Minutes of the Cowley County Teachers’ Institute.
Agreeable to the call of the County Superintendent of Public Instruction, the teachers of Cowley County met in annual institute on Monday, Sept. 11th, at 9 o’clock a.m. On account of sickness in his family, Mr. Wilkinson was unable to attend, and the duty of conducting the Institute devolved on Prof. A. B. Lemmon.
The Institute organized by electing the following officers: President, Mr. D. [E.] M. Snow; Vice President, Mr. H. M. Bacon; Secretary, Miss M. A. Bryant. Messrs. Robinson, Bacon, and Millard, and Misses Cowles and Roberts were chosen a committee on query box.
The summary of the work done by the Institute during the four days session is as follows: Prof. Lemmon delivered a series of lectures on school management, taking up and developing plans for the organization and government of schools. In connection with these lectures, the teachers were led to take a part in the discussion of the theories and plans advocated by the lecturer. This exercise was heartily appreciated by all, and it is hoped it will lead our teachers to a more careful and thorough study of their work.

Snow brothers, Miss Laura Snow...
Winfield Courier, December 21, 1876.
A team belonging to one of the Snow brothers ran away last Tuesday, starting from Moore’s Mill, south of town, and closing their mad career by running over a sulky plow, upsetting the wagon and running against the fence of Maris’ lumber yard. The romance of the event was represented by Miss Laura Snow, a young lady of sixteen years, who was in the wagon holding to the lines and guiding the team, not being able to stop them. Forty men tried to stop the team as it rushed through Main Street, but their efforts resulted in more harm than good for it prevented the brave young lady from keeping the centre of the road and resulted in an upset. The scene closed with some bruises, but nothing serious.
