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 business. 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 in hygiene. 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 liberal education. At 9 = 30 , one of the most successful meet ings ever held in the county adjourned to meet in McCook early in January , 1891. ASSOCIATION NOTES.
