A school district down in the IMas
Icet Valley, California, is having
groat difllcully In securing teachers
who will remnln In the school loimer
than one term. The reason is not thai
the bfK boys urn wilfully unrtilly, but
that the teachers have for seven sur
ceHslvo terms been so churiulnt; that
some one of (he "bin boys" have
promptly married the teacher at Hie
end of the pchool lerin. Thoso howii
"hlK boys" are alt the sons of Farmer
Plasket, for whom tho valley van
named, and now there are seven
young and charmlnK Alts. Flaskets
In that favored section. The directors
nro still In tumble because there Ih
tho eighth son of Farmer Flasket to
deal with. The superintendent of thnt
county H'ivs he n glad these yinim
Indies have found such nice hoims.
because marrhu'e is more honorable
than school hvirhltm nnv time.

Tho members of the Ladles Aux-,
Hilary to the Hoseburg Commercial
Club met in session Friday evening.
The most Important matter to" attract
the attention of the assembly was
that of considering the erection of
"rest cottage", in the city. The lad
ies were unanimous in the opinion
that such departure would result In
much good as It would provide
place of recreation for strangers who
chance to enter our gates. A com
mittee was appointed to Investigate
tuo proposition with a veiw to tak
ing immediate action toward Its ma
terialisation. Another matter dis
cussed was that of holding a "Sweet
Pea day during tho coming year.
The ladles have been promised about
200 packages of sweet peaH from the
government, the same to arrive here
about .January 1. The ladles also took
up tho matter-of endorsing the Red
CrosB Christmas stamps. These
stamps are now on sale nt tho Rose-
burg Book Store and can be secured
for the naklnc. The money derived
from tin sale of these stamps goes
into what Is known ns the consump
tive fund, such to be expended In an
effort to check the dreaded disease
which Is becoming prevalent In all
sections of the United States. The
meeting was of a social nature, the
foreiroing matters having been taken
up at a brief business session. From
appearances the ladles !ntond to carry
on uviir worK with oven greater en
ergy during the coming year than In
the past, believing as thev do that It
requires a united effort to attain sue
