On Tuesday of last week a jolly com pany of about 25 persons gathered at the hospitable home of Mr, and Mrs. C. W. White, at Papertack, this county, to assist In celebrating the 75th birthday of Mr. White's father, 'Squire Wilkinson White. No jollier company ever gathered at a more hoepitablo home to be welcomed and entertained by more pleasant hosts and hostesses , and for the time dull care and business worries were laid aside completely and a lot of people devoted themselves to having a good time and to making an old man feel young again. 'Squire White and his family emi grated from Kngland directly to this county over 20 years ago and they brought a full stock of genuine English hospitality with them, the kind Dickons so faithfully portrays In his stories, and their substantial homo, one of the finest stock ranches in Eastern Oregon, has long been proverbial for that quality. The glimpse which Dickens used to give bis reader into the Wardel house hold larder will not compare with that birthday dinner, but its profusion was almost equaled by the immensity of the ppelltes of the guests especially of.the Condon delegation. Mr. White received many tokens of remembrance from his friends, as well as countless congratulations on having roacled his 7olh milestone, with wishes for many happy returns of the day. Those present besides the family were: Mr. Bnd Mrs. Stephenson, Van Vactor, Wilcox and Pattlson, Miss Parrish, Messrs. Labous, Connolly and Nieklin, of Condon; Mr. and Mr. Geo. Iremon ger, of Fossil; Mr. and Mrs. Alex llar die and Mr. and Mrs. Russell, of Trail Fork, and Messrs. Codd, Trevett and Underwood, of Papersack. The party broke up Wednesday fore noon, ana tue finest sleignride oi tne season was enjoyed on the return trip, a portion of the guests, including the wr'ter enjoying the hospitality of Mr, and Mrs. Alnx Hardie en route. Sherman County Wisdom. From Observer. Gilliam county is wisely cogitating a Court House at Condon like the one Sherman county has In Moro, , Senator Stelwer says one of the same pattern will also eo op in Fossil. Both are in need of auch buildings. Arlington business men, and Gilliam farmers, are Invited to putnp $12,000 or $15,000 for a flouring mill then turn it over to "a capitalist" to rnn. Why not turn it over to a boy, after they've built It, and run It themselves. The Trlnevllle Journal had a book printed in Portland which It sent out os an annual, giving a fair history of Crook county and Its resources, well Illustrated. Such publications never produce returns to justify the expense without soliciting money from outsiders to aid the scheme. Moro has been chawed and clawed over in this way a time or two, but not by The Observer. The Hudson Pharmacy guarantees everv bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and will refund the money to anyone who is not satisfied after using two-thirds of the contents. This is the beat remedv in the world for la grippe coughs, colds, i croup and whooping eoueb and is pleasant and safe to take It nrevonts anv tendency of a cold to result iu pneumonia. To Sook Health. James Dunn left yesterday morning for Phoenix, Arizona, accompanied by hi nephew, Jim Horn. Mr, Dunn ha been in delicate health for the past year, and thi winter hi condition has been such that hi attending phynlrian, Dr. Wood, advled change of climate. The trip will be made via Ogden and Halt Lake. There Is good reason to believe that the pure dry air of that section will prove beneficial, and Mr. Dunn' many friend here onite In wish ing him a speedy recovery to health and strength, ' Normal Schools. Editor Own; In your Issue of the 10th Inttt. you copied an article from the Portland Telegram on "Normal Schools," Floaee give me a little space in your valuable paper to express a thought or two on thl question, which apparently ha two side: The article quoted hat a (mack of Portland selfishness in it. Jt I perhap true that the Oregon Normal School are not op to the standard. They are per haps costly and should make a better showing; but tht doe not argue well against the system. , The Telegram would have the state stop spending money on the Normal Schools at Weston and Monmouth and spend It at some point between Albany and The Dalles that la at Portland. Is it not a fact that a dozen Normal Schools can be established in a many country town in the state, with no more money for all together than would be necessary to build one in Multnomah, befitting the dignity of Portland? Again, Portland with it enormous wealth (which wealth, after all, i only the money drainage from the country) maintain a very excellent High School, giving her citizen an op portunity to secure for their children a belter education than the common schools afford, without sending those cuiuren nnnureu or nine away irom home to some Normal School to get it. Now, away out In the sparsely settled counties of the state it is a difficult mat ter to maintain or find even a good graded common achool, and if the ad vantages of a better education is wanted the youth must necessarily be sent hun dreds of mile away at an expense that few can afford. The Normal Schools supply this want, and tho state owes it to its citizens and to posterity that these schools be established. It may be that their quality is not up to a high stand ard, but they certainly are an improve ment over tho local common schools, and their quality will grow and keep pace with the growth of the state. They are not started for the purpose of booming a town, but to supply a better school with in a hundred miles or so of home and to fit teachers well acquainted with the characteristics of the country in their immediate vicinity to take op and bet ter the work of the common schools. . . The effort to locate, a Normal School at Burns la a laudable one. That section of the state needs one and the Legisla ture would be doing a simple act o justice and wisdom to assist such a school at that point. v I do not believe in legislative extrav agance or wastefulness, but I do believe there is very little danger that too much money will be expended for schools, even Normal Schools.
