Tbe flub Picnic It was said last week that the ladies of the Twentieth Century Club, accom panied by a few friends would spend last Friday up in the Tumwater. The ladies did not get of as soon as they ex pected to. Did a fishing or picnicing party ever get off on schedule time? Well, hardly ever. Instead of getting off by daylight, and making crue the things the Echo said about them they iv fact wailed until about nine o"clok, one had forgotten her gloves and had to go back for them, another had forgotten her lunch box, still another had to go back and give final instructions about the children, and still another had to go back and tell her husband if she did not return by six o'clock to come after her. After a lot of talk the party got off. J-iSt what took place is hard to find out. A Great Northern watchman came into town about two o'clock and said he had been driven from his cabin by a howling, screeching lot of Chinese Boxers who tswoor>ed down upon him with clubs and stones. The Jap section gang encountered the party about three miles up the canyon and beat a hasty retreat, declaring they would rather face a regiment of Cos sacks. In a little while they had the canyon to themselves and proceeded to enjoy themselves in their own sweet way. Some of the ladies showed con siderable single handed terpsichorean ability, says Mrs. Grundy. At climb ing trees they were all a failure. As sprinters they made a fair showing, and at lunch time they were all on hand with an astonishingly keen appe tite. One lady is said to have disposed of eight hard boiled eggs with an ac companiment of sandwiches, pickles, cake and five cups of coffee. So far as can be learned they one and all devel oped an unusually good appetite. The party returned at six o'clock looking like willed sunflowers but in the best of spirits, declaring they had had a great time. Oar Future Governor In Town Mr. A. E. Mead, of Bellingham, the re publican nominee for governor, siop ped over in our town last Wednesday and spent a half hour with the editor of the Echo talkiDg over the situation in Eastern Washington. He spent the last ten days on the east side getting acquainted and looking over that por tion pi the state with which he has not hitherto been so familiar as the west sid.. He has lived in Washington for the past -eventetn years. He impressed us M a man who would make a good inii'i-e.-dion wherever he goes. He has that frank, easy manner which is cal culated to please. Mr. Mead says he found the people of Eastern Washington in a fairly good poltical humor aud has not the least doubt of the success of the ticket. After the campaign opens he will likely visit our town again when we hope to heal' him discuss campaign issues. The denizens of this portion of God's footstool are enjoying the most perfect weather that could be imagined. Cool nights, not cold, but just cooi tnough to sleep under light covering. The mornings are just perfect, and the lag gard who does not get up occasionally to see the sun rUe misses a most splen did sight as the sun creeps above the tree tops that fringe the hills to the east,and with his arrows of light chases the shadows from the Cascade moun tains on the west, throwing over ail that purple veil that artists try in vain to imitate. A: the sun rises higher and the tir»l rajs strike the valley across the lake and riv<.r there is such a, kaleidoscopic change of colors, lights und shadow*, with a background of I r. = ht emerald green thai is truly beau tiful. Try it sume morning. Get up bcfoie the tun and take a commanding position from which you can obtain a full view of the valley aud if you are not anipl.) repaid for the loss of your second morning nap—well, all we have to say is, you are tit only for "treasons, strati-gems and spoils." Mr. Davis, juuior member of the Lamb-Davis Lumoer Company, und geueral manager of that company's business iv Washington, received a very bevere and painful injury last Sun day morning from the effects of which ho wil! lose several teeth. It appears he was trying to break one of the horses that"belong to his buggy team, to ride. Perhaps it would be more cor rect to say, break the horse of a trick he has of rearing up »l>eu anyone is on its back. A young man had gotten on it, and Mr Davis was trying to start it off when it reared up and struck him square in the face, knocking him down wuh the resu.t stated. For several duysuunug the first part of the weeU Mr. Davis was confined U» the house. L-w Bowman paid our town a visit ibis week. He is rustling lift) insur ance. >li*= Mack, from Spokane, is visiting Mr. auu Mrs. James Clark, who live on tdt Chumstick. The Ladies Guild will meet with Mrs. Mackey next Thursday afternoon. Mrs. F. S. Taylor returned to the hospital at Wenatchee last Monday. Miss Cora Aspen, of Peshastin, has been visiting with her friends, Misses Mary and Susie Briskey. On Friday morning last Willam Bris key, the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Briskey, returned home from Vancouver, where he had been attend ing school. Dave Phillips, whose home Is near Mission, but who for the past three years has been connected with the fish hatchery up at Chiwaukum, spent a few days in our town this week. J. C. Davis' residence on the north side has undtrgone v complete change during the past two weeks. Mr. Davis now has a very neat and attractive cot tage. When ffnished it will be one of the neatest residences in that part of town. A. S Huffmaster and wife in Rose valley, on Beaver Creek, about sixteen miles from Leavenworth, were trading in to n last Wednesday. Mr. HufT ma-ter came over from the Sound coun try last month and expects to make this his future home. J. A. Gould, clerk af the Great Northern store went to Spokane last week returning Saturday with his wife who has spent the last four or five months at Lind, Wash., with her rela tives. Mr. Gould and wife have gone to housekeeping on the north side. H. S. Irwin, the Blewett merchant last week bought the Leavenworth and Blewett stage line from G. N. Watson. He will also carry the mail from here to Blewett and Peshastin. The stage goes out loaded to the gurads every morning with passengers and freight. Mr. and Mrs. G. N. Watson left yes terday for the Sound, where they will spend the next two months visiting among friends. Having been confined rather closely to business for the past few years Mr. Watson thinks he deerves a rest. The Echo hopes he and his wife will enjoy their visit and return to Leavenworth full of energy and a de termination to remain here. Matt Green, the man who owns a large fruit ranch near Mission and re turned from British Columbia some three weeks ago died last Tu-sday evening. Death was eue.toan injury which he received while wwrftingin the mines up north last year. He was said to be the first white suit er In the Mis siou valley, going there in 1884. The land which Sullivan claimed to have a deed to from Green was quit claimed to Green before he died. The Lumb-Davis mill made several trial runs this week. The machinery tequired several minor changes and al terations, all of which have been made, and next week the. work of reducing logs to lumber will commence in good hard earnest It was shown quite clearly to the scribe of the Echo that one* everything gets to running smoothly, and boih band 6a\vs are in operation lumber can be turned out at an astonishingly rapiil rate. The ice cream =al^ which was gotten up by the ladies of the Degree of Honor and niven last Monday afternoon and night was a success beyond their expec tations. Over seventeen gallons of ervam and large quantities of cake was disposed of besides large quantities of coffee. Tiie ladies worked indefatig ably for the success and satisfaction of their patrons and deserve all they got out of the venture. All who were so fortunate as to patio ilce them got their moneys worih. Dr. Triem and wife of Manchester, lowa, ur« here on a visit and expect to remain B;vera: months. The doctor on 11* a place up in the Chumstiek val ley near his sou. Paul Treim. The Doctor i- also a member of the lowa State Medical Board and for a number of years has attended very closely to his profession, so close, in (act, that his health has become somewhat impaired and h« is out here for rest anil recrea tion. The Echo hopes that lie may find the climate so beneficial that he will finally decide to locate here. His wife is a daughter of Mrs. Sales, who is also a resident of Chumstick valley. On last Tuesuay morning while Uncle John Holden's wagon in front Mrs Huston's rooming house little Sammy Huston climbed up on the wheel, and when the Warn started he was thrown under the wagon, the hind wheel pas sing over his head, breast and leg. It was feared that the heavy wagon would certainly criiSD him badly, if not kill him, but strange to ray he escaped without a scratch, and in ten minutes was ready to repeat his experience. The average boy is surely protected by providence. otberwi>e more of them would get crippl- d or killed. Take your watch and jewelry repair ing to V. S.

WENATCHEE LETTER (From our regular correspondent); The graduating exercises of the Eighth Grade were held this afternoon in Rarey's hall and there was a large crowd out to hear the speaking D. A. Beal and family returned from the east last Monday, where they had been visiting their relatives. Mr. Beal says that businessseems to be very dull in the eastern state 9. On Tuesday night the M. W. A. lodge of this place gave a social in Rarey's hall. There was quite a crowd of young people there, as well as older ones, and they all reported a good time the fore part of the evening was spent in playing games after which ice cream and cake was served. The young folks then spent the remainder of the even ing in dancing, in which some of the older ones Joined. Decoration day was observed here in Patriotic style. In the fore noon the Civil Army Veterans, the womans relief corps and some school children went to the cemetery and decorated the graves of the dead soldiers. They were acompanied by a squad of High School Cadets who fired a sa lute over the graves. In the afternoon, about two o'clock the parade was form ed at the city park,with the VVenatehee band at the head, followed by the High School Cadets, civil army veterans, woman's relief corps, Spanish-Ameri can soldiers, sons of veterans, VVenat chee tire department and then school children. The, speaking took place in Griggs block. Although the buildii g is a large structure, the lower part was tilled to overflowing. It was opened by a prayer by Rev. Hilton of the Episco copal church. The band rendered some patriotic music which was followed by a pong by eight scholars of the graded school. Miss guilder of the High school delivered a very fine original oration which was well received. Key. Kufus, of the Methodist church, and Rev. Stevens, of the First Christian church spoke during the afternoon. Taking it all in all, it was the most successful decoration day exercises ever held in Wenatchee. Judge King went down to Mission last Sunday to attend the decoration day services and deliver an addreai on the occasion of the celebration of that event on Monday. We have not seen a copy of the Judge's address, but learn from those present that it was unusual ly line and was listened to with atten tion. A club was organized Wednesday nt the home of Elsie AnderMD, and was called the Busy Bee Caib. There were eight girls present. The oflic-rs elect ed were: E'sie Andersen, president: rtessie Walker, vice president; Elma Turner, secretary: Myrtle Wall, assis tant secretary; Minnie Waldenberg. treasurer. The club will meet next Wednesday, at 2p. ra., with Bessie Walker. Messrs. Clark & Parker, two young men from Seattle, have during the past two weeks taken quite a number "f views of the scenery in and around Leavenwovth. We have seen .-everal, and they were very fine. One of the valley in which Leavenworth is located is particularly fine. Some time in the near future we shall have a half tone made of this and print it in the Echo, a long with several others of scenes in and around town. Leavenworth's base ball team went down to Mission last Sunday to piny the return game. The score resulting in defeat for our boys by 14 to 8. Of course our boys can explain all this, but we have been too busy to hunt them up and get the facts. One of them told us the umpire was against them every time, that if they had just had their own umpire along the thing would have come out altogether different. As it now stands it is horse andTioroe. Now for the rub. The society editor of this paper got a tip a few days ago that Mr. Charles Bliss, the junior member of the firm of Plisch & B iss, one of our enterprising business firms, would arrive next week from New York, and that he would not be alone but would bring with him a charming young lady from the Empire state. He hailed from that state, and had not been here long be fore he realized that it was not good for man to be alone, acting on this real ization he has gone back and taken un to himself a wife. His many friends here will give him and his wife a hear ty welcome on his arrival, in which the Echo will join. An) thin:: Thats made of Iron or steel from a knitting needle to a sieam boiler.

The band boys have made arrange ments and have gone to work on a pa villion 40x60 near the right of way op posite Losekamp's store. It is to be well and and substantially built. The foundation is to be very substantial and the floor double. It will be so arranged that the whole can be closed in with canvas curtains In the event of wind or rain. It will be used by the band to give concerts and dances, and also for public meetings and political speaking. Jack Smith is said to be one of the prin cipal movers in this public necessity. Since the fire last January there has not been a room in town where a pub lic meeting,could be held.

Harry Dean is one of those enthusias tic sportsmen who is fond of wing shoot ing just because he loves sport, and scorns to take a bird in any other way than on the wing. For some time ho has been endeavoring to get those who are fond Of the sport to form a gun club, and to that end bought at is own ex pense a trap and a barrel of clay pig eons, and appointed last Sunday as the time of meeting and the place a piece of sandy ground just beyond the mill. Ho even hired a team and put up seats for sponsmsn and spectators. He waited two hours or more and not a sport put in his appearance, then he left in Uis* gust. Since writing the above we learn that a meeting was held on Wednesday eight that resulted in the organization of the Leavenworth Gun Club. We will pub lish a list of the officers next week. L. W.
