X\ ill Build The Finest Silioul
I -louse On 1". iX
At the school bo nil election
held in the new Kire Hall at this
place last Saturday, the project
of bonding the district lor S10,-.
000 for the purpose of putting up
a new school building, carried
almost unanimously, there being
thirt.v-Lh ree for and one vote
against issuing the bonds.
While the vote cast was light,
the lact that all but one were in
favor of it, no doubt expresses
the sentiment ot the district, in
this laudable enterprise ol build
ing a new house ol learning.
The building ol the new school
house is not only the duty of
the commumtv in seeing that
the children have proper educa
tional facilities, but looking at it
from a business standpoint, it
is also a wise move, as there is
nothing like a good school to at
tract desirable citizens to a town
and there are several lie re
who have no children to send
who look at it in this light.
The plan which is not definite
ly settled upr.n in every detail,
will be to erect a modern struc
ture, .)2x7(i, two stories with lull
basement, and containing four
class rooms, lour cloak rooms,
supt, room, manual training
room, gymnasium, modern sys
tem ol ventilation, steam heating
plant, toilets, modern in finish
and style of artitecture. The
basement will have a iL' foot ceil
ing in which the gvm and manu
al training room will be located.
The school will provide fur
1- grades, with a sufficient corps
of teachers to handle the pupils
in first class shape. Bids will
be advertised for at once and
work will begin as soon as pos
sible after the contract is let.
The people of the district are
to be complimented on their
success, and also the school
board in their untiring efforts to
up build the community.—Ros

Trying to Keep up Appearances.
I have heard of ambitious wives
of poor poets and preachers pound
int a rag to make the neighbors
think thev had beef steak for
breakfast, but that tale is tame
compared to this. Ont on the
Colfax line a young couple keep
house in a ipuet way having ne
servant. The oilier day the hus
band went home in the evening,
taking a friend to dinner. That
ought to entitle him 'to ten days,
for the happy and unsuspecting
wife had a dainty dinner for two on
the table. "My dear" said the
head of the fifmily. when his friend
had said goodnight and the door
had been closed, "how was it that
you had four big potatoes baked
tonight? We never had more than
two and you could not have known
that I had company."
"1 didn't."
"Yes. but you did, my dear.
My friend ate one, von ate a half
one and I ate the other half and
there are two left ill the bowl."
"Very 1 rue, mv innocent,'' said
the laughing wife, "but those that
were left were as cold and raw as
March morning in New England.
Thev were put there for appear
ance—to hl 1 up: and when you
bring company home without tell
ing me again, I'll make you eat
them that way."
And then they sav women don't
know enough to vote! The aver
