HUSTLE AND BOOST IS THE
WEST'S SECRET OF GROWTH Development Due to People Rath er Than to Great Resources of Country. TRAVELLER TELLS OF VISITS "Western people nre the finest !n tho world but the western country nnJ climate are no whit better than In tho upper peninsula of Michigan," declares a man who has made severul visits to the Pacific slope and has business interests there. "The secret of tho wonderful fjrowth and development of the west," ho continued, "is not its phenomenal natural resources by any manner of means. It lies in the ppirit of the western people, who are hustlers and boosters all the time. In a cer tain hotel In Seattle, the following motto hangs In the lobby: 'Do you like Seattle? If you do, say so; If you don't, K"t out. "These wore are the embodiment of the spirit of the west. Everyone is a booster; there are no knockers. The kn K-kers find it a mighty unpleasant place to live and are glad to move on. No matter what the weather may be, the climate Is Just fine. As a matter of fact, compared with the upper pe ninsula, the greater juirt of the far w t Is abominable, as far as climate it concerned, but you would never find this out from one of the Inhabitants, When it rains It rains far days and days, and both men and women walk about clad in rubber boots and mack intoshes; when It Is dry, it Is so very dry that not a ppear of anything green can be found anywhere. Suggest this to a westerner, however, and he is peeved, nnd nine chances out of ten iie will convince you that you are mis taken before he leaves you. The heavy rains are just what Is needed for tlv country, and when It gets dry, that' just what the country needs, too. 'If (ol sends rain, why rain's my choice.' That Is the way the westerner looks nt everything, at least when showing his country to a stranger. "The last time I was In Oregon, red wood stump lands that I would not consider worth $2.1 an acre after thoy were cleared were being sold for $201 an acre and upwards, stumps and all. The man who wants to buy land had better Invest his money rlsht at hom not on the Pacific coast where the real estate men aro laying for moneyed easterners. They are getting then, too. It Is the hustle nnd bustle of the western people that Is developing thv west so rapidly. Points Worth Taking Home. "Without presuming to make nny odious comparisons, there are many characteristics of western people which might well be taken home OV residents of other localities. When a SUBJECTS ARRANGED FOR THE OSCEOLA TEACHERS' MEETINGS Sessions Will be Held in Sections During Second Semester as Formerly. GENERAL MEETING IN SPRING A few minutes delay in treating some cases of croup, even the length of time it takes to go for a doctor often proves dangerous. The safest way Is to keep Chamberlain's Cough Remedy In the house, and at the first Indication of croup give the child a dose. Tleas nnt to take and always cures. Sold by Eagle Drug Store, Calumet, and Laurium Pharmacy, Eaurlum. The following subjects prepared by Supt.

Should the superintendent Judge the school by what the teacher can do or ly what the pup'ls can do? General Discussion. PYTHIANS ARE INTERESTED. stranger goes west with the Idea of establishing a home or buying a farm, he is not told that this is a dead town, that there are fearful blizzards In tho winter, that It gets so cold that tho mercury drops out of the thermometer, and that the land Is so poor that farm ing Is Impractical. Every man whom tho stranger meets tells him. of the delightful features of his proposed new home, how many other men have made fortunes In th same line of business in which he desires to embark, an 1, In short, does everything he can to make the stranger welcome and per fectly at homo. "When asked where Is the best place In town to buy a rug, a suit of clothing or pome furniture, the west erner does not say, 'Oh, everything is awfully high here, you had better senl to Chicago If you don't want to b robbed.' He directs the stranger to one of tho homo stores, where he is received and treated In the same hos pitable manner. When a real estate dealer has a prospective customer for some valuable land, his rival In busi ness does not get hold of the eustom'T and run down the purchase he Intends making, with the result that the pur chaser goes away from the town, dis gusted, with everything nnd everybody in It. Everybody works together for the West in the West, realizing thit by so d. ing all w ill gain In the end." Certain Dividends Not only does the First National Bank of Calumet promise to keep your savings safely and return them to you on demand, but it is actually willing to pay for the privilege. The only way to save is to save, and and the only time to begin is IOIV, Savings accounts begin to draw semi-annual dividends as soon as the money is deposited in the bank. These dividends don't depend upon the price of copper, or railroads or miners' strikes. They are sure and certain First National Bank OF CALUMET Calumet Pythlans are considering the matter of attending the annual re union of tho IT. P. league, which is to be held at Manlstlque early In June. It Is quite likely that Charity lodge will take a band along. A special rate will likely be secured from the South Shore road, as well as a special sleep er for the copper country Pythlans. LAURIUM CIVIC COMMITTEE WILL MfET MONDAY AFTERNOON Plans for the Equipment for New Laurlum Playground Will be Considered. TO FLAN FUTURE ACTIVITY WILL RESIDE HERE. Captain James Willcox, who has re signed his position as manager of the Mass mine, has decided to take up his residence in Hed Jacket. It is reported that he will build in this village the coming summer. ROYAL Afternoons 2:30. Evenings 7:00. Arrangements have been made for a meeting of the Calumet civic Improve ment committee, and all others who are Interested In the movement, to be held at the Laurlum bank hall, Mon day afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. All who are anxious to see civic Improvements of this kind brought about, are urged to be present nnd to co-operate with tho nommlttee. A complete report 3" the committee's work so far will he presented and it Is thought that plans will bo outlined for future activity. One of the subjects to be considered Is the equipment for the new Liurlum playground on Hecla and. First streets, While all tho ground work has been completed, the park must still be fur nlshed with suitable playground nppli nnces and nrovlsion must be made for the cultivation of flowers there. About half of the park ground has been ar ranged for a playground nnd the ro malnder will be used ns a flower gar den and beauty spot. The two will be kent entlrelv senurato and It thought that they will bo a source pleasure to young nnd old alike. While It Is not known whether cr not the committee will cons'der plan for work on the site of the park which It Is hoped to secure for Red Jacket and Calumet generally. It Is not likely that this question will come up. As surances have born received that lan 1 will be provided for the contemplated park, but no grant has been secured and the committee will doubtless deem It advisable to wait for womoth'ng m re definite. COME TO THE Cub's Billiard Parlors You are sure to meet your friends here 20 Discount on All Pipes DURING FEBRUARY Ask for Your Coupons, they are Your Share of the Profit COUPONS REDEEMABLE IN OUR LARGE PREMIUM DEPARTMENT 332 Fifth Street, Calumet We have secured a swell program for Saturday, Sunday und Monday, consisting of four beautiful pictures from which we make a feature of one of the Olograph's best efforts entitled "The Course .. OF Troe Love" That the course of true love ne'er ran smooth Is so often evinced that ;t is exceptional, Indeed, that love's path way Is strewn with roses devoid if thorns. Trifles light as air become heavy-weights of doubt, which are al ways Intensified by tales of symiwithlz Ing friends In whom we confide. There is never a ruffle, but what we have pointed out to us parallels with their disastrous outcome. Of course we know that man's unfaithfulness Is woman's greatest sorrow, nnd Mrs. Thurston suffered this, for her husband was much given to recklessness, and night after night she had waited his return from the club, the theater or elsewhere in an intoxicated condition, often find ing evidences of his perfidy. Their daughter, Florabel, U betrothed to Ben Lawrence, a prosperous young artist, and the day for the wedding has been set. Lawrence Is a good-natured chap, well-liked b" his colleagues and a fa vorite In the circle In which he moved. A hard nnd ambitious worker, we find h'm In his studio, at a canvas, too en grossed to partake of the frugal lunch his valet has placed for him. Wpille thus engaged, a little flower-girl en ters to sell hor flow ers. He doesn't want any, but finding the poor girl faint nnd cold from hunger, he makes her sit and eat the lunch that was laid for him. She haj hardly started eating when ho hears the approach of someone, and to relieve her embarasa ment. he draws a screen around her. It Is a party of his artist friends, who have come to congratulate him on his engagement. Meanwhile, Lawrence's fiancee has started with some friends for the studio arriving there Just after the artists. Florabel espies the flower- girl seated behind the screen, and is he Is working the portrait of a man, reasons that she Ik not a mere model. She loaves the studio abruptly, and telling her fears to her mother, has them hn polled by her mother's own story of grief. Lawrence calls to learn why his sweetheart left the nteler so suddenly. In responso ho receives a rnrt note that "she cannot see him and trusts he will not rail again. Quite beside himself as to the cause. It dawns upon him. Throwing her note upon tho table, lie proceeds to pack his belongings. Intending to go awav, when tho flower-girl enters. She learns that she Is the Innocent cause of his trouble, nnd hastens to right the wrong. Meeting Florabel. she explain nil and they hurry back to catch Law rence Just as he Is leaving the place They nre reconciled, whll the por flower-girl look on and thinks of what might have been, for she loved the kind-hearted artist. Gold ValchGiven Away MAY CONSIDER ELECTION. Council May Submit New Fire Hall Project to the Voters. At the regular meeting of the Laur lum council, next Tuesday evening. It Is likely that the question of submit ting the new fire hall, project to tho voters at tho regular Kpring election will be considered. While there Is not l.ntr tlilu nilddlliin 1111 In the proper and legal way at elec tion time. It might be possible for the council to , secure an , expression of opinion Informally, which would serve the purpose, giving the trustees an Idea of how the taxpayers fvi, on the prop osition. Unless "such action Is taken, It is not likely that efforts will be made this year to bring about a reali zation of the plans for this Improvement. The council will likely take action on the annual report of the village which will be presented at the meeting. The report will be the first complete report of the village'affairs under the present administration. PROGRESS ON TOWN MAP. Village Engineer Scott of Laurlum, is making good progress on the new map, wiucn is being prepared ror mo village. It Is expected that the map will be completed In about three weeks. It has ulready boon colored nnd will be very complete, Including the loca tion of all Improvements throughout the town as well us the different streets and lots. News want ads bring results. An attack of the grip Is often fol lowed by a persistent cough, which to many proves a great annoyance. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has beea extensively used and with good suc cess for the relief and cure of this cough. Many cases have been cured after all other remedies had failed.

Yauch, which promises to be nlmost as interesting as the main bout. Another prelimin ary between young boys will bo provided. Dr. John Miller of Calumet will act as referee for the match, and the sup porters of both men are satisfied that he will bo fair and impartial In his de cisions. While he undoubtedly has a hard task before him, It Is thought that ho will give entire satisfaction. Decorations, 9 V , Kiu Suction. - D S25tj Kw!wu CvAu DcAUts.
