■SCHOOL MADE IN
County Superintendent ("lark Has
Everything Arranged for the
Vote on the Proposition
Early in January.
County Superintendent Clark
.Ins made all arrangements to
hold an election early in January
to submit the question of a con-
solidated hig-h and prade school
for five di tricts south and east of
Noble. The matter has been
thoroughly discussed by the pat-
rons of the districts and there
seems to be an almost unanimous
desire that such n school be es-
?d. The petitions calling
ction have been signed in
some of the districts by 100 per
cent of the patrons, and in none
of them by l"ss than fifty per
cent. The districts involved are:
No. 50—Lone Star.
No. 51—Willow View.
The questions to be submitted
are whether the school shall be es-
tablished, how much shall be in-
vested in buildings and equipment,
and the location of the school
house. The idea is to erect a
model high and grade school
building, with at least twelve
and twelve teachers, at a
[* entral for the five dia-
1 ^ and take children to and
from school in trucks and automo-
biles—gathering them up in the
mornings and returning to their
homes after school. The school
building will be located on a
campus of at least twenty acres,
and cost from $25,000 to $50,000
with equipment The school is
to be established under the Smith-
Hughes act,, which provides for
®n A, & M. fan; demonstrator and
a Domestic Science teacher, both
of which branches will be taught.
Half of the salaries of these two
teachers are paid by the national
This is certainly a move in the
right direction and if worked out
to a successful conclusion cannot
but be of great benefit to all the
districts interested, and if suc-
cessful there, other districts will
take pattern from them.

The very first organiation in
America to grapple with the subject
of a system of perfect highways
throughout the country, wws the

bicycle riders. A court decision
wh? necessary to l ive a bicycle a
right on the public highways. The
court held that bicycle was a ve-
hicle and therefore entitled to the
use of public highways. It was a
thinking animal using its leg pow-
er, that rode the bicycle— not o'd
Dobbin, hence the necessity for
good surfaced roads impressed it-
self as never before, and a cam-
paign for Good Roads was inaug-
urated at once. Later the coming
of the motorcycle and automobile
assured a wider and deeper inter-
est in public highway improvement.
Great improvement of the public
highways in many states has been
made within the past 25 years, and
the experimental stage has passed
uccessfully and the question now is
"How to secure as quickly as pos
sible more mileage of improved
public highways," the same beiiv

Road improvement means added
civilization to our state and country
as well as wealth.
It means the cheapening of trans-
portation and the reduction of cost
to consumers of the products of
farm and factory.

severe Christmas storm. It has to
be postponed until some more aus-
picious occasion, full particulars of
which will be given of the time a"

the entertainment was to be a most
elaborate and interesting one, and
we certainly have all missed some-
thing worth while.
Have you seen the "Star of
Bethlehem" he has erected on the
west wall of the Odd Fellows'
building? It is certainly a beauti-
ful conception, and as it flashe
upon the night brings to us all the
thought of the Christ child and o
the joyful Christmas time.
Mr Edwards is certainly a grea
asset to a town, always earnest
and active in his endeavors to brin<*
joy and gladdness to the young and
old and ever looking for new an

peal to the people. He spares

As you grow older you find your
thoughts turning more to the past;
an ever increasing part is played in
your life by memories.
A subtle perfume perhaps; what
memories it can bring! Or the first
hint of coldness in the morning air
late in summer; how it brings
back autumn days long past!
But it is in music the richest memories lie. Melodies of the
past; how they thrill you, how they bring back scenes you had
thought were gone forever ! Happy times of long ago you will
live over again. And perhaps there is a melody of which you
are just a little bit afraid. But you want to hear it; you want
the sweet sadness it brings.
All the memories that music has stored up for you
Urn NEW EDISON
"The Phonugraph with a Soul"
will give in all the rich warmth and with the thrill of reality. It: will play
for you in the summer twilight; its music will mingle with the sightng
wind on long winter evenings. It will make you merry, or sad; it is ever
ready to serve and tireless in its service.
Visit our store and hear the melodies you have learned to love.
