Because a political boo is buz

asked concerning the report that
had' recently been scattered
abroad that the Pacific Livestock
Company ranches in Malheur
county were to Ue subdivided and

no truth in the report as the com
pany needed all their ranches
for their immense cattle busi

to say in favor of tho oil well on

strong as Mr. Clyne about tho oil

that the samples of oil taken

"A mother who trains her
daughter for a 'society bud' will
regret it in nfter years, and most
surely tho young lady herself
will regret it in her mature years;
but the mothers who trains and
teaches her datiglitor to become
a good mother and housewife
will later be loved respected and
venerated by that daughter, as
the latter herself reaps tho bene
fit of tho training and teaching
in after years," says an editorial
in a recent number of the Myr
tle Point Enterprise.
"The mothers of the country
should think about these things
much more than they do. and thus
do better work as truo homo
builders for future generations.
In her home one woman can do
far more for tho uplift of human
ity than did a thousand sufixag
etts in London who, in smashing
windows made only material for
sensational stories for tho yellow
journals of the world, or than
could a thousand Carrie Nations
with a thousand hatchets and a
thousand votes."
The Oregon Agricultural Col
lege does not pretend to educate
young women lor careers as
Carrie Nations and suftragctts,
but it does graduate each year
large classes of young women
prepared to administer efficiently
a wholesome, happy home, and
in a most economical way. The
department of domestic science
and art opened its class work
Tuesday morning, Sept. 21. The
domestic science work includes
courses in simple food prepare -tion,
more advanced cookery, in
valid diet and refreshments,
laundering, the serving of meals,
camp cookery, food for children,
house sanitation, household ad
ministration, home nursing, mar
keting, the study of home prob
lems, a course on the evolution
of the house which gives some
thing of tho history of lionn
making, and i-pcunl training in
the theory and practice of teach
ing domestic science for those
who wish to lake instructional
positions after leaving college.
In the domestic art department
tho sewing classes learning some
thing ot spinning and weaving
and the fundamentals of the art
and then learn to make under

simple dresses and latet more

Money Founel Under Pillow
Thomas Ilutton a prominent
stockman of Wagontire Moun
tain was in Lnkeview Tuesday.
Mr. Ilutton from his own ac
knowledgement is one man who
has all tho money he needs and
which is proven by his coming
from his place to Lakeview to
deliver a putbo he found the
overling before to Mr. Lonzway
of the Colorado Cafe. Mrs.
Lonzwny's brother Ahlstrom, had
started Sunday morning on his
motorcycle to visit relatives in
Malheur, Oregon. He stopped
all nifeht at Wagontire Mountain
and on going to bed placed his
wallet containing $35.00 in bills
under the pillow, which he for
got the next morning.
The following night Mr. Hut
Ion upon retiring in the same
bed discovered the purse. Be
sides having printed on it the
owners name and address, the
purse contained a Modern Wood
man's receipt and the bills men
tioned. These identifications
were sufficient and Mr. Hutton
hastened to Lakeview to deliver
his find to Mr. Lonzway. Lake
