IHRIG held the lucky number -1000 - that drew the fine cutter at F. BOSSONG's on
December 31. Miss Sarah ACKLEY of Ellensburg, came down to Yakima Wednesday evening and is the guest of
Miss BARGE. Charley HOW invites you to give his restaurant - the Maison Doree -- a call when you want a
good square meal. W. A. THOMAS made a trip to Tunnel City this week in the interests of the new school
district recently organized there. He stopped over a few hours in Seattle. Peter SCHULLER and C. F. SCHANNO spent the holidays in Yakima. Mr. and Mrs. FARRELL spent several days in Tacoma and Portland, since our last issue. Will
says it was a great treat to get away from the bench and spend a few days in the city and

We hope the Great Northern will build across from Wenatchee to Ellensburg. Walter REED, register of the land office, spent Christmas in Cle Elum, returning Monday

property there on which he will build as soon as the weather will permit. C. C. POLAND, who has filled the office of assessor to the satisfaction of all, regardless
of party... steps down and out on Monday. Many are the people who regret his defeat at the
polls last November... Kirk WHITED, who has filled the office of prosecuting attorney, also steps down and out.
He was not a candidate for re-election, hence he suffered no defeat. Mr. WHITED labored under
many disadvantages during his term, his pathway was not as pleasant as would be that of a more
pliant man.


Mrs. L. E. EVANS and her husband celebrated their golden anniversary on the 3rd. The
remarkable thing about it all is that three members of Mrs. EVANS's family have celebrated
their golden anniversary within three months just past, a brother in Washington, D. C., and
another brother in Akron, Ohio. Mr. and Mrs. EVANS are nice people and we hope they may live
to enjoy many years, although both are quite feeble now.
