Nineteen Teachers and No Place to Sleep What is Gilbert to do with the en larged faculty of teachers who will be on hand this fall? This question is disturbing the minds of the more thoughtful of the community, for at present there are no arrangements made whereby the number can be cared for. Eartley Skinner of the Gil bert bank, speaking yesterday of the situation, stated that there is a splen did opportunity for some woman with a little means to erect a house and have rooms ami board for the teachers, providing a parlor and other conven iences, such as may reasonably be ex pected.

Finally, after some days of effort, he became' dis gusted and said he would go back to and which he intends o'ecupying when which to 'live. Mr. Carden is having a great deal of trouble getting his store building completed. No bricklayers are available, and workmen for the front are equally hard to find. Dis cussing the matter jesterday. he said that about the best thing for him to do appeared to be to go to farming and wait until some time and somehow a workman or two would happen along who would aid him in getting his ma sonry completed.
