Thursday, June 13 1912
Monday. June 17th, is the date of
the annual school meeting aud there
should be a large attendance. One
director to serve for a period of three
years and clerk to serve for one yar
are to be elected, besides other im
Durtsnt business to be looked after.
We have heard no one mentioned for
the office of director, neither have we
learned of anyone asking for the place,
but the retiring director. Mr. M. D.
Clark, has made sood and we should
like to see him re-elected. He is
greatly interested in making the Hepp
ner s hool econd to none in the state
and is a prorgeesive along this line.
Not knowing anything to the contrary,
we presume that Mr. Clark will ac
cept another term, and we hope that
Interest is crowing in favor of a
new school house for this district. In
fact there is little or no ooposition to
it. The argument is all in favor of
a new and up-to-date structure that
will meet the requirements of a grow
ing co nmonity. In fact, when von
come to think of it, what ia there
that stands ahead of the publio school
svsteni of our country? It is surely
the creat American institution, and it
calls for our liberal support. No
step our people can take will do more
for the community than the building ot
a modern structure in which to educate
our children, and this is going to
come. All our people need to under
stand is that it is needed and the
requirement will be met.
THOUGHT HE WAS
SURELY IN PARADISE
Impressions of a Recent Vis
itor to the Hardman I
Having business that reauired him
to make a trip to the Hardman sec
tion on bst Thursday, a sood friend
of ours, who, by the way, has been a
resident of this county for the past
twenty years and more, daring which
time he has resided in various parts
of the courtv and now thinks he is
located in the midst of the very gar
den soot of the earth on a splendid
rancli bordering the banks of Willow
creek, was for the first time permitted
to set his foot upon that portion of
the conntry surroundirg our neighbor
ing little city. And likewise the den
izers of that burg were for the first
time premitted togaze nDn oneaf those
cheerful ar.d optimi,tio fellows that
have come to us from the north end of
the little isle where now sits and rules
the stood King George.
Our friend was greatly impressed
with what he eaw aid rculd onlv
give expression ti his fieling ty say
ing that the people ud that way we're
certainly livina in a section fiitinglv
described in Milton's" Paradise Lost;"
and pchaps the only rrason they did
not recognise this blissful exiatancu
was because thev did not get no early
eneufh in the rnrrniug. Our friend
is a very r a ly rise'.
But such luxuriant growth of grain
and grass; mch fine deep soil and
delicious water. It is just a little
ahead of anything our friend had ever
came in contact with. He was en
thusiastic, and does not hesitate to say
that the pfoole of Hatdnmn do not
fullv realize what a spleiidid country
they live in. Ihey will some day
That country this year is one vast
v. heat field. Most of the town is
engaged In farming and they sre now
very bnsy. Our friend noted that
Liu-? grass is growing very abundent-
ly in all the yatds about town and he
tikes the liberty to surest that the
use of lawn mowers would assist much
in adding to the beauty of the sur
rounuiinsjs. Bunch fcfa'g on the
ranges anil in many cf the pastures is
thick and tall and could well be cut
and put up for hay. Samples of
grass and grain exhibited by our
friend give ore the impression that
t lie Hardman taction is greatly fvcred
this sea-on and very abundant har
vests will be garnered by the good
people up that way.
