HE WAS A FORMER RESI
DENT OF GRANTS PASS
Garfield 'Gunne(l, a former Ogden
school boy and for the last four years
in the government service as teacher
in the Philippine Islands, left Hong
Kong, China, yesterday on the start
toward America, exporting to reach
Ogden tarly in September. Upon ar
riving home he will have made a trip
around the world, will have visited
most of the well-known places and
niauy almost unheard of places in the
Far East and in Asia generally and
Europe. Hs haa visited practically
every part of the Pliilppines and
studied the people and conditions, so
that his letters home are accurate and
valuable descriptions of that archi
pelago. Its lands, its waters and its
reoples. Garfield was attending the
University of Oregon when requested
by the United States authorities at
WaPhingon to aid in the work of edu
cating the young people In those
faraway islands, so that he hits been
away from Ogden somo six years and
many persons make friendly Inquiry
about hi in and await almost im
patlenly the opportunity to welcome
him home, even if for a brief stay. It
is understood that the young man has
been requested by the authorities hers
to return to the same work and that
he promised to do so, thoonh at the
sat-riciie of purposes and ambitious
along contrary lines.
The editor of the Standard haa taken
a personal interest in the career of
this yoong worker and traveler and
knowing bis ability to ohservn aud
study iwople and things, aud toll of
tlieuj through his pen, has the hope
and expectation of getting from him,
in time some entertaining matter for
our read rs. He haa - made the
Philippines Inlands a playground
as well as a place for bard, dvoted
labor for the natives haa made Japan
pleasure, resort during vacations and
when seeking health, ami is particu
larly well qualified and preiared to
speak and write of those countries.
