The camps remain free from sickness, hard- ly requiring the services of a doctor. It a pity'that someone with capital should not come into Stirling and build gome houses. There are sev- eral farmers living in the immpdiflte vicinity who would gladly rent houses they could be secured: With the harvesting .of the present crop, there will undoubtedly be a building boom at the "Junction at least a half dozen men in the Stirling district just waiting for.a crop to build and have their families live in town. Several of these are so far away at the present time that it is impossible 'or the smaller .children to get; to school, move will be made In order to grant.them this privilege.

McLean !u- forms us that he has -already recom- mended a school built: for this portion of tho town. It would seem, then, that, all that remains to be done, is to re- ceive the report of the Inspector, when ihe work will immediately begin.
