From the state of Nebraska comes the latest, which is a combination of the old populist party, forty-eighters, farm er labor, non-partisan, independent progressive, socialists and the sore heads of the two major parties. The name of the new party will be deter mined at a convention to be held December 3. Judging from the wide variety of political "faith" combined in the new party it ought to be able to draw up a platform that will please everybody, cure all the ills of the world and make other political par ties unnecessary. Members of the new party assail "big business" interests, Wall street and many private organiza tions "as menaces which the old parties will never correct and which new party must do. What a blessing it is that Wall street and the "big interests" still exists, they fjurnish never-failing point of attack for any political party seeking members.

Our grandfathers grained but little of their knowledge thru the printed page. They were educated in the school of "Hard Knocks." For the mo st part, what they did not learn tiy experience they were told by those who had. They did not read much, because they had little to re ad, each family had a few books, I man ed was ! tor for his newspapers were scarce and our modern magazines were completely unknown to the vast majority. Now however, when practically every home is provided with several good books, and a local library contain ing several hundred volumes of the world's best literature is easily available; wnen every home takes one or more daily papers and sever al weekly and monthly journals; when it is almost impossible tor one to keep posted on the reading matter in any one field, to say noth ing of the bigger and more general phases of a vast number of other lm the ! porlant helds : at ,. th ' S t,me ' 1 Say ' one begins to realize the advantage ! of being able to read rapidly with of comprehension. Leading educators throughout the G. Leading educators throughout the United States have for some time realized the importanc of rapid reading and very brief studies have demonstrated that reading is most rapid when done silently. Silent reading too, it has been found, can be improved to a much greater ex tent than oral reading. Since oral reading is practically never .used by the averag£ , individua|> and s jlent reading is necessary of times each day, we are beginning | Jn our g^ool curriculum to put since dozens " Tr""'. i determind bv certain Educational ... of these tests are Monroe's Standard Silent Reading Test (given in the ! local school during the month) and Curtis's Silent Reading Test. These ; tests consist of a number of short j reading exercises printed on a sheet. of paper. These sheets are distriut. ! more emphasis on silent reading. Ability in silent reading is easily ! Tests which have been devised for that purpose. The most important ] ed to the children in a room, each student having one sheet, the in structions are read, and the cmldren are given exactly 5 minutes in which to complete the exercises. Their rate is thus measured by the number of words read in the 5 min utes and their comprehension by the wav in which they have answered the questions in the exercises read. 1 he results of the Silent Reading test recently given show that our school is not lar below the standard set by the author of the test, how ever, we should be above, and an effort is being made to put every student above the standard. The co-1 operation cf the parents is asked for in tins and we especially urge the parents to visit the senool and see wnat their children are doing. Sev eial parents have already been in Crested in seeing the resultsof the tests an i we hope more will come and help us help their children. — The Superintendent, Another Doctor For Kendrick As a result of meeting with a number of business men last Satur day night, Dr. Otteraaen, recently of Spokane, who has been practicing medicine for the past few months at Troy, has decided to locate perman ently in Kendrick. He stated over the phone to Mr. Newton Wednes day evening that he had definitely made up his mind to come. This is good news to the people of this com munity as it has been impossible for one doctur to handle this territory this fall. A few years ago there were five doctors in the territory which is considered tributary to I Kendrick. The community is particularly fortunate in getting a man of Dr. Otteraaen's ability. He is a young man but has had considerable ex perience in the practice of med icine. He is a graduate of a Chicago medical school, has practic ed medicine at Faigo, N. 1)., and was with Mayo Bros,, at Rochester ! tor a year, besides two years hos pital experience in Spokane. As soon as Dr. Otteraaen can make the necessary arrangements for office quaters and a home, he and his wife will move here, probably within a week or ten days. Troy News Changes Hands \ - By a deal closed last week, G. H. Rice, editor and owner of the Troy News, transferred his interest in the plant to Benjamin V. Haas, who is now in charge of the busi ness. ' Mr. Haas is an experienced news paper man, having last conducted a paper in Reeder, North Dakota. He came west with his family by auto last summer and spent some time workng on a paper in Independence, Oregon, from there he came to Troy. Mrs. Haas is a niece of L'has. Kelham of the Dry creek district, and of Miss Hester Snead of Mos cow. Mrs. Haas' mother, Mrs. A. G. Davisson, will make her home with her daughter at Troy. In giving up the News, Mr. Rice, expects also to retire from the printing business and return to his former work in the ministry of the Congregational church, locating somewhere in the inland empire, where he has a standing of fifteen years of service. The family will leave Troy late this week. Density of Our Population mj)e than twenty years Those who think it desirable that the American people should be more and more crowded may be pleased to learn from the census figures that we new have 10 more persons ,_____ ______ ____________ _______ island, Massachusetts and New Jer sey are approaching the crowded condition of England, Belguim and Holland. Those who deplore this increase will find their comfort in the fact that we still have one state, Nevada, ago. In 1900 we had 25.6 persons per square mile; in 1920, 35.5. An 0 ther way of putting it is that in 1900 we had 25 acres per inhabitant, now w'e have 18 acres per iniiatit an t. Three of our states. Rhode j w ith less than one person per square i mile, a density less than any repurt e( j country in the world. Thus the jcensus meets all tastes.—Ex. _ | Archie Bolon Injured Last Sunday while Archie Bolon ; was hunting near Kendrick, the shotgun which he was carrying was accidentally discharged, inflicting a very bad wound in his wrist. The shot tore through the flesn of his wrist does to his hand, severing the ligaments in such a manner that he had no control of Ins hand. He was given first aid by Dr. Kelley and 1 then taken to Lewiston on the night tr9in for hospital care.
