Tacks unable to help them. The seventh case of typhoid fever developed at Walla Walla last week and the health department issued an- other warning to the public to be care- ful of its water supply. The safe at the Ryderwood Mercan- tile company store, in Ryderwood, 30 miles north of Longview, was blown and $2200 in cash was stolen and two cash registers were rifled. Lucile Dyer, 10, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Dyer, Cosmopolis, died at the Aberdeen general hospital as a result of a bullet wound accidentally inflicted by her brother Edward. What is believed the first flour ground from 1925crop wheat in Wash. ington was milled by the Northern flour mills in Walls Walla last week. It was from Jenkins club wheat. A new fireproof two-room school house to replace the building burned last summer is under construction at Salmon Creek and will be completed by the time school opens this fall. Orlan Dewait, 39, and Nels 35, died in a Snoqualmie hospital Sat- urday as a result of injuries received in a short circuit in the power plant of the Snoqualmie Lumber company. Seattle entertained 1250 midship- men of the United States naval academy who are on their annual training cruise on the battleships New York, Arkansas and Utah last week. Contracts for furnishing six state institutions In western Washington with 13,000 tons of steam coal at an aggregate cost of $40,575 have been awarded by the state purchasing agent. Approximately 10,000 young men and women were graduated from the high schools of the state of Wash- ington during 1925, according to an estimate of the state department of education. "i Unable to swim, and while floating in the lake with an inflated auto- mobile inner tube, Mrs. Gladys Peter- son, 24-year-old bride, was drowned in Lake Union within a few feet of her home. oyster dredging on the American coast was the hardest work In the world. The two dredges were wound in by hand, and that everlasting wind- ing, balanced on a swaying deck, was wicked work. The moment one dredge was aboard the oysters had to be "culled," and the whole eight men of the crew were working against time from dawn till dark. The dock laborer's Job is another which entails tremendous physical el-i fort. A steamer's time is money, and when cargo is being discharged not one moment must be wasted by any of those engaged. Tbe amount of work that can be done in one day is ahuost incredible. An inquest on a dock laborer who died suddenly on a wharf was held some time ago at which it was stated that on the day of his death he had unloaded no fewer than 36,000 wood paving blocks. Sight of Cats and Owls The belief that cats and owls can see in the dark is a popular fallacy. The iris of a cat's eye is capable of great variation, so as to admit more or less light, thus enabling the cat to see much better In the dusk than can hulnans, but in absolute darkness all animals are as helpless as any human being. Tbe feature which adapts cer- tain eyes for use with only a poor light is the constitution of the retina which is composed of two sets of struc- tures, the so-called rods and cones. The rods are apparently affected by radiation slightly before the cones and hence some creatures, including owls, whose eyes possess a large pro- portion of cones, are better suited for seeing in a faint light. Another Good Way "That's a fine car. How did yet get it?" "Out of a prize competition."" "Did you win it?" "No, I organized lt."--London Pass ing Show. Rainier Park is being crowded to entertainment capacity. Is a Lion afraid of a cock? Medieval wiseacres used to wag their heads and tell tales like this in the village marketplace. An amusing superstition, of course, but is it any more absurd than the belief that there is something mysteriously "better" about eastern motor oils just because they cost more and come from eastern crudes? Professional drivers and coon<row-run experts out after records don't share this supetiti(m---why should you pay tribute? choice of IVestern Motorists Zerolene lubricates more cars in the Pacific Coast states than any other oil made--a better oil if it does cost less. Zerolene increases the gasoline mileage, reduces the carbon removal and maintenance costs and lengthens the life of any car in which it is used. As a matter of fact the best crude so far dis- rered for the manufacture of motor lubri- cants is obtained on the Pacific Coast. And the most highly developed refining process is the high-vacuum process, the patents on which are held by this Company. And 15 positive checks on Zerolene at the refinery make quality con- trol absolute. Why pay tribute to superstition when you want the best oil you can get? Insist on Zero- iene--ask for it by name. Get the Facial ingr.ity Dizplayz:l by Spider Repairing Web On the porci ,,t" a llloLllltain (!tlag(  in Pennsylvania a tiny sl)ide',' ws seen to repair her web ill a very in teresting manner. The web, except for the threads that spread radially from the center, was fern and weath- erbeaten; the spokes, so to speak, were Intact and tightly stretched. Starting at the center, the spider ran outward along a radial thread, sweep- Ing it clear of the cross threads, breaking them and collecting the frag- ments until she had a tiny bundle. That she would roll Up with her claws and toss out into the air to drop to the ground as waste material. Appar- ently the gummed points of intersec- tion of threads she softened quickly by fluid from the mouth, for she stripped the spoke perfectly clean. (The observer found later that he could not strip a spoke of cross threads by sliding a split twig along it.) Returning to the center along the stripped spoke, the spider would free the adjoining spoke, pausing now and then to throw away her tiny ball of waste. Having reduced her web to spokes only, she proceeded to replace the part of the web that she had cleared away, spinning anew the threads that were to stretch from spoke to spoke. Such a striking example of economy of time, material and labor was a de- light to see.--Youth's Companion. Do Not Force Plantm If a plant has been growing thriftily for some time and then begins to go back It probably needs a rest, and no amount of forcing will do any perma- nent good. During the resting period a plant is better If left entirely alone in a dry, cool cellar. It will of its own accord and without any attention of any kind begin to put out new green shoots. When these new shoots show themselves the plant should be given a thorough watering, a repotting if nec- essary, and brought up into its place in the sun. After it Is growing well it may be given fertilizer. Central Washington's oft fruit crop will be worth $2,000,000. ++++++++ I" : 1assilird : +++++++++++++++++ FOR SALE FOR SALE--Grocery store, Park Place, good location.--See P. A.
