R Taylor Co, 43 CENTER STREET Should At Least Have An Average of Thirty-five Pupils. There -was no meeting of the board of education last evening owing to the absence of a quorum. But there was some discussion between the school committee from the Bunker Hill dis trict and the members of the board present, as to the &eaning of the vote passed some time ago by the board re garding the hiring of two teachers oil condition the committee would build a two-room school house and keep up the attendance. The committee did not exactly understand the meaning of keeping up the attendance was and Mr K!ent, vice chairman of the board said it meant that At least there sh6uld be about thirty-five pupils in. the building in order to warrant the en gagement of two teachers. . Clerk Fitzgerald read the vote and Mr Miller, representing the committee from Buck's Hill, said that the dis trict held a s meeting last . Monday evening and that - many expressed doubt as to the success of a two-room building anj the actual need of such a structure. They did not think the needs of the district warranted them going to such an expense. , Mr Miller favored the idea of a hew building and this was promised by the committee who last visited the board on this , matter. And he' also Said that the present , building is situated too near . the .roadway and that passing teamsters can touch the children with their whips and there is danger in this because some of the children may be run over some time." Another ' repre sentative who did not chime in . with Mr Miller's views, said that the build ing has been where It Is for two-hun dred years and that' no child has ever been run over yet. The discussion stopped at this point. It will be re sumed when ther0 is a full meeting of the board. ' HUGGED ON RECREATION PIER. Pretty Nellie arid Likely Jack Thought It 0.K., But They Were Arrested, . New York, July 16. There was a lit tle smile all around In Jefferson Market court yesterday morning, when Detec tive Kirke solemnly brought , before Magistrate Cornell a decidedly pretty girl, Nellie O'Grady of No 323 West Seventeenth street, and John McNa mara, a likely looking lad of No 140 West Tenth street. Nellie's ' cheeks flushed and fche shrank from the twink ling eyes of the magistrate until John placed his arm about her, then her black eyes blazed a little. - Kirke said he had done some court ing himself , but he never selected a stringpiece on a recreation pier when in the throes. He almost fell into the rjver at the hugging and kissing be tween Jack and Nellie. It made him wilt a collar a minute when Jack would kiss Nellie, then Nellie would kiss Jack, then both would kiss and hug each other something awful, while the stringpiece swayed and the pier crowd sat around in enert helplessness. v "Tell him, Jack," nudged Nellie, and, taking a firmer grip of her waist, he began a stout defense. Sure, hadn't he known Nellie on the ould sod, and wouldn't the two be one just as soon as the omadhaun In charge of St FranT els Xavler college kitchen raised his wageV? And wasn't it all honest, and sure they weren't hiding it at all, at all. " ' .' - V 4 - "Are you engaged to this man, Nel lie?" asked the magistrate. . "What business is it of yours?" 'she said archly. "Maybe ' I'll be telling you, after all, that I am."; "Discharged. Now, If you want to spoon hereafter stay on St Francis Xavier grounds.; Jack, I'll try to get your wages raised." , ; f f, POLICE FIRE ON STRIKERS. Battle With Clubs and Revolvers In , ' Labor Riot.

Nineteen men were arrested.

Several persons were in jured. ; ( ,- Strikers called on Chief of Police O'Neill and protested against the em ployment of special policemen to escort the wagons. The chief replied that the mob would not be allowed to Interfere and that the police would keep , the streets clear. . :-":-.V - The Kellogg company will continue to move freight, under protection, and it Is not Improbable that a more seri ous clash will result.

After com mending .the medical profession gener ally in the state for the promptness and accuracy with which vital statis tics are returned, the secretary of the board sends out this shot for some medical examiner Of the state: v ' But wh,en a public officer of the state holding . the Responsible office of a "medicai examiner," evades the .spirit and purpose of the law by giving vthe cause of death in his certificates in , terms of indefinite and vague meaning, and who y when respectfully asked by the state board of health if "a bullet in the chest," given in a certificate over his signature,' was accidental, homicidal or suicidal, makes no reply to this inquiry, or to otheij previous in quiries of similar kind, we do not think he has fully discharged his duty . either to the public or to the state board of health, which Is charged with the registration of vital statistics of1 Connecticut. j NUTMEG GRATINGS Benefit of Our Busy Readers.
