and To Ke Investigated.
A special meeting of Hie board of
euuc;itio" wa- held FrMny evening to
ditcU'3 tlie be.-t mean of ove coming
the crowded condition of the high
t-chool num. The high echool en
rolls at present 162 pupiN, abou'.

that he had remiju-tcd Hie grades in
thec-niral uil i intr and thereby va
c 't-d one of thi ro"nH udoii the third
floor, which was now being used for
nigh school recititiona. This ar
rangement renderid it possible to bear
all the cliissea for the time being, un
til the board could provide some re
lief. It did not relieve the over
tr -wiled condition of the high school
r imii proper, however, but enabed
li.e clus. work M p c-ed . Ho staled
ih. ih-pu,-i-u we compelled to go
up and down i he -t irs to ine third
floor for ubiut one-half of thei
cladaes. He also stated that he was
very much opposed to having the high
school upon the top floor and had
been ever since it was moved up there,
believing I hit it was very injurious to
the health of the girl, and now mat
they were compelled to go up and
down stairs between classes, he wa
more than ever desirous that the high
nchool be provided for on the ground
floor. lie called the attention of the
board to the fact that there were two
methods of relief which mieht be
considered one, to build a grade
building, giving up the upper two
floor of tho central building to the
high school, thereby locating the high
school p rraanently upon the top floor
and 111 k ng the pupils go down stairs
to the tiiir.i floor for every class; sec
ond, to build a small high school
tui'ding upon the southwest corner of
the central building, which could
probably be heated Tom the heating
piant at he central building, and
which would provide for the tiigh
school permanently upon the ground
The bo ird, after discussing tho mat
ter, seemed to be of th opinion that
it was unquest onably injurious to re
quire the high school girls to climb to
the t p floor of the central building
and ibn to no up and down stairs be
tween every class. It was decided to
investigate the matter more fully,
both as to the expense and as to the
wishes of the patrons, immediately.
The board desires to secure some
one to swei p and cleri the central
building during the seven months
when steam is on, and considered
some application-, but decided to wait
for further applications.

Th first practical application of the
principle of the wireless telephone is
said to have taken place with excellent
results at Brussels. A short time ago
a violent storm broke the wires con
necting the telephone subscribers
at Ixelies with the central telephone
offices in Brussels, and it was declared
that it would take about three weeks
to re-establish communication. Some
body connected with the telephone
service then suggested a trial of tele
phoning without wires until the dam
age could be repaired. The suggestion
was taken up. and some experiments
were made which proved so successful
that the inhabitants of Ixelles have
since been telephoning to Brussels
with as much facility as when the
wires were intact.
