Of the Marshall County Teachers'
SEVERAL BRANCHES DISCUSSED.
ToucIjops Tuke Fort in the Instruction?Some
of tlio Points They DlfIbrod
For the First-Time.
The second day of the Marshall county

yesterday morning, with 114 teachers
present, 53 gentlemen and 56 ladies.

tlie excellent choir, and Hov. H. Wilson,
ot Louisville, Ky., led in prayer, and
read ?omo selections from the Bible.
Mr. Wilson is totally blind, and stated
that when a boy lie lost his sight
through the carelessness and drunkenness
ot ft physician, and thut for nineteen
years hu had never seen God's sun
light. He explained tho print of thfl
Itlble from which ho read, and tho
dlfl'erent branches of learning taught in
schools for tho blind, including ninny of
the higher sciences and arts. The blind
are taught arithmetic, algebra, chemistry,
etc., thoroughly. As a rule, at the
college he attended, five problems in
arithmetic were given tho student, and
if ho failed in a singlo ono, he was
placed back in tho gnule below. After
school hours, which ended at 2:30 p. in.,
they were placed in tho broom shop,
whore they learned to make brooms.
They are also taught to crochet and do
fnncv bead work. The instruction to

amounting to $10 02 was taken
up for Mr. Wilton to aid him aloof; with
hits college course.
Instructor I>. T. Williams opened tho
subject of arithmetic. Hb gave nn exposition
of numbers, explaining tho ilitlerent
methods of expressing uhd reading
A TKtrLE DI8CCS3KD.
Ono suggestion of the itjatnictor elicited
some discussion, llo had nn tho
board the number 7,405, and asked to
have it read. It was read "seven thousund
four hundred and sixty-five." He
said that some of the best later authors
omit the ami, and give it "seven thousand
four hundred sixty-five," and that
he was inclined tondopt that method of
reading numbers. He further said that
it is the practice of many of the most
noted speakers, ministers and lawyers.
The majority of the teachers preferred
the old method.
The next topic, "Orthography," was
under tho instruction of .Mr. T. J. Parsons.
Mr. Parsons gave a thorough and
technical class drill in the elementary
sounds. Some ot the tcnchors found it
ditiicult to give tho proper sounds,
though they know when they were correctly
Grammar was the next on the programme.
instruction on tho subject was given
by Mr. J. T. King, who confined himsolf
to tho infinitive used ad a noun. Sentences
embracing infinitives were written
on the board, and the teachers requested
to puree tho words. ?Some
parsed according to one authority and
some another. Mr. IIolbrook's work
on grammar was criticised by some,
and sustained by others. Exception
was takon to Mr. Ilolbrook where ho
says in his work that the sentence, "It
is me," is proper. It was thought by
some that the nominative, I, should be
used, and not the objective, me. This
was given as one of the errors in his
was the only tonic at the afternoon session.
This subject was assigned to Mr.
E. Bonar. Mr. Uonar had an outline of
the Constitution of the United States
written upon the board, and proceeded
to explain the different branches of tho
government, and to ask questions concerning
A lively discussion was brought out
? *1 ?1 ? ?1
on iiiu ijiuuuv ijucauuu, ujiu uiu tiuwiuuiu
banking systom. Tlio argument becuuio
so spirited that Sir. Bonar refused to
hear further discussion of those particular
questions. Mr. Chaso wlsliod to appeal
to the chair; but Mr. llonar woufd
not permit him to do so.
In discussing the legislative branch
of the national government, Mr. Bonar
asked if a man, resident in another
JStato, were eligibio to bo elected as
Senator for this State. Several teachers
answered in unison that they could do
that in Ohio, hut not in West Virginia. ,
It was finally decided, however, that
under the constitution one to be eligible
to tho Senate must bo " resident ot
the Stato for which ho is elected.
Tho next topic, "Bookkooping," was
assigned to Mr. Itobort Kiggs, who at
onco went into his subject in a practical
way. Tho hoard was constantly
used to explain this branch of study.
This being a now study in tho schools
of this State, and one in which the
teachers are to be examined this year
for the first time, closo attention was
paid to the instructions.

Thu subject of reading was under tho '
instruction of Mr. lloburt liiggs. This
is a subject usually hard to interest an
institute in, but Mr. liigjre succeeded in
creating a lively interest in it yesterdoy. i
His treatment of the subject will be oven
more interesting to-day.
Tho topic of school government for
yesterday was assigned to Mr. Joiner, '
the only colored teacher present lie
handled the subject in a way that showed
him to be a proficient teacher.
The session closed with an hour's talk '

What we offer this week are goods of an "immediate need" character,
entirely seasonable and witliall indispensable. They may
have met your eye at other places, but never has it rested on them at
our prices, which are always the lowest and which will, this week, be
on these "immediate need" goods lower than ever. We have Ice Chests
at $6; we have them, in fact, at any price. Your attention, however,
we would have especially directed to our large Solid Ash Ice Chests,
guaranteed charcoal filled, for $g, worth gi2. We cannot stop to talk
about their worth j it's entirely foreign to our present considerations of
how many of these goods |we have and how long it will take to dispose
of them. We have adopted the most expeditious plan by reducing prices.
This same reduction applies to our entire line of Ice Chests and Refrigerators.
In warm weather needfuls we offer four-gallon Water Cooler*,
