County Assessor Chester R. Wiley
has returned from Olympia where
he appeared before the state board
of equalization on behalf of Stevens
county. No decisions have been giv
en out by the board. Mr. Wiley
states that hearings were given each
county in the state that felt that
they had a grievance, and most
counties sent a representative to
plead for them before the board.
Public service corporations also have
the right to appear and did so. It
is impossible for Mr. Wiley to state
at this time what, if anything, will
be granted Stevens county. All the
others are asking the same favors
as Stevens county and the board has
a big problem before it. Mr.
Wiley feels, however, that Stevens
county has presented a clear case,
and that it has merit and will re
ceive careful consideration. The
state board of equalization is com
posed of the governor, state treas
urer and state auditor. The state
supervisor of taxation is the secre
tary of the board.

The recent improvement of the Hun

which makes the distance from Hun

reason for the change.
One hundrad and sixteen pupils

Spokane county is to have its own
fish hatchery and game farm. The
county game and fish commission
has completed a deal for the pur
chase of 48 acres of ground north
west of Spokane on which a hatch
ery and game farm will be placed.
The property is one and one-half
miles west of Mead, and one-half
mile west of' the Deadman creek
trestle on the Pend Oreille highway.
Three springs flow on the property
giving 500 to 700 gallons of water
per minute. A supply of 300 gal
lons per minute is ample for hatch
ery purposes. In the past it has
been necessary for the Spokane
county game and fish commission
to depend on the state hatcheries
for fish fry to be planted in the
waters of the county and for game
birds and eggs, except in some in
stances when fry and young birds
were purchased from distant points.

LOSS OF WEIGHT ONE
SIGN OF TUBERCULOSIS
(By Stevens County Nurse)
A few things worth knowing about
This disease, known also as phthi
sis, is caused by a living plant .or
germ, called the "bacillus tuberculo
sis," which multiplies with great
rapidity in the living tissues of ani
Outside of the human body, the
germ may live in warm, moist, dark
places for a long time. By direct
sunlight the germ is killed in a few
hours, in a few days in ordinary day
light, and immediately by boiling
water. If the germ finds its way
into the lungs, it becomes attached
and rapidly increases in number. A
strong, healthy person will resist the
germs, but an individual who is weak
will not ordinarily repel them; the
germs will rapidly multiply until the
lungs are consumed and the person
dies. The germ generally obtains
entrance to the body through the
mouth and nose and most frequently
lodges in the air passages of the
lungs, It may, however, get into the
glands of the neck, attack the throat,
the bowels, the kidneys, the brain,
or any other organ of the body, as
well as the bones or the joints.
Nearly everybody at some period of
his life breathes in the living germs
of the disease, but owing to the pow
er of resistance of a healthy body,
the germs are not able to multiply.
In the early stages of the disease
the germ is found in small numbers
in the sputum, in larger numbers as
the disease progresses and in count
less millions in the later stages.
Unless the sputum is destroyed by
burning or by disinfectants, it may
become the most common method of
carrying tuberculosis to other indi

for some time and not know it, or
suspect it. An examination of the

or longer, loss of weight, slight

disease, and as such a preventable
