ROOSTERS AND HENS
Five Display ol'Palonsp Poultry
at the Show.
Four Hundied His'i Bred Birds On
Exhibition— List of the
Prise Winners.
The second annual poultry show of the
Whitman County Poultry ami Pet .Stock Aa-
Bociotion opened Wednesday in the Davia
building with a splendid display of 400 birds,
of 4S breeds, a much larger and tiner exhibit
than that of last year, It is being well patron
ized and the hue fowls have opened the eyea
of many who have not had an opportunity to
know the status of the poultry industry of
Whitman county. Judge Theo. Hewis of
Trenton, Mo.,iwith the highest reputation in
the United States aa a poultry expert, judged
the birds on the opening day and left at once
for Chicago to meet a prea-ing businesa en
gagement. Tho worea given show that no
part of the United Staten has finer fowls than
the fanciers of the Palouse, and Judge Hewes
nays there is no reason to send east, either for
birds or men to judge them, as Washington
has men as competent as any in the world to
pans upon them.
The Golfax band tarnishes music each even
ing. The room ia splendidly arranged, com
fortable and lighted by electricity- Judge
Hewes complimented the management highly
on this, and said it waa one of the best ar
ranged shows lie had seen.

Treasurer Windus, within the past few
days, has sent out notification to personal
property tax payers that interest will attach
after 30 days from notice. This is done mere
ly to comply with the new law, which de

urer to enforce payment of personal taxes un
til after June 1, but he has no option in the
matter of attaching interest.
Taxes of 1899 became clue and collectible

Woman and a Horsewhip.
Mrs. Bertha Lambert of Winona was
on trial in Justice Kirkland's court as
The Gazette went to press for whipping

naughtiness and alleged bad actions of
school boys and girls. Incidentally
Mrs. Lambert accuses Wilson of drag
ging her character in the mire through
talk and assaulted him. Wilson denies
having done anything of the kind, and
the town is split in factions over the
matter.

they were mulcted for $1.50 each and costs.
Saturday the Chinaman was passingj the
crowd with a bundle of laundry. The boys
began snowballing him, and when he put
down his bundle to protect himself one of
them hit him in the mouth with a heavy piece
of bone, badly injuring him.

CONCUSSION OP THE BRAIN.
J. C. Andrews Badly Hurt By a
Frightened Horse.
John C. Andrews, who resides five
miles south of Pampa, was dangerously
injured by a frightened horse January
2-'?, Buffering concussion of the brain,
from which, however, he is now recover
ing. On the afternoon of that day Mr.
Audrews left Colfax at 2 o'clock to drive
to his home, 43 miles, with a horse and
cart. At last accounts he had not re
covered sufficiently to enable him to
give an account of the accident. Wednes
day morning he staggered up to the
home of Mr. Scott on Union flat, acting
very queerly. He was a stranger to the
family and was on the point of being
ordered away for a tramp when it was
noticed something was wrong with him
and he was taken in and cared for.
I'renently the boys of the family went
out into the road and found his cart
and some packages with his name and
address upon them. A messenger was
sent to La Crosse, where it was learned
who he was and where he lived and the
injured man was sent home. It is not
known how he was hurt, but the Scotts
say their dogfl weie heard to charge in
to the road about 11 o'clock at night,
and it is supposed they frightened his
horse.
Dr. Boswell ivas called Wednesday and
remained continuously with him until
Saturday, so dangerous was his condi
tion It was while at his bedside that
Dr. Boswell heard the shot fired- which
killed George Boland, the murder taking
place within 200 yards of the house.

A Breezy Night.
Monday night wae about as breezy a
one as the Palouse country is accus
tomed to, though the fitful gusts would
be classed as zephyrs only in a windy
region. No damage was done about
Colfax except to overturn a few half
fallen outbuildings and rip loose shingles
off a few uncared for roofs. The lat
ter happened to the roof of the grand
stand at the fair grounds and made
several large sized holes in the roof. At
Spokane the gale increased in speed and
reached a gait of 41 miles an hour.
Wires in all directions out of the city
went down before it by 2 o'clock in the
morning, and on the coast they were
prostrated by midnight.
Railroad Truce Renewed.
A New York dispatch of February G
says the six months' truce between the
Northern Pacific Railway and the Ore
gon Railway & Navigation Company,
whereby both companies agree to bus
pend construction work in the "Clear
water country," in Idaho, expired to
day, but has been renewed for another
six months. If this is true it will prob
ably result in a postponement of the
building of railways in this country
which has been so confidently expected
for the coming summer. The Union Pa
cific denies that it has secured trackage
privileges over the Northern Pacific into
Tacoma.
