familiar with as she may at some time
in her life have a grumbling husband
who will be unable to see why his gro
cery bill should be so high. When
one stops to realize that 50 per cent of
the workingmen of this great coun
try of ours earn no more than $60
or 170 a month it can readily be
seen why the schools thruout the
United States are installing this course
and teaching the young woman how to
save in their cooking. The high
school students recently held a debate
on the question of whether domestic
science was more beneficial to the
girl than manual training was to the
boy. Both in our mind are very im
portant subjects for the coming gene
ration, but we leave our readers to
form a conclusion.
The music and drawing courses
which are in charge of Miss Sims are
■cry popular with the pupils and sam
lei of their work indicate much pro
greti in this department.
The freshman class are at present
engaged in getting out their class
journal which is to be known as the
Bugle. The book which contains
about sixty pages, will be typewritten
and contains stories, cartoons and
other matter about the school and
students compiled by themselves. The
junior class put out a book several
weeks ago and the sophomores intend
to put out such a publication at an
early date. Only about a dozen of
the books are printed which are sent
out to different schools in the county
but they are yery neatly gotten up and
are a credit to the school.
The high school is divided into two
literary societies, the Hiyu Skookum
and Philomathean clubs which render
a program every two weeks alternating,
and some good entertainments are
given on these occasions.
The last place for the newspaper
scribe to visit was the gymnasium,
which is located in the basement.
Here we find a large spacious room
about 40x70 where the basket ball
games and other athletic sports take
place. The room is well lighted and
according to Mr. Moore is the best of
its kind in the county. Shower baths,
dumb bells, indian clubs, trapeze and
practically everything that a boy or
girl would want to promote health and
vigor can be found here, and it is the
intention of the school board to make
more additions next year. Every
evening the boys congregate in the
gym to practice basketball and they
are becoming quite proficient in the
game, defeating a team of the town
boys several times in the past three
weeks. This evening the boys will
play the Cashmere high school basket
ball team at the school and it is hoped
that a good crowd will turn out to wit
ness the game as the local team is
put to considerable expense in bring
ing the visitors to this city. That the
game promises to be a good one is
evidenced by the fact that the Cash
mere team has already defeated the
Wenatchee team and if our boys win,
which is quite possible, they would in
all likelihood be champions of Chelan
Taking everything into considera
tion Leavenworth has good schools
and they are well worth advertis
ing to the people of the state and no
one man is more responsible for this
condition than Superintendent C. W.
Moore. Since coming here all his
efforts have been towards the upbuild
ing and betterment of the schools and
> this end he has devoted all his en-
w :es. But they have not been
svisted as anyone may find out for him
self by taking a trip thru this institu
tion of learning.
Mrs. Fred Drebis arrived here Wed
nesday morning from Moses Coulee
where the family has lived for the past
three years. Mr. Drebis left here
four years ago to take a position with
11. C. Peters, then promoting an irri
gation scheme in the Palouse country
and sometime afterwards took charge
of a large orchard tract in the Moses-
Coulee country. Mr. Drebis has made
quite a reputation as an expert or
chardist. He will arrive here to-day
with his household goods and some
live stock and intends to make his fu-
ture home here. Fred Drebis is a
useful citizen in any community.
Wherever he is there is something do
ing or he won't stay there long.

A wedding of unusual interest took
place last Saturday in Wenatchee when
Miss Goldie Trent, a teacher in the
public schools, became the bride of
Andrew Aston who has been employed
as assistant cashier in The Tutnwater
Savings Bank. The young couple re
turned to this city the same day and
on Monday morning left for Mr. As
tons home at Memphis, Term. The
wedding came as a complete surprise
to the many friends and relatives of
the bride and groom who were not
aware of their plans. Both of the
young people resigned their positions
and from all accounts will make their
future home in the South. The bride
who has made her home here for the
past three years with her mother and
sister. Miss Goldie Trent was one of
the city's most popular and charming
young ladies and will be greatly missed
by the younger set. Mr. Aston who
is a nephew of J. T. McDonald of this
city came here two year; ago from
Memphis where his parents reside and
since that time has been employed in
the bank from which he recently re
signed. From friends of Mr. Aston we
learn that it is quite possible that he
will return here next summer, although
his intentions are to engage in busi
ness with his father who is the owner
of a large plantation near Memphis.

RUSSIA'S BIGGEST FORGERY.
Gang Turned Out Millions of Counter-
Russia's secret police are busy trac
ing the producers of millions of coun
terfeit notes that have been passed into
circulation in Uusslu and on Russian
financial houses abroad. It Is the blg-
gest and most perplexing forgery case
they have ever tackled.
Four of the men concerned In the
trnfflo—a commercial drummer named
Dunalevsky. a merchant named Seino
nev nnd two others named Liebenthal
and Itochlin—have been captured with
skillfully forged notes to the face val
ue of nearly a quarter of a million
rubles in their possession. They have
been subjected to the Russian variety
of the third degree examination, but
hnve revealed nothing leading to the
discovery of the forgers factory.
Two men suspected of complicity
were traced In vain to France.
Enjoy Yourself and Ignore Diet Tablet,

Sir George Birdwood, officer of the
Legion of Honor, laureate of the French
academy and formerly professor of
anatomy and physiology at Bombay,

his views on how to reach a ripe old
age. His maxims are:
Don't think about your health.
Enjoy yourself as much as possible.
Ignore dietary tables.
Eat whenever you feel Inclined.
Look on the bright side of things.
Sir George Is particularly scornful
about the diet on which another con
tributor to the discussion thrives—
namely, two meals of eggs, bread and
