And she said he always gave them
as they one by one went to their first
schools a very serious talking tooubout
their duly to the ehllilren. His idea
was what might help one child would
ruin a dozen and when be bud to pun
ish a child he never did it before Hie
School. He said lie hud had to switch
nine of his lit tic boys hut lie could
aay among the univy children .that
bad come under his care there were
very few but what talking to them
alone and trying to cultiyate what
was good in their natures and if they
had wronged any one to h:tye them go
mid ukk their forglvuuss very often was
better than two or three-whippings.
He thought whippinglujured a child's
sell'respeet and pride, and, these were
both quuiities that he thought ought
to be cultivated. One your ago this
old teacher went to his reward nt the
age of seventy-ceven and his sons are.
men Of middle age, both prufftssors of.
colieages, one in Ohio and tho oilier In
TenucBsee, his daughter said they have
none of them ever luid down many
rules to govern their schools by, when
they were teachers iu the public schools
but one of the rules her father gave for
her to follow was tolteep an oversight
one her school during play hours. She
said that among the large boys there
was someone you could trust to look
lifter the boys, and she always made it
a rule to go out with the girls and take
a part in their romps and plays, and
some days in the week, they would in
vite the boys to come and play with'
them. Said sometimes they wouJd
slug and march, sometimes pluy base
or 'blackiuau, and - sometimes the
boys would .invite them to come and
play ball over on their ground,' She
said she did not think many of the
girls was much of a success as bull
players, butrexercie was what she
was wanting for them. As she thought
she was lespouible for their bodies as
well as their minds. I think a Veal
consciencious. Touchers arn every
dollar that they get and should be up-.
held by the palniua of the school and
uot a 'IPatron," but I am personally
well acquainted wi.b some of the
teachers in tiie school and I think if
we all had tried to do our duty us
faithfully as they have, perhaps they
would have an easier time. I have
nevei visited, nor-been on an investi
gation tour up to tire school, and am
not acquainted with the gentleman
that is the1 principal of the school now.
But I know by my own experience
that a teucher may be' unjust and not
mean to be. When I, was-going to
school committing anything to mem;
ory was uot work for me, it was noth-
lugbut play, while my seat mate,, a
girl some older than I was, would
study so fiiithfully and hard and then
very ofter w.ouid fail, so one eveuing
at home be spoke about it and said he
did not know why she could u. t have'
her lessons us well as I did, as she was
the oldest. We wero then reciting in
Hirk hams' grammer and it was as
tedious to me as an otd law book, but
that made no difference to me about
memorizing, whether I understood it.
That was another question. Now, I
thluk it was very doubtful, as I kuotv
that I was to young, but I could suy it
oil like a parrot. I 1o!t( our teacher
that if I studied my lessons as long us
she did, I could leiu-ii a dozen pages
whilu she was leuriiig one, i think
that teachers ought'to Study the capa
cities and natures of the children un-,
der their care. Some have a talent in
one direction and some' in an other,
and some seem to be almost a blank us
fur as learning anything from books.
But will go out Iu the world and seem
to learn from their associates and Bur
rouudlugs, so they will pass through
the world and you will uot know how
Iguoraut they really are. But if B. D.
is really telling the truth and there
has any ot the children bad to be
whipped as severely as he says. I do
uot thluk I should hire a mau at a
dollar a day, but would try what a lit
tle sound whipping would do at home,
aud If that did no good, I think a
oourse at the reform school might be
beuiadal. I do not thluk any teacher
whips for the fun of whipping and I
never kuew a good child to be abused.
I did know of one teacher, he had
been a very successful teacher, but had
not seemed quite like himself for a few
days and when he called his school to
order he begun a wholesale business
and before he could be overpowered he
beat one boy quite badly hut he was

Found a Skeleton.
Last week, men at work on the flsh
wbeels on the beach above the Dalles,
In an embankment which had washed
out, found a human skeleton. It was
only partly exposed, and there was
nothing ieft of the remuius but flesh
less bones. These were embeded quite
deep in the sand, and appeared us
though they had been buried there.
From ail appearances, the skele
ton had been in the ground
for years, as ho lames showed that
they hud been subjected to the ele
ments for a long time. No conjecture
can be termed as to the identity of the
skeleton, and the poor fellow may
have been drowned or met his death
by foul means. Before Jim Cook was
hanged, iu 1879, he gave intimations
that some citizeut of The Dalles who
had mysteriously disappeared had
been murdered and were buried on the
beacb. Soon after his disclosures were
mude a skeleton was found in the
sand, and this may te another of the
Victims. There was a time In the his
tory of The Dalles when law aud order
were not respected, aud the washing
aw ay of the beach, as happened dur
iug the last flood, may brlug some
things to light which are hidden now.
Oregon Sugar Beets.
A bulletiu of the Stale Agricultural
college orj sugar beets in Oregon, em
braces a resume of the work doue. The
bujletin contains comparative climatio
tables showing the conditions under
which the experiments were conduc
ted. A Summary of the analysis for
1 H'Ji shows on average for the state of
15.70 per cent sugar, w ith a purity of
78.08 per cent against 13.75 per cent,
and a purity of 17.il per cent for 1891.
.Out of sixty-five' samples analyzed
in 1802, only eleven samples showed
less than 12 per cent sugar, and forty
one gave over H per cent sugar, the
the extremes being 9.4 per cent. Some
of tiie conclusions reached are; first,
good sugar beots can be produced In
Oregon; second, they can be produced
at a price which a factory can afford
to pay; third, the yield compares fav
orably with that of other states now
raising beets for the manufacture of
sugar; fourth, large beets to not con
tain suVarge a precentage of sugar as
small beets, and the purity is less;
fifth, beets could be profitably substi
tuted by the farmers for bare follow.

Nicaragua Canal Bill.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 2.-Cap-
tain W. L. Merry denies that the canal
company had any lobby in congress
working for or against the Mallory
bill. He added: "The failure of the
Nicaragua canal bill in the house was
not a surprise to me, for Mr. Catch-
jugs, chairman of the committee on
rules, stated in December that congress
would not have time to consider it,
and that it would not pass the 63d con
gress. The passage of the house bill
would have been an advantage to the
company, eveu if its terms were not
entirely acceptable, fur the reason that
it would have gone to a conference
committee with the senate bill, aud
also because, whatever the result, the
enactment of the measure agreed upon
thereby would serve as a vantage
ground for further legislation, if de
emed advisable. If. lobby Inflences
could control the rules committee, It
must be admitted that interests ad
verse to the canal may have been act
ive. The Pacific coast delegation
spared no effort to pass the bill through
the bouse, aud Its members deserve
the thanks of our citizens more could
not have been done by them. We
may look more hopefully for the ac
tion of the 54 congress, aud mean
while it is gratifying that events have
proven that the congress of the United
States would have passed the bill had
it been permitted. It is to be hoped
that it wilt haye another opportunity
betore European interests place the
canal beyond American influence.
The canal enterprise moves slowly,
but, although disappointed, we must
not be discuraged; 11 will see Its day
