K. of P. business. J. W. HOGAN went to Tacoma Wednesday on business, returning today. He is preparing to open up one of the largest stocks of goods ever
brought into Ellensburgh. FLYNN, the tonsorial artist, defies competition in his line. He can supply every want from any kind of bath to the latest in hair
dressing. The deep snow has been extremely hard on the range stock this winter. Ben E. SNIPES estimates his loss at fully three-fourths of the
band on the range. He is feeding but 250 head of cattle. Frank McCANDLESS returned Friday morning from an extended trip to California where he has been enjoying a much needed vacation... Snow is reported to be 18 feet deep on the eastern slopes of the Cascades. This vast watershed is a never failing reservoir for our
supply of water... Three little tramp boys arrived Wednesday night from the east, apparently from 10 to 12 years of age. One hails from Helena, another
from Spokane, and one topsy-like, from nowhere. They are well-dressed and bright appearing little fellows. They bum their way by singing
in the saloons and on street corners. Yesterday deputy sheriff BANKS telegraphed their parents for instructions. They will undoubtedly be
sent home. Miss Nettie EVANS, wife of the late D. I. EVANS, has received a check from the New York Life insurance company for $2500, acknowledgement
of which was made to the local agent H. H. WILKINS, this week at the time of paying the policy held by Mr. EVANS, the body had not been
found, and out of about $12,000 insurance it is the only policy settled...

A PLEASANT TRIBUTE

The social event of the week was the fancy dress party given on the evening of St. Valentine's day by Mr. and Mrs. H. W. THEISEN at their
residence on Walnut street in honor of Mr. A. N. TOBLE, an attache of the national bank of which Mr. THEILSEN is cashier. Principal among the features of the evening's entertainment were a Valentine postoffice, the game of progressive hearts and the "lost
peanuts".... Two prizes each for ladies and gentlemen were offered, one of the greatest number found and one for the least. The first prize
for the ladies, a gilded peanut necklace, was awarded to Miss PROWELL; the "booby" prize, a gilded onion to Miss Maude PAINTER. Those of
the gentlemen were awarded, first to C. D. WOODWORTH a japanese peanut doll, the booby going to Mr. GRAVES who took the golden carrot. Following these enjoyable diversions, refreshments were announced and the evening's festivities concluded with dancing. The company was
made up of young people in the circle of Mr. TOBLE's friends, the fortunate ones being: Mr. and Mrs. Rodney PALMER, Mr. and Mrs. H. K. OWENS,
the Misses CARSON, FLYNN, BOYDSTON, Mande and Genie PAINTER, MARQUISS, PROWELL, STAYMAN and Kate BATTERSON, Messrs. C. D. WOODWORTH,
