Teachers nro advised to return
to the old recess of not less than
15 minutes during tho morning
session and again in tho after
noon, but it is -said that tho re
cess will do no good unless tho
teacher makes a supervision of

Tho more simple facts of san

In speaking of this Mr. Alderman
says that it is more valuable to
the boy who expects to live in
tho country to know that a wi'll

it will not receive tho drainage
from tho barn or tho closet than
to know tho exact number of
muscles in tho body, Tho teach
ers aro also advised to teach this
work by example as well as by
direct method. The schoolgro
unds and tho outbuilding aro to
bo cared fer: tho interior of tho
buildings sliouh bo keep clean,
and where tho buildings have no
special ventilation system, every
window is to bo provided with a
window-board, so that .the child

Constitution itself. The work in

A modem course of, study in
drawing is offered and ofio that
will he very helpful to the teach
ers. In this Mr. Alderman says:
"In lato years there has been a
wonderful change in tho teach
ing of drawing. New methods
have been devo'oped, methods
which charm the child." In
speaking of the value of this
course Mr. Alderman says:
"One of the worst tendencies
of the age is towards dependence
on others for amusement, the
love of pleasures that cost. Pub
lic school drawing should work
against this; the search for beau
ty in common things should be
one of its avowed aims. Child
ren have natural ability to appre
ciate beauty in what they see.
Through drawing this apprecia
tion may be developed instead of
being allowed to die away, and
may take the place of the crav
ing for less wholsome pleasures,

Sheriif Richardson has known

first landed in Oregon, when he
was first in trouble at Harney
for killing a calf belonging to a
rancher at whose ranch he stop

Those who attended the mati
nee races last Sunday afternoon
were treated to a surprise when
two of tho best harness horses on
tho courso were beaten by a
"green one." Bill Hanlcy, Pro
gress and John fl started in the
mile and both the former went
off their feet and the little horse
won wilhout much effort. Mr.
Johnson and Phil Smith "put up
a job" on Harry Smith, who
drove John G, intending to allow
him a good lead almost tho en
tire distance and then brush up
and tako the race. They missed
their calculations when their
horses both broke. The same
thing happened in the second
heat besides Mr. Johnson lost a
tire on tho stretch and had to pull
up. The timo was '2:28 in each
heat which is considered very
good for tho little horse who hns
only been worked for six weeks.
There wero four starters in tho
saddlo horso race which was won
byBunynrd's horse. Just after
they got away from the post one
horse, ridden by Ira Davis, fell

statement that ho gave the man
an hour to obtain bail was deni
ed. What the Sheriff did, it is
alleged, was to allow Prough to
proceed to the hotel whero his
wife was and givo her the child
that was with him when arrest
ed, on his word of promise to re
turn to the jail by 1 o.clock that
dr.y. "I ought not to havo done
this," said the Sheriif, "but
thought the man would play tho
game instead of pulling out thp
way ho (lid, as I wanted to givo
him a fair deal."

who remained behind when the
man left, journeyed, to her par

They then went to Idaho and
here the authorities compelled
the man to marry tho girl, ns they
found out that he had not pre
viously married her. From Idaho
they returned to Harney and dif
ficulties again ensued this time
with a cattle king named Ven
ator, who they tried to bribo
first by accusing him of killing a
neighbor's teor, and, failing on
this score, arranged to endtico
tho man into Mrs. Prough'a room
and carry out their dastardly
work. This later ended in gun
play, and tho Sheriff was called.
The case camo into court and
owing to complication, was
which place Prough sent for hcr.tu.0W, ()Uti umi jrollirXi wi,0

Tho trouble arose from tho kill
ing of cattle, tho Sheriff Raid, in
which two brothers by tho namo
of Lorenzcn, for whom Prough
was working, together with tho
latter wero implicated, whom
Prough said, killed tho cattle, ho
having no hand in the killing.
The case was in court and ono of
tho brothers made an affidavit
exonerating Prough from all!
blamo in tho matter. Ho was
sent to the penitentiary for 12
months and I'rough and tho
other brother liberated. It then
leaked out, it is said, that Prough
had got tho convicted man to
mnko tho affidavit on tho prom
iso of assisting him to get
out of jail by bringing him a
hacksaw, placing a Winchester
rifle, a pair of boots and overalls,
a plug of chowing tobacco and
nlso somo cartridges, under a
box that was sot by tho wall of
tho jail.

In the present case it is said
by Lorenzcn that cattle wero

Portland Corespondent
Those Oregon communities
that had no delegates in attend
ance at tho recent session of the
Oregon Dovelopmont Lenguo at
as ho had promised and Loren.en i Astoria sulfored a distinct loss,
than gave tho gamo away and ' for tho meaty valuablo addresses
and discussions would havo well
repaid anyone fur the lime spent
in attending. The leaguers got
down to serious business; there
was no froth nor wasted energy.
From tho very first day, the
convention was notable for the
valuable addresses presented.
Every one was full of sugges
tions that will play an impor
tant part in the future po
licy of the League. Men of the
greatest eminence in their var
ious lines of activity were on tho
program. James J. Hill, Theo
dore B. Wilcox, Judge Robert S.
Lovott, and other of like largo
caliber where heard from, whilo
the community boosters of the
various sections camo prepared
to get the most out of the meet
ing by being on hand with good
suggestions and new ideas.
The slogan of the convention
was "Get Together," along all
the lines of co-operative pffort
that promise to accomplish so
much for the Northwest. The
placing of now arrivals on tho
soil, preparation for reaping tlfe
benefits to follow the Panama
Pacific Exposition at San Fran
cisco in 1915, and Good Roads
were some of the vital topics
thoroughly discussed. La Gra
nde will got the next convention
and every live commercial organ
ization in the state should look
forward to it and have a bigger
attendance next time.
The Portland Commercial club
is making efforts to have Presi
dent Taf t include Oregon in his
Western trin this year when he
comes to the Coast to break
ground for tho Panama-Pacific
Exposition. An invitation was
sent to him by wire to this effect
and he replied he would givo the
matter consideration when his
itinerary is made up.
The value of experimental
farms to this state is shown in a
striking way by the results at
tained by the station in Moro
County, maintained by the Ore
gon Agricultural College. Wheat
grown on this farm by Scientific
dry farming mothods went 22.0
bushels per acre, whilo grain on
adjoining land, farmed under
the old way, was either too poor
to cut or yielded only ten or
twelve bushels an acres. Other
crops grown show a correspond
ing gain when treated scientifi
cally. Medford will givo the use of
1500 acres of land to a capable
stockman who will raise goats.
Tho Southern Oregon city wants
to build up that district as a
goat center, for it is well adap
ted to these sturdy animals that
aro so valuable in clearing up
brush land and making il ready
for orchards.
Whereas the Surpremo Grand
Master of tho Universe, has call-i
ed our beloved brother Dayi'd M.
Loggan from a life of toil and
trouble to that Grand Lodge
abovo where all is peace and
eternal rest, and by his death
this lodge has lost a worthy, ac
tivo and charitable member; his
family a devoted and loving bro
ther, tho community a useful and
law-abiding citizen.
Therefore bo it resolved, that
whilo wo sorrowfully do so. we
bow with roverenco to tho will of
Him who doeth all things well,
and who in His infinite wisdom,
this afilict us.
Resolved that our sympathy is
extended to tho bereaved family
in this hour of aflliction and sor
row, that they be furnished a
copy of these resolutions, the
same spread upon tho records of
the lodge, also furnished tho lo
cal papers for publication and
that tho lodge bo draped in
mourning for thirty days.
