He became weaker Up ¢o date the number of bushels of this year's crop of wheat that has been sold in P:'louse amounts to 18,. [600 bushels and the wheat received at the warehouses amounts to 170.000 bushels in round numbers. The Far- mers Union has received 130.000 bushels and the A. J. Webster Co. has doubtless received 40.000 bush- els. This is only e beginning com- pared with the quantity of grain yet to come in. as those who have sacked grain have hardly started to deliver to the warehouses. Most of the grain coming in so far has been in bulk grain, which is delivered from the machine as it is threshed. The two firms here have bought close to 20.000 bushels of grain. The price averages close to 90 cents on a basis of~No. 1 wheat. H. R. Heckner of the Farmers Union predicted earlier in the season that the buying would begin this year with prices around 85 cents per bushel. The present prices seem to justify his forecast as to the probable price of wheat. The A. J. Webster company oper- ates a string of warehouses up the river, and although the company has received considerable grain their sea- son bas not really started. The sacked grain will come In mostly after the threshing season is over. Both firms state that wheat is grading well. with a small percentage of dockage for smut. Grandpa Blvton Writes Letter.

Wllllamson. These gentleman were formerly In business at Mo~ow, N. Wllllamson being the head of the firm. James Williamson was azso- ciated with him in business for sev- eral years, but was called to the de- fense of his country during the late war. Since the war he has been at Twin Fails, Idaho. Thinking that merchandise could he sold for less money than it is now ~old for, he and his Uncle, N. Wil- liamson begun to look around for place to locate, and hearing of Mr. Miller's desire to retire selected Pa- louse as the best place in which to go into business. N• Wllliamson needs no introduc- tion to the people of Palouse, having at one time been in the mercantile business here. He is now devoting his time to the rearing of fine stock and has large agricuRural holdings around Palouse and his name is fa- miliar to every fancy stockman in the Inland Empire. "After I get my nephew started here I shall have nothing to do with the management of the store," said Mr, Williamson. "I shall come In and make my purchases the same as any other customer, and if Jimmie asks me too much for a shirt I shall pur- chase it elsewhere, The store will be run" on a strictly cash basis. We fig- 3ire that we have merchandise to sell and the bank has money to sell. It is not our purpose to sell money, but merchandise. The terms will be cash to the president of the bank the same as the poorest customer. By follow- ing this policy we shall be able to sell goods more cheaply and we will ren- der a service to the community by doing so." The younger Mr. Willtamson knows the mercantile business from A to Z. as he has been brought up lxt it under the direction of N. Wllllameon. Mr, Miller leaves active business 'life with the respect of his customers, ! who wish him all the |oy that comes ' from the fruits of a life of toil.
