Being Held Here This Week.
The Idaho county teachers' insti
tute is in session this week at the
school building. About a hundred
teachers are in attendance and it is
the opinion of all that the present
meeting is by far the most profitable

and greater interest in the different
work of the institute is being taken
by the teachers than ever before.
Chas. W. Greenough, county super
intendent, has charge of the session.
Professors Hulme, of the U. of L,
Black and Hibbard, of the Lewiston
normal, and Miss Long, of Lewiston,
are the instructors for the week.
The institute closes Friday.
Prof. Edward M. Hulme, head of
the department of history of the
State university, gave a very enter
tabling lecture at the court house
last night. The subject of the talk
was "The Force of Literature," and
was dealt with in a pleasing and
scholarly manner. Mr. Hulme is
one of the most powerful lecturers
in the west and is a historian of ex
traordinary power, having written
several authoritative books on differ
ent epochs and movements.
Prof. Black of the Lewiston state
normal, will deliver a lecture on
"The Place of the Parent in Educa
tion" tomorrow night.
