In this city we have two institutions, one, St. Mary's Academy in care of the Sisters of the Holy Names, has stood the test of years and is now at the head of the educational establishments for young ladies in this country. St. Michael’s College, an establishment of but a recent date, has under the able management of its principal, Rev. A. J. Glorieux, and the supervision of Very Rev. J. F. Fierens, gained the favor of not only Catholics but also many liberal and unbiased non-Catholics.

There is certainly not a Catholic parent in the city who does not intend to send his or her children to either one of these excellent schools, being assured that their moral training is of paramount interest.
