To Teachers: If you wish to
teach school next year, you should
read one of the following books
during this school year. The law
requires that any teacher who
registers her certificate bt tween
the third Monday in June, 1914,
aim me mini monuay in June,
1!M5, must satisfy the county su
perintendent that she has read
one of these books. See Section
24, School Laws of Oregon, 1913.
Teachers who read one of these
books last year, should read a
different book this year. The
Oregon State Library, Salem, has
i limited number of copies of
ach book. These will be loaned
to teachers, the only expense be
ing the postage, which would
amount to from '22 to 2 cents.

A late dispatch from Salem
says: To prevent the spreading
of rabies, the State Livestock
Sanitary Board, at a meeting
held here today, issued an order
placing 11 counties under quar
antine. It was announced that
the disease had been communi
cated by coyotes to horses, dogs
cats and other animals in the
eight counties in the eastern part
of the state. The counties in
cluded in the quarantine are Lake,
Harney, Crook, Baker, Umatilla,
Malheur, Wheeler and Union,
where rabies prevails, and Mul

to which it is feared the disease
The order requires that all dogF,
unless used in herding livestock,
be muzzled. State Veterinarian
Lytic, who attended the meeting,
said that all violations of the
iuarantine would be punished to
the fullest extent of the law, the
penalties being fines from $50 to
5100 for each offense. Mr. Lytle
announced that all peace officers
would be called upon for assis
tance in enforcing the order.
The veterinarian declared that
