are sisters. The Wares have been
living in Eugene this winter.
Death again invaded the family
circle of the Bennett family when
the wife, Myrtle, aged 27, was tak
en Thursday night after a long ill
ness. Her mother, Mrs. Henry Ellis,
was with her at Willow creek for
three weeks, then she was brought
here but later taken to The Dalles
to the hospital where death came
as a result of dropsy and other com
plications; Her husband, Bert Ben
nett, and a daughter Alice, 7 years
of age, are left to mourn her early
passing, as well as her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. H. C. Ellis, four brothers,
Howard, Mitchell, Elmer and Cecil,
and a sister, Mrs. Joe White of Wil
low creek. A son Jesse was killed
by a passing car in September two
years ago when the Bennetts were
living at Messner. Funeral services
for Mrs. Bennett were held Sunday
at the church with the Nazarene
pastor in charge. A quartet con
sisting of Mr. Barlow, Mrs. Coats,
Mr. Marschat and Miss Shellenber
ger, with Mrs. Titus at the piano,
sang. Pallbearers were Mr. Cooney,

Friction at school and over school
matters was formerly the common
thing here, but for the past three
years there has been comparative
peace and quiet. The climax came
when a young high school girl spoke
in a rude and disrespectful manner
to Miss McMahon, the matter was
taken to the board and being dissat
isfied with their findings in the case,
Miss McMahon resigned, leaving
Monday for Spokane where she will
visit It' is indeed unfortunate to
have difficulties of this sort in the
school. The girl was suspended,
and there are three or four more
youngsters in the school who might
well be, or perhaps receive an old
fashioned application of "hickory
oil" or birch, to remove some of the
super egotism with which they feel
endowed. When children defy a
teacher the modern methods of ed
ucation might well be dispensed
with for a time and some of the
older means used. The board han
dled this matter in a very discreet
way and no favoritism was shown
whatsoever. Miss Marian Camp
bell of Portland Is here and has
taken up Miss McMahon's work.
G. A. Harju and son John left
Saturday night for Mass, Mich. The

boy who was here with his father,
left the first of the year. Mr. Harju
thought he had the Boardman

for a year. The Hereims have mov
ed on to the Harju place.
