It should bo proclaimed from the housetops that registry is an impera- 1 live duty of all who reside in incor- ' porated cities, aud if a citizen iutends to change his ward (precinct) he must 1 be registered iu'.the new district3o days before election.

He lias been with Dr. Woodard long enough to grub out molars and he now seeks instruction in restoring decaying grinders to their primitive state of usefulness, and in counterfeiting Na ture's work when "patent" teeth have to be substituted. He will probably be absent till Spring. Sylvester Camp No. 8, gives a " Smoker" at K. of f. hall, to-morrow night, at which it is expected the Camp of Shelton will be present. The entertainment is not, as its nature would seem to indicate a shrine at which the incense of tobacco is the only propitiatory offering, but one at which that old-time' " stand by" the festive clam will occupy the post of honor, and his delightful flavor recall fond memories of the past. Wednesday night the residence of A. J. Falknor caught fire from a burn ing match carelessly thrown behind a sofa which fell into the drapery and instantly set it on fire. The flames were extinguished without much difficulty, but not before they had de stroyed a picture of McKinley, which hung on the wall. This seems omin- OUP. It is only saints who pass through fiery ordeals unscathed. It has always been plain that Mack was not a saint, and this incident strength ens the belief that he is a phenominal sinner. Oly says that when Eastside resi dents had their nocturnal slumbers disturbed by the ineloiluous tinkle of the cowbell, they arose in their wrath and night-gowns and proceeded at once to remove the "sounding brass" from bossy's neck and safely deposit it in the bay. So far the residents were plainly in the lead, but what was their consternation, the next night, to hear the same familiar sound as the cows' cropped the herbage on the lawn. New bells had been bought and were hung on bossy's neck by stout chains' and united withalock and key to guard against removal. Now the residents are clubbing together to purchase a burglar's complete outfit, including tiles and jimmies and saws and "can-! openers,'' with which to remove the j ollendiog sleep-breakers. The result '< is awaited with much interest. The county tax levies for the several funds this year aggregate a little over eight mills, a slight reduction from that of last year. The levy, in detail, is as follow s: Mills Current expense fund $2 75 Railroad funding bond interest 70 Indebtedness fund 2 00 General road and bridge fund 1 50 County school fund 10 Cunding bonds, sinking fund 75 Fourt house bonds, sinking fund... 75 Soldiers' relief fund 05 Total levy $S (50 The valuation is made on a levy of 14,813,413, as equalized by the State board, a reduction of half a million from the county assessment. The levy last year was 8.7 Jesse Murphy returned from Nome Saturday night, after a season's opera tions at trading in that inhospit able region. Notwithstanding tlio adverse reports that have been re ceived from time to time from that di&trict be still eeems to have faith in its golden resources, and announces his determination of returning soon as he perfects some business arrange ments here. He says that while he ha 9 not amassed a fortune, he has done reasonably well, and he thinks the same may be said of the other prospectors and speculators from tills place in the northern wilds. He was a spectator of the storm on the 12th which destroyed much property at Nome, and says the raging of the ele ments was a spectacle whose grandeur can never be effaced from the memory of all who saw it. From his descrip tion it was a Galveston visitation on a small scale, but quite horrible enough to fill the stoutest heart with dismay. Tiie Capital Hill Euchre Club has reorganized for the Winter's play— made a " new deal," as it were. As usual, however, the " knaves" will be prime good fellows and often times " clubs" will be found effective in the mimic combat. Occasionally tome venturesome fellow will be impelled to "go it alone," although bright eyes and winsome smiles are ever ready and anxious to " assist." Then, probably, in retaliation, she will peremptorily " order up" her partner, or " pass" when he mo»t earnestly desires her to name " trump." And it will be ob served, in the progress of the game, that there is a constant chance for a player to get " euchered," unless he has a " bower" or two and the " joker" up liia sleeve. It is a game in which "knavery" succeeds, and even " hearts" and " diamonds" are at a greater dis count than the Republicans figure out the silver dollar to be, unless you can make them " trumps," when, like everything else in temporary favor, they rake in the " tricks" and score a victory. 33 Remember II HOD. Cbas. S. VOORHEES H <► < > < ► WILL SPEAK IN < I 31 OLYMPIA THEATER 3 3 * ► WEDNKBDAV NIOHT. < F <> < > Some Fact* About Shingles. Mr. Hendrickson, the roof-painter, is treating the top of Olympia Theater to a coating of his patent roof-paint and shingle-preserver. Experience has demonstrated, on this building, that sawed shingles are not as durable as the old-fashioned shaved shingle. Besides being con siderably more cross-grained, the rough surface left by the saw retains a dampness that has led to speedy de cay. The same owner has a building cov ered with sawed shingles and nailed with the formerly used "cut" nails, which has been in use thirty-five years and is still in a fair condition, while the theater roof, which has been in use but ten years, requires extensive repairs. One feature of its rapid de cline is peculiar. High winds ac tually blow many shingles from the roof, and on examination it was found that the nails had rusted off between the shingle and the sheeting, the heads of nails, in all cases, still remaining in the shingles when they fell to the ground. This result was attributed, by many people, to the fact that the shingle-bolts had been rafted in salt water, and they thought that a chemical action of tho saline deposit in the fibers of the shingle when exposed to the air created a corrosion of the iron. Another expla nation was supported by no less an authority than the Scientific A mertcan, which stated that the short-life of modern shingle roofs was due princi pally to the use of wire, instead of "cut," nails; that there WHS some chemical change imparted to the iron in manufacture of wire nails which im paired their life of service when ex posed to certain conditions. It stated that so universal was this experience, and so certain the cause, that the cut nail factories had started up for the exclusive manufacture of shingle nails. The shaved cedar shingle, laid with cut four-penny nails, experience has demonstrated, will last a life-time. The pine shingle will last quite as well. Shingles were removed from a building in Maine, a few weeks ago, which had passed through a con tinuous service of sixty-fivej'years, and were still serviceable in shielding the household they had protected so long from the most severely inclement weather. * R. M. Highland, a printer and member of the Typographical Union, of Seattle, was found dead in bed at the Tacoma City Jail last Eriday morning where he had been placed for safe keeping. He had been suffering from excesses and was very nervous.

Prof, Hawes furnishes the following figures showing the growth of our city schools the past decade: 1890-1)1—Boys, 429; girls, 445; to tal, 874. 1891-92—Boys, 4fi7; girls, 498; to tal, 965. 1892-93—Boys, 407; girls, 480; to tal, 947. 1893-94—No figures. ta1894-95—Boys, 443 ; girls, 440; to 1, 883. 1895-96—No figures. ta1896-97—Boys, 331; girls, 375; to 1, 706. 1897-98—Boys, 336; girls, 382; to tal, 718. ta 1898-99—Boys, 318; girls, 403; to- I, 721. 1899-00 Boys, 343; girls, 429; to tal, 772. 1900-01 (first month) —Boys, 376; girls, 450; total, 826. _ The average daily attendance in the city schools for the years of the last decade has been as shown in the ac companying table: 1890-91—Boys, 245; girls, 256; to tal. 501, 1891-92—Boys, 316; girls, 302; to tal, 618. 1892-93—Boys, 303; girls, 294; to tal, 597. 1893-94—No figures. 1894-95—Boys, 327; girls, 330; to tal, 657. 1895-96—No figures. 1896-97—Boys, 309; girls, 338; to tal, 647. 1897-89—Boys, 290; girls, 341; to tal, 631. 1898-99—Boys, 280; girls, 351: to tal, 631. 1899-00 Boys, 299; girls, 378; to tal 677. 1900-1 (one month) —Boys, 334; girls, 405; total, 739. From these tables it will be seen that though the enrollment was in 1890-91 and also the two following years greater than at present the aver age daily attendance is now 233 greater than in 1890-91; 121 greater than in 1892-93, and 142 greater than in 1893-94. This condition can be explained by regarding the population of the city in the first years of the decade as transient and that of these latter days as relatively permanent. Besides this consideration it is also true that the percent. of ( attendance has increased from 93.46 in 1890-91 to 94.90 last year and 97.05 for the first month this year. Weekly Crop Bulletin. U. 8. Department of Agriculture lias given out the following Climate and Crop Bulletin of the Weather Bu reau, Washington Section, for the week ending Oct. Ist: During the past week, the first frosts of the season followed soon after the heavy wind storm of Sept. 22d. Light frosts occurred in different lo calities on the 24tli, 25th, 26tli and 27th. On the 25th and 26th the frosts were heavy in the more exposed localities of the western section, and killing throughout most of the eastern section. Ice formed in some locali ties. Vines of all kinds were wilted, as well as late sweet corn. The heavy wind storm of the 22d blew off a great deal of fruit in the eastern counties, particularly apples. The strength of the winds was suffi cient, in some places, to break down or overturn trees. Hops were not materially damaged by the storm, and picking is now practically completed. A few of the late yards remain unfinished. The yield is a fair one, and hop experts pronounce the quality particularly good. The weather of the past week was favorable to all farming operations that are in season. Fall wheat sowing and plowing have progressed uninter ruptedly. Pastures have greatly improved since the reeent showers. Potato digging is still in progress, with the yield oontinuing about as previously noted. The root crops are, for the most part, still in the ground. Sugar beets, in the vicinity of Fair field, Spokane county, are reported to have improved within the past month, and are said to be better than last year. Disastrous Runaway. Yesterday morning the team hitched to a Gurney cab ran away. It was standing on Percival's dock, when the driver, Geo. Poster, descended from the seat to rearrange the harness, when the horses took fright and dashed up Third street. They turned north into Main, but were going at such speed that they could not make the turn and came to a standstill against one of the large maple trees in front of the old Pacific House. The horses missed the tree but the upper part of the Gur ney was smashed almost into kindling wood. Every pane of glass was brok en. It is said the repairs will cost 1250. The steamer Hunfboldt, recently from Alaska, passed by the quaran tine station at Port Townsend, and proceeded to Seattle, but was not al lowed to land until she had gone back to Port Townsend lor inspection.
