As the people of our state voted in furor of a ejastltutlonal coavootion. three months will elapse before the governor will be authorized to Issue writs of election to the various sheriffs of the state providing fur the i-.oldlng oi an eiectlonto select two de.cgates from each of the state senatorial dis tricts and fifteen delegates at large. The governor may wait even six months fallowing the official an nouncement of tne vote cast at the el ctlon on August 2. r.ach or tho party committees in the state senatorial districts as constitut ed at the time of the election shall make provisions for placing one can didate in nomination, and the two re ceiving the highest number of votes shall be declared to have been elected. The candidates must appear upon their party ballots under suca party desig nations as arc permitted by law. Each voter will vote for only one candidate for delegate fiom his district. The fifteen delcgates-at-large are to be nominated by petitions filed with the secretary of state containing the numes of not less than 5 per cent of the total vote cast for governor at the last preceding election. All of the delegates-at-largo will have to be printed n a sing e Independent ballot. On this point the law say.i: -Ail candidates tor deiegatcs-at-large shall be voted for upon one inde pendent and separate ballot, without any emblem or party designation whatever." The fifteen persons who teceive tho highest number of votes the state over for dclcgates-at-Iarge will be duly leclared elected. Within six months following tne election ut' ile.tvm tho governor is rcciuired tu convene the constitutional convention by proc amu lion. i ne delegates win be judges ot the election of their own nembers and make rules fur their own government very much as Is done by the two houses of the legislature. A majority snail constitute a quorum. The meet lugs of delegates must be held with open doors, the qualification of a delegate shall be the same as the uual mcatlon or a state senator. It vacan cies occur by death or f rum any cause the governor shall appoint, but ho shall select a man or tho same pout leal faith as the predecessor. The work of the convention must be submitted to the people for their ap proval or rejection at a general elec tion for that p-rpose not prior tg sixty days following the adjournment'of the convention or six months thereafter. The salary of members of the conven tion wilt be $10 a day and mileage. The convention will elect Its own of ficers and provide for such expenses as it may deem advisable. It also will be its own Judge to when It shall ad journ. A Fair Warning. Prosecuting Attorney Bissett has notified the sheriff of our county to arrest all patties violating the auto mobile law, by bright lights, spot lights or with cut-outs open and reck less driving. Thus far during the vcar 1921. then) have been ten automobile accidents la out county, one fatal. In 1920 there Mere 11. In 1919 there were 21. A goodly portion of these were not caus ed by violations or the law, put a goodly number were. Motor car fatal ties in recent vears throughout the country have n steady Increase, and there Is little eonolatlon In the fact that this incieae keens pace with, and some time- exceeds the Increase in the number of motor ve hicles In use. Figures obtained from the registration area show thnt the In crease In the number of fatalities and accidents of all kinds l 20 to 25 per cent each year. The lnuranco statis tics so far obtained indicate this year will produce an accident record very near or even anovo me nign ngurcs of previous year. The seriousness of this situation Is revealed In a report. Ised on authori tative figures, which was made at a re-n-nt rnnforence un hiehwuv traffic at Yale university. This report showed that In the nineteen months of Amer ica's participation In the war ninety one thousand persons were killed, chiefly by motor vehicle', on the streets ami lilgnways oi me country. A significant fact l that about twen ty-five thousand of these were chil dren. In the same period the toll of the battle fields wa less than nrty thousand killed. It it nnlv bv united action that any thing effective may b accomplished In this vital problem. It Is not a more matter of telling motorists to "be care ful." Motor car drivers must be com pelled to observe greater care and to obey the law, and we hope nil good, law abiding citizens of our county will lend every assistance to our capable pro-ecutinz attorney and sheriff to sec that the motorist uoc ooey mc iu.

Missouri, celebrating her 100th birthday year, stands solidly behind the proposition of giving compensation to Its soldiers. Thnt has been shown when Secre tary of State Becker, on Thursday last, announced the final vote of the special election held August 2. The lurgest.vote was on the bonus. Ninety-seven counties returned ov erwhelming majuritles. So sweeping was the victory for the proposal that most agricultural counties, whero it was feared the bonus might lose, tiue to the low prlrc of farm crops, return ed overwhelming majorities for the measure. The total showed a 2 to 1 victory for the $15,000,000 bond Is .no to pay compensation. The total vote for the propoai was -I'V-J' " luu.iai or a favorable mujority 01 uu,iu, The seventeen counties voting against the bonus were: Benton, Bol linger, Boone, Callaway, Christian, Dallas, Dent, Howell, Laclede, Macon, Madison, Mercer, Oregon, Ozark, Shel by, Texas and Wayne. Thn new constitution proposal car ried by a majority of 48,216, although sixty-one counties rolled up votes against It. The total vote on a now charter for Missouri was 175,345 yes," and 127,130 "no." The amendment providing for the removal of the clause against women holding office was carried by the slim est majority of all the proposals. The vote was 159,230 for, and 147,751 against, a favorable majority of 11,-479. The amendment providing for the use of the motor license fees in tho state to pay interest on the $60,000,000 road bond issue was given a ravoraoie majority of 194,498. The vote In the special election was but a fourth of the number cast In the general election, last November, when the state ballot boxes collected approx imately 1,300,000 votes. The body of Sergeant Paul Shutts arrived in Mound City, from over the seas, Thursday of this week, and will be given a full mllltary'funeral. next Sunday,. August 21, in charge of Paul P, Shutts Post, American' Legion. Our Chtulsuqus, Monday night marked the end of six days chock-full of good wholesome en; mainment Oregon's 14th Chau tiuo.ua. The White & Myers Chautau qua System fully lived up its reputa tion of furnishing superior talent. Many of the numbers were, alone, worth more than the price or the season ticket. In only one respect was the Chautauaua not a grand success. aad that was financially. But this deficit will be made up, and while the dates for next year's Chautauqua have not been dellnlleiy decided upon as yet. the people of Oregon and vicinity know the value of a Chautauqua; they appreciate the things a Chautauqua stand for and they can be depended u.tou to back stronger than ever a Chautauqua for next year.

Tho Hon. Leon Dabo, one of the leading financial experts of the coun try, lectured on "The World Conscience Today." He gave statistics which were startling, showing wnere our money has been going. "Millions of dollars are being spent right now upon un necessary luxuries, und upon wane things such us rouge, cold creams, beads, etc.. which cannot even come under the head of luxuries,' fuiil Dr, Dabo.

On Tuesday. Auzust .2. Henrv Schacffer, Philip Schtotzhaues and Omar Williams left Forest City to In vestigate the merits of the Woods Brothers' system of river bank protec tectlon, going first to Omaha, and from there to various points in the vi cinity where this form of protection has and Is, now being successfully In stalled. The following letter from them clearly endorses this work and speaks for Itself; 'To the Editor, Holt County Sen tinel. Oregon, Mo., Dear Sir: So much Interest has recently developed in river bank protection that we have started the formation of a district In our community, under the laws of the state, for the purpoe of doing some- ining to stop the ravages of the Mis souri River each year, as It has been cutting uvsiiy valuable farm lands. "Having heaid considerable recently regarding the Woods Brothers' system of placing retards In tho river to ac complish this end, and of their won derful success in eacli case, we deter mined to mnke an investigation for ourselves. We must admit that we nave seen results which we never dreamed or, und arc satisfied beyond the question 0 fa doubt that tho solu tion has been found for saving farms nu other property from tho uunerv river. "Starting early from Omaha on Wednesday, wo crossed the bridge to Council "luffs nnd drove over excel lent roads, about ten miles south, to what Is known us the "Munawi Job." Here we saw wlme the river had cut a deep gash Into farm lands, one own er losing over 700 acres of valuable land. Tc old bank of the river plainly showed wheic the current had once ran, but now it runs several hundred yards out from the shore. "The retards hnve caused sand bars to form along the shore where form erly the current was and have embed ded tho trees completely. They will stay In 11 perfect state of preservation for an indefinite period due to their being away from the air. Land values, we learned, Incieused 100 per cent since this bank protection had been In stalled. There is no question 111 our minds but that the work was well worth any community ntong the river putting in. At Folsom. Iowa, where we lcam- Ad.lKuro hml th'in unpnt nnrlv tuo . , --T- --- i,T-v.i ,iH million dollars 111 unsucccssiui euorii to ston the river, until Woods Broth ers came along with their system, we saw a most wonderful sight. The river had cut un immense pocket into the the Burl nitton R. R. to change their right-of-way three times until they had finally moved back n distance or n mile ami a nan irom where they first ran. In desperation they once dumped 100 loaded box cars Into the river, but without any effect. Finally this new system of bank pro tection was installed during 1918 and 1919 and Immediately tne cutting was stopped und the Immense pocket of hundreds of acres began to fill In. To day u sand bar covers most of It and is covered with vegetation, while the once treacherous current Is over a mile t.. ilm vi-,.t. where it belongs. This year a crop of hay was cut on tho bar. This certainly is wonderful proof of what can be accomplished. "From Folsom we drove back through Council Hluffs to a point some distance above on the Iowa side called Ti, Nm-ruu-y " where work nas oern done und Is now going on for the Illinois Central Railroad. Eleven re turds have been Installed within the past three months, tne rcsun 01 which is already iippurent, t.nd five more are to hi put In. Here the river make t sharp turn und hitting the Ncbra.ka sido shoots ucross to lown and has cut uwuy hundreds of acres of land. The work so far installed has caused the formation of un Immense sund bar In tho touner channel und caused the. in , linrk where It belongs, and us tho work progresses It caucs this rand bar to grow und extend down the liver forever protecting the bank. o snw the steamboat on the opposite side ol the river loading trees which would Inter lie brought across aim instumu 1,, nlnpp. Where the work was goin;r on the current hit the partly completed icturd with considerable lorce, uiu 11 held steady. We visited several ot these retiuds ami saw ut dote range tne excellent condition they were in although somo of them had gone through 11 severe test. After lunch In Omaha wc drove to Bellcvue, Neb., about ten miles south nf the cltv. where a district has re cently been formed like the one we propose to navo ai rurcai vnvy. nun. hud lust been started there, the boats niwl other euulnment huving Just ar rived the day previous. We saw one o fthe concrete piles, which Is uesed as nn nnrhnr tn fasten the trees to. ready to be sunk to bed rock and all the other details attending the operation. When these piles or anchors are sunk tney are bevond anv possible chance of washing out. "As we had to catch the 4:30 train hnm. It was imnossible to 'visit any additional work, but what we did see was enough to convince the most skep tical that Woods Brothers have solved the matter of river bank protection and our conclusion, after a thorough and honest investigation, is that their sys tem Is the cheapest and most errective that can be secured and that our com munity should by all means, have it installed when the time comes that we are in a position to do so.

We regret to learn of the death of Miss Fannie McNutt, which occurred In a Denver, Colo., hospital, Wednes day, August 10, 1921. She will be remembered by many or our people, asi she taught in our public schools la 1893, "94, 95, '96 and '97, and waa considered one of. If not the best teacher, we ever had in our schools, nnd she had a warm spot in the hearts) of the pupils and patrons that tirno has never effaced. Miss McNutt began her teaching ca reer In the Keen school of Boone coun ty. She taught in the city schools of vandalia, Oregon and Butler, and for the last twenty-two years she hat been teaching In the Kansas City high chool. Mls McNutt was born in MslU Bend, In 1378 she came to Columbia and entered the University, and wan raduated from the School of Educa tion in 1883 .

Her mother, Mrs. Arline McNutt, went to Denver to nccompany the body buck to Columbia, Mo., where funeral services were held Saturday. Aug. 13, and Interment wu In the Columbia cemetery. Wc herewith reproduce a beautiful tribute from the Kansas City Journal on the death of Miss McNutt, which, wo think, voices the high esteem la which this noble woman was held by our citizens: AN IDEAL TEACHER. "Without disparagement of any of the other admirable teachers in the ub ic schools of Kanas City, it may be said that none excelled Miss Fran ces McNutt, whose death occurred the other day, in all the qualities whlck round out the qualifications or an lacai toucher. For twenty years she had practice her profession here. Impressing upon thousands of boys and girls tho per sonality who.e greatest appeal was 11 sympathy and understanding that com manded airection as well as resnecu Amnlv enulnned intellectually for tho calling which she made a profession la tne highest sense, she auueu 10 11 moo uallties not always possessed oy evea he test inromMt-mstructorv Quietly,.,. nnnhtni,lv-k within the so-called narrow sphere of the graded schools, she continued year after year to influ ence more and more appreciably those who came under her care, moldln-t their characters by the example of her own personality In the capacity of friend and counselor as she developed their minds In the capacity of teacher, "Her career may well stand as an in spiring example of the best and broad est which the teaching profession of fers, whose experience and eueciive 1,1.11 n not measured by professional eminence, but which embrace the op portunities of the humbler stations and often find there the most effective op portunities of all." 4 Operstlie In Ninety D)h. In the opinion of Melville E.
