The writer was mistaken when he
said we had had but one application for
our school. There have been some four
or five, but no steps have been taken to
hire any one yet. We want to have
some six or seven months' school, and if
there is any teacher without a position
she might do well to send in her appli
cation. As we want a good teacher, we
do not expect to get one for nothing.
All those who signed the subscription
paper to build a school bouse are noti
fied to pay up, as this money is needed
in constructing the new house.

operation a plant which attracts those
who give more than a passing notice to
what is to be seen along the line they
are traveling. They are what is termed
tie treating retorts, and were installed
there about six months ago, the plant,
including electric power, costing about
$100,0C0, and being one of three which
are used on the coast, the others being
on the Southern Pacific and Union. Six
or seven hundred tiea are loaded on to
an iron carriage, dumped into the re
torts, the fluid, which is composed
principally of creosote, is turned on and
they remain in the bath about six hours,
when they are taken out and piled up to
season. At present they have 76,000
ties at Wyeth which have undergone
the process. It Is said that such a
treatment will extend the usefulness of
the ties from three to four years.
The 1905 fair com mission receives some
curious offer of oddities. Some weeks
ago a fir tree 400 feet high and not over
3ti inches in diameter at the base, was
reported, and later, another tree, one
half of which was petrified and the oth
er half still tree, was offered to the com
mission. These teem a little out of the
common, but Oregon produces such won
derful things that, in all probability, the
commission will have these things in
vestigated to see if they are what is
claimed for them.
