CHANGE COURSE High School Faculty to Have All Study a Language.—^Teach Do-' If. mettle Science. Dotnostlc science whicti Includes the art of sewing and cooking wilt be tatixht to the youni? ladles of the lola High School next year. Prof. Muy- berry apd I*rlnclpal ^^^shard have Just completed the arransement of the high school course of study for next year and yesterday It was announced to the pupils that these two branches of study wou'd be introduced Into the school next year. It is the plan to flt up one of the rooms in the high school building with cooking stoves and utensils, sewing machines, etc. The first two years of the course of domestic science will be taught while the Junior or third year girls will be taught how to make good things to eat One of the features of the course for next year is the fact that every student will be required to take either two years of Latin or German. The French Is to be dropped from tha course. Other requirements are two years of mathematics and history; three of EInglish and one of science. As yet no teacher has been secur ed for the domestic studies, but there will probably be no dlSBculty in securing such a teacher. The high schools at Kansas City and Topeka have been teaching these two suhjects with great success for' several years. The lola schools have been contem plating putting these studies into the course for some time. The girls received the news with much enthusi asm. ."0 -!nrh I/iose-back ,Coals *in light and dark liiixlures: also black, nicely frimmejl.

Gosborn vs. the I t-'ity of lola had lntro<luc .Hl its sec ond witness, indicating that the case I would not be closed today. So far i very little, if any, startling testimony I to bear out the contentions of the plaintiff has been brought out. Y'es-j tcrday afternoon several of th.' Democratic councllmen who were present at a meeting with .Mayor Robinson in the office of Oylcr & Barnes. I shortly before the new council w;>nt Into office, were placed on the stand in an effort to corroborate the ti 'Sti- niony of Dr. Glynn that JIayor Robinson had said at this meeting that he; would apiioint no one to office who \ cpi)osed him, but the comicilraen fall- fd to remember the statement, if it was made. This morning C. .7. Doxsee was placed on the stand for the jjurpose of showing that Mayor Robinson had told him that .he (Robinson) would resign before he would appoint Mr. Goshom city attorney. Mr. Doxsee said that Mr. Robinson had never made such statement to him. He said, however, that he (Doxsee) had told the mayor that if he* were mayor he would resign before he would a^ l>oint Goshom city attorney. Several attorneys then tmik the stand and testified to the effect that In their o|)inion Mr. Goshom was nnallfled to fill the office. \M»en the plaintiff rested, the city demurred to the evidence but the demurrer was overruled. Judge Collins was the first witness for the city this afternoon. He testified that he had known .Mr. Goshom since 1S89 and that when Mr. Robinson has asked him If he thought Mr. Goshom caiutble o ffilling the office of city atorney. he told the mayor he did not think so. County Attorney Peterson was then called to the stand. He testified that Mayor Robinson had asked him what he thought about appointing Mr. Gosh orn city attorney and he had told the mayor that he did not think such an appointment would be wise. He also said, speaking with reference to the signed statement of a number of attorneys, that Mr. Gosborn was capable of filling the office, that he told Mr. Robinson It was only a Joke as he had talked with a number of the attorneys who signed the statement with reference to Mr. Goshom's ability and they did not believe what the statement conveyed. Mr. Peterson was on the stand at press time. Several Applications Will be Voted Upon Tonight Also.
