The annual institute of Thurston county teachers will bo held at the Olympia high school October 26, 2 7 and 28. according to notices being sent out by County Superintendent 1,. A. Kibbe, and the two following days, October 21» and 30, will also count as institute days when the teachers will be expected to attend the meet ing of the Washington Educational association in Tacoma. On Tuesday, October 27, of the in stitute week, the Thurston County Agricultural and Industrial exhibit will be held at the new public library building. For a time it was thought it would be necessary to give up this exhibit this year, because the unusual dry spell literally burned up a large portion of the children's gardens, but investigation showed the pupils were greatly interested in it and had done remarkable well in preparing their agricultural exhibits in spite of the dry weather, and it was found that a creditable exhibit could be made. "I am especially anxious to have every exhibit which has been or can be prepared by any pupil in the coun ty, brought to Olympia for this con test," Mr. Kibbe says in his letter to the teachers explaining the details of the exhibit.

"GRYS" HERE NEXT WEEK [ "Flying Squadron" to Hold .Meetings Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Before the European war was dreamed of, the small groups of men who compose the Flying Squad ron had planned to hold a series of temperance meetings in more than 150 cities of the United States, and had adopted the warlike title and phraseology that suggests strategy and battles. For several months skirmishes have been fought over the United States by former Governor J. Frank Hanley of Indiana, Hon. Oliver W. Stewart of Chicago, Clinton N. How ard of Rochester, N. Y., and others who have been known as scouting parties and have made throughout the whole country the plans for the trip of the squadron this fall and winter. The meetings in this city are to be held on the afternoons and evenings of October 27, 28 and 29, next Tues day, Wednesday and Thursday, in the Olympia theater, and will be address ed by some of the most renowned platform speakers of the land.

That a complete investi gation of Thurston county roads, road building and road supervision should be commenced at as early a date as possible. This question of roads seems to be the center of many and varying opinions. Tt is certainly a question of vital importance to the farmer and therefore to the business men of the city and the sooner we get clear and definite ideas regarding the best methods of road building, the sooner will we be solving a large part of our tax troubles and be doing a real service to every man, woman and child in the county."
