CREAMERY PLANT REMODELED.
The Mutual Creamery company,
of which D. 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

ST. 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
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.
was born at Kirkpatrick
(or Dumbarton) In Scotland, o r
perhaps in France, in the latter
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
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
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,

been directed by the commissioner
of Indians. The investigation is to
be made before t lie present trust

The department of the interior,
it is said, proposes to extend the

NOT DOVE. BUT EAGLE.
i Ex-Senator George Sutherland to
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.

to her flag which brought the flow,
