XKWS OF THE WEEK-
La Grande, Mny 2", 1DS7.
Our city school closed to-day, and
to-mormw will have a grand picnic at
Oro Dell or on the. mountains, to cele
brate the event.
School began in September and for
eight months the bell lias been ring
ing and the children have been going
and coming with books in hand some
merry and koine sad, but now they arc
all glad, fur the outdoor attractions an
niu.-li greater than those within, du
ring this lovely spring weather.
1 think newr before since the first
school opened in La Grande, has hot
ter Vork been accomplished witlt the
children than during the last year, and
never before litis the attendance been
s-o large, during the winter term, and
at this time more than ISO are in ac
Prof. J. II. Mclntyro, who is a grad
uate of Colby College, Maine, is the
principal, and having liad several year's
experience as a, teacher hero in the
West, seems to be completely master
of the situation, both as disciplinarian
and instructor, and from him the "big
boys" have learned more things than
one. In his room, which is the High
school department, everything moves
along like clock work, with no apparent
etl'oj t on 1 lis part.
In charge of the Grammar depart
ment is Mrs Dora Scott, who litis taught
a number of years in Ohio before com
ing West, and for two years in this
school. Mrs. Scott lias the reputa
tion of being of superior merit for im
parting instruction, but she holds tho
reins with a rather loose grasp, and as
a consequence tho principal is often
called in to administer discipline.
The Intermediate grade is now pro
sided over by Mrs. Nellie Watson, who
during tho pafcl yenr luis heen teaching
in Union, but when Mrs. Hughes re
signed about a month ago, enmo here
to take her place. Mrs, W. is a teach
er of considerable experience, having
taught in several of the eastern stales,
before coming here. She seems to be
a very successful teacher, but is some
what nervous and exacting in the
school room, and a a consequence the
scholars do not like her quite so well
at first as they would one who was
more lenient with them.
In the Primary department is Mrs.
Wellnian, who, having no children of
her own, seems perfectly at homo
among tho fifty-seven little folks who
belong in her room. Eor ten years
Mrs. Wellnian taught in the Primary
schools o Portland, and with that ex
perience, added to a natural adaptabil
ity for the work, she makes a complete
Whether or not theso teachers have
been engaged for another year we do
not know, hut it seems as though they
ought to be retained, for good teach
ers are not always to be found.
On last Thursday night, Mr. Andrew
Dray died of dropsy of the heart, after
being confined to his bed for two weeks.
Mr. Dray was 72 years old. and an old
resident of La Grande, and had accu
mulated considerable property here
and elsewhere, which he leaves to his
three sons, of whom Henry Dray of
thto place is the youngest. His funer
al took place on Saturday, conducted
hy iho .Masons, at which time quite a
number of tho order were present from
other placet), and a largo procession
followed his remains to the grave.
Tho Uaptists raised tho new hell in
to the bell-tower of their church, yes

their church down here, but have not
yet furnished the money.
