BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 111. NO. 26d. 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 to 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 nb 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 deposits 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.

I Spokane, April 27. —Col. A. M. Dewey of Spokane, who will begin construction on July 1 on the Oka nogan Elecetric railway between Nighthawk and Brewster, Wash , ~'> miles, to be financed by English cap ital to the extent of $3,000,000, an nounces that several smelters will be built in Okanogan county, as soon as the road is completed and ready to haul ore. One will be near Blue Lake, i:i addition to which, sites at L mis and Conconnlly have been ex amined tentatively. Colonel Dewey jsaid of the smelter proposition: "There are 26 mines within a ra dius of 18 miles from the smelter | site near Blue Lak?. and these could be drawn upon for ores. The hills west of the Columbia river are filled with metals, principally copper, and ) along the line of the proposed road, and in the northern part of Okano gan county, especially, there are a number of mines now producing and several are shipping. "A representative of the indepen dent smelter interests recently made a trip of inspection over the pro posed railway line and promised the mineowners that as soon as the road is completed a plant of 200 tons ca pacity will be erected. If, after the country has opened up, it seems best to build small plants at different; places instead of building a larger! one at a central place, two more will be erected. "The smelter people at;ree to build a plant of not less than 200 tons daily capacity upon a guarantee of ores for a period of five years. That, this will be done as soon as supplies can be taken in by rail is certain, for there are mines enough to justify it. ' "The Ruby mine, near Nighthawk, jis shipping two cars of ore a djj' and several other properties in the same region, the Mountain Sheep and Nighthawk No. 1, also are shipping. The Palmer Mountain Tunnel com pany at Loom is is now installing 1' stamps, and a crew of 40 men is em ployed." Speaking of the Q. S. mine, of which he is the chief owner. Colonel Dewey said: "The Q. S. is now employing 14 men. W r e have opened a body of cop per ore, 300 feet wide, averaging i per cent copper. The company owns a power site on Salmon creek, one of the best on the stream, which may be used either for its own power or in connection with the railway com pany, from which, in that event, we would buy power."

The debate between Cashmere and Chelan schools has been postponed, : Cashmere defeated Wenatehee, and Chelan defeated Entiat, and it was ar-! ranged for Cashmere and Chelan to debate at Wenatehee next Friday night, but Cashmere says that they! can not get. ready by that time, hav tag been assigned to the affirmative' Bide of the question, they having had the negative in the previous debate. 1 Chelan feels that they are not getting j a square deal, and wants to have the debate at the time set, but Cashmere wants to get some ammunition from j the universi'y and are act ready.

GETS FANCY PRICE APPLES R. P. Wright of Chelan /Jets $2.50 and $3.00 per Box for Apples in Minneapolis. I Last December R. P. Wright of i Chelan brought three carloads of ' apples to Wenatehee, but could not find sale for them at any price. Against the advice of the shippers here he took two carloads to Minne apolis. Mr. Wright says that when he got to Minneapolis that every thing was in bad shape, the dealers had thousands of barrels of apples in storage, for which there was no : sale. He succeeded in getting a dealer to come to the cars and ex amine the apples from the Wenat |chee Valley. He was amazed, never having seen anything to compare I with them, after seeing the fruit j from this valley he had no difficulty lin selling, and he could have sold 1 a dozen more cars if he had had them. There was no dickering about the .price; he asked $2.50 per box for I the Black Ben Davis and $?> per box 1 for his Jonathan and Spitz. The j dealers willingly paid this price, and i would have given more if they had ! been asked, as they wanted those ap j pies at any price. They had noth ing to compare with them, although j they had the best apples in storage |to be had in that country. Mr. Wright says that Ben Davis 'apples will bring $2.7") per box in Minneapolis at any time, and the j better grades from $3 to $3.75. The ; cost of taking a car of apples is $225 or fifty cents a box. He figures that it cost him fifty cents a box to take ' his apples from his ranch and lay them down in Minneapolis, leaving i him a nice margin, and this at a time when he could not get 75 cents I a box for them here. Mr. Wright j intends to ship all of his next year's crop to Minneapolis, but instead of using boxes he will use barrels, as the dealers prefer barrels to boxes in that place. Up to his taking apples to Minne apolis he said that he did not find a dealer who had ever received any apples from this valley. WENATCHEE 08 TH : LEGISLATURE X< wcomer Had His Choice and Cho c the Former.—Locates Here. • Better it is to be fi'-st in a Iberian village than to be second in Rome." —Caesar. It must have been something of the same spirit that decided John E. Everett t>f Tennessee to become a common, plain every day citizen in Wenatehee rather than remain ii\ hh old home and be returned as an hon ored member of the Tennessee Leg islature. At least, these are the facts as stated to the world yesterday by a friend who is cognizant of the cir cumstances of his coming here to reside. Mr. Everett arrived in We natehee Sunday and says he came here to stay. For the past two years he has represented his district in the law-making bady of his state, and overtures were made to him to accept the office again for the com ing term. He and his family are at the home of A. P. Kiser of Badger mountain. Will Give May Party. Invitations are being sent out by Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Arnold and Mrs. Kathryn McXerney for a May party to be held at Sprague's hall next Friday night. Mr. and Mrs. M. M.

FIVE CENTS PER COPY. NEW IRRIGATION PROJECT New Company Purposes to Irrigate 2,000 Acres More of East Wenatehee Land. A large irrigation project is under | consideration, by means of which • two thousand acres of land adjacent !to Wenatehee may be brought under | cultivation and set out to orchard. Henry Diffenbaugh, representing 1 the National Irrigation company of ; Minneapolis, is in Wenatehee loofc ; ing over this valley. This comnapy is capitalized at two and one-quarter million dollars, every dollar of stock of which is fully paid up. If suit able arrangements can be made, it is proposed to water all of the land lying above the High Line canal in Douglas county, two thousand acres iof which is adjacent to Wenatehee. I The company has two propositions to offer, either to furnish water for the land at a stated price per acre, jor they will furnish all of the trees and water, and then contract to pay fifty cents per box for the apples on : the trees. Mr. Diffenbaugh left this morning for Quincy to look over the proposi j tions at that place. He expects to j return to Wenauhee in a few days, ! where he will establish permanent headquarters.
