WORKED LONG AND HARD Sergeant Thornhill's Cooking Was Envy Of Camp—Corporal Guy Walker Won Sensational Roman Races From Field Of Entries. Troop "A" first Idaho Cavalry set the pace for the Squadron at Camp Brady, Boise, and returned home Mon day evening with sunburned noses and weather beaten faces, the result of their two weeks encampment in the capitol city. Four hours mounted drill combined with four hours on the target range, together with routine camp work, was the daily medicine that took all the kinks out of the boys, especially those who had been used to a swivel chair and the tempting shade of city streets. The daily routine Degan at 5:30 p. m. provided guard duty was not in order. Restric tions were very limited after that time, so that the boys were enabled to enjoy a good time and the hospitality of the people of Boise. a. m. " <>n Many Hon«r& Troop "A," though the smallest in numbers present at Camp, succeeded in winning more than its share of the j honors. The silver loving cup given j for the best drilled platoon at the en campment, went to Troop "A." j Troop "A" also won the squad drill but iter team was technically disquali- 1 fied and the prize and ended at 7:46 awarded another 1 troop.

Out of all the entries | he was the only man to retain his mounts, the other falling or being thrown from their team of horses, Troop "A" placed second in the saddle race, the litter race and relay race.

John Regan Post of the American Legion entertained the officers Friday evening following the parade before the capitol with a dance and reception that pleased every her of the Troop. The discipline and efficiency of Troop "A" excelled at all times and bore evidence of the activity of the local Troopers when at home, excellency on the rifle and pistol range placed them in the van in this department also and was occasioned hy the practicing they had been able to do prior to camp.

A glowing testimony to the initiative and hospitality of the people of Arbon Valley was enacted Saturday and again Sunday when several hundred visitors accepted their broadcast invi tation to picnic and get acquainted at the Toyne ranch seven miles south of Pauline. The weather was ideal for the oc casion, a slight and refreshing breeze wiping away the dullness of the at mosphere. The crowd of some 800 people that Joined in the festivities Saturday was replaced Sunday with a crowd estimated at 1,200. Every road into the valley was littered with visit ing teams and automobiles on their way to the Toyne ranch. By mid afternoon the dust became bothersome from the incessant traffic In all di rections, but not objectionable enough to allay the spirits of the interested crowd of visitors. Driller On The Job Driller Hughes entertained every visitor at least once with a narration of the drilling activities and the proximate location of oil in the valley. The rig he is overseeing is now down to a depth of 100 feet and drilling operations are suspended until casing can be supplied to keep out the heavy flow of water. The real program for the two days began at 2 p. m. Saturday when the an nouncement was made that the hlg fat steers that had been barbecuqd, were ready for service. The tender Juicy meat of the bovines was soon dissi pated by the hungry visitors, many of whom had driven twenty to sixty miles to be there. up Pauline 'Wen Following the barbecue was a ball game between Pauline and the Arbon Bears, then another game with the Daniels team. Pauline annexed the last game three -to two in a ninth in ning rally. The Cubs had been taken into camp with a comfortable margin of victory. Senator Harding of Malad addressed the gathering following the ball game and told graphically of the early pio neer days when the first settlers had come to the valley.

CARLOAD BUTTER SOLD TO SWIFT American Falls Creamery Will Fur nish Twenty Thousand Founds Of Locally Mann fact tired Froduet To Large Wholesaler. The American Falls Creamery con tracted with Swift and Company tills week to furnish twenty thousand pounds of butter during the next thirty days, according to the announcement made yesterday by G. Drost, local manager of the creamery. The con tract' is one of the largest single con tracts yet entered Into and is regarded by Mr. Dors! as a fore runner of oilier contracts to follow. The American Falls Creamery is gaining a reputation for its product that augurs well for future business, says Mr. Drost, who urges the croani ery patrons to continue their splendid support. The last few days have wit nessed a slight falling off in cream purchases- due, It is believed, to the drying up of grass. Many dairynum will soon begin to feed hay. The creamery has a payroll now of approximately $3,000 monthly for Its customers. This money formerly left the county. Thus it is seen that pa tronage is doubly beneficial and will be reflected In a price for cream that generally exceeds the local market furnished by outside firms.

Lee French Feature Remarkable Game at Arbon Sunday. By G. M. Oliver, Official Soore Keeper. Everything possible to see In a base ball game was seen at Arbon Sunday when American Falls beat the Arbon Bears 21 to 6. Here's the features: Twenty-six tuns. Twenty four hits. Seventeen Errors. Twenty-five or 30 overthrows and about that many underthrows benched. The diamond was covered with about six Inches of dust and this aided tho base runner* by throwing up a "smoko screen" around them, much to the sorrow of the opposition anil the umpire, especially the the umps. Umpire French llcnclicd Tito dust also served ns an alibi for the fielders when they made an error, so we have charged ull «if the errors and 14 runs to the dust In the official averages. late French started tin- game as um pire and satisfied everybody until the fifth tuning. Here's where the dust enters again. An Arbon player knock ed a bail down the first has« line. The Arlxm captain claimed It was a fair ball hut Lee, whose eyes were full of dust, though! otherwise and »ailed It fowl. The usual procedure in a oase of this kind Is the player to be benched but Arbon didn't have any «-xlra players and there wore about 600 peo ple on the sidelines who had been trying to umpire so Lee was benched und one of them given a chance. Johnson Pitched Johnson, pitching for Arbon, fouled 11 American Falls men but was touch ed for 19 hits which coupled with errors and overthrows put. Arlmn out of the running early. Lund, pitching for the locals, was very expectlve und with any support would have held Arbon to two runs. II»» fouled eight men and allowed five hits, three of them of -the scratch variety. a Lund and Stitt played the best »I* tensive game, Stitt also getting 1000 per cent In umpire hatting during the latter part of the game.
