John GILMORE informs the public that he has removed his blacksmithing to the shop on Fourth street, between
Pine and Ruby streets, Ellensburgh, where he is better fixed to do all kinds of work in his line.
LOCAL NEWSEggs have been retailing at Seattle for 10 cents a dozen. SCHLOTFELDT Brothers new packing house is about completed. TJOSSEM and son Albert are about to establish a creamery at their place four miles below town. Harry ACKLEY and Bert LAMBSON were taken last week by Sheriff STINSON to the state reform school. Mrs. CODY's whereabouts is not known. Her anxious husband offers a reward of $100 for her discovery. Many of the farmers of this county pay four and five cents a pound for beans instead of raising enough for
home consumption. The city is having a good job done on the flume between J. RAMSEY & Co.'s store and BECKER's blacksmith
shop. It was a much needed improvement. Mr. VINTON is agent for the Chicago aluminum manufactured goods. Jay COOKE, son of Hon. C. P. COOKE, and Miss Allie J. HILL were married at the Methodist parsonage on
Monday the 17th inst. Rev. WARNER officiating. The feed for stock in Kittitas Valley has been nearly all consumed and shipped off. By the time spring

joined in the holy bonds of matrimony, on the 18th. GERBERG, the tailor, was out again on Saturday after a tussel with la grippe some three weeks. Mrs. GERBERG
is now suffering from a like affliction and is very sick. We direct especial attention to Mr. MAXEY's notice in this issue. He is the horticultural commissioner and
should be consulted as to trimming and spraying fruit trees. Died, after a brief illness, John QUINLAN, on Thursday morning about midnight. The deceased had been
working on James WATSON's ranch and was only sick a day. Mr. VINTON informs us that the Tip Top mine in Peshastin in developing some very rich ore. This will place
the owners, SHOUDY, VINTON & Co. in circumstances. Hope it will. The month of February is over half out and more than two-thirds of the winter is passed, and no severe
weather has occurred. A frolicsome individual, with a goodly supply of paralyze aboard, was gathered in by the marshal Saturday
night and stowed away in the cold storage to await the judgment of his honor Monday morning. The persons who carried off the water pipe and oven and other things from the LAMBSON place in South
Ellensburg had better return them and save themselves trouble and costs. If they are returned there will
nothing further done. Next Saturday evening, the 29th, the second of the series of lectures now being delivered at the M. E.
Church will be delivered by Prof. P. A. GETZ. Subject: "Ethics in Education"... Single lecture, 25 cents. A farmer should buy nothing that he can raise to advantage at home. We import too many articles that
can be raised at home. Hams, bacon, lard and eggs are among the articles... The masquerade ball given by Co. A, N. G. W., at the armory on Friday evening the 14th inst., was a
decided success. Some of the costumes worn were rich and elaborate, while others were very striking in the
originality of the character represented. The prize for the best sustained gentleman character was carried
off by John ROSS, as an Indian... The prize for the best sustained lady character was captured by Chas. BULGER,
as a ... lady cake walker. Joe SHULL was the lucky contestant for the best gentleman waltzer, and
Miss May SUTHERLAND won the lady's prize. The judges in the award of the prizes were Messrs. E. G. DIXON,
Joe MILLS, Al HALL, Mrs. Hattie ALSIP, and Miss Daisy COBART.

CLE ELUM COAL DUSTMr. H. E. STAFFORD has, with his family, moved to Spokane. It is understood that he leaves his partner,
Mr. F. M. COX, to hold the sack. Their store is now closed awaiting the pleasure of creditors. G. W. SEATON and Thos. JOHNSON made the county metropolis a flying visit this week, on business bent. Oscar JAMES, it is rumored, has sold his interest in the Cle Elum Coal Co's mine to his partners,
consideration not stated. A mining expert has just returned from Peshastin, wehre he has been to report on the Thos. JOHNSON
properties for intending purchasers. It is understood that these properties are showing up quite satisfactorily.... C. E. FREEMAN, who runs a store in Peshastin, and L. L. SEATON, our blacksmith, chartered a car and will
try their luck in the recently developed Nez Perce reservation. They were accompanied thither by A. BRIDGHAM. There is still about a foot and a half of snow here, but indications are that we will soon past company
with the beautiful.
FIRE AT TEANAWAYG. W. SEATON's fine large residence ... burned to the ground Thursday night of last week, nothing being
saved. Mrs. SEATON narrowly escaped with her life. Mr. SEATON was away at Cle-Elum at the time, and the
fire occurring at night, there was no chance of saving anything.... This blow falls heavily upon Mr. SEATON
and his family at this time, and would seem to be the last straw to break the camel's back, so to speak. We
understand there was a slight insurance which will in a small measure help to replace the loss, which is
estimated to be about $2500...
THORP CULLINGSThomas GORDON and Chas. BURLINGAME are on the sick list this week. Dick NEWMAN and family came up from Klickitat county Sunday. John WAGONER has purchased the ranch formerly owned by D. HAMMON. James DUNCAN has been "Paddy on the wheelbarrow" for the past few days. The saloon is still vacant. Geo. GREEN is a sound sleeper. Thorp will look terribly deserted when they all go to Trail Creek that are talking of going, but talk is
cheap even in Thorp. Frank MARTIN is making a tour of the Sound country in search of a place to start in business again. The grippe seems to have a hold on nearly every one here at the present time. John GOODWIN has been buying ice from the National Ice Co. of this place and storing it away near the
Cloverdale creamery. He thought it was his last chance. Messrs. GOODWIN and OSBORN shipped a carload of apples from here on Wednesday. Mr. BARNETT is erecting a new barn on his place north of here. Thorp will soon have a vacant house, the first in her history.
ROSLYN ITEMSThe long-looked for stamp mill to be put up on Fortune creek has arrived at last... It is reported on good authority that Oscar JAMES has sold his fourth interest in the Cle Elum Coal Co's
Mines for $6,000.00. The buyers are supposed to be agents of the O. R. & N. Co. who get most of their supply
in Roslyn. Cle Elum will undoubtedly have a boom in the near future.
