The people of that section will vote on the proposition, on Thursday, of next week, and we have been permitted to make a few note from hi address which we believe will be appreciated not only by those of lllelow, but friends of consolidation throughout the county: The new pillar of tire by which (tod leads his people l the school room. The Mater of Men Mid, suf fer little children to come, and yuti house them in rain-shackled, Illy-ventilated, one-room schuolhotiM's. No child Is responsible for being born Into this world, and lie has a right to demand an eual educational oppor tunity with every other chllil. "We folks at Oregon ami the people at Mound City are glad to gel your boys and girls for our high schools; we are glad to have the trade coming our way, hut my Interest Is luthelioy and the girl. They are the most pre cious crop your tine Unit county soil will grow. We talk about keeping them on the farm, and yet send them away from the farm for their educa tion. This district is not for lllgelow alone. It Is a community Idea, for the entire community. Whatever helps lllgelow helps Cottonwood. Were I to remain In the public school work 1 would rather head a consoli dated school than any other kind. There are not so many side diversions to injure night study, or atTect the moral training of the home. The place for a boy or girl at 15 to 18 years of age Is at home. Kducate them there. "Mr. l'o ell showed slides of a con solidated school of his own past ex perience, and or the Model Rural School upon the Klrksvllle Normal campus. Mr. J'owell spent three months living upstairs In this model school to thoroughly familiarize him self with the new education. He then showed slides of wagons used In transporting children to school. He showed that whereas this new pro posed consolidated district had only twenty-th ree sections of land, many others had from 45 to 100 sections of lands. He showed how this proposed district would draw toT.'i more state money than it now received, and would get (2,000 when It got ready to build a 110,000 building. He then showed a new type of building fitted to the district and to the gumbo soil, a large, one-story building with base ments for agriculture, cooking and sewing. With slides he showed how In fourteen years from the beginning of consolidation Indiana had nearly two consoiiaatsa aiitricts." M. E. Church Notes. There have been a number of mid year changes In the conference, since Its session last October, mother Morgan leaves Hamilton to become pastor at Chllllcothe; Ilrother llrotty leaves Stanberry to become pastor at Hamilton; Ilrother Itullson leaves Chllllcothe to become pastor at Mem phis: and Ilrother Sturges leaves Memphis to become pastor at Stan berry. Ilrother Crampton, who was pastor here In Oregon for seven years, and who for the past three years and a half has been the successful and ef ficient pastor at .lamesport, has very recently been changid to Princeton, and Ilrother D. 1. Harrison, who has been resting since conference, has been asslgmd to the Held at James port, tolsucctcd Ilrother Crampton, and so the work In the various fields goes on. Doyouwant to Lcccmc well In formedirn 11. e Industrial war In Colo rado or on our Httlejtllt with IhiertaV Head the two splendid articles upon these subjects In the last week's ('en tral Christian Advocate. Kltherone of thee articles arc fully worth the price paid for the paper, to say nought of the man.ijollier good things that appear from time to time as the paper Is printed. With last Thursday night we closed our cottage prajer meetings for the present at least. They have been a decided success. There were two splendid things that characterized them: llrst, the prajer meeting was takento the people, and Into their homes: and second, the meeting was entirely devoid of a stillness and for' matlty that so often Is seen In thu church or public building. The meet ing will be held In thechurch, Tlinrs day night, at s o'clock. Let us have a goodly number present. On next Sunday, morning and night, we are to have bishop Shcpard with us, This will mean much to the community. IIMiop Shepard Is one of the younger men of the School of lllshops and Is rated as an extraordi nary man and preacher. You will want to hear him. He comes In the morning In the Interest of the Oregon High School, and In the evening In an evangelistic service. The public Is most cordially Invited to attend any and all of the services for that day. On next Wednesday night, May we are to have another real treat In that we are to have with us Miss Ol ive Dunlap, who will give a public address In the Interest of home mis sions. This meeting will be held In lieu of the weekly prajer meeting. We want you all present. Let us till the house to hear this great message. The W. K. M. S. meeting at the beautiful farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Win. Malion, four miles east of town, was a very delightful occasion, Mrs. Sarah Itamsay was hostess for the af ternoon, and made the slay of the la dles very pleasant and enjoyable. Mrs, llelle Kreek was the leader of the meeting anil well Indeed did she conduct the service. Mrs. John Itam say was leaderof lheiuestlon list, and all present showed great Interest In tliN part of (he work. There were 21 present beside the Malion family. After the program had bien complet ed a most bountiful repast was served In the dining room, by Mrs. Malion and her daughters, We voice the opinion of every one when I say, "We had a most delightful time." Thanks of the society are due the following for the use of their cars, in getting the ladles out to the meeting ami bringing them back to town again: ltllcy Hulatt, Henry Cook, Charley Hunker, Harry Hasness, Howard Teare, Sol, Meyer, Win, Malion, and the pastor. Miss Kdna Lukens, one of our girls, was elected last week as one of the grade teachers, In our city schools. This Is a line recognition of her worth as a teacher. Miss ivdna Is a very choice girl, having been deprived of the tender care and attention of a mother's love, when but a child, she has gone on with determination and such force of character and womanly strength as to achieve what she lias, and has finally reached the distinc tion of being one of the county's best rural teachers. A couple of week's ago she finished a very successful term of school at Woodvllle, three miles east of town; so successful was she as a teacher that she was urged to take the school for another year, but the one here In town being so much more easily accessible, it Is a decided pro motion for her to have secured this town position, Here are tho congrat ulations of the entire church and community, Our services last Sunday were of a very high order. Miss Ilrltt, tho dea coness from Kansas City, gave three very excellent addresses, two at Ore gon, and one at the Gulp appoint ment. These addresses were highly spoken of by all who heard litem.

IF you produce 40 bushels of corn to the acre your cost per bushel is less than that of your neighbor who raises only 20 bushels. Therefore, you could sell more corn for a dollar than your neighbor. The same principle applies to shoes. Roberts, Johnson & Rand make more shoes than any other manufacturer. The more they make the less they cut to make. This saving goes into extra quality. There are lots of good shoes, but "Star Brand Shoes Are Better" Made In all styles, grades and sizes all prices for men, women and children. Every pair is made of honest leather.
