Kootenai Valley for Fruit.
John B. Chase of Troy, who is
attending the teachers' institute,
handed us a Wealthy auple from
the orchard of Oscar Colberg of
Bull lake, with the request to sam
ple it for its edible quality. This
is' the apple which swept the boards
at the state fair at Helena for Ist
prize against 27 competitors, and
we can truthfully say that it is the
article. We all know the Troy
district is extra good for fruit rais
ing and this prize winner shows
that both sides of the Kootenai in
our neighboring district are equal
lyv adapted to the raising of fruit
and will take a back seat to no
place in the Pacific northwest.

Tried Newspaper Stuat.
Phil Eberhart of Wallace, Ida.,
was a visitor in Libby last Satur
day, coming up from Leonia,where
he is visiting his father. Mr. Eber
hart is a mining broker in the
Coeur d'Alene metropolis, and pro
moted, the deal with the Pacific
Smelting & Mining company, a
transaction which meant so much
and is now doing so much for the
mining interests of the Libby dis
trict. Phil is not a stranger in the
west end of the county and the
writer remembers him in the palmy
days of the Yahk as an active force
in that community. We hate to
tell it on him, but after we had re
treated from the camp with a stake
we hied our gladsome way to Spo
kane and engaged in the newspaper
business. It was the first time
Phil had ever been up against the
real thing. As we were no mil
lionaires-not yet-the game was
too swift in. the city by the falls,
and while the writer lingered awhile
lbnger Phil beat a hasty retreat to
the lead belt and followed his natu
ral bent in mines and mining. He
now swings mining deals as natu
rally as we sling type. And thus
we are both coming into our own.
Phil says he has never liked Spo
kane since that strenuous winter
and we don't know as we can
blame him, seeing what became of
his introductory experience in that
particular bailiwick. But we both
came to a simultaneous conclusion,
that Spokane is a dandy place-to
spend money in.
