line item in the Hek.vld mentioning
Pullman's need of a lumber-yard, no less

in town in regard to establishing a yard
here. Some of these letters are from
Dakota and Wisconsin.
—The north-bound freight on the N.
P. was partially ditched last Monday at
a point known as the summit cut, 6ome
eight miles north of this station. The
accident was caused by spreading rails.
The engine and one car passed over in
safety, but the six following cars, all
heavily loaded, were let down into the
mud ker-chuck! sinking almost over

—N. S. Hunt reports that tho chick
en-thief is abroad, and that ho is a per
son of discriminating taste, having se
lected and carried away half a dozen or
so of his (Hunt's) valuable Plymouth
Books last Sunday night. Of course
its wicked to steal, yet the present alti
tude of egg prices is liable to tempt a
man to do most anything.
—That case of small-pox reported as
at Colfax in last week's Herald proves
to be a fact. It is well quarantined, we
are told, but nevertheless it behooves us
as a town (as wo have said before) to
see that this dread disease does not en
ter Pullman. Our city anthorities have
the responsibility attached to them in
this matter. Let us have quarantine—
Board by tho week or month. Ap

and Grand-fits. 3w4
—The large number of fruit-trees sold
here by nurserymen this fall indicates a
most praisworthy movement on the part
of our farmers toward extensive orchard
cultivation in the future. There is no
reason why Whitman county should not
raise all the apples, plums, pears and
cherries needed for homo consumption,
and nmeh more. Prunes, too, would
probably do well here; at least, they aro
worth the trial.
—The filling on the Main-st. exten
sion eastward has been completed," and
the street is now opep for/teams and
traffic the entire length". In a very short
time this extension YdJJ/bo all built up
with business houßes and residences,
several contracts having already been
made to that effect. The lots arc now
owned by Pullman men entirely, and
they propose to sell at nominal prices to
all who who will build on them. It is a
fact that there is but little choice be
tween any of these lots; every one of
them is a desirable piece of business
property. The structures to be erected
in the spring will be mainly of brick, so
we are informed —and they should be,
to bei'.utiriy the town, to lessen the dan
gers from fire, and to secure a low rate
of insurance. On with the good work.

duced its freight rates to this and other
territorial points from the East, via
the. Union Pacific and Oregon Short
Line, to the samo basis as that charged
by the Northern Pacific. So much for
a healthy and genuine competition in
—As will be seen by their advertise
ment in this issue, Messrs. N. S. Hunt
and Win. Buckley, of this city, have
formed a partnership and will start a
lum.be- , .rd here, near the Northern Pa
eitic depot, at once. They will keep a

—A thoroughly competent school
principal: who wants him? Call on or
address the Herald.
—An artist, a gentleman named Fel
lows, was in town the other day, making
sketches of Pullman and its prominent
buildings for an historical work of the
territory soon to bo issued. Wo didn't
catch him soon enough to ascertain just
when, how, by whom, or for what pur
pose the volume was to bo printed, but
the redoubtable book-agent will unques
tionably bo along in duo season to en
lighten us all.
— Win. Tedder, believing that fine
stock is one of tho best of investments
for tho farmer, has just purchased of tho
Washington Importing Co., of this place,
a thoroughbred short-horn bull of tho
famous Cruikshank strain. It is only
about eight months old, but is a James
dandy animal. Thin Importing Co., b>
tho way, is one of the institutions of
Pullman and Whitman county. Mana
ger Hollinshead is no novice in the busi
ness, and you can rely upon whatever
—Promissory notes and blank receipts
for sale at this office. Give us your or

—Tho city council has just had a
quantity of letter-heads printed at this
office, on tho back of each sheet of
which is a description of Pnllman-'s fa
cilities and advantages as a place of
business and residence, and also a brief
account of Whitman county. Tho idea
is a good one, and will scatter needed
information regarding this lively spot
far and wide. Any of our merchants de
siring this matter printed upon their
stationery will be accommodated at
small cost. Call and see samples.
— H. (h DePledge, who has filled the
position of superintendent of the North
ern Pacific elevator interests here for
some time past, has resigned that place
to accept the cashier's desk in tho Bank
of Colfax, recently tendered him. He
enters upon his now duties next Wed
nesday. Merit always wins. Mr. De-
Pledge is a gentleman of enterpriso and
strict integrity; and, while regreting
his departure from Pullman, his friends
will nevertheless join in congratulating
him and tho bank upon his advancement,
so to speak.
The new roller skates have arrived,
and the Rink will be open to-night (Sat
urday). Come one, come all and have a
good' time. Tho ladies will serve supper
from 5 to 8, at 25 cents each.
—Tho elegant supper served by the
Pullman ladies on Thanksgiving night,
was a grand success fiaancially and oth
wise. The long tables laden with tooth
some viands and spread in a very attract
ive manner, were a tempting sight and
well might the ladies bo proud of their
efforts. All praise is duo them and their
gentlemen assistants for the admirable
manner in which the affair was conduct
ed. We learn as we go to press that tho
net proceeds amounted to $106.75. The
danco was also a right jolly affair, par
ticipated in by some 40 couples.

The Mill and Side-Track.
Mr. B. B. Wilson, traveling freight
agent of tbo NottherD Pacific, was is
town Tuesday, and the citizens' commit
tee having the planing-mill side-trick
matter in hand took occasion to inter
view him on tho subject. The result
was qnite satisfactory. Mr. Wilson ex
amined the proposed mill site, listened
courteously to tho committee's propos
als, and then stated that the Northern
I'acitic would undoubtedly put in the
track desired, as tho company was very
friendly to Pullman and intended to
" pull with tho town " for mutual bene
fit. This was a case of mutual interest,
and he would immediately consult with
tho higher officials in regard to it. The
committee has also received a communi
cation from Traffic Manager Clink, of
the N. P., in which he expresses himself
as willing to afford our town every pos
sible facility in tho matter, and states
that he will soon bo hero to look into it.
Mr. Enos, tho gentleman proposing to
put in tho mill and yard, has decided
that tho prospect is good enough, and
has taken steps looking to tho immedi
ate establishment of the lumber-yard
and the erection of the mill. We under
stand, also, that our townsman, Mr A.
Keaney, has become associated with the
enterprise as a partner. Success to the
new industry. Pullman and the adja
cent country is in need of a planing
mill, much—or muchly.
