branches of study should be taught to the
young, and closed by saying: "Kor tho
enko ot thu child, do not ask us to keep
them shut up in a .school room from ') a. in.
to t p. tn."
Jllsa Mattlc Hyde, of Lawrence, nlso en
tered into a discussion of tho uuestlon, In
which .she advocated the same views us
those ot the ladles who preceded her.
Superintendent Smith, ot Lawrence,
wanted to know how It Is tiosslble for the
kindergarten department to be aildeil to
tho city, or especially tho country, district
schools, where there Is only one room.
He was opposed 10 the plan unless the
kindergarten department and tho llrst prl
mnry could 1 merged Into one. The ill"
cusslon was then diawn between the kin
'lergnrtcn teachers and the city supeiln
tendents. which was closed very nbruptly
bv the call of time by President Hunter.
Professor C. A. ShlNoly, of Atehlon. read
an Interesting paper on "History T ach
ing." His said thnt to try and hinrleilly
1111 the child's mind with dates and facts
was usele.sn and that it would be betttr to
not teach It at all than to crowd a child
In the study of history. He said teacher
should be ;t good historian and should use
great JudgmenOln the selection of subjects
nml method of conducting the recitation.
He nld thnt hlstniy should be tiiught In
every class In public schools. In this way
the pupil would hau n good knowledge of
the history of the nation at the close of
hli schooling. The sublect was nbh- dis
cussed by lllss IMIth ll.unctt. ot Olathc,
K. J. Hoer.shel, ot Ilolton, and William
V.itiorclol, of Sliver Lake. Piofessor
lloenshel said that It a teacher wanted to
study for an examination fur a teacher's
ceitlllcate he should pick up and read some
textbooks with questions on one side and
tho answers on the Other nnd commit
them. lint If the teacher was studying to
heiieilt his own mind he should burn three
fourths ot the textbooks and nlnety-nlne-one-huiidredths
of the other fourth. Ho
claimed that good winks touching on the
vailous subjects of history nro better than
the regular text books. He thought th.it
the teacher should llrst begin teaching the
child hlstniy by telling Htorles and follow
this up by books. -Mr. Vanorsdol said
tljat the Una! lessons In history should lie
taught by means of plctntes followed by
Htoiles. Professor llocnshd did not be
lieve In memorizing dates.
lalltnr McDonald, of the Western School
Journal, onsweied the professor of Ilolton
In reference to casting aside "uinltum In
patvo" books und also In regaul to his
position against the mcmotlzlng of names.
He said that n teacher ought to ue ques
tion books that would give them tho most
Information when uu examination was at
hand. Ho did not blame an teacher for
brushing up his mind, lie also said that
dates should lie memorized, as It was a
disgrace for a person not to know- the date
of the piluclpn! cients In the history of
the United States.
"Length ot tho High School Course and
Number of Studies Pursued: Contrasted
, Hemedlea Suggested," was the subject of
in paiier read by 1'iofei.sui- V. II, Olney, of
iLawtence. He criticised the coiir-u ot
study adopted by any school where thor
, oughiiesH was oMMlooked. He thought at
least tour jcat.s should be tho length of a
high school com so of study
Professor Kammeyer, of this city, In his
discussion of the .subject, said that the
high school coutse was generally adopted
more for the purpose of railroading n.
hcholar to the unlvetslty than to lit him
for everyday life. He thought the coutse
should bo so adapted as to give the gtcat
cst benefit to tho gre.itsst number. In
nlnetj-ilve cases out of 10) the high school
Is the Mulshing school of the pupils and
the piofessor said that thnt schnol'H coutse
of study should bo such that when n pupil
completed It he would ha lilted to take up
almost any business pursuit.
Miss Florence llca&outr, of Leavenworth,
spoke. iur addit'as was extemporaneous
and It was. one of the best delivered yes.
teidny. She favotcd a four yearn" course
and urged teachers to be lliototigh In their
work. She lndoised tho report of the
"committee of ten" In reference to the
high school coutse. Miss, Htlle ilralmm, of
Topcka, ulso nbly discussed this subject.
Afteiiiooii hi H4lon.
Tho afternoon session wits opened by a
papir on "Llteintuto In tho Place of tho
ltiuding Hooks," by Prank P. Smith, of
Luwtence. Ho udvocated the ubolitlou of
readets from cl.ibs work, and utged the
Mibstltutlon of good lltetattiie. In this way
hu said the lessons would not become mo
notonous to tho pupils and they would be
comu tuoto Interested in their study. He
also advocated the using of arithmetic; In
a practical way, not In tho abstract. In
stead of giving a child un example in di
vision whetu tile uumlieiH of the dividend
or divisor nre only given he thought
something should bu ndded to tho mimbers
so that pinctic.il Ideas may bo Ieaiued by
the rhlldreti. Tilts pupor was discussed by
J. II. lllotfelter, uf Atchison; W. M, David
son, of Topcka, und J, M. Ithodcb, of
Supeiintendent II, n. Heath, of Ilolton.

The body of Miss Patsy Clayton, a col

found In the Knvv rivet, near tho Fifth
street btldge, at 10 o'clock voslcrdny morn
ing by Geoige Treeps, of Argentine, who
was In a boat hunting ducks That the
woman had been mutdeted is the thcoty
accepted by the police, as the evl lence is
sttougly favorable to such a supposition
uud It further appeals that the luuider
was a very mysteilous nffnlr.
The body was near the middle of thu
river, though the water was not of suf
ficient depth to wholly conceal It. There
was a bullet hole In the luck part ot the
head, also a wound In th" left temple,
caused by n blow fiom it club. Aiound
the waist of the body a rusty wlte was
found, tu which had (ippaieutly been at
tached a sinker.
Miss Patsy Cl.ivlon, the murdered wom
an, had been lu thu employ ot Dr. 11. C
Gainer, whoe olllce and lesldence are ut
2.r East Ninth ticet, In Kansas City,

net's, ns the family supposed, to visit her
mother and stcptiither, .Mr. and Mr-.. Reb
el t Mclntyie, who live at JUS) Oakland
avenue, Kansas City, Kas. As she did
not return Thursday the doctor went to
the home of her pirents, vcsteidns after
noon, and th"i'e learned of the irngodv.
ller patents had not seen her since Sun
day, at wlili h time she was at home.
As HtHUi as the Under dlsi oioied the
body he untitled the Aigtntlne police, und
Chief Itichaidson, aecoiup uiled bv ruder
taker G. W. Simmons, went to the liver
and took the body to the undci taking
looms of G. vv . Simmons, in Aigintlm
where a post mot tern ixaiuiiiatlo
held bv Ctuoncr Stevens, vesteidav
noon, aided by ,.-,, ml suigeons. The
animation showed that a bullet had en
tered the In- ilii fiom the back pait ot the
held, passing nili.l tluoiigii the brain
and lo Iglng against tin- skull. The cor.
oner opened Die skull and found Hie bullet
liom a 't"-(alilnr cartridge. It Is In lleved

with black knit gloves. She was diesseil
In the same manner when she left the
home of r. Gainer Wedned.i evening.
Dr. Garner stated that the woman was
