We Have a Hot Time all the Round Over
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
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

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
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.

LOW RATES TO BUFFALO.
If you are going to the exposition, or
any other point east, do not make your

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.

ing folders, write to '
