The song of the roses was by 11

girl carried a large pink rose and

It being so appreciated at a former
The debate on newspapers was
Interesting. Each character wore and,
used language of some fifty years
Four boys of the tixth grade, rep
resented Italy. Sweden. Germany and
the United Slates sang the "Public
Schools Will Make Us True Amer
icans." The oration. "The fate of the In
dians " was well delivered by the
president of the eighth grade class.
This class put on the dialogue: "Deaf
Uncle Zed" in which Uncle Zed
poses as deaf while at the home of
his brother's widow until he found
out their true disposition toward him.
Then he took his departure, leaving
his fortune to the maid a.id his speal:
Ing tube to his niece.
The strong part of the program
was the trial scene from the "Mer
chant of Venice". This was very
creditably given by the members of
the high school.
Diplomas were awarded to wventy
eeven eighth grade and six tenth
grade pupils. Principal R. W, Kirk
In his address earnestly urged these
graduates to continue their school
work and hoped to have an eleventh
grade class in high school next year.
DEPRAVITY OF DRINK
R is a sad sight and sorrowful one
evervone whose patriotism would
seek to invest higher citizenship to
Jjehold young men so reduced in im
becility that in their drives on the
highway and streets they allow them
selves to give vent to profane and in
decent language. Listen to them,
when on their return, a half hour lat
er, too drunk to sit up or drive.
It Is again the old story of demon
alcohol. The condition grows worse
through the many intoxicants which
'are now flooding the country and
-which anyone can get by answering
the circulars which are sent out by
Illegitimate dealers in intoxicants in
Portland. Here is a case in which the
postal laws should be invoked severe
ly against such advertising being sent
through the mails. Often such lyaun

Good Story la Klllei
The question Of what constitute
ae of a public character that
Intended to quench the Inaatiabl
cravtori of the dear public wa
broutcbt forcibly home to ua thle wee
when two Of the prominent cltlienu
of Independence, men enjoying posl
tlona of public truat, ao far forgot
themaolvea as to become Involved in
a flrtU encounter while In the courae
of transaction of public businaea.
The affair happened last Tuesday
evening and It la reported that for
a abort time there waa a rough house
and that blood actually flowed.
Through the solicitation, however
and special request of a delegation of
Drominent citliena the Enterprise
withholds the names of the partici
pants and passes up the affair with
out comment. This is done with re
luctance, however, since It has been
harged that the Enterprise has not
been printing much good news.
H. C. Seymour, County Superln
schools was a
pleasant visitor at the Enterprise of
fice this week. He came over to
confer with Prof. R. W. Kirk, prin
cipal of our schools, on matters look
ing to the Interest of the schools
here. He reports that nearly all the
schools have closed for the summer
and savw that in almost every in
stance contracts that have reached
him so far this season call for the
Fall and Winter term to begin In Oc
tober. During a conversation rela
tive to the development ana in-
nrosperity of the public
schools of the county, Mr. Seymour
E. Hicks Real Estate Co. on the mag
nificent reference made by that firm
relative to the schools of Polk coun
ty In their booklet recently issued.
He says it is a wonder to him why
mention of the school advantages of
the county are not more often made
in descriptive circulars sent out by
real estate firms.
A WAY OPEN

There is a way open, to convince
the greatest skeptic. Scores of Inde
pendence people have made it possi
ble. The public statement or tneir
experience is proof the Uite or wiucu
has never been produeecT before in
Independence. Read this case of it
given by a citizen:
Zed Rosendorf, merchant, Main bt.,
Independence, Ore., says: "For ten
years I was troubled with kidney
complaint and finally became so bad
that I! was forced to walk in a stoop
ed position. My kidneys were dis
ordered and on account of the fre
quency of the secretions, I was forced
to arise almost constantly during the
night. Often I would have to sit up,
