operas and then returning to their patrons a great share of the profits This is indeed competition, and certainly guarantees to every one the value of his money. 2tG.

A. Pattison. I earnestly protest against tedious lectures and am decidedly in favor of giving each teacher an opportunity of express ing lira ideas which may bo new, intei estinsr. and profitable to others. Teach ers of to-day have assumed the respon sibility ot training boys and i;irls to bo men and women; to occupy places of trust m the household and tn the na tion. We should train them intellec tually and moially. For the latter pur pose the bible is given ns, containii g the principles which underlie the gov ernment and institutions we enjoy. Rev. Levi Little We came here to learn the laws which govern the mind and its action in gaining knowledge. If we cannot do much, we can and should do a little and thus have new thoughts snsriiestod and gain strength for the next effort. There is a great chance Cot improvement in educational affairs, and if we all do a little, we can mako some improvement. Mr. Huiicy being called, paid he had so little eloquence he thought best to save it for a laraer audience. lie thought the teachers were at first a little nervops. but would soon commence work in earnest and make the Institute inter esting and profitable.

Levi Little then took charge of a rending class, consisting of all present, and made some suggestions in regard to the objects of elas-reuding.

Prof. Cooper of Ediuboto State Normal School, thou took up the sub ject .theory or leaching. I hcory ot teaching defined by L. !) Rockwell as a scries of principles gov erning the communication of knowledge and the education of mind. .Miss Orr defined teaching as impart ing knowledge, and learning as gaining knowledge.

Prof. Cooper on grammar sill Chil dren learn to use the different modifica tions and endings by hearing them. Questions difficult to decide without a book are quite as difficult with a book. The Greeks used their languago correct ly without a grammar. No grammer existed in the days of Cieero and Homer. Spanish peasants speak as cor rectly as lord Demosthenes read the works ot Thucidides eight times to be come familiar with his expressions. Childreu use some irregular words re gularly, asmouses for mice and chickies fai chickens. We should therefore teach the art of grammer by correcting these mistakes. Thursday Afternoon Session.

The habits of all auimals remain for k"s unchanged. Man nlono is capable of doing better continually improving I Evou angels and archangels as far as we know are oo wiser or better than they always were. Notwithstanding this very few per sons make much improvement. We as teachers should say. 1st. I can and will improve. Progress is to bo able to do more to-day than yesterday. We may work no harder but be ablo to work more skillfully. 2d. I will use all op portunities to gain knowledge. Every teacher should spend sometime in study. By study wo not only gain strength of mind but can better understand the difficulties of pupils. All persons find time for that in which they take great delight. Wo fbould Btudy first, sub jects of general interest. Second, our profession. Third, our school influences and surroundings. Fourth, we should study human nature in school, in so ciety in individuals. Ho who spends well all his time and energy is happiest.

Mr. Rockwell If wo use no text books we will have no grammer taught in our schools. As it is wo use books too much. There is a scicuec nnd an art of grammar of the English language. Wc may teach the art to primary classes and the science to those more advansed from a text book making the lessons to be learned short nnd tho practical ex amples numerous. Mr. Hamblen We should teach grammer from text books because it preserves unity in our language. Wc wiU'chnngo the present s)stm of teach ing grammer when wc find it is not good. We should adhere strictly to the lext book used. Prof Cooper was then requested to spend ten minutes in telling how to teach grammar Ho said, wc should know hnw to spenk ami write so that we will bo unmistakably understood. We can talk but not write without difficulty, therefore exercises in grammar should be to a great extent in writing. We may read a story for the pupi's to copy or give them words from which to con struct sentences The following persons were then elected as. n committee on permanent certificates; Miss Addie Taylor, Mis Sophia Coleman, and Messrs. J. B. Alvord, B. C. Whacler, and L. D. Rockwell.
