The high school board has purchased 2 acres of ground in the south part of the town from Mr. Thomas Simpson for a building site, the consideration being $620, payable in December next. The site is a most excellent one in every respect, and so far as can be learned, is generally approved of.
Plans of the building are now being prepared, and commenced without delay. The structure will cost in the neighbourhood of $4000, without fittings, and will be supplied with all the latest approved appliances for heating and ventilating. It is hoped to have it ready for occupancy next fall.
