Merits of the Yarlous Plans.
The schoolhuuse question continues
to he the principal theme for local dis
cussion. Anil Unit is well, for at the

Issue hefoie the people of this oily and
listrict than this school problem. All's
well that ends well, and we hope and
trust that this may lie settled in ninitii
nor that will prove to be the best for
all time to come.
Our present facilities are inadequate
for our present demands, to say nothing'
of the loss of public .spirit and public
pride. Many plans are being urged in
solution of the problem. The board is
praised or condemned according to the
viewpoint of the interested party. Hut
let us examine carefully our present
In the first place, a petition was eir
diluted asking for S-VOOO bonds to be
otcd for the purpose of buying a site,
erecting a building in the south ward
and installing a heating plant in the
north ward. This proposition was sub
mitted to the voters and carried by
more than three to one.
Unquestionably, every voter under
stood that a 820,000 building was too
large merely for the use of the pupils
of the south ward, and it was equally
well undeistood at that time that the

vroetod, but two courses of action were
open either to make the new building
grade school or else to continue the
ward system, and use the upper lloor
for the high school. Wo have before
stated that we frvored the grade plan,
because it would give us greater teach
ing etllciency at a less cost and be bet
ter for the children. Kadi teacher
would have only one grade instead of
two, childrcd of the same age would be
associated togethe, backward scholars
could receive individual attention, the
teacher could be a specialist, etc.

the high school being placed in the colds, croup and whooping cough. It

Men Who Know!
Those who know, know that they have never had better Clothes
than they buy here.
Never had better fitting, more comfortable, stylish or more fairly
They know that, when they are ready for a Fall Suit, they will
come directly here for it.
These Men know where the best Clothes come from.
Men Who Dont Know!
To the other c.ass belong those busy mortals who haven't time to
investigate. So they go to the exclusive Tailor and pay dearly for their
lack of time, or content themselves with buying "Average Ready to
Wear Clothing," and so go poorly dressed half their days.
