except the Aoerican, John Wilde,
alias Howie or Harvie, have been set
free. Wilde was arrested by tbe Jap
anese at Kobe aboard the French steamer

and bonne conferees on the bill extend
ing the time for making income-tax re
turns, today reached an agreement on the
amendment made to the bill in the sen

by the hotife with a modification, making
it read as follows :
"In computing incomes under said act,

premiums and ordinary repairs shall be
The second amendment, providing
against double payment on amounts, re

exempting such dividends even in cases

by the coperation, was agreed to with
some verbal amendments. The senate
conferees receded fronc the third amend
ment exempting taxpayers from answer
ing any inquires not specially provided
for in the act, am) it was stricken out.
London, Fob. 18. The Queen arrived
in London this afternoon. She had re
quested that the strictest privacy be ob
served in her reception and at Victoria
station she was kept in seclusion so abso
lutely that empty trains were aligned
along the platform so persons on the
other platform could not see her alight.
The reason for this extraordinary privacy
was that rheumatism in her joints had
so increased that the queen was unable
to walk. She was assisted from her car
and down an inclined plane to the
platform, where she was placed in a
chair and borne to her carriage. Her"
dislike of observation was also evidenced
by the fact hat a detachment of life
guards completely surrounded her car
riage as she was driven to Buckingham
palace. In spite of all this the queen
was heartily cheered as she left the
station and as she passed along the route.
A True Benefaotor.

of the fund is now 1,140,000. Owing

New Yohk, Feb. It). Fremont P.
Peck, first lieutenant of the ordnance
corps, wu almost instantly killed on the
proving grounds at Handy Hook this
afternoon by the bursting of the breech
of a Hotchkiss gun.
The tent of a 4 7-10 inch Hotchkiss
rapid firing gun was under way, and two
rounds with fixed ammunition had been
successfully fired by Peck. When the
third round was fired, the breech of the
gun bursted and fragments struck Peck,
causing injuries which resulted in his
death in few minutes.
8eargeant John Thorp was slightly in
jured, but tbe others present, among
whom were Captain Heath, command
ing officer of the proving grounds, and
Major Phipps, president of the ordnance
board, escaped unhurt.
There were many narrow escapes,
however, as fiagments of the breech
were sent in all directions. Tbe breech
block, after striking several obstructions,
landed about 100 yards lo the rear.

Canemah, Feb. 19. Thinking that
your readers are desirous of hearing from

obscure, I send you a few items from

It was discovered on entering the
church last Sunday afternoon that the
organ had been broken. It is supposed
to have been done bj " hoodlums" who
entered the building through the win
dows. The debate held last Friday night at
the school house by N. Stupp was appre
ciated by the pupils of the advanced de
partment of the Canemah public school,
by whom the arguments were delivered.
The question discussed was, " Resolved,
That one will learn more by travel and
observation than by study and reading."
It was decided in favor of tbe negative
by two of the three judges Mr. Wm.
Hedges aud Mrs. Clark Ganong.
School will close here Friday, March
1, when the retiring principal, N. Stupp,
will leave for Clatsop county, where he
will engage in school work. He has
been very successful here. At a meeting
of the school board last night, Mr. E.
C. Hackett was employed as his suc
cessor. Miss Chase, the primary teacher,
has given satisfactory service ; she is an
intelligent young lady, and there seems
to be no reason why she sbonld cot be
retained. C. J. S.

TKACHEKS I HAVE SEKN.
The various pedagogical publications
and instructors in institutes usually have
a great deal to say about "the lazy, care
less pupil" and what to, do with him.
Does it ever occur to the teachers that
often, very often, there is laziness to be
found on the rostrum as well as at the
desks? Is not the adage true, "active
teacher, active school? Is it more than
half true? "lazy teacher, lazy school"?
Yea, verily, in all sincerity it may be
said that the teacher is known by his
pupils and bis work by their work.
A certain college professor under whom
it was my misfortune to sit, nsed to take
bis position each morning in a revolving
chair clos to his dek and very close to
the blackboard. With his book open
before him, and his arms spread out on
his desk he would sit, tl.e very personifi
cation of laziness, while the recitation
progressed. (I almost said retrogressed)
Whenever it came very necessary to ex
plain a point he would whirl around on
his revolving chair, (his lens wound
aroun 1 tbe support of the same) and
picking up a piece of crayon, write fn
slovenly character what he desired lo
explain. That portion of the blackboard
immediately behind him soon became
covered with 'fsturmian functions" etc.,
and rather than reach for an eraser, be
would employ his coat sleeve for that to
clean off the chalk marks. In an entire
year's work nnder him I never saw him
stand once, or exhibit any enthusiasm
or energy. Needless to say that after
one year his place was snpplied by an
other and be disappeared forever from
the profession of teaching.
A district school teacher in Minnesota,
whose school I once visited, was a vigor
ous chewer of tobacco! He sat with his
chair tipped back against the wall and
nsed a knot-bole in the door as a cugpi
dore! He ran for county superintendent
of schools but was defeated, fortunately.
A teacher in New York was hearing a
lesson on the barometer. ''Did you ever
see a barometer?" she said, "There is
one np in the eare yonder," said tbe
teacher, "some day we will get it out
and look at it."
"I don't like to teach botany" said a
teacher i i a Pennsylvania high school,
"it is too much bother clearing up after
a class has been analyzing a plant."
Let every teacher dispel such laziness.
How if you enter upon your work with
zeal, will the faces brighten as they tarn -toward
yours ! This is tbe,present reward ;
there are others that will follow.

Public Installation of OfBeer and Banqnet by
Grantert Valentine Party.
Needy, Feb. 19. The Valentine party
given in Liberty hall on the evening of
the 14th was well attended. An enjoya
ble time was bad by all present. The
particular event of the evening was the
distribution of the valentines which were
humorous and very amusing.
The Boise Grange which was organ
ized at Elliott Prairie was moved to this
place on Monday the 18th for the pur
pose of having a more extensive field to
operate in. Tbey held their first meeting
in Liberty hall and invited their friends
to joiu them in witnessing the public in
stallation of officers and partake of a
bountiful luncheon which the thoughtful
sisters had provided . Tne officers were
installed by Mr. Vorhees of Woodburn,
who read the installation ceremonies of
the order. As far as we remember the
installed officers were as follows : Master,
G. H. Bobbins; Overseer, R. Graham;
Assistant Steward, Mrs. G. II. Robbins;
Lady Assistant Steward. Mrs. Gains;
Lecturer, M. Todd; Chaplain, Mrs.
Todd ; Treasurer, M. Robbins ; Secretary,
H. J. Robbins; Pomona, Mrs. R. Gra
ham; Flora Roslyn Robbina; Ceres,
Mrs. L. Woodcock.
The installation was followed by ad
dresses by G. R. Stevenson of Oswego.
Mr. Voorhesof Woodburn and M. Todd.
Their remarks were devoted to system
atic farming and the subject of good
roads, which was very entertaining to
the farmers in general.
Tbe exercises were concluded by call
ing for applications for membership,
which resulted in seven applications.
We tbink that the moving of Boise
Grange to this place will result in build
ing up one of the strongest granges in
this state, as its object as a social order
has no equal among tbe farming class
and should meet with the approbation
of all farmers.
