GREAT FALLS TPiIBIUJE.
WONDERS OF COCAINE. As Seen by a Representative of the Press, in the (bt ce of Dr. Wynne. the Celebrated Ocenlist and Aurist of Helena. Surgical Operaticns Upon Wellknown People From all Parts of the Territory. We had the pleasure by inv\itati n, to be present during the past week, at the office of I)r. Vynne, the celebrated oph thalmic and aural surgeon, the specialist of the eye, ear anl throat, of lhelena, to see surgical operations performed upton these special organs, by the use of co caine as an aua'esthetic. Much ha:s re ceutly been writen by the pres.- through out the country, of the rIeutal kable power of this drug in leadenin : the seniatio(i of MlucoUis tieii)r;illane, thus enliiiu;g the surgeon to p:rforni operations without the use of ci lorojiori or otihe;. eV here with gtive a short terC.oullt of several of the operations lierform'l durins several visits at the ollice of this well known specialist.

The last operation we have seen was one performed for Miss Mary Lenard, of White Sulphur Springs, who has had catarrh of the nose for sonime fourteen years. By the use of a spray, cocaine was applied to the cavity of the nose and afterwards by the aid of a sharp spoon, dead bone, polypi and thickened tissue, the causes of the discharge, were successfully removed. This operation was the last we saw and was the eighth operation performedt dur ing the last seek. The wonderful effect of this drug renders many of these oper ations exceedingly simple, and the confi dent manner in which the cases were handled, proved to us the undoubted abili ty of the operator.-Independent. Sunday School Convention. To the Great Falls TaItBnE. The Fourth Union Sunday School con vention, of Montana, met at the Baptist church, Helena, July 23d, at 9:30 a. m. There were two sessions daily, begining at 9 a. m. and closing at 4 p. m., with two hours for dinner. Ending Sunday night of July 25th. The TRIBUr E has already given its readers the program in full. Every session was opened by devotional exercises, lel by some resident minister. With one exception the addresses were from two notable S. S. workers, viz: Dr. Woriden, of Philadelphia and W. B. .Jacobs, of Chicago. Their talks and !ectures were full of instruction and in spiration. They spoke from the heart. A permanent organization was effected with Rev. I. E. Smith, president and A. E. Bunker, Secretary for the ensuing year. An executive committee repre sntig thie different denominations w~as appointed us follows: Baptist -J. W!. Wade. Congregiational-G. S. Appleton.

Everything n ent to show that the Sunday schools of Montana are in a very healthy condition. The workers are evidently not asleep. The talk on "how to prepare a Sunday school lesson," treated by Mr. Jacobs, is worthy remembrance. ''ihe black-board was used for illustrating his methods. His pohints were made plain and forcible. I)r. W orden next spoke on the topic -how to te-ach the lesson." The follow ing are the he ten rules he gave for the teacher: 1. Never teach what you do not quite understand. 2. Never tell a scholar what you can yet that scho(lar to tell. 3. Never use a hard word when an easy word will do, and never use a harl word without explaining its Imeaning. 4. Never give a piece of information without calling for it again. 5. Never begin a lessoh without a clear co nception of its end. 6. Never allow a scholar to remain a moment in the class without something to do and a motive for doing it. 7. Never give an unnecessary cotm mnand nor one you no not expect to be S. Bring your work to yours scholars' level. 9. Go step by step-one thing at a: time. 10). Link the unknown to the known. The qli:rry-box was a very interesting :and tproittable part of the pregram. Ques tions were answered by Messrs. Worden and: ,Jacobs. The Lible was held up as the guide and principal study of both teacther and pupil. The address of 3Mr. Worden on this theme is commendable to all. A memorial meeting was held upon the dteath of Rev. E. '. . Linnell of the Presbyterian church. The meeting continued to gain in in terest and enthusiasm until it closad. Saturda:y was a very busy and plrofitalle day to all. As I am somewhat limited in space, I will merely call the attention of the reader to the program as given last week, as to the work done and subjects treated. During the "chalk talk" by Mr. .Jacobs, the following was gained: A model S. S. is the best; name, Bible S. S.; object, to transform character and eternal salvation; means, study God's word. Teachers must have good charac ter, must be a consecrated, active, studious, bible student, of good report, prayerful, patient (C'hristian. Pastor's work--gener al oversight of school. Superintendent should be the best Christian for the place. Rooms should be seperate, cheerful, light airy and clean. Next we notice Dr. Worden on the "superintendent's work." The two main offices of the Sup't. are the management and mission of the school. The superin tendent and pastor should work together. It was estimated that three-fourths of the children in Montana between the ages of five and fifteen were in the S. S. The trouble seemed to be general in getting those between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five to attend the S. S. It was decided best to study lesson helps at home and use bibles only in class-work. Again, teaching to be successful, must be in accordance with true principles of instruction. Of these seven were noticed. These obtained alike in all teaching and are worthy of consideration. They are as follows: I. TIHE LAW OF ADAPTATION. That is, the instruction must be suited to the needs of the scholar. Then consider, first--age; second-intellectual condition; third--social surroundings; fourth moral character; fifth--spiritual condi tion. II. THE LAW OF CO-OPERATION. The teacher and pupil must work to gether on the lesson. Telling facts is not teaching. This law requires, first-atten tion awakened and held: second-desire for knowledge aroused; third-the pupils search for truth be directed; fourth-the pupils conscience awakened. III. TIIE LAW OF DEFINITNESS. Truth should be presented in clear and precise language. Taught by, first- statement of questions; second-historical facts; third--doctrinal facts; fourth in practical duties. IV. THLE LAW OF SYSTEM. All teaching should be done in an orderly manner. This requires, first- to begin with the known; second-to proceed st:)ep by s:ep from the known to the unknowfi. Arrange the material so that each thought will naturally connect itself with the succeeding thought. V. TIIE LAW OF ILLUSTRATION. Illus:tration should be employed when ever it will make the truth presented more interesting, clear or forcible. They are found, first--sight.pictures; second- in comparison; third--in imagination; fourth-in the world of incident. Vt. THE LAW OF REPEPTITION. That which is to be remembered must be frequently reviewed. Hence, first- review during lesson recitation; second class review at close of lesson; third- Sup't's. review; fourth--a rapid review before taking up the next lesson; fifth and lastly, a review of all the lessons. VII. THE L.AW VARIETY. Avoid routine plans of teaching and try to have something new in every lesson. The best methods soon become monoti nous. Resolutions were passed thanking Dr. Worden and WV. B. Jacobs for their able assistance; the citizens for their hospitali ty to delegates; the railroads for reduced fares; the Baptist church for use of house. It was decided to hold the next con vention at l)eer Lodge. The churches held their regular services Sunday morning. At 4 o'clock a mass meeting for children, led by t r. Jacobs. was held at the rink. A good crowd was in attendance. In the evening a mass meeting for everybody was held at the same place. It was estimated that from 1,000) to 1,200 people were present. Dr. Woiden and Mr. Jacobs both spoke. These addresses wore good, and were ap preciated by hundreds. This closed the exercie.,, of the convention. Long will it be remnembered. Many will go home better prepared for work from the infor mation and z.a:l gained by this institute. Montana is not a whit behind in her Sunday-school work nor in her able workers. but it is to be hoped that the next convention will prove even better than the one of which we have been speak; ng. J. 31. LAItrENT. Montana Mites. Wmin. HIollingsworth, an old settler, died at Deer Lodge, July 27th. He was buried at Townsend, with Masonic honots. Thomas C. Bach, of Butte, has been ap pointed associate justice of Montana. There will hereafter, be two passenger trains d(laily between Helena and Butte. Minnie IIauk, the prima donna, will be in Helena, September 12th. Israel Maynard was fined $50 and costs, at Helena, for killing fish with giant powder contrary to the statutes of Montana. Cheering reports continue to come from the West Granite, the development of which is actively in progress. There has evidently been a big strike in the Empire, as there is a hustling for stray shares by the insiders. A seal has been put on the Blackfoot and a time-lock set on the lips of the stockholders and orders issued barring anybody from access to the works except on written orders. A strike is anticipat ed at an early day. The development of the Boulder dis trict has received a great impulse from the official announcement of the exten sion of the Wickes branch from Jefferson and up the river. It is a very rich dis trict and only lacked a railroad to stimu late its development. The work of sinking the central shatt on the Hot Springs mine is progressing actively. Superintendent Bratnober says Drum Lummon has reached a value in -the Eirglish market of $45 per share and is still advancing. Murphy, Mclay & Co.
