proved demand from the united king

strength in March. Our estimate is
for light world's shipments this week
other than America and the growing
scarcity of contract is causing much
apprehension here. Plata offers are
firmly held and Australian shipments
for the week are lighter and holders
there are asking an advance. The
strength in coarse grain is also effect

Rural school managers and patrons
may take advantage of one of the three
classes of state aid under the new law.
Class A provides state aid for a school
of four rooms, for which the state
pays $1,500 class B, three rooms, $1,
000 class C, two rooms, $750. In ad
dition the state will pay 25 per cent
of the cost of construction of a school
building, but no one payment can ex
ceed $1,500. The. consolidated school at
Comstock cost $12,000 for four rooms,
towards which the state paid the max
imum of $1,500 and in addition $600
a« a graded school, a total of $2,100
and besides that six miles of state
road was constructed, the maintenance
of which is paid by the state. To en
Joy state aid the schools must teach
elementary agriculture, domestic econ
omy and manual training. The build
ings must be subject to the regular
inspection by the duly appointed rural
school inspector. While one or two
districts tributary to Baker were in
clined to be averse to any change it
is thought when all the advantages
are properly understood there will be
a splendid equipped consolidated school

vides that there is* due the village, of

incorporation of the village, less out
