It is stated that the teachers of this
county who were undergoing examina
tion for certificates were exceedingly
gratified on Thursday morning when they
discovered in the Oregonian a full list of
the question for examination in six of

more acceptable to them was the fact
that they had not written up a
set of those printed.

Both the electric omnibus and tho
electrical parcels van have been run
ning in the streets of London for several
weeks and have atjrac'ed a great deal ol
attention. They Toll along steadily mid

mass of cabs, omnibuses and trucks with
a nicety that excites general admiration.

wheels to w hich the power la applied.
The batteries weigh about 1H00 pounds
each. The 'bus itself weighs about two
and one-ipiarter tons, and when fully
loaded with passengers it is calculated
to weigh in all a little over six tons. In
the estimates which the inventor has
prepared for the company formed to
operate a line of these omnibuses, it is
stated that the cost of 0ertln would
be less than six cents r car mile. The
present cost of operating such an omni
bus by horso traction Is sUted to le

make an average of 580 miles per week
