By a similar process thousands of :acres of land have been covered with trwss of different kinds, the birds acting as nature's agents in ihe dissemination of plants.

The afternoon session waa oc cupied by singing and an address of welcome by Prof. G. W. Twitmeyer, Professor of the Bethlehem schools, who also spoke briefly on good or der nnd discipline in the school room. He was followed by Prof. E. L. Kemp, of tho East Strouds burg Btuto Normal, who also wel comed the teachers and spoke inter estingly on school work. The evening sittsion was occupied as a social season in order that the teachers might make mutual ac quaintances and discuss their vari ous methods. Tuesday morning, Prof. Twit- moyer spoke on the subject, " Cul tivation of Moral Power." His points were that children are largely crea tures of impulse and it is best to chant to them tho praise of the good and never weary iu well do ing to infuse all the sunshjne possi ble in your lives and the lives of those around you. It was re marked that this was one of the best fcilks giveu in au institute for many years. Prof, W. II. Dctwoilor, of the Bloomsburg State Normal, followed in a tulk, " How to Teach History." Ho said history is to fcliQW how man has developed into what ha tOr day, it touches patriotism and. good citizenship, and should be maibt the subject of intelligent thought fcT cause it shows the causes anil re lations of things. Prof. E. L. Kemp occupied the re mainder of the morning by ft talk on ' Power Test in the School Room." He said botany teaches us to see things as they nre, that a more definition is of no worth, un less you work problems for yourself you cultivate mechanical power. Tuesday afternoon, Professor Twitmyor talked on the school and its factors the teacher, lessons and child. Truth is what is as 'it is. Knowledge is known truth. Tho teacher must find what the pupil knows the extent of its knowledge and lead the child to sum up this knowlodgo and put it in a stntmont. The teachor must master the lesson, and not try to teach too much but always koep tho children busy. Prof. Dotweiler also sjioko on the topic, How to put the instruction given into prnctico. In tho evening Frof. Twitmyor lectured on Citizenship. Ho said each good trait instilled in the pupil is a step towards making him a good citizen. Ho also spoke on the im portance of teaching economy in the use of school supplies, and this is a matter which cannot be too strongly impressed, unless teachors exercise enre, the very thing which the state intends should be of material bonoflt bocomes an Injury to tho child by cultivating a habit of wastefulness. Obedience teaches respect to law and this is one of tho prime requisites of of a good citizen. It also teaches proper respect for the rights of others, which is also an important element in the school room and state. Wednesday, morning Prof. Kemp talked on attention : this is tho do- groo of energy with which tho mind works, and interest is a first condi tion. There are several elements which enter in this, such as the con tent of the child's mind, dependent on such external conditions, as the weather, tho room, temperature, light and air. The teacher's health and disposition for tho day, the health of tho pupil are all factors. There must be dicipline and a fixed idoa of good order which is a neces sity to attention. Prof. Twitmyer further bilked on the importance of the teachor hav ing a clear mastery of the subject. The child must learn to think and to act, to form an opinion and to state it. He must also be taught to depend on himself. The school should teach tho child to conserve strength that when tho test comes it will not be overdrawn. Man is known by the result he produces. The school should develop good habits and give children systematic knowledge. It should send them out with some intellectual develop ment. Vote for W. 8.

At an early hour Sunday morning the building on Harford street own ed by Jos. W, Pinchot and occupied by the Milford Lyceum Association for a library ond reading room was discovered to bo on flro. Tho whole interior of tho houso soemod to be ablaze, nnd although the fire com panies responded with promptness and streams of water wore quickly turnod on yet so far had tho flames extended that it was impossible to gave any part of the valuablo library maps or papers belonging to the As sociation. The building ond con tents were totally burned. The houso was insured through the agency of Ryman and Wells for $1000 but there was none on tho con tents. Several theories havo boon advanced as to tho origin of the fire, hut none soem to satisfactorily ex plain it. Stories are afloat of a lamp having boon removed from a street light and of the can containing kero. sene in tne huuding hoving been found in onother part than where it is usually kiipt but there is no de finite means of knowing whether if these rumors are true they have any connection with tlio tire. x The loss falls heavily on tho as sociation as it deprivos them of books, which cannot easily bo re placed, and also of a room. It is impossible to conceive that any one could be so dastardly as to do wit h deliberation on act which inflicts such serious loss on the community, The Milford Suliool Iteport, Roll Honor.
