SORRY TO LOSE HER
It was with deep regret that
the many friends of Miss Anna

afternoon, that she contemplates

As circumstances make her re
turn problematical, Miss True
has been requested to take
charge of the school in her
stead, and has indicated her
acceptance. Miss True will re
lieve Miss Nellie Whillans, who
has been performing the duties
since Miss Carroll's departure,
next Monday morning.

Well Known Young People Start on
Charles Herbert Kelsey and
Miss May Louise Burns, both
well known in Mountain Home
and vicinity, were married
Monday forenoon at the Kelsey
home, the ceremony being per
formed by Rev. C. E, Mason.
Owing to the recent death of
the groom's father, C. Ii. Kelsey,
which occurred less than a year
ago, the function was a very
quiet, only a few immediate
friends being present.
The couple left on the noon
train for Portland, Ore., from
where they will go to San Fran
cisco. They will then visit the
bride's grandmother, Mrs. Jules
Hagar, at San Jose, their inten
tion being to remain in Califor
nia for some time.
Agent and Operator are Now Taking
The gladsome smile is gone, now,
from the station agent's face. He
doesn't beam any more on the agitated
young lady who rushes up to the ticket
window and wants to know if the rail
road clock has the right time, or if it,
is too fast or too glow.
Yes, the station agent is clothed in
gloom. (He says it's cheaper than buy
ing a new Spring suit, and it will prob
ably do just as well, anyway.) And the
operator—he's in on the proposition,
too; same pattern, in fact, as the station
The cause of all this woe is because

work formerly done by three. The
warehouseman is gone—went on Jan
uary 15, since which time Ulery and
Gibbons have been giving daily imita
tions of the strenuous life. It's worth
double the price of admission to see
Ulery heave out a truckload of time
freight, rush to the ticket office to wait
on a bunch of clamorous Boiseites, and
then skip merrily out into the yard and
grab the numbers of 75 or 30 freight
oars. Or, to see Gibbons scratch off a
franked message, sprint all over town
iu quest of the addressee, stop at the
postofflce for mail on his way back,
and then check out a consignment of
hurry-up freight while the receiver on
his desk is sizzling with a call from the
operator at Nampa.
But Ulery and Gibbons are not the
only ones—there are others. The ax
fell at Mountain Home, Nampa, Oald
well, Payette, decapitating one man at
each place; Weiser, two men; Ontario,
Ore., one man, thus removing seven
names from the payroll.
The Greatest Game for Young
The greatest thing out in the
game line, for young or old, is the
great game, Gammut. This is a
combination of games comprising
Flinche, Muggins, Pit, Panic,

other games. In other words you,

The Nemo Card Co.,
Last Saturday morning it sud
denly occurred toW.H. Manion
that it was the 61st anniversary
of his birth. He arrived upon
the scene of human activity and
things January 28, 1844, in La
fayette county, Missouri, near
the Big Pigeon. This was one
of the "high-water" years on the
Mississippi, but Manion refuses
to acknowledge that his advent
was in any way responsible for
such unruly conduct on the part
of the "Father of Waters."
In the Spring of 1868 Mr.
Manion came West, and has
been a resident of Mountain
Home and vicinity for the past
16years.He doesn't look as though

mers had been playing leap-frog
