How the Work Eaded-i-ClosinE Scene
in Philomath Pnblic School.'
Last Friday, March 25th, closed
the year's work for the - Philomath
public school, "and the day 'will' al
ways belremembered by the many
present as one of the most " enjoy
able in the history of Philomath's
public school work,. .It "was an all
day's treat for the patrons and
friends of the school and was indeed
a fitting close of a successful year's
work. . : ' . .
A part of the. morning was spent
in exchanging friendly greetings,
until the days' s work for ' ' teachers
and pupils commenced. Every
number oh the program was a sue
cess, as was also the bounteous
luncheon which had found its way
to the chool house from , every
point of the compass.: After din
ner the exercises were continued
and again reflected naught but
credit on our able corps of teachers,
To look upon the bright and
contented countenances of our boys
and girls was ' an inspiration, for
they betokened work well done.
and the happy willingness of each
to do his work and do it well show
ed the unity between teachers and
pupils in happy days gone by. -
This day closed Prof. Pratt's
work of four years in our . school.
As one always deeply interested in
the work of our public schools,
and noting the work from year to
year, we feel competent Jo assert
that never has there been .seen
greater unity of purpose nor . more
general good will than have exist
ed between Prof. Pratt . and his
pupils, and also his co-workers in
the school, during this entire time.
This closing day only emphasized
the fact thai this is the general
feeling and that Philomath people
appreciate his earnest labors among
Mrs. Pratt has had charge of the
primary grades the past two years
and the little folks are happy that-
they can continue their work under
her kind and skillful management,
even after they have had one "last
day" for she will teach a private
school in what has been known
as "Mrs. Pratt's room" these sev
The work of Prof, and Mrs.
Springer, teachers of the intermed
iate grades, rounds out the year's
success. The parts of the closing
day's entertainment furnished by
the pupils of their grades were es
pecially good an4 showed, cafeful
training, as well as patience and
perseverance fot both teachers and
pupils. ' v
We can wish our teachers noth
ing better than that they may be as
successful in the future as they
have been in the past.
A Treat Promised.
Homer Davenport is coming to
town, Saturday, April 9th, to give
a talk oh "The Power of a Car
toon," illustrated with sketches by
his clever pencil, made before ' the
audience. " The fact that Mr.; Dav
enport was born ' in ' Oregon and
that his early reputation was made
on this Coast will make " his ap
pearance here of s special interest.
Hundreds of people in Oregon and
California call ' him - Homer.x 'and
other thousands are -familiar with
his work and with the incidents of
his remarkable career ' His talks,
accompanied with his pictures, and
enriched with true Homeric anec
dote have a charm that 1 is unique
and compelling. Quiet old Silver
ton, Oregon, bestirred itself in some
mysterious way to furnish a verit
able Iliad of quaint humor and fas
cinating romance, which told in
Homer's captivating phrase, de
serves immortality. 1
In one of his lectures Mr. Dav
enport told how he had endeavored
year after year, to get exported
from Silverton with the butter and
eggs which that city sends forth in
to the world every day and how he
each time was returned though the
butter and eggs stayed. Then he
described his endeavor to draw ' a j
stove for the Oregonian advertising j
department and his narrow escape
lrom' involving the ; paper- in a
damage suit as the 1 result. Next
he related his visit to the Marquam
"Grand theatre many " years ago,
when he and his sister came to see
Clara Morris, and because they
neglected to provide1 themselves
with handkerchiefs, " caught cold
from bathing their feet in the tears
they shed. Mr. Davenport's easy,
natural st3'le of telling his stories
captivates his audiences from the
start, and he keeps the house in an
almost continual chuckle.
To the Voters of Eenton County:
Acceding to the wishes of a large
number 01 patrons and friends of our
public schools, I submit my name to the
voters of Benton county for the office of
county school superintendent.

Alsea Farmer, and Raral PJwmep .

- At one of the railroad stations - in
this city is enough wire for 15 miles
of telephone line together -withne-:
cessaryj insulators - and brackets,
and - seventeen , telephone instra-.
meats, and thereby hangs a tale.
The outfit is the property of the
Farmers" Mutual Telephone Com
pany, which is building a 'network
of lines in Alsea Valley Thestock-
holders are farmers of the vicinity,;
and the curious fact is that the val-1
ley is already well served with5 a
system of rural telephones, operated
and controlled by the Alsea telephone
company. Equally cunoUs is the fact
that the stockholders and offi
cers of tie Farmers Mutual are al-i
most identical with the stockholders
and officers of the Alsea Company .'
The reason for the unusual condii
tion is that theTAlseans have gain
ed wisdom by their fexperiehce .in;
the telephone business, and thenew
Organization of the Farmers Mutual
is a move for future operations in
whichjthis wisdom is to bej embod-i
led. By the new plan the farmers
build and mantain their' own' lines
and own their own instruments.;
Each builds his portion, and when
it is completed and ready for opera'
tion, he turns it over to the company
The line built and equipped is all
the property the company : owns.
Each farmer, likewise, buys his own
phone, and this remains his'individ
ualproperty. The wire used in con
struction is No 14, land the phones
the best that can pe procured. The
line is to be maintained as an entire
ly independent system, and it is the
purpose ultimately to secure connec
tions with a Corvallis system. -The
officers of the Farmers Mu
tual are: president G T Vernon;
vice president J. E. Taylor, secre
tary Elsie Banton; treasurer, S. N.
Warfield. Executive committe:
Marion Hayden, L. G. Headrick
and M. G. Vernon. The four offi
cers and the executive committee
constitute the ' board of managers
which controls the operationslof the
company. The material at the local
station is shortly to be sent to Alsea
"hnd construction werk on the new
system will begin at once.

There is a little shed in the vi

waited for his man. , In about an
hour a- figure could be seen coming
up the track' from the direction
of Albany. The officer kept with
in the shadow of the shed as the
figure approached nearer and near-;
It was in the dusk of ' evening
when, alter approacning within a
hundred feet of the shed the sup
posed apOstle suddenly stopped.
The light hair was distinctly visible
and the general contour suggested
that the man on the track was the
sinning saint. His attitude gave
the impressjon that he was about
to turn around and take to his heels
Deputy Henderson left his shed
