WHAT SHALL WE DO TO BE SAVED? following article is add to the members of the units compris ing the Wenatchee-Okanogan i •■■■ ■ Federation, and was by W. F.

In order to maintain their value: '■n a level affordinp profit to the pro ducer, their consumption must b( Rpread out over a lonp 'period—l] > —from September to July. They cannot be forced into consump tion during the period when apple* from the low-cost district of the east and middle west are in free supply without sinking: to levels disastrous to the grower.-. Probably S'^r of all the standard varieties of Wenatchee apples an bought by the trade with a view to cold storage, Suitability for cold storage is therefore a very important element of value. If this quality is Impaired the loss in value fall? directly on the growen. In the last analysis, furthermore, the delivery to the consumer of the last apple from the last box of Wine -aps in July, in prime condition, firm. juicy and pood, is the idea! which must at least approximately be at tained if this industry is to prosper. Likewise, intermediate varieties — Delicious. Spitzenberg, Stayman an.! Rome Beauty—which find their prin cipal period of consumption during the winter and early spring months, must be so handled as to reach the consumer in crisp, sound Juicy con dition; not overripe, mealy and taste less. Does anyone think that we come anywhere near the attainment of this ideal? How many Delicious and Spitzen bergs are there now in this valley— other than the few cars in cold gtor aire—which may honestly be said to be in prime condition -uitalile for cold storaee in destination markets'? With the crntinuation of the car shortajre what will be the condition of the common storajre Delicious, Spitzenbergfl and other intermediate varieties when they eventually reach market? With the market already overfed and sick of ripe tv overripe apples, what, will he the result of the force sale of continuous supplies of the same sort of fruit ? Hew long will the people of this community stand by and, without a struggle, permit the continuance, each year, of losses by deterioration of product, amounting to hundreds of inda of dollars annually, these losses are strictly preventable " While it is a problem of every man and woman and child in the whole community, it in primarily a prob' lem— a life and death problem, if you please —of the growers.

It seems that he and Ollie English of Leavenworth and Jerry Young: were fellinp- trees and that when the one they had cut fell. another nearby, a dead one. was jar red so that it also fell and t them were caupht unaware of their danger. Mr. Stevenson's head was crushed an'! Mr. English sustained rather severe cuts and bruises, but evidently will come through nicely. The body of Stevenson was brought to town by the Leavenworth Under taking Co. and shipped Monday night to Snohomish where he was buried by the Eaerles. of which order he was a member. He was a .-inple man and about 46 years of age. He waa a Canadian and had no relatives in this country so far as known. CASHMERE WINS FROM LEAVENWORTH, ks TO fi. In a jrame featured by lonK end runs by "Skinny" Patton and "Dutch" Henry, and loose playing by most of the Leavenworth team. Cashmere defeated Leavenworth on the local grounds on Armistice Day by a score which leaves not a bit of doubt as to the superiority of their team. From the beginning of the game when Leavenworth kicked oIT to Cashmere's 30-yd. line, the larjre crowd which witnessed the game were never uncertain as to who !' was just a < .. --.ion of "how much?" Leavenworth's only score came when Leslie I h . ley broke tl and blocked ;, punt of Cashmere's. Walter Wade fell on the ball back of the (j.ial line. The stars for Leavenworth were Leslie Lingley and Leonard Brender. and for good consistent playing. Floyd Meirick. Elvin West, Rolx Brown, Varnard Gay, James Lear}' and Fred Ruth.

Pure seed is on the increase in the state of Washington as shown by re ports from county agents for the last year. During the year, through the efforts of the Extension Service. 242 farmers used 12,343 bushels of im proved seed and 94 fanners raised 33,914 bushels for distribution this coming year. There is no just reason why regis tered seed, or certified seed, will not i become just as popular as registered : livestock, for it ha.- been found that certified peed means better crops, larger yields per acre of higher j quality and more return* in dollars 1 for time and effort invested. SCHLAFLI WON IN 4TH ON FOUL The boxing card put on hero Sat lay evening as the windup of the Armistice Day celebration proved to i I he a pood one and the fan.- were more than satisfied. The attendance wu pood, hut at that the management failed to pay expense? a> expense had not heen spared to make this hip I event worth any man's membership fee. The windup of the card, six rounds of 3 minute* each, between AH Schlafli of Seattle and Leo Stoke.-; of i Spoakne, was a humdinper. thouph it ; ended in the 4th round, when Stokes fouled Schlafli. Stokes ha- <|uitc a j record as a pood fiphter. thouph one I writer, a St. Paul man we believe, said all he had ever hit was the floor, Nevertheless he is a pood boxer— a man of fine physical proportions an'i clever with his dukes—and he un doubtedly outweighs Schlafli by sev eral pounds, thouph they were an nounced as weiphinp 155 each. T! • fipht was a lively one, both men tear inp into it with their best. Schlafli. who had appeared hore before, was ! the favorite with the audience, and he proved himself a willinp scrapper i and ho oupht to pet on nicely in the pame—if ho will only keep his pant;- j on. Stokes and Schlafli both fipht ; similarly and do a lot of "in" fight- ' inp at which they are both good, > thouph the concensus of opinion was ' that Schlafli had a little the best of [ i it. In this "in" fighting Stokes/ struck low a couple times but . without doinp any damapo. Finally he seemed to deliver a hard punch j low and Ad jumped hack and claimed | a foul. The referee. "Punch" Raid- j win. introduced as formerly from I Reno. Nevada, pronounced it an acci dental foul and pave Schlafli tho de cision. The fipht by rounds: 1. Both men bepan carefully and soon were mixing it with mostly "in" fifrhtinjr. though Ad delivered a couple wallops to the back of Leo's neck which seemed to do no damage. The round was even. 2. There was again a lot of in fighting, but Ad grot a couple swings to Leo's jaw and Loo swung several times but missed most of the time a- Ad ducked. There was still not much choice, but Schlafli had the edge. 3. This was Ad's round, he land ing; many blows to head and neck, though the dark boy was coming .-trong and seemed little the worse for the pummeling. He was hitting Ad in the close work but doing no appreciable damaire. 4. They mixed and did a lot of the close work, but separated and \vc:re sparing when Leo cut in with B low left hand blow and Ad claimed a foul and was (riven the decision. Stokes walked to the front of the stage and stated that he had been boxing- for two year? and that this was the first time a foul had been claimed against him. statinir also that it was purely accidental and that he was sorry it had occurred. Stoke- is said to be a Portugese. The semi-windup started like it Would be good but toward the last it was disappointing. Fitzsiramona oi Wenatchee was pitted against Earl Miller of Spokane. Fitz had a lot of .-team and when he forced the fight ing delivered some hard blows to his opponent, but most of the time he seemed to be kept busy covering up. Miller, on the contraiy- was forcing the fight, though he could not g< • :■ a very damaging punch. Round 1. Miller placed a couple and Fitz came back hard. Fitz slip ped and nearly hit the floor. They exchanged light blows and the good ones. Miller's round. Round '-. They fiddled ;. neither doing much work. Then Fit? swung- to jaw: hit to neck: two to jaw just before the gong. Not much choice, however, as Mrller wa- hu.-y with his short jabs. Round 3. Miller forced Fitz to ropes. Fit-/ landed a hard one. but Miller forced him to corner. Fit then failed to bore in, was gettir" tired and continually covering 1 while Miller chased h;m about t' c arena. Round 4. Fitz could not get to go lag and Miller could not hurt him. ' The round was tame. Miller was riven the decision. 1 16 --Ib. clas.-. Ernie Daily, Seattle ,and Jimmy Cole, Spokane, worked while it lasted and cave a (rood exhibition. Both men pot in effective punches, hut Cole ap peared younger and stronger arvl forced the fight. Cole got several hard one- to Daily's nose and the lat ter forfeited the bout to Cole at the end of the second round because of his (Cole's) broken nose. Doc Snell of Peshastin i* a "com ing" boy. He went apainst Beit Lang of Seattle, who is a clever box er in the 125-lb. class, and for a time it looked like Poc would come off sec ond best. But Doc had a punch stored up some place and in the second i ound it broke out and Lang: went to the mat for the count. The curtain-raiser between Young Viter and Vie Walker, both of Leav en worth, was worth the price of ad ; mission. Each had a knock-down to his credit at the end of the first round. Then they waltzed throuph i three more rounds without hittinp the mat, tliouph they mixed it all the time. Viter was piven the decision. Vie said he had never fought before. Ripht now is a pood time for both to quit, for the fipht pame is a hard one and but very few make a creditable ! showinp in the end. Stanley Meredith, one of the well known railroad men formerly of I.eavenworth, underwent a very seri ou? operation some time ago at Van couver, B. C.| from which he is nicely lecoverinp. He had a piec? of shrap r>ol removed. Mr. Meredith arrived : here Monday morninp and has been visitinp his friends. BILES-COLEMAN Buy 500,000,000 FEET OF TIMBER The Biles-Coleman Co. recently j purchased 500,000.000 feet of timber i from the povernment on Moses ! Mountain. To handle this timber a ■ railroad will have to be constructed from Omak up Omak creek a distance of about 25 miles. The company still has timber enough to keep its mills runninp a year or two without i the new purchase and it is probable j fiat the first work done will be to I prade a railroad to the timber.

Johnson Post, American Legion, have to their credit the very successful celebration of Armistice Day. The great day started with a "bom ' bardment" that should have satis i fied all the "hard-boiled" doughboys. , It drove the dogs and cats "to roost" i before daylight and jarred the bil iousness out of nearly everyone so ! afflicted. It even loosened up some I coin that had been soldered down. J and uncovered some of the forbidden | vintages of a by-gone period, cached ; for special occasions. The program of races and sports j filled the forenoon hours and just be ■ fore noon singing and prayer gave a touch of solemnity to the day. The : dinner given by the ladies for the benefit of the hospital, at the K. P. ! hall, was patronized by hundreds, the hall being filled from 12:15 until 2 I o'clock. At one o'clock Mr. O. F. Gardner delivered a fine address in the park, : which was listened to with deep in ! terest by a large number. At its . conclusion the football game at Rec | reation Park between the Cashmere | and Leavenworth high school teams ; took place and this was attended by J about four hundred people. Cash | mere won easily, the score being 68 to 6. Following the football game other sports took place down town and dancing was enjoyed by those who wished, at the Tholin hall, where also the "pay streak" attractions were staged. The day was fine and warm hi 1 the the park was a favorite place for the greatest number of those present during the middle of the day arid the benches were filled. The celebration closed with the boxing card at the Scenic theatre, of which a separate account is given. All stores were closed all day Sat urday. CHELAN COUNTY RETURNS.

BE EASY WHEN BUSY ON BEES HE BESEECHES "Don't shake bees." B. A. Slocum. extension bee specialist of the State College, advised bee beginners at the recent bee school held in Seattle. "It makes them mad," he finished. "And besides ? beekeeper should nev er lose his temper." Mr. Slocum has a life-long ac quaintance with bees. Out of hi- ex perience he said: "After you have worked with bees considerably you won't mind their stings any more than a mosquito bite, and ultimately you will become im i mune to it."
