TOO MUCH OF A "LESSNESS" Doctor Diagnoses American Nervoussness With New World Physical examinations of 10,000 New York men from all walks of life during the last five years have con j vinced Dr. Louis R. Welzmiller physi cal director of the west side branch of the Young Men's Christian Association that the American men are deterior j ating. The caase, as he sees it, is the abnormal lives Americans are leading and the growth of a belief in drugs as a substitute for normal life. "We are rapidly becoming a race of neurasthenics," said Dr. Welzmiller, "just as Germany is developing a race of myopes. In Germany the spread of near-sightedness is attributed to the strain of German script and German type, with its hair lines and curves. In America, I firmly believe that the fearful growth of neurasthenia is due to what might be called our struggle for 'lessness.' " 'Less' is the great word today in our life. We want seedless oranges, horseless carriages, smokeless powder, noiseless rifles, stairless houses, and walkless means of getting to and from business. Business demands tireless, restless enery. And in our striving to get rid of every thing which impedes our speed, from the pits of fruit to the plodding horse, we are also gaining for ourselves restless lives of sleepless nights and healthless days. As our speed becomes greater our physical and nervous force becomes less, our ability to resist disease is less; we are less of good animal and more of the speed eccentric." —Washington Post. L. W. Bloom came up from Wenat chee to Sunday with his family. COUNCIL IN REGULAR SESSION Orders Election On Park Bonds and Ex- tends Sidewalks Council met in regular session Tues day night. Councilman E. A. King and Mayor Sampson absent. Council man Woldenberg elected mayor pro tern. R. T. King of the special committee on dumping ground reported un favorably on the proposition to use the gulch between the original town and the mill. On the bridge from the | Clifford hotel across the gulch to Ralston's addition he reported that the Lamb-Davis Lumber Company would contribute one third of the cost of a foot bridge six foot wide provided the cost would not exceed 31200. It was said by one of the councilmen that the bridge would be 700 feet long and 35 feet high at th highest point. It was finally decided that the entire council would act as a committee to examine into this matter and take it up at the next meeting. The following bills were allowed: F. J.

STATE NEWS ITEMS The Missouri River Valley is one of the most successful hog sections of the United States, and corn has always been the basis of this industry. Today one of the most popular stock-fatten ing foods in the Missouri river region is a mixture of alfalfa meal and sugar beet pulp, which is produced in Colo rado. Advices recently received from that state, show that numerous new mills are being erected, and certainly the Pacific Northwest should give this industry every possible encouragement, and this is particularly true since the great international concerns like Swift & Company and others have decided to locate upon the Pacific coast, and they are now spending millions of dol lars in building their plants at Portland. I A good reliable fattening food equal j to corn would make this section of the United States the very richest portion of our great Republic. The Hood River Apple Growers j Ass'n have just closed a contract for i 80,000 boxes of the growing crop, and j now have under discussion the sale of S 150,000 additional boxes. This will !be good news to all the' fruit growing sections of the Norhwest. Dr. Stryker, of Everett, with his family is spending a vacation here. Mr. Stryker is interested with Henry Tread well in a large flock of sheep which are being grazed near Leavenworth. MASS MEETING We, the undersigned republicans, believing that the voters and tax payers of the Second Commissioners District of Chelan county are overwhelmingly opposed to the re election of H. W. Otis as their representative in the Com missioners' Court of Chelan county do hereby call a mass meeting of said voters and taxpayers of the second district at the opera house in Leavenworth, Saturday, Sept 26 At 2 p. m. for the purpose of organizing a non-partisan anti-Otis club and to devise ways and means of bringing about his defeat at the general election in November. J. J. GRIFFITH E. A. KING S. P. BEECHER A. E. DICKINSON J. W. CORCORAN CHAS. FREYTAG Peshastin Precinct Leavenworth Precinct COUNTY NEWS ITEMS Rev. L. R. Kufus, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at The Dalles, Ore., died Sunday morning at the Gilchrist hospital in Wenatchee. He came to Wenatchee to attend the Columbia river conference and while here he became seriously ill from ■ something he had eaten. An operation performed to save his life at first was thought to be successful and hopes of recovery were entertained, but he died at 5 o'clock. Mr. Kufus was well known throughout central Washington, having been pastor of the M. E. church in Wenatchee for four years, and while there took an active part in the fight against the liquor trafic, which resulted in the closing of saloons on Sunday, the closing up of gambling and the abol ishment of the restricted district. About a year ago he was appointed minister at The Dalles and at the last session of the conference, in this city, he was assigned to the same pastorate. Mr. Kufus leaves a wife and two little children. C. J. Taylor of the depot saloon was arrested Monday by Chief of Police Ferguson for having his saloon open on Sunday. He plead guilty to the charge of having his saloon open, but denied that he sold any liquor. He was fined $25 for the violation of the ordinance. —Wenatchee World. A passenger coach named the "Red Mountain Railway" is on the side track at Wenatchee and was the cause of some comment by those who saw it. Many believed it to be a coach for the new Wenatchee Valley and Northern line, running from Leavenworth to Red Mountain. It proved, however to be a car from a branch line of the Great Northern in Montana, and was used to bring in a bunch of laborers for work on the Moses Coulee branch. —We- natchee World. Strangers in the Wenatchee valley are being treated to rare sights in the way of exhibitions of fruit grown in this valley which is being placed on exhibit in different parts of the city. Fruit growers have been bringing in displays of the wonderful growth attained by the peaches, apples and other fruits and local jewelers are offering prizes for the best displays put out in public. The largest apple put on exhibit this season was brought in by C. E. Lewis and it weighs 31 ounces. Paul Weigand let a contract the past week for a modern seven room residence on his lots on the north side of the track. Messrs. Featherstone & Rollins who have the contract, have already begun work on the buildiug. The building will rest on a brick foun dation and have ample basement room. All Horn* $1.00 Per Year Dies from Injuries Received in a Logging Camp C. A. Walsh, employed in Adams & Costello's logging camp on the Chum stick, about twelve miles from town, was brought to Dr. Hoxsey's hospital last Thursday evening suffering from a fractured skull and spinal injuries, the result of being hit by a log rolling down the mountain side. He died Saturday at 11 o'clock and was buried on Sun day in the Leavenworth cemetery. His father came here from Spokane in time to attend the funeral, and expressed gratification at the way his son had been cared for. A horse belonging to Messrs. Adams & Costello was so badly crippled at the same time that it had to be killed. Death of Elmer Abbott After a prolonged attack of typhc malaria, Elmer Abbott died at 4 o'clock last Saturday at the home of his father in-law, J. F. Pratt, at the age of 27 years. He was buried in the Leaven worth cemetery Sunday afternoon, a number of friends following the remains to the last resting place. He leaves a wife and brother. Mr. Abbott was a young man of ex cellent moral character with notions of propriety which governed his inter course with his fellow men, we say this from personal knowledge, having had some slight business relations with him in which his character unfolded itself. J. J. Abbott and wife from Mt. Auburn, lowa, father and mother of the deceased, arrived just before the death of his son. A. L. Mitchell, of Eagle creek, is an uncle of the de ceased, from whom we learned that Elmer Abbott was bom in Benton county, lowa, in 1879. The attendant was shewing the lunatic asylum to the visitor, and opened the door to the first cell. In side was a man sitting on a stool and gazing vacantly at the wall. "Sad story," said the attendant; "he was in love with a girl, but she married another man, and he lost his reason in grief." They stole out softly, closing the door behind them, and proceeded to the next inmate. This cell was thickly padded, and the man within was stark staring mad. "Who is this?" inquired the visitor. "This," repeated the attendant, "This is the other man." Night Yardmaster Nels Peterson re signed his position this week and de parted for Buffalo, New York where he will take a position with the New York Central. He has been succeeded by a most worthy and well known young man who has been connected with the Great Northern service for a number of years at this place, C. H. Nichols, and is well and favorably known among railroad men.
