It Is pleasant to Ing of the Interurlwn line to Forest RIIS AND THE KING. It was when I went home to moth er that I met King; Christian last. They had told mo the right way to ap proach a king, the proper number of bows and all that, und I meant to faithfully observe it all.

He asked about the Panes In America, and I told him they were good citizens, bet ter for not forgetting their mother land and him in his age and loss. He patted my hand with a glad Ut ile laugh and bade me tell them how much he appreciated It, and how kindly his thoughts were of them all. As I rose to go after a long talk, he stopped me and touching the little sil ver cross on my coat lapel, asked what It was. I told him; told him of the motto "In His Xame" and of the labor of de voted women In our great country to make It mean what It said.

I wear it gladly, for the If advance reports are to be re lied upon the country life commls sion will report to the president that the two most Important things need ed by the agricultural communities of the nation are 'better schools and better roads. Next In Importance to these the commission will place the parcels post and postal savings tank That 'better rural schools are need ed cannot be denied. They are need ed In this county as "well as else where. The country schools should be more closely superintended and In a general way their administration should be more systematic and busi ness like. Xor can H be denied that good roads are needed. Public highways are the arteries of travel and no agri cultural section can be properly de veloped without good roads. But toth schools and roads depend upon the settlement and the econo mic prosperity of a rural community. Where there la a thick rural settle ment and the farmers are making money you- will find good schools and good highways. On the contrary, a section that Is sparsely settled and where primitive farming methods prevail cannot have good schools nor good roads. This "being the case should not the first step In the Uplift movement be to work for the material develop ment of agricultural sections? Would It not have been tetter If the coun try life commission had devoted some time to the consideration of the farming methods tha prevail tnroughout the country as well as to the schools and roads? The East Oregonlan would like to see the schools of, Umatilla county bettered and It would like to see macadamized roads all over the county. But It believes that before either can be secured the country must be more closely settled and de veloped. Intenfled farming methods fur nish the key to the situation. If an nual crops can toe raised Instead of biennial crops; Jf farmers can be In duced to raise some alfalfa, more vegetables und to keep hogs and ctickens Instead of devoting all their attention to -wheat raising, this coun ty will go forward.
