To -THE TEACHEKS, GREETING: The Institute corps of instructors contains more educational specialists than ever 1 before assembled at /any preceding session during our. administration. The most mqdgpx. ap- )_j_:. i .j m etiio'as qf teaching the various academic branches''will /be ex-';^ ed^ and;inany f valuable.-featureS* not ••heretofore aiatroeluced?Tviij ; ; form a conspicuous portion of the daily program, ; :> ' ./ ;< Prof. Gilchrist, the father of the normal school movement-in Iowa, by his long continued experience in this line of duty, is one of the -strongest members of the f acuity* He is honored at home and abroad for his scholastic attainments and is too widely known to need .any further introduction here. English grammar he handles like a charm, and renders the popular fad, child study, in a most fascinating way. Prof. Young, of Pipestone, Minn., for several years one qf, the most prominent educational workers of that state, is in constant demand by the Iowa superintendents for his services.' He is warmly endorsed by State Superintendent Sabin, who vouches for his usual success. Mr. Young has the happy faculty of presenting his specialties so that the interest never wanes. We were only able to secure him for the first two weeks. A. W. Rich, professor of Arithmetic in the state normal school at. Cedar Falls, will set you to work within three seconds after he appears before you. Something will happen immediately and often. Do. your resting before you come for he has the reputation of only breathing between recitations. This branch is his hobby and he is a master of it 01 he could'never hold his present position. He was for ten years associated with Prof. Breckenridge at Decorah, which fact alone is a guarantee of his ability. Miss Crowe comes fresh from her labors in the Chicago city schools where she has been engaged in Primary work for several years. Her unbounded success during the time she was supervisor of Primary Methods at Joliet, caused her promotion to the post of honor which she now holds. She has already ordered several classes of children organized and placed at her disposal*at the Institute, :,Prof. Augsburg, Supervisor of Drawing at Salt Lake City, Utah, is the author of a work on drawing that is taking the whole country by storm. His magazine articles on that subject are attracting attention even in the Old World. He makes radical departure from the old ruts. Every teacher ought to know something about this art, for it is a great help in teaching any branch. He will be present only the last week. Mrs, Barber's reappearance before the teachers, wJll be received with delight. No better work in her line was ever accomplished here than the result of her labors a few years ago. She is truly an expert specialist and one of the most valuable instructors we could secure. Knowing the ^igh character of her entertainments, we have given her the valedictory of the course and she will close with monologues and posing* Prof, Swift's scientific exhibition on the wonders of the microscope and telescope is one of real merit and genuine excellence. Nothing of the kind has ever before been presented in, Algona, The apparatus uged in the projection cost more than $3,000 ana has been used by him in public work more than twenty-five years, Capt;. Scbwaff's lecture entitled The Sir John Franklin Belie? JJxpedi* ' tion, will be graphically delivered by this famous Russian orator, Mayor Haggard consents to deliver the address of welcome from a sense of duty, Although making no pretence, to public speaking, yet his words will have the true auctioneer ringi Miss Richard's appointment to represent tbe teachers in their re* sponse to the addresj, waa urged by * large aumber of frieijds who felt she was entitled to jfte recognition, jf she sustains her usual repu&a- i^pn fop public delivery, a rich treat may be expected.
