According to officials of the Spokane Intl. branch of Union Pacific, Sandpoint had the dubious distinction Jan. 30 of having the greatest snow depth of any place on the S.I. line. The settled snow, compacted some by its own weight, measured 64 inches in Sandpoint on Feb. 5.

SCHOOLS REOPEN

Bonner County students went back to classes Tuesday (Feb. 3) as conditions improved to permit plowing out county roads. Superintendent Jack Jones requests that motorists refrain from using the rural roads at the times buses are known to pick up or let off children, as in most places the roads are not wide enough to permit a bus and a car or truck to pass one another.

Feb. 7, 1919 – WEDDING AT COLBURN

Last Wednesday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M.V. Nettlingham at Colburn, Miss Mabel Nettlingham was married to John Anton Selberg, a young man who made his home with the family for some years past, but lately was in his country’s service, in the spruce division. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Livingstone and witnessed only by members of the bride’s family. Mr. and Mrs. Selberg will continue to make their home on the Nettlingham ranch.

NEWS FROM COLBURN

We are glad to see the flu condition of our neighborhood improving so well. Most patients are able to be out again. Dr. Wendle was called to the Nettlingham home this week where there were several cases, none serious except little Roy who had pneumonia. While here the doctor gave out flu literature and regulations so we might all be more careful about spreading the disease.

LOCAL BRIEFS

The Red Cross has installed a tuberculosis exhibit in the postoffice lobby. Over a million people die every year from this “white plague” and a large part of them could be prevented.
