Ike Morgan and Jack Bailey of
Texas ridge raised a small patch of
sorgum on Texas ridge ridge this
season. It was more or less in the
nature of an experiment and proved
very successful. They only had a
few rows but it grew to maturity
and was as good as that grown in
the sunny south. They bought a
small sorgum mill and made 18 gal
lons of syrup from the stalks they
harvested from the patch. Next
year they expect to plant a much
larger field and it will probably do
even better as it will have been ac

O. S. Fletcher, agricultural agent !
for Latah county made Kenidick a
short visit last Friday. He was j
quite surprised to see the quality ;
of corn which the Potlatch country ;
raises. Some sample ears on dis
play at the Gazette office, brought
in by Jack Bailey, he said were
the best he had ever seen in the
northwest. Mr. Bailey attributes
much of his success in corn raising
to the fact tha^ he plants it
quite thin on the ground and for
this reason nearly every stalk has
from one to two good ears of corn.

Alec Galloway brought in the
most peculiar hill of potatoes last
week that ever grew in the Pot
latch courftry. It weighed over
nine pounds, whieh^is nothing re
markable, but it was the freakiest;
knottiest, karliest, wartiest, bump
iest pile of spuds the writer ever
saw. When the tubers were all as
sembled, much in the manner in
which they grew in the ground,
they looked liked a pile of small
l otatoes, but in reality .they were

might have amounted to something
but they were too prolific to do

In announcing our advent into
business we need no introduction.
Having lived in this community
over thirty years and having met
you constantly in a business way
during the past fifteen years, we
feel that any admissions on our part
are unnecessary.
Since we bought Messrs. Compton
& Son out we have practically
doubled the stock and new goods
are being added every day. Event
ually ours will be one of the most
complete stocks of groceries in this
part'of the country. New lines of
merchandise will be added as con
ditions may warrant.
Have now been open for business
two weeks and, although handicap
ped by an incomplete stock and
many other inconveniences incident
to starting off, the volume of busi
ness already done would do credit
to a much larger store.
We believe there is room in Kend
rick for just such a store as we in
tend to conduct; a store outwardly
much like other stores, but conduct
ed on methods and principles that
are generally denounced by mer
chants as impractical.
We will not revolutiönize the
store business in a few weeks or a
few months, but we expect our
presence here to be known if by no
other token than the comment of
those who would rather we were
not here.
We are under very little expense
—ask us if you would know the
exact amount, no one else knows—
and a very small margin of profit
will keep the wheels going round.
We can buy where anyone else can
buy, as much and as cheaply.
To maintain that we will under
sell everybody on everything all the
time would be an insult to your
intellgience. It can't be success
fully done as you know, but we will
sell for less more times than we
will ask more.
It is the average that counts, and
straight through the line our aver
age price will save you money.
We know that hard work, court
eous and efficient service, fair and
honest methods and the support of
a host of loyal friends will make
this business a success.

Night Work Discontinued
Nineteen out of twenty night trips
made by the doctor could be avoid
ed if people show the proper consid
eration for his welfare. It is also
a great advantage to the sick person
to begin tréatment before night
comes on.
As a matter of personal protec
tion, I have discontinued night
work, excepting confinement case9.

Repairs Are a Necessity
They Shouldn't be Neglected
Don't let those farm buildings run down. It is
expensive not to keep up repairs. A small bill of
lumber will keep your buildings in shape. A large
stock of building material now on hand.

to do so at once to insure prompt delivery.
