A deal was recently closed whereby the business of the Hayden Lumber j Co., with headquarters at Wenatchee | passes to the control of the Lamb-Davis people. The following is taken from I I the Wenatchee World of Wednesday: The Lamb-Davis Lumber Company of Leavenworth has purchased the entire business of the Hayden Lumber Company, and the retail lumber yards which have been owned and operated by the Hayden Lumber Company for the past six years, will be operated by the Lamb-Davis Company, having their headquarters at Wenatchee. The transfer includes yards at Daven port, Creston, Wilbur, Govan, Almira, Hartline, Ed wall, Harrington, Downs, Krupp, Ephrata, Winchester, Quincy and Wenatchee. Z. E. Hayden, who was the presi dent and treasurer of the Hayden Lumber Company, has been appoint ed manager of the yards. This transfer is one of the biggest ones of the year and means the en largement of the plant of the Lamb- Davis Company in order to handle the lumber necessary to supply all of the retail stations. The plant at Leaven worth is already one of the largest in the state and employs a large force of men. The Hayden Lumber Company has only recently moved its headquarters to Wenatchee from Spokane, and Mr. Hayden is making this place his dead quarters. Under the new arrangement Mr. Hayden will manage the retail yards from this city and this will con tinue to be the headquarters of the Hayden Lumber Company. The Hayden Lumber Company man agement wants to express its apprecia tion for the liberal patronage of the past and hopes that the new manage ment will have a continuance of the good will of the buying public. Neighborly Praise for Wenatchee Valley That Wenatchee valley has boosters that can "spiel" sorqe is an assured fact. We have been in some of the booms in eastern cities when we thought they were going some, but it was only a canter comoared with the Wenatchee valley product. We were in Sioux City, lowa, in the famous "corn palace" days when to buy a lot in the morning for $100, sell it at ten o'clock for $200. at twelve for 8300 and by six it had reached $1,000 was going some; when the hills and corn fields for miles around were laid off in "additions" and lots going like hot cakes. But these fellows would have to take off their hats to a Wenat chee valley booster and go 'way back and sit down. Apropo, the Wenatchee valley boost ing is of the kind that does good al though one may get tired once in a while of having it dinned in their ears continuously. However the Wenatchee valley apple is no fake and has been forced to the front where it rightfully belongs and will stay there. The adage to "hustle like h —l and advertise" has made the Wenatchee valley famous. But really, the great secret of their success is the method of caring for, selecting and handling their fruit; proper care and culture, systematic packing, and there you have it. The name "Wenatchee valley" now sells the fruit, because the consumer knows that he is getting just what he calls for and not a box with a few fine specimens on top and the rest an inferior lot. This is their way —and a good one. This is the secret of success in any thing and the Wenatchee valley is cer tainly entitled to boost and crow a little along with the boost. We cannot but admire, although at times we have to smile at their boastfulness. —Douglas County Press. Last week the Spokane Apple Show Committee of Cashmere turned over their surplus funds which amounted to $100 to the Cashmere band. The band boys intend to purchase new in struments with the money. STATE NEWS ITEMS Jim Goodwin, at one time editor ol I the Harrington Citizen and later of the Krupp Signal, has purchased the Big , Bend Outlook at Alraira. City Marshal Otto has had his hands i full this week looking after the case ol I August Abrahamson. a ten year old boy, who is out of the reform school at Monroe on parole and who ran away from home where he was living with his parents at Everett. The little fel low tried to rob the marshal while held in his custody, but was discovered in time to prevent his escape, and was taken by Marshal Otto to Everett. where he was turned over to the auth orities. This little fellow seems to be a hard case to handle as the lash of the law seems only to effect him for worse instead of better which makes it hard for the authorities to know just what to do. —Edmonds Tribune. Deputy Sheriff Fox brought up Eu gene Courtway from Columbia Siding last Friday, charged with illegal liquor selling. He was fined 825 and costs amounting to $10, which he paid. Two alleged holdup men were also brought along, who gave their names as Joe Brock and John Clark, but sufficient evidence could not be elicited to warrant holding them and they were allowed to go. —Waterville Press. Every railway station and freight depot in the state of Washington is to be examined personally by the mem bers of the state railway commission early in the year. It is now the plan to make the trip of inspection in a special train, as to visit every station in any other way would consume months of time. The stations will be inspec ted by the commission as to heating, lighting, cleanliness, sanitation, seating capacity and freight handling facilities. A formal complaint that will be the basis for the inspection will be prepared within a few days. Hearings will be held at each station and findings pro mulgated on the spot. The school directors and patrons of Berlin are having trouble, it being con tended that the directors are too lav ish in their expenditure of the dis tricts money. The Berlin school dis trict is in King county, and it is thirty miles long and about twenty miles wide. The Great Northern Railroad pays about 80 per cent of the taxes in the district. The school is furnished with rugs, fancy draperies for the win dows, an extensive library, a water and sanitary system of the latest pattern and a teacher is employed at $85 a month to instruct the nine pupils who attend the school. The directors started work on a gravity water system for the school, and some of the tax payers have instituted injunction pro ceedings. —Index News News Items From The Chumstick Valley So far in School district No. 22 there have been neither tardies nor absentees, which we think is pretty good showing. On Wednesday, January 6 the ther mometer indicated 12 degrees below zero. Some twenty five or thirty friends and neighbors gathered at the home of Mr. and Misses Peppmoeller New Years eve to watch the old year out and the new year in. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Brender, of Cashmere, who visited relatives at the Nine Deer Creamery returned to their home Wednesday. Ice harvesters find the ice about ten inches thick here. A box social will be given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred L. Brender on Friday, January 8, for the purpose of promoting the interest of the school library. Mrs. Chas. Kidder, wife of engineer Kidder , left Tuesday for Jaynesville, Wis., heT old home and will spend the winter there. When she will return to Leavenworth to live is not yet de cided. $1.00 Per Year TRAGIC DEATH Of OLD PIONEER John Miller Loses Life in Snowslidc on Chisbnas Day The body of John Miller was brought here on New Year's day from Red Mountain, where he was killed on Christmas day. He with John Bryer occupied a cabin on Red Mountain where they were engaged in doing development work on mining claims in which he was interested. Bryer, who dug his way out after five hours of hard work in which his hands were badly frozen says he and Miller were in the cabin reading when the noise made by the slide attracted their attention and they started for the door, about this time the slide hit the cabin and he and his companion were separated. He dug his way out and went to a near by camp and secured help and after two or three days work the body of Miller was recovered and brought here. The body was embalmed and on Monday taken to Wenatchee where it will be kept waiting the return of his daughter who is in the Isle of Pines, near Cuba. Mr. Miller was one of the pioneers of this section, having lived here some fifteen years. He was an enthusiastic prospector and is said to be the first man to discover mineral in the Red mountain district, some fifty-five miles from this place. He leaves a wife and one daughter, Mrs. Lottie Doyle, who has been communicated with and is expected to reach home soon. Mr. Miller was interested in some valuable mining property in the region re ferred to above and always expressed the most unbounded faith in the future of the Red Mountain district. Spends Holidays in Entiat Valey School Supt. Emmett spent his va cation at his fruit ranch in the Entiat Valley. He says most every body in the Entiat Valley seem confident that good times have come in earnest. Land seems quite active several trans fers having taken place within the last few weeks, and several new dwellings have been finished recently. Work is progressing on the Entiat Electric Power Co's big ditch and power plant which is being made of concrete. A steel wagon bridge is just being completed across the En tiat river about five miles from the Columbia. It is the general opinion that the Hill road will be built up the north bank of the Columbia soon. Some say the grading work will begin within a month. The Entiat valley produces the biggest, the reddest, and the best of big red apples —Wenatchee and Yakima not excepted, and with this new railroad, will come rapidly to the front. The Orondo irrigating project seems to be making but slow progress. It seems the promoters want something like $40 per acre for putting the water on the land and $15 per year main tenance fee. Only one signer had been secured by Jan. Ist. The Gains school is progressing nicely under Gene Skyles and Mr. Auville the late candidate for County Supt. on the Democratic ticket, seems to be having smoother sailing at En tiat this year. E. W. Emmett A fearful Threat That was a fearful threat one young gentleman of about eight or ten years made to another of about the same age near the post office this morning. Said he: "If you don't go 'long and tend to your own bizness now I'll twist you 'round your own throte 'til there's nothin' left of you but the ends of your shirt coller stickin' out of yonr eyes." —Exchange.
