IT'S STATE COLLEGE
Legislature Changes the Name of
the College to State Col
lege of Washington.
A telegram from Olympia last
night brought the news that the
senate had passed the bill changing
the name of the great educational
institution located here from the
long and misleading title of "Wash
ington State Agricultural College
and School of Science" to the
"State College of Washington".
This change is one that has been
long desired by the friends of the
college, the name used most com
monly, "agricultural college", being
in a great sense misleading as it
gave a wrong conception of the^
broad scope of the institution.
While the teaching of agriculture,
and those branches most closely
identified with agricultural pursuits,
is one of the leading features of the
college, other functions are of equal
importance, but under the old name
they were of course lost somewhat
to view, and the new name is more

counting Uncle Sam's stamps, envelopes,

Mr. Fullenweidor says that he finds
everything in first class condition, the
local post office being conducted in a
manner that is eminently satisfactory,
and that his report to the government
will be that the only thing needed at
Pullman are new eases and furniture,
which the department should install
with as little delay as possible.

—Commissioner J. R. Rupley has
recently returned from a visit to Dayton,
where he lived a number of years ago.
Mr. Rupley states that he finds condi
tions somewhat different there than in
the Palouse country, a few farmers
having built up bonanza farms, which
are being farmed on an extensive scale.
In fact Mr. Ruply states, at least two
school districts "have «been practically
ruined through the sale of individual
farms to the big farm, and the 'conse
quent removal of the original owners
from the district. In the two districts
mentioned, the population has fallen too
low to support schools.
— W. L. LaFoltette washere Wednes-J
day from his bonanza fruit farm at Wa
wawai, and reported, to the, Mkrai.d that
the fruit hail come through the winter
uninjured, the coldest :weather on the
river at his orchards having been but
three degrees below zero,; while it takes
ten below to injure even : the tenderest!
varieties. Owing the dryness of the
season, the. buds were very backward. i
The one thing thai theofchardists want
this spring is lots of rain. The snow
fall in the mountains la light, and the
river, from which the orchards' are irri
gated, will be very low. In the districts !
higher up the rivet,; around Lewiston j
and Claikston, the cold was more intense J
and some injury to fruit may have result- j
—A discovery to which a good deal of
mystery attaches war made by E. W.
Downen, one day this, week. On his
farm on the river bluff above Wawawai, j
Mr. Downen discovered 1 a saddle, with j
bridle and blanket cached away under a !
bush, the outfit evidently having been
there for four or five years. The saddle
had been apparently about a $35 rig and
in first class shape when hidden away,
but the years of exposure to the action
of the weather had left it in bad condi
tion, although a little, repair will make 1
it a good saddle again/* Whose laddie it i
was, or why it was hidden away no one !
seems to know.
—The exercises of the various depart-1
ments at the public school on Washing

and Mesdames. R. 0. Sargent and
C. A. Barry addressed the pupils
of the lower grades, and Mrs. L. ('.

annual military ball, at the W. A. C.

the college soldiers should feel that as j

extreme, with the handsomely decorated
armory, .the uniformed defenders of the
stars and stripes, and the beautiful
women, and from the Hounding of "assem
bly' 'to "taps"'all was joy and merriment.
A number of visitors were present from
outside towns, including a number weai

John M. McLean Chosen to Man
age Whitman's Exhibit at
Lewis & Clark Fair.
The committee appointed by the
county commissioners last week to
arrange for the exhibit of Whitman
county products and resources at
the Lewis & Clark fair, met at Col
fax Tuesday, all members of the
committee of fifteen being present
except Staley and Klemgard, ap
pointed from Pullman.
The matter of greatest, import
ance was of course the selection of
an executive commissioner, and the
job finally fell to John M. McLean,
of Oakesdale, former democratic
sheriff of Whitman county. An
executive committee of three mem
bers, composed of J. S. Keeney, of
Colton; J. McCann, of Farmington,
and S. C. Armstrong, of Colfax,
was selected, to have the manage
ment of the exhibit.
The committee also decided that
the commissioners be asked to ap
propriate $5,000, instead of but $3,
--i 000, as originally intended.
The Bean Bake of 1905.
The annual bean bake of Whit*
j man Post has become famous all
the country rouud, and that of last
[ Friday was even more successful
than those that have gone before,
the receipts of the evening being
upwards of $rSO. Socially it was
no less a success. The usual feast
of beans was served from 6 to 8 in
the Ankeny building by the mem
bers of the W. R. C, followed in I.
O. O. F. hall by an excellent pro
gram before an enthusiastic audi
ence. The music was mainly pat
riotic selections and old-time army
songs and the fact that it was under
Mrs. Pittwood's direction is guar
antee that it was especially enjoy
able. The address by Rev. Powell
was in his usual happy vein and
I was listened to with closest atten
tion. "The Whistling Regiment,"

make dollars double I hem set res. We have proved to
a great many that our statement was true. We
harr decided to extend this extraordinary sale for
two weeks longer.

At the close of the program the
veterans with their aides retired
from the field, leaving the hall to
those who wished to dance to the
music furnished by the Tucker-
A Washington Tea.
The Colonial Tea, given Thurs
day afternoon by the Missionary-
Society of the Congregational
church at the "Altou," was one of
the most pleasant affairs of the sea
son. A large company of ladies
enjoyed the social afternoon, the
program of music and readings, and
lastly the tea, served with hatchet
shaped wafers by dames wearing
the cap and kerchief of Colonial
times. The pictured face of the
Father of his Country at the en
trance looked a benign welcome on
all comers, and the suggestive
cherry tree with its crimson fruit
was everywhere. At the sides of
the entrance hall, beautiful silk
flags festooned the doors leading to
parlors and dining room. The
large dining room was darkened, a
soft light being shed from numer
ous Japanese lanterns, which, with
the lavish decorations of the nation
al colors, and all the dainty acces
sories of the tea tables, lent a de
lightful charm to the occasion.
Mrs. Krnmouth proved herself an
ideal hostess, and the thanks of the
society are hers for contributing so
largely to the success and pleasure
of the afternoon.
