welcomed back by the high school-
Miss Joyce has permitted her
pupils to take the state examina

The excellent work done , the
industry of the pupils and the up-

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
