THE VALLEY CHARM.
None escape it. It cannot be de
scribed bat it holds those who have
once lived heie with a thousand si
lent threads that even a Gulliver
could not break. Many surrender
with pleasure to the enchantment and
ask no better fate. Some few resist
and go away, but sooner or later, tbe
virus works, the valley spirit calls
and they can but obey. Their familiar
faces are seen again on the streets and
Wenatchee has won a permanent and
most enthusiastic citizen. Instances
are many of people leaving here in ut
ter disgust and returning with the
most hearty pleasure.
It is a good plan for any one to
whom the far off pastures look green
to take a trip and find that 'twas dis
tance lent enchantment to the scen a ,
and that after all home is best.
Wenatchee and the valley never look
the same again to those wbo go and
return, the charm is doubled by the
comparison, its advantages are brought
out strongly and perfect content is the
state of mind of the wanderer. Be
fore, he might have thought that the
valley was a good place, but now he
knows that its tbe best.
A prosperous, happy, oontented
community is being built up beie.
Many things lead to this, the material
things the natural riches of the land
and the location, but not tbe least
among the elements that bring it to
pass is this nameless indefinable at
traction that holds every one who
oomes within its inflaencees. Here
will be built up a great city a wealthy
people, but best of all, here will be de
veloped sturdy manhood, lovely wom
anhood, characters that will have
their influence on the state, a people
that will fight for tbe pure and the
right, for home and nattive land.
SIGN YOUR NAME.
It is a little thiog to ask. Will yon
help? No one questions fcr a moment
that we need our streets designated
with proper sigßs, our houses located
by number. If that is your belief,
sign your name to the petition to the
oity oouncil, asking them to grant us
relief from the intolerale condition of
affairs as they now exist.
Sign your name, cot out the peti
tion, send or bring it to the Daily
World office at once. Get busy! Do
it now. *
The enormous number of 1,618,000
grain bags have already been ordered
from the jute mills at the state peni
tentiary, and orders are still coming
in for large quantities. At the pres
ent rate of manufacture, it will take
until September to make enough sacks
to supply the present orders.
No sorer criterion could be fonnd
for predicting a large grain cron this
year. It represents what the major
ity of the farmes are expeoting, so
that when unusually large orders are
turned in, phenomenal yields may be
looked for.—Walla Walla Union.
If the money output of our farms
and orohaids were golden grains

of a miner, ten times t«n thousand
men would start from town and h m

The Court of "Judge Lynch."
Lynching at the present time is pe
culiar to the United States. In the
older countries of Europe, where the
government is well organ iz»d and jus
tice in a measure sure, the court of
"Judge Lynch" is unknown, although
in parts of Rm da horse thieves are
summarily dealt with by the peasants.
The probable origin of lynch law is
attributed by Professor Cutler of
Wellesley college in a recent history of
"this rude American Justice" to cus
toms imported from Ireland. He notes
that the summary punishment for
crimes without the intervention of
judge and jury was first generally
practiced in America by Scotch-Irish
settlers, who instituted in their new
homes the means of maintaining order
and good behavior with which they
were familiar in the old country.
Professor Cutler also considers the
"Yehmic courts," or vigilant commit
tees, of ancient Germany and the "Lyd
ford law" in a section of England,
whereby they "first hanged a man and
then indicted him." He shows by
documents and letters that punishment
by flogging or ducking or tarring and
feathering or riding on a rail, with a
warning to quit the neighborhood, was
common among tories and loyalists
during tbe Revolutionary war. Orig
inally lynching did not end in death.
Its name appears to have been de
rived from Charles Lynch of Bedford
county, Va., who, without a judicial
commission, held in the latter part of
the eighteenth century a court for dis
pensing summary justice. The name
is now applied indiscriminately to all
manner of summary punishment with
out legal process.
The author states that there never
was a time, from the Revolution down
to the civil war, when lynching was
not availed of in various parts of the
country where lv the absence of laws
and courts it appeared, necessary as a
means of protection. In times of po
litical and social excitement lynchiug
has most frequently resorted to,
and special laws on the subject have
proved of little avail. It is claimed by
conservative spokesmen' of the south
that the evil is righting itself there as
rapidly as can reasonably be expected
and that it is likely to be completely
suppressed within tbe next twenty
Spaniards For Cuban Cane Fields.
Cuba's wholesale importation of
Spaniards from the old country has no
political significance, according to the
agriculturist authorities of the island,
but is wholly due to the scarcity of la
borers for the sugar plantations. Dur
ing the season now ending much of the
cane was lost for lack of field hands
to attend to it. Flanters have become
anxious about next season aud have
urged the government to pass laws cal
culated to encourage immigration.
Workmen from the northern sections
of Spain are sought by the Cuban
planters because they are best adapt
ed for the climate. They stand the
work and are more law abiding and
peaceful than immigrants from other
lands. They come empty handed and
are content to toil and take humble
fare. Recently large proprietors have
been enlarging and improving their es
tates, and increased production brings
on a serious labor problem, with
threats of a famine, unless workmen
are speedily imported.
Persons wearing dirty clothes are
warned by a sign at the gate to keep
out of the botanical gardens at Syd
ney, Australia. "We don't want a la
boring man to come here in his work
ing clothes," a keeper explains. "We
want him to go home and put on clean
clothes and bring his family here look
ing neat and clean and have a good
time. That makes the surroundings
more cheerful for everybody concern
ed." Candidly the "unwashed" man
would tind himself very much out of
place and decidedly uncomfortable in
a holiday crowd.
A writer in the current number of
tbe Engineering Magazine suggests
that the Niagara cataract may be pre
served and yet allow tbe river to be
utilized by developing tbe water power
of the whirlpool rapids below the falls.
From the foot of the cataract, this
writer says, to Lewiston, five miles
downstream, the river descends 100
feet and develops 2,500,000 horsepower,
which would provide all the energy
that could be utilized within 300 miles
of the falls In tbe next half century at
General Joe W T heeler denies that he
intends to take a commission in tbe
czar's army in Manchuria. This dis
play of self restraint on the part of an
American who has made good use of
three commissions already should be
glad tidings for Marshal Oyama.
Garrett P. Serviss, the popular sci
ence writer, says that the coming
eclipse of the sun is a greater event
than the war. Up in Russia some folks
think that the war ls the biggest
eclipse that ever happened.
Some one has discovered that cor
sets were worn in the year 1000 TJ. C.

Catting- a~ Hailstorm.
During a severe hailstorm in tbe
Himalayas our native gardener brought
out a hatchet and placed it edge up
ward in the garden to "cut the storm,"
as he said. Catlin, in his "North Amer
ican Indians," describes a ceremony of
the Mandan Indians in which hatchets
and edged tools are sacrificed to the
"spirits of the waters" to avert a recur
rence of the great deluge, of which the
tribe has the tradition. — Notes and

"I have always allowed my w4fe to

"What does she wish generally?"
"Well, the last fifteen times sbo has
