FOR PLACE Dr. Horace Warrea leellvere Address ' ss HFgtleae Dr. Colarrove Tclu f Reawlrwaseats wf tbc Tracker. The mesMlnf of the Southwestern Iowa Teachers' association cloeed yesterday with the genera! conviction of all that H was the most pleasant and valuable In the history of the association. When the eastt account was closed the ha lance sheet showed that the receipts exceeded the expenditures lust 1 cent, and mnch merri ment waa ociasloned In the decorous Uls- cuaslon of what would be -the best dls postttot. to be made of tho cent. Ail of tha teachers from abroad left on the afternoon trains, but nearly one-half of them slipped away before noon There was a snintea contest when it came to choose officers for the year and select thai place for holding the next meeting. Red Oak'a representatives put up a atrong fight for the honor of enter taining the teacher and won when the fact waa recalled that last year Red Oak lost tha privilege after having gained the -rk-tory by reason of an outbreak of scar let fever about the time, the oonvention si to be held. Delegates from Atlantic mad a atrong fight, but yielded grace fully when defeat became apparent and asked that the lelecUon of Red Oak be mad unanimous. It required considerable balloting to choose) th officers and In the end these war cboatn: President. E. W. Fellows, superintendent elty schools. Denlson; chairman of executive committee. County Supaiirxtendent Clara Cowgill, Red Oak: sic president, Anna Z. Ross, Council Bluffs; aecretary, Superintendent W. H. Ofmmell. Carroll. Warrea aa Hygleae, Th feature of the day'a program waa th lecture and demonstrations of Dr. Horace Warren of Missouri Valley, who 1 th att lecturer on oral hygiene. He laid especial emphasis upon th neces sity for th proper care of 'lie teeth and gave a practical demonstration of Ills conviction that tha tooth brush also needed car when he took from his vest pocket an hermetically sealed glsss tube and ahook from It hi tooth brush. He character! xed an unclean tooth brush aa bout the most deadly unsanitary device that carelessness and ignorance has been abas to provide. He Indicated that he regarded th glass used In connection XYtth the -brush to be of equal danger of tnnectlon when h took from his pocket a sanitary collapsible paper cup. The proper car of th teeth waa mad very plain and Dr. Warren' talk was worth whll a Instruction for teacher In re lation to the cat of their own teeth ax well a for Instructing their pupils. Dr. Warren attributed half of th diseases to th neglect of th teeth, i .Another valuable lecture of scientific Usd practical character was given by Dr. C. P. Colgrov of Cedar Rapids. Ia., on "Tha Educational Equation." He dealt largely with th physiological and psych ologies requirements of the good teacher and cVsclared a unfounded th oft x pressed belief that teaching waa an In born quality. WHUngneaa to work and thoroughly master all of th problems lo b taught and an acquired ability to discern quickly th quality of th pupil was th foundation for aucces !n th teaching profession. Mental discipline, ha declared to u th prerequisite for 11 other dlsclpllns, and "sand, sympathy nd venae, " he Bald, were th chief things required outside of th education r.eces- sary to teach.

Klernan left New Tork for London laat week for the purpose of cubing th 4O,0O draft and forwarding th money - to New Tork, where It would be Immediately available for distribution by Governor Shaw. The letter of the former ' ecrelary of th United State treasury did not Indicate bit- of pessimism, nor does Mr. lies entertain any.l Every legal quibble haa been satisfied. nd sven th necessity for Mr. Klernan going to London to cash th draft that was to hav been paid In New York on March If ha been explained. Local In terest in th deal haa not abated, but considerable anxiety will be relieved when th more than 3310.000 tied op will be released and returned to th possession of the local men who advanced It.
