THE SCHOOL M A'AM .
Q E N T R A L POINT has been
honored and brightened dur
ing the past few days by the
presence of a hundred or more
of the “ Best People on Earth.”
We refer to the bevy of bright
and winsom school nxa’ams who
captured the town last Sunday
evening and held it in willing
subjection till Wednesday night.
The school ma’ am is one who
every good citizen delighteth to
honor. She it is who takes a
roomful of unkempt, uncultured,
untutored and, alas, too often
unwashed little savages, and by
dint of hard work, infinite tact,
many smiles, an occasional tear
and, in some extreme cases,
maybe a little judicious use of
Mother Nature’s spanking ma

dry bunches of elemental atoms
o f mind and matter ingots of
that precious product from which
later great and good men and
women are moulded and presi
dents, millionaires and editois
are coined. The school ma’am
is an optimist. After devoting
years of her life to training the
pure, innocent and flexible child-
mind in the ways of righteous
ness and knowledge, only too
often, in later years, to see her
male pupils develop into dudes,
convicts or decorations for the
reverse end of a cigarette, she is
not discouraged, but with a “ sub
lime audacity of faith” in herself
and the animal called man she
resigns her $40-a-month job in
the district school and accepts a
salaryless position as private
governess, housekeeper, cook and
maid-of-all-work for some big,
overgrown kid whose chief stock
in trade is a big bump of self-
esteem, the whiskey and tobacco
habits, a propensity to “ lick”
everybody who is smaller and
weaker than himself, a pair of
heavenly eyes and a beautiful
whisker; and, God bless her, she
starts in to make a gentleman
out of him and sometimes she
Schoolmasters are all right in
their place, but it is the dear
little school ma’am that editors
and other great men most love.
It is her whom we delight to
honor and to her, the great
educator and civilizer of man
kind, we lift our hat with rever
ence and respect.

above the dam of the Gold Hill Canal
Company, such a tunnel would drain,
and lay bare over two and one-half
miles of the rich channel of the Rogue
River, without interfering with the
water power of the Condor Water and
Power Company or of the Gold Hill
Canal Company. On examination of
the Rogue River it is evident that there
are two channels, tho present channel [
and an ancient channel, running paral
lel with and adjoining each other. In
other words, when we take into con
sideration the present channel and the
ancient channel, such a tunnel as above
mentioned would drain and lay bare
about five miles or 26,490 feet of river
channel. The necessary length of
such a tunnel would be about 9,240 feet.
Cheap electric power with which to
operate the drills and to move the cars
bearing the debris from the tunnel
may be obtained from either of the
two companies above mentioned. All
necessary timber is obtainable at rea
sonable prices in the immediate vicin
ity; the climate is simply ideal. Such
a tunnel as above mentioned would not X
only drain the two channels of the
river, but would in itself furnish a
great water power for the generation
of electricity. The tunnel in its course
would cut many of the gold bearing
ledges and veins known to exist in the
mountain known as Gold Hill. Among
said ledges would be the Gold Hill
Ledge, which in 1866 yielded over half

date the mines of Jackson County have
