ELECTRICAL CLASS OFFERED

Bonner County District No. 82 announced plans for an adult course in electricity in Sandpoint. A course offered at North Idaho Junior College in Coeur d’Alene means two hours on the road and three hours in class two nights a week for 10 weeks of winter, so an effort was made to offer the same class in Sandpoint. The class must have eight students and General Telephone will provide four.

STEREOPTICON FOR HIGH SCHOOL

It is the custom of the Sandpoint high school graduating classes to give the school a memorial at graduation. The class of 1917 did not decide on their gift until after the opening of the present school year, when it was decided to buy a first class stereopticon. The machine is very simply made and is so arranged that not only slides may be used but images of opaque objects such as pictures may be thrown on the screen. The exact colors of the picture appear on the screen.

MALONEY DISAPPEARANCE A MYSTERY

Mystery surrounds the disappearance of John Maloney, who has not been seen since the burning of his property, the Palace hotel.

He was missed about the time the building was razed and as soon as the ruins were sufficiently cooled to permit searching, a crew of men set to work and carefully worked over every foot of the site. Not a vestige of his body could be found.
