Nothing so clearly indicates the
prosperity of a town as a glance at the
advertising columns of its journals. Spo
kane is ahead in this respect, as in all
others. —Review.
But not ahead of Pullman, population
considered, my dear sir.
—All persons having an interest in
literature and societjju'-i-c. siir£iiMy iii

Mrs. Archie White, next Tuesday even

the Moonlight Dancing Club, gave an
■ vi-:. "^apu enjoyable parties, Tuesday
evening, inc:u^ . ' .^^ :li snrpcr .
Tho Heiiald nSbcwtedgai't^ • , of
"complimentary," but ra qompelled to
J remain at home and " 'teuv. to business."
—Tho following from the Moscow Star
has an application to Pullman worthy of
attention from our mouied men:
The scarcity of houses in town is ac
tually driving to other places people
i who would locate here but cannot get
. a house to live in. Let some of our cap
italists put up some houses for renting
purposes and they will reap rich returns
from the investment.
—The rapid manner in which farmers,
1 and others, are paying off their notes at
the bank and stores this fall speaks vol
umes, not only for Whitman county's
1 prosperity, but for tho general good
credit of our people. Our Dakota friends
■ ought to witness some of this kind of
"rush."
—We understand that a number of
Pullman ladies have in hand the project
of giving a public entertainment in the
near future, the aim being to assist in
purchasing supplies, apparatus, etc., for
the new school building. The Hekald
will give tho details as soon as the la
dies perfect them.
—The north-bound express on the N.
P. was thrown partially from the track
last Sunday morning, a short distance
east of this station, by a sudden spread
ing of the rails. Tho previous rains had
softened up the road-bed considerably
at that particular point, am] when the
train struck it, the wheels were quickly
but firmly deposited on the ties and in
the mud alongside. No special damage
was incurred.
McConnell, Chambers <fc Co. import
crockery in original crates and undersell
small dealers. Dinner plates, cups and
saucers, 40 cents per set; lamps, 25 cems.
etc. ltf
—The very neatest retort of tho sea
son to an impertinent remark was that
ovorheard by the Herald man at Spo
kane Falls, the other day. A decidedly
hungry arrival at the Commercial Hotel
rushed into tho dining-room and fell up
on the eatables with great determination.
" I declare," said one of those hotel fun
ny dogs (a clerk at about $S a week)
who sat at the same table, "my dear sir,
you remind me of the prodigal son."
" Just so," was tho quick retort of the
hungry man, as he speared another bis
cuit, " I am forced to eat with the hogs."
And then there was silence in large
chunks nil around that table for several
consecutive- periods.
—Any good business man who can
invest from $3,000 to $5,000 in a lum
ber yard here can realizo a comfortable
fortune from the investment, providing
his nature is not entirely swinish. There
is a great and growing demand in this
line, consequent upon the immense
amount of building being done through
out the country. And there is no
'• boom " on, either.
—The friends and acquaintances of
A. T. Fariss (and they are legion) will
rejoice that ho has been so handsomely
elected to represent the county in the
next Legislature. There are few men
who can carry almost-solid democratic
precincts, as Mr. Fariss did, in a general
election year —but, then, those who real
ly know him don't wonder at it. He
will make a good legislator, sure.
—A gentleman representing a party
of Eastern farmers and stock-raisers was
in Pullman this week, negotiating with
one of our real-estato agents for the
cash purchase of a large body of land,
improved and unimproved, for agricul
tural, stock and fruit-growing purposes.
The amount of soil wanted aggregated
1,360 acres, and the "dicker" will un
doubtedly bo consummated. So much
for advertising the town and county.
We are not at liberty to give names at
present.
—The latest device for swindling is un
der the cover of an advertisement in tho
Portland papers "to those just married,
or contemplating marriage," promising
to send for one dollar only to any ad
dress, "carofully sealed and secure from
observation," a work which no newly
married couple should be without, etc.
Hundreds of letters were sent in to
the address given, each containing the
dollar. To each applicant was sent a
cheap testament, costing perhaps, with
postage, about ten cents. A couple of
Pullman partif-t> were among tho victims.
Still, it would be hard to wh.on.in it
did not fill tho bill.
—Several rooms in the Palace Hotel
were entered by a sneak-thief last Wed
nesday night and the clothing of tho oc
cupants relieved of valuables. E. D.,
Fred, and Ben. McConnell each lost a
watch (two of them gold) and sums of
money varying from 86 to §10. The of
fice of the livery barn was also visiteu
by the thief and Julius Christianson,
ono of tho employes sleeping there,
robbed of a certificate of deposit in tho
Bank of Pullman for $225, his pocket
book containing about 810, and a watch
and chain. Tho certificate was num
bered 271, and dated Aug. i, 1888. Ev
idently tho intruder was well acquaint
ed nil n lii? victims and the surround
• :■* id >ntity is suspected it
he collared shortly. Of
a)i thi('.'.-.. . •• aiieaki .- ..
—It tak^ live . -
town. Deed men are only Hi to .
cemeteries. If they i.v^.ntly den 1
—dead nil over—we tenderly lay them
away to tho sleep of tho tomb; but if
they nre dead to all enterprise, outsido
of tho narrow plane of their own inter
ests, and yet persist in walking around,
moving their dry bones and calloused
hearts and consciences where real estate
is wont to throb with vigor, they are on
ly like the drone bees—in the way until
they are stung to death and dragged
outsido tho hive of legitimate industry.
Twenty real live men are worth more to
a town and tho public generally than a
round, full thousand of useless material
that lies around like rubbish in a rising
.stream which is aching and foaming to
turn mills and factories. Tee, live men
bless and dead men curse a town. The
advertising columns of a newspaper gen
erally show who live men are, especially
those in business.—Cheney Sentinel.
—Tho postoffico officials keep on pro
mulgating the most idiotic " decisions "
regarding mailablo matter. The latest
is, that a potato sent through the mails
as second-class matter, if stitched up in
a white cloth, is subject to letter postage,
on the ground that the contents of the
envelope cannot be readily examined.
Of course it is implied by this that the
average postoffice employe cannot be
trusted to distinguish by the touch be
tween a potato and a live mud-turtle
eewed up in a white cloth. Again (and
this removes the dilapidated linen from
the shrubbery): If a stamp rests on
both tho wrapper and newspaper, the
newspaper becomes subject to letter
postage! We are aware that the amount
of whisky consumed by government of
ficers at Washington is considerable, but
we wero not prepared to realize that it
was being absorbed in such immense
quantities as this decision indicates.
Tho next ruling will be that private let
ters must be '■ left open at one end," so
that the officials may assure themselves
that neither a lumber-yard nor a canal
boat is being surreptitiously smuggled
through the mail.

THE FIRST COPY.
The first printed copy of the Herald
(and, by the way, tho first sheet ever
printed in Pullman), with affidavits at
tached certifying to its genuineness, will
be sold at auction to the highest cash
bidder next Monday evening at the store
of Fariss Bros., at 7:30 o'clock. Dr.
Webb will do the hard work, and the ed
itor will pocket tho—that is, will do the
standing around. "Make your bids,
gentlemen."
TO OUR READERS.
Sample copies of this paper aro being
sent to every person in the town and
county whose name we have been able
to obtain. Undoubtedly, also, many
who would like to examine it havo been
over-looked. We will be glad to re
ceive the addresses of such, by mail
or otherwise. All aro invited to become
regular subscribers. If you cannot pay
for tho paper at present, pay us later.
If you want the Herald we desire that
you shall havo it—and we behove all
men aro honest until proven otherwise.
If you do not want it, notify us, or
your postmaster. In the latter case
the postmaster, in tho line of his duties,
will then notify us. The Herald will
probably bo enlarged soon, but the sub
scription prices will remain the same
as at present. Shall wo enroll your
name ? tf

From Gnzctto, Nov. 2.
The Colfax foundry will be ready to
begin casting next week.
The remains of David Yeater and wife,
tha victims of last week's tragedy, were
buried in one grave in Colfax cemetery
Saturday last.
It is expected that grading on the

now laid between Farmington and
Oakesdale.
The Colfax «fc Palouse Mining Compa
ny, with a capital stock of 8200,000, di
vided into 40,000 shares at $5 each, was
organized in this city Tuesday la6t and
tho following officers elected for the en
suing six months: T. B. Weller, presi
dent; Thomas Shearer, vice president;
Hans Michaelson, secretary. The com
pany was organized for the purpose of
developing and working the recently
discovered silver ledge near Colfax, and
will begin operations this week. The
shares of the company are assessable to
I the extent of 20 per cent., which amount
will be devoted to development purposes.
A considerable quantity of the compa
ny's stock is already spoken for, and, it
baing a matter which promises to favor
ably affect the interest of every citizen
of Colfax, it should be given the encour
agement and help which its importance
justifies. If there is a silver mine in the
out skirts of Colfax, or elsewhere in the
Palouse country, tho Gazette would like
to see it producing its wealth. In this
case a few dollars will determine the
matter arid tlio money will bo well spent.
