To Come Out As Canpidate
A special from Ctgumlms today
says, "Wlnflold S. KoJSr of Mansfield,
author and former congressman, Is
the latest factor in 1 10 Republican
gubernatorial sltuatio i. Wont was
received at the capltol Wednesday
chat tho formal announcement of
Kerr will bo forthcoming next week.
He will command a good folbwlng
from the start."
An effort was madeiby the News to
reach Mr. Keir In conndctlor with
tho above statement of tho ptospec
tlvo announcement of his candidacy
for governor but it was found that
Mr. Kerr is absent from tho city to
day. Mention was mado in the News
some weeks ago of tho probability ot
Mr. Kerr becoming a candidate for
the Republican nomination fqr gov
ernor and It Is regarded as not un
likely that there Is some basis for
the statement that his fornjal an
nouncement will bo forthcoming in
tho near future. ,
As also stated In the special from
Columbus, Mr. Kerr would undoubt
edly have a good following tiom the
start and In the event of his nomina
tion would make one of the! strong
est possible candidates that could be
put forward. '

Arid Complete in Every Re
spect is New Addition
To The Parochial School
N Building In This City
The New Addition Contains A
Recitation Rooms, Library
And Other Rooms
The Building Was Dedicat
ed On New Years
Tho now addition to tho Parochial
school building on N. McArthur st.
has been completed and the building
is almost in Tcadlncss for occupancy.
Tho building is very complete- In ev
ery way and la strictly modern In
overy sense. Tho basement Is com
pletely furnished with ovory means
of sanatatlon, running water, foul
and fresh air thafts disinfecting
apparatus and ventilations. Tho
boiler connected with the steam
pipes, which is used for heating, Is
of the latest pattern and is in a fire
proof room by Itself. This room Is
constructed of cement nnd Iron, mak
ing it absolutely safe.
The first flodr Is occupied by a hall
and a fine auditorium. The auditor
ium is sufficiently largo to accommo
date a large number of people and is
arranged in an Ideal position, havlns
windows on two sides through which
a large amount of light can be ob
tained. The stage is situated at tho
west side of tho room and the en
trance Is mlddloways between the
stage and tho rear of tho auditor
ium. Tho floors of all tho rooms in
this addition are of hard wood.
Tho second floor Is taken up by a
hall and two recitation rooms which
aro well arranged, facing the north.
The windows of these rooms give a
splendid view of the school yard and
High street, making It much moro
pleasant for tho students and tho
teachers. Tho walls aro beautifully
calclmined with a greenish blue. At
tho rear of a hall between the rooms
is a reinforced' concrete fire escape.
This fire escape Is very modern and
complies In every way with the state
laws. It Is safe, making It impos
sible for children to fall as they
might on one of the iron skeleton
escapes so commonly seen on public
buildings. The escape Is of a wind
ing nature and Is so built that it
can accommodate both upper floors
and tho'' basement, cndlne at 'the
south end of tho latter. Tho doors
to the fire escape aro a great im
provement on tho majority. They
open .outward and havo no locks
which require keys. There Is a fix
ture worked with a lever on tho In
side of tho building which springs
the locks and throws open the doors
at tho top of the escape, making it
absolutely safo with no possibility of
losing a key and making tho escape
Tho walls of tho building aro of
concrete between tho old and tho
now parts making it impossible for
fire to reach one section from 'the
other. Each floor is supplied with
a flro extinguisher in tho hall and
just under which is an electric but
ton, and by pressing this, a fire alarm
On tho second floor at tho east end
of tho hall running east and west Is
a neat little library and reading
room for tho younger pupils
Tho main entrauoe of tho build
ing Is on McArthur street nnd opens
into the main hall on the first floor.
In addition to tho new building, tho
rooms in tho old building havo n;en
cleaned and improved nnd tho walls
painted aud calclmined.
Tho now building was dedicat
ed Monday afternoon, tho blqsslng
taking placo In tho auditorium and
tho other services woro held in tho
Tho opening of tho now rooms will
necessitate one moro-teacher In tho
Tho work of constructing tho build
ing was done by Contractor William
Bounds of Mt. Vornon and the cost
of building was $1G,G00.

Found Ulissing From Uncle
Washington, Dec. 31. To count
the coins and securities In tho United
States treasury it has taken a com
mittee of four persons supervising
from 30 to 40 counting experts al
most two months.
Upon the retirement of Charles H.
Treat as treasurer it became neces
sary for a counting of tho contents
of tho vaults to be mado, and tho In
coming treasurer, Lee McClung, gave
a receipt for all valuables.
Next Monday Mr. McClung will give
to Mr. Treat a receipt for $1,259,
7GG.37 2-3, the exact contents of the
treasury. Not a cent was found to
be missing from Undo Sam's pocket
book. It was the quickest count ever
made by the treasury and was ab
solutely necessary before Mr. Treat
could be relieved of tho responsibil
ity of the office. The count includ
ed 15C, 521,317 dollar pieces.
Begins On February 9 An
This new year is iiablo to bo a
fumny proposition. Already some few
peculiarities aro noticed. For in
stance, Lent begins on February 9,
which is Ash Wednesday, and Easter
Sunday falls oni tho 27th of March,
Just six days later than the earliest
possible day It could fall on. This
will be tho earliest day for Easter
with but one exception in tho past
quarter century. Tho exception' be
ing March 25, 1894.
The fact that EaBter comes so early
makes the other church festivals fall
proportionately early. Palm Sunday
will be observed on March 20.
A good onion crop can bo predict
ed for St. Patrick's day, tho 17th of
March, is scheduled for tho begin
ning of a mild wave which will last
until the 22nd.
Good news for tho young lads.
Decoration day and the Fourth ot

comes on Sunday.

bill Is to throw more rigid protec

inmates of state institutions and les

Another bill provides that all bal
lots used at the elections shall be
designated on their back that they

object Is to prevent tho ballot from
being placed in the wrong bos and

all reasonable efforts to collect fees,
that they shall bo empowored to em

Another bill provides that the
