WILLIAM AND MARY OPENS HER DOORS
FOR ANOTHER SESSION NEXT THURSDAY
WILLIAMSBURG FEMALE INSTITUTE OPENS FOR TUE
SESSION NEXT TUESDAY MORNINIi
.'.jam and Mary opens her
doors next Thursday morning for its
219 session, under very favorable
conditions. For the past week or
SO mi ny students ha cd their
intention of spending the winter at
this college, and it looks like the at?
tendance this year will be far in
excess of recent pa ns.
During the summer the two old !
dormitory buildings, thc a-.d ,
Brafferton. have undergone a com?
plete rehabi.iiation. So marked
have been the changes and improve?
ments that men who knew these
buildings in other days would not
recognize them nov*. With steam
heat, electric light and running water
in each room, and all other improve?
ments in keeping, these buildings
are now most attractive. It is thought
that William and Mary never spent
money to greater advantage than in
improving and modernizing its dor
mitories. I ^ring more state
students from year to year.
Practically all of the members of
the faculty are in town now and
those who are not here wal be pres?
et on opening da*.
The Williamsburg Female Insti?
tute will begin the session nea*
Tuesday morning. With a strong
:lty andmore attractive surround?
ings, the next session promises to be
the most successful in the history o'
the institution. Williamsburg feels
a deep interest in this institution, as
the people here had much to dc
with its establishment. President
Hurter is much encouraged over thc
outlook and expects this session tc
be the pivotal one in the history ol
the school. He will have the sup?
port of the Nor csbytery in a
more substantial way than hereto
c.thus a him more tim*.
to devote to the school.

TELLS Of HIS TRIP TO THE WEST
Aurora. S. D . Sept. 4.
r The Gazette:
No doubt you would like a word
from me, also many or your readers
may be interested in an account of
some of my observations.
Things did not look well on the
Peninsula when I left. The drouth
showed very much until I had passed
Richmond, but was plainly less se?
vere beyond that point. Darrine ss
soon closed my observations for the
; day and when daylight again arrived
we were sliding down the i I
West Virginia. There was that
fresh deep green on vegetation which
plainly meant no lack of rain there.
Crops, so far as we could see trom
the train, looked strong and vigor
? ous. This condition continued ali
along down the Ohio valley, through
Kentucky. I saw several fine :
of tobacco and corn. After leaving
Cincinnati we came to the real farm?
ing country. Small grain had been
cut and housed, corn showed a good
growth and seemed to be well along
toward maturity. This would hold
in that portion of Ohio and
Farther on toward the north crops
were later and many fields of srr.a".
grain were yet in shock, which
owing to recent rains were in nc

st not a big crop. It xs on the hon
