On Friday night, Febmary 1, the
Boys Batket Ball team of the High
School and the A. A. C. played their
second game. It, though not quite
as good as the Brst, ended after two
20 minute halves in a glorious defeat
of the High school, io a score of 23 to
4, also with a broken window pane.
In every way our High School is
steadily improving. The books In oar
library are to be catalogued and a
pocket is to be put in every book, so
as to keep track of who has read
them, during the year. It is a pleas
ure to go to school now. And when
we are old aud gray, we will be
proud to say that we have in our
youth attended the Grants Pass High
Strikes seem to predominate in the
bueinesi world at the present time
aud as it would never do for the
Sophos. to be behind the times, we,
the members of the Sophomore class
are preparing for a grand uprising
and will begin action just as oon as
our leader Ceanar instructor gives us
four chapters to translate for one
veninir. We have reached the three
'chapter mark already and are fast on
the road to the grand uphsaval.
The Sophomore class. It is a fact,
contains some of the most remarkable
students that our High School has
ever produced. No class or student
has ever been able to boast of as much
gray matter in their heads as can the
average SoDnomore. ine leacneis
realize this, for, after laboring for
sometime with a class of strpid
Freshles, their faces brighten up
wheu they see the dignified Sophomore
entering. It is then that thy feel at
liberty to aak the almost unanswer
able qnestions to which the Sopho
more readily responds with a satis
factory answer. It is then that we
receive praise of every sort from our
beloved teachers, ootil we almost feel
that others wished tbey too, were
Sophomores. If you are not satisfied
of the fact we are wonders, just look
at ns as we come aiarcblng in from
recitations. Anyone that isn't a dolt
can readily see that we are all shining
lights. But the other members of the
High School, esptcially the Fresh ies,
do not seem to realize that it is a
great privi'ege for them to eveD gaze
upon us, for I doubt if there will be
oue that will not gaiu a statue in the

After ascertaining that the glass
fixture on the side of the boiler was
called the watergoage. Prof. Turner
lost himself in an elaborate explana
tion of the mechanism. When ther
had li arned all that was worth know
ing about boilers, they retired to the
engine room. There they discovered
the difference between the fly wheel
and the governor, the drive belt and
eccentric, the crank and the cylinder
head, the piston rod and the throttle
valve. They measured the length of
the stroke, ascertained the area of the
piston, noticed the steam pressure and
all the other things needful, then they
ascertained the horsepower by con
sulting the engineer. Then they
visited the box factory engine which
was not running, going through about
the same performance as before, ex

previously instructed by Prof. Tur
