Thanksgiving We send you our best wishes that the day may be all you can desire bright and happy. About the only business to be transacted will be with the turkey in the dining room; so if nothing else occurs to you, be thankful you are not the turkey. Siil THE DAVIS-KASER CO. r^F Ewytbißg to Furnish tie How. [_ 1 Mr. Bogle was born in Jamaica Sep tember 7, 1835. At the age of 12 years he emigrated to New York, where he remained for one year, then removed to Michigan, where he resided a short time and then came west landing in Oregon October 15, 1851. Three years late,- he removed to Yreka, Cal.. where he learned the barber trade, which he followed for three years in that town. H then went to DeadVvood, Cal.. and engaged In the restaurant and barber business for a number of years and then took up mining as an occu pation. Returning again to Roseburg. Or., he followed his trade until 1862 when he came to the Walla Walla valley. After, visiting the mining camps in Florence, Elk City and Ori Fino in Idaho, he came back to Walla Walla and opened a barber shop, which he conducted continuously until about three years ago when his health began to fail, when he turned over the business to his sons. January, 1563, Mr. Bogle married in Salem, Miss A. Waldo, and to them were bom eight children, live of whom are living and were with Mr. Bogle in his last hours. They are Arthur Bogle, Warren Bogle and Waldo Bogle of this city: Mrs. C. M. Duffy of St. Paul. Minn., and Mrs. J. M. Blueford, of San Francisco. Mrs. Bogle died about a year ago. ADVERTISING CHIT-CHAT. Tf>e advertisement that pays is the ad that is timely. Don't advertise lawn mowers in December. All that a salesman in a store can do is to talk his goods and try to sell them. Selling pointers can also be put into a newspaper advertisement. And the newspaper announcement dis counts the salesman when it comes to reaching the public. While Mr. Sales man at the most can meet only a few people the ad reaches and falls into the hands of hundreds. No retailer with a proposition that appeals to the general public should let the above fact escape him. Some business men never advertise. They seem to think it best not to be too frank in introducing their wares to the people. Rather favor mystery to openness in selling their goods. Well, a Mr. Parker ran for president and his sphinx candidature was not a howling success. If you have a fair and square proposition for the public it can stand all the publicity you can giye it. 'Tis a case of the more you hide it the more you lose. Thanksgiving turkey will be served at Olson's from 12 m. till 7 p. m. Din ner proper will be served at the usual hour, 3:36 till 7 p. m. Usual prices. W. T. Young—oakery and grocery— 211 West Main street. LOOK OUT FOR 816 CHECK. Drawn on a Bellingham Bank —Names May Change. Look out for bad checks on Belling ham banks. That some artist, doing his work un der the name of "B. C. Thompson," has been busy is evidenced by the following from a recent issue of a Bellingham paper: "Another bad check was reecived by a local bank from Spokane yesterday. It is believed to be the work of the same person who passed the Maulsby checks recently. "This check was for the sum of $22.50 and was drawn on an imaginary account with the bank. It was made out to C. A. Speilman, on one of the bank's counter checks, and signed by B. C. Thompson. It was cashed by a business house in Spokane and came to the bank in the regular way for collection. B. C. Thompson is not known at the bank, and no such account ever existed. "The handwriting is pronounced by the bank officials to be the same as that on the two Maulsby checks, and if the forger is still in Spokane he will probably be apprehended in his career, as the Spokane banks were wired when the first bad check turned up here for collection." .THE EVENING STATESMAN WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1904. 816 GAME FOR TOMORROW FARMERS AND MISSIONARIES WILL BATTLE ON WHITMAN FIELD THANKSGIVING. 1 Pullman Team Arrived This Afternoon Accompanied by a Band of En thusiastic Rooters.

Adrian Broxson Tells the Conditions in Canada. A letter has been received in Walla Walla from Adrian Broxson, formerly living in Walla Walla, but who is now residing at Sulphur, in the Northwest territory. Mr. Broxson is manager of the Pacific Meat company. In describ ing the conditions in that section Mr. Broxson says that the country is fast building up and new settlers are com ing in by the hundreds. The weather there is very cold and the thermom eters have registered below zero for many months. All the streams in that section are frozen during the entire winter and the problem of securing water for stock is a serious problem. It is nec sary to cut the ice in the creeks and livers and haul to the ice houses where it is stored. One man has fitted up a large furnace and in large boilers he melts the ice and distributes the water to* the people. It costs the sum of $25 during the winter months to secure sufficient water to supply one horse. Fuel is another big item in that country. Wood cut into stove lengths is retailed for $18 per cord. Notwithstanding the conditions Mr. Broxson says he is well satisfied with the country and expects to remain there. ALL MUST WEAR THE CHAINS. County Prisoners Will Have to Put on the Irons.
