In Stephens Addition the residents say
that slabwood Js becoming a, greater nui
sance than the billboards. Besides the
many thousands ot -corda ol slabwood that
cover the laAi. field between. East Slslith
and SIxtn, all the vacant blocks along
Grand avenue are being covered 10 leet
deep with piles of slabwood, and this
week the vacant block between Grand
avenue and East Sixth street was thrown
open to the entry of the slabwood teams
for the overflow. Residents in that vi
cinity are wondering where the vast ac
cumulations will end. Piles of slabwood
confront them on all sides. Jost how
many "thousands of cords have already
been piled up on vacant property can
only bo conjectured, the residents say,
but think that even the billboards, with
their flaming stiver Us ements, would be a
relief from the acres of slabwood.

SPEAKS" AT THE HIGH SCHOOL
Give Some Ideas Which Are New
AHke-to Pupils and--Teachers,
and Tells of the Importance
of -Imagination." rri
To an audience composed of fully SCO
teachers and pupils, Mrs. Marlon Craig
Wentworth, of Boston,! yesterday after
noon delivered a lecture on the art of
teaching reading, at the Portland High
School. Mrs. Wentworth Is a sister ot
Miss Alice Craig, a teacher In the Eng
lish department at the High School.
In the course of her lecture Mrs. Went
worth gave an Interpretation of correct
reading which was very Interesting as
well as Instructive. Her pronunciation Is
so perfect and she becomes so enthu
siastic when reading that it seems as
though she were describing a scene from
real life. Mrs. Wentworth speaks In a
low tone, yet hex voice Is so clear and
penetrating, out nevertheless soft that 1L-
couid be plainly heard in all parts of tho
large assembly room of the High School.
"I will only tell you about the funda
mental principles at the art ot reading,"
said Mrs. Wentworth when she began
her lecture. "To cover thoroughly the
field and possibilities that are offered hy
this art would take several months." The
teachers looked surprised- They thought
they knew all about reading, but this
statement, although It came from one
who has been making a study of reading
for years, startled them.
"It is surprising how little is known
about the correct teaching of reading In
the public schools of this country," con
tinued Mrs. Wentworth. By this time
unrestrained amazement and astonlahr
znent was written upon the countenances
of her listeners. "Even when pupils are
reading tho most thrilling descriptions of
scenes or occurrences they pronounce the
words in mechanical sort of way as
though they were multiplying" figures.
They fall to- realize or grasp tho idea
and life of the article. One ot the hard
est and most trying tasks of college pro
fessors Is the teaching of correct read
ing to the pupils recently graduated from
the public schools.
"Words are symbols of life. The vari
ous things and figures wa see in print are
meant for the ear. They are a record of
the experience and excltejnent and nar
ratives taken from actual life. To get
the true meaning one must dig down Into
the printed page and catch the trend ot
imagination. Impression precedes ex
pression. When you gel the expression of
an article you can read correctly. The
faculty of imagination Is one of the fore
most essentials of the human mind. All
the great inventions and works of litera
ture are due to imagination."
Mrs. Wentworth in a heart to heart

Nearly every hand In the audience went
up. "Oh." said Mrs. Wentworth. "Al
most anyone can Imagine they hear some
popular tuno or march, but how many
of those present can. recall to their
memory some part from classical music"
Only three women stuck up their hands.

library last evenlngr "Mycenae and
Crete" was his subjecC He said in part:
"The picture that we bad of Greek art
SO years ago was of an art that began
with rude and almost grotesquo attempts
to portray men and animals, and finally
went on to almost if not quite 'absolute
perfection. But since then it has been
discovered that a splendid "bloom of art
preceded all this, and that the sew glory
was a sort of renaissance.
"This old art. which is usually called
Mycenaean "because It first appeared at
Mycenae, in the excavations .of Dr.
Schliemann, has -a right to be called Greek
"Dr. Schliemann was after the body of
Agamemnon, and stumbled upon some
thing vastly more Important.
"A beginning having been made, My
cenaean art kept turning up everywhere
in Greek lands. Vases, gold ornaments,
statuettes, and wall paintings, were its
principal material. In fact, a whole civ
ilisation was unearthed, which surprised
the world, although indications of it had
been given in Homer; but these had been
set down as the poet's fancies.
"This civilization was soon approxi
mately dated by the discovory at Mycenae
of Egyptian objects, like scarabs and bits
of porcelain bearing the names of Egyp

PETITIONS FOR FRANCHISES
Its Purpose Is to Supply Power and
Light by Its . Transmission
'Lines Throughout "the 1 "
. Willamette. Valley.
OREGON Crrr. Or., March 17. (Spe
cial. The Portland General Electric
Company has filed petition in the Coun
ty Court asking- for a. franchise oyer the
county roads between Oregon CJty and
Aurora for the transmission of electrical
light, power and energy. It will ask for a
similar franchise over the Marion county
roads between Aurora and Salem. The
company will erect an additional gen?
erating plant on the east side of the river
at Willamette Falls this year, and intends
to supply the Willamette Valley as fax
south as Salem with light and power.
The construction of the new power plant
will begin during the low-water perletl
this Summer. Ten thousand five hundred
horsepower will be Installed, and addi
tions wui be mane as fast as the demand
justifies the increase. The Portland Gen
eral Electric Company now has 12,000
horsepower from the station on the west
bank of the Willamette Falls, and will
soon have the same capacity from the
steam plant In Portland. In 1906- it will
have 7000 horsepower from the Oregon
Water Power Sc. Railway Company station
on the Clackamas River.
The foregoing telegram was shown to
tho ofilcials of the General Electric Com
pany in the city, who confirmed It. They
said that the purpose of the company in
building these lines was to distribute elec
trical power throughout the Willamette
"Valley. The power which will bo used
above the Willamette Falls will come
altogether from the new generating plant
to be built ok the east side of the river
at the falls.
ITS SPIRITUAL TEEBUTARY.
Ail the World Indebted to ' israel.
Says Dr. Wise.
The topic chosen by Dr. Stephen 8. Wise
for his Purim sermon last night was
"Israel and the Nations; or. Stooping Not
The story on which Dr. Wise s address
was based and the example held up to
his congregation are contained In the
book of Esther, with Mordecal and Queen
Esther as the central figures, and this
story and characters he found, typical
ot the Israelites and the world.
"The early part of that book.", said Dr.
Wise, "finds Mordecal and Esther stoop
ing to conquer; the latter part finds them
refusing to bow down and they would not
kneel. In the first part they failed, but
In the second by not stooping they con
quered. Their refusal to bow to the
Image set up before them was not as has
been stated an act of Insolence, but was
one ot highest courage and deepest piety,
"Israel In its relation to the world must
not stoop to conquer. It conquers not
when It does stoop and conquers when
It does not stoop. To stoop even though
to conquer Is a symbol of the abandon
ment of principle.
"I say tonight that Israel Is the con
queror of the world. I hold tonight and
believe, in my heart that the world 19
spiritually tributary to IsraeL Israel Is
the conqueror of the world, yes, con
queror In the true sense, not by ieat of
war, not in name but In fact and in act.
Israel, by not stooping to conquer has left
an Indelible- stamp and lneffacible im
pression on the world's civilisation.
"Whom does the world respect. They
say all the world loves a lover; but equal
ly more all tho world respects a self-
respecting man and despises .the one who
is faithless and who Js - deserted of his
race and religion and principles, the man
wep stoops to conquer."

lease ot life at a meeting held last eve

were only about 2o members present. At
first tney seemed rather indifferent
far as the success of the soderwas con
earned until some one suggested that
the organization better be disbanded be

terest, It was also stated that the other
state, societies were making rapid pros
rees and many of them were -far in ad
vance of the Missouri Society, although

This .caused an uproar and commotion
in the ranks of the Missouri an, -who did
not Uke the Ides, of the people or Other
