The baibecue on the hill was all and
more than could be expected, if it had

possible, judging by 'he way in which

Whereas, with a feeling of profound

The Annual Teacher's institute be
gan its work at the High School build
ing last Wednesday.
The morning session began with
muBic, after which assistant State
School Supt. Carleton presented the
aubiect of history. He conducted a
recitation with the teachers present as
pupils. His work was appreciated and
many valuable ideas were advanced.
Prof. Gardner gave his methods of
teachine arithtne'jj. He tipbasized
the necessity of teaching that which
is practieal in life and impressed upon
the teachers the need of thorough work
in all subjects. After a short recess a
discussioi. of the need of better work in
spelling waa led oy Supt. Willits,
Carleton, Dunton, Oliver and Gardner.
Each gave methods A county contest
among the schools was approved.
After noon Mr. Carleton continued
his work in history in a manner which
benefitted the teachers.
Prof. Gardenr took up the work of
arithmetic in the higher grades, show-
ng how to apply the instruction to
needs of the home and business.
Mr. unver spent thirty minutes on
the teaching of geography, showing
that if teachers will cause tne pupils
to want and like the study, advance
ment is easy. Hft gave a synopsiB of
his method of using newspapers, rail
road and other literature to make the
work effective. His supplementary
work to the cause of study was ap
plauded and recommended to the teach
ers by Supt. Carleton.
The evening session waa held in the
M. E. Church and consisted of some
excellent music, a talk by Prof. Gard
ner on the needs of harmony between
t'e home and the school and in train
ing children to become good citizens.
Mr. Caritun'a talk was on "Our
Schools" and was replete with good to
parems, teachers and the public.
These talks will bear much truit in
creating and muintaimng a proper
school spirit in our town.
After the speaking the teachers and
instructors met with the ladies of the
Civic Improvement Club for the pur
pose of becoming acquainted. A very
social hour whs spent, refreshments
served and all made acnuainted, after
which Mr. Seaver, of Seattle, enter
tained the gathering with some dialect
reading. Hia impersonation of the
Norwegian and Swede was remarkable. !
Dr. Winship gave a short talk which !
was aa all would expect, good. A vote
of thanks v as given to the ladies of
the C. I. C.
Ot vast importance to the early de
velopment of the upper part of Lake
county is the settlement of a Hebrew
colony near Kama Kock as waa an
nounced fn last week's Examiner. The
land filed upon in the Lakeview office
ia located in 27-22 and is about 75
miles almost due north of this place.
This is at the junction of the Southern
Pacific Railroad survey that waa made
through this territory, connecting with
the Oregon Eastern UDon which con
struction work ia now progressing. It
is said that some of the best farmirg
land in the countv is in that region.
Those who made filings here last
week were: Jacub Meyers, William
Roodvas, Frank Schitter. Victor.
Bcrcovitz, David freal and Rabbi J.
M. Goldberg. E. K Post.'of the Ore
gon Land & Immigration Co., made the

Lakeview by automobile. The entire
settlement will he made up of Port
Mr. Schsttr who was acting as
spokesman for the party informed the
Examiner tnst twenty-tlv families
would follow this Fall and make filings '
on other lands, and it was likely that
numerous other Portland parties would
settle in tbac vicinity. All the land
was taken under the three year home
stead act and thia year they expect to
let contract for clearing land and
getting it under cultivation. They also
want one half million feet of lumber
for which they will let contracts as
soon as they can get figures on the
At the present time the settlement
will be somewhat remote from trans
portation, but with the building of the
Oregon Eastern will soon have connec
tion with outside points. The fact
that people f'rn. 0mn rcPtropolis
have selpcfpd Lab eonnty for the lo
cation of the first colonization move
ment in the ntate, speaks well for the
productiveness of the soil, which is
bound to oome under cultivation in due
course of time.

President Bailey, of the Northwest

Bailey in speaking to an Examiner
man. "We are in the land business,

we are under a contract with the state

they will be ready to receive subscrip
