Santa Glaus And Mb Flying Machine IT was the night before Christmas, and it may have been because Marjorie's papa had been read ing an article about a man who had a wonderful flying machine that all these strange things happened. Marjorie was sitting in the big easy fhair in the corner, where the light from the lamp did not hurt her eyes and where she could listen for any sound of Santa Claus' reindeer on the snow outside when suddenly she felt the chair move. Then it was whirled around and out- of the door into the street. Marjorie wondered what had happened, but Annabel, her biggest doll, who was in the chair with her, epo k e up and said: "Don't be f N. afraid. We are L ) going to see San- / \V ta Claus.

HEWS FRO J CUR NATIONAL CAPITAL First Month ot bession is Un fruittul, as Usual, Though Talks Abundant. Washington, D. C. —Congress can not "point with pride" to what it has accomplished during the two weeks and a half it has been in session pre vious to the holiday adjournment. For all practical purposes there might as well have been no until after the Ist of January. The few weeks of the session this year have been less profitable than heretofore because the time was not even devoted to a reorganization of the committees and organization of the new congress. Talk is Abundant. There was plenty of talk, even more than usual. If it keeps up we may expect a very crowded Congress ional Record. At the very outset members began making campaign speeches. The overburdened Record is already a daily evidence that a con gressional campaign is approaching. "Home consumption" speeches are filling the columns either when spok en to empty benches or under the "leave to print" concession. And the ...

, Co-operation Brings State From Big Promises to Wealth Mines—Wheat—Fruit. Great promises—Comfort —Wealth. That is the history of the Great Northwest, summed up in the few words of a busy man, and told by him to L. W. Hill, president of the Great Northern railroad, who declared that it expressed briefly the past and present of the territory through which the Hill lines operate. "History is a dull thing at best, said Mi 4 * Hill, "but summed up as that man did it it breathed of romance and peril, hard pioneering and subse quent awakening to the possibilities of the country that has produced it all and that lay begging for proper coax ing that it might give forth of its great hidden abundance. "But with all its hidden treasure this great northwest never would have been what it is today and could not rise to the still greater heights to ward which it is steadily mounting without big men. And these men were big enough almost from the beginning to see that in order to grow they must get ...

Assessor Purchase has about com pleted the work of computing the taxes of Pend Oreille county, and the books will soon be turned over to the Treas urer Reid for collection. Owners of real estate should remember that only 1911 taxes can be paid to the Pend Oreille county treasurer, and all taxes delinquent from former years must be paid to the treasurer of Stevens county.

They become delinquent on June 1, and bear 15 per cent interest thereafter until paid.

IN THE WORLD OF SPORT Much Expected of Rosenwald, Minnesota's Halfback. Minnesota coaches are sure that the Gophers will capture another western conference title this year. Just three players are missing from the 1911 elev en, and there Is lots of good material on hand to weld a powerful eleven together. Many western football ex perts predict that Rosenwald, Minne sota's great halfback, will be given a position on the all American team this fall. Last season he was one of the best back field men in the west. Grumpelt Some High Jumper. Some of the athletic followers thought Harry Grumpelt had gone back. Didn't look it when he cleared 6 feet 3 in the running high jump at the N. Y. A. C., in New York, recently. By the way, that was some compe tition.

A Bride Prize By IVAN TROGLOFF Copyright by American Press Asso ciation. 1911. A young man, evidently a traveler, ■was driven up to an inn in Smolensk, Russia, stepped out of the sleigh that bore him and went inside. After en gaging a room of the landlord he threw off his long overcoat lined with fur, went to a fire of blazing logs and warmed his hands, then, turning his eye, was caught by a notice tacked on the wall. It read: The fourth drawing for the year of the matrimonial lottery will take place at the town hall tomorrow evening, Nov. 12, at 9 o'clock. The stranger turned to the landlord and asked for an explanation of the strange notice. "In this place," said the landlord, "four times a year we have a lottery. One of our girls is put up as a prize. Five thousand tickets are sold at a ruble a ticket. The holder of the win ning ticket is bound to marry the girl, the money serving as her dowry.

Chicago.—The whole country north of the Gulf tier of states for several days was in the grip of intense cold and there was intense suffering on every hand. There was a general, heavy fall of snow throughout the lake states and the Missouri and Mississippi valleys, which added to the distress of the situation by tying up traffic in many instances and preventing the meas ures for relief that would be taken promptly under circumstances more nearly normal. Telegraph end tele phone companies experienced trouble with their wires in virtually every section. Portland.—Drizzling rain and sleet, which turned to ice as it fell, demoral ized Portland's streetcar service, left the residence districts in darkness, prostrated the telephone and tele graph services, and caused general ruin to the extent of several hundred thousand dollars.
