There will be no recesses. On Thanksgiving Day school will be iu session from nine until half past en and it is expected that the var- iovs rooms will nave exercises ap propriate to the day. It was decided to advertise at once lor tlie liigu ocnooi oonut. ind the secretary was instructed to prepare the necessary auverusc- ment. Architect Grant was present and went over with the board the plans ind specifications of the proposed buildingexplaining to the members every minutest detail, rue ooaro entered into a formal contract with Mr. Grant for plans and specifica tions, and as they are almost com peted, bids for the construction of the building will soon be advci- tised, The new building is to be built mmediately in front of and adjoin ng the present one. The ell of the present building which contains only halls and stairways, will be torn down and a temporary stair way will be built at the rear of the building to be used until the new buildinir is completed. By follow ing out this plan school will not be nteriered with during the construe tion of the new building and at the same time the portion of the old structure which is good will be tor use in the future as reel tation or lecture rooms. The new edifice will contain thirteen rooms besides the superintendent's, jani tor's and fuel rooms. The superin dent will have a suite of three rooms, and there will be a fuel and boiler room and also a dark room to be used for chemical experiments, rherc will be enough rooms to ac commodate all of the pupils who are now attending school iu the high school building, all of those attending the Unitarian hall and the Baptist church and about 200 more.
