BROOKS, SUPT, The new semester opened under fa vorable circumstances, and with in creased determination on the part of teachers and pupils to make the work of this semester even better than that of the last. The Superintendent in opening the High school, congratu Jated the pupils upon their record for last semester and predicted for them .still greater achievement in conduct and scholarship during the remainder of the school year. He emphasized Godliness, as manifested in love for our fellowmen and reverence for God and his laws as the chief end of edu cation. He said, in part: Intellectual at tainment, culture, wealth and social and political influence and power, are worthy objects of power on the part of both nations and individuals, but none of these, or all of them, is alone sufficient for the foundation of last ing national life, or the inspiration of a great and good individual life Babjion, with her untold wealth: uyre ana siaon, as masters 01 com merce: oreece, m the sunremacv of intellect and culture: Rome, in world wide dominion, all failed to find in these achievements the basis of a per tnanent civilization. Hut "Godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." To such as you this morning is the promise. Through the tasks set before you this semester, and the splendid 'en lronment thrown about you, 3ou jfnay come to God-likeness in "know ledge and holiness." The teachers report the results of the examinations, on the whole, as satisfactory. Some pupils did not write good papers. This was to be expected.

Come now, The Senior class held a long busi ness session, the early part of the week and outlined plans for a splen did commencement. The meeting was pleasant and harmonious through out and many details were happily -disposed of. The . spirit of fairness the same place is harct,to find in the west. No better land or farm in the west and unselfishness shown by all mem bers of the .class is indeed gratifying. We trust this goodwill shall continue to the end. Quarrelling and growling are never becoming practices, but es pecially are they undignified on the part of Seniors. They have attained the highest honors a loving commun ity can bestow upon them: they are soon to sever the dearest tie the school tie that binds human hearts How childish and ungrateful, then, Is wrangling over the detals of what should be the happiest event in the school career. The importance of home study by pupils above the fourth grade should L Jiot be overlooked by parents and pu ils. The average pupil should de vote an hour to two hours each eve ning to the preparation of the lessons for the next day, unless health or the condition of the eyes makes this im practicable. une quiet anu mannenv way m which our pupils have been moving about the building of late is highly commenoauie. fcome people never learn to step lightly, to go quietly up and down stairs, to close doors softly, to speak gently, and otherwise to conduct themselves with sympathy and courtesy toward those about them, li the naoit or gentle con duct is not formed early in life, if the lessons of politeness are not learned in youth, they are not likely to be ac- quired when we are grown. Noisy ; and boisterous people are not only a oore to their associates, but they wreck nerves and shorten human life. Pupils let each of us control himself and master those little graces which add so much to the sum total of our usefulness and happiness. Parents -and teachers, let us help the children 4to true courtesy that the virtues of This is only a partial list of the many good places offered for sale. C.S.DOBBINS, : : VINCENT, TEXAS. ONLY THE BEST Grades of Stock are good enough to be handled by a home Nursery. Our trees are home-grown and northern-grown; 'and you have the satisfaction of knowing they are the best that money can buy. You can pay more, but you can't get more the extra money paid is for the agent's smooth talk.

I have just received a shipment of Apple, Cherry and Pear roots for this season's grafting, and any part ies having a choice varietv or two of these fruits that they desire propagated, can have same done gratis by sending me a few scions (twigs of last vear's growth from six to twelve inches in length), during Februarv or eaiiv in March: this will cost you nothing and you will be under no obligation to purchase the trees. Apple and Pear scions may be cut at anv time when there is no frost in them and they can be sent bv mail simplv wrapped in paper. Cherries will be budded and should not be sent until next summer. I have a line lot of Colorado Spruce that I will close out at half their value: also about one thousaud beautiful Norwav Maples (one of the hardiest and best shade trees grown, very similar to our na tive "sugar tree,'") ten to twelve feet high just the right size and kind for street planting. These trees are the same as those along Mr. Dungan's street front.and which we grew a few vears ao; I will sell them here at the Nursery at $4.00 per doen, $2500 per hundred about one-fourth the regular price. I will burn up several hun dred better ones than many of those delivered bv foreign Nurseries. Yours for Square Dealing, GEO. It. MURRAY, OREGON, MO. A large number of pupils have sent in four perfect attendance slips and will earn the certificate of award by sending in one more. The number is not as large as it should be, however A few schools have an average atten dance of less than half of the enroll ment. This should not be; parents and pupils and teachers should work hard to have better attendance. Don t lau to keep vour room neat and clean., Don't neglect the ventilation. room may be ventilated by placing a flat board under the window and al lowing the air to pass between the middle sash. Don't fail to keep up a lively in terest by changing work occasionally. Doirt fail to drill on the sounds of letters and the use of the rules in measuring. Don't allow pupils to "go through their readers"' rapidly without know ing well what they have read. Don't fail to attend the meeting at Maitland, tomorrow. Parents should visit the schools and see how teachers and pupils are work ing. Pupils should clean up the room and senu special invitations to par ents to visit them. The new supplies for clerks will be sent out soon and clerks are requested todeMroy all old forms of the esti mate blanks which may be on hand, and use only the new blank. All able bodied children between the-ages ot b and 14 years must at tend school at least three-fourths of the term. Parents should not ne glect this it is the law. The next reglar teachers' examina tion will be held March 25-26. Allap plicants must pass on Agriculture for a third-grade certificate. Persons who expect to take the examinations, should read Bagly's Class Manage ment and some good text on Agri culture. During mv visits, last week, 1 found good attendance, clean rooms, good work at Blair, Franklin, New Point, South Center, Shiloh and Gor don. Mr. Wright sends in a good report of his work at Lonesome. John Marti, Ralph and Ester Zach ary and Paul Wehrli are working hard to finish the course at Ross Grove. Miss Strobel reports she is working overtime and hojpes to graduate the above pupils this year. Miss Goodspeed was sick, last week, and the pupils at Kimsev had vaca tion. Reports from the rural graduates of last year, who are now attending High schools of the county, show that as large a per cent are making good as those who went through the grades. The average age, of course, of the rural pupil is higher than the town pupil of the 9th grade. Reports from over the state indi cate that superintendents are "shak ing up the dry bones," and that su pervision is proving very popular. We expect much advancement and pro gress from the rural schools in the state during the next five years. One of our non-resident pnpils said to us the other day, "We are having a fine school this year. I am telling my parents that this is the best place to CTO to SChOOl."
