La-l W ednesday night about eleven o'clock Miss Grace Kothnell of Wil low Springs, who is attending school al Ciillelon College and doe house work at Mr. W. A. Kennedy's for her board, awakened Mrs. Masoti, Mr. Kennedy's daughter, and told her thai a man had grabbed ami gagged her at the back porch and carried ami thrown her into the well. Siio was dripping wet from her hair lo her feel, chilled through and hysteiical. Mis. Mason awoke her father, who immediately phoned for Dr. Blanks and Shciiff Croko. Mrs. Mason iu the uienutime disrobeil tho young woman of her drench'-d clolhiug, administered stim ulants and put her lo bed. It seems that Mr. Kennedy and Mrs. Mason had retired early and Miss Kolbwell stayed up to study her les sons. Ahoul 10 o'clock Mr. Mason, Mr. Kennedy's son-in-law, came iu, and seeing the young woman still up told her she had better go to bed and went on to his room. The story told i by Miss Kothnell is, that she continued , studying until about eleven o'clock, ' when she stepped out on to the back' porch, was seized ami c uiieil lo the by a man, gagged ; well and throw u ill, . The well is about j as ic Wed above :ln led ileen. and the water comes to within H or 10 feel of the lop. She says she went to the bottom, and us she alose lo the -ill lace cauglil on lo the jigged rocks and succeeded in climbing out and making her way to the house. A number of neighbors were at tracted by the excitement, nnd Sheriff 1'iokc and some of the men made il careful iuspeutioli of Ilif ground from the botie lo Ihe well.

It is probable that Miss Uothwell was laboring under some halluncialion that caused her to go In the well anil jump iu, or that she fell asleep while studying and In a stale of somiiabulisin walked lo Ihe well and jumped in, dreaming that she was being carried and thrown in by a mini. She had dreamed a few mgliis before that she fell into the well. Marriage Licenses. January 7th, Calvin II. Mills of Sle. Genevieve county and Miss Bessie McDiivid of Esther. Klh, Hichard A.

We are pleased lo leport a present enrollment of '.'1, being jusl one more student than our total enrollment of last year, and we have more than live mouths' school yet before us and every reason to belicvj thai this our second year's attendance will not lull much below the l.'iO mark. This means strictly individual sludenis, no one counted twice, and the ones taking combined euuisc work aie not, as most schools con-iiler, two, but as one lily. Surely the citizens of St. Fran cois and adjoining counties are realiz ing that Ihe most usable education of to-day is thai offered by the com mercial schools. Of course there are some exceptions, but thoru seems to bo no need of sous mid diuightcis spending thiec or four years in getting a general education, where an average young wuiuan can, in one year's lime, iu a Business College, be qualified to go out into the ollicc world and com mand a salary (not b or 6 months in a year) but 11 and 12 months. A hint to the wise sbouid be sufficient. President Moothart sent F'red Isen uiari lo Sle. Genevieve las: 'l ues day morning to assist Mr. Kim, tho Official Court Slcnogiapher. While Mr. Iscnman is not through with his steno graphic work, he is specially accurate and thorough in what ho dues, conse quently was selected to assist Mr. Kim. This is another instance showing that webave many calls for graduates and cannot sceommodalo those asking ofliec help or assistants. Mr. J. M. Malcom, who graduated in the business department of tbe Moothart School in DeSnto last year, was a very wclcomo and much inter ested visitor in our school this week. Mr. Malcom has gone into the furni ture business al Bismarck, and know ing him as we do, we predict success iu any enterprise he may undertake. A general code of regulations have gone into enect, and while wc are pleased In say that a few students really come under most of these rules, yet virtually all willingly comply with the demand of the school, and even bolter work is expected in the future than we have been getting in the past, which has been very satisfactory. Prof. Moothart has just issuod a new College Journal, entitled the New F.ducation. Ho will be pleased to send lo overy young person a copy of this journal free.
