by the Literary society next Thursday evening. Don’t forget
to make yourself as tall as possible to help a good cause
The F.R.E.S.H.M.E.N. met with Miss Ruth Larson Tuesday of last
week. Four of the boys were present but the rest must have been
having class meeting outside. They probably were intending to go
but got "cold feet" when they reached the house. Next time you had
better go in, boys, as there will be election of officers. At one
of the meetings two of the boys had class meeting in the pine
trees. They’ll get over that. The freshmen have one sophomore
now and he makes two or three boys but they need

Wenatchee, Wash., Dec. 6, 1906, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Johnson,
Greenwood Wis., Dear Friends: I will try to write you a few lines
though I am too nervous to write but I won’t wait any longer.
We have all been sick with colds since we came here, the climate
and water don’t agree with me at all. I never saw it colder
in Wisconsin through the month of Nov. than it has been here. The
first three days of the month was awful dry and dusty, then it
began to rain and a little west of us they has great floods. It has
rained and snowed the most of the time since. The mountains has
been covered with snow all the time and some in the valley. This
morning it began to snow about 7 o’clock and at noon there is
8 inches and it is still coming. You can’t beat that in
Wenatchee is in a valley on the Columbia river, surrounded by
mountains. It is composed of sage brush, rocks, sand and rascals.
This town is on a boom and it has got more land sharks and boomers
than honest citizens. It costs about as much again to live here as
it does there. Rent is very high here, we pay $10 per month for a
small 4-room house and $1.50 a month for water. Pine wood costs $7
per cord, fir wood $7.50, hardwood isn’t to be had, coal is
$9.50 per ton. Eggs 40c a dozen, butter 35c a pound, kerosene 25c
per gallon, other things average about the same. On the west
between the city and the mountain the soil is pretty fair and not
much stones. There is where they raise their fruit. There is I
should judge between 2 and 3000 acres to fruit, apples, cherries
pears and peaches. But it is all raised by irrigation, can’t
grow beans without it. They don’t get any rain here in the
summer. Everything dries up and dies without irrigation. First
class fruit is higher here than it is there. The apples are all
sorted here and boxed. Apples that are bruised or worm holes in
them goes in the cull pile. Them you can buy for 25c to 50c a box.
The best No. 1 cost from 41 to $2 per box. They are shipped from
here by car loads. Besides they have several thousand bushels here
in cold storage for spring shipment. But they have not got as good
flavor as the eastern fruit. I never saw such large fruit as they
raise here, apples 17 inches in circumference, weighing 2 lbs. and
13 ozs. I have seen lots of apples here that I could not eat more
than one at a time.
Wages are $2.25 to $2.50 per day for common labor. Carl says he is
coming back. My wife wants to come back and we may start any time
for I don’t like it here a little bit. Land is cheap, as you
can see, from $300 to $1000 for one acre.
I will wait till morning and report the snow fall. Dec. 7 - well,
it quit snowing last evening with a fall of 10 inches for one day.

miles. They can’t go down any farther for the rapids and

homestead up the river and he said he was going to Alberta, Canada,

would start back right off but I hate to leave them for I
don’t think I would ever see them again. Let us hear from

Seven Cents a Bottle
There are cheap tar preparations put up under names similar to
Warner’s White Wine of Tar, that costs the dealers about
seven cents a bottle and sold for twenty-five cents. The old story,
you’ve heard it, "Something just as good." Don’t be
fooled, insist on having Warner’s White Wine of Tar, the Best
Cough Remedy on Earth.
