note the appearance of frost and snow in
blizzard regions this early. Kansas liar
experienced this month one of the se

And thus it has been to some extent all
through the east. Here in Washington
the climate is fine—mild weather. On
this side of the Cascade range it 13 clear
and warm, while on the west side it is
warm with more or less rain. Second
crops of hay, fruit and strawberries are
gathered in this month of November
from the outdoor field, orchard and gnr

—The traveling performing bear and

—The city council have been holding

—The small-pox "scare" at Portland,
Seattle and other coast cities, is no mere
rumor: it's B scabby fact. It was re
ported here this week that a case had
appeared at Colfax, an importation,
probably, from tho west. How true
this is we cannot say. In view of the
fact that Pullman and her neighbors are
in daily communication with Portland,
it behooves tho authorities to maintain
a close watch upon all comors from that
direction, while the population make
hasto to bo vaccinated. "An ounce of
prevention is worth " —a whole section
of graveyards. Our town Council should
look into this matter at once.
—Blessed is tho man who sitteth not

both day and night. He shall be like
unto an evergreen treo planted by the
river of waters—his leaf shall not decay
nor his branches wither, but he shall wax
fat like unto a bay steer fed upon tho
succulent grasses of Whitman county,
and when tho day of reward cometh he
shall " get there, Eli," whilo tho kicker
«;hall bo consigned to outer darkness,
where tho boomer is not known and the
business man never advertises.

—Barney Hattrup paid his election

nounced in our last issue. The wheel
barrow was handsomely deoorstdd with
the national flag and portraits of Harri
son and Morton. Mr. Benfro wore the
new sill: hat and carried a new broom,
which also bore tho Union colors, and he
seomed to enjoy his ride quite as hugely
as did the large crowd that witnessed it.
And Barney, ho still proudly wore his
Cleveland tilo and its heavy bund of
black, notwithstanding. After all, he
gets out of it easier than that fallow out
in Minnesota, who must pay his election
bet by wearing woman's skirts, etc., for
tho next three months.
—Tho Uniontown Journal has the fol

W. V. Dresser, residing four miles
west of Pullman, came to Whitman
county seven years ago, with only 814
in money, and with one horse. But bo
iug possessed with an unlimited amount
of pluck and enterprise, ho at once set
tled on a piece of government laud and
went to work to make a stake. To-day he

thing needed and has money ahead. We

PULLMAN AND ITS PAPER.
As our readers probably observed last
week, the Herald and Pullman have
been tho recipients of some very kindly
notices from tho press of tho vicinity
and of distant states. Tho Herald re
turns acknowledgments in behalf of it
self and its lively town and appends a
few more, just to show how a "live busi
ness burg" is regarded when judged by
its newspaper columns. It pays to ad
vertise, you sec:

THE PLANING MILL.
A meeting of our leading citizens was
held at Iteaney's ball last Monday even
ing to meet a Mr. Enos, from Oregon,
and consider his proj>osition to establish
a steam planing mill, sash and door fac
tory and lumber-yard in Pullman. M.
W. Drinkwnter occupied the chair, and
W. V. Windus acted as secretary. The
object of the gathering was stated by
Mr. Phillips. Mr. Enos said that he
was ready to flroet the necessary build
ings, put in the machinery, and stock
up a lumber-yard, 60 that everything
would be ready for operation early next
spring, provided a site was donated him
or the requisite ground furnished at a
reasonable figure. He had been offered
lots near the Grand-st. bridge, property
of tho Moores, but deemed the price ex
orbitant for tho location and would not
buY. Later, in company with Capt. M.
S. Phillips, ho had examined tho land
lying botween the N. P. and O. R & N.
railway tracks, just east of the water
tank, nnd belonging to Messrs. A. Eea
ney nnd Wai. Vedder. This suited him
much better, whereupon the owners,
with true public spirit, had donated him
tho site without cost. Ail that was re
quired now was that the railroads bo in
duced to put in a sido-track for the mill
at that point, and this one or the other
of the companies would probably do, on
proper representation, if tho citizens
would mako tho grading. After some
discussion, a committee consisting of W.
V. Windus, M. S. Phillips and John M.
Hill, was appointed to immediately con
fer with the railroad authorities regard
ing this side-track. Mr. Enos further
stated that so soon as either railroad
agreed to put in tho track he would be
gin shipping in lumber for tho mill and
yard. Tho meeting then adjourned un
til again culled by the committee to
make report. Here is an opportunity
to secure for Pullman a much-needed
enterprise, and it is hoped no personal
jealousies (if there be any such) or dog
in-the-manger policy will be permitted
to stand in tho way for a moment. The
reputation of our town a 8 a liberal, en
terprising business point has gono wide
ly abroad, to our constantly increasing
benefit, and, unless JCi wwh to kill it
deader than a hammer, you wiil 98&.
your shoulder to the wbct-1 of public im
provements like this, push tho drones
nnd inactives aside, and "keep things a
moving." Certain it is, such contemp
lated business additions as the one in
question must not bo permitted to give
us the go-by because of the greed of
purblind uoa-resident property-ownore.
