THE BRAKE GAVE WAY.
A serious accident, which it seems
almost miraculous did not prove fatal
to several, occurred on the Almota
grade Friday last.
Miss Hoepner's geology class from
the Colfax high school had started for
Snake river to spend the day in prac
tical work, with Prof. Beam and Miss
Fogle as assistants to Miss Hoeppner.
It took two four-horse rigs to carry
the crowd, and when part way down
the Almota grade, I!u> brake broke on
the first wagon, which was driven by
J. H. Buck, and the am being un
able to hold the load, irted to run.
Mr. Buck, who i.s a Vi teran driver,
tried to keep the team in the road an
succeeded in this for some distance,
but in making a turn onto a small
bridge, he pulled one of the wheeler's
lines in two and the team and rig shot
over the bank. In the interval be
tween the brake giving way and the
final pile-up most of the young people
had jumped from the rig and escaped
with a few bruises, but the driver
was quite seriously hurt and Miss
Lake suffered one broken rib. Mr.
Buck received a severe cut on the
head, an sprained wrist and the mus
cles of his back andj[neck were quite
badly strained. Dr. Stuht, who was
called to the scene of the accident,
considered it inadvisable to move Mr.
Buck and he was cared r for at Almota
until the next day, when he was
brought home. He is doing nicely
at present and it is expected that he
will be out in a couple of weeks, and
Miss Lake is so far recovered as to
be able to resume her school work.
Miss Claire Chadwick, a daughter
of Judge S. J. Chadwick, who was
riding on the seat with the driver,
was thrown clear over the wheel team,
landing on one of the leaders and slid
ing off to the ground, escaping with
only a few slight bruises. Taking it
all in all, Colfax has much to be
thankful for that no fatalities occur-

200,000 SCHOOL CHILDREN.
Washington has more than 200,000
school children, according to F. M.
McCully, as istant superintendent of
public instruction. "This will be
shown by the census to be taken in all
of the school districts next month," he
It is th« theory of Washington's
state school law, the 'Barefoot Boy'
bill, that there should be provided $10.
each year for the education of each
child on the census rolls. Actually
the amount falls short. There are
several reasons for this,one being that
another provision of law limits the
tax in any district to five mills, which
is not enough in a number of instances.
"This state does not stint itself in
ita expenditures for education. Aside
from the large appropriations for the

in these schools, and the average at
