ATTEND STATE GAME MEETING County Game Commission ers Believe in Keeping Present Game Laws The entire force of the Stevens County Game commission, compris ing J. C. Wilson of Kettle Falls, Atty. H. T. Wentz of Colville and A. C. Johnson of Chewelah, commis sioners, and L. S. Harbison, game warden, attended the state meeting of game commissioners and wardens at Bellingham last week. The prominence of Stevens county as a game center is recognized throughout the state, and the county game commission has a record of performance equaled by few coun ties in the west. This county's rep resentation was heard on a number of proposals which came before the meeting:, one of them being the plan to raise the hunting and fishing license cost to $3. The convention finally passed a resolution that no important changes be made in the state game laws. Atty. H. T. Wentz was one of the members of the committee on legis lation, and the increased license plan was killed in committee. A deer tag law was recommended, which would make it unlawful for anyone to destroy evidence of sex of deer, or to be found hunting deer without his official tag. It is recommended tliut tho st::te game department receive 15*7! in stead of 10% of the county license fee. Stevens county is raising $10,000 to $12,000 v year on frame licences, .selling dose to 8,000 a year, 2,500 of them in Spokane. Last, year tV.-ve was $12,000 worth of flsh planted in the county, at ;i nininii'TVt valua tion of $4 per 1,000. Thr hatchory is running full capacity, turning out 3,000,000 a year in two hatchings. It i.s the desire of the commission to double thil capacity as soon as funds arc available, an estimated cost bein<r $5,000. The commission owns the land and the water and would need but another building. The coun ty commission also intends to raise more Chinese pheasants each year. Property pays none of the coat of the commission's work, the gamp licences paying the entire cost, and the commissioners serving without pay. COUNTY AGENT TO GET DEGREE Makes Further Study of Soils in State College Absent Course County Agent Henry J. Plumb has enrolled in übsentiu in Washington State college. The purpose of this is "that I may give better service in solving the complicated soil problems of this county," he states. The work undertaken will embrace a study of the geology of the coun ty from an agricultural standpoint, an analytical study of the soil for mations and the installations of plots in various parts of the county for the purpose of studying the effect on the soil of sulphur and phosphate fertilizers, as well as some othen. which may be determin ed upon. Prof. F. J. Slevers, head of the de partment of soils of the Washington State college, will assist in this work and will spend some time in the county throughout the year. Besides giving Mr. Plumb a mas ter's degree in soils, this work will be of value to the agriculture of the county. As a result of a recent action by the board of regents of the Washing ton State college, county agents who have been in the service three years or more are given full faculty stand ing, being designated as extension in structor in agriculture. This action is appreciated by the agents of the college in the field and will result beneficially for the entire service. Names—l see that the barbers arc going to double the prices of shaves. Wife—No! Why are they doing it? Barnes—Well, you see, the increas ed prices on everything have given the public such long faces that it's twice as much work to shave them.

If the common people are beginning to eat their pate de foie grow with a knife or are vulgarly assimilating their stewed beans from a coffee spoon, such matters should be inves tigated. In this rush through life, when a few honest men are attempt- Ing to earn almost as much as they spend, these questions of vital im portance are too often lost sight of. How many there are who can suc cessfully handle a hay fork through an entire Reason, yet at a Newport function will insist on conveying edibles with their fingers! And in the tenement districts there are no doubt those who would even eat pie from the left hand. SCHEDULE OF THE COMING EVENTS Dec. 2ft— Christina*. Jan. I—New Year's day.
