MANY FAMILIES -- BEGINNING OF SCHOOL CAUSES SHIFTING OF POPULATI01% The beg/nning of lhe school year has caused many people in and around Palouse to change residences, which goes to show the powerful tae- tor of the public school is in the eco- nomic affairs of the country. Re- cently lnany tnoves have bgell made ill Pahmse that would resemble a game of checkers. The shifts made in the population in the last few weeks has greatly changed the aspect of the bltsiness life of Palouse. And' wheu one inquires into matters he finds that either directly or indirectly the school is the cause of most of the moving. Recently School SUl)erintendent J. C. Lazen/)y sieved into Palous,~. and ~took ut) his resilience in file. Severs :l)roperty on Church street. R. W. Elder, principal of the south side sctmol, moved into the Gritman ' l)roperty. O. L.

He will occupy the I)roperty formerly known as the tIenwood prol)erty. Mr. Keeney now owns this property. Mrs. Anna Gregory of the Cove dis- tricl, has purchased R. J. Keeney's proDerty and is sieving her house° bohl effects into it. A. P. Steele is moving to Coeur d'Alene. C. W. Williams moved from near Moscow into the Frank Bettis 'house. R. M.

Cecil Miller has bought the Virgil I.(erns house and has moved in. Mr. Kerns has moved to Cheney, where he will attend school. Mrs. Kerlls will soon leave for their new home. Mrs. Lizzie Bicknell and daughter, 'tlertha. have moved to Seattle. IC Walker occupies the house va- cated by the Bicknells, and so it goes. If one should leave t,~ts community and return after an absence or five years he wouhl hardly know anyone here. The population of the present (lay is not a deep rooted population as was the ease in the days or our fathers, but we all live on and think the same !houghts our fathers thought and aspire to about the same things our fathers aspired to.
