The aniiouiiceniunl that lleppuer
ill provide a beautiful public park
In the heart or the now lloppnor. Is
Tofronhlng. Public parks aro the
last and leant consideration in too
many Western cities. Tho cost of
preparing a park, little by llttlo, Is
.to small that It duos not stand in
thu way; It Is more u matter of neg
lect than cost that Is responsible for
tliB absence of parks in the West.

pleasure resort In the state, but there
fa absolutely no public place at pros
uit where the citizens may spend tho
Mtnimer evenings. Tho need or such
t public place Is being felt more keen
ly each year.
Tho schools ruports of Hnkor, Union
and Umntllla counties disclose some
Interesting facts.
While statistics are prosaic, they
aro the only true expression of con
ditions, and in order for one-half tho
world to know whnt tho other lmlt
Is doing and accomplishing In the
world. It Is necessary lo study
Ilaker county Is accredited with 5,
Ilir, children of school ago, and out
of this number lust year. l,:i!)S failed
to attend any school. Union county
has a school population of Ml!), "d
1,21(1 of this number wore not enroll
ed In school. Umatilla county has C
333 scholars and S81 failed lo got
their names on tho school registers.
This condition Is unfortunate in tho
extreme. The state owes caclt schol
ar a public school education. There
are laws on the statute books provid
ing that all children of school ago
must attend some school during the
year, and yet here aro 3,520 scholars
in three of thu most progressive
counties in Oregon, absolutely falling
to nttcud school.
Where are tho parentB, the schoul
directors and the superintendents?
How does this great number of schol
ars run tiie gauntlet of all the watch
ful and protective forces of the public
school system? Is there not a rom
cdy for this growing evil? Will pa
tents wantonly penult children to
grow up to become box car tourists
and brake beam artists? Will they
refuse to aceepl the proffered gift of
the Malt ?
Tine. Iti many districts the number
of scholars Is small and the school
house far removed from isolated
homes there are many excusable
cases, In this sparsely settled West
ern country.
Hut there seems to be no reasona
ble excuse for one-sixth of tho school
population of Eastern Oregon being
absent from the public schools. There
seems to be no good excuse for such
utter failure of the public school sys
tem to reach the very class for which
it Is Intended.
The common people undervalue the
benellts of an education, whore such
conditions exist. And one of the
first causes of this undervaluation Is
the false Idea growing among tins
people that a good education can
only be obtained away from homo.
This is a mistaken idea. As now
conducted, the public school system
can furnish an education equal to
nny of the great demands of busi
ness, and until this school is thor
oughly mastered, the scholar Is not
ready for the special school.
Eastern Oregon must look to her
public schools. Tills record should
not be repented.
The superior court of Walla Walla
has prepared a unique list of names
from tile citizens of tho "Garden i
City." This list consists of 27 com-1
mon drunks to whom uquor dealers
of the state are lorhlddcu to sell
"booze." Tile law regulating the con
duct of the drunkard Is severe ill
Washington. The penalty for viola
tion of this antl-"topor" provision Is
$50 for the first and $300 for subse
quent offenses. The poor men thus
publicly proclaimed to the world as
having "whlskoy lips." may visit the
saloons, gloat on the amber liquid in
tiie glasses, breath in tho life-giving
fumes and lean on the bar If thoy
wish, but hero their privileges stop.
Not a drop of the tantalizing stuff is
allowed to wet these 27 dry throats,
nor prepaie subjects for tho police
court. If this lnw is rigidly enforced,
it will put tile Keely cure people out
of business.
An advertisement for ::0i) men at 'i
per day and board, to work on tho
Solomon City railroad, appears In the
Nome Nugget of July S, which bus
Just been received. The usual sum
mer rush to the north seems to have
failed to materialize tills year.
Worklngmcii have come to realize
that It is better to stay In touch with
the civilized world. It is ii long way
between stations In Alaska.
It Is interesting to note the diet of
people In different parts ot tho world.
Among savages and uncivilized peo
ple, mostly raw foodB nre used. Lit
tle, If any cooking, Is done. Thoy son
orally subsist upon fruits, nuts, raw
meats and fish.
The Ksqulmnux live almost en
tirely upon meat. Tho most import
ant part of their diet Is fat and oil.
Sometimes thoy cat lichens, whHh
they obtain from tho stomach of the
loindeor. The llowor of tho Arrtle
poppy Is sometimes used ns food, liu'
very rarely. Thoy have no regular
time for eating, but cat whenever
thoy can procure tho food.
Tho Indians of the tomporate and
tropic zones havo n largor variety of
foods. Fruits, nuts, wild vegotnbles,
fish, wild fowl, and other game are
used by them ns food.
Tho negroes of tho Southern slates
have n very scant diet. It consists
principally of fat, salt pork, cornmoal
and molasses. Their cooking Is done
In the crudest sort of way. The
comment Is mixed with water and
baked on tho Mat surface of a hoe or
griddle. The pork is Bllced thin and
fried. Molasses Is sometimes milled
to the fat with tho cornbread. The
favorite bovorago consists of hot wa
ter Bweetencd with molasses. This
is gonornlly tho diet three times a
day during the year. Sometimes, how
ever, turnips aro boiled with the ba
con for n change. It Is a great treat
when they have tin opossum. Tills is
genuorally baked with sweet potatoes
and seasoned with red popper. Near
ly alt meats aro fried. It is notice

of them surfer from indigestion, which
is perhnps duo to their form ot diet.
The Mexicans subsist almost entire-1
ly upon vegetables, which they raise .
themselves. Those who can afford
It use Hour and corn. Generally more j
corn Is used than Hour, uno oi uie
most linportntit nrtlcles of their diet
Is the native bean, together with peas
and lentils. Another favorite article
of food with the Mexicans Is red poi
per or "chill." This is probably used
more lor Its stimulating effect upon
tho digestive orgnus than for any nu
trition which it contains.
I.ard Is sometimes, purchased and
used In considerable quantities with
vecotable foods: also, beef tallow.
The cooking Is generally done In an i
open llre-iilaco. Tho bonus are cook-1
ed In earthen-ware pots with a largo
amount of "chill" and lard added. Tho i
poor families in .Mexico serve the
meals on the Moor In tho middle of

forks nor spoons. The family sit on
