CHANGE MADE IN
As had been anticipated, thc
State Board of Education has
changed the school districts, creat?
ing a new o..c for Williamsburg
alone. James City was tacked on
to New Kent aod Charles City.
Making this city a separate school
district was done at the request of
the Williamsburg school board
which also recommended Dr. Ben?
nett as division superintendent.
For the new cistrict composed ef
Charles City. New Kent and James
City, the board has also ap?
point Mr. W., B. Coggin, who is
recognized as one of the ablest
dividion superintendents in the state.
As long as this city can secure the
very efficient services of sucn a dis?
tinguished educator as Ur. Bennett,
the arrangement will, of course,
prove satisfactory. Should the of?
fice be vacated soon, however, the
State Board will probably add this
city to the counties mentioned above.
Il Ts to bc hoped, for thc good of
the schools that no further changes
will be found necessary soon.

Editor Ihe Gazette:
Have you noticed the following
points of similarity? Tue name of
our President elect begins with the
same letter as the-name of our first
president?the father of his country.
Toe first since Washington to begin
with W. Then too the name .end
with the same letter, in fact with
the same two letters. Again the
names contain the same number of
letters. Now I hear some one say
that is wrong, but stop, our first
president was never George but
'Geo." President Washington was
just fitty-seven years of age when
he was inaugurated, and Mr. Wilson,
when he takes the chair, will be in
his fifty-seventh year.
Have we not a right to expect
something very big? We trust he
may make tor himself and for his
country a great name.?one tbat shall
riva the three great names, Wash?
ington. Jefferson and Jackson.
Another musing I have had. Thc
names given by their parents seems
to have been too burdensome foi
the only Democratic president since
the war and our Democratic presi
dent elect. Can't they run faster
you reckon? Tnev scemtd?to thin*
they had too much name or to<
many names. Cleveland droppei
his first name. Stephen, and Wilso
dropped his first name, Thoma.
Were they thinking of the martyi
Stephen, and the doubting Tnomas
ve and. at the close of his secon
administration, was a martyr to
strict sense of duty. Wc hope Wi
son will not doubt. To doubt is I
