winter I left the v sunny clime of old Collin county Tex with my family started out for the land of the buffalo and the setting sun and ever since then we have been in dog wood winter However we like the climate as cold weather in the good old summer time is a change that is much appreciated As we look out to the north i plain view is Old Baldy about 30 miles away still wearing a mantle of snow we see the pines that cluster upon the hill sides and in a greater distance a sea of many snow capped mountains so calm and beautiful That row of green trees mark the course of the little Spokane the chosen river of many fishermen angling for the speckled beauties that inhabit her waters and at this season so ready to catch the Sal man flies as they dangle from the line concealing the bearded hook and many are the fish stories coming from that quarter any of which would go as good ones in Columbia none of them will I attempt to relate here but will try to give the readers of the News some information about this country This territory of eastern Wash ington is known as the Inland Empire comprising about 200 000 square miles bounded on the Albertta Canada on the West by the Cas cade Mountains on the South by the Blue Mountains in Northeastern Oregon and Central Idaho and on the East by the Bitter Root Mountains This Empire is divided into four distinct localities north south east and west That country to th north is adapted mainly to stoc raising and lumbering though some farming the products of which are alfalfa timothy clover wheat oats fruit and vege tables and a little mining gold silver lead and copper Is gen erally known as the ranch lands The country west is adapted the growing of wheat oats barI ley and potatoes mainly though near the Columbia river is good fruit land where winter apples pears prunes and cherries are grown rather extensively and O f good quality This country isl known as the Big Bend on ac count of being located in the bend of the Columbia river The country south is adapted to the growing of all kinds of small grain and corn some times yield 30 to 50 bushel per acre alfalfa clover timothy potatoes apples allJhardy vegetables and small her ries the productions claimed for many of the above I willnot quote as they appear incredible Iiand I dont care to have my vera city questioned among my old friends and acquaintances In all of the above divisions the value of land varies according tp quality distance from transpor tation and improvements Some small tracts well improved andt set to fruit of commercial iety and In good bearing have sold for 2000 per acre but of 1 course that is an exception while r many others quite well improved have sold for 400 To 600 per acre and I believe is about an average fr bearing orchards j according to the amount of iafepr required to cultivate and handle tlhe crop and the income torn i some is a verlbw prices vjTl rwat1d for fruit r t 1r wit J7 t s or other purposes range in prices from 5 to 12 per acre until it becomes inflated with hot air immediately after the price scores to 200or300 this back east would be considered watered but here it is just simply hot air of which this country is rich ly blessed The improved grain land ranges from 25 to 60 per acre according to quality and improvements and produces good returns on the money invested and especially for a home as then season for harvesting the hay and grain crop is any time from July until cold weather Of course the hay must be harvest ed in its season and not allowed to get too ripe but the grain will stand until the snow comes to break down the stalk and will not hurt much Threshing is often not finished until cold weather and some times not until the next spring For this reason the farmer does not need to hire much labor for the saverg of his crop and two men are usually expected to handle from 500 to 600 acres of land except during harvest when they will need shockers unless the header is used Many of the farmers own their own threshing machines either the old fashion kind as they call the ones you use there or a header The yield of this land it from 20 to 60 bushel of wheat from 40 to 75 bushel of oats and barley a little better than 75 bushel per acre This yeild of course is goverened by the quality of land and manner in which it is cultivated The lbest results are obtained by sum mer following and let the land rest one year or cultivate in corn potatoes or plant peas as corn is not a paying crop and 300 to 350 acres of potatoes is rather a expensivekevery other year This locality is known as the Palouse and derived its name from a tribe of Indians that inhabited the coup tryThe eastern division is the mining district known as the IiHCoer DAlene where fabulous wealth is stored away in mother earth and being taken out at a eminenceifortunes are obtained by men in a few years many of whom and in fact most of them were poor not even able to provide the nec essaries of life without their daily wages yet very few of these were the real prospector as he as a rule is a kind of an individual who could not wait on a prospect to develop into a mine but would as soon as he found something that looked good to some one else sell out for what he could get blow in the proceeds and go on thehike again The products of this division are copper lead silver and a little gold The

Both my places have had a vis itation of mumps measles and smallpox Thirty years ago nearly every body feared the latter as a loath someandmalignant scourge but now it seldom kills any body Five of my pupils had it last Winter one wearing the erup tions on his face that precede the contagious stage in school build ing Ins mumps and measles the period of fever is the contagious stage while in smallpox the drying up time is when the dan ger of infection occurs As I have been vaccinated three times I guess Iam immune at least I from smallpox North Carolina has just passed through very exciting prohibition campaign in which the forces of temperance achieved a Victory of over 40000 majority Three precincts in Cleveland county went unanimously dry and the county gave nearly 2000 majority Seventeen of the 96 counties went wet and part of them in hitherto dry territory Raleighthe Capital was storm center of prohibition activity be ing headquarters for temperance campaign But Wake county went against prohibition The News and Observer of Raleigh As an avowed prohibition organ IOn the other hand the Charlotte Observer believes in taking just a little wine for the stomachs sake and its often infirmities Muhlenburg county went dry by over 1800 majority = The whisky forces made Salisbury their citadel It had bars andwas headquarters for advo cates of whisky manufacture and sale But Cabanus county went dry I made two temperance a speeches in Rutherford county As no body heard them but the people of Cliffside prohibition carried by 1100 majority I voted for prohibition and have been for some time a total abstainer But I heard some very intemperate speeches made by alleged prohibitionists As for politics people realized that it was not a political question and parties divided Two very able lawyers in the Democratic whilejvGovernor R B Glenn was its most eloquent and zealous aposf w tie On the other handJ udget Tic Jeter Pritchard of the Federal E Court anda Republican was t ableIchampion ExJudge Robison iv an able Republican did great IE good for the cause while Judge Settle of same party was for the manufacture and sale of whisky Some

dida feat of arms that ranks fa vorably with Roosevelts Rough Riders at San Juan Hill He about vanquished Mexico During the Mexican war Some very refined Greasers cam into camp to sell rat and dog pies Uncle Oliver was a soldier an had a great weakness for pies such as his mother used to make These pies showed up well on the surface but within were full of dead dogs bones and other un cleanless Oliver informed the venders in rather vigorous English that they were liars and thieves but like Bret Hartes heathen Chinee they did not understand The Greasers expostulated in very profane Spanis- that Oliver must pay for the pies he had examined but he did not understand The next day a rec onoitering party saw a commotion and made haste to investigate Oliver was fighting about forty and had knocked down and disabled twentyfive He was using his fist and every jolt downed a Greaser But he was badly winded when rescured by his friends No doubt his fame is still extant in the land of the Montezumas as tall Gringro who had a reach like a giraff and a stroke like a pile driver Uncle Baxton Long of Ruther ford county N C and who is still living had a similar experience later in Cuba He was a 49er who struck pay dirt in Calf ifornia About 1852 he went to Cuba and the island rose against him in revolt He knock ed out something above 25 with his fists and then made the field reeking slaughter pen with the jawbone of a broken wheel bar row Later he was a volunteer in the Confederate service Con trary to the general and oftquot edrule he was a fist fighter who would not flinch on the firing line While with the advance skirmishers he was struck squarely in the eyejby a minnie ball which came out at base of skull When the stretcher corps came around the first time they said Poor
