The Shattuck School, again brought
to prominence by the work which has
been started on the erection of a new
Shattuck School building, has a history
which had been closely associated with
the development of Portland and has
graduated many of the prominent citi
zens of this city.
Tho first Shattuck School building,
called at that time tho 1 larrison School,
was erected in 18tfr, on Harrison street,
between Fifth and Sixth streets, at a
cost of Jf941. It was a two-story struc
ture of three rooms. The building was
later added to, an addition being erect
ed at a cost of $4l;i5 in 1S71. It was
further enlarged to a 11-room building,
at a cost of J5841, in 1S77. thus maktns

May 29. 187:, and it was rebuilt im
mediately at a cost of Sl'l.hOO. The
structure was partially destroyed by

rebuilt. During tho rebuilding the
school occupied rented rooms In van
ous places besides one room in the Fail

In lf04 the School Board renamed the
building Shattuck School, in honor of

resident in the neighborhood for manv
years, a member of the School Board at
one time, a teacher himself in the early
days of Oregon, and always interested

Yes, it was wet again and for the

days, and in between the rain drops

ment. Roars Abundant In Bloom.
But. after all. it was the lovers of
the beautiful who were most amazed,
for it is safe to say the roses and flower-beds
at the park are 10 days ahead
of anywhere else in the city.
Kvery- rosebed is a. mass of variously
huod blooms and the sight is one that
arouses admiration. Authorities on
rose culture declare that the careful at
tention, but. above all, the tepid river
waterfor sprinkling purposes, is what
turns the trick.
Despite the day. the picnicker and
his wife likewise his family and
friends were out in force and the maid
who presides over the pots and pans
(yes. .and actually refuses tips) in the
free electric kitchen, found her hands
full, cleaning up.
Talking of tipping, there is a whole
sonic cleaning up along these lines all
over The Oakes, In the skating rink,
for instance. No longer does the skater
or his friends have to pay for admis
sion; no longer can you pay to check
your wraps and no longer dare you tip
the attendants who attach- the skates.
Job Gone If Tip In Taken.
"A single tip to any employe in The
Oaks will cost that employe his Job.
That Is final," commented Manager
Cordray. "1 don't care who is to blame
the tipper or the tlppeo but one tip
means one job."
Whereat there will be much rejoic
ing. Outside of the amusement features,
the most interest centered round the
Mystic River, the new water ride. You
race along in foaming rapids and over
rock-strewn cascades: you see yourself
apparently struggling for life in the
water (an unusual mirror effect) ; you
dash under water-falls a'nd through
flower-lined canyons, and. let It be told
in a whisper, there are dark, yes, dark
places galore in the course of the half
The water Is fresh spring water, ob
tained from a well dug for the purpose.
It is changing every minute. Ho all the
old traditions of odorous river rides are
abolished in an instant.
Submarine to Arrive Saan,
They are getting ready for a sub
marine out at The Oaks, which will
be there in a week or two, and are
beginning to lay tracks for the new
steam railroad. There is a mammoth
telescope, which Mr. Cordray swears
brings the sun and moon and stars
closer than Mount Hood. There is
Punch and Judy with its perpetual fas.
cination for the kiddles.
Then in the open-air auditorium, D.
P. Nason and his concert band gave a
concert that actually brought repeated
encores. Popular airs were mingled
with classical ones In a manner that
gave the restless foot barely a chance
to settle down. The music had a punch
and a spirit rarely seen in bands at
The Oaks. In a word, it made good.
There was a beautiful singer, whose
name was not announced. The Boston
Troubadours were composed of about
20 pretty girls in late musical hits,
laced up deftly into a musical comedy,
and oh yes there were two tr three
comedians that did not make one hate
the thought of comedy. Complete pro
grammes are announced for every line
