Lame Back This is an ailment for which Cham- berlain's Pain Balm has proven espe cially valuable. In almost every in- stance it affords prompt and permanent relief. Mr. Luke LaGrange of Orang o, Mich., says of it: "After using'a plas- ter and other reinedca for three weeks for a lame back, I purchased  bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and two ap- plications effected a cure." For sale by E. A. Roberts, druggist. of the state of Washington is valued at $90,000,000--far more than wheat, coal and the fisheries combined ; that 101,000 men are employed, to whom are paid in wages annually the sum of $70,000,000. The cutting off of $45,- 000,000 should be of se r'ous moment to every citizen of the state. The lumber dealers of i5 of the middle states, numbering 819, now purchase 24,510 c::rloads of lumber and 8,961 carloads of shingles annually from the state, and they will take less than 15 per cent of this after the rate goes into effect; 747 of them say they will not use Washington shingles at at all. The lumbermen are in no position to absorb this advance of $3.30 per 1000 feet, because their profits today average only $1.50 per 10C0 feet. It is unquestionably true, in this connec- tion, that advances in the prices of lumber have been made the past three years, but the advance in labor, sup- plies, logs and stumpage have also i taken place, and the average profit is as stated. In the showing made by the Pacific Coast Lumber Manufacturers Ass?cla- rion, lumber already pays more per car than many commodities. Sugar has a 60 cent rate from San Francisco to New York as against 80 cents on shingles from Seattle to the Atlantic coast. Silk pays less than lumber. In 1906 the lumber freights paid $4,000,000 more than all the operat- ing expenses of the entre Northern Pacific system. The cost of hauling a trainload of lumber was $1,200.44 and the earnings :f6,120, according to the company's annual report. The Monitor is only $1 a year. 330; real, $184,720; total, $270,050. For 1906 the valuations were placed at: Personal, $72,417; real, $167,382; total, $239,799. John Holmes the tailor and B. B. Goff, the Everett representative of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, have rented the store room in the Crooker building. The room has been parti- tioned, and Mr. Holmes has taken pos- session, the west half being tempo- rarily occupied with a display of the International Correspondence School. Mrs. R. G. Matthews writes from Vancouver, B. C., to her mother, Mrs. William Sawyer, regarding the anti- Japanese and Chinese riots last week: "Uncle Billy, George and I were out till 2 o'clock Saturday night to see what was going on. We had to run to keep out of the way of the mob and to keep from getting hit with rocks. There were about three thou- sand men in the parade. They came up Hastings street past our store to the city hall, and then to Chinatown. They broke all the glass windows with rocks. Some men got hurt badly. The Chinese all went back to work Wed- nesday morning, so everything is all right." A complete line of Stleon Shoes at J. E. DOLLOFF & CO. The Knights of Pythias had a big time Wednesday night on the occasion of the finishing the initiation of a class of eight candidates, it also being the first annual anniversary of the lodge.
