He in forms us that he will hereafter farm his land himself, and is now stocking it up preparatory to putting a good man in charge as foreman. The wheat market seems to be manip ulated, as it usually is, in the interests of the millers and exporters without any cohsideration whatever for the in terests of the grower. The state of the local wheat market this year looks very much like the local buyers were trying to recover some of their losses of last year's local tight. Mrs. Ed. Troyer and daughter left Monday morning for Newport. They were accompanied by Miss Alma Troyer who has been visiting in this city with her brothers for the past week.

She came to this city to receive medical treat ment under Dr. Hewit, and is now again able to use that member. The smiling face of county commis sioner H. J. Allert, of Menno, was seen on our streets Monday. Mr. Allert is one of our most prominent German- American citizens, and has proven him self a very capablt county commis sinoer, and the people will re-elect him to that office by a good safe ma jority. Adams county needs more of just such men as Henry J. Allert. The candidates of both parties are waging a strong fight for election, and the voters are being urged by personal solicitation and the presentation of cards, bearing the photograph, name and office for which the candidate is running, to vote the right way. Elec tion day is less than three weeks' dis tant, and the indications are that this will be one of the warmest campaigns for some of the offices which' has ever been waged in Adams county. On Monday evening the local assembly of united Artisans gave an open meet ing at Tinnel's hall. Dr. Thomason, the Christian evangelist now in our city gave a short bnt entertaining address. Miss Ethel Bevard gave a delightful reading and Miss Viola Wagner and Mr. DeGork rendered a beautiful duett. Dr. Eshelman of Portland delivered an interesting and instructive address after which all were served with an abundance of delicious cake and coffee. An excellent social time was had. A social gathering attended with pleasure that will not be forgotten soon by those present was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Hardt on Sunday afternoon and evening. Two events made the affair one of especial interest to the many friends in attend ance. It was Mr. Hardt's thirty-ninth birthday and also the day appointed for the christening of their son, Carl. Ger man families were there from various parts of the county, and jt was the ex pressed wish of everybody present that Mr. Hardt may live a hundred years. - Manager Canby of the Lind mill re ports that this year's wheat is making a stronger flour than that of last year, because it contains a higher per cent of gluten. Ordinarily No. 1 wheat here tests about 44 per cent gluten, but this year the grain, though shrunk en somewhat, shows 54 per cent of this constituent. Mr. Canby explains this by asserting that the loss of weight in .the kernel is due to a diminished amount of starch, not gluten. For this reason it takes about 15 pounds more of this grade of wheat to make a barrel of flour. Why not open a bank account?

Here we have another example of charity unappreciated and of kindness unrewarded, and it is very probable that Charles Gray, the colored prisoner charged with attempted larceny, but who was acquitted recently in the su perior court here, will not be seen in this vicinity again. Gray was what is known in court parlance as a "pauper criminal," a man charged with crime and having no money with which to employ an attorney. Judge Warren appointed Attorney W. W. Zent to rep resent Gray and he succeded in secur ing an acquittal. After the trial Zent asked Gray to split some wood but the darkey replied: "No, I guess not, Ritzville don't look good to me, I'se gwine to Spokane." High School Football Game. R. H. S. • 6 D. H. S. 5 The Ritzville High School won the the first game of the season from Davenport by the small margin of six to five. A squad of about twenty boys made the trip to Davenport to open the football season for the local High School and for Davenport, and to get even for the score Davenport made on their trip here last falfc The weather was.perfect i'orJ'ooiball, a ,I'ght rain had fallen and settled ;the dust and made the field firm "'and both teams were in fine condition. Capt. Fletcher of Ritzville won the toss and chose the south goal, then began a series of line"bucks and end runs^that' kept the ball about in the middle of j the fi«ld. Under the new rules in the side in pos session of the ball must advance it ten yards or forefeit the ball. Both teams had difficulty in making their gains by line bucks or end runs. Kagle for Da venport made gains on his end runs until Lewis and Newland discovered a way of stopping him. The only ex citing time of the first half was when Davenport got within one yard of our goal, line in a foul and the Ritzville team held thom for downs, received the ball and advanced it to their twenty-five yard line the first down. The first half was called in twenty minutes, no time being taken out in the entire half. The second half was more interesting. Davenport had the south goal and the benefit of the wind and in about four minutes after the whistle blew O'Leary carried the ball over for a touch down, and attempt to kick goal was a failure and the score stood five to nothing in favor of Davenport. After the goal the teams changed goal and Ritzville kicked off, Davenport returned the ball to the center of the field where they were held for downs. Couch took the ball around their right end for three yards, then the ball was passed to Hel me for a punt. This is where Helme made his reputation. The punt went clear over their safety full-back and was downed within about seven yards of their goal line. In their first play Harris made the quarter fumble the ball and Fletcher fell on the hall. Fow ler was given the ball and he covered the seven yards in one down. The ball was carried out and Lewis kicked goal making the score six to five in favor of Ritzville, with four minutes to play. Neither side scored in the remainder of the game so the final score was six to five. Time of halves twenty minu tes. Lendley, umpire; Heaton, referee; Taylor, linesman. The game was a feature of the Lin coln County Fair and was witnessed by about two thousand people. The next game will be played between Davenport and Ritzville on October 27 at this place. Well Known Young Couple Wed. Miss Margaret Buehler of Ritzville, and Gottlieb Cornelius of Kennewick, were married at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Jacob Buehler, at 6:30, Wednesday evening, Oct. 17, by' the Rev. John C. Miller of this place. The bridal couple were attended by Sam Kern of Ritchfield, and Miss Hulda Buehler, sister of the bride. After the ceremony, the newly married couple received the congratulations of the ir friends. A bounteous wedding dinner was served and the evening spent in a most delightful manner.
