The Misses Shirey, daughters of Rev. J. D. Shirey, have taken charge of the Mt. Pleasant Female Seminary, vice Rev. J. A. Linn, who has resigned the position of Principal to accept work elsewhere. The Misses Shirey are well qualified for the duties thus devolving upon them. They are graduates of an excellent college and have had experience in teaching.
