COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL REPORT Officials of the Montpelier Inde pendent school district this week is sues its annual financial statement of the conditions of the schools of the city and expenditures for the 1920 21 school period. The report shows a deficiency of but $10,638.09 for the year, which is very good compar ed to experiences of many other school districts in the state of Ida ho for the same period. In Borne instances schoolB .of other counties have been dismissed mush earlier than the ordinary school year, due to shortage of funds, and this not until after a large deficiency had ac cumulated against the districts. To offstand the shortage noted above the board still has $10,746.67 due It from 1920 taxes, yet unpaid. When this amount is turned over to the school district, the balance sheet at the time of compiling the re port will show $106.48 to the credit of the district. In Montpelier tho deficiency noted in the report could doubtless have been eliminated at the sacrifice of several weeks of training of the children, bit the board of education was too far sighted to resort to this method, and therefore completed full school year to the benefit of ery child attending. The deficiency in the case of Mont pelier is more than accounted for in an increase in salaries of teachero at the beginning of the school year which was not taken into considera tion when levies were made and the - increase was made upon the recom mendation, of the state board of ed a ev Suggestions, Ideas, Materials For Any Type Building This company with its new, econo mical and distinctive building is prepared to give every indi vidual the privilege of sele cting a home that will accommodate his ■ s ser vice : ■ C ' every need and at a cost surprising ly low. 9 _ Montpelier Coal &: J Lumber Co.

It is surprising the number of cat tle and horses that are permitted to roam the highways of Bear Lake county day and night. This is par ticularly true in the western part of the county along the state highway. It is improper that horses and cattle should be permitted to run at largo In this manner and thereby adding to the danger of night travel both In ve hicles and automobiles. The nuisance Is exceptionally .dan gerous to motorists, and many seri ous accidents are narrowly averted night after night when horses the highway in front of passing In many instances horses grazing by the side of the roads become confused when the car lights flash into their eyes and without the slightest warn ing to the drivers the animals are di rectly In head of them, and If the car brakes are a trifle loose a colli sion usually occurs.

ENLARGING RAILROAD UNITS As tho industrial unit is enlarged cost of service is reduced, (except In government where It is increased.) .Congress Ib about to propose a con solidation of all railroad - systems In There is an Electric Range For Every Kitchen Every Purse Ranges are built in several sizes and styles— A cabinet range is ideal for the kit chen that is not crowded for space. It has surface burners with open coils so that you can SEE the heat and thus be sure when it is turned on. It has a speedy oven, equipped with thermometer and insulated with as bestos so that the heat is all USED up and none escapes into the room. A compact range for the small kit chen has all the advantages of the cab inet type but takes only a small space. The kitchenette range which is small er still for the small family and for the kitchen that has very little space to use. The HUGHES Electric Ranges Original Electric Range wero the pioneer electric ranges—and they have gone fight on improving so that they are also tho BEST ranges on the market. Each surfaco and oven heating unit is control led by a switch which gives three degrees of heat—Full, Medium and Low. Medium heat is just one half ar, hot as Full heat. And low heat in just one-quarter as hot as Full heat. These degrees of heat never change—so that you can bo surn you will get the same results each time.—There is no guess about electric cooking. The electric oven Is designed with a thick insulation which retains the heat long after the current has been switched off. There fore the cooking is done largely on retained heat.

EFFICIENT PUBLIC SERVICE i i 9 9 order that the huge overhead expense of operating each and every railroad as an Independent business unit may be reduced, and the transportation systems of the country may thus be placed upon a more secure business foundation. It is a well known fact that since the railroads were turned back to private ownership with the greatly increased labor epense that was cre ated during the period of government control ad made more or less perma nent, railorads have been having a desperate struggle for eistence. Freight and passenger transportation rates have been advanced but the railroad balance sheets are still "in the red." As a remedy for this de plorable condition, we now witness the federal government proposing several combinations of railroads un der one general management in order to reduce expenses and thus forestall an utter breakdown and ruin of the transportation system of the country which Is vital to all business interests The very thing that many political leaders have been fighting for so many years on the ground that it was an unmitigated evil is now re commended as a salvation of the busi ness interests of the country!

CHOP THE WEEDS. ^■"''fhe streets of Montpelier are lined With big, noxious weeds which are thriving unmolested by the grubbing hoes of the street department.
