Young Boys on fx "Tare."
Two young men of Lt-la'id " auaged
to net bold of too much "bonze,"
the other day and they proceeded to
load op in flue style and then they
undertook to "do" the town. They
felt equal to almost anything and
nudurtook to pick a quarrel, for they
were reaiv to fight almost anybody.
Finally John Alderson came to the
county stat and swore out a complaint
against the yoothi in question.
They were arrested and brought to the
county seat and now they are out on
bonds and will bave to stand trial at
the next term of the oircuit court.

Joho Hendricks, who was brought
here from Ruseburg, last week, by
Sheriff RqxhmII. The fellow was held
in the circuit court of Douglas county,
charged with being implicated in the
bank robbery at Glendale. But tbey
failed to connect him closely with
that event and then be was bronght
here and Joe Hammond, who was shot
at on S 'pteinber 15, identifies him as
being the very same fellow who fired
ths shot. So Hendricks has waived
an examination and will have a bear
ing at the next term of the oircuit
court. He has engaged attorney V.
W. Cardwell, of Rosebnrg, to defeud
him. His brother oatne up from
Rosebarii, Saturday to see aboat mak

How Rural Schools Csn Bs Ussd
The school must offer vocational
training. This does not mean that ev
ery school shall be a trade school. It
does not even mean that the school
shall aim specifically to teach trades.
It does mean, however, that we will
come to realize that the schools in pre
paring the pupils for complete' living
must bear In mind the fact that voca
tion is a large part of life, says Les
lie's Weekly. Consequently vocational
training In its broadest possible as
pects must be one of Uie largest phases
of school activity. This may not mean
the Introduction of elementary agricul
ture into all the rural schools, but it
will mean the utilization of agricul
tural material in the training of tha
pupil, so that If he enters the agricul
tural vocation he will be adequately
prepared for It.
The school also must develop the
spirit of social or community service.
I know of nothing better In this line
than the plan used In Maine of or
ganizing school Improvement leagues.
It Is deferable also for the school to
become n social center, or at least one
of the social centers, of the neighbor
hood. The school ought to play a large
part In the life of the mature people
of the community, nnd It may well net
as a sort of rallying center for the ed
ucational Interest of adults as well as
of children. The school must definite.
ly co-operate with other Institutions of
, '"e community, such na the church, the
grange, improvement societies, library,
etc. In this connection there should
be frequent Joint meeting of tenehers
patrons for the discussion
both of school topics and of subjects of
I general community Interest.
