A scholarly paper on "Nature Study"
was presented in a most pleasing man
ner by Mr. E. K. Lake, of the Oregon
State Agricultural College. That subject
is ot the most educational value that
tends to make a boy self-supporting, and
that lends to make him enjoy his sur
roundiDgs. Too much stress, the speaker
believed, had been placed on teaching
pupils how to do certain things, and not
enough independent thinking on the
part of pupils. In studying geography,
send the pupil ont into the fields, and
let them study the rivers, lakes, moun
tains, valleys, etc., therefrom. In teach
ing even spelling the child should be
made acquainted witb mother nature.
For instance, if we have the word bird,
talk about birds and arouse the chil
dren's interest in their little feathered
friend. Let us one and all cultivate a
friendship with the things about us,
such as animals, birds, insects, etc.

Bid will be opened In this city tomor
row a'ternoon for the work of establish
ing the proposed south end road. The
original cost of this ns roid, which will
afford another mitre direct entrance and
exit lo the city for many of ihe rural
resident' of the county, was estimated at
t4bO0 Under the modified plans of the
promoters, the work will not cost, it has
hen estimated, to exceed the sum of
f.'lODO. Of this amount there has I en
raised by individual subscription the
sum of f 1500. Added to Ibis the city has
appropriated $11100, by ordinance, to aid
in 'be wo'k, and it is understood that
the meuiliers of that body are dispos)!
to set aide an additional $1000 if the
contract can be performed for $.1000 or
less, so it will be seen that ample funds
have been provided to finish the road.
The proposed road will enter the city
on Third street. It has not yet been defi
nitely decided whether or not the road
way will pas beneath or over the road
bed of the Southern Pacific Company.
The course of the highway In thi re
spect depends largely on the aid the rail
road people lend to the scheme. At any
rate the course of the road will be out
Third street and across the tracks of the
railroad company ; thence southerly on
an 8 per cent grade lor 525 feet, and
thence on a uniform grade of 6 per cent
to the terminus. If the road Joe not
paaa beneath the roadbed of the railroad
company, tben it is proposed to reach
the railroad track by an approach 193
feet in length. It is es'imated that the
work of establishing the road will involve
the excavat ng of about (WOO cubic yards
of rock, etc., the building of a guard
rail 1(00 lineal feet in length, and a re
taining wall r. presenting 400 cubic
As stated In the foregoing paragraphs,
the estimated cost was 4i00, with a
completed roadway, but the specifica
tions call for a natural roadway, similar
to tbe one Ibat was provided for the
north-end road, and which lasted for
years, and this materiallr decreases the
expense of doing tbe work. Tbe under
standing that exists between the indi
v duals ahoare championing thecause
of the new road and the couniy, is to
the e fleet that the people of the city
must see that the proposed highway is
extended to the city limits, and then the
county agrees to extend and connect the
same with the county or New Era road
With ibis understanding it is reported
that tbe county has proceeded and
graded more than three-fourths of a
ini eof the road it has agreed to com
plete. The course of the thoroughfare
that it is proposed to construct, follows
very closely that of the olJ colonial road
that entered the ci'y from the same di
rection. The first effort to accomplish the build
ing of this rosd was made in 1S1M, and
has ben repeated annually ever . nee.
But never betoie has the movement re
ceived the subsiantial encouragement in
the form of liberal subscriptions that it
now has. Kelereuce to the tax rolls of
the county, state the committee that
made the canvass for the funds, will
show that t e subscribers to the fund 1 f
$1500 pay in the aggregate taxes to the
amount of $20,575. This amount repre
sents one-sixth of the total tax roll of
$120,000. The fact that the movement
then has the backing of many heavy
taxpayers, is used as an argument for
the building of the road without further
The advocates of tbe south-end road
contend that the building of the road
will be a positive advantage to many ol
the n ral population of the couuty, since
it will reduce the distance to be traveled
in reaching this city. Figuring from
tbe court house as a starting point, it is
claimed that the distance to New Era
by the hill road, made by actual meas
urement, is V,i miles; by the river road,
with heavy aradinL'g and three railroad
crossings, it is claimed that New Era is
5's miles distant, while by the new
grade the distance between tbe two
points, with a grade not exceening8 per
cent, is only bl-4 miles. Tbe advocates
of tbe new road insist that the proposed
route is one-fourth of a mile shorter than
the river road and fully two miles less
than the hill road, which is traveled by
majority of the people. It is claimed
in th.s connection that the distance to
Barlow, Canhy, Macksburg, Marquam,
Needy, and other points south will be
reduced four miles for the round trip, if
the new road is established. In addi
tion to shortening the distance to these
points, it is further nrged in sup
port of the claim that tbe improvement
will encourage the further development
of the south end of the county. It is
estimated that Ihe increase in the assess
able valuation of property that will be
benefited by tbe road will, in ten years.

Plurality of Help-male Resulted Fn-ni
a Lt tt-r Htailng That Mr. Jansen
5o. 1 Was Dead.
IfBns Jansen, a local woodchopir, hs
discovered himself lo be in a peculiar
position. The record if an Illinois)
cinnty and those ot Clackamas ennntjr
show that Jansen is the husband of two
wives and w hile he ocenpies this dual
relationship, he is n t sure that be t an
rely on either one of the women to love
and obey blin now that these complica
tions have arisen. '
Mr. Janseu i a ycn"ir nun and has
for some time been einuloved bv ihe pa
per mills in the capacity of woodehopper.
On January 7, lft'0, Mr. Jansen married
K trim a Moore in Oilman, Illinois. After
four years of married life Jansen long"
airain for the life of a sailor which he bad
followed prior 10 his marriage. Provis
ion was made for 1 lie board and accom
modation of the bride for a year and the
lad witb a longimr for a life on the ocean
deep, went to ew York and took pass
age on a vessel for Liverpool.
From New York be bad written hi
wife several letters, and hi first thought
when he reached Liverpool wa the p't
otlice. The letter that awaited the silor
wa not from the loving young wife and
filled with fond greetings. On the con
trary, it was a harbinger of grief to the
seaman, staling lhat the youog bride
had been called from earth, and that the
funeral had occurred some time past
The letter was from a Peter Johnson In
Gil man, and gave none of the particulars
of the death. Jansen wrote from Liver
pool, questioning Johnson abont the
matter, and when he returned to New
Yorktwo months later he found a sec
ond fetter confirming the report of he
first one received. A trip aronn Cape
Horn on the good ship Queen Victoria
brought Jansen to San Francisco, where
he feft the vessel and once more went
back to rural life in the Sacramento
Valley, where he remained nntil July
1002, when be came to Oregon Cirv and
entered tbe employ of the paper com
In the wood-camp where Jansen was
employed, there was a boarding bouse
conducted by an attractive grass widow.
whose acquaintance tbe ex-sailor funnii
quite agreeable. Relying on the infor- '
mation that lud been conveyed to bnu
by letter that hi first wife was dead.
Jansen at once began to negotiate further
in a matrimonial way. He was emi
nently successlul and found favor in the
eyes of tbe widow, Mr. Grace Sbeperd,
nee Hinton, who named tbe day and on
March 12 last the wedding occurred ami
the ensuing six week were full uf hap
piness to them both.
The receipt of a letter IsBt" Sunday
from Wife So. 1 however, put an end to
the relations cf Jansen aud wile No. 2
for the present at least.- A wood-chopper
brought the letter to Jansen from
the postorlice. The envelope bore tbe
postmarks of New York, Ixmdon, Sao
Francisco and many Sacramento valley
points. The communication was brief
but decidedly lo, the point. I. staled
that the first wife is still living and that
the letters Jansen had received to the
contrary we'e false and that if the sailor
boy wanted his spouse he should "come
and get her." '
Tbe erstwhile grass widow was con
founded by the contents of the letter apd
11 ixi n learning that tier husband of, but
six weeks was not divorced from tlie first
wife, she at once dissolved partnership.
Jansen left the first of the week for Gill- t
man, for the purpose, he claimed, of pro
curing a legal separation from the woman
be first married. When he has accom
plished this he expects to return to Ore
gon and again claim the widow if she
will accept him at that stage of the game.
Before leaving for Gillman, Jansen in
timated that it might be advisable for
"that man Johnson" to make himself
scarce about tbe time the indignant
wood chopper reaches that point. Jan
sen thinks he has bad "too much Johnson."
