Hanley, the Northern Pacific con- ductor who was killed near Chehalis this morning, was well known In Ho- qulam where he worked for some time. He made a great deal of money by rear estate dealings and contracts.

Somebody had whistled to the animal who responded by run- ning across the street in front of the car. He was struck and the wheels passed over his hind legs. With an almost human cry the wretched animal made a painful at- tempt to crawl off, while other dogs gathered around with dolorous walls of sympathy. A bystander humane-j ly killed the suffering animal. 10 SELL OUT, BUT 10 TO? Centralia Jan. 3. Persistent rumors that rise above the denials of officials, point to a change of ownership In the Twin City Light Traction Company within a short time. Although nothing definite can be said in detail now, it Is known that Eastern capital has something to do with the change that hovers In the air, and the matter will doubtless be settled In a few days, If It has not already been fixed In a quiet way. Do yon realize that there are just four more days before the special offer, now going on in the Chronicle'! ?3000 contest, will be a thing of the past? Are you going to take advant- age of every hour of that four and make each one of them do its share toward helping you win a prize on Feb. 4th? Every hour lost means that many votes that yon might have had. When Opportunity knocks at your door as it is now do- ing, are you going to close that door In her face? it. la the first place it Is not polite and in the second there isn't one of you who can afford to. THE OPPORTUNITY OP A LIFE TIME How many times during your life, Miss Candidate, will someone give you a chance as good as the one now staring you in the face and beckoning to you? How many times will some- one offer you a piano, a scholarship, a ring or a watch as an absolute gift, which the Chronicle is now doing? acquaintances yon- need their help and that need the Chroni- cle, which you know every one is Centralia and surrounding country does, because it prints all the news both foreign and local of the most interest to the people in this section. FOUR CONTESTS IN The Chronicle contest has prac- tically reached the point where it has dissolved itself Into four sepa- rate contests. It is easy to see the wherefore of this statement. The Chronicle has offered four prizes for each district, to be contested for la each district alone. A manager has been appointed for each district who will look after the interests of the candidates in that district They will call upon every candidate and do their best towards keeping them up in the race and attaining the ulti- mate goal.
