David Fraser is the name of the latest
transcontinental trotter, who started
from Aberdeen, WaBh., for Boston,
Mass., on tho 4th of July. He must
reach that city in a certain time and
must walk an average of 24 miles a day
to do it, walking every step of the way.
There is a bet of $1000 that he cannot do
it. He reached The Dalles last evening,
walking from Viento, and since he is
ahead of time and the weather is so
warm he fcpent the forenoon in the city.
He is dreBsed "in warm 'though light

Bryan listened to it without comment
or surprise, but the story must have
lingered in his memory, for the same
afternoon.he visited Herrick's cannery.
At the time the receiving platforms were
full of fine fresh chinooks. Looking at
them admiringly for a moment Bryan
said in a sort of a soliloquy: "Wonder
if that old man wasn't telling the truth."

THE GIBL FOUND.
A telegram in today's Oregonian from
Pendleton announces that the little!
girl has been found, and tells the follow
ing story in connection with the event
Emma, the 4-year-old daughter of Post
master Nelson, of Susanville, was found)
Sunday, sitting on a pile of driftwood by)
the riverside, apparently nnconcerned
after being lost seven days. The child
recognized the man who found her, said
"Hello" and called him by name. She
said she had not been frightened ; she
knew she was lost, but thought she
wonld soon find papa. It is learned
that the little one lived on berries and
flesh from the carcass of a calf killed by
coyotes, quenched her thirst at the river,
where she washed her face every morn
ing. She had made a nine-mile circuit
in the.niost dangerous part of the mount
ains. She suffered none. Her preser
vation is regarded as a miracle.

ers cannot avail themselves of the privi
leges these agencies offer.
To these no better substitute can be
offered than earnest and intelligent in
stitute work. Many of the stronger and
more ambitious may succeed in carry
ing on work by themselves, but the
great majority need the direction and
assistance, and the sense of fellowship
that come from organization.
Recognizing this need the state has
devised a system of institutes and teach
ers' meetings and the teacher's duty
thereto is embraced in the following rule
of the state board :
"Teachers in the public schools in this
state are required to attend all teachers'
institutes held under authority of law in
the counties where they reside, provided,
that they shall be required to attend the
annual institute in their county each
year. For non-attendance of any
teacher at the institute, without a good
and sufficient reason, the county super
intendent is hereby authorized to lower
the grade of his or her certificate or re
voke the same, in his discretion, accord
ing to subdivision 23, section 25, Oregon
school laws. School directors are re
quired to allow their teachers two days
of actual school service for such attend
ance, without any deduction from their
wages, and without requiring them
afterwards to made up the time eo

That very many are more than willing
to avail themselves of the wise directions
as given in the institutes.is proved by the
large attendance of the various insti
tutes held in the state.
That much good has been accom
plished is true, but there has been a
tendency among those ' directing and
pushing the work of the institutes to in
stitute quantity for quality, and there is
no small danger that the result, will be
reaction, or at least, indifference on the
part of the teachers who are to be the
beneficiaries. Such work mast be vital
ized, and sustained by more than ordi
nary ability and talent on the part of its
leaders or it is likely to prove popular
only for the moment.
Teachers, especially, need the stimulus
and broader outlook that comes from
well conducted institute work.
The normal schools and universities
provide facilities ' for those who can af
ford the time and expense, but a larger

A telegram was received this morning
