Ilolmes, teacher, and District No. 25, Miss Norah MoNaspy, teacher, neither had a oase ot tardiness up to the time of the superintendent's visit. District No. 46, C. F. Rum old, teacher, had one case. In Dis trict No. 01, E. E. Coulson, teacher, only one pupil had boen tardy, but several times. Our schools have made a line record so fnr. In compliance with the vote at the Juno School Board convention, we have secured a Term Classifica tion Register for every school in the county. They are paid for and can be obtained at the county superin tendent's oflioe. We will deliver them wherever possible. The teachers will understand that these are to be used only at the end of the term for classifying and record ing the standing of the pupils and classes. They were obtained at a surprisingly low price. Now is the time to get up a so cial, an entcrtcrtainment or a collec tion to buy a school library, Only $10.00. Why should not evory school in the county have one? The best proof, that they are a good thing lies in the fact that the dis tricts already having them aro ad ding from live to fifteen dollars worth to them this year.
