Abe Coon was interviewed by the
game warden this week regarding the
dumping of sawdust in a dry creek
near the old Kidder A Agee mill site
on Kidder ridge. Abe had never seen
or heard of such a thing as fish (out
side of canned salmon) in that locality
but as the sawdust was apt to drift
into Maggie creek and strangle the
fish in that stream, a complaint was
sent in and the game warden acted
cordingly. Dead criters, manure and
all kinds of filth is being dumped into
the South Fork at Stites—and here,
too—but the game warden or no one
else pays attention to this. It appears
that sawdust is the only thing that
contaminates water in this part of the

that the hour of noon is signaled every
day to every part of the country by
telegraph from the naval observatory
at Washington. The custom originat

observatory in England, but our

the Chicago News. At Greenwich a
signal is sent out at noon, but at
Washington a series of signals is used,
beginning five minutes before
During these five minutes every tick
of the observatory clock is electrically
transmitted, except the twenty-ninth
second of each minute, the last five
seconds of the first four minutes and
the last ten secon'ds of the fifth min

The object of the series of signals is
