"In compliance with your request
for me to make a. statement In refer
ence to the things that pertain to
the county superintendent's office, I
hereby submit a Bhort communica
tion. "During my term of office I have
tried to enforce the Truancy Law
without fear or favor.
"It has been my desire to conduct
this ofllco ns economically as Is con
sistent with good schools. While by
law this ofllco la entitled to a super
visor, I havo not employed one Blnco
the birth of Jefferson county, be
aitan I have felt that I rnnlil An tho
''necessary visitations without the ex
tra expense of additional help. All
schools have been visited, when
necessary; several visits have been
made each year.
"This ofllco has prepared and post
ed on the walls of every school house
Sit tho county, a synopals of the
course of study showing all subjects
required, grado by grade, which has
no doubt been of great aid to tho
teachers, pupils and parents, and has
materially assisted in the proper
gradation of tlio pupils.
"Phonic charts, specially prepared
In this ofltce, for the primary reader
now In use In this state, have been
sent to each school.
"Tho monthly report of the pro
gress of every child is sent to the
parent on the uniform county report
"A great many aids to the busy
teacher havo been sent out from time
to time, so ns mora nearly to place
tho rural school on the same piano
as tho village school, such as sight
number cards, best stories, collection
of required poems, etc.
"Outlines for review work, con
sisting of tho principal subjects In
tho school course, havo been pre
pared with considerable trouble and
rare. Judging from tho requests for
theso outlines they must surely have
met the approval of the teachers of
"Whllo we are attempting to do
tho things customary In tho other
counties of tho state, tho above, aids
in routine school work aro exclusive
ly Cro6k County aids worked out
during this term of ollicc.
"As an encouragement to the boys
'and girls, In tho trend toward more
practical education, a number of
Boys' and Glrs Clubs havo been
organized throughout tho county.
"This now departuro Is directly
under tho supervision of tho Oregon
Agricultural College. Each boy and
girl must comploto tho lesson In tho
project they have chosen to study
btforc they may receive tho next les
son, bo that this is not only prac
tical but educational and system
atical jib well.
"The success In this work for the
past year encourages us to believe
that this work may bo continued
with profit to tho boys and girls of

"J. E. MYEIIS."

frequent visits, leud aid to the teach

"J. ALTON THOMPSON."
To the Voters of Crook County:
"Having been asked by tho editor
01 tno ueud uuiletln to furnish a
statement giving my reason for ask
ing your support for re-election, I
beg to submit tho following for your
"In my campaign two years ago
I promised thu peoplo of Crook
county a fair, Impartial and eco
nomical administration, and to en
force tho law to tho best of my abil
ity. Tho question beforo tho voters
today Is, 'Havo I kept my pledgo?'
When elected, tho duties of the
sheriff's oltlce consisted of attending
to legal matters, collecting delin
quent taxes and enforcement of
laws, The County Treasurer at that
time had tho tax collecting. Im
mediately after taking ollicc tho
legislature passed a law placing tho
tax collections all In thu hunds of
tho Bherlff. I was asked by tho
County Court to take over tho work
of Truancy Officer, which I did,
thereby eliminating the expenso nnd
salary of said officer. All juvenile
work Is being conducted by this of
llco without extra cost to tho tax
payers. In appointing my special
deputies I have secured the best men
available, regardless of party affilia
tions. Not with standing all extra
work that has been assumed by this
omcc, 1 nave only had ono deputy.
The only asslstanco being for a
short time during tho rush of receiv
ing taxes last spring, and tho same
for a shorter period this fall.
"We havo collected tho delinquent
taxes, and today only a few hundred
dollars aro due prior to 1913. Our
books are brought up to dato and
any writing for statement uro noti
fied of any delinquency appearing.
Thoso who aro Interested enough to
Inquire regarding their taxes need
havo no fear of property being sold.
In tho beginning I purchased my own
car and havo paid from my salary
a good portion of the upkeep of
same, not withstanding the fact that
the County Court voluntarily offered
to pay all expenso. All fees collect
ed by this ofllco havo been turned
over to tho county, which would
more than pay extra expense. Tho
fees turned In to tho county treas
urer In 1913 and 1914 from tho
sheriff's ofllco totaled $208.40. In
the period of my occupancy of the
sheriff's office, 1916-1916, tho fees
turned In have been more than 900,
and this with Jefferson county off.
"Tho affairs and books of this of
fice are being handled to the best of
our ability, and I have as yet tho
first complaint to reach mo of any
thing other than fair and courteous
"In view of my record of tho past
two years I am leaving It to the
voters of Crook county to Judge
whether tho taxpayers havo been
saved any money and If you believe
I havo done my duty as an officer
I will appreciate your support for
another term, nnd will contlnuo to
conduct thtfoffice In a business-like,
