W.H. Payne, LL.D., chancellor of the University of Nashville and president of the State Normal College opened bis summer school last Tuesday, as he was unwell Monday. He consented to conduct this school only at the earnest solicitation of some of nis friends. and this was the case last year when he had charge of a similar school. It is' not one of the numerous schools of method ia which much of the time is devoted to such questions as "How do you teach geography'?" but is almost sui generis, the aim being to discuss general questions and broad principies in the science of education. Teachers are here from West Bay City, Coldwater. and elsewhere. ïhere are two sessions daily, beginning at 10 a. m. and 2 p. m., only one hour each. The school will close at the end of next week. Visitors are welcome.
