'JTiere are fancier- towns

All the city contentments may

There is no other town
Like your own little town, after
It may be that the street through

Isn't long, isn't wide, isn't
But the neighbors you know in

With welcome your coming
On the glittering streets of the

In the midst of the throng.
You will long, you will long,.

For it isn't by money you meas

If you live and you work and you

In spite of the fact it is small,
You'll find that the town.
That your own little town.

where it comands a fine view - of

basement are two large play
rooms, which are reached by in
clines instead of stairs. On the

finished and are in use. Thev
are well arranged and are well
equipped with apparatus. Some
excellent pictures - adorn the
walls. In the hall there are
drinking fountains. The third
floor is reached by an incline in

Two rooms are so arranged
as to be easily thrown together,
thus making a splendid auditor
ium. This part of the building
will be finished to accomodate
the new county high school,
which will open this fall. Arl
ington deserves to be congratu
lated upon the enterprise shown
in erecting such a fine new school
The writer visited the Heppner
School hut week and checked up
the standardisation cards. The
high school receives the full
number of stars. Each of the
other rooms receive eleven of the
twelve stars. If they can i
range' to secure three features of
play apparatus before the end of
the term, titer will also receive
the full number of stars. The
.teachers and pupils are busy
rounding out the work of the
year. In some of the subjects
the regular work has been eom
pled, and the review is now under
way. The closing weeks of the
year are always stetraous weeks
for both teachers end pupils.
The industrial dub met Friday
afternoon. There is an excellent
spirit among the members, sad

morning while plowing, when
the plow on which he was stand

throwing him face downward on
the sharp edge of one ot the
plow shears. He was immedi
ately brought to lone and was
taken on to Heppner by Dr.
Chick. Pis body was severely
lacerated just below the last rib
on the left tide and it took unite
a number ox sutehes to sew ud
the wound. . At this- writing he
