and eighth grades, Mil's Gertrude Ver
non, fifth and sixth grades, Miss Pearl
Hall ; third and iourth grades, Mi9s Etta
Johnson; first and second grades, Miss
Pose P. Coleman.
WHEN TO ENTER.
Students of the upper grades may en
ter at any time, but it is much better to
enter on the first day of the term. The
very best time to enter ia on the first
day of the first term. Those who are a
week or t wo behind in entering have lost
greatly. One whole year faithfully de
voted to study is worth twice as much
as time spent in fragments. Try to be
prompt in entering.
The effort is made to render the work
in the upper grades, as far as possible,
individual. The work of each grade is
divided into sections, through which the
child can progress, by means of home
work, as rapidly as he is able, at tha
same time all reciting together on daily
set work. As each section of work is
completed, it is reviewed, so that thor
oughness and accuracy are assured. The
opxrtunity offered the children to wi;.
promotion to another grade before the
close of the term serve as a stimulus to
the most earnest effort. The evils of
the rigidity of the graded system are
largely overcome by this plan, and the
quicker children are not necessarily re
tarded by the slower ones. All are
stimulated to do their bt. No con
fusion nor serious inconvenience results
in the management of t lie grades.

J. H. McCormack, Principal.
WILL RECLAIM 125,000 ACRES.
Expects to See a Big Addition to the Popula
tion of Crook, Klamath and Lake.
C. X. Scott, of Portland, tells theOre
gonian that the work of constructing
the two main canals of the Deschutes
Consolidated Irrigating Company will
begin at once. Under this system 125,
OOU acres of land known as "desert"
will be reclaimed. The company putting
in this irrigation system does not desire
to obtain control of the land benefited,
and, as the land is mostly in the hands
of the government yet, there is ample
room for both rich and poor to acquire
title to it under homestead or desert
land acts. Mr. Scott says the construc
tion of the Oregon Midland to Klamath
Falls will give this section an outlet to
the south, while the Dalles Southern,
soon to be built up the Deschutes toward
Lakeview, will skirt along its eastern
" I look for a heavy addition to the
population ot Crcok, Klamath and Lake
counties as a result of the successful
termination of this irrigation scheme,"
says Mr. Scott.
