Some two weeks -ago I left Omaha,* and one of Nebraska's favorite -blizzards, for the -beautiful sunshine, west of the -great hills. With the help of an extra ■ engine we suc- eeeiei in leaving the blizzard and Miseii lost time behind us, thongh the ■weather continued bitter cold until los-yoni "the Rockies," and in western IcMio and 'eastern Washington we fonud the farmers "making hay while the sun shines." They were plowing aa*5 plaating. Then over "the «blue" ami the Cascades. and through those Fenowaed and^ wonderfully rich' valleys of this grand state of Washington, to the sea, where the flowers were Ie bloom and the* earth covered with that beautiful green seen only in warm climates, where the snows are rain and the sua rules by day. Seattle, like all cities, (except Chicago,} Ms been fighting a time of depression, hut a new day has dawned*, and the" flrst to waken is Seattle. U]}m the side walks, from morn until atghtj oae sees only a moving mass of human beings, the streets crowded ■uith .teams and constantly moving street ears. 35fo city on the continent lay a better system or better equipped liao of street cars, and no city of its 7i73 esa hoast as many lines or miles. ■TTrenty-ioiir different lines and nearly c 7*3 Miadresl and twenty-five miles of t-77sl:l Many large stone and brick tiGAss are being built" and contracts licxe been let for a number more to be esQTjletecl this summer. In the resi- cleacs nor Mon of the city all is activity. 2n one small addition alone, one com- Tpsy has contracted to build over fifty 1707173S, some of them very large onfes. AM the clearance'house shows that size, or many 120 other city of its doable its else, are doing the business that 22s, ©lone here. With the timber, the wiie&t. the cattle, the hops and the milnes, coal, iron and precious xet-als, the resources of the state are B77.et-iQalIy unlimited, and from the 277ate3? garfe of these Seattle must reap the hsnefit. But another resource "Tiiieh most not* be overlooked—one of tlie C3Hi_t7y5s greatest—is its climate. Ii* brfirjgs sunshine and with it, happi- 7_7*T7 to all. Health prevails, and oaar fatal diseases of the east are un- I:7.&ui7 here.

It has large, commodious school«buildings in every part of the city, usually of stone and brick, built on sigHtly places and ornaments to the city. Seattle also has a manufacturing future second to none on the co^st. Its natural mineral resources promise to equal those of the great iron region of Pennsylvania. Its available timber supply is as near inexhaustabie as any. on the continent. Cheap fuel from the very numerous coal deposits within easy reach. Her harbor affords safe and ample accommodations for shipping, her rail transportation facilities are great and rapidly -increasing, and •soon to be added is a project now on foot to utilize the enormous power of the Snoquaimie Ealls, located about twenty-two miles from the city. These falls are 285 feet in height and the projectors claim they will be able to furnish power for all the street railways and all machinery now operated in Seattle and have a reserve force of an almost unlimited extent, and this can be furnished at fifty per cent less than present cost. Cheap power is the prime factor in .profitable manufacture. Then there are thousands of aeres of the richest agricultural lands yielding crops almost beyond the belief of eastern farmers. The average hop crop in Madison county, the banner hop county of Hew York, is 700 to to 800 lbs., while here the average is, 1600 lbs. and in one case 5,000 lbs. have been raised on one single acre. A Mr. Delano living near here, put in last year twelve acres of onions. His labor and expense until crop was marketed was §800. He harvested 4,000 bushels which he sold at $1.25 per bushel, netting him $4,200 for the crop or $350 per acre. • Ifow only a word about the magnificent and varied scenery which meets the eye at every turn, for my letter, I fear, is already too long: I do not" know where to look for words to describe to you the beauties of these hills and valleys. I certainly have none at my command. When one looks out upon this part of God's beautiful earth he is made to exclaim: The green,, the green, the beautiful green! Then raising his eyes, to cry: The hills, the hills, the beautiful hills! where we see the pure white snow the year round. Then those massive and high mountain peaks—Mt. Eainier, Mt, Baker, Mt. Hood and many lesser ones are all to be seen from this point. I expect to remain here some fou? weeks yet and then go east to be present at the opening of the worlds fair. J. S.

Spring* Wraps. Many gowns have capes to match them, and these will be the favorite wraps for spring and summer wear, though there are coats and jackets for those who want them. The latter are much shorter, having returned to the length of three years ago; they have the lapped and double-stitched seams, fasten wtth large pearl buttons, and have one, two or three full shoulder- capes; some of these capes are cut to quite a point both front and back, and are plaited very full. As a standard garment, cloth cgpes twenty-eight inches long, in black, .navy blue, and. tan, are shown; these have shoulder- capes of velvet or cloth, and are usually silMined. They are cut very full, often measuring four mid a half yards in circumference.—Erom "Easter Hats .was,55 in Demorest's Eamily Sciiool iNotes. Ethel Elden has returned to school after an absence of several weeks. Alberta and Hellie Long entered school this week. « We are greatly in need of some bass singers, as most of them have left school. The pupils are somewhat refreshed after a vacation of two weeks and seem to take a deeper interest in their studies. Myrta Garland, James Bicknell and Chas. Eoss have left school for an indefinite time. The grammar class diagramed and analyzed the first paragraph of "Paradise Lost." We intend to diagram the entire poem if time will permit us. Mary Brodie is teaching at Erost. We hope that her pupils will be as attentive and studious as she was in performing her work at the high school. The motto of the senior class is: "It doth not yet appear what we shall be." Their officers, etc., have been previously reported. -We heard Prof. Hutchinson *say: "Parents dissatisfied with the work done by their children should ask themselves, 'What have I done to encourage their work? Stow many times have I visited the school?' etc. Are* you dissatisfied with their teacher? What is the cause of this feeling? Is not the mote in thine own eye? Teachers can only hold pupils responsible for what they see and not Star what others say they saw. Dissatisfaction may, in. many cases, be removed by a visit from the parent. Teachers cannot adapt themselves to the whims rand petty conceits of every one, and pursue a straightforward course in applying the best methods in education," .fei77.7s rants aiaoag the fore- 'Magastae for -April. -Resellers' Institute. The State Teachers' Institute for Clare county will be held at Clare, commencing at 10 o'clock a. m., Monday, April 17, and closing at 4 p. m., Eriday, April 21. Commissioner Boys of Earwell, local committee. The value of the instruction received at these institutes is being very generally recognized hy teachers and school officers. As a rule, it has been the experience of county examiners and other examining officers, that the most successful teachers are those who have availed themselves of the normal instruction offered by these local institutes. The daily sessions of the institute for this year will, as heretofore, be devoted exclusively to topics of special interest to teachers, presented by persons of extended practical experience as teachers, and who have made a special study of institute work. The evening lectures will be of a popular character. - The institute law allows teachers, whose schools are in session at the time appointed for the county institute, held under the direction of the state superintendent, to close their schools during the continuance of such institute without forfeiting their wages for as many half-days as they are in attendance at the institute. This provision of law, and the fact that there will be no enrollment or tuition fee exacted, should insure the attendance of every teacher in the county who possesses the true pro- fessibnal spirit. Eull particulars in regard to board, etc., may be obtained upon application to the local committee. BJEHftY B. PATTEKaH.!., Sup't of Public instruction. & —* K-pmMiean Caucuses.
