Concentration is the secret of suc cess. Getting everything bunched saves time and travel —Mental and physi cal. Hire's a suggestion worth consid eration. It comes from a prominent citizen, who knows what he's talking about, and it should be heard and thought over. Put the Commercial Club, the County Horticultural society, and the Fruit Growers' Association under ONE TENT. Concentrate 'em. Establish one lo cation—even if it requires the rental of a whole building: at any event, get the three institutions together. This will expedite basin ss, save time and talk, and give country people and visitors an opportunity of read ily doing business or obtaining desir ed information easily and quickly. They can find out what they want to know, or see the officer they may be seeking without delay and the neces sity of running from place to place. Barnuiu's show was big and suc cessful because it combined the things the people wanted to see. A railroad company has its different public departments, freight, passen ger, baggage and express, all under one roof—or as closely together as possible. t The Commercial Club is closely al lied with the Fruit Growers, who are in turn —for economic purposes —part and parcel of the Horticultur al Society. The sound sense and sagacity of the suggestion readily appeals to peo ple who think it over; some delay in perfecting the arrangements—on account of present leases, etc., may be unavoidable, but in selecting quarters for the various institution.-, for future occupancy, it will be well to remember the value of getting them together, or as nearly so as possible. As if the San Francisco graft mess were not malodorous enough already, the public declares it can detect a strong odor of Standard Oil about it. Telegrams from San Francisco state that the people have mobbed several Japanese restaurants, but the dispatches do not say whether the outbreak was wholly radical or gas tronomic. WHERE SHOULD IT BE MOVED TO The intended removal of the land office from Waterville to a more con venient point is still being given a great deal of publicity in the Wenat chee papers. The Wenatchee Advance came out last week with a reprint from the Leavenworth Echo which suggests that Wenatchee is the most •centrally located point in the district. This may be very true, but did this supposedly disinterested party. May or, ever stop to consider that Wenat chee and in fact nearly the entire portion of Chelan and Douglas coun ties have been thickly settled for the past ten years and that nearly every foot of government land that they possessed has been taken up, and did it ever occur to him that Okanogan is a new country with thousands of acres of government land still open to the settler. As this is a fact why should Wenatchee be entitled to the land office? Nine-tenths of the busi ness of that office from now on will come from Okanogan county and why should we not be entitled to it? Anyone familiar with the conditions would not express their desire to have the office removed to Wenatchee as that portion of the district has not a foot of valuable land left that is open to the homesteader. Brewster is the most convenient point reached in this part of the dis trict as it is at the head of naviga tion on the Columbia river, while farther up the only mode of travel is by stage, also we have more gov ernment land in this vicinity than All Aboard for Jamestown That will be the cry on September 10 when the party of young ladies from the state of Washington get aboard the special car for the big trip across the continent to the Jamestown Exposition and the oth er points of interest in the east.

Subscriber I any other section of the district. 1 We would suggest that those inter ested in the removal of the land of fice would take these facts into con sideration for the benefit of them selves as well as nearly every other j person in the district. —Brewster Herald. 000 It would be a sad blow to Mr. Hearst's feelings if a recount should show that he was a not a political martyr after all. There is considerable hesitancy on the part of the administration as to whether to institute proceedings against the Harriman railroad combi nation or not. The special attorneys who have been engaged on the case hold that such a prosecution may be legally successful. The Supreme court may at any time render a decir-ion on the law in the case that will make the success assured. Yet there is hesitation. Such a prosecution against the Harriman lines would eventually hit all the other great sys tems of the country. It would force the dissolution of the Southern sys tem, the breaking up of what is known as the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg, the disintegration of the Boston and Maine, and make the New York Central let go its hold on the Erie. It would mean a whole sale revolution of the railroad policy of the country, and would prevent the combination and cheapening of transportation that can come from the unification of several roads if th ? combination is honestly managed. The question seems to have resolved itself from a matter of law into one of public policy, and the decision of the government as to what it will do in the matter is awaited with more than ordinary interest. Latest reports from London indi cate that the Woman Suffragists are not doing anything much but suffer ing. Now if Dr. Long had been writing fish stories, there would have be n much more excuse for the president nominating him for the Ananias club. The president of the Pennsylvania gives notice that if the commuters do not like the new rates of fare on his road, they can walk. Gov. Hugheg seems determined to give New York politics the benefit of the open air treatment. Takes It Seriously. Wenatchee, June 3, 1907. Editor Daily World: Dear Sir: Having read the lonesome wail of .Miss Marriagable, and the articles •induced by it, I have come to the conclusion that the case has not yet been properly diagnosed. The girls of this town do not understand men. and the older they grow the less is their comprehension of the needs, of the masculine homo. What we want is not attention en masse, where undigestible lunch is sandwiched at unreasonable hours between the card and dance acts, but a little personal consideration con a little personal consideration between times. Certainly we eat —it would be brutal not to, after so much valuable time has been spent in preparation—but if food were the only inducement we would go to the cafe where for four bits we would be fed and at the same time have an opportunity to flirt with the girls. Companionship is what we need, and until you girls come down from your high perch and place your self on a level with us, who are forced to spend more time and thought fighting the battles of life than we can spare to study the in tricacies of social propriety, you need not expect us to make a "fuss" over you. You are too far away. When girls smash their ideals bor rowed from sentimental love stories, and get down to bed rock, and study men as they are found in life; when integrity and honesty are held in higher regard than fine clothes, a glib tongue, or a knowledge of social ; etiquette; when a man is not "cut" because he works with his hands; in : short, when girls recognize that "a man's a man for a' that," then one I man is ready to capitulate. It is not the amount of money | that would be spent showing you a I good time that staggers us. Money is !no object in Wenatchee. It grows on '■. bushes here. There is an indefinable chasm between us, and until you help us bridge the chasm, no amount of ! money (or brains) can make "two i hearts beat as one." I TOILER. BELIEVES THAT HE HAS A TITIAN St. Louis Man's $100 Investment May .Mean One Hundred Thousand i • liars. ST. LOUIS, June 3.—Edward Sells of St. Louis, believes he has identified a painting which he pur chased a year ago for less than $100 as the famous "St. Jerome," painted by Titian about 1531. No trace of the painting has been had since 1629 Setls purchased the picture from Allison K. Stewart, a St. Louis min ing engineer, to whom it was given in 1900 by a padre in the mountains of Honduras, after Stewart had given him a liberal silver offering. The painting itself shows it is very old. The canvas is handmade and filled with red clay, after the cus toms of the Renaissance period. St. Louis artists say the painting bears several marks peculiar to Titian's work. They estimated the value of the painting, if it be the original St. Jerome,' 'to be about $100,000. BARON WEDS GIRL HE WORKED IN MINKS TO WIN JOPLIX, Mo., Juno 3.—Baron Paul yon Zglitzkle of Berlin. Ger many, and Miss Helen Nicholson of this city were married at the home of the bride's parents at high noon Saturday. Miss Nicholson is the daughter of Frank C. Nicholson, a wealthy mine operator and engineer. Site met her husband in Paris a year ago while visiting in the capitals of Europe. The baron has for the past three months been working in the mines here as a spade hand, in order to become familiar with the operation of the property over which he will have control and in order to prove his worthiness of the love of the rich miner's daughter. TRAGIC KM» OF AX OLD MAS Attempts to Kill Another Then Shoots Himself on Roof of Church. Yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock A. A. Clark climbed up a lad der to the eaves of the new church, deliberately aimed a revolver at George Godfrey, who painting the roof, fired one shot at his intend ed victim, who fell uninjured to the ground, and then placed the muzzle of the gun in his own mouth, firing a shot which killed him almost instant ly . Clark's body did not fall from the roof but lay there until citizens came and removed it to the ground, j Godfrey, accompanied by Ernest Al i lender, who was engaged at carpen- Iter work inside the building, ran i down town where the matter was re -1 ported. j Clark was a man of perhaps 60 years of age. He has been here for some months past, engaged at car penter work and also filed on a homestead west of town. He was a member of the G. A. R. and the K. of P., and is reported to have been superintendent of the Midway Pleas ance, at the World's Fair in Chicago, in 1893. He came here from Wenat chee last fall in company with Geo. Godfrey, the man he tried to kill yesterday, and it was evidently over some grievance against Godfrey that he committed the rash act. The two men worked together during the early part of the year, but about the Bargains in Real Estate $15,500 B*/4 acres in 12 year old or chard. Good hous;. large barn. 4 acres of 2-year-old orchard.

Clark claimed that Godfrey had mis treated him in thi.ir transactions, and on several occasions threatened to take Godfrey's life.

But if it be carded with cootis as clothern Kembe their woole. The expression "not worth a curse" used frequently nowadays is therefore not properly profane, though it is fre quently intensified by a profane ex pletive. A Little In Doubt.
