County Superintendent Prepares Ex
titbits for the Pair.
Mrs. Lillie B. Wertz, County
School Superintenuent, has pre
pared and shipped a number of
samples of school work from the
various districts of the county to
be included among Idaho's exhibits
at the coming fair, which opens at
Portland, Oregon, Thursday, June
1,1905—two weeks and two days
The work in general is com
mendable, while some of the pieces
are exceptionally well executed, among
which may be mentioned the drawing
examination papers from King Hill;!
Glenn 8 Terry work in geueial, and
especially the "Key to O.S.L. and Map
, T , . „ , . . , v,
or Idaho;" drawing, from Koeky Bar;
arithmetic papers and other work from
Atlanta; "George Washington Hatch
ets," primary, kindergarten and grade
work from Mountain Home; drawing
and examination papers from Fall
Creek; grade work from the Jackson
The papers, as a rule, are neatly ex
ecuted, a- d give evidence of painstak
ing care on the part of the pupils—the
appearance of only two or three denot
ing lack of interest in their prepara
tion. These are from the High School.
Col. Allen Miller, State Immigration
Commissioner, was in Mountain Home
a few hours last week on business con
nected with a spec al publication which
he is preparing for distribution on the
incoming Eastern trains at a point near
the borderline of the State, when the
heavy passenger traffic sets in for the
coming fair. Col. Alien believes in
having literature of this nature placed
in the hands of visitors while en route,
instead of on the fair grounds, where
such a mass of reading matter is en
countered as to preclude more than a
cursory glance at best.
The several counties of the State are
to be allotted a given amount of space
in which to set forth their special ad
vantages. The work will cost each
county $125, which, considering the
importance of the matter, and t he na
ture and source of the publication, is

came in on No.5 Saturday afternoon
and proceeded west the following
day. Mr. Campbell is now con
nected with the Collier Co., and is
at present going over the circuit
covered by li. S. Moore until his
death last Tuesday, May 9, at
Moore was fatally stabbed by an
insane Armenian at Peekaboo, a
small station on the Hailey branch
between Bellevue and Shoshone,
Monday,.May 8. In conversation
Saturday evening with Mr. Camp
bell jie said, concerning the
"In addition to the other passen
gers on the first train to Hailey
Monday, May 8, 1905, were Moore
and the crazy Armenian (1 don't
recall his name).
"The latter was observed to
| leave the train at Peekaboo. He
appeared to be acting a trifle
queer, hut nothing more was
thought of the matter until the re
turn of the train in the afternoon,
when he again attracted the atten
tion of the passengers by his pecu
"It appears that the Armenian
had been attempting, during the
day, to secure communication by
phone with the 'Salt Lake Saloon,'I
as he termed it, at Pocatello, but
was unable to do so, as the tele
phone operators and others were
afraid of him and refused to have
anything to do with him.
"Obviously, the man should not
be left to his fate, under such cir
curnstances; though, as usual,
what was everybody's business was
nobody's business. Finally Moore
and another man decided to at
tempt to get the Armenian on the
train and take him back to Sho
shone. The lunatic had assumed
a crouching position, on hands and
knees, near the railroad water tank.
As the two men approached he was
muttering to himself, and Moore,
stooping over, placed one hand on
his shoulder, urging him to ac
company them into the passenger
"Suddenly, without warning, the
Armenian sprang up and plunged
a knife, concealed in his right
hand, into Moore's throat, just
under the jaw.
"Sheriff Millsap of Shoshone was
present, being one of the passen
gers; but it is said that he refused
to take any action on the ground
that it was not in his jurisdiction.
"Finally the Constable at Belle
vue, who was also present (I
think his name is Cheshire), bor
rowed the Sheriff's revolver and
went after the murderous lunatic.
As he approached he ordered the
Armenian to throw up his hands
but the latter, instead of obeying,
started for Cheshire, brandishing
the knife in frenzied rage,
the madman was almost upon him,
repeated warnings having no
effect" Cheshire fired. The Arme
nian dropped and expired.
"Moore was taken to the Conti
nental hotel at Bellevue, where Dr.
Allen attended him, assisted by
Dr. I'lummer of Hailey. In spite of
all that could be done to save him,
Moore succumbed to his injuries
about 3:40 p. m. Tuesday, May 9.
The remains were sent to
for embalming, and then forwarded
to hie home in Ontario, Canada.
