School Election The school elec
tion on Monday called out a fair repre
sentation of the voters of the district.
Mr. Walter Ketchuin was elected
School Director, to serve three years,
and Mr. A. N. Arnold was re-elected
School Clerk. The proposition to vote
a tax of 500, to enable the Directors
to run a free school during the coming
year, was voted down by a large ma- j
jority. By a vote of the meeting the j
$1,900 accrued to the District from the
school fund, wis ordered to be loaned
by tlte Directors, and the interest re
ceived thereon tiled in defraying inci
dental expenses of District School
property. Tlie rejwrt of the Schoo'
CJerk showed that he had collected
some $338 more than ordered toon the
$2,000 tax of last year for the support
of free schools, and that this sum re
mained unexpended and unappropri
ated. Itwasordeied that so much of
this $338 as the Directors may deem
necessary, be expended in graveling
tlie school grounds, and in defraying ,
incidental expenses, and that the bal-:
ance go to the general fond. The
hinds seem to have been economically !
managed during tlie past year. We
are sorry that "free schooling" is not
to be continued in this District.
A SvocESfc Tbe Erodelphian Soci
ety of tlie Albany Collegiate Institute
composed of young ladies), gave a
Fair on Friday evening of last week,
in tire Register building. The room
was tastefully fitted up, but wasn't
near large enough to contain the large
Dumber of people in attendance. We
enjoyed, the occasion hugely, as did
t verybody else, seemingly, attending.
The aprons went off like the ice cream,
in great haste but of roast and baked
chickens, et cetera, these was an over
plus, and it was announced that lunch
would be set the next day, for the
hungry, at 25c a whiz. Tlie lunch was
also patronized well, and the Society,
after paying off all liabilities, netted
the sum of $141 50. This money is
to be used in purchasing a library for
the Society. The whole affair was
well managed, and proved in the
highest degree creditable and satisfac
tory all round.
Woman's Simple Device A Tale
of one City. Here's how one poor,
abused, mug-suffering' woman "cir
cumvented" Hie "old man" it s good
reading: A Danbury lady, says the
.Vtf., becoming tired or bothering
with wood, besought her husband to
get a coal stove, and devote the rest of
ilieir life to that fuel, but he wouldn't
do it. He said wood was cheaper,
and he might as well bo chopping it
and saving the money. Having ex
hausted her eloquence without any
effect she hit upon a very simple
devise. She extended her clothes line
i ver his cboppingblook. After supper
he adorned himself with his ax and
went out for fuel, and five minutes later
came tearing into the house without
his hat and with his mouth halt full
of blood, lacerated gunw and broken
teeth. A bright and cheerful coal tire
now illuminates that house.
Rear this and be Uaitt! 'llie
largest stock of men's, boy's and chil
dren's CLOTHING ever brought up
from Ban Francisco is at X. Baum's
store, ami the -rush" is big. There
i4 no one leaving the store without
Imying a Coat Pants, Vest Hat or
i '.ap. Boots or Shoes, Shirt or Drawers,
( lollar or Neck-tie. etc., etc., and eve
rybody seems to be pleased, aud satis
tied that they bought cheap, as there is
the place to buy bargains.. 34.
