THE NEW SCHOOL ACT.
The now School^ Act' tho principal
provisions of which are published else-
whore 'n this issue, goes into effect,
with the new year. The changes iu
some particulars- affecting rural schools
are quite extensive and it may take
some time for school boards and ratepayers to become familiar with the
new act.
Naturally it is tho question of (Irian
ces for the support of the schools, that
will receive the greatest amount of attention from the ratepayers. Under
the old law tho government paid
the whole salary of the teacher and
granted f 100 for expenses of maintenance such as caretaker, fuel, water,
etc. Under the now act the ratepayers in the district have to raise a
part of the money required, by direct
taxation. As will be seen the government gives a per capita grant of 8180
per annum to rural schools and an additional graut of ono dollar for every
one dollar raised, up to one hundred
dollars. Besides the additional salary
of the teacher, the school district is
required to raise tho amount necessary
for maintenance. At the prosent rate
of teacher's salary viz. sixty dollars
per month, which it would not be wise
or in the interests of the school to
decrease, there will bo required about
$870 for school purposes in Yniir
l'ext year, of which the government
pays $580 leaving a baianco of close
to §300 to be raised by direct
taxation. The exact amount to be
rained bv the district must bo docid
tpd at the annua! school meeting, The
.vhole of this amount will not be
paid by the residents of tbo district.
Non-residents ot tho district owning
real property therein nre liable to taxation as also aro corporations and
lorupauies. The trustees have simply
to send to the Assessor and Collector
for the assessment district, a list of
all persons, resident and i.on-resi.lei.l
who own roal estate in the district
and of all residents liable to bo assessed for personal property or income to
Set'uer with a statement of the amount
determined upon at thO annual school
meeting a« required to lie raised
The assessment is then made and the
rates collected under the provisions of
the "A-so-wnrent Act 100-".." The
rates are payable immeli.itely after
the completion of the. assessment roll
Tho sums so collected are remitted to
the treasurer erf the council »f Publi.
instruction, who pays over halfyoarl*.
to tbo board of school trustees) the
-miounts collected from such  district
Whether, the now regulations will
be moro sali.sf.lc*mv than ttlC old,
remains to be seen. It is oe'rtainlj- a
departuii from the principle of entire
stale control of ed_fe-{t-_h and pliic*.
mom rcsponssblity on the school trus-
that they are already taxed quite enough will be inclined to grumble
when nn ndilitional number of mills ....
tl.e dollar are added to their tax. If
there is a corresponding reduction
ill tlie '.-ale lovied for other purposes,
there will be no real cause of complaint. It will, .it anv **ate have
tho effect of causinc tbe taxpayers to
lake more interest in the educational
affairs of the town. The school in
the past has done good work considering the difficulties under which both
teachers and trustees have labored nn.l
it is hoped that under tlie new act
its efficiency may bo greatly increased*
The Herald wishes its readers and
llie public in genera!, a very men}
Christmas and a happy and prosper
oils New Year.
Tiio Western Federation of Miners
is discussing a plan to raise a million
dollars to embark in the mining business on a co-operative basis, each
member contributing ten-dollars.
Tho latest returns from Saskatchewan indicate that the Scott govern
ment will have a majority of only
three or four in the new legislature.
Considering the number of controversial questions ivhich are sure to come
up in the organization of the now pro
vince, this can hardly be considered a safe working. nmjaiity. The
official cunt will be made on Saturday and this may upset tho claims
of either side, to some extent.
T-lis is a seis'i'i of gn 1 will ml a
timo when tlio brotherhood of man
is drawn closer than at dny other ti.n"
of the year Lit us then make i
stronger resolution than ever to work
for the prosperity of the district that
its future may be brighter than in tlie
past and by this unity of effort accomplished more during the comiu.
year than ever before.
Some days ago at a meeting of the
Ministerial Association in St Catharines, Out., the statement was mi.de
by ono clergyman and corroborated
by others, that Western Cahada was
without Bibles ami that in administering oaths, magistrates sometimes used
'Gulliver's Travels" The Toronto
Star adds piquancy to the unintcntion -
al joke by remarking: If tbo witness
kisses the I.iliputian side of the b»ok
bo only tells little ones, if ho happens
to strike the Brobdignrgiaii end of
the story, nothing short of whoppers

nu>?.                  Yunrril-- Mrs Mason's Christmas.
(Continuediron) last week.)
Jack stared  at the speaker   thinking he must have misunderstood him,
Do 1 understand sir, that   I   run   not
to be allowed un occasional   drink   of
liquor? yes. Mason that is just   what
you are to undo rstaiid. And what, Sir
if 1 may usk, retorted  Jack, his   tine
flushing darkly, is   the   occasion   for
such mi unusual  demand?
Well,  Air, Mason,    to explain   our
position concisely, I will say that   wo
are ofton under contract to fill orders
within  a   certain   time   limit,    and
our   failuro   to   comply   may   result
in serious consequences.    We  cannot
always secure a man to fill your place
I'or the asking, and as a result certain
parts of our business   suffer   in   consequence.    Unfortunately,     you   are
among many who cannot   indulge  in
an occasional drink,   without  finally
becoming intoxicated -and   of   course
unfit for duty.    It is true   that   this
only happens occasionally   but   we do
not wish it to happen at all,   therefore
1 have decided to ask you to <|uit en-
tirely.    Will you comply   witli   tin's
condition or not.
Never, shouted Jack, springing to
his feet and trembling with rage. *
v/ill never allow any person ti tell me
how.often I shall or shall not take a
drink of liquor. The few days I have
laid off on that, accouu t wee deducted
from my pay check, and did nit coil'*-
. tern the company.
The face of the iron merchant never
lost its composure for a moment-. He
never got angry. It was'iit business
and accomplished nothing, lie had
.spent some time, for him, in an effort
to explain why it was necessary to
ask for the promise but to no purpose.
He would spend no more.
Very well, ho replied, composedly
reaching for thejcheclc book, and selecting a blank check, rapidly filling it
out, we will discuss the matter no
further. Here i.s our check for
your service for to day, but we will
dispense with it in the future. Jack
.glanced at tho crisp business looking
.pieco of paper and delibortely throwing it in the stove, strode through the
office and slamming the outer door be
hind him made for the saloon on the
, corner.
Tho whistle of the iron works ' had
. long since shrieked the signal thatjthe
days work was ended.
Little Mamie had sobbed herself
to sleep asuing for -'Papa". Mrs
Mason's annoyance at finding the supper growing cold changed tn anxiety
and then to alarm as the darkuess
deepened into the shades of night.
A knock at the door 9tartled her so
that in her overwrought nervous state
she could scarcely suppress a scream,
Has liy opening the door she saw two
men walking rapidly away. And
Jack—yes, it wan Jack, but so helplessly drunk he could scarcely stand.
Let us in mercy, drop the curtain
on the misery, shame and humilia tion
iu tl.e Mason family that  night.
At day light next ruoruing, sleep
finally in mercy came to the relief of
Mrs Mason. She slept long and heavily. Little snow birds leaped upon
the window ledge, twittering their
morning song, aud looking in vain for
their regular crumbs. A ray of morning sun found the face of mother and
ihild as they lay clasped iu each
other's arms.
Jack, said his ivife that, evening,
iftor Mamie hint been snugly tuokert in
bed. She arose softly from her sewing
as she spoke, and gently kneeling by
his chair, clasped one of his hands in
hers. L>e»r Jack, I have nevef yet ask
Dd a special favor of you. Will you
^rantmeone now? She bent an imploring look up into his face, a look
that might have been seen on trio face
_f an angel seeking the return of a lost
■pul to Hod. Ob Jack, Husband, I
nave a strange present ment, thut wc
nay not all be together much longer,
•for the love of God, Jack, grant ma
-.bis favor for once. It ia .'or Mamie's
•■ake. not mine. Why, Helen, he, re-
tnrned, touched and not a little   awed

you io promise mc  to return   to  the
work-, nn.l agree io what they ussed of
you.    Jack half roso to his ,fect    hut,
his wife gently pulled him hack. .'ael;.
Mamie is .lying for the   want of food

thai?    Yes, Jack. I do, and tne doctor
implied as much, although he did  not
say so in words and she grows, weaker
daily.    Uli! Jnck1 Jack! How can yon j
hesitate, when our darling's   life is iu i
tl.e balance?    J would not tell vou  of
Iliis, while you were ,i;.i ihlc to   return
to work, knowing it would only worry

Mantle dying -The poor wife could go

I will do/as you ask, Helen, hul. by
God, I'll get even with him for this, if
it takes nie the rest of my   life.
Ile kept hud promise, hut arrangements had been made to lill his place,
aud at preseut there were no vacancies-
He began to realize his position, but,
like many others* laid the blame everywhere except where il belonged. Mrs.
Mason had ordered a small supply of
previsions on the strength of her assurances that her husband was return
ing lo work, but it would soon be gone.
Jack sought consolation by returning
to the saloons and brooding over
fancied wrongs. It was Christmas ev,*
but cold and cheerless was tlm hearth
of the Masons. Little Matriic had
grown so weak that she could not leave
her bed. Tlle sunken cheeks and wax
eu hands showed plainly to anyone bu.
a mother, who hoped against hope,
that the end could not be far off. Tin
Doctor luui left at three o'clock. 1
have dune everything that jiicdical skill
can do. were his parting words. Should
your la.ighier not awaken by six o'clock
you must send for mc, and i|cickly.
