MOON WEARS FIERY GARB SMOKE AND DUST THE CAUSE— SOBER PEOPLE OUT LATE SEE SIGHT — INDIAN LEGEND SAYS AUGURS ILL. People who stay out late nights, j on business or pleasure, can take a look at the fiery red moon, the result Of an overabundance of smoke and | dust in the air. The smoke comes from the forest fires raging in the ex-; treme east and western part of the' state and the dust comes from the \ ' fields of eastern districts. The red condition of the orb of night was first noticed by a staid prohibitionist, ! , who thought he saw a comet headed j | for the earth. The night operator at the Western Union office swore ai | heavenly warning had been hung out j in the shape of a ball of fire. A po- < liceman with astronomical inclina- j tions declared that the unusual con- j dition of the moon was due to dust and smoke. Anyone who stays up long enough to see is repaid for his j loss of sleep. An Indian legend says j that a red moon in harvest time Is j a sign of violence. A red moon in Greek mythology augured well for h the land and the people on which It ( rose, and the old Romans loved the , sight of a colored moon. j 834 Have Registered.

SURVEY FOR NEW LIE MADE INDICATION'S ARE THAT SPO- X A NE-TO-BE LLINGH AM RAIL ROAD WILL RE BOLT BY THE GREAT NORTHERN SOON. Bellingham, Aug. 14. —That the survey is completed for a railway line to extend from Spokane almost di rectly west to Lake Chelan, thence j north, crossing the mountains at Cas j cade Pass and thence along the Cas j cade river to Marblemount is the in formation brought to the city today Iby William E. Moultray, son of for ! mer Senator W. R. Moultray, and j James Lynch, an eastern Washlng- I ton stockman who made the trip over ! the hills from Oklahoma. The entire trip was made on horse ' back and for a great part of the dis- I tance the survey line of the proposed : road was followed. From the ob servations made Mr. Moultray de i clares there is no question that a j road is to be constructed at once from Spokane across the mountains, finally ending at Bellingham. That I the company back of the enterprise is the Great Northern, but that this line is separate and distinct from the Washington Great Northern or the j Victoria. Vancouver & Eeastern is ' the belief of the travelers. Moultray declares that the survey , down the Skagit is on the same side of the line as the Great Northern road from Rockport now follows and he takes this to prove that the sur !vey is backed by this road. Other wise he believes the new line would take the opposite side of the river. Seven survey crews with expensive ! outfits have been in the field and I their work is just now completed. ' There is every evidence, says Moul tray. that the proposition is backed by heavy capital. Moultray and Lynch left Okano ; gan Thursday. August 12. and struck : the survey line at Lake Chelan. They held to the survey north and through the Cascade Pass and then followed it down the Skagit to Marblemoun*. The line follows closely the old Don ovan survey.
