Management of Event Satisfied With , Outcome of Undertaking Next ' Sale December 18. More than a hundred farmers from outside the city attended the second monthly market day, held in this city on Saturday afternoon, and from the interest they displayed in the auction sale and the transfer of many farm necessities it is evident that the first sales day under the auspices of. the Commercial club presages very suc cessful ones to roiiow. , me attend ance was not as large, perhaps, as it would have been had good weather prevailed, but those who did attend will greatly help to make the day a teuccetes in the future. Walter u. Tooze, Jr., started the auctioneering, . and was relieved, after he had sue- cesBfully consummated several sales " by Mr. Phillip, whose efforts went toward disposing of everything from cider presses to diao harrows and livestock. The Burk feed barn, where the sale was held, presented a lively ap pearance about the time the band concluded its concert in the early af ternoon. The list or articles that had previously been prepared was greatly increased by wares that came in at the last minute, and there was such a variety as would please most any buyer. , Many of the attendants came in, according to their own word, "just to see how things were go ing," and these are the people who will be' an important part of the gathering at the next sales day. The prices at which many useful articles changed hands were almost ridicuous ly low, and when that information be comes widelv known there will be , another feature to the sales day that should attract additional visitors. Many Dallas people were interested spectators at the sales and not a few of them took part in the bidding. . F, E.. Davis, chairman of the sales day committee and sponsor for the venture, says: "lor the lirst gener- al market day I consider this one a marked success. We cannot expect . an unlimited attendance to begin ""with, but I feel sure that the inter- L est already manifested will grow, un til by next month the sales day will prove itself a valuable addition to community activity. , By reason of the fact that Christ mas this year falls on the last Satur day of the month, the next Sales day will be held on December 18. One expression of appreciation of the market day heard on Saturday was that of a well-known farmer. . "As-long as any trade center helps me to find a market for the crops of ' my land, or the products of my labors, ' just so long will I continue to re ' timi to that trade center the money that I derive from the sale of these things. ' When the community fails to ttsist me toward prosperity there is So longer any obligation or necessity for me to patronize the merchants of 'hat community and I will search for mittkets more advantageous to me." dinner as a guest of Sheriff Orr. Cor nell was arrested some time ago for issuing checks on his brother's bank, where he had no funds. At first the brother insisted on prosecution, but has relented and said be would send a cash bail so that Cornell could take the holiday dinner in freedom. Instead of sending the cash he said he would sign the bail bond. Sheriff Another Tale Charges That Domestic TWO STORIES AFLOAMARD ATTITUDE TOLD HILLMAN KILLING ATTRIBUT- .. ED TO WHISKEY.

Those incarcerated are William Wilson, Harold Gano, Charles Seymour, John Taylor, William Cas sidy and Andrew Mode. These boya have been repeated offenders at the school house religious meetings, and have been warned on other occasions by the district attorney, to stop their Sunday disturbances. An extra sup- ply of smartness was displayed at the meeting a week ago, and the boys were arrested.

Seven deaths were caused by cancer, one by diphtheria, five by tuberculosis. Mill Closes for Repairs. For tbe first time in a year the large sawmill plant of the Willamette Valley Lumber company, closed for a Tew days for repairs.

Another crew of men is en- gsged in making another drive down the same stream. High to Give Play. The students of the junior and sen ior classes of tbe Monmouth high school will present a play, "The Freshman," ea Deeember 2. The proceeds are to ge as a payment oa the new piano that tbe students pur chased last year. (By J. A. Churchill) That the people living m the rural districts of Oregon care more for their schools, are working harder to give their boys and girls a practical education; and have made a greater advance than any other state, is clear ly proved by tbe reception which , has been given the rural school, exhibit at the Panama-Pacific i International exposition..-. . .. s- ,.:; At the request of the National Bur eau of Education, the Oreg State Department or. Education prepared for the educational Dalace an exhibit showing the strongest features pit Ae rural schools of Oregon; namely, the standard plan, ; the Boys ' and Girl 's Club -Work and the Playground move ment. As the rules of the Education al building would not permit chil-. dren's work to be exhibited, the sys tem was shown by means of charts r and photographs. -Inje official bul letin of the Bureau ofTfitucation, they are mentioned as "unusually attrac tive colored views, illustrating rural school work. " More than 2,000 of the leading ed ucators representing all the states,""-, and many foreign countries have - J made a caretul study of the Uregon ' exhibit with the purpose of adopting some part of it. Three counties of California have adopted our standard school plan absolutely, and through the local press of their counties, the educational leaders have given Ore gon credit for helping them. W. E. Cole, chairman of the Educational Committee of the Farm Bureau for Napa county, California, in a letter of appreciation, says after telling of a meeting of their county education al officials, ','A standard school was adopted after tbe Oregon plan. . , We have kept the local press informed of our work. No doubt every county in California having a farm adviser will very shortly follow our lead."- At the anual teachers' institute of Monterey county,, the county , superintendent, George . Schultzburg, brought ,the teachers to the Oregon exhibit, and in speaking to them said: , "I want all of you teachers to see what won derful work Oregon is doing in ,her rural schools. Their standard school plan is just what we need- in our . county. ' ' The -teachers at once voted to adopt the Oregon , plan,- and the Oregon standard card is now in every rural school, in Monterey county. Superintendent Harriett S. Lee of Yolo county, writes: "I am now working to make your standard school plan to nt xolo county, and I wish to thank you for the many excellent pamphlets and cards I have received through the medium of your delight ful reperesentative at the Panama Pacific Exposition." . Of the club work, it is conceded that no other state bas the work so well organized. ,The local and county school fairs with the club winners' work shown at the state fair, making a logical culmination of the year's work, the organizing and directing of the wdrk by the state school superin tendent with the expert bulletins pre pared by the State Agricultural col lege for the children, telling them how to select seed and to do their work, are features which are raising the club work of Oregon boys and girls to a high stsndard. The judges at tho State fair this year declared that the corn exhibited by the fooys was fully one hundred per cent better than last year, while the vegetables and otlief products were a much biglier grade than ever before. Hundreds of requests have coma from all parts of the United States for the Recreation manual, issued oy the State Department of Education, and every playground expert pro nounces it to be the best one publish ed. Every teacher in Oregon is fur nished with a copy of this manual and the attention given this problem in Oregon during the psst two years is developing a happier, healthier lot of school children. Commissioners from a number of the foreign countries have sent their secretaries to tbe Oregon educational exhibit with instructions to copy ev ery chart shown in order that they may have the material for a special report to their countries on rural schools. What tbe county and eity superin tendent of other states say of - cur work is well summarized by G. E. Wolfing, superintendent of vocation al education, Gary, Indiana, who said: "In Oregon, through your stan dard for rural schools, your Bovs' and Girls' Industrial clubs and your play grounds, yon are doing a work equil to that which the federal government is doing for the schools in the Phil ippine Islands, and this work is at tracting the attention of educators in all parts of tbe world." H. W. Wayne of Corrallis spent Sunday in Dallas.
