Everyone is glad to see Ethel Galloway and Olive Van Metre back at their desks. After a week's absence Gladys Jackson's smiling countenance is welcomed back by the high school- Miss Joyce has permitted her pupils to take the state examina tion and those who pass in this with a high grade will be excused from final examinations. The excellent work done , the industry of the pupils and the up- to-date methods in class instruc tion were among the favorable comments made by the class in normal training on returning from a profitable hour in observing practical pedagogy in Miss Van- Orsdoll's room Wednesday. Of the many and new w&ys tc arouse interest in her pupils Miss Nelson this week made a neat little experiment to show the power ol steam by a miniature explosion- Always resourceful , energetic and faithful to Valentine i a large degree - [ tine can well be proud to count sc 'able ' and strong a teacher as Miss Nelson among her instructors.
