Teaching tlio Dumb to Talk.
There are many features in the cduca-
tory work In the institution for the deaf
and dumb here , which seem common
place to those connected with the school
who have an every day familiarity with
them , but they arc surprising , almost
startling to others. The visitor to the in-
btitutiou is , for instance , surprised to
notice a teacher tap with his foot on the
lloor to command the attention of the
class. The pupils respond to this signal
as promptly as those who can hear the
foot-tap , It Is UlDicult to realize that
thov do not hear it , so quickly do they
look up on the signal being given. Their
nerves are developed wonderfully to
atone for tlio loss ot hearing and they
readily catch the slight concussion , or
vibration of the lloor. A person of ordl-
narv sense unfamiliar with the silent
world of the inuto would never think of
calling deaf puniN to dinner by beating
a drum , anil vet in the same way they
cateli this signal and eonio trooping to
the dining hall.
But one of the most interesting and
eVini startling features of tlio education
of these pupils is that of teaching thorn
to talk not witli the lingers but to talk
as those who can linar.
1'rof. MeDermid has accomplished
some wondortul results in his time. It
requires an endless amount of patience
and drill , but that such results could even
thus be readied seems miraculous.
An article appeared in a recent issue of
tlio New York World , concerning this
branch of deaf mute education , f-o'mo of
the facts in which are of special interest.
A description is given of the only private
school of this kind in New York city.
Miss Sadie \V. Keelor is the teacher. For
eleven years she has worked among deaf
mutes and given to voiceless tongues the
music of speech. She has made a .special
stuily of methods , botli in Kuropo as
well as this country , and adopted what
she deems the best. Her success is said
to border on the miraculous. The reporter -
porter who visited her school thus de
scribes her methods :
Two boys about seven , another of ten ,
pretty girl of sixteen anil two smaller
girls about eleven years old were sitting
quietly around a little table. There was
a. blackboard and a first reader in the
room. Miss Kceler was teaching the
smallest boy to say "Ah ! " She put one
of his hands on her chest so that he could
feel the vibrating of the vocal chords and
held the other close to her mouth , so that
he could feel the expulsion of her breath.
Then she said "Ah ! " and ho tried to say
it after her. Then her lips formed tlio
word "papa , " and the little fellow , by
closely watching , essayed to imitate her ,
but the only result was something that
sounded like "mum-mum. " The teacher
hold the lad's hand to her lips so that ho
could feel her breatli as she expelled it in
making the "p" in "papa. " The "in"
sound did not bring uny breath on his
hand ; so lit tried again , nnd , holding his
hand to his own mouth , changed "mum-
mum" into a gutteral sort of "papa. "
The little pupil had hard work getting
the loiter "e. " The only way ho could
foci this sound was by placing * his hands
one on each side of the jaw of the teachor.
The sound of "m" and "n" ho got by
placing the lingers of ono hand on the
teacher's nose and the lingers of his other
hand in precisely the same way on his
own noso. Then ho copied the movement
of her lips and tongue exactly , and an
other letter was won. The vowels are
taught first , then letters are put together ,
and tlio lad at last learns to say "boy. "
Then ho writes it on a slate , and is told
that the three letters mean himself or any
One pretty little maiden named Minnie
sits jiiBt across the round table. She be
gan learning early , and speaks very
nicely. Of course , that voice , which she
herself has never heard , lacks the modu
lation that wo unconsciously learn to
look for. "J love you , " from those pretty
lips has the same measure of affection
expressed and the same placid intonation
that " 1 halo you" has. She is a good ex
ample of the double system of teaching
that goes on in this queer school room.
She lias learned lip-reading. Speak
slowly to her and she can tell from the
changes in your lips and tongue what
you bay. Make the mere molion with
your mouth , as if whispering soflly , but
do not make the least sound , and she can
tell what your words would bo.
Of cours9 in this combination of
object-teaching and lip-reading there
needs must bo strange mistakes.
Take the case of the teacher , who ,
speaking in i&hool to deaf mutes , tried
to explain whnt a deacon was. Ho took
his hat and passed it round as though
taking up a collection in church that
was a deacon. Now , did they under
stand ? Of course. Little Georgia held
up his hand and was given n chance to
air his knowledge and toll what a deacon
really was. "Ho is the monkey that coes
around with the organ-grinder to collect
pennies. " So when ho wrote on the board
the definition of consequence "that
which follows , " another bright lad sa'ul
u dog was a consequence , because Lo fol
lowed the man.
Just about a century ago the plodding ,
painstaking Germans began to try to
teach deaf mutes to talk. They learned
it from Spain , and have been improving
over since. Now nearly all the big cities
of the civilized world have deaf mute
schools , A child should begin at live or
six years to learn , and in ton years ought
to bo abln to talk fairly well. Most
teachers limit their classes to seven , as it
is dilllcult to give the desired attention to
each member of a larger class. The
pupils are glad to learn , and arc singu
larly persistent in trying. But , after all ,
there is something pathotio in their strug
gles to talk a language Unit has no moan
ing for their ears.
