                                                      Our Winfield Schools.
The Winfield Public Schools closed a nine month’s term last Friday. To see how the “rising generation” was taught to shoot ideas in our city, we visited, in the order named, the Higher, Intermediate, and Primary Departments last Thursday. The school never having been visited by an “item chaser,” it is not neces­sary to say that one was not expected at that time. We found the “house in order” however, and the floor occupied by Prof. Lemmon, and a corps of handsome young ladies engaged in a hand-to-black­board contest with “tenths, hundredths, thousandths,” and that little “period” that causes so much trouble with amateurs in decimal fractions. They soon proved themselves mistresses of the situation. . . . We next paid a visit to the INTERMEDIATE DEPARTMENT, presided over by that successful teacher, Miss Jennie Greenlee. . . .

Now we come to the PRIMARY DEPARTMENT, in charge of Miss Ada Millington. This is the most difficult department to manage in any public school. . . . Though her first school, Miss Millington has proven what her friends predicted, that she would make a very successful teacher.
The following students passed the required examinations and received teacher’s certificates: Misses Mary E. Lynn, Maggie Stansberry, Kate Gilleland, Sarah Bovee, Amy Robert­son, Ray Nauman, Ioa Roberts, C. A. Winslow, and Mrs. Estes.

D. Bovee...
Winfield Courier, June 26, 1879.
Farmers in this locality are in fine spirits. They are looking forward to the day not far distant when they will market their crops at Wichita prices in our vicinity, as the L., L. & G. has made its survey down Coda creek and we are sure to get a depot at New Salem, and with as good a country as will surround a town here, the day will not be far distant when New Salem will be seen a flourishing city with her thoroughfare, her parks, and her church spires towering toward the heavens, and the sound of her bells will arouse and call us up to the house of God on the Sabbath.
We think Mr. D. Bovee, Joe. McMillen, and Mr. Hoyland have three of as fine farms as there are in Cowley county. New Salem is a pleasant place to live. There is good society, the Sabbath day is kept, we have two religious societies, Presbyterian and Methodist, with services twice a day, a good Sabbath school, and plenty of enjoyment for young folks, such as croquet, socials, and occasionally they trip the light fantastic too to the music of a 4 stringed instrument. This was the pastime a few evenings ago as our friend J. J. had just completed his fine residence, a few of his friends concluded to give him the benefit of a house warming, and while J. R. McCoy and D. W. P swung the bow, the young folks tripped the light fantastic.
Quite a number in this vicinity will spend their 4th at the city of Winfield, notwithstanding they are under some obligation to go to Floral on that day.
Sarah Bovee...
Winfield Courier, August 14, 1879.
The Normal is now in fair running order, and the teachers are getting down to hard, solid work. Profs. Wheeler, Story, and Trimble, with their corps of assistants, are working like bea­vers, and there is a united feeling among teachers and pupils to make the time count. The teachers in attendance number 117, and seem as intelligent and as capable of training the young ideas as can be found anywhere.

Julia Bovee...
Winfield Courier, February 26, 1880.
The oyster supper gotten up by Dr. Knickerbocker, Mr. Casper, Thursk, and others, was an enjoyable affair. At the close of the meeting a handsome cake, made by Mrs. Rachel C. Harlow, was given to the best looking girl present. After an hour’s earnest contest, the vote stood: Miss Hattie McKinley, 73; Miss Julia Bovee, 56; Miss Emma Williams, 65. Miss McKinley got the cake. The contest brought in $9.80 for the cake.

                                                             Tin Wedding.
One of the most complete and successful surprises that ever occurred in this vicinity took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Douglass on the evening of January 25th, it being their tenth wedding anniversary, and their friends gave them a surprise tin wedding. About seven o’clock in the evening, as Mr. Douglass and lady were entertaining a friend, and discussing the events of ten years ago, their home was surprised and taken by a company of twenty-two of their friends, and the bride and groom of ten years made prisoners in their own castle, and after the usual greetings, and the company had become seated, several packages were deposited on the center-table, and Mrs. Theodore Pixley addressed the bride and groom elect for the evening. Mr. and Mrs. Douglass then stepped forward; and for the first time began to realize the object of the meeting, when Mrs. Pixley delivered her short address and presented the packages.  Mr. Douglass thanked their friends for so kindly remembering them on their tenth wedding anniversary. Prof. Hall then gave a toast on tin weddings, and Mrs. Pixley presented Mr. and Mrs. Douglass with a letter from friends in Illinois, which divulged the fact that a portion of the presents were from friends far away, and that they had taken an active part in this surprise through the instrumentality of Mrs. Bovee, and had sent a share of the presents that were then shining so brightly in the lamp light by her. The company after enjoying themselves for a couple of hours at games and different kinds of amusements, were invited by the ladies to take tea and cake, and their baskets were brought forth well filled, and the host and hostess were invited to sip with them. After supper the company dispersed, wishing the bride and groom of ten years many returns of their wedding anniversary. The following are the names of parties giving, and a list of the presents.
The following presents were received from New Salem friends.
Mr. and Mrs. D. Bovee, bridal wreath.
Miss Sarah Bovee, tin cup and tin comb.
Miss Julia Bovee, wash pan.

As Mrs. Bovee of Tisdale Township was walking along the street Tuesday, she slipped on one of the crossings and fell, wrenching one of her limbs severely. She was taken up and carried into Ed. Weitzel’s house. The injuries were not serious and we hope Mrs. Bovee will soon recover.

Quite an agreeable surprise occurred at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. D. Bovee, at New Salem, on the evening of June 23rd. A company of twenty-one ladies and gentlemen called on them just as they were about to retire for the night and put them in remembrance of the fact that it was the 25th anniversary of their wedding and they had come to help them celebrate it. While Mr. and Mrs. Bovee were receiving and making their guests comfortable, a few of the ladies were in the dining room preparing a wedding feast from their well filled baskets, which they had prepared and brought along for the occasion. By the time the host and hostess had their guests comfortably seated, the dining room door was swung open and Mr. and Mrs. Bovee were invited to supper, and acquainted with the fact that they were expected to be the guests of their friends for the evening.
