Idaho Weather and Crop Conditions
Boise, Idaho, May 21.—While the
past week was not quite so cold as
the one preceding, it was still too cold
for crops, except wheat, to make nor
mal progress. 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
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.
The 9-year-old son of T. H. 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

Conditions Could Be Improved by
Great State Co n vention—All Are
Dependent U"on Each Other
Boise, Ida., May 22.—If it were pos
sible for a state convention to be
held in Idaho, composed of delegates
representing farmers, laborers, banks,
corporations, mercantile institutions,
professional life and that body went
seriously to work to solve the indus
trial problems of Idaho the situation
would merely reflect a frame of mind
that is finding individual expression
in increasir volume.
"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
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
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

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
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
Thos. W. Tarr Brings in Some
Best Ever Brought to This
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.

Do You Enjoy Life?
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. Once or twice the
water had to be shut off on account
of carelessness on the part of con
tractors. 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.
