BUILD UP OUR SCHOOL
This school district, should
iiot fail, at next Saturday's
meeting, to levy i tax sufli
eiently large to at .least main
tain the Madras school in its
present eflioienoy. The district
is a populous one and its
growth will be rapid, in the next
lew years, and a start shou'd
be made towards providing the
school facilities which will be
demanded. Madras is centrally
located, with a number of
smaller school districts sur
rounding it, aiid by reason of
its location it should be and
will become, the educational
centre of a large territory. But
good schools cannot be built up
in a day, and it is therefore im
portant that the start already
inade in that direction should
be followed up so that the
school facilities may be gradu
ally increased as there is de
mand for them. To do this
may necessitate the levy of a
higher tax than the district has
paid in the past, but it would
be a short-sighted policy to fail
to meet that necessity if it
The Madras school district
should begin to formulate plans
now, for the organization of
"h uuion high school at thjs
place at the next annual meet
ing of the district, taking in as
manj' of tlie neighboring dis
tricts as care to come into the
union high school. The state
school laws provide for the es
tablishment of these union high
schools, and for exemption from
the county high school tax for
such districts a3 compose the
union high school. The Bend
kchool distict, which has ven
wisely built up a good school
and which some time ago organ
ized a high echoo', it is under
stood will this year be exempi
from the county high school
Too much stress cannot be
laid upon the importance ol
maintaining a good school at
this place, and the property
owners of the district should
not attempt to economize at
next Saturday's meeting, at the
expense of our school.

RAILROAD ROW DEPOPULATED
Railroad row is without an
occupant, and for the first time
in a good many months Madras
is without its quota of railroad
engineers. There have been
one or more parlies camped at

over, and that lug next parly
