for the week is Full and interesting.
The importance, of pure water for
stock is touched on by the July Farm
Journal in these words: "The mi-Jsum
mer often brings much suff-ring to stock
because the water supply fails or becomes
low. Tains should be taken to provide
an ample supply of pure water, not only
because it is humane so to do, but for
the more seltinb reason that the animals
wiil thrive and produce much better,"
The importance of teaching aericul
ture in the schools of the cities is receiv
ing widespread attention. Toppeuish
voters have just authorized a bond issue
to purchase ten acres for experimental
grounds and a farm in connection with
the school. Superintendent Bush, of
Ydkima, is working to establish con
Bolidated schools and the plan of build
ing teachers' cottages, so as to make
them permanent residents of the com

Rging things of recent developments
When strife an contention is dropped
prosperity finds an easy entrance. In
Tacoma, the Chamber of Commerce and
the Commercial Club have consolidated.
Hoth were trying to do the same line of
work, each in his own way. The rivalry
divided the exploitation forces of the
town, doubled the expense and did not
achieve the results to which the city was
entitled. Now, Seattle's commercial or
ganiz\tions have a similar plan in mind
Over lapping is a waste of energy but

A report from Washington, I>. ('. gays
that Congressman W. E. Humphrey, the

ister look, so much so that Speaker
Champ Clark recently referred to him as
'the member from the Northwest who
looko like the pirate CrtsLro." Now it is
known that Clark dislikes fringed faces.
And us nmny a serious word ie epoken
in jest, it is just possible that Hum
phrey's luxuriance may arouse the
Speaker's antagonism. Tor this reason,
some of his constituents are considering
an appeal that he bauiHh the offending

THE SERIOUS SIDE.
Crowning a king m not all pageantry.
Beneath the pomp and show, the glitter
and glamour of such sumptuous eeenes
as attended the coronation of George V
of England last week, there id a business !
of deadly seriousness. The lot of the
English sovereign la very different today i
from that of the king of song and
story. King Edward, George's father,
i* said to have been at his desk at 7
o'clock each morning and his working
day was a long one in which affairs of
diplomacy, affairs of court etiquette,
aff tire of the army aDd navy, industrial,
political, colonial and personal affairs
came before him in such a mass that he
was declared by those most familiar with
his everyday life the hardest working
man in Europe. King George must
keep up the pace. He gives promise of
being a great ruler and the whole world
wishes him success.
The presence of thousands of American
sightseers and curiosity seekers in Lon
don is not the extent of America's deep
interest in the crowning of King George,
The millions who are at home realize
more fully, perhaps, the real significance
lebind this magnificent display.
EDITOR CLARKE RETIRES.
After four years and nine months faith
ful and conscientious service as editor of
the Colfax (iasette Charles S. Ciarke has
severed his connection with this paper.
On account of hi* health he has found it
i necessary to seek a change. All bis life
Mr. Clarke has been in the newspaper
business up and down the Pacific coast
! and wherever he has been he has made a
. dost of friends who appreciate his sterl
: ing qualities. This week he is visitiug
I bis old home at Seattle but will return
' here in a few days and will then spend a
little time with Mr. Chase on the ranch.
It is the sincere wish of Mr. Clarke's
many Colfax friends that he will soon re
gain his former good health and enjoy
many years of prosperity and happiness.
Mr. Clark is succeeded by Ray \V.

Anonymous letters have been circu
lated through the local pcstxffice this
week attacking the position of the city
council in the selection of bitulithic pav
ing. The letters are signed "Your Com
mittee, the Tax Payer*." Timely and
honest protest to any action that may
seem wrong is perfectly proper and
should receive serious consideration.
However, by their failure to sign their
names the committee has laid itself open
to criticism. On the street there are
two distinct opinion?. One is that the
letter is fathered by one of the paving
companies who were unsuccesnful bidders.
The other opinion is that the protest
is honest, but poor judgment was used
in keeping the identity of the writers in
the dark. The paving question will
doubtless receive a thorough going over
