be called upon to house and school
no less than five hundred xt mlents.
besides an Increased eorpa of teachers.
A said before Prof, nesler has
not algnlfled a wlllliignesH. to accept
charge of Monmouth's 'normal but
we have. It on good authority that a
tender of the presidency will be made
to him by the luf !uo:tlal moveiu In
the work of rejuvenating that Insti
tution. Tiitll the official tender la
made Professor Keasler says he has
nothing to say. Tho situation with
Jihn la similar to that, of a young la
dy who la being courted: It would
hot be wist) to say yes for fear that
tho affulr might not lead up to a
popping of tho question.
Professor Resslep Is deserving of
the nroslden-cy ou more than one
score. Considering first his earneat
and efficient of forts 1 n behalf ot the
school during his lo;i term as pros
ident of the normal none will deny
that he Is enaltlcd to first consider
ation. Then, at the last, when ho,
with many other self-denying tutors
gave up' his services without com
pensation! In his untiring efforts to
save that institution from tho doom
w'hlch threatened It, thrro Is all the
more call ior a man of such .deserv
ing qualiflcailons.
Monmouth Normal can bet
ter than choose Mr. Resnler to pre-
aide over the destinies of the great
er school which mtiM. grow up on top
of the ruins of Oregon's normals.
A pretty little home wedding waa
solemnized at the home of Mr. and
Mrs, Fred Moseman, Tuesday noon,
November 22, when Miss Lydla Wy
man was united In marriage to Mr.
.Tohn Whitmore of Tacoma.
The Moseman home was tasteful
decorated for the occasion with Ivy
vine and chrysanthemums,
The bridal couple marched In to
the , strains of a - wedding march
played by Miss Freda Moseman. The
ceremony was performed by the Rev.
Mr. Weber of Independence, the bride
being given away by her mother, Mrs.
Moseman, and the groom being at
tended by Mr. Wyman.
The bride was gowned In pongee
silk, heavily embroidered. A wedding
luncheon was served immediately af
ter the ceremony and .the bridal
couplo left on the afternoon train for
Portland, accompanied by the best
wishes and congratulations ,,'of their
many Mends. ,
Air. and Mrs.' Whitmore will make
their home In Tacoma where Mr.
Whitmore is head electrician for a
large firm.
The counle was presented wilh

a measure which la of course only of

In the districts affected, but under tbe
provlulona of the law. It la to be voted
upon by the people of the entire atate.
Judging from matter that 1a being

majority of the residents of those auc

only ones tbere are who are favoring

ing tbm, ;he one thing for electors
who reside outside tbe affected dis

fact of the matter is that the method
now in vogue for the division of coun

tions should be loft entirely to the
people whose homes are In the section
directly concerned and whose Inter
est are thus affected and not to the
voters of the state at large, the major
ity of whom know or care absolutely
nothing about the matter at Issue.
One grave danger of granting those
petitions for divisions ot counties by a
vote of tho people of the entire state
Is that some time the question may
come closer to home. Some one, for
instance, may want to get up a peti
tion to divide our own county and
under the existing law, the people of
other sections of the state wbuld de
termine the question by their votes.
The safer way Is to kljl all measures
of .this kind that come up and thus
nip all prospective petitions In the
ihud, at least until such time as the
state laws are Amended so as to pro
vide for, what nay be termed "home

strictly local measures lo the voters
residing within the .district con

The Patrons of Husbandry protec

Is making tremendous progress. An
organization of such magnitude and
