Henton hurriedly drove down town to
notify Mr. Henton, but he m in court
at the time. Hearing of the cause for ber
alarm. M U. Will* and Ed. Webster
quickly volunteered to find the lost child
and immediately went to tbe Henton res
idence for a clue aa to which wsy be
might have gone. When they arrived,
however, they found tbe'little boy at
home, but in s state of juvenile panic over
bis experience. He had strayed away to
the vieinitv of J. M. Baxter's residence,
two or three blocks, from home. A lady
who knew him discovered that he was in

A number of Yaktmsn's now in the east
write that tbty have tiegun to yearn for

Generally.they report eastern cooimuni
'ties so quiet in a business way -and so
dull socially that, aside from the society
of relatives or friends, there is no induce
ment to remain. The sentiment among
them so favorable to Yakima is practic
ally unanimous; and why shouldn't it
be? No country known to the writer
presents as many advantages to the cubic
yard as that which surrounds this gar
den spot and no soil returns as much
material profit for labor and money in

more forcibly by contrast, perhaps, than

them abundant opportunity for so doing.
Its dlalonge is bright without being pre
tentious; its situations are laughably
absurd; it! incidents are original and
funny, and the supporting company will
be found to be unusually strong and well

many funny specialties have been intro
duced for this season's tour and tbe piece
is said to be funnier than ever.

Hctmi Orrictß and Hi* IHtikh.—"l
notice that Health Officer McCormlck han
been the subjen ol a good deal of criti
cism," said a well-known citizen yester
day In a crowd who were discussing the
recent action taken against the spread of
the diphtheria sconrge, "and I believe
much of it Is unjust, bat it comes, no
doubt, from those who know little or
nothing of his business. In the first
place Dr. MrCormii-k bad simply heard
that then was diphtheria in the Cowy
chee valley and he immediately told the
mayor what information he had and then
jumped in his buggy and left for the
seine of the reported scourge. Previous
to going, however, he heard that a boy at
the Bartholet hotel was believed to be
taking it. On investigation, Dr. Me-
Cormick found reason to believe that the
boy was taking the disease and informed
the mayor of that fact, requesting that
the child be Immediately removed from
the town or that the hotel be quarantined.
He made a similar statement to the
rather of the child. On that day the
health officer went to the Cowychee and
convinced himself that diptheria prevailed
there; thereupon he sent word to Dr. Jl.
M. Savage to take action for him looking
to quarantining the hotel, but the child
had been taken away when Dr. Havage
got the word.
"It is known, of course, that the health
officer has no jurisdiction out of the rity
limits; yet I believe he was officially
active in the work of aiding the council
to determine 1 intelligently what should be
done. This is the opinion of those who
have informed themselves about the mat
ter. There is, or should be, a county
board of health and where contagions are
rep irted to axist in the country precincts
it is their duty to investigate the matter.
The city ought not to be asked to pay for
special service of physicians sent into ihs
country for that purpose. The law, it is
said, was inadvertently left out of Hill's
code, hut it may be found in the laws of
The reporter referred this matter to Dr.
McCormick, health officer, who verified
the foregoing statements, and added i
"If I in any way failed to meet the re
quirements regulating the duties of
health officer I confess that I have been
unable to find a physician in the city who
understands that law. I have made an
earnest effort to have a board of health
properly organized and put in working
condition, but so far have not attained
the object of my effort. For instance, the
local board of health should report to the
state board of health the existence of con
tagious diseases when they are discovered
here, but I so far am the only member of
that board who has made such report. I
personally investigated the condition of
the alleys and a number of ill-kept back
yards -and barnyards in the city and
recommended officially that the council
take action immediately toward putting
them in proper condition and compelling
them to be kept so. Action was taken,
but no penalty was imposed for refusal to
comply with the ordinance regulating
• "The secretary of the state board wrote
two or three letters' to the local board of
health for information, but, the -board
never having been organized, he got no
answer until a personal letter from that
functionary was handed to me as health
officer and I answered it.
"Another thing: I have pursued my
duties under difficulties that could easily
have been averted. For instance, I have
no blanks on which to make out certifi
cates of death, notices of the existence of
contagious diseases, nor have I stationery
of any kind as health officer. I put in a
requisition for it and my application was
favorably received by action of the coun
cil, but my order was never filled.
"Relative to the sewers and sewer con
nections, I, after investigation, reported
that the council should compel sewer con
nections within thirty days from the da'.e
fixed when the council decreed it should
be done in sixty days. The council, im
mediately upon receipt of my report, de
clared proper sewer connections should be
made within fifteen days; but the official
order was never enforced.
"Some people labor under a peculiar
hallucination as to the official latitude
given a health officer in a city of this
class. I may discover the existence of
contagious diseases in the cit/ and make
my report in accordance with law, but I
can't compel the authorities to adopt it
or take any action relative to enforcement
of existing ordinances. Nor have I any
jurisdiction in country precincts. The
laws of the state leave that with the
county board of health. If it is not
properly organized I certßioly cannot be
blamed with the dereliction.
"As to the personal features of this
controversy I will have nothing to say at
this time." •
Ik th« DiroBCK Court.—Cruelty, deser
tion and failure to provide has been the
burden of the song in the divorce court
this week in seven different cases where
in the evil results of Cupid's random
shots have been aired ad libitum.
The case of Webster L. Stabler vs. Har
riett Stabler occupied the attention of the
decree mill for three days, but nothing
of startling interest developed save the
fact that the unhaDpliy inismated pair
had agreed to disagree, but were unable
to agree on the terms of disagreement.
Mr. Stabler's complaint alleged desertion
and cruel treatment. Boms interest was
created by the effort to knock the com
plaint out with a strong cross-bill; bnt
the court finally took the case nnder ad
visement, decreeing this evening that the
separation between husband and wife is
legalized and that the two children shall
be left in the custody of the mother, the
community property to I* act aside for
A decree of divorce was granted to Jas
per Mickleson from his wife, Elizabeth
6. Micklason, on a well-sustained plea of
cruelty and desertion.

Inil and protector, Owen H. Applsgate,

Lydla A. Walsh came .orer from Hte
veos county to sack liberation from mar
iul relations with Michael Walsh who,
site says, ie a dissipated, cruel, hard
hearted scalawag, unfit for toe compan
ionship of womankind. From the evi
dence submitted, the court thought so,
too, and Lydia obtained the relief she
Another somewhat interesting case
originally was that of Mrs. Cleo Parker
against Hailie F. Parker; bat the contest
has been on the road between here snd
Seattle si long that the luster of the
romantic element of the case was slightly
travel-worn when tbe case wss presented
for final adjustment. The fair applicant
.for a legal decree of relief came nearly
confusing ber case in an instance or two
by confiding to friends ber future pur
pose ; but the embarrassment was finally
overcome and Cleo got the decree.
The case of C. E. Hall vs. Lyman M.
Hall was called today. Desertion is
charged against the untordly lord.
Albertie Turnbnll vs. Andle Turnbull,
in which the wife complained of cruel
treatment and desertion, resulted in the
court's awarding the plaintiff a decree.
There is no rivalry between the famous
South Dakota colony and Yakima, how
ever. When husband and wife can't
live together peacefully and profitably it
is conceded that the laws of the state and
society sre better rubserved by lawful
separation than by an unsuccessful at
tempt to maintain relations which neither
respects and which are equally unsatis
factory to both.
Two Finny Men.—A very unsatisfac
tory audience assembled at Mason's opera
bouse on Monday night last to greet Fair
child & Woodruff in their entertainment
in «hich wit, humor and pathos were tbe
predominating features- It was evident
the moment the. curtain was rung up
that a great many of those pn sent were
unaccustomed to refined humor, clear-cut
wit and sole-touching pathos. I.< p Fair
chilii is well known in educational and
magazine circles in the northwest, while
among newspaper men and commercial
travelers Press Woodruff enjoys a flatter
ing degree of fame. Both men are young
and talented and are 18-caret entertain
ers, whether on the stage or in ordinary
business and social life. There was no
suggestion of monotony in the entertain
ment tbe other night. Lee Fairchild is
funny, serious and eloquent in turn. His
effort shows a modest desire to conceal
the humor In his work, so serious is he in
his fonniness; while Press Woodruff
couldn't be serious if he'd try. He is a
happy-go lucky, romping, rollicking boy,
so cbockfull of mental negatives of ludi
crous situations and funny take-offs that
his audience loughs when he begins, for
it teems to know intuitively that it will
have a big task to keep up with the jolly
jester as" he proceeds. Faircbild and
Woodruff are a happy combination. Suc
cess awaits them, for they are both capa
ble and ambitious. We are sorry for
those who didn't hear them on Monday
Dkatii or Miss Barker.—Miss Florence
Barker, who has been ill with consump
tion about cix months, peacefully parted
with earthly trouble last evening at her
mother's residence in this city. Kind
friends and grief-worn relatives tenderly
ministered to tbe patient sufferer's wants
till the last summons came bidding her
to accept the reward of a pure, useful and
gentle life. Miss Barker was a favorite
in a large circle of acquiantances, her
gentleness of manner, goodness of heart
and purity of soul earning for her the
sincerest friendship of those who knew
her. Her mother, Mrs. L. J. May, and
two brothers reside in this city. Funeral
service will be held at the' Christian
church at 2 o'clock tomorrow, Friday,
The 25th anniversary of the A. O. U.
W. was celebrated last evening by a liter
ary, social and musical entertainment at
the society's hall. About two hundred
members and inyited guests assembled to
hear an cxc.ell.it program, opened by an
instructive address from Recorder Spain.
He was followed by E, F. White in a fine
solo, Miss Edith Spain in an instrumen
tal solo, Nye Taggard in a well rendered
recitation, and F. D. Eshelman in a pa
thetic song, the whole being interspersed
with excellent music by a select team
from Yakima's band and followed by a
splendid lunch of chicken, ham sand
wiches, cakes, hot coffee, Ac. It was a
very enjoyable affair.
Ruby Jackson, the child-wife of the
horse thief now in the penitentiary, re
fused to recognize Archie McKay, Jack
son's partner in horse-stealing, when put
on tbe witness stand in Tacoma the other
day to testify against him. McKay was
consequently released. It has developed
since that McKay was a former suitor for
the buxom Ruby's heart, and now, since
Jackson is in the pen, she has foresworn
all affection for him and will obtain a
divorce and marry her former lover.

N«w Boat, Tiibsi Mis, Out Snao.—
W. H. Chapman, Dr. W. 11. Hare and
H. A. Uriffin left yesterday morning for
points down the Yakima river inCapt.
Chapman's new boat, all equipped with
munitions of war and other necessary pro
visions for a few •"*>••' outing and hunt-
Ing. Dncln and chickens are the game
they yearn (or most and it is safe to guess
that they will bag all they can comfort
ably reach home with. Being among the
crack gunners of the valley the result of
their exploit will be awaited with some
interest. They will also make the trial
trip in Capt. Chapman's new boat, the
only on <of any consequence now on the
river, and probably they will find occa
aion to christen it ere they return —Latkr
— Vtni, ridi, rici, or words to that effect.
The little boat was safely launched in
thr turbulent Yakima, its precious cargo
of provisions, equipments, munitions of
war and human freight arranged aboard
and away the little craft went over riffles
and rocks, snags and miniature Niagaras,
through whirlpools and into driftwood
until the panicky occupants of the boat
were dizzy from sheer fright at the record
smashing time they were making, as
well as from dodging overhanging tree
boughs, drifting ambush and—other
causes. Becoming accustomed to this
experience, however, they fell to enjoy
ing it in Alpairara fashion, with Capt.
Chapman as boatman, in which capacity
he became «o adept as to try to avoid the
cataracts that covered the entire width
of the river, by going around them.
Finally the captain espied a snag in the
stream below and called his companions'
attention to the skill with which he
could ship clear of it. Mr. Qrlffin, how
ever, could see two snags, while Dr.
Hare, after a moment's investigation, de
clared that he could discern no less than
a dozen. At this juncture the party fell
to mutual speculation as to the number
of snags actually in sight and while thus
engaged, the cumber increasing so rapidly
that there appeared to be nothing short
of a good sized timber claim "directly in
the course of the boat, the little craft was
suddenly brought to a standstill by
striking the only Bnag in the river, ker
plunk, broadside, overturning the boat
and dumping the occupants into twenty
feet of raging water— overcoats, dinner
jugs, milk bottles and all. Now, when
the unfortunate adventurers needed a
snag apiece, it was not difficult to dis
cover that there was only one in the
river -and the manner in which those
three sportsmen clung to that solitary
snag and, with shivering frame and seri
ous face, eyed each other in awful silence,
Bave violent, spasmodic breathing, was
sufficiently amusing to cause the stupid
crow and nervous magpie to mock them
with uncouth <■»*• in a neighboring hazel
grove, while, great flocks of big, fat mal
lards sailed about them as if half-decided
to alight in the same whirlpool
with the unfortunate victimsof the wreck.
But the situation was actually serious, for
the current raged more wrathfully, the
water grew colder and the men less anx
ious to tarry. Being good swimmers,
however, they finally reached the shore,
minus their equippage, leaving the little
craft to scurry down the river st its own
sweet will, snags or no snags. When the
party got to town they claimed that they
really did get a "duck" apiece, but they
have since admitted that they weren't
looking for that kind of game. Nothing
daunted, however, they left again this
evening for a continuation of the perilous
expedition, promising to return on Sun
day—if not sooner.
Skipped by Moonlight—lt is safe to
say that the amusement goers of this city
will receive with much satisfaction the
announcement that on next Monday
evening, October 30th, the famous
laughter producing farcical comedy,
"Skipped by the Light of the Moon" will
be presented for the first time in Yakima,
at the opera house by Fowler and War
mington's original company of comedians.
This play is so well known throughout
the country that it Is almost needless to
comment on it. It has long held its place
as being one of the most amusing of stage
creations, and with two comedians so full
of vitality and humor as Eddie Shayne
and Budd Ross at the head of the cast
almost any kind of a play with almost
any kind of support would be sure to take;
but with this unique combined satire,
burlesque and farce, and a whole com
pany of -.'lever people, it becomes simply
irresistable. "Skipped" is not only
"very, very funny," but partakes of the
nature of a surprise party. People who
were used to settle down decorously after
two or three laughs attbe average comedy
are constantly surprised into roar after
roar of merriment by new bursts of bright
humor or burlesque, until they begin to
grasp hysterically and look appealingly
to the stage for protection against the
steady bombardment of fun. The play is
simply one of the maddest,wildest farcical
invention*, ever seen on the stage, and in
making people laugh fulfils its wbole

that the only explanation for it is the
failure of farmers to raise chickens enough
to supply- the demand for eggs at a good
figure and splendid profit. It has been
impossible for two weeks to buy a dozen
eggs in North Yakima, so far as the
writer knows—and he confesses to having
made several industrious efforts to aser
tain if there were any to be had. At 26
cents a dozen there is a One profit in eggs
and that there Is a dearth of that excel
lent commodity in the local market just
now is cause for amazement. The local
dealers are shipping a few from the
Sound, but not enough to supply the de
mand. There is a fortune in the egg
business for some energetic poulterer who
knows bow to car* for his flocks.
