George Coulter—Pioneer [The following eulogy on George Coulter is from the pen of John B. Slater, historian for the Stevens County Pioneer Society, and is a fitting tribute to the life and work of the pioneer who has aided in the upbuilding of this great western country.] In the death of George Coulter, which occurred at his home about two miles east of Rice, last Sat urday, Stevens county has lost one of its most sub stantial citizens, and a man whose real worth was not fully appreciated until he had bid his final adieu to 76 years of industry in this life. The son of Robert and Elizabeth (McVeaty) Coulter, he was born in the North of Ireland, Feb. 13, 1832. Two years later he came with his parents to New York, and later came to Stark county, Ohio, where they resided for three years, and in 1837 finally settled at the spot now occupied by Rockford, 111. It was here that George grew to manhood. His education was gathered from the wilds of the frontier, peopled mostly by Indians, and...

Colville Grocery Co. Since the new law requiring the state land commissioner to furnish the county auditor of all the counties in the state with copies of the circular announce ments of sale of state lands, it seems the county auditors have been paying the express charges upon the packages sent out by the state land commission er. A few days ago County Auditor F. A. Savage called the attention of the state land commission to the fact that he had been advised by Prosecuting Attorney Rochford that the express charge was properly an expense of the state, whereupo...

The Taft contingent of the "party of prosperity" is busily engaged in assuring the republicans that the Roosevelt machine is in the lead in national politics, and all subservient newspapers show signs of dictated editorial and news matter. The Chi cago convention will be composed of 978 delegates, of whom 966 will come from the 46 states and 12 from the six territories. To nominate, 490 votes thus are necessary. Dividing the country geo graphically it appears that 188 of these delegates come from the 17 states of the free territory west of the Mississippi river; from the six middle wes tern states, 198; from the four middle eastern statrs, 176; from the six New England states, 82; from the three border states of Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland, 78, and from the 11 southern states, 234 Taft is claimed to have the practically unan imous support of the states west of the Mississippi river; the support of the three border states of Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland; Ohio, Michigan and Wes...

1908's Firsft Important Sale of 1908 Shirt Waists at Prices that will Influence Early Buying SHREWD buyers purchase when stocks are new and assortments full, even if the temperature is a little lower or higher than it normally should be. Believing this, we launched this week a sale of 1908 Lingerie Waists at prices new to Colville—a sale without peer or parallel in the history of waist retailing—a sale that would be utterly impossible without the co-operation of three friendly manufacturers who were only too glad to keep their large force at work dur ing the panicky months of November and December, and meet living expenses. Hundreds of waists, and every one is as fresh as a snowflake. Fine in fabric, fit and fin ish. Dainty to look at, "comfy" to wear, even now, with the addition of an inside slip.
