Probably the chief reasons for
unsatisfactory results in hill se­
lection of seed potatoes, is that
the selection is started at dig­
ging time instead of at blossom
time, Leaf mosaic, curley dwarf,
and spindle sprout, are easily
detected when vines are green
but not after they have withered.
Evidence of these diseases is not
found on the tubers. If plenty
of healthy, vigorous plants are
staked at blossom time, a goot
supply of disease free seed can
be selected at digging time.—O.

Seed certification of grain has
been practically completed in al
grain growing counties of east­

of good varieties, adapted to the
locality where grown.—Exten­

formation has been obtained from
these surveys for use in advising

One of the most imporant du­
ties of those who are- entrusted
with the care of children, is the
formation, in them, of good hab­
its. And this covers a wide
range in manners, speech,
thought, action and morals. The
task is truly an onerous one, and
requires constant vigilance. But
nothing is more productive of
beneficial results, as the habits
thus formed continue as a rule,
through life by becoming fixed,
and those who have had their
habits thus developed bless those
who trained them. Many a man
has had his future wrecked on
account of a bad habit which was
not checked while young, and
which afterwards he could not
break, although he saw it was
his undoing. In this issue of the
N e w s , there is a mention of a
young boy who has just entered
the Estacada High School. That
of course, is nothing unusual, but
his fine record in the grammar
school calls for attention, which
shows that for eight years he
was neither absent nor tardy.
Now this means three very im­
portant things, first, that he is
healthy, otherwise sickness might
have caused his absence; second­
ly, that he has formed the habit
of punctuality; thirdly, that he
has acquired a liking for school
and its work. We do not know
whether he is exceptionally
bright in his studies, but he has
developed something more im­
portant, [and that is perseverance.
So he starts in his high school
career most advantageously, and
if he keeps up his past record for
punctuality, he is sure to do well.
But whether or not he aspires to
scholastic honors, his reputation
for punctuality will prove a most
invaluable asset when he goes
out into the world to make a liv­
ing. For a punctual man is in­
variably one who has a sense of
responsibility and proves reliable.
During the year 1917, there
were shipped into the State of
Oregon, over six hundred thou­
sand tons of coal. If we allowed
an average price of ten dollars
per ton, for mine price plus
freight, this would represent ov­
er six millions of dollars that
had been sent out of Oregon for
wages and freight rates.
A very large portion of this
money can be kept in the state
if the people of Oregon will pa­
tronize a home industry which
has recently been completed at
an expense of about half a mil­
lion dollars, namely the Beaver
Hill Coal Mine and Cleaning
Plant. This mine is located in
Coos Couniy, and is now prepared
to supply a very good grade of
It is claimed that three bil
lions of dollars are hidden around
houses and carried in pockets by
the people of the United States.
All this subject to almost instant
destruction by many causes. If
this was deposited in banks, thus
releasing it for useful purposes,
it would go a long way toward
financing necesssary business to­
day, besides affording the depos­
itor a source of protection and
200,000 trespassers have been

was to formally take effect when
nine states had ratified it and on

only four days.
The beginnings of New Hamp­

Portsmouth In Hampshire, Eng­

the colony derived and also that

a reward for Mason's faithful­

the Merrimac river. The flrst

a theological dispute arose in
Boston, led by Mrs. Anne Hutch­
inson, which resulted In her be­

lowers went north and founded
Exeter, not far from the towns
of Portsmouth and Dover. Short­
ly after the town of Hampton
was settled by Massachusetts
people. As Captain Mason died
soon after this, these four towns
in 1041 joined themselves to
Massachusetts. In 1C79, however,
King Charles II separated them
again nnd formed the royal prov­
ince of New Hampshire.
The present area of New
Hampshire Is 9,341 square miles.
From the rugged aspect of its
White mountains has come the
name Granite state, by which It
is often popularly called. The
