The attention of school Board's is
called tothe section of the school law
imposing a penalty upon those
districts failing to adopt and use tli3
uniform series of school books.There
must be a full and complete compli
ance with the requirements of the
law. A resolution of the Board of
Directors adopting the books i not
sufficient. The books must be used
and no others.

ter. The grass is growing greon, I lfferent to the education of their

A wag srtys, that in journeying
lately, he was put into an omnibus
with a dozen persons of whom he
did not know a single one. Turn
ing a corner shortly after however
the omnibus was upset. "And
then," said he, "I found them all
i . . ,
Twelve States have adopted com
pulsory attendance as a remedy for
ignorance. Why have they adopted
it? In establishing free schools they
toolc the position that the property
of the State should educate the
child ren of the State. They As
serted that universal education
wwuld enrich tho , State and crime
and poverty- would diminish or en
tirely disappear. Tjuie tax payers
admitted that the education of all
tho children of the State would be of
incalculable advantage. And that
all should be educated was tho onlv
valid consideration they received in
exchange for their property.
Now admitting that such a consid
eration is va-id and sufficient, are
not the authorities of the State, the
legislature and the wlnde education
al department, morally bound to see
that the promise of a consideration
be made good? If property pays to
educate the people, it expects the
education that it gives to become its

l Lienor just to tax large properly
i holders, who have no childaen to
send to school, on the plea of the
j desirability of universal education,
when the very children for whom
the burden is borne are running the
j streets a public nuisance, it may
be inconvenient for some peisons to
j dispense with the services of their
j children, hut should they not sub-
mit for the good of the State? Is it
re n residing in the district; would it
not be better to apportion it upon
ihe number altei-ding school?
Would not such a law awahen the
interest of the whole community i i
the regular attendance of children in
the school? Would not negligent
parents be compelled to feel that
thev are observed, and that thev can
not sin in this matter with impuni
ty? AVould not a public sentiment
be created which would be felt with
great force, in favor of a full and
constant attendance at public
schools? Would it not relieve the
difficulties that arise when pupils
find it convenient to attend schoo
away from home? AVould it do away
altogether with the question of res
idence? Would it notbe an encour
agement to districts to have good
and large school houses, and to sus
tain good and efficient schools, be
cause large schools arc cheaper than
small ones? If a teacher earns one
dollar for hearing three classes of
eight pupils each, docs not the reci
tation of each pupil cost over four
cents? If he had three classes' of
fifteen pupils each, is not each pupil
instructed for a little more than two
cents? This shows that a school of
one hundred pupils is cheaper than
one cf forty at naif the money, pro
vided tho payment is made accord
ing to the work done.
Something ought to done in this
matter for the benefit of Oregon.
There are nnuy of the citizens whoso
education is very limited, if not en-
"o-"v A.xw... .
6ent as tho parents or guardians may
choose. The claim is made and ; in
sisted upon, that it is a matter that
concerns no ono but the parents
themselves whethei their children
are educated or not. But if the Uni
ted States is not corcerned, why
does it give land to create school
funds? If the State and the neigh
borhood are not concerned, why do
they levy taxes for the education of
these children? Individual rights
cannot conflict with public rights,
for the right of the individual ceases
when its enjoyment is inconsistent
with the public welfare, and more
especially if the power and efficiency
of the government are endanged
thereby. Let ua then agree with
the resolution of the old Pilgrims,
1G42, twenty-two years after they
landed at PI vmouth rock: "For as
the good education of children is of
singular behoof and benefit to any
commonwealth; and whereas, man'
parents and masters nre too indul
gent and negligent of their duty in
this kind, it is, therefore, ordered
bv this court and tho authoritv
thcreot, that the fcelectmen of evciy
town shall have a vigilant eve to sec
that none shall suffer so much bar
barism in their families, as not to
have them taught perfectly to read
the English tongue, and to have
some useful knowledge of tho capi
tal laws upon pain of twenty bhil
lings for each neglect ' therein. ''
Mrs. Slanton is a handsome wo
man. Miss Anthony and Miss Liv
erinore are both plain. Maria and
Jane Porter were women of high
brows and irregular featiws, as was
also Miss Sedgewick. Ann Dick
inson has a strong masculiuo face:
Kate Field has a good-looking face
face, though by no means a pretty
one; and Mrs. Stowe is thought to
be positively homely. Alice and
Pho'bo Cary were both plain in fea
tures, though their sweetness in dis
position added gicatly to their per
sonal appearance. Margaret Fuller
had a splendid head, but her fea
tures were irregular, and she was
anything but handsome, though
sometimes in a glow of conversation
she appeared almost radiant. Char
lotte Bronte has wondrcusly beau
tiful dark brown eyes and perfectly
shaped head. She was small to di
Miiiutiveiiess, and was as simple in
he manner as a child. Julia Ward
Howe is a fine-looking woman,
wearing an aspect of grace and re
finement, and great force of charac
ter in her face and carriage. Laura
Holloway resembles CharlotteBronte
both in personal appearance an I hi
the sad experience of her young life.
Neither Mary Booth norMarian Har
lan can lav claim to handsome faces,
though ihey are splendid specimens
of cultured women, while MaryCleni
mer Ames is just a pleasing in fea
tures as her writings are graceful
and popular. Ers
The Great Market for Wheat.
The British Board of Trade re
turns show that the imports of
Wheat and Flour into tho United
Kingdom for the nine months end
ing on the 1st ofOctober were equiv
alent to 01,000,000 bushels Wheat,
or 2,000,000 bushels in excess of the
same time last year. Tho two
chief sources of supply aro Russia
and the United States. Tho quanti
ty imported from tho United States
is 31,518,000 bushels, an increase of
1G,000,000 bushels over the previous
year; while tho quantity drawn
from Russia is 12,198,000 bus' els, a
decrease of 5,015,000 bushels as
compared with the same time last
year. Tho growing importance of
the United States as a source of food
supply for the millions in Europe is
very gratifying, though Wheat this
year is unfortunately tho least profit
able cereal produced.

trains, going to tho land of gold and

worn its way through has a depth of
5C0 feet.' About 200 claims aro now
taken. It has bsen traced for about
twenty miles through a very rough
country. Guides get from $10 to$20
per day to trace the lead. Calvig
says he crushed a few pounds of tho
oro and it averaged ten cents per
pound in gold. A town has sprung
up iu a few weeks. It is to bo known
as Mam mouth City. Hotels, feed
stables, shops and other buildings
aro being built, and all that is need
