Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Frank and Miss Beem, who have been Superintendent, Financial clerk and Housekeeper here for four years left Monday evening for Bay Mills. Michigan, where they will fill the same positions. We are sorry to part with them but wish thetn the best of success in their new field. The new Superintendent, Mr. M. D. Archiquette and family came in on the America Friday night. The following is taken from Home and School, Anadar ko, Oklo. "For some tune the papers of Anadar ko have been telling that Martin D. Archiquette was slated for a move and a promotion. The last word has come and the Archiquette family has started for the new home. July 29th they took passage for Grand Portage Agency, Min nesota, where Mr. Archiquette will be the Superintendent and Special Disburs ing Agent, and Mrs. Archiquette will be Financial clerk. "Mr. Archiquette is an Oneida In dian, and a graduate from Carlisle class of '91. For some time after this gradua tion he attended Dickinson College, also at Carlisle. In 1896, however, he enter ed the Indian Service, while not until 1902 did he enter the matrimonal service. During these years in both departments of service he has steadily gone on. He has been industrial teacher, school tea cher and disciplinarin in the education al work. So now he goes to this new re sponsibility with very good preparation as he has climbed up. "Mrs. Archiquette is a member of the Pottawatomie tribe, with her home in Kansas, so that she received her educa tional preparation at Haskell Institute, graduating with the class of 1900. The work of matron brought her into the Indian service, although in order that she might be sure of the permanent ma tron position she consented in 1902 to enter matrimonial service (same time as Mr. Archiquette). Both phases of pre paration now combine to place her in the liv^e fci^ this new promotion, and here is hoping that the Chippewas and the Archiquettes may do their best in the days of work ahead. "Two children have been born to Mr. and Mrs Archiquette. Floyd, 11 years old, entering 7th grade of our Anadarko school, and Vera, age 9 years, entering the 6th grade. Just here is where the hard part wili come as we understand, for there are no nearLv schools at the new home, which give opportunity above the 4th grade. "On July 27th the Agency folks pul led off a complete surprise on the Archi quettes in honor of their thirteenth wedding anniversary. The evening was spent in games, music, readings, refresh ments and a general good time. tfslllEJ You can always alford something—no matter how small—put it in the bank.
