...CITY SCHOOL NOTES..
1 — - - W EDITORS: HELEN SHILL ^ | EARL M'GINNIS \ n At the beginning of last week there were 465 pupils in the various rooms. Some changes were nrj.de since, below the fifth grade, in order to distribute the pupils more equally, and now ev erything is in the best of shape for a year of successful work. In order to give pupils and teachers an opportunity to visit the fair, there will be vacation on Thursday and Fri day afternoons. In view of this ar rangement there will be no occasion for absence at other times. Pupils should show their appreciation of the kindness of the trustees in granting this holiday by allowing nothing to hinder their attendance at school on other days. A problem in percentage: If a pupil is absent one half day in each week, what percent of the class work does he lose? If each pupil in a school of 470 pupils is absent one half day each week, how much money is lost to the district when the levy amounts to $6,000? What percent of the loss in each case can be made up? How? Answers should be sent to the editors of this de. artment. The children in the kindergarten are studying about apples. They are cut ting and drying the fruit. They seem to enjoy it very much. The kinder garten is a great treat to the little folks, as they learn so many useful things. The 8th A pupils are now working hadr to finish the course in order they may enter the high school some time January. The 8th B's are studying the Great Stone Face, one of Hawthorne's popu lar stories. The 8th A class has just started a very interesting story, Enoch Arden, one of Alfred Tenneyson's most popu lar stories. This story is receiving very careful study under Miss Ful ton's direction. The 8th A grade has just taken up the study of civics and find it very hard, never having had it before, with three lessons a week to finish in half a vear means work. The 8th B and A grades are both do ing well in arithmetic this year. Mrs. E. E. Brewer, the music teach er of the Fergus County High School, Notice of Forfeiture.

Florence Culver is playing a very pretty march this week which keeps all of the children stepping along. The pupils in the assembly room are enjoying the opening exercises as con ducted by Mr. Silloway. At present they afe learning something of the ear ly history of Montana.
