The vein is about 5 feet wide, Mr. Vincent says. The top of the vein shows about two feet of cracked lignite with coloration of clay in the cracks. The hanging walls are blue basalt. Mr. Vincent says, while the flooi is a thin layer of porphyry,. The coal, it is said, has been tried and burns very good. The formation of the hill on this side of the vein is principally mag nesia rock while on the opposite side is mostly blue basalt. It is re ported that some leases have been made on land across the Clearwater river with the view of trying to locate the coal deposits on that side of the river. Have a Real Garbage System — By Audrey Stanton— a / 15 be There is one thing which Kend rick needs worse than most things and that is some system by which people may dispose of garbage and refuse instead of having to throw it into the streets and alleys. When you walk down main street you can see all kinds of fruit peel ings, papers etc. thrown into the street which gives the whole town an unclean and unsanitary appear ance. We do not notice this as much as out siders do who are just stopping to see the town. This thing could be helped a great deal if there were a few inexpensive but attractive garbage cans with cov ers, put on the corners or on every block. You may say "Oh that wouldn't do any good because people would never take the pains to go very far just to put a friut peeling or candy paper in a garbage can." But any one who says this is mistaken be cause most everyone would rather take a few extra steps than throw garbage into the main streets to de cay and make homes for flies. It isn't just paper's and banana or fruit peelings that are thrown in the streets, but you go down the back alleys and all you see is tin cans piled up in stacks, some times two or three feet high. This is another thing that should be hepled because all kinds of bacteria germs collect in such places, and are scat tered by the wind, and carried to the people around town. The re sult of these germs being carried is the starting of an epidemic. But people do not think of the danger there is in throwing refuse out side or 1 am sure they would not do it. Such things give off unpleasant lors, and make it very uncomfort able for people living around there. This is a fine way for a store to put up an advertisement which will attract much attention, and also help the town, by the store buying one of these garbage cans and hav ing a very attractive sign painted on it and setting it on one ot the corners to collect peelings, papers, etc. If every store would buy one of these cans, there would soon be enough to supply the whole town. enough to supply the whole town. Don't Monkey With Nature Dangerous, indeed, are the at tempts to interfere with nature Trinidad m the West Indies wished to rid itself of rats and snakes, so it imported from the neighboring island ot Santa Lucia the mon goose, which specializes on eating both snakes and rats. The result has been seriously to cut down the sugar production of Trinidad. The illogical mongoose, turning aside from its duty of eat in only rats and snakes, began to eat a variety of lizard which had been in the habit of eating the "froghopper," which in turn des troys the sugar cane. So we have a "vicious circle," more mongooses (it is difficult not to write mongeese), fewer lizards, more froghoppers, less sugar. Honolulu once tried a similar ex periment. It imported the mon goose to eat the Japanese beetle, which was destroying the flowers. I Ihe mongoose, however, preferred the frog, which was a more potent re to enemy of the beetle and left the in sect pest to thrive unhampered. More mongooses, fewer irogs, more beetles, fewer flowers. In one district of Mexico coyotes were thought too common. Poison was brought in literally by the car load ar.d the coyotes suffered. The result was that rabbits increased so that they destroyed the chief tood crop ot the country. It is a dangerous task, this trying to improve on nature.— The Nation's Business.

He kenw wbat he wanted— a ship—and he put up an ad for one. He flung a shirt on a pole, at the top of his island; that, in the language of the sea, was plain to every sea-faring man. "Tne circulation was small— there was no other medium— but Crusoe kept at it, despite the fact that he got no inquiries for a long time. He changed his copy—as one garment after another was frayed out—and in the end got what he wanted. "Suppose Crusoe had taken down that sigDal after a time and declar ed 'Advertising does'nt pay.' Where would he and his story be now? '"Put up your signal and Keep it there. Crusoe advertised under very discouraging circumstances.

KENDRICK WON BASEBALL GAME Defeated Ahsahka by Score of 14 to 2 The baseball "jinx" in Kendrick has faded away.

It is the first demonstration of real base ball that the heme team has dis played but now that the boys have hit their stride a long string of victories may be looked for.

George Carlson and McCrery were Kendrick's battery and they did good work. This is the first game George has played this season but he showed up well. McCrery pitched a dandy game allowing but 1 hit.
