TAKEN AN APPEAL. The Marathon County Board of Education and some of the residents of the town of Weston have formed a new sfchool district, to be known as school district, No. 3, in the north portion of the town of Weston, ad joining the city of Wausau. An ap peal has been signed by four residents of the district, A. J. Hurd, John H. Jennings, W. J. Renneberg and Ernest A. Dunn and sent to C. P. Cary, state superintendent, for the following reasons: The school would be of benefit only to those living in the S WJ of Section 1 and in Kline Bros.’ Lake Park addi tion. Proper school facilities could be ob tained by joining in with the city of Wausau, either going into the city by petition or entering into some agreement in regard to the establish ing of a joint school district with the city, or with a little effort the chil dren might be allowed to attend the school at Schofield. The erection of a school in this ter ritory would not only be an injustice to the children, but to property own ers, for its presence will depreciate real estate and retard the develope ment and settling up of this district, which would on account of its loca tion be annexed to the city of Wau sau or connected with that city in a joint school district. At the meeting held a week ago officers were elected and were pub lished in last week's Pilot. The school site or building has not been decided upon and will not until they have heard from the state superin tendent. Dr. C.
