IuriiiE the war the r rowers of

was that the hops fru;i tins -late
cot a very bad name in Kru'land
but "everythhiK went" then, on
aeeonunt of the world scarcity and
the conseciuent hfi'h pri-e.
Hut the Kngliidi dealers will be
ve.ry particular from now- on. and
they will absolutely rejert dirty
hops. )nrinp the past few months
a large grower la the .ab-m dis
trict has been oblired to art'lally
tear open bales of hops of last
year's crop arid employ women to
pick them over. and tlu-ri put
them up acain in new bales, in or
der to pet by in the fillinc of order-,
from Kn eland.
Mr. Cornoyer sav? there will not
be that much consideration shown
in handling the new crop, hv the
Hnrlinh buyers. They w ill demand
clean hop.
This has generally been carried
out satisfactorily, but a rude
shock has been administered dur
ing the past season I y the care
lessness of the cultiw'ition and
disgiaeeful picking If this is
the result of making contracts
for a term of years, it is a ruin
ous and short sighted policy.
Whether value is higher or lower
at time of delivery should make
no difference. Muyers here do
not speculate but pas all rn"

Unless your growers realize this
they had better give up the bus
iness. Doling the period your
country ha. been dry, Oregon and
Washineton hop gtowers would
have been driven out but for the
llnlish brewers, and it is as well
for them to remember this. Such
hops as those sent on contract the
Inst season are not wanted here
and are entirely unsalable It
kills the demand for tiirthtr sup
plies. "The continent of Europe :s
also a lare producer. In Kel
gium. Krance and Cermanv the
conditions are fully realized that
tood clean picked hops are ab-
t ii 1 1-1 y necessary, and they study
the Kntrlish buyers accordingly.

that can be alleviated or even
cured; and America is today cen
turies ahead of all the rest of the
world in treating thes-j who are
the victims of a he redity that ih'-y
cannot e-scape.
Not all are born deaf, though
sometimes it is a family propen
sity. There are four children in
the- Salem school from one family;
all four were born deaf, though
the ir parents were both of normal
healing. Hut somewhere, there
seems to be a malignant strain
that affe-cts the dellvate hones of
the ear. or the nerves or brain pro
cesses that give the faculty oT
hearing and Its kindred gift of
speech. Statistic.-: show that only
about per cent of the children of
two deaf parents, will carry the
affliction of deafness in their own
person; though tho tendency may
persist' for many generations.
Three children from another ap
parently normal Oregon home,
and two from yet another, tell
how the burden may sometimes
tall heavily with no apparent rea
son for it.
Of the children in the Salem
school, many are deaf from the
ravages of disease Iti early child
hood. Scarlet fever, spinal menin
gitis, infantile paralysis, even
measles and sometimes mechani
cal accidents, bring maany chil
dren to the school.
The school work was thrown
open to the public. Tuesday, and
a large number of visitors were
in attendance. H'm hard to realize
that the happy, brteht-faced girls
and boys, playing almost as If
they were from any other school,
are afflicted. They have been re
dec'ined until one almost misses
the tragedy that has been lifted
from their lives by the humane
kindliness of this America of ours
-"the land of the free and the
home of the brave" and the lov
ing. The class work of the tiniest
folk In thei school shows some of
the: problems that have to be
sohcil. The child can not hear a
sound: can riot form any connec
tion between forms and Ideas.
One cannot tell, by word of mouth
-- tlu? childish brain has no point
of contact with the life around It
It is like- a famishing creature in
a cage, seeing, smelling, fcelin:
the foods outside, but unable to
ri'.irh them, though starvation en
sues. One may sometimes be vexed
at the ceaseless questioning of tlu
normal, healthy child. Why and
whe re, and how. and who. are the
chill's roads to Informal ion. Hut
thv're closed to the poor little
ihibl that can't ask the magie
questions, can't hear the wonder
ful answers, but rnti.f 'it. ghost I.
sib nt. no know ing ve-n how to
ask a question, not aide to inte-r-pref
an answer-- and y-t with the
same' seething interest in things
that other children have. Men go
to prison for the rri;nes they com
mit, anel some people mourn over
them for the thing that they did
in Iheir mature understanding of
the penalties that they must pay;
but th'-se poor little folks are In
a far more frightful prison, for
no fault that they ever committed,
and the re is no pardon except hi
the mercy of God in the hearts
of men who will learn to bring
theai relief.
There are no large classes Jn
the. deaf school. The teachers
have to make their work personal
The firsf Iesori is to select com
mon objects, like a bail, a doll,
a book, a marble, anel by repeated
forming of the words wjth the
lips, teach them to understand the
lip sjeecb. Sopje sounds have
to he learned through the pupil
touching the lips, or the chin, or
the throat of the teacher, and
learning the significance of tbe
vibrations. The pupil must learn

The school closed 10 days ago,
and some of the students have
returned to their homes almost
all over the I'nited States. But

cause the boats are not running s
between the state and Alaska. j;
At least, not enough . of . tbeut. j'
