into the "forest reserve. This with

for homesteads. As it is nothing can
be done with it, cattle can be grazed

Miss Cash has lead in this district

At one time she was in the lead by
some four thousand. However she is
only 350 votes from the lead, a small
amount to overcome. Miss Sebastian,
who now leads in this district, is a
most popular young lady and works
incessantly. Miss Knorr, the Denver
candidate, is making phenomiual
gains, climbing from 8,000 several
weeks ago to over 12,550 this week,

House Near Lucile Went Up in
Smoke Last Week
Taylor Wisdom Loses His
House and Contents.
A fire occurred at the ranch of
Morton A Johnson, across the river
from Lucile last week, destroying
their house and the contents. The
two owners were away from home at
the time and the cause of the fire is
unknown. Upon their return they
fonud the house in ruins. The dam
age was considerable and we are un
able to learn whether it was protected
by any insurance.
The country home of Taylor Wis
dom was completely destroyed by fire
this week. At the time of the fijpe-f
Mr. and Mrs. Wisdom were ill aifd
this makes the misfortune quite a
hardship. The cause of the lire we
understand was defective Hue and the
house was quickly consumed,
furniture was lost. We understand
some insurance was carried on the loss
which will amount to close to $1,500.
All the
Spring is Here.
There is every evidence that spring
lias at last arrived on Camas Prairie,
the robins are here, the ranchers are
busy with their spring work, the
building boom is on and last hut not
least the small boys are pitching balls
on every vacant lot in the city,
