5 ' INTERS! SHOWN IN SCHOOLS usi Sunerlntendent J. H. Ackerman 'returned last evening from a threo I weeks' tour of tho Southern Oregon counties. Ho was accompanied by I President P. L. Campbell, of the l State University, and President B. D. Ressler. of the Monmouth State Normal school nnd visited union ! Baker. Malheur, Harney, Lake, frtrnnt nnd Klamath counties. "We had a delightful trip; It had rained nrfivlous to our coinlnc to that sec tion of tho country, and the dust was laid so as to make driving a.pleas- ure," said Professor Ackerman. In r Klamath Falls the Institute proven in. creat success, not only did every headier in the county turn out, but 'tho natrons of tho schools attended tho evening sessions in great num bers. Everywhere the party was well received, and a healthful school spir it was manifest. In Lake county the court, Instead of tho usual ?G tax, raised $11 for school purposes, the largest appropriation over mnde by any county, and Instead of being con tented with tho 10-cent library tax, they made It 30 cents. "Such signs of Interest speak well for our schools in that county. It Is encouraging to see such Interest. Another county court, howover, and I do not care to mention its name, cut tho tax In half," said Professor Ackerman. The party made tho trip in a private conveyance. A IIAPPr FAMILY. , Employs Divorced Wife to Cook for Number Two. "Tho County Sheriff" n Big Hit. Last night a large and enthusias tic audience greeted tho first per formance of "The County Sheriff" at the KHnger Grand theatre. The play sprang Into instant favor and pleased tho audience, as was freely demonstrated by the applause last night. Percy Brlgham, as tho coun ty sheriff was excollent. He Is nat ural In tho part, and his dinlect Is perfect. Leroy Waltham, as tho vlf lago blacksmith, also has an Im portant part which ho played with his usefut carefulness, and was In tho character at all' times, and was . responsible for a good share of tho comedy. Godfrey Matthews, as tho express robber, was good and bad at tho same time. Ho was tho villain In the play, and acted It well. Harry Belmour played two parts last night, and deserves great credit for the wonderful chango of character and his work ns tho old man. Charles Marlon appeared In a low comedy part last night, and kept tho audl enco laughing when ho was on tho stage Doc Tucks nnd Frank Hamp ton were both cood In their respec tive parts. Miss M. Adelaide Power has a thankless part to play this week, but, nevertheless, she appears to good advantngo all tho way through tho play. Miss Mlnnlo Gor schel, as tho mother who speaks her mind, was fine. She understands the character and plays It. Miss Earle Elverson, as "LIz'beth," was tho big hit of the show. Her makeup was lino, and her scenes with Dave were very funny. Miss Inez Wright as Emily was a short part, In which she appenrs to good advantage. A man living with two women, to both of whom ho has been lawfully wedded, and one of whom is divorced and employed by him as n cook is the household of the other, is a most astonishing situation which has been attracting much attention here. W. V. Venable, a merchant of Danville, was a good many years ago married to Nannie Slzemore. Not many months ago ho tired of life with his spouse and a divorce suit was entered, the result being that a decree was granted him. He, how ever, immediately employed his former wlfo as a domestic In his household. Soon afterward Venable met Mrs. Skipworth, a widow, who is a teacher in one? of tho public schools, and, becoming Infatuated with this woman, he decided to again become a benedict. Accordingly a proposal and acceptance followed Preparations were then begun for the wedding and the former wife of the prospective bridegroom was re quired to prepare the feast attendant upon the marriage of her former lord and consort to a woman who had succeeded' 1n her affections. She, however, made no protest against performing these duties and with apparent willingness cooked the cakes and other delicacies re quired. According to reports the threo are now living happily and contended under the same roof. GREAT INLAND SEA. Waters In Salton Basin Compel S. 1. to Build. Tom So you're thinking of mar rying the widow.

Five carloads of men and mater ials havo been hurried to Salton ba sin by tho Southern Pacific for the purpose of undertaking tho con struction of a new road around the rising waters of Salton sea. Tho new road will be built somo distance north of the present road, on a grade thirty feet higher than tho highest point on the present line. In all 50 miles of track will havo to be laid. In somo quarters this Is believed to be n precautionary measure, remov ing any chance that tho Southern Pa cific would bo tied up should an at tempt to shut out tho waters of the Colorado rlvor fall. The water of tho sea are already lapping dangor ously near tho present roadbed, which will be submerged within a few weeks unless tho Inflow Is check- fd.

A proofreader, anent the Import ance of trifles, read from his note book theso absurd sentences, each made by the omission of a single let tor: "Tho conflict was dreadful and tho enemy -was repulsed with great laughter. "When tho president's wife, enter ed the humble sitting room of the miner she whs politely offered a hair. "A man was yesterday arrested on tho charge of hnvlng eaten a cab man for demanding more than his fare. "An employe In tho service of tho government was accused of having stolen a small ox 'from tho mall. Tho stolen property was found In his vest pocket." Deserves Hipping Up. A dispatch from Ames, Nob., head ed "shall girls wear pants," says: "Tho future of tho beet sugar In dustry in northern Nebraska depends upon a question of personal ethics. 'Shall girl beetweeders at work In tho fields wear overalls or skirts?' Is tho Issuo." This Is certainly going ono stop too far. It Is bad enough for the wife to wear tho pants, as she some times does but let us not make it unanimous by Indulging tho girls In tho practice before they aro married. This proposition deserves ripping up, Ex. Ireland's high water mark in pop ulation was reached in 1841. She hnd then 8,175,124 peoplo. Sho has now fewer than 4,500,000. WWidSU.'E!iyHr3i!

Tho London Economist In a long review of tho wheat harvest this year asserts that "tha world's cereal harvest of 1906 can not fail to provo ono of tho greatest over producod." It remarks that "or.ts alono, among the cereals In England, seem likely to turn out below tho averago In productiveness." In most of the countries of Conti nental Europo tho harvest 13 n good one. Tho wheat crop Is abovo the nverngo In tho great producing pro vinces In tho north of Franco, but it litis suffered from drought In tho south and west. It Is thought thnt Franco will need to Import very llt tlo if any wheat. Spain has reaped a good harvest generally, whllo Germany has good crop3 of barley and oats as well as1 of wheat and ryo. According to tho latest official estlmnto Austria-Hungary will pro duce a much larger wheat crop this year than Inst. From Russia reports vary greatly. Tho wlntor wheat crop has been officially roported to bo n good one, whllo the more Im portant spring wheat crop Is a poor ono In all but a few' provinces. Owing to tho wet woathor and othor causes, ono of tho smallest crops of recent years was gonorally expected. Roumanla Is now expected to pro duco a record wheat crop, and Sorvla and Bulgaria havo good crops of wheat. Tho Canadian wheat lmrvost on tho wholo will not provo n very abundnnt ono. Evon allowing for Increase of area In tho comparatively now Cnnadlan provlncos It Is doubt ful whothor tho production will mako mnko up for Ontario's deficiency as compared with last year's good crop, and possibly tho total will bo loss than that of 1905.
