Two per cent per annum is to be allowed on these de posits. No deposit is to be allow ed to exceed $1,000, and no interest is to be paid on any part of a de posit in excess of $500. The postal savings funds are to be exempt from detention under and legal process against the depositor, they are not to be subject to taxa tion by the United States or any other State. The Postmaster (ien eral is to deposit these funds in na tional banks, to be designated by him at a rate of interest not less than 2 1-4 per cent per annum. Such deposits are to be made in national banks in the United States and Territories in which the funds are received, as far as practicable in the immediate vicinity of the places at which the funds are received, if any becomes insolvent such funds are to be a prior lien upon its assets.

Dr. Bancroft Coming "The teries of lectures given by I)r. George Gilbert Bancroft have been intensely interesting and full of useful iuformaulon. He is a talented, cul tured gentleman of pleasing per sonality. He possesses ihe rare facul ty which enab as the clever lecturer to make what he has to say interesting in the highest degree.

Swingle, who is at Vancouver, say ing: "Everythingis (). K. for the Kennewick depot." We infer from the message that the oflieials of the Portland <fc Seattle have not only decided the question of putting in a depot, but it has probably been determined to build a structure on more extensive and beautiful lines according to plans prepared by Ar chitect Swingle.

Sarah Wright was up for trial lu Justice Richardson's Court and created considerable 1 »eal Interest and was largely attended. The de fendant was charged with stealing a pall of water from the Columbia Basin, Water Light & Power Coin pan} 's hydrant which was located on the next lot to defendant's place of residence. C.A.Cochran, manager of the Water Company was the com plainant. County Attorney J. W. Calllcotte of Prosser. appeared for the state and E. L. Kolb for the de fendant. Court was called Ht 11 o' clock but the defendant demanded a jury and adjournment was taken till 2 o'clock to summon a jury. No positive testiniauy was adduced in the trial by the prosecution to show any guilt on the part of the defend ant and the jury promptly brought in a verdict of "Not Guilty." The case seems - to have been brought on very insufficient grounds and was probably the result of misunder staningsand ill-feeling between the parties outside of the question at issue.

"Take care of the dimes and the dollars will take care of them selves" is an excellent maxim. You will understand it best after you have begun to save, and when you know that your little hoard is rap- Idly increasing.
