More ami Utter wool has been mar
keted at Independence tliis your tlian in
any other previous year, remarked a local
wool .Valor the other day. So far this
about HiO.000 pounds have Won sold
here at prices averaging 1" cents per
pound. The tleeoes area little lighter
this year, but of better quality than here
tofore. In asking the reason for this it
was suggested that it might be owing to
the heavy rains during the past season as
fleeces were unusually clean. The shrink
age in weight was doubtless due to the ab
sence of dirt.
Keferring to the sheep industry of Polk
county it was thought that no better field
could be found than right here. The
trouble has been it has not been given
any attention until quite recently. Nearly
all the wool grown is of course grade
ami hence brings the lowest market price.
Medium and fine grades are much in de
mand for use right here in the Willamette
valley and always bring good prices.
Fine grades are shipped in every year to
supply the home consumption, while our
course wool is shipped East to be made
into carpets and other course goocis.
It ought not to take very much mental
arithmetic for our growers to see what
they ought to do to increase their bank
account. Think it over.

No higher compliment could be paid to
the State Normal School at Monmouth
than the selection of its teachers to occupy
higher educational positions in other state
institutions. No sooner was President
Campbell "elected to the presidency of the
State University when the announcement
was made that Mr. B. F. Mulkey was
elected to the presidency of the Southern
Oregon State Normal at Ashland. George
Bishop, another teacher of the Mon
mouth school, also goes to the Southern
Oregon institution to occupy the chair of
science. These gentlemen, all eminent in
their several lines of educational work, do
not by any means exhaust the educational
talent on the faculty of the Monmouth
Normal. It has long been recognized by
the people of Oregon that this is an ex
ceptionally strong school and the verdict
of the people has been confirmed by those
high in authority who are selecting its
officers and teachers for advancer educa
