Centralia Chronicle (Newspaper) - April 10, 1890, Centralia, WashingtonVol.1. Lewis county Washington thursday april no. 41 a mutters municipal the Prospect that a new City Council will soon be elected Calls the Public Tention to Iov Cral matters of the highest importance to the City s welfare. Tho personality of the men who Are to form the City government is an important concern but their attitude on a few of the coming municipal questions is much More vital than the personal excellence of character and popularity of the candidates. As the election occurs so far As time is concerned on the Divide or water shed Between the Rainy and dry seasons that fact ought to emphasize the need of in adequate water Supply during the coming season. It will not do to allow this summer to pass without supplying fire Protection and pure water for the City. Probably the Only Way so secure these is to elect a Council pledged to the erection of some certain system of water works. If fire Protection is not provided nothing is More certain than that most of the responsible fire insurance companies will withdraw from Centralia notwithstanding the ruinous rates of insurance now charged. The rapid increase of Cerit Ralia a population made the question of drinking water an important one also. In some quarters of the City Well i May still safely be depended on but in thickly settled portions they can not Long suffice. Because the health of the City has so far been exceptionally Good we can not assume that it will be always so. Before Street care or electric lights the first absolute necessity is adequate fire Protection. As act Luclie. London Hospital chemically the Apple is composed of vegetable Fibre albumen sugar gum chlorophyll malic acid Gillic Scio Lime and much water. Furthermore the German analysts Hay that Theap Piccon to Iii a larger per can tags of phosphorus than other fruit or vegetable. T pop Phoua is admirably adapted for renewing essential nervous matter let Lundn of the brain and spinal chord. It id perhaps for the same reason rudely that old scandinavian traditions represent the Apple As the food of the god who when they Felt them selves growing feeble and re sorted to Liia fruit for renewing their Powers of mind and body. Also the acid of the Apple Are of signal for men of sedentary habits whore liven arc sluggish in action those acids serv ing to eliminate from the body noxious matters which if retained would make the brain heavy and or bring Sib out jaundice or skin eruptions other Allied Koine such an experience must have led to our custom of taking Apple Fiance with roast pork Rich Goose and like dishes. The malic acid of Ripe apples either raw or neutralize any excess of Chalky matter engendered by eating too much meat. It is Leo the fact that such fresh fruits As the Apple the War Ami the Pirn when taken Ripe and without sugar diminish acidity in the stomach rather than provoke it. Their vegetable Falls and juices Are converted into alkaline carbonates which tend to counteract acidity. A Good Ripe raw is one of the easiest of vegetable substances for the Ionia cd to Deal with the whole Prochet s of he digestion being completed eighty five minutes. Cief Rard found thai the pulp of roasted apples mixed in a wino quart of Faire water Ami Laboured together until it conies to be As apples and ale which we Call Lam bos Wool never fail ctr in certain diseases of the mines which myself hath often proved and gained thereby both crowns and the paring of an Apple Cut Doniv Wiwat and the inside thereof in Laid to hot burning or run. Ning eyes at night when the party goes to bed and is tied or bound to the same doth help the trouble very speedily and thoroughly As the word t who do not give an hour s work to the Garden. They May Plant a few potatoes and possibly set out a few cabbage plants but that is As far As they go. If the wife can leave her already too numerous cares Long enough to scratch a plot of ground of the sowing of a few lettuce and radish seeds very Well but if she can t get out to do it there will be no seeds sown in that Garden. The idea the shame of it the Garden work de pending on the wife s frail Arm a i no this is not fiction. It in Clear reality and can be attested to by Many. Certainly any reasonable Man under stands that vegetables contain material for building up and otherwise Benefit ing the human system. Many of them great value. All Are calculated to promote Good health. Indeed the free Hob of fresh vegetables As Well As fruit cheat the doctors out of Many Feea. Then knowing this Why does not every Farmer see toil thai his farm has a Garden that will Supply his family with plenty of fresh vegetables Well Basing my opinion on observation and expressed sentiment most men despise to work in the and then it appears to them that the time spent in the Garden is Juat to time needed in the Field. The Field you know shows off to better advantage. It be that for there Are but few men who do not enjoy vege tables. Then Why deprive themselves and families of the pleasure that a Day s work will obtain the Garden need not All be made the same Day the work May be carried on at different times a few hours at a Lime. After the Oats Are sown is a Good time to see to the Garden. But it is not too Early to do your plan Ning now. Vegetable seeds Are to be had very cheap in collections. The seed Are pent out by reliable firms in quantities sufficient to Supply an Ordinary family with vegetables All summer and Winter. So Many banners there Are who never think of growing celery. They look up on it As one of the luxuries to be obtained Only at the Market place. How they err. Celery is As easily grown As potatoes. The work is not really go hard in reality As writers on the subject would have is believe. With the abandonment of the old trenching system t to most of the labor attending celery culture has disappeared. One thing should be remembered that in never to handle celery plants while they Are wet. Vegetable Oyster too is so delicious and of such easy culture that it should to More generally cultivated. If you Reader Are me who thinks his time too precious to be put in on Hie Garden do just for once pet aside your ideas and resolve for the Good of your growing Girla and boys to have a Garden Tine year. You will need but one trial to convince you that n Good Kitchen Garden it one of the t paying investments on Ami not time Loat. The whole far to tick Urro Tilto n Bear Story. Who grass there and the Pony made up his mind it was time to 150 into Camp so he kept Pullon Back on the aria till i gave in and unpacked him. He started to Graze and i shouldered my Rifle and wandered off Down toward the Ake thinking i might get a shot at a gooey or or gybe Adeer that would furnish neat for supper and breakfast. My Rifle was a single shot breach loading Sharp and a mighty Good i trotted along she Trail among the fifa at the Edge of the Lake Netchin the water pretty careful when suddenly 1 Icard an ugh ugh right in front of me and there in the Trail not thirty feet away was As big a Roach Back Bear As i a reread. He was Sittin up wih his front paws Hangyiu Down and his red Tongue stained with Sarvice berries a Runnin out in a most Way. I watched him for a breath or two and had almost made up my mind that i bad t lost any Bear and was t for any. But he set so still i could t reset the temptation. So i hauled up the old Rifle an took a steady pull on his neck expecting to break his spinal column. Well general just As i pulled the trigger he moved and 1 knew i had missed him. The Way i broke for a big fir tree was t slow i Tell you. I dropped the gun As i grabbed the tree and was t any too soon for he came with a Rush and snaked the Heel off my Boot in no time As i swung myself into i got up out of his Way and watched him while he howled and Tore the bark off the tree. I saw then that the Bullet had just scratched the Rifkin on one bide of his neck. He would rub it with his Paw then jump for the tree and Bellow while he Tore off the bark in chunks. Then he d go the other Side of the tree and repeat the performance. Presently he saw my Rifle. He picked it up and looked it All Over. Then he fixed his Beady Little eyes on me and seemed Gnu dying something then he cocked the Gim threw it to Hie shoulder and took Good aim Atonic before he pulled the Trig Ger. Of course the gun snapped As the same was in it that i had just fired at him. He pulled the gun Down again looked it All Over then threw Down the lever and Breech Block.
