Important Meeting
The meeting of the Improvement
Hub Monday evening should be
largely attended. Ihe election ex
citement has susided, the holiday
season is over, and plans for the
future are in the minds of individ
uals and should concern us as a
community. President Kirby says
one or two important matters will
be brought up for consideration
which should interest us all, and he
is desirous that we have a good
turn out. New officers will also be
elected. Altogether the meeting
should be an interesting and profit
able one. A musical number or
two is promised, and Mr. Washburn
who has the minstrel performance
in hand, will have something inter
esting to say concerning it.
The meeting will be at Grange
hall, and the public is cordially in
vited to be present.
What 1913 Has In Store
December 21 was the shortest day
of the year. From now till June
21 the days will continue to length
en. On March 21 the days and
nights will be of equal length.
This period is called the equinox
and is generally accompanied by se
vere storms.
According to the almanac winter
began December 22 and will contin
ue until March 21.
With the new year just begun
a few facts gleaned from the alman
ac should be of interest.
In the year 1913 there will be
five eclipses, three of the sun and
two of the moon. There will be a
total eclipse of the moon March 22.
It will be visible here, and the total
darkness will last about an hour
and a half beginning at 3 a. m. The
eclipse will also be visible in other
parts of the United States and por
tions of South America, Australia
and Asia.
There will be a partial eclipse of
the sun April 6, but only visible to
the northwestern portion of the
United States, eastern Siberia and
the Arctic ocean.
A partial eclipse of the sun will
occur August 3, but will be visible
only in Greenland and the eastern
portions of maritime Canada.
The total eclipse of the moon
September 15 will be visible here,
however. The total darkening of
the moon will begin at. about 4 a.
m. and last for an hour and a half .
H friend to JVlan
Let me live in my house by the side of the road
Where the race of men go by—
They are good, they are bad, they are weak, they are strong,
Wise, foolish—so am I.
Then why should I sit in the scorner's seat
Or hurl the cynic's ban?—
Let me live in my house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.
—Sam Walter Foss.
Your Presence is Desired at the Improvement Club
Meeting Monday Evening
H Vision of peace
Many at this season are looking into the future —some with
pleasant anticipations and full of hope, while others, especially
in the congested portions of the larger cities, see nothing but suf
fering and despair. How many can see peace on earth as pic
tured by that remarkable man Robt. G. Ingersoll, in the follow
ing beautiful language?
"A vision of the future rises: I see our country filled with hap
py homes, with firesides of content —the foremost land of all
the earth. T see a world where thrones have crumbled and
where kings axe dust. The aristocracy of idleness has perished
from the earth.
"I see a world without a slave. Man at last is free. Nature's
forces have by Science been enslaved. Lightning and light,
wind and wave, frost and flame, and all the secret, subtle powers
of earth and air are the tireless toilers for the human race.
"I see a world at peace, adorned with every form of art, with
music's myriad voices thrilled, while lips are rich with words of
love and truth; a world in which no exile sighs, no prisoner
mourns; a world on which the gibbet's shadow does not fall; a
world where labor reaps its full reward, where work and worth
go hand in hand, where the poor girl trying to win bread with
the needle the needle that has been called 'the asp for the breast
of the poor'—is not driven to the desperate choice of crime or
death, of suicide or shame.
"I see a world without the beggar's outstretched palm, the
raiser's heartless, stony stare, the piteous wail of want, the livid
lips of lies, the cruel eyes of scorn.
"I see a race without disease of flesh or brain—shapely and
fair the married harmony of form and function—and as I look,
life lengthens,joy deepens, love canopies the earth; and overall,
in the great dome, shines the eternal star of human hope."
]Hew 9 and Comment
The largest Christmas business
in years, and in many cases the
largest every experienced in this
state, was enjoyed by the merchants
of Washintgon during the month of
December. Christmas business this
season far surpassed all expecta
tions, and in it the business men of
the state set; the harbinger of the
greatest prosperity the northwest
has ever known.
At a meeting of fruit growers
held in Spokane last week steps
wero taken to form a storage and
warehouse association with head
quarters in that city and a chain of
warehouses throughout the north
west to work in co-operation with

the distributing and selling associa

Washington, Idaho, Oregon and
Montana. A committee is now at
work on the details of the storage v
organization. S: *

will be not only for holding cattle

Recent abuses and alleged unfair
treatment of farmers and growers
by an organization ot - Seattle corn
missionmen has brought out a de
mand for the enactpient of legisla
tion to put an end to such mehtoda
as are believed to have hepled to
make the cost of living greater to
producer and : consumer. What will
be most demanded is a ; complete ac
counting by commisisonmen of ; the .
produce given them for sale, a
statement to whom it has been sold,
so that the farmer can investigate "
for themselves whether the price
which the commissionmen say they
received was actually that. An im- .:
mediate report to the consignor as :
to the condition of the produce is
another feature to be included. :.
