A Successful Teacher's Instltnte.
A toachet's institute was held. at
Wooilburn, Saturday, which was
attended by Superintendent Yoder,
many of the teachers from the sur.
rounding country and the residents
of the place. They were amply re
paid for their time by hearing sub
jects discussed which are being
taught to their children. The meet
ing was called to order at 10 a. m.
with Supt. Yoder in the chair. A
chorus was sung by the Woodburn
choir. Miss Lizzie Caples was chos
en secretary; Prof. A. B. Childers
vice-president. The method of
teaching arithmetic was discussed
and many short and practical meth
ods were brought to light by Prof.
Anderson of Silvertoii. During the
afternoon the methods, of teaching
language, spelling and order were
discussed by Messers Leatherman,
Anderson, Childers and Graham,
showing by their clear and concise
remarks that they are not novices
! in the art of teaching.
The next meeting is to be held' at
Gervals De5. 1st, when Prof. (Jhild-
ers will discuss elementary geog
raphy, followed by Prof. Eagon on
reading. Every one is cordially In
vited, to attend. Spare a few hours
to see how the rising generation is
oeing instructed, bet us encourage
all mcectings which have for their
object the advancement of educa
tion. Let us be ever willing to
show, if only by our presence, our
approuanon ot teacners institutes,
Coming in Kaplrtly.
Every day many new comers ar-
rivo in our city and locate either in
town or on farms near the city. Yes
terday a business man of this city,
who knows nearly every resident of
the county, remarked that wc did
not appreciate how rapidly our coun
try was being settled, and illustrated
his remarkby citing tho number of
total strangers who passed by while
talking. At his request we took
notice, the first four persons were
Kansas men. then came a Salem
lady, two eastern men, thrco Salem
men, etc. In tho twenty minutes, of
those who passed, three-fifths were
Two City Elections.
Yesterday was city election at
Dallas, with results as follews: T.
B. Rowell was elected marshal, Nat
Holman recorder, J. W. "Williams,
Thos. Hayter, J. T. Groves council
men. Four couucilnien were to be
elected, but there was a tie between
Hi Plumber aud Percy Fiske for
this honor. Gervals also chose
officers lor the ensuing year. They
arc: Couucilnien, Charles Overby, J.
S. Scott, O. Thibodeau, P. Kelley,
and E. Dupuis; recorder, W. S.
Taylor; treasurer, M. Mitchell; mar
shal, H. Koester.
A Writable 1'aradise.
Certainly it Is refreshing to think
of our Douglas county neighbors
as being now engaged in harvesting
a second crop of apples. BUt our
own favored valley Is not far behind.
To-day many of our own citizens
had for dinner string beans and
green peas of second crop, while
raspberries 'and strawberries havo
not entirely disapeared yet. Farther
east bleak winter is already upon
them with his blinding snows aud
thickening ices, while In Oregon old
Sol is still brightly bctlmlug as is
his wont at this season.
An Ef Ideace or Prosperity.
Salem is to have a system of street
railway, and a Hue Is to bo con
structed in time for tho next session
of the legislature. This is another
gratifying evidence of tho growth of
tho capital. All such - enterprises
will Increase Its vigor aud bring
other enterprises, aud will enhance
the value of real estate. Roseburg
1 Wheat Goes C.
This morning tho Salem quota
tions on wheat moved up one cont
on the busliol, making the price 70
cents per bushel. It Is thought it
will go still higher, as river navi
gation has hardly woll opened yet.

The CfcarapUaH Work.
The Champion has already I wen
to Salem and loaded with wheat for
Portland. Her route this ston
will be between Portland and

Tho article below is just now hav
ing the run of several hundred
eastern papers, being published In
all the co-operative issues of a St.
Paul ready-print house :
"Oregon will yet 'fruit' the entire
Northwest, from Indiana to Idaho,
and those states and territories will
bo greatly benefited thereby. There
Is no part of the state that is better
qualified In every way for this kind
of culture than Marlon and Polk
counties, surrounding Salem, the
state capital. In Salem there is
now a larce fruit evnn.im.inir oa.
tabllshment, aud a cannery Is
spoKeu or as the next improvement.
It is likely such an institution will
bo built next year, It being too late
uus season. Land suitable for
prune or other fruit culture can bo
purchased now near Salem at from
?30to $150 per acre, in cultivation,
and for less if not cleared. It
would pay thousands of your bliz
zard-stricken farmers to leave that
frozen land, where you can crow
nothing but chilblains and frozen
ears, and where tho farmer can
work 365 days out of the year If he
wants, and wo will never see the
labors of his arm go for naught.

farmer has to 'hole up' on account

The rroilQctlveness of Oregon.
The soil here Is wonderfully rich
and productive, and produces wheat,
oats, barley llax, peas, beans, vege
tables of all sorts and staple fruits
in their most perfect form. Salem
Hour has long commanded the high
est price in tho Liverpool market,
and now Salem apples, green and
evaporated, pears aud prunes sell
for more than the product of any
other part of tho United States
in Chicago. St. Paul buys our "big
red apples" and luscious prunes.
The yield of both these fruits long
since accorded tho post of "staples"
In all markets,-- has been enormous
this year, and a sight of an average
Oregon orchard would make tho
eyes of a "Michigan apple grower,"
or Eastern prune producer turn
green with envy. Prunes set out in
good land and well cultivated will
begin bearing in at least live years,
that is, so oue can call the bearing a
crop. To plant them will cost, say
an acre of ground, &50; 155 trees
(the average number set to an acre),
$23.25; plowing the ground and
planting the trees; $7.50; total cost
(original) per acre to plant prunes,
$S0.75, Including cost of tho land.
Cultivation for five years may Iks $50
or 100. One prune orchardlst's
eight acres will pay him from $500
to ?G00 this, their fifth year.
A Great Ulg Day.
Although there is being held to
day a great national election, all is
very peaceable and orderly in tho
capital city. Knots of earnest men
crowd the sidewalks and street cor
ners discussing tho issues of tho day
nnd using ull ondeavors to lnlluence,
by argument, tho voter who has not
yet cast his ballot. Although Salem
is filled to overflowing with people,
there Is neither druukenness nor
disorderly conduct, aud tho day
promises to come to a close without
any extraordinary demonstration.
To-night we may expect to see the
vast throng filling tho sidewalks a
surging mass of humanity eager to
catch the import If tho succeeding
bulletins. Tho news received beforo

There were 70 6"f them In lino aud

The streets were thronged on either
