It gives your local committee great
peasure to inform you we, have suc
ceeded i securing the title to the Lynn
school property, consisting of school j
building and euipment, the two-story
ottage and furnishings, all to be our
own for the purpose of promoting ed
ucation in our community. l
We think this will stimulate us to
take more interest in the cause of ed
ucation in our community We will
now feel more independent that we
wn and control the property. The
voters did themselves a credit last
spring when they vcted a special tax
without a dissenting vote, indicating
that you are unanimously in favor of
education with your money, as well as
in other ways.
In view of the above facts it is the
purpose of your committee to make
the school second to none of its class
in the State. The school . will open
the first Monday in September, with
pects to build an addition to the pres
ent building and have it completed
for the opning of school, if possible.
We have already forty new desks,
which arrived last week.

CROSS KEYS. "
Drama, Macedonia. -With a razor, a
spool of cotton thread and a small
portion of ether and chloroform Miss
Maria P. Kouroyen, an American Red
Cross nurse, performed a life-or-death
operation here as the result of which
and her other errands of mercy she
has come to be known as "the Amer
ican angel" by the homeless and starv
ing Greek refugees.
Born of Greek parents, Miss Kou
royen is a graduate nurse of the Mas

and cholera tread on each other's
heels, and where the refugees bury
their dead beneath the dirt floors of
their shell-shattered shacks' so that the
bread cards of the dead member of
their family shall not be taken up.
A Greek soldfer, one of whose legs
had been crushed, was brought to the
box car on a railroad siding, in which
Miss Kouroyen-was living. Something
had to be done for him at once. Miss
Kouroyen spent no time Jn talking.

Miss Kouroyen anesthetized hen pa

and chloroform, and performed an am

off" the arteries and veins.
Despite the prophecy of a local doc

live through the night Miss Kouroyen
some time later received a visit from
