Will Exhibit In Colfax on Friday,
Of course, as soon as the warm
weather causes ub to forget the dull
monotony of winter we turn to the an
ticipated pleasures of the summer sea
son. First and foremost comes the cir
cus. It is a time-honored institution
without which no springtime could ade
quately be ushered in. So it is, that
when the agent of the Sells-Kioto circus
made his appearance today we were
doubly assured that the Norse King had
lost bis grip upon us.
The Sells-Floto circus will give two
performances here on June 30, and it
will be the first circus of the season to
Tbis show is popular for several rea
sons, lv the first place it comes back
year after year, giving possibly the
cleanest and most edifying performance
of any organizition iv the world of the
big tents. These people are the pioneers
of the popular priced idea, having cut
the admission fee in half last season and
will continue thaf policy this year
Their war cry is "25 cents to see the
greatest show on earth for the money.'"
Many novel feature are promised for
this season. An army of downs, a baby
hippopotamus, twin baby elephant*,
Feofilo Carbo in the most desperate act
ever seen and for the first time ever pro
duced—that of sliding head downward
on a wire from the dome of the hijj tent,
and a hundred other acts of the star va
riety are advertised.
Th * Sells-Kioto people have always
kept faith with the public and it can be
stated as an absolute fact that the cir
cus this year is larger and more magnifi
cently caparisoned Than ever before.
There is one medicine that every fam
ily should be provided with and espec
ially during the summer months, viz:
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar

be needed. It costs but a quarter. Can
you afford to be without ii? For Bale

SPOKANE FAVORS BITULITHIC.
Spokane Is Learning All It Can
About All Kinds of Paving.
(Editorial in Spokesman-Review).
There ih no more important problem
; confronting the city of Spokane than
i that of street paving.
Much hae been done Much more is
, planned. It ih of the greatest import
| auce not only to the property owners
! and residents directly Hffected, but to
the city at large, that the pavement still
to be construced should be the best
pnvement that can be secured.
Toward this end there is nothing more
I valuable than the experience of oth'T
citie«. Writing from Portland, T. S.
Griffith of Spokane notes the poor con
dition of the asphalt paving and the
good condition of the "bitulithic" pay
Spokane has about 22 miles of asphalt
paving and only four blocks on Seventh
avenue of "bitulithic "
Spokane has approximately three
miles of granitoid paving. Portions of
Indiana nvenue are being laid with
"Hassaui" paving According to Chi
cago and New York paving experts these
two pavings are no better than "bitu
lithic" in wear aud are inferior in re
niliency and eaHe on traffic "Bitulithic"
is as cheap as "HaHsam" paving and
less expensive than "granitoid." All are
declared to be superior to esphalt
ThesH pavings mentioned are ndspted
to light rraffio For the heavy traffic of
a large city the experience of both Chi
cago and New York has demonstrated
that creosote blocks are superior to any
other paving, including granite cobbles
Th« experience of ofh»r cities need not
to be taken as conclusive, but, consider
ing the amount of paving still to be
done in Spokane, too much information
cannot he secured regarding the value of
the various types of paving before ac
tual construction is undertaken.
Watch For Our Excursion to Iron.
dale the Latter Part of June.

yet we have never experienced so keen an
interest as we do right now in the future
Steel City of the Pacific Coast and man
ufacturing center of the state of Wash
The growing and continual enlarge
ment of the $3,000,000 00 steel plant
with a pay roll of $28,000 00 a month
has been widely discussed and watched
by the people. In less than one year's
time these steel works have built up a
a solid and substantial business with the
entire Pacific Coast; operating day and
night at a maximum of efficiency and a
minimum of outlay.
For some weeks past President James
A. Moore of the eteel corporation has
been negotiating with large Eastern
financial houses with the purpose of pro
viding for the expansion and develop
ment of the steel industry located at
lrondale. That these negotiations have
been brought to a successful fruition
may be seen by the new board of direct
ors. These directors are:
James A. Moore, president; Jacob

Uise, S. A. Perkins, James I) Hoge R
C. -Morris, John C. Eden, Robert Dollar'
George M.Gibb*. N. W. Jordan, Leslie
M bhaw and J E. (hilberg. These men
will all take a strong and activp interest
in the future affairs of the corporation.
Mr. Shaw was formerly secretary of the
treasury and is now president of one of
the leading banking and trust companies
of Philadelphia Mr. Morris is a lead
ing financier and banker of New York.
Mr. Smith is one of Seattle's leading
bankers and financiers. Mr. Backus is
president of the Nitional Bank of Com
merce Mr. Clise is one of Seattle's fore
most bankprs and property owners Mr
Hoge is president of the Union Savings
and Trust Co., and Mr. Heffernan is
president of the HehVrnan Engine Works
nnd the Heffernan Dry Dock Co. Mr.
Lowman is a prominent banker and
property owner'and president of the
Seattle Chamber of Commerce. By this
it will be seen that the corporation is
to receive the solid and powerful bficking
of Seattle's largest banking and financial
The 51.000,000 00 plant of theClnuspn
Chemical Co.. is another of Irondale's
features. Turning out GOO gallons of
Ethyl alcohol a day and giving emolov
ment to 2000 men.
These are but two of the money mnk
ii>e industries of Irondale. Over $5 -
000,000.00 have been spent on manu
facturing plantn, buildings and various
improvements within two years. We
want you to become one of our excur
sionists and see for yourself what we
claim and feel confident of, that it is
only a matter of time when Irondale will
stand the entablished manufacturing cen
ter of the entire Pacific Coast.
After a careful study of the Puget
Sound country, Jacob A. Riis, a citizen
of New York, says: "The theatre of action
is coon to be transferred from the At
lantic Ocean to the Puget Sound, and
you will be the front door of the nation.
When that day comes you will ae* a
string of cities spring'up about the
Sound such aa none of us have ever con
ceived in our most sanguine dreams."
Never again will you be able to pur
chase city lots or acre tracts for the
money now asked. Property is steadily
increasing. Investors, we want you and
your families to take advantage of our
excursion that will be run to Irondale
the latter part of June. Watch for the
date and the low rate that will be adver
