HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
Items of Interest to the Patrons
The Hereford public school
opened Monday morning at 9 o'clock
with an attendance of 264 students
showing that we are going to have
all the students our building will
hold before the school has hardly
Owing to the fact that our seating
capacity is limited our trustees have
decided best to only have nine grades.
Also we were sorry to see so many
turned away who were out of the
school age. Why can't our citizens
go down in their pockets and make
more room for our youug people who
are continually asking for admittance
into our public school?
Our school has done excellent for
this, the first week.
All are now classified and are
strictly at business.
We have noticed one thing pecu-
liar with our school. All the grades
have about the -same number of pu-
pils from the 1st to the 8th, eacn
containing about .30 in number.
We are well pleased with the in-
terest taken in the different rooms.
Now parents give us your hearty co-
operation, insist on your child's
studying at home and see that no
absent or tardy marks appear on his
or her reports.
Owing to an unavoidable delay
in the arrival of desks, the opening
was postponed from the 1st to the
8th of the month.
Judge Connell made a brief visit
to each room, noting enrollment, etc.
The division of grades is as
Principal, W. A. Smith, 9th grade ;
first assistant, C. E. Edwards, 8th
and part of 7th ; Miss Nunley, part
of 7th and 6th ; Miss Stewart, 5th
and part of 4th ; Miss Dameron,
part of 4th and 3d ; Miss DeGraff-
enreid, 1st and 2d.
The members of the faculty will
be glad to have the citizens and pa-
trons visit the school at any time,
and will appreciate the co-operation
of parents and guardians in making
this the most successful term of the
Hereford Public School.
Our millinery goods have been de-
layed in transit and it will be impos-
sible for us to have our opening on
the 15th, as we expected. We will
notify you of the event as soon as

Another School HouiJe.
It is with pleasure that we report
that the citizens living in the H. H.
Stanley neighborhood, six :ni;es
south of town in Castro county, are
to have a school building. Hereto-
fore the children of the neighbor-
hood have been congregating at the
residence of H. H. Stanley, where,
under the tutorage of Miss Lenna
Greer, they have been initiated into
the mysteries of the "three R's",
but with the rapid settlement of this
country more commodious quarters
are made necessary, there being
enrolled in the school at the present
time the goodly number of 17, with
more to come as soon as the building
is finished. Mrs. Stanley and Miss
Greer were in town Tuesday solicit-
ing aid for the building fund, and
as the Hereford people are ever
ready to help along an educational
enterprise, we feel safe in stating
that the building will be erected at
