This hears out lhe policy announced

lie was si-ekinK a riglii of way through

Spokane is to be the point nf confluence for a nunilier of Ihese delta lines.

Hill's large expenditure for hig depots

It would be difficult to overestimate

another branch into ilu- Okanogan dislrict. And there is lemon to believe

There Is Utile doubt that lhe.se grenl

Hill isslnvv to reach important conclusions. Hut once the resolution s'-i'/.es,

N'o new knowledge is imparted when
it is stated thul lbe moose is the largest

Uie adult male may be given as 7tXl
pounds, although they nttnin lo twice
that weight. These animals are characterized b) a short body, a very short
tail and neck, untl 11 prodigiously l.inir,
uglv bead with a projecting nose nr
upper lip, whicli gives tbem a revolting
look, Tbey have enormous ears, short,
spreading, palmated antlers (011 the
males only) and very long legs —to
which ihey are indebted for their great

The lltnimer COIlt of lbe inoose is of
