A meeting of the teachers of this section of Bonner county was held in the high school room last Saturday. Supt. Riodan of the city schools presided. Miss Moore of the fifth grade read a paper on the teaching of English in the intermediate grades. The paper was well prepared and demonstrated her ability to teach the subject in hand as well as the power to make valuable suggestions as to its teaching. Miss Middough of the high school faculty made a strong plea for Latin, showing it to be essential to good culture and even more practical value than is the German to the up-building of a good English education. Mrs. Norton gave a class demonstration in "Devices for Quick Reading" -- a number well rendered and thoroughly enjoyed.

Supt. H. F. Irion gave a talk on the unfounded prejudices too often entertained by people against their own school. Mr. Irion made a plea that patrons visit the school before rendering adverse judgments founded on hearsay and fragmentary reports. Mrs. Irion, Supt. of Bonner county, talked briefly, giving suggestions on purchasing of books and information relative to the 8th grade and teacher examinations, Supt. Riodan spoke briefly on the "Three Great Affirmatives, - I am, I can and I will." Calling attention to the imperative essentiality of development in the pupil of the quality for which each affirmative stands.

The following musical program preceded the discussions:
Piano Solo.....Vivian Hollinger
Vocal Solo.....Georgia Loughney
Piano Solo.....Gladys Rowell

The following little people performed:
Recitation.....Dorothy Ludington
Vocal Duet.....Phyllis and Helen Hollinger
Vocal Duet.....Leroy and Mabel Palmer

The performances of all the little people were highly appreciated, but the impersonation and dancing of Leroy and Mabel Palmer were exceptionally well carried out, and elicited much applause.
