FESTIVAL OF PLEASURE
HUGE JOINT PICNIC AT RICKRE
ALL WAS COMPLETE SUCCKSS.
Many Forms of Entertainment Pro
vided For the Thousand Who ".
Were There. :
The gigantic Joint picnic given by
the Artisans and the Polk County
teachers at Rickreall Saturday was a,
complete success. Not a drop of rain
fell, not a hitch, not an accident oc
curred to mar the . day's plethoric
round of pleasure. Thousands were
In attendance. Polk County was
there en masse . and Marlon and
Benton and "old Yamhill,", and even
Multnomah, were represented by : a
goodly throng of recreation seekers,
who helped to add toi the glory of
Klckreall as the home of the picnic
unsurpassable. By 7 o'clock in the
morning the people were beginning to
arrive on the grounds, and they kept
coming In constantly increasing num
bers until after noon. Tralnloads from
the west and from the east came and
wended their way along the winding
road and they came In automobiles
and they came In by hacks and in
buggies from everywhere, and they
were glad they were there and pitied
those few who were no.t. No such vast
number of people has ever attended
any similar attraction in this part of
Long famous for the Blze and at
tractiveness of their annual gatherings,
the Artisans, assisted by the teachers,
far exceeded all previous records and
set a mark that they to borrow a
phrase used by the State Superintend
ent will have to "go some" If they
beat next year.
There was no lack of amusement 6r
of entertainment. The literary pro
grams were unusually replete, the
sports were abundant and lively, and
the conventional and time-honored
concessions were there to contribute
to the universal festivities. Every
time you hit the cowbell you got a
cigar; for every ring that could be
thrown over the goose s heaa yuu tot
another cigar, worse limn tne first;
and for f)''p cent each you couluj
throw cold-storage eggs at a suppo
sitious negro's head. It did not hurt
the extremely colored ge'man, but did
help raise the price of a staple farm
Nothing contributed more to the
enjoyment of the picnic, "nothing was
more universally admired or more
generally or more deservedly praised,
than the Dallas band. Their music
struck the popular fancy, and al
though they played many selections
the cry was still for more, and the
neat uniforms and fine individual ap
pearance of its members won com
The event of the morning was the
graduating exercises of the eighth
grade classes of Polk County the
largest similar class ever assembled in
the state, comprising, as it did, some
thing like 175 members. The appear
ance of. that proud and happy band
was an Inspiration in itself. Beneath
the tapering firs and the broad and
over-arching maples that canopied
the scene, they stood in silent ex
pectancy, awaiting that recognition of
their studious labors which custom
has decreed. No one could gaze upon
those bright young faces and say that
the common school system of Oregon
is a failure. Not one who looked up
on them but inwardly resolved that
that system should be encouraged and
extended and broadened, that those
young learners might not be hindered
In their search for the solution of the
mysteries that lie before them, but
that schools for the people, of the
people and by the people might not
perish from the arth.
State Superintendent's Address.
After a vocal duet, "Come Jose

by Miss Jean Mclnturff and Miss
Lorette Shore, of the Monmouth high
school. County Superintendent H. C.
Seymour introduced State Superin
tendent L. R. Alderman, who spoke

Hood trying to talk to the State of
Oregon, but If you will bear witn me

and I will try to make myself heard.
did not expect to meet so many
people as I find here today. It seems
to me that this is a move In the right
line. It shows progress. We are so
cial beings. We have need to encour
age this side of our nature. The ag
ricultural commission appointed by
President Roosevelt to inquire into
the conditions of the rural communi
ties, reported that one of the reasons
why a large part of the people are
flocking into the cities from the coun
try wa. on account of the lack of so
cial opportunities In the country. And.
after looking upon the great numbers
of people before me here today, I feel
that this condition 1. not going to ex
ist in Polk County.
Fear. Were Groundless.
"One of the reasons why we have
gathered here today is to witness the
graduating exercises of the largest
class of eighth grade graduates that I
class ever graduated- In Oregon."
The ChatauquA Salute. -
And when the class proudly stood
in review, their chins held hish, their
hearts throbbing with the glory of it,
their class colors fluttering in the
morning breeze, th vast assemblage
gave the "Chatauqua salute" with
hearty good will and the waving of
"There are localities," said Super
intendent Alderman, as the class re
sumed their seats, "that are prouder
of their livestock than they are of
their boys and girls. I recently had
occasion to visit a large farm given up
to the raising of fine stock. The owner
took me about from one place to an
other of his land and pointed out
the numbers of fine stock that he pos
sessed. He proudly pointed them out
one by one and told me their records.
their histories and their values. He
told me their ages and their various
characteristics, all of which he had at
his finger tips. When we had made
the rounds, and were returning to the
house, I said to him. How many
children have you?'
Tliey Were Thoroughbreds.
"'Well, well,' he stammered, 'Let
me see. There's nine nine, I think.
"'How old Is this one?' He didn't
know. But he did know the age of
the next one, because one of his thor
oughbred cows had died the, day the
child was born. '
" 'Is it fitting that you know more
about your cows than you do about
your boys and girls?' I asked him
" 'Yes, but you see these cows are
"I hope to see the time come in this
country when we will think more of
our boys and girls than we do of our
"I am expected to speak to the
class, and to give them advice. There
are lots of things that can be said to
a graduating class. It Is so easy to
give advice. It is 'easier to give ad
vice to 20 people than it is to be one
of the 20 to follow the advice. But
I do not feel the task very heavy.
They do not need much advice. They
have already received sufficient. But
I do want to congratulate them upon
the fact that they are here that they
have graduated from the great public
school system of ' the Nation; that
they are here numbered among the
great body of 17 millions of pupils,
Hope of the Nation.
"We are apt to be' pessimistic after
reading the papers. We are apt to get
the blues. We think that maybe this
government of ours , cannot endure.
I want to tell you, men and women,
that if you could go with me over the
State of Oregon you would witness
classes of young men and women
graduates all over the states There
you would get the opposite side of the
picture. The 72,000 boys and girls of
Oregon are going to make this state
what it should be. They are going to
carry on the work of our forefatners.
"We should believe in training the
mind-so that we may be enabled to
make this government the best possi
ble government that can be made,
It Is better to raise all of the people
an inch than It is to raise a few of the
people a mile, and that is what the
public schools of this state are going
try to do. If democracy means any
thing, it means opportunities for all
alike for the poor as well as the rich.
Flixt Indian Graduate.
"I notice we have In our class a
native of this country (referring to a
bright young Indian graduate from
the Grand Ronde school, "and I
want to congratulate you as the first
graduate in the public schools of Or
egon in the eighth grade. May God
speed you on your way!
"We have here something like 175
graduates of the eighth grade. I want
to say to them that we, their friend.,
parents and well-wishers, are here to
do them honor. That they have It
largely In their power to do what they
want to do. We are going to try to
help them to try to be what they want
to be. It is a great thing to know
that any person can fix an Ideal and
be able to attain it. Fix that ideal
high. Then by work rach your Ideals.
We will not be satisfied ln their not
attaining their highest ideals. We
want them to value time, for time is
the thing of which life is made. We
want them to believe in pluck. We
want you to have pluck, grit and de
termination. You may be what you
would be. We want you to be the
best that you can be.
"I want to congratulate the people
of Polk County upon the fact that you
are going to have other gradea within
the reach of these boys and girls. You
voted at the last election to provide
means for a high school fund. It is
a worthy ambition of your County
School Superintendent to have a high
school within the reach of every pu
pil in the county.
"Some one with a gen I us-for figures
has estimated that the earning capac
ity of an eighth grade graduate Is
$500 per year. That may appear a
large sum, but when you come to re
alize that bacon Is SO cents a pound,

how much spring hats are worth, be

Prefer Band Concert,
By way of atoning for this action,
and for the purpose of assisting Dal

time adding to the social gaiety of the
city on Saturday nights during the
summer months, the Club enthusias
tically paved the way for weekly con
certs to be given on the court house
plaza, and In order to back up its the
ory that such entertainments would
be of value to the town, the Club
voted to contribute the sum of $10
toward the cost of each performance,
the remainder of the amount required
to be made up by popular subscrip
tions. A committee consisting of R.
E. Williams, W. A. Ay era and C. L.
Crlder was appointed to solicit the
subscriptions. Manager J. L. White,
of the Oregon Power Company, offer
ed to furnish gratis the necessary
electric lights and current for the
concerts if the band would provide
At the suggestion of R. B. Wil
liams, Manager White presented to
the consideration of the members of
the Club a project of providing the
main business streets with the latest
and most successful form of cluster
lights, such as are being adopted by
most of the leading towns. His plan
Included the installation of 25 iron
posts, to be placed on Main street,
between Oak and Washington, and on
Mill and Court near Main, and for
half a block on the north and south
sides of the court house . plaza. On
behalf of the company he offered to
donate $50 toward the cost of install
ation, and to provide for the mainte
nance and to furnish the current at a
cost of about $1 per month per mer
chant. The matter was referred to
the board of managers for consideration.
The Club is making strenuous ef

Iron Sulphate Spray Said To Remove
'Them From Iawm,
WILLAMINAS NEXT SUNDAY
If you follow the appended direc
tions, you will be able to kill all the
dandelions in your lawn without dig
ging It full of holes or keeping a man
busy for several days at considerable
expense. Furthermore, the weeds
will stay killed. Of course; if your
neighbor's lawn is full of ripened
seeds, in the course of time yours will
be re-seeded. This, however, will not
be difficult to manage. '
The chemical used is Iron sulphate.
A 100-pound sack will last quite
while. Obtain a small hand sprayer
of brass, with glass, wooden or rubbei
fittings. Iron or other metals are soon
eroded. Put the well-mixed solution,
after carefully straining It, into the
sprayer at the rate of two pounds of
the chemical to one gallon of water,
Pump up the sprayer till you get in
the neighborhood of 100 pounds pres
sure to the square inch. If you cannot
obtain that pressure to a certainty,
pump as much as you can, for on the
pressure depends the success of t.ie
work. Have a small hose attached to
the sprayer, on the end of which is
brass tube about three feet long with
the nozzle on the end of it. Hold the
nozzle about six to eight Inches from
the ground and apply the mixture to;
the lawn. The spray should not be
used as a sprinkle, but as a very fine
mist, to be effective.
The chemical will turn the tips of
the grass black, but this will not last
long, for one clipping will remove it
Old and large heads may require
second spraying to completely remove
them, but usually one treatment will
completely get rid of the pest, says
writer in the' Oregonian. Along with
the dandelions, all rough leaved
plants will go too, leaving only the
grass to grow. "
The principle on which the results
are obtained is simply that the grass,
being a smooth, waxy-leaved plant,
does not hold the poisonous chemical
on its blades. It falls off, but remains
on the rough surfaced dandelion and,
If the spray is line enough, attacks
the plant on the under side, entera in
to the pore, and poisons the plant
root and branch. Clover, being
rough surfaced plant, is affected like
In applying, do not let the chemical
or spray come in contact with, good
clothes, iron, building, or' cement
sidewalks, for all are discolored more
or less , Strain the mixture before
you put it in the sprayer and do not
be alarmed if you lawn looks black
for a short time. It will recover

Fred Elliott, who has bwn taking

believes that the scare about a short

last Saturday evening, to a fairly good

ed by Director U. S. Grant The band
boy. had been on duty all day at the
Rickreall picnic, and were somewhat
fatigued, but they did well and their
effort, were appreciated.
At the last meeting of the Com

gage the band for regular weekly
concerts throughout the summer, and
beside, pledging $10 per week from
the Club, a committee consisting of
R. E. Williams, W. A. Ayre. and C. I

amount required. The Idea proved
popular from the first, and the bus!

Is now assured that the concerts will
be given regularly each Saturday
night on the plaza from now until

holding the concerts has met with
universal favor, and they will draw
big crowds throughout the Mason.

OF FISH NEAR FALLS CITY,
Unique Project Carried On Amid En

J. B. Teal's square mile of ranch
near Falls City contains - numerous
springs, one of which ha has made
good use of In the.- construction of a
trout hatchery. One artificial lake la
divided in half by a low wall, over
which is a board walk. On one side
are rainbow trout three years old,
some of them 14 Inches in length.
Dr. Starbuck and Fred Toner, of Dal
las, each caught some of the larger
ones, Sunday. On the other side are
6,000 small speckled trout from the
Clackamas government hatchery. To
see ' the water "alive" with ' these
beautiful fish is a most attractive
sight ' Mr. Teal feeds them with a
spoon of good size, and none of them
are allowed to go .hungry.
The hatchery building, snuated at
