It is a proven fact that Ninety per cent of children's eyes are imper
fect and at least sixty per cent are being used at a disadvantage, in
other words they ought to be wearing glasses.
Give your child the benefit of our honest thorough eye examination
and you will know instead of guessing at the efficiency of their great
est gift, eyesight.
If they do need glasses we can fit them correctly.

Miss Dorothy Diffenbacher Honored by Vote of Students
at High School Election
Miss Dorothy Diffenbacher will be
the princess at the coming Stevens
County livestock and fair associa
tion's eighth annual fair to be held
here next week. This was decided ;
when the students of the local high ;
school by popular vote elected her j
to be their representative at the I
fair. Miss Diffenbacher will have |
as her attendants Miss LouiHe j
Brown of Chewelah, Miss Lyda Er- !
win of Valley, Miss Pearl Lair of
Marcus and Miss Zita Rowe ol
Northport. Kettle Falls is the only
place that had failed to name a
representative by Thursday night.
It was the intention of the general
fair committee to pick the princes*
and her attendants from the most
popular girls in the county. Later,
when it was decided to crown the
princess on Friday evening, ■ the
general committee decided to have
the princess and her attendants
chosen from the different high
school of the county, the students
to do their selecting.
Princess Dorothy and her five
attendants will be seen for the
first time next Wednesday after
noon, in the opening parade. Ar*
rangements have been made to have

Ore averaging $1100 a ton has
been encountered in a drift from
the tower tunnel in Old Dominion
mine, northeast of Colville.
Up to the present time four aver
age sample.s ranging from $860
to $1400 a ton have been assayed.
One of the assays ran 15% lead,
$1050 silver, and 83 cents gold.
Another assay ran $16.10 lead,
Il2ll.BO'silver- and $4.13 gold, .*
total of $1232.03. The two remain
ing assays ran $850 and $1400. A
crew of men in charge of Al Lynch
has been working on the Old Do
minion mine for the past two years,
cleaning the workings and also cross
cutting in an effort to locate ore
bodies which since the first opening
of the mine have been believed to
exist. The present strike was made
at a considerable depth which en
courages expectations of its presence
in a body of important dimensions.
Present plans for development in
clude the installation of a blower
system to give air for prosecution of
the work at the point of the present
strike. The upper tunnel lies 600
feet above the lower with no con
nection. It will require several
weeks to determine the nature and
extent of the strike, as only a few
men can work in the crosscut at
one time.
The value of the ore uncovered in
the present strike is said to exceed
that of the early strikes. The Kear
ney brothers operated the property .'i6
ago and made a fortune from their
The early history of the Old Do
minion was one of rich silver
strikes in pockets of lime formation.
No veins, however, were ever un
covered. There is a chance that the
lower tunnel ran alongside the vein
instead of cutting it. Miners who

Plans for the pavilion call for a

octagon shape. The money for
financing the building is being raised
by the Colville band' under the di
rection of M. W. Meyer. The ap

be in the neighborhood of $3000.

New City Water System In Use
Operation of the new Colvillo
water system was commenced this
week. New equipment consists of a
li«i,oO0 gallon concrete reservoir on
the hill east of the city and 7200
feet of 10-inch pipe to the lower res
ervoir built several years ago, and
which holds a million gallons.
The new reservoir is 80 feet
square and 10 feet deep, and is
equipped with two settling tanks.
Water is piped into this reservoir
from flowing well.s a half mile
above, and from springs a quarter
of a mile to the southeast. The

time in addition to mining experts
who have visited the mine agref
that there should be a vein travers

Whether this vein has been located
remains to be seen.
The Old Dominion which is largely
a Colville company was formed some
time ago, a large percentage of the
stock being held by Colville business
men. It is capitalized for 10,00"
shares at $10 a share. No share

The officers of the company are W.

during the coming fall season.
"By the time the pavilion is com

"The building when completed will
be larger than the Natatorium I'ark

To Hold Free County
Tuberculosis Clinic
A fre<- county tuberculosis clinic
will be held in Oolville noxt Wed
nesday afternoon and Thursday mor
ning, September 28 and 29, in charge
of Dr. Frederick Slyfield of .Seattle
of the medical staff of the Wash
ington Tuberculosis Association. The
clinic will bo under the auspices of
the Stevens County Antituberculosis
League. I'lans aye beinj* made for
the cooperation of all the physicians
of the county. The educational fea
tures of the clinic will be a part of
the Stevens County Livestock Asso
ciation fair, which is helrl Sept.
28-Oct. 1.
The clinic is open to every resident
of Stevens county. Doctor Slyfield
is willing to give his entire time
while here to the examination of
cases in question. The study of
tuberculosis has become so great a
field for .specialism that some phy
sicians are giving their entire time
to the work, and it has been found
that many apparently sound persons
of those examined at these clinics
are detected in the first stage of
tuberculosis, while many who believe
they are infected are found to be
suffering with other troubles and
with no trace <>t tuberculosis. Hence
the wish to educate the public as to
the preliminary evidences of this
great plague which is responsible for
one fourth of all illness and one
tenth of all deaths in the United

I'hysician.s throughout the country

state tuberculosis association In
handling the clinics, realizing the
educational value resulting, and
