The local wheat market has been closed up simply because the coast market is also closed. While wheat has not been materially lowered in price the dealers are simply not buying for the reason that they have, been rnable to realize on shipments already made and, therefore, have no funds with which to pay for wheat if they were in the market for it.

While this locality has been visited with a few nice showers within the past ten days, the weather is now all that could be desired and, notwith standing the depressed financial situa tion and the congested condition of the wheat market, the roads are good and I wheat haulng still progresses about as | usual. ' Everywhere there is a feeing of confidence that the adverse con ditions are but temporary and this very feeling will have much to do with bringing about a spee ly return of nor mal conditions. The directors of First National Bank declared their usual dividends this week and passed $10,000.00 surplus account. The past year has been the most pros perous of any in the history of this in j stution. They report their deposits to j day as having reached the half million . mark, which is a great change from a : I few years ago. Ritzville is certainly to , be congratulated on the strength and , good management of its banking in stitutions of which the First National is the oldest, largest and the most I I broadly extended and is entitled to much praise. I " I White vs Chinese Laundry. New that the Ritzville Steam Laundry has changed hands and again opened ' for business there is no reason why : any of our citizens—and this means ; ! you—shculd longer patronize a Chinese | Laundry. In the first place, the man t ager, Mr. Swanson, is a first class Laundry man, having been for a number ! *of years foreman of the Hotel Spokane ' Laundry, and thoroughly understands ; his business. In the second place, he t has established here a business that has a good monthly pay-roll all ot which falls to white employees who I reside here and who will spend their money here. In the third place, patrons lof the Ritzville Steam Laundry need .; have no fear of contracting any desease ' brought here from the Orient because '; no oriental help is employed in or around this Laundry. That these pests i ha"e been scattered over the land from II Chinese Laundries is a fact that no | well informed person will dispute; can ' j you afford to take the chances when 1 1 you don't have to? Futher than this, it | is everyone's duty to, so far as practic ! able, patronize home industry. All money spent with us will, sooner or later, come back to you in one form or ' another, while the money spent at a ; Chinese laundry eventually but surely i finds it's way to China where we see I it no more. Which will you patronize? Our 'phone number is 156. Give us a trial. We try to please.
