The attendance at the opera house Friday evening was tbe largest daring the county teachers institute now jnst closing. The vocal duets of little Maud and Rudolph Patterson delighted the audience and solos of Miss Maud Monk-bausand Miss Georgia Jacobs, and the recitation of Miss Kate Fullertnn were each well rendered and cordially received. Prof. E. D.

Ressler, the newly-elected president of the State Normal school at Monmouth, then delivered an address on "Tbe Treaanres of a Trained Mind." He said tbe question bad been much discussed whether mankind Is In reality happier than tbe lower animals. He did not discuss, deny or endorse tbe theory of evolution, bat expressed the opinion that if true, physical evolution bad reached lis acme of perfection In man and larther development is in tbe uatare of mental advancement. In hie conception, books and reading constitute one of the treaanroa ol tbe trained mind. Among other things, the cultured mind finds pleasure in the appreciation of tbe fine arts, the beauties of nature and especially In the compan ionship of other men of intellect. Tbe nature of a man's private conversation alone is often sufficient to show the ex tent to which he possesses a trained mind.

Thinking and studying are among the greatest mental pleasures, and the power to think logically and intelligently Is the chiefeet treasure of tbe trained mind. Tbe strenuous commercialism of tbe present, which maker the acquisition of wealth tbe paramount feature of life, is not commended. For humanlty'e pleas ure, preservation and advancement the intellectual features should have prece dence over the material. The speaker might be criticised for failing in many Instances to give credit for quotations included in bis address. No accusation of plagiarism is intended, but an edqeatur holding a position of prominence in the state Is expected to exact and give credit wherever due when ha makes a public address.

After a vocal solo by Miss Uatel Perry, tbe rendering of which merited an en core, President P. L. Campbell, of the University of Oiegoa, was Introduced. His address was upon tbe work ol the public schools of Orojon. Compared with other Oregon is still very young, especially in edncational mat ters.

Yet, rapid advancement is now bsini made, and within a few years no less thin 1,000.000 people will reside within our boriers. In our educational work tnucb his been accomplished in the past few years in syitematiiing the school work of the state. Uniformity of work in the several countios has been reached by the aloptioa of the new manual study. The elementary work of the grades in tiu.listrlct schools is followed by tin -hoot course of three or four years and this leads up to tho work ol tin state unlvorsity. Spe cial professional wjrk is provided for In the four state norm il schools and the agricultural colleite.

There is now a demand, the i.wni-r aiilel, lor 000 new teachers in this state each year, and thle the norm il schools are unable to fully supply, and still tlis call for professionally traioed teachers is steadilv growing. The agricultural college is making its iorliianca felt in improving the m-stholi ol farming in Ibis state, while education In the higher branches is well proidod I lo the state university. Ills talk was upon the state schools only, and dil not refer to the private or denomlnail insl schools and colleges. The public schools up to and Includ ing the state university are open to all, rich aod poor alike. While the charge Is freqnently made that the university Is maintained by the state for tbe benefit ol the children ol tbe rich, he says that at least 80 per cent of the students there are Irom the families of what are known as the common people.
