Democrat's A dispatch from Seattle Hopes. slates that republican quarrels and the conflict ing ambitions of divers republican leaders have occupied the attectiou of state politicians for the past several months, to the exclusion of the democ racy and its hopes and fears. This is mainly due to the fact that the demo cratic party has not been washing its dirty linen in public like the republican organization. Nevertheless, the demo crats are active, and see in the division of the republican party a chance to suc ceed for themselves in the campaign of next year. Jamee F.

Smith, Millie Kruse, Anneita Gleason and Jeannette Fairclough, Oregon City. Mrs. G. M. Strange, principal of the Willsbnrg school, who was down on the forenoon program to tell .."How to Make the schoolroom Attractive, failed to put in an appearance, and a general dis cussion of the topic took place. Super intendent Zinser believed it the teach ers' duty to look her prettiest in the cchoolroom, and to be at all times an ex ample of neatness. Professor Gary called attention to the fact that the most successful teacher was the one who could control the boys. He found pic tures, books and papers a great help in making the schoolroom home-like for pupils. Miss Smith emphasized the broad influence of pictures in the school room. Alias Patty was a strong advo cate of the use of plant leaves in the schoolroom that the pupils took espec ial pride in this decorative work, where they gathered the leaves themselves. Mr. Jones gave some practical ideas on haw to prep ire autumn leaves for use in schools, and also suggested plans of starting a school library and how to in terest the pupils in the work. An elabuate dinner was served by the people of Harmony with the best the country afforded. , , AFTERNOON 8B88ION. At the opening of the afternoon s e sion the ilirmony -male quartet Bang "Harvest Lome," and responded to mm enthusiastic encore with another selec tion. Then followed some recitations and declamations and "A Mother's Prayer," by the male quartet. (This paper regrets that it was unable to se cure the names of the local talent par ticipating in tne aoove progiam ) The topic for the afternoon was "Some Elements of a Successful Scdool," discussed under separate heads. Miss Smith, principal of the Eastham school, ; gave an excellent dissertation on "The Teacher's Part " In part, Miss Smith said teachers were born, not made. No school or college education make a teacher. The teacher should become a power for good in the community by im pressing their personality on the pupil. Miss Smith closed by impressing the fact th.it it isn't so much what pupil get from books, but it is the moulding of character that is of primary importance. Superintendent Zinser took occasion to emphasize the strong poiuts brought out in Miss brmtti 's talk. Miss Florence Patty, of the West Or egon City school, presented "The pu ptl's Part." She said that pupils should be prompt, energetic, patient and industrious. They, also should be en thusiastic and strive to perform all du ties as a pleasure, and not as a task. "The Parent's Part." was presented by Miss Kathryn Casto, of the Milwau kie school, She advanced the idea that the parents should aid the teacher in every possible way, and let the teacher understand that her labors are appreci ated. The parents should not be chrouic faultfinders; neither should they nt any time sacrifice a child's character to a teachers' reputation. Superintendent Zinser spoke of mothers' clubs in connection with the subject, and would be glad to hear of thein in connection with every school. J. W. Fisher, principal of the Clack amas school, talked of the "Director's Part." He called attention to the fact that the di.ector's part was a most im portant one Tpe director should se lect the best teacher possible, but not at the lowest wages possible, the latter be ing false economy. They should direct and look after school property. August Kanne, odb of the directors of the Har mony sctiool district, followed with a few remarks. Mr. Kanne is a life mem ber of the library association. The superintendents fart,' was discussed by Professor If. T. Evans, of j Oswego, lie said the superintendent should have a close acquaintance with parentf, and should enlighten them as ! to their duiies to their respective j schools. Professor Gary spoke of the importance of the superintendent hav ing a strong personality. Superintend ent Zinser spoke of the additional work required in his office under the new Echool law. The usual boquets were thrown out by adopting resolutions thanking the Har mony people for their entertainment. Ara McLaughlin, principal of the Mil waukie school, gave a brief resume of the work of the afternoon: Other teachers not mentioned above that were in attendance, are as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Buck, Canemah ; Mr. and Mrs. Millard Hiatt, Willamette Falls; Miss Margaret Uuttridge, Os wego; Grace Robinson and Celia Thomson, Clackamas; Stella Sumner. November Magazines, Following the precedent of almost thirty Thanksgiving Days, Horace Vose, of Westerly Rhode Islaud, will send the prize turkey of all his flocks to grace the new presid 'nt's dinner table on Novem- Derzs.
