The Bonners Ferry Herald NUMBER d ^TWENTY-SEOOND YEAR BONNERS FERRY, IDAHO. FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1912. MAY EMPLOY EXPERT FARMER Sandpoint Commercial Club Fathers Project of Securing Agricultura list to Aid Firmer« EXPENSES WOULD BE UGHT Government Pays Salary -County to Pay Expenses Only 1 A plan is now on foot, fathered by the Saudpoint commercial club, whereby Bonner county may se cure the entire time and services of an expert agriculturalist who will spend his time in visiting various communities of the county in order that he may give such information as is asked and advise with the fanners on questions concerning the planting, caring for and har vesting of their crops. The projmsition was brought up Wednesday evening before the Sandpoint commercial club by Dean Carlyle of the Idaho College of Agriculture. The commercial club was informed that the salary of such an expert would be paid by the government. The expenses of the expert, which would amount to about $1,000, would have to be borne by the comity employing him. Dean Carlyle stated that the Idaho Agricultural college would pay half of the expense money so that it would only be necessary for the county to raise $500 to secure the proposed services of an expert. The proposition met with the f^VPl - of the Sanfipoint commercial plnh and the members of that body decided to take np the matter with the various other clubs of the county at once. It was proposed that the county commissioners be asked to appropriate $250 of the sum to be raised by the county and that the remaining $250 be assumed and raised by the several commer cial club organizations. Dean Carlyle suggested the name of Earl C. Hall, a graduate of the Idaho agricultural college, as a man who was well fitted to look after the interests of Bonner county farmers, He told that the plan was one that met with favor where ever tried and that the services of the farmer's expert always proved to be of incalcuable yal^e \o the farmers and ranchers. y *AI$E $147Q FDR NEW CHURCH Loça) P««p)e Give Liberally For New C«tMic Church Building Members of the Catholic church expect to spend in the neighbor hood of $3,000 in the erection of their new church building, the plans of which are now being pre pared by Contractor John Muhl feld. ¥ For the past two weeks Rev.

Justice O'Callaghan held the de fendant not guilty and dismissed the case. The defendant was arrested by Marshal Sawyer on the charge of having stolen a watch from a rancher by the name of Napoleon Beaudette last Thursday. Beau dette told Marhal Sawyer that h* had been robbed but could not give a description of the guilty party. Next day Marshall Sawyer learned that the watch had been pawned for fifty cents by Burke. When asked about the matter Burke told the marshal that he had pawned no watch. On being confronted by the man to whom he had pawned the article he admitted the act but slated that he had brought the watch wich him from Minnesota, In the meantime Marshal Sawyer learned that the watch which Burke pawned had been purchased about six o'clock last Thursday evening at O. F, Howe's jewelry store by Beaudette. At the trial Wednesday the de fense told that he had purchased the watch in question of Beaudette and this testimony was corroborated by George Schofield who told that he was present when the deal was made and had advanced fifty cents to the defendant to help pay for the watch. The state had evidence which showed that Schofield knew nothing of the transaction at the time Burke went to him to have him go on his bonds but the ad mittance of this testimony was re fused. Burke admitted falsifying to Marshal Sawyer and said that he did so because he considered it none of the marshal's business where he got the watch. S. S.
