Entire enrollment 453 Monthly enrollment 39J3 Daily attendance S31 Cases tardiness 140 The month of December, including one week of January, shows tho onroll ientofl7 moio now pubilc. The at tendance is 331 to 330 for Inst month. The tardiness stands 140 lo!37, a slight ' increase. It is to bo hoped that this troublesome and vicious habit can bo improved. The teachera aro giving it their careful attention ; if parents will help, god refultscan be obtained. The school truttoca have purcuased -the lot east of Daniel llankins, on which in time, will be erected an additional school building. By lilting tho ravine between the present school lot and tho new one, ample room can be secured on which to erect a four room brick bmld ing;and a building of four rooms will be neoded noxt year, if even the same flchooPfacilitifSa provided in (Biabee aa are supplied in tho other towns of the territory. We should try to do more . than to merely got in sight of the school procession. The trustees aro anxious to provide another teacher-to uilievo the great crowding in grades 3, 4 and 5, in the rooms of Miss Ilowo and Miss Hill. They wished to add this teacher on Feb ruary G, at the beginning ot the second term. The increased attendance over last year for the four months is 8G. This attendance can be kept up for tho Ave months, nnd will likely give the district an additional rovenus of $300 or $400. But now comes the word that this dis trict for tho half year, from Juno 30, 1898, is short moro than $1100 over tho Bamo period for last year. Thia is occ.i Bioed by tho cut in school taxcs.mado by the board of supervisors last August, from 52c. to 40c. As long as Bisbco had rep resentatives on the board of supervisors the achool tax was kept at a figuro that provided eufficiont revenue for our schools. Tho funds weiu administejed economically, and Bisbee district stint ed in.thinRchool year, July 1, 1898, with ' a aurpln8 of about $3,000. But for this fact there would not bo sufficient funds to run mora than soven or eight mouths this year. By cateful management it is probable that the usual torm of ten - months can be had. But it is not likely any additional teacher can bo added, much as they aro needed. In ten years xperieijco ns n principal, I have never found schools so much crowded as ours nor so 'mudu in need of additional teachers. It is already plain that the school tax of Cochise countr will have to bo raisod to probably GOo. next year if iwo more teacheis are added to our school, and it ii carried on tho usual ton montks. If tho school tax is loft at 40c. no more teachers eau be added, and the school will not i un ovo 8)J mouths. There will bo no surplus at tho end of tho year as thoio was this year. Tho deliciency of school revenue had better bo faced now, and stops bq taken to meet it. There was no renson to cut tho school tax last August, except tho Bcaro tho supervisor had when they learned this district had u surplxtt of $3,000. If the tax had been retained at C2c, as it ought to hnvo been, this dis trict could havo employed two moro tcnchoie, nnd bought 1C0 more Feats this year, nml-propoi school facilities might havo been provided for tho 400 fcdiool childro'n enrolled each month in our schools, A rapidly growing school, like that ot BfcbfOf Heeds n larger, nnd not a mailer, revonue each year. With two Bupervisora from BiBbee, it ought to he easy for tlio peoploof tho town to fcuiu needs. But progressive citizens must taico the matter in hand if anything is done. It takes inon oy to niako good schools, and tho town is amply able to ptovido it. Tho elocutionary entotammont by Frank Foucho netted $23.75. It should have been hotter patronized. Thia amount will be spent for hooka for tho school library which has had no addition"! since it waa fouuded by Principal Yarnum several yosis ago. The session of thelustituteat tho pub lic school building Dec. 21 and 22 was discovered by but a few of our people. If hold in a California or Colorado town the day sessions would have been well attended ; and a crowded llquso would havo gieeted tho evening lectures. Tho school is tho heart of of tho community, and its pulse boats And prove our achoola Bhculd bo vcoidially welcomed and assisted in overy way. I tnko great ploaauro in acknowledg ing the gift of 50 eopie3 of "Stones of Stir Land" by Mary Proctor, pieoent ed to tho school byProf.James Douglass. Thoy aro a welcome addition to our limited stouk of leading matter for grades 5, G, andT; and Prof. Douglass has the hearty thanks of pupils and teachors for hi8 generosity. I again urge on parents tho import ance of visiting our ecIiooIb. It will help the schools and ought to be a pleasuro to you. Respectfully, S. P. McOjika, Frin. Pnb-Schools. A Commits Suicide. STARTED UP. The Copper Queen Smelters Again . Running Full Blast. After over two weeks of idloness tho furnaces at tho Copper Queen smelters weio Jlred Monday, and yesterday tho first copper mat of tho output for the year 1809 waa turned out. During the past two wceka many im portant changes luve'been made around the works, Eonio of which will be the means of considerable savins to the company. By tho introduction of tho electric slag cars, tho labor ol about forty Moxicann has been done away with; the cars aro run up to the welj paying $1.50 per month and married men $2.00. This includes the furnish ini: of all medicines, drugs, etc, and in case of an accident tho employee is taken to tho hospital and kept until fully recovered without any additional expense to lrini.

A Rich Strike. An Oim ropoitcr was this afternoon presented with a piece of ore taken from tho Cochise Copper comp any'a claims in Dubacher oanyon. The ore wai taken from the main abaft at a depth of 85 feet. . Tho ore I103 in a small led,?d or stitngor, which inns across tho abaft, in tome places being wider than others, and is what is known as peacock copper while thoro is moro or less pyrites scat tered thiough tho rock iu which the copper is found. The oro has not bean assayed as yel, but when the results ato obtained the figuies will be given to the Onn readers. Thia ptoporty is one in winch Bisbee people have the utmost confidence. The company is wholly made up of business men of our city, and the citizina as a whole wish to sob them succeed.

The laige fuinacos aio capa ble of smelting about 250 tons but aa tho thico convertem now in use are not able to handle this amount they are not mn to their full capacity. It may not bo generally known, yet it is a fact that the Copper Queen com -pany produces pig copper 99.2 per cent, fino at a loss cost put cent, per pound ban any company in the territory, y et tho wages paid by the company are the best paid by any company. At joromo, wiioro tney navo sixi stands of converters aa well as a num ber of roasters, the animal output of the Veido only exceeds that of tho Queen by a little moio than one-third and the cost of production por pound is said to bo considerably gtcatos.
