The Teachers' Association met at Fre
mont, Tuesday, March 27. The meeting
was opened in the evening by an address
of welcome by Hon. W. A. Mario w, ma'
ov of Fremont. This was responded to
by Prof. C. B. Palmer, President. We regret
that we were not able to reach Fremont
in time to hear the address of Chancellor
Fairfield of the State University. We
understand, however, that the Chancellor
made a strong argument ou the subject,
"Learning an''. Labor," proving conclu-' ers returned
sivcly that labor and learning am insepa
rable companions, going hand in hand to
elevate mankind to the highest standpoint
of physical and mental perfection. On
Wednesday eve we listened to an earnest
and able effort of Dr. Curry, of the State
Normal School. Tins was a plea for
special cducalion. Although it was spec
ial in its character, yet we gathered from
the production that the author would have
general education precede the special.
LThe addresses of Chancellor Fairfield and
l)r. Curry were the most maruea icatures
of the meeting.
The efforts of Miss Mary Elcock and
Miss Wolcott desires more than a passing
notice. The able production of Miss El
cock was a well prepared c say on a most
interesting subject. She clearly evinced
that she was concerned about the condi
tion of humanit', and acquitted herself
with credit. She vividly portrayed the
beauties of morality, the excellencies of
character, and the worth of labor.
Miss Wolcott held the audience in al
most breathless silence dwriog the read,
ing of her essay. In eloquent strains she
told us of the necessity of setting good
examples before the children. Her essay
was very interesting, probably as much
so as one upon the subject of " Marking
and Reporting" could have been made.
The two productions just spoken of
were models of beauty, excellence, and
worth, showing plainly that the women
are not inferior to the men in some rields
of labor. Ladies, don't be afraid to speak
and the world will soon carry the visible
effects of your guardian hands.
We also listened to some very interest
ing and instructive essays from other
teachers of different parts of the State.
On account of the ttme of day that the
trains leave Fiemont, it was thought to be
expedient to close at noon on Thursday.
Consequently the work of the Association
was shortened, and the afternoon session
of Thursday dispensed will. A gen
eral good time was had and the teach-
