subjoct of Technical Grammar
was given to Prof. J. P. King for
discussion. In his discourse on this
subject Prof. King allirms,
Grammar adds little t nothing
to tho ability to speak and write
It promotes the study of
tho mind, distinguishes between
mind and opinion, liolps form logical
conception ot words, also deals with
and aids in understanding
Poor teaching and the attompt to
teach technical Grammar to small
children have paused the universal
dislike for Grammar. A mistake in
teachicg Grammar is in giving too
much attention to rules and not
enough to construction.
He thinks technical Grammar
should be touched very lightly below
the scvonth and eighth grades.
Prof. Chapman continued the discussion
of Grammar giving special
attention to the Indicative and Subjective
Rev, Thompson, Presiding Elder
ol the Hcidcrson District of the M.
E. church, addressed the teachers.
He stated, that, notwithstanding the
educational advantages, crime is increasing.
One cause of this increase
is the number of negroes and foreign
proplc. The salvation of the country
is secure when the teachers and
preachers have inculcated in the
mind of youth the idea of honesty,
truthfulness and nobility.
