Happenings of a. Week Past—Mud

Personal Mention.
The political movement is on in Tum-l
Water, in view of the local election. Coun
cilmanic honors will be open to those as—
pirants, and if the coming election is to be
judged by the mass-meeting, it will be de
cidedly interesting. The mass-meeting
was held on Monday evening last and was
called to order by George Gelbach. E.
McNeil was chosen chairman, and M.
Chase planetary. Competion was brisk
but on the third ballot, L. Churchill was
nominated, M. Chase on the fifth and Mr.
Whitemarsh on the sixth. "
The meeting was quite harmonious, not
to say hilarious; and perhaps it may be
taken as a striking illustration of what a
truthful representation of the will of the
great American people, the primary caucus
usually is, for there were only about 50
voters present and 65 votes cast. There is ‘
no opposition ticket as yet in the field.
On Thanksgiving day in Turnwater, the
Methodist la ies had a turkey dinner in T.
L. A. hall and the society of King’s
Daughters one in Down’s hall.
Quite a number of our citizens are sick,
most 01 them with a low iever resembling
typhoid. Mrs. Mclntosh is quite sick.
Mrs. Biles improves very slowly and Hey
mer is still quite low, Dr. Mowell, how-'
ever, seems to apprehend no danger if
proper care is used. There have been a
number of these cases this season and the
doctors have had excellent success so far in
treating theni.,
Mr. and Mrs. Deveraux and family, of
Troy, Kansas, are in town, the guests of
Mr. Meyer.
Messrs. Carshner and McComb started
for Chehalis county last Saturday, where
Mr, Carshner owns considerable property.
James Allison was in town Monady. Ev
erybody was glad to see him able to get
around again.
Miss Agnes Broderick has been spending
a few days with her sister, Mrs. Charles Al
lison, at Conernaugh.
Electric lights have been placed at the
principal corners on Reserve street. How
would it do to carry the good work a little
farther and put in two or three street cross
ings? It is almost impossible at times for
peole on the east side to get over to the
post office. One day this week two ladies
attempted to cross from the wagon bridge
to the post office, and midway came to a
standstill, with nothing solid to stand on.
Any one who understands the total de
pravity of rubbers in a trying situation
and the utter hopelessness of trying to
hold one’s dress skirts and an umbrella,
and lish a rubber out of the mud at the
same time, will appreciate the situation.
There were several petrified relics of the
prehistoric ages reclining in graceful atti
tudes against the wall. One of them with
drew his pipe from his month long enough
to say to iis companions: “Stuck in the
mud. Let ’em stay there; they‘re only
new comers, and nobody cares.”
Planchette has arrived in Tnmwnter. It
is the property of a lady who was gifted
with more credulity than wisdom. Up to
. date if the little black demon has any se
crets it declines to disclose them. It is
quite likely that any one wishing to invest
in the future can procure the oracle, cheap
for cash.
There was a good attendance at the Sal
vation Army meeting Sunday afternoon.
Lieutenant Mclntyre was present and
spoke with her usual earnestness and en
shusiasm. Granting all the absurdities
that are charged against the Salvation
Army, let those who are disposed to cavil
and sneer at them, ask themselves if they
are williu to do the work for the reward
that the galvationist receives and grant
them the virtue of sincerity in their pro
i'ession at least. J. E. l).

The time for the closing of the registra

Only about three weeks left before Christmas, and a
good many ladies are rushing around for fancy work materi
als. There is always some dear friend who appreciates a
hand-made article more than anything else. That is why
our Fancy Work Department is crowded daily—it is such a
fine treat to look over our stock of pretty things.
Of course that department is one of our specialties—in
fact, it is the only one in the city. Then you can find a com
plete stock of Embroidery and Knitting Silks, Chenilles,_
‘Aresenes, Wools, Pon Pons, Cord, Tinsels, Stamped and
Unstamped Linens; and in connection with it a full range of
Shades in Fancy Silks, ,Satins and Plushes.
‘ Another department which has a great run is the Cloak
iDepartment. Busy there always. It is astonishing what a
lot of garments we have sold. Still our stock seems as large
ias ever. We are still selling our Long Cloaks at the same
outrageously low prices“! 1310 buys the best coat in the house.
tin that connection we include all garments formerly sold
iabove sls. For $5 one can buy an excellent cloak now,
which is worth more than double this amount. .
Our Overcoat Sale will be continued another week. This
will give all who failed to attend last week, another oppor—
tunity. We must again impress our gentlemen friends, that
every overcoat in stock has been reduced from % to % of its
regular price. ’ I ' -
Your : Own : Price!
I will close out regardless of cost all goods taken
from the warehouse at the time of the fire, consist
ing of common kitchen drop leaf, treasure and ex—
tension tables, kitchen sales, bedroom suits, bed—
steads of all descriptions, desks, garden seats and
chairs and woven wire mattresses. Parties wishing
to get a bargain should not miss this chance, as the
goods must be sold.
