The speaker .also said -the only desire\ back of. the bill was to get the best means of straigh­ tening ou t th e present ta x muddle in this \county. He denied that it legislated the assessors ou t of of­ fice. • * * • County Clerk Daniel J .

B0AR1T ORGANIZED WILLIAM J. DOYLE, JR., < HAS BIRTHDAY PARTY. ' At a special, meeting of th e Board of Education held last -Friday night, the advisability of continuing the Kindergarten for another year was ulucussud: ' — ' This question arose not because the Board believes th e work of the Kindergarten has been unsuccessful, nor because it is not in' sympathy with work of this nature, but be­ cause It ha s been thought that pos­ sibly the -space and expense requir­ ed to operate a Kindergarten in K a tonah might possibly be used for some purpose which would be of greater value to tiie children of K a tonah Some^of the high\ school classes have'become so large that hereafter -theymuBt b e run in tw o sections, and other subjects in which classes have been instructed only every oth­ er year must hereafter have classes every year. To care for this sltua tion the Board 'of Education ha s about deoided to engage a teacher who is capable of_ Instructing two or three classes m* \the high School and wh o i s alsof\icapable of teaching sewing, and uoniestlc ^science. ThiB .plan would no t make the budget for teachers' wages larger than at'fr ent If both such teacher and kin dergarten teacher were employed, it- would increase the expense for teach ers' wages, aoove th e present ex­ pense, a6ou« ?GE0.0O.
