of the region. Along die coast, to

miles. The water began to take
its new and directer course in the
evening of May 8, and developed
itself into a regular river channel the
evening of May 9, on which date
there was an abundance of water for
any steamer that has ever plowed the
waters of the great Mississippi. The

How To Teach Geography.
We visited a geography class a few
days ago, in which we noticed a new
method of conducting reviews. The
plan is so good that we desire to submit
it to our readers, hoping that they will
test its value.
The class had completed the geogra
phy of Europe. Two members were
appointed by the teacher to set out on
a travelling expedition, in which they
were to visit all the large cities they
could reach in ships or large steam-boats.
Two others were to visit the cities
that could not be reached except by rail.
Two were to take a tour over the coun
try, visiting the principal mountains,
ascertaining their height, and for what
they were noted. Two others were to
visit the principal islands. If any two,
who set out on the same expedition,
failed to agree as to the route they take,
they were at liberty to separate and go
in different directions. They were to
tell the size of the places visited, what
kind of people lived there, what their
occupation was, how they dressed and
how they worshipped.
The class was much interested in
these reports, and all seemed to realize
(a thing rarely done by a geography
class) that there actually were such
places as they were talking about, and
that real people lived there. We heard
these pupils, a few days after, conver
sing among themselves of the places
they had visited, much as they would
had they actually made the trip. We
mentally resolved to try this plan at
the first opportunity, and advise you,
fellow teacher, to do the same. Ex.
If we were asked who is to be "the
coming man" in the tutorial profession,
we would answer unhesitatingly, ki;he
man who recognizes and acts upon the
fact, that in order to be a teacher, he
must devote some portion of his time to
learning how to teach." The old idea
that a man is a full fledged teacher as
soon as he has acquired a certain a
mount of book knowledge is going out
of fashion. Those whose business it is
to look ifter the interests of the schools
in the county, are beginning to show
an interest in their work. When a body
of men, snch as that which met at the
Court House on the 24tlTof May,assem
bles and earnestly discusses the subject
of education: it means something. It
means progress. Not that we are to
reject all former ideas about teaching
and substitute "new f angled ideas" in
their stead, but that we mean to profit
by the past, retaining much that is good
in the old system, and making such
improvements as experience suggests
as practicable. That there is room for
improvements, none will deny. In every
other department of science, improve
ments are continually being made.
Shall the same science of education
be denied the same privilege? The
teacher who thinks so well find him-
salf slowly, it may be, but none the less
surely, gravitating towards the lower
ranks of the profession.
The Southern Presbyterian Gener
al Assembly adjourned on Saturday
night, May 24th. The following is
the most important matters :
"The question of marriage with a
deceased wife's sister was referred fin
ally to the Presbyteries for their ad
vice and consent. The mode of
amending the Confession of Faith and
Catechism was decided on. The ques
tion of powers of elders to act ai Mod
erator of Church Courts was referred
to the next Assembly. A committee
was appointed to prepare and sand
down to churches a pastoral letter on
the duty and neglect of family wor
ship. The. cause of education receiv
ed much attention, and in considera
tion of the increasing number of can
didates fur the ministry the churches
were urged to increase their contribu
tions so as to meet all the require
ments for the expense of education.
At a late hour on Saturday night,
after disposing of all the bnaines on
the docket and passing the customary
vote of thanks, the Assembly waa
closed with devotional exercises. The
Moderator, in accordance with the
form prescribed, declared the General
Assembly of 1884 dissolved, and
ordered that another Assembly be
con vened in the city of Houston, Tex

How to Conduct Recitations.
A valuable feature of a recitation.
says a writer in the Studenfjs a discussion
on the subject of the lesson. Whether
this is between the members of the
class or between the class and its teach
er, it is to be encouraged. How inter
esting it is in the midst of a bare state
ment of memorized facts, to see the eyes
brighten at the suggestion of some per
tinent question! How the sleepy minds
suddenly awake to thought, in solving
a newproblem, or evolving a new idea
How a class becomes full of bright
ness when an honest difference of opin
ion elicits a lively debate on some topic
relating to the subject in hand! A skill
ful teacher can readily provoke and
control such a debate, when you can
get a child to ask intelligent questions,
or express original ideas, no matter
how crude, you have brought that child
into a very desirable frame of mind for
the reception of truth, and for the ex
pansion of its powers. We suggest
this as a practical rule: Never go be
fore a class without having prepared at
least one question not in the text-book,
bnt closely related to what is there,
which will awaken interested thought in
the minds of the children. Ex.
The policy of the Democrats is to
utilize every dollar possible in pay
ing the three per cent bonds now out
standing. By this means we not only
atop interest and save an expense to
the people, but also hasten the day
when the inevitable crisis will be
reached forcing a reduction of taxa
tion. There are now only $230,000-,
000 of these three per cent bouds un
paid, and the Democratic House
should make every exertion to pay
them off at once. Because of this the
Dingley bill should be passed at this
session. This bill provides that about
$40,000,000 of greenbacks now lock
ed up in the treasury shall be inves
ted in these bonds. If this be done
and $40,000,000 of bouds be retired
there will remain outstanding but
The existing surplus continuing,
there will be retired within the next
twelve months $100,000,000 more,
and by that time wc assume the sit
aution will be so critical that no pub
lic man will dare to trifle with the
prombleiu further, and all opposition
to tax reduction will cease. What the
Democratic party desires to accom
plish will then commend itself to the
judgment cf all classes and our meas
ure will be successful. The people
will be relieved of the unnecessary
burdens they now bear and the ceun
try will be more prosperous. News
Boarzan Cash's Second Victim.
James Coward, who was shot and
fatally wounded by VV. B. Cash, on
February 23 last, died last evening
at about 9 o'clock. From the mo
ment his physicians examined the
wound they had net the slightest
hopes of his recovery, but he held out
to the last, though all the while ex
pressing his willingness to submit to
the inevitable. He has borne his
sufferings with remarkable fortitude,
although conscious that his short life,
(he was only 25) would soon be at an
end. He will be sadly missed from
among the ranks of his numerous
friends, by whom he was justly re
garded as a genial, clever companion.
A Bee's Feet. Naturalists say that
the feet of the common working bee
exhibit the combination of a basket,
a brush and a pair of pincers. The
brush, the hairs of which are arrang
ed in symmetrical rows, are only to
be seen with the microscope. With
this brush of fairy delicacy the bee
brushes its velvet robe, to remove the
pollen dust with which it becomes
loaded while rifling the flowers and
sucking up their nectar. Another
article, hollowed up like a spoon, re
ceives all the gleanings which the in
sect carries to the hive. It is a panier
for provisions. Finally, by opening
them, one upon another, by means of
a hinge, these two pieces become a
pair of pincers, which render impor
tant services in the construction of
London Aquarium Burned. The
Fast London aquarium at Bishop's
Gate, was burned this morning. Of
the collection of wild animals, some
were safely removed, others it was
necessary to shoot, and some were
burned. Among the latter were lions,
bears, jaekals and monkeys. Two
Russian bears, however, were rescued.
The roarin&r of the burning beasts
was something terrible. The collec
tion of curiosities of Mar wood, the

em Methodists are only acquainted
with Hamiltonian ideas of a strong

heard of local self government or the
rights reserved to the States under

The Phixce op Wales Boued.
The Pri nee of Wales has not so much
gone to Royat for his health as to
avoid being condoled with on the
death of his lamented brother. Be
has been surfeited with conventional
mourning in Germany, because, as
one of Prince Consort's sons, he is a
Duke of Saxony. He could not tra
verse a village or stop an instant at a
railway station without being pounc
ed upon by -.veil-meaning functiona
ries of the locality and obliged to lis
ten to a dull essay on the shortness
of life and the irreparable loss the
royal family has sustained. At
Darmstadt every lady wore a long
face. At Berlin the lugubrious cere
mony observed by nearly every one
who approached him became intoler
able. The Prince was thankful to
find himself, after all this simulated
woe, iu a republican city, where not
a creature thought of presenting him
with an address.

How They Lived.
The fallen money kings of New
York live in houses remarkable for
their magnificence and luxury. A.

imitation of a castle described in one
of Walter Scott's novels. George I

European nobles. General Grant still
occupies the four story brown stone
front on Sixth street. John C Eno has

Dimock, O. M. Bogart, Robert Don

fine establishments, and it will take
millions to keep them up in proper
tyle. It may be that tome of these
dethroned money kings will find it
necessary to move into more humble
quarters. If they do sot there will
be many inquiries of "why not?"
