DIRT MAKES DOLLARS A. M. HARRIS - Newport, Wn. ; A Simple Method. (Copyright. IHOS, by American Press Asso ciation. 1 I am a judge on the bench. Out* morning when 1 was disposing of a number of cases, any one of which would make a refined and tender heart bleed, I saw a young couple, evidently still in their teens, come into llie court room. Both looked sullen, and the girl wife especially wretched. Both were poorly dad. a consequence, 1 judged, of difficulties between them. The young husband gave every evi dence of being able to make a living for himself and his wife except for some especial obstacle. The wife had u sweet face and was very pretty. While sitting on the seat of judgment, sending hardened criminals to their punishment, 1 kept my eye on this couple. Experience told me that one had come to make some complaint of the other's treatment; but, familiar as I was with real guilt, I knew that it did not belong to either. When 1 had disposed of the bulk of my cases 1 called the...

Trade at Home If every family in this town would do all their trading with their home merchants, they would not only benefit the town, but themselves a* well. Every cent spent in ordering woods from agents who represent foreign merchants, and who never vet sold a yard, a pound or an ounce of anything one penny cheaper than your home merchants ran sell the same things to you, is so much drawn out of circulation in our town and given to outsiders. While this is a free country and people have a right to purchase where they please, yet why buy from foreign agents when you gain nothing by it? Besides, it is wrong in principle, and if generally practiced would ruin any community. Every business place in the town adds to the town's prosperity. Every business place forced to close its doors by reason of insufficient patronage, helps kill the town. Your home merchants are al ways ready to accommodate you. They always make good any mis take, while from out of town mer chants who have got your...

Finding Is Keeping. By MARTHA MTULLOCH WILLIAMS. Copyrighted. 1908, by Associated Literary Press. Lisabeth climbed into the runabout and sent Meg down the road at a clip ping pace. There was a certain like ness betwixt the girl and the mare. Botu showed blood; both were hand some in unusual fashion. Lisabeth was a Spanish blond, and her face was vivid as an autumn flower. Thus Meg's copper red coat and flaxen mane and tail brought her beautifully into the picture. "I don't see why mammy and the colonel never will pull together," Lisa beth complained to Meg when they were safe in the big road. Meg was her only confidant, her nearest com rade. "If only they ever did agree I might give tip to them," Lisabeth went on plaintively. "Since thoy won't I have to stand up for my own way. They'd hate each other forever if they thought I was partial." The big road swept in a long curve halfway round the plantation. Lisa beth caught glimpses of the white house, with tall red chimneys, nestling a...

The Road to Arcady. B> TEMPLE BAILEY: Copyrighted, 1808, by Aasoclated Literary Pre»s. "How very extraordinary!" said Christopher Kent. He sat up and sur veyed the red covered cart drawn by a very plump pony hat had stopped by the side of the road. A girl In a smart costume of tan covert climbed down from the front seat and led the pony out of the shafts, tied him with a long tether so that he might crop the juicy sod and then, returning once more to the cart, helped a somewhat fragile but smiling lady to descend. "Well, of all things!" said Christo pher helplessly. But words failed him as he watched the further proceedings of the girl in tan. From the depths of the cart she brought forth a little folding table, which she proceeded to set up in a place screened from the gaze of pass ing folk by a hedge of wild honey suckle. On the table the girl set a shining copper kettle, two cups, two plates, a small teapot and various tin boxes and little glass jars, whose gay labels pro clai...

Lllicient Service Saved Timber- According to the annual report of the supervisor of the Kaniksu National For est, recently submitted to the Forester a? Washington, the fire season on the local forest was one of the most disas trous iti recent years. A total of forty tires was discovered and extinguished l.v (he ranger force on the Kaniksu. These fires were of all sizes, from small rinss A fires that burned over only a ft-w square yards to large fires covering hundreds of acres and requiring the :i-sisstance of a large crew of men to get under control.

Historic When the Trent Affair Threatened to Cause War With Great Britain JAN. 3, 386U, was not a happy New Year's day in these dis united States. Just forty-seven years ago the curtain of night fell on the peaceful finale to the fa mous diplomatic complication known aa the Trent affair. Colonel E. D. Webster of Nebraska was at that time the private secretary of William H. Seward, Lincoln's great secretary of state. The following story of the incidents which led up to a set tlement of that most serious imbroglio came from the lips of Colonel Webster himself: When Captain Charles Wilkes of the United Stales man-of-war San Jacinto, returning from an unsuccessful chase of the privateer Sumter, intercepted the Trent, with Mason and Slldell on fcoard, he took ofT the two commis sioners and their secretaries and land ed them as prisoners of war at Fort 'Warren, in Boston harbor. John Bull went into an indignant, howling rage. He demanded the re lease of tbe prisoners and an apology. To sh...

H JVLatter of Conventions By CLARISSA MACKIE. Copyrighted, 1908, by Associated Uterary Press. The train screamed its way through the valley, grunted up the steep in cline and came to a standstill before the ramshackle little station. It paus ed while two passengers alighted, and then it hurried off, as if it was glad to get away from such an insignificant stopping place. Elsie Lansing accepted her leather bag from the taciturn station agent, who at the same time pushed a suit case toward the other traveler, a tall young man buttoned up in a gray ul ster. "Stage here for Greentop?" queried the latter, picking up his grip. "Not this day!" returned the agent grimly. "Jim lutidlaw, he seems to think Saturday's made special so's he can git a little drunker'u usual! If you ain't expected, you'll have to walk!" With which remark he slam med the station door and turned the key. "Let me see—it's twelve miles to Greentop, isn't it?" asked the stranger thoughtfully. "Twelve and a half. Straigh...

The New Year's Cake How the Wonderful Dainty Was Pre oared bv the Twelve Merry Months THE twelve Merry Months once decided to make For the New Year approaching a wonderful cake, Contributing freely each one, more or less, And sharing the pride of the final success. September, who through her acquaintance with school! Was up in the latest grammatical rules, Wrote out in a lovely Spencerian hand A recipe any one might understand. November, as usual, busy and hurried And with her election cake specially worried For fear it would burn while her mind was so flurried, From what she had left on her generous hands When her Thanksgiving cooking, with all its demands, Was finished, the milk and the spices supplied, While April the eggs was o'erjoyed to provide, All colored, of course, with indelible dyes— "My choicest," said April, with tears in her eyes. March furnished the sugar, and, though I admit 'Twas maple, still that didn't matter a bit. He mixed the cake, too, being sturdy and stout ...

Streams To Be Stocked The streams and lakes of Stevens i-ounty are to be stocked with brook irout, about 500,000 of which are to be turned loose about Feb. 1. The eggs, which were shipped from Wisconsin are now hatching out in the fish hatchery on the Little Spukone river, which is in charge ~t Superintendent S. S. Drew. The rntire expense of caring for and hatching the young trout will be horne by Stevens county. The young trout, when taken from the hatchery and set at libert} r in the streams, are about one and h half <>r two inches long. In a year the fish should be four to five inches long, and in two years ihey may attain almost any size up to 12 inches in length. The growth of the fish after they are turned out to shift for themselves varies considerably, depending upon the temperature of the water and the t'ood they are able to find. In very cold water the growth is not so rapid. The eggs for shipping are packed in moss and ice, states Mr. Drew, and the loss from failur...

i Photographing Aileen. By LITTELL M'CLUNG. Copyrighted, 1908, by Associated Literary Press. Marvin Morton, with some little ex perience at snapshotting as an incen tive. decided to go in for amateur photography on a more extensive >s.cale. Straightway he went to a fash ionable dealer and bought an expen sive camera, with plate holder attach ment. "I'll call by for It tomorrow morn ing." he told the clerk. "Please be sure to have a couple of plates in the holder, for I want to take some pic tures if the weather is fine." • I'll have the plates put in and ev erything ready for you, sir," the sales man replied. Then Marvin began to think of what he should most like to snap with his new camera. There were the new library, the new custom house, the new art gallery. But somehow or oth er none of these marble structures ap pealed to him. "There's nothing like a human sub ject when it comes to photography," be mused. The next thought followed uHturally. 'And the best of human subjects i...

Fallacy of Trading With the Mail Order Houses. There Is the same reason for building uy the trade and industries of a com munity that there is for building up the trade and industries of a nation. It goes without saying that the coun try which does most to foster the com merce, the manufacturing and the pros perity of Its own people soon outdis tances the country which neglects these things. The same thing applies to small communities. Now, that is just the principle in volved In trading with homo mer chants rather than with distant mail order houses. To trade with the home merchant helps home commerce and home Industry. To send money to the distant mail order house helps that re mote concern, but depletes the commu nity from which the money Is sent. Every dollar taken out of a community makes everybody In the community that mu...
