The reception given by the students of
the Ashland State Normal School last
Friday night was a decided success in
every respect. A very large assemblage
of city people attended, ami, together
with altout a hundred Normal students,
made a large gathering.
The foremost part of the evening was
made enjoyable by an interesting pro-
