Orangeville, April 27.—The city jtrhool board will meet next Monday to cake up the matter of employing teach ers for the coming year. The principal Professor Hartzell Cobbs, of Genesee, >ias been engaged, but the grade teach • ers have not yet been engaged. The schools have gone along very success fully the past year and it may be ex pected that the board will look with favor on at least the majority of the present teachers If all put in their applications. While only the present number of teachers will be employed, It Is expected that by fall the number I of school children will have Increased ■so'largely that one new teacher may t be• necessary to teach in the old pri -s mary building, now used as a literary 7 call and library. "Within a few years, as soon as the people hare can get their land into orchards after the railroad comes with good transportation, Idaho county will oe one of the best fruit growing coun tries in the United States," said Cy Overman, of Tolo, one of the best inown orchardists and general farmers •f the county. Mr. Overman secured the grand prize for apples at the street fair a year ago, over the Salmon river exhibits, an honor that speaks high for his ability as a fruit grower. "The •climate here is Just right for profita ble fruit growing. We do not at least here on the prairie, have late frosts that are the terror of the fruit grower. It is so seldom that we have a late frost heavy enough to damage, that it may almost be dismissed from the possibilities. The fruit is as sound as any In the world. There are fewer -Insect pests than anywhere else. The *o41 is all that can be desired for fruit «rowing and the dry falls make a -sound, solid fruit that will keep almost indefinitely. Transportation facilities would allow of shipping fruit without knjury, and care in selecting and car ing for orchards, so as to be able to build up and keep the good name the ■«country deserves, would make this sec lion one vast orchard, for norting else ■would pay so well." The exhibit of public school work, which was shown at Superintendent «■Carpenter's office, Saturday, was a ■credit to this or any other county. Work was shown from Whltebird, ML Idaho, Cottonwood and the Grange ' ville schools. The time has been too short for Professor Carpenter to carry «out ail his ideas on the matter since be was inaugurated into office. It would be necessary to see all the teach ers and go over with them the details *>f what was wanted, explaining the snethod of preparing the exhibit, the : -sise of paper to use so as to have it • uniform, and the arrangement of the «natter to make the right kind of a showing. "However, with the assist ance of a few of the teachers who were wiest easily reached, he succeeded ad wiirably. The exhibit will be sent to Wolse. from where It will go to the Portland fair. ' Tom Johnson went down to Stites "Monday to meet Mr. W. S. Yeardley, of Colfax, bis partner in the big placer proposition lx Little Slate creek, near Florence. Mr. Yeprsley was here but * few hours, finishing his business ih . time to leave Tuesday afternoon. -"SEARCH FOR BAYARD TAYLOR t .Hi* Father, John W., Soon to L*avo for Ca*c*d* Mountain.

It is not often In this grand old world of ours that a man Is so unfortunate as to have hts front yard torn up be cause a ledge of gold, carrying quartz, happens to run through hts property.

On examination he found that It carr'ed gold, but the cold weather prevented him from making a thorough test of the rock until recently. Last week he put down a hole about three feet deep and finds that he has a vein 30 inches wide that runs from $500 to $1.200 In gold. Mine Inspector Bell says that It will go up in the hundreds and beats anything he ever saw. J. C.
