Accounts for the month were then discussed, and payment authorized by the board, the chair- man stating that satisfactory mea- sures had been taken with regard to an account left in abeyance since last meeting.

Medical Inspection. The matter of medical inspection came up before the board, and a very able case was presented by the chair- man, -vvho held that a careful inspec- tion by a competent medical man should be made of every child upon entry to the school, and such inspec- tions to be made periodically during the term, so that the exact state of health of each child would be known by the attending physician, these in- spections to be compulsory. Dr. Galbraith warmly supported this as being most essential to the welfare of the children, and a great relief to the minds of both parents and guardians of the various scholars. For as the time approaches for dis- eases of an infectious nature, it will be far better and easier _to detect symptoms of that kind on the indi- vidual child, than to await the time of a wholesale epidemic, which, dur- ing the old regime of non-inspection, has been the inevitable result. Dr. Galbraith has been studying this question, and has been a keenly in- terested observer of the methods adopted by the School Board of the world's greatest metropolis, viz.: Lon- don, Eng., where strenuous methods are in operation for the detection of disease. But as Dr. Galbraith said, the conditions are not the same here, for there the congested maeses con- tribute to a. state of affairs that do not exist here. The hygienic stand- ard can be raised to a unique height in. this country on that account. After the matter had received con- siderable attention, and had been dis- cussed in a most spirited manner, Dr. Stewart moved the following resolu- Dr. Galbraith be asked to present a report re medical in- spection in schools; report to contain suggestions as to the plan to be car- ried out in inspection; an estimate of cost, and all the information that he can gather that he deems valuable to the This was heartily en- dorsed by the other members of the board, and was unanimously carried. A small matter was then raised re- specting an agreement in existence but awaiting the signature of the chairman and secretary. This was disposed of by G. H. Johnston making the following "That the chairman and secretary be authorized to sign the agreements; between the School Board and Messrs. Smith Bros, and Wilson, and William Head and Co. Furnishing New School. Furniture for the new school was the next item for consideration, but on account of. there being no samples or cuts on hand to select from, this matter was allowed to stand over, the chairman suggesting that a call should be upon the Supply Com- mittee to meet and discuss this later. The merits of a double blind sys- tem was explained to the board by Principal Hamilton, consisting of a blind operating the top to the centre, and another blind of similar length operating from the bottom also j to the centre, the top blind beiug al- lowed to overlap: This, it was stat- ed, would "allow the light to be cor- rectly regulated, no matter in what position the sun was in. In the sum- mer when the sun was high the hot rays could be excluded by the top blinds being drawn down sufficiently, and in the winter, when the brilliant rays were poured in by a low sun the bottom blind could be operated, when little or no actual light would be ex- cluded, just the unpleasantness of a brilliant light 171 the scholars' eyes being removed. This system seemed to meet with approval, although the matter as to choice of color has yet to be decided upon. With mutual good wishes and learty gripping of hands the last neeting of the School Board for. 1908 j vaa ended.

WHOLESALE OR RETAIL Phone M. A DARING ROBBERY Perpetrated in a Store in New York Big Haul Made. New York, Dec. sate rob- bery of unusual daring was revealed by Oscar C. Jackleft, a dealer of Third Ave., whose store last night- was looted of in cash and 000 in jewelry. The burglars entered by way of the cellar after wrenching several steel bars from the windows. They then sawed an opening in the ceiling, and through this entered the store above. Here, after vainly at- tempting to bore through the steel floor of the safe, which stood-under a lighted gas jet in plain view of the street, they managed to pry the combination from the safe, and through the small opening left man- ipulated the bolts and levers as to release the lock. The police believe that the cracksmen must have been and that they had accom- plices posted outside the store to j signal when the policeman on the beat or late passerby approached the j store. At such time the robbers, on being warned, would have hidden. un-' til the street was clear. There are living apartments direct- ly above the store. After rifling the safe the burglars carefully replaced the combination dials, and depart- ed. Little evidence was left of their work. i The Model Restaurant Got off to a good start last night and is now prepared to give the public service and menu that is unexcel- led in the city. boy.
