entire staff When one stops to think of the advantages to be derived from close contact with all the methods as they progress in a normal school parents particularly will realize the benefits their children are receiving from day to day as they go from stage to stage year after year It means much to the future in regard to competent teachers and the still better advantages to be derived from school life People in a community should not satisfied to simply know that in their midst are implanted excellent school systems such as the Aroostook State Normal school and High school afford but should try to their interest by personal visits to such institutions of learning thus increasing the interest of teacher and pupil and giving tne parent or friend a personal knowledge of the work being carried on for thevfuture good of rising generations People are too lax in this very thing and there are hundreds who send their children to school who never step inside a school building Scholars will feel a deeper interest if they have the co-operation of parents and friends and will thus be made to accomplish more Visitors always receive the utmost cordiality at the Aroostook Normal school and are shown the details of the institution in a hearty and beneficial manner The equipment of this school In the chemical and physical laboratories its library etc compare favorably with ary similar school in the state and additions are frequently made In the way of necessary appliances The future outi'ook for the school is bright and as citizens of a progressive community we should

a matter of which more will Le heard later on The meeting adjourned to Thursday evening Jan 31 Much is written and said now" of the water power and privileges of Ellsworth which are to be developed by the erection of the Union River dam and the News as again been requested to make mention of the facts gleaned from various sources Union river divides near its source into three parts known as the East branch the Middle branch and the West branch Flowing into the East branch are Rocky pond Big and Little Spectacle ponds Big Bog river and 1 imber brook Into the Middle branch flow Lead Mountain pond Upper and Lower Middle Branch ponds Seven Mile brook and Leighton brook emptying into the West branch we find Alligator lake Brandy pond Great pond Morrison pond Big and Little Buffalo streams stream Collar brook Dead stream Frost brook Webb brook Jordan brook Dumb brook Beech Hill stream and Green Lake stream And emptying into the main river are Molasses pond pond Abram's pond Scam-mon pond Little Bog river pond stream Beech Hill pond Green lake Mountainy pond and Branch pond and there are others- many of which are familiar to the lumber dealers of our section Union river flows about 60 miles from its source to its mouth through a region dotted with lakes and ponds of various sizes and the supply of water is unfailing The lay of the land affords dozens of desirable locations for factories and industries Within a space of two miles of Ellsworth are seven dams and only partly used Fishermen are having hard weather now and but two and three of the most courageous have been venturing out for the catch this week Since the disaster of the Maud Mul-loch near Otter Creek when one of the seamen was drowned in Manset harbor the fishermen have been more cautious and not inclined to take so many chances of losing their lives in the rough weather And when fishing is quiet business is dull about the fish wharves as there are no shipments of any consequence and there cannot many orders be filled The election of Mr John Whitney of the firm of Whitcomb Haynes Co of Ellsworth Falls as president of the Ellsworth Board of Trade is a tribute justly merited To the firm of which he is junior member belongs the distinction of being connected with and interested in more business enterprises for the benefit of Ellsworth people than any other in the city It is not necessary to enumer-atee nor go into detail for it is well known how they have taken hold of things and stood behind and at the helm and pushed them through and In so doing have benefited all and everybody Therefor aside and apart from the ability and experience of Mr Whitney to fill the office to which he has been elected there is the reason mentioned why it should have gone to this firm and it is the side which appeals to many especially the working people with whom he is unusually popular Down at Sullivan the Benvenue Granite Company is equipping its quarry with machinery for operating this spring Three derricks are to be set up three stationary engines a railway of a mile and a half laid and various other improvements made to facilitate the handling of their granite which Is to be quarried It is said that this firm has a large order for stone work a part of which is to be filled at the Sullivan plant and the remainder at Stonington The air is full of electric railroads in Ellsworth it is the chief topic of conversation until magy are coming to think that it matters not so much by whom the road is built running to the island so long as some one docs It and goes about It in good earnest If on the other hand people understand that charters are being obtained for the purpose of blocking it that would be a subject for serious consideration and one that would result in measures being taken But indications point to the fact that the charter as granted is in the hands of men who have the means and the desire to see the road built and that they are doing their utmost to put it through Orland is to have a new power dam according to all indications and this means another industrial development In Hancock county The powers of the Masons heirs and others of Orland have been purchased by Shavr of Boston for the purpose of power development and In the near future work is to begin there BjWDOIN Big Audience Saw the Musical Extravaganza Wednesday Night-Other News

important matters 'of legislation affecting the interest of this section of the State is that which has been introduced carrying an appropriation for the benefit of the Aroostook State Normal School We have from time to time furnished some facts to -the News descriptive of the work that is being done at this institution and the facilities that are being provided here to those who are ambitious to acquire the training necessary to fit them for the profession of teaching In view of the pending legislation it may not be out of place to give some facts in regard to the present standing of the 'school the work it is doing and its future outlook for development and usefulness in the field which it is designed to cover After the opening the Normal School the facilities it afforded to the young people o- this northern section in a very short time attracted a very considerable attendance but the school soon had to face the fact that there was no provision made and no accommodations to be found in the particular of rooms and board for its students The accommodations in the original plant of buildings were entirely inadequate and such boarding places as could be found in the village were not only inconvenient in point of accessibility to the school but were far too few in number to answer the demands made by the increasing attendance at the school The result was that the school after reaching a fair opening attendance began to decline in numbers for lack of accommodations for its students and this continued until the opening of the new dormitory which took place in December 19C5 Work upon the dormitory building was begun after the State authorized the expenditure of an appropriation of $20000 for this purpose Owing to the rise in price of everything which enters into the construction of buildings the sum appropriated -by the State very naturally fell short of a suitable and adequate structure for the demands of the school Those in charge of the building instead of limiting the building to the amount appropriated saw fit ami very wisely so far as the interests of the public were concerned to adopt a plan for the new dormitory broad enough to provide for the present and immediate future needs of the institution In doing this the work had welfare of the school and the commu-the point where the original appropriation fell short and in doing this something like $5000 was iaised by an individual loan guaranteed by citizens of Presque Isle interested in the welfare of the schol and the community whose interests it has been established to serve The result of this public spirited effort has been the construction of a building adequate to the present needs of the school creditable to the State and the county in which it is located and so arranged as regards plan that future growth of the institution in point of attendance can be provided for as occasion may require The dormitory as now built and operated so far as its plan of construction and arrangements are concerned will compare very favorably with any similar building in the State sIn its exterior design and appearance the building is handsome in its proportions and conveys an idea of stability and of entire harmony with the purpose for which it wras designed So far as its interior plan is concerned it is not surpassed by any public edifice in the county either in attractiveness or convenience The ground floor is divided into a spacious hall reception room dining room serving room pantry all equipped in the latest approved fashion room suite lavatories and minor apartments The second and third floors are taken up with teachers and rooms the art room lavatories and bath accommodations the latter being ample in number and equipped with every modern convenience The fourth story is at the present time unfinished but it affords spaee for quite a number of additional rooms as they may be needed The view from this part of the building is fine in fact its location is admirable and elicits much favorable comment upon the part of visitors The building throughout is equipped with fire apparatus and its basement is divided and sub-divided into engine room laundry cold storage etc A trunk lift runs from cellar to attic and is found a great convenience The establishment of this institution in our midst was a great movement of progress for the town and whoever inspects the plant and notes of the strong indications of prosperity cannot but feel assured of its future growth and continued prosperity Nothing more firmly speaks for the enterprise of a town than its schools and in this particular Presque Isle has Just cause to feel proud No town of Its size can make a better showing At present there is an attendance of some fifty Normal pupils and about eighty in the training department Prof Irving Bragg the principle is proving himself a man fully capable of the requirements of his responsible position and is ably assisted by as good end efficient
