THEY SAY I That the Littooys left for their new home in Idaho. Mrs. Littooy has asked the World to say "good-bye" for her through this column,—good-bye to those friends she has not been able to see. I And the Littooys wish to thank the tradespeople of the city for their I courtesy to them during their resi dence here. ! The World wishes these estimable j people happiness and success in their j new location at Mountain Home. That Forest Superintendent Shel | ler, formerly stationed at the forestry ; office in this city, has been succeeded ;by Charles H. Flory. ! It is rumored that Superintendent Sheller's extravagant expense ac , counts and his undue fondness for , "Shampagny water" led to his being dismissed. I That the harbor of Topolobampo is to be improved,—all but the spell ing. That Wenatchee might profitably follow Yakima's example and keep an advertising-information bureau open at Spokane during the spring influx 00l homeseekers. I That in politics the more we see of some candidates the better we like I the man in office. I That the rumor that a well-known ex-policeman of this city is about to go to work is unfounded; it is mean to circulate such stories about a man who never did a stroke of work in his life. That the school board at Marcus, Wash., has fired Teacher Frank j Murphy because he smoked during re- ■ cess hours. Oh, Frank, you abandon-! Ed rake! That some people think the trouble i in the schools is due more to the "beefing" of fateheaded boys and the; prejudiced partisanship of blinded pa-' rents than to any other cause. i That "ABC's" letter in today's j World is worth a careful reading. Dean Priest says the students of Washington university are "girl crazy;" he ought to stand by when some of the half-grown yearling lov ers of Wenatchee strut past. j Wenatchee has a profuse crop of soul-maters and affinity finders whose affection is so all-pervading that they must show it in the highways by "laying on of hands." That Roosevelt has just transmit ted to the senate a bunch of treaties turned out by the last Hague trib unal; among them is one prohibiting explosives being dropped from bal loons. Bill Simmons and others who saw the Japanese war balloon pass over Wenatchee last fall wilt rest easier after the ratification of this treaty by the senate. The suggestion that a horticultu ral course be added to the "intake" in the local schools is a suggestion not without merit; Many of the graduates of our local brain factories will sooner or late go "back to the farm," and scienti fic fruit-growing, knowledge would mke it easier to buy baby's shirt. I That some people laugh at a dog for chasing its own tail when similar exercise would do them a world of good.

The untimely death of a horse ani the decline of the other is the cause of a law suit now started in the Su perior Court in which Clarence Wheeler, of Medford. is plaintiff and W. E. Daniel is defendant. Before leaving here for Medford Wheeler sold a team of horses to Daniel, and took his promissory note for $400. Afterwards, and before the note came due, one of the ani mals died. Te other, Daniel says, was not possessed of a particularly robust constitution and suffered a continual decline until it was finally unable to get up, af r er lying down, without the assistance of Daniels or his neighbors. It was eventually shot. Wheeler says that several months ago, when the transfer of the team was made, both horses were in per fect condition, and were generally re garded in the community as excellent animals. The action will be tried at the next term of Superior Court. POPULAR MAN TAKES A WIFE George Farwell and Mrs. Mary A. Benson Were Quietly Married on Thursday Night. George Farwel! is married.

Seattle, Feb. 27. —At a college fraternity last night, Dean Priest, speaking of Washington university, declared: "This institution has gone girl-crazy. "I am not opposed to coeducation but you must leave the girls alone more than you do. You can't even go home to lunch without having a girl with you nowadays. It is impos sible to cultivate the most virile man hood if you have with you all the time —girl, girl, girl. "Coeducation is desirable, but it must not be overdone. There should be times when men should be alone and girl are obnoxious." Mrs. D. J. Switzer and daughter Clara and son Robin departed Mon day morning for Wenatchee, to join Mr. Switzer, and will reside there for the present.—Chelan Leader. Have your own water system.
