New Year Greetings
It is with pleasure that we annouce that this year's
holiday .trade exceeded our expectations, in fact dur
tlie entire year of nineteen eighteen the patronage we
enjoyed has surpassed that of the' previous years.
We attribute this to lite ever-growing confidence of the
public in our business methods and the high quality of the lines
merchandise we sell, as without your confidence and co-operation
this high Standard could not have been attained.
We wish to thank you for your 1'beral patronage in the past and to re
quest a continuance of the same during the coming year, and wish you a
HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

ricts, not for each old school district.
The one I sent you wns made for
thnt purpose hut not according to the
law, he says.
You will have to ask for these lat
ter, for as I have said, there is not
enough for each' old school district.
Anyone wishing-'to protest agdinst
the' prcsQ.ntyine drawn should be s'tart
i!g to get IhcJr 25 per cent of the en
tiro proposed school district.
The time for protests is from Jan
uary 13 to Fcbarury 24 if the lines
do not please you. Three lines have
been changed in the map. District I
was extended one mile further cast.
D'strict J one mile further south. The
reparating line between District L
and District M was made :o go on the
half section line all the way down in
stead of half of the way. This gives
District M.2l4 square miles of what
was in District L as the maps first
came out. There is still a little qucs-l
tion about the lines on tho Xickolls
and Franklin sides.
After tho 2Uh of February, if you'
don't want consolidation just do noth-j
ing. Things don't change until you
petition for an election. Every e.'ec-1
tion will cost the county over five
dollars so "f you intend to vote it
down, why cte. If the matter is In
que?' ion nrd you don't know Just
how you stand, the only thing to do
to settle it ir. to call a vote.
If theic are any questions you wish
to ask and will send them in I will
have them answered in tho papers so
that all can get the information I ask
of the State Superintendent. I sent
him u letter asking some questions I
had been akcd but so far I have not
had what I felt was a satisfactory
answer fo; you. He just "referred mo
to the law and I am not sure I can
tell just what that means. I am afraid
I will put- a construction on it that
the state will not back up and then
you will bo ii.convenienccd.
The County Superintendent will
send frartked postals to the doctors of
tho county that they will send in the
number they will need to report con
tagious diseases to her on. The new
law makes it necessary to send in
tltcso reports when on imnd every
Saturday. All contagious diseases of
.own or country should lie, reported
to the County Superintendent as soon
a known about so that she can send
in her report every Saturday.
