COST OF SCHOOLS
Some Interesting Statistics
Taken From the Annual Report
The annual report on the public
schools of British Columbia, brought
down last week, contains some interesting information, and is in itself
an index in the rapid increase of the
population of the province.
Tbe total enrolment in all the colleges and schools was 36,227, an increase of 2913 over tbat of the previous year. The number of boys
was 18,(151), and of girls 17,568. The
grand total days attendance made by
all the pupils enrolled was 4,960,653,
an increase of '2155. The percentage
of regular attendance was 68.97, tbe
highest in tbe history of the public
soh'ools.
The enrolment during the year iu
the McGill University College of
British Columbia, one branch of
which 1b situated in Vancouver and
the other in Victoria, was 129. Of
this number 77 were boys and 52
were girls.
- The enrolment in the high schools
during the year was 1809. Of this
numbee 812 were boys and 997 were
girls.
Of tbe eighteeu high schools in
the province the enrolment of three
runs into three figures, viz: Van-
couver, 810; Victoria, 293; New
Westminster, 184. Nelson with 64
pupils, has the best percentage of attendance with 94.65. Vancouver's
percentage of attendance was 79.32;
Victoria, 81.48; and New Westminster, 71.52.
The total enrolment of graded city
schools was 19,797, of which 10,279
were boys and 9518 girls.
The total enrolment in rural municipality schools was 7024,of which
3652 were boys and 3372 were girls.
South Vancouver has easily the
largest enrolment of these schools
with a total of 1103.
Tbe grand total coat of education
in the province for the year 1908-09
was 81,220,509, of which $94,268.
for the city of Vancouver, was by
far Ihe largest of an electoral district.
Victoria followed with 836,109,
closely run by Okanagan district
witb 835,473. The cost
pupil on enrolment in
only two class-rooms, it was impossible for the teachers to lecture to
advantage. As the provincial normal school building was almost completed, however, they hope before
the end of next session to be occupying more commodious! quarters.
W. P. Argue, secretary of the
Koyal Institution for the Advancement of Learning, reports as follows:
The college year 1908 09 has been
one of quiet but steady progress.
More than in the past students have
come in from all parts of British
Columbia, so that tbe claim can be
fairly made that tbe college is provincial in its scope. Rossland,
Kamloops, Kelowna, Chilliwack,
Nanaimo, New Westminster and
Ladysmith bave students n attendance.
David Wilson, officer in charge of
the free text book branch of the de
partment of education, reports
that the system has worked well
since the branch was opened in 1908.
Since that time 430 schools have
been supplied with a larger or
smaller proportion of these books.
Tbe net cost of these books to the
province since the system was inaugurated is #32,763.30.
Tbe free text book branch distributed during the past year school
books and supplies which would
have cost parents and school boards
833,422.15. To place these in the
hands of the sohool children of tbe
province through the free text-book
branch of the education department
called for an expenditure of $25,-
687.37, the items of which are:
Te*t books (laid down cost), 820,-
914.98; distribution, freight, etc.,
$1,376.74; distribution (salaries of
staff), 83,345.65; total, 825,627.65.
The net profitB of tbe year's business is, therefore, #7,784.78, the
percentage of profit bciug 30J per
cent.

The preliminary steps required
by law in the organization and incorporation of agricultural associations were taken at a iargely attended meeting in the city hall last
Monday evening, and as a result it
is quite probable that the first agri

thiB city next fall.
Mr. O. M. Fripp called the meet-
iug to order, and, on motion, he was
elected chairman of evening. VV.

On motion of H. W. Collins, the
meeting adopted a resolution declaring in favor of organization and
incorporation.
Fred Clark enlightened the meeting as to the proper procedure in the
formation and incorporation of such
an association by reading tbe provincial Act covering the subject.
He was of the opinion that there
was no better time than the present
to organize and elect officers.

ing decided to proceed with the organization work. The resolution
placed the membership fee at $1.00.
On motion of Massrs. Lawrence
and Clark, it was decided to christen
the organization the Grand Forks
Agricultural association.
On motion of A. B. Hood, it was
decided to elect a provisional directorate of ten members, who are to

to complete the work of organization.
On a vote being taken, ihe following directors were elected: H.W.
Collins, H. C. Kerman, I1 red Clark,
J. D. Honsberger, J. L Lawrence,
A. B. Weedle, G. M. Fripp. G. S.

Mr. Collins favored the acquisi
tion by the association of the old
driving park and race track as a
place for holding agricultural exhibitions.    For $600 or 8700, he said,

■SATUKDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1910
There should be no attempts made
to minimize the importance of the
formation the Grand Forks Agricultural association. In this issue we
luck the space to point out the benefits that the city and valley will
dervie from holding annual agricultural and industrial exhibitions, but
we feel sure that the good results to
be gained in the way of wider publicity from such enterprises will be
apparent to everyone. In other cities
where fairs are held the citizens con-
tibute liberally toward their support,
and it may be taken for granted
that the people of this district,
when called upon, will not be outdone   in   this respect.
Credit should be given Captain
Spraggett for bringing the matter of
the organization of a company or battery, to be attached to the Nelson
regiment, to the attention ot the
Kettle Valley Rifle association.
With such good material to choose
from, and a drill instructor of Mr.
Wheeler's abilities, Grand Forks
should have t company second to
none in the province.
The story from the coast, that the
naval question is liable to bring on a
general election in the near future,
may be treated as^ a huge joke. The
question is one that the Dominion
government is solving satisfactorily
to the people, excepting the small
percentage who are suffering from

NEWS OF THE CITY
The case of Mr. Hansell, of Omaha, and Mr. Knappen, of Minneapolis, against Sam Horner, of this
city, was tried in the supreme court
beforo Judge Clement at Nelson this
week. In 1907 Mr. Horner sold the
Carraher ranch, located near this
city and consisting of 312 acres, to
Messrs. Hansell and Knappen for
812,000, receiving a cash payment
of 88.030 at the time of the sale.
After the purchasers had had the
property surveyed they claimed that
the land had been misrepresented to
.licni, and entered suit for a return
of the 88,030. Judge Clement rendered his decision in favor of defendant, stating tbat the plaintiffs
had failed to give proper evidence
showing that defendant had misrepresented thc property. The court
ordered the payment of the balance
due, amounting to about 85000,
in four months from date or the
ranch would revert back  to defend
David Whiteside miuie a trip to

EXPERT HOCKEY
The Sun's statement last week
that tbe Ladies' Hockey club of
this city did not require a handicap
from their opponents appears tohave
been verified in their game at Nelson on Thursday night. The Daily
News says:
A large and enthusiastic crowd of
spectators was present at the rink
last night to watch the game of
hockey between the All Stars of
Nelson and the Wonders of Grand
Forks, two ladies tea-ns, who are
real experts at tbe art of hotkey.
The game ended in a victory for the
Grand Forks girls with a score of +
to 1.
At 8.35 the Wonders took the ice
for preliminary practice. They
looked extremely neat and businesslike in red skirts, with white sweaters with the letters G. F. in red on
the breast. Five minutes later they
were joined by the All Stars of Nelson, who appeared most becomingly
attired in white sweaters, with letter
S. in red on the breaet, and dark
red Bkirts. Caps completed the costumes of both teams, those of the
Wonders being white, and of the
All Stars red. A few minutes later
the teams lined up for play, the eyes
of each team Bparkling with determination, although neither aggregation probably realized with what
whirlwinds they were about to contend.
The line-up was as follows:

Helen Sloan, the centre  for   the
Wonders, got the first crack  at   tin-
rubber, sending it into the left wing
of the Stars, who pounced on it with
I the speed of a rifle shot  and  hurled
it to centre ice, where it was kept
flashing back and forth for some
seconds. After ten minutes' supreme
excitement, during which time the
puck was principally in Nelson territory, Miss Haverty in a scrimmage
close to the Nelson goal made the
first score. Five minutes later Miss
Anderson made a brilliant dash and,
shooting at a distance of twenty
feet, made a second count.
The Stars, in a magnificent effort,
succeeded in carrying the rubber
close to the Wonders' goal and one
minute later Miss Cavanaugh shot
the first goal for Nelson. More exciting play followed, and then the
bell rang half time, with the score
2-1 in favor of the visitors.
After ten minutes' rest the game
started again with redoubled vigor
and supporters of both teams renewed their chorus of clamor and
bugle calls. The game was again
one inaelstorm of excitement, the
Nelson girls showing up well as
speedy skaters, while the Grand
Forks team was conspicuous for
cleverness in handling the puck and
good combination play. In ten
minutes Miss Sloan added another
count lo the Grand Forks score; but
the Stars, full of hope yet to con-
quor, put up a strong fight. With
a fall here and a clash there, but
with no one hurt, the game went on.
Belle Goodwin, defence of the Stars,
worked nobly, doing some exciting
stunts to ward off the attacks of the
enemy. Winnifred Ellis, at centre,
made some hot shots, but the little
goalkeeper for Grand Forks, with a
keen and watchful eye, warded off
the puck. Miss Manhart, as goalkeeper for Nelson, also excelled her
self, stopping many good shots from
Miss Deniuthon the left wing of the
enemy. Miss Gore, on right wing of
the Nelson team, made some long
runB with the rubber and did remarkable work in handling her
ground against the right wing of the
Wonders, who waB ttfice her size.
Two minutes before the bell rang
time Miss Dem uth made a second
count in the last half, and the game
ended with a score of 4 to 1 in favor
of the Graud Forks Wonders.
Misses Haverty, Anderson, Sloan
and Demuth made the counts for the
Wonders. Madeline Stendal, as
goalkeeper, was a star; Edna Traunweiser, on point, made good, and
Marie Anderson on right wing could
scarcely be beaten. Tbe Wonders, in
handling thc puck, show lhat tbt-y
have had much mure practice than
the Nelson Stars, who only formed
their team some few weeks ago. Ab
swift skaters, the Nelson girls are in
the lead, and with a little more practice they can beat anything in Canada. Miss Cavanaugh made the only
count for Nelson in last night's
game, but it cau truly be said tbat
they were All Stars.
After the game the players assembled in the Kagle ball, where a grand
banquet was given in honor of the
visiting ladids. After the dance at
the armory was ended, Wilkinson's
orchestra waB engaged, anil the re
maindes of the night was chased
with llvigg feet.

Remedies are Needed
Were we perfeet, which we are not, medicines would
not often be needed. But since our systems have become weakened, impaired and broken down through
indiscretions whioh have gone on from the early ales,
through countless generations, remedies are needed to
aid Nature in correcting our inherited and otherwise
acquired weaknesses. To reach the seat of stomach
weakness and consequent digestive troubles, there is
nothing so good a* Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, a glycerio compound, extracted from native medio-
inal roots—sold for over forty years with great satisfaction to all oseia. For
Weak Stomach, Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Pain in the Stomach after eating.
Heartburn, Bad Breath, Belching of food, Chronic Diarrhea and other Intestinal
Derangements, tha "Discovery" is a time-proven aad most efficient remedy.
