Ask Bids on School House In this issue of The Miner appears an advertisement for bids on the pro posed new school house for the New port district, No. 1, of Pend Oreille county. According to the arrangements made by the school board with Archi tect Wilson, the complete plans have been prepared and are being submitted to contractors, the architect having ad vertised extensively for bids, and the chances are there will be a number of bids on the work. Bids are to be ac cepted with the understanding that the work is not to proceed unless the voters of the district authorize the necessary bond issue to provide funds.

Railroad Rumors From North of Us The following from the Nelson, B. C., Daily News is of interest, as showing how our neighbors on the north are planning additional railroad develop ment that will affect this section: Rossland B. C., March 10. In ac knowledging his nomination by accla mation as Conservative candidate for Rossland in the forthcoming election Lorne A. Campbell outlined a railway policy which if put through would be vastly to the advantage of the district. The fact, he said, that the Kettle val ley lines had been bonused to the ex tent of $10,000 a mile for the extension of their present line from Coldwater Junction to Hope, a distance of 50 miles showed that eventually the road would be made part of the main line system connecting the Boundary country with the coast. At present the extension of the Kettle valley lines from Republic to Spokane was being contested by the Great Northern, and what would do the southern portion of British Columbia the most good would be a c...

VOLUME XI SCHOOL PUNS HAVE ARRIVED Bids Asked For on Construction of Building. Plans Complete in Every Detail For the past three years the board of directors of School District No. 115, now School District No. 1 under the new county division, has been harassed with the problem of providing addi tional school room for a rapidly grow ing school system. The three high school inspectors, sent out each year by the State Board of Education during the past three yerrs, have been unanimous in their criticism that Newport's pres ent school building is much too small for its present growth. Inspector Twit meyer, who visited our schools on Mon day, March 25, while paying the school a high tribute for the character of the work being done and the general sys tem of educational affairs, said that the only imperative need of the school was more room. At the present time the old school building has but six class rooms, with four very small rooms which are inade quate even for recitation rooms for h...

ENGLISH STRIKE IS CAUSING SUFFERING With Coal Vanishing. Thousands of Families Are Reduced to Want. London.—Appalling suffering pro- Tails throughout England, Scotland and Wales as a result of the prolonged rtrike of the coal miners. Every dis trict in the three countries is affected. Thousands of families living in the cities have pawned their property, in cluding furniture, and are living in bare rooms without fuel.

Drawing Wrong Conclosions A number of people in the lower river country have reached a wrong conclu sion from a perusal of the annual report issued by Auditor Murray. In making up the list of current expense fund war rants issued, there appears in the report the following item: ''Expense Incident to Organization, $9174.75." This has been interpreted by some as being "Ex pense Incident to County Division, "and the charge has been made that Newport having volunteered to pay all the ex pense of securing division did not do so, but placed this burden on the county. As a matter of fact, Newport did bear every item of expense connected with the passage of the bill through the legislature, and no bill for any of this work has ever been presented to the county, nor could the commissioners allow one cent for that purpose. In order to make the matter exactly clear to all, Auditor Murray has item ized the "Expense Incident to Organiz ation," and the following is the list of warrants issued tha...

SOLVING THE LOGGED OFF LAND PROBLEM By CHAS. M. TALMADGE, Proprietor Silver Birch Farm, Newport, Washington. (Published in Western Farmer, Spokane.) To the homesteader in the timbered areas of eastern Washington and northern Idaho the most important factor in the establishment of a farm home is the clearing of logged-ofE land. The first crop of the average home steader, if within reach of txansporta tion, is the remaining standing com mercial timber left on the premises after the loggers have done their worst. This crop usually consists of cordwood, and, in some cases, cedar posts, shingle bolts, etc. If these re sources are carefully conserved, the net revenue derived fiom the average quarter section should bring the own er in the neighborhood of $2500. Some claims, of course, will bring much less and others a great deal more. The process of marketing these products usually covers a period of two or three years, depending largely on the resources and equipment available in their ma...

A Surprise By MARTIN BRADFORD I am a college professor and add to my income by lectures on astronomy. One November day I started to walk from the town of A., where I had Just given a lecture, to the town of B. where I was to give one that night. The weather was Indian summer and delightful. Some of the trees were late Jn shedding their leaves, and the woods were here and there still decorated with patches of scarlet, brown and deep green. On emerging from a cut through which the wood ran I saw a man walking ahead of me. 1 don't mind a companion now and then in my walks, so 1 hastened my pace and caught up with him. I found him to be about thirty years old, dressed in shabby gen teel clothes and of an intellectual cast of countenance. I addressed him. speaking of the beauty of the scenery, the autumnal glow and the invigorat ing atmosphere. He responded appre ciatively. After chatting awhile on general top ics he asked me where I was going, and my purpose to give a lecture that night...
