H these valleys of ours become crowd
H ed with the thousands of foreigners
H who will seek homes here when the
H tide of Immigration Is turned west-

H Panama canal, we do not want our
H boys to become their "hewers of

H an intelligent Insight into the prae-

studying agricuuu... horticulture,
i stock raising and kindred subjects.
They are organized Into agricultural
clubs which have for their purpose
tin stimulation of interest In agri
cultural pursuits and the develop
ments of ideas and Ideals which will
have a tendency to keep the boy on
the farm because of tin- unexcelled
possibilities found there. The fac
tories of the Hear Hirer valley bnve
been very generous in their attitude
toward these clubs, aiding us both
Id the way of cash prizes for beet
and tomato crops, and in giving con
siderable assistance In actual field
work to those of our boys who
have entered the clubs and taken an
active Interest in the cultivation of
The different hit ion In work of the
upper grades has resulted In the
girls of these grades taking sew
ing, and in a few of the schools
cooking has been introduced. The
sewing Is done In school, under the
direction of competent teachers and
In harmony with a carefully outlined
course of work. The theoretical
work it; cooking is taken In school,
meetings are held with the girls and
their mothers, and the practical part
It carried on in the home kitchen.
These rariOUl activities of a prac
tical nature are cementing the in
terests of home 'and school in such
a way as to make for unity of effort
an close sympathetic co-operation in
all of life's activities. Home work
Is finding its Interpretation In school,
and school work is linding Its appli
cation In home and life.
Nor are we neglecting the Ideal
side of life. The power of apprecla
Hon of art and music is coming to be
the common possession of all our
hoys and girls, and the boundless
stores of literary treasures are dally
brought to their attention In the
study of reading, literature, language
and history. Fortunate indeed are
the boys and girls who enjoy the
unexcelled educational facilities found
in the Hear River valley.
Recent Growth and Development.
During the last three years the
Hear River valley has developed
wonderfully in educational facilities.
School houses have been erected at
the following places at costs indl
cated: Cn the East Side of the Valley.

516.00. Some other towns will need addi
tional school buildings In the near
future If their present rate of growth
Is continued. We hope we are not
boastful when we challenge any sim
ilar valley in the west (there are no
valleys just like ours) to show as
rapid progress or more commendable
zeal in the mater of building and pro
viding first-class school facilities than
the above record indicates. In 1912
alone, the per capita cost of school
population for school building only
was $44.50. In the mater of ef
ficiency our schools rank with the
best in the west. So marked has
been our progress in this respect
that we have this year eliminated

The faculty Is unexcelled in any

and the nature and quality of work

attention of numerous visitors to this
district informs us that with ordin
ary care and attention a large variety

MRS. J. W. LEWIS.
When Interviewed on this subject
Mrs. Lewis said: "The flowers that
I find can be best cultivated in this
valley are types such aB the hyac
inth, tulips, daffodils, narcissus,
crocuses, star of Hethlehem and the
caster lily. Late tulips Is what 1
recommend florists to cater to partic
ularly if blooms year after year are
desired. As a rule the early varieties
begin to deteriorate after the first
year unless growing conditions are
Buchj that extraordinary advantages
can be afforded In cultivation. The
late varieties should be taken up
every three or four years just be
fore the flowers go to seed. Bulbs
should he planted ln the late fall
preferably Lillles and tulips should
he separated in the fall and trans
planted immediately. Petunias, ver
benia, stalks, phlox, popples, balsam,
asters of all kinds, candytuft, lark
spur (double) mlgnionette, sweet
peas, pinks, carnntions and a very
large variety of flowers such as
commonly grown can be raised here
in abundance. Sweet peas and roses
thrive here readily. There are some
flowers thnt do not bloom here un
til the second year such as Sweet
William, Canterbury bells, colum
i bine, clove pinks, etc. Climbing
roses for many months In the year
are visible In every part of the val
ley and need but slight attention.
All kinds of shrubs do wel In this
soil. The towns of the valley offer
encouragement and protection to
flower growers In this valley and
penalties are Imposed on persons
who permit chickens or live stock to
do damage to the flower gardens.
Flowers of certain kinds can be
grown here all the year and there Is
nothing that adds such beauty to the
homes in the valley as do the
variegated colors and sweet fragrant
odors rising from the flower beds
surrounding the many residences in
