the mornifig and did their tennis, before
breakfast. , This year there are fewer

are. a number of new activities eddetl,

Tomllnson. Thus far none have entered
the race.; It Is believed that any. of
them would accept the nomination, al
though none have . expressed puouc
opinions with the exception of Mr. Curl,
who stated publicly some time ago that
he would make the raoe in the event
of his nomination. - ' v -""

should make Grant county, one of the

ous sections of the state. During that

an average of nearly a million dollars

Salem, Or Oct. !5. Owing to many
conflicting statements in the school
laws as to when and to whom the school
tax levies must be reported, the state
superintendent has sent a letter to all
the county, superintendents requesting
them, to make their reports before De
cember 1. The letter says:

ruled that in order to be safe, the school
districts. should report their special tax
levies to the eounty superintendent, the
county clerk and the assessor, on or be
fore December first To avoid mistakes
In the ' form and -manner of reporting
these levies we have prepared uniform
report blanks, and are . sending you a
supply under another cover. - '':
"Some of the -superintendents follow
the nractlee of wrltina- each district
during October or November and ex
plaining the manner of levying and re
porting district taxes. : If the attention
of the district officers Is not called to
this at the proper time, some of them
forget the matter until it la too late to
report the levies. In writing to the dis
trict r. it s well to enclose special school
meeting 'notices and three copies of the
blanks for reporting the levy. q i
"Section 322, of the Oregon School
Lawn of 191$. provides that the county
clerk, upon the application of the dl-
trlct clerkvor directors, shall furnish
each district with a certificate shewing
the valuation of the taxable property in ,

eounty clerks would be willing to send
put these statements upon the request
of the county superintendent, if fur.

and their addresses." Vv,

Because we do not cut-rate the quality
of our work. The profit of our busi
ness Is equalised and Inflexible, as Is
the satisfaction and service it renders
you. . There. Is no fluctuation In the
market of Alveolar teeth. , : : ' "
The merit of our system 'of dentietrv
lias been scrutinised by the moat in
credulous and not found wantin- in
any particular. Many years of experi
ence have atteated its superiority and
satisfaction In brief. It Is this: If ybu

good roots in either Jaw. we will re-
Flace all that are missing, whether in
rout er back, by teeth which are stron-
and - natural. - without krldgework or -plates.
- This would be impossible tn
ordinary dentistry, even If you had
eight or ten teeth to anchor to. Even
In those cases where brldgework Is
possible there Is no comparison between .
the two.' In brldgework the strain .
that is forced upon the pier teeth hold
ing. the bridge is terrific and must, by
its construction, in - time loosen those
tooth to -which it is attached and out
comes the bridge. - This will happen
with a second and a third brida-e until
all the teeth are destroyed, and finally
a piate is tne last resort. Our method
of dentistry does not only -supply you
with missing teeth, but tends to .pre
serve those natural teeth which are
ntlll left In your month. It would be
imnoaxlhlA fo. enumerate In thla sniHll
space the advantages of our work. . For
this reason we invite an or you who
