Light to moderate rains fell In the northern counties but the amounts in many localities were too small to do much good. Re ports indicate that rain is much need ed in practically all districts. Fair weather with abundant^ bright sun shine predominated during the week and conditions for outdoor work were all that could be desired. Farm work is mostly well in hand Drying winds prevailed during much of the week, robbing the soil of much need ed moisture, _ The coo! weather was not especial ly detrimental to wheat which in most localities is doing well. Wow ever, in Jerome, Power, and Cassia counties the crop Is much in nerd of rain, and in Bonneville county some fields were damaged bv drifting soil In the northern counties the crop was much benefitted by the rains of the 11th and 15th. While the cold, dry weather was no t favorable for the rs"id growth of alfalfa and pasture grasses, meadows and pastures are generally reported in Rood condition and a few warm days will hrlng into quick growth aRain, especially If warm rains occur ïn the northern counties the range was improved by rains: in Cassia county the high range is good but the low range needs rain badly and for age U short. However, In most eras ing districts range feed continues ample and livestock are still thriving Range lambing continued with con ditions not particularly unfavorable for although there were cold wind« 'here wns little inclement weather. A fine lamb crop is renorted in Clark county. Fruit tijees cnrrW into. tblo'1m i in some of the higher and later districts during the week and there was sonic frost damage but the great commer cial fruit districts suffered no further injury. Garden and truck crops made little or no growth, except that can nery peas in Boundary county are growing nicely. Sugar beets are com ing up in Jerome county and are in good condition in the Twin Falls dis trict, but in the Idaho Falls and Po catello districts the soil has been too cold and dry to start the seed, and in the former district seed beets are at a standstill.

Grif fiths of Greenleaf narrowly escaped serious injury Tuesday afternoon when a horse hitched to a two-wheel ed cart in which he was riding, be came frightened and ran away. An older boy who was in the "cart ws thrown out almost immediately. The horse ran up Kimball avenue to Al bany where it turned to the right and ran up Albany for two blocks and again turned onto 10th street. Upon reaching the alley between Al bany and Belmont it swerved again to the right and ran up the alley to the courthouse where it collided with tree throwing out the little boy and finally coming to a halt on the courthouse lawn. The child's screams attracted quite a crowd who followed the flight until they were met by Mrs. B. M. Holt who had pursued the run away in her car and had picked up the boy and was bringing him back to town. It seemed almost inevitable that the child would be badly hurt and the onlookers were great_ly_ relieved to find him absolutely uninjured ex cept for a slight scratch above the knee.

"We've got to get together." That is the sentiment all over the state, and it is growing. The dependency of one class upon the other is more generally recog nized than ever before, and it is al so dawning upon all thinking people that those idlers who fatten upon the endeavor of others are not represen tative of the business life of the com munity or of the state but an element that is thriving by keeping these vari ous interests apart and fighting each other. That element is composed of agita tors of the worst type, some of them talking in society others on the street corners, -but all of a kind*—grafters. That is a harsh word but it seems to express the situation correctly. It is to get awa v from these higli-brow and low-brow trouble-makers and to unite in a program of progress that many people We getting together tn a variety of ways who heretofore have stood aloof frcm each other, in other. j Illustration I Living Illustration A living illustration is furnished the case of a Boise street ear com pany. The men. members nf ri union, wanted a raise and deserved it. The company, a bankrupt in renlitv, with its property up for sale in court, wanted a one-man car service in the hope of pulling out. The men pro tested that and at the same time ask ed for a raise. The manager of the company showed them the book "You bovs are getting all the money that comes in." he said. "You de serve more moricv, but I can't pay it. for it isn't in sight. Unless we get a one-man car service you will all be out of work so far as this company is concerned, instead of half being out. I would not blame von if you would quit. That's what T would do if I were in vour place. The cards arc on the table, bovs. and von know all about the situation Unless we can get relief some way the line will be Junked—and it is almost lunk now because we have bad no money to pay out excepting for wages" The bovs put their heads together, checked up the statements of the manager, found them correct, discov ered that the auto was responsible for the company's financial difficult problems. Maybe nothing can be done, but the spirit of the work m reveals a complete understanding of the necessity of co-operation ^ 1 bovs have as much Interest in tb business today as though they owned Farmers and Corporations The farmers recently had an ample showing the desirability of mutual interest. Wlvn Post m ? ste Burleson raised the telephone rates in order to meet expenses of operation rural lines were not* included. T! farmers discovered that they had been thus favored because of natural inequalities to which they were sub jected. They also discovered that lines had been extended to sparsely se'tl communities and maintained at a loss . to give them a service that folks in the cities had to pay for to a lar"" extent, at least meeting the deflc-1 ieney up to a certain point. That also caused a change of sen timent farming communities relative CALDWELL FARMER .BUYSF1NEIOWAGATTLE Thos. W. Tarr Brings in Some Best Ever Brought to This State of Thos. W. Tarr, the well known Fargo larmer and stockman, return ed a short time ago trom Iowa where ne purchased some ol the tinest cat tle ever sold in that state. Saturiia> a cärioad ol this cattle arnved in Caldwell. some idea ol the class o» stult Mr. Tarr bought may be gained ironx the fact that tue average price per head tor the entire car was »llUu. One cow and calf cost Air. i'arr $£!AA>, 1 lb-month old hener cost $2100. Mr. larr said that this stulf was, bought at the iiednck sale, which b> the way brought the highest prices o» any livestock sale ever held in the United States, the stock bringing oi. an average ol over $AJU0 per head. Mr. Tarr said Monday: "A person must have supreme conlidence in the luture oi this country to buy this kinti of stock. 1 have that conlidence. i believe my judgment will be vindicat ed in time." Iowa Stock to Idaho The Fonda limes of Tonda, Iowa, has a short article in its issue of Ma> öth concerning one of the Shorthori/ sales which Mr. Tarr attended. The limes says in part: "The sale ot Shorthorn cattle held here Tuesday was largely attended bj breeders from all over Iowa and sur rounding states. Thirty-two head oi tine Shorthorn stock was put up ant. averaged over $800 per head. Tht top price of the sale was paid by Mis Mae Mercer of Caldwell, Idaho, who in connection with her brother-in law, T. W. Tarr, is operating a largt cattle ranch near there. The fiele man of the Kennedy sale said tha with the purchases of the Tarr ano Mercer made at the Shorthorn salt and of Baldwin's at lledrick, llerkle man's at Elwood with those bouglu a year ago at Atlantic, they now liavt the finest herd of cattle ever sent into the state of Idaho." Such a tribute from Kennedy's field man is worth something, as he is an luthority. Mr. Tarr is very proud ol his herd. He is a progressive.' to the cities, and it has also resulted in the farming population having a better understanding of the serious problems confronting legitimate cor »orations, the success of which in daho spells success for everybody. All over the state this feeling of mutuality of interest is manifest, and is becoming so pronounced as to tract favorable attention on the part o£ the hamescekers and investors both of whom are sorelv needed in Idaho at this time. Ice Cream Social There wilt be an ice cream social at the Huston school house Friday even ing, May 23, to raise money for the French orphan adopted by the school Come, play croquet and other games see Uncle Sam and watch the May Pole winding. Ice cream served at six and later. Bryan Harding, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. Harding, is home from over seas, having been with the American Expeditionary Forces. Young Hard ing was right up to the front -and saw some of the hardest fighting of th war. For several months now he has been in Germany with the army occupation. Bryan says he is glad to be home again and most assuredly his friends and relatives are glad that he is at home. In the probate court this week R.

Jobs For disabled Yanks Wasnington, D. C, .May 21. —An executive order recently issued by the president and received by cable amends the lederal civil-service rules so as 'o permit the 0. S. Civil service commission to waive the pnysical re quirements under certain conditions in lavor ot men who were injured m the military or naval service. The ciVil service regulations specify certain pnysical delects which deoar irom all examinations and other de fects whicli will debar lrom certain examinations. These regulations arc based upon the requirements ot the service as established by the several department heads. Upon the recommendation of the commission, alter consultation with the lederal board for vocational edu cation and the U. S. Employees' Compensation commission, the presi dent issued an executive order, as fol lows: "Provided, that the commission may, in its discretion, exempt trom the physical requirements established for any position a disabled and hon orably discharged soldier, sailor or marine upon the certitication of the federal board for vocational éduca tion that he has been specially train ed for and has passed a practical test demonstrating his physical ability to perform the duties of the class ol positions in which employment sought." in submitting its recommendation to the president the Civil Service com mission said: "Where it is apparent to this commission that his (.the dis abled soldier's, sailor's, or marine's) physical condition is such that he would not ordinarily be accepted, the case will be reierred to the federal board for vocational education. That board will then decide whether it is practicable, to educate him for the position sought, if considered prac ticable, the rehabilitation and educa tion will be given, and when com pleted certification of that fact will be made to this commission. Where the board does not consider it desir able to attempt the education for the position sought some other positions will be considered and suggested to him, but he will not be admitted to the one for which his physical con dition constitutes an irremediable bar." A decree of divorce was denied in the district court Friday to Mrs. Mae Neil. Judge Bryan held that the grounds were insufficient. The plain tiff alleged that the husband, Charles Neil, was subject to epileptic fits at the time the marriage was contracted and that his condition was unknown to her. W. P.

A man in good physical condition is almost certain to enjoy life, while the bilious and dyspeptic are despondent, do not enjoy their meals and feel mis erable a good share of the time. This ill feeling is nearly always unneces sary. A few doses of Chamberlain's Tablets to tone up the stomach, im prove the digestion and regulate the bowels is all that is neded. Try it. City Water Superintendent Beatty has been having trouble with the rec lamation service. The new canal along the brow of Canyon Hill crosses the water mains and the workmen have been rather careless in their work there.

Mr. Beatty is keeping a close watch on the work: has im pressed the contractors with the ne cessity of carefulness; and is*in hopes that there will be no more trouble. W. H. Redway who returned from Chicago last week has started in with characteristic energy and enterprise to doing things. He has already start ed to renovate and improve the resi dence in which he will live; let the tontract for another cottage and is making plans for a number of cot tages. Mr. Redway sees the needs of I Caldwell and will do his part toward supplying those needs.
