BETTKR FAIR GROUNDS.
The location of the Whitman
County Faair grounds along the Pa
louse river is ideal. But few fair
societies in the northwest have
grounds better situated. Why not
go to a little trouble and expense and
put the grounds in suitable condition
for picnic parties ail through the
summer as well as for the annual
county fair? It is true the grounds
are only leased, but they have been
used for the annual event for many
years and probobly will be for many
years to come. It would be no great
expense to put out a few rapid grow
ing trees which would make shade in
a very short time and add comfort
and beauty to the already attractive
spot. Grass could easily be made
to grow in what has been dust heaps
The fair is an event which brings
thousands of visitors to Colfax each
year. The better condition in which
the grounds are found the more ad
vertising these visitors will give the
place when they go away. The
grounds might easily be made a
source of comfort as of profit.
Boost for improved fair grounds;
it means a better town and a better
town means more business.

President Taft no doubt made a
good impression on the people of
Washington who heard him speak
last week. He talks, says the Olym
pian, not in the fashion of the politi
cal spellbinder, not as the demagogue
who attempts to appeal to passion
and prejudice, not as the man who
uses what might be termed axiomatic
phrases for mere effect, but in a
heart to heart fashion. In fact he
seems to be holding a personal con
versation with all of his hearers.
In his discussion of the big issues
of the day he is most convincing. It
is something of a relief to get first
hand, the facts concerning these
matters, about which so much mis
information has been spread broad
cast. He speaks strongly and well
and every point is driven home. That
the American public likes a man with
courage was demonstrated, when in
telling of the vetoes of the cotton
and wool bills and the farmers' free
list, he announced he would do it
over again. The crowd applauded
that remark liberally for it showed
he has the courage of his convictions.
It set at rest the carefully dissemi
nated stories to the effect that Presi
dent Taft is inclined to yield to pres
sure. It displayed he has the moral
fortitude that fits him to be president
of the United States.
President Taft has come and he
has gone. He has left a most
pleasant impression on all those with
whom he came in contact for he is
a truly great man. He has demon
strated that repeatedly,- but so many
false reports were circulated con
cerning him, that it is pleasing to
know he more than offset the im
pression to the contrary by his visit.
Many traditions with regard to
the feeding of tuberculosis patients
and with regard to food in general,
are given severe blows in a series of!
articles published in the October
number of the Journal of Outdoor
Life, the official organ of the Nation
al Association for the Study and Pre
vention of Tuberculosis.
Dr. John R. Murlin, of New York,
Assistant Professor of Physiology at I
the Cornell University Medical Col- i
lege, holds in an article entitled j
'•The Dynamic Principles of Nutri- j
tion," that a consumptive will gain j
weight and do well on three pints of |
whole milk, eight ounces of cream, j
five ounces of milk sugar, six eggs ■
and fwo slices of buttered toast, as
a ration for each 24 hours. The en-!
tire diet with the exception of the
bread and butter could be prepared |
in advance and served for a cost of
COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, OCTOBER 20, 1911.
about 50 cents for the day. Miss
Cecelia Flick of the Henry Phipps
Institute of Philadelphia, also offers
some sample diets which the ordin
ary family can prepare for even less
than 50 cents a day.
Dr. David R. Lyman of Walling
ford, Conn., and Dr. Paul B. John
son of Washington, D. C, both agree
that the ordinary person eats too
much, and that the old notions about
stuffing a tuberculosis patient at all
times and seasons have been proven
false. Dr. Lyman holds that eggs
are not a necessary article of the
consumptive's diet, and that a tuber
culosis patient should eat anything
that agrees with him that is nourish
ing. He thinks that a tuberculosis
patient should eat only a little more
than a person in ordinary good
Dr. Murlin compares the food we
eat to the fuel used in furnishing
steam and power for an engine. In
selecting our food he says that we
should eat enough to furnish energy
for the day's work, but that much
more than this is not needed. He
holds that the appetite is not a
necessity for good digestion. "There
is no fallacy of nutrition," he says,
"greater than that which supposes
that a food cannot be digested and
utilized without appetite." Most of
the food we eat, fully four-fifths,
goes to supply energy for our every
day tasks, while less than one-fifth
goes to support building material.
A QUIET PLACE.
A thin, sickly little man entered
one of the stores in one of our small
towns recently and quietly seated
himself on a conveniant chair. One
of the clerks approached and asked if
he wished to purchase anything. "Oh,
no," said the man, "I just dropped in
for a few minutes." After half an
hour had passed, the manager of the
store, becoming curious, approached
him and asked what could be done
for him. "Why nothing that I know
of," said the man. "You see I have
nervous prostration and the doctor
told me to stay in a quiet place. No
ticing that you do not advertise I
thought this would be about the
quietest place I could find." Let me
tell you it was anything but quiet
there for five minutes. The poor lit
tle man found himself in the street
wishing that he had landed on a
feather bed. But the next week the
store surprised itself with a big dis
play "ad" in the home paper.
Statistics relative to the leading
crops for the state of Washington,
collected at the Thirteenth Decen
nial Census, April 15, 1910, are con
tained in an official statement issued
by Census Director Durand.
In the decade between 1899 and
1909 wheat increased 1,029,913
acres, or 94.7 per cent. From 187!)
when 18,554 acres were harvested,
wheat rose in 1889 to 372,65* «.n
1899 to 1,088,102, and again in
1909 to 2,118,015. Hence, during
the last 30 years wheat has Increased
about 25 times. The aggregate yield
in 1909 was 40,920,390 bushels: tht
average yield per acre, 19 bush 'Is,
the average value per acre, $16.55.
Perhaps we have a spark .more of
humanity than the Seattle Republican,
which goes after us with this cold
blooded view of the China situation:
" 'China needs doctors,' says the
Colfax Gazette. What for? to teach
the Chinese they have appendix, which
the doctors would purposely inflame
that they might have an opportunity
to take them out at a cost of from
$300 to $3,000, the amount based
wholly on the patient's capability of
liquidating the same after the opera
tion has been made? It seems to us
that China needs being let alone."

Lawyers en a Strike.
Over 300 years ago one of the mo3t
unusual strikes ever recorded took
place In Paris, when all the lawyers
walked out, so to speak. A law or
ordonnance was issued and promul
gated by the French king Henry IIL
ordering all lawyers to sign their
pleadings and to state the amount
they were charging their clients for
their services. This was done so that
the lawyers could be properly and
sufficiently taxed on their income.
The lawyers objected, and the strike,
causing an entire stay of judicial pro
ceedings, followed. Peace was restor
ed by the nonenforcemeut of the or
donnance. though it was not repealed.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing
and when it is entirely closed. Deaf
ness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous
