have begun on Sir Walter Scott's
. . Since the bridges were washed
mt between here and Jaoro, tbe
km socket ball team could not
get ewer to Mora, and Gn
Valley to play their scheduled
rmm. As the games have had
to be postponed indefinitely it is
doubtful if they can be flayed
off at all this season. - The team
expects however to meet Hep-
ner, soon, at Heppner. As each
team has won one game, and
this one decides the champion
ship of theeounty, it will with
out doubt be well worth seeing.
Professor Poak has been putt

Old library books were collected

8r& NOTSON, Supt.-
State Superintendent Churchill
has designated March 7th aa Buy
bank Day for tbe schools of tbe
state. Within a few days each
teacher will receive a circular
containing suggestions as tothe,
way in which the day may be
observedL Let us make the day
one worth "while. Luther Bur-
bank has none a great work for
the world, and it is fitting that
we should show our appreciation
before he leaves bis present field
of labor.
It would be perfectly ia keep
ing with the proper observance
of Burbank Day for those schools
which hare not done so, to or
ganise their industrial crabs. I
presume each teacher has recerre
d tbe mf orsnatioa from the Agri
cultural College la regard to the
plans for this yean- If not write
to Pro! H. a Seymour, st Csr
vallis, for tbe circulars of infor
mation. This year, these who
are ef dub age will not be per
mitted to enter any exhibits at
county fair except dub exhibits.

This does not mean that you
must belong to a club, but you
must enroll for club work and
do project work.. There will be
some miscellaneous prises -for
pupils under the club age, bat
none for those of dob age. We
have advanced to that place sow
where the pupils, patrons, and
teachers understand the educati
onal value of the industrial work,
and it is not necessary to attempt
to pay each pupil for his work in
order to get them to do industrial
work. The pupils are beginning
to see that the biggest prise is
tn what they learn by doing Che
work. However, we expect to
make the prizes worth while, but
ribbons will be more highly ap
preciated, no doubt, than the
money. I trust that many clubs
will be organised on Burbank
Day, and that those already or
ganised will make the day one
of profit "" ;,;
Senator Lane has sent a quan
tity of garden and flower seeds to
the office. -; Pupils who contem
plate doing something in the line
of gardening may have the seeds
if they will call or write for them.
As the warm- days tempt the
pupils to play vigorously, they
are apt to come into the school'
room quite warm. Often they
will throw open the windows and
sit in a current air for some time
to "cool off." Teachers should
to it that no pupil sits thus
in a draft It may mean discom
fort for a short time, , but it is
(better to be somewhat uncomfort
able for a few minutes than to
can not ventilated properly
without a pupil sitting in a draft,
it is advisable to have the pupils
move about or take some light
calisthentie exercises while the
windows are opened wide. Many
teachers neglect to see that there
some provision made for in
troducing moisture into the at
mosphere of the school room.
As I have suggested before, a
tall baking powder can filled with
water and kept en the stove will
answer the purpose very well.

Grand Surprise Party
Rabies Scare On
Yeomen Initiate
A regular old fashionen pound
party was given Rev. J. L. Jones
and family last Tuesday evening
February 22nd when the mem
bers of the church and a host of
friends flocked into the parsonage
and loaded the big dining room
table with good things, leaving
many other gifts also, .for which
there was no room on the table,
The party coming on the eve of
M j , birthday made the
, , . V . i .11
occasion doubly . pleasant to all
concerned. The pastor however,
tells us that while ha enjoys)
greatly the good wishes and gifts
of bis friends, -heebjectr stren-
riously to being taken in so com-
pletely by Mr. and Mrs Knap pen-1
berg, who made the pretence of

people and children among them.
Before ta auprised eouple bad
a chance to. recover, all rushed
down to the Buffing-ton building
on Main Street to spend the eve
nig playing games, snd having a
general good tirae. It certainly
proved a most enjoyable even
ing for all. Refreshments were
served and everyone went home
in the best of humor. .
February 26th is the nine
teenth anniversary of the organ
ization of the Brotherhood of
American Yeomen, and to cele
brate that important event
every member of lone Homestead
6289 made a desperate effort to
land st least one new member to
be initisted at the special meet
ing held In the Yeomen Hall
over Benders store. Not all
succeded in getting a candidate
but enough, were secured to
make an interesting class of 18
who entered -the bewildering
mass of yeomanry. The short
form, was exemplified owing to
the lengthy program in charge
of the ladies. The evening wss
spent with songs and games and
an the old fashioned "Virginia
BeeL" was danced. The refresh
ments were served by the com
mittie, and the new candidates
were stuffed until he begged for
mercy. Nona of them were
injured however and all reported
for business Tuesday morning
