off for a farm n-m Eugenp, mid the family

Cook disappeared and nothing could he
found or heard of him. The community in
stituted a search for him but to no purpose.
The house was searched an I tbe community
became worked up to such nil extent that
Mrs. Cook was about to be arrested for his
murder. It was kuown that the family did
not agree and that Mrs. Cook was a woman
who would have her own way no matter how
she obtained it and this was about the oily
evidence that could be procured against her.
At this time word was receiveu irom wook

TEACH EhS INS ri'lTTK.
Institute opened in form at (Vint House
at 9:30 a. m., by Supt Stevenson iu a lluat
speech. Abont fifty teachers w. re present.
Miss Augusta Patterson presented the sub
ject, "Mistakes of School Management."
The mistakes are not mostly on the part of
teachers. Better wage, better schools and
more visits are needed. Teachers dou't ap
peal; don't be tardy. Sieechea ou the sub
ject were made by Mr Hendricks and others.
Prof Williams then opened the subject.
"School Literature, Reading Circles, Etc"
It has become a truism that this mutiny is a
century of progress. It is necessary that
the teacher avail himself of the experience
of past ages. The teacher must read, study,
thiuk, and bring the resulting enthusiasm to
bear upou his school work.
J M Hodson followed. He greatly favored
the normal institute. It would accomplish
as much with less cost aud iu much less
time than a regular course iu a common
school Speeches ou the subject were made
by Miss Underwood aud Prof Martin. Supt.
Ktcveuson stated that tbe cost would be from
(12 t" $13 daily, makiug a twenty day's ses
sion cost about 230. Moved and seconded
that a committee of three be appointed to
cauv iss tbe institute with a view to the
establishment of a normal institute for the
After a short recess tbe subject of "Whis
per ing or No Whispering" was discussed by
Prof M iriiu ami others. Do not positive
lv prohibit; but by exur.iise of tact, and by
appealing to the pupil's morul sense, reduce
to niiuiuiuui. Keep pupils busy and there
will be no trouble.
The afternoon sessiou opeucd at 1:3d, with
an address bv Pro! Williams on "Primary
Reading." Teaching tbe child to read is
simply giving him u vocalmlury of written
words. T-ach beginners by word method;
then by sentence method; then by tbe phonic
method; use script at first. Every word that
is used ought to be sunk into automatic
action. Vso the blackboard very much at
first. Vary seiiteuces, using the same words
Have pupils copy everything written. Get
pupils to talkiug; du not stop to teach inftec
tiou, etc If pupils get the thought they
will do tho rest.
Mr. Boud, of the Junctiou school, opened
tho subject of "Lulled States History."
Teach pupils to seek out cause and effect in
studying history. Do not burden tne pu
pils memory with dates. Do not make par
rots of them. Have pupils use blank books
to preserve important ideas.
Miss Carrie Hall read an able paper on
"Primary Geography." Begin with famil
iar surroundings and enlarge tbe outside
Prof. Mattin followed with a paper on
"Pbvsiology and Hygiene." It should be
taught iu the common schools. Teach it
bravely. Overcome the opposition of the
iguoraut. The teacher must himself apply
the truths be teaches.
Mouday evening the exercises were as fol
lows: Music,1 1'uiveraity Orchestra; essay,
Miss Leathe McCornack; piauo trio, The
Misses Baum, Friendly aud Lauer; recita
tion, Miss Martha Rcyburu;solo, "When tbe
Dewdrops Kiss tbe Daisies," StulU Dorris;
The exercises opened at 9:20 a. in., with
an address by Prof. Hull, of Corvallis, on
tbe "Value of Graphic Illustration." I I
lustrations are 1, aural; 2, oral; 3, visible;
4, graphic. Of these the latter is by far tbe
most important, especially with primary
grades. The professor then gave a number
of simple drawings shorter by eyeroad.
Surer. Impressible. More indelible, more
pleasurable, most aesthetic sense. The pro
fessor also exhibited some very Bus work
in crayon done by his pupils in the Agricul
tural School at Coivallis.
After recess Mi. Bell rooponed tho sub
ject of "Physiology," in a short address.
Mr. , i'.. urton toiiowod wun a paper on
"School Discipline." Let tho teacher first
govorn himself. Dt not give prizes. Win
over ringlendeis. Be vigilant. Lead, not
drive. Do not mistrust pupils. Do not
worry. Train the moral nature of tbe pu
pil. Be kind. Do not allow pupils to
study in a whisper.
The session opened with an address by J.
M. Hodson on "Examinations in Schools."
Tho speaker btiilly reviewed the history of
examinations in schools, and insisted that
examinations should begin as soon as the
child can urit'. The object of examinations
is to review. It gives confidence. Impress
upon pupils that il is only lo re-impress tho
ideas gathered. Otherwise dishonesty, (lis
coiiiageuieut aud disgust will surely result.
Prof Martin thought that culminations
should never lie made ibe basis ot promotion
in the school. Ihey impose much unneces
sary labor upon the teacher, The professor
then gave a brief exposition of the orgatil.a
tiou and object of tbe Lane Comity Teach
ers' Library Association. Prof Stanley
thought that examinations were importaut
and should never be discarded. Tbey ate,
however, generally overdone. The school is
mndo an examining machine. Prof Williams
believes iu examinations for promotions.
The object of an education is tbe getting of
thought and the giving of thought, if a
pupil cau't give thought he has not thought
to give. Mr Bull doubted tbe etlloiency of
examiuatious for promotion from a physiolo
gical stand point, It is absolutely tbs
slaughterhouse of the mind. It will kill
anything or anybody. The discarded faults
of the past are nearly balanced by tbe uu
discarded faults of to-day.
After recess Prof Hull presented before
the institute a patent desk top.
Prof Williams introduced the subject of
"Intermediate reading." The essentials of
good reading are 1st, comprehension; 2d,
appreciation; 3d, conception. It is utterly
pernicious to allow reading without question
ing. Train to the gettiug nf thought aud
the giving of thought. Have pupils not
only tell the story of the lesson, but write it.
Tbs best traiuing for the pupil is to do
purely intellectual work at the first. Train
bis voice; drill persistently aud thoroughly
on vocal sounds, etc. Drill, drill! Sink
good practices into habit. Insist on abnor
mal breathing, and correct posture. Have
pupils take the rostrum and read to tbe class
as an audience.

The sewerage question in Eugene is a
burning oue. Along the business part of
Willamette street the ground is rotten.
Filth, excrement, aud refuse is thrown into
tbe grouud indiscriminately, to breed dis
ease and death. About prominent corners
the smell of the filth is enough to muko the
tourist seek more congenial quarters.
Sewerage must come. If the City Couu

poned from year to year tbey are mistaken.
The cost will not be greater now than later.

which time throe councilmcn will be elected.
