Henderson County, Kentucky
At the instance of several parents who were anxious that their sons should be thoroughly educated, Prof. J. Lewis Cobb, of Augusta, Kentucky, an instructor, not alone of local, but of State reputation, came to Henderson two years ago and established a school upon a higher and more satisfactory basis than had ever been the case before. He is a thorough disciplinarian and holds his school under most excellent control. His large experience in teaching fits him eminently for the position, and as a matter of fact his compliment of students is easily kept up to its fullest number.
