Hoquiam Minister is Elected
Mayor of that City Over
Ferguson's Victory Attrib
uted to Combination of
Church and Labor
HOQUIAM, Aug. 2.—The Rev. Har
ry Ferguson, pastor of the Baptist
church was elected mayor of Hoquiam
Monday by an overwhelming major
ity, defeating Sidney Moor Heath by
a vote of 820 to 573, and William B.
Ogden, treasurer and N. P. Willis,
present street superintendent, won
the election for the office of commis
sioner, defeating John T. Beach and
r. S. Combs.
Tiie election was a landslide for
the three winning candidates. While
many predicted Ferguson's election
early in the day, others were just
as positive that Heath would win and
backed their judgment by placing mon
ey on him.
The victory for Ferguson was the
combination of the labor and church
vote. Labor leaders worked for Fer
guson from the beginning and it was
their vote that won him the nomina
tion at the primaries.
Active work of the Ferguson follow
ers after the primaries gave him the
lead. His friends went into the vari
ous wards and labored for their can
didate. The forces were well organiz
ed and Ferguson himself was busy .all
the time, showing a determination to

The secretary's bulletin, whlcb Is | re

deplores the fact that cheese Is used
by Americans chietly as a matter of

The report says that a pound of

Treasure* of the Beautiful Handicraft

"Indian basketry is a fine art and
gives expression to the ideas, asplrn
tions, religious feelings, poetry and
mythology of the Indian sfjuaw Otiual

ings, pottery, etc., of ou]' o'vu and
many other countries." So runs tin
opening sentence of a manual on tlii>

eryday life, but iu religious, wedding

were woven with wonderful art and
skill. Among the Apache Indians the

'tway by the squaw who made them

when, after the death dance, perform
ed around a huge Are. they were
thrown into the flames.
The Ute Indians, too. used basketry
for mortuary purposes. "The dead
mau or woman was covered with a
large carrying basket, and all around
were laid with loving care the finest
specimens ot the craft" Then there
were dance baskets used tn the dances
that celebrated an abuudant harvest
and woven with designs of grotesque
dancing figures; "mush," or cooking
baskets, so closely woven that liquid
food could be cooked in them; pa
poose baskets for carrying the babies,
and burden baskets, both of which
were carried by the women by means
of leather bands placed round their
foreheads, and innumerable other va
Many of these ure still in use among
the scattered remains of tlie American
Indian tribes, but they are becoming
rarer and rarer, and the real art treas
ures of Indian basketry are hardly
ever seen except In museums, where
collections of them are priced at a
very high value. Studying these thor
oughly. grasping the significance of the
characteristic patterns and ornaments
that have been handed down through
countless generations, Mrs. Williamson
has evolved an adaptation of the coiled
basket work In which they were made,
which provides a delightful and artis
tic occupation for our own times. By
means of excellent Illustrations and
diagrams allied to clear and concise dl-
rections as to the various weaves—the
"simple coil," the "lazy squaw,' the
"Samoan" weave, and so on, she sug
gests to her readers a handicraft that
is full of attractive possibilities.
Her book is compiled for school use,
and the work described is so simple
as to be quite suited to the capabili
ties of young childreu, while it Is eon
tinued by means of carefully and sys
tematlcally graded exercises to work
suited for much older learners, who
may elaborate it to any extent. The
materials are inexpensive, and no tools
are required except the special "squaw
needle," so the occupation commends
itself ut once as home art that fulfills
a most useful mission, educationally
as well as from a decorative and prac
tical point of view.

Miss E 1.11 urn Todd of New York
is probably the first woman In the
world to design and build an aeroplane.
This was a collapsible device, which
she first made known to tbe public In
tbe summer of lUOB. /t that time.
while giving no detailed description of
the machine, she said it called for a
spread of forty-five feet, with a width
of seven feet. The plane was to stand
six feet in height and to weigh several i
hundred pounds less than any other I
aeroplane of the time. The engine was I
to he of special design and of exceed '
ing lightness and strength. j
Miss Todd not only designs her aero
planes, but. being skilled in the use
of tools, is her own model builder.
It is believed that Miss (Catherine
Wright, sister of the Wright brothers,
was the first American woman to make
a flight in an aeroplane. This she did
on Feb. 15, 1909, at I'au, France, wheu
she made an ascent with a brother.
