Visitors' Day at
St. Agnes Academy
Last Sunday the St. Agnes academy
was thrown open to the public for the
first time and from one to five p. m.
hundreds of visitors took advantage of
the opportunity to inspect the interior
of the building. Everything is new
about the place and the premises, and
the school room arrangements the
most comfoi table. There is plenty of
light and air in every room, and other
necessary conveniences arp to be found
in the building. From the basement
to the font tli floor, where the dormatory
is located, everything is order and
cleanliness. There are tint ty-ftve beds
in the sleeping apartment aud this is
but one-half of the bedroom capacity.
Iron bedsteads with the best matresses
and bedding make up sleeping quarters
for each scholar individually, aud toilet
rooms with hot and cold water and
other necessities adjoin the dormatory
to the north. Two sisters keep con
stant watch over the room in which
the scholars repose, and the nights as
well ns days are spent in watchfulness
and care for the protection and safety
of every scholar who boards and rooms
nt the convent. Thus it can be said
thnt Alliance is now well equipped with
a sisters' school of learning where mor
al as well as secular training and edu
cation receive every consideration.
Monday, the first day of school at
St. Agnes academy, saw about 100
children in attendance. It was a great
sight to witness the young generation
wending its way to the new educational
institution, which is attracting atten
tion throughout this part of the west.
The Sisters have been handicapped by
many obstacles, such as usually throw.

nings of this kind, nevertheless the
opening was most creditable, and it
may be said that the school is now
well under way. Arrangements for
the boarding scholars are now complete
