A Student Explains tho Advautaceu uf tha
Corvali.1!, Oregon, AugUkt 111. 1S91
EUITOK OltKOON tL'OUT:
As the time draws uear when I lie
young people of Union county begin
to think of educational mutter, and
the question of going uway to bchool
is briug agitated, allow me to ay a
few words iu behalf of the Agricultural
I am under the impression that if
Eanteru Oregon people were better
aware of the merits of this institution
they would not be so poorly represent
ed here. For any industrious boy or
girl no better advantages for securing
an education could be desired. Here
they inay receive the best instruction
in the majority of htudies which tend
to expand aud cultivate the mind, not
only agriculture and all things per
taining to a thorough knowledge of
l hie important tcience, together with
the kindred arts, as chemistry, botany,
horticulture, physiology, zoology, en
tomology, etc., are taught, but also
mechanical training is given aud liter
ary studies are pursued as well.
Young ladies are received and placed
on an equal footing with the boys.
Bpeeial courses have been prepared
for them by substituting domestic
economy for agriculture. Domestic
economy comprises sewing, cooking,
millinery, care of the sick, special
hygiene, chemistry of food, social
etiquette, etc. Young ladies may tako
the agricultural or the B. S. course if
they prefer to do so. Some pcoplo
seem to he under tho impression that
because this is an agricultural college,
nothing is taught but agriculture and
domestic economy. Now this is a very
great mistake, as will soon be per
ceived by any one who will tako tho
trouble to read our course of study.
Literary subjects are not neglected,
but on the contrary receive hpecial
attention. Three languages, French,
Lutin and German, are taught. The
agricultural colleges not only teach the
same subjects as are taught in the uni
versities, but they have additional
facUitiet for teaching agriculture and
Military drill is another feattuu of
the college course, and the boys arc all
required to wear a uniform of cadet
grey during school hours. The uni
forms are procured at the college and
cost about if 10. The department of
military Bcience will be placed under
charge of a United States army ofDcer
tli is year. The students are divided
into companies and are commanded
by cadets ehosen for their proficiency
in drill, scholarship and deportment.
Every student is required to perform
ono hour's compulsory labor, every
day, on the farm, garden or grounds,
aud thin labor is made instructive as
far as possible. During the rainy
season, in the winter, the compulsory
hour is worked in tho shops.
A large, commodious, new boarding
hall is Wing erected, which will ac
commodate about 150 boys. Tho dor
mitory formerly used by tho boys is
being repaired and will hereafter be
occupied by tho young ladies. This
will accommodate about 50 girls.
Board can be obtained for $2.60 per
week, and washing 35 cents. Tho
rooms are furnished with bedstead,
mattress and pillowc, chairs and wash
eUind. Everything ontsido of t this
must be furnished by the students.
Tuition h 5 per term, or flS per
year. HtudeuU holding appointments
havo free tuition. A preparatory de
partment is attached to the college for
the benefit of those who are sufficient
ly advanced to enter the college
The course which a student receives
here girts him an insight into the
naturo of the ehjecta and forcru with
which ho has to dual, and tho general
education is such as tends to rnako
useful and intelligent eitlieus; which
oulllvaUs the tatus of the student and
onahlts hint to giro expression t hfi

V.biiiNiiTON, August II, 1891.
EniTon OitiaioN' Scout:
There is more bustle tit tho head
quarters of-the fanners' alliance this
week than at any other place in
Washington. This was partly owing
to the fact that the Maryland alliance
held its third annual convention in
Baltimore during the first half of the
week, and that at its dote many of
those who attended came over to
headquarters. The action of that
bod iu uuanimously endorsing the
Ocala platform as well as its refusal to
endorse the democratic nominee for
governor, seemed to meet with
general approval, although those who
ought to know say that Brown will
receive the votes of most of the Mary
land alliance, because it was tho al
liance that compelled the democrats
to nominate him. Tho Maryland al
liance claims that it will certainly con
trol the next lcgUhiluro which will
elect two U. S. senators, but that upon
certain conditions it. may allow Sena
tor Gorman to be re-elected.
Among tho visitors to tho alliance
headquarters was Col. 11. C. Uom
ming, Secretary of the l'ennsylvania
Industrial Union, who came to com
plete arrangements to havo Senator
Poller and Representative .lorry Simp
sen address the Pennsylvania fanners
on the 21st inst. at Mount Gretna. Ho
reports that the alliance and kindred
organizotions will number 5)0,000 in
that ktate before next November, and
that they will vote practically unani
mous against either or both tho old
parties whenever it becomes necessary
to protect their rights.
It is rather a curious thing, but
nevertheless true, that several Chilians
located temporarily iu Washington
manage to get news from Chili that
America's most enterprising newspa
pers do not lcceivej this is particularly
so as regards tho prompt denial of any
news that the newspapers do obtain
that happens to be against tho inter
ests represented by thebo enterprising
manipulators of tho grape vine tele
graph, which it seems has had a cable
attachment added since the days that
it was constantly burdened with full
details of battles which wero never
fought and victories which wero nover
won. Barnum was right when ho
said that Americans liked humbug,
but Mr. BarMUtn dealt in clever hum
bugs, whilo this sham is so transparent
that it fools no one.
Can Chinese visit tho World's Fair
at Chicago? is n warm weather prob
lem that oflicials of the treasury de
partment havo been wrestling with.
China was, of course, invited to tako
part in the exposition, as wan every
other nation with which wo hold
diplomatic relations, and now the in
quiry has been made of tho treasury
department whether citizens of China
who may desire to visit tho World's
Fair are to he allowed to land in the
face of tho positive prohibition of it
contained in tho anti-China law.
Acting Secretary Nottleton, ufter
giving considerable thought to tho
subject, has rofcrrcd it to the attorney
gencial, preferring to havo an oflicial
opinion as to what solution he should
mako of the problem. Ono thing is
clcaly apparent, wo cannot expect tho
government of China to take oflicial
part in tho exposition if wo refuso to
allow its citizens to visit it at their
pleasure. Tho Chineso government
lias not roplied to tho invitation of the
United States, further than to semi u
formal notification that it has been
received, and it may bo that its agents
have instigated this inquiry, so that
it may know hoforo accepting or de
clining what treatment its citizens iuo
to expect from us.

in tho Hills.
On Tim: Kanhk, Aiium It! ls'll.
EniTOit Oiikodn Scour:
If you will allow nio space, 1 will
give you a few itenw from the r.in,e.
1 came out. fioin Missouri last spring
and iiavo been camping out on the
range of Lookout, mountain all sum
mer for the benefit of my hc.ilih, anil
with the advantages of the lu e-ing
mountain air and tho purest und cold
est water that the world all'ords, I f. '1
my health very much iniprovi d, m l I
believe many people who are in d'-h-catu
health and confuted iu close,
warm rooms would find much more
relief out in the mountains during tho
.sunshine mouths than they do in
I havo fallen in love with the moun
tain country aud think it far ahead of
Missouri for many dilleron ton tcrpriscs.
The range is line on tho Powder river
and Burnt river slopes, and the many
herds of cattle, horses and sheep aro
in lino condition, aud I bulieve this
will bo a lino stock range for many
years to come.
I havo boon camping with -Mr. Ben
Longloy's Bheop herder part of tho
time, and as it does not iteem custom
ary to ask names among taiigers in
this country, I will just call iiun Bob,
ns tho other boys call him. Anyway
Bob is n jolly, good fellow and I have
become very much attached to iiiiu,
as he has takon so much interest iu
making mo tcel iu comfort around
camp. I havo not only appreciated
his company this summer, but his fry
ing pan, bread and wild meats from
tho mountains which lie is so handy
in preparing for table use, and various
kinds of us line vegetables as soil
could produce, from Mr. Frazier's
garden iu Eagle valley.
Mr. Fred Frazer has been tending
camp for us this summer. Fred al
ways gets around about the right time
and Bob and I always furnish him a
warm reception when ho comes with
Peggy tho pack mulo.
Mr. Oscar Smith, n young gontlo
liian from Coos county, has boon our
guost part of the time. Oscar is n
pleasant fellow and we havo passed
many jokes this summer. I think if
I could stay with Bob another month
I might mako ii very good shoporcL
1 am informed that herding sheop is
looked upon as a low occupation in
this country. Will somo ono tell mo
why, as I may herd nwhilo myself
should my health continue to improve
I cannot seo any disgrace in herding,
and do not think any kind of labor
disgraceful. Iu fact I think thoro is
moro truo life in labor than anything
else, and 1 believe tho honest laborers
are un honor to thoso who stand back,
dopending on tho working man or
waiting for somo good luck to turn up.
A man with a few thousand sheop
trusted to his euro 1 think holds a very
honorable position, und if nil tho bord
ers aro like Bob, I cannot find any
fault with them,
Messrs. Longloy and Fruzier havo
the finest band of mutton sheop that
I havo seen, and any one wishing to
purchase might do woll to seo them,
us they are for sale.
Tun Okkoon Scout has beon a wol
come visitor to mo during my lonely
hours, und wishing much bucccsb to
it, will soon bring my letter to a close.
I must say that I havo enjoyed the
summer splendidly and this camp life
iu western lifo Indeed that we tender
feet in Missouri aro so often Interested
In reading about, uud I will probably
make Oregon my home,
