debate in this city in the month ot Oc
tober. We know whereof we speak
when we say that onr people generally
would much prefer that they hold their
discussion elsewhere. All our relig
ious denominations are now moving
amicably along, doing their respective
works peaceably and quietly. The ten
dency ot the proposed debate would be to
raise acrimonious discussions between
friends and neighbors, without chang
ing a single person from his previous
belief or adding a single convert to the
cause of Christ.' Snch has ever been
the result of such debates; and with
this knowledge before us we earnestly
urge, in bebalt of the good people of
this city, that theso disputants will
either abandon their discussion or
hold It in some other place, where they
will receive a heartier welcome than
they will here.

Prograaasc of Concluding Exercises.
In our last issue we gave the pro
ceedings of the Teachers' Institute up
to Wednesday noon. The following
are the concluding exercises:
Wednesday: afteuxoox august 22.
Afternoon session atthe usual time.
Prof. O. C Hill calledtho Institute to
order and nnnouncedthat in the
absence of Prot. Drake, whose hour
it was, Snpt. Kelscv would take charge
of the class in Grammar.
At the call of the Professor the teach
ers very generally responded by tak
ing their places at the black boards.
The" verb" was made the first
subject of discussion and handled by
'the Institute in a very masterly man
ner. The teachers present showed
themselves fully competent to teach
this very perplexing subject. Several
tough knots in the shape of difficult
sentences were given them to diagram
and analyze,and a very interesting dis
cussion ensued on the different meth
ods for this work, In which nearly all
the members took part.
After an intermission Prof. Hill re
tired to the recitation room with the
class in Phj-slology. and proceeded to
discuss the "bono business." Wc nev
er before realized howwonderfully and
fearfully we arc made. From the
perfectly familiar manner in which the
Professor and his class bandied the jaw
breaking, three cornered latin names,
wc concluded they knew about all there
is to know about the "boue business."
While this class was reciting, Mr.
Parker ot Nodaway, had charge of the
drill on penmanship, in the class room.
Several more of the teachers arrived
to-day and took part in the exercises,
as follows :
Chas. Moses, Forest City.
J. M. FInley, Oregon.
S. P. Folts, Hastings, Neb.
Laura Custer, Whig Valley.
Rosa Boyd, Whig Valley.
WEUXESDAT EVE. AUGUST 22.
About dusk the teachers' bell an
nounced that the promised Rcnnion
was at hand, and taking up onr line of
march we were soon one of the large
crowd that has for several years past
enjoyed theso very sociable occasions
with the teachers ot old Holt.
Prof. Alkb-e, the master of ceremon
ies, announced that by reason of the
failure to procure an organ there
would be be no vocal music; but the
Oregon String Band was on time and
discoursed excellent music for the
occasion. This band is deserving of

order and placed Prof. Drake In charge
who called out the class In Grammar.
The Professor presented a system
of parsing which he uses in the Rock
Port school. It was highly commend
ed by nearly nil tho teachers present.
Piof. IL T. Alkiro gave his method
but in a style so vague as not to be un
derstood. Mr. Carroll coincided with
the views of Prof. Drake. Mr. Bond
would not iiseja text book on the subject
until the pupil had mastered the differ
ent parts of speech; he would then
place a work on langnago in their
hands. Prof. Hill closed the discus
sion. After a short recess Snpt. Kel
sey took charge of the class in penman
ship. Only a small number of the teachers
responded, which rather detracted
from the interest that should have been
sfio"gi. Penmanship Is too mnch neg
lected In our public schools, and teach
ers sbould not miss any opportunity to
fit themselves for teaching this very

D. appeared to bo "on their muscle."
FRIP AT MORNING, AUGUST 24.

Institute by reading an appropriate se

attendance this morning was small. It

Prof. Drake proposed that the tlmo be

All being agreed, Prof. Parker led off;
he proposed to give his pupils work
enough to occupy all their time; he
begins organizing as soon as he Is
employed, by learning. -what studies
are pursued in the school and what
text books aro used, when and how

siderable profit realized.
The Institute was, in more respects
thau one, a success. Sup't Kelsey
and Prof. Hill deserve great credit for
the masterly manner in which
they performed their duties.
HlDts to Fruit Growers.
Holt county Is essentially the fruit
growing region of the northwest. Ev
erything, therefore, which bears on
this subject Is of Interest to a large
class ot our readers.
A few days ago we had a conversa
tion with Mr. Goo. P. Luckhardt, the
Oregon nursreyman, who gave us;a
numberof valuable hints which we
consider of sufficient Importance to put
ought to do alHu his power to stop the
ravages of insects, which nre alarming
ly on the increase. This can be, done
(1st) by protecting birds of all kinds,
even Jay birds Included; (2d) by fenc
ing the orchards" and driving lu hogs,
especially sows with, pigs, in order to
cat up the fallen frnlt. Theso will do
no harm to the hogs, but will be or
great advantage by giving a change of
diet, which Is -by many considered a
preventive of the so-called hog cholera.
Besides, the manure ot the bogs, com
bined with tho fallen leaves, gives
back to tho trees the nourishment
which is necessary to support a healthy
growth. After the leaves have drop
ped, every orchnrdist ought to go and
examine his trees, nnd wherever he
finds a little bunch of leaves curled up
and seemingly suspended by a silken
throad, take it off and throw it In the
fire. These arc really the nests in
which the canker worm Is hidden.
All trimming of trees, to produce a
vigorous growth.onght to be performed
late In the fall or during mild weather
In the winter; but if you want the trees
to como Into bearing, or it larger trees
are too vigorous, then trim In the
month of June. But under all circum
stances try to preserve the larger limbs,
cutting off only the smaller cross ones.
Never uso an axe, but take a good saw
or knife or pruning shares, so as to
make a smootho cut. Do not cut too
close to the stem, but Icave no slump
standing. Tho cnt should not be larg
er than the sizo of the limb cut away.

THAT HOUND CITT DEBATE.
Oregon, Mo.. Aug. 29. 1877.
Editor Sentinel: In reference to
that Mound City .debate, the proposi
tions agreed upon by Elders Berry nnd
Canghlan were as follows:
1st Immersion in water in the name
of tho Father, Son and Holy Spirit.of a
penitent believer, is Scripture Bap
tism. 2d Immersion in the name of the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit in water,
of a penitent believer, is a conditon ot
pardon, or for the remission of sins.
Berry affirms :
3d Infant baptism is authorized by
the word of God.
4th Tho Scriptures teach, that faith
in the merits of Christ is the only con
dition of the sinners justification
Wo are authorized to state
that Elder Berry is. ready to
debate, the Tibovc propositions at
Mound City; any time in the mouth of
October; if Canghlan Is ready he has
but to say so.
Wc deem it justice to Elder Berry
that we state the roasons lor his ab
sence at Mound City on the 21st inst.,
which are that the debate upon our
part had been arranged, by irresponsi
ble parties at Mound City, without the
kowledgc or consent of tho officers of
the Church or any of the leading mem
bers ; and also without the knowledge
or consent of any of the preaching
brethren of the County, and at a tlm
when none of us could be present.
When we learned of it, with Elder
Berry's knowledge and consent, we
asked Of Revs. Bassctt and Caughlan
that tho debate be postponed until any
tlmo in October, as teachers Institute,
Circuit'Court &c, which would prevent
preachers,, being present on tho 21st
inst., would be in aes'sion, and Elder
Berry tould be nnablo 'to como any
time between the 20lh .ot Angust and
