The dance given by the White
Lake Grange in their hall last
week Thursday night was a social
event long to be remembered by
all present. The music furnished
by Fontaine's five piece orchestra
was highly appreciated by the
fifty couples that "tipped the
light fantastic" on the waxed
and polished floor till the clock
struck three. Four loads from
Colville were among the dancers,
and among the first to enjoy the
fine chicken supper served by the
ladies of the grange at midnight.
The same management with the
same orchestra will give another
dance Jan. 23, and it is believed
that many more of the Colville
dancers will avail themselves of
an opportunity for a fine sleigh
ride a good dance and a big feed
on this occasion.
The new firm, Stenger & Rod
gers, went to Spokane on Tues
day to purchase stock, fixtures
and equipment for their new

Epworth League and the young
people, and will be followed by
the public installation of the newly
elected League officers. Special

Fred." Penyk, a native of
Russia and well known among
lumbermen, died at the county
hospital last week at the age of
28 years. Penyk had long been
a sufferer from goiter.
The box of cigars that was
given as a prize by James Petty
for the rooster with the longest
spurs at the recent poultry show
was awarded to an old bantum,
the property of W. W. Campbell.
In looking up the history of the
bird Petty found that it was one
that he had owned five years ago
which had been stolen, traded,
bought and sold so many times
that a clear abstract of title could
not be made.
The firemen's annual banquet
to be held at the Hotel Colviile
next Monday promises to be one
of the most elaborate affairs of
the kind ever given in the city.
Invitations have been extended
to all members of the depart
ment, the incoming and retiring
members of the city council, the
governing board of the chamber
of commerce, and to several busi
ness men who have heretofore
shown their appreciation to the
department for services rendered.
Billy Neal the hearse driver,
with his fine span of dapple grays
hitched to a sleigh on Monday
gave a score of boys and girls a
merry ride. Some say there was
a block long of hand sleds trail

B. F. Goodman, who recently
returned from a trip to Nebraska
and Illinois, where he visited sis

good, and an apparent unanimity
of expression favoring Wilson's
election and his speeches and
actions since election.
Atty. J. A. Rochford left Thurs
day for Ashland, Ore., where he
went to personally take some im
portant depositions for a court
case which he is handling.
The Qam Club, which held its
first meeting at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. F. B. Goetter two weeks
ago, was entertained Monday
night at the home of Judge and
Mrs. W. H. Jackson. Five hun
dred was played each evening,
and dainty luncheons were served
by each hostess. The members
of the Qam Club are Mesdames
and Messrs F. B. Goetter, W. H.
Jackson, L. B. Harvey, R. A.
Thayer, W. C. Vilwock, B. W.
Emery, J. C. Harrigan, D. H.
Carey, A. B. Cook, Geo. Thomas.
The origin and meaning of the
word Qam has not been publicly
announced. Some say it comes
from the Sanscrit word "tcqam,"
meaning an evening of enjoy
ment. Others allege that it
means nothing more than "quit
at midnight" or "quite a mix
ture" or some other abbreviation.
At any rate, the next meeting
will consist of an oyster supper
at the Jackson ranch home west
of the city.

Many complaints have been
heard during the past three weeks
on account of the wholesale busi
ness being done by local chicken
thieves. Some of those who have
been visited by these midnight
pilferers are: Mrs. L. B. Hanna,
who a few weeks ago had a pen
of 100 fine birds, now has less
than two dozen. Dr. W. F. Dif
fenbacher with a coop of 50
thoroughbreds has a half dozen
left. A widow living on north
Main street last week lost 35
from her henhouse. Mr. Palmer
the same night lost three dozen.
J. H. LasswelFs coops have re
cently been visited. Mrs. M. A.
Lynch lost a half dozen fine hens.
John Leighton recently found the
heads of eight of his thorough
bred buff orpingtons lying on the
floor of the hen house. Cal
Hughes is short 15 birds. There
are others who claim to have
missed from two to a half dozen
birds, while a few state that as
yet their coops have not been vis
ited. It is evident that if the
present onslaught on chickens
continues many of the fanciers
will be put out of business. Some
of those who have had their stock
of poultry depleted by these petty
thieves, openly state that the
next man or boy who attempts
to carry another bag of chickens
from their coops, will also carry
at least one load of shot along
with the birds. Officers state
that they have a clue as to who
some of these poultry fiends are,
but as yet are not able to secure
sufficient evidence for a convic
Samuel McDowell, a well
known farmer living east of town,
was operated on at the Colville
sanitarium on Wednesday.
Although it will be nearly four
months before baseball will be
played in Colville, the manage
ment and many of the local fans
are now looking up material for
the coming season. Dave Skeels
has agreed to pitch for the Col
villes during the 1913 season, and
states that by April 15 he will be
in good form. Charles Snapp will
be in the lineup. An eastern
leaguer by the name of Snoddy
who has a good record and now
living near town wants a place
on the team, and an effort is be
ing made to have Duckworth on
the team. He is anxious to play
with the Colville aggregation.
With Graham, Laird, Trembley
and Hedlund it is evident that
the local fans will see a faster
team during the coming season
than ever together on the Colville
A Hero In A Light House.
For years J. S. Donahue, So.
Haven, Mich., a civil war captain,
as lighthousekeeper, averted aw
ful wrecks, but a queer fact is,
he might have been a wreck him
self, if Electric Bitters had not
prevented. ' 'They cured me of
kidney trouble and chills, after
I had taken other so called cures
for years, without benefit and
they also improved my sight.

A Girl's Wild Midnight Ride.
To warn people of a fearful
forest fire in the Catskills a young
girl rode horseback at midnight
and saved many lives. Her deed
was glorious but lives are often
saved by Dr. King's New Dis
covery in curing lung trouble,
coughs and colds, which might
have ended in consumption or
pneumonia. "It cured me of a
dreadful cough and lung dis
ease," writes W. R. Patterson,
Wellington, Tex., "after four in
our family had died with con
sumption, and I gained 87
pounds." Nothing so sure and
safe for all throat and lung
troubles. Price 50c and $1.00.
