Teachers, as well as pupils, will be glad to have the much needed rest. The vacation will be two weeks, school reopening Jan- uary 6th, 1908. Special exercises were held today in each room. The primary grades, for the past week, have been prepar- ing for the exercises by constructing wall pockets, calendars, etc., made from colored cardboard and orna- mented by their own art in water colors. The school has grown considerably during the past year, and the crowded conditions that existed in nearly every room are now eliminated by the neat- ly, well-planned new building. The enrollment is the largest in the history of the school; there are three hundred and forty enrolled in all. It is doubtful whether there is seating capacity for all another year, if the city continues to grow as it has in the past. The new addition to the corps cf teachers, Mr. Holton Hall of Everett, will be here to take charge of the seventh grade when school reopens January 6th..Mr. Hall is a man of considerable experience and comes well recommended. Both teachers and pupils will be glad to welcome Mr. Hall to our midst. Parliamentary*drill and literary ex- ercises have been installed in the high school It is likely that no branch that is taught in high school work is as important in practical life as a good knowledge of parliamentary rules The power of one's being able to stand be- fore an audience, to think clearly and speak forcibly, and knowing when and how to express his thoughts, is a great attainment The teachers will spend their holi- days in various places. Superinten- dent Findley will leave for Spokane. Miss Creuger, of the high school, con- templates a trip to eastern Washing- ton. Miss Ehey will spend the holi- days in Everett, Mrs. Demand in Port- land, Mrs. Bold in 8eattle, Mrs. Austin and Miss Hartzell in Monroe, and Miss Beach in Everett. Escape at Reformatory An escape was made at the new 3tate Reformatory this morning at tbout 5 o'clock by a man named Powell, or Powers, who was at firs*, reported to be James Powell Cram Monroe, but turns out to be a drummer sent up from Everett for forgery. He was Working as a helper in the kitchen, and asked leave to go to the closet, and ket going. A guard followed him out, but it was very dark, and nothing could be seen of him. Supt. Irwin immetiately notified the officers in twn and had men posted at the trategic points around, and it is thought sure that he will be taken.

Rev. J. McKean is prominently men- tioned as the coming appointee for chaplain of the Reformatory, and it is generally acknowledged that the posi- tion is due him if he will accept it. As it is, the town has no representa- tive in the Reformatory affairs, and this appointment would give general satisfaction. One of Buns Bird's lady friends. knowing him to be a ba:helor and un- able to handle a needle, considerately mailed him a pair of "bachelor but- tons." Realizing that his duties were at times strenuous, and thinking that I the ordinary shingle nail would prove inhdequate, she sent two thirteen inch steel wire spikes. A celebrated case was tried before Judge Farmer of Milton precinct yes- terday. James Frazier brought sui:: against R. L. Davis for what was lack- izg of a cord of wood which he had bought. Davis claimed that he sold the wood by the load and not by the cord. Attorney Bascom for the plaint- iff and Attorney Coleman of Everett for the defendant enlightened the judi- cial intellect on he facts and law in the case, and a judgment was given the plaintiff for $1.12, and costs against the defendant.

M. eb B4- Beware of Frequent Col:is A succession of colds or a protracted cold is almost certMn to end in chronic catarrh, from which few persons ever wholly recover. Give every cold the attention it deserves and you may avoid this disazreeable disease. How c,m you cure a cold? Why not try Chamber- lain's Cough Remedy? It is highly recommended. Mrs. M. Vhite of But- loP Tenn., says: "Several years ago I was bothered with my throat and lung-. Someone told me of Chamberlain's Couh Remedy. I began usin. it and it relieved me at once. Now my throat and lun's are sound and well." For sale by E. A. Roberts ann W. E. Mans- tield. H EADQUA00TE00,:.5. FOP, HOLIDAY PP, ESENTS ?
