price extends up Into the-' Irrigated
regions of Yakima. Wash,
Cattlemen realize that there are more
cattle on the eastern Oregon ranges
than hay can be provided for, even at
exorbitant prices and it is to save the
pioictlve loss and avoid the Inhu

bones to bleach on the eastern Oregon
plains that relief Is sought.

slope of the Cascade mountains to the

OMEGO'S CARGO DISCHARGED
Barkcnthte Is to Bo Converted
' Into a Schooner.
The barkentlne Omega has finally
finished discharging her cargo of coal
and Is now at Knappton, where she l
taking on a cargo of lumber for Sun
Francisco. Of her ooal cargo 800 tons
were discharged at Flavel for Fort
Stevens. The work required almost
three weiks, on account of the scarcity
of cars. At Fort Columbia the balance
of the cargo, li9 tons, was discharged.
Inspector Crosby ivas aboard the vessel
for three weeks, returning to the city
The Omega is a four-masted barken
tlne, and it is understood that she will
be converted ' 'nto a four-masted
schooner on her return to San Francis
co. She Is one of the coasting fleet
owned by A. M. Simpson, the million

'The tendency of our educational
system has been to educate the children
away from the-work by which a large
majority must earn their living. The
purpose should be to educate the child'
ren along the line of their work to fit
them for the environment in which
they will soon find themselves. I do
not mean by this that all children
should become farmers or that they
should be taught that they" ought to
become farmera, nor that they should
be discouraged in an ambition to fit
themselves for any other occupation to
which their talents may lead them
What I mean to say is that since the
greater portion of the people of this
country must make their living by
farming or other occupations that re
quire a knowledge of the elements of
agriculture, the public schools should
Instruct the children upon this subject
Too often teachers are in almost com'
plcte ignorance of practical agriculture,
and, I am sorry to say, some of them
are not ashamed of their ignorance
I believe that a young man or woman
vho has worked on a farm or at any
other useful nanual labor Is a better
teacher, other things -being equal, than
one who has not the knowledge that
can thus be acquired. This subject
could take the place of 'Nature Study,'
and, if necessary, we could abbreviate
oiir arithmetic and geography." J. H
