Notice has been given by the Great-
Northern railway that the bridge
and right of way between Northport
and Rossland are offered to the state
highway depai-tment. This line of
road has had all operation discontin
ued, the discontinuance of smelting
operations at Rossland making the
road unprofitable. The railway
bridge is largely of steel, but it is
said that it is in need of repairs.
This is the only bridge over the Co
lumbia for many miles and is really
needed by the highway department.
At present the ferry at Northport
leads to a very poor country road
which touches the British Columbia
line at Paterson, where the railroad
nearly joins the highway.
The year 1921 has witnessed a
trifle more of the road completed
between Colville and Spokane. Eight
miles between Chewelah and Addy
have been surfaced and nine miles
of grading has been done between
Addy and Arden, where surfacing
will be done next year. The Inland
Empire highway between Spokane
and the British Columbia line is the
only really important unfinished
piece of road work in the state, and
it has dragged from year to year
in an uncompleted shape. By next
fall it is confidently hoped that the
road between Colville and Spokane
will be completed.
The annual midwinter sale and
banquet of the Stevens County Live
stock Association are to be held in
Chewelah in February, the associa
tion having accepted the invitation
of the Chewelah chamber of com
merce to meet this year at Che
welah. This annual event has be
come a recognized feature of the life
of the association, and this year will
undoubtedly attract a large atten
dance from over the county.
Miss Delores Rumsey and Guss
Toulou, both of Covada, were united
in marriage Tuesday at 1 p. m. by
the Rev. G. E. Whitten at the M. E.
parsonage. Witnesses were the
bride's brother R. W. Rumsey of Co
vada, and Charles Whitten. The
wedded couple will reside at Covada
where the groom is a farmer.
With the approach of the period
for filing income tax returns, Jan
uary 1 to March 15, taxpayers are
advised to lose no time in the com
pilation of their accounts for the
year 1921. A new and important
provision of the Revenue Act of 1921
is that every person whose gross
income for 1921 was $5,000 or over
shall file a return, regardless of the
amount of net income upon which
the tax is assessed. Returns are re
quired of every single person whose
net income was $1,000 or over and
every married person living with
husband or wife whose net income
was $2,000 or over. Widows and
widowers and persons separated or
divorced from husband or wife, are
regarded as single persons. Net in
come is gross income, less certain
deductions for business expenses,
losses, taxes, etc. Gross incomes in
clude practically all income received
by the taxpayer during the year; in
the case of the wage earner, sal
aries, wages, bonuses and commis
sions; in the case of professional
men, all amounts received for pro
fessional services; in the cases of
farmers all profits from the sale of
farm products, and rental or sale of

Relative to the high percentage of
normal-trained teachers in Stevens
county, President N. D. Showalter
"The remarkably high percentage
of teachers in Stevens county who
have had normal school training
must be accepted as evidence that
the standards of the teaching pro
fession are being raised all the
while; that teachers are showing a
greater enthusiasm in their work;
that the teachers believe they owe
it to the tax paying public to dem
onstrate that good salaries will in
sure a higher type of teaching abil
ity. It is gratifying to us to know
that our own institution is serving
the educational needs of Stevens
county so well. The idea 1, toward
which we are w,*ing is: Every
teacher a normal school graduate."
