Still Another Coburn Man. Editor Daily World: j The step you have taken regard ing the election of a new member of | the school board is pleasing at lea^t 'to one of your readers. It seems to me that Mr. Coburn, who has had ; experience in the school room, is a clever and cultured gentleman and ! has no children of his own, would make an ideal member of the board lof education of Wenatchee.

The employees state that this often [results in a violation of the recent law limiting the number of hours per day which railroad companies may | require their crews to remain on | duty. If the request of the petitioners be granted this will mean an addition Of about twenty-four men and their fa milies to Wenatchee's population. KEEP THE KIDNEYS WELL. Health is Worth having, and Some Wenatchee People Know Mow to Save It. I Many Wenatchee people take their lives in their hands by neglecting I the kidneys when they know these jorgans need help.

MYSTIC CARGO COMES TONIGHT Special Train from Leavenworth.— Incense and Toi-.i-Toins Will Overcome Candidates. ! Ex:ra po'ice, easy-riding patro! wagons and cracked ice is in readi ness for handling the "Oriental Hu mltiators" tonight. A special train is due about six o'clock, bearing sev eral score of humiiiuted and soon-to be hum hied spirits from and Cashmere. j They will be met at the station by [a delegation of proud and haughty Wenatchee candidates, who will es cort them up this city's gaily illum ined asphalt boulevards to the Eagle Club rooms, where a stupendous gas tronomic gorge will await them, j Fathomless mystery obscures the humbling process which will be ap plied tonight, but it is understood i that proud spirits will be broken, stiff necks limbered and the various i candidates be made to feel their in | finitessimal insigniflcan.ee in the uni ; verse. The Great and Only Pervad ing Presence will eventually elevate the completely flabbergasted and en dow them with the Occult Oriental Eye, amid a conflagration of Chinese Incense and the furious beating of Tom-Toms. Chop suey and rats will be served al fresco. therefore I am vitally interested, and have had ample opportunity during the past few years to notice the fa voritism bestowed upon children of the members of the school board. It is certainly unjust to other capable and worthy scholars to see special attention paid a child of the "direc tor" and to have that child pushed on a grade past the one he should by merit be in. By all means urge Mr. Coburn to accept the office. ONE MUCH INTERESTED. AT THE THEATER j It is safe to state that the people of Wenatchee do not realize what a wonderful entertainment is in store for them at the Wenatchee theatre the balance of this week. The title of the piece may be mis leading to some. "The Passion Play" preaches the wonderful story of Christ from his birth to the cruci fixion, and is shown by the most beautiful pictures ever exhibited any where. This has been accomplished by the expenditure of thousands of dollars. The pictures are repro duced from the religions festival enacted every ten years in Oberam ergau by the Bavarian peasants. An organ recital by Mrs. Ed. Ferguson of sacred music and the singing of "Rock of Ages" and "The Holy City" by Miss Faun Wells furnishes an ed ucational entertainment thai; is a rare treat. Try our twobit dinner at the Gem Cafe.*** Sensation at Loomis. A ma., and two dogs passed the office in a bunch Saturday. It was the largest crowd collected together at any one time during the winter, and we rushed out to take in the excitement. The man wore knicker bockers with a very meagre exposure of calf to the weather, and the dogs were chasing up the legs, mistaking them for bones. —Palmer Mountain Prospector.

QUINCY NEWS S The Quincy valley was visited with a fine rain Monday night and on Tuesday, which though not need ed very badly, will help moisten the ground, and "the more the merrier." The farmers, without exception are well pleased with the outlook for the coming season as regards their wheat crop. Right around Quincy the farmers are at work on their fields preparing for their spring sowing, and south of Frenchman Hills many of the farmers have already sown their spring wheat. ; While around Quincy there was no winter to speak of, yet there was less ! south of the above named hills, and |it will not be long before the far- I mers near town will be using their drills. One bright, sunny day is succeeding the other, and the pre diction is that the spring has opened iv earnest. Those of the farmers who had in fall wheat have already a stand many inches high, the long, open fall allowingjthe grain to grow almost too much, and with the mild winter, and !om of moisture, the fail wheat will make a crop, it is predicted, in spite of anything. it is gratifying to learn that dur ing the recent panic Eastern Wash ington weathered the gale the best of any place in the west, and among the best of any part in the United States. Its farmers have been more ter. It is also gratifying to know that the future is brighter here than it is almost anywhere else in the sates. The east has been suffer ing from heavy winter storms and other disasters, and on the co.ist, which d< pends to a great extent on its lumbering industries, the mills are. one by one, being shut do«a. and men being thrown out of em ployment. This is also affecting the merchants who are laying off clerks. Eastern Washington, with its mild winter, early spring, plenty of moist ure, no storms, no famines, and with Al prospects. Does it not seem good to live in such a place? In compliance with a law passed at the last legislature Superintend ent E. F. Elliott will hold a school directors' meeting at Quincy on the 29th. This will be an opportunity for everybody in general and school officers in particular, to get better informed upon school matters. All friends of the common school are cordially invited. H. B. Dewey, assistant state su perintendent, will be present, and will discuss topics of vital impor tance. There will be a question box at the close of each half day session. Superintendent Elliot would be much pleased to see a good attend ance at this meeting. C. H. Furrer disposed of the stock and fixtures of his bakery, known as the City Bakery and Restaurant, this week to Mr. Edward Crockett, of Spokane, who has taken posses sion. Mr. and Mrs. Furrer have tak en up their abode in Mr. Peter's for mer residence, next to the German church, preparatory to moving onto their homestead in a short time. In leaving their business Mr. and Mrs. Furrer desire to extend their sin cere thanks to all their patrons who helped make their business a suc cess, and in turn wish unbounded prosperity to all those who had dealings with them. They would further express their wish for their customers patronage to be continued with Mr. Crockett, the new proprie tor, who comes well recommended. He may be known to some of our Lind residents, having conducted a bakery and restaurant in that city for some time, and being a first-class baker will, no doubt, give the best satisfaction. J E. A. Brown and S. G. Scheuerle I had their third round in the legal I field Monday. The case was first ! tried in Quincy, and was for a deb: j owed Brow n by a farmer, who had I Scheuerle plead his case. Brown | lost through technicality. Thj 'case was then taken to Winchester, | where Brown lost again. Then this ; week it went up against Ephrac.i, j where Brown won. There is now a j possibility of the case going before jthe superior court. The amount in volved is but a few dollars. Xow, if some of our old bachelors will just pay a little attention we j would like to say we can give them la dead straight tip on one of the j most generous and best-hearted young ladies to be found anywhere, and she lives risrht in town. We have the goods to prove our state ments. When we returned to our office one day recently, from a short absence, we found on our doorsten a big paper sack of lemons and an other of eggs. Talk about generos ity; guess we know. That's not saying that the lemons were a little over-ripe, and the eggs a little over ripe, too; but it shows us the girl's heart was in the right place.
