H. & v excursion to Lake Chatcolet. A goodly percentage of the local con tingent after reaching Chatcolel made the trip up the St. Joe river by steamer, although several remained at the lake and spent the day fish ing. boating and bathing. The Pull man Citizens hand furnished music for the occasion and conducted a dame in the Chatcolet pavilion from noon until 8 o'clock, cleaning up enough money to pay the expenses of the members of the band. Those of the local pleasure seekers who spent the day fishing report perch in profusion, although bass and trout were a minus quantity, The return trip was one of the big events of the da). the excursion ists being given the longest lit not the farthest) ride for the money they had ever had. The train was scheduled to reach Pullman at 10:30 but the weary excursionists could have been seen wending their ways homeward from the station at about 2:30 Monday morning. The train left Chatcolet on scheduled time, but the train crew overlooked the rail road requirement that all trains take on passengers at the regular sta tions, and pulled out of Chatcolel without barking down to the station, the big majority of the excursionists having boarded the train on the sidetrack above the station. At Plummer the crew was handed a telegram which stated thut about 35 of the pleasure seekers who did not desire to spend the entire night away from the home circle were still waiting at the Chatcolet station and were speaking of the railroad com pany in anything but complimentary terms. Over an hour was lost in re turning to pick up the stragglers and. at each station the crew appeared to be attempting to break the record for delay of the previous station finally reaching Pullman four hours behind schedule, just in time to hear the heads of the local chicken coops proclaim the breaking of a new day. Everything taken Into considera tion, however, the day was one well spent, and the excursionists re turned in good spirits despite the tedious six and one-half hours grind over the 0.-W rails. LOVE-WILLIAMS WEDDING Mr. William D. Love of Puyallup, Wash., and Miss Mary Williams, who for years has lived in Pullman, and who taught domestic science in the city high school, were married Thursday, July 30, at Garfield. Wash. Rev. Harley Jackson, pastor of the Christian church, went to Gar field for the ceremony. A number ol Miss Williams' friends from this city also attended. Mr. and Mrs. Love are both graduates of the Washington State College and will make their future home In Puyallup, where Mr. Love is a teacher In the high school. .MANY TRACT! LISTKI) AT COLFAX George S. Canfield of '.Spokane, who represents the Spokane Cham ber of Commerce in the interests of the Northwest Immigration move ment, passed through Pullman Wednesday en route to Colton and Uniontowu. Mr. Canfield stated that the farmers In all parts of the Northwest are taking hold of the campaign with the spirit that does things. In two days' work at Colfax he secured the listing of 12,000 acres of land. The Pullman com mittee, appointed to secure listings, is meeting with such success, and It is probable that at least 10,040 acres will be listed here. WILL WED SOON Mr. and Mrs. George c. Allen this week announced the engagement of their daughter, Marie Savage, and Charles a. Tho-rpson, who will i>c wedded in the near future. Both tin young peoplo are well and favor ably known in Pullman.

K. lUM'll PASSES AWAY Wind was received In Pullman | Wednesday announcing the death at Medical Lake on Tuesda) afternoon of A. B. Balch; the veteran Pullman ischool teacher. Over a year ago Mr. Batch, whose health had been fail ing rapidly, left Pullman to enter the Odd Fellows home at Walla Walla. After remaining there for several months he suffered a mental col lapse and was taken to Medical Lake Tor treatment, dying in the sanitar : ium there. Mr. Batch was well known in Pullman and had many friends her.' who will remember him as ordinarily a congenial and happy fellow, although 'somewhat touchy on some subjects. He was a mem ber of both the Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias organisations, and it is probable that both of these lodges will assist in defraying his funeial expenses.

Many : years later, in the beginning of his | administration as president of the Stato College ho heard the coyotes howling from tho hills about Pull man and tho college, and recalled this story of the wolves that howled on tho campus of old Jefferson. In JSiO, tho older Bryan, an or dained minister, moved with his fam ily to Bloomington, Indiana. tie bought a small 80-acre farm three miles out, and it was on this farm, thu Ban year, thai E. A. Bryan was born. .Mr. Bryan was an ardent anti-slavery man. On one occasion he was mobbed in Cincinnati for de livering an abolition address. This v. us pretty close to the Civil war. The family continued to live at Bloomington, and as they grew up, several of the children entered the university and were graduated. Mr. Bryan's pastoral engagements kept him away from home much of the time. Enoch A. was the eldest sua. and upon tho eldest son fell much of the farm work. At the age of J I years he was hauling wood to town and selling it. He now has ft letter written iv 18C3-—when he was 10 — 10 an uncle in Kansas, in which he mentions a cord of wood he had cut and sold for one dollar. Other happenings of his childhood are quite vividly remembered now, and one is the occasion of his first punishment in school. Ho was then live years old. It was against Lhe rule of the school to whisper^ At the close of the day the roll was called, and tho little hoys who had not whispered or done anything else that was bad could answer "Perfect." It they had whispered, they must answer "imperfect." During the day the five-year-old member of the Bryan family had whispered. He nudged his seatniate, whispering a question and offering information at 1 be same time. "Who did your father vote for.'"* he asked. My father voted for Lincoln." So Enoch had to stay in a half hour after the other little boys had trudged homeward; for, when the evening roll was called, he truth fully answered "Imperfect." At this time there were In South ern Indiana, many southern people. Some were loyal to the Union, and a few were disloyal. On one occa sion the big boys of the neighbor hood erected a great flagstaff, and Enoch's older sister made a big flag. There was a great flag-raising ami accompanying celebration, in which tho Bryan children, large and small, joined. That night the rebels came and tore the flag down. Great was the wrath of the abolitionists. The boys drilled with wooden guns and talked war talk just like their elders, who were talking about the firing on Surapter and Lincoln's Proclamation." In spite of burden of -farm work, Enoch managed to get in most of the alloted time for school. Ho had one teacher whom he remembers especially well, who he now says was the best teacher he ever had. This was Old Frank—a strong, raw boned, hard-headed horse. The summer he was eleven, Enoch culti vated seven acres of corn. The struggle that occurred between boy and horse President Bryan now re counts as one of the greatest ex periences of his lifetime. He plowed the corn, however. Old Frank's oc casional detours after a tempting tuft of grass or an especially juicy corn stalk often drew the plow into the row, but, summed up, the job was fairly well done. After finishing the neighborhood school Enoch attended the schools in Bloomington, walking three miles across-country, morning and even ing. It is worthy of note that along this route were no less than 15 high rail fences, each of which he climbed twice to three times dally during the greater part of the time he studied at the university. At the age of 18 he was appointed by the township trustees away down near Madison, Indiana, teacher of the school at $30vo0 a month, for a period of four and one-half months. This appointment, he now declarer, jgrve him more pleasure than any other he has received in a career of j nearly 35 years as teacher and col | lege president. In 1878, just graduated from the University of Indiana, he became superintendent of schools in Gray ville, Illinois. There he met Miss Hattie Williams, and they were mar ried somewhat later. In the early eighties, he received an Instructor ship in Vincennes University, Indi ana, and a few years later became its I president. This position he occupied for 12 years. In 1893 he accepted the presidency of the State College of Washington. In the 21 years which have elapsed since that time he has attained seniority In the presidency of all state institutions, either agri cultural colleges or universities, In the United States. Note: During several years in this office, stories of the boyhood of our president have from time to time been dropped, some of which may interest alumni who for so many years have known him so well. The first story, however, was not from the President himself.—J. L. A. LOCAL BREVITIES G. W. Reed, who was recently ap pointed postmaster for Pullman, has forwarded his bond to the postal de partment and will take charge of the office as soon as the papers re ceive the O.

Mr. Doty, senior, was seriously Injured in a runaway accident and Ralph volunteered to keep things moving on the farm. W. C. Kruegel came down Wednesday from Twin Lakes, Idaho.

Brooms 25c at the Variety Store, jly 31 QUART WEIGHTS OF GRAIN ; It Is more convenient for a farmer to feed by measure than by weight. Rations usually are given by weight for the sake of accuracy, and be cause there is considerable variation in different feeds. If a farmer knows what a quart of his grain mix ture weighs, he can convert the weight to a measure scale. The fol lowing table gives the approximate weight in jounds of one quart of some common dairy feeds: Cottonseed meal 1.5 Linseed meal, old process 1.7 Linseed meal, new process 1.1 Gluten feed 12 Gluten meal '.1.7 Hominy chop 1.2 Wheat bran, coarse 5 Wheat middlings, coarse 8 Wheat middlings, fine 1.1 Wheat, whole 1.9 Wheat, ground 1.7 Corn, whole 1.7 Cornmeal 1.5 Corn and cob meal 1.3 Oats, whole 1.2 Oats, ground 8 11. O. dairy feed 7 Victor corn feed 7 Brewer's grains 6 Suppose the grain ration calls for two parts of corn meal, one part oats, one part oil meal, and one part of gluten feod. We recently sug gested to a correspondent that he feed one pound of this mixture to every throe or four pounds of milk his cows produced. His roughage ra tion was shredded fodder. If he mixed up 500 pounds at a time, he would have 200 pounds of corn meal, which would be 33 quarts; 100 pounds of old process oil meal, which would be 60 quarts; 100 pounds of ground oats, which would j bo 125 quarts, and 100 pounds of gluten feed, which would be 11 mixture would make a total of 400 quarts. The 500 pounds of grain mixture would make a total of 400 quarts. Therefore, each quart should ' weigh one and a quarter pounds. We said to feed one pound for , each three or four pounds of milk. I I Suppose a cow Is giving 21 pounds of milk dally. Allowing one pound of I grain for every three and a half I pounds of milk, the cow should have six pounds of grain. It would not be very convenient to have to weigh this out each time. As each quart of this particular grain mixture should ' weigh a pound and a quarter, the ' six pounds would be nearly five: quarts, which would be near enough j for practical purposes.
