W. C. McCulston "The proposed

II. H. Ford "A fine school house

On that account I will vote for the

D. E. Hunter "The members of
the achool board who made the trip
of Inspection toll mo that what they

modern Idea, as exemplified In Spo

auditorium and baths, which can be
used not only for school purposes but
for various community Interests aa
well. Such building, thece members
tell mo, should be In a central loca

suitable for such a community build

PRINEVILLE, May G. From tho
non-legal standpoint. Circuit Court
week, which commenced here yester
day, has Its Interests and pleasures.
Among the first rnny bo numbered
sundry bucking contests, official nnd
otherwise, and a couple of catch-as-catch-can
Tho pleasures may bo minimized
-for even the most enthusiastic can
not maintain that It la specially ex
citing to hear Judge Bradahaw charge
a grand Jury.
One of the really Interesting sights
Is that of the grand Jury men whom
one encounters here and there about
the streets. They look worried. Sev
eral ball from llend. True, no Dend
men were drawn for the first Jury,
but all were obliged to remain here
over Tuesday. After questioning, It
becomes apparent what Is tho matter
with them; they are confronted with
the problem of the high cost of liv
ing. In abort, the question that la
marring their Prlnevlllo sojourn la
this: How can a grand Juror, who
gets two dollars a day and ten cents
a mile for coming here, make any
money when It costa two dollars a
day to cat and sleep (plus two more
to smoke and drink) and twenty
cents a mile for transportation?
When lost seen none of the five
Dend men hod been able to solve the
riddle. The puzzled ones are A. S.
Collins. Anton Aune, P. II. Dcncer,
E. T. Luthy and J. U. Heybuni. .
