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 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. We
solicit your banking business be it large or small.

Again in the Valley to Conduct

Prof. A. Melander, of Pullman ar
rived in town last night, and went
out to the orchard of Z. A. Lanham
to conduct the spraying.
It will be remembered that Prof.
Melander and Trumbull last year
conducted the spraying at this orch

showed that only one-tenth of one
per cent of the apples were lost by
the codlin moth. Notwithstanding

About two and a half miles from

ter canyon, famous for its scenery
and fine fiishing, etc., one of the
greatest projects in the electrical
world of the Pacific coast is being
quietly pushed ahead by the Great
Northern Railway company, and
probably one year more will see its
entire completion.
Through the Turnwater canyon
flows the Wenatehee river, whose wa
ters for centuries have been rushing
over the many falls and dashing
against the rocks undisturbed, save
by the logs that have floated down
its current. The many cascades, if
harnessed, could furnish unlimited

NOUNCES CANDIDACY
Editor Daily World:
At the solicitation of friend* and
business associates, I have decided ro
become a candidate for the office of
representative of the district com
prising Chelan county, subject to the
will of the republican voters.
If elected to the position sought,
I shall use all honorable means at
my command to bring about such
legislation as my constituency may
desire. At the proper time, in the
progress of the campaign, I shall en- 1
SOME CITY
MATTERS
< helan Avenue Bonds Will Soon be on
the Market.—Some Petty
Thieving of Late.
The Chelan avenue bonds will be
on the market in a few days, and it
is expected that they will be sold in
a short time, as several of the influ
ential citizens of the city are doing
all in their power to help the city to
place them. This is the proper spirit!
to show. Every one should take hold
and help the good cause of improving
the city streets along.
Every day it can be heard from
strangers who come in our midst that
our city is very backward in the im
provement of its streets, falling be
hind in appearances the beautiful
valley that lies back of us and around
us.
But Wenatehee is like a growing
boy, hard to keep him in clothes that
look half way decent.
Once one of our avenues is fixed
up in an up-to-date manner then it
will be easier to get the rest under
way. The members of the city coun
cil have had to contend with the
blame heaped upon their shoulders
for not getting the streets improved
for several years, but the minute a
street improvement Is suggested or
the red tape started to bring about an
improvement, just so soon does some
one spring up with an opposition for
some cause or other, and in so doing
succeed i;i holding it back.
Individuality should be overlooked
in these matters, and the desire to j
make this city a bigger and better |
Wenatehee should be the uppermost
thought in everybody's mind. From i
the standpoint of social, moral and |
business life it pays better in the end j
to have everyone put their shoulder j
to the wheel and help the good cause!
along.
There has been considerable petty
thieving going on in the city of late,
which is very much to be regretted,
as the city has always borne the rep
utation of being free from crime of
that sort. Reports are coming in ev
ery day about clotheslines being
robbed, garden hose being taken at
night and other thefts of a petty na
ture, which shows that there is a very
undesirable element being harbored
in the city's limits somewhere.
Some of the guilty ones will be
caught sooner or later, as the police
have their suspicions, and no doubt
the usual plea for mercy will be
made.
It is a hard thing to dish out any
mercy to criminals of this kind, and
it is almost a certainty that the guilty
ones, if caught, will be given the full
est extent of the law in punishment.
Prof. Melander Will Tell How 100
Per Cent Good Fruit was Se
cured Last Year.
A meeting of the farmers is being
arranged for Thursday afternoon at
3 o'clock, at the rooms of the \V»
»natchee Commercial club, at which
; time Prof. A. Melander, of the state
college, will explain the methods
j used in securing 100 per cent good:
j fruit on the Z. A. Lanham ranch last j
Melander is one that no grower can
afford to miss. Mr. Melander will
tell how to spray, what to use and
how to apply it. 1

THE LONG AND
SHORT OF IT
Shorty Dunbar, 4 ft. 8 in., and Fran
cis Bojresoa, 6 ft. 7 in. Race to
a Finish on Wenatehee Aye.
An amusing event took place on the
main street Monday evening in the
character of a foot race between
• Shorty" Dunbar and Francis Boye
son.
"Shorty" stands exactly 4 ft. 6 in.
in his shoes, while his opponent tow
ers to the height of 6 ft. 7 in. in his
stocking feet.
The distance to be run was one
block, namely from Orondo avenue
to Palouse street, and the conditions
of the contest stated that Boyeson
was to start scratch while "Shorty"
was to be allowed a handicap of half
the distance.
Two heats were run off, the first
faiilng to tally because "shorty"
tipped over, at least it can hardly be
said that he .fell down. The second
heat was nip and tuck, and the win
ner could not be picked until the
tape was crossed. Undoubtedly
"Shorty" would have beaten by a
close margin, but turning to see
where his opponent was, he lost hi 3
advantage, and both runners crossed
the tape together. The race was,
therefore called a tie, and the purse
evenly divided between the contest
ants. "Shorty" feels confident of his
ability to beat his man, and another
race will probably be pulled off in the
near future.
