The Central School gave a fine
Xmas programme Thurdsay evening,

the program pies were auctioned off,
for funds to help with the lunches.
The Xmas tree was beautifully decor

the candies which was lighted in some
way caught a Xmas bell afire on the
tree and in a few moments the top of
the tree was all ablaze. By quick
work of the men the tree was pulled
over and the fire extinguished, but not
until it bad burned about half of the
tree and a few presents. A strong
south wind was blowing which would
have soon taken the building if the i
fire had became much stronger. The j
proceeds from the pies amounted to

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.)
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
less than the cost of production for
their grain for some time would be
"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

CENTRAL OFFICE OF WHEAT
GROWER'S MAY COME HERE
Local Men Hope to Make American
Falls Central Exchange for State
That the central office of the Idaho
Wheat Grower* Association with its
necessarily large exchange, will be lo
cated in American Falls is the belief
o fa considerable number of local busi
ness men who have been dwelling on
the development that 1921 in likely to
bring to this city.
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
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
