THE TWENTIETH CENTURY COUNTRY WEEKLY.
BARNESVILLE, GA„ THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1902.
VERY INTERESTING OPENING EX
ERCISES—A LARGE ATTEND
ANCE FROM ALL PARTS OF
The fall term of Gordon Insti
tute, which is always a very im
portant occasion to the people of
Barnesville, opened Monday morn
ing and was attended by various
members of the board of trustees
and city council and quite a num
ber of citizens. The opening ex
ercises were quite interesting.
Rev. R. L. Bell, of McDonough,
who preached at the Presbyterian
church Sunday, read the scrip
ture and offered prayer.
Rev. C. W. Durden, in a very
happy little speech, welcomed the
pupils to Barnesville, speaking for
the citizens and for the churches.
Incidentally he stated that he had
heard it said that Gordon Institute
had as good a president now as the
institution had ever had, if not
just a little better and the state
ment was applauded vigorously
by pupils and visitors. He told
tiie pupils that they should learn
how to study that they might be
happy in their work. His talk was
bright and helpful and was appre
President G. F. Oliphant made
the announcements and a splendid
little talk. He promised all the
help possible from all the faculty.
Pupils should not look upon the
teachers as their enemies, but the
teachers were friends and there
to help the pupils.
Prof. Oliphant stated that all
the certificates had to be in by the
end of the first month and this
rule would be strictly enforced.
The tuition in the music depart
ment must be paid monthly.
All of the faculty were present
except Mrs. E. J. Nottingham,
who is detained a few days in
Macon. During her absence Miss
Maynita Arnold will have charge
of the music department.
A LARGE ENROLLMENT.
Prof. Oliphant says that the
enrollment is quite satisfactory.
There was 255 names enrolled Mon
day, which is equally as good as
the opening one year ago. He says
the drouth in certain sections has
hurt the school some and quite a
number expected the opening to
occur next Monday, instead of this
week, which caused confusion. The
enrollment, he thinks, will go
beyond 800 this week, which will
be largely increased next Monday
and during next week.

charge of each teacher:
