The public school average In Pen

The policy of E. B. Conklln, as city
superintendent has made the schools
what they are. From a small, undis
ciplined high school of IT members
tour years ago, he has bunt up a
high school of the best standing,
mentally and physically of over 100
members, with a graduating class of
12 this year. If a fair estimate of
the work of the city superintendent
Is desired, a talk with patrons and
scholars Is recommended. In the
entire city, there is one unanimous
sentiment in favor of the policy and
the personality of E. B. Conklln, and
this spirit of hearty enthusiasm
which has gradually brought the
schools up to their present grade of
excellence, is due to iur. Conklln's
persistent, tireless efforts to make a
i school that would meet the require-
ments of the age. Not alone In text
books, but in by-education such as de-
bating, oratory, music, athletics and
literary work, outside of the regular
course, the Pendleton high school

MEN AS MACHINES.
Possibly some of my readers may
not be aware that the human body
forms an example of a machine which
yields a very large return of energy
In comparison with what Is spent
upon it in the way of fuel that is to
Physiologists calculate the work
done by the body In foot tons, a foot
ton of work being represented by the
energy required to raise one ton
weight one foot high. A hard-working
man in bis day's labor will develop
power, I suppose, equal to about 5000
foot tons, this amount representing
both the Innate work of his frame in
volved in the acts of living, and, in
his external muscular labor as a
hewer of wood and a drawer of wa
ter. A man's heart, In 24 hours, shows
a return equal to 120 foot tons; that
is, supposing we could concentrate
all the work of the organ in that
period Into one big lift, it would be
capable of raising 120 tons' weight
one foot high. Our breathing muscles,
in 24 hours, develop energy equal to
about 21 foot tons, and when we add
In the actual work of the muscles,

TRIBUNE ENDORSES STRAIN.
Taxpayers who were reading the
Morning Tribune two years ago will
remember the hearty support that pa
per gave C- P: Strain as comity as
sessor, and in the exuberance of its
spirits. at that time predicted his re
election despite the republican ma
jority in Umatilla county.
In Its Issue of July 17, 1902. the
Tribune printed the following compli
mentary notice of Mr. Strain's elec
tion over Mr. Buzan, warmly Indors
ed his policy, and prophesied his re
election In 1904:
" 'What the taxpayers want is a
man not afraid to do- the right thing,
regardless of railroad- passes, party or
personal prejudices,' etc., etc., etc.
If Mr. Strain, when he takes his of
fice next year, equalizes taxes on a
just basis there need be no fears of
his re-election agairo in the face of
a 400 or 500 republican majority."

Side Hill Combined
The latest Improved two-wheel, side-hill combined harvester has
proven a boon to wheat raisers. It Is 'he most successful, most
economical and easiest machine to operate ever built.
These hap-esters have been given abundant trials right here at
home and all users are highly pleased. None have been dissatisfied
and all are high in their praise.
The Holt side-bill harvester on a side hill Is able to stick to
the side of the hill, while the header will slip down the hill. The
main wheels are vertical, which braces the machine to the side
hills. It works equally adapted to level land.
The Holt harvesters are sold exclusively In this section by
