On Tuesday a meeting of the ratepayers of this school dlHtrlct w as held to decide whether or not the school should be closed at the caprice of a few Individuals who feel rather chary nliout paying their taxes. The trustee who had objected most strenuously against keeping It open was not present. A considerable amount of discussion took place which finally ended in the question at Issue being put to a vote. The result was an unanimous decision to keep the school open. The trouble is largely duo to the prevailing belief that taxes cannot be collected on unpatented lands, and accordingly, if the school continues to run, debt Is being incurred. Well, as far as thati goes one would think the Interest on the debentures would at any rate have to b3 paid, nnd as for the actual expense of running the school, the government grant largely defrays that. It would Indeed be a retro-gade movement If the school were closed, and hurtful to the place. The Keston and l'lpestone literary picnic took place yesterday. Hot winds, however hard on vegetation, are beneficial to a picnic, nt least, It seems so. Home lf95 were taken in at the refreshment stand. Sports were indulged tn, but the high wind hindered the football. Four teams were present, Reston, Pipestone, Flndiay and Huston, l'lpestone and Keston having respectively beaten Huston and Flndiay, played together, but the game resulted In a draw. The speakers of the day were Mescrs. Forke, Lothian and l'eacock. Hot southerly winds are prevailing and doing some damage; the grass Is drying up, and wheat In places Is suffering. Everything will be all right If we soon get a shower of rain. Wheat la coming Into head and many fields are very heavv. In fact, there has been no such prospect of a crop for some years. Mrs. Munro, who hns been in Vlrden for a week returned home yesterday. Miss Jackson, sister to Jackson, has arrived from Ontario on a visit.
