PEARL HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
Never before in the history of this
school have prospects been so bright
for a successful year. Teachers and
pupils appear to be glad that school
days have come again and all seem
readv for a year of hard work. From
the experience of the past two weeks,
one would conclude that some good
resolutions had been made during the
summer and new hopes created In the
bosom of the children. They are go-
inn at their work with a will and a
determination which means the high
fst success. The school is crowded.
There is not a vacant seat and chairs
and the laps of desks have to be used
in order to accommodate the children,
The principal sticks to his rule of
past years to seat every pupil, and to
turn no one away unseated. Bad chil
dren have no terrors for the faculty of
this school. If there is a vacancy a
bad child is as welcome to it as a good
one. This faculty regards a mean, dis
obedient, stupid or idle boy as good
material to show their skill as teach
ers, it may not ue generally Known
that this public institution has on its
faculty eight college graduates, some
of whom have also won professional
degrees. No other High School in the
country can show a faculty better
trained or educated.
The addition of Prof. Hardy Keith
and Miss Elizabeth Moore, who have
charge of the Manual Training and
Domestic Science Departments respec
tively increases the standing and dig
nity of the school. In selecting these
two new teachers, great care waa exer
