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.

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

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

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.

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.
