The Only Way
Owing to tin* fnct that no janitor
had been secured for the schools
Tuesday, on onler of the li-unnl of
directors. Mr. King, the principal,
dosed  them    f"i*   tie'   day.     Tlie
government only allows s20 a
month for janitor work iu four
school rooms, ami in consequence
it is impossible to keep the rooms
in a sanitary condition It is a
shame to pen uii Ml) to ilu children
in a room that is nol ihorou^hly
cleaned each day. for it is in this
way that much sickness is caused.
Inspector Wilson promised a sufficient increase iu the janitor fund
but it has not been forthcoming,
and the closing of the school may
prove au emphatic reminder.
