The street grading is out of the hands of the council till the bids are opened at the next meet- ing, and the sewer proposition is still waiting for the right-of-way at one or two points. The deeds to the ground for the outlet to the sewer over the Roberts and Crockett lots were re- ceived and referred to a committee. The council also gave emphatic notice that it did not intend to further allow the streets to be used as dumping grounds for refuse. The communication of County Aud- itor Vestal, giving the assessed valua- tions of the town, was filed for future reference. The bill of Dad Dennis for $16 was ordered paid, and the monthly report of Judge Sawyer was accepted, show- ing $60.40 collected in fines and costs. Death of Pratt Sweet Pratt Sweet, known generally as Dick, died Tuesday morning, Septem- ber 2,1, at 4 o'clock. He was brought up from Seattle about a week before, sick with typhoid pneumonia, and al- the he made a hard struggle for life, he finally succumbed to the dread di' sease. He was 37 years old and was born in Chickasaw county, Iowa, com- ing to Monroe about three years ago. He leaves a wife and two children, Richard and Dorothy. His mother, who is over "0, arrived from Kalispel, Mont., a few hours after his death. He has two brothers and one sister living in Kalispel and a brother living in Iowa. The funeral was held at the house on Lewis street Thursday afternoon, Rev. W. L. Richardson conducting the services, with a prayer by Rev. Mc- Kean and a solo by Miss Weeple. The B.otherhood of 0 ,ls then took charge of the services, carrying out the beau- tiful burial ritual of the order, con- ducted by the officers, Gus Harkins, Bert Griffiths and Howard Ratcliffe. The ceremony consisted of short read- ings at the house, a march of the or- der in a body to the burial grounds, and services at the grave. ..,o Card of Thanks To the friends, neighbors and lodges who have so kindly helped us during the sickness and death of our dear one, we tender our heartfelt thanks. That God may repay them in the full- ness of time is our prayer. IRs. R. QWEET AND CIIILDREN, Mns. S. E. SWEET. The Cannery Is Busy The Monroe cannery is crowded with fruit and velet.tbl2s for canning, having more than it can handle. Mr. Near states that if he had had any idea of the amount of produce offered he would have greatly increased his facilities, and that he will be com- pelled to enlarge his plant for next year. As it is the cannery is full of canned goods of all kinds. The sup- ply of prunes is especially heavy. Corn cnned on the cob is a novelty to many, of which quite a quantity has b:en put up. One farmer has been paid $50 for beans raised on a quarter of an acre. The cannery has been employing fifteen w(men. A Stove Factory Another indnstry has been added to the list. J. H. Hoffee this week turned out the first stove from his stove factory, and will manufacture for the trade. The stove is the large round wood heater that has become ,popular in stores and other semi- public places. Mr. tIoffee is using No. 16 steel for the sides, which is heavier than the kind others use, and it will not warp with heat. The tops and bottoms are molded in Seattle. The Monitor is only one dollar a year. From the County Records Articles of Incorporation--Moody & Moody Inc., September 17, 1907. Corporators are S. J. Moody and F. E. Moody. Capital stock $10,000.

Chamberlaln's Cough Remedy One of the Best on the larket For many years Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has constantly gained in favor and popularity until it is now one of the most staple medicines in use and has an enormous sale. It is intended especially for acute throat and lung diseases, such as coughs colds and croup, and can al- ways be depended upon. It is pleasant and sai'e to take and is undoubtedly the best in the market for the purposes for which it is intended. Sold by E. A. Roberts, the druggist. '. uu-- enomenofl o lea. It Is reported In La Presse bledleale of Paris that M. Sacerdote has discov- ered that the center of a block of arti- ficial lee is generady opaque, while the part first frozen, the outside, is gener- ally clear. As the water freezes slow- ly, all the Impurities are pushed away from the part first freezing. What- ever the character of the water which Is frozen, that obtained by melting the outer clear parts is almost perfectly pure, while the central opaque parts contain the impurities. Bacteria do not escape this law. but will be found centrally congregated. Spain'| Great John L.

To signalize the occasion he gave $10,000 to the poor of Cartagena and founded two asylums for the aged poor. The wedding presents, many of which bore cards from Spain's oldest and noblest families, filled three large rooms. By way of contrast it may be mentioned that the premier of Spain receives an annual salary of $4,000.-- Cleveland Leader. Deer Hid Its Heed. Last winter .ome of the Berlin Mills company's men caught a deer and fed It in an abandoned camp for a few days. The way the deer was caught was rather peculiar. They chased him in the snow, and the foolish deer In- stead of running away ran to a train load of logs and stood with his head sticking under the logs between two cars.
