THE LOTTERY MAN
A Rhymed Review
By jfiussell Holman
Jovial Jack was a bachelor,
Not very strong for the girls; -
Said it was luck that selected your
Wife from the lemons and pearls.
Offered himself in a lottery, "
(Chances a dollar a throw),
. Promised to marry the maiden who
won it; nis eye on the dough.
'Long came a fair one named Helen,
And, like the famed Lady of Troy,
Captured his heart in a twinkling; but
Brief was his moment of joy.
Homely old Liz won the drawing, and
Jack faced a terrible plight,
Tied to a spinster forever, til
Nora, the cook, spread the light,
Showed that the coupon was stolen, so
Lis, in strategic retreat,
Left all the honors to Helen, and '
Jack came to life toute suite. .
Handsome and blithe Wallace Raid is

It seems that -there it a clause in
the old city charter whereby the
council may levy an additional mill

exceeding an increase of six per cent
over the previous year's assessment

Forest Grove, but that the law for

extra money that the ten mills will

HUBER SCHOOLS REOPEN
WITH NEW TEACHERS
After being closed several days as
a result of the dismissal of one teach
er and the resignation of the princi
pal, Aloha-Huber schools are again
in session with new teachers. Mr.
McLacey is principal and his assist
ants are Mrs. Eckes of Portland and
Mrs. Narver of Beaverton.
The trouble arose when the pri
mary teacher, Mrs. Tula Bonnar, of
Portland, slapped the little daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Ingram, as a punish
ment for alleged misconduct, accord
ing to reports from that community.
The parents objected to the manner
of discipline and demanded the re
moval of the teacher. A trial was,
held before the Board of Directors
consisting of Dan Shaw, chairman.
L. Kinneman and A. Sundberg, with
J. T. York as clerk. Attorney Mc
Guire, of Portland, reoresented the
teacher and E. J. McAlear, of Hills-

days were consumed in the hearing
and the teacher was dismissed. It is
understood that she wilt file suit to
collect her salary but the Board feels
that the rights of the district have
been protected. Principal Cochran re

An Iowa professor urges that every

The only peaceful times they have

An' when I start a-rap-a-tap,
The nearest ones exclaim
Close up the windows and the doors

Of course when I first started in '''
No two sounds were alike
You see the reason for that was
I knew not how to strike.
An' when I twisted on the snares
To tiirhten no the hide
The first time I could not do it
Although I tried and tried.
But I picked up a few ideas

Much better than I did.

following is from Wednesday's
Oregonian concerning the action of
tne State Highway Commission:
nepreseniaiives irom wasnington
Columbia and Clatsop counties, asked
the commission to designate as a
state road the so-called "inside loop"
This the commission declined to do.
The delegation next said that if the
commission would make the survey
the counts would grade at their
own expense and some day thi state
might take the road over. Chairman
Booth suggested that the quickest
way to get the road would be for the
three counties to designate the route
as a market road, then aiwly their i
funds on it. As a market road proj
ect the counties can call on the hiirh
way department for a survey and by
applying their market road funds on
the route it can be devel ithin
