RETURNEDAs will be observed in our advertising columns, Mr. BLUMAUER of Ellensburg, has returned from San Francisco. The
gentleman at that place laid in one of the finest and largest stocks of merchandise ever brought to the county. What
is better, he offers them at prices which defy competition. We cordially commend him to the patronage of the public.
THANKSTheo. HESS, the well-known brewer of Ellensburg on Tuesday last agreeably surprised us by walking into our office
staggering under the weight of a keg of beer. He placed it on the floor and said, "There, Chadd, is some good beer for you."
It was a hot day and we sampled it instanter, and found out that HESS told the truth -- it was good beer. We shall keep
Theo ever in kind remembrance for his welcome present.
PASSEDThe large boiler intended for the saw mill of Thos. JOHNSON which mill is to be located about 35 miles above Ellensburg,
passed through town on Tuesday. Several other teams laden with merchandise consigned to different merchants at Ellensburg
have also passed on up. As showing the growing importance of the freighting interests of Kittitas Valley alone, we are sure
we are placing it at reasonable figures when it is stated there has not been less than one hundred and fifty tons of
supplies taken to that locality within the last month, and immense stores are now at the Dalles still waiting transportation.
