We visited Riverside Indian
school Sunday and tho courteous
superintendent, Mr. Campbell and
Ii'ir pleasant wifo showed UH through
all tlu various buildings and rooms.
There are in tliu neighborhood uf
180 Indian children enrolled and
they cat and sleep in the spacious
buildings providud ly Uncle Sam.
These rooms aro all neatly furn'iHhed
and well eared for. A large baury
provides all tliu bread used, nearly
180 loavcH a day, and Indian boys
do the bakir-g.
There is a inanuel training school
where vurioUH industries arc taught
to the Indian youth.1 The sowing
room, a largo bright, well lighted
"room, is devoted exclusively to the
purpose of teaching sowing to the
igirls. There is a Kindergarden de
partment whero the little totN arc
taught their A B C's and wonder of
wonders to model in clay. Think of
sculptors at the age of live and six.

scores of well modeled cats, dogs,
turtles, wagons, pappoosu cradles,
bullaloes, trees, birds and every -other
imagionablo objects, all fash
