Nauvoo Academy having to close its
doors as for a number of years this city
has been represented by students
there. This year also, there are a
number of young girls of Keokuk in
attendance there and for this reason
possibly this city is wishing for suc

Catholics of the city also have that
unmistakable feeling for the prosper

with deep regret that they would see
the instituions closed. The work ac

and their unselfish work has made
