We regret our having neglected tho
locals last week, but we were so very
busy preparing for the trip to Gulfport
that we forgot the locals until we were
speeding on our way. - .
Our party consisted of Prof. J. A.
Mcßeynolds, Miss Maggie Sullivan,
Miss Nellie Livingston, and your hum
ble correspondent “Miss Bevill.” We
left Sturgis at 7 o'clock p. m. Wednes
day and reached Gulfport at 4:30 Thurs
day p. m. We were conducted to the
home of Mr. David Hunt at Long Beaeh
by his two daughters,Misses Lily,Patty,
where we enjoyed a most delightful
stay of four days. Thursday night we
heard the welcome address and response,
then Lieut. Richmond P. Hobson ad
ressed the large audience at the Opera
House. Friday there was a general
discus'sion of the course of Study adopt
ed by our State. Very few changes
were suggested. Many leading educa
tors of Mississippi took part in this dis
cussion. Friday night the Normal
Training School was ably discussed by
Dr. F. B, Craighead, President of Tul
ane University, followed by Supt. Law
ton B. Evans of Georgia. This was in
deed a treat. There was no nodding or
whispering in the auditorium while this
illustrations speaker held the floor.
Bright, witty, spicy, yet full of common
sense. He is an artist at word painting.
One could see mentally the eager faces
of the children as they watched the
biddies come from the shell. Saturday
the excursion boats were launched and

three hours we floated upon therbroad
bosom listening to the flapping of the
sails and thinking, thinking, thinking.
Hiawatha in his birch-bark canoe pass
ed before unr mental vision; then the
c'ouds grew angry and a storm was on
the water, we heard “The last Hymn”
as the “singer dropped at last into the
deep blue sea.” Hut this was only a
dream for the water’s broad expanse
showed only a gleaming white cap here
and there while the sky above was
clear and calm. ’Twas an Ideal day for
such a trip. We saw the dunes on Cat
Island rise like snow clad mountain
peaks while further away to the left
the navy yard on Ship Island showed
plainly the light house and vessels in
Wnen nine miles out our vessel swung
’round and headed for the pier once
more. After landing and partaking of
a light luncheon we took a trolly car
for “Beauvoir.” There we saw the
Davis home in all its splendor Nothing
superficial but a simple elegance tiiat
displayed a refined taste One could
think naught,but noble,lnspiring thou
ghts within those white rooms or when
strolling beneath the shadows of those
ancient trees where the moss hangs in
profusion from their branches. It was
an heroic act for any man to give up that
home to fight, bleed and perhaps die.
Biloxi Is* the queen of the the coastal
cities. Its ancient houses surrounded bv
giant live oaks are very attractive.
We traveled for within sound of the
waves. Sunday we turned our faces
homeward and bade farewell to the
beautiful coast. As the train sped
along we could see the pine forests of
our south-land. Numerous saw mills
dotted the face of the country.
While waiting in Jackson for our
trains we visited the Insane, Blind and
Deaf and Dumb Institutes and the Cap
There were about two thousand in
attendance upon the State Association.
Soon we shall meet again in our nor
mal schools. May the time come soon
when Mississippi will rank among the
foremost Educational States.
