SUBSCRIPTION PRICE fc1.50 EACH YEAR ON A HUNTING TWP. Sunday in Camp. The dawn comes. All asleep. Soon the slim one awakens and immediately calls the other two. Then ensues an argument as to who shall light the fire. After a t-w minutes' discussion upon whose turn it is, we decide that the fair haired boy with the angelic face has to do it.. He starts in. No pith, no dry wood, can find no pa prf. and after wasting about half a Ix.x of matches finally starts a small blaze. The stove smokes, which causes a flow of language from the other two that would not grace a drawing room. The tent «ets full of smoke. We have to get outside. During the night three inches of snow has fallen and the thermometer is 10 above. We make the angelic one wish that he had never been born. At last every thing is all right, and we discuss what we shall have for breakfast. Finally we decide to have corn meal mush. I say the way to cook it is to put it in a kettle with cold water and boil it. We do so, but forget the salt. At last it boils. Some gets cooked and finally we wind up by eating cold beans left from the night before. I say to the slim one: "Is this frozen bean salad or Harricot Glace a la Del monico?" And for my smartness Mr. Slim tells me politely to cross the river Styx. After this princely repast it falls to the lot of the slim one to cut some wood (Mr. Slim, by the way, works in a real estate office). After working for some five minutes he manages to cut about three sticks of wood that will go in the stove. The fourth one flies up and hits him in the eye. Poor boy. We have no beefsteak to put on his lettered face. The reason is we are such great hunters. No one can tell us anything about the habits of wild animals, as we have lived in the woods all our lives, and I. ought nothing with us but bacon, on which we are still living, and when we go back will not be able to look Armour in the face. About 11 a. m. I suggested it would be a good plan to get some ilinner. The other two agreed with me. (I would give a dollar to get to a free lunch counter.) The an-* gelic one was selected to peel some spuds. Well, he did so. After he had themjpeeled I told him to wash the dirt off them. Well, he went to the water pail and there was quite a coating of ice on top of the water. He proceeded to break the ice. I guess he did, from what he said. It is a good thing his best girl was not thereat the time. He would have been all in so far as she was concerned. Somehow or other lhe ice went in and the water up Ins sleeve. He said it was as cold as a certain place, but from rec ollections of my early teachings that place is anything but cold. He then proceeded to pour water •>n the spuds, and by some freak of nature they all got a coating of ice around and would not wash worth a cent. Would some kind individ ual kindly tell me what was the matter with them. We put them on to boil, dirt and all. After a while the ice melted and the water began to boil. The longer it boiled the blacker and tougher the spuds became. We decided after boiling them two hours we would eat them anyway. We did so, and you can THE FARMERS' CO-OPERATIVE TRADING COMPANY Thank theif many customers for their patronage and extend A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPV NEW YEAR TO ALL We kindly solicit your future patronage. bet your last dollar that when we get home and are telling otir friends about our hunting trip we will say that we had an awny up time and lived on the fat of the land. If this is living on the fat, heaven protect the lean. We had eaten all the bread and crackers we brought with us, so it behooved us to make some kind of bread Mr Slim sud he could make the finest kind of biscuit. Naturally he tried his hand at it. First of all he put some water in a pan, then put in a spoonful of baking powder. The effect was instantaneous. The water began to boil. I did not know baking powder acted that way, I suggested putting the baking pow der in the flour, which he did. Then he mixed bread (you may call it bread; Ido not). He said he had to knead it good, which he proceeded to do. Then he put it in a pan and put it in the oven to bake. (By the way, we had one of those sheet iron stoves that the hardware men recommend so high ly and make 200 per cent profit on.) It got black on the outside and all the samee leather inside. The ad vertisement of the baking powder said it would make biscuits like mother made. If I had that baking powder man here I believe I would tell him rather forcibly that he did not stick to the truth, and I told the slim one tnat he had missed his vocation and had better start a German bakery. We have a two weeks' vacation. We have passed one. The other two say they are having lots of fun and will be sorry to get back to work, but for my part I shall not be sorry to get back to the office, and away down in their hearts I believe the other two wish the same, and I believe if either one was to even hint at returning the other two would say: '*I think it is mean of you to suggest such a thing as to go home before the end of our vaca tion, but since you want to go we will not stay without you." Such is the pleasure of a hunting trip, and you can rest assured we will go next year. Truly yours, —A Member of a City Rod and Gun Club. Ed Hoff died last week at North port as a result of taking Rough on Rats with suicidal intent, and his friend Frederick Angle at Marcus is recovering from the effects of the same poison, which he took after attempting to shoot his wife. Angle had lived at Marcus several years, but a few months ago obtained work in a smelter at Northport. His wife became ill and went back to her mother at Marcus a month ago. Saturday Angle went to Mar cus and with a double-barreled shotgun called at the home of his mother-in-law and opened fire on his wife. After shooting at her twice with bad aim he ran to the river and jumped in. The water was apparently too cold or to shal low for a comfortable death, so emerging he drank the contents of a whisky flask filled with the rodent beverage, before his pursuers were able to seize him. Dr. Sprout was unfortunately called too soon, and with a stomach pump brought Angle out of danger. He is now held at Marcus until able to appear before Justice Kirk. Prosecuting Attorney Rochford and Sheriff Gra ham will go to Marcus next week to attend the hearing, when Angle will undoubtedly be bound over to appear before the superior court. At Northport Angle and Hoff had been warm friends, and together purchased the poison in a compact to commit suicide. They had been on a protracted drunk, and general despondency is the presumable cause of the action taken by both. —Colville Examiner.

But St. Maries, since it got the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, has had a few dreams i>f supremacy and it is even proclaimed by some of its booster club that it will in five vear3 make Coeur d'Alene look to its laurels as the metropolis of Kootenai. —Bonners Ferry Herald. U. 5. Senator Samuel H. Pile*, has forwarded to the county com missioners data relative to the opening of the Spokane Indian reservation, and from which it seems it is the present intention of the government to embody practic ally all of that part of the reserva tion not allotted to Indians, in a forest reserve. Senator Piles urges that if any part of the alloted por tion is suitable for agricultural purposes steps be immediately taken towards having the proposed boundary lines of the reservation so modified as to exclude that part suitable for homestead entry as farming lands.—Statesman-Index.

Give every cold the at tention it deserves and you may avoid this disagreeable disease. How can you cure a cold? Why not try Chamber lain's Cough Remedy? It is highly rec ommended. Mrs. M. White, of Butler. Tenn., says: "Several years ago I was bothered with my throat and lungs. Some one told me of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I began using it and it relieved me at once.

As long as business Is prosperous and population continues to concentrate in the cities and towns, requiring them to reach out farther and farther for supplies of fresh milk, the market milk business will crowd back the making of butter and cheese, especial ly of the ordinary grades, and facto ries for their manufacture will be abandoned in order to sell milk or cream to the city. The outlook for the market milk business in New Eng land as far as demand Is concerned Is good. The only question is that of price. The farm labor situation is acute, the. cost of grain feeds is high and increasing, and the awakening of health authorities to the importance of clean, sanitary milk Is adding to the cost of production. There seems, how ever, to be no danger of the overpro duction of milk, cream or fancy fresh butter. Wonderful progress has been made In the dairy industry during the past decade in the north central states. Among the states which have become prominent in dairying recently are Michigan, Indiana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma and Missouri. In the last fifteen years the states of Illinois, lowa, Wisconsin and Min nesota have made great progress in dairying. In the last two states thou sands of farms have been taken up and put under cultivation, and hun dreds of the creameries and cheese factories have been built and put In GBADK IIOIiSTEIN QUEEN. [Best yearly record, 12,000 pounds milk, 480 pounds butter fat; average for six years, 8,422 pounds milk, 339.47 pounds butter fat] operation. The center of butter pro duction has been moving westward, while market milk is relatively of less importance westward than in the east. In the South. In the south some herds are found producing as good results as are or dinarily made in any section of Amer ica. Altogether there is an enormous demand in the south for dairy prod ucts. Almost all of the butter and cheese is imported, and some cream is shipped in from states a great distance away. While the southern dairyman has some difficulties he has also many advantages In climate, cost of build ing, variety of forage crops and good markets. On the Pacific Coast. In the highly productive valleys of the state of Washington rich, succu lent food, pure water and. temperate climate are the essentials in the man ufacture of a "nutty," high flavored sweet butter. Nature has been lavish In her gifts to the state of Washing ton in this respect, and we may look forward to this state becoming a large producer of highest grade butter. In the beautiful climate of Oregon new blood, dairy literature arid farm ers' institutes are the leaven which is changing the "mossback" into an in telligent dairyman. Here and there may be seen pure bred herds of Jer seys, Holstein-Friesians and Ayrshires. California has sections that are ideal for the production of milk, the only drawback being the scarcity of labor. The counties surrounding the bay of San Francisco comprise the best de veloped dairy district of California. It is from these counties that California is receiving one-third of its butter and San Francisco all of its milk. No section of the United States of fers greater returns to the intelligent dairyman than the states on the Pa cific coast. Owing to the numerous streams which have their origin in snow clad peaks there is a never fail ing supply of fresh pure water, and in this equable climate dairy cows re quire to be stabled only from two to four months, according to the locality. What Grade Cows May Do. In all parts of the country the inter est of farmers who desire to build up profitable dairy herds, but do not feel able to purchase pure bred stock en tirely, centers largely around the pos sibilities of grade cows. Carefully kept records of Individual grade cows for a series of years have when such cows are well fed and well managed they may return a liberal profit for a term of seven, eight or even nine years. A Question of Class. "They are constantly catching more grafters." said the hopeful citiaeu. "Not resalar grafters." answered Mr. Dustin Stax. "Those who get caught are only amateurs."—Washington Star. One cannot be and have been.- * French Proverb. Muscular Pains Cured.
