SCHOOL ELECTION The annual school election to be held in the various districts throughout the state on the third Saturday in May, should appeal to every citizen; for. at this elec tion new directors are to be elect ed, a tax for the maintenance of the school for the next twelve months is to be voted and. finally, the proposition of county uni formity of text books is to he settled. There are all live wires, but, perhaps, none of the trio is of greater importance than that of the director. He is an impor W*-were a littie uneasy when w<- landed in Prescott and opened the Store of (Quality lest we would be unable to ob tain goods and fin 1 customer- for same. But we readily found plenty of customers and our doubt in regard to obtain ing goods was dispelled when our brother up in New York who visits all the up-to-date clothing and gents furnishing stores wrote us: ‘I can steal and ship you faster than you can make sales, and all you will be out is tranportation Get the place read , to put the goods." Only charging a very small margin above transportation we have hired another man to help brother send the goods, but if they are not caught by September the 1st. we will have to enlaage our building to hold the goods. So if you need a good suit of clothes, best mateiial, best tayloring, latest styles at the lowest prices, comejto the Store of Quality. D .

The duties of a director are so numerous, so complex and far reaching in their effects, that the greatest possible care should be exercised in his selection. Some of the acquirements of a school director are: He should be thoroughly interested in the educational ad vancement of his district; he should be a man of intelligence and familiar with the education al needs of his district; he should be a broad, liberal minded man who. in the employment of teach ers, will look to the best interests of his district and will not in this connection undertake to ac commodate a friend or relative or turn a trick to his own advan tage at the expence of the pub lic interests. On the other hand, in those instances where the di rectors are working solely for the interests of ti^e district, it must be remembered that the position is one of selfsacrifice and. to the end that the mission of the di rector may meet with complete success, he must have the hearty cooperation of the patrons; other wise, the school will be at least to some extent a failure. The patrons of the school should at tend the elections, vote and elect such directors as they desire and then give them their loyal sup port and not whine around about this and that tt ing in other words, the ballot box is the place to settle all differences of opinion, and when settled there, they ought to remain settled until the next election.
