number o( extra sitting) had been put in.
In all 1:10 student had applied for admis
sion and as a number of these are to
come In yet, larger accommodations will
have to be provided. The number of
young rueti and boys taking the high
school course Is the largest In the history
.of the Institution. The work of organi
zation and classification has been com
pleted more quickly, this year, than ever
before, owing to the fact that there were
no change of the regular teacher, and
there la a sulilclent number of teachers to
do HI le lent work, even with an Increased
attendance.

scene of a lively content and (ieorge VVin
ton beat Mr l'yan by one vote and was
elected committeeman for this Vr. At
that meeting Mr I! van told the district
that he had hired the former teacher,
who ii hi ; daughter, for Knottier year.
Mr Winton evidently think that he was
the one to hire the teacher in-teau of Mr
Kyan, and refuses to ! t Mix Uyun into
the nchoolhou'e to open (lie echool,
though lie goes refill:! rly to .the school
building every morning and tries the

begin. In the meantime Mr Winton is
looking for another teacher. The school
board has been up en led to, but they
thought It wm a imitter the district
should decide and therefore refused to
act. Miss Kyan holds a certificate from
the board to teach, and the question now
teems to be whether die will get a chance
to tine It. The eourts will probably be
called on to lend a hand in the matter.
