awkwardly bumped against the foot

He lifted his cap and turned to offer

The girl sprang front the chair.
"John!" she cried iu a tone that

The girl laughed.
"Mamma 1» none too good a sailor,

quickly. T am tired to death of titles,
and—don't tell mamma, will you?—
I'm glad to get home—foolishly and
pathetl «•ally glad. Have you been

A spoonful of kerosene added to the
basin of water in which tfte windows
are to be washed makes them beauti
fully clear and easy to polish, while at
the same time It repels tiles and mos
quitoes. If screen doors and windows
are thoroughly brushed and freed from
dust, then wiped over with kerosene,
they will look as good as new, while
mosquitoes, flies and moth millers will
give a wide berth as long as any trace
of the odor remains.
Til the laundry kerosene proves a
great saving of labor. Washing with
kerosene saves time, as it dispenses
with all the rubbing that usually pre
cedes the boiling. Shave Into the waah
boiler one half pound good soap, fill
three-quarters full of water and add
two tablespoons of kerosene oil. Bring
to a boll, and put the clothea In dry.

Wallowa May Be Damaged.
It Is reported that the government
dredge boat Wallowa was lying at
Evans bar yesterday as the steamer
Spokane passed and was apparently in
a crippled condition. However, no posi
tive statement to this effect could tie
made as no stop was made for inqui
ries, but it was evident the boat was
beached for repairs, which might per
haps have been of small consequence.
The dredge boat is very difficult to ^
handle owing to the heavy rigging in!
front which sustains the 7.000-pound
rake and great caution has to foe ex
ercised in passing over the rapids to
prevent a collision with boulders. The
Wallowa draws several inches more
water than any other boat on the
stream and with her heavy weight, is
more liable to an accident. Captain
Winslow took on a large supply of coal
while here the first of the week and
unless some mishap should befall the
boat extensive operations will be car
ried on in the lower river channel for
some time to come.
Cody Goes to Jail.
A man by the name of A. I,. Cody
was arrested Wednesday by Chief of
Police Masters on the charge of dis
orderly conduct. The fellow had im
bibed too freely or "firewater" an d
while dr'vlng his tenin along at the
corner of Sixth and Court streets, be
gan letting loose a tirade of profane
language and flourishing a revolver
which he had In the seat beside him.
The abusive language was directed at
a lady who resides in that part of the
city and she took offense at the insult
ing language. Cody, who resides in
Garden Gulch near Lapwai, was taken
before Justice Coburn and entered a
plea of not guilty. Witnesses were
summoned and the case tried yester
day. resulting in Cody's conviction and
a fine of $30 was imposed, in default
of which the prisoner was remanded to
jail and will now do time on the streets.
