They will make their home in Seattle. Mr. Manning, a former resident of High Point, and Mrs. Manning are well known here and their many friends extend best wishes to them. INSTITUTE OF DAIRYING . The division of dairy and livestock of the state department of Washing- ton State College is staging the sixth annual Institute of Dairying. The institute will be held February 13 to 18 at Washington State College. SCHOOL BOARD VACANCY The term of W. J. Lewis, Jr., as director of the school board has ex- pired and his successor is to be el- ected at the coming election. Any- one in the nort~h district wishing to the title to the grounds. Rem Castagno called the meeting to order and announced the object. He stated the Bank had offered the field, less a 100-foot strip off the east side, for $700, plus the back tax- es on same, amounting to $954.86. He stated the department felt that they could handle the deal if they could have the support of the com- munity at their games, dances and other activities. Mrs. Alexander was the first speaker and she questioned the bank's title to the ground, owing to what she considered irregularities in past deals. E. D. Watkins asked several ques- tlons regarding the method through which the bank came into its title. Theodore Kinnune answered all questions pertaining to transactions since he has been associated with the bank and stated that the bank had title insurance on the ground, a fair. ly good guarantee that their title was clear. Views expressed by Dave Morgan which children visit every day. "The American Druggist," trade paper of drug stores, protests ener- getically and rightly against this pYe- posterous suggestion that drug stores take the place of the old saloon. The navy proposes a base at San Pedro, Calif., the harbor at Los An-! geles, big enough to hold the entire! United States fleet. This, according to naval authorities would give "the greatest Security for the nation in case of war, also economy and con- venience for the fleet." The world's most important "sea" used to be the waters near the Greek Islands. The landlocked Mediteran- ean later became the center of the world activities. Then the Atlantic Ocean became the real ocean. Grad- uaUy the world is realizing that the big Pacific, dwarfing t~e otber~, will be the "real" ocean of the future. The Pacific is certainly our-impor- tant ocean. Our fronta~ on that in~ ternational highway is longer than on the Atlantic, and far out in the Pa- cific we have Hawaii, and the Phil- ippines that foolish congressmen would abandon, and Guam, which should be made for the United States the greatest base in the world for fighting air planes. This could offend nobody, since it is known that the United States will attack no nation.

As an agency, therefore, not for promoting a general back-to-the-land movement, but for guiding and assisting those woh during the emergency period are attempting to become self-sufficing, we urge the maximum possible use consistent with their regular duties be made of, county agricultural agents and the home demonstration agents and of the state department of agriculture." 4.H CLUB WILL GIVE DANCE NEXT MONTH The 4-H Club held another of its Very popular social meetings, this time at the home of Miss Mas Harris. The girls played whist and bridge. Miss Steven won first prize and Jes. sic Smith consolation. This meeting had one of the biggest attendances of any of the meetings.

Old and new members are urged to attend. 23rd of February, two weeks from today. Thus far two have filed, Mr. Lewis filing for reelection, and Mr. C. W. Peters. File with Mrs. ! Bayh, clerk. Jog Morgan left last week for a visit at the home of his son, Griffith Morgan, in Port Angeles, as representative of the town, but the fact that the other thousand or so did not feel sufficient interest to attend the meeting speaks louder than thc January and February are always considered as quiet months. The same holds good .for news, and the year 1909 was no exception in either case, although a few commercial changes were noted. The Empire Lumber & Shingle Co. had been incorporated by the leg- sees of the Vaughan Mill. J. D. Ross of Novelty had purchas- ed the A. L. Wold herd of cows. The Sunset Telephone Co. was re- ported installing a new wire between here and Renton. The scNool was planning obser- vance of Lincoln's anniversary, to which the public was invited. In re- porting for the month of November, of those neither tardy nor absent l during the month, there were five from the high school, 28 in Mr. Boyce's room, 18 in Miss Kitchen's room, 28 in Miss Wold's room and :nfne in Miss Nagley's room.

Oleos, Mrs. Goods, Mrs. Tal- madge, Mrs. Favini, Mrs. John Carl- son, Mrs. Clyde Darst.
