It's the last day of August. I'm so glad. I cannot tell you how glad I am. Because I have no idea why, August is always an odd month for me. I have no idea why. There are months that I just love, like June. I love June, because that's my birth month. I love March for spring and St. Patrick's Day....

While scoping the November 1909 Montreal Gazettes for any information on the Turner Exhibit or the Industrial Fair I came across two interesting articles about education, the education of Men and the Education of Women. Edith Nicholson of School Marms and Suffrgettes wrote in a November...
