Oak Grove residents are justly proud
of their new school building, for In i!
are embodied the latest Ideas In pro
viding for the comfort and convenience
of teachers and patrons. It is a sub
stantial and attractive brick building
Including one story, a large basement
and also a sub-basement. There are
four large, well lighted school rooms,
also a library and a teachers' room. Il
has accommodations for about 175 chil
dren. There are now enrolled about
75 and the building therefore gives
ample provision for the future growth
of this enterprising district. Ninth
grade work is being given at the
school this year for the first time, Miss
Hazel Stanton having taken charge or
Albert Sutton was the architect who
designed the building and L. P. Hoyrd
The building is comfortably heated
at all seasons, a battery of two hot-air
furnaces being used, a uniform tem
perature being automatically maintain
ed by the use of a thermostatic at
tachment. Forced ventilation is secured by the
use of an electric motor. There are
two drying rooms in the basement
where the children's wraps can be
hung If necessary. In the main hall
is a long bench In front of which are,
a line of foot warmers. Oak Grove
children will therefore have no excuse
for getting "cold feet."
Anothr feature of the building is a
largo assembly room that Is provided
with a stage and may be used for en
talnments or community gatherings.
There are also two large playrooms In
the basement, provision being thereby
made for the children's recreation as
well as education.
The building cost about $20,000. Al
though now occupied, It Iibb not yet
been officially accepted. The s hool

built Includes II. A. Cunning. 7.. Annala

Snow Banner of trie World's Most Im
Travelers declare that Mount Shasta
Is the most impressive mountain In the
world, for It stand solitary and alone.
Unlike Tikes peak and ninny other of
the world's great mountains. It Is not
surrounded by a number of lesser ones,
and Its tremendous height 14,1-10 feet
-is appreciated by the eye.
It Is sublimely grand and yet grace
fully beautiful. Against the blue of a
California sky its curved outlines seem
to sweep In the perfect segments of a
clrcla from the apex of the cone to the
Far up on its base the dark green of
the timber line Is met by the virgin
w hiteness of Shasta's snow, and then
on, up and up, far past the summer
clouds, imiIiiIs the alabaster pyramid.
Shasta is an extinct volcano and has
two large glaciers. The Whitney gla
cier is visible from the rnllroad. It
looks like a narrow streak of snow, but
It Is over a mile In w idth nnd Is seam
ed with great tlssures and crevasses.
At (lines a natural banner Is unfurled
from Shasta's peak. This Is called the
"snow banner of Shasta." It only oc
curs when the gale attacks the summit
nnd blows the snow In great gusts
"streaming against the sky," as the
railroad book has It. The banner la
seen most frequently In November.

Militarists Consider EnverBey
Too Ambitious and Plan

A Parrot and a Russet Cob That W era I
Well Provided For.
The making of queer wills is a sub
ject proline of good stories, and some
remarkable examples are given by Vlr-:
gll M. Harris In "Ancient, Curious and
Famous Wills." One Caroline Hunter, j
an elderly plnster, left 1,000 In trust J
for her parrot. The money was to pro-1
vide It with a home nnd to guarantee It ;
attention at the bauds of a custodian,
who had to be of the femnlo sex and '
had to undertake not to leave England. 1
The will Included this clause: 1
"I w ill nnd desire thnt whoever tries
to frustrate these my Intentions shall
forfeit whatever I have left him, her '
or them. I owe nothing to any one. !
Many owe me gratitude and money. I
but none hnve pnld me either."
A rustle of Toulouse nbout 1781 wrote
n brief will In these terms:
"I deelnre that I appoint my nmset
cob my universal heir, nnd I desire that
be may belong to my nephew, George."
This was contested, but wns con
firmed, ns It was clear that the said
George In owning tho horse would
have control of the money; also he
would not be nblo to transfer or dlssl
pato the ensh for the simple reason
that he would require the horse'a con
sent, which would bo difficult to obtain.
Constantinople. Gravest apprehen
sion of further and more serious dis
orders Is felt throughout Turkey.
There Is a well-defined rumor that a
counter-revolution was planned to
overthrow the committee of union and
progress that seized the sublime porte
after assassinating Nazlru Pasha, commander-in-chief
of the army
It Is a matter of common knowledge
thnt many of the most Influential offi
cers of the Turkish army are bitterly
opposed to Enver Bey and his bigh
handed methods and the newest revo
lutionary plot is said to have the back
ing of the soldiers now at Chatalja.
The militarists credited with plan
ning the counter revolution fear the
Influence of Enver Bey. They believe
he is too radical as well as too ambi
tious. They believe that he means to
make himself absolute dictator of Tur
key, If possible, and that practical an
archy would follow the success of his
Adrianople clearly Is the paramount
Issue of the Halkan war In the Otto
man mind, and It Is believed that re
fusal to give up the city would be Tur
key's eventual answer to the powers
and to the allies, no matter how many
revolutions, counterrevolutions and
ministers succeeded themselves on the
kaleidoscopic pane of the Ottoman empire.
London. The Balkan plenipotenti
aries, who have received full powers
from their respective governments, ap
pointed a committee to draft a note to
the Turkish plenipotentiaries, explain

New York. Hundreds of aliens,
many of them still clad in the gnrb of
