I thought you would perhaps like a line from N. D. Weather bad, snow storm yesterday afternoon and night, which delayed threshing. Stock threshing nearly done; wheat crop light, runs from 6 to 15 bushels per acre; oats fairly good; and potatoes still to dig, big yield. A young man, following Mr. Johnson's threshing outfit, got up in the night and mistaking the hay shoot for the stairway, fell to the floor below among the horses and received serious injury. His face is quite badly cut by the hoofs of a horse. H. Van Houten, Willow City, ND

|letter to the editor|| ||A gentlemen requested that we publish the cause of the high cost of living. Our views in a condensed form are that we've let a lot of timber go to waste and now buy wire fences and lumber from foreign countries; we throw away our grease and ashes and buy soap; we buy too many dogs and raise to many hogs; we raise too many weeds and buy too many vegetables; we catch a 5 cent fish with a $4 road; we build a school house and send our children off to be educated; we send our boys out with a $40 gun and $10 dog to hunt 5 cent rabbits and 10 cent birds and, lastly, we mortgage our homes to buy high priced automobiles that we don't know how to operate and keep up. It is the cost of "high living" and not the high cost of living that ails this country.|

|weather|| ||One of the most terrific gales that has ever visited Alaska swept down upon the city of Nome onf October 6 and wiped out most of its buildings. Only one life, however, was reported lost. The gale came from the cold Bering sea and piled the high tidewaters deep in Nome's streets. Five hundred buildings were demolished and a district about two miles square devastated. It was estimated that many hundreds of people were left homeless. The winter's supply of food was practically destroyed by the fire that started during the height of the storm and the situation is serious for the inhabitants because the time for the close of navigation has arrived and haste must be made to get in a new stock of food. The loss resulting from the storm is estimated at $1,500,000. The residents of Nome appealed to Seattle for relief and last week thousands of dollars and building materials and foods were dispatched to the stricken city.|

This is the second time this summer that a bear has visited this city, and as there have been no circuses in town lately, it is evident that they have wandered in from the forests.|

|people|| Barraman, W. Al. || The Airedale |
Coming to Washington 17 years ago from Ohio, on a 60 days' leave of absence, I fooled the R. R. Company. I bought a round ticket and never went back. I landed at Port Crescent (Clallam County) then the wildest part of Washington being over 100 miles from any R. R. The forest was virgin and teeming with wild game of all kind. I was in my element, being found of the dog and the gun. I bought both with me and enough ammunition to stock an arsenal.
I had three guns, but I soon settled on the 30-30 as being the gun for all hunting here, the hill climbing being so strenuous, the lighter one is equipped the better. In the East a man found of dog and gun was called lazy, here it is different, as hunting is the hardest kind of work.
