to buy at a big
saving here and

you just to come

If you are a stick

watchword we can
surely suit you in

During the two weeks prior to tnk

thoroughly soaked by heavy ruins
and uieltlujf snow, and If any Influx
l surface drainage were liable to
affect thin water It Hliould have de
veloped in this examination, because
t lie reservoirs had not lieeu emptied
for several mouths as is the custom
in the winter season.
Notwithstanding the exposures
above mentioned the report Is very
satisfactory and tu accord with sev.

petent bacteriologist during the past
two years.

ODELL
Mrs. Alice Poole, who has returned
home. Is doing ulcelv since having
undergone an operation a few days
ago lu Portland.
Odell will have a meat market lu
the near future. We need a barber
shop next.
While everyone Is having a word
or two on the subject of consolida
tion of high schools 1 too shall ex
press a thought on the subject. 1
wish only to euumerate some of the
points 1 think worth considering.
Ten grades can be taught successfully
in at least five of the districts. The
upper two grades of these ten will
hold some pupils In school In each
place who would drop out If they
had to go to town for these grades
The grades above the tenth requir
ing so much labratory apparatus
cau best le taught In one or two
complete high schools. The time re
quired to travel to and from Hood
Klver by those living lu the country
Is sutllcleut to learn from one to
three lessons dally; and until we get
an electric line, the moral and Im
moral must ride together in a closed
conveyance. The cost of transporta
tion will hire an extra teacher lu the
country. Consolidation Increases the
etticieucy of a system very material
ly but consolidation can be consoli
dation without taking all the high
school pupils from all the counties
to Portland or without taking all
grades above the eighth to Hood
Klver. 1 believe I am right In saying
that the tendency along educational
Hues today lu the eastern states is to
place the schools, of whatever kind,
as near the homes as It Is possible,
that all may have an equal oppor
tunity for a complete education.

A MONSTER WHALE.
On Way In Which It Rsssmblad a
Tiny Spsciss of Fish.
One winter some years ago a large
bale was killed near oua of the At
lantic seaports. Its carcass was taken
ashore, loaded on two flat cars aud
transported far Inland to cities where
a whale was a curiosttj that people
would pay to see. It was necessary, of
course, that the exhibitions should be
given lu uuheated halls, and as It was
a cold winter the whale kept In a fair
ly good state of preservation for a con
siderable u umber of weeks before It
became Imperative to close the amuse
ment season so far as that particular
cetuceau waa concerned. While It
was on exhibition lu Chicago a mer
chant from a little town In southern
Illinois, who happened to be in the city
on business, went to see it. When be
returned home he could talk of noth
tng else.
"You may think you've seen big Ash,"
he said, "but unless you've come across
a whule somewhere you haven't."
"Uow long was it, Jeff?" somebody
asked him.
"It was mighty close to ninety feet
ami about fifteen feet thick. It waa
the biggest thing I ever saw out of the
water that swims In the water."
"Well." said the vlllnge doctor, "you
didu t expect to And It a smelt, did
your'
"No." he answered hesitatingly, "but
It did. just a little."-Excbange.

FACE PATCHES.
Thty Became a Society Craze at One
Tim In England.
Plaster patches were Introduced In
England in the reign of Edward VL
by a foreign lady who In this manner
Ingeniously concealed a wen on her
neck. They became sucb a craze and
were curried to sucb exaggerated
lengths that they were dually lam
pooned out of sight The men, as well
as the women, stuck themselves over
with these beauty spots. No lady of
fashion considered her toilet complete
until she was equipped with ber little
box of patches cut In her favorite de
sign. If one happened to come off In
company she hurriedly replaced it
with a fresh one from the box.
At length patching In England went
so far that party spirit was symbo
lized by the position of the patches.
A letter In the paper on June 2, 1711.
tells of a visit to the Haymarket and
the discovery by the writer of three
classes of women In the boxes all dif
ferently patched. Upon inquiry he
discovered that those who patched on
the right side of the forehead were
Whigs and those who favored the left
were Tories, while those who patched
Indifferently on either side were a
neutral party, whose faces had not
yet declared themselves. London 8at-

A Lazy Rae.
A lazier man than the average Bur
man It would be extremly bard to
flud. When It is absolutely necessary
for bhu to work be generally bits upon
some method which will save him a lot
of exertion. If he wishes to cultivate
a ple e of ground be seta light to the
brushwood as a cheap, easy and effica
cious method of preparing the soil.
For two or three years be cultivates
that piece of land, aud then be seta
light to another sot allowing the Jun
gle to grow In the old place, which
will be ready for reburnlng when the
other ground wants a rest. Rice
growers dlsense with plows, turning
loose Instead a number of buffaloes,
which cut up the saturated soil with
their hoofs. When a Burma n has
earned a little money he Immediately
proceeds to Rx-ncl It all. for the Bur
mese bare no ambition to be rlcb and
never board; consequently there are
no large landowners, and. there being
no aristocracy, the people are as near
being on an equality as possible.
A Poser.
A vegetarian writer narrated In a
recent address a "poser" that his little
son had put to blm.
"My little boy." said the speaker,
"often turns away from bis lentils and
expresses a longing for chops and
roast beef.
"The other day at table 1 explained
to him that we become what we eat
that by eating vegetables We become
mild and placid, but by eating meat
we become savage and gross.
'"Well, papa.' said the lad. 'If It's
true that we become what we eat.
why don't cannibals become mission
aries? "

A visitor to one of the hotels at Pe
