little arrangement and having an inch
fan connected by geerlng to a crank
adjustable to a sweep or 8 to 24 Inches,
at the option of the operator. The
parts are neatly encased. . For every
revolution ot the crank the fan makes
45 revolutions, sending a great vol
ume of air through a tube to the fire.
It Is a charming little macbine and a
delight to almost every person - who
sees It. An attachment is. obtainable

IT HAPPEN MONDAY.
The Bond Election But Three Hours
. for Voting The Plan.-
The bond election - to determine
whether or not district number nine
will provide ample accommoda
tions for its school children, tran
spires next Monday afternoon. The
polls will open, at the public
school building . at one o'clock p.
m.; and will close at four, giving
but three hours to the voting.
The proposition of the board has
been partly changed, and those
wbo vote "yes" Monday, will vote
for the purchase of the Diller block
and for the erection thereon, ; of a
hew building of sufficient dimen
sions to accommodate all students
now, and so planned asto'be suit
able for additions of needed rooms
as they shall be required hereafter
For the purpose, and for redemp
tion of so much of the outstanding
bonded indebtedness as may be pos
sible out of the amount, the sum
of $8,ooo in new bonds is proposed
to be issued. There is assurance
that the bonds will be taken on a
basis of four per cent interest,
which will make a saving - of one
per cent on such of the old bonded
debt as may be redeemed.
1 Members of the board are of the
opinion that the bonds will be vot
ed under the present plan . There
is some opposition, however. Some
people want an addition built to the
present school . building, which
ought not, under any circumstances,
to be done. Others want a ward
building in each end of the ytown,
one or both tobe built this year, ac
cording as circumstances . may . re
The district owns a block near the
Southern Pacific sta'ion. The re.
port has been in circulation that
the block would revert to the Avery
heirs in case it should cease to be
owned by the district for use as
school purposes, but this is not
true. The deed was for a consid
eration of $425, and is the usual 1
warranted conve37ance. . ?
The board has an option en the
Diller block at a price of $3,000. It
is the plan to secure if possible a
vacation of tbje street between the
two blocks, and convert the whole
property into school grounds . It
is said that if the present scheme is
defeated, there is a plan on foot to
petition the board for the addition
of more rooms to the present school
The opinion is practically univer
sal, that something must be done
at once to relieve thfc crowded con-!
dition of the school rooms. - Rooms
designed for forty pupils with more
than sixty in them, an old
church with its quota of little ones
iri bad ventilation, and playing in
the public street, with the prospect
that with increased attendance some
old warehouse may yet have to be
used for stowing away a teacher
and a room full of pupils, together
with that other, disagreeable
thought that a partial effect of the
crowding and lack of comfortable
accommodations may make more
little slabs in the cemetery; jail these
have set many parents to hoping
that the district may do its duty by
the little ones, and build something
somehow and somewhere.
