pupils in the building. The Baptist

all three buildings, showing that the
prospects for a successful school term
are very favorable.

It will be of inter/st to the parents,
perhaps, to know what the pupils are
doing to accomplish in their books.
In passing through Miss Forcede's
room, grades two and three, the writer
and her assistant were shown paper
cuttings which were used in illustrating
"Goldenrod," a story they have been
studying. We were also shown some
excellent work in grammar her pupils
had been doing.
In the eighth grade the pupils are
taking up a very interesting subject
and one that comes closer to them
than any other, Oklahoma History.
Another new subject is agriculture,
which promises to be quite as much
of an interest as all the other subjects.
In literature they are reading William
Wadsworth's poementitled "Michael."
