McCor mick, Ex-Supcrlntendent Thonas and Supt. Arnold of this city, visited the Norton institute last Friday. They found Supt. Culter and his corps of as sistants very busy and doing excellent work. While the attendance is not as large as it should be, yet those present are busily engaged in their studies and will be well repaid for their efforts to make themselves more efficient In their school work. A very enjoyable time was had and these young men came away with pleasant memories of the Norton institute. One great ad vantage the teachers of Norton coun ty have is the new high school build ing which has Just been completed and Is occupied by tho Institute for the first time. The building is very conveniently arranged and is one of the best equipped high school build ings In this part of the state. Phillips county needs a county high school and such a building very badly. nscsmahv n Jim Damps on Independence Day, Said : " Force freed us from Eng ' land's sway.
