BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 111. NO. 263. A Very Rich Man Says! 'The American people are prodigal, and our extravagance will have to be paid for by some one. People are taking advantage of prosperity, such as has never been excelled in this country, to be wasteful "and extravagant. We are not saving up for the rainy day, for the time of need." How is it with you? Are you saving and creating a fund which will work for you when you can no longer work for yourself? Your common sense tells you that it is better to Save Your Money Now even at a sacrifice, if necessary, than to want or be dependent upon others in your old age. But saving is only half your duty. You must invest your savings wisely. An ideal form of investment is a Certificate of Deposit in the Col umbia Valley Bank of Wenatehee. These certificates are issued for denosits of one dollar and upwards. They bear 4 per cent in terest payable semi-annually or annually, are negotiable, good as collateral security and can be renewed at interest periods.

WILL SUE PAPER FOR LIBEL President of Brewster Hunk Says Ho Will Bring Action for Damages. J. E. Ostby, of the defunct state bank at Brewster, will sue the Brew ster Herald for libel, according to a | report printed by the Twisp News: Mr. Ostby was president of the Citizens' State Bank of Brewster, which failed in the flurry last fall. Regarding the failure of the bank and the collection of Mr. Ostby with same, the Brewster Herald has com mented at length, making several ac cusations quite offensive to Mr. Ostby. In view of this condition of affairs, : Mr. Ostby has decided to brins; a libel action against the paper, papers in ! which suits are nnw prepared and will probably be filed tomorrow. i The purpose of the gentlemen's visit, here was not made known. Judging from appearances, Mr. Ostby feel confident that he will be exonerated from all blame for the failure of the bank at his trial, which comes up at next term of court, the fore part of May. Decision Reversed. The supreme court has reversed the findings in the Spokane supe rior court in the case of the German- American State bank vs. the Spo kane Columbia River Railroad & Na vigation company. Suit was brought to recover on a noie and the lower court granted a judgment to the plaintiff. The supreme court finds that the collateral would have s< '.d for $2,500 more than was due, and gives the defendant credit for that amount. Crop Conditions. ! Fruit.—Fruit has apparently not suffered injury from frosts and the horticultural outlook is not only ex cellent, but the prospects for increas ed returns from any previous year is practically assured. Returns from the commissioner of horticulture show continued enormous expansion in orchard areas, a condition that has been prominent for several years, 1 and commercial estimates based upon general averages for the state show that Washington's fruit crop, when the total present acreage has come into bearing, will be in excess of $.".0,000,000 annually, with a practi cal assurance of exceeding the re trrns from the cerea! crop within ; the next decad".

Foreign Sells >lorningsi<7c Property, clearances continue along moderate lines, and remaining stocks are being gradually reduced, so tnat the op portunity for extensive operations will probably not present itself dur ing the balance of the season. The falling of considerable moist ure in the grain belt has made a bet ter showing for the coming crop in this section, and while it is not pos sible at this time to make even an approximate prediction as to the har vest, the preliminary conditions are good, and with a normal amount of rainfall during the balance of the season another bumper crop would be assured. More attention is being given to the forthcoming harvest by the trade, and early arrangements are said to have been made for new crop loading. The tonnage situation is a comparatively weak one, how ever, and exporters are not likely to load up to any considerable extent under existing conditions. — West Coast Trade. SCORES A GREAT SUCCESS If mil Svtioul Pla> Ore of the Be 4 Ever (iiven in the City. i Before i) good house at she We |natehee the:: ire last Saturday night, i lor the second time "Charley's | Aunt" was presented to an appre i ciative audience. I'nder the direc tion of Miss Olga Todd of the High School, the play had been prepared, which for dramatic art has probably not been surpassed before by ama teurs in this city. Lytpan Shotwell, as ' Charley's Aunt," made a decided hit. "Char ley's Aunt" was a millionaire lady from Brazil. Ralph Shotwell was " Charley," who. with Fred Ellis as bis chum ' Jack" were attending col •ege. On the reception of a telegram to the effect that Charley's Aunt was coming the boys prepared a recep tion in which their sweethearts were invited. The latter were represents 1 by Zelma Reeves and Anna Sumner, under lh : names of Kitty and Amy SpetHgue. On receiving another telegram to the effect that "Charley's Aunt" could not come it was decided to in duce their friend Lord Babberly, represented by Lyman Shotwell to take the part of Charley's aunt. The assumed aunt struck up an acquain tance with Jack's father, Major Chesney, who was represented by Roy Smith, and she received ad vances also from Old Spettigue, which part was played by Thayer ! Littlefield. Later on the real aunt, represent ed by Edith Milner, appeared on the scene. i Replay was given Saturday by special request, the first time being presented some time ago. I The two plays netted $143. Sixty 'dollars of this has been set aside to ' pay the expenses of the athletic team to Pullman, and the balance has been divided between the girls and boys' athletic associations. Miss Todd has received much fa i vorable comment for the exception lal manner in which the play was rendered. RENDERS OPINION I ON JUDGESHIP Direct Primary Law Interpreted in Reference to Okanogan and Ferry Counties. Although the direct primary law makes no specific provision for a noi-partisan judiciary in counties where but one superior court judge is to be held the attorney general's office has advised Charles P. Bennett of Republic that the provision of the law should be extended to all judi cial districts even when two or more counties are included in the district.

At the election held last Saturday to decide upon the question of whether or not the city limits should be extended to include that territory I lying between sth and 9th streets land between Miller street and Colum ] bia River, by a vote of 23 to 11 the ; people of the north end voted against ! the proposed annexation. The vote |in Wenatchee stood 45 to 8 in favor ;of annexation. As the law requires ; that to annex territory to the city | there must be a majority in each dis- I trict, the proposed extension was de jfeated.

At least this is the rumor that is going the rounds of her friends today. Miss Parker has been teaching in the schools of Wenatehee for the past two years, and during that time has proven her self to be one of the most popular instructors now in the city. No announcement has as yet been made by the present incumbent, V C. Bowersox, but it is generally un derstood that he will be a candidate for a second term. A. G. Bowie, of Chelan Falls, is also in the field, and is said to have a good following in that section of the county. No announcements of candidacy from any have as yet been filed. It the candidacy of Miss Parker be comes an assured fact she will be the second of her sex to come om a candidate for this office. Two years ago Miss Pauline Jacocg of lakeside was iat> nominee on the democratic ticket and proved to be a v. ry popular one.
