"Dewey's cotillon" is the latest
fashionable dance in New York.
If it isn't misnamed it probably is
too lively to be danced with coin-fort.
Mrs. Leslie Carter, who has
failed for $64,000, with $200 assets,
may or may not be elevating the
stage, but she certainly has elevated
finance to the level of the fine arts.
This calls to mind the story ' the
Irishman told on himself which
was in substance that he owed one
hundred thousand dollars and that
it took a good man to do that and
the Irishman was right. It is pretty
nearly as easy a task to make that
amount of money as it is to owe it.
It used to be said the longest
pole got the most persimmons, but
it also holds good that the biggest
poll gets the most plums. In this
connection it would not be untimely
to say that Secretary of State Kin
caid got all the plums there were
in his office during bis occupancy
thereof. If reports be true, and
there have been some broad asser
tions made, Mr. Kincaid is surely
a man who shoots with a large bore
gun. ' It has been said that $25,000
would not be too large a figure

I might pile Ossa upon Pelion in the
way 01 descriptions of gray eyes culled
from fiction. There is, however, one
type of gray eyes whose appearance in
itory I have not yet noted, says
Nina R. Allen in Lipplncott's.
We have had gray eyes whidh "re
sembled nothing so much as moss
agates;" sea-gray eyes are not un
zommon. Amelie Hives has bestowed
upon Ilva, in "The Witness of the
Sun," great violet-gray eyes, "like rain
washed amethystsi" while Mr. Paul
Leicester Ford has recently introduced
as to a pair of slate-colored eyes.
But, at the present writing, I have
ret to meet with the golden-gray eyes
in fiction. They are to be found, how
sver, In nature, the most luminous of
11 eyes, I think, the iris about the
sdge a soft old-gold or golden brown,
yradually melting toward the pupil
.nto a worm gray. This lovely color
I have seen in the eyes of a. dog and
it a child the eyes of tie dog wist
ful, appealing, pathetic with unutter
ible things, the child's speaking of a
loul as yet undarkened by shades of
the prison house, and-splendid with the
3ght that never was on sea or land.
To the novelist desiring something
new In eyes, I would respectfully rec
ommend the golden-gray.
There Is Trouble In Our Camp.
Last week this paper said in substance
that Hie people of East Medford wanted
to get inside the incorporate limits of
Medford, and in almost the same line
we admitted that we didn t know
whether thev did or not, but that
people on this side would like to have
them with us. This little item seem
to have created quite a flurry of excite'
ment among Eas j Side people, and there
was an intimation scattered around to
the effect that we had perpetrated
gross error in so much of the item as
concerned the East siders. The Mail
did not think those people would take
tne item seriously, but the followinz.
signed by "Many Citizens," would seem
to indicate differently:
"The editor of The Mail has kindly
informed his 2000 readers of our desire
to squeeze into Medford, This is not to
inform him, because he knows, but his

The Northwestern Railway company
has begun grading for the road to the
Seven Devils county. It starts from
Huntington, Or., and follows the Snake

miles. . For the first ten miles there will
be some tunneling and rock work, but
after that the work will be easy.

should bo kept in mind: "It Is tho re
quest of tho state board of education
that till applicants for stato papers
make their applications to the statu
board ot education at the time of their

would work a great hui tlshiii to thu an

practicable to call it in session every

is a rcnsonahle request and should be
heeded. Thu board meets the tlrst
Monday lu January and July.
The patrons and vouuir neoule ot Con
trul Point are rltrlit to the front when
anything educational is in their midst.
This was fully demonstrated by their
attendance at the local institute last
week. The attendance in the forenoon
was excellent and in the afternoon It
was necessary to bring in every availa
ble seat and then standing room became
precious. It Is nleasin? to note the
growing interest in these local meet
ings. There WHS not a nonrlv nrnnupnH

iNo matter wnat topic Kllen Uursell pre
sents she does it in an interesting and
logical manner. Her paper on "The
Recitation" was replete with timely
and practical suggestions. This sub
ject receives too little attention from
many teachers. Some teachers will do
more with a recitation in fifteen min
utes tbau others will in thirty minutes.
What is the reason? We would suggest
that every teacher who has not a good
work on "Methods in Recitation." se
cure a copy of "The Method of the Rec
