RIBBON CLIFF GRANITE FOR COURTHOUSE —- There it to be no expense .spared by the county commissioners at this time as is evidenced by the following from the Wenatchee World, which show.- that plans for the four hun- j dred thousand dollar courthouse are going forward all the time. The ranchers of the county may be threatened with great losses through inability to sell their products, but our county commissiosers evidently can see no reason why they should . slow up on the erpenditure of public money, so difficult for the taxpayers to raise at this time. Monday's World says: The new Chelan county court house first story rusticated work, steps window sills and other facings will be j built of home-quarried home-cut I granite. For the first time, the ex- i cellent stone deposits Chelan county j possesses at Ribbon Clilf will be I used in quantity for building pur- \ poses. Saturday afternoon the commis sioners let to E. E. Towle, veteran | granite cutter, proprietor of the Northwestern Monumental Works of Wenatchee a contract for cutting the granite for the building. The am ount of the contract is $22,080. Mr, Towle has been a granite cutter for 45 years. Ribbon Cliff granite is among the finest material to be found any where. ■ It has been tested by ex perts at Washington State College and elsewhere, and has been found to be of a high order. It is a gray granite, and Mr. Towle says it is very well suited for the purpose it is to '».■ used. It is less hard than the stone found in the quarry near Entiat or that quarried from the deposit near Cl lan Falls. The county commissioners have, planned to use local products and lo cal labor as much as possible in tin construction of the new court house. Accordingly extensive investigations have been made by them and by the architects, Morrison, Stimson & Co.. with the result that the Ribbon Cliff granite was selected as suitable in every way. There are a number of excellent granite deposits in this county, but the Ribbon Cliff was decided to be the most available. Mr. Towle will start a crew of men at work immediately and will keep them busy all winter getting the granite out. His contract only calls for furnishing the material all ready to cut to the general contractors. The facing will be from four to eight inches thick. SNOW AT MINE. Jack Ruth, Homer Welsh, Ray Barnes, Phil Bowden, Herman Freuchtnicht, Fitzgerald and "Mirk ' ey" came down from the Royal De velopment Company's mine* Satin-' day. When they left there was about 1? inches of snow at the camp. At Little Giant there was less and when the rock cut was reached the ground was about bare with only »n iv in places as they npared town 1 h v walked down to Little Giant. wh?re the Dodge car had been left and tVen came the balance of the distance in it.

A] Hoffman ha? had inquiries for | basket ball parries this winter from ] both the Gonzaga and Knights of j Columbus teams, and it is about time I for the people of the city to take up | the matter and get organized if it is the desire of the city to have a team. The Echo feels that we ought to have a team. We still have some of the former players and there are others who could be found to make up a strong town team, and it will be mighty fine this winter if we can have a few games to look forward to as a means of passing the long win ter evenings. The Echo votes for a team. Bill and Tuffy Wunder, Bruce Smith, "Doc" Osborn, the Waldenbergs and Nelsons, are a mighty good bunch to build to. Let's get poir.p. LAKE' WEXATCHEE NEWS.

(ampbt'll Gives Them for the Good of the Public. Here are twelve known cancer facts. They are gathered by Dr. L. J. Campbell, Chairman of the Can cer Commission of the Medical Asso ciation of Georgia, under arrange nient with the American Society for Control of Cancer. 1. If an early cancer is complete ly removed, it will not return. 2. There is a time when every cancer can be cured, for it exists in what is known to scientific men . "precancer." 3. Cancer is first a lump or sore that "can be felt with the fingers or seen with the eye." or gives certair definite warnings. If we knew how to interpret these warnings, cancer could be cured. 4. Nine cases out of ten do not cause pain in the early stages. This is unfortunate. o. Cancer starts as the result of long continued Irritation, If irrita tion is removed, cancer will not de velop. 6. Cancer develops at the edge of a scar—where the scar and nont!:i! tissue meet. If the scar is remove 1. the cancer will not develop. 7. Certain defini'e symptoms pre cede every cancer, just as surely as wh.d clouds precede the rain storm. The time is coming when these symp toms will be heeded. 8. One hundred thousand people in the United States are annually af flicted with some form of cancer. This is on the authority of the Pub lic Health Service. 9. One woman in every eight, win is over forty years of age, dies of cancer. Three times as many women as men die with cancer between thirty-five and forty-five years of age. From that time on. the ratio is more nearly equal, 10. Every person over thirty-five years of age who is not sure about a lump, sore or unnatural discharge should consult a competent physician and demand a thorough examination. If the first doctor consulted cannot give a rational opinion, ask for a con situation. 11. Procrastination has caused the loss of many valuable lives. 12. Any doctor who tells you that he has a cure for cancer is a fraud. There is no such a thing as a cancer serum or any remedy that will cure cancer by being injected into the veins or rubbed on the skin. STATE NEWS NOTES.

RAW MATERIAL URGED. thi « idest market for artic les manufactured in the Northwest Is found for those which are made from raw material characteristic of the Pacifis North\vest, is the opinion of H. K. Benson, professor of chemistry in the University of Washington. He expressed 1 s idea in a paper before | the Northwest Rivers and Harbors | Congress at Everett recently. Two classes of such articles are pointed out by Professor Benson. The • consists of those which are made from forest timber such as. paper. ! charcoal briquettes, alcohol, rosin. turpentine and tar. The second class | is those made by the use of hydro • lectric power, such as nitrate of p] "-phorie acid, caustic soda, and hy- I drogen gas.

MAKES CLAIMS. Thouph there ha- been a gratifying reduction of deaths from tuberculosis in the registration ares of the United States in the last decade, when the rate was cut from over 200 per 100, --000 population in 1913 to approxi mately 80,000 live? last year alone, an enviable record has also been made in Washington, in the same period. In 1911, the rate was lOfi.l deaths per 100.000. while i? 1921 11 was 8H.07. a record that puts Wash ington in the croup of state? having the lowest rate in the United States. Considering this reduction in the terms of human lives, it means that if the rate of 1911 had prevailed for the decade, in 1021 there would have been 1-162 deaths from tuberculosis instead of the 1127 which actually oc curred, a savintr of ?..""> lives is 1021 alone.
