A TIP TO THE PROHIBITION OFFICERS—MYSTERY TO SOME Charley Thornhill Knows Where Amer ican Falls Gets Its Booze—Missing Link In Evidence. The "Little Brown Jug" is a rare curiosity these days even to a total abstainer like Charley Thornhill. Charley isn't telling anything but he is Just curious enough to want to know who was in the closet in the old Burke house across the river from the Power plant, New Years day when he tried to pry the door open and couldn't Years ago the old place was the gathering place of the young people of the community who used to walk the railroad bridge before the wagon bridge was erected. As Charley passed he recalled old times. The windows were gone, the doors swung open and the roof was caved in in several places. Something drew Charley to the old ramshackle building and he begun to explore it. When he entered the front door a little brown jug caught his gaze. It was sitting in the pantry across the house. Charley sniffed the contents and said"moonshine." And he never tasted a drop, he didn't (it really is dangerous business these days.) Mysterious Door. All the doors were either off their hinges or at least ajar except the one leading to a closet in a bedroom. This was indeed suspicious so Charley pried in. The door failed to yield to his weight so he procured a piece of steel and became rough, still the door would not open. Charley was in a hurry so he left the siege and started home. On the way he met a friend and related his story. The friend was sufficiently interested to continue the investigation but when he arrived at the scene of the mystery, the closet door was open and sad to relate the brown jug had disappeared. This story is the sequel to that of a barrel that mysteriously disappeared from the same old rendevous. The parties who discovered it sought to sell it to a well known bootlegger and found to their astonishment that he had already paid for it once and was quite indignant when asked to pay for it the second time. URGES LOCAL GRAIN HEALER "BUT a BARREL OF FLOUR" Movement Started Several Weeks Ago In East and Is Believed Partial Remedy for Low Price. The "Buy a barrel of flour" move ment has struck several communities over the United States and comes to American Falls this week from a local grain dealer, who sees in the move ment, a means of raising the price of wheat to the farmer. The letter re ceived this week says: "A movement of this kind "Buy A Barrel of Flour" started some thirty days ago in the east and it was ex pected that if every one cooperated, the consumer would be able to get flour at a relatively low price, the mil ling demand for wheat would improve, and farmers who have been receiving If less than the cost of production for their grain for some time would be benefited. "The movement is a good one and we think every household should do its best by buying a barrel of flour. Let every grocery store that adver tises, carry a line in his advertisement reading 'Buy A Barrel of Flour.' the movement becomes nation wide, watch the price our farmers will get for their wheat and they need all they can get. Some have voiced vigorous objection to the movement and cite in substantiation ,the fizzle of the "Buy Bale of Cotton' movement at the be ginning of the great war. They over look just this vital difference. The purchase of a bale of cotton was spec lation pure and simple. The purchase 0 f a barrel of flour is food in final hands. That is the eloquent differ ence." _ = is II îfi g T V I $4 vV-.v 11 Sr I * T c EZ 4 V I Full yJssortment at Colemans The Hallmark Jewelers ij i s ■i 3M a ESTIMATED SAVING BY SQUIRREL POISONING IS *75,WK) ! Five Hundred Seventy Farmers Used Poison on 9s,(MIO Acres of Land— Fourteen Tons of Bait Used. Ninety eight thousand eight hund-, red and eighteen acres of land were treated with poisoned bait for squir rels in 1920 according to a statement recently issued by W. E. Crouch who has charge of rodent control in the state of Idaho for the University Ex tension Division. Over 14 tons of poisoned bait, were used, the total saving estimated, is $75.113.10 and the actual number of farmers reported direct is 173. How ever 570 actually used the poison and returns for the whole number are bas ed on those made by the 173 in the county who reported. Among prominent fanners who co operated in the use of the poison were C. C. Cotterell, J. F. Kosanke, Adolf Winter, Henry Burgemeister, Osa Creasey, Wm. L. McKnight, W. W. Wall, Jr., F. W. Ertel, C.

The organization work, as ar as Idaho is concerned, began at American Falls. Ninety five percent of the wheat merketed by the Association this year, has gone through the American Falls office. Organizers who are now out over various sections of southern Idaho, are from Power County, among them Joseph May, Bruce Lampson. Harry Nelson and S. L. Wixon . J. T. Fisher, state secretary for the Association lives a few miles from American Falls and the executive com mittee is within easy traveling dis ! tance of this city. So if state head | quarters should come here it would be quite proper and natural, it is pointed I out. Local executives of the Association had no eminent to make regarding the matter except to say in effect that this seemed the logical location for such an office, in the circumstances, and i express the hope that such an arrange ment could be brought about. The centralizing of the market ma chinery of the Association in Ameri can Falls would mean largely extend ed offices and the employment of sev eral people for clerical work.
