Some time ago, one of the ring
members of the present School to,
Board thought it was unfair for in
the present Town sthorities to Cc
oharge the High School for tbe the
use of light and water and made a tic
motion that a committee appear M.
before the Council asking that vei
free light and water be continued
as in the past. Di

P! A warning to the American boy
to take full advantage of the high
school course of education lest his
foreign-born brother outstrips him
was recently made at a teachers'
convention at Syracuse, N. Y., by -
a prominent educator. There are
to-day at least forty vocations Sui
which require a high schbool edu- dee
cation by way of preliminary train
fing, and the boy who quits school VO1
before the four years' high school
course shuts against himself the
door of opportunity and makes it to
impossible for himself to enter thefit
vocations which aspire to be rank
ed with the professions. At the
P rate at which foreigners are com
e ing to our shores, that their chil
i dreu may have the benefit of the
r free schools of our country, there
is but one possible outcome if the
American boy does not apply him.
self as diligently as the boy from
foreign shores. Already places
