A keen interest In the efficiency
of our schools, that notlilnu' is too
good for our children in ctiticiilionul
mutters, mpl n desire to brunch out
into new linen unci keep fully
abreast of the times, were the three
predominating notes ut the edu
cational meeting in llcud Satiinlny
night. At) audience that filled

tendance, ami close uttcution was
jiaid to the entire program from the
moment County .Superintendent
I'crd rapped for order until he di
mUml the meeting at a lute hour.
After music by the Haul Concert
Hand, the next number was a most
pleasing drill by a large number of
boy and girl pupils, in costume,
from Miu WcUt's and Mini Rich
ardson's room. This wan some
thing entirely new in drills uuil was
bi unique at it wait new. It was
especially pleasing to the large
The tlrill was followed by a dis

Chapman of Redmond nnd 1'rof.
M. II. Hockenbcrry of the Crook
county high ttcliool. These gentle
incti uuuounccd that A course in
tiurmul training will soon lie in
traduced in the county school. A
competent, thoroughly faiucd teach
er will be put in charge of this
course, jo applications for the post
tion already being on file. The
course will at first consist of two
year's study but it is hoped that
cvcutuully it will be extended to
four years. Theoretical study
will be augmented by pructlcc in
nctttal teaching under the Micr
vision of a competent critic teacher.
Arrangements urc being perfected
to devote tiittch attention to t li if
course at the regular summer
school this year.
Thcic is no question as to the
value of such u department. The
crylug need has been for better
trained teachers for our canity
schools. As a rule the town schools
arc able to employ trained teachers,
but the country r-clionls, even it
able, often find it difficult to secure
trained instructors. Tin! establish
incut of this training department
will prove of inestimable value to
the schools of the county by giving
them competent teuchers.
The next number wus a vocal

the uew move to tcuch ugriculture
in the schools,
"Agriculture and Industrial
Training in the Public Schools"

John Tuck mid Henry Hewlns
Mr. Tuck culled attention to the
Tact that there is a pteseut-diiy ten
dency nwuy from city life 11 ml to
the f 11 rm. This is a good sign and
we should lu-li o luteresl our hoys
and girls in the clean uud healthful
occupation of funning by educating
them in the science of agriculture.
Mr. llcwins told how easy it would
be for cuch school to have a small
plat of ground where actual ex
periments in agriculture could be
conducted, and also dwell on the
value ol manual training in the dis

Miss Hose II. I'arrotl of the Crook
county high school discussed
"Literature in the Grades." Miss
I'urrott had an outline, on a black
board, as u suggestion of the litera
ture that should be taught ,in the
first four grades. Her dNcusslou
was very interesting nnd of much
value to the tcacheis present. She
urged the iiiiortaucc of teaching
the children mythology, uud of ac
quainting them with historical
characters thtough their literature

Mr. Carter was totally ignorant
of the fact that he possessed n piece
of rock that some if ay might he the
means of making his fortune. A
few weeks ogo a stranger passed by
Mr Carter's home and stopped for
it short lime. He noticed the rock
on the mantel, at once picked it up
and examined It, and then turned
to Mr. Carter and asked him if he
knew what he hod there. Mr.
Carter replied that be supposed it
was just an ordinary pircc of rock

Fear of Unfavorable Report
on RIght-of-Way Matter.
Now comes corroboration of the
statements made in the letter pub
lished in last week's Bulletin and
received by. Hunter & Stnats of
Bend. The letter said in part:
"From personal knowledge I know
that a promtucnl railroad builder,
known also in Crook county, has
been offered the supervision of con
structing the Deschutes road." The
Portland Telegram, in a recent is
sue, states the same thing and
names K. IS. Lytic as the man. It
says that it is highly probable Mr.
Lytic will be given this task. He
won his spurs as a railroad builder
in throwing the Columbia Southern
up into Oregon from Biggs to Shan
iko on sheer nerve, and unloaded it
onto Hurriinau for a handsome
price. This achievement of Mr
Lytic attracted Hurriman's twrsonal
notice, and this has no doubt influ
enced the "Wizard of the Pacifies"

It is reported that the Indians of
the Klamath reservation are very
much opposed to the Modocs being
brought there from Oklahoma. The
recent net of congress provided for
the return of Captain Jack's band
of Modocs to the Klamath reserva
tion. These Indians have already
been given allotments in' Oklahoma
and they arc to be allowed to sell or
lease these for a term of five years,
and will in addition be given other
allotments on the Klamath reser
vation. They are also to be al
lowed lo share in the tribal funds
of the Klamaths.
The Klumath Falls Herald says
this latter provision Ls what has
caused the greatest objection to the
return of the Modocs. The In
dians are not any too anxious to
have the Modocs brought back to
live with them, but they certainly
object 10 sharing with them their

is self explanatory:
Washington, D. C- April 7,
1909. Mr. A. M. Lara, President
Commercial Club, Hcnd, Oregon.
Sir: In reply to your message of
April 6, you are advised that the
question of granting a right of
way for railroad purposes in the
Deschutes canyon Is now under
consideration and will be disposed
of within the next few days.

like the government was trying to
reward the Modocs for fighting
against the whites during the war.
The Klamaths were peaceful and
assisted the soldiers, but Captain
Jack's baud of Modoc Indians
fought the soldiers and massacred
the settlers and some of the officers.
For doing this they arc now about
to receive their second allotment of
lands and are to be allowed an
equal proportion with the Klamaths

ceived from the sale of land belong

As soon as the Indians learned
that preparations were being made
to remove the Modocs to the Klam

William Steinke, a merchant at
this place, met with a very painful
and serious accident last Saturday
afternoon while driving from his
ranch to town. As he was driving
down a small hill just south of town
the horses started forward at a run
and he was thrownjundcr the front
wheels of the wagon, his foot
catching between the double and
single trees. In this position he
was dragged some distance before
the horses stopped. He received a
very painful scalp wound, the scalp
being torn loose from one side of
his skull almost from the crown of
his head to his eyebrow. This was
done, he thinks, by the heavy iron
wheels on the wagon, which ran
against his head. It was a Miracle
that bis skull was not fractured by
the contact. The length of the
scalp wound may be judged from
the fact that Dr. Snook, who
dressed it, used a spool and a half
of ligatures in sewing it up.
Mr. Steinke did not loose con
sciousness at the time of the acci
dent, but as soon as he was able to
extricate binsclf from under the
wheels of the wagon he caught his
horses, wrapped a sack arouud his
head, and drove on into town,
where he tied up his horses and
then sought Dr. Snook.. Pioneer.
