A creamery meeting was held Satur- day to discuss the cheese-making pro- ject and committees were named to find out how much milk could be secured and what the expense of additional ma- chinery would be. Another meeting will be held May 13 to decide the mat- ter. The commissioners received a petition asking them to close the highways be- tween Marysville and Arlington to pub- lic grazing. Against this has been fil- led several protests. Residents near Monroe and Park Place ask that the highways be kept open there, and others near Lake Stevens are resisting the closing of highways in that vicinity. Tramps got into the house down tie track that has been occupied by Mil- waukee Agent R. V. Cummings and his sister Saturday night and got away with a couple of suits of clothes and other articles. Mr. Cummings was up town and his smter out of town, and when he got home he found the fires going and evidence of the depredation in the shape of remnants of a hastily cooked supper. Wm. McCarthy, proprietor of the Elk Bar, was arrested and fined $25 and costs Monday for opening the saloon on Sunday. It is against the state law to open a saloon on Sunday for any pur- pose but the saloons here have opened generally for the purpose of swamping out. In the case of the Elk Bar, the situation was aggravated by the belief that liquor was taken out by the swamp- ers for men who were drunk in the vi- eini'.y. The Mercantile added another to their list of victories Sunday by winning from Gold Bar by the score of 15 to 10. The grounds were sloppy and it rained dur- ing the game. The locals had a big lead in the sixth, the score standing 14 to 2 but Gold Bar got in two scores and in the next inning with three men on bases, a home run was scored. The locals featured in their base stealing and double plays. On Sunday the Ev- erett K. C. team will play here and citizens generally should turn out well and encourage the Mercantile boys with their support. They have won five out of six times and bid fair to make a Monroe baseball record this year. Chamberlain's Liuiment This is a new preparation and a good one. It is especially valuable as a cure for chronic and muscular rheumatism, and for the relief from pain which it affords in acute inflammatory rheuma- tism. Those who have used it have in- variably spoken of it in the highest terms of praise. Lame back, lame shoulder and stiff neck are du to rheu- matism of the muscles, usually brought on by exposure to cold or damp, and are quickly cured by applying this lini- ment freely and massaging the affected parts. Soreness of the muscles, wheth- er induced by violent exercise or injury is allayed by this liniment. For sale b' W. E.Mansfield. Camp Bros, Just Druggists ] For Rent--Ranch near Monroe.

Root, Hog, or Die.--Many years ago, when Coxey was on his way back east, John Bloom took a stroll along the beach at Fairhaven, Wash., on Chuck- anut Bay to prospect a clam ranch. We were all hard up then and needed encouragement, and we took a teaspoon- full of medicine to brace us up. On the beach we found a wreck, and the name of the beat was Root, Hog, or Die. It fitted the times. We took a teaspoon- ful of medicine to brace us up and get started right again. We leave it to the public to name the medicine. Oscar & Bloom, Medicine Men.
