For five years the writer has used the following method in teaching geographyto priniarypiipils,aud the results have been uniformly satis factory. The chief requisites are accurate knowledge of the fact taught, and plenty of enthusiasm. The course of lessons may be finished in five months, or may ex tend over the entire year. This depends upon the time given to each part. The teacher must use her judgement as to the amount of in formation given at each lesson. She must also bear in mind the following facts : 1. Children retain information better when it is in condensed form. 2. No dry facts or dates must be given. 3. Facts told in the form of a story are more interesting than when given as plain information. 4. In giving products, etc., when ever possible have a sample at hand or, better, have some child bring it. 5. Where the real article is not easily obtainable show the pictures which may always be found. The children like to find them, and it often takes the place, for a time, of the regular busy-work, and is a rest as well as a change. Have the children point out familiar objects, and then find pic tures of them. Compare the real object and the pictured object with regard, especially, to size and smoothness. Do not tell the children, but question them till they tell you that the pictures are very much smaller than the real object, and are smooth to the touch. Follow this out until they clearly under stand the difference between the real and the pictured object. Then show them a sand map of the school grounds, and let them heap up the sand to represent the higher ground, and also to make the depressions. Have them to use pebbles to represent the school house, the well, etc., and if there is running water have these depres sions filled with rice or wheat After they have mastered this, show alligator, especially if there are .Itoys in the class. them a map of North America. Explain about the great size of the country and tell them a very little hit «hont the oceans on either side of ü. Now give them a sand map of the country, (prepared by an older pupil), with only the Ap palachian mountains and the Rock ies,and the Mississippi river. Teach them the names. Then the Missouri, Arkansas, Ohio and Red rivers. Tell them briefly of the Indians who lived here before the white men came, and of Columbus. Divide the British possessions from the United States, telling them of the line of iron posts which marks the boundary, and the line of ties and rails whioh separ ate the states from Mexico. Teach the names of the countries thus separated. Before beginning on the map, teach them what an imaginary line is. Florida is the fc^st state to teach them first on account of its shape, position and products. Tell them how and why it was named so, and ask them to repeat it as they recall it at the next lesson. Given them quite fnlly the story of Ponce de Leon and have them learn the name. They will remem ber it. Give oranges as one of the principal products, and use an orange as the subject for the day's language lesson. Also include the M M M Give Maine for the next lessou. Tell them of the big trees that are cut down to be made into lumber, and of the ships that are built on the coast. Insist on the backward or inat tentive pupil doing the most of the talking. Many otherwise dull chil dren will show a remarkable apti tude for this work. Now give Washington, only the name the first day, and have them find out after whom it was named. Then the products, ete. Texas comes next. These states are far enough apart so as not to confuse the little ones. They will all grasp the idea of the Hag with the siugle star. Tell them of the long-horned cattle there, and the cow-boys. The little boys can prob ably illustrate the manner of throwing the lasso. They are in terested, you know. In turn take California, with its giant trees, its fruits, flowers and gold ; Alaska with its gold and its gentle-eyed seals; Michigan and the copper mines (language lesson on copper) ; Massachusetts and the Pilgrims, locating Boston and giv ing them the Iiostou Tea Party. They fairly revel in the enjoyment of that story. With Virginia give the story of John Smith and Poca hontas ; and so on until every one has been learned. Drill thoroughly on them every day or so, varying the methods of so doing. Let the children use the pointers. enjoy it. Let some member of the class ask some other one to poiut out the different states, rivers and mountains. Thev I a mountains. When giving a lesson on Wyom ing and the Yellowstone Park, tell the children of the geysers and their cause. Show them pictures, describe the action, and then let them draw their idea of jt on the board. Do not attempt the division of Canada or Mexico. Give the cap itals if you like, and a very little of the history of the settlement of the former. It is invariably the case that they enjoy the story of the conquest, however, and the stories of the fabulous wealth of the Montezumas. Give the least terrible facts of the beginning of the Spanish rule. Do not leave them under the impression that the conditions of that time were the same as at present. Take up the West Indies, and then South America. , Next in the uatural order of thiugs will come the British Isles, and Queen Victoria; France, and the Paris Exposition ; Spain, and the boy-king and a few words concern ing the Spanish-American war; Holland, and the willful girl-queen ; Russia, and the Czar, with a brief description of Siberia ; Italy, and Venice with its water streets and gondolas. Include in this Vesuvius. Give the story of Pompeii and Her culaneum, and tell them of the ex cavations now going on, and the results of the same. Take Greece with its story of ancient games, bravery in warfare, etc. ; Turkey and its Sultan ; and so on through Europe. In Asia, the curious customs of India, China and Arabia. But best of all the orient the pupils most love Japan. The polite, small peo ple, who remove their shoes instead of their hats when entering a house, their peculiar mode of salutation, and their chopsticks. The holy land should receive its share of attention, as there are many grown people who have a very vague idea iudeed of its loca tion. Africa will furnish lessons on the Sahara, the fertile Nile valley, with the present improvements ; the Transvaal, and the war. After the Philippines, Australia with its queer kangaroos, its plague of rabbits and the modes of pre venting their depredations ; and the nse England makes of the country (as a convict station). Ark. School Journal. The Federation of Women's Club of Tennessee has taken education for its special work during the four years of its existence. Among other things, it has equipped seven teen traveling libraries and sent them on their journeys through the portions of the state cut off from literary and educational advantages. A member of the faculty of the Peabody Normal School serves as chairman of the educational depart ment of the federation. The Pea body Woman's Club is made up of young ladies from all over the south and west, and there is no measuring the future influence they will have on education. They have already sent out two well selected traveling libraries. A REMARKABLE DOCUMENT. One of the most remarkable ad vertisements ever put forth has made its appearance recently in the shape of a little folder, containing the subjoined matter. The query naturally arises: What has hap pened between "Old Krutuck" and the Cumberland Telephone Co? OLD KENTUCKY'S WAV. Kentucky is noted for her beau tiful women, fast horses and bril liant statesmen. She is noted, too, for lier many fusses fends and fights. Man born in the mountains of Kentucky is of fend days and of virus. He fisheth, fiddleth, cusseth and figliteth all tho days of his miserable life. He shuuneth water as a mad dog and driuketh much mean whiskey. When he desireth to raise h —1, he planteth a neighbor, and lo ! he reapeth twenty fold. Ile riseth even from the cradle to seek the scalp of his grandsire's enemy, and bringeth home in his carcass tho amuuition of his neighbor's wife's cousin's uncle's father-in law, who aveugeth the deed. Yea, verily, his life is uncertain, and he knoweth not the hour that he may be jerked hence. He goeth forth on a journey half shot, and cometh back on a shutter shot. He riseth in the night to let the I ca * ou *' au( * ^ taketh uine doctors three days to pick the buckshot out of him. full He goeth forth in joy and glad ness and cometh back in scraps and fragments. A cyclone bloweth him into the bosom of his neighbor's wife, and his neighbor's wife's husband bloweth him into Abraham's bosom before he hath time to explain. He emptieth a demijohn into himself and a shotgun into his en emy, and his enemy's sou lieth in wait for him on election day, and lo ! the coroner ploweth up a forty acre field to bury the remains of that man. Woe, woe is Kentucky, for her eyes are red with bad whiskey, and her soil is Stained with the Môodoî innocent moonshiners." CONCLUSION. To be safe, stay at home and use the long distance telephoue service of the Cumberland Telephone and Telegraph Co. If troubled with rheumatism, give Cham berlain's Pain-Balm a trial.

Julius Koch. The Country Racing to Destruction Under Republican Rule. Wichita, Kan., April 25.—Allen O. Myers of Ohio, responding to a toast to-night at tho banquet of the Sunflower League of Kansas, fol lowing William J. Bryan, created a sensation by his utterances. Mr. Myers drew a dark picture. The country was fast racing to destruc tion, saiil he, and Mark Hanna, William MoKiulev and Great Brit ain were driving it. Then suddenly turning toward Mr. Bryan the speaker exclaimed: "You may be elected, sir, by a million majority, but they will not permit you to take the presidential chair. Look at tho fate of William Goebel. Men whose pastime is bribery find in murder an amuse ment. "Ohio was bought in 18%, the country was bought, it will be bought again in 1900, and Mark Hanna's reward for it is a seat in the United States Senate. "The masses of the country would continue to permit the encroach ments," concluded Mr. Myers, "finally too late for a restoration of rights by the ballot.

About three years ago my wife had an attack of rheumatism which confined her to lier bed for over a month and rendered her unable to walk a step without assis tance, her limbs being swollen to double their normal size. Mr. S. Maddox insisted on my using Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I purchased a fifty-cent bottle and used it according to the directions and the next morning she walked to breakfast without assistance iu any manner, and she has not had a similar attack since.—A.

In tho case of the Texas anti trust law, the federal supreme court has decided that any state may arbitrarily prohibit corporations formed in other states from doing business within its borders. The only strange thing about this deci sion is that any one should ever have supposed a contrary decision to be possible. While it is true that no state can deny to the citi zens of any other state the same business opportunities that it grant* to its own citizens, it is not and has never been judicially regarded as bound to recognize the corporations of other states. They are only fictitious persons which may or may uot be recognized as such by the states into which they go to do business. Such possible doubt as there may have been about this matter is now removed. The su preme court holds that the state of Texas had a complete right to pre vent one of the standard oil corpora tions, created in another state, from doing business in Texas ; and it places the decision squarely upon the broad ground that a corporation has no legal existence beyond the limits of the state that creates it. There is, therefore, no longer any excuse either for Mr. Bryan or for the republicans in congress to urge the enaotment of federal laws against trusts. Any state can within its own borders put the ban upon incorporated trusts as completely as congress could by any law short of oqe repealing the protective Iieware of Ointments for Catarh that Contain Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the whole system when entering it through the mucous surfaces. Such articles should never be used except on prescriptions from reputable physicians, as the damage they will do is ten fold to the good you can possibly derive from them. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O., contains no mercury, and is taken internally, acting directly, upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. In buying Hall's (Jure be sure you get the genuine. It is taken internally, and made in Toledo, Ohio, by F. J. Chenney & Co. Testimonials free. Sold by Druggists, price 75c per bottle. Hall's Family pills are the best. With singular unanimity the small manufacturers and small dealers and small banks of the country fear the centralization of wealth under McKinley favoritism. Such vast aggregations of wealth constitute a positive menace to not only the very poor, but also to the men of moderate fortune. These men fear the continuation of Mc Kinley's policy for four years more. —Helena Independent. J. I. Carson, Prothonot&ry, Washington, Pa., says, "I have found Kodol Dypepsia Cure an excellent remedy in case of stomach trouble, and have derived great benefit from its use." It digests what you eat and can not fail to cure. Julius Koch. McKinley's friends can congra tulate him for succeeding in doing for Puerto Rico, whose people wel comed our troops as deliverers, within less than two years what George III attempted to do with his American colonies, and what England has succeeded in doing for centuries with Ireland. a A rich man <lied the other day. He died m the very midsummer of life, and he left his family $1,000,000. The doctor's certifi ât /./ S at '\ showed that \ // lIt ath resulted from a ' N . typhoid fever.

Rut he ~~ii' ruined his stomach by hasty meals, snatched in inter vais of business and by neglect of symptoms which have been warning him a year past, that his stomach was tailing in its duties." 1 he symptoms of a disordered condition of the stomach and the organs of digestion and nutrition arc, among others, variable appetite, sour risings, heartburn, undue fullness after eating, dull headache, dingy complexion, discolored eye, fluctuations in physical strength, nervousness, sleepless ness, despondency. No one person will have all these symptoms at once, but any one of them calls for prompt aid for the suffering stomach. The restoration of the stomach, digestive and nutritive organs to a condition of sound health, begins with the first dose of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The cure progresses from that dose until the functions of the stomach and its related organs are in healthy operation. Then the nerves are quiet, the appetite healthful, the sleep restful, the eye blight, the complex ion clear. In one word the body is in a condition of perfect health. "i was troubled with indigestion about two years, writes w m. iîowkcr . , of Juliaetta, I-at a h Co ., Idaho .

Five bottles of Dr Pierce's Oolden Medical Dis covery and two vials of his ' Pleasant Pellets ' cured me." Don't let the dealer sell you a substitute, if you want a cure.
