TO OPEN NEW DISTRICT Bead Lake Agricultural Land to Be Put on the Market. The Tract Mas Great Possibilities During the past few yearn there has been an influx of settlers in the Pend d'Oreille river valley, and as a result there is today only a limited amount of land that is subject to homestead entry.

In the Pend d'Oreille river valley is found some of the finest and and most productive agricultural land in the northwest. There is at present a demand for five and ten acre tracts.

Fruit and F lowers ORCHARD PRACTICE. individual Trees Should Be Studied Before Pruning. Pruning is a broad subject and one that is not much understood by most people. Usually when a man buys trees he thinks he must be always pruning them, but such is not the case. Pruning is to assist nature and must be done with certain definite ob jects in view—namely, to promote growth, r> (luce fruit spurs, to re tard excessive growth and to form the tree the desired shape. There is a struggle for light, heat and air amoni? Hie individual branches or twigs of a tree which is commonly tt'KONG PRUNING. [This kind of work is never, permissible.

Constitutional Rights. The rights of the people of New port are at stake. Who will con serve her interest in the proceed ings of the Idaho & Washington Northern, endeavoring to secure a perpetual and irrevocable fran chise? Article One, section 8 of the Constitution of the State of Wash ington, under the heading "Dec laration of Rights," reads thus: ''No law granting irrevocably any privilege, franchise or immunity shall be passed by the legislature." Are the powers and authority of the town council of the town of Newport greater and far more ex tensive than those of the legisla ture? No man of reason; with the rights of the people of the town, at heart, would dare be heard to say that the council's powers are supreme over those of the legislature, and that it may give away or barter the use and occupation of the streets forever. An act of the Washington legis lature, passed Feb. 14, 1905, sec tion 7054, Pierce's Code, limits the life of railroads and other corpora tions to fift...

) Passing the ( [Original.) Boys from the time they are old enough to talk and walk go through rertaiD periods. There are the toy age, the age of sleds and skates and the ball age. At fourteen to fifteen most boys begin to consider costume, com mencing with their cravats. This in terest develops till at seventeen all their clothes must be especially to their liking. At this time. too. they usually begin to take notice of girls. I have always considered that youog men are made or marred by the mar riage they make.
