NAME OF PAPER CHANGED
The name of this paper has been
changed from Camas Prairie to Cot
tonwood Chronicle, which name it will
be known by hereafter. We believe
tliat 99 percent of our readers will fa
vor this change, as it is shorter, easier
to say and besides, the principal rea
son is that it proves a better adver
tisement for the town and community.
Unless a paper takes the name of the
town in which it is published, nearly
everybody—except those well ac
quainted—must inquire where the pa
per is published. Very few papers
can be found any more that do not
carry the name of the town in their
head, and in fact the citizens of a town
and patrons generally insist upon this
Another proof of Cottonwood's pros
perity is tliat it is next to impossible
to find a vacant bouse for rent—es
pecially during the fall and winter
months, when many farmers move to
town for our excellent school advan
tages. Wherever you fiud a town
with plenty of vacant buildings you
are sure to find a poor business town
that has'been the victim of fake boom
ers a<W mushroom growth. However,
at least 50 more dwelling houses could
be rented here readily at a rent that
would pay better than ten percent in
terest, and the wonder is that some of
our capitalists do not put up a num
ber of houses for rent. Lack of hous
es here for rent forces many people to
move to other towns during the school
Every business house in any town
should be represented in the adver
tising columns of the local paper—not
alone for the benefit derived from ad
vertising—and that the publisher
needs the money—but for the benefit
of the town and community in general.
A country towu is always judged from
the appearance of its newspaper. If
the paper is well patronized and looks
prosperous, homeseekers and investors
know that the town is a good place in
which to iiyest and locate. If the
paper has a starved appearance they
know the towu is no good, and pass it
up and go to a more enterprising place.
An exchange suggests that since
pur laws or nothing else in the United
States suit the I. W. W's they should
all be taken out into the ocean and an
island found for them to govern to
suit themselves. Wrong again.
They should be taken out and dumped
into the middle of some ocean and let
them hunt their own island. It's a
sure thing they would not be satisfied
with an island that anybody else
would select for them.

and best town in the United States

Camas Prairie is noted for its big
yields of fine potatoes as well as ev
erything else that grows in the ground
or on top of it. In all of our stores
may be seen samples of spuds brought
in by the farmers that would be sure
prize-winners at any county or state
fair. Some of them would fill a gun
ny-sack—that is, enough of them
would fill a sack.
Have you noticed the fact that
there has not been an explosion of a
threshing machine in Latah county
thus far this season? Some attribute
this to the lack of smut in the grain.
Others, and they are in a large ma
jority, attribute it to the lack of I.
W. \\"s. in the harvest fields.—Nez
Something is radically wrong with
the mail service when it takes a letter
two or three days to go or come from
here to Spokane or Portland. There
is no reason why a letter leaving here
in the morning should not reach Spo
kane the same day and Portland the

earth's land surface and has a popu
lation of 182,000,000 people, repre
senting 64 racial and tribal divisions
and speaking more thau 150 tongues.
No wonder that it is impossible to
find telephone wires in that country
strong enough to stand the strain.
