scramble among capitalists to buy. Men
with money will back an entire stranger

would break their hearts.

A dispatch from. Tacoma, July 29th,
Professor S. E. McClure, of Eugene, a
member of the Mazamas' Eociety that
made the ascent of Mount Rainier Tues
day, lost his footing while descending
the mountain Wednesday and fell 300
feet. He struck on a pile of rocks, and
was instantly killed. His body was re
covered several hours later by a search
ing party, and was brought to Tacoma
The Mazamas encamped in Paradise
valley Monday, and about 30 of the party
began the ascent to the peak that day,
arriving at Gibralter rock that night,
where they camped.
Early Wednesday morning Professor
McClure, Professor Baillie, Professor
Mitchell, of New York, and Dr. E. De
witt Connell, of Portland, started ahead
of the main party, and arrived at the
mountain top about noon. Professor
McClure carried a barometer for the pur
pose of taking observations on the top of

the party near the summit, and arriving
at Gilbralter rock, awaited their return.
I They arrived at Camp Muir about 9 :30
on their way to Paradise valley, and,
soon after leaving that point, lost their
way. The leader and the various mem-
era of the party began cautiously to
earch for the trail. The lights of the
amp in Paradise valley were plainly
visible, and, although it was a tramp of
nearly four hours, the way to this camp
had seemed so plain that nobody felt the
Professor McClure ventured toward
the edge of a cliff, and announced that
he saw a large pile of rocks a few hun

within 50 feet of him, keeping up a con

members of the party who had been
with Prof. McClure that the searchers
were soon able to reach the point on the
side of the mountain directly under
neath. Daylight broke about 3:30, and the
body of Prof. McClure was found lying
on a great pile of boulders, forming a
great, forbidding shelf.
Professor McClure's body fell a sheer
300 feet, and bounded about forty feet
outward toward the edge of the cliff. It
lay within twelve feet of the . face of tbe
mountain, and, bad it fallen over, would
have dropped two or three miles, and in
all probability would have disappeared
jnto one of tbe huge crevasses which
seam the mountain there.

roll of blankets and his barometer

was broken, but all of his papers and
notes of observation were found in his

like the faliing of rock. He looked in
the direction where Professor McClure
had stood a movement before, but be
was not to be seen. He at once called
to him, but received no response, and
the members of the party then began a
systematic search', but, failing to find
McClure, concluded that he had fallen
off the cliff.
It was nearly an hour before the trail
to camp was found, and tbe members of

pedagogues whose purses are more or
less destitute. Dufdr Dispatch.
We fear the editor of the Dispatch,
who is usually good-natured, has caught
the Clondvke fever, got dyspepsia ot
some other nerve-upsetting trouble. In
answer to the above, the second inquiry
of the kind be has made, we will say
that the "teachers' institute now insti
tuting" was instituted under the school
laws governing county school institutes.
That law provides that such institute
shall be held for not less than three days
and no fees are charged teachers for at
tending it. We will say further that the
payment of tbe $2.50 which the teachers
have already paid is entirely optional
with them. School Superintendent Gil
bert, in the interest of the teachers, and
because of a general request from them
that be do so, arranged -for holding four
weeks' institute instead of one for three
days. He gets nothing, of course, for
his extra work, and the three teachers
who have charge of the classes will be
paid for their month's work about $34
each, $70 of which was contributed by
the teachers and $32 being the amount
in the institute fund. We will add fur
ther that those attending the institute
are grateful for the opportunity given
them to join these review classes, that
cover the range of examinations, from
life diplomas down, and all of them feel
that the money they have contributed
was well spent. We hope this explana
tion will mollify our good brother, and
convince hiua that neither the county
nor tbe teachers are being robbed.
