Sunday fom Portland and on Monday
returned her school work as 7th and

after spending a few days in Pendle

Boardman is rejoicing, and it
hoped that the rejoicing is not pre
mature, because the smallpox epidem
ic is ended. Nearly all of the quar
antines were lifted Sunday. The
Wicklanders, Messengers and Hon-1
mans were released from smallpox
quarantine and the Davises and
Boardmans from the mumps. The
siege has lasted for two months with
first one and then another new case
appearing and it has been a long and
expensive affair. Five weeks of school
were lost and it will be a difficult
matter for the pupils to make up the
lost time, and it is to be hoped that
where pupils fail to make their grades
parents will understand that it was
due to unusual conditions and not
criticize the teachers.
