Another school election will be held Tuesday. Mr. Eklundwill not give title of the school property unless a $7,000.00 building isput up. Now we want every voter to take in consideration that we must havea school before cold weather sets in, that if the school is built, it willgive employment to quite a number of men. These men will have to be fedand the hotels will reap a little benefit, the lumbermen will get a rakeoff, the hardware men get their share and during the construction of theschool the laborers will spend their money right in Hallock and we willget a little of it, while we will gladden the hearts of those little critters,who nearly freeze to death when they attend school in some of our coldestwinter days in the present small buildings. The election, Tuesday, willto bond for $7,000.00. Remember the first election was to bond for $10,000.00,and the voters managed to reduce it to $7,000,00. Now we must admit thatthe "rag has been chawed" so much over this question that thereis nothing left of it, and for the sake of common sense let everybody turnout Tuesday and cast a vote in favor of it and be done.

The school bond election for bonding $7,000.00 held lastTuesday, carried by a vote of 56 to 16. This with what is in the treasurywill furnish us with a good school. The amount in the treasury will probablynot be used for building purposes, but will be used in furnishing the school.
