There is a general feeling that '
more room should be provided, but
only a limited amount is available,
and at best it will be hard to provide
satisfactorily for the accommodation
of the pupils. Some have talked of
partitioning the old church; others
are opposed to this and would build
an addition to the present school
i building. Just what will be done is
a matter of conjecture, but we trust
;the board will be able to arrive at
some solution which will provide
ample room for the scholars as well
as accommodations for the teachers.

The Hotel Qarstion
The matter of securing a liotel for
Murdock is one that concerns every
person who has the interest of the
town at heart. With people visiting
our town every day who are not able
to secure either meals or lodging,
Murdock is getting an unenviable
reputation and being passed up by
many who would coiue here, could
they be assured of accommodations
along this line. With either a good
hotel or restaurant here the situation
would be much different. It looks
May 12, 1920, Mr. Storkjohn added:
"The cure I had from Doan's Kidney
Pills several years ago has become a
lasting one. It has been a couple of
years since I used or had need of a
kidney medicine and my kidneys are
now1 good and healthy. I still have
faith in Doan's and if ever I should
need a kidney remedy again, I should
certainly use them."

Has an Excellent Machine
We were much interested in a
demonstration a few days ago of the
Maytag self-contained multi-power
washing machine which Wm. Gherts
is offering to his trade just now. The
machine is so simple a child can suc
cessfully operate it and there is very
little chance of its ever getting out
of order, although if it ever should,
there is a free repair service that
goes with it, thus guaranteeing it
against any imperfections. When in
the store, ask for a demonstration of
this up-to-date washer.
The School Problem
The school situation is one
is commanding the attention and
best thought of the Board of Educa
tion and others interested in a solu
tion of the problem confronting the
consolidated district. Inadequate fa
cilities for the accommodation of
the pupils and inability of the teach
ers to secure suitable place of abode
are both matters of grave import
ance, and unless satisfactorily solved
will prove a grave menace to the
welfare of our educational institution.
