A teachers’ institute of two weeks will be held in the high school building at Neillsville, beginning July 23. Prof. H. C. Buel of Janesville is to have charge of the work, and he will be assisted by Miss Martha Dockery of Richland Center and Prof. d. A. Swartz of Colby.
The main purpose of the institute work will be to develop teaching power, and to train teachers in the best methods of instruction. As a general rule, school boards want trained teachers, if they can get them, and they are willing to pay better wages to such teachers.
Every person who intends to teach in Clark county the coming year will be expected to attend this institute. Be present at the enrollment the first morning and remain throughout the entire session. This is the only way in which the institute will be of practical benefit to you.
The conditions for refilling standings at the coming examinations are successful teaching, and a good institute record.
The subject matter for the institute for this season will be taken from the new school manual, a copy of which will be put int the hands of every teacher on the first morning of the institute. Bring all your text-books.
Board may be obtained at private houses at a reasonable rate. Those wishing to secure places in advance may do so by writing F. W. Draper at Neillsville, or to the superintendent at Thorp. Further information concerning the institute will be given if desired.
Thorp - Aug. 6, 7, 8.
Colby - Aug. 9, 10, 11.
Greenwood - Aug. 13, 14, 15.
A SANE FOURTH IT WAS
SO FAR AS GREENWOOD WAS CONCERNED WITH JUST A NICE, QUIET TIME.
That is what it was Wednesday in Greenwood - not counting the time around about midnight when some fellows, evidently without families and with little regard for those who had families, sick ones who needed quiet and rest, were making the night hideous by shooting off powder or dynamite or both with anvil accompaniment.
A good many went to Neillsville to join with our sister city in celebrating, but more stayed home and enjoyed a quiet, sane fourth with their families and in neighborly gatherings, picnics, etc.
The usual evening pyrotechnics were quiet in evidence at the close of the day, and so far as we have heard no serious accidents occurred anywhere, either at home or in the country.
