Thursday, the fourth day of the Teachers’
Institute, opened with a large attendance.
The exercises began with singing by the
teachers and prayer by Rev. J. P. Stump,
of the M. E. Church,South. Prof. Hodges
delivered a long lecture on “Current His
tory” and “History of Africa.” Rev. Dr.
C. N. Campbell, principal of John Stephen
son Seminary, at this place, appeared before
the institute and asked the co-operation of
teachers in educational work, and stated he
would aid in the common cause of educa
tion. Miss Laura C. Strider, who has been
engaged iu missionary work in Japan aud
also in Mexico, read an interesting paper on
“Froevel’s Method of Teaching and the
Kindergarten System.” During the after
noon session Prof. Hodges lectured on Lan
guage and School Government.
The last day’s session of the Teachers’
Institute opened with vocal music by the
teachers and prayer by Rev. J. W. longue,
of the M. E. Church, South. Prof. Hodges
began with a lecture on psychology and
then discussed the text book law of West
Virginia, which regulates the books to be
used in the public schools, the price to be
paid, and establishes depositories for same
in each county. In the afternoon session
Prof. Hodges delivered an impressive ad
dress on the moral training pupils should
receive from teachers under the text, “1 rain
up a child in the way he should go.” The
committee on resolution*, consisting of E.
U. Johnson, George P. Shirley and E. J.
Williams, reported several resolutions,
among which was a resolution favoring a
statute to furnish text-books free to pupils
of the public schools. This resolution was
strongly advocated by the committee, but
met with opposition. Prof. Wright Denny,
! of the Charles Town graded school, led the
j opposition to the resolution ou behalf of
: the taxpayers. The resolution was adopted
i by a vote of 2S to 21—not one-half ot the
! members of the institute voting. Miss Laura
! C. Strider then made a vigorous speech in
opposition, and a motion to reconsider was
adopted and the resolution defeated by a
a large majority.
The following are the resolutions adopted:
1 Resolved, 1st, That we again most earnestly
’ call the attention of the Legislature of West
Virginia to the injustice and cruelty of that
section of our school law which requires teach
ers to attend upon institute work at a time
when teachers arc in the midst of their sum
mer vacation, when tbe atmosphere is most
depressing and least auspicious for mental cul
ture; and that we petition the Legislature
to amend said section so that said institute
work can be accomplished within the time of
actual school employment.
2nd, That in the death of our brother-teach
er and friend. J. R. Barnhouse, wc recognize
the hand of God and bow in meek submission
to His will.
3rd. That we londor hie feauily our nineoro
sympathy and tl.at God will give them grace
to humbly submit to His divine visitation.
4th, That a vote of thanks be tendered Rev.
A A. P. Neel, our county superintendent for
his general kindness and efficient management
of the present session of institute.
5th. That a vote of thanks be tendered Col.
Hodges for the magnificent manner in which
he has conducted the institute work, and trust
that in the future he may find it convenient to
often viait our county.
6th. That a vote of thanks be tendered the
ministers of Charles Town for their kind at
tendance and services during the session of the
institute. %
7th, That a vote of thanks be tendered Mrs.
J. C. Wiltshire for use of organ during institute.
8th, That a vote of thanks he tendered the
county officers for use of court-house for in
stitute purposes.

Mrs. Rhodie Noah, of this place, was ta
ken in the uight with cramping pains and
the next day diarrhoea set in. She took
half a bottle of blackberry cordial but got
no reliaf. She then sent to me to see if I
had anything that would help her. 1 sent
her a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Choi
era and Diarrhoea Remedy and the first dose
relieved her. Another of our neighbors had
been sick for about a week and had tried
diffe-ient remedies for diarrhoea but kept
getting worse. I sent him this same reme
dy. Only four doses of it were required to
cure him! He says he owes his recovery to
this wonderful remedy.—Mrs. Mary Silbev,

Mr. John J. Abell died in Martinsburg
last Wednesday at the home of his niece,

i most patient, sufferer. She never murmur
ed at her lot, but bore her afflictions with
Chrisliau fortitude and resignation. She
uuited with the Methodist Church when but
’ eleven years old. and remained a consistent
j member. Her end was peace.—Sh'p. Rtg.
