10 THE lOLA DAILY REGISTEJJ. TUESDAY EVENING; DECEMBER 19,'1911 MAKE STOOY INTERESTING VALU.IRLE IDEAS BROUGHT OUT AT TEACHERS' MEETIXU. County Teachers' (latiierlngr Here Saturday Proved of Helpful Bou- elit to Voung luNtructors. A very prontablo session of the • Allen County Teachers' Association was held at (he lola HiKh School building last Saturday, about a hundred teachers being present. Modern methods of tcaciiinK Keadlug wero discussed and Individual experiences which secured results were related. Dr. A. Monroe Stone of the Kansas Slate Normal .school conducted a Kound Tabln on "How to Study." lie s:iid tliat Instead of assigning so many pages or paragraphs or tlie pupil lo .study, the teacher should propose problems which api)eal to the ciilld for him to work out with thtvald of text books and conversaUon with his parents and frlend.s. Thi.s method gives motive for study. Suiieriiitendrni .Mayberry said that good teaching consists of adjusting a ( hild lo an idea followed by drill. As 1 a concrete Illustration, he said to leach-the meaning of the word "raod- ily", draw a rude picture of a man^n till' board and then erase his arms and becomes an armless man. The child's . iili'a of man lias been chan.ged or mod- ilied. From this ailju.itment to nn idea you have t'.ie child develope his own dtfinition of an adjective, and then follow.s drill in selecting adjectives from his reader or grammar. Superintendent C. M. Hllliary said that to make the child enjoy and learn f;eogra|>liy we must make him feel •, the various relations, physiographic, .scientific, historical and social of the earth to himself. Propose live problems for him to study out . Why are the great factories of Xew England states, one after another shutting down? Why must the people there seek new occupations? What must be the nature of these occupations? Why does 95 per cent of the value of the products of, Belgium and Switzerland represent labor and 5 per cent material? What effect will increased population hare on the industries of Kansas? The two points emphasized during the discussion were the proposing of specific alms or problems for study and the giving of clear conceptions of ideas. Children are to be encouraged to have a part in jiroposlng the problems for study and in organizing the data they gather In working out these problems. The teacher who goes to her work determined to put these twp^ldeas Into practice will certainly b^l(jpald by the Increased Interest and industry she will secure from her implls .Make a boy understand his work and see some practical u.-:e In It and he wants to study. P. S. Hennett has workmen busy fixing u]) the Clinker club building which he recently bought and expects to occupy as a home. The five young men who have been lodging there, after frenzied efforts to secure another hou.>^e, are preparing to scatter to different places of refuge. The club itself Is undecided whether to rent a house In town or lease a hall. but will reach some decision soon. / A man who travels over Kansas -says that the lola Portland plant here and the mill at LeHunt, belonging to the United Kansas, are the only cement plants operating in Kansas, and tliere are thirteen plants in the state. Recalling that only a few weeks ago, not over five, the cement business was one o fthe most profitable In the \Ve.=;t, the chai :so is certainly strik» iii.g. —Without opiates or harmful drugs of any kind Foley's Honey -and Tar Compound stops coughs and cures colds.

So if you have not attend ed to this matter you will be wise to tie a string around your finger and not delay much longer. Taxes have been pouring In at a lively rate the past week but there are a good many people who have not yet paid.

RECEIVERS FOR THE WSH Bi^ Hailrnnd Syslrni Cannot I'n; Interest on Konded Debt. " (By the Associated Prcs.s) St. Louis, Mo., Dec. m.—Receivers will take charge of the Wabash railroad as soon as they appear before .ludge Elmer B. Adams in United States Circuit court and qualify by giving a three hundred thousand dollar bond each. These bonds must be given In ten days. Henry Miller vice president and general manager of the road in a statement today says the receivership In no way will effect the operation of the road which has sixteen thuosand employes. A St. Louis dispatch to the morning papers states that a receivership has been asked for and granted the Wabash Railroad. The Westinghouse Airbrake Company, which has a claim against the road of a large sum, asked for the receivership, the officers of the road joining In the petition. Bond Interest coming due in .lanuary is said to have urged them to this action. President Delano and Vice President Pryor. of the Wabash, and W. K. lllx- by, of the Westinghouse company, are the receivers. The Wabash Is a Gould road and is bonded for JlH.OOO.OOn, one of the heaviest, per mile, bond Issues In the country. I>ast year the road showed a deficit of $403 ,01)0. It Is said (hat $7 .."t0O.O00 Is needed at once to provide equipment to make the road first class and capable of earning dividends. The receivership has been rumored for some time and refumllng four per cent bonds have been stalling at fitfy cents on the dollar. WILL NOT LET SHUSTER LEAVE IVrsian Counc'l Insist Tliul He Hold His Job. !! Watch Your Coal Bill !! Teheran, Dec. IS.—The national council has refused to accept the cabinet's proposals regarding a solution of tho Russian difficulty and the Russian troo;)s are preparing to advance I on the capital. 1 In siiite of his appeals the deputies insisted that he retention of Mr. Shuster was Persia's only hoi)e, and that nothing was to be gained by yielding. It is believed that the Russian advance will begin Thursday. The ^w^i- are apathetic and only the women continue an active boycott. The official altiude suggests passive resistance, but the provincial sen timent is strongly opposed to the Rus- .•^ians. The former shah, •.Mohammed .\11 .Mirza Is at Gumesii Tepe. The foreign minister in j)resenting the question before the national coun- c.l today, made a determined attempt to get the support of the council. He represented that the cabinet had made e\ery effort to retain Mr. Sinister but the plight of the country was desperate. The former shah, he said, was advancing on the one hand, and Salar Kd ii.iwleh (in the other, while Russia refused to abate her demands. Therefore he argued, the cabinet should be empowered to conciliate Russia. Have j'ou ever had p<'casIon to become indignant at a newspaper man and come away from the Inlervlew with a deep conviction that the .N'. .M. was so hardened In sin that It was a waste of breath to make protest? Many doubtless have. Yet the fact is that the .N". .M. Is very alert fo suggestions and criticisms but he knows he will get them no matier how blameless he is anil so ho becomes hardened To Illustrate: Last t^venlng the writer was given a vague hint, gentle but unmistakable, that the Register might not tote fair In announcing the votes on the free Christmas tree. Think of It! All the Register gefs out of (he whole affair is the trouble of caring for and counting the votes. No pay; no honor; no thanks! The surprising prevalence of willingness to suspect your fellow man of bolng a contemptible whelp, too little In soul and honor to be visible to the naked eys. proves but one thing: ^lany people believe themselves caj*able of such littleness; otherwise the thought could not come to them. Lowney's Candy at Mundis. A Parsons man was In lola recently and when asl^ed why the newspapers there made so poor a showing in the way of advertising, he said that It was because the dominant spirit among the business men- was to "milk" the railroad payroll Instead of pushing the town and reaching out for trade.
