The afternoon session was opened by
l'rofossor Canipboll taking the subject
of geography. President Campbell laid
the plun of the book on this subject, be
fore tlie Institute as only an artist in his
line could and Uo suKgotted many
books that can be used advantageously
as supplementary work on Koogruphy.
The next on tiie program was a paor
by I'rofeHHor J. H. MeCormiick of the
Kukoview school. In this paor Mr.

The flrnt on the program for the morn
ing MoMsioii wa (irainiuar by I', h.
('ampUdl. As I'roMidmit Campbell in
tr.xlucod 'he Hiibjucl of Language, his
remarks on grammar wore on the linos
of simpl.i progress from one blanch lo
the next higher. As I'roidetit Cinp-Im-II
said, "u gradually piiHS from the
known to the unknown." Thu next
subject waa Arithmetic by Superintend
ent Ackormun. In hisdim-UMOou he foU
Iowa in the SMino line as when he lint
introduced thu subject, "lie said, null y
problems s'lould im made to fit giv n
conditions." Superintendent Ackorm.tii
strongly advocitlcs the uho of linos in ex
planation and s olving arithmetical prob
lems. A rooKS was now taken.

up the further study of History as ro
uted to Civil Government. Mr. Ack
ermau dovolop.il the methods employed
in elect ion of officers from primaries to
tho elcctwl oilicer taking the oath of
office. He show til how this process
could lo carried out in public schools
with little effort, thus makingthe pupils
acquainted with the workings of po
litical or literary organizations.
A recess was now taken for noon.
Afternoon, the first was s review of
reading as introduced by Superintend
ent Ackerman. He said: ''Heading is
thought gelling, not pronouncing
woids." Ho said: "have tliu pupil
memorize short a lections of choice po
etry. All eighth grade examinations
now will call lor a short selection of
this kind to lie written.
The next was a paer by Mr. T. F.
Newbill entitled "Character." He
showed that character is taught at
learned ; also that a teacher should be
tho model as well as leader in his com
munity. The many excellent qualities
of this essay caused the Institute by a
unanimous vote to ask Mr. Newbill to
allow it to be published in the Oregon
Teachers' Monthly. Superintendent Wil
lits next took up the subject of Music
again, and save some very excellent
drills that will produce good results if
employed in the schools.
Next 1'resident Campliell completed
his instruction oil Geography. He said
"use the outline with the book but do
not become its slave, lie original and
introduce much supplemental work."
President Campbell thinks that half
holidays could be of much boned if
used in studying Geography from oa
lure rather than text.
The question 1kx w hich had been well
patronised during the day was now
taken up by President Campbell.
WKDNBMIIAY, OCT. 2NU.
President Campbell now took up the
subject of Grammar whore he loft of! on
Tuesday. He gave a good outline for
the preparation o' a lesson in grammar,
alto a good outline to conduct a recita
tion in the same.
Supoiin'endent Ackornian next took
up the subject of AritlimoticHiid showed
his lino analysis can li adopted to any
and all problems of this branch. He
solved many dilllcult problems by this
method, making the explanations so
clear that any pupil could understand
them. Touchers, if ihey follow this
method of analysis, will have no more
dilllcully in teaching montttl arithmetic.
President (Jampbell now took up Ap
plied Psychology and continued on thu
lines laid down by him in his previous

Grand Marshal of the Ancient Order of
United Workmen, has found a rich
field in which to labor in the New I ine
Creek vicinity. In an interview with
Mr. lloyd last Monday he told an Ex
aminer representative that he had in
stituted a lodge of Workmen at New
Pine Creek with 33 charter members,
and that by next Saturday night the
roll of applicants would reach 43. Be
sides he had already applications num.
bering C5 for a lodge of the Degree of
Honor and the members would reach
100 b fore lie flnirhed his canvass. This
ia a wonderful showing for a town the
size of New Pine Creek, and demon
strates the fact that the people are be
coming alive to the importance of good,
cheap, lodge insurance and family pro
tection in case of death. A number of
the pioneer members of the old Lake
view lodge of Workmen went to New
Pine Creek on September 28th to assist
Mr. Boyd in instituting the new lodge.
The lodge was named New Pine Creek

Taken to the Asylum-
Since Vernio Hopkins' incarceration
he has become demented. Last Thurs
day County Physicians Via. Smith and
Stoiner, in the presence of the County
Court, examined the patient aud pro
nnuiicei' him insane. He was commit
ted to the asylum at Salem and John B.
Blair and Ashley Follett wore appointed
guards to escort him to the institution
for which place they started hist Friday.
The asylum is a better place than any
other for this unfortuiiato young muii.
He may be cured under the kind treat
ment of the asylum doctors, and still
become a useful citizen. Let us bo -e so.
Citizen" Gives His Rea
sons Why Lakeview
District Ought to
Editor Examixfh: I notices petition
in t ircula'ion, having '.or its object the
division of our school district, and am
grea'ly surprised that many, ept-ecially
taxpayer, are signing it. It serins to
me that i.o citizen of this town, especial-
I ly if he be a patron of our choo and a
taxpayer, can consistently sign a petition
m divide the district.
In the first place the district is bonded,
all of which bonded indebtedness would
have to lie paid by the old district (No.
i 7i in cai-e of a division, the new district
being relieved from all obligation on ac
count of this debt.
In the terond place, if ifie district
were divided, the new district would be
enti led to a division of all the school
i property even to their part of the ap
j praised value of our school buildings and
grounds, to say nothing of dividing our
school money, furniture and apparatus,
j We would necessarily have to vote a
lariie tax on our proierty to raise this
propoilional part of the appraised value
j of our school pioperty, which I fancy
would not be generally favored by the
A divinon would virtually destroy our
very efficient high schorl a school that
is the pride of the county, and one that
compares favorably with any other of
like institutions iu the state. I say that
a diviciou would destroy this high school,
which it surely would do unless we were
to resort to taxation for its support.
The boundaries ot the proposed new
district, as I understand it, are about aa
follows: Commencing about lj miles
north of town and extending north to
the north boundary line of our present
district which is north of Warner can
yon ; from west to east it extends from
the east line of Thomas creek district,
near the F. D. Bauer ranch, east to be
yond Camas prairie. Anyone at all fa
miliar with the actual bona fide residents
of this territory knows that it would be
utterly impossible to locate a school
building so that a l could be Accommd"
dated; in fact some of the resident
would be nearer to Lakeview than to the
building in the proposed district. Then,
again, it is well known that the parents
whb represent a majority of the pupils
of school age residing in the proposed
district are merely temporary residents,
who may be in another county or state
at any time.
Taking it all in all I must confess that
from my way of thinking a division of
our district at this time would benefit
the residents in the new district but
little if any, and that it would be of in
calculable damage to our school.

The Telephone Line
The planting of poles for the Lake
County Telephone lin: will be com
