peculiarly adapted to certain grades of
work is an unenviable task. And the
making of salaries commensurate with
the work expected of teachers also in
volves oareful, consideration because of
the experience it ml special adaptability
some teachers, even in the same grades,
possess over others. Hence, the salary-
making feature of the work is one of the
most dilliault, This is rendered doubly
difficult when an etl'ort to curtail ex-
penses is to be considered.
A general reduction iu salaries has
been suggested and may be recommend

EASTERN STAR MEETIN6
WANTS A WHITE MAN
The school board, pursuant to ad-
journment, convened at the court house
Tuesday evening ^nd proceeded at once
to organize. All vital questions as to
the organization were settled behind
closed doors, or in executive session,
J. L. Burke was eleoted president, Dr,
L, Wagoner, vice-president and
>sae Fields secretary.
After organization, the first step to-
ward retrenchment was to eliminate the
kindergarten department in the city
hools. This was done by a unanimous
vote. A motion to dispense with the
services of a music teacher was lost by
a vote of ii to 4.
The question of fixing the salary uf
the city superintendent was next
brought up. W. W. Rowland moving
that the same be made 11,200 for the
term, and requiring the superintendent
to teach a part of the time. This was
lost by a vote of 7 to 3.
W. E, Gentry moved that the salary
Jbj made $1,500 a year, the same as at
present, and that the present incumbent,
R.M.Caldwell, be re-elected. The
notion prevailed, the vote standing 9 to

and be ready to report its action to the
board next Monday evening at 8 o'clock,
when the teachers for the ensuing year
will be employed.

amployed, and to select those who are
The divorce case of Mabel lsain
againHt Robert Isam came up in the
District court Monday for trial. After
hearing the evidence, Judge Tolbert
granted a ducree of separation.
The parties to the suit are Kiowa In-
dians. and the petitioner alleged and
proved abandonment, failure to support
and cruel treatment.
Robert seems to have been a bigamist.
At least some of the witnesses testified
that he would live with Mabel awhile,
and then go off and marry again. He
did this two or three times. And
Komalty says he hit her with a big
knife and made the blood flow freely
In this he was corroborated by Mabel
The Judge told her he was going to
grant her a divorce so she could marry
a good Indian.
"Are you going to marry again!"
asked the Judge.
"Yes,'' was the prompt reply.
"Have you already made a selection?"
"I hope you will get a good Indian the
next time —one who will love you better
than Bob did," said the Judge.
"Me aint goin' take no more Indian—
me goin' to get white man."
"Is that true? Have you already
'Well" smiled the Judge, "so far as I
am concerned, wait six months and you
and the white man can marry,"
The order of the Kasturn Star held a
very important meeting Tuesday night
in Masunio ball, about eighty-Hve mem-
bers being present. The worthy matron,
Mrs. Addio Jones presided over the
meeting in the same well composed and
matronly manner in which she always
does. In the absence of the worthy
patron, Mr. McBride was asked to (ill
the vacancy, which he did with much
oredit t.j liimself as well as the chapter.
All other officers were in their placeH
and were prepared for the occasion.
Mr. and Mrs O. A. Romine and Mr.
and Mrs. Holbort were initiated into
the order. After the iniatory ceremony
thn,\ were called upon for speeches, Mr.
Komi no being the only one to respond;
but bespoke in such high esteem of the
order that one could excuse the others
from the talk.
At the close of the chapter a social
hour was enjjyed, at which time ico
cream und strawberry sherbert were
served with cane and wafers.
At a late hour all departed for their
homes with expressions of satisfaction

The people of Hobart are obsessed of
the idea that a good run is better than a
bad stand. So when blaok clouds and
forked lightning began to show up
rather ominously Tuesday night almost
all began to look for places of safety—
not that they were needed, but to be on
the safe side. Of course one can't al-
ways tell, and for that reason tha storm
cave became the sleeping room for many.
The fire alarm was sounded to arouse
the sleepers, that they might make
observations for themselves and to find
out just how matters stood. But there
was no storm.

Hobart has never been visited by a
destructive storm and may never be.
Still, self-preservation being the first
law of nature, we should be prepared to
protect ourselves if such a calamity
should befall us.
In the residence portion of town
nearly every house has a good storm
cave where the family can take refuge
when danger approaches. But in the
business district no such provisions
have been made, and when danger is in
sight the business houses are either
closed up and the occupants rush home
or they have to face the storm unpro-
