Dear Editor: -
I , Everything is pretty
much 0. K. out here, only we
need rain. The farmers have
bWn rolling along seeding, rain
or no rain; Drake, Lovgren, Beck,
Davidson, Scrivner. Stewart, all
the big ranches.
The old Idea schoolhouse has
been torn down and a brand new
one built. The old one was usr d
to build a' stable for the pupils'
saddle horses. We now have the
nobbiest schoolhouse in Gilliam
county. The builder was Mr.
Joe Lenger of Condon. School
started last Monday with Miss
GlaJys M. Brown of Condon, as
teacher. Miss Brown is a grad
uate of the Oregon State Normal
School at Monmouth. She makea
her borne, with Mrs. Henry
Stewart during the term. Look
out young fellers or vou will get
your hearts busted for she is
some handsome lass!
I A si'hoolma'm out here in the
hills asked an old fellow if .he
was a grammarian. "No ma'm,"
said be, "no ma'm, I am a Miss
ouriart 1 was born id the grand
old state of Missouri." The
schoolma'm had a big laugh about
it end so did ther old Miasoorian
when he was alone. He was
talking with the same lady a few
days later and she asked Mm if
he ever had themeasels. He
said, "oh yes, frequently ma
dame, quite frequently." (The
old sonof a-gun). Some of
these old foxy grandpas are a
whole lot worse than they look,
yes, a good deal worse than some
of these people who talk about
'em. . '
Mr. Editor, I have often
thought to ask you if you be
lieve in phrenology. If not, I
will hav to disagree with you and
the disagreement will pain me
very much. I think that every
bump, hook and crook insa man 'a
head'and face means something,
if we know how to read tl em.
Not only that but the walk, talk
laugh indicate character. I have
studied phrenology a little, but
enough to convince me beyond
the shadow of a doubt that it ".is
straight goods. I was examined
by a first elasa phrenologist sev
eral years ago, and had my
fortune told too by a long haired,
be-whiskered individual who
looked like he would be a first
class hand to keep around to
prevent moonshine from becom
ing too aged, but lie might
stagger onto the truth for all
that Both of them handed me
several bunches of beautiful
flowers. The phrenologist told
me that if I waa well educated
I would be a writer and apeaker
second to none, and that I 'was a
natural trail blazer and leader of
men. Well I have never led any
men yet but I have blazed a few
trails, and the education part, I
know, is the one thing needful
wit b me. I have grieved, fretted
and lamented for years about
being so poorly educated but
after reading abont the thons
asids of American soldiers in
the World War who could neither
read nor write, I feel pretty
highly educated after all.
The fortune teller told me that
I would live to be 101 years old
and would be married four times,
but I could not get him to tell
me" what (Jispdsftlon "I wouTd
make of all those women. He
said it was best not to know.
I suppose I will talk the first two
to death before I learn better,
and the next on I imagine,
I will feed so well on spuds
That she'll run away with ,
