largest aoun in the oity on a sim
ilar occasion. In thy order of thv

nie Roborlaon and Mrs. C. U. Rich

be retained. Those agreed upon
are Prof. Adamsou , Misses Abbolt ,
Bealo , Alexander and Downoy.
They are o'ich able and etlioient
teachers , and are popular with both
patrons and pupils , and the good
judgment of the board in retaining
