Pretty is as Pretty Does
Is an old expression that dealt with personality.
It's just as true in a business way. If yeu are
well treated by a merchant you go again, and
thr results are that if his goods arc satisfactory
you may become a permanent customer. The
treatment you receive at Folsom s jewelry store
is calculated to make and give you such values
ami w.ukmansrip as will please you and bring
you lack aain. Keep this in mind, then, and
when you are looking around remember it pays
to trad, where "MERIT IS THE MOTTO."

In Primary Grades.
The board of education at its
monthly meeting last evening or
dered that plans and specifications
lor the nigh school improvement be
in readiness bv the 21st of the pres.
ent month. The architects, Drack &
Kerns, raid they would use their ut
most endeavor to carry out the
board's instructions, so that con
tractors may have an opportunity to
examine the p'ans, a number of
which will be gotten out, and have
their bids in by the last of the month,
by which time the board hopes to be
able to let the contract. The Sttide
vant company, of Boston, and the
Buffalo Forge company, of Buffalo,
were also instructed to prepare plans
at once for the heating plant to be
installed in the building.
The board fixed the date of the
spring vacation for the week of
March 21-25, as suggested by 8upt.
It. O. Young. The county institute
is to be held daring that week at the
High school. The monthly report of
Supt Young submitted to the board
says in part: "The month of Maroh
will bring a very considerable in
crease in the enrollment owing to the
formation of new classes in the pri
mary grades at the opening of the
spring term. Match 25. It is impos
sible to predict with any degree of
certainty what the increase will be,
but as new pupils have not bsen re
ceived since October it is quite prob
able the enrollment of new pupils
will be large. It is certain to badly
crowd tho primary grades, as most
of them are already well filled. We
shall be compelled to hold rigidly to
the role of the board and receive
none who are under 6 years of ago."
Mr. Young states that during the
past month the teachers of Kemble
school have organ. zd a mothers'
meeting, an organization designed
to bring the mothers of that sub-dis
trict and the teachers together for
the purpose of discussing matters of
mntual interest pertaining to the
welfare of the children attending
that school. There was an attend
ance of over one hundred at the ini
tial meeting. Monthlv meetings will
be held during the remainder of the
morning school year.
There has been a great improve
ment in the attendance and punctu
ality of the schools during the
month. The days of absence hare
been decreased by 615, the cases of
tardinnss 16, and the average dauy
attendance has increased 21.
