The County Teachers’ Institute
Which Took Place During the Chautauqua
tn accordance with the desire]
of the Richardson county teach*!
ers at their meeting last April,
Superintendent Oliver held the
institute in conjunction with the
Aside from this innovation
there were a number of others,
some of which are destined, in
all probability, to become perma
nent features of the institute.
Among these new features may
be mentioned the following: The
absence of bookishness incident
to holding it on the Chautauqua
grounds far away from the musty
wails of the school room. In
struction was inspired by the lec
ture method entirely. The selec
tion of special instructors in Bible
study and in library requirements
was a feature. School men who
are candidates forthe state super
intendency were introduced.
The open walls of the auditor
ium afforded at least one unde
sirable temptation, especially to
the younger teachers. The call
of the green was so insistent that
many absented themselyesduring
the lectures. A roll call would
probably not have found at the
various lectures an average at
tendance of more than one-half
the number of teachers enrolled.
The regular institute instruc
tors were I)r. J. A. Beattie of
Cottier University, Bethany, Neb.
and Mr. R. H. Graham, superin
tendent of city schools, Wymore
Beginning at about eight o’clock
these lecturers spoke alternately
for half-hour periods until ten
o’clock. Dr. Beattie presented
principles of education and points
in history, while Mr. Graham
spoke on reading and grammar,
Dr. Beattie needed no introduc
tion to Richardson county teach
ers, as he has been an instructor
on similar subjects two years be
fore His wide and long experi
ence has eminently fitted him for
institute work. He excells in the
exceedingly clear presentation of
his subjects. Mr. Graham has
eleven years of successful experi
ence to his credit. He enlarges
upon his subjects in a most de
lightful and pleasing manner.
Both Dr. Beattie and Mr. Gra
ham made good as institute lec
Each morning shortly after ten
o’clock, Dr. James Batten, plat
form manager for the Chautau
qua, would deliver a Bible lecture.
'Pile series of lectures comprised
the following: ‘ The Book and
tuc Believer;” “How God inspired
the Word; ’ “What the Book does
and does not claim for Itself ”
"Prophecies;” “Miracles.” Rev.
Batten labored under considera
ble difficulty inasmuch as he had
to shorten liis lectures by at least
one-half. The vote of thanks
given him at the close indicated
the appreciation of the teachers
for his sane and clear presenta
tion of a difficult subject.
Just before noon, Miss Lois
Spcnccr of this city, gave a talk
on libraries and library work in
its many phases. She spoke on
the selection of books, the me
chanical preparation of books for
circulation, the care of books in
circulation, and a number ot oth
er subjects connected with circu
lating libraries. Miss Spencer
presented her subjects objectively
and interested a large number of
teachers even though her period
came just before the dinner hour.
The superintendents o f other
counties will make no mistake in
securing Miss Spencer if they
wish to work up the library spirit
in their respective counties. The
reports of teachers using circulat
ing school libraries were very
favorable. The work is no long
er an experiment in this county.
James E- Delzell, superintend
ent of the Lexington city schools
and candidate for state superin
tendent at the republican pri
maries, spoke brietly upon educa
tional matters. He said, how
ever, he was not traveling over
the state for nothing and received
the assurance, more or less com
forting perhaps, that many of
those present had not yet pledged i
Father Lohren of Dawson, also
gave an interesting address, a re
port of which appears in the Chau
tauqua summary in another
column of this paper.
The school journal solicitor
made their inevitable appear
ance in the persons of
Mr. Weber ami Kx-Superin
tendent Fowler, the latter ad
dressing the institute.
The round table talks were
scheduled for four o’clock, but
after two or three meetings, were
abandoned for various reasons,
chief among which were the in
tolerable buzz around the build
ing and the lateness of the after
On Saturday morning the in
stitute gave way for a meeting of
the Richardson county teachers'
association, at which Mr. Hodapp
principal of Verdon schools, was
elected president and Cora Hill,
principal of Shubert schools, Vice
President, for the coming year.
Supt. Oliver is ex-officio secreta
ry-treasurer of the organization.
With these officers it is hoped
that the affairs of the association
may be carried on in a business
like and efficient manner.
A majority of the teachers seem
to be in favor of the plan whereby
the institute is held with the
Chautauqua. A large number
favor the old plan. Possibly a
good compromise might be struck
by alternating the two plans
from year to year.
Under the new plan it is notice
able that the leadership of asso
ciation affairs and of most insti
tute matters is in the hands of the
Supt. Oliver has not expressed
himself as unqualifiedly in favor
of the new method of holding the
institute. All beginnings are
difficult and the superintendent
is to be congratulated upon the
success achieved in this first trial
of the new plan.

ENTERTAINS GOLDENROD CLUB
All Members are Former Residents
The following taken from the
Missoula, Mont. Herald will be
of interest to our readers, as it
refers to Mrs- O. H. Maddox and
Miss Grace Maddox, who have so
many friends here. The Golden
rod club is made up entirely of
members from Nebraska:
“Mr. and Mrs. H- T. Gardiner
entertained the Goldenrod club in
a royal manner last evening at
at their home on Poplar street.
A large number were present and
a delightful evening was spent.
Mrs. J. C. Orr charmed all pres
ent with her beautiful instrument
al selections. Numbers were al
so given by Mrs. Maddox, Miss
Grace Maddox and Miss Val
entine, which added much to
the pleasure of the evening. The
hostess, in her charming way
served fruit, punch and home
made cookies—the kind mother
used to make—which melted in
your mouth. The Gardiner
house was one prolusion of sweet
peas and each parting guest was
given a large boquet of them.
All in all, it was a meeting to be
long remembered by the natives
of the Goldenrod state.”

In the horse show held at Rulo
Thursday, the riding horse be*
longing to Joe Miles, Jr., won
first place, while the fine driving
team of Benschoter & Doerner’s
won second. That white team is
a dandy and it must have been a
beauty that won first place.
