At a meeting cf the school board on
Taeeday it was decided that in addition
to the studies taught formerly in the
high school, one class in Latin would be
added. It will be optional with the stu

erty to use their own discretion about
taking up this branch.
The Chronicle force thankfully ac
knowledge the kindness of Mr. Charles
Craig for bringing them a half dozen
fine water-melons from bis farm on
Chenoweth creek today. Although we

pled to be unsurpassed in bringing to
light the negro propensities of the vari

Last evening Ed Sharp and family,
accompanied by Harry W. Kelly and
Geo. R. Campbell, returned from a sur

Sharp had a government contract to
survey certain lands in that range, and,
owing to the difficulty of the undertak;

summer of '97, and had to retnrn this
summer to complete the work. They in

The honest merit of oar goods is an effective appeal to the good
judgment of the customer who realizes that nothing is cheap
which d-ies not poseess eterling worth proportionate to the price
asked. We aim to select ami sell only such goods as will fill
the expectation of the buyer lrom first to last ;' at the time of
purchase it is mainly a question of style, afterward it becomes
a test of service and durability.
.You will find ua stocked with the goods that meet these de
mand?, and as time proves the genuinesa of our quality, you
will feel like coming for more.
We are sellers of goods of high grade and quality, strictly mod

Thomas Hamilton and although we
have been unable to learn the exact
quotations they must, on account of
their splendid quality, have demanded a
high figure. The large number of high
quality sheep that are being shipped
from this state to points east speaks
well for the enterprise of Oregon sheep
men in keeping the best grades' that
can be had.
In all probability there will be no
boat from Portland to this city today, as
the crank shaft on the Sarah Dixon
broke on the trip down yesterday. The
shaft was cracked for several months but
was not considered dangerous. Yester
day it was noticed that the break was
serious enough to make it dangerous In
swift water, so that it was considered
best not to ran the boat until a new
shaft was put it. It was the company's
intention to get another boat today, but
it is feared thia cannot be done on Euch
Captain J. W. Lewis returned this
morning from a buskess trip to Sher
man county. He infolms U9 that it will
take several weeks to finish threshing iu
that section, and confirms the report as
to the partial failure
of the combined
harvesters which theyj
to introduce into that I
ection. He does
not think they will prtwe a success when
given a fair trial, and Believes the farm
ers will be forced to re

the more primitive me
ns of harvesting
with the headers and reapers.
The price of Columbia river canned
salmon has gone up at a rapid rate the
last few weeks, and owing to the short
age in this summer's pack the supply
will be inadequate to meet the large de
mand. Seufert Brothers inform us that
they have disposed of their entire stock
of canned salmon, some of which they
have bad stored for two years, and could
easily find market ifor much more than
they will be able to can during the fall
season. Numerous buyers are desirous
of contracting for the fish before the
season opens at all, while the retail
merchants are laying in a large stock for
fear that a shortage may be experienced.
I wish to announce to the public that

ENTIRE PROCEEDINGS UP TO
Names of Teachers and Visitors Present
A ii Interesting: Paper on the
Chataaqua by Miss
Wednesday's afternoon session of the
Annual Teachers Institute was opened
by singing several patriotic songs, with
a large number of teachers present.
Miss Melissa Hill gave a graphic and
interesting account of her "Summer
Vacation". She spoke of fossil hunting
in Oregon and of her trip through Cali
fornia. While there she visited several
schools. Miss. Hill, true to the Ameri
can spirit, would admit to Californians
but one thing that could excel an
Oregon production, that being the ex
plosion of the powder works at Sacra
mento. The paper allowed of no dis
cussion. Miss Emma S. Roberts, in her paper,
spoke of the advantages and pleasures
to be had at the Cbatanquaat Gladstone
Park. She says the most notable feature
of the Chataaqua was the Chemawa In
dian School, commenting upon their
fine training, good behavior and popu
Mrs. Ellen D. Baldwin, on Number
Work in Primary Grades, brought out a
number of salient points, among which
were the necessity of compelling pupils
to do neat work from the first. The
paper brought forth some discussion
entered into bv several members of the
C. M. Sisson not being able to be
present sent in his paper on The Com
mon School Idea, which was read by
Miss Rintoul. Mr. Sisson brought out
by comparison of the school as it used
to be and as it now is, some terse points,
showing that the common school idea
is growing broader and deeper year by
Miss Minnie Elton read an excellent
paper on School Incentives. She di
vides Incentives into two classes, Natu
ral and Artificial. Sbe very strongly
condemns the giving of prizes as an in
centive to study.
R. R. Allard, on Opening Exercises,
brought forth a lengthy discussion.
Professors Ackerman, Landers, Snyder
and others taking a lively part. Among
a number of opening exercises mentioned
were the reading and telling of good
stories; singing, which was especially
mentioned by Mr. Allard, marching,
and saluting the flag.
Mary L. Douthit read an excellent
paper on The Theory of the Kintergar
ten. Mrs. Douthit was asked to pub
lish her paper in order that' all may read
J. T. Neff,on Should Corporal Punish
ment be Abolished, brought forth a
lively discussion from all parts of the

entire' abolishment of ' such modes of
punishment, stating that he thought

they were brutal and that perhaps the
teacher had a higher mission. Prof.
Howe was called on for his opinion on
the subject and responded to say that
he had read only a short time before
where a child had gone sadly astray be
cause it hadn't received the proper
amount of spanking. While some ad
hered strongly "to this mode of punish
ment under certain circumstances, the
general opinion was for the outgrowth
of such barbaric treatment.
Thursday morning's -session opened
with an interesting description of his
trip to Mt. Vernon. Points of interest
passed on the way: Old Battle Ground
of Bull Rnn ; the little church in which
Washington worshipped ; the old build
ing in which Col. Ellsworth was shot
when attempting to pull down the rebel
flag; the old Washington estate kept in
shape by a society of ladies. Songs,
America, Seeds of Promise, All Hail!
Prof. Ackerman, on Arithmetic, by
simple illustration made all examples
in Percentage appear quite easy. He
condemns the use of old methods in
volving Base, Rate, Percentage, etc .
Prof. Gavin, on Spelling, brought forth
a number of common popular mistakes
in pronunciation, among which he
mentioned the words dance, last, tube,
blue. Mr. Gavin says that the common
pronunciation of the word "her" and
others containing tilda e, is not based
upon any authority. He also calls at
tention to the mispronunciation of such
words as long, song, on, hog, dog, log.
The ortboepic melange unearthed a
number of common mispronunciations
as well as furnishing some amusement.
Prof. Ackerman, ou History, said to
the teachers, 1st. "Do not assign lessons
by pages"; 2nd. "Look lessons over
carefully"; 3d. "Determine essential
points"; 4th. "Have pupils read the
lesson with teacher"; 5th. "Settle upon
essential points"; Gth. "Study the
Geography of the lesson carefully" ; 7th,
"Have pupils draw Historical maps."
Pupils should study history for the love
of it, not for passing an examination.
If students do not love history it is be
cause it has not been presented properly
to them. Accompany history lesson
with more or less stories of historical
n at u re.
Prof. Landers, on Reading, says read
ing is the fundamental foundation of
knowledge. Thought is the first thing
to be acquired. A great many pupils
become mere machines in reading.
Books should be composed of the best
of literature. For 2nd and 3d grade
readers should be supplied stories suit
able to their fancies, such as folklore,
fables, etc., especially Robinson Crusoe,
and its companions. Following this
come the classical myths; in 0th and
7th grades, reading of historical nature;
in 8th grade, readings from good gen
eral literature, especially the classics.

The last hoar cf the forenoon was de
voted to some one of our best institutional
of learning. A program was prepared,
lor this occasion, (sometimes consisting;
of a lecture by the president of the
college or a member of the faculty, and"
sometimes recitations, orations and.
music by those who have graduated'
from the college represented, or are still
in attendance. '
Do you ask which college morning was)
the best? I answer without hesitation,
the Chemawa Indian school was by far
the most interesting to me. The Indian
had been so well trained in the choice o
colors that all were dressed in quiet
tones instead of tfie giddy lines they are
wont to wear in their uncivilized state.

modest, unaffected and graceful. Every

one girl sing, that she was requested to
repeat her selections in the evening.
