Workmen are tearing down the
city water tower which has for

rot had taken hold of the big
tanks inside and as a matter of
precaution the city authorities
thought it best to remove the up
per and lower tanks and build a
new one or sunieient size to cio
away with the one at the top of
the tower. Mayor Dennis tells
us that orders for more water is
coming in almost every day and
it was concluded to build a tank
which will supply all demands.
Besides, the timbers which held
the huge tanks, were showing
signs of decay in many places
and then there was danger of it
falling sooner or later.

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

frosts were general over the en

the republican state convention
send to the republican national

as are favorable thereto.
We commend and indorse the
able, successful and manly efforts
