MENATTEND RANGE SALES: MEETING Monday night a Westinghouse sales meeting was held in the Peer- less Hotel at Oroville. The meeting was for employees "of the Washing- ton Water Power company of this dfstriet and was the opening gun in the We.aging'house electric range sales ca.mpaign. The difinei" was followed by talks by various officials. The fol- lowing attended from Brewster: R. A. Downing, district manager, M. J. Attridge, H. M. Ml]lberry, C. C. Gil- lespie, C. R. Giden, George Thayer, Ben Buob. Officials presen.t' were H. L. Bur: gion, Westinghouse Supply Corpora-i glen, Spokane; R. B. McElroy ass't.i sales manager, W.W.

From appearauees they must have been prisoners who had been sprayed with oil and then set on fire. It did not appear as though there had been sufi'icient buildings on the spot to have burned the surface of each body, as it appeared. One prisoner had been crucified and burned at the cross. Sensationalism For one thing, newspaper reports here are hardly dependable. The Chi- nese public will buy anything to read if it is sensational enough. The new papers must print things tlat the Chi- i nese want to red, so they compete with each other to tell the biggest lies of Chinese vietories, etc. I am now with the Texaco Oil Co. and have not been doing a thing" but :going hither and thither and being :introduced to the customers. It sut seemed funny when I met them the first time. They first offer you a cig'artte which you smoke for an appropriate time and then throw away. While this is going on a coolie comes in with a cup of tea, quite weak and with no suggar in it. In about 10 seconds another coolie comes in with a piping hot, steaming towel in fact he had three of them. As luck would have it I was first on the list and when he handed one to me I did not know what to do with itwhether to put it in my pocket or in the tea. i stalled around long enough until the other two received towels and I saw they were for wip- ing the hands. We talked about ev- erything but business for 12 minute: and then fox' 3 minutes on business. During that time another cooli brought in a whole pot of tea and the same coolie that brought the tow- els had made three apparently light- ning trips to the hot water and in came more towels. If had stayed there for an hour nay hands would have been blistered or the skin worn off through wiping nay hands.

STILL MINING IN INLAND EMPIRE A ramm-y of the mtnin.g camps of the Inland Empire shows that several will be the centers of unusual inter- eat this summer, particularly three gold camps and one zinc-lead camp. Gold mining is unusually attractive when the prices in most of the indus- trial metals axe low. Ceutral daho, in both placer and lode, promises much for the coming year for the dual reason that gold is restively worth more than for .many years, and those mining d|striets are now accessible because of highway construction. Western Montana is another gold district attracting' many mining aen front the northwest The Sheep Creek old distrivt just across the norther boundary of Washington, is the most aetlve region in the Kootenays, while the old Re- public camp in Washington and-the Murray disriet in the Coeur d' AI-. enos are both producing old.
