THE LYNDEN TRIBUNE
MEAD SHOUTER3 MEET
Boosters Uproariously Cheer
Remarks of Dirtin<ruished
Sather Becomes Humorous and Then
■Talks on the Corroborative Evi
The Taf t-Mead Club held a pub
lic meeting at Jamsieson's Hall
Saturday evening—The Social
ists a meeting on the street and
it seems the latter had all the
crowd. However there may
have been a hundred people at
the big pow wow in the Hall.
Three big guns were brought up
from Bellingham in automobiles
and fired shot and shell for a
bouttwo hours into the ranks of
the good natured Mcßride peo
pie, who had turne 1 out for char
ity's sake in order that the Mead
bunch might have a target to
shoot at, a half a dozen powder
monkies of the 'machine" stood
by and cheered wildly every time
a gun went off.
Judge "DeMattos lamented the
fact that he couldn't buy a '60
cent picture of Senator Ankeny
for his private office as he had
done of all his other noble friends.
Mr. J. J. Donovan admitted
that he does not believe in pro
hibition. Udoubtedly a "reason
able' ' local option law such as
his colleages in Bellingham con
templated when they introduced
the plamc at the Bellingham and
Spokane Conventions and simlar
to the local option bill that Gov.
Mcßride vetoed, would suit the
gentleman exactly. The bill Mc
Bride vetoed was* so reasonable
that the saloon man had the peo
pie and the government right by
the throat where he could choke
them every time they "hollered".
Attorney C. A. Sather told a
few funny stories and then
launched into a long discourse
on the "corroborative evidence"
law which is as old as the hills.
A similar law has been in force
in many of the eastern states
for years and tried to make
out that it was such a great feat
for the "machine" to accomplish
for the people. The real truth
is, as everyone knows, tbntthe
men, who orginated the la t in
this State, deserve no ere ii for
their good work, for they uid it
with an evil purpose in view.
The Lynden department s-t >re has
Made arrangements to have an im

those who wish to view the heavenly

Mr. A. L. Melander. the entomolo
gist of the experiment station at Pull
man was here Tuesday and Wednesday
seeking information about a new apple
boring insect. This insect makes its
appearance about picking time as a
little green worm about one half of
an inch long w hicb feeds on the flesh of
the apple. This insect has been sent
to the exper'ment station each year
for the last four or five years, but, in
each case it has come from Whatcom
county. When the worms were kept
in jars they developed in the spring
into a little brownish wasp which is
known as the saw-fly. The new pest is
remarkable in its feeding habits, for
all the other saw-flies whose habits are
known feed on leaves, and none are
known to attack fruit. Mr. Melander
is anxious to find out how prevalent
the insect is and would like any of our
readers who have had any experience
with the insect to write to him at Pull
A Grand Success.
The Lynden Dramatic company,s
Play "Above the Clouds," was a grand
success The citizens of Lynden, who
listened to the repetition of the delight
ful pastorial drama "Above the Clouds"
by the Lynden Dramatic company last
Thursday evening at Jamieson's hail
went home with a world of cares ro'led
off their shoulders.
It was all ''so romantic', from start
to finish that a person with a nine days
toothache and addicted to chronic dys
pepsia would have had to laugh and
weep with the crowdor leavethe room.
We hope to have the pleasure of
hearing another play in the near fu
ture by the same company of players.

themselves some of the great things
that are being done there.
