A great deal of inter- est has been developed among the young ladies in the sewing classes over the Dollar Dress contest inaugurated by the Monitor-Transcript and the dresses made by the girls will be shown. Alto- gether it is said that about twenty-five drzsses have been made and the work is so good that the judges will have a hard job in deciding the winners. This paper offered a prize of $5 for the best Dollar Dress made and Principal Took- er added a second prize. Many of the dresses made are said to be distinctly charming examples of pretty and ser- viceable summer gowns for young women. In judging the contest, the csst and quality of work will enter largely into the decisions of the judges. The work will be judged Wednesday afternoon next, the day before the !exhibit, and the following ladies have been named to officiate: Mrs. J. C. FaN coner, chairman, Mrs. M. A. Frost, Mrs. H. H. Weller, Mrs. J. H. Camp- bell and Mrs. W. W. Eddy. SNOHOMISH COUNTY IN GOOD SHAPE Snohomish county is prosperous. The state bureau of inspection of ac- counts has filed its report at Olympia, following the examination of books of this county, and the statement shows the community to have assets fax in excess of the liabilities. The report gives resources of $505,478 with liabili- ties of $443,963, and this does not in- mercial Club, had stated that the Stan- wood club was going to make a trip over here by auto some time soon and a resolution "-was adopted favoring giving them a cordial invitation and planning for their entertainment. There was considerable discussion of the good roads question and W. E. Bartholomew strongly urged the con- necting up of the roads on the sooth bank of the Skykomish between Mon- roe and Sultan. This will not likely be done this year but it is hoped to bring it about before long. The members of the club favored including the Sn0ho- mish road on the north road of the marsh in the bonding proposition as work on the main road will be done this summer. It was also considered advis- able to boost the including of the new Sultan road in the bonding proposition. If the bonds should carry, these two roads would be of great importance in helping to develops the section. It was stated that the road over the hill from the Snoqualmie bridge was going to be built this year. Commis- sioner Fleming has promised to carry it through. Messrs. Scott & Beall were elected to membership. while the realizable assets, consisting of court house, jail and grounds, furni- ture and fixtures, poor farm, hospital and grounds, and pest house, are valu- ed at $327,000. The outstanding warrants in the cur- rent expense, road and bridge, game protection and county institute funds total $210,963, while the county's bond- ed indebtedness totals $233,000.

Hutchinson & Shields Re-Open Moody Store How to Kill the Tent Caterpillar t New Business Firm Has the Big De-iJ. L. Stahl, Western Washington Ex- partment Store t peHment Station After negotiations looking towards a I "What shall I do for the tent cater- sale have kept the Moody & Moody store closed for the past six weeks, a transfer of ownership took place this week which gives possession of the store to the Hutchinson, Shields Co. Inc, the members of which are enter- prising and successful young business men who have the Capital to properly handle the volume of business done in the big corner department store. The members'of the firm are Mr. G. pillar? Almost every mail brings this inquiry to the Experiment Station. This de- structive insect winters in the egg state, the egg mass being often found in a circle around a small twig. The larvae or worms hatch in early spring and soon form peculia tents upon the nearest fork of a twig. The worms feed on the foliage during the day time and go into the tent at night. i W. Hutchinson, of Seattle, an experi-i As a means of control, spray the enced retail merchant, whose wife will I trees thoroughly with an arsenical such be associated with, him in the store, I as arsenate of lead (two pounds diluted and Mr. J. E. Shields, of Detroit. The l partners are successful and experienc d i business men and they are very opti-J mistic in their belief in the future of l Monroe. "I think that this is a good t town," said Mr. Hutchinson, "good enough in which to take a chance with my capital. There seems to be lots of 'country not yet opened up and the pos- sibilities of future development are very great." It is the intention of the firm and its policy to build the store bigger and bet-I tor and carry such lines of goods as l will tend to make it a growing trade i center for the Monroe valleys and offer every facility for the people to get what they want at home. New goods commenced arriving this week and more will come in until the stock is ful- ly replenished to meet the needs of the season. Miss Ida Berg is retained as clerk. There has been much question in town as to the final disposition of the Moody stock and it is a matter of sat- isfaction to every local business man that it has passed into the hands of owners who appear to be the kind of citizens the community is pleased to welcome. As the biggest department store in this section, the Hutchinson Shields Co. may be expected to wield a big influence in helping to make Mon- roe a constantly growing trade center and it is the hope of every resident in fifty gallons of water.) Also burn the tents with a torch. A good torch can be easily made by forming a cone of fine screen wire and nailing it point downward to a long pole. Fill the cones with rags soaked in kerosene; light the torch and hold it to the tent. The insects as they become hot will leave the tent and drop into the burn- ing cone and be destroyed. A burning rag on the end of a pole without the wire cone will burn out the tents but will not catch the worms as they drop and many of them crawl up other trees. "Is it too late to spray for apple scab?" Apple scab has been forming on the 'oung fruits and leaves for some time but if the grower has not sprayed for this disease or has only made the clus- Lining, up in Good Shape for the Fourth Monroe in the Field Earlv and Will Get the Biggest Crowd The advertising committee for the Fourth of July celebration got out into the game this week in force and posted the country to North Bend and Snoho- mish and Index with the big posters announcing the gala celebration to be held here. They met with hearty wel- come and were told that Monroe had a reputation for entertaining the people on a holiday and that the bunch would see the old town through again this year. Tolt and Sultan are planning on cel- ebrating but neither town can possibly offer the attractions that will furnish amusement here. Snohomish also got into the field after Monroe but they do not seem to be making much headway. Monroe will entertain the crowd and a list of attractions is offered that wilt nake every visitor enjoy a happy day. The big bills tell the story. By-the-by, have you noticed them? They are hav- ing a lot of fun over a marked peculi- arity that passes unnoticed by most of those who read the bills. Some fast woodsmen are expected to take part in the bucking contest and the harnessing contest has awakened a lot of interest. Most of the young farm- ers of this vicinity are practicing up secretly with the hopes of copping off the prize money. And as for the ba- bies, bless their little souls, Messrs. Moulton, Waddell and Dr. Soll and the other members of the committee are commencing to be the subjects of out- and-out bribery. The bachelors, espec- ially, are showered with invitations to dinner by all the doting mothers in the community, THE SCHOOL ArENDANCE SHOWS MARKED INCREASE Superintendent Coleman has compil- ed some figures for the year's atten dance that show a marked increase in ppulation in this school district over last year. The number of days of school attendance was 70,221; average daily attendance 390; total enrollment 557: per cent. of attendance 95.3. Last year the average daily atten- dance was 349 with a total enrollment of 476. The increase in the average daily attendance was 41, or 12 per cent. Miss Orne's room had the the banner attendance with a per cent. of 97.3. The teachers have practically all gone away for their summers. Mr. Coleman does not know yet where he will go. Misses Temple, Herron, Orne, Morton, Newton have gone to their homes in Everett; Miss Lewis accompanied her mother, who has been visiting here, to the rose carnival at Portland, after which they will go to their home at Deer Park, the Misses Sample have gone to Illinois and Miss Harmon to her home in Oregon. Miss Coleman will spend the summer with her parents at Centralia and Miss Danforth in British Columbia. NEW TYPES OF ROADS IN KING COUNTY For the first time in the history of King County have contracts been let for hard-surfaced country roads to be built on a Portland Cement Concrete Base. On May 29 the County Commis- sioners voted to award contracts for two pieces of work of the truly perma- nent character, now demanded by en- lightened taxpayers. Brick, laid on a 5-inch concrete base, will be used on the Kent-Auburn road (Permanent Highway 3 A), while "Warrenite," underlaid with a 4-inch concrete base, will be used on the Red- mond-Snoqualmie Falls. While "Warrenite" has in many ter bud spraying he should not neglect states been laid on a Portland Cement to make another application as soon as concrete base, King County has here- possible, tofore accepted the bitumenous rock Lime sulfur solution is the most de- base. sirable material to use as a spray for Of late it has been learned that noth- apple scab.
