BEST NEWSPAPER BARGAIN: DAILY AND SUNDAY PRESS, 10 CENTS WEEK—'THE PAPER THAT DARES PRINT THE NEWS'
THE "REFRAIN" OUGHT TO BE POPULAR. "I dent think that new musical hit has a popular refrain." M l think it has. It refrains from anything that sounds like the old •emlc opera tunes." IRE CAR LINES FOR LIDGERWOOD NEW LINES BEING BUILT BY W. W. P.—MORE WATER ANO BTREET LIGHTS. The old familiar name of "Lidger wood line" will disappear from the city car service of the Washington Water Power Co. when the new lines now being built in Lidgerwood are completed. These lines, to be known as the Division street am: Addison street lines, will take the place of the Lidgerwood line. Botl lines will run from the center o the city north on Division to Lll , erty avenue, at which point the Ad dison street line will turn to the east as far as Addison street and run thence north to Rowan avenue. The Division line will continue straight north to Rowan. The completion of these lines will give Division street three car lines to Boone avenue, two car lines to Liberty avenue and one line almost to the north city limits. Where a very poor schedule of car service hae existed in the past in compar ison with the importance of Divis ion street, a much improved service ■will be given in the future. The grading on the Addison street line is completed and a single rail has been laid to Prince ton avenue, to which point a double track will run. When a single track Is completed on Addison work will begin on Division, and as soon as the single track is laid there car service will begin on both lines and be discontinued on the old Lidgerwood line, the good rails of which will be used in laying the double track on one of the other lines. With the completion of the new Lidgerwood lines but a small por tion of the old Glass line is left. It was known as the City Rapid Tran sit Co. This was the original line to Lidgerwood, that made the cir cuit of the loop and entered the city over Sprague avenue. Its franchise has 10 years more to run. It was sold to the Washington Water Power Co. some eight or 10 years ago. and now but a small portion of the narrow rail used on the Glass line remains. All the new lines are being laid with heavier steel. The completion of the Addison and Division lines will give Lidger wood three car lines from Howard and Riverside to Rowan avenue, one-half mile from the north city limits. These are the Division, the Addison and the Astor lines, each thr«e long blocks apart. With im provement in the water service in sight (tirough the building of the str.ndp'pe and the laying of more mains, and the placing of many ad ditional street lights, that section of the city has taken on quite a boom. WHAT THE WEATHER MAN SAYS TODAY The western storm center has ad vanced from British Columbia to near Lake Winnipeg, and has caused rain in northern Oregon and Washington that was heavy on the coast. Rain was reported in Xew England, caused by the eastern storm center, which has moved out on the ocean from the coast of Mas sachusetts. Rain was also reported in Arkansas. Elsewhere in the United States fair weather reports have prevailed, due to a prevalence of normal to moderately high pres sure.

ASHES PLUS CANS away two loads, that might barely; have amounted to 600 pounds each, 1 Rehberg began to grow anxious and asked the man at the wagon how the charges for the work already done stood. "Four dollars." he was told. "Gravel, $2 per load: two loads, $4." •'Gravel, eh?" mattered Rehberg. "Well, then say. I'll just let you go now—four more loads there, you I say? Two loads $4, six loads |12! Say, I'll just haul my own 'gravel.', What is the charge for hauling ashes and tin cans?" "Oh, tin cane, not much of any thing, and ashes f1.50 a load," the man In the wagon responded, with a knowing wink. "Ashes only $1.50; so you classed this as gravel in order to charge %2 a load for it, eh?" Rehberg con tinued. "Yep," assented the man from the city's "sure thing" department. "Well, what are you going to do with that dead hen over there?" Rehberg asked. "Nothing, till somebody comes through with 'four bits' for carting it away," the fellow answered. a"nd with that he drove off smiling com placently. Now Rehberg declares he is 20 --ing to hire a team and haul away his own rubbish. He is confident of his ability to save some money even at that, as the city does allow common citizens to haul "gravel" tnrongh the streets. Hut rubbish never! And should the city's health or crematory sleuths catch a common citizen depositing rub bish on some vacant lot within the city limits it would be "all day" with that unfortunate creature right off. It would be the calla boose for him and a fine in court would be the next step he would take toward getting wise to the city's huge crematory bonanza. Nevertheless, Rehberg declares, the two loads of stuff removed from his back yard was hauled to a vacant lot a block up the street and dumped, though for sanitary reasons, it should have been burn ed at the crematory. At any rate. Rehberg says, the man from the crematory loaded up what he did haul away with a fork and a good size>d scoop shovel. Might as well try to eat soup with a fork as to use that imple ment in loading real gravel, and no man with a snap is going to use a big scoop shovel in loading the real thing, either. He will take a child's size shovel. Rehberg went to the office of the crematory department in the city hall, but there he was laughed at for his remonstrance at the $4 charges, and was told, "Why, you ought to be tickled to death, for you got off lucky." Rev. Father H. J. Goller left this morning on a tour of inspection of the principal cities of the Inland Empire and Idaho. He will spend about two months in the work be fore re turning to California. 25 Per Cent Lower Than the Retail Stores. HENDRY'S Sample Cloak and Suit House 601-604 Sixth Floor Jamieson Bldg.

Hinds, clerk at Speaker Cannon's desk, and king pin of parliamentarians, is chosen as Cannon's successor, the house of representatives will follow more closely the Knglish house of com mons idea of what a speaker should be. Over there the speaker is a presiding ofiicer pure and simple. He is not supposed to tell the members what they should or should not do. It Is not generally known that the speaker need not necessarily be a member of the house, but that is the fact. If a majority of the members want to make a speaker out of Hinds, a mere clerk sta tioned at Cannon's elbow to solve for the speaker the knotty points of precedents, they can do so. Hinds has been the right hand man for every speaker since Tom Reed's first term. It was Reed who brought him down to Washington and placed him at the little desk Just below the speaker's chair. He has been uniformly fair to both parties, and to insurgents and Cannonites alike. Congress pub lished eight volumes of his prece dents last year, a work which has established for the speaker's clerk a greater reputation as a parlia mentarian than any partisan speaker has ever enjoyed.
