RANDALL PARRISH . One of the most popular, most in dustrious and typically American writers of the day, is Randall Parrish, He deals largely in plots of romance . j a * p ' mystery and adventure. Frequently the setting is in the West, but not always. His latest story "The Mys tery of the Silver Dagger" is laid in ,, j- . .I,., the East and introduces new char acters and incidents. One of its un usual angles is the mystery with which he surrounds the principal female participant. You do not dis cover until the final chapter whether she is a dangerous criminal, a foreign plotter, a secret service agent or just from a high sense of duty.

American Falls Is enlisted with the Southern Idaho Power and Light users In their fight «gainst alleged Increases In rates sought by the Idaho Powor Company.

The city council has appro priated one percent of it» 1920 light and power hill to the cause and other large users are expected to be wiling to do th osante. The Company's Side. The Idaho Power Company In a let ter states in effect that II seekH only an equitable solution of tho rate pro blem, and is merely complying with the stnte laws, when It files nn Inven tory and asks a return of six percent annual Interest thereon. It asks us ers to assist it In making equitable rates and concludes with Ihe assertion that It Is primarily Interested In ser vice to Its customers and % proper return on the Investment of Its many small stockboders. This etter wan addressed to the Mayor. That the Inventory of the Power Company filed with the Public Utili ties t'oinmislon Ih badly inflated Is the statement Issuing from headquarter» of the Power and Light Users Asso ciation In Boise. Tho power and light users are to attempt to deflate th!». Inventory by an audit which they an ticipate wll cost between $10,000 anil $20,000. They are working on the theory that one porcont of their bill now will he better spent than 60 per cent of their bill later on to the Idaho Power Company, For If the Public Utilities Commission allows the pre sent Inventory of the company to. stand, It will mean a 00 percent In crease in rates, according to the Us ers Association , Sherman Is President.
