NO SIDE DRAFT The Hates Steel Mule is built low, with a low center of gravity. And still it has nearly 14 inches' ground clearance. The draft comes squarely in the center—cannot come from the side. So on hillsides there's no tendency to work down like in ordinary tractors. Unit construction. Timken bearings, valve-in-heati kerosene motor and long-life crawlers are a few of the other valuable features. The STEEL MULE plants are working night and day filling orders.

Pond, the sixteen-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert G. Pond, died of pneumonia following in fluenza at midnight Monday. He died at the family home near the Na poleon mine. Mr. and Mrs. Pond and family formerly lived in Colville, but have lived the past few years near Napoleon where they own a sawmill. Services were held at the grave in Highland cemetery Wednes day morning, Reverend George Kline officiating. Francis Pond is sur vived by his parents, two brothers and a sister. The death of this promising young man has cast a shadow on his community, where he was well and favorably known. GIVE IP NON-COM RANK TO GET TO FRONT LINE Two Stevens county boys in their anxiety to get to the front lines be fore the^war is over, have gone back to the rank of private. They are Robert Peddycord, son of G. W. Ped dycord, and Herman Joscphsky of Kettle Falls. The former wrote his parents that he gave up his corp oral rank to be a buck private and was very happy about it. "The only way up to a month ago," he wrote from france, "that a non- commissioned officer could get out of the S. 0. S. was to take a court mar tial, but there has been a change now and they can resign to go to the front, so I immediately put mine in." A trip across France to the border of Alsace, just before his resignation was accepted, gave young Peddycord a trip through some beautiful coun try. He went as corporal with a party of soldiers and said that the Vosges mountain district was one of the most beautiful parts of the coun try they had been in. They drove through the woods and came to open ings where they could see down the mountain slopes of miles of smooth green grass just like lawn, dotted with cattle. Remiremont was their first stop, and from there they boarded an ex press for Nancy. There were no lights on the train and it thundered along through the dark, accompanied on one side by flashes of light, the origin of which Bob said he did not know. He kept still until he heard someone in the dark say "canons," and then replied in a bored sort of way, "Oh, yes." At Nancy they found a big crowd waiting in the dark to board the train for Gay Paree. The boys at the front hate to see their letters quoted in the papers, but Bob's description of his ride from Nancy to Paris is too good to keep. "We also took the train after fight ing for a place. I finally landed in the aisle of a first class coach, where it is not right that a soldier should be, but I stayed there, standing, sit ting or trying to sleep on the floor. Well, when I finally looked around, there I was in the aisle with about eight Canadians, two French majors, and an English captain. After go ing around France for x awhile, one gets so he can sleep in any place or position, so I got a little sleep on the floor until four a. m., when some one stepped in my face as they were go ing out, and 1 secured a seat for the rest of the night. When morning came I found I had my head pillowed on a colonel's shoulder and my feet spoiling the shine on a captain's leg gings, but nothing was .said either way. One thing is a cinoh, and that is that when the soldiers come back to America, they will scandalize the ladies for awhile, until they get used to the idea that the women can under stand what they say." When they had visited Paris and returned to Chissay from their trip, they had made a complete circle of about 1500 miles which took seven days. .Uncle Silas (visiting city relatives who use electrical appliances for cooking at the table)— Well I swan!

"I missed the trophy train and two or three other things because I did not have the paper. I take the Spokane paper, but of. course that doesn't tell when things are coming to Colville. It's the Colville Examiner that tells all about the war drives and what our quotas arc and when a speaker is coming to town and so on."
