Until rae^en    years ago,   Lippert's  hftj had been spent in the show   business,   lie could speak live lanigujaged  and any number of dialects. A g-ltcj^-  trotter's career is not conducive    in  saving and   Lippert had only a    26-  oent piece    when     he found himself  sick and homeless m Oregon.      Mrs  Alary Riggs,     a florist, gave him   a  home and he quit the show bvsiness  for good,  making his    home thereafter with his ljenefactress, in    whoso  house he died.

As  a .matter of fact, their houses,  their  plant ani machinery,  and  their permanent biiildiiiDgs could not depreciate  25 per cent.,'and therefore,' he could  not    understand    'why     the director  should    write   off   such an immense  sum.

In the two years   work   over three  hundred        accidents have       been  attended to, both major and  minor, and the relief of suffering and  better managements of cases over  past years is certainly a great satisfaction.

Tho Board of School Trustees
met last evening in the Council
Chamber, present E. Quejmell, (chair
man.) trustees, Barnes, Barlow, Plan
ta and Manson.
The minutes of  the previous     regular meeting were read and adopted.
A   communication  was   read     from
Mr.     Sedgewick,   Principal    of,    the
High  School,   requesting   that     some
scientific   apparatus-   urgently    iKee-d-
'ed, bo  supplied.     This   was   granted
by the Board;  also asking    that tlie
High  School   be relieved ��� of I he-' senior grade.     This grade,    which,   coi-
responds    with  -first year   University
work-  is       taken up  only    at      Now
Westminster under three scachers,   nt
Victoria   under nine lone hers nnd   nt
Vancouver   under   eleven.   During    nt
least half of the school year, we hav^
iu Nanaimo   to deal with   five    dit,-
tinct classes,   three of those    classes
are being prepared   lor   examination
and demand help in .some  IhirLy-two
subjects of   test.     With  these   consid
erations  in   view,   the   teachers     con
ventioti,  lately held,   resolved      that
t(he   smaller      High Schools     should
not   take   up   university   work.    _' It
would therefore appear advisable that
the High  School    should _ be   .reliuv;
ed of  the senior       grade,    at    least
until   such   time   as 'a third   .teacher
can be appointed.
After ' sofme 'discussion the Board
decided to grant the request, as
they were not in a position to take
up tbe Question of tlie appointment
of a third teacher, and it did* nqt
seem wise 'to handicap the lower
grades in the High School by " attempting to perform the university
work    or only two  or three pupils
Arr. Dongan, secretary of the Teacl^
ers' Convention wrote asking to remit $-L0O the Board's share of the
incidental expenses hi connection
wilh the recent convention.
