State Superintendent L. R. Alder
man has addressed a letter to the
boys and gitls of Oregon who have
decided to grow some garden produce,
raise some chickens, or pigs, or sew,
cook or carpenter for their local fair
or the state far, in connection with
the ereat state wide series of agriqul
tural and industrial contests this year.
Ihe younc people are reminded that
their schools are closing, a hot aud
tempting summer is approaching, and
that the rewards both in prizes and in
good habit cultivation will continue
as big as they are now although the
number of contestants to claim them
may grow smaller. In his letter the
state superintendent says:
"Your schools are now closinsg and
many of you wil hear the call of the
swimming pool and the shady woods.
I hope you respond to these calls of
nature with a risht good will but do
not forgnt your aardens and your pigs
and poultry. If you forget your gar
dens, the calves, aud chickens, or
your little brothers and sisters are
likely to disturb them. If you neglect
your pigs they will squeal od you.
Stand by the work vou have started.
The number of contestants may grow
smaller but the value of the prizes
will grow greater, for with those
little lambs, goats, aud pigs to be
given for the best vegetables are fat
tening, those Shetland ponies are get
ting more glossy, and that thousand
dollars in cash is looming uo like the
mountains of Midas. At least $20,000
in cash and merchanise will be given
in prizes to the boys and girls of Ore
gon this year.
"Perhaps you would like to hear
what the schools in the other counties
are doing. You may easily guess
this from the fact that there are to be
over 85 children's fails. By county
the number already reported to my
office is as follows:
Bakerl, Bentonl, Clackamas 10,
Clatsop 1, Columbia 2, Coos and Curry
1, Crook 2, Douglas 6, Gilliam 1,
Grant 1, Harney 1, Hood River
Jackeon I. Josephine 1, Klamath
Lake 1, Lane 7, Lincoln 1, Lim
Malheur 1, Marion 2, Morrow
Multnomah 2, Polk 1, Sherman 1, Till
amook 2, Umatilla 7, 'Inion 7. Wal
lowa 1, Wasco 1, Washington 8,
Wheeler 3, Yamhill 1.
"We think there will be severl
others but the first reports show- the
above as certain. From the middle
of Augus to the middle of Octoberthe
work of boys and girls will be the
center of attraction at these fairs.
Isn't this a fine race? Now that you
are fairly into the game show your
grit and stick to it to the end."

Graduation of Class of Eight
at Christian "Church To
morrow Night "Mr. Bob"
on Last Evening.
This has been a busy week for
teachers and pupils of the local
school. Preparations have been goiug
on for weeks, in fact, getting ready
for the graduating exercises, prepar
ing exams and pert rming various
other stunts incumbent on teachers and
pupils at the close of the school year.
The week was begun by services at
the M. E. church on last Sunday morn
inc. at which time the baccalaureate
sermnn was preached by the pastor,
Rev. W. A. Pratt, to a large congre
gallon. This was a splendid oration
from the text "I Find no Fault in
this Man," an ilustration of perfec
tion from the life of Christ. Rev.
Pratt sustained his subject well and
made manv striking points, appropri
ate not only to the graduates, but to
all those present, as well. A choir
of six rendered some excellent music
for the occasion, and Mrs. Boyden
presided at the piano. The' church
was beautifnlly decorated for the
event bv the Juniors.
On last evenina, "Class Night" the
graduates presented "Mr. Bob" to a
good house at the Star theatre. The
cast consisted entirely of the members
of the 1913 class and considering all
tuey had on fiands during tle past few
weeks, they did well and are entitled
to ranch credit.
The program for tomorrow evening
will be presented at the Christian
church and will be free to the public
