To Be Held Wednesday, Jan. Bth The death of Representative-elect S. J. Appleman has made it necessary that the county of Pend Oreille hold a special election to name a representa tive to serve in the session of the legis lature which begins on January 13th. Sec. 6898 of the Code of Washing ton makes it the duty of the Governor to forthwith issue a writ calling the election for the filling of such vacancy. In accordance with this provision Goy. M. E. Hay this afternoon issued the following proclamation: "The State of Washington to the electors of the Sixtieth Repre sentative district, of the State of Washington, Greeting:— You are hereby commanded to hold an election to fill the vacancy in the House of Representatives caused by the death of Hon. S. J. Appleman, which said election shall be held upon the Bth day of January, A. D., 1913. In witness whereof I have here unto set my hand and caused the Seal of the State of Washington to be affixed thereto. M. E. Hay, Governor. Attest: —I. M. Howell, Secretary of State. The law makes it the duty of the County Auditor to make preparations for the special election the same as for general elections, giving notice by publication and posting.

The holiday spirit of 1912 appeared te be abroad in all sections of the Newport district. The Newport mer chants were lavish in the display of their wares and reported business bet ter than for several years past.

Willie Hitchcock, residing on the South Side, was playing with an airgun on Christmas morning, when the gun was accidentally discharged and the shot entered his thumb, penetrating to the bone. Matt Smith, of Sandpoint, one of the leading farmers and hog growers of Bonner county, visited Silver Birch Farm last week to see the Talmadge herd of Berkshires, and made arrange ments to secure some of the fine ani mals being bred there. Dr. J. M. Semple, superintendent of the Eastern Washington Hospital for the Insane, reports that during the past two years no feeble-minded patients had been committed to the hospital, from Pend Oreille county. Duriug te same period this county had also failed to furnish any old soldiers for the old soldiers' or veterans' home. In that period but two small counties of the state had equaled this record. Considerable excitement was created on the streets on Monday afternoon by three intoxicated men from Diamond Lake district. One of the men became so bad that Night Marshal Rosenbor rough was compelled to take him to the station. On the way up the prisoner showed fight, and after a tussle the marshal got the man down, but the prisoner took a bite out of the officer's leg. The other men finally made their getaway in their sleigh. The prisoner was fined $5 and the customary trim mings on Tuesday. He had the neces sary and was sent on his way rejoicing. Doctors and Mustaches. English doctors who grew mustaches once ran the risk of spoiling their prac tice <>. W. E. Russell in "One Look Back" remarks: "Quite certainly tht first time I ever fell into the hands ol a inustached doctor was In 1877. Ev ery one condemned the hirsute appen dage as highly unprofessional, and when soon after the poor man found his way into a lunatic asylum neigh boring doctors of the old school said they were not surprised—that there was a bad family history and that he himself had shown signs of eccentric ity That meant the mustache and nothing else." "Conspicuous by Absence." Tacitus, the great Roman historian, was the originator of the phrase, "Con spicuous by his absence," when, de scribing the funeral of Junia in his "Annales." he said the images of her famous kinsmen, Brutus and Cassius, shone by their absence. Lord John Russell popularized the phrase in Eng land in 1859 by saying of Lord Derby's reform hill, "One provision is conspicu ous by its presence, another by its ab sence." Eye of a Horse. The appearance of "white" In the eye of a horse indicates a vicious nature, because a high tempered horse con stantly looks about apprehensive of danger or desiring to do mischief. The quick motion of the eyeball in op posite directions exposes an unusually large surface of the white, which thus becomes an evidence of the tem per of the animal. Canaries. Canaries are instinctively the most cleanly of all pets. They never drink from their bathing tub if provided with a filled drinking cup and unless they have been frightened by chilled or too cold water will bathe every day. — Woman's Home Companion. Sea of Galilee. The sea of Galilee, which is 800 feet fcelow the level of the Mediterranean, is fast becoming like the Dead sea, with dense water and salt formations on its banks.

"Nothing except my husband's nerve." —Detroit Free Press. A Joke Was No Joke With Him. Men who purchase country weekly newspapers not infrequently haw a desire to roll up their sleeves and do the work. Such a man, a Scotchman, was recently mentioned by E. W. Mil ler of Ottawa, 111., when a crowd of writers were relating experiences they had had. This man. according to Mr. Miller, turned to the managing editor— who went down to the editorial room at 8 o'clock every morning, by the way. wrote out the assignments for the day and then went out to cover them—and said he had noticed a col umn of "wee bit jokies" In other pa pers and thought it would be well if his new paper carried such a column. "But where,'' he asked, "can I get a mon to write 'em?" The managing editor suggested that the owner, being Scotch, write such a column himself. "Ah." said the owner, "I ken T'm a bit brisk o' the pen. I can write up the wee bit birth notices and the wee bit deaths and the wee bit marriages, but the wee bit jokle— mon. thot's dif fee-rent 1 can write bonny, but ! joke wi' great deeliculty!"—.New Yorli Tribune. Historical Accuracy. Perish the thought that the novelist or playwright should be tied down to historical accuracy! Lady Dorothj Neville quotes an amusing correspond ence between Bulwer Lytton and hei brother: My Dear Walpole—Here I am at Bath —bored to death. I am thinking of writ ing a play about your great ancestor, Sii Robert. Had he not a sister Lucy, and did she not marry a Jacobite? My brother promptly replied: My Dear Lytton—l care little for mj family and still less for Sir Robert, but J know that he never had a sister Lucy, sc she could not have married a Jacobite. However, this mattered little to Lore Lytton. for his answer ran: My Dear Walpole—You are too late! Sli Robert had a sister Lucy, and she did marry a Jacobite. So, in defiance of history, the plaj "Walpole" came to be written. Wellington's Wrist of Steel. The Duke of Wellington had only one vanity—his wrist was like steei. Now when he was given the sword of state to carry it was his infinite delight thai ae was able to carry it upright. All his predecessors had had to slope it toward the shoulder. He would go down tc posterity, he resolved, glorified by the power of his wrist. In vain Sir Thomae Lawrence pointed out that as a mattei of art it would never do; that the sighl of a man perennially carrying a sword from his wrist would fatigue those whe looked at his picture. The duke insist ed upon having his way. Lawrence did manage to smuggle in a cushion upon which the duke seems to rest his el bow, but close examination shows thai arm and cushion do not meet.—Londot Sketch. Liszt and His Cigars. Liszt, the composer, is said to have abandoned the habit of smoking as a result of a misunderstanding with the Italian customs authorities. He was accustomed to smoke but one cigar a day and on a journey to Rome had one cigar for each day of his stay in the Holy City placed in his trunk. On be ing asked at the frontier if he had any tobacco to declare he, absentminded, shook his head. When the trunk was examined nearly a hundred cigars were found. These were confiscated and their owner fined 500 francs. As a re sult of this experience Liszt made a vow never to smoke again. Rough on the Old Folk. "Mother," remarked a girl. "I think Harry must be going to propose to me." "Why so, my daughter?" queried the old lady, laying down her spectacles, while her face beamed like a full moon. "Well, he asked me this evening if I wasn't tired of living with such a menagerie as you and dad."—San Fran cisco Chronicle. Good Hunting.
