Mrs. Jennie Kcysor Speaks on "Christ Child In Art" State Superintendent Fowler Meets and Addresses the Teachers Sectional Meetings. The teachers association convened yesterday afternoon in sectional moot ings. The high school section mot in room 1 of the High school building with a good attendance of instructors in the higher studios of the public schools. A great deal of Interest in the mooting was manifest and there was some in structive discussion of the papers pre sented. II. E. Mason of Stauton County gave a very comprehensive answer to the question , "Should the same riglducfis bo maintained in the high school as in the grammar room ? " A. MoMurray of North Bond spoke on the question , "How much science should our smaller high schools teach ? " N. M. Graham of the South Omaha high school discussed the question , "Arc smaller high sohoolH attempting too much , if BO , along what lluesy" The subject of an interesting address by R. H. Graham of West Point was "Shall wo continually strive for something now in graduating exorcises ? " The grammar school section mot in room 2 of the high school building and those attending took a deep interest in the subjects discussed. "Illustrated Geography" formed the basis for an in structive paper by W. R. Woodruff of St. | James. L. P. Sorensen of Ewiug spoke on the question , "What topics should bo emphasized and what should bo omitted in the study of arithmetic ? " O. A. Preston of Tildon discussed "Mental arithmetic , its place and im portance in the course of study. " The subject of the paper presented by Miss Viola Murray of Ponder was , "What constitutes a logical arrangement of topics in geography ? " One of the most interesting of the sec tional meetings was that of the primary section held in room 3 of the High school building. Miss Julia Pittun of Fnllerton Jgave her ideas concerning "Taste in art and literature and its re lation to the moral development of the child. " Miss Julia Stafford of this city had a paper on "Illustrated Class work in numbers. " Miss Jessie Stobbins of Petersburg expressed her opinion on "Fads in the primary school and their value. " "The mental and moral de velopment of the phild" was logically discussed by Miss Idelle B. Taylor of Battle Creek , and Miss Lucy Williams of this city spoke on "Illustrated class work in reading. " The county superintendents' section was held in room 4 of the High school and an idea of the interest may bo learned from the fact that adjournment was not taken until 5 o'clock. F. A. Barber of Boone county opened a discus sion regarding "Uniformity of text books in the county , should we have it and how to get it ? " W. N. Stevenson of Pierce county told of "Direct and in direct ways of raising the standard of teachers. Should examinations be held before the time of thocounty institute ? " J. A. Stahl of Cnming county talked on "The compulsory attendance law and its results. " F. J. Henry of Coif ax county gave his experience with "Ways of awakening educational interest , increas ing public sentiment and arousing en thusiasm for the schools. The Christ Child in Art. The Auditorium was packed again last evening and deep interest was taken in the study of art under the direction of Mrs. Jennie Keysor of Omaha. The program was opened with a selec tion of music by the Columbus high school orchestra and after the announce ments had been made Miss Nellie Grant of Madison favored the audience with a brilliantly executed solo on the piano. Mrs. Koysor was introduced and thor oughly entertained the educators as sembled with an art talk of more than an hour's duration. Mrs. Koysor is a pleasing platform speaker and has evi dently spent years in acquiring the knowledge that enabled her to speak so eutertaininly on an accomplishment of such pronounced publio interest. Mrs. Keysor's address was illustrated with beautiful stereoptlcon views of famous masterpieces and works of art thrown on the screen by E , E. Adams with his excellent machine. The various conceptions of the Christ child by the different masters were shown and there differences explained. Other views of art work not pertinent to the subject were also shown and the views included representations of some of the world's most beautiful buildings and descriptions of their architectural features. The evening was very much enjoyed by those attending and was productive of valuable information regarding the world's art. This Morning's Program. The distinguishing feature of this morning's program was the address of State Superintendent W. K. Fowler and there was a large attendance of teachers and the people of Norfolk. The super- tateudont is vigorous in his views nnd oxproHsofl hiniBolf In eloquent language. The imhjflct of his addruHH was , "Hear ing Down on the KtsuntlalH , " and the manner In which ho bundled hln mihjuot showed that ho takes a duep intorcHt in the work of education and him studied it in all Its phases. The educators wore much strengthened and encouraged by his addroHH. Omen Bishop of Newman ( Irovo fol lowed the superintendent with a paper regarding the "Means of Holding Pupils in School" andlhls ideas on the mibjuut were considered of much 'practical valno. Rev. Goo. E. Taylor gave an addrcFH on "Tho Boy" that hold the oloFOHt at tention of his hearers and proved both instructive and entertaining. The particular interest of the morn ing session centered in the [ selection of officers of the association for the cunn ing year and the choice of place for the next meeting. The following were the ofllcors elected : Superintendent II. E. Mason of Stanton - ton , president. Superintendent E. B. Sherman of Schuylor , vice president. Mrs. 0. II. Bright of Wayne , secre tary. Superintendent J. A. Stahl of West Point , treasurer. In choosing the location for the next annual meeting the uploudidonthuBiaHin of Columbus , represented by the very largoJdoloKtttion from.that town , was re warded and the next annual mooting of the association will bo hold in the city on the Platto. Fremont was an earnest competitor for the honor but it required a short time to demonstrate that the Columbus people and their friends were hero to win. Norfolk , having had the mooting for several years post , made no further effort to secure its return to this city than to extend an invitation , FOR SAI.K One 5-aoro tract adjoining city also 2 tracts of 10 acres each in edge of town.
