There has been com plaint of late from dilferent parts of tbe country of raised money ordors, and some large losses on this account have boen reported. It is believed that the new form will prove ao effectual chock to swindling operations of this character. From local appearances the state leg islature has been too slow In dovising and enforcing adequate game protection Last year hunters from Pittsburg and New Castle spent weeks between this city and Grand Valley, slaughtering grouse. They were carried away by hundreds, A cold, wot spring followed and few young birds were hatched, Tbe result Is a scarcily unparalleled in the experience of Titusville sportsmen.

Same story everywhere. A new corn busker, perhaps the first oue in this section, was set up by Ma chine Agent Bromley, and did consider able work last Saturday on a batch of corn for 'Squire Caufield, The busker is fed like a threshing machine, the corn, fodder and all, going through and com ing out husked in good shape, while the fodder is completely shredded and blown into a bin or mow, Mr, Bromley has sold the machine to John Hinderer, of Ureeu township, who has already a large number of farmers on his list, enough to keep him busy for several weeks. Tbe speed of the machine is about 80 bushels per hour, and under tbe most favorable conditions will turn out more than that.

One of Tionosta's best institutions for all concerned is the planing mill of J, J. Landers, which has been kept buzzing continuously since it first started up. It is no longer necessary now, when in need of a batch of flooring, siding or dressed lumber of any kind to send away from home for it, causing days of delay, froight bills and other vexations too nu merous to mention. Mr. Landers also furnishes much other building material, such as lime, cement, brick, etc., making it convenient for all who have need of such to procure it right at borne, saving the annoyance of freight charges, dray age, and the like. Tbe planing mill is all right, and it is gratifying to know that the enterprise Is having a large run of patronage not only from our townspeople but tbe surrounding country ai well. Thomas Lambert, of Pittsburg, and John Foster, of Titusville, were hunting near Enterprise last Thursday wbeu both were shot in a peculiar manner, and as a result the former will lose the sight of bis right eye. Early in the morning their dog started a pheasant, and both meu took a shot at the bird. They were facing each other and tbe pheasant was between them. A single pellet from Foster's gun pene trated Lambert's eyelid and passed through his eyeball, Foster received part of tbe charge of Lambert's gun in bis band and one pellet of No. 6 .hot is imbedded firmly beneath bis scalp, but he was not seriously injured. Mr. Lam bert was taken to Titusville at 1 o'clock nd Dr. W. G. Johnston, who attended his injury, said that he would lose the sight of his eye. He left for his home in Pittsburg on an early train. The Presbyterians perpetrated a merry Hallowe'en prank on their pastor, Rev. Dr. Slonaker, when they, laden with well filled baskots, took possession of his lomo, turning its quietness iuto a scene of merry making and carrying gladness into every heart. Tbe evening, filled with laughter and music,passed all too rapidly. A dainty luuch, which all enjoyed, bad not been forgotten by the ladies, but the contents of the "woll filled baskots" were quietly and quickly transferred to the kitchen and when tho ell's departed lie pastor and bis wife were strongly re minded of an avalanche, not of snow but of fruit. Fruit of every variety and such a quantity. Aside from the fruit there were many other tangible expressions of good will which will be enjoyed through out the winter. This was a new form of "gale unhinging" to Dr. Slonaker which ho and his family appreciate and value because of the hearty goodwill and good fellowship, as woll as the worth ol the gilt. Mr. and Mis. Slonaker feel highly complimented and very grateful. PERSONAL. Misses Llz.le and Delva Randall spent Friday in Franklin, Mrs. James Haslet was a visitor In Oil City the last of the week. Attorney A.

Tbe Annual Institute of the teachers of Forest County was held In Marienvllle, Pa., last week, and was the most success' ful ever held in tbe county. Supt. D. W Morrison spared no time or expense In securing tho best talent for day instruct ors and blgh class attractions for the eve ning entertainments. He showed bis confidence in bis teachers by dispensing witb the time tickets. That this was ap predated was very clearly shown by the regular attendance of the teachers and their intenso interest during all tbe sea s ions. Tbe day instructors were Dr. J, George Becht, Miss Cora M, Hamilton, Dr. George P. Bible and Prof. A. J Mooney, Dr, Becht'a first address was on tbe subject of "Live Teachers and Living Teaching." A fter a description and con treating the dead teacher with tbe live and living teacher, tbe speaker discussed Davidson's principle that every rational scheme of eduction is determined by an aim or ideal more or less consciously set up. Illustrations from practical work were given to show bow In the lowest forms of school activity this principle ob tains. To keep alive It is necessary for the teacher, first, to make daily prepara tlon of what be is to teach, and secondly, to read or study some matter aside from tbe daily work, in order that be may not narrow too much. In the second and third periods "Rational Discipline" was discussed. A contrast was given betweeu ancient and modern methods. The old 8' stem meant repression and blind obe dience. That Ideal grew not out of the needs of the child but was rather a relig ious conviction than an educational one. Play is an Important element in a child's life and should be directed, not repressed. The critical time of discipline is during the period of adolescence. At this time the body grows so rapidly and we are apt to misunderstand theattitudeoftbechild. The teacher should be sympathetic and keep in mind this fact: That the imme diate motive of discipline is order, but that tbe highest motive is to develop char acter. "Habit in Education" was dis cussed, followed by a discussion of "Tbe Study of Geographical Names." Many traditional theories and legends were given to show what history and tradition may be found In a geographical name. In a "A Page of Pennsylvania History," he showed the magnitude of Pennsylva nia's educational system, tbe difficulties encountered in establishing it, and our duty as teachers and school officers to support i's Influence. A high tribute was paid to Tbaddeus Stevens, the great com moner, whose speech in the legislature saved the public free school system. The closing address was a general resume of tbe week's work. Tbe speaker discussed, ai a matter of local interest, tbe fiee scholarships available for Forest county pupils at tbe Clarion Normal School. He spoke of the generous benefaction and dwelt particularly upon tbe lesson that it Boryes. Tbe donor, unwilling to have bis identity disclosed, bad furnished an ex ample of true giving. In conclusion, tbe teachers were urged to consecrate them selves to their work and to magnify tbe profession of which they are a part. He expressed the opinion that tbe institute was oue of the very best be had ever at tended and congratulated the Superin tendent and tbe teachers ou the success ful outlook for the schools ot the county. Miss Hamilton in her talk on tbe "Pur poses of the Primary School," gave as its purpose to make the pupils interpreters of life. Only a small fractiou of what a child learns Is learned at school and then only by very unnatural methods. The natural method Is by observation and the asking of questions on the part of the pupil. When a child comes to school he has a vocabulary of from 600 to 800 words. It is the teacher's work to get tbe child to recognize these words in a new form that Is change the learning through hearing to learning through seeing. En large this until it becomes a working vo cabulary. In her talk on Primary Read ing she said the power of imaging is an important factor and must be taught in the primary school. The teacher must not forget that tbe pupil has rights and that it is the teacher's business to furnish tbe rigbt material for their proper growth. Story telling is the teacher's ally in teach ing. As tbe aim In teaching Primary Lauguage she said, "Teach the child an effective use of the English language." The aim of the teacher is to prevent mis takes In language instead of correcting them. In ber talk on Number Study in Primary Grades, Miss Hamilton said that too much time is spent on figures, too little on real thought. In her talk ou Seat Work she said that very little study can be done below the fifth prade. The child must be given seat work that will result in growth and practical livable pro ducts. Tbe child must be taught to be a producer rather than a consumer. Dr. Bible, In his first talk, spoke on tho oral expression ot Literature and Ad vanced Reading. There are many chil dren who are often more easily interested in a selection or an author by hearing the teachor give a correct aud pleasing ren dition of a selection than from the purely literary analysis. Tbe pupil should have a good example in tbe teacher. For this reason tbe teachers should practice oral reading and frequently read to their pu pils. Expression is tbe most oll'ectlve way of giving out Bentiment and our best powers of oral expression should be cul tivated. He gave a few illustrations in the way of recitations. There are two important periods lu a child's life when it needs tbe help of a good teacher, first, when learning to read, or learning the mechanical part, and then the drill period in the Fifth Reader. In his talk on tbe Cultivation of Memory, Dr. Bible gave the kinds of memory as visual, auditory, verbal and logical. Memory, like any other faculty, is strengthened by 1. Use; Interest; 8. Attention; 4. Association, Proper outlining, which appeals to the BeiiHO of sight, is valuable to help the child to retain, recall, and reproduce for mer experiences in the mind. Outlines illustrating this point were given. Oilier interesting and practical talks wero given by him on Nature Study "The Cocoon, the Buttorlly and Moth," and Fads and Extremes iu Education. Tbe music which was in charge of Prof, A. J. Mooney, of Ridgway, did much to enliven the day sessions. KVKNINO) KNTRKTA1NM KNTS. Monday evening Dr. Geo. P. Bible gave a lecture on "Life and Opportunity." This lecture, which abounded In fun and humor, set forth high Ideals of life, which Ideals eyery one can attain If he Is quick to seize every opportunity. Tuesday evening, "Story Telling" by Miss Cora M. Hamilton. Tbe speaker very easily proved that stories well told form an important part in education. Wednesday evening, Pitt Parker, witb bis Cartoons, captivated bis audience and held it spell-bound for two bours. He showed himself master of tbe crayon. Thursday evening tbe Lyrio Glee Club, assisted by Mary Agnes Doyle, gave a high class entertainment which ranks it as one of tbe best musical companies of the season. RESOLUTIONS.

Tbe Pittsburg Dispatch of Tuesday, October 31, contained the following ac count of a tragedy that happened near McDonald, Pa., the previous day: " 'I am going to do it now, uncle!' cried Mrs, Hannah Gathers, aged 29, wife of Walter Gathers, a miner of Burgetts- town, as she rushed past her uncle, John Bradley, at Bulger station on the Pan handle railroad and threw herself to In stant death under the wheels of a rapidly moving train yesterday. The act was committed so quickly that neither the uncle nor bis son, James, could interfere. Mrs. Gathers had beon separated from her husband for the last few years, and the domestio trouble bad preyed upon her mind uutil she had become morose, and is said to have several limes threatened to take ber life. She bad beon visiting her uncle at Bulger station for some time, The railroad passes dlreolly In front of the bouse, and while the family were pre paring the evening meal the whistle of the approaching train was hoard. In an instant Mrs. Gathers darted out tbe door to ber tragio death, James Bradley, the cousin, as he saw her start cried out: 'There father, she has done it.' The re mains were taken to an undertaker at McDonald. Mrs, Gathers leaves one child." Another account states that her head was crushed but that her body was not tnanglod. The husband, Walter Gathers, and the young son, have for some time past been with relatives in this vicinity, where be was reared to mauhood. The wife was not known-bore by many of our people.
