Neglect of the Flag.
Several dayn ago a teacher lu an
Eastern nchool wan retjuented by the
parcntn of a nutulier of Italian child
ren to teach them how to nalute the
American flag. The teacher was
much embarranned and confenned
that thin wan not a part of our edu
cational HVHtem and that although
there wan a form of wilutatlon for
nuch purponeR, he did not know what
It wan. The tuntter was referred to
memlier of the nchool board, and
he didn't know. Then a nyntem of
Inquiry wan ntarted and It wan din-
covered that the proper method of
nalutlug the flag In nchoola In to
have the children repeat thin Heiiteuce
they ntand facing the flag: "1
pledge allegiance to my flag and to
the republic for which It ntandu one
nation. Indivisible, with liberty and
Juntlce to all."
It would be Interesting, but per-
hapn deprennlng to patrlotlnm, to
learn how many public nchool teach-
em in tinn country know notmug oi
thin salutation and make no attempt
to put It Into practice. We boat
that the American flag float from
our public nchool buildings, but It
nlgnlllcance In neldom IniprenmM upon
the rlnlug generation of nchool child
ren. While other imttonn safeguard
the Hncrednenn of their banners, the
American people hold Itn obligation
lightly. The national emblem himliecn
lebaned an an advertlnlng medium;
It In burleMipied upon the stage and
oH'tily Insulted by enemies of the re
public. But no one In authority ap
pears to conceive It any part of bin
public duty to Insist that the Ameri
can flag be held In proper respect.
Thin In the day of theorlen and rr
formera who neek to change tie
existing order of things. The"muck-
raker" In abroad In the land to ex
pose and demoralize without offer
Ing anything to take the place of the
thing condemned. The tendency la
toward anarchy, and anyone who
stands patriotically against this sort
of thing In denounced an n "reaction
ary." But there must lie a return to
the faith of our fathers, which faith
wnn embodied In veneration of the
flag an nymhollng things American.
There In no Isptter place to begin
than In public schools. It tuny be a
legitimate exercise of "personal liber
ty" for demagogue to Jeer at the
flag, but the children should be
taught that It means something to
them. Because of noineone'n venera
tion for the flag the children of Amer
ica today are enjoying the privileges
of free and universal education.
They are no longer compelled to
aweat lit shops and factorlen or to
lie driven like cattle la the field.
They have homes and protection
from oppression; they hate full op
portunities to Is'come ndeeiidel)t
citizens. To have the school child
ren dally pledge their allegiance to
the slam and si ripen In only proper
recognition of the blennlngn which
that flag has conferred upon them.
The above article was read by nd
Jutant lil vt lie to the memliem of
Cm n by Post and Canity Belief Corps
and Its publication In the local pa
pers was recommended. The Pont
and Corpn alno urged that the board
of education should lunlnt that a
color guard should lie appointed to
attend to the raining and lowering
of the flag and that teacher should
lead la the salute.
The patriotic Inntructorof the Post
and Kellef Corpn will gladly assist
the teachers and color guard In the
performance of thin patriotic duty.

OLD TIMER SAYS RAIN
IS G00DF0R APPLES
Hood Blver, Ore., December 9, 1909.
It wan with a smile that we no
ticed your article, from Stelnhardt &
Kelly stating that bad reports bad
been circulated In New York, that
rain had Injured the keeping quali
ties of Hood Klver's apples.
We would not like to go on record
an positively stating as such might
not be a fact.
But lu primitive times, we used
never to pick our apples, until after
a good rain. It wan found on fact
and observation that the rain re
duced the summer beat, arrested
fermentation, and so prolonged the
qualities of the fruit.
You know the U. S. government
Induced the orange growers, to re
duce the temperature of the orange
by placing the oranges In an strong
a cold storage an they can stand be
fore shipping, even though In Iced
cars and theretty making orange
growing now a success, while before
was somewhat of a failure, so It
proved to us of early horticulture In
the 70s and 80n, that rain was a cdoI
Ing anti-fermentation process to the
Any one knows an apple found
under the leaves In winter will have
kept longer than had It lain out In
lu summer heat. So to niv observa
tion and way of thinking thone who
try to make buncome out of ratu on
apples, "are not wine In this day and
generation", but are simply talk
ing of tint they know not of.
This letter in open to criticism and
reply if there Is any due.

SHELLEY FLITTING BUT
TAKES TIME TO BOOST
Carson, Wash , Oecemlier 11, 1909.
Your paper comes to us like a let
ter from home, ami In very welcome.
This week It wan eseclally attrac
tive by Its big headlines under which
we note so many sales of orchard
lauds at good prices. In looking I
over the real estate tannfers I note j
sales at $I,uoo per acre that 7 years
ago the same laud sold for one tenth
that figure. Since 1902 1 have watched
closely the work of development of
of your valley and looking at It from
a nou-renldent standpoint I think I
appreciate more fully than do your
own people the rapid strides the
town and valley are making. It has
been truly said that Hood River
stands In a class of Its own. And It
requires no prophetic finger to point
to a time In the near future when
land values on account of their rev
enue producing qualities will soar to
a point In prices little dreamed of
now by your most sanguine boomer.
The price of property Is generally
fixed by Its producing power. This
principle applied to Hood River will
soon give It the record on land prices
sucn as it uow holds on apples, "to
wit", the top price In the world.
The birds take wings and go south
ward at the approach of winter.
And why not? We, wife aud I, are
a little late this year. But on Mon
day, the 13th, we plan to start on
our annual trip to southern California.
I received a letter today from Geo.
T. Prather who, with hln family, In

A New Idea in Bulletins
Dean J. A. Bexell of the School of
Commerce of the Oregon Agricultural
College has published a bulletin on
"Business Methods for the Farm,"
which in attracting widespread at
tention and very favorable comment
from practical farmers and authori
ties on farm life. The bulletin pre
sents In a clear and simple manner
systems of bookkeeping nnd account
ing which will enable the farmer to
keep a definite and helpful record of
hln business. It meets a long felt
need In farm management. The
pamphlets will lie sent to any resi
dent of the state upon request.
