The exhibition and basket social
given by the teachers and school on
Saturday evening was a grand suc
cess. The program was excellent and
was rendered well, and without a
hitch. Miss Julia Weddle played tho
accompaniment for various school
songs and a solo with encodes to fill
in while scenes were being shinea
and Miss Scribner, of Willamette,
gave a violin solo, and afterwards
with Carl Ellegsen, played a violin
duet, all of which were very credit
ably performed. After the program,
Mr. W. W. H. Samson, amid deafen
lug cheers, mounted the rostrum and
proceeded first to give a somewhat
humorous sketch of his early life, by
which one could gather he was a very
smart boy, and young maa, although
handicapped by uncommon beauty,
and the remlnescence effected him so
that the perspiration flowed down
his face, and after frantically hunting
for his handkerchief he mopped his
face and rubbed bis eyes with his
coat tall and having got the crowd
Into good humor, he told them the
sale of the baskets was to go towards

who gave-$5.00 for a basket. The
bidding was lively. The baskets were
beautiful. A few sold as high as
(3.50 or $4.00, but none came up to
the required $5, so we shall hear no
wedding bells this week. The whole
was a "howling success" In more
ways than one. $77.75 waa realized
from the baskets. Those In the back
part of the room made such a noise
by talking, whistles, and cat-calls, that
those in the fore-part of the room
could hardly hear the auctioneer. The
directors ought to take It upon them
selves to assist the teachers in keep
ing order. The most of the disturb

serve to keep their too exuberant

Good Cough Medicine for Children.
The season for coughs and colds
Is now at hand and too much care
cannot be used to protect the children.
A child Is much more likely to con
tract diphtheria or scarlet fever when
he has a cold. The quicker you cure
bis cold the less the risk. Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy Is the sole re
liance of many mothers, and few of
thore who have tried It are willing to
use any other. Mrs. F. F. Starcher,
of Ripley, West Virginia, says: "I
have never used anything other than
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for my
children, and It hag always given good
satisfaction." This remedy contains
no opium or other narcotic and may
be given as confidently to the child
as to the adult. For sale by Huntley
