Agriculture. In Our Schools.
At the educational meeting Satur
day night, much stress was laid on
the subject of the teaching of agrl
culture in our schools. The teach
ing of agriculture has but recently
been introduced into the public
schools of Oregon, but it is certain
ly a step in the right dircctiou.
This course is something that
should have been adopted many
As a demonstration of the practi
cal good that may result from the
study of agriculture in the schools,
we would cite work done by the
agricultural class in the Crook
county high school. In the course
of their studies these scholars were
instructed iu the nature and the
cause of fire blight ou fruit trees.
They extended their theoretical
knowledge obtaiued in the class
room, to an examination of or
chards in the vicinity of Prineville,
and found two or three orchards
badly infected with the disease.
The owners did not know the rem
edy, which consists of n thorough
and deep pruning and the burning
of every scrap of brush obtained
from the pruning. Of course, the
students were able to impart the
necessary knowledge that will teud
to eradicate the disease.
The knowledge of that one par
ticular thing may mean the saving
of thousands of dollars to the com
munity in years to come. And it
is only one of the many ways in
which the knowledge obtained in
the classroom will bring profit to
the community. The students will
be taught the value of a proper se
lection of seeds and how to tell good
irom poor seed. This alone has
often doubled and trebled the yield
of crops. They will also be taught,
to some extent, the chemistry of
the soil and bow plants grow and
thrive. In many, many ways the
teaching of agriculture in our
schools will bring dollars into the
pocket of our farmers.
Furthermore, that is not the only
consideration involved. The study
of agriculture is intensely interest
ing to most people, and it certainly
broadens and develops one. How
great is the pleasure to one who is
able, as he walks through the fields
and the byways and highways, to
understand Nature's innermost se
crets and to appreciate the appar
ent mystery of a rose and thistle
growing side by side, and bow
through the agency of sunshine,
water and the chemicals in the soil,
Nature brings to a ripe harvest a
field of wheat on one side of a fence
and a crop of crisp, luscious ap
ples on the other. No one can
delve into the great book of Na
ture's mysteries and not be broad
Thus the study of agriculture
will have a two-fold tendency. It
will bring practical results and will
develop the love of nature in our
children. It is a good thing and
should be encouraged. In this
connection, we may state that a
class in agriculture has already
been organized iu the Rend school.
There is a matter The Bui.
letin wishes to call to the attention
of the parents of Bend. It is that
their children make altogether too
much noise and disturbance at pub
lic meetings. This has been notice
able at many gatherings, but was
especially troublesome at the edu
cational meeting Saturday night.
Two or three times during the
evening there was so much noise
and confusion in the hall that it
was exceedingly annoyiug to the
speakers. It's ati insult lb n speak
er to have a gang of youngsters
moving from one part of the hall
to another, getting up, turning
around and silting down, and con
stantly tramping iu and out the
door. If they arc allowed to attend
a public gathering, make them
take a scat ami keep it. Especially
should they be taught that it h the
utmost discourtesy ically an in
sultto jump up and move about
the liall while one is speaking,
singing, or playing. Not only the
children but sqmc of the older peo
ple could ponder over these things
with profit. On every occasion,
when some are obliged to stand in
the rear of the hull, there is alto
gether too much moving about and
a rude disregard of the respect due
the one speaking. Let's have our
gatherings a little more quiet. And
let's act less like savages.
The old soldiers of Hcnd should
sec to it that Memorial or Decor
ation Day is fittingly observed in
Uend this year with an appropriate
program. This is a custom that
should not be allowed to die out.
It is good for n nation to pause one
day and pay honor to the men who
luivc fought and suffered to pro
tect it. It is well to ponder these
things, and Decoration Day is a
fitting time. Let some one start
the ball rolling. It. is none too
The Bulletin has just received
the March uumber of the Uni
versity of Orrgon bulletin. It is a
handsomely prepared booklet of 30
pages showing a number of views
of the university buildings and
campus, with a large amount ol
cdndenscd information in regard to
the work of the University, en
trance requirements, cost of living,
student life, etc
Superintendent Koid and the out-of-town
teachers thoroughly ap
preciated and were much gratified
at the unusually large attendance
at the educational meeting. This
is easily explained. Bend people
are awake to the value of and hence
arc. always interested in education
al matters. As witness our ex
cellent school system.
Bro. Bowman, editor of that
wide-awake paper, the Lake Coun
ty Examiner, evidently has forgot
ten his multiplication table. He
says that 200 times 15,000,000
Dos In tho Manger Policy,
The dam site proposed by the
government on the Deschutes for
the purpose of pumping water for a
reclamation system in Umatilla
county, seems to be the only ob
struction to the building of a rail
road to Madras and Bend. This 1
a most unfair proposition on the
part of the government as dwellers
on the Deschutes and its tributaries
are better entitled to the use of the
river than the people of Umatilla
county. We have been hearing of
this dam for the past five yearn,
and it seems the government is
simply holding up the building of
the road from pure pigheadedness,
and is acting like the dog in the
manger, wont build the dam and
wont allow the road to go ahead.
