K- L. King of Albany, an efficient
employe of the Postal Telegraph
company, accompanied W. II. Buoy
and Attorney Hawkins on a fishing
expedition to Drift creek last Fri
day. The young man proved to be
n full-blown tenderfoot, shook his
companions early next morning,
without their knowledge or con
sent, and returned to Toledo. He
couldn't stand the brush, the pre

THE TEACHERS' INSTITUTE.
! A rather sma11 attendance marked
the PeinS of lhe teachers insti-
tute in Toledo Wednesday.- This

that all roads do not lead to TrXMrV
The greater per cent of our teach
ers belong to the tender sex, and
while' they" are strong-minded, and
would "face a frowning, world,"
and all that sort of thing, Oregon
mountain trails, rivers and bays
serve as reminders that they are
only women and girls after- all.
True, there are exceptions. Some
of those in attendance encountered
all the above-mentioned obstacles
and arrived here on schedule time.
But we're approaching dangerous
.uiiv..Tjeiiy luicuuuu Was UCVOiea
etc.,' "Language," a paper by Miss
Ivmma Wright, being carried over
for the" first number of the after
noon session. This was a verv able
effort and received Close attention.
Prof. P. O. Bonebrake, president
of rhilomath college, talked "His
tory." This is. evidently the pro
fessor's favorite theme, and interest
never lags while he occupies the
floor. He is the leading "thing"
in the institute, and worth a fifty
mile trip over all kinds of trails.
But pardon us again.
"Supplementary Reading," a
paper by Miss M. L. Hampton, who
registers from Rocca, Polk county,
was intensely interesting. Miss
Hampton is almost an enthusiast on
the subject, and her many valuable
suggestions were appreciated.
The opening 'number Aat the ses
sion Thursday forenoon was a paper
on "Geography" by Mrs. . K.J.
Norton, which was brief, but mer
.Prof. Bonebrake led in an inter
esting discussion of the subject,
"Grammar," which proved that
great minds continue to differ; also
that "grammarians" are somewhat
addicted to the use of "Knglish as
she is spoke."
"Arithmetic" was "handled by
Mrs. N. Tunison and Miss Kmilie
Henry. The former explained her
method of teaching "rapid work,"
while Miss Henry gave a brief talk
on "the 45 combinations."
At the opening of the afternoon
session Superintendent Bethers read
some interesting comment and
statistics from an educational paper
It was shown that in the state of j
Illinois there are several hundred
schools having an average daily a
tenoance of less than ro; that Ion
sclloolhonses are still doing service
in that state: that many schools
are never visited by the county

Per by Miss Ktnilie Henry," is in
our humble opinion, worthy of
more than passiher notice. It was
thoroughly appreciated, especially
by teachers, and a copy of it in the
hands of every young instructor
should be a guide to success.
At the evening session Rose
brooks orchestra made some ex
cellent, "music, and Sheriff Ross
rendered a pair of vocal Solos in his
usual applause-catching style, his
musical little daughter Verne fur
nishing a faultless accompaniment.
A spicy batch of "Current
Events" was furnished by Miss
May Harrison of Waldport. Miss
Harrison was not present, but Miss
Hampton was her efficient proxy.
In dealing with "Current IJ vents,"
Miss Harrison evinces an argu
mentativeness that may cause us to
challenge her to a duel on the ros
trum when we can spare the time
possibly during the summer of 1950.
It was a bright grist just the same.
A select reading by Mrs. Hattie
B. Tracy made a very favorable
The feature of the evening was
Prof. Bonebrake's lecture on Africa,
prefaced by a description of the
ocean voyage from Liverpool to
"The Dark Continent. 'including

Fred Stanton brought into The
Leader office a few days ayo some
samples of the pie plant grown at
his city home away up on the hill.
Application of the tape-line showed
that it was a little more than twenty-one
feet around the outer ede
of the leaf of the larger sample,
and the stalk was a little more than
seven inches in diameter. The
sample hadn't finished its growth,
either. If, any man doubts this,
he will get into trouble with Fred

. No County Fair This Fall.
Nashville, Or., July 30, 1900.-
Editor of the Lincoln County
Leader: The time has slipped by
for making all the many prepara
tions needed for the proposed coun
ty fair to be held at Toledo on or
about September 14 next. To
make a success of it, a working
committee, representing. every pre-',
cint in the county, should be organ
ized and at work arranging for ex
hibits, collecting funds for the ex
penses of printing, advertising:,,
premiums, display of exhibits and
various other purposes. But it is
too late for this year to make the
effort. Under these circumstances.
my advice to all interested is to re
serve themselves for root, and to
be ready early in that year to re
spond promptly to an invitation to
join heart and hand in an effort to'
make the Lincoln county fair of
1901 truly representative of the
varied and abundant resources of
this fertile and most attractive-
county. Wallis Nash.
