who so promptly initiated the movement, and j
the good people of Towanda who so generous- j

KJf- IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL DIREC
TORS AND TAX PAVERS—Th<- fol

There is hut one time in the vear when di
rectors can adopt a new series of textbooks
for the schools under their charge, or change
old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
schools. Section 23, Act of M. yl. lxf>4, says:
'• That immediately after the annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and beferc the opening of the schools for the
ensuing term, there shall be a meeting of the
directors or controllers and teachers of each
district; at which meeting the directors or
controllers shall decide upon a scries of school
hooks, in the different branches to be taught
during the ensuing school year; which hooks,
and no other, shall he used in the schools of
the district during said period."
Such is the law, with this exception, that
hooks cannot now he changed more frcquent-
Iv than once in three years.
