JUNE 21. 1912. $2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE SCHOOL BOARD HOLDSJEETING DISCUSS COMPLETION OF PRE SENT BUILDING—WILL SUB MIT QUESTION TO VOTE. The school board of district No. 55 met last Saturday night with all mem bers present except Mr. Brown. Sev eral small business matters were dis posed of and a large number of bills ordered paid. At this meeting the board discussed the advisability of completing the present school building. The present j building will be entirely inadequate in size this coming term. Two rooms will have to be rented in this city for the purpose of accomodating all the children. Last year the Roundup schools had eight teachers and the coming term there will be 10.

The cost of comple tion of the school house is estimated in the neighborhood of $18.000. DIGEST LATE LAHO LAWS _ ! if.TEr.EGTING INFORMATION RE GARDING WHO MAY AND MAY NOT TAKE UP LAND. A citizen of the United States loses' his citizenship only by expatriation. Certain civil and political rights may be forfeited because of an infamous 1 crime, but the status of citizenship, remains with al! the rights, privileges, etc., of citizens in general, except such as may have been forfeited or taken j away. Therefore a citizen of tlie ; United States who lias been convicted o: ." felony and not pardoned is e-Fg, ble to make a public land entry. Cultivation of the land by the widow or heirs of a deceased entrymau under, the provisions of section 220n R. S. it.;, t begin at the first cropping sea son after entrymnn's death. The law of cultivate..!, require# a continuity of cultivation. An American citizen who enter# public lands in Canada and takes the oath prescribed to perform that act. does not thereby necessarily expatriate himself from citizenship in the United States. It requires an oath of alleg iance to a foreign government to ef fect. expatriation. The preference right ot entry award ed to a successful contestant is not an absolute and unconditional right to make entry re gardless of the'status of the land at the time of cancellation of the contested entry. It is only the preferred right, to the exclusion of other applicants, which entities the contestant within the preference right period to make entry if the land be subject to entry under application as he shall present, but he can only make such entry as may be appropriate, consideration being given to the sta tus of the land at the time he tenders application. The continued occupancy of land by a claimant and itis liberal cultiva tion and substantial cultivation there of, made after the submission of final proof, is strongly indicative of an land en an en and may be acquired, it he land falls aiu. ami r 1 ." original pu rpose to n uiku a grit ultm.
