An Interesting and Descriptive Letter
"Well," said a neighbor this morning,
"times are booming at Whatcom, Fair
haven and Anacortes. Ex-Sheriff Thom
as, who.now lives at the latter town, told
me yesterday that there is not an inhab
itable house to rent in that place. The
same is true, I beleave, of the towns on
"Do you think good times at thse places
have come to stay, or is it only prosperity
in the salmon catching and canning busi
ness?" I asked.
"No doubt, the prosperity in the salmon
catching and canning business has had
much to do in making things lively there,
but not everything. The fact that the big
Fairhaven hotel has reopened looks as
though its owners consider that so far as
their town is concerned, prosperity has
returned to stay."
"Yes," I remarked, "it does really look
like we are going to have much better
times in all the Pacific northwest as well
as in the country throughout. This year
the crops are abundant and prices seem
to keep up. Good crops and good prices
will set the farmers on their feet again
and lead on to prosperity in all lines of
"I am glad," said my neighbor, "that
the outlook is bright here on the islands,
as I was beginning to get discouraged.
Now is the time for all of the settlers to
put their shoulders to the wheel and push
onward the chariot of progress in our own
island and neighborhood?'
"I agree with you. What general im
provements do you suggest here at south
"Well, first and foremost, we need a
steamer landing at Edwards buy. We
have a postoffice, but to have our mail
come and go via of Richardson takes away
half the efficiency of the office. By all
means let us have our mail carried by the
steamer Buckeye. Then the Edwards
office would be the nearest one in the
county to the mainland at the railroad,
steamboat and telegraph town of Ana
cortes. Besides being a benefit to all set
tlers in south Lopez, a mailboat landing
at Edwards would be a help to more than
half the population of Lopez. It would
then be possible to go up-Sound direct,
six days in the week; wnereas now, by
steamer Thompson, Tuesdays, Thursdays
and Saturdays are the only days one can
go direct to Seattle. It would also be
possible then to go to Friday Harbor, or
Whatcom any week day. The increased^
advantage of getting off and on the island,
either to the north or south, any day, and
of shipping freight in all kinds of weather
would be no small help to our settlers."
"What other general improvsments
should be made?"
"We should have better roads. True,
our roads have been much improved
within the last few years, but there are
still some portions of the main road
through the island that are almost im
passible in winter and spring and are a
a disgrace to the people, to the road su
pervisors and to our commissioner.
Above all others, let the oldest and main
road be a sample of what all other roads
"Mr. , I see you have some splen
did ideas as to what are invaluable aids
in the development of a new community
» * *
The people of south Lopez, living quite
a distance from the nearest preaching
place, have never been noted for their re
ligious zeal. It now looks as though the
Gospel is to be brought to them. Rev. A.
B. Cort has been in our midst twice to
proclaim the glad tidings of salvation.
The services were held in the Edwards
school house. Once each month he has
promised to preach for us. The two ser
vices held were well attended, the last one
eHpeciallv, when every seat was taken.
Some few are indifferent to preaching and
perhaps one or two opposed, but it is
hoped we will keep up at least the appear
ance of being a religious community.
The Protestant church is a sign of pro
gress wherever it is found.

c In these beautiful islands are found
very many f picturesque "} spots, but t for
charming scenery there is no place in all
San Juan county that excels certain por
tions of the rock-girt coast of south Lopez.
Seen from | the water, the I rugged ! gray
rocks, capped by * scattering bushes, or
larger stunted evergreens, with big trees
well to the rear, make a pleasing picture.
The outlook from shore is grand. At tne
foot of the steep rocky ; bluffs thunders
the billowy deep and the surging, roaring
tide. * Off to the south, 1 across the wide,
blue "expanse; are seen the snow-crowned
Olympics fringed ; shoreward with green
forests. To the east the outlook is across
Rosario Straits to the * high t shoresi*of
Whidby and Fidalgo * islands. Smithes
island stands well up out of the water and
at eventide, slt is a real delight to watch it«
bright flickering light. Usually many
vessels are to be seen, some Alaskabound,
but most going north lor i south, heading
for nearerpo*ts. The SeatUe-Whatoom

of few teachers being present, owing to
the late arrival of the steamers, the
organization was postponed until 1
p. m., when the following organiza
tion was concluded:
Several nominations and a ballot re
sulted in the election of C. N. 8. Turker
Rev. T. L. Dyer being absent, the in
vocation was omitted.
The opeuing address, by County
Superintendent Allen, was interesting
and to the point.
"Beading," by Mrs. Grace L. Albert.
In this discussion many methods of
teaching reading were presented and
discussed, resulting in much valuable
"How to Interest Pupils in Good
Literature," by Miss Isabella Gregg.
As the one who led this discussion
said, this is an all important question.
Since most pupils leave school at the
age of about 15 it is imperative that the
habit of reading good books be formed
early; if so. it w fair to assume that
they will finish their education despite
difficulties, but if the habit of using
questionable books be formed, little
hope is entertained for the future in
tellectuality of such pupils."
The subject of "Fairy Tales" was
proposed and discussed as to their
utility in school. The weight of opin
ion being that the skillful use of fiction
is allowable, but novels should be
At 3 p. m. a short intermission was
had, after which, the first subject be
ing "School Etiquette," by Mrs. A. B.
Cort. Some of the more important
points brought forward in this excellent
number are: The proper time to begin
the education of a child is a hundred
years before its birth. A necessary
means for the required end is a clean
and attractive schoolroom. Teach eti
quette by constant and thoughtful ex
Next came an excellent paper by
Miss Lou Warren, whose subject was
"Plan of School Work," and whose
discussion was most complete and in
structive, covering a field of knowledge
to attain which by experience would
require many years of earnest school
The minutes regularly read and ap
proved, the Institute adjoured to meet
Tuesday at 9 a. m.
Pursuant to adjournment the Insti
tuee met at 9 a. m. and was called to
order by the superintendent.
The teachers were much delighted
with the presence of Prof. White, of
the What com schools, who, in the ab
sence of W. J. Hughes,very acceptably
acted as instructor.
Prof. White was given the first
period and discussed the important
question, "Government and Punish
ments." Of this scholarly address, all
of which was good, we can record but
a few points. Instead ot too much
government by the teacher, let her cul
tivate self government in the pupils.
Corporal punishment, except in ex
treme and peculiar cases, is worse than
useless. Judge a teacher's success
largely by the number of pupils she
"Grammar," by Miss Jessie Spencer,
was well and thoroughly presented.
□Following a brief intermission the
instructor took up the subject, "Rela
tion of the Teacher to His Work."
Prof. White proves himself an ardent
and capable advocate of teachers fol
lowing the vocation of teaching as a
profession. '-. Let us devote our entire
attention to teaching while we are
teachers. Let us have no side issues.
Let us elevate the profession to a more
honored plain by raising tha required
standard of elegibility, thereby exclud
ing from the ranks all who do not
mean to make it a life-long calling.
"Exciting Interest in Study," by
Miss Kate Buckley, proved helpful and
Tuesday afternoon session:
The subject of "Arithmetic" was in
troduced by Mrs. C. W. Hammond,
and a lengthy and profitable discussion
Miss Phebe Strand's subject, "Or

manner. Many fine points were de
veloped, among v hich a new and ap
proved method of spelling "Turner"—

Dr. G. 8. Wright, was productive of
much valuable and practical informa
tion. ' .'-' r '-' ' ' i ■ ..;-■-"■/

minutes the session closed to meet

tute Opened with calling the roll. ;V;;
The first number on the i program
was "School Morals," by Rev. T. L.
Dyer. This was presented in an im
pressive and acceptable manner.
*- "U. 8. History," eby Prof. White.
This usually dry subject was made in
tensely interesting |by a forceful and
original ; method of presentation.
Teachers are ; urged to appeal to the
higher natures of their pupils: to emu

great American patriots. •

was carefully and ably presented.
"The Flag and Patriotism," was .■," re

who spoke earnestly and forcefully,
arousing a warm wave of patriotism
that met a hearty response. '■ "^; - t
The subject, "Teachers' Wages," was
introduced by C. N. S. Tucker and ar
gued vigorously pro i and « con. The
majority conclusion is, we f as ) teachers
hope to educate the public to the full
appreciation §of teachers' efforts so it
will guarantee as high wages as are
consistent with < circumstances, and
also that we disapprove the practice of
letting schools to the lowest bidder.
