A Case ol' Mixed Paint
A. Nevlow and C. A. Nerring, two
rival painters from Hover, have been
figuring in the police court lately.
Down at the windy village they had
pulled oft a rag chewing match about
i lie qualities of their rival brands of
paints Nevlow took 100 pounds of
paint, which he claimed belonged to
him, out of Nerriny's shop and the
latter missing it, assaulted Nevlow in
the Columbia saloon at Hover. While
he was down Nevlow agreed to return
the paint, but afterward swore out a
warrant for Nerring's arrest.
The case was heard before Judge
Richardson who fined htm $5 and the
trimmings, totaling $19.00 which he
paid. Nerring then turned to the judge
a id said Nevlow was carrying a gun
which he had pulled on hira on two oc
casions and he wanted a warrant to is
sue against Nevlow for carrying con
cealed weapons. It was done. Nev
low plead guilty and judge assesed the
minimum fine of $20 and costs, aggreg
ating $29.80. The money in each ease
goes to the school fund. Thus do the
Hoverites help educate our children.
A T-h-r-i-l-l-i-n-g Rescue
The launch the "Richland Flyer"
met with a mishap Monday while
on the up-river run. When about half
way to Richland the sparker on the
engine refused to spark, or the muffler
wouldn't muff, of something or other
caused the engine to balk. The swift
current carried them hack downstream
unt'l they humped up on a rock in
mid stteam and there thev stuck.
Their signals of distress were seen
from shore and the crew of the Breezy
Blnffs life saving station, composed of
Capt. John Mounsey and able seamen
Carl S hrader and Jimmy Morrison,
heroically, gallantly and daringly put
off to the rescue in a small boat and
after herculean efforts succeeded in
safely landing the eight passengers,
three of whom were ladies After the
launch had thus.been lightened, C ipt.
Frost and First Engineer Penn got her
off the rock and steamed on to Rich
land. while the passengers came back
to town.
Electric Frost Alarm.
For some years past truit growers
have been using modern appliances
and methods to prevent damage by
frost to early fruit buds. To know just
when to use them is essential.
Gust Henke and John Mertes are
among the first in the Kennewick val
ley to secure an electrical frost ther
mometer. This is an aneroid thermom
eter set up out in the berry patch or
orcliardand connected by copper wires
with an electric l»el! and its necessary
batteries in the sleeping rooms, so that
when the bell rings he will be aroused.
The jjaugtj pin t which is attached to
the wires, is set at a poingon the gauge
ufew degrees above freezing. When
the temperature reaches that point the
steel indicator of the thermometer
touches the gauge pin, the circuit is
completed and the bell begius ringing
the frost alarm.
Warned by the bell that frost-bearing
temperature is coming, the grower
starts his smudge fires at once and
saves bis fruit. Large fires are practi
cally worthless, but a slow fire with an
abundance of smoke is what is wanted.
Sage brush and straw well mixed with
manure are the most eommou fuels for
i hese smudge fires.
Messrs. Henke and Mertes have the
alarm thermometer set up and in
working order and anyone interested
can see it by going to their berry
patches north of the N. P. track. The
expenses for the alarm and installing
it are small and heavy damage may
be prevented by its use. California
growers testify that the device has
saved thousands of dollars for them in
recent years.
