Earl McAlpin a well-known young rancher of Richland, who waa married last Tuesday, will know better how to go about getting a marriage license if he ever has occasion to take out another. He came down last Saturday and got Jim Skirving to go with him to Pasco to get the necessary document. Though the court house was closed on account of the holiday, the boys managed to persuade the auditor to open his office and all was lovely until the official asked, "Where's the girl?" Blank looks from the would-be Benedict and his amateur assistant(?) to whom it had not previously occurred that the presence of the young lady, or an affi davit from her, was essential in a deal of that kind. So the groom-to-be went home license-less but it is supposed he took along all the necessaries on his next trip to the court house, for the wedding occurred according to schedule. We went down to "Wheat's" place one morning this week to get our mail and there, right on top of the heap, was a large, fat, imposing envelope in the upper corner of which was the in scription,. "From John D. Rockefeller, 26 Broadway, New York." Visions of prosperity leaped up instanter. Gosh himmel! A letter from John D.! What was inside that envelope? A check for a million, a block of Standard Oil stock bearing 100 per cent dividends? We carried the letter back to the office, unopened, walking on air and thinking of the latest model Linotype machine we would order at once, and the gaso line we would buy from our benefactor when our new Overland touring car ar rived. At the office everybody held his breath while the seal was broken and the contents carefully spread out to view. The epistle started off: "Dear Editor—l take the liberty of enclosing herewith a copy of a statement of the HLL that's new, fash ionable and in "Good Taste" you'll find among the 500 all wool authentic fab rics that we show for your Spring choice and selection.

One of our local milliners is quoted as saying that it's rausmit the Merry Widow and that the small hat is to be all to the pate de foie gras this season. However, there'll be no reduction in the size of the dent that friend wife's new spring lid will put in the old man's bank balance.

We do not take this to signify that our ranchers are not interested in the always interest ing talks by the state's experts, but rather that the farmer's time is more than taken up at present by the rush of spring work which has been held back until lately by the unusually hard winter.
