Opera Hous Damaged by Fire.
A fire originating in the project
ing room of the opera house, used as
a picture show under the management
of Mr. William Switzer, did consider
able damage to the interior of the
building and the picture show equip
ment Saturday evening. Only a few
persons were in the opera house at
'the time, it being about supper time,
so nothing like a stampede occurred,
though those who were present made
a rather hurried exit. It is understood
that Mr. Switzer will be ready for
business again in a few weeks.

Hog May Not Trespass.
Chief Justice Ailshie of the supreme
court of Idaho makes the following
comment in Fall Creek Sheep com
pany vs. Walton on the effect of a
statute gelating to trespassing hogs:
"The man who drew the'amendment
made swine an exception in the laws
of Idaho from all other kinds of tres
passing animals. So npw when that
cloven-footed quadruped of ancient no
toriety goes foraging beyond the pro
tecting care of the swineherd he at
once loses his character as a domestic
animal and becomes forao naturao,
subject to capture by anyono on whose
promises he may at any indiscreet mo
ment find himself. Of course the hog
doesn't care much about his char
acter; he would ordinarily just as soon
be treated as a wild animal as to be
treated as if he had been domesti
cated for centuries. His fate is gen
erally about the same either way."
