Amid great enthusiasm the twenty third annual State Sunday School Convention closed here tonight. t was the largest and most suc cessful gathering of its kind ev er held in the state. The First Congregational church was filled to overflowing at every session. he resolutions committee pre sented its report, which express ed appreciation of the earnest efforts of the convention's lead ers, Excell, Lawrence, Merritt and Phipps; declared in favor of the study of temperance princi ples and condemned the Reddy amendment in the following terms: Whereas. Saloon interests are proposing to make ineffective our present local option law by an amendment to our state constitu tion, giving cities and towns the sole right to regulate and control saloons and kindred interests by a vote of the few regardless of the will and vote of the many; be it Resolved. That this convention of Christian workers vigorously opposes this proposition and urges every Christian voter to cast his ballot against this proposed con stitutional amendment in the ap proaching state election. Teachers' Meeting. The series of local institutes held at Banks, Dilley and Bea verton proved an inspiration to the teachers who availed them selves of the opportunity of at tending. The institute at Bea verton last Saturday was one of tne larirest local innTiTe-s held in the county. The first period was taken by Prof. J. II. Stanley of Portland, who opened the discussion of the subject grammar. Prof. Stanley cited the fact that the industrial world had progressed by leaps and bounds during the past de cade, and questioned if the teach ing profession had kept apace. He then proceeded to discuss some of the more modern meth ods of teaching English gram mar. Dr. Y. C. Yenney, secre tary of the state board of health was the next on the program and his discourse on "Schoo Sanitation" was listened to with interest by the teachers as a Knew tnat Dr. 1 enney s exper ience made him authority on this subject He recommended that the common drinking cup, com mon towel and common washba sin be banished from the school room. He thought it imprudent for a school board to close school on account of one or two cases of contagious diseases in the dis trict He thought it a better plan to isolate the persons affect ed and continue the school, for pupils out of school would endan ger their health more than they would if their school work was continued. Prof. S. F. Ball, principal of Couch school, Port land, was next on the program and his talk on "Methods of Teaching" showed him to be a master of the art and science of teaching. He is a strong man and it is hoped to have him with the teachers of Washington coun ty again. Miss E. A. Downing presented a paper on "How to Teach Spelling," and gave an ex hibition of work with a class of pupils from her school. The lit erary program presented by the pupils of the Beaverton school and the hospitality extended by the citizens in serving free a feast at the noon hour impressed the teachers that Beaverton is alive to the school interests of the county. In the afternoon Miss Warden, teacher in the Highland school, Portland, gave a model recitation in phonics. She brought her class of pupils and showed results that com mended her methods of teaching reading. All the teachers who attended this institute left feel ing that they had gotten value received for their time and trou ble, and that they could return to their work in the county and render better service for the pa trons of their schools. Two Ttrvers. The editor of The Independent had business at Two Rivers, Wash., last Saturday and Sun day and was given an opportun ity to take a look at the immense irrigating plant just completed at that point The flume and ditches ever 1 ar seven rm .'.'t? lentrh and it has taken three years to com plete it up to th point of opening up the big flood gates, which was to have been done last Monday. The huge pump, of 119 horse power, was all ready for work and only awaited the hand of the expert engineer, whose turn of the wrist will start a great volume of water from the Snake river into the pipe that will de liver it to the large ditch and from this to smaller ones, and in this manner reclaim, in this sec tion alone, over 13,000 acres of land capable of growing anything that earth in this latitude can produce. Two Rivers is located between the Columbia and Snake rivers, 27 miles from Umatilla and five or six from Wallula. On one side of the town site runs the O. R, & N. railroad and on the other the North Bank road, and a trans-continental line has been surveyed through the town, which in themselves is a positive guarantee for a bright future for that place. The lack of water has made that country one of sage brush, sand and dust, but now that moisture is at hand and in plenty, a few years will place it among the most productive in the state, dotted with beautiful homes and peopled with men and women of energy and pluck. The town now has a first ' class hotel which is presided over by Landlord Richardson and his es timable wife, whose chief aim in life seems to be to make their guests contented and happy. A postoffice, several general stores and a modern printing office, which is issuing weekly the only real newspaper in the county. ' Adjoining the town is a splendid nursery in which are growing thousands of trues, shrubs and vines, and there are many gar dens inside the limits which are growing millions of strawberries and large beds of asparagus. In fact the last two named is the chief crop there at present and in season large quantities are sent to the Walla Walla market daily. Land is now selling at $100 an acres and something like 250 lots have been sold at from $50 to $000 each, the owners only waiting for the water to be turn ed on to commence building op erations. That has now been done, and within nine months Two Rivers will be a bustling ittle city of from 800 to 1,000 people. Notice lo Sprayers.
