Agriculture in the Pend Oreille Valley Agriculture in the Fend Oreille valley is largely in the transition stage. The earh* settlers made their homes mostly in or near the natural clearings, and lacking transportation facilities for other products, were content to raise cattle that could be driven out on the hoof to market. \\ itli the coming of the railroad and steam boat tradio on the river, dairying was taken up and a ready market was f »und in Spokane for all the cream that could be produced. Then more settlers came in, and the natural clearing being taken up, the newcomers were obliged to content Ihemselves with land that lilt* early settlers considered worth- less for farming purposes. This land was on the benches above the river, and was of a yellow sandy loam nature, This bench land being covered with timber, some what slow progress has been made in clearing and adapting it to till age, but wherever a settler has persisted for a few years in clearing and tilling, his reward ...

♦ The ♦ Scrap Book He Forgot. So absentminded was a certain New England farmer that he couldn't liis mouth without making an arrant :ts3 of himself. Once he courted a young woman. His suit looked prom ising for a time. Then, with a sor rowful visage, he ceased his court ship. "Yet she seemed infatuated with you, Jabez," said a friend to whom he went t for sympathy. "She were, too," Jabez agreed. "Well, what could have been the trouble?" "Duuno," said he. "Dunno, but when l proposed she turned me down cold." ' Perhaps your proposal wasn't ar dent enough?" "Oh. it was fiery," said Jabez. "Hot as pepper. I told her she was the only .voman I'd ever loved, ever looked at, ever thought of or"— "But," said his friend, "you forgot, i Lieu, you were a widower." "Jingo," said Jabez, "so 1 did." PRIDE. You're holding your head too high; You're the slave of a foolish pride. With your face to the starry sky You would try to look dignified. But you're trampling on the flowers That around your pat...

New Addition on the Market Oct. Ist Cedar Park has proven a great success and given splendid satisfaction. The sales of Cedar Park lots and garden tracts has surpassed all previous records in Newport. THERE IS A REASON FOR THIS: People have become tired of thin gravel ground and have learned that it takes Soil to produce crops. They will no longer spend hard effort, time and money trying to grow fruit and garden stuff on unproductive ground. Rain is needed almost everywhere. Some districts have suffered greatly. Some have only half a crop. It has been a revelation to many to see how Cedar Park and the Silver Birch Farm look, depending entirely on natural subirrigation. The warm sun draws the moisture from below the surface. Therefore, the soil is always moist an inch or two from the surface. It keeps the roots of the garden truck and trees in healthy con= dition. This spring I announced that a portion of this subirrigated tract would be cleared and planted to orchard and offered in ...

Natalie of the Neighborhood House. * b, ausn y Copyrights, 190 S. by Associated Literary Press. Neighborhood House was Natalie's charity by inheritance. Her mother had founded it and had met the defi ciencies in its exchequer from time to time. Natalie was not sentimental, but her mother's pathetic anxiety about Neighborhood House during her last illness had touched the girl, whose lift had been devoted to the pursuit of pleasure. Why Natalie should turn to the Neighborhood House in her hour of hurt pride only Providence could ex plain. To her the working girls toward whose comfort, education and pleasure her checks had contributed might as well have been in Persia or China, so little did she know them. In a vague sort of way she thought of them as moles who came out of their holes at night and blinkingly, even dully, en joyed sucL pleasure as women of her kind provided for them. So when she came upon Maggie Con nolly fac? downward in the pillow of a cozy corner on that hot June Sat...

IVter Olson, a deck hand, fell from the -teainer lone, and before a lifeboat could i each him sank to a watery grave. \u one saw Olson.fall into the river, i.lll his cry as he went overboard was heard, and the steward saw him about u*ii feet astern of the boat.

In justice to you it must be so. Try to forgive me." So wrote Jack fwierson when he broke his engage ment. and Miss Abernethy pressed her while lips together scornfully and sent back the betrothal ring by registered mail in a very practical manner. Then because the long, enervating spring days had robbed her cheeks of tht-ir wonted bloom and the germs of a convenient "malaria" had dulled the brightness of her brown eyes Rose Abernethy's guardian aunt carried her bodily away Into the bracing Adiron dack region, where they lived the sim ple life of woods and inhaled vigor and peace with the sweet air. Gradually the c.vuical lines faded from Hose's face, and when the sum mer brought a greater influx of vis itors to the large hotels she found her stlt hack in that whirl of pleasure of wh...

A Narrow Escape. By MARTHA C. SANFORD. Copyrighted, 1908, by Associated Literary Press. Curtiss Rollins dashed breathlessly into the Central station just as the man behind the megaphone announced, "Incoming 3 o'clock up state express on track 14." He made his way nerv ously through the anxious crowd surg ing toward the gate and took up his position in the line behind the guard ropes. Then, serene in the consciousness that he was, after all, on time, his mind lapsed into contemplation of the busi ness problem from which he had wrenched himself but ten minutes be fore. The passengers, hurrying by from the train, made no individual impres sion upon him. He stood there as one waiting to be recognized and set in motion. Suddenly he was aware that he was being spoken to. "You don't remember me, I'm afraid, Mr. Rollins." His bewilderment as he looked at the girl was quite evident. "I'm afraid I don't," he began stum bliugly. Then in a flash his face light ed up, and he grasped her hand cor...

There are opportuni ties here for the pour man to secure a home. There are op portunities for the wealthy to double their money in a lew years by investing in a ranch or timber lands. Stevens county contains 3954 square miles -of territory, or over 2,0(X),000 acres of land. It is three times the size of the State of Rhode Island.
