County Teachers' Meeting : .
The Red Willow county teachers' as
sociation met in the Bust ward school
building in McCook , Saturday morning.
The president of the association , who
lives in the east end of the .county , was
notable to be here at ten o'clock , and
the meeting was opened at eleven , with
over thirty teachers in attendance.
The exercises were opened by the
singing of "America. " The first paper ,
"Methods of Teaching Literature in the
Elementary Grades" by Miss KHa Leonard -
ard of McCook was an excellent one and
should have called forth a lively discus
sion as many of the ideas presented were
somewhat in advance of the methods
practiced in our district schools. The
paper on "Recess ; How to Make it Inter
esting and Profitable , " by Kathlyn
Duffy treated the subject from the standpoint -
point of the district school and contained
many valuable hints. Prof. Hendee of
Bartley , heading the discussion , main
tained that recess in grades above the
sixth tended to distract the minds of the
pupils and allowed them opportunities
to plan mischief , therefore was detri
mental. Prof. Caviness argued with
Prof. Hendee advocating shorter school
hours and no recess. Mr. Longnecker
argued that it might be made a valuable
aid in teaching amiability and a proper
regard for personal rights , if properly
overlooked by the teacher. Mrs. Cordeal
called the grade teacher's attention to
the fact that the graded school could be
no criterion for the district school ; that
it would be manifestly unjust to allow
an ungraded school with children of dif
ferent ages to go without recess ; that it
might be made a means of recreation for
the younger ones , and of sociability and
mutual aid for the teacher and older
"Literature for Teachers" this sub
ject was handled in a masterly way by
Prof. Hendee of Bartley. After showing
the necessity for particular literature for
all the profession , he advised teachers to
first fill their minds with our best standard -
ard literature of the past. Johnson , Addison -
dison , Dickens. Moore , Scott , Burns ,
"Morley's Men of Letters" , Macaulay ,
Thackeray , Shakespeare etc. , then to
provide themselves with the best educa
tional journals , as well as the standard
magazines. Prof. Caviness , leading the
discussion , advised keeping up with the
times by following our best living
authors , discriminating between the
good and that which was likely to be of
transient use such as "Robert Elsniere , "
"Trilby" etc. Mrs. Cordeal agreed with
Prof. Hendee that there was nothing
equal to the older standard literature as
a foundation upon which to build all
literary attainment , but while admitting
that much of our modern literature is
somewhat evanescent in character , that
there is very little we can afford to miss ,
as it has Us own use today , although it
may die tomorrow. "Quo Vadis" may
not live forever , but as an aid to the
student of Roman history it has its
value in its portrayal of Nero's character
and the staunch faith of the early Chris
tians. Our magazines , no doubt contain
much that is useless , but they also con
tain the best from living writers. The
Atlantic Monthly being especially valu
able to teachers on account of the arti
cles on modern education by our most
Miss Ray of Danbury not having ar
rived yet , an adjournment to dinner was
announced. The teachers of McCook
and the twelfth grade of the High
school served dinner to the visiting
teachers in the basement of the school
house. About forty teachers were enter
tained. Chicken pie , cranberry sauce ,
vegetables , coffee , cake 'and fruit con
stituted the menu. The twelfth grade
deserves great credit for the satisfactory
manner in which it was served.
The afternoon session was called to
order by the president and Miss Brinton
appointed secretary pro teui. , in the ab
sence of the regular secretary.
Miss Ray's paper on "Methods in
Geography" contained many excellent
thoughts , but called forth no discussion.
The paper on "Self Improvement" by
Miss Bertha Lincoln ot McCook was
spicy and to the point , containing much
that would be useful to teachers. All
seeming to agree with Miss Lincoln , no
discussion of any moment resulted.
Miss Ora Smith of Indianola not being
present , her subject of "Scientific Tem
perance in Elementary Schools" was
taken up for discussion. Prof. Hendee
was in favor of teaching temperance by
showing the injurious results of narcotics
and alcohol by scientific experiments ,
arguing that pupils witnessing the re
sults would be warned against their use.
Prof. Caviness , on the contrary , advised
having the discussion of these subjects
out of the schools as pupils were prone
to draw their conclusions from the ex
amples around them , and to doubt the
veracity of text books whose conclusions
seem to be refuted in every day life.
Miss Berry thought that reproofs and
lectures on these subjects did more harm
than good , and that we must reach the
pupils by other means , such as higher
ideas , the good and the beautiful ; that
we should point out and lead up to a
life of cleanliness , decency and purity ,
not by lectures and faultfinding but by a
gradual cultivation of the higher ideals.
As this subject proved verv interesting
and likely to take too much time , the
president called for the next paper.
"Ethics ; How Taught , " by Miss Eliz
abeth Thomson of McCook. This was a
very excellent paper , and after a short
speech by Rev. Turner on the same sub
ject , who emphasized Miss Thomson's
views , it was discussed by several of
the teachers present , great stress being
placed on the idea that outward form
must be combined with motive or intent.
Children should be taught politeness
and kindness as well.
Mr. Stilgebouer not being present , the
subject of his paper , "Civil Govern
ment , " was deferred till another time.
Unfortunately , Miss Welborn , our
county superintendent , was able to be
present only a short time , because of an
examination of teachers which she was
conducting in the court house. When
called upon for a few remarks she ex
cused herself by pleading the lateness of
the hour and the long distance to be
traversed by many of the teachers pres
ent. A little business came before the
meeting which then adjourned to meet
in Indianola some time in January.
