is a subject that most people are
more or less interested in, and as
tho bonds have carried there are
things thnt should' be taken care
of, one of which is that tho la
borers should not bo employed

American labor should bo given

be some method devised where

says that the road is only finish

value to the farmers. Multnomah
county should prevent anything
of a like nature occurring upon
the roads in this county. Most
people would sooner pny a little

Tho system of teaching child

In 1885 John H. Thiry. a native

Long Island: ho trained tho
teachers to enjoy tho philan
thropy of helping the children
to earn, save and bank their
small amounts of money. Ho
explained to the bankers that by
caring for the children's savings
they would later bo handling
larger sums, deposited by these

Ponular interest was aroused
and by 1891 tho movement had
reached such a high tide that it
was a subject of discussion at
the first triennial meeting of the

to the number of voters, that is
estimated in different ways.
Somo say that since the ladies

It has been stntcd that parties
wno contempinto having electric
work done can savo 30 per cent
by having same done beforo tho
two cities merge. This state
mont is misleading. The city of
I'ortinnd has adopted tho Na
tional Electric code rules and re
quirements governing the instul
lation of electric wiring nnd ap
paratus. Tho Underwriters' Equitnblo
uating ifurenu has adopted the
sumo codo as their standard; in
rncl all tho installations of elec
trie wiring and apparatus any
where in tho United States arc
governed by tho rules as sot
forth in this codo. This in
eludes St. Johns. Thoroforo if
Portland and St. Johns use the
same rules governing electric
wiring how can tho samo class
of installation bo 30 per cent
cheaper in St. Johns thnn in
Portand? Hero is tho reason:
In Portland thero nro inspectors
to see that tho codo is lived up
to, to seo that the proper ma
terial is put into tho job and is
properly installed, while in St.
Johns (excepting largo installa
tions which aro inspected by tho
Underwriters), unless the party
having work done understands
tho National Electric codo, any
thing goes, and in this way
enough material can bo "left
out" to reduce the price, no
doubt moro than 30 per cent.
This saving in price is in
versely in proportion to tho
grade of material used und the
amount of material left out as
well as tho quality of workman
ship. In fact the only difference
thero should be between the
price of electrical worx in St.
Johns nnd Portland is the amount
of inspection fee which rarely
runs over 50 cents on tho ordinary

And, although 1 cannot hear it,
I can seo it swiftly fall.
As you wundor through tho
Wherotho brooks and rivers
wiftly they will go a singing
At tho fall of evening glow.
Do you hear what thoy aro sing-
Do you hear the water fall.
Liko tho falls of Minnehaha
With its laughter over all?
God has mado all earth so beauti
With its music in the air.
Io is great and ho is powerful,
Ho can keep us in His caro.
Io will givo us His great bless
In our deeds of faith and love,
do not hear earth's sweetest
I will hear in heaven above.
