Bertha Ton Saltner.
The Nobel iwace prize has a money
value of about $40,000. but its great
est value consists in the high distinc

efforts in behalf of international peace.
in connection w.ith the treaty of Ports

which met iu Boston last year. By
the will of the celebrated Swedish sci

Third avenue between Seventeenth and

The machinery Is that which was bid

school was never in as crowded condi

well as the pupils are greatly inconve

room is occupied and nearly 100 of the
pupils use recitation rooms for study
rooms when they are not occupied by
classes. There seems to be no way
out of the difficulty and the board of
education is facing a serious problem
in making arrangements for the future.
