At the Iliuh School meeting held
here Saturday five out of the six
school districts iu the valley reported
favorably on the project of consolida

tbiit the residents of that district
feared an increase In the expense of
running the district aud also that the
transportation of pupils could not be
State Superintendent Ackeriuan was
agaiu here to spetik lu furor of tne
project, as was also President Camp
bell of the State Uuiversity at Kugeue
aud County Superintendent of Sohools
A mooting was hold Friday night
at Kriin k ton, at which whatever oppo
sition there hnd been to the consoli
dated district was dissipated by those
who were present to speiik ou the
J. lie meeting was culled to order at
10 o'clock iu Artisan's hall by 0. II.
Vatigban, secretary, who announced
that K C. Sherriob, who had Leeu
chosen chairman of the mooting, wits
unable to be present and Prof. Wiley
was selected to till the. poMltlon and
stated that the metiting had been call-
d for the purpose of receiving the re
ports of the committees who had been
appointed ut a previous meeting to
pan tana the rations districts and dis
co. er what the sentiment was iu re
gard to the consolidation plan, lie
v-alled for the report of district No. 2
lrst the ! rank ton district.
M. II. Nlckelsen then reail a report
troni that district showing that it was
he sone of Ujo meeting which had
oeen held there that it was unani
mously foi the consolidation. Mr.
Nicke sun explained that the report
lid not express the sentiment of tne
whole district, us there were some
who were opposed to the movement,
lie mid, however, that when the mat
ter was explained more fully to them
be felt quite sure that they would lie
in favor of it. lie was opposed to it
at the start, he said, but whs now
heartily in favot of it. H. li. iNoole
from this district also ml J that he
thought whutover opposition there
was at Frank ton to the consolidation
could be wou ovei.
The report of the Pine drove dis
trict was uoxt made by Mr. Masou,
who stated I hat out of a canvas of 4b
residents of his district be hud found
28 for consolidation mid 1H against.
lint explained that out of the 1H in
opposition 'l he thought were still
open to conviction aud said that even
Ir it tvaffound that the two upper
districts, mentioning Udell and Crap
per, were against it ho thought the
obieot sought for could still be ao
couiplished by consolidating the
lower four districts, which lie was
unite sure would be iu favor of it.
j He then . sked wnetnera man aud nie
wife who both owned property were
entitled to vote on the scho 1 proposi
tion aud was assured by the chairman
that thov were. It was developed by
luestions from Mr. Mason that beads
of families are also entitled to vote
and that in a case where the wife
owned the properly, she was entitled
to vote as a taxpayer and her husband
also as head of the family. Mr. Ma
son then made a lew remarks about
the transportation feature of the con
solidation, saying that if it was not
include 1 in the proposition he wanted
it understood that he was against it
and would work against it. lie was
assured by Sunt. Ackerman that it
was included, who also stud in answer
to a Question that one vole would
cover both propositions, aud that the
transportation feature would stand
until it wa rescinded by another vote,
Secretary Vaughan read the report
from the Hood Kiver district which
was to the elftit that all those who
bad been seen in regard to the matter
were uuainmoti: ly in favor of it.
A report wss received from Odell
to the effect 1 (:it HO per ceut of the
residents there nt re In favor of it and
that when the transportation matter
was explained tLey would all be in fa
vor of it.
Mr. Ackermiin then spoke on the
mattei saying that as far as ths quel'
ttou of iucreu.-ed taxation was cou
oerned he thoi.glit that he would be
atiite safe in put ing that im-tead of in
creasing the levy for school purposes
that it would result iu thu eud In
reduction. The system, he "Raid,
which it was the intention to inaugti
rate would do away with several
teachers, a fact which would probably
take care of the exponeo ot truuspor
tatiou. He demonstrated very tirac
tioally what an all around benefit the
consolidated district nnd digit school
would be to the valley, and answered
a number of question iu regard to
the same i atisfactorily. The strongest
:eature of Mr. Ackermnn's argument
was that with one executive head to
superintend the whole district, the
schools would be brought under re
ginie of sysematio instruction that
could be reached iu uo other way. In
addition, the pupil i would have the
b nefit ot nine months' schooling as
against seven or seven and a half now
He also said that with a high school
established h re K per cent of pupils
who reached the eighth grade would
probably recui.e a high school educa
tiou Wheieas, if tbete was no high
K-hool the petcentage who would con
tinue in school above that grade
would be very small, aud that the tax
payers of this community and others
similarly situated owed it to the ris
ing geueratiou to give them the best
educational facilities that could be ou
As there bud been no report from
the Crapper district, and Mr. Mo
Curdy, who was one of the committee
from that dictrict to ascertain what
the sentiment was there, had arrived,
be was asked how that district stood,
and said that in a house to house can
vsss he had found about 40 against
and 4 for consolidation, and didn't
think the sentiment could be changed.
J. K. Ualligan, one of the other
members of the committee from Odell
then made a report similar to the one
of Mr. Cams, aud Koswell Shelley
from the same district said that be
bjected to the Inference from Mr.
Mason that there was any question
as to bow Odell stood in the matter.
He wanted it understood that Odell
was for the proposition first, last and
all the time and that when it was put
to a vote would be found on the right
side. That the high school questiou
was the most important one now lie
fore the taxpayers of the valley and
took precedent of all othtrs, as w
must be In a position to provide as
good schooling as could be found any
where aud not have to say to proposed
iuvestors In property here that we
ad no high school course.
Presideut Campbell of the state un-
versity at Eugene, was then asked to
address the meeting, and In opeuing
bis talk said that he could not see
how there waa anything in the way ol
the proposed plan of consolidation.
That nowhere in the state, perhaps,
were the conditions lor putting the
plan into execution so ideal and
raoticable as here. ThH. be said.
was a business age and It required of
those who weut forth iu quest of suc
cess iu any profession or business
that they must be equipped with an
education seooud to none. There is
nothing so flue as the human mind,
and more particularly the human
mind at the period of receptivity.
his period is usually at the time
when a student is about to enter the
high school, and It is then that the
foundation of future intellects is laid.
Under the conditions sought for by
consolidating industrial and mental
raiuiug could be combined and a cou-
itiou of development brought about
i student or scholar that could be
reached in uo other way. He spoke
about the rapid advauces Oregon has
made iu eduoatioual mailers during
be past ten years aud said that where
here were only ten high schools in
he state at that time there wero now
JO aud impiested on his hearers the
necessity of establishing one here.
Hood Kiver, be said, had the reputa-
lon of leadlug the state lu the uiiple
business and it bad now the opportu
nity of leading iu the plan of consoli
dating its school districts and estab-
ishiug a high school.
Kev. Mr. llersbuer then spoke
briefly ou the question aud intro
duced a resolution continuing the
present committees lu the various
districts and appointing three addi
tional members on each of them to
oonttuue the work of an educational
campaign, which was carried.
i'rof. Thompson reported from the
Barrett dlsttiot that as far as he was
able to ascertain the consolidation
was satisfactory to residents in that
district. There was some opposition,
but he thought that when it was bet
ter understood there would not be
Mr. Shelley moved that the meeting

A horticulturist of Maryland has,
after several years of experimenting,
discovered a way to revive old fruit
trees and keep them iu bearing con
dition long after their supposed stage
of ' refuluesa has passed. As the
cause of decay iu a tree is its inabil
ity to carry the sap to all of Its
blanches, heaping the tree lessens the
area to tie traversed, mo amount oi
top to be removed varying according
to the farmer s Judgment, lione dust
and ashes must then be administered
as a fertilizer, the one In the autumn
and the other iu the spring. It Is
necessary to iutroduoe the bone dust
through holes iu the ground near the
roots ot the tree, wbilo the ashes may
be sprinkled over the top surface of
the earth. The ashes leach aud will
not wash down. A question naturally
arises as to how far from the body of
the tree the holes for the fertilizer
must run. The scientist says you
must tie cord about the body of the
tree so loosely that it will turu freely,
leaving oue free end. With this loose
end, describe a clicle six or eight
feet from the hole or the tree. Length
en the line for each circle, continuing
until the last circle is 0 or 8 feet from
the tree. Make boles about four inches
luep aud a foot apart on eaoh circle.
and put about a gill of bone dust iu
ouch hole. The remedy is sure to re
vive old trees, increasing their bear
ing aud lengthening their lives Ior
many years. Orchard and Farm.
