THE WONDER OF THE WORLD.
The Oregouian says:"Baron Komnra,
foreign minister of Japan is being
whirled across the American contin
ent in the private car of the greatest
railway magnate of modern times.
The great men oi the gieatest nation
on earth are waiting to do him hom
age, and all his movements are cabled
to the uttermost ends of the earth.
And yet but a half century has pnss Q d
since the people represented by Koia
ma were as ignorant and uncivilized
as are many of tl c triheß of darkest
Africa today. For rapid and sensa
tional climbing up the ladder of civil
ization, Japan is the wonder of the
world." The trip which began at
Seattle was certainly noteworthy, but
the Oregouian depreciates Jnpnese civ
xiliation rather too much. Long be
fore Perry's visit the Japanese were
well advanced in art and litearture.
They were far in advance of tne
'tribes of darkest Africa today," as
may be seen by the readiness with
which they "adapted themselves to
European and American methods in
net, warfare and statesmanship.
SCHOOL CENSUS COMPLETED
Wenatchee School District Makes Big Gain--
Has Total Population
'County School Superintendent John
23. Porter reports that the school cen
sus just completed .shows that there
are now in the county 2,<i77 persons
between the ages of 5 and 21, being an
increase over last year's census of 300.
The Wenatchee district is credited
with the 1 rgest increase, having gain
The report shows tltat the balance
of the gain is scattered very evenly
over the country districts of the en
tire courty. A comparison of the fig
ures of the school census and the
tegular county census of the year
1902 with the tigures of the present
school census, shows that the present
population of the ?onnty is about 11,
•JOO. Figured on the same basis, the
Wenatchee school district has about
4,000 people, an increase of 100 per
cent since 1902. These figures are ap
proximately correct and if the present
xate of increase of population contin
ues, the Wenatchee school district
will have within irs bounds not less
than 10,000 people by 1908. With a
corresponding growth throughout the
balance of the county and the rapid
development of the county's countless
and inexhaustible resomoes, this ci'y
should he In a most prosperous condi
tion at that time.

by his adversary with a long Bi.i'e.

Schools have closed, and the teachers
•re out for a long vacation, so called.
To many a weary teacher the vacation
spell will be simply a long hunt for the
vitality that has been paid out In the
class room. Some of those released
from the grind of lessons will pass the
weeks in the kitchen to relieve moth
ers who have toiled all through the
term to release the school crowd, both
old and young, from household cares.
Still others will take up the needle and
make and mend against the needs of
the coming year. All who find the va
cation a real play spell, with no tasks
and no new lessons to master, should
have the congratulations and not the
envy of any whose vacations are lim
J With all its advantages of respecta
bility, indoor employment and regular
pay, the profession of teaching is a
ceaseless and an exacting grind. It
wears out the hearings. From month
to month and from year to year the
same subjects are discussed, the same
routine covered. Faces change la the
class, but the class itself is only a lit
tle duller and therefore harder to
arouse than Its predecessor or a little
brighter and therefore harder to guide
A teacher whose heart is In the work
of making better men and women out
of the material placed in her charge
may not he distressed by the monotony
of such labor. But enthusiasm is
sometimes only a mask for overwork
ing faculties. The willing teacher needs
a vacation to gain new strength with
which to accomplish the work of the
season that is to come. The best teach
ing Is that which goes beyond the
routine and seeks to work an Influence
upon the individual character of the
pupils, and the teacher who has re
gard for her work in the highest sense
will utilize holidays and all other spare
time in finding out new ways to reach
the intelligence and arrest the sym
pathy of the young. Good Vlsb.es of
parents more than of scholars even
should go with the schoolma'ams on
their well earned vacations.
The exports of Norway are swal
lowed up in those of other countries,
and the volume is of such relative un
importance as to attract but little at
tention. About four-fifths of the area
of Norway consists of timber land, ami
the country exports annually about
500,000 tons of wood pulp and paper
made from wood. Timber in the rough
and finished is shipped from Norway
for building purposes and for wooden
ware manufacture, the exports averag
Ing about $10,000,000 annually. For a
time Norway had a monopoly of the
manufacture of matches and now
ships abroad 3,000 tons annually. Iron
and copper are found in abundance,
and the manufacture of horseshoes,
nails and machinery is becoming an Im
portant business. The mineral output
Is $2,250,000 a year. Fishing brings
Norway a large revenue, and the ship
ments of herring, cod, mackerel,
salmon, roe, whalebone and fish oils
average in value $7,500,000 annually.
The Norwegians are a primitive peo
ple, yet agriculture is not pursued to a
great extent. About 11,000 tons of
condensed milk are exported anually.
and Norwegian butter is found in the
markets of Europe. The government

Peary's plans for his fourth arctic
voyage call for a continuous journey
northward until he locates the north
pole. He has chosen the American
route, and his friends are confident
that he will return with news of a rec

Peary's former trips enriched the
world's knowledge of the arctic, but he
has never until the present trip counted
upon arriving at the pole.
