Baking Powder J&SSfêS® ABSOLUTELY PURE ITEMS FROM THE CAPITAL. No Mid-Wintar Display—The Soldier's Home Prospects—Dedication of the Albion Normal School. .Special Correspondence. Boise City, Idaho. Jan. 10, 1894.— After all, we are not, it seems, to have Idaho represented at the Mid-Winter Fair. This is not owing to any lack of interest on the part of the people, but is due to the very hard times that pre vail throughout the state. The money could have been raised to pay the ex penses of an exhibit, but the proposition on the part of the managers at San Francisco to charge .$600.00 for space for the Horticultural Exhibit was the straw that broke the camel's back, and caused the friends who were promoting the enterprise here to give it up. In case the managers below remit the charge for space the effort to make an exhibit will b.e renewed. The matter of the erection of a Sol dier's Home is being agitated by the Board of Trustees. Secretary of State Curtis is favorable to the plan of com mencing to get out. stone for the struct ure at once. He also favors building from native stone instead of brick for the reason that it will be more substan tial. It was thought at tirst that the •ost of a stone building would be far in excfcigs of that of brick, but General Curtis \has gone over the entire plan with a competent Architect and finds that it will cost only about five hundred dollars mbfe than the proposed brick. General Curtjis urges as another reason for building ^ith stone that it will give immediate eriw)loyment to nearly two hundred men irç getting out and dress ing stone. Thèîe are quite a number of idle men here ai.d many of them can be employed in this Vork at reasonable wages. This will be'-quite a help to them and their familiesSjt will furnish employment and at the same time hast en the construction of the building. The stone can all be dressed under cover and be made ready by spring. Hon. A. S. Senter, Chairman of the Board, also looks favorably upon this plan, and it is probable that the other members will agree to it. As repre sentatives of the Garnd Army of the Republic they will be willing to do all in their power to aid honest laboring men to tide over the present hard winter. While on this subject it may be well to dispell an idea that seems to have gained credence, that the selection of a commandant and adjutant of the home last fall involved their being put on the pay-roll of the state from the date of their appointment. Such was not the case. It was fully understood by the officers mentioned, as by all the mem bers of the board that they were not to receive any salary till they were placed on duty, which could not be until after the completion of the building. The people of Idaho mav be assured that the business affairs are perfectly safe in the hands of the men who are mem bers of the board of trustees. This duilding when completed will accommodate one hundred men, and will be a model of architectural skill and convenience. General Curtis has been an active friend of the home from its inception c. o. D. STORE. NEW THIS WEEK. CRANBERRIES Best Cape Cod berries 12i cents per quart. NEW ORLEANS MOLASSAS.

The dedication and opening of the Albion State Normal School, which took place on the 8th inst. marks an educational epoch in Idaho. The citi zens there have donated a fine five acre tract of land for a campus and have erected a handsome building at a cost, of perhaps, twenty-live hundred dollars, that will seat one hundred and fifty pupils. This speaks well for the enter prise of the people, and the legislature will, no doubt, supplement their effort by liberal appropriation. NOTIuE.
