MEETINGS WELL ATTENDED
Increasing numbers has necessi
tated the bringing of more chairs to
the Congregational church where
Dr. Cairns is holding a special series
On Monday night he gave a strong
address on "Faithful Christian Liv
ing," as proof to the world of the
truth of the Christian religion. The
faithly and unselfish life of some
mother or friend is often more power
ful than the most eloquent sermon
in winning men in allegience to
Tuesday night the church was
crowded, many sitting in the aisles.
The subject was "The New Birth."
By many apt illustrations the speaker
howed the need of it in the fact that
when freed from the restraints of
home and society men not in touch
with God become rapidly more evil.
The conditions upon which God
works this wonderful change in the
heart of men were expounded and at
the close several requested prayer
and two came forward to express
their trust in the Master.
The meetings will continue each
night except Saturdays through the
week and Dr. Cairns will each even
ing give Bible lectures; also at 2:30
p. m. on Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday.
MAKES BRIDGE A CERTAINTY
The state senate last Friday passed
the bill locating the state highways.
The bill as it went through makes
specific provisions for two routes
from Kennewick and Pasco to Spo
kane. In designating this as the
diverging point for the two highways
Kennewick and Pasco are assured
of a bridge across the Columbia.
Though no appropriation for such
a structure is expected at this ses
sion, it is possible that a small ap
propriation may be secured for a
preliminary survey, and that the
$250,000 appropriation will be se
cured in 1915.
HOQUIAM LAYIN6 BITULITHIC
With fair weather coming on,
Hoquiam is actively engaged in
street improvements. Business con
ditions generally in Hoquiam are
such as to warrant extensive work,
as indications point to a long period
of increased prosperity and activity .
The intention of the council is to
build carefully, with permanency,
as well as first-class streets at the
present time, as the chief object.
After making a careful study of
paving materials, bitulithic is being
used extensively. Bitulithic has
been found to be lasting and eco
nomical and especially easy on
horses and automobiles. Its past
record in many Northwestern cities
shows it to be well suited to the cli
matic conditions of this section,
which is a matter of importance in
THE KENNEWICK COURIER. KENNEWICK^WASHINGTON
In answer to the criticism of the
state examiner who filed his report
on the affairs of School District No.
17, last September, I wish to say
that his statement as to the absence
of warrant stubs covering payments
of school expenses during period
from Sept. 6, 1909 to March 5,1912
while true, is due to no fault of my
self or other directors.
The facts of the case are that on
September 6,.1909, the last warrant
was drawn on the old form, with
stubs, and every warrant drawn pre
viously had been registered on stubs
which will be found on file. On
September 23 we received ten books,
or 1,000 warrants and vouchers com
bined, without stubs, from the state
board of education at Olympia, and
were ordered to use them in place of
the form we had been using previous
ly. When we had used these, we
had a supply printed locally of a
similar form, but with stubs, and
this is the form now in use.
As every warrant which was
drawn without stub was registered
in a book which is now on file at
the office, and as the examiner was
acquainted with these facts, I believe
the-criticism in his report was un
fair and uncalled for.

London's Hot Baked Potatoes.
There are few colder places on a
winter's night than the streets of Lon
don. Naturally anything warm is wel
comed by wayfarers, ftoasted chest
nuts and hot pies stand high In public
favor, but the cry of "Baked potatoes,
all hot!" is peculiarly inviting. The
simplest form of a potato can—really
more like a box than a can—is of plain,
unpainted tin. not unlike that used by
the street pieman. In the central por
tion the potatoes are kept hot, while
in compartments on each side salt and
butter are kept. A large pepper box
usually stands on the top of the can.
A small valve lets out the •team, and
its whistling guides the traveler in
search of a hot potato. Street corners,
where an omnibus stops or near places
of amusement, are favorite spots for
the vendors of this delicacy. The sea
son lasts from the latter part of Sep
tember until about of March.
It is said that more than 3,000 people
gain their livelihood in this way in the
streets of London. «
Musical Sound and the Ear.
The well trained ear of a musician
can distinguish notes differing only
oue-bundredth part of a toue from one
another. Most people cannot perceive
a difference of one-tenth of a tone, and
a few can scarcely tell one tone from
another. The cause of this curious dis
parity resides in slight differences in
the structure of the cochlea, a wonder
ful piece of apparatus in the inner
most part of the car. It is a little
body shaped like a snail shell and be
lieved to be the part of the hearing
apparatus which recognizes musical
sounds. In its structure it closely re
sembles the strings of a piano and even
has a damper to prevent the mixture
of sounds quickly following one anoth
er. This little musical apparatus is set
going by vibrations received from the
middle ear or drum, and in some mys
terious manner it sends these on to the
braiu through the auditory nerve in
the form of musical sounds.
The May fly's life is complete in four
to five hours, during which it is born,
matures, loves, fights, mates, propa
gates and dies. The ordinary moth
lives three .to four days, the locust

fly six to eight weeks, male bees or
drones four to five months, snails two
to thi'ee years, queen bee two to three

Considering the fact that the aver
age man's age is only about thirty
three years, it will be seen that many
members of the animal kingdom have
a great advantage over the human race
in their allotted length of life.
Angrily the head of the haberdashery
concern storuled into the employment
agency and demanded an interview
with the manager.
"I understand," he said, "that you
have been recommending as A 1 col
lectors certain young men whom you
represent as having collected money
from us. If they can get it from us
they can get it from anybody. That's
the way you make it appear, conse
quently your clients land good jobs."
With visions of possible libel suits
rising before his guilty conscience, the
agent attempted self justification.
"You are considered pretty hard nuts,
you know," he said.
"Oh, that's all right," said the man.
"It ain't that I'm ticking about, but
not one of your men has ever collected
a dollar at our shop, and it don't do
any good to lie about it."—New York
It Might Have Been Worse.
Mark Twain during one of his lec
ture tours was waiting at a station
for a delayed train. The lecture com
mittee and several townsmen were
with him and talking their best to pass
the time away. One man told about a
frightfully unhealthy town he had read
about, and it was a grewsome tale of
dying and burials and that sort. "It
might have been worse," Twain fol
lowed. in his slow and direct manner.
"I lived in that same town for two
years, and I never died once—not a
single time." The way he said it
seemed to daze the crowd, and not a
man said a word in response. "Of
course you may think I'm lying," the
humorist continued, "and I'm sorry, for
I can't get any witnesses to testify
that I didn't, because everybody else
that lived there is dead."
Dr. Johnson and Tea.
Jonas Hanway was an inveterate foe
to tea and wrote a pamphlet In which
he ascribed the majority of nervous
disorders to tea drinking. He declared
that the practice was sapping the vigor
of Englishmen and spoiling the beauty
of women and expressed horror at the
fact that no fewer than six ships were
employed in the China tea trade. Dr.
Johnson, who reviewed Hanway's dia
tribe in the Literary Magazine, prefac
ed his criticism with the frank avowal,
"The author is to expect little justice
from a hardened and shameless tea
drinker, whose kettle has scarcely time
to cool, who with tea amuses the even
ing, with tea solaces the midnight and
with tea greets the morning," but even
he admitted that tea drinking was not
good for the working classes, as he
thought it an inducement to idleness.

Breakfast In Norway.
Home brewed beer has of late years,
says Harold Simpson in his "Rambles
In Norway," largely displaced spirits
as the national drink of the Norwegi
ans. It is so popular that it is used
even at breakfast to wash down the
stock dish—fried pork smothered in
onions. The first sight of a Norwegian
breakfast table, adds the author, is apt
to astound one. It is covered with
small dishes, principally fish—fresh
fish, smoked fish, fish in tins, fish In
miniature barrels. There are also cold
meats and an endless variety of
cheeses, of which the Norwegians are

From a Sena of Elaborate Chemical Tttit:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of .three different kinds of baking powder
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum —and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:
