two unusually large orders for print-
stationery. These orders Include

tld believes tlml the people of this
district want their choice nf the best
in ihe printing line, an.l the Herald
proposes to see that they have this
opportunity. If conditions remain as
promising two months from now as
Ihey do now, aud the prospects are
that they will be far belter, the Herald will have a large addition built
in its already large and handsome
building aud will have a ruling machine and bindery established, with
one ol lhe largest job presses i-vci
brought to tho province, making three
in all, besides its large ncwspapel
press. Tlie Herald does not believe
in the back seal policy, hut prefers
to lead. It has tbe best equipped
newspaper plant to be found in anj

G. A. King, principal of the school,
has invited the parents of thelown
and all other friends ol school work
to the school ou Friday afternoon,
March 21 th, al 3 o'clock. The purpose ul lhc meeting was touched en
by Inspector Wilson al Ihe public
meeting last fall at the time of lhe
teachers' institute, Mr. Wilson mentioned that une great drawback lo
the progress of education is lhe facl
that the schools do not come near
enough to the homes, or the homes
lo the schools. It Is hoped at this
meeting to effect an organization of
all who are interested in thework ol
the schools. In many other cities
these organizations have had the effect of making the school what it
should be—the social center of lhe
community. The healthy interest
aroused gives a great impetus to
school activity of every kind. The
purposes and opportunity of such a
club will be outlined at the meeting.
It Is safe to say that this will
prove to be the most important movement in school matters yet made in
Cranbrook. Every parent, every person wbo has an interest in education,
in the progress ol the schools should
be present and make the .meeting an
inspiring success.

many occasions warned the public
against using this water. A t
