COLFAX BOYS TOO
EXCITED TO WIN
OLD RIVALS CARRY AWAY LAURELS
IN FAST BASKET BALL GAME
Pullman High School triumphed
over the local five last Friday even
ing by the score of 24-12 in a fast
game of basket ball. Colfax played
a good game, the team work at times
being superb but inability to cage the
ball from the field and to score from
fouls lost the game. The contest was
furious from the first sound of the
whistle and almost ten minutes of
play passed before the first basket
was made by Burgunder on a good
shot from the side. There was very
little scoring in this half and it end
ed 6-5 in favor of Pullman.
In the second period Pullman
played much better ball and after a
series of well placed shots by Butler
at forward, ran the score up to 24
„as the whistle blew for time. The
Colfax boys were keyed up to the
} highest pitch of excitement and were
so on edge to win that they overshot
the mark somewhat. Due credit
must be given to the Pullman team,
however, for they played a splendid
game, their team work at times being
especially fine. Goff, Burgunder and
Oliver were the best players for Col
fax while Butler and Moss starred
Following is the line-up and score:
Colfax—Oliver, Howard, Burgun
der, Forwards; Goff, Center; Morri
son, Fuller, Guards.
Pullman—Moss, Butler, Forwards;
dover, Center; Meek, Hinchliff,
Colfax will try to redeem herself
Saturday, February 3, when they play
the fast five from Farmington and
will try to run up a big score. A good
game is assured and it is hoped a
large crowd will be present. The
attendance at the Pullman game was
very good, the receipts being $42.00.

floor resulted In a victory for the De
partmental team over the Freshmen
Monday night. The odds were 2-1
against the Grade pupils when the
game began but they showed class
from the start, their team work be
ing very commendable and their
shooting from the field excellent. The
Freshmen played well and at some
points in the game appeared to be
forging ahead thru some good team
work but it resulted in nothing de
cisive. The score at the end of the
first half was 12-6 in favor of the De
partmental boys. The Freshmen
played better in the last half but
were unable to prevent their oppon
ents from winning and the final score

ing many baskets from the field and
passed accurately and well; Pringle

est that the game between the two
lower classes did. The score at the

6 more points on as the last whistle

DINGLE BUYS COLFAX
WAS FORMERLY RESIDENT OF
THIS CITY FOR SEVEN YEARS.
Colfax still looks good to John
Dingle, who for seven years conduct
ed a blacksmith business in this city
but for the last six years has been
engaged in the hardware, implement
and furniture business at Palouse.
Last week Mr. Dingle purchased the
business of the Colfax Implement
company and is already in possession.
An inventory of the stock has been
t°ken. Mr. Dingle knows many peo
ple of Colfax and vicinity but also
finds many new faces.
Messrs. Woodward and Moffatt
have been in business together with
Aaron Kuhn under the firm name of
the Colfax Implement company for
the last 12 years. One or the other
of the firm will continue an office
here for a few months to make col
lections and close up their business.
"This is my home," said L. D.
Woodward, senior member of the
firm, "and I have no intention of
leaving Colfax except perhaps to
spend a summer or a winter in a dif
ferent climate." Mr. Woodward is a
native of the state of Maine and
came to Colfax in 1880. For 16 years
he managed the implement business
of Frank Brothers and has been act
ively engaged in business here for 32
years, with the exception of four
years when he was in Portland. Mr.
Woodward is now 73 years of age.
He came from a family of deep sea
captains whose home was on the
Maine sea board. One brother is still
the captain of an ocean going vessel
and another brother also followed the
sea until his death. Mrs. Woodward
is also of a family of seamen. Her
five brothers, all now dead, were sea
H. M. Moffat, junior member of the
Colfax Implement company, came
here from Portland in 1896 after
spending three years in the imple
ment business in eastern Washington.
For four years he was in partnership
with A. J. Davis under the firm name
of Davis & Moffatt.
Mr. Moffatt has a farm of 880 acres
near Winona and will devote some
time to looking after his interests
there. He plans to pump water from
an inlet in the Palouse river to irri
gate about 100 acres of alfalfa land.
PRESERVING FENCE POSTS.

Cooperative tests in wood preser

are being carried on by H. B. Oak

of products at Portland and the
school of forestry at the Oregon Agri
In preserving fence posts, the hot
and cold tank method of forcing hot
creosote for three hours into the
wood, and then immersing it for the
same length of time in cold creosote,
is used. Both oak and fir posts were
used, and it has already been fairly
determined that posts tnus treated
will outlast ordinary posts by many
Fight for Mayor in Sound City.
Seattle's mayoralty campaign goes
on merrily. Thomas W. Parish has
resigned as member of the State Tax
Commission to make an active cam

Prom present appearances he is the

close second. Cotterill is an ultr-con

Just what strength he will develop,
remains a question. Parish is be

BEAN GROWING PROFITABLE.
Small Sections Find Crop Better than
A limited area in the wheat grow
ing region of eastern Washington,
eastern Oregon and northern Idaho
is adaptable to bean growing. Many
farmers of Latah and Nez Perce coun
ties, Idaho, and a few farmers in
Umatilla county, Oregon, have been
raising beans instead of summer fal
lowing for the past fifteen years. At
first bean culture was carried on only
in an experimental way, but of late
years beans have become a staple
crop about Kendrick and Juliaetta,
Idaho, and have taken the place, to
a large extent, of the old summer fal
According to the most successful
bean growers the labor cost of an
acre of beans is about $9. It the
producer receives 3 cents per pound,
which is a fair price, 300 pounds of
beans will pay the expenses on an
acre of that crop. The average crop
in the Kendrick section is about 800
pounds per acre, many fields yielding
as high as 1200 to 1400 pounds per
acre. If the farmer raises an average
crop and receives 3 cents per pound
for his product he will clear approxi
mately $15 per acre over and above
the labor cost. In addition to this
the beans should be credited with the
average cost of summer fallowing. Be
sides yielding a very good profit, this
crop leaves the ground in excellent
condition for fall seeding.
