: Necessity has improved . a new .use
for the automobile. Word has come
from Philadelphia that one garage
manager, in building an addition to
his place of business, has made use
f a. touring: ear to operate' an "eleva
tor: . ,
When the problem, arose of hoisting
bricks and mfiriart-qtche upper floors
a . rope was Uta fcheT to the elevator,
Rasped-" over "suitable "pulleys, at the
-top and bottom and ' secured to the
rear axle of the car. To raise the
elevator the oar is- run about sixty
feet,-this being sufficient to bring the
elevator to the second floor. The in-
terrals at which the hoisting is done
'. calls for" about three or four hours of
: work from the car each day, but in
spite of the ' strenuousness of this
hoisting, the car is apparently none
; the -worse for wear.
Only about five gallons of- gasoline
, are used in three days for this purpose
and the manager claims he is saving
'" himself in the neighborhood of $60
a.':wtlok in labor. The car is said - to
do the work of about five hod car
riers and save the additional annoy
ance of handling o many men. fAt
night the automobile is unhitched-ih-a
minute and stands ready to take the
garage" manager to his residence. Not
"infrequently it is called upon to do
numerous errands during the day. Al
together it is a very busy automobile
and a splendid example of what a
modern, reliable, motor car can stand.

The public schools of this city in
cluding the high school will be open
ed Tuesday, Sept. 10, leaving the pu
pils until Sept. 9, to close their much
appreciated summer vacation.
.Although the Grammar schools have
been renovated extensively to receive
the probable increase of the incom
ing classes the high school students
will nevertheless have to content
themselves - .with the old , red school
house on the hill.
. There will be no increase in the
seating capacity, but judging from the
numbers which graduated from the
Grammar schools, the new freshman
class will be of an unusually large
size. The Sophomore, Junior and
Senior classes which will be organiz
ed at the opening'-of the 1912-ia school
year., are all respectively larger than
their predecessors, which fact predicts
an overcrowded condition. For this
reason the school facultj- with the
Principal, ' Mr. Simonds, and ithe - en
tire school as wed 1 as all those inter
ested in the welfare of the young stu
dents are eagerly awaiting the build
ing of the new high school... ,
This new - school will undoubtedly
have such improvements as a gym
nasium, an auditorium large enough to
accommodate school plays and grad
uation, exercises, besides a .thoroughly
modern, laboratory all of which the
present school lacks'. This school will
also present an appearance creditable
to the city; one which will compare
favorably with those in other cities
of New England.
Under the direction of David Ginand
the Bridgeport schools have been put
into a sanitary condition, y neither la
bor nor expense having been spared
in the general .cleaning up. Consider
able additional work has been done
throughout the schools to make them
comfortable for the new school year.
The school house now nearing comple
tion on Poplar street is expected to
relieve the present congested condi
tiojis in the Maplewood and Clinton
avenue institutions.
To further accommodate the young
people, a new school to be called
"Whittier" will be erected in the West
End, and another on Commercial St.
An addition to the Myrtle Avenue
School is also in the course of con
struction. '
The work of ., flooring the Clinton
Avenue and- High Schools has been
completed. ; T Refinished desks, new
slate- black-boards, also fresh coats
of paint and varnish, with several
coats of whitewash in the cellars,'
are 'among the interior repairs.
' Those schools which were repaint
ed " throughout are the Nichols St.,"
Newfield, Hamilton St., Staples, Hunt
ington Road, Oak St, Gra.nd St., and
'Sterling street schools. New roofs,
where needed, completed the repairs.
1 With these endeavors - on the part
of the Board of Education to keep the
schools in a strictly sanitary condi
tiohs, it is hoped that all the pupLls
will appreciate their efforts by at
tempting to maintain a correspond
ing sta&e of cleanliness through the
entire school jear.
PhiladelpfiLa,, Aug. 20.' Widespread
reports mat John Wanamaker, the
noted mercnant and Republican poli
tician was seriously ill were circulate
ed.and generally credited here, to
day. - Although these reports were
most circumstantial, officials at the
Wasamaker store and the private sec
retary of the former postmaster gen
eral insisted he was not only en joy r
ing good health but that he was in
Atlantic City on a vacation.
The report-of his illness, stated-that
he: was stricken in-" his- office, ?two
weeks ago and removed , to Bretton
Woods. Failing t recover he was
brought toack vhere and . was operated
on for aai intestinal complaint of long1
standing. Wanamaker, the reports
said, raUied from the operation but
was still -in a serious condition. Wan
amaker is 74 years of age.
