The attendance in the publie schools for tlie month clotting December 24 shows a total enrollment of 402, the number in each grade as follows: first grade 9«, second 55, third 63, fourth 74, fifth 30, sixth 3T, seventh 29, eighth 12, ninth II, tenth 10, East End school mixed grades 27, Crites school mixed grades 20. The average number l>e longfng during the mouth was 368, average dally attendance 347, per cent of attendance 94 3. The board employed an additional teacher who began work January 3 aa assistant In the seventh, eighth, ninth und tent h grades. This was necessary in order to relieve the overcrowded condition of the fourth, fifth and sixth grades, which occupied two rooms, thus giving two rooms to the fourth and fifth grades alone. Twenty-five new pupils have been admitted this week, bringing tbe total enrollment to date to 487, which Is greater than the enrollment for tbe en tire year '96 and '97. Owing to this large number of new pupils just re ceived, two other rooms are now crowded beyont, a reasonable uumb^r to do the most satisfactory work. Every seat in the schools is occupied when all pupils belonging are iu at tendance, and a few more new pupils in some of the grades would crowd the present capacity beyond convenience or comport. The need of more school room is alreudy very pressing and must soon lie provided, if all the children of the district are to lie afforded proper school privileges. Stereoptican Entertainment. Jas. E. Babb, one of tbe managers of the local board that has booked a series of lectures and entertainments for tbe season received wo-d yesterday ttiat A. R. Carrington would be here with his stereoptican entertainment Feb'y 18 and 19, Fri day and Saturday with Saturday mat inee. The entertainment includes the wonderful panorama of' the battle of Shiloh. ; A HAVE YOU A COUGH? j V WE HAVE some excellent cough mixtures and a big stock of Progs in your throat.

Perking of this city hag Invent | ed what lie cailg the Klondike gbovel. 1 The invention consista of adetatchable I handle for tbe ordinary impliinent. The advantage of the new article oyer j the old style is in the fact that it will ! not lie necessary for the prospector to 1 pack a shovel handle as one cau be : readily improvised wherever an ordi. nary stick of timber can be secured for the purpose. Tbe iuvention consists of a hitiued strap which forms a socket for the handle, tiiat is, at the same time u clamp. The handle of a ahovel is cumbersome as well aa heavy iu tbe ordinary pack. Tbe socket clamp will eiiubie tbe prospector to make a per fect handle with a pocket knife from a pole or branch of a tree. This new socket will soon doubtless tie used 011 all shovels as it will be neater and stronger than any other device in use. A perfect shovel handle attachment lias ioug been sought and this inven tion seems to meet the demand. The society people celebrated the in coming o' the new year by loiuing in the pleasures of the two graud balls of the evening. The military ball at tbe Oid Fellow's hall bad sixty-five couples and the Night Owl club at Masonic had uearly as large a crowd. At both places there was excellent music and an elegaut supper. They danced the old year out and gave tbe new year a happy and joyous greeting. Callers who were out on New Year's day were delightfully entertained by the ladies who kept open house. Mrs. Vollmer and Mrs. Hastings aud the young ladies who assisted them in their respective homes are responsible for inaugurating what will prove a very delightful custom of celebrating the New Year. Tbe city treasurer's report shows tiiat since July 1 there has been $1500 expended on tbe streets. At this rate t tie taxpayers are paying $3000 per year and are gettiug practically nothing In return. Btreet improvement that will —rove of permanent value ia what Lewiston need, for the new yeir. Is of A "Strike." The moat unique, pleasing und wholly eujoyable society event ever given in Lewiston was the bowling party of Wednesdav night. Mesdames Babb, Libby aud Kjos were highly successful in inaugurating and making popular this latest form of amusement. More thau 50 guests responded to the invitaticus seut out and gathered at the alley promptly at the hour an nounced. The room had been artistically decorated for the occasion with stream ers of bunting aud festoons of many colored tissue paper. The electric chandeliers were decorated and down the center of each alley were huug a row of Chinese lanterns. When every thing was iu readiness for the evening and the lights turned on the effect was very beautful. In the rear of the room, in the sec tion set apart for the spectators t he ladles bad arranged a reception room It was tastefully decorated with streamers of bunting and garlands of tissue paper. In the rear 01 the room was the punch bowl and Its array of sparkling glasses where during the progress of the game the guests were served with lemonade. The ladies received their guests at the stairway entrance and assisted by Messrs Babb, Libby and Kjos and Miss Ora Ketinedy they soon had every one happily provided for and engaged in the games at the alleys. Tbe usual score boards were doubled and 52 persons were engaged in the contest that lasted nearly two hours, every moment of which as devotees of the game know was one of enthusiastic Interest. After the main coutest an elegant luncheon of nut sandwiches, coffee, cake and Ice cream was served. Later tbe game was continued in smaller parties till 12 o'clock. Dr. F. W.
