District No. 2, of Northfield, closed the winter term last Friday. This scohol has been under the teaching of Miss Mae Cavanaugh and the excellent record she has raade speaks well for her teaching. The school carried off the first prize for the best trimined and decorated wagon at the county fair last fall, and tbe pnpils also won five first prizes in the educatioual exhibit, whioh speaks well for their work as, it was their first eutrance into such contests. During the past year the scholars and teacher with the assistauce of tbeinembers of the district who held them by attending the socials and entertanments arrauged, raised inoney enongh to purchase a library of 106 volumes. Such a thiug is almost, if not an absolute necessity in every school, but very few district schools are lucky enough to possess one. Every district, however. should have one to enable the pupils to supplement their school work by outside reading and to develop a liking for good literatura. Feb 14, St. Valentine's day, the school raised money enough to pnrchase a new organ. The organ was delivered a few weeks before the close of school. Of course. mnch of the credit for the work must be given to the scholars and the members of the district, but most of it is due to the careful, painstaking efforts of Miss Cavanaugh, who has been untiring in her labors for the best interests of the school. The district now has a school that it should certainly feel proud of.
