The janitor of the Centre School building, Charles M. Batchelder, feels justly indignant that all his hard work to beautify the grounds go for naught because of the thoughtlessness of a few who attend the moving pictures Friday evenings and drive their autos across the lawn. At this time of year when the ground is soft the tires sink deeply into the sod and it is a very difficult matter to smooth up the lawn again. If those who see this notice will do their part in maintaining the beauty of the grounds and refrain from driving on the sod it will be much appreciated.

The bus service between Hampton and Exeter was taken over by the B. & M. this morning. The same time schedule will be maintained for the present.
