graded school, and the tost of
maintaining such a school is no
more than that of the country
school that ruus only three or four
months during the year.
While the system is new to our
people, they are anxious to learn of
it and have been getting reports
from localities where it has beeu
tried and are satis',led that nothing
but good can come of the movement.
Three districts—49, 110 and 117
—have called an election and ou
next Thursday, July 9, the first
vote in Woodward county for the
consolidation of school districts
will he cast.
The people are to be commended
for their interest in education, and
while the result of the election can
not be foretold, there is every rea-
son to believe the people will vote
for the consolidated school, and
not be satisfied until we have a
school that is equalled only by the
Under the system the schol'.rs
rom a distance are delivered at
the building each morning and tak-
en home in a wagon furnished by
the school board, under the care
of a trusted man whd is under bond
for the safedelivery of the children.
This does away with the loitering
on the road, where all mischief is
started, and of the tramping thro
the storms by the pupils.
If the election carries, the dis-
trict will erect a new building, and
it will require a corps of three
teach en and a principal to handle
the school from the start. The
school will be graded and a hi
school course will be added where
the pupil can tit himself lor busi-
ness just the same as at Alva or
some other point where it has beeu
necessary to send them as soon as
they had passed the 4th reader, as
in the past.
How much better every mother
will feel to have her child at home
every night and at the same time
receiving the advantage of a good
school, a school where they can'be
fitted for life's work. Such a
school as this is the result of con-
8 olidation. Education in the high-
er branches is brought right to
your door. All you have to do to
receive these benefits is to reach
out and grasp it.
Tt is seldom that such opportuni-
ties are presented to the people of
a new country as are presented to
us at this time to secure for our
children the advantages in school-
ing— and a good education is the
best inheritance left to a child—as
is presented to the people of these
districts at this time.
It is the duty of every voter to
attend this election and cast their
ballot ou this question. Study the
matter over from every point and
then go to the polls and be sure
that your neighbor goes, too.
There is but one result if each one
will do his duty, aud that result
will be a school that not only our
people will be proud of, but one
the entire couutry will point to
Gardner's for bargains in shoes.
