Genealogy and History
Hamilton County Teachers' Institute at the Ohio Female College - Thursday - Ninth Day's Proceedings.
Opening exercises were read by M. S. Turrill, who gave the Institute some very practical hints as to methods of conducting morning exercises in opening school. The forenoon was devoted to class exercises, while the afternoon was occupied chiefly in lectures, drawing and penmanship.
T. W. Harvey gave a lecture on geography and methods of presenting the subject to classes of different grades.
The Hon. E. E. White took for his topic, "The teachers Preparation to Meet his Clas s at Recitation."
These lectures, which take the time of the afternoon sessions, are not only interesting, but we judge, from the large attendance of teachers and the attention inanifested, that teachers regard them as of very great utility and practical worth, placed before them in such a way that they may carry them into successful operation in their own school rooms.
The attendance is large, and there is a general feeling of regret that the Institute is soon to close; that the valuable instruction s must cease, and that at least a temporary breaking up of kind friendships and pleasant social intercourse must so soon take place. All are looking forward with cheerful anticipation to the grand social which is to take place in the spacious chapel of the Ohio Female College, Friday evening.

The Wrecked Metropolitan
Cincinnati, Feb. 15. - Receiver James McConville arrived from Steubenville this morning and took charge of the Metropolitan bank. He is totally unacquainted with the bank's affairs and can say nothing of the outlook until he has examined the books. [Omaha Daily Bee (Omaha, NE) February 16, 1888, page 6]
