We have had our first frost.
We have 102 boys in attendance at the Academy.

S. L. Morley and Miss Jennie Clark, with Prof. Gabe Parker and wife, attended the Dallas Fair Saturday.
R. O. and J. R. Knight visited Bennington last Sunday. While there we learned that the entire town contemplated moving to the Arkansas & Choctaw Railroad when it was built through.
Mr. Alfred Folsom’s orchard yielded a great abundance of apples this year, which in size, quantity and appearance will compare favorably with the finest varieties of the northern eating apples.
Supt. Morley’s new store is about completed.
Mr. W. E. Ellis was on the sick list the first of the week.
Miss Minnie Morley is attending the Ft. Smith fair this week.
Mr. Author Rishel and Miss Ida Folsom attended the circus in Caddo Wednesday night.

Mrs. Mineheart of Ft. Smith has been appointed an assistant seamstress at the Academy and has been duly installed.
Willie Favor, one of the school boys, has quite a collection of foreign coins, among which is a silver piece of the Old Hawaiian Monarchy, decorated with the image of King Kalakan the 1st of those islands, and words of the native dialect stamped upon it.
A gang of ferocious stray dogs attacked our hogs in the pen in the dead hours of the night last Sunday night and would have killed several of them had not two of the boys, Doc James and Sam Jones, rushed out with clubs and succeeded in driving them off after a fierce combat.
