Fain Pakkkr Yakima and the Yakima country adja cent are prosperous beyond expectations this season,” said Attorney Fred Parker to a Tacoma Otobe reporter Wednesday. “The experiment in artesian wells baa demonstrated the feasibility of that mode of irrigation in central Washington. The success of the wells in the lloxee valley, twelve miles north and east of the city, is practically assured. This will reclaim not lees than 30,000 acres, hitherto class* ed as desert land, hut susceptible of the highest degree of cultivation, when a sup ply of water is obtained. The ‘big ditch’ enterprises, contemplating the reclam ation of other large areas, by drawing water from the Yakima and Natches rivers, are also progressing very satisfact orily. This great system of irrigation will stimulate agriculture and horticulture throughout all the region. Already num erous extensive hop growers of the Sound country have made purchases in Yakima county and commenced preparations for establishing yards on a large scale—Exra Meeker being among the heaviest iavsst ors. Practical tests have been made in that climate with the bop pests, demon strating the fact that they cannot survive there, where the vines are exposed to the sun and thefreesweep of the winds. The yield, also, is folly equal to. that of any Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTE!* PURE other portion of the United States, and the product grades high in the foreign market. On the whole, North Yakima has no reason to complain of hard times or a discouraging outlook. Politics? Oh, we don’t talk politics now; we are too busy pushing and pulling for North Yak ima and all the tributary country. There will be time enough to talk politics after the second crop of alfalfa is harvested, neat year.” f«t Swcee levs. Mrs. F. C. Wood, of Weston, Oregon, who spent Sunday with her son at the Hotel Yakima, went to Fort Simooe Mon day to succeed Mrs. Margaret Evans as matron, but finds the work too laborious.

Mias Albert son. a young girl of 18. eloped only last March with a man nearlv three times her age, and this tragedy is the result. *“ Agent Lynch suspended yesterday Rev. Maxwell Phillips, superintendent of the .Wilbur boarding school. There seems to belTUie doubt of the man’s insanity. He is totally deficient mentally and morally.

We once bad occasion to seriously die* cuss certain manifestations in the evolu- tions of the modern man in which it be came apparent that certain deformities were inevitable to the action of civilisa tion. Thus it has been urged that the coming mao will be bald. Distressing as the suggestion of a hairless face may be, science seems to promise such a catas trophe. In our decent from the sportive gorilla we gradually lost the hairy coat familiar in that animal, and it is per haps natural that for certain purposes of ornament we should cherish with some thing akin to affection the locks that corl more or less about our temples. Then it is urged that the coming man will certain ly wear spectates. This is not so intoler able a thought as its companion prophecy, that the race will,in time,be utterly tooth lew. At one time it appeared Impossible to hope that the coming man, and partic ularly the coming woman, would not chew gum. But this manifestation waa, it seems, only a transient phenomenon, and fortunately so, for it is simply tor turing to think of our bald and near sighted descendants trying unnecessarily to munch without teeth. Yet all of thess suggestions are more tolerable by the restless searchers into natural phenomena. The restless search er candidly, and with no trace of cynicism, remarks that the coming man will probably snore. There is something unconsciously cruel in the manner by which the severeet blow is dramatically reserved for the last. It la intensely dis quieting to picture, as we now most, the distresses of a bald, blind and tooth lew, if not chewing-gummed race, living in definitely on in a snoring world. We do not hesitate to aay that the promulgation of this prophecy on the very brink of Thanksgiving is, if not cynical, in the highest degree ill-timed.— Brooklyn Timet. —Thousands of lives are saved annually by the use of Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral. In tbs treatment of croup and whooping cough, the Pectoral has a most marvel- ous effect. It allays inflammation, frees the obstructed air pswages, and controls the desire to cough. —“At last, 1 can eat a good square meal without Ita distressing me I” was the grateful exclamation of one whose appe tite had been restored by the use of Ayer’s Sarsaparilla, after years of dyspeptic mis ery.

This is the opinion of a man who keeps a drug store, sells all medicines, comes in direct contact with the patients and their families, and knows better than anyone else how remedies sell, and what tine merit they have. He hears of all the failures and successes, and can therefore judge : “I know of no medicine for Coughs, Sore Throat, or Hoarseness that had done such ef- fective work in my Coughs. family as Boschee’s Bor, Throat, Hoarseness, at my store, who was suffering from a very severe cold. She could hardly talk, and I told her about German Syrup and that a few doses would give re lief; but she had no confidence in patent medicines. I told her to take a bottle, and if the results were not satisfactory I would make no charge for it. A few days after she called and paid for it. saying that she would never be without it in future as sfcw doses had given her relief.” 9 Simpson Bros.
