THE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION
In response to the call of President Stilge-
bouer , the teachers of Red Willow county held
the Autumn meeting of their association at
Danbury on Saturday , October I ith. The vil
lage on the Beaver distinguished itself by
spreading a bountiful dinner in the hall and
inviting all present to partake of its hospitality.
From twelve o'clock until two , the good ladies
of the town and surrounding country were
kept closely occupied in dispensing necessar
ies and luxuries to the pedagogues and other
guests , after which the meeting was called to
order at the school house , President Stilgebouer
in the chair. The room was tastefully decora
ted with house plants and was crowded to the
door. The exercises began with music by an
excellent choir of local musicians. Prof. Smith
of Bartley invoked the divine blessing on the
assembly and the meeting settled down to
Mr. E. E. Devoe of Lebanon opened the dis
cussion with a brief account of his method of
teaching United States' History , showing an
interesting and practical plan for reviews.
Miss Ally Gale followed with "A Plea forthe
Spelling Book , " taking the ground that the
'New Education , " with all its vast improve-
nents over the old , was neglecting that very
important branch oral spelling. The speak
er took the ground that the spelling school of
: he past generations accomplished a great work
n this line which was not appreciated by mod
ern teachers who suffered the pupils to pass
out of their schools with various accomplish-
nents but unable to spell common English
vords. Prof. Smith of Bartley rose to reply ,
assuming that since no business re
quired oral spelling , pupils should not be re-
[ uired to practice so useless an art. Miss Gale
cleverly defended her thesis.
Next on the programme appeared Miss Lil
ian Knotts of Indianola with a brilliant
> aper on "Primary Reading. " Miss Knotts
dvocated the " \Yord Method" and her ad-
Iresswell illustrated the improvements that
re being made in the training of young child-
en in our common schools.
Prof. Smith , the new principal of the Indian-
la schools , was the next in order on the pro-
ramme , but he failed to respond.
Mrs. Tucker of Lincoln , whose institute
vork , last summer , created so favorable an
mpression in this county , had contributed a
vitty paperon "A Rainy Day in School"which
vas read in a pleasant and appreciative man
ner by Miss Hart of McCook.
Then Mr. J. H. Fowler of Gerver precinct
presented a carefully prepared essay on "Cur
rent Events" which was well received. Mrs.
Nettleton , the county superintendent , follow
ed with an earnest , thoughtful address on "The
Condition of Our District Schools" and was
listened to with great interest. The superin
tendent's devotion to her work and well-
known enthusiasm in all that pertains to her
office were displayed in every phrase of her
remarks. Prof. Smith of Bartley concluded
the programme with a talk on physiology and
made a strong plea for more and better work
The business of the association was then
considered. Mr. Piper of Box Elder moved
that the next meeting be held in January at
McCook , seconded by Mr. Valentine who
promised a hearty welcome from the citizens
and city teachers. This motion carried unani
mously and the meeting adjourned to the hall
where a splendid supper was served by the
tireless ladies of Danbury who wearied not
in good works.
At 8 o'clock the school house was again
crowded to the door and after music by the
choir and a brief address by the president , Mr.
Valentine talked to young men and women on
' 'The Means of Intellectual Culture which Lie
Close at Hand , " and advocated the systematic
reading of the patent insides of the county
newspaper , Agricultural Column , Scientific
Column , Foreign news and Home news. The
speaker concluded with an urgent appeal to
the teachers present to pursue the work of the
State Reading Circle and to neglect no one
of the many opportunities offered to obtain a
At 9 = 30 , one of the most successful meet
ings ever held in the county adjourned to meet
in McCook early in January , 1891.
Danbury hospitality will be proverbial after
this among Red Willow county teachers.
McCook sent the largest delegation : Mr.
Valentine , Mr. Bayston , Miss Berry , Mrs
Brown , Miss Jessen , Miss Myers , Miss Hart ,
Miss Clark , Miss Gale and Miss Meserve.
Mr. Morley Piper of Box Elder made the
longest journey to attend the meeting.
Hon. S. W. Stilgebouer and family won the
friendship of all the visitors.
Indianola was represented by one delegate ,
Miss Lillian Knotts.
Prof. William Smith of Bartley is a faithful
worker in all the meetings.
The McCook teachers returned , Sunday
noon , tired but enthusiastic over their recep
tion and treatment by their Danbury friends.
