Deary Press: One of our chief
reasons for advocating construction
of the state highway this fall is to
give men work during the fall and
winter. The road is going to be
built sooner or later—why not go at
it now and help the wage-earners
out. If all conditions are favor
able as to cost ot materials and
labor, why put it off? We have the
machinery and equipment. We
suggest that the board call a mass
meeting and discuss the matter with

Perce Indian war was revealed on
the lot at 820 East B. street., sold
some time ago by C. L. Tompson to
E. McMartm, when contractor A.
G. Giese in digging the foundation
for a modern bungalow came upon
the remains of a stockade. The
stumps were just below the depth
of the foundation and looked as
fresh as when first placed by the
sturdy white settlers.
The line ot the stockade agreed
with the lines established in that
section of Moscow as sites where
the defenders put up a rugged de
fense to the onslaughts of the fol
lowers of the old Indian chief.
Some few years ago when excavat
ing was proceeding opposite to the
site of the bungalow, and across the
road, remains of a stockade were
dicsovered by contractor Giese.
There was also a well uncovered
showing thaï the water was handy
for the defenders.
The stumps were left as they
would not disturb the work of pro
gress. The Indian war occurred in
1877. The outline of a trench was

Many farmers are learning that jt
pays to fatten poultry for market,

cattle. Heavy feeding and close
confinement for 2 or 3 weeks adds
finish and weight, thereby increas

pounds. An excellent fattening
ration consists of 2 parts finely
ground corn, 2 parts shorts, moist
ened with buttermilk or sour milk
to a motar-like consistency. Birds
will eat it fed 3 times daily. It is
not uncommon for a good husky

things, to the fact that a large num
ber of cases have been reported in
this state, principally in the north

At present very Iittle is known of
the causative agent, but it is sup

organism, causing a general infec

spinal cord where it attacks the
nerve roots, causing paralysis of the
muscles supplied by these nerves,
It is a well known tact that it is
transmitted from one person to an
other, but the manner of transmis

The disease starts in the same
manner as any fever condition, may
stimulate ordinary intestinal mfec

or perhaps only a few very short
hours, followed by paralysis, or loss

body. This may partly clear up
and in some instances it clears up~

paralysis of one or more groups of

This should be done twice a day.

The patient should be kept as

tne case is diagnosed as "Infantile
Paralysis,'' Rosenow's sprum, which
is obtained from the Mayo Clinic,
may be used at this time. It must
be used before the paralysis has
