An early electric car brought the Brooks and ('tomes families fro Plqua, and others came to Celina and were at once conveyed to their destin ation, while the families of Joseph Wolfe's children gathered in from their respective homes in Morcer County.

When the dinner hour arrived a feast was spread in the shade and the hungry Wolfee proceeded to partake of the tempting viands. The afternoon was passed In a most delightful manner, several of the young people enjoying boating expedi tions, while their eldors chatted under the trees and spent the time in remin iscenses.

MM A nnrovft of I 'rOLTOWHl VO IjPL'IS- lation of Lnst Ohio (Sen oral Assembly. Institute Will Meet Next Year During Closing Full Week of Chautauqua. By Matilda Desch, Scc'y. Tuesday morning's aeaaion opened at 0 o'clock with muaic, led by Miss Mabel McDouald. After repealing the Lord's Prayer the teachers listened to Dr Ascham, on the subject "The Child's Inheritance." The prophets have uaed the child aa a symbol of the home, Children do not inherit Ideas, culture, virtue and religion. Personality la developed aa they associate with otura. I hey are inborn playwrights, drama tizing tne ute or Hie elder around them. (ioodiiess bides itself, and does not ap peal to them aa the badness In this world. It must bedramati.ed in order to appeal to them. How are we to get the moral inheritance of the child? (Jet rid of our own faults and the bad S terature that poisons the minds of the young people. Formation oi character the true end of all education. Kvf'ry thing that will make the soul of the child nobler, should be the object of the teacher. I he teacher is the Stewart of the kingdom of God, and should see to It that the child geta hia inheritance. After an intermission Prof. MartzolU gave one of his interesting history topics, "The Relation of tho Statee of the Union to the Federal Government.' Thia was the greatest problem the gov ernment has ever tried to solve. The problem of government has ever been a hard one. The Civil War only settled the secession of statt s. The state shall give way to the national government, when contest arise between the Reiiub lie and State. During the constitutional convention the political parties had to compromise. Alexander Hamilton represented the anti-Federalists. The people looked upon tho government as opposed to them. By the implied constitution we are becoming more Democratic. A na tion Is an ethnical unit occupying a geographical unit. When the people have the same ideas we have ethnical unity, then a state can be formed. The Puritans, Dutch, Swedes, Catholics, Scotch-Irish and Germans all settled in dill'erent geographical unities form ing 13 states and governments. In the crucible of war we tried to make one state out of 13 ethnical unities. The idea of self-government grew up under the banner of liberty and freedom During tho intercolonial wars, tho col onies were self governing. Kach state became Democratic. The national gov ernment called upon the States to make new constitutions. The sovereign power consists of three tilings, 1st, the right to tax; 2nd, the right of eminent domain; 3rd, police fiower. After the announcement of the elec tion of officers for Friday, the meeting adjourned until one o'clock. Atternoon Session The afternoon meeting was called to order at one o'clock. After song ser. vice theO.T. R. C. Secretary was elected. L.L.Leidy, of Rockford, was nominated and elected by acclamation. Dr. Ascham spoke of the Knglish Novel." Some of the modern novels are lackingdiction. In the older school of fiction there is something nobler, which the modern novels have not sur passed, nor even equalled. George Elliot Is the leading novelist of the l!th century. The book lives, which can breathe the spirit of living man. and will be literature as long as world en dures. Novels are divided into two classes, 1st as to the mode of treatment into romance, historical, and realistic; 2nd, as to the material, psycholistic problematic, manneristic and animal. Before taking up his snhj"ct for the afternoon Prof. Martzolff spoke of "A State Teacher's Pension System," pro posed by Hamilton county Teachers Association. We pension our soldiers for shouldering the musket and main taining peace, but a far braver soldier is the teacher who saves the lives and help to build up the souls of tho child- Continuod on fifth page. Wednesday Morning Session Wednesday morning's session of the Mercer County Teachers' Association, after devotional and song service, Prof. Martzolff gave a splend addiess, The Bsttle of the Lakes," or "The Battle of Lake Erie." War has played a promi- nent part in history, but history is not made in the time of war, but in time of peace. Nations have violated the laws of humanity, and have fallen a prey to the disease of war. It teaches people bow to take care of the body politic and how to keep its laws. The mis sion of the teacher is not to glorify war, but to lead in the great contest, univer sal peace. The boys and girls of Ohio ought to be interested in the war of 1H12, because this war meant more to the pepplo of Ohio than to any other state. On the shores f Lake Erie the American and British nations were united in sympathy. Never again the tocsin of war sound that these two na tions ever be In battle again. May they go on with the Idea that law Is right, and law is might. After a short intermission Dr. Asch am spoke to the teachers on "The Crime of Reconstruction." Teachers should read largely in various texts of history in order to distinguish between a fact and Its interpretation. The per iod of reconstruction was the final test, whether or not the Union could endure. This period may be studied under Lincoln's, Johnson's, and Hayes' administrations. Afternoon Session Afternoon session opened with sing ing by the association, after which Prot. Martzolff spoke to the teachers on "The Drama of the Ash Heap." A classic Is a masterpiece that appeals to tne un,vergal gym thleg of raanklnd, It is something men and women may read and see themselves reflected in it. A classic will show the great contests waged within the soul of man. He, who Is victorious in this internal con flict is greater than the man who has taken a city. We have four great I masterpieces. We get from the He brew, the Book of Job; from the Greek, I'rouietheiia Bound; from the German, Fauai; from the Knglish, Hamlet. The nature or the contests and con lllcta are the same. The better nature contesting with the baser, the aex 'hlch la victorious. In the Book of Job and In Prometheus Bound the hero has lost his soul. The Drama of the Ash heap la taken from the Book of Job, Our greatest later day poem waa written in Knglish, Tennyaon's "In Memorlam." It is a monumental peice of literature, a poem of triump, of living faith, ttie greatest rnllgloua poem of the century. Tennyaon fought the fight and waa vlctorloua, He died In the faith of Nar.arene. Prof. Mart.ollf cloaed hia addreaa with Tennyson's "Croaaing the Bar." After a short lntermiaalon Dr. Aacli am had the teachers take a Jonrney of the Worth While. He apoke of Haw. thorne's life at borne and abroad. Hia experience while conaul at Liverpool furnished the subject matter for bis Italian notebook. Teaehera cannot teach literature until they feel within the heart and aoul, the Uvea of those great friends the poets. They invite u a into the great literary field of our Knglish language. The meeting ad journed until 0:00 o'clock Thuraday, Among Our Friends Lewis Alt. of Liberty Township, has the distinction of being the first man to make his annual school settlement with Auditor Morrow, Ho was In yesterday.

SEPTEMBER I Now softened suns a mellow- luxter shed. he laden orchard glow with templing red on ha. el boughs the clusters bang em browned. And with the bunting horn the fields re sound. Old September Poem. Well we should say so, and the mel borne horn of Mr. Morgan will awake the morn, bidding us garner for the bins and cribs in which we labor for bis royal nibs. The summer ended and the blower on, the respite over and the money gone, and Rockefeller aa we drill along, bowing and hoping we are well and atrong. The seaside sojourner will quit the shore, and the summer girl will line up three or four conquests in puppy love she has around, and choose the one that Is to go undrowued. The which selection from the litter born of summer madness she will then suborn with things sufficient to unlock its eyes, and hurry homeward with the grasping prize. The busted tourist will return from France with hotel stickers stuck all over his pants, and tarred and postal carded by his friends, will reap the penalty of what he sends. They'll waltz him up and down upon a rail, and alternately turn him head and tail, or howsoever they may best enjoy the views in Venice or the site of Troy. The festive calt will blithely sniff and snort, and deftly tip up where the hair is short, and in the quiet even afterglow the quail will pipe bis dulcet piccolo. The bold Insurgent will ln- surge the more, and fill the planet with its dreadful roar, and each one betting he will not be last, the autumn candi dates will gallop past. The new progressive and the demo crat, the uninsurging that are standing pat, and in the midst of them, unfaint of heart, our Mr. Bryan on the water cart. A maze of issues, and a mass of men, and lo! a gallas busting now and then, and not especially alarmed by it, the trusts desisting til the swarm has lit. The man from Elba trying to come back. And the poor consumer in bis cul-de-anc Unkowlng If the quaking earth portends Death or the near approach, perhaps, of friends. But howsoever and be it as it may, the dread mosquito will have had its day, and joining Satan in its spectral growth, have made it real hell there for them both. The while the earthly remnant of it swings upon the screen, and drying clings to that post which, though wanting mortal fire, it still holds with its face against the wire. Tbe sad llrst day of school will come to pass. And tbe barefoot boy will hide out In the grass. And by the time wo.ve caught these mal contents, The Urlppen chase will look like thirty cunts. Milady Fashion in her hobble skirt will stride the pavement with the men alert to set her right side up again in caBO she should in time turn turtle any place. It does beat thunder what the women wear, and how they stick on othei peoples hair, constrict their mid dles and constrain their toes and what importance they attach to clothes. But bless us are they after all to blame or had they been in these things quite tbe same if Mother Eve's first thought as we suppose, had not been necessari ly of clothes? Was it to be expected in her case that with a man somewhere upon the place she ever thought of anything at all but gowns, slipovers, or perhaps a sbawIT But anyhow, the crawfish will have holed, And the pumpkin shown the faintest trace of gold. The sassafras will don a redder dress, And the gods will crowd around tbe cider press.
