Lnko school, nt the corner of Nineteenth nnd Lako streets, was so crowded last year that it was necessary to rent un adjoin ing storeroom for tho accommodation of ono of tho grades. Thero are sixteen rooms in the building, but it has again been found too small and enough pupils for seventeen rooms urn crowded into the building pending soma action of Iho Hoard of Education to rcllovo tho situation. "Thero Is no reason to bollevo that the school will ever bo nny smaller than it Is nt present, nnd I nm confident that it will show a decided gain In attendance each year," Superintendent Pearso said In dis cussing tho building. "It Is expenslvo nnd unsatisfactory to hnvo pupils scattered about in ndjolnlng buildings and I hope tho board will see fit in build nn addition to tho school. Thcro Is spaca enough on tho north end of tho lot for a four-rom ad dition, which would nccommodato tho at tendance for years to como. "Such nr. addition would, In my opinion, bo butter than n separate building in that part of tho city and could bo mulntulned with lets oxpunso. Tho school Is so near tho center of tho city th.it It will a 1 way a have a largo attendance. A frame addi tion would bo prefernblo to brick, in that it would bo less expciislvo und could bo moved to another alto in caso tho sUo of tho Lnko school is reducrd by the erec tlon of other bulldlUKS in that dlstrlut." & CO. STREETS. HOLD DIFFERING OPINIONS Otlletnln of the Internal ItciTC-nur Dr Iinrtinent .Seem to He at Vnrlnnoe l.ith One Another. An order Involving tho liability of tho manufacturers of certain flour products to tho puyment of interval revenue has been rrcelved by tho collector of Internal rev enue. The question came up on tho in quiry of an Omaha houso as to Us liability. This house manufactures n flour known as "self-raising." Its formula shows that It contains wheat flour, cornmenl, salt and leavening. The commissioner decides that In ordor to come under tho provisions of tho war rcvenuo net tho basin of "mixed flour" must bo wheat flour audMiot corn menl, an in this enso. In this connection there is a dlfforenco of opinion in departmental circles at Wash ington, of which nono of tho ofilolals in Omaha will spenk. Some time ago n No braskn houso paid Internal rovonuo tax upon mixed Hour us a product somowhat similar to tfio ono in question, with tho exception that tho base of their compound was wheat flour. In the course of tlmo an opinion of the commissioner was received to tho offect that this flour did not come within tho terms of tho act, and the com pany not only ceused to pay the tax, but sent to the department a claim for a re fund of tho money previously paid. The commissioner nllowed tho claim nnd tho government nppcaled to tho comptroller, who reversed the decision of the commissioner and refused to refund tho money. With this condition of affairs tho Nebraska product goes on the mnrket without tho stamp, but tho money paid cannot be re covered. Iletinlreil Am- of Nnvnl ItreriiKa. CHICAGO.
