Four Billion Dollars A generation ago, the number one billion was only thought of as a mathematical quantity, the magni tude of which few people attempted to grasp. But in these days of gi gantic expenditures of money, the word has come into more common use. For instance, the people are called upon to chip in four billion dollars this year for the cost of run ning the national government. Counted out in silver dollars, this amount of coin would occupy approx imately one million cubic feet of space. Stacked up in Colville's main business street, it would make a pile one hundred feet wide, ten feet high and one thousand feet lone. Figure it out for yourselves how many of Main street's blocks would be closed to automobile traffic. These four billion silver dollars would weigh approximately 236 million pounds. If a man should attempt to carry them off to his residence, say throe blocks awajT, he could not secure all of them during the dark hours of one night, for by carrying one hun dred pounds each trip and making three trips per hour, working ten hours per day and 300 days per year, it would take him 262 years to get them home. Laid down flat on the ground, edge to edge, in a single line, these silver coins would extend about 95 thousand miles, or nearly four times around the earth at the equator. To count the money, piece by piece, unassisted, would be a greater job than any man could accomplish in a lifetime.

SPORTS FOB THE SPORTS IN AND ABOUND COLVILLE "You have to be in the know this late in the season to have the best * fishermen's luck," declares Tom Aspend. Last Sunday, Mr. Aspend, together with Harry De Groat and Ed Gibson left for a three days visit to the lakes, and brought back the limit allowed by the state game laws. "The Water is cold and high and the fish are large and bite leadily," stated Mr. Aspend, "but the lilies are so large and thick in Pend Oreille one has to know where to troll to have a successful day. There are more fish just now in< Black lake than any of the others because of its not being easily ac cessible. Black lake is full of rain bow and cutthroat, while Twin lakes a mile and a half on, has eastern brook." The best record the Ex aminer has heard of lately was that of Shorty Cummings and Lyman Spaulding, who caught fifty-two trout Tuesday evening in less than, an hour and a half in Deep creek near Aladdin. The fish were rain bow, cutthroat and native brook. James Petty, author of the "Bad Boy and His Dad" can testify to the truthfulness of the story. Pend Oreille river, above Crystal falls is redeeming its reputation of being an unproductive fishing ground. A party composed of George, Robert., and John Walsh, Dick Baird and G. O. Dorman were above Crystal Sun day afternoon from one to five and were kept busy pulling fish off the hooks. The party caught 201 in about three hours. They used as bait, the Royal Coachman. Stevens county has had the reputation for several years of having more and. better game fishing ground than any other county in the state. This is evidenced from the fact that ac cording to population there are more fishing and hunting licenses sold in .Stevens than in any other county. This is due to the fact that the county game commission under thr 1 direction of C. 3. Rhode, the fish com missioner, now propogate and plants about three million fry annually throughout the various streams and lakes in the county. Since February, there has been issued three thousand three hundred and forty- I one fishing and game licenses.
