BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 111. NO. 272. 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.

Farnham, iof Steamboat Springs, is dying at St. : Luke's hospital, states a Denver re ! port. His condition is so serious that ,a telegram has been sent to his wife, j asking her to make haste and come to Denver. | It was Mr. Farnham more than any one else who succeeded finally in rid , ding Brown's Park of its gang of out- I laws. He captured single-handed the outlaw Harry Tracy after Tracy had . murdered Valentine Hoy. Tracy af terwards escaped from prison, and in his efforts to avoid arrest killed seven or eight men of the posses who fol lowed him in a perilous hunt through ! Oregon and Washington. Finally Tracy was surrounded in a wheat j field a few miles from Spokane and killed himself in the night by sending j a bullet through his brain. I Many stories could be told of Farn ham's bravery. He was a man of few words and slow to anger, but of great determination. The Hoys, who were I among the oldest settlers in the coun ■ty and of great respectability, were among his closest friends. Valentine Hoy was killed by Harry Tracy, at a watering hole, because Tracy, who I was then an outlaw with a price on his head, feared that Hoy would cause his arrest. Farnham took up the chase at once and did not stop until Tracy's capture. Dr. L. B. Manchester, dental office, Columbia Valley Bank Building.*** Don't forget to register for the coming city election.
