the political straws are certainly
pointing towards Hearst for the

Loryea has his windows attractively

account run about two years before of

learn how much he owed. "Why," says -

Thirty Dollar Libraries for Ten Dollars.
The library bill means simply this:
The State Board will give $10 and the
County Board $10 to twelve schools in
the county, provided the schools will
raise 10 by private means.
Five schools in the western part of
the county and one in Salem have noti
ied us that their $10 have been raised:
six others can come in, which we hope
they will do at once.
The county's portion is ready now
and the State's will be in a few days.
We are anxious to bave the libraries
established before the school term ends
so that the children get the books to
read during vacation.
We earnestly request all the teach -
ers that can possibly do so attend the
association on the fourth Saturday,
2th, as we wish to consult them in ref
erece to summer school matters.
