Moscow (.ill Wins High School Do.
(tarnation Contest.
Miss Gladys Moore, of the Moscow,
Idaho, high school, won the declama
tion contest held at Lewiston last
week between representatives of th,.
schools of Latah and Nez Perce
counties. Her success will be of in
terest to Pullman people because
she is a ncice of Mrs. Anna Clyde,
one of our teachers, and while visit
ing her aunt, was coached by .Mrs.
Collett, head of the department of
elocution at the W. S. C.
Speaking of the contest the Lewis
ton Tribune said in part:
"The big auditorium was crowded
to overflowing last night, the excel
lent program provided and the in
tense interest aroused in the high
school contest appealing to all. The
Moscow high school was represented
by Miss Gladys Moore, daughter of
Attorney and Mrs. F. L. Moore and
her rendition of the comic selection,
"Rebecca's Journey," brought forth
a thunder of applause.
"Miss Vesta Morrison, of Clark
ston, upon whom was bestowed sec
ond honors, was very pleasing In
"Necessity for Intervention in Cuba,"
while Miss Laura Lanninghani, of
Grangeville, the third choice of the
judges, displayed exceptional ability
in "The San and Gazelle."
"All of the selections were most
creditably rendered, reflecting most
favorably upon the schools repre
sented and the teachers who direct
ed the preparation. The decision of
the judges was made with great dif
ficult] the plan adopted being for
each judge to credit each contestant
upon a percentage basis, and at the
conclusion of the program the con
testant receiving the highest number
of credits was declared the winner
of the contest."
Select inn Coeur d'Alene Lands. \,
('has. Vollmer, holder of number
182, and Carl Gerdlng, whose num
ber is 153, left Wednesday for the
Coeur d'Alene Indian reservation to
put in a week looking at the various
claims on the reservation so that
they can make Intelligent selections
when their numbers are called on
May Ith. They will be accompanied
by .John Gerding, who will act as
expert witness on land values, and
as interpeter in Introducing the boys
to their red skin neighbors. '-''
The agricultural lands on the
Coeur d'Alene reservation have been
appraised at from $1.25 to $6.80,
but only 2 3-4 claims are graded as
first (lass agricultural land at the
higher figure. The second class lands
are priced at from $2.', to $5.50,
and much of that that comes within
the classification contains consider
able timber. The timber claims are
appraised as high as $7. SO per acre.
Paul Abendroth, who holds num
ber 75, has made a couple of trips
to the reservation, and has a num
ber of claims under consideration,
one especially upon which he says
he will file if it is still open when
his number is called. It is expected
that the lower numbers will take
the choicest of the timber claims, but
the better agricultural lands are
much sought, as the limber lands,
while very valuable as investment,
will not return a living during the
homestead period.
It is expected that the Pullmanites
who will file will get much better
claims than their numbers indicate,
as only about forty per cent of the
winners in the drawings file when
they are called.
Hoi. Johnson Dead.
Rol. Johnson, of Colfax, died at
the homo of Dr. Maguire, his broth
er-in-law, in this city, yesterday
morning, from complications follow
ing an operation for appendicitis. He
was operated upon at Colfax several
weeks ago for the disease, but did
not gain strength or health as rapid
ly as usual in such cases, and was
recently removed to this city, and
for a time it was believed he was
on the road to recovery. Complica
tions developed suddenly yesterday
morning, however, and death fol
lowed at about ten o'clock.
Mr. Johnson was about 28 years
of age, and was one of the most pop
ular and likable young men of Col
fax, where he was engaged In the
wood and coal business. On July 7th
last, he was married to Miss Mamie
Maguire, sister of Dr. Maguire, and
the widowed bride has universal
By authority of the city council and proclamation of
Mayor Maguire, Saturday, April 30th, is Pullman's official
clean-up day, and every citizen of the city, man, woman and
child, should get busy and carry out the idea of the occasion
with the same spirit they put into the annual observance of
the Fourth of July or Christmas.
The mayor authorizes the Herald to say that teams will
drive about the city during the day, and that all rubbish that
is piled up in the street where it is easy of access will be
carted away free of charge. In case the wagon is not around
when you will need it, notify Jas. Cochran, street commissioner,
and he will see that your warts are attended to.
The civic committee of the Fortnightly Club is taking an
active interest in the proper observance of the official clean
up day, and every resident of the town should second with his
deeds the good work being done by these public spirited ladies
in making a Pullman beautiful.
The city council proposes the enactment of an ordinance
prohibiting the dumping of trash and rubbish in the city park,
some of our citizens having desecrated the larger park by using
it as a dumping ground for some time past. Steps are to be
taken to improve this park, and make it a place of beauty avail
able to the public.
The idea of the public clean-up day is approved by every
one, but its value lies only in a general and complete putting
of the idea into operation. The day's work will make a won
derful improvement in the appearance of the place if the
spirit of the enterprise does not die before the hoe handle
becomes warm.
So get busy Saturday. Do your duty as a citizen, and
show that Pullman's official clean-up day is something more
than a name.
LaFollette Returns From East
Hon. XV. L, La Follette has just
returned from an extended trip
throughout the eastern and south

as well as spending some time with
relatives in Tennesee, Kentucky, and
other states.
Mr. La Folletto states that March
was a month of Ideal weather In the
east, and at the time of his visit the
fruit trees were giving promise of
a bounteous crop, but the April
freeze has practically ruined the or
Hill llillis Shows the Boys How to
XV. A. Hillls, the expert manipu
lator of the rifle and shotgun, who
exploits the arms of the Remington
Arms Co., and the ammunition of
the Union Metallic Cartridge Co.,
was in the city yesterday, and gave
an exhibition of his own skill and
of the quality of the goods he ad
vertises at the college rifle range,
before a large audience of interested
spectators. He was accompanied
here by E. S. Mac Coll, who Is m
charge of the Spokane branch of the
two firms.
Mr. llillis carries with him quite
an arsenal of arms, mostly of the
Remington manufacture, including
an automatic shot gun and an
automatic rifle, that have stocks
chards, and the fruit will be a total
failure in practically all the eastern
and middle states. Not only did (lie
frost kill the fruit buds, but a heavy
fall of snow coming when the trees
were in full leaf, broke down many
trees. Mr. La Follette,, who was
for fourteen years the principal or
chardist of the Inland Empire, says
that this loss of the eastern crop
will assure a market for western
fruit and will add thousands of dol
lars to its value.
En route home Mr. La Follette
stopped off at Great Falls, Monta
na, Where he saw many of the Pull
man colony located there, some be
ing well satisfied with the condi
tion of affairs there,, while others
were disgusted and ready to quit
the game. In the latter class is Joe
Morris, who had drilled down 380
feet in a search for water on his
homestead location but was unable
to find moisture. Morris will sell
the improvements he has made, and
look for a more satisfactory loca
tion elsewhere, although he does
not contemplate an immediate re
turn to Pullman.
Fred Young had not yet bought
property when Mr. La Follette left,
but had a couple of nice tracts in
view, and expected to close up for
one soon.
Marlon Spawn and Walter Bay

business at Great Falls, and are pros

proportion because of the larger area
of open government lands still

Scott Getchell Sells the Fred Young
Farm Near Pullman for $10."»
Per Aero. f
A striking example of the rapid in
crease in farm values and prices
was given this week when Scott
Getchell sold the Fred Young farm,
of 186 acres, located just west of
town, to ('. 11. Barclay, of Thornton,
at $105 per aire. /
Mr. Getchell bought this farm of
Mr. Young the middle of February,
paying $100 per acre at that, time,
o that he cleaned up just $925 pro
fit through holding the property
sixty days. f\
Following the sale of this farm.
Mr. Getchell bought the 320 acres
owned by Mrs. Hattie Myers, about
ten miles southwest, near the
breaks of Snake river, paying $55
per acre. This farm is not so well
Improved as the Young farm, and
is much further from Pullman, hence
the wide difference In value.
