School House Bonds Lose.
The interesting contest as to
whether at this time the district
number C-7 should erect a new
building for school purposes was had
I iasi wetinesnay anu wim noiu me
! adherents for the proposition, and
those who thought best that it oe
deferred until a later date, both
working, the end of the contest
showed the question defeated, with
the vote for the construction of-thc
buildirg at this time, 79, and those
who preferred to wait until a later
date, 113. the postponement of the
proposition having a good working
majority. While the feeling was
rather intense during the campaign
just before and at the time of the
election, all are gracefully accepting
the verdict of the ballets.
Besides the excellent production,
they are rejoicing in the realization
of $69 for the purchase of things
needed in the school reuni. Same
one remarked that they expected
to build the new school house with
the proceeds, but that was a joke.
It will go for pmyground improvements.
