operation would aid the large ctt)
houses in getting their goods to the
isolated country customer, the saute
benefit, in u far more substantial
degree, would accrue to the local
merchant. He would cater to thr

lie can now, efficiently, cheaply uno
quickly. By means of the parcels

a long trip to town in person, cost

"Shall books of fiction be prohibited
in our school libraries?"
Such is the question debated at a
recent meeting of a literary society
in Ctook County. If a school is to
have a library containing auy book;,
other than the driest of text books.
it certainly would be an unconscion
able shame to exclude therefrom
fiction. Think of books like "Ben
Hot," "Uncle Tom's Cabin,"
"Black Bess" and "Bob, Son of
Battle" possibly being excluded
from the useof young folks because
they come under the head of "fic
tion." Each of these and there
are hundreds more as worthy is u
splendid combination of human
sermon and moral text book, and
written with such vital interest that
the full attention of every school
boy and school-girl reader would be
held to the utmost held as no
academic text book possibly could.
To take fiction from the reach of
school readers, if it in possible to
make it accessible to them, would
be a course as bhortsighted as is
Kussias' in its censorship of reading
matter inimical to the governmental
policy. Let fiction be selected with
care, but by all means encourage

Here are some suggestive com
parisons in costs of transportation.
Up to the present thj settler coming
to Central Oregon has had to pay
in the neighborhood of twenty-rive
dollars to transport himself from
Portland to Bend. Perhaps thirty
dollars would be a fairer estimate ot
the usual cost of the trip. Now
come the railroads with their an
nouncement of low immigrant rates
One can come from Chicago to
Portland for practically the same
cost as the Portland-Bend railroad
aud auto rate. On top ot this, the
completion of the Oregon Trunk to
Madras cuts in bait the staging
distance from the railroad to Bend,
which will mean that those coming
to Central Oregon aud Bend can get
here, from middle western and east
ern points, at a cost of prubabl)
half that which has prevailed up to
the present. The result certainl)
will be a tremendous immigration.
The beginning of the end has
come The railroad has reached
Madras. Central Oregon's tran
p irtation isolation U a thing of the
past Today Madras celebrates the
arrival of the iron road, and with
her all the interior country rejoices.
An early season, this, for railroads
and a bumper crop is assured.
And as the crop matures let us
borrow a catch phrase and declare
to the observing World, "Watch
Central Oregon Grow."
