Following is the account of a happy, event which occurred last week, but did not reach us until too late (or publi cation: A very pleasaut surprise trai given Miss Nettie Davis by her classmates on March Blh, it being her birthday. The afternoon was spent in games suitable for children their age after which they wereeerved with lunch. The little ones then wished her many more happy birlhdays and departed for their sever al homes. Those present were: Vera Laughlin, Francis, Helen and Henry Carsten, Martha and Lester Hood. Lena Smith, Edna McGuire, Mildred Adams, Lester Farmer, Julius Sadoske and Bretla Shell. Each brought valuable presents. The Great Northern railroad had ten men and a team employed this week in putting ninety cars of ice into its Leav enworth ice bouse. This ice is shipped here from Montana. The blocks weigh about two hundred pounds, are three foot square and from sixteen to eighteen inches thick. People away from here cannot understand why we can not freeze our own ice right here at home. We explain this by saying up here the air is too light and the temperature does not get low enough to make ice. About fifteen feet of snow has fallen here since November first, but at no time was tfiere over two feet ou the ground and most of the time only about ten or fifteen inches. With all this snow, however, there has not beenadav when the men employed on the Lamb- Davis Company's dam have not worked in their shirt sleeves, and "perspired freely," said one of them. Down at Wenatchee and even at Mission they are more fortunate, there the tempera ture falls low enough to make •beauti ful ice." Next Wednesday evening Mrs. M. McLure will entertain the members of the Woman's Twentieth Century Club and their husbands. She will be assist ed by Mesdames Frank Sutton and D. H. Mayar. Messrs. Plisch <fc Bliss have found it necessary to build an addition to their store 30x84. with a basement.

On Wednesday erening at 8:80 a dis tinct trembling of the earth was noticed by many people . The writer felt the frame house in which he wu at the time tremble very distinctly and made the remark at the time that it was an earth, quake. This was confirmed by the Thursday papers which report that it was felt all over the Puget Sound coun try. In Seattle and Tacoma it must have been more severe than here as people are reported as having rushed out of their homes in fright. In many places two distinct shocks were felt. Here so far as known only one was no ticed which lasted about a quarter of a minute, and it was not so severe as to frighten anyone. All the reports from over on the Sound say that it was felt about 8:22 or eight minutes earlier than here. At Snohomish it was sensibly and accompanied by a dull rumbling sound.
