The efforts being made to pass these two school bills, without consulting the people and without giving the bills the publicity their importance demands, furnish an example of how^the rights of the people can be played with and trampled on in the legislature.

The Legislature and Our High Schools. A matter which the people of this community should know and radical seriously consider is a change, proposed by the legisla ture, in our present educational system. The bills that purpose to create this change are House Bill No. 87 and Senate Bill No. 94 * Both of these bills would eliminate the present High School districts, creating only one high school dis trict within each county to be con trolled by one board of trustees. In the House Bill exception is made of Class A districts which employ more than 20 teachers. The Sen ate Bill would abolish all high schools in the county that have an enrollment of less than 75 pupils, "transferring their liabilities, resources, rights, powers and functions to the high school dis trict." at is It is significant that, in Kootenai county, if the senate bill becomes effective, we would have but one high school,—and that one Coeur d'Alene, under six trustees, the majority of whom would no doubt be citizens of the county seat. in What would this mean to Rath drum? It would mean, in the first place, that this community would surrender a direct voice in deter mining what educational advantage the young people of this neighbor- R i hood should have. We pay more , for education than for any other , . , ... I one thing. Why, then, should we | not cherish the right to say, thru local representatives, just how that money should be expended? If the county be made «the unit of control, that fundamental, demo cratic right would practically be lost, because in a board of 5 or 6 members bach locality cannot be represented. It might mean, further, that, if you would have your young folks get a high school education, you must send them away for four years. If you do not wish to do this, or if the expense of so doing would be prohibitive,—then this important advantage must be lost. At the present time half the cost of the education of this district is borne by the state. Much of this apportionment would be transferred to one county high school, which without a shadow of doubt would be established at Coeur d'Alene. There has been no time in his 11 state at tory when educational advantages should be made more accessible than today. All thinking know the menace that ignorance is proving to be not only to our free institutions but to society itself. Instead of abridging the chances the youth have of Continuing in school, the tendency should be to make it more and men more possible for them to enlarge their vision, to learn to think by themselves, and to learn to rightly value and defend the democracy that triumphed. has just When laws have been enacted it avails little to protest. object to these bills ! • , . ■ I now I ^ ? f have our high' Kh'o o rcio.'e "htt doors, or to give over her control to outsiders. It certainly would mean much to the youth of this* Vicinity if they be robbed of the ! oppor.u„"y,° get that training K If we do passing, ' S ^ l ' me to * et tbe men who represent us "hear from home." It would mean much to Rathdrum to opportunity to that is their due. L. O. SWENSON i Read - Read - Read Do not read this unless you are looking for the best place to buy goods cheap.

I tried a number of cough medicines hut nothing did him any good until I gave him Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It relieved his cough right away and before he had finished taking one bottle he was cured. I think it is just Hue for children."
