REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice at Monroe, Washington, under the act of March 3, 1879. SPLENDID TRIBUTE TO BACKERS OF COLUMBIA BASIN. High praise of the fine spirit of supporters of the Columbia basin project was spoken at Sandpoint by Congressman Swing of California, when Sandpoint resi- dents expressed fears that completion of the project might entail a loss to them through property damage at high water. While reassuring them that congress would make provision for reimbursing them for any such losses, Congressman Swing said: "I think you can all easily adjust your differ- ences. The supporters of the project are to be can- gratulated on bringing the delegation here to meet you and learn your protests. It indicates a fine spirit. Evidently they have nothing to conceal. I feel sure that you people and the supporters of the basin can easily adjust your differences. They are not so great but what they can be overcome. This was a splendid tribute to the representative business and professional men of the Pacific northwest who are backing the Columbia basin project. Such local opposition as was expressed by Sandpoint residents to the members of the house committee on reclamation and irrigation was known to the basin supporters before the itinerary was arrange@. It would have been a simple matter to omit Sand- point from the list of places to be visited. It would have been possible to shut out any voice of protest from the ears of the visiting congressmen. Such opposition might have been detoured without the congressmen being any the wiser. Such tactics, however, have never been part of the policy of the friends of the Columbia basin. They have always put all the cards on the table. They have nothing to conceal. They have given caurteous, considerate hear- ing to all sides and all suggestions. They realize that the fullest possible results are only possible in that way. Congressman Swing recogni.zed the broad, tolerant spirit back of the decision to include Sandpeirit in the itinerary. The other congressmen und)ubtedly share his feelings. The differences are not great. There would have been no object in concealing them from the visit- ing congressmen. As Congressman Swiaag said: "I think you can all easily adjust your differences."--Spokesman- Review. A TRAIL OF YESTERDAY Where Indian pinks and tiger lilies stray 'Cross thnbered hills I portaged yesterday; Where stalwart pines stood stretching heaven high Along the moss lined trail I travelled by; Were clustered asters purple, blue and white Among dead pines, now standing, black as night; With scattered windfalls, trees I used. to know Stark dead things that only centuries grow. Here miles of dead trees whispered all about, "Halt, Mr. Camper! See that your fire is out." Affable Fellow Passenger on the express: "So you are an actor ? I am a banker, and I thiaak it must be at least fifteen years since I was at a theater." Actor: "And I'm quite certain it's at least fifteen years ,since I was at a bank." After a sleepless night a man suffering from tooth- ache spoke of his woes to art enthusiastic be]lever in the system of healing by auto-suggeStion. "You must repeat over and over again this phrase: 'Get thee behiaad me, pain['" he was told. "What[" gasped the other, "an5 get lumbago ? No jolly fear[" AWAY WITH SUCH A DOCTRINE[ Happily for the nation, not many persons will agree with Thomas Arkle Clark, dean of men at the Univer- sity of Illinois, who asserts in an article in The American Magazine that children are not at all necessary to mar- ried happiness and that they often call for sacrifices greater than the comfort they bring in return. Such selfish doctrine never will find converts in the great American home. It is the doctrine of despair, in- dicating a soul withered and atrophied, or the well- spring of |eve and unselfish service dried up. Dr. Clark has carelessly passed by one of the greatest joys of life, that of taking chi'ldren into his arms and hearing them call him "Daddy." Therel is a greater purpose in God's gift of children than the mere perpetuaton of the race. They enlarge ou' hearts and teach us an appreciation of the higher thm+ in life. No more melancholy picture could be painted than a community without children. Who would want such a world as Dr. Clark presents to us? What i'f the possession of children entail sacri. rices and responsibilities? There are compensations so abundant that lessons of discipline, of economy and of patience seem as nothing. A wise man once said: "Beware of him who hates the laughter of a child." Children are the hands by which we take hold on heaven; they are the tendrils that reach ta the portals of eternity divine. He is not a good citizen or a pleasant neighbor who tells us that children are not essential to our happiness.--Seattle Times. THE GAME'S AFOOT. The Army and Navy Journal of Washington, the joint organ of the services, shows no signs of depression over the result of the Geneva conference. Not at all! Instead it sees the "errors" of the Washington confer- 1 ence partly atoned for and looks forward to a gala time with the people of the United States putting up un- limited money for the "big navy" people to spend. Says the Army and Navy Journal: "Boiled down to essentials, Great Britain has served notice she will never surrender the supremacy of the seas and that she will not permit equality. We call on the nation to direct congress to provide a navy which will make the United States dominant afloat, as it wou!d have been but for the Washington conference. The charge here made' is, it will be noted, precisely the charge which is being made by most of the London newspapers--only it is in reverse. The London news- papers say that the conference failed because accept- ance of the U. S. proposition meant American naval supremacy in the name of nominal parity. The cor- responding American assertion is that the British, by adhering to their proposition, declared that they would never surrender the supremacy of the 'seas. Both, bear- ing in mind their technical prepossessions, are right; and we shall have these points of views emphas'zed and driven home in both countries by those who think it .patriotic, or find it in their interests, to continue and make perpetual the disagreement of Geneva. Only the credulous will take comfort from the pious assurances that, despie the blow-up at Geneva, the gov- ernments will carry on negotiations with a view to suc- ceeding where the negotiators failed. "This war," said Clemenceau in 1814, "is far too serious to be entrusted to the generals." The questions involved in the discus- sion at Geneva were far too serious to be entrusted to the technicians. Nevertheless they were entrusted to them. The governments were unable or unwilling to con- trol them; and it is reasonable to assume that they will not now make any serious attempt to modify a situation which is wholly pleasing to the gentlemen in Washington for whom the Army and Navy Journal speaks.--Mani- toba Free Press. Neighbors of a Kansas farmer are enjoying radio concerts with him by connecting their loud speakers to a barbed wire fence which is attache to his receiving apparatus. The teacher asked her class to explain the word "Bachelor," and was very much amused when a little girl answered: "A bachelor i a very happy man." "W, here did you learn that?" asked the teacher. "Father told me." I WATCH HIM GROW LL OF US are just as anxious to see Monroe grow as these fond par- ents are of watching their lusty offspring assume larger and healthier proportions. Towns, like human beings, need proper care and attention in order to thrive. The people in them must promote the business and social life of the community and support and patronize local enterprises. Without stores, schools, churches, newspapens, etc., there can be no town. With this support and patronage Monroe will continue to grow. They are the nourishment which it needs in order to develop into the bigger and better city which we all want to see.

HINTS ON FLAVOR Flavor is a subtle, alluring thing, and yet it is of utmost importance in cookery, as food must please the palate to give pleasure as well as nourishnent. Flavor is that something whiclJ dis t ingu i shes really artistic home cookery from the nondescript boarding house variety, and it is what makes French cookery seem so very unusual and delicious to the average American who goes al)road. The simplest of seasonings is salt, but" to salt food properly is an art, Food too salty is fiat and tasteless. 'he same thing is true of the peppers we use in seasoning; too much is an- noying; just enough enhances the flavor. The European cook not only uses onion and leeks freely, but knows how to use them in that suggestive manner wltl skill and delicacy that shows her artistry. A clove of garlle rubbed on the inside of the salad bowl will give that touch of flavor, and this Is not eonsidered by her too much trouble. Spices and condiments are used by the Europeans with a great finesse, thereby gaining piquant flavors, so blended, that no one can be distin- guished. It is more a matter of taking in. finite pains with cookery that pro- duces these tasty foods than an ex- travagant expenditure of money for rare foods and flavors. The careful cooking of meats, close- ly covered to hold in all the flavor, the cooking down to make the delicious brown sauce with which to serve it-- all small details--but so important In "food and flavor. Puddings, custards, sauces, cakes and baked apples will all have a more mellow flavor if made with sugar that has been caramelized. Place the de- sired amount in a heavy saucepan or iron frying pan and stir over the heat until the sugar is me!ted and of the color of maple sirup. It ts well to rnember that caramelized sugar is less sweet, so some su.ur should b used with it or more of the caramel used. FACTS ABOUT TYPHOID FEVER The only way to catch i is to eat it. Food, water and milk are some- times contaminated by the intestinal discharges of persons ick with di- sease and by those who carry germs without sign of illness. Any one tak- ing the germs into the system by mouth stands a good chance of get- ting typhoid. Vacativn typhoid is not necessary. Avoid water from any side streams, springs and wells. Don't eat food from places that are not clean and are not screened from flies. Heat raw milk 140 degrees Fahren- heit for a few minutes. Before leaving in your machine or going on a camping trip, take the anti-typhoid treatment.
