BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 111. NO. 269. 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, tor 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 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.

There was a very light vote cast at the primaries in Wenatehee and Columbia Precincts last Saturday, due largely to the fact that many of the voters had failed to register. There seems to have been either some' misunderstanding as to the ne cessity of registration or there was a general lack of interest. The following is a list of the dele gates from Wenatehee, Columbia and Cashmere precincts: Wvtmlttytt Hails iHotlti NECESSITIES and CONVENIENCES F. H. Brand, M. D.

MISS TIBBIT'S GETS GOLD MEDAL Wenatehee Awarded First Prize in Oratorical Contest with Chelan a Close Second. I Before a large audience at Wenat jchee Theatre, Miss Helen Tibbits, of I Wenatehee. was awarded first prize | and Miss Dora Storhow, of Chelan, j second prize in the oratorical con ! test held Saturday evening. The other contestants were given honora ble mention by the judges. The selections were given in a very creditable manner, the delivery In which the contestants gave their selections was very excellent and showed long, hard training. In fact, the contest was very close, so close that the judges were in doubt as to whom to award the prizes. They fi nally and after much deliberation the first to Miss Helen Tib- I bits of Wenatehee and the second to iMiss Dora Storhow. Miss Tibbits re ceived the gold medal and Miss Stor how a silver one. The debate, which was to take place between Chelan and Cashmere High Schools was awarded to Chelan, who takes the banner. The Chelan debating team came prepared to debate on either side of the question, but Cashmere refused to debate at the time proposed by the committee, and so the debate went to Chelan by default.

Before a large and enthusiastic crowd of rooters, in which the fair sex was well represented, Saturday afternoon, Wenatehee took first hon ors in the Chelan county inter-high irack and field meet. Chelan made the next best showing, but did not quire come up to her expectations, be cause of the fact that Louis Wapato, her much-heralded athlete was just recovering from a two-weeks' sick ness. However, Mr. Wapato cap tured two firsts, one second and one third place for Chelan. Wenatehee was handicapped by the loss of two iof her best men who were behind in ' their studies. ! Comparing the results of this meet i with those of the meet of Lincoln I county schools at Harrington, better time was made at Wenatehee in quite la few events, and in the pole vault, j the highest point reached at Har ! rington was 8 feet 4 inches, while (Continued on Page 3.) EVIDENCES OF CITY'S GROWTH W. R. PROWELL, the Pioneer En gineer, Formerly Did All the Work, Now There Are 12. Four years ago W. R. Prowell did all of the engineering work in and about Wenatehee. At times he had an extra man or two, but the great bulk of the work was done by him alone. At the present time there are twelve civil engineers in the city, including the following: F. A. War ren, S. B. Littleton, C. C. Ward, F. M. Berry, J. W. Sussex, I. A. Na varre, Roy Zahren, Claude Hurlbutt, W. T. Tolch, W. E. Harry, W. R. Prowell and A. H Sylvester To this might be added Marvin Chase, whose work, however, is more that of a construction engineer. T. W. Thompson, division superin tendent of schools of the Philippine Islands, is in town today looking over possible investments. PICTURE FRAMING No picture frames too large, none too small for me to frame right at right prices. Chas. Kyle - Chas. Kyle One of the Greatest Tragedies in History of Central Wash ington Closed Yesterday. The Stealing of the Horses, the Pursuit, the Double Drowning—Finding of the Sweetheart's Letter. A tragedy, the equal of which has probably never been heretofore re corded in the history of this section of the state has just been enacted in Chelan and Douglas counties. The stealing of the horses from the Eagle and Arrow livery barns in Wenatehee, the attempt to sell the horses at Watei ville, the man hunt across Douglas county, a race of 2 5 miles as the youtug men headed east ward, the finding of their bodies in the bottom of a lake near Stratford, and the letter to the sweetheart of one in far away England—this is the setting for a drama in real life. As recorded in a former issue of the World, the young men left We natehee last Wednesday, one on a horse from the Eagle and the other from the Arrow livery of this city. Not returning the following day, and! being informed by a man from Wa-j terville that the boys were in that vicinity , a search was instituted. Starting eastward they were fol-1 lowed by the authorities from Water ville. The chase was a lively one. When in the eastern part of Doug •as county they were met by the dep uty sheriff. Stopping his horse, the deputy sheriff prepared to make the arrest as they came up. Perceiving his intent, the thieves wheeled their horses and started in the opposite direction. For several miles he chased them. Striking a trail the thieves attempted to elude their pur suers. The trail led to Brook Lake, near Stratford. It is believed they attempted to j make their horses swim the lake, and I while in the water one of thaui fell j off, dragging the ether down with | him. Their hats were found floating on the lake by the officers, who, be-j lieving it was a ruse, continued tbeir search. However, it was evident that the trail ended at the lake, and a search revealed the two bodies locked in a deadly embrace at the bottom of the lake. . One Body is Identified. A dispatch from Wilson Creek says: One of the young men whose bodies were recovered tonight from Brook Lake was identified by J. W- Doneen, a farmer living on the south side of Badger mountain, ten miles from Wenatehee, as Harry Hadfleld, a young Englishman, who had been jin this country but a short time. Let ters on the young man showed that Ihe had a sweetheart in England, and his mother's name is Mrs. Dora Had fleld, 14 Wilkinson street, Lancaster, England. He has a sister, named lira. Mau, who lives on Craig moun tain, Idaho, 20 miles from Lewiston. Letters on his person indicate that he had been well raised, and was not a professional crook. There was nothing about the per- Ison of the other young man to indi ate his identity. He was about 25 years of age and bore a strong re semblance to his partner. Only three j cents were found on the unidenti fied man, and Hadfleld had no I money. The hour of the death of the men was indicated by the stop ping of a watch found on the per son of the unidentified young man, 1 : which occurred at 10:32 Friday,: I about 15 minutes before one posse' passed the place where they were | drowned, and about half an hour be-1 , fore another posse came up. The bodies were brought to Wilson Creek [ READ THE WANT ADS. FIVE CENTS PER COPY. tonight, and will be buried tomorrow at the expense of the county. The authorities in Douglas coun ty in phoning to Prosecuting Attor ney Crass the other day told him o? the finding of the horses and of the hats of the boy .s "This is a nice little game," said Crass, "and you will find them in the sage brush about the lake." Taking it for granted that they were hidden a thorough search was made along the banks. But no boys were found. Then the lake was dragged and the bodies found. It is believed that they were not aware of the proper way to swim a horse across a body cf water. A horse, in starting to swim a stream takes in much air. It Is probable that the saddle girths had not been loosened, so the horses weie not able to "swell up" wKa air and thus ke j p their riders above the water. (Continued on Page 3.)
