The word telegraph means an in
strument that writes at a distance.
This art was invented by S. F.B.Morse.
The telegraph is now used commer
cially as well as for pleasure. The
physics class, after several days of
study of the instruments, have erected
a set in the science room and its ad
joining room, the shop. Both the
physics class and the science class
are learning the principles of the
thing which has made the commercial
world what it is. This kind of work
in school is what is needed as much
as any, because it is the practical ap
plication of the work. Sending and
receiving are the things enjoyed
most by the students, of whom some
are making rapid progress on both
ends of the line.

ODE TO THE BOBBED
(The one who has been putting
this string of "pomes" in the paper
found this ancient manuscript in his
trunk the other day. It is just pub
lished to give his sentiment when
the roached manes come in style.)
Oh! woe be to our little burg.
We simply stand and stare,
When one from Irrigon has caught
The craze and bobbed her hair.
Hgt, lo! the styles are changing fast.
The maidens used to wind
Their pretty hair in ear-puffs and
In corkscrew rolls behind,
nut now the shears have clipped these
From off her lovely head,
And now the rolls of hair and puffs
And all the rats are dead.
Not oft you see the curls worn long
And pretty any more.
Good bye! you pesky hairnets which
Are always getting tore.
The friv'lous girls are marching off
To bob-her shops each day
Oblivion has come to sweep
The long hair all away.
They look like youngsters, ten years
With shortened bangs and curls,
And don't appear to be among
The elder high school girls.
And while we wish again for puffs,
Those dainty puffs of yore,
And forced to say bobbed hair is cute,
Deliver us from more. W.W.
