CLERK Mooting at St Helena Largely At tended and Important Matters Discussed The voters of School District No. 2, St. Helens and West St. Helens, met at the John Gumm School house last Monday night and took a vote on the consolidation of this district with District No. 39, being that portion of the old Houlton district which Is outside the city limits. The ' vote here resulted almost unanimous ly In favor of consolidation. At the same time the voters of District No. 39 also voted on the question and the vote there. was almost unanimous the other way, so that there will be no consolidation of the two districts for the present.

The re port of the clerk for the past Tear was read and some other matter) dlsoussed but no action taken.
