the wiling of. the pedagogues. Instead
ol ships going oat laden with men and
inanitions of war, and returning with
do-eased, dead and dying soldiers, wr
are now sending out ships laden with
the emissaries of edocation. The last
government transport which left hre
carried five hundred teachers, male and
female. Whatever mar be thought of
of our Philippine policy, the policy of
eJucation can only meet with cordial
commendation. But there is one phase
of the pedagogic question which the
government evidently baa not considered.
It it the moonlight question. It is the
marriage question. If the government
wishes to keep the teachers devoted to
their pedagogic duties it bad better ship
the tiro eexea in separate tranporta.
The hut one sailed from here about the
full of the moon, and from here to Hono
lulu love't ravages among the male
pedagogues are said to have been fright
ful. In fact, some particularly amorous
pedagogues implored the transport
captain to marry them on the spot or
rather on the high seas. But the phleg
matic tkipper bade them "wait till they
get to Honolulu." It is probable that

Oregon's wheat crop will be larger
than that of last year. There U a slight
decrease in the yield of Columbia river

The price wat not made public, but is

The truth should hurt no one, but the

and tries to euppress it. The county
printing proportion is an old one but we
wish to ay a faw words more on the sub

the Board to ask for bids and the
Courier-Herald has been howling for the
Board to stand on their platform. In

Board and tried to get the printing with
out bids being asked for, or without any
one else knowing anything about it, but
was told by the Board that bids would

Courier-Herald man failed to meet fair
and straight competition and did not

for bids on a proposition that allowed of

that the net indebtedness ot tbe county

This Yoong Men's Christian Associ
ation hat determent to conduct its own
night school during the coming winter, j
A (acuity of competent and experienced
instructors wili be secured. Tbe aim ot
tbit school is to give the men who work
during the day a thoroagh knowledge ot
any subject taken and thus furnish them
with a practical evocation. This school
will open about Ortolier 1, and will be
known as the Evening College. Classes
will be formed in the following subject.
Bookkeeping, commercial law, commer
cial correspondence, penmanship, ele
nienUrr arithmetic, advanced arith
metic, Englifh grammar, reading and
spelling, civil government, and social
economics. Arrangement have already
been made where'iy niein'oers o( the
Association winding to take a course in
mechanical drawing or electrical engi
neering may join the clashes in the Port
land Association under the same condi
tions by which the Portland members
j in them.
The first step in entering any ot these
clashes is to become a member of the
Association (iniation fee 11.00; dues, 5
a year), then pay the claos fee whicn
will be announced laU-r. There will be
no examination on enti-ring, but during
the year two eliminations will be given;
one jut before the Christmas holidays,
the other at the end of the term, April
Tbe classes will meet twice each week ;
some of tteui on Monday and Thursday
evenings, the oiliers on Tuesday and
Friday evening. There are a large
number of men in Oregon City who will
probably take advantage of the oppor
tunities offered in the Evening College.
In American associations from Oct. 1,
18W to April 1, 1900, three hundred and
twenty-evening schools were conducted.
The student in these schools numbered
2-1,975 above sixteen years of age and
1,927 juniors. Oregon City with its
hundreds of young men ought to have a
very strong evening college.
The contract for improving the Y. M.
C. A. building has been awardod to C.F.
Baker, of this city, bin bid being the low
est. He will commence work immedi
ately so that the building can be com
pleted by September 15, which is the
time set for the opening.
Work on the upper portion of the
building will be started firt. The ceil
ing requires repapering, new doors put
in and partitioning of the walls. Ar
rangements are under way to supply the
Association with 60 to 100 first-class
lockers for the accommodation of the
members, and those who take part in
the class work during the winter season

"There is no limit to the capacity of
the W. W. Kimball Company, as a piano
manufacturer," says the New York
Musical Courier. "Every onu will ad
mit that. The capacity ruw in iury
direction. There is no limit to (m-tory
capacity ; no limit to the capacity to air
sorb every excellent idea in piano struc
ture; no limit to the capital necessary to
gel the greatest experts and specialists,
and no limit to secure the very linost
material and put it together in the very
best style. That all mutt bo admitted."
"It the piano people desire to sue w hat

we advise them to look at the several
new designs and style of Kimball up-

tirely outside o( the ordinary character
of piano case-work. The finish is lim
ply exquisite. "

"Then try the pianos; test them
severely. Go through the questions ol
dip, o( repeat and o( sympathy of touch.
All these will be found delightful for
pianists, and the tone is rich, resonant
and refined. The Kimball piano of the
present day must be viewed as one of
the greatest successes In recent piano
"Of course, with this piano and the
millions behind it, and the brains and
the energy and the knowledge ot the
business, and the condition of the piano
trade to aid it, there Is no difficulty In
