favorable Idea of the magnitude of the

prise is in store for those visitors

few buildings arc actually finished
and when the thonsands assemble
Thursday at the Palace of Liberal
Arts, they will see on all sides the
great structures sufficiently advanced
to show what they -will loolt like when
finished. Just at present, however,
the workmen are mostly engaged In
removing debris and rubbing off the
rough edges of the picture so that
a pleasing view of the grounds may
be obtained. President Roosevelt
and the ambassadors of foreign na
tions will ride In the dedication pa
rade over asphalt drives and pass
between the finished facades of six
mammoth structures. A vast amount
of sculpture is in place in the main
court, and the flags of all nations are
being strung along the cornice line
of the finished buildings.
In many parts of tho city decorators
arc busy putting up flags and bunting
and within the next 24 hours the bus!

Judae S. A. Lowell Speaks of Ad
vantages to Country Pupils Under
New School Law.
In conversation with Judge Iwell
tho ropartor lonrned somo of tho de
tails or tho law which went Into effect
In this stnto February 17, providing
for tho transportation to school under
some conditions of puplla at the pub
lic oxponBo.
Tho school iKiard. by tho authority
of tho voters expressed at a legal
school meeting shall furnish transpor
tation to all pupils living at a distance
of two or more miles from the eehonl
hoiiRO, whllo the school board In Us
dlHcrotlon may transport at tho dis
trict's exponso pupils living within a
less dlstanco than two miles. Tho
school hoard mny also, In Its discre
tion, pay tho board of pupllH at some
point near tho school If such an ar
langemont will be cheaper for tho dis
trict than to pay mileage.
Tho school board Is authorized to
levy 11 tnx to carry out tho provisions
or tho liiHtructlmiB given It by tho pa
trons at tho regular meeting. The
school bonrd mny also on authority
vcHted In It by putrons at a regular

and nrrangn for transportation to aud
payment of tuition In an ndjolnlng

transportation to It to bo paid out of
tho common school fund, or, If author

In .Indue Ixiwcll's opinion, this law
will probably Increase the attendance
upon the Pendleton city schools and
also tho schools of all other towns
having graded schools and which
maintain a high avcnigo of educa
tional opportunities. Thousands of
children will bo given under this law
vastly hotter school facilities than
they had before, and at no greater ex
pense to tho taxpayers.
The advantage will nut by any
means bo 0110-sldod. It will bo recip

will bo groatly Increased as well as
tho school population, and every en
terprising, modern town can easily
arrange to reap a great boneftt from
