Cum mings is visiting schools along the Columbia river this week. He left Monday for an all-week trip. A Miles correspondent in the Hun ters Messenger states that owing to the fact that trucks are not travel ing the roads from Davenport to Hunters, the mails between the two towns have become unusually heavy as lots of goods and produce that were previously freighted are now be ing sent by parcel post. Marriage licenses were issued this week to Ray H. Smith and Miss Ag nes Shrader, both of Rice, and Claude L. Moore and Mrs. Edna Ritchey of Bossburg.

Carl isle in the Bonnievale community a visit Sunday. Spraying all along the Columbia, taking in the Bonnie vale and Riverivew additions, is well under way, as late as spring has been in coming. Mr. Carlisle says that if weather and other conditions keep up as good as they have been, it will take an army of men to thin the apple crop in that section. The thinning makes a better quality of apple, gives moi-e weight of apples to the tree. It is his belief that the best apple crop for years will be harvested there this year. The peach trees have all been sprayed and pros pects for a bumper <;rop of that va riety looks very flattering. Attorney Thomas I. Oakshott re turned from Spokane Tuesday where he had been conferring with J. A. McMillan, receiver of the Spokane Fruit Growers company, relative to claims of creditors whom Mr. Oak shott was representing. Mr. McMil lan stated that the assets of the company were being liquidated as rapidly as possible but that it would not be possible to make the first payment to the creditors until some time after June G. He also stated that the creditors would be paid ap proximately 88 cents on the dollar after deducting the cost.-! of receiv ership. The marketing problem of the growers who were formerly members of the Spokane Fruit Grow ers company is now serious. The Spokane Fruit growers company was a member of the Skookum Packers association and this association mar keted its fruit through the North western Fruit Exchange. The fail ure of the Spokane Fruit Growers company leaves its members without organization. Internal trouble in tlie Northwestern Fruit exchange has also resulted in the resignation of some of its officers. These officers have formed another cooperative or ganization in Wenatchee and are competing with the Northwestern Fruit exchange for the tonnage of Washington. The success of both of these organizations in dependent upon their tonnage, and the scarcity of tonnage was the principal cause of the failure of the Spokane Fruit Growers company. The Hunters Messenger says that a number of new postoffice boxes have been added to the postoffice of that place to take care of the rapidly in creasing population of that town.

"We have effectually stopped one source of the bootleg supply in the state of Washington," was U. S. District Attorney Thomas Revelle's personal report to Commissioner Haynes. "In cooperation with the government officials of British Co lumbia we ascertained that American whiskey is not used in that country for mechanical or medicinal purposes, and upon such information Director Roy C. Lyle has declined approval of liquor exportations into British Co lumbia, shipped by American distil leries. In one instance the ship ment of three carloads of a Kentucky distillery was stopped. "The main purpose of such shipments was for illegal diversion, that is, smuggling back into this country. In closing the source of supply we had most helpful cooperation on the part of British Columbia officials, and with their cooperation are making much progress in curtailing smuggling of Canadian liquor."

Washington p PROSECUTING ATTORNEY LANDS A CHECK ARTIST Charles Onthank of St. Joe, Idaho, was arrested Tuesday at Springdale on a charge of grand larceny, and was brought to Colville by Deputy Sheriff C. A. Ledgerwood. An in formation was filed by Prosecuting Attorney O. W. Noble charging On thank with giving a check to H. S. Spedden and W. H. King of the Che welah Auto Co. for 5210 for a Ford car, with intent to defraud and de prive the owners of the same. The check was drawn on the State Bank of Plummer, Idaho, dated April 28, but the bank stated that Onthank had no account or credit at the bank. Investigation developed the fact that Onthank had been guilty of similar offenses at Plummer, St. Joe, Coeur d'Alene, North Fork, Spokane and Springdale, having issued checks to taling $510. One check was cashed at the Farmers and Merchants bank at Springdale for $60. Onthank claimed that about four months ago he gave his father $300 to place in the bank at Plummer, but this story he did not substantiate. He was given a hearing Thursday before Judge D. H. Carey of the superior court, and was sentenced to 1 to 15 years at the state reformatory at Monroe. He is 19 years of age. Sheriff Prentice Wolfe of St. Maries arrived in Colville Wednesday to take Onthank back to Idaho, but found he would have to wait until the Wash ington sentence is finished. He stat ed than Onthank will be prosecuted in Idaho as soon as he is released from the Washington reformatory. The Idaho charges include several cast's of forgery. STATE SEED INSPECTOR TELLS OF POTATO STOCK State Seed Inspecor J. E. Curry of the state department of agricul ture of Olympia, recently paid Ste vens county the honor of a visit and inspected the seed potatoes of a number of growers in and around Colville. Mr. Curry's statement rel ative to the quality of these potatoes follows. Special mention was made by Mr. Curry of the potatoes grown by A. E. Skidmore of Colville. He said: "We have been around and inspect ed a few lots of Netted Gem pota toes that are to be used for plant ing stock for certification this com ing season, and these lots compare very favorably—that is, in a bin in spection way, to anything else in the state. There should not be any trouble at all for growers here to put out a first-class potato in every respect. We would like to urge all growers who expect to make seed potato production a business serious ly to consider the certification end of it, because that is the thing that is going to indicate to the buyer in the irrigated sections just what the quality of the stock is. It is a pro tection to the buyer down there and there is no doubt but what in the future there is going to be a more decided call for certified stock in com parison with just ordinary seed po tatoes. All growers who are con sidering certification should get their application in by June 1." Examiner Want Ads Bring Results. Dr. S, Ernest Pearsall Licensed Chiropractor Phone 1025, 207 N.
