Speer's course of study, and will be
pleased to furnish each teacher with a
copy of the same with a view to sys
tematizing the work of the schoals.
Each teacher should familiarize himself
with this course of study, and grade
his school accordingly. Teacher, please

that when the Superintendent visits
your school he will find you doing good
work in grading the same.

We understand that the Normal col
lege at Enterprise is starting out very
flatteringly with an enrollment of

be glad to have such an institution

were granted 3 first grade, 18 second
grade and 79 third grade certificates,
making a total of 100 certificates out
of 135 applicants.
