The school begins to-day at
this place with Wirt Mann,
principal; Miss McDade; assis-
tant. Our trustees have shown
themselves to be cormorants,
inasmuch as they enrolled
about eighty-five pupils, about
twenty of whom were children
of renters who are not going to
remain iu the district. The
parents of some of these chil-
dren asked for transfer for
their children's part of the
school fund. They were met
with a refusal point blank, and
a statement volunteered that
they wauled a certain number
of months school iu this dis-

were moving out, including the
children of the pastor ill

would not have funds to run
