Who'll organize one?
Our County Jail.—ln the Habeas
Corpus case of Michael Schrcck heard at
the last term of court, it was shown by
expert testimony that the county jail at
Colfax was an unfit place to confine any
one. It was compared to the "Black
hole of Calcutta." The court, after hear
ing tho evidence, ordered the sheriff to
find better quarters for t'jo prisoners at
the county's expense. Our advanced
state of civilization demands that the
health of all those who aro confined in
prisons, 6hall be protected and cared
for, and from tho evidence in this case it
it is evident that our county jail is a
barbarous placo in which to confine any
one.
It's a Daisy.—Hon. A. T. Faries' new
house is about completed, and ho has
left nothing undone to make it a model
of convenience and artistic skill. The
main entrance leads into a hall, the front
door of which is embelished with an ele
gant stained glass window. To the left
of the hall, and leading from it, is the
library, bespeaking the taste of the own
er, and away from all noise. In the rear
of this is an airy bed-room directly con
nected with the bath-room, the latter to
be supplied with hot and cold water.
Across the hall from the library is the
parlor, corr.modious, and commanding
an excellent view of tho city and sub
urbs. Folding doors separate this from
the dining-room and the two, if occasion
calls, can be made into one large room.
The kitchen is all that a kitchen should
be, and the pantry! the completeness of
this will be tho envy of all the ladies.
Leading up from tho hall to the second
floor is an elegant stair-case, rich in its
design and finish. Tho upper apart
ments are roomy and in keeping with
the rest. At the rear of the building
Mr. F. proposes to erect a wood-shed,
cellar and ice house under one roof. The
house will be fitted throughout with new
and appropriate furnishings, and when
tho finishing touches are added to the
exterior it will be a credit and ornament
to our city.
The Liberal Advertiseb.—lt is an
invariable rule that the man who is
stingy and penurious about advertising
is stingy and penurious in his other
business transactions. The same busi
ness spirit and enterprise that prompts
a man to use printer's ink liberally in
making his business known, prompts him
to deal liberally with his customers so
that he may hold their trade. The man
who sits in his store and waits for cus
tomers to hunt him up does not have
many of them, and, consequently, he
must make the most out of those he has.
On the other hand, tho man who, week
after week, invites the public, through
the medium of the newspaper, to come
and examine his goods, telling them
when he has new goods, and when spec
ial bargains aro being offered, naturally
attracts more trade than his sluggish
neighbor, and he can afford to sell his
goods cheaper. In addition to this, the
leading public is indebted to the adver
tisers for enabling them to get cheap
j newspapers. Were it not for the reve
| nue derived from advertising, papers
that are sold for 82.00 per year could not
i be purchased for four times that amount.
These are facts worth considering when
buying goods, and buyers will always
find that they act for their own interest
when they patronize the liberal advertis
er. Note our Pullman merchants, for
instance.
—Mr. and Mrs. Wallace, of Colton,
were in town Friday.
—Dr. Webb's little daughter Flossie,
has been on the sick list since our last
issue, but is much improved at this writ
ing. Ditto Erve Krice's little boy.
—M. S. Phillips has just received a
new invoice of furniture. There is a
bed-room set in particular, that few deal
ers outside of large cities, cau afford to
keep in stock.
—Don't forget that the marqnerado
ball at Reaney's hall, is on New Years
night, and not on New Year's eve, as
some have erroneously thought. Spec
tators will bo admitted for the. small
sum of 25 cents.
—Have you read McConnell, Cham
bers & Co.'s ad. as it now appears in the
Herald? If not, do so, and you will
fin 3 just what you want. It is in keep
ing with the enterprising go-ahead spir
it of the firm.
—The latest news from E. L. Farrand,
who is at the Walla Walla hospital, un
der the care of Dr. Blalock, is that he is
improving and the chances are favorable
for his recovery, which will bo agreeable
news to his friends.
—Last Monday evening pome budge
inspired individual with pugilistic aspir
ations, sought to relieve his pent up
feelings by putting his fist through a
pane of glass in the window of the store
room formerly occupied by Philip Bre
mer.
—H. S. Conover, of Minneapolis, Minn.,
who represents thefirm of L. S. Seaver &
Co., grain merchants of that city, has
been in town the past week and taking
a look over our county. He has bought
100,000 bushels of wheat, this fall, in the
Palouso country, and expects to greatly
increase that amount next season. The
superior quality of our wheat is now be
ing recognized by eastern millers.
—The subscription list of tho Herald
is booming, and more, too. This is en
couraging. Geo. Neighbor, G. F. Lyle,
Wilbur Keith, Howard Cass, J. J. Lar
wood, W. G. Sparrow, O. S. Sehrader,
W. H. Kitzmiller, R. Knight, of Moscow,
C. A. Higgins, Geo. D. Hunter, Edwin
Burgess, and several others are the very
latest additions. And, remember, you
can have this paper and the San Francisco
Call one year for only 82.55, cash. Sam
ple copies of the Call free at this office.
—Tho east bound train on tho O. R.
& N., -which left Colfax two hours late, on
Sunday last, was further delayed by two
slight accidents. When about three
miles from Colfax, the train, which was a
long one, broke in two, and the engineer
did not discover the loss of about half
the train until he reached Riverside.
Again, between Shawnee and Guy, the
same performance was repeated. It was
nearly eleven o'clock when the train
reached Pullman.
—Action should be taken at onco to
erect street lamjjs to the depots. It is
at the risk of personal injury to go to
the depots in the dark, even to those
who are familiar with the side walks,
much more so to strangers coming in on
the trains. Besides it gives strangers a
bad impression of the town. If some
one is injured the town may have to pay
more for damages than it would cost to
light the whole town for many years.
And, by tho way, what is the matter
with the present street lamps that they
arj not lighted on dark nights? Let us
have light.
—The stockholders of the Pullman
Land and Improvement Co., met on tho
evening of tho 2Gth inst. and adopted
tho by-laws. After the stockholders
meeting the trustees met and organized
by unanimously electing the following
officers: M. S. Phillips, president; M. C.
True, vice president; W. V. Windus,
treasurer; Thomas Neill, secretary. The
subscription book was then opened and
the whole capital stock ($6000) was im
mediately subscribed for. The Co. will
at onco purchase property in Pullman,
for the purpose of improving it, and
selling only to those who will build.
—The elementary conditions have
been so favorable this fall as to allow
tho farmers a continuance of that very
necessary occupation —plowing, up to
the 22d day of December, 1888. But,
on the morning of the 23d, the men who
were so unfortunate as not to have fire
building wives, realized that the atmos
phere had assumed a sudden frigidity
that was not excessively agreeable to
early risers. There was a light fall of
snow during tho day and enough crispi
ness in the air to make the 25th seem
like a genuine Christmas, which was du
ly observed ia this vicinity.
;^ow is the time to form a board of
trade, or organization, to secure our share
of the spring emigration to this territory,
and to act on matters pertaining to the
improvement and advancement of Prill
man and vicinity. What is everybody's
business is generally neglected. Manu
facturing enterprises can bo induced to
locate here by organized effort, and the
advantages of Pullman can be made
known only, by judicious advertising.
We cannot expect people in the east to
know that Pullman offers superior ad
vantages over other parts in thePalouse
country, unless we inform them of that
fact, and this should be done before they
have decided to locate elsewhere, as they
generally know their objective point be
fore leaving home. What do yon say to
calling a meeting for the purpose of
discussing the matter?
—Evidently* there is a good deal of
money nrloat among the snwll boys of
Pullman. We judge from the following
brief but pointed conversation which we
overheard the other day at the post office:
" Tom and me went huntin' last week,"
said the first boy.
'•Get any thinif* asked the other boy,
anxiously.
" You bet! We got sixteen rabbits—
wholloj>ers, too."
" Sixteen! No. yer didn't."
"Y'lie! we did.""
"No yer didn't."
" Til bet ye a hundred dollars Wo did
—so!"
'•Bet ye a thousand dollars ye didn't
—come!"
And then there was a pause, as Capt.
Phillips appeared at the door and looked
benignly at them over his spectacles.

Our School Supplies.—Last Wed
nesday the supplies for our public
school arrived from Portland. They
have been examined and pronounce d, by
those competent to judge, the very best
and most complete collection of the kind,
in the county. These things are abso
lutely necessary to a first class graded
school, such as Pullman proposes to
have. As our readers are aware, the la
dies of this place '• put their, shoulders to
the wheel," and, with the net proceeds
of the suppers that they gave (3122.55'),
purchased these much needed accessories.
The set. including freight, cost $89.7
which, by the way, was a bargain, and
contained the following: One complete
set of maps in case; one set Wilson's
physiological charts in case; one Apple
ton's elementary reading chart (fine);
one numerical frame; one set cube root
blocks; Webster's unabridged, indexed
dictionary with an elegant stand; two
call bells; one fractional apple; one doz
en blackboard erasers; map of Oregon
and Washington territory; one magnet;
and six pointers. The ladies have $32.
--80 left in their treasury towards the
purchase of a bell.
