We Have a Hot Time all the Round Over Here. Says the Kootenai County Republican: Monday morning, when the people of Rathdrum, good, bad, and indifferent, arose from their beds and turned their gase upon Mother Barth, they were greatly surprised to find about three inches of "beautiful" snow had gently fallen during the night and completely hidden the green sod beneath. Now a snow atorm in the month of December generally has a soothing influence upon the inhabitants of a northern clime, but a snow storm in the month of June has a decided tendency to depress rather than exhilarate the spirits of the average Idahoan. Not that our people are chronic kicken, by any means, and wish to take issue with providence in the method of regulating the seasons, and somewhat unexpected, and like all the rest of humanity, the people hereabouts much rather prefer to be given some warning of any revolution about to take place whether in the social, political or material world. ; One of the most distressing features of this strange phenomenon was the etnbar rasing position in which it placed old residente» when they were called upon to "explain" by the recent arrivals from the cast. One of the greatest induce ments held out to them to come west was the glowing accounts they bad re ceived by letter and through the press of our lovely climate. We all know we have been guilty of impressing upon the easterner the summers out here were so delightful, the zephyr breezes were so soft and balmy, the climate so mild and equitable that it was a well known and established fact from May until Decem ber every family was a self constituted and reliable weather bureau, wherein the youngest member was considered infal lible in his or her prognostications as the oldest member thereof. It would not suffice for the old timer to assure his friend from the east that Mother Nature had slipped a cog, or had turned practi cal joker at the expense of one and all. But right here one word of defense. We shall not attempt to offer any expla nation as to why the elements above con spired the inflict upon this section a dis agreeable surp:ise in the nature of a June snow storm, but to the recent arrival we do say—suspend judgment until the sum mer months have come and gone, and if at the end of the year 1901, when the crops had been harvested, when the fruits have been plucked and in the cellar stored, when in brief, the present pros pects tor the * year's outlook have all ripened into realities and you have re ceived your just proportion of the reward, it then, we say, you do not conscien tiously feel that you are satisfied with Idaho as compared with your former place of abode, there will be other things in northern Idaho besides June snow storms that may reasonably be considered phenomenons. -smi x eROWty CHASE & SANBORN, Importers, Boston. Exclusive Sale at Russell's Cash Grocery. Large Wool Salat. Thurday's wool sales at Mouutainhome were very successful, over 700,000pounds being disposed of, the price averaging io'4 cents per pound. Some of the wool sold as low as 7 cents, while more went up to 10^ and some even brought njg. The finest clip belonged to L. L. Orms by, bringing the highest price. All the wool offered was first class, with one exception, this being a small clip that sold for 7 cents. These sales were inaugurated by the Idaho Wool Glowers' association, and within 24 hours fully 1,200,000 pounds were disposed of, with all the buyers and most of the dealers on the ground at one time. The Caldwell sale on Wednesday did not begin till öfter 12 o'clock, while the sale at Mouutainhome yesterday was closed at that hour. In these sales it is estimated that the association saved its members fully $10,000. One of the largest buyers on both occa sions was Joe Streng, the heavyweight from Ogden. His total purchases will fill 35 cars and amounts to over 7c 0,000 pounds. The best of feeling prevailed between producer and buyer, and it is thought probable in the future that all large sales will be publicly, as it is more convenient and gives better results. More Arteiian Water. Gus Scharfhausen struck another flow of artesian water on his Little Willow creek ranch last Saturday, which makes him the justly proud possessor of four good flowing wells. The new well has a depth of 366 feet and has a flow of over 100 gallons per minute through a four inch pipe. It is the best well so far struck in that section. An unpleasant feature is developed in connection with this well, which at the time of our information has not been ac counted for. Between an eighth and a quarter of a mile from the Scharfhau9en well is located the big well of Mrs. Wackerhagen which is 787 feet deep and flowed about 100 gallons per minute. In 12 hours after striking the flow in the Scharfhausen well that from the other well was observed to be diminishing and continued doing so until it discharged less than half its foraier volume. Owing to the great difference in the depth of the two wells and their close proximity, this circumstance is hard to account for. The Scharfhausen well has been plugged to see whether that will result in restoring the iormer volume of the Wickerhagen well, but up to this writing'the result of the experiment has not been reported Payette Independent. Shearing by Machinery. If anyone imagines that this is not an age of ihvenlion and progression they should visit the Van Sicklin shearing pen, where N. H. Cottrell has his large sheep shearing machine in operation and is removing the winter coat from sheep at the rate of 5% per minute. The first impression one receives on seeing the machine is that a wholesale dentistry has turned itself loose on a band of sheep. Bach pair of shea» is connected witt) a line shaft and operated on the same prin ciple as the dentists lathe which operates the drill. Attached to each tube is a pair of clippers which work on the same prin ciple as the barbers' clippers, bnt are stronger built and have longer teeth. Two line shafts operated by a 12-horse power gasoline eugine, and attached to each of these shafts are ten machines which may be thrown in or out of gear at the option of the operator. A separate machine is built opposite each machine and is kept filled with sheep. The oper ator has only to reach behind him, grab a sheep by the hind leg and pull him in, where the coat which nature furnished him as a winter protection is quickly re moved and be is again turned out with uo protection except the tariff. The proprietor,'Mr. Cottrell, informed us that he was shearing an average of 1500 a day, but that with good weather and all experienced men, he could easily turn out 2000 a day. This does not exceed in numbers the amount of work done by 20 hand shearers, but there is au average saving of wool of one and one half pounds per head. At 8 cents per pound this saving will pay for the shear ing. Mr. Van Sicklin had one sheep sheared by hand in the ordinary manner and then re-sheared by the machine. The result was a saving of two pounds and five ounces of wool. Mr. Cottrell has contr icted to shear 40,000 head this spring at 13 cents per head. The wool is sacked by him, the owner furnishing the sacks. Of the 40, 000 contracted, at least one third belong to Van Sicklin.—Cambridge Citizen. Paragraphs With Points. Raseball is becoming such a polite game that it is uo longer safe for a player to call an umpire a "lobster." Now that the complete returns are at band, it appears that that they had a childless mothers' congress out at Colum bus. There is nothing to prevent the Penn sylvania legislature doing a little more municipality ripping. It has the courts with it. President Loree, of the Baltimore and Ohio, is another living refutation of the idea that the young man doesn't have a chance these days. The Michigan Bar association is after those judges who dabble in politics. When lawyers object to that sort of thing it must be very bad. Out in California they lynched five men for petty stealing. Perhaps it will be just as well for us to keep such items from the Filipinos. President Castro may depend upon it that the next minister to Venezuela will be a person with as much backbone as Mr. Loomis displayed. The arbitrators saved young Bernhardt the annoyance of driving out to the dueling ground. Arbitration is getting in its work in all directions. The trouble with a great many rather ordinary men may be traced to their dis position to regard themselves as a marked copy of something that is worth reading. The conflicting railroad interests have finally gotten together and the ordinary citizen will do well to see to it that all his belongings are securely fastened down. In the latest historical novel nine men are killed in the first chapter by the trusty sword of the hero. None of the authors of the yellow back stories of the frontier ever beat this. > > I r LOW RATES TO BUFFALO.

Call or write for full particulars. R. B. Wilson, traveling passenger agent Burlington Route, Walla Walla, Wash., Hotel Dacres. 36-3 Pullman Ordinary Sleepers. The tourist travel between the east and the Pacific coast has reached enormous proportions in the last few yean, and calls for a special class of equipment. To meet this demand the Pullman company has issued from its shops what it techni cally calls the "Pullman Ordinary Sleep er." These can appear similar to the regular sleepers being built on the same plan, but not furnished with the same elegance. They are equipped with mattresses, blankets, sheets, pillow-caaes, towels, combs, brushes, etc., requiring nothing of the kind to be furnished by the passenger. Each car has a stove for making tea and coffee and doing "light housekeeping" and each section can be fitted with an adjustable table. A uni formed porter accompanies each car, his business being to make up berths, keep the car clean, and look after the wants and comforts of the passengers. In each of the trains which ard despatched daily from Portland by the O. R. & N. Co. is to be found one of these "Pullman Ordi nary Sleepers." The car attached to the "Chicago-Portland Special" goes through to Chicago without change, and the one in the "Atlantic Express' ' runs to Kan sas city without change. Passengers in tbit car for Chicago change to a similar car at Granger. Much of the first-class travel is being carried iu these cars, the rates being lower, and the service nearly eqnal to that in the palace steepen. For rates and full information, includ ing folders, write to ' A. L. Craig, G. P. A., O. R. & N. Co., Portland, Oregon, for particulars $38 TO BUFFALO. Are you going?
