by the eight grade class, algebra, geom
etery, philosophy, rhetoric, drawing and
book-keeping and such is the thorough
ness with which their work is done that
graduates from this school have no dif
ficulty at all in entering the different
collegesof the stale. In fact the college
faculties rank the Parkplnce Gladstone
School equal to the best city schools in
the state. A special feature of Prof.
Gray's work is that be strives to make
the education of the graduates from his
school as practical as possible, so that
when they go out into life they will be
equipped for actual business, and not
find half of thoir education a useless ac
complishment. The Enterprise can say
without flattery or a show of partiality,
that the Parkplace-Gladstone high
school has a greater proportion of unusu
ally bright and studious boys and girls
than any other school in the county, and
this statement is bourne out by teachers
who have visited this school. These
boys and girls improve every moment
of their time and are not attending
school for the fun to be had, or because
it is the wish of their parents, but give
evidence that they have an object in
lite to work for and prepare to be able to
fill tbeir alloted stations in a manner
that will bring to them both success and
While this school has none of the rigi
dity of military discipline, yet the order
in all the rooms is all that the strictest
disciplinarian could desire. There ap
pears to be a perfect unison of action
among the teachers, and between the
teachers and their pupils there is a
harmony and mutual interest that
effectually precludes the possibilities of
anv disorder, or inattention to their
studies on the part of the scholars. The
monthly reports Bhow that the cases of
punishment are few and far between.
The dismissal and fire drills are as
perfect as in any school in the state.
Promptly at the tap of the bell for dis
missal, the monitors open the doors and
take their places in the halls and the
scholars put away their books and place
their desks in order and at the second
tap march to the cloak rooms and put
their wraps on and return to the school
rooms, remaining standing until the
third tap of the bell when they march
in columns of twos into the balls and
out of tha building, keeping perfect step
to the beat of a bass and snare drum.
In the fire drill practice the 2'JO odd
scholars have beeu marched out of the
building in a minute and a half after the
alarm was given, and this without pre
vious warning, the alarm being given by
members of the school board to te3t the
efficiency of the drill.
The school hits a library of 150 vol
umes of well selected books and is adding
to the list each month. The scholars are
now making an effort to procure an

Much of the success of the Parplace
Oladaione school is due to the school
board of this district, which is composed
of C. II. Dauchy, chairman, Capt J. T.
Apperson and Capt. W. H. Smith, with
H. T. Sladen, clerk. This board, instead
of making one or two prefunctory visit
to the school during the year, has exer
cised a close watch over the affairs of the
school and thediHtnctand have sustained
and heartily seconded the teacher in

In England they have not only good

the worst enemy of Rood roads. Under
a careless system of maintenance and
repair water will destroy road faster
than ceaaeles, heavy t raffia Knowing
the work of water on roads, the high

washed and gullied roads are unknown i

features. In the first place, there have
been good roads bnilt for a long series
of years. They are properly drained, in
spected daily at the least, and every lit
tle wear, a hole as large aa a filbert, is
promptly repaired and made as good as
the rest of the road. There is no chance
for a road to wear out It is ever new,
and its level and crown never vary.
That is what permits the horseless car

exert their greatest usefulness, and it is
all on the side of economy. New Lon

A rider who has hud much experience
over all sorts ot roads makes this sug
gestion: "I am firmly convinced that a
road inspector or superintendent of road
repairers should be required to make his
rounds on a bicycle. In no other way is
it possible for him to judge so accurate
ly of the condition of the roads. And
this applies to asphalt as well as mac
adam. It is the enstom, I believe, on
railroads for the inspection car to cany
a vessel containing paint or other color
ed matter, which slops over whenever
an uneven place in the track is passed,
and thus shows where repairs are neces
sary. I do not undertake to say that this
idoa conld be applied to onr macadamis
ed roads and asphalted streets, bnt there
is no doubt in my mind that a man on
a bicyole can form the most accurate es
timate of the need of repairs on the
roads he passes over. Of course, when
he enoounters a depression it is easy for
him to mark it some way, preliminary
to the making of such repair as may be
Want Better Boiula.
Many of the teamsters and farmers
throughout the region are talking of
forming an organization to adopt reso

which are to be used in compelling the
various supervisors to furnish better
roads. It is stated that many of the
roads are in a miserable condition.

a macadam road between Saratoga and

the route are in favor of it and agree to

grand jury in the sum of $500 each, in
default of which tbey went to jail. The
state was represented by Deputy Prose

Tbe hope of the officers that these ar
rests would give some clue to the numer
ous petty thetts that have occurred in
the Molalla country the past year was
only partially realised. They were not
allowed to hear each other's testimony,
and their stories flatly contridict each
other on the most essential points, and
even the testimony of Mrs. Schuix, who
was held as a witness for the examina
tion, was at vsrUnce with that of the
other two. Both Schuix and Dinnel dis
claim any knowledge of how the liquor
found under Schulz' bouse got there, each
accusing the other of baying put it there.

promises to bring out some interesting
phases in the case.
