S. P. Beecher Sells Forty Acres for
■ $14,000 —Gave $0,000 for 80
Acres Last Spring.
Last spring S. P. Beecher gave C.
Gibbs $12,000 for his eighty acre
ranch four miles east, of Leaven
worth. Some five acres were plant
ed to orchard years ago. There wa I
also about ten acres of young trees,
some bearing and some to come in
later. It was 40 acres off this tract;
that Mr. Beecher sold a short time
ago to eastern parties for $14,000.
Two years ago S. P. Beecher sold
a 40-acre tract in the same vicinity,;
highly, improved, to C. S. Craig, fcr ,
$6,000. Two weeks ago a man cane
aloug and offered Mr. Craig $ir.,oro:
for his 40-acre ranch, but the offer
was turned down. The fruit land in j
the vicinity of Peshastin, which is
nearly four miles distant from Le i- J
venworth, is considered to be the;
best adapted to apple growing of any J
in the state. Many, in fact, most of ■
the many Chelan county prize win
ning apples come from this vicinity.

Pittsburg, Dec. 6.—A terrific and
disastrous explosion occurred today
in mines Nos, 6 and 8, of the Con
solidation Coal Mines at Monogah,
W. Va. I
Mine superintendent Malon says at
least 500 men are entombed. i
it is believed a majority of the
entombed men were killed.
The bodies of throe miners have
been recovered near the mouth of
mine No. 6. j
.Mine No. 0 is located on the east
side of the Mononghaela river and!
Mine Xo. Sou the west side.
How the explosions occurred sim
ultaneously in both mines can not j
be explained at this time.
All is confusion at the scene of the
disaster and definite news is meager.
The explosion was heard for eight
Wilbur Little Clears $4,000 from
Six Acres of Orchard Trees
Six Years Old.
j T. A. Walton, formerly of this city
but now of Seattle, is in the valley
.today, and thinks he will move back
to Wenatchee next summer to live.
Mr. Walton one year ago sold a good
home in the north part of town to
Wilbur Little. He received for the
six acres $12,000 or $2,(700 per acre.
This was regarded as a high price
at the time, but Mr. Little bought
the place for a home and was satis
fied that i: would net him a good
per cent on his investment.
The six-year-old orchard of six
acres this year netted him $4,000
after paying the charges of picking
packing and marketing the fruit, or,
33 1-3 per cent on his investment.

ON PIE BITERS
There was a pie social at the M.
E. church last Friday evening. For,
$ome reason we were not notified
of the coming event, and hence fail
ed to mention it in our last issue.
However, there was a good crowd
oat and a stack of pies was con-1
sumed, much to the delectation of
the consumers and the enlargement;
of the church fund. Speaking of pies
reminds us of the genius who earn
ied the reputation of being the great
j American pie biter. Somewhere in
j the back ages we ran against the in
dividual who claimed this honor. He
ihad a protruding set of grinders that
j looked like the teeth of a hay rake,
jtnd the opening in his face that pass
ed for a mouth resembled a barn
door. He claimed that he could
bfce through twenty-two pies, and
at the time we mention he was in a
very depressed state of mind. He
stated that he had just returned from
Canada and had lost a sure thing bet.
He had staked $."00 whh a willing'
taker that he could bite through 13 j
pies and had lost the money. As |
almost twice as many was an easy
nip for him a sympathetic bystand-,
er inquired how it happened he fell.
down on such a light task. He do-;
lorously stated that the blasted Ca- j
nadians were vile and rotten sports j
as they rung in a tin jdate on him. j
We throw in the story in conjunc
tion with the report of the local pie
meet as a warning to anyone who
may aspire to winning the champion
ship as a biter to watch carefully
that they do not run up against any
such brace game as that practiced
by the shrewd Canadians. —Palmer

BE A NATION
Speaker Before Canadian Clah Says
Canada Should Unite with the
U. S. «r be Independent.
Ottawa, Dec. .">.—Addressing tho
Canadian club at Ottawa last even
ing on the future of Canada, J. S.
Ewart, XX. ('.. urged that the pres
ent position of subordination is one
that cannot last forever. Canada
must some day rise to the full dig
nity of nationhood and either alone
or in some partnership have and ex
orcise the highest powers of govern
ment. Tiie Dominion most probably
will be in one of the following posi
tions: Union with the United States;
independent republic, union with the
United Kingdom; an independent
monarchy with Canadian king and
queen; independent monarchy with
the same sovereign as United King
In Ewart's opinion the future of
Canada will seemingly be nation
nationhood, self-eontTol and political
equality with the United Kingdom
instead of subordination and subser
viency to the colonial office. If, con
cluded Ewart, this be our future,
then we will yet reach the goal aim
ed at by the late Sir John Mac Do
nald. We shall get a great British
monarchy in connection with the
British empire and under a British
king, recognizing the sovereign -if
