Maintaiu Strict Quarantine
Wallowa is taking every precaution
against the spread of smallpox. The
cases and all persons in any way ex
posed are closely quarantined. No new
cases have developed. ' The assertion in
the Sun that the News-Record made
caustic allusions to Mavor Morelock
and Dr. Gregg, in its report of the cases
last week, is a figment of Editor Jonas'
think-pan, and he has another think
coming. Tlfe News-Record hadn't the
least idea the report of smallpox at
Lostine originated in the Sun office and
did not say or intimate so. Why deny
so vigorously, Mr. Sun, before even accused?
ED1T0E DECLINES DEBATE. -
The editor of the News-Record has
received an epistle from C. H. Allen of
Flora, whose challenge to County
Judge O. M. Corkins was referred to in
a pleasant way in this paper recently.
A copy 01 the letter was published
the Flora Journal last week. Mr. Allen
evidently does not relish remarkr about
Ins original orthography. Notwith
standing his very low opinion of tiie
INews-lieConl editor he invites us "tti
debate with him. Wlitfo lie holds out j
the alluring promise to outdo G rover.
Cleveland in phrases that bring joy to
the heart of the paragraphia, yet his
letter as a whole so plainly show s the
need of a high school in at least one
case that the expenditure by the county
court for that institution is vindicated ;
thereforo the debate iff respectfully
declined. - .

how to do something better than any
body else, or should be made to become
mastei of some trade or proficient
in a profession. This can only be ac
complished by means of higher institu
tions of learning. Is there any reason
why the boys and girls of Wallowa
county should not enjoy the advantages
of a fully equipped and well maintained
high school? There is just as much
need of higher education in this county
as in any other. The children are just
as deserving and just as much is due
them as is due the children of any other
part of the state. The children of this
county will grow up to manhood and
womanhood, and will scatter out and
settle down in different localities
counties or states ai d it is then that
their educational qualifications will re
fleet for good or for'naVght upon the
locality in w hich they were schooled.
We must admit that the standard of
our community, the strength of our
government and the future greatness of
our people will depend upon the train
ing we give the boys and girls of today
and those yet to come. The respon
sibility or the . future rests upon tho-e
for whom our sohools are conducted.
We may go where we will and wherever
we find a community thnt. maintains a
well equipped and thorough school,
there we will find law-abiding indus
trious and progressive people. . There
is no better means bv which we can
determine the standing of a community
than by its educational facilities.
The establishing of the Wallowa
countv high school marks the begin
ning of a new period in the educational
affairs of the county, .. The . boys and
eirla are now civen -an oonortunitv
to receive their secondary schooling at
honip, nd, when they shall have
finished the work, here, thev will be
ready for college or professional training.
The work of the county high school
is broad In its scope, rour courses are
offered the classical, the scientific,
the English and the commercial. The
school will be equipped with a labora
tory for the studv of the sciences, and
agood library for use in connection with
the teaching of history and literature
will be installed as rapidly as the re
quirements demand. Manual training
will be made a part of the commercial
course, and music will be offered to all
those who wish to take it.
In cities where go od high schools are
ninintained, the per cent of eighth grade
graduates who pursuehigher education
is much greater than in towns where
Inadequate nigh school facilities are
offered. The same is true of a county.
Offer vour bovs and girls a good high
school where there isan opportunity
for some selective work and i'ew will
fail to pursue it.
The people of Wallowal county must
have confidence in tho county hiwh
sehool. They must take pride in the
school and manifest an interest in It.
They must impress upon the minds of
tho " children that the ' county high
school offers the same courses and just
as good instruction as does any aca
demic school in the state. Unless this
Is done the home school will be run
down and the distant school built up.
If our boys and girls are sent away to
high Fchool, or its equivalent, it means
a reduction in the home enrollment,
and more it means a lack of confidence
in the people to support in their midst
that which they must send elsewhere
to get at a greater cost. .. -
It costs money to maintain good
schools. It is quite ex pen site to put
up a laboratory for the study of physios
and other sciences. It takes money to
establish a library for the proper study
of history and literature, ana there is
no small expense attached to equipping
a school for carrying a commercial
course, for it mnst- be thorough. Yet
these are expenses necessarily attached
to equipping and maintaining a high
school of reputable rank and character.
The expense of building up such a
schoil is too great for any ordinary
town or district. The subject of higher
education should be of interest to every
parent and patron of the schools of
Wallowa county. It should be frely
aud thoroughly discussed and a wide
awake interest made manifest. Public
sentiment has much to do with the
hnilding of good schools. Every citizen
ninst feel an interest in the higfi school
and insist that the course of study and
the teaching be thorough and up-to-
date in every respect. Every parent
