The total enrollment at the Northwestern Teachers' association last week was 540. Many from near by did not enroll and many county teachers were not out at all. Of the 546 over 376 were from outside of the county, a remarkably large attendance. The weather was line, the town was decorated, the armory furnished the biggest and best headquarters the association lias yet had, the citizens were lavish In their hospitality, the music was good, everything went off well, and everybody went away pleased. The visitors did not leave it to their formal resolutions to express their gratification. Eacli one resolved himself into a resolution committee and notified everybody that Algona had done the right thing and that he was glad ho came. Tho formal opening of the meeting occurred Thursday evening at the opera house. Friday evening the Algona teachers tendered a reception at the Methodist church. The day meetings were held in all the churches, the closing business meeting being held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Congregational church. GOV. SHAW'S ADDRESS. The feature of the opening session of the convention was Gov. Shaw's attendance. No governor of Iowa has over taken the interest in educational matters that he has, and no governor has been able to talk better or more entertainingly to teachers. Although a graduate of Cornell college and a member of the board of trustees he is one of the most active members of the board of state university regents. He talked here very Informally but with an aptness of illustration and with a practicalness of suggestion that made what he said the main feature of the program. The program opened with an address of welcome by E. B. Butler, president of the board. Mr. Butler has a reputation for saying the right thing at the right time, and he fully maintained it in a very clever welcome to the teachers. H. E. Kratz of Sioux City responded for the teachers, and 'Gov. Shaw was introduced. The governor laid special stress upon making mills to grind grain and not granaries to hold grain out of students. In other words it is important that they be taught to think and not so important that they be taught to remember. The governor also urged that men hold part of the teaching field, for the boys especially ought at some period in their development to be brought into contact with the masculine mind. Prof. C. P. Colgrovo of the Cedar Falls normal school gave the address of the evening, a well-written and well-delivered discussion of some of the problems of the hour with teachers. SUPT. BARRETT FOR CENTRAL SCHOOL SYSTEM. Friday evening Stale Superintendent Barrett talked at the Methodist church. lie took for his subject "Moving Time," and the burden of his remarks was that the educator must keep up with the procession and improve. In this connection he advocated the central township school, and gave facts and figures concerning the experiment at Buffalo Center, where it is being tried. Inasmuch as Prof. A. A. Sifert is principal of the school the experiment has a local interest. Prof. Sifert had pholographs of his fine big school building with iho four hacks that bring in the children, standing in front. Supt. Barrett stated thai children were brought to school as far as six miles, that they had a full graded school to attend, with charts and ample equipment, the building heated and properly ventilated, and still the township as a whole was saving $60 a month over the old township school system. Ho read letters from the county superintendent of Winnebago county highly endorsing the plan of central schools, and gave it as his own opinion that the central school must come all over Iowa. Supt. Barrett is a pleasing speaker, ready in off hand repartee, and alive to his work. His address was practical and entertaining. Leslie Lewis, for 82 years assistant superintendent of the Chietigo city schools, made the formal address of the evening urging the need of the public school in the development of good citizens. His points were thai the public school brings all to one language, removes sectarian intolerance, and destroys social caste, all essential to continued good citizenship in a republic. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. Prof. N. Spencer of the Algona schools was chosen president of the association. Everybody appreciated his untiring efforts to make the meeting a success here, and the honor was conferred with hearty good will. D. M. O'Dell of Hull was chosen vice president, Agnes Robertson of Cherokee, secretary, and H. E. Kratz of Sioux City chairman of the executive committee. It was recommended that the next meeting be held in Sioux City. SPEAR NUMBER WORK. The event of chief interest lu the day programs was the exhibition of Spear number work by Misa Hattie Stephens and some of her pupils. Mrs. Weldell of Sioux City was present and had four pupile from her school with her to also exhibit what can b$ done. Mr- Heisey, who represents the system on the road, told several the meeting was done that ije never seen » finer exhibition, Stephens and her ol&js teresting paper, "Grammar in the Graded Schools," and Miss Mclntyre was elected president of the primary section of the association. THE SAO OITY-ALGONA LINE. A Late Minneapolis View—Likely That the Northwestern Will Build Soon. The Minneapolis Tribune, under the head of railroads, discusses matters of local interest as follows: If the main object of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway company in extending its system to the southwest was the securing of the shortest line between Minneapolis and Omaha, It is not likely that it will long be allowed to retain the advantage. The roads which are occupping the territory between the two cities named, especially the Northwestern, are not looking on the encroachments of the lively Minneapolis line with marked favor. On the contrary, the Northwestern has discour- nged every move the Minneapolis & St. Louis has made In projecting the new line, contracts for which have just been let. That company Is nothing if not aggressive, and the probabilities are that by the time the Minneapolis & St. Louis line has its line completed to Omaha the Northwestern will have n new line between the two cities just as short, or shorter, than the Minneapolis company's. There are many signs which bear out the above statement. At Jewell junction, an important point of the Northwestern system in northwestern Iowa, the company has stored thousands of tons of new eteel, enough, it is said, to build 200 miles of road. The company is now building a "cut off" between Denison, on the main line, and Wall Lake, from which point there is a Northwestern line to Sac City, extending the direction of Minneapolis. Some work has also been done in the northern part of the slate near Algona. Between Sao City and Algona, which are points almost on a direct lino between Minneapolis and Omaha, the distance is only about 50 miles. From Algona there is a line almost direct to Minneapolis, the route being over the Northwestern tracks to the main line of the Omaha line at Lake Crystal, a few miles south of Mankato.' When the short pieces of track are built, which are necessary to connect up the short route, the Northwestern line will have as short a line between Minneapolis and Omaha as any decent railroad could wish, Moreover, it could give patrons the choice of two routes.

Barrett in his address to the touchers Friday night urged new state normal schools, The teachers of the state are urging them. They are bound to come, and in this connection the Wesley News says: " LeMars is already laying the political wires for a state normal school. In this great year of prosperity and with surplus in the state treasury, we would think Algona would be doing something in that' line. With their new lines of road and their natural location, they certainly have a fighting chance. Nothing within reach would be of so great a benefit to the whole county." THE UPPEB DES MOINES has long belieyed that Algona would get a state normal school when a real, well planned effort is made. It is not too early to plan now, and the very first step is to select one of our ablest, most energetic, and most influential citizens for representative. This is a good thing to be thinking-about now that many names art) being suggested. HI IT Stock Shipments. The northern Iowa division of the Northwestern handled 367 cars of stock Sunday, April 30.
