Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition. of the mucous surfaces.

The Pacific Grove Summer School.

The Pacific Grove Summer School, which for the past few years has enjoyed the distinction of being the best of its sort on the Coast, offers a wider and more attractive field of work this year than ever before. Several new names appear in the faculty for 1900; among these are Professor Rufus Lot Green, Dr. Herbert Z. Kip, and Mr. Harold S. Muckleston, all of Stanford ; Dr. William P. Boynton, of the University of California; and Dr. Rockwell D. Hunt, of the University of the Pacific. Professor Green offers, among others, a lecture course upon the theories of Arithmetic, with special reference to the origin and development of the number systems and its laws, a new course which will appeal widely to teachers. There is a course in Physics offered tbis year for the first time by Dr. Boynton, which will be of great value to teachers in grammar and high schools of limited equipment. It is a laboratory course in the construction and use of the simpler and more important pieces of physical apparatus. Dr. Starbuck offers, in addition to those given last year, a lecture course

on the theory and practice of teaching. Professor Sanford offers two courses not given in 1899; one in Shakespeare and one in English Grammar. The history department is also wider than last year and covers a very attractive field. Professor Goebel, who for the past two years has had charge of the

San Diego Normal School. President Samuel T. Black, of the San Diego State Normal School, announces a summer school at Coronado to open July 2d

work in German, will this summer teach in Chicago University; his courses will be given, however, by Dr. Kip. Conservative management, a particularly happy location, and a high grade of instruction have made the Pacific Grove Summer School a very popular one, the same students often returning from year to year. The reduction in fees promises a still larger attendance for 1900. Teachers say they have a fine time at Pacific Grove, and that adds zest to their studies.

The San Francisco Institute. Superintendent R. H. Webster called the annual institute for May 23d, 24th, and 25th. It was held in the auditorium of the Mission High School. Over one thousand teachers attended. The opening address of Superintendent Webster was full of professional spirit. His appearance on the platform was received with prolonged and enthusiastic applause.

President Mark's address, which sounded the keynote of the policy of the present board of education, is given in part elsewhere.

The addresses of President Wheeler, President Jordan, Professor Cubberley, Professor Stratton, Dr. Brown, and Dr. Burk were all well received.

Dr. Hoover, who was on the program as an L.L.D., proved to be a humorist and a health-food specialist.

The music rendered was excellent thruout. The institute was a marked success, and the instruction given was full of inspiration and characterized by broad professional work.

Superintendent J. F. Barbee, of Mendocino County, held his institute in Fort Bragg. The instructors were T. L. Heaton, D. R. Augsburg, J. W. McClymonds, and local teachers. The meeting was a complete success. The practical work of Heaton and the drawing of Augsburg were the special features of the institute.

National Educational Association.

Los ANGELES, Cal., May 18, 1900. The next meeting of the N. E. A. will be held at Charleston. National Council, July 7-10; General Association, July 10-13, 1900.

Railroads have given assurance of extra attention to secure comfort and convenience of their patrons, and have made a rate of one fare, $85.65, for the round trip, plus $2.00 membership fee. No line will be designated as official. Transit limit.— Going continuous passage. Final Limit.—Sixty days from date of sale. All will be interested in visiting the historic grounds of that portion of our country. The local authorities at Charleston will spare no pains to provide facilities for comfortable and economical entertainment. Numerous excursions at greatly reduced rites will be planned to resorts in the South and East. Hotel rates from $1.00 to $5.00 per day.

It is urged upon teachers and friends of education in California to plan to attend the Charleston meeting. Last year, California sent the largest delegation and furnished the largest list of memberships in the history of the Association. Let us make an effort to keep our state in the front. The meeting promises to be most profitable in a professional point of view, and we feel justified in urging all interested in education to attend.

Teachers and friends desiring to visit the East and Middle West during vacation will find this a good opportunity.

The Perry Pictures and the Perry

Magazine. The Perry Pictures have become an important part of school work. Used in picture study, geography, language, history, and literature, they have brought new life into the work of the school and have opened a new field of enjoyment to the children. While many of the fathers and mothers of the children now in school know little about art, the children, in many towns and cities thruout the country, are having their lives enriched and made more beautiful by these pictures.

Published at one cent each in lots of twenty-five or more, they are within the reach of almost all. Any progressive teacher can bring at least a few of them into the lives of her pupils.

Dr. G. Stanley Hall, president of Clark University, says: “I am glad to make an exception to my rule to commend no school material, in favor of the Perry Pictures. I have been greatly interested in them from the first, and regard them as a very important addition to our school equipment. They should be in every school, not only in the larger cities, but in the smallest country districts."
