As proof that the merchandise busi ness of J. V. Baker & Son is growing, the work of building an addition onto the rear of their store building was begun this week. Walter Robbins has the contract for doing the exca vating work. Geo. L. Sawyer of Spokane, of the firm of Sawyer Bros., contractors, was in town yesterday. This firm is in stalling a sewerage system in the town of Nezperce and is figuring with our city dads for a contract for putting in a sewerage system at Cottonwood. Pete Gaul and Frank Kelsey made a quick business trip to Keuterville Tuesday. On Wednesday Mr. Gaul made a real "flying" trip to Ilo in his Ford. It surely must have felt like flying, for he made the return trip at night—21 miles—in about an hour. Joe Syler's fine big team, while standing unhitched in front of the Cottonwood Hardware Co. Saturday, suddenly concluded to entertain our people by "running OS'" through the business streets of the town. Luckily they were caught before any damage was done to team or wagon. Frank Schober has returned from a couple of weeks' siege ou the "firing line" in the Elk City country—where he was one of a large gang that had been fighting forest fires. Frank says that is the best hunting and fishing country he ever saw or heard of. Which proves that the Jjoys did not put in every minute fighting fire. Chris Sehaecher shipped his house hold effects Tuesday to their new farm home at Ryegate, Mont., where his wife and several of the children went some time ago. The father and bal ance of the children expect to leave tomorrow morning. Their many friends here, while regretting their de parture, wish them all kinds of success iu their new home. I. E. 'Zuver of Grangeville and Harry C. Cranke of" Nezperce—both of them the leading auctioneers of the state—were visible to the naked eye on our streets Tuesday. What makes j these gentlemen so popular in their chosen line of work is that they have "a way about them" of squeezing just ! a little more out of the bidders than ! the average auctioneer is able to do. Slim Reid, the barber, has returned from a few days' visit at the home of! his sister, Mrs. Fred Moberg, at Aso tin. Alfred Moberg, who underwent ! an operation some time ago, is rapidly 1 recovering from his long spell of sick- i ness.

Lance sent his regards to his old friends in Cottonwood. ! | j ! ! ! 1 i * i How About Y our Foot wear?
