BEAVER HIGH SCHOOL CLOSES
The ichool year 1613-11 for tho Bea-
ver High School closes Friday. Com-
mencement exorcises will be held Fri-
day night when n class of eight will be
graduated from our school and glvct
diplomas which nill admit them t(
any University or College in this asso-
ciation. Tho work which has boon done in thr
Beaver high school the past two year
Is worthy of the greatest commenda-
tion and speaks volumes for the in-
structors through whose ability and
energy tho work accomplished has beer
made possible. The school during this
tima has practically been brought from
ohaos to order mid correct system nnd
too much cannot bo wild in favor ol
the excellent faculty who hnvi so sue
ccssfully conducted the work. I) irlnp
this time the high school Imp been un
ler the luperlntPiitlviic) of Prof Johr

izer nnd booste- is seldom equalled
tnd rarely excel led
Jojj.n E. Swaim.
Tlie fame of Beaver high school has
been sent abroad throughout this nnd
d joining counties and. In fact
throughout educational circles of the
state Beaver Is known to have ono of
the very best accredited high schools
and one which Is a peer nmnng those
of the western half of ur great com-
monwealth. Prof. Swaim Is known to
the educators of Oklahoma as an ag-
gressive widc-awako leader and in
everything of a sohool nature he has
seen to it that Beaver school has not
been forgottou nor failed to bo regis-
tered near tho top In any movement
for the advancement and extension of
Interest In our behalf. .In tho school
room and on the athletic field ho has
exhibited the samo interest and en-
thusiasm. .. -"' '
But tho succcfi of Beaver high school
i not to be ttributed wholly to Prof
Jnaim's energy nnd activity. To his
ble corps of assistants is duo equal
praise nnd approval. Without their
faithful cinciontlouswork much that
has been dono could not have been
done and Beavor high school would

with tho singlo purpose of directing

usefulness and Impressing upon them
the cxtremo necessity for their utiliz-

In nil. we fcol that the Beaver high
school as a whole hus given most effi-
cient instruction nnd that tho work
done cannot be commended In ton high
terms. Tho people of Beaver nre Just-
ly proud of this excellent institution
and thoy aro anxious that the high
standard of excellence which it has at-
tained bo maintained. Thoy foul that
this would bo nesurrcd by tho return of
tho present faculty and all regret that
Miss Wick ham lias concluded she can-
not return. The assnrranoo however
or Prof. Swaim's and Miss Wright's re-
maining and tho hope that tho vacan-
cy may be creditably filled gives us
confidence that wo have littlo to fear
for the future of our school so long at

Mrs O. P. Twyford roturned Satur

came over tho water was so deep that

RAIN! HIGH WATER!
This county is certainly getting all
that is coming to it and moro in the
way of moisturo the past few weeks.
Rain haB fallen at intervals through-
out almost tho entire week past and
while It has been steady and gentle for
tho most part yet at times the fall has
been heavy enough to put the draws
and ravines runningbank full. Another
rise of several feet in the river came
Suoduy and Monday but has again sub-
sided. It was reported early Sunday
that the ilood-gatus were open and
that a bigger raise than ever was com-
ing this way but the report proved to
be ungrounded and to date not enough
water has come down to put tho river
On account of the high-water cry the
Sunday train was ordered back from
the south side of the river and the
frolght also boing down the lino has
left us without train or mall service.
The temporary supports which had
been put in place making tho Laverno
bridgo passable were also removed to
prevent their loss by tho supposed
high water nnd thus train service was
cut oil for a few days. The railroad
bridge Is now under construction how-
ever and regular trafilc will bo resum-
ed by tho last of the week.
Wheat fields are drinking In the
moisturo and though our people may
bo somewhnt inconvenienced in travel
and mall facilities and n few sutler
lots yet as a whole everybody Is feel-
ing mighty good over the splendid
rains nnd aro dreaming dreams of the
bountiful harvest they feci marred of
reaping. .Even now thoy can hear the
big silver dollars jingle in their pock-
eti and nobody menis inclined to
grumble at the mud.
