In regard to the Gray's harbor trap
cutting business, it is learned that
sixteen indictments for arrest have
been issued and eleven men locked
up. One man was shot in the mouth,
the ball passing out at the back of
the neck; he will probably recover
and be arrested as soon as he is able
to be about. The other four will
soon be arrested. Chehalis county is
determined to prosecute to the full
extent of the law. Nearly all the
trappers whose nets were cut belong
here, are married and good, upright

Importance of Making Collections
The chiefest part of success in bus
iness lies in the collection of bills,
and while there are men who are
born collectors, as men are born ora
tors, writers, etc., yet a very few rules,
religiously observed, will, in my judg
ment, place the matter of collections
on a proper basis for any business.
First, have your bills out on time.
No matter what may interfere, if it is
your practice to collect monthly, have
your bills out and ready to distrib
ute the firsthand not the second or
third, but the first, and not only on
that date, but early In the morning.
Make your calls, do not be impor
tunate nor "hanging on," but walk
in, hand out your bill as a matter of
course, and as if as a matter of course
it would be promptly paid. Make no
apology, the bill is due, the goods de
livered or the work done, and
the amount due is justly and fairly
yours. If any of the items are dis
nnted and there is any reasonable
(doubt, make your memorandum and
bow yourselt out. -Lour iirac uusi
ness is to see that tho bill is right,
and having satisfied yourself of that,
return and make your explanations.
When a man says, "I will look it
up," ask when you shall call again,
and if he sets a day mark that down,
and be certain to be there on that
day. If Thursday, don't go Friday,
but Thursday. Be polite, and never
get angry. By being on time with
your bill, by calling on the day set,
by being mildly but firmly persistent,
tho question of collections becomes
one that can be readily handled, and
that is the main feature of a success
ful business. Stroller.
Give Them a Chance!
That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machinery. Very
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
the larger air-passages, but the thous
ands of litUe tubes and cavities lead
ing from the"n.
When these are clogged and choked
with matter which ought not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do then
work. And what they do, they can
not do well.
Call it cold, cough, cronp, pneu
monia, catarrh, consumption or any of
the family of throat and nose and head
and long obstructions, all are bad.
All ought to be got rid of. There is
just one sure way to get rid of them,
that is to take Boschee's German
Syrup, which any druggist will sell
you at 75 cents a bottle. Even if
everything else has failed you, you
may depend upon this for certain.
