Plenty Of Fireworks There were plenty of fireworks here Monday morning, July 4, when the John Gegner and N. Roland resi- dences were destroyed by 'ire. The Gegner house broke into a blaze at about 4 a. m. The family had left for the Methow shortly before and had had a small fire in the heating stove. The word was quickly spread and volunteer fireznen put the blaze out, [ though not until the roof, interior l and half the walls had burned. Very i little was saved. Just as the firemen had gotten'the blaze under control, the Roland house! on third street burst into ,flames. More hose was laid and tkis second fire was controlled more quickly, al- though the interior and contents were badly burned. The Roland family was also away 'on a camping trip. No reason has been assigned for the cause of either blaze. The 1o in each case is partially covered by insurance. ALL SET FOR CHURCH PICNIC AT CHELAN feet July 6, many persons here have had to go back to the post office and add an extra cent to their outgoing mail, according to Lillian M. Tyler, postmaster here. There is a new three cent stamp this year. It is of the George Wash- ington issue and bears a portrait of Waslfington. It is lavender in color.

Among a list of color- ful names also should be included, perhaps, Blue Pool, Rainbow, Silver, Diamond, Gold, Pearl, Olive, Black and Copper, Campers of a romantic turn of mind will perhaps prefer such camps as Enchanted Valley, Camp Mystery, Honeymoon Camp and finally Home Sweet Home. Others, no doubt, will be attracted to Whiskey Creek, Moon- shine Flats, Jug Creek, Humbug Dev- ils Garden and Seven Devils. For lovers of the classics there are camps named Robin Hood, Sherwood, Yew Wood, Limberlost, Corrigenda, Interrorem and Monte Cristo. These forest camps are established by the forest service as a part of the development of the recreational re- sources of the national forests. There are just a few simple conveniences and no charge is made for their use. HAVE BAND STAND SOONf i Will Be Located in The Brewster Civic Park m the lake at three o clock a swim .

KEI.LER INDIAN Thomas Disautel Is Badly Beaten In Drunken Brawl KILLED IN FIGHTt t'n The construction of the bandstand s being sponsored by the Brewster i Commereial Club, the Civic League, i !the Junior Band and various individ- ual. Roy Plemons is in charge of construction. Ernest Keogen, Keller Indian is dead and Thomas Disautel is sufer- tng from various wounds and bruises following a drunken brawl at Keller, Monday July 4th. Koegen, apparent- ly, was killed by a blow on the head from an iron bar or ri.fle barrel. The fight occurred at a celebration being staged by Keller Indians. Harry Sorimpt is under arrest, on information of eye witnesses, and is " in the Ferry county jail at Republic. ber of cars of apples that will actual- ly be moved, since thousands of box- es of fruit consist of varieties it will not pay to pick, other thousands will turn out to be culls, and there is" the ;possibility this year that C grades will be eliminated, cutting another 10 per cent off this district's shipments. SO0 Cars "Off Varieties" Last year 549 ears of the so-called "off-varieties" were shipped from this district and probably an equal num- ber are included in this year's esti- mate. If marketing conditions contin- ue as they have been for the past sev- eral months there is little likelihood that these varieties will be shipped. Clemens' estimate for the entire :district this year is 4,367 as against an estimate of 4,030 last year. Final i shipment figures show that only 3,- 611 cars were shipped last year, com- i pared to 3,968 shipped the year be- fore. Taking into consideration all i the limiting factors mentioned above it is unlikely if this year's actual :shipments will total those of last year. Oroville shipped 213 cars last year and its total crop this year is estimat- ed at 435. Tonasket shipped 301 and its estimate is 375; Omak shipped 922 and is estimated at 941; Okan- ogan shipped 508 and the estimate for this year is 565; Malott shipped 334 and is estimated to have a crop of 471; Brewster's shipments totaled 500 cars antl its estimate is 620,; ,Pa- teros shipped 833 anti its estimate is 960. The estimate for the entire North Central Washington district is 21,- 762 cars of apples. It is pointed out that tile average cullage in the dist- rict would cut this total to 18,000 cars if there were no other limiting factors. Estimates for this district on other fruits are: pears 87 cars; cherries 26 cars; apricots 19Vz cars; plum,s and prunes 15 cars; peaches 4 cars. J. HENRY SMITH DIES IN SEATTLE J. Hem'y Smith, 75, former Brew- ster resident, Okanogan attorney and judge passed away in Seattle, Thur.s- day morning, July 7. Heart trouble is given as the cause of death. News of his death was given here by a son Roy W. Smith of Okanogan who sk'as on his way to Seattle by car. James IIenry Smith was a resident of Brewster many years ago and' was active in Grange. circles, lie moved to Okanogan where he practiced law for several years and was appointed Judge of the Superior Court to serve for its own and the public good and that the govqrnment keep out of business insofar as economically pos- sible. Takes Property From Tax Rolls "Do you realize that in this state sonrewhere between 25 .and 35 per cent of the property is not on thd tax rolls " asked Mr. Hedges discus- sing "the goverlmmnt in business." "Do you realize that each and every one of us is paying a half lnore taxes than we would be paying if all of this property were on the tax rolls? I : " e Every t}me th governm(mt goes into I business, whether city, state or na-] tion, it is taking just one more step] toward the Russian situation. Do you  realize that day labor work done by the city, state or government is just one more step in this iniquitous pro- gram.? "We have been advocating reason- able reduction in taxation for the reason that this nation will g'o bank- rupt if tixation is increased as it has been in tile past. And it goes without saying that if work is done through- out this country by the old hand method the taxpayer will suffer. This is a machine age, and, if we expect to progress and prosper, it will contin- ue to be, and we will not revert to the more primitive" and expensive method." SCHWELLENBACH SPEAKS HERE TUES. Tuesday afternoon, Louis B. Schwellenbach, candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor, adiressed a small group of Brewster citizens on the Hotel lawn. M r Schwellenbach is a resident of Seattle and is a past state e0mmand- er of the American Lgion. His sub- jet Was "Taxatio;h" and methods of lowel:ing local and state taxes" Accompany'ing him were Dr. and Mrs. L. S. Eastnmn, who are his cam- paign managers for this district.

Harter states that the harvest season will be g'en- erally normal throughout the state, but with wheat being better ttmn normal.

Prospects of a no}nal fruit crop e- rr the state are now excellent, Hat- ter declared. 35,608 Cars Apples Harter's fruit and vegetable esti- mates on the bases of the number of car loads were: Apples 35608 cars; pears 4771 cars; peaches 1428 cars; cherries 773 cars; apricots 333 cars; A committee has been appointed to  plums and prunes 874 cars, raspber- select a heir and s c '"  " I ":: .....

Robinson had gone out in a small boat to clear away a log that had I caug'ht at the edge of the dam. In[ some manner the log struck the boat amt the rope was jerked ,from the hands of assistants on the bank. The boat, carrying Robinson, plunged over the dam.
