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. INDIVIDUAL WORK. 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. Kl'ITLIES.

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 border. " 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. i "Cold Feet." Red Bluff. News: "Mr. and Mrs. Gustav Kraft have returned from their trip through the northern counties. Gus says there was frost in Lakeview, Cedarville and other places nearly every morning! He says, too, that the cattle and mule raising business is in a flour ishing condition there." Everybody went to weddings and the fishing poola last Sunday.
