which has done ho much for tho public

teachers who have devoted their years
to training tho youthful liiindu of the
native aoim and daughters of this fail'
land of tho west. '.';'..
Thia school was established as
Christian College in 1805 and was first
recognized us a Stuto Normal school
in 1882, graduating its first class the
following year. Tho stato . assumed

From 1883 to 1900 the total number
of graduates .was 82!) wild the number
still teaching is 533, or a total per
centage for the 23 yours of G'1.2, but
the percentage based on tho number
' of. graduates during the past five years
is 1)1.8 which shows that for at least a
decade tho greater number of grad
uates devote themeslves altogether to
teaching. The total enrollment dur
ing the year 1U05, the last year that
has been embodied in the Presidents
report, was 283 and tho schoc!l is
capable of taking care of 400 with
some additional room for the training
departments. About 00 per cent of
.the students .are self supporting, either
wholly or in part. A large number of
the graduates of this school hold im

schools of this state as well as other
As to the esteem in w hich the grad-

Monday night the I. A..C. First
team met the Muscatine who are
travelingover the country trying their
skill against nil comers. This team
has played up to Monday night a total
of sixty games and has been defeated
but nine times. Taking into consider
ation' the fact that they havo played
some of tho best learns in the United
States, it is not to be wondered at that
our team was beaten.
The giime was a good clean one and
no jangling and our boys speak
hiehlv of the visitors. Tho crowd was
ono of tho largest that has ever wit
nessed a basket ball game in this city.
The Muscatine have since defeated
Dallas mid are playing towards Port
land. The locil team will have a tryout
with the First team of the Albina
Athletic Club tonight and a warm
game is anticipated.

H. It. Nehrbas, president of the Pilot
Knoh Milling and Mining Company,
came over from Monmouth Wednes
day and in Kpeaking of the outlook
for the coming season mi id that there
was every indication for a good sea-ions
run in the. mines adjacent to the
properties owned by this company.
The company has sixtoeu claims in
the Osceola district in Nevnd.i ami is
capitalized for if.i.r)0,(NM) practically nil
of the stock being owned by Mon
mouth mid Indejienileiice js-opb', who
will be well pleased to learn that
phcuomiually rich ore has Un struck
in tho old tunnel of the Cumberland
claim, which adjoins tho Hornet, one;
of the claims of the Pilot Knob group
and the-tunnel was only thirty fee
from tbe Hornet sale line two years
ago. This would indicate that there
is some miidity nood stuff in tin
Clippings taken from- the Ely
(Nevada) Expositor state that Luther
Williams was over from Osceola and
reported a sensationally rich strike in
the old tunnel of the Cumtiorland
made by the Boston-Nevada company
a few davs before, the whole face of
the tunnel showing free gold which
runs into hundreds of dollars to the
ton. This claim is situated in Dry
Gulch, which was wonderfully rich in
placer gold in the early days of mm
mir in this district, lliis claim was
leased four years and the parties hav
ing the leaso took out and worked
through the Cumberland mill tons of
ore that yielded better than $1500 per
ton. The' nature of the ore deposits
in the Osceola camp would lead one
acauainted with the situation to
believe that tho rich body of ore struck
in the Cumberland will lead to larger
and still richer ore bodies in thevicin
The fact that the Cumberland is so
closely in touch with the Hornet is
reason for the stockholders in the
local company to feel justly elated
over this big strike, for there is little
doubt but it goes through the latter
Another clipping states that a Mr.
Burritt of Osceola says there is a very
optimistic feeling prevailing in the
camp and that there will be a great deal
of development work done tho coming
season and that heavy operations may
confidently' bo . looked for. The' big
tunnel on tho New Moon is nearing
the ore body and that the Black Horse
near Osceola is-also making good.
: In the Osceola camp are a number of
claims that have paid dividends, the
Raymond & Ely having paid as high
as seven dollars ft month. The stock
holders ot tho Pilot Knob company
are well pleased with the news they
have received, but it will bo some
time before active operations can be
resumed on the main body of claims
as the snow is now twelve feet deep
on some of them. This is better than
having them located like many of the
camps in that country where one has
to haul water for a hundred miles.
