Town and County
The subject of this sketch whs born
in Warren county, lowa, in 1*73. He
received his education in the public
schools of Blue Bpringl and Wymore,
Nebraska. He was a student in the
sta'-e normal school at Lincoln, Neb.,
and also of the Ifebraakß University.
He la a jyratl uate of the state normal
school at Chenv, Wash. Mr. Riste
taught school at Odell, Neb., and re
moved to this state in 181)9. He has
* also taught at Medical Lake and Cheny,
Wash. He was principal of the We
natchee school for two years, and this
year was employed by the school board
as superintendent of the Weuatchee
schools, which embrace three primary
and grammar schools and a high school
Mr.Uiste is comparatively a young
* DM, He has made school work his
life sludy, and that he is making a suc
cess of it is indicated by his being em
ployed for the third year by the Wenat
chee board. Ho is a strict disciplinari
an but is very popular with the schol
ars of all the schools.
The writer was a patron of his school |
for two years and says what he knows
to 1m true.
If Mr. Riste lives he will in due time
take rank with the ablest and most suc
cessful educators in the state. No bet
ter selection could possibly have been ■
made for superintendent of the common j
schools of Chelan county. It will be
impossible for Mr. Riste to make a can
vass pf the county aud become acquain
ted with the voters as his time is all
taken up with school work, but tho edi
tor of the Echo unreservedly assures
every reader that no more worthy, cap
able and in every way proper man could
have been named for superintendent of
the public schools of this county than
Almost a Blaze
What would have ended in a disas
trous tire had it not been discovered
just yi timejoccured in the frame build
ing occupied by George Blocksedge as
a news anil confectionary store on Front
street last Friday morning about two
o'clock. The fire had started in the
ceiling above the rear rooru and was
just getting under good headway when
it was discovered by some one who was
passing in the rear of the building who
called Lee McMontague, who isemploy
ed about the place. Willi a few buck
ets of water which happened to be close
by, Lee put the tire out. The fire did
not start near a flue and it is somewhat
of a mystery how it got started. A
bunch of those sulphur matches which
many paople use was found about half
burned up in the ceiling. Whether
they were placed there by design or
whether they were carried there by
mice or rats is not known, bnt the fact
of the tire occur ng so far from a flue or
stove pipe is v little ctrange, to say the
Had the fire ever gotten started there
is no telling where it would have stop
lied. At least six or eight business
houses would have been consumed.This
ought to serve as a warning that the
people of this town should organize for
I lire protection.
' We will soon have an abundance of
wa'er but we have taken no steps to
make a proper and effective use of it.
Without hose and without some kind
of organization we will still be at a dis
advantage in lighting fire-. It would
seem with the recollection of the late
disastrous consequences of fires, large
ly on account of no protection and
no organization, that the. citizens of
this town would be prompt to act in
this matter, an act together.
People will soon have hot fires, many
of them burning all night, and thai
there will be tires is almost certain.
We expect any night to be aroused by j
the cry of fire. Will we <lo as we have j
always done heretofore, just stand off
and watch it burn, or will we do some
thing to put out the flies and stop the
It is un to the property owners.
Mr. Charles Albright sold bis city
property Monday to Mr. Gottlcib
K;iiser, an old farmer for many yeai s
rt-lttlltg south of town, who with his
wifti expects to spend the remaining
years of his life a', ease in the city.
While it is not ilertnilely determined it
is probable that the new owner will
move int) town before winter. Mr. Al

John A. Gellatly, of Wenatchee, ac
comranied Mr. Mead to this place last
Tuesday and circulated among, ami got
acquainted with a number of new peo
ple as well as renewed hit acquaintance
with many old friends. Mr. Gellatly"s
knowledge of the duties of auditor and
qualifications and fitness for the oHice
makes him a strong candidate on the
republican ticket. During his four
years residence in the county he has
made many friends by his uniformally
courteous treatment of everybody who
has had to transact business with him.
If he is not elected auditor of Chelan
county for the next two years it will
be because republicans are not repub

A party of some thirty-five ladies and
gentlemen went \ip the canyon last
Sunday to enjoy the delightfuly cool
fall weather we are having these days
and to get a last look at the ever chang

The ladies of the party had provided a
lunch, and after rambling around enjoy
ing tho scenery, which at this time of
the year is not excelled anywhere in
the state, thoroughly wearied and with
a keen appetite the party sat down to a
most bountiful lunch, served in regular
banquet style, on a table provided by
mother earth. As one young lady ex
pressed it, "the lunch dissappeared
like 'due* before tho sun."' The gentle
men present voted their thanks to th>
ladies for the lunch and declared it was
the greatest and best they had over sat
