A social function, probably the first event of the kind in the history of the world, will be given at Florence next Saturday evening. The affair has been heralded throughout the valley by means of posters which read as follows: ''Woodtick Dance. To be given in Woodmen hall, Florence, Saturday evening, June 22, 1907. This dance is for the purpose of raising funds to burn brush and other necessary meas ures to rid the west side of its pest, the Woodtick. Tickets, including sup per, $1.50," The theory is now very generally accepted that the so-called spotted fever is caused by the bite ot an in fected woodtick. Dr. Ricketts of Chicago, has, indeed, demonstrated this beyond doubt. The doctor is spending the summer in Western Mon tana continuing his investigations in quest of a remedy for the malady and is very confident of ultimate success. Last winter the legislature appropria ted $2,000 towards defraying the ex pense of the investigation. The fever season is practically over for this year as, coincident with the disappearance of the woodticks at the first approach of hot summer weather, the malady subsides. MORE TRIAL JURORS DRAWN.
