The larger schools closed on May 23 with the exception of St. Helens, which will close on June 6. The p.nnual school meeting will be held on June 16. Necessary supplies for this meeting have been sent to all clerks. Teachers' salaries have advancea for the coming year and the teach ers will not be slow in advancing their own qualifications and re quirements. The summer normal will be most popular.
