Every man enjoys recreation and sport of some kind. There is
nothing more conducive of real manhood than shooting. You
know that any man who is a marksman or hunter derives more
pleasure from this than from anything else. <JWe don't have
the game to hunt that our forefathers did but what we lose in
this respect is more than made up by superior equipment.
<JWe want every sportsman and every man who appreciates
good fire arms to see our stock of shot guns and rifles. If We
enjoy showing them just as much as you do seeing them.

Long Distance Talk
H. D. Williams, manager of
the Colville theater, on Saturday
received 8 call from Norman W.
Hall of San Francisco. This was
the first and only call ever taken
in the Colville office for so long a
distance. Hall called Williams
from his office in Frisco and was
plainly heard over a wire 1245
The message came via Med
ford, Portland, Walla Walla, Spo
kane to Colville. The distance
from Frisco to Portland is 775
miles. At Medford, Ore., there is
what is known as a repeater; this
delicate and complicated instru
ment is only used on very long
distanced calls, and is so con
structed as to reproduce the
sounds. The telephone repeat
ers are very rare instruments
and are only located in Chicago,
Louisville, St. Louis, Moscoga,
Oklahoma, Garden City, Kans.,
and Medford, Ore.
On Saturday Mr. Hall in his
office takes down his receiver
which automatically rings central
in Frisco. He then says, "I
want long distance." He then
hears "This is long distance."
Mr. Hall then says "I want H.
D. Williams of Colville, Wash.,
paid here." The operator re
peats "H. D. Williams, Colville,
Wash." and adds "I will call
you." She then calls Medford
for the repeater to be switched
in, and at the same time a flash
appears on the switch-board at
Portland and the operator an
swers Portland. The Frisco girl
then says "Frisco is calling Col
ville, Wash." Portland then
calls Spokane and says "Frisco
is calling Colville." Then Spo
kane calls Colville and the oper
ator answers "This is long dis
tance," when Frisco who is on
the line says "This is Frisco call
ing H. D. Williams for Norman
W. Hall. Paid here." Colville
calls Williams and Frisco calls
Hall. The two men exchange a
few words and Mr. Hall pays $4.

County Game Warden Master
son states that the impression
among sportsmen that the game
law for the protection of Chinese
pheasants has expired, is a mis
take; that these birds areprotect
ed until Oct. 1, 1913. The officer
insists on the strict compliance
with the game law not only for
the Chinese pheasants but the
Hungarian partrige and the Bob
white or quail. Mr. Masterson
further states that he finds nu
merous bevies of these birds
that have been planted through
out the county, and is of the
opinion that if they are properly
protected and given a chance to
propagate, in a few years Stevens
county will be teeming with the
finest of game birds.
