oue of the first questions that comes
to a man with a family is "What are
the school facilities" The prailent
man of the West is not only looking
for a place where he can have materia
prosperity but he is also looking for a
place where he can educate his child
ren. If there is anyone thing which
characterizes the enterprise of the
West It is the establishing of schools
and colleges for the children. The
litti. miitta anitnnl house on the hill
and in the valley has been almost the
first consideration of all western pio
neers. Moat of the early settlers were
better educated than were their friends
whom they left at the old home and
they clearly foresaw that they coald
not build up a new country with a
firai foundation If they neglected- the
eduoatlon of their children. .

At the present time our schools are
fully equipped from the kindergarten

fin narefullv trained until they reach
the high school. This department of
schoolllfe has undergone a radical
hanse from conditions a few years
ago. Manual training, domestic
science, shorthand and typewriting
-courses have been added to the regular
classical course. The result has been
most gratifying. The boys and girls
-who have no desire to study Latin
have now several elective courses offer
ed them and they consequently remain
a school. The attendance xf our high
school has increased three hundred
per cent since these the elective cour
ses have been installed, The boys
learn to use the hammer and saw, the
plane and chisel, the square and com
pass and they manufacture racks,
stools, tables, benches and the like
with a dexterity that would do credit
to an experienced carpenter. They en

Nothing else that comes within the range of gift-giving so
Nothing else is so generally given nothing else so com

greater taste in designing than others. Some are

find more of the real spirit of the season evidenced '
in OUR this year's display than you will find

Giving Jewelry doesn't mean that there's a lot of money

Monday evening. At ths close of.tbe
business meeting the doors of $he den
were thrown open and a Christmas
tree in all the aplendor ot Christmas
decorations and lighted candles' greet

hidden some where in the branoB.es of
the tree, the name being attached to a
string and after a long search gifts
were found in unexpected places which
proved to be some what of a joke upon
the recipient. Some of the jokes were
very olever and various articles, such
as diamonds, musical instruments,
house keeping utensils, farm imple
ments and even houses and automo
biles changed hands.
Refreshments were served at tables
