Mary sent me an image file from a newspaper article she found. Peg Jones transcribed that file to a text file so we can have it here. Thank you Mary and Peg! - Dianna Williams

The Institute opened monday morning with an enrollment of one hundred and fifty-four. Owing to the time of the Institute and the extremely hot weather, this enrollment is very flattering, not only to the County Superintendent, and Instructors but also to the teaching profession.

The abundance of ice-water and the Japanese fans which were furnished free by our obliging druggist Newton Keen, have added greatly to our comfort in keeping cool.
