Board of Trustees of this district are wonder- ingfi what has, become of Gilbert Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the district. When last 'heard from some two months ago, he was in Lethbridge Since then all efforts'' to trace his whereabouts have been futile., Whe- ther lie considers his job a mere joke or has emigrated to the Catskill Mountains and gone off in a Rip Van Winkle sleep wo are unable to say but such gross negligence of his duty is causing the trustees much embar- rassment as he has taken with him the officially stamped bylaw which authorizes them to procure their de- bentures and proceed with the erec- tion of the school. They feel that at the present of progress this dis- trict will not have a school building in sixteen years, but if Mr. Johnson will awaken from his day dreams long enough to forward these papers j to the Board he will soon see a light on the literary horizon of this com- munity that will awaken him to a realization of the fact that a public office is a public trust and that while we may sometimes neglect home du- ties that involve only personal loss we must not 'neglect duties left to our care that effect loss and casts a damper on the progress of an entire community.

Twenty-five new brick Chouses are in- process of construction at present to provide lor the em- ployees who will start work as soon as the spur line from Kipp is com- pleted. The steel on this line is al- ready laid to within a mile of the and it will only be a, matter of days now until it is finished.
