Ml SALMON . NOTES.
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Cunning of Hood
River were guests of Mr. and Mrs. C. K
Waldo of tliis place Saturday and Sun
day. .Mrs. Henderson, a sister of Mrs. A. II.
Jewett, and Iter daughter Jennie have
returned to Portland. Aeolus Jewett,
who has not improved in health, has
been taken to a sanitarium in Portland.
The Enterprise is responsible for the
Mntemt'nt that a law oflice is to he
erecttd in White Salmon. It niijrht
have been stated in the same connection
that Cultus Charley and wife will spend
the winter in Paris. One conieB ae near
to the truth as the other.
Inquiries are already coming in con
cerning the whool bonds. Two letters
have been received by the school clerk
from Eastern firms.
The new school building at Trout
Lake is a credit to the people there.
It advertises them as a patriotic and
progressive people. Our old trap is a
Every new comer in a city judges it
by its public buildings. A country com
munity is judged by its school facilities.
If you want improvements, . you muM
have people and people demand good
school houses. That's why the oppo
nents of a new building stayed away
from a meeting to which all were invit
ed and then when those w ho did attend
unanimously instructed the directors
of the district to call a bond election,
this same public spirited element whet
ted their knives and slid 21 negative
ballots into the box "agin edicashun."
At a recent convention of physicians
in Portland it was stated that in a fami
ly of hereditary lunatics there were 88
children including six time? twins, twice
triplets, and four times quadruplets. Im
agine hath night in such a family! Poor,
feeble-minded Dad trying to hang onto
an armful of w riggling, squirming trip
lets, while "Maw" stirs the quadruplets
about in the suds with a clothes-stick,
Scourin' 'em fer Sunday.
It's funny how the freshet in the
creek has roiled our village spring water
system till it looks like old-fashioned
' molasses with carpet tacks and caraway
seeds in it.
THE SCHOOL BOND SITCATION.
J. P. Turner of White Salmon has
filed an affidavit at Goldondale with the
object of preventing the sale of the
school bonds recently voted at the spe
cial election. Mr. Turner is not to be
blamed too much. He lias been select
ed to appear in the open because of his
innocence and lamb-like docility, while
the Shack-nasty Jims and the Sear-face
Charleys keep under cover. There are
others. These others some of them
have more to gain and some as little to
Schools make taxes, and some men
would have the American flag hauled
down from the national capital to save
their portion of the cost of keeping it
We have noticed (hat two classes of
citizens are enemies of new school house
propositions. Those who don't know
children, because they have never felt
the love of a child, nor protected one,
and those whose children never have a
"balanced ration" or a full set of under
clothing. The comfort ot a half a hund
red little folks in winter means nothing
to them. There's a moral issue here
that won't dow n. We may temporarily
advertise our lack of patriotism and lo
cal pride, but new people are coming
every one of them loyal to the public
school, and White Salmon will yet look
with pride at a new school house where
her children may be housed in comfort.
The "hog-wallow" days are about over.
There's not a foot of land in this
community that is.: worth what it
would be if we. bud a good graded
school housed la a comfortable and
Men will invest in Hood River and
pay three times as much for poorer
land rather than settle with their fam
ilies in a place where the woods shelter
men who go to bed with their boots on
and have a war dance whenever an
improvement is suggested.
The directors and the people will
stand by the school and sooner or
later, its enemies will, slink hack into
the brush to curse the civilization that
reaches their pocket book fbr the bene
fit of the children, of the community.

C. H. Cromwell expects to leave for
Hood River next week, where he will
resume his work as principal of the

Dark returned last week from the McCoy
creek mines, bringing back a consider

Amos Underwood went to Stevenson
.Monday, with a petition lor a new
bridge over White Salmon, and a re
quest that a road be., built from the
bridge down the west bank of the White

would shorten the distance to Trout

Rain began falling here on Saturday

the first heavy rainfall of the season,
soaking the ground up thoroughly. A
good stand of fall sowed grain is now
assured, as It was feared by iminy that
the grain sowed early in the fall, and
which had sprouted would dry up it
therdry weather continued much long
er. Most of the grain sowed lor hay hi
this vicinity this fall Is bald, or beard
less barley, it being a surer crop limn
wheat, and it makes better and strong

Eastern Oregon claim that a ton ot
barley hay Is worth as much for horse
feed as a ton and a half of wheat hay.
If this be the case, it will pay to try it

consisted of bags of candy, pin cushions,
