Town and County Erneat ltl»n- The subject of this sketch whs born in Warren county, lowa, in 1*73. He received his education in the public schools of Blue Bpringl and Wymore, Nebraska. He was a student in the sta'-e normal school at Lincoln, Neb., and also of the Ifebraakß University. He la a jyratl uate of the state normal school at Chenv, Wash. Mr. Riste taught school at Odell, Neb., and re moved to this state in 181)9. He has * also taught at Medical Lake and Cheny, Wash. He was principal of the We natchee school for two years, and this year was employed by the school board as superintendent of the Weuatchee schools, which embrace three primary and grammar schools and a high school department. Mr.Uiste is comparatively a young * DM, He has made school work his life sludy, and that he is making a suc cess of it is indicated by his being em ployed for the third year by the Wenat chee board. Ho is a strict disciplinari an but is very popular with the schol ars of all the schools. The writer was a patron of his school | for two years and says what he knows to 1m true. If Mr. Riste lives he will in due time take rank with the ablest and most suc cessful educators in the state. No bet ter selection could possibly have been ■ made for superintendent of the common j schools of Chelan county. It will be impossible for Mr. Riste to make a can vass pf the county aud become acquain ted with the voters as his time is all taken up with school work, but tho edi tor of the Echo unreservedly assures every reader that no more worthy, cap able and in every way proper man could have been named for superintendent of the public schools of this county than Eruest Riste. Almost a Blaze What would have ended in a disas trous tire had it not been discovered just yi timejoccured in the frame build ing occupied by George Blocksedge as a news anil confectionary store on Front street last Friday morning about two o'clock. The fire had started in the ceiling above the rear rooru and was just getting under good headway when it was discovered by some one who was passing in the rear of the building who called Lee McMontague, who isemploy ed about the place. Willi a few buck ets of water which happened to be close by, Lee put the tire out. The fire did not start near a flue and it is somewhat of a mystery how it got started. A bunch of those sulphur matches which many paople use was found about half burned up in the ceiling. Whether they were placed there by design or whether they were carried there by mice or rats is not known, bnt the fact of the tire occur ng so far from a flue or stove pipe is v little ctrange, to say the least. Had the fire ever gotten started there is no telling where it would have stop lied. At least six or eight business houses would have been consumed.This ought to serve as a warning that the people of this town should organize for I lire protection. ' We will soon have an abundance of wa'er but we have taken no steps to make a proper and effective use of it. Without hose and without some kind of organization we will still be at a dis advantage in lighting fire-. It would seem with the recollection of the late disastrous consequences of fires, large ly on account of no protection and no organization, that the. citizens of this town would be prompt to act in this matter, an act together. People will soon have hot fires, many of them burning all night, and thai there will be tires is almost certain. We expect any night to be aroused by j the cry of fire. Will we <lo as we have j always done heretofore, just stand off and watch it burn, or will we do some thing to put out the flies and stop the loss? It is un to the property owners. Mr. Charles Albright sold bis city property Monday to Mr. Gottlcib K;iiser, an old farmer for many yeai s rt-lttlltg south of town, who with his wifti expects to spend the remaining years of his life a', ease in the city. While it is not ilertnilely determined it is probable that the new owner will move int) town before winter. Mr. Al hiight with his wife will visit Illinois j relatives ami then go to his new home in f^eavenworth. Wa-liingtoa.—Eiulora CKunsO. NOW*.' I Harried On Sunday night last, at 8:45 oVlock, at the residence of the bride's mother. Mrs. H. A. Anderson, Miss Emma Alice Anderson to Mr. George A. Blocksedge. The wedding ceremony was perform ed by Rev. W. S. Bixby, of the CoDgre gational church. The bride was gowned in white silk organdie and carried bride roses. The groom wore the conventional black. -Mrs. Robert Wagner, sister of the bride, acted as matron of honor, and Mr. George Ingraliam as be-t man. i 1 The rooms were artistically decorated with white chrysanthemums and ferns. No invitations were issued. After the wedding the contracting parties and a few friends and relatives partook of a wadding supper given by the bride's mother. Mr. Blocksedge and his bride took the early morning train for Seattle an& j other Sound point. They will be ab j sent a week. Miss Emma, as she is known by ev erybody, is an estimable young lady ! who has a host of friends. She was raised in this town, her mother came here shortly after the advent of the | railroad in 1892. Mr. Blocksedge is one of our enter prising young business men and at i present, is engaged in the confectionary business to which he has added tobac cos, cigars, books and periodicals. He I has lived here for four years. The Echo wishes for the young j couple unbounded success and a smooth ' voyage through life. John A. Gellatly, of Wenatchee, ac comranied Mr. Mead to this place last Tuesday and circulated among, ami got acquainted with a number of new peo ple as well as renewed hit acquaintance with many old friends. Mr. Gellatly"s knowledge of the duties of auditor and qualifications and fitness for the oHice makes him a strong candidate on the republican ticket. During his four years residence in the county he has made many friends by his uniformally courteous treatment of everybody who has had to transact business with him. If he is not elected auditor of Chelan county for the next two years it will be because republicans are not repub licans. A Sunday I>lrnl<- A party of some thirty-five ladies and gentlemen went \ip the canyon last Sunday to enjoy the delightfuly cool fall weather we are having these days and to get a last look at the ever chang ing color of the foliago before tho great panorama recieves its mantles of snow. The ladies of the party had provided a lunch, and after rambling around enjoy ing tho scenery, which at this time of the year is not excelled anywhere in the state, thoroughly wearied and with a keen appetite the party sat down to a most bountiful lunch, served in regular banquet style, on a table provided by mother earth. As one young lady ex pressed it, "the lunch dissappeared like 'due* before tho sun."' The gentle men present voted their thanks to th> ladies for the lunch and declared it was the greatest and best they had over sat down to. All who were present declared it was the most pleasant ilay they had spent this year anil only regretted that the ni".\r approach of winter would prevent (heir having another outing this year.
