The people of Idaho gasped
when the statement first was
'made public and "impossible" and
other conventional things
And then they remembered
other things tht the National
administration had done.
They remembered, for in
stance, how former Secretary of
War Dickinson had promised fine
fat federal jobs to Mississippi leg
islators who would vote for the
"fight sort of Democrat."
To. wit: One, LeRoy Percy,

Steer clear of whisky as "medi

germs, but it kills folks, too. It
weakens the tissues-of the body
and lowers the general power of
resistance to disease.
Whisky or brandy may be used

Whisky cools the body off, con
trary to what the masses believe
and if taken at all, use in only ex
treme cases. Don't take whisky
because you feel bad. It's the
same old story of whipping the
horse, for after a while the whip
ceases to drive the exhausted ani

twice as much land as they need,
when they might harvest the
same amount from half the land,
Better get wise.
