Teachers Are Apt And Beady
(Continued from last week.)
Last Friday, the closing day of the
Clackamas Oounty Teachers' Institute,
was a day of intense interest. It
marked the closing of the most success
ful and best attended institute ever
held at Oregon City. Professor E. A.
Milner, who is very practical in his
methods of teaching, gave an excellent
lecture on participles. Professor J. C.
Zinser, who is very thorough in his
methods, discussed mathematical geog
raphy. Rev. E. 8. Bollinger gave an
excellent lecture on "What the Teacher
Jhould Know to Make Good Citizens."
In the afternoon State Superintendent
Ackerman explained the manual course
-of studies, and conducted a question
box in the interest of changes in the
school law. Mrs. J. H. Strickler gave
an interesting talk on teaching music to
primary classes. The musical program
consisted of a piano solo by Miss Veda
Williams, a vocal solo by Miss Hazel
Pilsbury with Mrs. Mina Harper as accompanist.
One hundred and seventy teachers
were enrolled as in attendance at the
instilue, and, of course, Superiutendeut
Bowland feels justly gratified.
Mrs. H.B. Rinearson made an excel
lent institute secretary, and was care
ful and painstaking in her work. She
not only took pains to have the names
recorded correctly, but took down the
numbers of the districts, where the
teachers had secured schools.
Below is given' additional names of
teachers, who attended the institute,
and corrections as to schools secured.

Discriminates Ayalmt Oregon.
The Telegram continues to rub it In
oft Oregon City people, and the way io
which some of them insist on being bit
ten is a caution. For the past two
weeks, not a word of Oregon City news
has been printed in the Portland edi
tion of the Telegram. The space filled
by local news in the Oregon City edi
tion is filled up with news from other
towns in the big Portland edition. But
anything is good enough for the back
woods denizens of Oregon City, Lone
interviews with prominent citizens and
business men, and the doings of our big
teachers' institute are not good enough
to publish to the outside world. They
are all right for the limited population
in Oregon t'tty.
But the reporter is not to blame for
this. He does his level best, and works
hard to give Oregon City affairs good
write-ups. It is the head manage
ment that discriminates agalnBt Oregon
City, and when some of our people
think they are getting advertised abroad,
they are fooled.
