The teachers' institute grows in inter- est each day. Every minnte ol the tirat; - occnpied in the three sessions held yes terday in Musio ball and the high school building was a goideu minute Inr tbe teachers and educators and parents who were gathered. Eager ears took in tbe words of wisdom which fell from the Hob of tbe learned speakers, and hearts and minds were bettered and enlight ened by them. The attendance on tbe meetings in ~ Musio ball was increased over tbat of the first day. The main floor of Music hall waa filled full at the morning ses sion and the galleries held a goodly crowd of high school and normal school . pupils aud parents, while Professor Dressier told of the interesting things in child Btudy, aud while Prof. Lewis Swift , told of the marvelous things in endless space. To the teachers the sectional meetings . and tbe round tables as the afternoon session in the high sohcol building are not tbe least in interest, though the general public is not so deeply interest ed. The work is calonlated to be ol (rest good in the school year to come, , and the close companionship engendered * among the teachers of the city will be , "hly productive in its tendency to I arted work. ,i Again in thß evaning Music hall was filled. Prof, John Dickinson delivered an able address and one that took a firm hold upon the teauhers. Hia sub ject waa: What the People Expect of v Publio Schools in the Teaching of »• Ethics. Prof. Charles A. Koyes ol Throop , polytechnic university spoke on the 'snbject of Education Damanded by tbe - Day. His was a scholarly, polished effort filled with ideas np to date, aud of value to every teacher present. MORNING MEETING. i J*rof. Orrnnlor on Child Study nnd How I * Do Wb Know. V Prof. F, B. Dreßsler,of the state normal school of this city, who is making what might he termed a study of child study, gav3 a very able aud eloquent adilre-n «t Iho morning session of the institute en this popular subject. l'rof. Dreisler is a very pleaßing speaker, and had all through his tala Ihe clobeit e'.tention. "Are we looking ior an opportunity for methodo that will help us to guide our utile ones? we will find it in tbo Child. Itself," said l'rof. Dreoater. 'Tencbeis do uot get rieur enough to the child's bodily life. Teachers forget that the child's chief delight is physical exercise. We need to he taught by an cient Athens until wo learu the art ol conducting physical aud mental exer cise. "The great body of parents are yet nninierented in tho health ol their chil dren. Knowledge it ol vast importance, bnt it is insignificant compared to good health. Tho pessimists ol the world bave all been oi nr.yound body. "The sensuality and utter disregard of health of tha French has given birth to hundreds of vile hooks, (ieorge McDon ald waa right whan ho aaid : 'What we need in toll life ie more life.' rCxcesses are the forerunner*? of disbelief and ikepticiom. (termauy has just awak ened to the fact thut she was putting out the eyes of her pupils. America is breeding p. new form of nervous disease by the rushing methods of business life ■nd school life The word school was derived from a word meaning leisure. "it's do not gi-t ( loso enough to tbe minds of the children. We demand too much cuituiu and learning Irom them. One of the greatest hillleultiea in the world is to transfer the thoughts of one mind to another. •'Children tu.uk slowly ; we talk too fast for them. We frequently ao con fuse the child ttiat it is impossible for it to think. Prof. Jartro has shown with his autograph that even if we think of a poniiuium, we causa all onr muscles to vibrate with tbe pendulum. This is a scientific truatmeut on adnlts of wbat may be observed by tbe teacher with the children every day. "Order is not mechanical stiffness. It is a difficult thing for tie to treat the child as a child. We expect the child to enjoy life from our standpoint, a standpoint it has taken us years to at tain. "If parents only knew their obildren and truly loved them, a great bnrden wonld fall from the teacher's ohonl ders. "Ths development of tbe muscular control of children baa been carefully studied and furnish us with a founda tion ior ideas on mental development. "Dr. Warner says movements are the only sign of brain activity in the ohild. This is true. I have known obildren to be punißbed severely because they were near-sighted, and neither tbe teacher nor the child was aware of it. "Without a knowledge of the thoughts of the child's mind, under cer tain circumstances, we cannot hope to govern the child aright. Many of the best methods for tbe government uf children will be suggested by the cbild itself to tbe observant teacher. "There are thousands of teachers and parents today making notes of tbe ac tion of the child-mind, and we may ex pos' something grand from thi* question ere long. I know that there ie danger i f making child-study a lad. It is only a lad with those who undortake the work simply because it is popular, and theßß are only studying themselves and not tbe child. "We have a higher aim than tbe making of science in child study. The immortal lives of these little ones are in our bands. "I want to pnt a plain question to you, and you must answer it out of your heart of hearts. Can you read the Inner most thoughts of the cbild tbat is in our keeping? It oan never beoome a fault for tbe teacber to study the inner most lile of tbe child intrusted to her keeping. " 'The host work of the republio is to save the children,' we can say with President Jordan, and we can add that the safety of the republio ia in the sav ing of tbe obildren. "Teaching is easy when it is in accord witb nature; so let me say onoe again, study your obildren, that yon may teaoh them and love them that you may love them." HOW DO WS KNOW? The sscond address of the evening was a very able ons and one full of in struction, l'rof. Lewis H. Swift of the Mt. Lows observatory, one of the groat astronomers of the day, delivered it. He hid his snbjeot under ths interroga tion, How Do We Know? and told how an astronomer works. "Ths astronom*' goes to his delight- Second Day of the Teachers' Institute.

"Tbe earth curves eight inches in a mile. When we want to measure the distance around the e.trth we figure from thia curve.

After tha address the anlienoe sent written queßtiona to Professor Swift, who answered them promptly and in nil cases satisfactorily. Question —What do yon think the spots on ths aun am?

THE ROUND TABLES. Amount of Kxp-nrimxittwl tiolnnoe Re quired In the l.inmr Gradoi. The teachers' round tables and tbo sectional grade meetings at the high school building occupied the time of the institute all the afternoon. The round tables were condnoted by Prof. W. H. Housh, and the subject chosen was Science, The two divisions of the subject were made on tbe lines ot tbe "amount of experimental science work that can and ought to be done in tbe primary and grammar grades," and the "correlation of tbe several branches of the prescribed course of study." The sectional grade meetings were under tbe direction of tbe following teachers: First grads—Miss Olara Brusre, Miss i'esdie Kiohardson. Second grads—Miss Janet M. Hen derson. Miss Agnes Elliott.

EVENING ADDRESSES. The Teaching of Ktbtci and IZducational Di-iu.ntl. of the Hay. The largest audience which the insti tute has yet attracted was gathered in Music hall last night to listen to ad dresses by Pro. John Dickinsoo and President 0. H. Keyes. Professor Dickinson spoke on What the People Expect ol the I'ublic Schools in the Teaching of Ethics. "Tbe subject assigned ma is one of such transcendent importance," said Professor Dickinson, "t at I have al lowed myself to b» literally called out of a sick bed to speak on tbe teachings of ethics tonight. "The various oolleges and schools un dar the direction of the churches of ail denominations in the immediate vicinity of Los Angeles make it apparent that the time is close when the schools and the patrons of tbe schools must dauiand of the stats that Hod be recognized in the common schools of the country. "The people do not exoect iv the pub lie schools of this country that we shall teach them much abont God, but I thing the people will deman l, sooner Ol later, tbat the schools shall recognize tbat there ie a word like right outmeiß; make it shorter, call it right; simpler atill, ought. Tbere ia a domain of morals, and it strikes at the root of human organization. 'There was a time whan every man was for himself. The plaa prevailed tbat he should take who hid tha power, Bye and hye Booiety broadened and deepened aud Boiteued, and eonae, 40 years ago. right in tun cannon's mouth, civilization settled the quostion o! the equal claim o! your fellow men. "We must have a court of last appeal, a place to prove ourselves as we go along. In tbe moral world, in the social world, it is the same, The question of authority comes np. "I am incliued to think that the rea son wa have no Bible in tbe public school is this: 1 doo't want your religion taught to my child; you don't want my religion taught to your child. The time will come in the < i . ■: atively near future when the Bible worship shall hava passed away anil it shall cease to be regarded as an infallible book. "The teacher oi ethics and the public have a rigbt to expect that the ucuools will come to see this in good time," PROP, EEYKS' ADDimi-8. "I had thought to speak wholly upon the subject of industrial or manual training," Baid l'rof. Keyes, "but tha loarned gentleman who has preceded me has turned my mind to the subject of ethics and 1 shall speak more upon the relation of ethical tuachiugs to in dustrial education. "Tne religion which can hope to be eternal must confine itseii to graud do ing, not in dogma. Whatever shall spread the reign of peace on earth shall live in ths hearts ot men. lam here, not to till an hour on this programme, bnt because I think I bave a mission to perform, to spread the gospel of indus trial eduoation. "Industrial education includes both manual training and technical instruc tion. This does not exclude the work in mathematics or any of the lines pur sued in our common schools. "By manual training I mean the training of the band and eye to da tho bidding of the mind correctly. Its aim is the subordination of everything else to tbe power of the will. "The teachers in such a school should be artists in one thing, and that is teaching. "ihe muscular movements of the hands are controlled at lirst by the brain, afterwards by the spinal cord. The manual traiuing stops when the brain ceases to control the action. "Manual traiuing has already intro-. duced itself into tho kiudergurtens. It is working its way into the primary and grammar grades. It has already begun to be felt in coJlege work. "Loi Angeles ought lo be tho educa tional center—the educational capitol of California, despite its geographical loca tion. "I believe in bodily culture. Almost all of tbe present high school is now iv lavor of bodily destruction. I believe thut it ia desirable to incorporate man ual training iv tbe high schools, be cause it will attract many hoys who go out of the grammar schools ialo ihu varied walks oi life witnout the high school course. A majority leave the grammar schools witb an idea that what follows is of no t,ractical use." The address ot President iveyeß was a long one and a strong appeal for industrial training in the high schools. Today Prof. Jobn Dickinson will speak again in Music hall iv the morning on Light and Vision. Principal E. E. Gates of the hie.li ecbool will deliver an address in the morning on The School Cbaracter and Ethics. The usual exercises will be held in the high School building in the aiter noon, aud iv tbe evening in Music hall. Dr. F. W. Steddom will tell what the people expect of public scboils in pro visions for the health of children, aud President David Starr Jordau of Stan ford university will address the insti tute. AN INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL.

Hooker, Max Meyberg, Albert M. Stephens and James C. Reyes, wbo shall have power to fill vacancies in their own number. Immediately upon ths return of tbe superintendent from the east, this com mittee of five shall meet and elact 20 persons, who |with themselves shall constitute tha committee ol 25. Tbis committee ol 25, working with ths superiutendents of ths schools, shall immediately prepare a plan of action covering all tha interests involved, and carefully organize for determined and sacosastui Inauguration oi tbs work, • The committee ot five shall have power to till vacancies in tbs committee of 25, At tha right time the committee of 26 shall appoint 75 other citizens, to constitute, with them selves, the committee of 100, ior what ever organization and co-operation may De nece vary in the case. Vacancies in the committee of 100 shall be filled by tbo committee of 25 No pirs.,o will be allowed to accept a place on any committee without agree ment to ardently support thspurposes of this organization. If, for any reason, there should ap pear ob tacles iv uncountable hy tha action nl the committee ol 100, then eitner the nommittee ol 25 or the com mittee of 100 shall call a mass meeting of ihe cit-z ma, and nothing shall ba allowed to stay the irresistible powir of this organization, until there is effect ive establishment oi Industrial educa tion in all the Bcbools of our city. All these committees snail work in conjunction with tha board of educa tion, lhe purpose of this committee plan is to at once bring to the board of education the powerful support of a thoroughly organized city. We approve the action of the c;*-•■■ council in appropriating $300,000 for the building of lower grade schools, anil | nothing in the organ sation of theje va | rionß committees shall he allowed to I oppose such general interest. NEW SCHOOL METHODS. TUB SYSTEM OK IN'IMVIHUAIi AD VANCEMENT. Ksoti Pupil t» Pro£r»ss at .Ho Spred It st Ballad to tht InnvHlnal aud Not the sjiass. A new syststn of advancement in the public schools of the city bus bsen in augurate! and put iv operation by Superintendent Search. Ia a sp ,'cial pamphlet issued to the tea:hers yester day, an explanation ol the uew plan ap pears, as follows: "Opportunity for md vldual advance ment practically begins February 1!, 1805 Toll plan means that more time shall ho spent iv actual work and less in pilling daily teals; t hat reliance for tha doing ol work ie placed upon brighl, ftaib, vigorous exaroi -f during the regu lar school hours, without requirement for preparation ol teuhnic.il lessons at home; th-.it time is to he econom'zed and in ire work accomplished by re moval of deal time during the day. It means also that each pupil slisll pro greos at the npeed best for him, without limitation because somebody else il brighter or Blown;-; that the annual or eemi annual promotions shall give place to daily advancement; and, in fact, that there shall he uo nou-ornmotinn or repe tition of (trade work. E j .ch pupil, nnder the toAcher'ti diiectiun and inspiration, shall have opportnn.ty tor all be can do well, without over tension or false incentive. The work will still be planned hy tne usual 12 grades, bnt the school will lose light oi the ye«r limit. Any pQptl of onpurior ability may complete tliovrork in ohorter time, and the one of slow performance will not be required to repeat identically tho work of tbe past. In brief, each pupil mnat now do his own work nnd make advancement at bis own speed; but tbere will be no requirement for outsido Study, becauso tbe work of the schools can be done without anch doinand. The school will expect satisfactory work and ench performance muntbe thorough and basic before the worker can pais on. The entire plau will bring better mo tive, more ond hetter work, economy of time, g.eator encouragement and belter health. "For details of working plan high school students are reierred to Manual Three, which will he issued during the week." In his directioui to the teachers Prof. Search says: "Tho school asks nothing more ol a student than that bis work should be satisfactory. Until a certain piece uf work is satisfactory tbe student should never be allowed to pans to a succeed ing. As pupils may uot have had op» portunlty lor individual qualification, do not he over technical in drawiug the line in the rir.-t report." A SVORY OF WANT. Sirs. Hams' Blatajstoat 10 tha District dttorn-y Ycstordi.y. A shameful story of neglect was brought tv tho attention of the district attorney and the Associated Charities yenterday, which will likely lead to au arrest today. J. P. F. Burns, a tinisher on cament sidewalks, who oarna |8.59 par day when employed for others, and much more wnen he oares to contract personally lor jobs, is the father of nine children, the oldest ol whom is 15 years and tha youngest only 10 months. Mrs. Burns, a very respuctaole lady, had an opera tion performed for cancer ou the breast two mou'hs ago, and, as she claims, for lack of proper ears aud suitable medi cine, the dread outgrowth is returning. These 10 unfortunate people are living iv four email rooms, devoid of furniture, at 111)7 tt eat Eighteenth etrent. There ie hut one ued ior them all, uo adequate covering, and in the night time their bodies shiver with cold. The roof is a eieve; when it rains the rooms are swamped aad utterly unfit to live in. And with all this utter discomfort these lender children and their siok mother are starving day after day, dependent upon the charity of their neighbors, which is not always avail able. On Wednesday none of them had anything to eat, and in despair Mrs. Burnß yesterday appealed to the author ities for muoh needad relief. Mrs. Burns stated tbat ber husband rarely was at home and did not provide her with the necessaries of life. The most pressing needs ot tbo family were relieved yeaterday by tne Asso ciated Charities, and District Attorney Donneli will probaoly loot to Mr. Burns' personal comforts by means of a war rant for bis arrest. Mre. Burns and her large family are deserving of tbe aid and kindness of the charitably minded, and any contributions left for them at the Associated Charities will be thank fully acknowledged by tha association. Mrs. Emily Thorne, who resides as Toledo, Washington, says she has uevet been able to procure any medicine for rheumatism that relieves the pain er quickly and effectually as Chamberlain'o Pain Balm and that she has also used it for lame back with success.
