Page three featured more news including reports about progress with the new cistern, the growing Apache babies, improvements to buildings, the moving of the boys' playground  to the east of the stables; attendance to the women's missionary society, including Capt. Pratt; visitors to the school; and work of pupil teachers. Page four continued the "Home Difficulties..." story.
