The matter of secur ing postal delivery service requires time. There are several requirements of law that must be fully complied with. The streets must be named and houses num bered. This takes time and has been partly completed. Then sidewalks must be laid. This requirement is going for ward as fast « possible. Then a building suitable for a delivery office must be sup plied. After all this the whole must be inspected by postal officials and favorably reported on. Then tbe department 1 re quires still further time to arrange for the transfer of the office from its present state to the new. Anyway Lewiston cannot hope, even if all the requirements are fully met, to get the service installed before the close of the fiscal year, which is. June 30, 1902 Senator Stacy Tells a Story. J. N. Stacy, an Elk City, Idaho, min ing man, who is at the Perkins, tells t true grouse story, but never tells it with out getting his feelings hurt, m no one will believe Mm. He was in the Bitter Root Mountains in the dead of winter, where the snow was 27 feet deep, he says, but tbe log cabin in which he lived was only 15 feet high. He was. therefore obliged to reverse the usual order of things and go down to the roof instead of going up when he passed from the mouth of his tunnel to the house. One morning he wm climbing out when he «pied a grouse within good shooting distance and he returned for bis rifle. He took dead aim at the bird's head, and when the smoke cleared away the gronse wu still sitting on tbe log, quite unconcerned. He placed another cartridge in tbe gnn and took aim at'the neck this time, to be suye of getting low enough. When the smoke cleared off the bird was still there. He always had confidence in himself and tbe gun, but began to think there must be something the matter with one or the other, as he took aim for a third time, but at the bird's legs. Same result. Then he became desperate, and, taking a rest, shot at the bird's body, regardless of the danger of tearing the game all to pieces. This time the shot took effect and the bird fell. When Mr. Stacy went ont to the log he found four dead grouse, one with the head shot off, the second hit in the neck, the third in the low« part of the body, and the l«t riddled through and through. He accounts for it on the theorv that there were four birds, and that one hoo ped on the log as tbe other wu knocked ° ff - .' vllen hi * friends smile at the yarn .tLiölTÄ 7 *;. .u' ^ UCTc rtheless declared it to be tbe gospel truth — Oregonian.
