State Superintendent Al
derman Says Theory
Works in Other Counties
The Lake County Examiner.
To the Editor: Noticing thHt the
County Hig .Schal Kunii Lnw is on the
ballot for Luke Cnunty, it has occurred
to me that you might lik an arti le on
how thin i orking in other counties.
This law was pa ted by the legisla
ture of 1909, and ia now operating in
seven eountie. The idea of the law is
to give high reboot advantage to every
girl and boy in the county, irrespective
of where he live.
The fund created by this high Bchhol
law is ued to pay the tuition of high
school students where ever located in
the county to any high school in the
county or to any high school that may
have been organized. If under twenty
students atti nd '.i:e high school the
diatri't receive forty dollars per
ptudent an annual tuition : for the te
cond twenty they receive thirty dollar
each : and alter forty twelve and one
half Hnllar each.
With the eure and steady growth of
this county, more town will grow up
and this law will make it uoihle for
tnet-e t-.wns to have high t-ehools.
i alo make pocsible high schools tor
rural 'tiflrictn The law has had a
wholeome effect wherever tried, and
ia mHkiig Oregon take the lead in high
ehooi at tendance. With an up-to-date
high pchonl enurr-e of etudv, there is no
rea n wny Lake county cannot draw
a' d hoi I hitler from an educational
standpoint a well a its natural re
source. Assistant U. S Commissioner
of tnucation, Upd'graf, says that this
high school luw is one of the best in
the United States.

Lay fette Lane Acquires
300 Feet of Ground at
Windy Hollow
Layfettt Lane, brother of F. P
and J S. Lane of this city, has taken
an eighteen months' lease on 300 feet I
of ground of the Jumbo Mining Com
pany's prupeity at Windy Hollow.
The lent-e was signed up this week and
Mr. Lane will begin development work
at once. One of the stipulations of the
lease is that 52 shifts a month will be
worked. This with W Z. Moss' lease
will put in operation two active forces
on the Jumbo property and work will
be prosecuted vigorously. It is report
ed that Mr. Moss is negotiating tor
the pur ihase of a stamp mill, and
it is expected that the future of
Windy Hollow will soon be established.
The company is fortunate in enlisting
the interest of a man like Mr. Lane,
as he has a thorough knowledge of the
mining buslines, and his manifesta
tion of confidence speaks well tor the
district. He was one of the party that
went from Lakeview several years ago
to the Alaska gold excitement and
spent several years in the Klondyke

are Apt to Overlook .
Good Accomplished
The Vale Enterprise has good idea
of what a Commercial CIud ia and has
I tre following to aay : "A great many
of our citizens are inclined to overlook
the good that is accomplished by the
Commercial Club." The people of Vale
are not alone in this, as it i the same
practically mil ever the country.
A Commercial Club usually should
ers the expense and responsibility of
advertising a community and trusts the
people to repay them. The work and
troubles of a liv Commercial Club are
not small and the advantages are
many. A small and growing town
needs a booster organization more than
the larger places but it is a noticeable
fact that in every city may be found
Commercial C1u..f, and the growth
from town to city Is greatly brought
about by such organization. It is a
neceaaary adjunct and one that should
receive hearty support from the people.
Railroad Earnings
The latest bulletin of the Interstate
Commerce Commission brines out the
j( j fact that although the gross earning of
the railroads of the United States have
increased materially during the passed
year, their operating expenses have in
creased way out of proportion, from
heee figures, it is evident that t e
laws are requiring the raltr iada to en
large their operating expenses. Taxa
tion i.-" becoming heavier also. Econo
mists contend that the pre ent policy
toward the railroads is one of starva
tion. Since they represent the largest
single business enterprise in the coun
try, much is dependent on them. When
the railroads are prosperous," the rett
cf tho couo.itrv is. For this reason it
is contended that there ought to be
fewer restricting Uws passed, for a
while, at least.
Prizes For Essays
The Oregon Society of Sons of
American Kevoult'on is offering prizes
totaling S100 to the pup 'is of the pu lie
Bc'uools of Oregon fur essays on sub
jects connected with our War of Inde
pendence. The awarding of prizes will
be governed by consideration of origin

of treatment, orthodoxy,' syntax, and
neat nets and legibility.
Prizes are offered
to cupils of High
Schools for essavs on either, "The
Confederation and the Constitution,"
"Women of the American Revolution,"
or "Benedict Arnold." This is a good
advancement for education and school

Card of Thanks
We desire to express uur 6ense of
gratitude and thankfulness to our
friends and neighbors for kindly assist
ance rendered us in our time of trouhle
and need, and to assure them that their
every effoit in our behalf will ever be
