Doiloff--- Gravity System Will Be in- staled The Monroe Water & Light Com- pany of Monroe, Washington, has as- signed its franchise for the water sup- ply of the town to J. E. Dolloff of this place, and sold its complete system of pipes and mains, with the exception of the pumping station. The present management will con- tinue to pump according to the terms of the franchise until such time as the new gravity system can be success- fully installed, after which the town will have the benefit of as fine a sup- ply of water as any town in the North- west. It is the policy of the new manage- ment to furnish free water uncondi- tionally for all town hydrants, public buildings, and for sprinkling purposes. This can be done when the new system is installed, as there is abundant sup- ply of water at the source of the new system, and the cost of letting it run O.4i,o*a$ :will be nothing as compared with the :lpresent pumping proposition. -  :|J|l l A system of this kind has been - I.J|lM! !!

A Valuable tome lec00ne $ r @ I Will Break Up a Cold in 24 Hours or Cure + Any Cough that is Curable " I $ * - i @ @ @ t acid, relieving the most obstinate cases of rheumatism and kidney trouble. For this purpose the treatment is very sim- ple: a few drops on loaf sugar taken night and morning. Mix one-half ounce of concentrated oil of pine with two ounces of glycerine and a half pint of good whisky. Shake thoroughly and use in tablespoon doses every four hours. The renowned throat and lung specialist who established a camp for consumptives in the pine woods of Maine. and whose remarkable cures there attracted international atten- tion, declares that the above formula is one of the very best remedies obtainable for an acute cold and that it wiil strengthen the lungs, relieve coughs and heal the 5ranch]el tubes. Also, that it will cure any case of lung trouble not too far advanced if the patient will assist by plenty of out- door exercise, inhaling deep, long breaths every few minu Les. The ingredients are procurable of any gem prescription druggist and easily mixed at home. and should take its place as one of tie most valued remedies in the family medicine <:hest. !nquiry at one of the leading druggists elicited the in- formation that Concentrated oil of pine is put up for dispens- ing only in half-ounce vials securely sealed " round screwtop cases intended to protect it from hea+ .d light. The oils sold in bulk and the patent medicim put up and labeled "0il of Pine," are to be avoided because, owing to their im- purities, they produce nausea and are useless as a medicine; besides they sometimes leave permanent kidney trouble. Make sure to get the "Concentrated" oil of pine in a screw- top case and you will have the real article. It has also proven a perfect neutralizing agent for uric Additional Locals About four inches of snow last night caused the mills and camps to shut down today• The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. John Bachelder died Wednesday after- noon at 4 o'clock.

Ralph Moran, 15 gears old, died Wednesday at the family home in Cherry Valley, after a short illness with typhoid fever. He was a son of the late Peter Moran of Seattle, and was buried there this afternoon. A bowling team composed of W. C. White, Thos. W. Stranger, Arthur Mc- Gill, Dan Dawley and William Farmer went down to Snohomish Wednesday evening to play a series of games with The Palm team of that city. The Monroe team won by 190 points. This morning the weight of snow on the wires carried down an electric light wire of the Seattle-Tacoma Power Company at Snohomish onto the Farm- ers telephone wire, burning out cen- tral and breaking connection with Snohomish with all outside points. The operators had a lively time for a few minutes. Wm. McKeough of Snohomish is in the city. Being in Redmond, a small town on the N. P., and having a piece of land to cruise in the direction of Monroe, he left on foot yesterday morning, did the cruising, and arrived in Monroe shortly before noon today, traveling in a heavy snowstorm a la:ge )art]on of the way. Two North Carolinians engaged in m affray of honor at the Washington Bar last evening, and one of them re- ceived a stab with a knife.

No convicts have been guillotined in Paris for ten years, and the sentences of those condemned to death have been commuted to imprisonment for life. The reason for this lies In the fact that the taw provides that all oll capital executions shall be held in } public, and since the guillotine was re- moved from fhe Place de la Boquette ten years ago no other place has been , found for it. The residents in the neighborhood of every peace suggest- ed object to its-erection near them• The authorities were lately put in a quandary when a condemned man re- fused to ask for a commutation of his sentence and declared that they must put him to death• The Most Important Years. "The reent death of Carl Sehurz calls to mind," says Enos Clarke of St. Louis, Me., "a conversation wtfl Mr. Schurz some years since while in St. Louis, when he spoke of his return a few years previous to Germany and efa long and friendly interview with Prince Bismarck• During thls inter- view the prince asked Mr. Schurz hls age, and on being answered that he was then nearing his seventieth birth- day the prince quickly replied, "Let me telI you, General Schurz, that the first seventy are the most important years of one's life•" Rifles For the Philippines.
