The City Drug Store
Wishes thus to announce that
it is a candidate for the drug
store patronage of the people of
We do not come among you
with a great flourish of trumpets
or the idea that we are the whole
show. But quite the opposite.
And in our modest way make a
bid for business. Perhaps the
drug field is already well cover
ed by our competitor, but we
havo such faith in the future
growth of Leavenworth that we
believe there will bo plenty of
business for two drug stores.
It will be our policy to be ab
solutely fair with everyone;
treating all alike. It will be just
as safe for you to send your child
as to come yourself. We don't
want to sell you something you
don't want and will never mis
represent our goods. We want
your continued patronage, and
we will run our business to at
tain this end.

The Champion Liar
The snake liar and the fish liar both bowed In
gray old age.
Came traveling back from their journeys wide
from their word-wide pilgrimage:
A tear stood In the snake liar's eye, and
the flsh llir groaned with pain,
And a death-like look of Infinite grief came
over face ot the twain.
"I can not compete with the modern lie," the
sad-eyed snake liar said,
"In Its limitless length, and breadth, and
depth, and I wish that I were dead;
For I stand rebuked with a shame faced look
'neath the triumphant gaze of the eye
Of the newspaper affidavit liar with his cir
culation lie! A
"For the snake liar, and the fish liar, and the
horse liar own his sway.
And the easy going liars who work by the job,
and the liars who work by the day;
The traveling Uurs.old Inhabitant Har.and liars
of low degree.
And liars who lie for the fun of the thing, and
liars who lie for a fee.
"The horse liar, the peach crop liar, the sea
serpent liar and all.
With their wide, untraveled wastes of cheek,
and their soundless seas of gall,
All bend their knee to the sceptered sway of
this crowned and peerless one.
And the father of lies looks tenderly down on
his most accomplished son I"
HP Watui'l Quite Sure
It was a comparatively short
time ago that the old rules of the
English courts were in full force
and vigor in the conservative
state of South Carolina. Thus
it was distinctly provided that
each attorney and counselor,
while engaged in a trial, must
wear "a black gown and coat."
But on one occasion James L.
Pettigrue, one of the leaders of
the bar appeared dressed in a
light coat.
"Mr. Petligrue," said the
judge, "youhave on alight coat.
You cannot speak, sir."
"Oh, your honor, 1' Pettigrue
replied, "may it please the Court
I conform to the law."
'•No, Mr. Pettigrue, you have
on a light coat. The Court can
not hear you."
"But your honor," insisted the
lawyer, "you misinterpret. Al
low me to illustrate. The law
says that a barrister must wear
'a black gown and coat,' does it
"Yes," replied the judge.
"And does your honor hold
that both the gown and coat
must be black?"
"Certainly, Mr. Pettigrue, cer
tainly, sir," answered his honor.
"And yet it is also provided
by law," continued Mr. Petti
grue, "that the sheriff must wear
'a cocked hat and sword,' is it
"Yes, yes," was the somewhat
impatient answer.
"And does the Court hold,"
questioned Pettigrue, "that the
sword must be cocked as well
as the hat?' 1
ch —cr —h'm," mused his,
honor, "you—er—may—er,—con
tinue your ■ speech, Mr. Petti
grue. "
Near Ojjden, Utah—-Twenty-five
are Killed Outright
At Jackson, Utah, on a branch of the
Southern Pacific railroad, last Friday,
a car loaded with dynamite exploded.
A head on collision, caused by defective
airbrakes. The following gruesome ac
count is given of the affair in the dis
Twenty-five persons were killed and
twelve badly injured by the explosion
of a carload of dynamite eighty-five
miles west of Ogden. Eight of the dead
and five of the injured are Americans;
the others are Greeks.
The dead:
T. W. Burke, section foreman, wife
and three children.
J. W. Burke, ex general foreman.
W. L. Holler, messenger, Andrew,
Owen Derraody, conductor. Beaver
Dam, Wisconsin.
Seventeen Greek Laborers.
The injured:
Engineer Leina, slightly.
Engineer Stanton, not serious.
Conductor Courtney, slightly.
Operator Taylor and wife, injured
about the face and body.
Seven Greeks, serious.
The collision occurred between two
extra trains and was caused by the air
brake apparatus on one train failing
to operate. The concussion which fol
lowed the explosion was terrilic, every
thing within a radius of half a mile
being wrecked. The report y;as heard
in Ogden, eighty-tive miluo .'way.
Several outfit cars, occupied by Greeks,
were completely demolished ami the
occupants blown 61'veral hundred feet
from the track. The telegraph office
was shattered and Operator Taylor and
bit wife were injured. Foreman Burke,
his wife and three children, and his
brothel', who were standing near the
station, were shot "-JOO feet through the
air and instantly killed.
The town of Terrace, fifteen miles to
the west, on the main line of the South
ern Pacific, was shaken as by an earth
Where the explosion occured there
was a hole blown into the ground large
enough to bury a train, 500 yards of
track were displaced and three miles of
telegraph poles were blown down. The
dead were scattered for hundreds of feet
in all directions, and the majority of the
victims had their clothes blown off. One
Greek was found headless, and the chil
dren of Section Foreman Burke had
arms and legs torn off.
Of forty-six persons at Jackson's
Point when the explosion occurred, only
nine escaped without wounds.
Fragments of human bodies were
found the next 'morning a half mile
from the seetie. The wounded are in
the hospital at Ogden. Three Greeks
may die. The coroner's jury will visit
the scene and fix the responsibility for
the collision.
Somr i:.nni Rules.
Gustavus F. Swift, the late
head of the great packing house
of Swift & Company, Chicago,
left an estate worth over seven
million dollars. Perhaps Mr.
Swift did not enjoy all the pleas
ures of life; in fact, he was
known to have missed many that
even money can not buy, and,
perhaps, there are people who
believe that his mode of life was
not ideal, but he left to the young
men of the country—and some
old ones as well,—a greater lega
cy than can be measui'ed by
wealth. He left the example of
his life and the original maxims
which were his guide in building
up a great business. All of his
maxims have been collected and
are presented herewith:
No man, however rich, has
enough money to waste in put
ting on style.
The richer a man gets the
more careful he should be to
keep his head level.
Business, religion and pleas
ure of the right kind should be
the only things for any man.
A big head and a big bank ac
count were never found together
to the credit of any one and nev
er will be.
No young man is rich enough
to smoke twenty-five cent cigars.
Every time a man loses his
temper he loses his head, and
when he loses his head, he loses
several chances.
Next to knowing your own
business, it is a mighty good
thing to know as much about
your neighbor's as possible, es
pecially if he is in the same bus
The best a man ever did should
not be his standard for the rest
of his life.
The succesful men of to-day
worked mighty hard for what
they've got. The men of tomor
$1 00 Per Year
row will have to work harder to
get it away.
If the concentration of a life
time is found in one can of goods,
then that life has not been was
No man's success was ever
marked by the currency that he
pasted upon billboards.
When a clerk tells you that he
must leave the office because it
is 5:30 p. M., rest assured that
you will never see his name over
a front door.
The secret of all great under
takings is hard work and self re
liance. Given these two quali
ties and a residence in the Uni
ted States of America, a young
man has nothing else to ask for.
They say the postal depart
ment is after all those publica
tions which publish patent medi
cine advertisements that come
under the head of obscene litera
ture. This class of mountebanks
have of late become more bold
and shameless than ever. It is
said a number of so-called
reputable publications will be ex
cluded from the mails unless the
objectionable ads are cut out.
They say that of all forms of
dementia, the religious form is
the most dangerous. It would
appear that when they go crazy
about religion they nearly always
want to kill somebody.
They say "VVenatchee is just
now endeavoring to locate a beet
sugar factory in that town with
a fair prospect of success. When
those Wenatchee people want
anything they pull together and
generally get it.
They say that Messrs. Gray &
Son, of Entiat, have closed a con
tract with the town council of
Waterville to furnish that place
with electric lights. The lights
are to bo installed in eight
months. Messrs. Gray & Son
have a fine water power on the
Entiat river which they will de
Fresh eggs are plentiful at
twenty cents per dozen at Twisp,
says the News.
The Wenatchee Advance says
that the woods is full of candi
dates for office down that way.
If there is a man in these parts
who is patriotic enough to serve
his country in an office we have
not heard of it.
They say Mrs. Frazer, of We
natchee, presented her husband
with a fourteen pound valentine.
Since Sunday the day trains
have been stopping at Misssion
and the people of that town are
now happy.
They say Mr. J. M. Tompkins,
of the Farmers and Merchants
Bank at Wenatchee, will open a
a bank at Mission within the next
two weeks.
They say penitentiary made
brick are loaded on the cars at
Walla Walla at $6.00 per thous
They say work will begin in
the spring on an electric road

enport and some point north of
of Davenport on the Columbia
