WHICH IS BIGGEST
CITY IN COUNTY?
Assessor True Says Population of
Pullman and Coifax Will
Prove About Equal.
The population of Pullman has
made a great stride forward this
week, Dr. Maguiie reported the fol
lowing additions since the last Her
ald wa3 published: To Mr. and
Mrs. Tom Taylor, at Chambers, a
son, on the 24tb; twins, a boy and
a girl to Prof, and Mrs. Bloor, on
the 25th; a girl to Mr. and Mrs. R.
C. L«uty, on the 27th; a girl to Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Moats, on the 27th;
a boy to Mr. and Mrs. Lute Ringer,
and a girl to Mr. and Mrs. W. D.
O'Conner, on the 28th.
Seven all in one week —and more
weeks coming. If Pullman doesn't
take first rank in population in the
county when the census that is now
being taken is completed, it won't
be the fault of our people, for they
are rising to the emergency with
the true Pullman spirit.
Asseeor True informed the Her
ald last week, before these returns
were in, that he believed Pullman
would beat Colfax out for first
place—the week has now uudoubt

, /GOES TO 2ND CLASS
Receipts of the Pullman Post
office Advance it to the
The?receipts of the Pullman post
ofiice for the fiscal year ending last j
night, (March 31st), will advance
the office to the second class, it hav
ing heretofore been in the third
To become an office of the second
class, the receipts for the year must
amount to not lesß than $8000, and
with the closing of the year it is
found that the local establishment
has passed that figure by about
$150. This will entitle Pullman to
all the benefits and privileges that
go with this advance in class, and
will make it possible for Postmaster
Allen to make some material and
needed improvements in the ser
vice. In the first place the allow
ences for clerk hire will be much
more liberal, new fixtures will be
installed, and the office itself will
be removed to some location where
it can have the room entirely to
itself. Allowances for th« conduct
of the office in all its various de
partments are increased: The ad
vance in class, however, does not
take effect till July Ist.
The increase iiivXie revenues of
the office has beeo keeping pace
with the growth of the city, there
having been an average increase of
$75 per month for the 36 months
that Postmaster Allen has been in
charge. This indicates that there
is no danger ol a falling off" of re
ceipts, but that the advance will be
permanent, and that free city de
livery is not far distant.

) —Dr. E. A. Reed, a physician
and Surgeon of Monroe, Wisconsin,
has purchased the office and prac
tice of Dr. Wilson and Dr. Howell,
and has removed here with his
family to become a citizen of Pull
man. He will occupy the office
and living rooms in Odd Fellows
block heretofore occupied by Dr.
Wilson. Dr. Heed practiced his
profession for a number of years in
Monroe, where he had built up an
extensive practice, but the rigors of
the climate impelled him to locate
in a place where Jack Frost was
lees at home. Mrs. Reed is now
here with the doctor, and their two
young daughters will arrive as *oon
as their school is out in the east.
Pullman has a cordial welcome for
Dr. Reed and his family .
What will you give for six large
lots located within four blocks of
business center and two blocks of
the public school? Fine residence
location. Barn and good spring on
property. A chance for a bargain.

MY SPRING STOCK IS NOW READY
While the thermometer was frisking at 20 be
low zero, and ever since, we have been busy op
ening, checking, and arranging our "Greatest
Kver" stock of 1905 Spring Hats. My business
is growing, 1904 was the biggest year I ever had,
and while it is exceedingly gratifying to me, it's
of much benefit to you and everybody in this sec
tion. The larger tny business the larger and the
more complete 1 can keep my stock and assort
ment (you know how satisfying it is to "come
here and get just what you want"); but that is
not all — the larger my business the smaller the
expense of selling and the less the prices to you.
I invite you to call, not necessarily to buy, but to
see the large assortment of BEAUTIFUI NEW
SPRING HATS, and to "rubber" around the
price marks. I think the rest will be easy for us
both. Truly yours,
MRS. P. E. FULLETON

TWO RIVERS LANDS.
New Real Estate Firm Formed at the
John A. Lyons, ex-county commis
sioner, and Ivan Chase, formerly pub
lisher of tho Col fax Gazette, have formed
ii i>;u tiin-Hhip and opened a real estate
office in thjjpvnuise block, at Colfox.
While doing a general real estate busi
ness, Wiey are hi present making a spec
ialty of the popular irrigated lands in
the now Two River district, for which
they are the sole selling agents in Whit
man county. The Two Riven district is
located in the southwestern corner of
Walla Walla county, at the confluence of
the Columbia and Snake rivers, and the
lands will be irrigated with water from
the latter, a never failing supply. The
soil is a light, sandy, volcanic ash, and
when irrigated yields most prolific crop*
of fruits, berries, vegetables, alfalfa, etc.,
which mature and are ready lor market
a couple of weeks anead of other irriga
ted districts. This manifest advantage,
when the prices for new stuff are highest
make these lands the most valuable of
Two ivers lands are sold in small
tractß, 40 acres being the limit to a pur
chaser, at very modest prices, ranging
from |60 to $<X) an acre, and the values
will advance sharply, most people any
double, in less than a year, or possibly
when the water is turned on. about 30

quicker returns assured, is offered any
Two Rivera town property, which, like
the lands, is going fast, offere similar
chances for profits. The town is lo

N. railways, one mile from each, thus
having the best possible shipping facili
ties, with quick access to the markets of
the whole northwest.

tion of year*, but of weeks only. Will
you let the opportunity slip ? Write
about it today to Lyons &Chaae/Colfax,
Wash., through whom the reduced rate
of $6 for the round trip from Colfax may
be secured. The saving in fare more
than pays your hotel bill at Two Rivers.

in past years, and waß eminently
satisfactory to the large audience.
