By a unanimous vote tho Board of
Education at a speciRl meeting held
last evening decided to submit a
proposition to vote sixty thousand dol
lars for a Junior high school building
This election will be held on December
While rfinlte phvn cf the building

plan la to erect a building on the north
line of the present high school
grounds that will be 05x190 foot threo
stories high. Tho basement, the floor
of which will be practically level with
tho ground, will contain rooms for
manual training, domestic science and
lucludo six shower baths for thoio

work. On the first floor there will bi
twelve school rooms, and ou the sec

school rooms nnd an auditorium

havo a seating capacity of about 1,000.
This auditorium will also ho used as a
The rooms will be used to accommo
date the pupils of the seventh and
eighth grades In the ward schools thus
relieving the congested conditions
there that now exists, and to relievo
the crowded condition of the present
high school building the ninth grado
will be transferred to tho new binding.
While the proposed now building
may be somewhat larger than at pres
ent needed, tho board believes that tho
mistakes of the past should not bo re
peated, namely, that each school build
ing erected has been too small they
wore erected for present needs and
not for tho future.
Had we erected a SGO.OOO high school
building instead of one costing $30,
000, and erected ward buildings cost
ing $40,000 each Instead of $20,000
each, we would have shown better
Judgment than we then exercised.
However, to remedy our past lack of
Judgment the proposed buidlng must
bo erected. We are face to face with
a necessity a prooiem or greater
school accommodations, and we must
solve the problem like men without

Now Ready for Your
The Leader takes pleasure in announc
ing that its splendid stock of Ladies'
Ready-to-wear Garments, including
Dresses, Suits, Coats and Skirts is now on
exhibition in its entirety, and a cordial
invitation is extended the ladies of North
Platte and surrounding section to call,
examine the garments and learn prices.
The Leader is confident that no store
in western Nebraska can make the show
ing in Ladies' Garments that it is making
this fall. Not only is the stock exception
ally large, but the models are of the latest
designs, the fabrics the best and the
prices are wondrously low.
For years The Leader has been furnish
ing the ladies of this section of the state
with garments; the customers of twenty
years ago are still patronizing the store,
and this is accepted as evidence that our
style and prices are always right.
It will bo a pleasure for The Leaders1
clerks to show you through the Ready-to
-wear Department, feeling assured that
they can satisfy your every want.

In which thoro aro Swedes. Wo do
not Intend to build up a church by
robbing our brethern of other church
es, but it Is nn established fact that
the Swedes, like othor people, possess
tho free will of deciding in which
language they deslro to hear and
practice their roliglon, and tho English
speaking element ought to 'respect it.
