Attend Races at Corvallls
Independence Is well represented
at the meet of thhe Corvallls Driving
Club Association which opened In
that city yesterday and which will
continue through today and Satur
day. Among the stables represented
from this city are those of C. A. Mc
Laughlin, including Kamsack, Misty
Pride, Carl Paud, the Princess; Pete
Cook's stable of harness horses; Ru
pert Dickinson, with a stable of gal
lopers, while W. W. Percival will be
represented by the Independence stal
lion stable. The sporting fraternity
of Independence is putting great re
liance in the ability of Mr. McLaugh
lin's stables to sustain the reputa
tton of Independence and Polk coun
ts In the Corvallis meet and are
tanking on his returning home with
flying colors and a good fat weasel
window overhead wns romimnr. She
would often climb the stairs to tell
them some bit of Tillage golp ami
le::ve them laughing at a quaint enra
nent about some lniil"ltlve slater of
tbe churrh who had happened to luror
tier dlapleaaure.
As spring came on liouglaa rarrled
Polly down to tbe aunllt garden be
neath tbe window, and Mandy flut
tered about arranging the cushion
with motherly solicitude.
More days slipped by sod Polly began
: creep through the little, soft leaved
tree at the back of the rburob and to
look for the deep, blue, sweet scented
violets. When she was able Iktuglaa
took ber with hint to visit some of tbe
outlying bouaea of the poof- "r
woman s Instinct was quirk to per
relre msny small needs In their live
that be bad overlooked and to auggeHt
hjple. Inexpeuxlve Joys that made
them her devoted friends.
Their evenings were divided between
making plans for then unfortannten
nod reading aloud from tbe Bible or
other books.
When Polly gained courage, Douglas
sometimes persuaded her to read to
him, and tbe little corrections that he
made at these times soon became
noticeable In her manner of speech.
She was so eager, so starved for
knowledge that she drsnk It as faat
as be could give It It was during
tbelr talks about grammar that Mandy
generally fell asleep In ber rocker, ber
unfinished sewing still In ber lap.
When a letter came from Jim and
Toby It was always shared equally by
Mandy and Haaty, Polly and tbe pas
tor. But at last a letter came from
.lira only, and Donglas, who was asked
to read It. faltered and stopped after
the first few words.

Douglas laid the letter gently on the
table, bis hand atlll renting upon It. He
looked helplessly at the little, shrunk

bad made no sound, but ber bead bnd
allnped lower and lower, and she now
sat very quietly with ber face In her
hands. 8he had been taught by 'looy
and Jim never to whimper.

Announcement of Summer School
The Enterprise has Just received
-the May number of the University of
Oregon Bulletin which announces the
lummer school to be held at the Uni
versity from June 28 to August 6.
The announcement is important to
teachers of Oregon in that the sum
mer session is conducted practically
-free of charge in their interests at a
time when it is possible for them to
attend. In the past the larger part
Of those attending have been teach
ers. The university believes that It
can extend its advantages of library,
laboratory, equipment and teaching
force in no better way than through
the summer school. The courses of
fered for teachers cover the greater
tiumber of the subjects required in
the state examinations.
Opposed as Cruel and Inhuman.
O. A. Kramer, who attended the
meeting of the State Jewelers' Asso
ciation at Portland last week reports
that a feature of the meeting which
caused comment was the passage of a
resolution condemning the metaliz
lng of horned toads and other small
animals to be used in Jewelry. While
It is not known that this peculiar
form of adornment is used In Inde
pendence It is stated that in some
places it has become quite a fad.
The process by which the unfortu
nate animals are transformed into
Jewelry is quite ingenious, but also
exceedingly cruel. The live toad Is
dipped into a hot acid solution and is
then ready for plating with the metal
desired. The result Is a very life
like bangle or pin, hut as the suffer
ings of the animal before it dies must
be Intense the humane side of the
Jewelers has caused them to unite
Jn an effort to stop thf practice.

phantoms, with as little consciousness
of their own best Interests as of the
great, moving powers of tbe world
about them. They felt no throes of
envy, no bitterness. They loved and
worked and "went their way."
For once the pastor was powerless
In the presence of grief. Both he and
Mandy left the room quietly, feeling
that Polly wished to be spared the
outburst of tenrs that a sympathetic
word might bring upon her. They al
lowed her to remain alone for a time;
then Mandy entered softly with a ten
der good nlgbt, and Douglas followed
her cheerily as though nothing at all
had happened.
It was mady weeks before Polly
again became a companion to Douglas
and Mandy. but they did not Intrude
upon her grief. They waited patiently
for the time when youth should again
assert Itself and bring back their
laughing mate to them.

"We ain't got Toby with us do more.

knowed you'd 'a' wanted me to, an'
tbe rest of the folks was mighty white
to him too. I guess they kinder felt
bow lonesome be was. He couldn't get
no more laughs In the show, so Barker
had to put on another man with him.

D0uski8 stopped. I'olly was waiting,
ber face white and drawn. He had
not told her of Toby's letter because
with it had come a request to "say
nothin' ter the kid."
He felt that Polly was controlling
ben-elf with an effort until he should
reach the end of Jim's letter, ho he
hurried on. .
"The parson's "prnilee didn't pet to
him none too quick." he read. "That

HEN Polly understood that To
by was actually gone It seem
ed to her that she could never
laugh again. She had been too
young to realize the lnevltableness of
death when It came to her mother,
and now she could scarcely believe
that Toby would never, never come
back to her. She felt that she must
be able to drag him back; that she
could not go on without him. She
wanted to tell him how grateful she,
was for all his care of her. She
thought of the thousand little things
that she might have done for him. She
longed to recall every Impatient word
to blm. His gentle, reproachful eyes
were always haunting her. "You must

Tt was only when body and mind had
worn themselves out with yearning
that a numbness at last crept over her,
and out of this grew a gradual con-
lousness of things about her and a
returning sense of her obligation to
otherH. She , tried to answer m ner
old, smiling way and to keep her mind
upon what they were saying instead
of letting It wander away to the pnt.

visits to the poor. The women of the
town would often see them passing
and would either whisper to each

their eyebrows with smiling Insinua

too much absorbed in each other to
take much notice of what was going
on about them.
