The hardships of a 300-mile horse back trip made by Mrs. Wultor Quick and baby of Lakevlow, over moun tainous trails, to plead for the release of her husband from the state prison were not without avail, the state pa rolo board today deciding to recom mend to tho governor that Quick be paroled. Quick will be confronted with the problem of reaching his home when Govornor Wlthycombe ordors his re lease. Ho liao a homestead near Lakovlow, 300 miles from Salem, and his only moans of transportation Is the pony on which his wife and baby made the long trip hero. He has no monoy.

Particular attention is called to the Dollar offer made by the St. Helens Mist, which can be found in this Is sue. This is an unusual offer and will not be made again, as a news paper that carries so much reading matter and home news cannot be profitably published for that sum, but makes this reduction to place the Mist in every household in the coun try. We also wish our regular subscrib ers to take advantage of this offer. Pay ahead a couple of years anyhow. No extra charge for postage will be made for subscriptions sent outside tho county. Be on hand Dollar Day, Friday, Novembor 12th, or mail your remit tance that day. rotor Alveras has opened a cigar and shine shop In the Hewitt build ing next door to tho garnge entrance, stocked with a new line of tobacco , and smokers' supplies. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES. Tho Hallowe'en party given by the 8. H. H. S. was a great success. Every one seemed to enjoy themselves, the elder barrel being the main feature of tho evening. Clarence Coin, one of the senior boys, had a very deadly encounter with a skunk Monday morning and was unable to attend school. Tho laboratory apparatus for the chemistry class has at last trrived and the class will begin laboratory work next Thursday. Tho basket ball squad will soon don suits and report for duty, as the terms of the 8unset Athletic club have been accepted and practice will begin about Nov. 16. The first game is with Clatskanie, Jan. 8, and from the looks of things now, the boys will suro bring home the bacon. The members of the eighth grade class assisted their teacher, Miss Leith, In celebrating Hallowe'en on Saturday evening in their class room of the school building. The room was prettily decorated with autumn leaves and appropriate draw ings done by the pupils, which dis played latent talent in the line of art. The lights cast a rosy glow over the scene and the witchiest witch ever seen presided in a corner of her own, where she disclosed the fate of all those seeking to know past, present and future. A short program was en Joyed, games indulged in, and then the event of the evening, lunch, was served, consisting of pumpkin pies, sandwiches, four kinds of cake, or anges, popcorn and nuts. Several of the mothers were pres ent and all reluctantly took leave at the appointed hour. The pupils are Indebted to Miss Leith for the pleas ant evening and one not to be forgotten. SHIPPING. The steamer Wapama, Capt. John Foldat, left Monday with one million foet of lumber and 46 passengers for San Francisco and other California portn. Tho Multnomah left Tuesday with a cargo of 950,000 feet of lumber nnd a good list of passengers. Tha Yosemite will leave Saturday for San Francisco with passengers nnd 800,000 feet of lumber. The Klamath is due on the 11th. Sho will take on a full cargo of ties and timber for Guaymas, Mexico. War conditions are better on that const, more especially since Carranza bar, been recognized. Tho Forest Home, which has been undergoing repairs at the St. Helens Shipyard, will berth Wednesday and will tako on a full cargo for Callao, Peru. She expects to sail about the 20th. Tho Shipyard now has 70 skilled mechanics nnd work is progressing rapidly and the big ship will be launched on time. l no steamer Gcorgiana made her uiEt run Sunday nnd will be laid up for the winter. She will be replaced by the Undine. EASTERN ELECTIONS Returns from the eastern states, where elections were held yesterday, indicato sweeping Republican gains in every Instance and with very few exceptions Republicans were elected to office. That Massachusetts elect ed Samuel W. McCall, Republican, governor, defeating the present gov ernor, David I. Walsh, seems cer tain. In New York twelve Republi can mayors were elected while only five Democrats and one Socialist were returned. Philadelphia elected a Republican mayor by a notable victory, and In Now Jersey great gains were made, the Republican control of the Legislature being in creased. Even in Maryland and Kentucky, usually sate Democratic states, the Republican candidates were running close : ' The Woman Suffrage issue was dofeated by big majorities in New York, Pennsylvania and Massachu setts. Returns from Ohio also evi dences the defeat of the prohibition measure, although the drys showed gains over the previous elections. Astoria has a lady dentist, Dr. Asta Huugo. She is a graduate of the Pa cific Dental college and has fitted up a fine office. THE STANDARD HIGH SCHOOLS J. A. Churchill, state superintend ent of public instruction, has made public the number of standard High Schools In the state. Work of stand ardization has been in progress by the state department of education for the past year and but 60 four-year High Schools now remain which have not met the standardization require ments. Under the now High School law, districts maintaining standard High Schools are entitled to receive tui tion for pupils attending school there, but residing in districts not having High Schools. This law excepts counties maintaining the county High School fund, but for such counties the State Board of Education is re quired to establish the standard for High Schools entitled to a share of the county High School fund, there fore the list given includes all the standard schools in the state. . In order to be standard a High School must offer four years of work; have not less than 250 reference books for the library, chosen from the state library list for High Schools; one standard encyclopedia, and suf ficient number of dictionaries and the proper laboratory for each science offered. The teachers must hold cer tificates entitling them to teach in High Schools and all High Schools must follow the state course of study or a course approved by the State Board of Education. The following schools in Columbia county have met all the requirements and are standard High Schools: St. Helens, Rainier, Clatskanie and Scap-pooso. HOME WEATHER GUIDE. A reader of the Mist, without claiming to be a weather prophet, gives us tho following western Ore gon weather observations: The nearer to 3 o'clock in the after noon a change in weather takes place, the more permanent the chango; the nearer to 3 a. m., the more transient. Probably this justifies the adage: "Rain before seven, clear before eleven." A red sunset In Oregon is so often followed by foul weather as to ren der the old Bible sign very unreli able. Rain while the sun is shining shows a state of atmosphere that renders showers for the succeeding twenty-four hours very probable. In winter the prevailing winds are from tho south; in summer from the north. In winter, if storm Is reported ap proaching British Columbia coast, ex pect rain; if approaching California coast, look for snow. Winds blow to storm center; if south of us we are in north wind, and cold. Heavy rains In California mean cold weather In Oregon. When one hears people say it Is too cold to snow, they are probably right. It will be rain. At, precipitation re quires the meeting of strata of dif ferent temperatures. If the lower stratum is cold, the upper one will be the warm one; and such a condition can result in a sleet, at most. But the upper stratum is the prevailing one, and a sleet, even, is nearly In variably followed by warmer weather. It is known In Oregon as "Silver thaw." HOUSE WARMING. Mrs. F. A. George gave a house warming Tuesday afternoon in her beautifel new home to the Pythian sisters. The rooms were beautifully decorated with Oregon grape and dahlias.
