SENIOR CLASS PLAY.
The graudating class of the Leav
enworth high school will present "Es
meralda" in the gymnasium-auditor
ium on Friday evening. May 12. The
purpose of this performance is to
procure funds necessary to defray the
usual expenses incident to commence-
meut, such as importing a ipeaker,
etc. The class expect.- to follow the
custom of making all attractions of
commencement week free for all. and
hence solicit? the patronage of ■ ■
one for the p!ay.
The class of 1!I22 has found itself
somewhat handicapped for its ap
pearance in the .■ poken drama. There
were only ten in the class to draw :i
cast from, so that is the choice of a
play suitable in number of parts and
in characters to be acted there wa
somewhat of a handicap. Then one
member uked to he relieved of her
role because of throat trouble, and it
became necessary to a>k a member <'r
the Junior class to play the part.
However, everyone connected with
the play has worked earnestly an I
faithfully, and the daM of li' 22 will
do its utmost to merit approval in
"E-meralda,"which has stood the test
on the amateur and professional
stage for the past thirty years

HARRINGTON EDITOR VISITS
WENATCHEE PARK LANDS.
Editor Gay of the Harrington Citi

lows of his trip here, mention of
which was made in the Echo last
On Monday of this week the editor
made a trip of inspection over the
Wenatchee Park lands which are be
ing put on sale here and other places.
The lands lie along the Wenatchee
river a few miles above Leavenworth
and a trip by auto up the beautiful
Chumstick and over the ridge and
down to the Park, the present best
route, is one of unalloyed surprise
and pleasure. Starting from Leav
enwoith about 11:30 a. m., our party
of eight arrived at the M. A. Peters'
ranch in time for late dinner, and
such a dinner: Potatoes, string- beans,
earned corn, ham and gravy, green
onions, hot biscuits, salad, coffee,
cake and plums—most of which were
grown on the ranch—were among the
Ins. hot that the hospitable Mrs.
and plums—most of which were
in on the ranch—were among tin
I things that the hospitable Mrs.
Peters spread before us. After din
ner a trip w&s made up to the head
of the big ditch, where the water is
taken out of the Chewawa river
which flows into the Wenatchee. This
is a splendid stream with water
enough for several irrigated projects
and the big ditch, which is all com
pleted, has enormous capacity and is
very substantially built. Thp lands
under the project, lie in benches on
each side of the Wenatchee river and
there is already a fine settlement es
tablished, with mail deliveries three
times a week and a school house with
14 children attending, the building al
so being used as a church. These
lands sell for $165 an acre in easy
payments and with each acre goes a
share of stock in the ownership of
the water system and the water
rights of the Chc-wawa, the idea be
ing that when all the lands are sold
the farmers will then own the system.
These lands were logged off several
years ago and at the brush is not
heavy the task of clearing it compar
atively easy. One man cleared 7 acres
last win!. : Mr. Peters says that
the labor and powder cost him $68 an
acre to clear his place.'
Once cleared the land is immediate
ly ready for crop growing and the '

of Funk, Nebraska, were quietly mar

the M. E. parsonage, the Rev. Wm.

the evening was not so quiet ;i.- the
bride's host of friends in the com

gathered at the Saver home and
started an old-fashioned charivari
which happily ended in a gay party,
cood wishes and congratulations.
The bride is one of Learenworth'a

in church and the Epworth League
work, and ha.- a great number of
young friends whose interest in her
life will endure. The groom comes
from a distance and though "ot inti

Women's Civic Chili Cleared a Fine
Sum i.l Money to he Ised for
The bazaar given last Saturday by
the Women's Club was a splendid suc
cess and as a consequence the ladies
have a fine fund to be spent for im
provements in the city.
The scene of the bazaar (the Tho
lin hall over his billiard room) was a
great attraction to the people
all day and a thriving business wa
the result. The hall had been nicely
decorated and there were seven
booths where goods were sold, if one
may class fortune-telling a? "goods."
There were fancy articles—aprons
and work gowns and many little ar
ticles contrived by the women: all
kinds of edibles; a waffle booth; the
"fish-pond," presided over by the
Giri'l Civic Club; and several others;
and all were under careful manage
ment. The waffle layout seemed a
great favorite when the Echo man
was at the hall and the ladies in
charge could scarcely keep up with
the demand. The food booth was al
so a favorite and cakes, pies and oth
er foods sold like tickets to a crcus.
Earlier in the day there had been a
rush at the dry goods booth, and later
the fish pond and dance drew their
share. In fact every booth did all
that was expected in raising the sum
which totaled about $700 and left a
profit of $500 or more, exact figures
not being available at this writing.
Tickets were given with each pur
chase in some departments and sev
eral prizes were given away, among
them being a large home-made rug.
a quilt and many other lesser articles.
The Boy Scouts, just organized,
rendered the ladies much assistance
in doirg errands and '.he Club wishes
to express their appreciation of this
MARRIED AT WENATCHEE.
A very pretty wedding ocurred
Sunday evening at 5:?.O in Wenatchee
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. M.
Murphy when their niece. Miss Bon
ita Jeane Murphy of Seattle, was
married to Mr. Raymond Trainor, al
so of Seattle, but who is employed by
the Great Northern Lumber Co. at
Leavenworth. They were attended by
Miss Mayme McNeil of Wenatrhee
and Mr. C. R. Carston of Leaven
After a short wedding trip they
will make their home here in Leav
pend on four or five tons an acre.
This valley i- especially recommend
ed for diversified farming but Mr.
Peters, who has lived there eight
years, says fruit prows well there
too and he has planted several acres
to crab and duchess trees. 1 meas
ured one limb that showed a 5-foot
growth in one season.
Market! for farm produce in that
region arc excellent. In the bier ap
ple districts about all they raise is
apples and all kinds of hay, dairy and
garden produce are shipped in and
sell at splendid prices. One of the
stores in Leavcnworth told me that
they shipped in from $800 to 11000
a month of butter, ecus and dairy and
garden products. In addition to this
there are several logging camps near
the park and some mining: camp
that furnish markets as well as op
portunity to work for the residents
of that region.
A. C. Barclay, proprietor of the
Barclay hotel at Leavenworth, was
our driver and he is some driver. The
way he would dash around those
mountain roads in his fast Franklin
car was enough to make one's hair
stand on end, but he is a master of his
car and kept all four wheels on the
ground at every turn. At one place
we nearly ran down a bij» blue
grouse and on the return trip, when
rounding a turn, came in full sight
of a fine big whitetail deer that
would dress about 160 pounds. Other
members in our car included J. B.
Leffelbein, of Odessa, George Curtis,
late of Alaska, where he lived 20 odd
years (and was full of wonderful
stories) and K. R. Tyler, .-ales agent.
On Sunday Alfred Hose of Har
rington, visited the park and imme
diately contracted for IS 1-.' acres. "I
have been all over the west this side
of the Mississippi river and I have
never seen any thing I liked any bet
ter. I think the noil there in better
than at Wenatchee." Mr. Hose plans
to go on his place this fall if possible.
