lenz last week sold the People's

cock, E. D. Hamilton and F. G.
Laselle. Mr. and Mrs. Mielenz

Thurman, Idaho, March 11.—
Thurman," the new postoffice for
the Dry Creek district, was for
mally opened today amid much
rejoicing, speechmaking, banquet
ing and other things. At 12:15 p.
m. Carrier Underwood halted his
chariot at the front portal, and
Postmaster Lattimore took charge
of the first regular mail pouch like
After the mail had been distrib
uted Mrs. Latimore and daughter
assumed command of the situation,
taking the invited guests—12 in
number—to the dining room. It
is hardly necessary to state that
the refreshments were appreciated,
the absence of a button on Mr.
Underwood's waistband being no
ticed immediately afterward.
Mr. Sproat, who was chiefly in
strumental in establishing the new
office, made a few remarks perti
nent to the occasion. A number
heard to remark afterward
that they thought they had been
listening to a combination address
from Bobby Burns, Walter Scott
and Robert Bruce. The speaker,
while loth to hurt the feelings of
neighboring cities, or cause them
any unnecessary alarm, deemed it
proper, at this time, to throw out a
gentle hint to the effect that
Mountain Home and Boise would
better guard well their boundary
lines from this on, as Thurman is
now on the advance.

W. C. Howie, of Mountain
Home, has been one of the pub
lic benefactors of that place in
his fruitgrowing demonstrations.
Ten years ago Mr. Howie, who
is a lawyer in active practice,
started his home place in the
town, having 1^ acres of ground.
Mr. Howie installed a windmill
with a 50 barrel tank; and this
plant lias supplied him with all
the water he has used, up to
this time, for irrigation and
household purposes. His plant
ings have consisted of apples,
pears, peaches, plums, prunes,
cherries, apricots, nectarines,
almonds, and all small fruits,
and have been largely experi
mental. He has tested, and
now has in thrifty bearing,
some 130 varieties of the differ
ent kinds of orchard fruits, hav
ing 30 or more different kinds
of apples. His selections were
made of choice, well known
fruits, for the purpose of testing
their adaptability to his locality,
and, at this time, a large num
ber of these varieties are now
fruiting on his grounds. He
takes great pains with his trees,
and, as a result, his fruit is al
ways large and attractive, so
much so, in fact, that people
are very glad to get any surplus
that he may have to spare, at

Unit much fruit is given away
to visitors, and used in the
home. Last year fully $500
worth of fruit was produced on
this li acre tract. Mrs. Howie
has all that they care to sell as
her "pin money," and in 1903
took in from this source the
snug little sum of $250. But
the returns from this fruit, and
the success in growing this or
chard, meansmore to Mountain
Home than the money returns
or the founding of a nice family
orchard. As a pioneer in fruit
growing in the place, his or
chard home has been "an ob
ject lesson" which has been of
great benefit to this portion of
the State. Mr. Howie has done
well, and his example is worthy
