STATE EDUCATOKS MEET, Att Ihtelli(?cnt ftesnme of the Gathering of Teachers at Des Moines Last Week. What They Did and How They Did It— A Large Attendance Coupled with Much Enthusiasm. was The Iowa State Teachers' association of 1891-2 Is a thing of the past. Its members have scattered to their homes in the various portions of the state, carrying with them, generally, the impression that the work done this year, both in quantity and quality, exceeds that of any previous session, and that the results can he none other than beneficial in a large degree to the educational system of Iowa. The attendance was the largest in its history although the enrollment, numbering 728, is less than that of 1889-90, 800. Especial effort was made then to have teachers enroll their names, a thing which many fail to do, unless particularly urged, as the enrollment fee is one dollar, and anyone nii'.v get the full benefit of the literary part of the proceedings without enrol lltijj. They are restricted only in the busiuuBS part, boing debarred from voting upon and discussing the questions that are brought up in business (meetings. The attendance at the Savory house, 4he headquarters of the association, was unusually large, the manager, Mr. W. F. Brown, a genial gentleman who •knows how to "run a hotel" and is •rapidly increasing the business of that popular house, informing mo that the prose; mathematics, alpabrft, through quadratics, plain and solid geometry; English, ability to write an essay showing knowledge of eight works of leading authors, free from errors of spelling, grammar, and punctuation ; science, physical geography, physics, chemistry, bo'tany, zoology, geology, astronomy. political economy, drawing.- This plan given in touch fuller detail endorsed unanimously last October. The format opening of the general association was held Tuesday evening in the presence of all who could crowd into the Y. M. C. A. auditorium, a room entirely inadequate for the occasion. The local committee were very unfortunate in their selection of rooms for the use of thedifferentdeparttnents, all of them being entirely too small. The address of the president, Prof. H. H. Freer of Cornell college, abounded in excellent ideas, and Pi-egret that in a short article it is impossible to give an extended notice of any one of the good papers that were presented during the two following days. The association met in a body during Wednesday forenoon and in tlie afternoon the different departments went to their respective rooms and carried out separate programmes. In the evening an address by State Superintendent Andrew S. Draper of New York was listened to. His subject was "The Public System and General Education." He criticised the generally accepted definition of education, viz: That it is the harmonious development of the 'whole ' man, mentally, morally, and physically, and showed quite conclusively that an ..... TRAVELING BY IN LONDC indications were such that they did not feel warranted in oven providing for the number of guests that they had last year, and behold they were at least a third greater. Notwithstanding this all were royally entertained. The work of the educational system •of Iowa is of such a varied nature that An order to enter into detail, it has be•come necessary to divide the work into aepartments, and at the present meeting the following were the divisions: 1. Elementary and graded department. (a) Superintendent and principal's section. man might be harmoniously developed in all of these and still be far from a good neighbor and citizen and consequently of use to mankind. In regard to the work of the public school system, his idea was that if at any time there was unusual care taken and extra expense incurred it should be in the first years of the, work, that the idea that anybody could teach primary should take a back seat. Prof. T. H. McBride of the state university read an interesting paper on the Iowa exhibit to the Columbian exposition. It made suggestions which were founded on an experience procured at Madison in '84 at the national association and at New Orleans at the World's Fair, where he had charge of this department of the exhibit. He urgently insisted that it should be of the best quality, largo in quantity, of a uniform and harmonious character.

Among the many excellent preparations on his shelves may be mentioned Chamberlain's Cougn Remedy, a favorite during the Winter months on account of its great success m the cure of colds. There is nothing that will loosen a severe cold so quickly, or so promptly relieve the lungs. Then it counteracts any tendency toward pneumonia. It is pleasant and safe to talcc, and fully worthy of its popularity. Knows It to Be tollable. Dr. R. L. St. John of Rowland, Putnam county, Missouri, takes especial pleasure in recommending Chamberlain's Cough Remedy because he knows it to be reliable. He has used it in his practice for several years and says there is none better. It is especially valuable for colds and as a preventive and cure for croup. This most excellent remedy is sold by F. W.

In the future the latter will constitute a section of the elementary tuid graded department, making but four general departments that are entitled to elect members of the educational council, a body consisting in the future Of 30 members, whose duty it is to discuss general educational topics and formulate the outline of work to be done in the different departments. They occupy the first day of the three that the association is in session. The first subject discussed by them at this meeting was one that is of especial interest to tho high schools of the state, in the bearing which it has upon the question of admission of high school graduates to the freshman class in the different colleges and the stuto university. The paper was presented toy Prof. Currier of the state university. . It was the report of a committee appointed by the council to discuss thoroughly the cjusstion of "what shall ; nrecede the American university'!"' The gist of the i eport is as follows: 1. The chief educational system should consist of tho following departments in order. (a) High scho:>l. (b) College. (c) University. The high school should contribute to the college, and the college to the university, and tho course of study of each to supplement tho other, and together form a complete whole. / (The plan as discussed is an excellent one if it can be curried out, that is, if the colleges would accept the place assigned them and make the proper requirements from the high school graduates it would make it possible for school boards to formulate a course of study for their high schools that would bo acceptable to a far greater number of of the state was quite large, and will suggest many things to the teachers that should culminate in a display in 93 that will exceed anything that we have had yet. Many a time did the thought occur while looking at the various exhibits and listening to ex- prqsstons of the best thought, how can any teacher say that he cannot afford to go to the meeting. Rather should he say " how can I afford not to go?" At the closing session the nominating committee reported County Superintendent Hacker of Franklin county as their candidate for president for next year, and the report was unanimously adopted. The committee on resolutions made a voluminous report of which the following perhaps are of the most interest to the general public: That there is urgent need in the state of u second normal school. That this association fully realizes the responsibility of the state and society in the matter of providing an educated citizenship, and that both justice to the tax-payers, who support our public school system, and the future safety of our republic demand the adoption of such legislation as will insure the attendance, under proper regulations at our public schools, of all the youth of our state.• That this association again reaffirms their patrons than they can at present.) < The high school men discussed their side of tho question at a later time and embodied the prevailing sentiment in the following resolutions: Be it resolved, That it is tho souse of this department that tlioro is nood of a system of inspection by which our high schools shall be stimulated to more thorough and more uniform work in thoso courses of study looking toward college entrance. (3) That we endorse tho changes lii requirements for college entrance recommended by tho schoolmasters' round table of eastern Iowa. , (3) That wo disapprove of the classification of nigh schools on any other bitsis than uiat of actual work done us determined by uniform examinations, The second resolution requires a little explanation. A year ago tlio state association appointed a committee of college and high school men to discuss the question and report upon H plan by which there might bo closer connection between our colleges anil high schools They did so, reporting to the different "Teacher's Round Tables," who discussed tho report thoroughly boforo tho meeting of tlio general association. The following resolutions formulated ••i>y the round table of eastern Towa, were adopted at DCS Moiuos as indicated by their second resolution. These resolutions in substance are: We disapprove of tho attempt to make the high school course moot the requirements for college admission. It pays a premium on tho extension of tlio hirfi school courses beyond tho facilities teaching power of tho average school. But some schools do more work than others, a he university cau accept high school work BO fur as it goes. The schools can bo classed, those which do all the required work, thoso which' do part, those which fit for one course in the university Schools can bo put ou the accepted list under these heads. The university can examine their work, and furnish them a syllabus of the university examinations. We recommend that requirements for admission to the " ' • belief that school districts "should""be allowed the privilege of furnishing textbooks to the pupils m their schools at public expense thus making our public schools free to all. Wo believe such policy to be in the interest of economy, and in harmony with the public good. That we heartily endorse the recommendation of the Iowa Columbian commission that an appropriation of $20,000 be made by tho general assembly for the exhibit of tho educational facilities of the state at the World's Fair in 1893, and we bespeak tho earnest and harmonious cooperation of all the educational forces of the state toward making such exhibit worthy or our educated and progressive commonwealth. That while deeming all the recommendations of .Superintendent Sabin, contained in his biennial report, to bo worthy of careful consideration, wo especially approve and endorse tho following: That no one should bo eligible to office of county superintendent who does not hold a state certificate, a diploma or some credential from a reputable college or normal school, equal in value, in the estimation of the board of examiners to such testimonials as an evidence or scholarship; that five years of experience preceding the election bo required, und that looking to the elimination of the county suporintondency from county politics, the time and manner of election be changed, I hat the term of office of the township board of directors be lengthened to three The Lord Told Her to Sine. The Baptist chapel at Leytonstone was crowded on Sunday because of an announcement that Madam Antoinette Sterling would sing during the service She not only sang, but at the prayer meeting which followed'joined in prayer and delivered a short address. It may not be generally known that the famous contralto is a believer in the doctrine ol the Inward Light A pretty story is told about her in tins connection. She was present at oni- ul the (Quaker meetings at Devonshire square, and the brethren and sisters remained some -long time without the spirit moving any of them to utterance At last Madam Sterling got up and sang "O Rest in the Lord," which created no small stir. The clerk afterward approached her, and said, "Thee knowest sister, it's against -the rules; but if the Lord telleth thee to sing, thee must!' It was probably through her recollection of this incident that Mrs. Margaret Lacy, the sister of that old tribune of the people, John Bright, called in he.r last illness for "the singing sister." Needless to say, Madam Sterling went -British Weekly Getting Oil from Smoke. It appears that in Scotland there is a company which pays a certain amount yearly to a number of iron works for the privilege of collecting the smoke and gases from the blast furnaces. Thi?se are passed through several miles' of wrought iron tubing, and as the gases cool there is deposited a considerable yield of oil; one plant is reported to yield 25,000 gallons of furnace oil per week. The sum paid for this privilege is such as to be profitable, it is said, to both parties. The oil thus obtained -is distilled. and a considerable quantity of cresol, phenol and ,soine other substances are procured from it, while the oil remaining is used as an enricher of gas for illuminating purposes.—New York Sun.
