The game next Sunday between Graanite Falls and Monroe will be the last of the league series to be played on the home grounds.

R. J. seems to be very particular as he has been going the improvement line for so long now that it would seem there was nothing left to do, but, as he says, the more the better. Don't miss this chance to see "The Wayfarer;" the pageant ends Satur- day night, August 1, and it may never be repeated in Seattle. Its the most spectacular thing of the kind shown in America, and the theme is the most sublime, and' with settings in full ac- cord, make it an inspiring spectacle. +++++++++++++, +* DUVALL NEWS -++++++++++++++ A bevy of deputy sheriffs from Se- attle here lately stirred things up quite a bit among the local brewers and distillers.

A mod- erate charge is advocated for over- night use of specially prepared and equipped camps such as those at Den- ny creek on the Sunset Highway and Eagle Creek on the Columbia River Highway. "W'e have gone too far in this mat- ter of giving things away," the Mot- orist declares, 'whether those things be commodities or services or privi- leges. In doing so we have seriously undermined the self respect of thou- sands of those who travel the high- ways. Many have come to consider as a right what is really a privilege; when fees were first charged in mun- icipal camps they felt and spoke as though they had, been imposed upon. "Camnin in a national forest camp- II ground is a special privilege. At the]l larger camps, such as Denny Creek ll and Eagle Falls, elaborate installa-I tions, fireplaces, running water, rood-I/ ern sanitary facilities, etc., have been[ placed, and fuel is furnished as well.[ It scarcely seems possible that any-[ one can seriously contend that he has| a right to these things.

Gustin, daugh- camps which have been .specially pre- ters Helen and Edna, drove to Seattle Tuesday, to see the Templar parade, and remained for "The Wayfarer" in the evening. Mrs. Forest West, and daughter, Genevieve, and son, Forest, Jr., of Entiat, are visiting with her daugh- ter, Mrs. Newton :Lutz, Monroe. Mr. and Mrs. t. G. Rhode and son, Herbert, are at Lake Chelan, sum- mering for a few weeks. This is a wonderfully fine scenic section of the Cascades, and a most wonderful lake for boating and fishing. City civil engineer E. L. Billings is fixing things up in fine shape on his home on south Blakely street, dnsid'e and out. Mrs.. Thornton, from the Eagle Co. store, spent the week end in Seattle, at the home of friends. Sam Wright, farm superintendent at the Washington state reformatory, is held in Canada for the reason that the Canadian quota into this country is full. Mr. Wright, who is a veteran of the world's war, served in the Can- pared for the camper. That charge should be based upon the cost of maintenance of the camp system of the national forests as a whole, plus an amount sufficient to write off the cost of the improvements over a red-I sonable perid of years, whatever the life of those improvements might be. "The forest service is in the re- creational game unescapably. The recreational opportunities are there i'n the forests; failure to use them would be a waste; their administra- tion" can most economically be com- bined with the other administrative duties of the service.
