little thing to mention, but its the
little things that count, and its the
little things that some of the

liberately steal. The Journal has
set a good example.
The Oregonian is giving more
attention to the mining interests of
this section just now than ever be
fore. In the past, the Oregonian
has either been misinformed with
reference to the vaule of the mining
interest which lay in the back yard
of its office or else wilfully ignored
it. However the time has come
when the Oregonian cannot afford
to close her columns to the mining
industries of this section either
through ignorance of the true
worth, or disinclination to assist in
their development, especially when
its columns are overflowing with
Buffalo Hump literature.
Every road supervisor should
realize the responsibility imposed
upon him and do his duty. That's
one thing that has been the matter
with road work in Oregon. Super
visors, while no doubt, meaning
well, have been a trifle negligent
and at all times too lenient. Every
man who is in debt to the county in
the some of a road tax should pay
it in good honest work, and if he
isn't interested in good roads,
and manly enough to pay the
slight obligation which always re
verts to his benefit, the road super
visor should see that he does it
anyway. That's one of his duties.
In way of a mining item we
might mention that in the Bohemia
district is already to be found one
20-stamp, two 10-stamp, three
5-stamp, and two 2 stamp mills,
making a total of 47 stamps in oper
ation there at the present time, with
a number of others going in this
season. When it is taken into con
sideration that not one has failed to
pay a handsome profit on the in
vestment, its a pretty good showing.

such as the U of O, Portland University
State Agricultural College and 0. S. N.
S. at Monmouth. This association,
having become permanent, will meet
annually to renew the ties of friendship
of former school days, and at tho same
time give to each other and to this com
munity an educational inspiration.
At the close of tho work this year
these two organizations mot and
rendered a program at the Martin hall
to about 300 invited gueati. There were
many visitors and friends from other
schools in the state who speak in tho
highest terms of our schools.
The program consisted of vocal and
instrumental music, recitations and
short addieBses from members of the
Alumni. Each participant did justice
to his or her part. Space will not per
mit us to mention each part separately.
The main feature of the evening's en
tertainment however was a lecture by
Prof. E. II. McAlister of the U of 0.
Prof. McAliiter had chosen for his sub
ject, "The Age of Inquiry." There
could not have been a more appropriate
subject for the occasion. The speaker
held tho large audience in rapt atten
tion for about an hour. Each member
of the Alumni and the public generally
poke in the highest terms of Prof. Mc-
Alister's lecture. Indeed the Alumni
could not have made a better choice of
peakers this year, and many express
the idea of trying to secure him on
other like occasions if possible.
The people of Cottage Grove and
vicinity have reason to be greatly
pleased with the work done this year in
the public schools.
