TEACHING THEM TO TALK , Some Interesting Facts Ooncornbg the Edu cation of the Deaf Mutes. THE CITY FATHERS' MEETING. A net on the TJJIW Kor Selling Clears Snclnl Notes 1'crnnnnl Men tions nnd Urlcf News Hits. 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 other boy. 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.
