E Newman is manager, has just completed the expenditure of in excess of $ 20,000 In remodel ing and re-equipping their local plant, going to make it one of the finest in the entire northwest. While the improvements extend over the whole plant, the creamery, butter and ice cream departments have practically been made new. and in the large cold storage rooms a new flooring of fifteen inches of cork and walls of cork five inches thick have been put in place. New and more modern churns have been Installed, and the pas teurizing nom improved so as to make it as thoroughly modern as possible. Throughout the plant the walls have been coated with a ce ment composition and in every man ner made sanitary and attractive, making it an easy matter to keep clean. A hew hardening room for ice cream lias been constructed, the temperature of which ranges from 10 to 2 0 below freezing. In this way the creamery people find them, selves able to keep a large amount of ice cream fresh to meet the de mand in warm weather. A new sweet cream refrigerating room is also an innovation. In the engine room many im provements have been carried out and in tl e rooms where ice is made, a large fore cooler has been stalled to receive the city water and lower its temperature before enter ing the brine tanks.— Lewiston Tribune. ; S'-t h r 1 , i % 1 1 S, w yr'WAS THIS EVER.

PATRICK S DAY. March 17th is celebrated by, Irishmen of all creeds and donoml- ; nations as the birthday of their w patron saint, Patrick. There is a story that once there was a dispute between two factions, one claiming that the patron saint was born on the eigth, the other, that he came to this world on. the ninth of of M. of of M.; 2 of March. As the quarrel could not otherwise be settled, the 17th was decided upon by the simple com promise of adding eight and nine together. But there appears to be no reason for doubting that St. Patrick was born at Kirkpatrick (or Dumbarton) In Scotland, o r perhaps in France, in the latter of W. R part of the fourth century, on the day usually kept as his birthday. St. Patrick's day is purely a nation, ai celebration irrespective of any religious belief. ST PATRICKS LIFE. Wherever an Irishman makes his home, there an altar to St. Patrick is established, and on the seven teenth of March a trail of green enriches the globe, from the old sod reaches faraway places and decorates thousands of gallant Irishmen, who by the sym bol proclaim their devotion to St. Patrick. This year, owing to war and the uncertainty of the future, the celebrations are somewhat sad dened. sec. The shamrock er of 37 Historians tell us with unfailing zest that St. Patrick was born of Godfearing parents in the year 372 of the Christian era. The little that is known of his youth has been sadly garbled by chroniclers who, being ambitious to produce some thing new, seem to have forged some points of the history. Of thes e chroniclers some are, no doubt cor rect, but which? On this account some painstaking writer has given us the facts as far as truly known, and with these we must be con tent. of S, of j W. 36 R. N.

There was no church, no I sacrements. He could find no priest nor any one who paid any attention lo religion. He was "alone among scoffers . and the graven images." His life of prayer and self-sacri fice continued during the long year 5 of his term of slavery, which were three. Finally freed from his bond age, he entered the priesthood, as he had so long desired. After he had finished his studies, he was or dained, and the zeal of his soul be came a conflagration. As many de. vout souls have prayed to do. he wished to convert the whole world, and as all desire, he prayed pathet ically to wear the martyr's crown. France knew of him, and there he of of B. to labored for a time, as he did in It rly and the Thyrrhenion seat: lards But it was to Ireland his heart turned most eagerly and he was permitted a vision in which he saw the people of Erin stretch forth their arms to him in supplication, and this vision determined him to undertake the dtffirult task of the conversion of Ireland. 1 He traveled! = to Rome to get permission of the I pope and submitted his labor and j himself to that high dignitary, was consecrated bishop and, having I He received his instructions and having I been blessed, he began Ills Journey to his new mission. The inhabitants of Erin were considered in an advanced stage of civilation, and St. Patrick began hi s labors by denouncing Drutdlsm. as tonishing It's followers by the won. derful deeds he accomplished in the name of God, and little by little they believed and accepted the mysteries of the true religion.

And it is not the dove, let me re mind you, but the eagle which sym. bolizes the spirit of America; Yield nothing to the aggressor! A nation, like a man, must carefully distin guish between the desire for peace which springs from a timid soul, anxious only to be safe, and that which comes from a stout heart seeking the way of righteousness. That form of internationalism which teaches that thestranger be yond our gates should be the object of our solicitude equally with the loved, mutualy helpful members of our own household, is not sound sentiment but maudlin sentimental ity. The form of internationalism in which 1 believe is that of cordial 1 co-operation among nations for thg : welfare and betterment of the peo pie of all lands, but which will al ways look first to the welfare and betterment of our own. : It would mean very little to be 1 an American if a thin fondness for ; all the tribes of men should be sub. ! stituted for that passionate love of ! country and that flaming devotion to her flag which brought the flow, ! er the nation to the sacrificial I fields of France as to a place of great privilege. 1 For Sale Cheap.
