Tho Pit ess has taken occasion,
since tho last issue, to feel tho
public pulse on the school ques

something must be done to
reliove the crowded condition ol
the public school. Tho accomo

Tho Phess man asked quite a
number of leading, representa

is your opinion of incorporation
for school purposes?" and follow

A nrnminont nhvsician, who
has been here for years, said
"We are compelled to have more
school room. That is an absolute
necessity, and as to the best
means of getting it I believe that
incorporation for school purpos
es would perhaps be the fairest
wnv to all concerned." A lead.
ing lawyer, in high official posi
tion, said, "It is a fact that is
patent to all wo must have more
room. We must make better
arrangements for our school
children. Incorporation I o r
school purposes seems to me to
be about the most practicable
I solution of tho problem." Awell

Some Society Notes
Socially speaking San Angelo
has been far from dull during
tho past six months. There have
been numerous affairs of more
or loss prominence, but here, as
elsewhere, dancing and cards
are tho leading diversions of
San Angelo has quite a number
of nh do seiclo clubs that are
doing much for tho enjoyment of
her people socially. The San
Angelo Club porhaps heads the
list In point of members. It has
elegant club quarters, with nice
library facilities, and tho latest
magazines, periodicals and news
papers are always on its tables.
The membership embraces some
sixty odd names of men who are
among tho first in the various oc
cupations of the business world.

Lecture Thursday Niaht.
Tho lecturo delivered at tho
opera house last Thursday eve
ning, by Matilda Fletcher, was
onjoyed by quite a largo audience.
Tho lecturo was replete with wit,
humor and pathos, and also con
tained much scientific informa
tion. "The heart of a man" is a
very peculiar organ, viewed from
a sentimental stand point, and
the lecturer shed some light on
wiint is ni times, a rather dark

subject. Sho also claims to havo
diEcovered that man is an angel.
If all the women went, around
talking that way the male half
of mankind would soon be wear-
in" larcor sized hats, and grow
several inches in height.
Fact Is, tho average woman
imagines that one of her heaven
sent missions is to prevent the
abnormal development of man's
phrenological bump of conceit,
and sho goes about tho job in a
erim, businesslike way that is
eminently successful, and often
leaves tho victim of hor ministra
tion feeling like a nickel with a
hole in it. Wo aro cordially in
favor of Matilda Fletcher's idea,
moro praise, and less blame.
