     CHARLES A. BLATT is operating the Tenasket hotel at Molson, which is unquestionably the largest and finest equipped house in the county of Okanogan. It was built under his supervision and he is conducting it to-day in first class shape.  Mr. Blatt is an experienced host and his thorough knowledge of the care of guests, for whom he provides the best of everything, makes his place a popular resort for traveling people.  It is a house of thirty-three rooms, well arranged, tastefully kept, and provided with all modern conveniences.
     Charles A. Blatt was born in Wood county, Ohio, October 28, 1860, the son of Daniel and Sarah A. (Strock) Blatt, natives of Pennsylvania and Ohio, respectively.  They are now living in Mahoney county, Ohio, the father in his seventy-sixth year and the mother in her seventieth.  Two children have been born to them, our subject and William G., engaged with the Pingree shoe manufacturers of Detroit, Michigan.
     Charles A. attended school until the age of twelve, then engaged as salesman in a mercantile shop until 1880, when he went to Clinton, Missouri.  The following year he made his initial venture in the hotel business, continuing in  the same for several years.  In 1889, he went to Kansas City and was traveling salesman for a wholesale jewelry house for five years.  At the end of that period he went to Council Bluffs, Iowa, and again took up the hotel business.  After this Mr. Blatt filled the position of a first class host in Cripple Creek, Colorado, and later in Denver.  It was in June, 1900, that he came to the reservation and decided to locate at Molson.  The plans of the Tenasket house were drawn under his supervision and the same was erected and is now operated by him.  He also handles a first class bar, well stocked.
     On August 20, 1900, at Greenwood, British Columbia, Mr. Blatt married Margaret Milan, a native of Indiana.  One child, Charles F. M., was born to them December 20, 1901.
     Mr. Blatt is a member of the Eagles, and is one of the genial and affable men of this place.  The traveling people say of Mr. Blatt that his hotel is one of the most comfortable and well-kept in the northwest.
