A Collection of Rocks and Mineral
(By Mary Greene)
Our General Science class has the
University of Oregon to thank for
the samples of different kind3 of
rock we are studying. Many of them
are ore-bearing. Among the collec

ngates, and numerous others beauti
ful and interesting. Perhaps the
most entcrcsting fact about this col
lection is that we can look at the
rocks hemselves and learn where
thry are usually found, what tney
the made of, and how they were
formed. Some of ui; recognized sev-
I rral of the rocks as those found here,

when I left j.. - on my vacation.: -
Well, as you .jow, I hopped on the
train which leave Maupin at 12:05.
The driver of the iron horse gave it
tail a twist and a sudden pull and w -were
off. The ride to Portland was ;,,
pleasing and beautiful to the eye. , '
Nature wa putting on the tree,
grass and rock their autumn dres
of yellow, red and gold and they had
the swift-running river as a back- -ground-
Well, the train rolled into the
Portland union station at 5:45, and
;t was raining like the old scratch.
As my destination was out to ray
granddaughter's (Mrs. Stanley Ean
lal) at Montavilla, and as I did not
care to walk that far in the rain, I
asked a taxi driver how much he
would charge to take me out there.
He said S1.50 and I told him he had
bought a customer. I got there just
in time to eat, as the family had
just sat down to supper.
Saturday morning I took a car-
no, I did not taxe tne car; me car
took me out to the stock show. I
paid my eight cents and the conduc
tor gave me a piece of paper and
told me to hunt up another car, one
that had a siirn "To the Stock Snow-
on it and to give the conductor the
piece of paper. I stepped out on
the track and saw a good many peo
ple there. When the car came along
we all got aboard I do not mean
we all had a board, but got on the
car and as I passed the conductor
he cald "fair," and I aid no, it is
not fair for it is raining like th
dickens. He looked at rne and told
me he did not mean the weather, but
have my permit to ride with him.
I then thought of the piece of paper
he other conductor had given me
and he told me I could pass, is he
had a full hand with the king, queen,
ice. iack and the joker. Then the
car started and went on and on. I
'nnlH see nothina: but a big pond 01
water on one side and a green field
ind some trees the other side of the
rack and I besran to think we were
on the wrong trail and were heading
for Seattle or tome other w;.rort
After a while the car stopped and
the conductor told us we could not
go any further unless we would each
Hio. nn o niekle. and if we didn't
have a nickle we would have to walk.
I didn't think that was just right as
I had given him my permit to go to

iealt himself a winning hand and
.hat if I wanted to stay in the game
I would have to ante up my five
cents. I didn't want to give it up
for it was my last nickle I had and
I would have to get a dime changed,
so I dug into my jeans and fished up
and gave it to the conductor. By
Mt time the other customers had
donated their nickles, and he then
had enough to pay for his dinner.
He gave the man In front the
