PUBLIC HITCHING YARD.
One thing that Colfax has over
looked for many years is a public
hitching yard. It is the farmers who
have made this one of the best busi
ness towns in the United States. Why
should not we give them what they
need when they come here to do busi
A yard for wagons, sheds, feed
boxes and hitching rails together
with a comfortable rest room would
add much to the convenience and
comfort of the farmers who drive in
to town. It seems like a duty to pro
vide something of this sort. We owe
it to ourselves and to the people on
whom we depend for business.
The city council has it in their
power to purchase grounds and make
the desired improvements. Now that
the streets are to be paved this step
suggested should be taken as one
move towards making a clean town
and as a precaution against holes j
which are bound to wear in any pave
ment where horses are continually |
hitched in the same place. A suitable
location for a hitching yard can be
purchased and the investment would;
be a paying one. Ask your neighbor
what he thinks of the plan.
The work of opening Main street j
from the court house to the 0.-W. R.
& N. depot has been so long delayed ;
that there has been a doubt in the!
minds of some v it would ever be;
carried out. However, the steel has
been shipped and the work will soon j
be completed to the satisfaction of
ail. The county and city authorities
liave been laboring under difficulties
ever since the flood and it has taken
time to repair the damages. Few
outsiders appreciate the responsibili
ty and labor thut has been thrust on
the officials, but it is a fact that, they
have gone through trying times and
have been working for what they
consider the best interests of all con
Now that the senate has passed
the reapportionment bill the state of
Washington will have two additional
congressmen. Unless by some im
probable chance an extra session of
the legislature is called the addition
al congressmen will be elected next
year from the state at large. When
the legislature does finally create the
two new districts one will be west of
the Cascades and the other east.
There is wide speculation at the pres
ent time over the boundaries of the
districts in eastern Washington after
the change is made but no one knows
what the final outcome will be.
It is refreshing to note that we
will soon have a sidewalk on the west
side of Main street between the Reid
building and the Island street bridge.
The new city park and the Myrick
property on Lake street are also to
come in for their share of improve
ments in the sidewalk line.

Th» Seal Ring.
The seal ring is known to be the
oldest style of ring. It dates buck to
the days of the Old Testament, and
products of the glyptic art. as gem en
grartng was called, were known In
the most remote times. In Kxodus
xxvlii. 17-20. mention is made of the
following stones, upon which the
names of the twelve children of Israel
were engraved: The sardius, the topaz,
the carbuncle, the emerald, the sap
phire, the diamond, the ligure. the
agate, the amethyst, beryl, onyx and
Jasper. In verse 2of the same chap
ter we find mention of the engraving
of signets upon the hardest stones. It
is believed that the Egyptians instruct
ed the Israelites in the art of stone
engraving. The Egyptians used the
lapidary's whoel and emery powder
and knew the use of the diamond In
engraving other hard stones. Among
the Assyrian and Babylonian ruins
were found fine specimens of signets
on gems, many of them set In rings.

They are such as are made up of two
parts of similar form. Look carefully
at these and you will perceive thai the
upper halves of the characters are ;»
very little smaller than the lower
halves, so little that, at a mere glance.
you would declare them to be of equal
size. Now turn this pane upside down,
and without any careful looking you
will see that the difference in size is
very much exaggerated—that the real
top half of the letter is very much
smaller than the other half. It will \»
seen by this that there Is a tendency
in the eye to enlarge ihe upper par;
