THE COLFAX GAZETTE ISSUED EVERY FRIDAY. Each Succeeding Day of the Cash System brings more forcibly to mind the idea of force of habit. Have you ever noticed that when the ther mometer registers 101 degrees in July, a party of persons entering a room gather instinctively around the fireplace? Or when you have no butter on the table, how often the force of habit will cause you to reach for butter? Every clay in the week and every hour in the day finds men and women in Hinchliff's C. O. D. Store who have been under the force of habit of paying Credit prices for goods— throwing down dollars where cents buy the same articles under the C. O. D. system. Only the other day this was forcibly illustrated when two prominent citizens, one a business man, the other a newspaper man as usual(i 1) loaded with "dough," each ordering goods. The force of our prices astonished them so that it forced them to remark, "There is a noticeable difference between Cash and Credit buying." HINCHLIFF'B C. O. D....

These are days of anxiety for the ice m"ii and the lumbermen. The former is wondering if he will have a crop to harvest, and the latter if he will have to grease the mads to slide his logs to water. It is said that when the Whitman county democrats meet in solemn con vention they propose to rival in brevity the short populist platform of "'direct legislation."' There are to be but two worde—"oppose everything." That's enough...

Many and varied are the classes and con iiti.wiH of men, and the pedagogical field seems no less varied than others. However, if we consider "shop taik" we must begin to talk shop. We sometimes hear the charge that ten hers are too much given to shop talk. The charge may or may not be true lut if the vocation of the educator is not ;i worthy one, or the educator is un worthy the vocation, then it is time to cry, 'Away with shop talk."
