a School for the Blind. The International School for the Blind at this plsce, opened on Wednesday Wednesday last, anjl the regular routine of school work is now in progress. Owing to the small pox scare in . various various parts of the country, the full number of pupils expected to be in attendance, have not' yet arrived. Mi. I. W. Rowlands father of the Principal, Miss Lura A. Rowland, is acting in the capacity of assistant book keeper, and assists his daugh- terin various ways in the business, management of the institution. Mrs, I. W. 1 Rowland is general matron; matron; Prof. C. E. Harmon of Gann I. T., teacher of literary and piano tuning, and Miss Mamie E. Graham, of Green Forest, Ark. teacher of vocal vocal and instruuieta! music, Mr. and Mrs. Rowland reside near Fayettville Ark., and are not here, for the sake of gain, but because their daughter both needs and deires their protection protection and assistance while she is struggling to get her school on a firm financial, basis. They are capable, wide awake; - and entergetie people; and their assistanc in the school will be of great value to Miss Rowland, and to all concerned. Prof. C. E. Harman is a thorough graduate in literary, piano tuning, and in various industrial trades; and the principal is to be congratulated upon her success in securing the services of such an efficient genii man. The competency of Miss Graham as music teacher has already been demonstrated to the people of Fort Gibson. With the present corps of officers and teachers nothing is to prevent this instftution from becoming one of the leading lights of the Territory, if the people will only come to her assistance and render her the financial financial aid that is necessary for the support support of such a school.
