ij traced to indifferent parents. The state

J jto attend some sort of a schorl at leas!

tney are made to keep the children in
regilar attendance. Usualh, hoKrcr,
ai warning will suffice.
Most of the caes of truancy are bovs
."sbetween, the age of II and 13. With a
Crowing feeling of daring they put tlieir
superior intelligence to work to outwit
the, officer., ,
If a student is absent from school
three days, a notice is sent to the city
superintendent of schools and from there
'fVth'e truant officer. The exchange c,f

Investigation of the case is conducted
immediate!, according to Mr. ltoue. In
nc case sickness causes the alienee,
and the child is bilk in scloul before
the officer gels jbe notice.
